Angelica was born in Mexico City, Mexico. Her father was Venezuelan while her mother is half American and half Mexican who was born in Louisiana. She has a Jewish grandfather. Angelica speaks English and Spanish fluently, and holds her own in French.

Angelica and her parents are featured in the 2007 book Televisa Presenta, which was published during the culmination of the Network’s golden anniversary.
After the death of her father in 2005, this attention bothered her because she was constantly pestered by questions about her late father’s will and testament and concerns about what the will said her father’s young ‘spouse’ would receive after his death. She was overwhelmed to the point that she called for a meeting with all major television stations in Mexico and had them ask all the questions they wanted to ask, saying that if they did not ask then, they would never get answers because she planned on closing that chapter in her life because it was very painful to talk about something so private.

Since the early 1990s Angelica has been heavily pursued by paparazzi with a special focus on her love life. During the early stages of her life, Angelica was rumored and confirmed as the girlfriend of actor Alejandro Ibarra, with whom it was also rumored that she was engaged to and would soon marry.
However this was not the case, and they split around the time that she was cast for the role of Margarita in Bendita Mentira. This attention did not surprise Vale, who as a young girl had seen the toll that paparazzi’s attentions had taken on her mother and father’s marriage when, according to tabloids, her father had led a double life with a woman in Texas.
Later on, Vale was also linked to singer Jose Luis Figueroa, son of singer Joan Sebastian, during a time when he was still involved with Ninel Conde, (considered the hottest woman in the world by the Latin American press), but Angélica Vale denied these reports. Soon after, Ninel and Jose Luis broke up, and he stated it was because Ninel was too “thin” for his liking. Vale was also targeted much by claims that she liked to get involved with married men, and a story was published in 2006 about her having caused the separation of a family, because her then-current boyfriend had filed for divorce and his children had to live with seeing their father with another woman in public.
She also denied these allegations by claiming that the divorce had been filed one year prior to their relationship, and that his marriage was childless. Other rumors that have followed concerning her love life have been curiously sparked by a family friend, Cristina Saralegui, host of El Show de Cristina, who, when interviewing the cast of La Fea Más Bella, stated that she thought that ‘Don Fernando’ (Jaime Camil) and ‘Doña Lety’ (Angélica Vale) had really fallen in love, but she was cut off by Angélica María, also present, who changed the subject.
Angélica María also sparked rumors about her daughter because, she had made a habit of saying that she was waiting impatiently for her only child to make her a grandmother.Despite the constant intrusion into her life by paparazzi, Angélica Vale has managed to keep much of her life private, causing paparazzi to fabricate stories about her. She also had breast reduction around the time she finished La Fea Más Bella.
Angelica Vale Career
As a child, Vale portrayed the daughter of Mexican superstar Rigo Tovar in the movie El Gran Triunfo in 1981. Her family was banned from Televisa from 1982–1986 due to the launch of the independent production “LUPITA” on the rival TV Azteca network in which she played the title role. All the family members were blacklisted until 1986, year in which Ernesto Alonso intervened on their behalf. He was instrumental in getting the ban lifted, allowing the family to return to work on Televisa’s productions.
She portrayed Julieta in Soñadoras in 1998. In 2001, Angelica portrayed Wendy Nayeli Pérez in Amigas y rivales, both major roles which won acclaim for the actress. However, the soap opera La Fea Más Bella was her first starring role in any Mexican telenovela, though she had appeared in a number of Spanish language programs. As a comedian, Vale was one of the main celebrity impersonators in the comedy show La Parodia, from 2000 to 2005, but she chose to leave the show because she wanted to take some weeks off. She performed in El Privilegio de Mandar (The Privilege to Command)from 2005 to 2006 , which was a parody of an earlier soap opera starring Adela Noriega and was titled El Privilegio de Amar (The Privilege to Love).
Because telenovelas are wildly popular throughout the Hispanic world, they are very profitable, even when they do not rate so well, so when as of 2006, La Fea Más Bella became the number one Univision TV program according to 2006 Nielsen ratings. Angelica was looked upon by many producers as a “sure thing,”. It was also speculated that this success would open the door for greater things to come.
Angelica was one of eight people featured on the cover of People en Español’s “Los 50 Más Bellos” 2007 yearly issue. She was featured alone on the July 2007 cover of the magazine, reportedly more because of her recent popularity than because of her overall lengthy career (as many people in the business had stated that she was finally getting the international attention that she had come to deserve after laboring her talents so long and having very little ethical and commercial success).
People en Español announced in April 2007 that Vale would make a special guest appearance on Ugly Betty. She’d reprise her Lety role in the episode “A Tree Grows in Guadalajara,”but instead she played a Lety look-alike named Angélica, who was a dental assistant, in the season finale. Her mother officially left Televisa after both actresses appeared on Mujeres Asesinas in 2009. Angelica is still with Televisa, having most recently appeared on Parodiando.
Like her mother, Angelica is also a singer and has performed on the soundtrack for La fea más bella. She did several notable impersonations of another singer, Verónica Castro on La Parodia doing parodies of Castro’s show, Mala noche… no!. Vale is also listed in that program’s credits as a singer of its theme song. She has also done many impressions of singers Shakira, Thalía, and Laura León among others while she worked on Soñadoras and Amigas y rivales; she also used some of these once more in La Parodia.
After the finale of La Fea Más Bella in 2007, she sang one of the theme songs for the hit soap opera during an appearance on El Show de Cristina. In 2008, Angelica made the music album Navidad con Amigos with Ricardo Montaner. She has been heavily pursued by paparazzi since the early 1990s, with a special focus on her love life.
