    Carlos once pretended that this super hot-chick with long blonde hair and a swimsuit model figure was his wife in an early show.  Now, he has his brother and mother on as guests from time to time.  Is he for real or are these folks just more actors?

    The wife...Amy...is the real wife.  I found this out by watching the Mind Of Mencia DVD set.  Also the brother...Joseph is the real brother.  Also found this out by watching the DVD...also can be seen on the MotherLoader at Comedy Central .com. 

    His mother...not his real mom from what I can tell.  The woman is usually credited in the credits, and I think he has had two different actresses paying her...I think.

    No Joseph is his BROTHER.  Watch the behind the scenes or the DVD's.  Carlos CLEARLY states that Joseph is his brother...the oldest at that even.

    No he's techinically Carlos's cousin but they were raised together so Carlos calls him his brother. We know that they are related and his wife shown in the show is really his wife but the woman who played his mother is an actress.

    No Carlos was raised by his aunt and uncle who were unable to have children (so he was rasied with no one).  Joseph is the first (or second) of 17 kids where Carlos is the last of 17. 

    If you have 'proof' of your claims...please link me to it...I am all ears.  Everything from Carlos & Jospeh (themselves and official sites) indicate brothers and not cousins.  Just because wikipedia or imdb says it is one way does not mean it is true.

    Heck people still send me a PM daily to tell me to change his birth name bacause wikipenda says so...guess what they are WRONG.

    ok, let's just agree that Joseph is a brother-cousin. it really doesn't matter, the point is that he is really related to Carlos.

    Exactly our point. On wikipedia, I think it mentions that his mother appears on the show occasionally.

    I'm wondering if "Carlo's sister" in the Osama Bin Laden sketch is really his sister.
