Two years later she would star the telenovela Las noches de Luciana (“The Nights of Luciana”) and in 2006 would present the Colombian version of Dancing with the Stars, Bailando por un Sueño. Paola has also made brief appearances in films such as Lenny the Wonder Dog and Love in the Time of Cholera.

In 2007, Turbay played Isabel Vega on the CBS series Cane, which was canceled in May 2008 after only one season. In 2008 she has been participating as a recurring guest star on the ABC series The Secret Life of the American Teenager.[3] She also guested on the Showtime series Californication (Season 2, ep. 8, “Going Down and Out in Beverly Hills”) and had a recurring role as an LAPD detective during the fifth season of TNT‘s The Closer.
