She obtained a Bachelor of Sciences in Biology (specialized in Zoology) from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid .
Obregￃﾳn has appeared in films from countries including Spain, France, United States and Italy but she is best known for her high-profile personal life and her career as a television actress most notably for her performances in the Spanish television series A las once en casa and Ana y los siete.

A staple of the Spanish prensa rosa or gossip press, Obregￃﾳn is also famous in Spain and Britain for a long relationship with Croatia striker Davor ￅﾠuker as well as a supposed liaison with the Real Madrid and England international football player David Beckham. This led to a spat with Beckham's wife Victoria who famously referred to the 50-year old as a "geriatric Barbie". Obregￃﾳn later denied any sexual misconduct on her part, but sued instead.
Obregￃﾳn found herself in the midst of controversy in 2007 following information disclosed by Interviￃﾺ, and subsequently published by the major newspapers in Spain: according to said media, an ostensibly distraught Obregￃﾳn allegedly called her bodyguard Eloy Sￃﾡnchez Barba in order to ask him to hire third parties to beat up or physically assault journalist Jaime Cantinzano, in reprisal for what she deemed an unacceptable public exposal of her teenage son. According to these sources of information, she said: "... but I don't want this done by just anyone, I want you to have los Miami doing this", in reference to a well-known criminal group established mainly in Madrid.Unbeknownst to her and Sￃﾡnchez Barba, the latter's telephone line had been tapped by the Spanish police in connection to their investigation of a hit job presumably coordinated by Sￃﾡnchez Barba months before.
