Biography

Early life and career

Dos Santos was born in St. Louis, Missourimarker. Her family moved to San Diego, Californiamarker the same year she was born. She graduated from Poway High Schoolmarker in Poway, Californiamarker, then continued on to Loyola Marymount Universitymarker in Los Angelesmarker where she earned a Bachelor of Art degree in communications. After college she went to work for various Southern California newspapers as a reporter and an editor before moving on to the E! Network where she got the "Watch with Kristin" site.

Dos Santos has a blog on E!’s website where she talks about TV shows with the help of her reporters and interns. Originally using a live interactive chat with fans where she takes questions about their favorite shows, sometimes involving spoilers for upcoming episodes, the chat transcripts used to be posted on the website afterward. She also used to post a weekly column on Fridays which was an often lengthy article about shows, sometimes containing exclusive interviews. However, when The E! website changed in 2006, so did the "Watch With Kristin" area. As of 2007, there is a blog which is updated daily with more features such as Vine videos, Tater Tops Awards (which are her awards where fan votes according to their opinion unlike the Emmys), Save It or Sink It votes for new shows, and a weekly non-live chat Q&A. Kristin appears in regular segments for E! News on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 7pm, as well as a regular show on E! Online’s The Vine, which is also accessible from their website.

In addition to her work on E!, Dos Santos takes small acting roles whenever she can. She has appeared in the television programs Summerland, Heroes, Tru Calling and Felicity. She also played a dead body for one episode of Six Feet Under. She recently played "The 30s Woman", a dead body that comes back to life in the third episode of Pushing Daisies.

Personal life

On July 14, 2007, she married Brazilian boyfriend João Dos Santos. As of September 2007, Kristin announced plans to use her married name and will now be known as Kristin Dos Santos. This marks the second time in her years at E! that she has changed her on-air name. Originally, her E! News segment was known as "Watch with Wanda," but when knowledge of her real name became public, her segment was changed to "Watch with Kristin."

On April 5, 2009, Dos Santos gave birth to a baby boy Luca Alexander Dos Santos. He's apparently named Luca Alexander because (a) Kristin and Joao love both names, (b) Alexander is a family name, and (c) Luca means bringer of light, and he was born just as the sun rose over the city.
