by Keeli Parkey

Taking a break from work gives you time to reflect on many things. While she is on her hiatus from “The Talk,” television personality Carrie Ann Inaba is looking back on the fun she has had in the past.

On Tuesday, Aug. 17, she posted a short video clip of her and another famous television personality having fun at the gym. That television personality is comedian Guillermo Rodriguez. Fans of the late night show “Jimmy Kimmel Live” will recognize Rodriquez as the show’s security guard. He also occasionally presents his popular segment, “Guillermo’s Hollywood Round-Up,” according to the website of the ABC network.

In her social media post, Carrie Ann Inaba and Rodriquez appear to be having a lot of fun. Along with the video, she also added the caption: “That time @iamguillermo and I did a workout together… lol. Fun times. Lol. We laughed more than we got our sweat on tho….”

In her caption, Inaba also reminded fans about something that is very important for all of us to do each day if we can. “Have you got your giggle on today?”

Carrie Ann Inaba’s workout pal, Guillermo Rodriguez, began his tenure on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” when the show premiered in 2003. While his duties were first said to be those of a parking lot security guard, he quickly became a correspondent for the popular late night show. When he isn’t having laughs with Kimmel or interviewing celebrities, Rodriquez enjoys spending time with his Chihuahuas, Paco and Pepe, and watching soccer. He also enjoys eating Italian food and Mexican food.
