Jane the Virgin’ is Back With a ‘Shocking Twist’

by

Jane the Virgin is back! After a holiday break that took far too long in our opinion, the Villanueva women are back and better than ever.
When we last left them in chapter 30, it was Christmas. Jane (Gina Rodriguez) was still angry at Rafael (Justin Baldoni) for hiring a witness to lie for her ex, Michael (Brett Dier). If that’s not enough drama, Xiomara (Andrea Navedo) has taken it upon herself to aid her boyfriend and father of her child, Rogelio (Jaime Camil), in his quest to live on a more frugal budget until he can find his next passion project. Jane, who is juggling with both motherhood and grad school, runs into her creative writing classmate Wesley Masters, who wrote the scathing story about the Solano’s just episodes ago. Moments later, she finds out that her father was the person behind her mysterious scholarship, which allowed her to attend the university in the first place. His aforementioned budget still intact.
Alba, The CW’s favorite grandmother (played by Ivonne Coll), spent most of the episode preoccupied with the waiting for the yes or no on a green card so she can stay in the United States. In the end, in a string of Christmas miracles, Alba receives her green card, Wesley is kicked out of the university, Rafael and Jane come to an understanding, and Rogelio finds his next passion project.
Now, in Chapter 31, we find Jane and Michael chatting awkwardly about Rafael and the tree topper only to find out that it was just a dream. Mateo, Jane’s son  is not sleeping well and Jane refuses to let him cry it out. Liliana De La Vega (Rita Moreno), Jane’s other grandma, comes to visit as Jane begins her first class as a teaching assistant. Her class doesn’t go as planned because the students didn’t read Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice over the break. Jane has also been tasked with keeping the secret that her grandfather has left Rita for another man. After another night of staying up with a crying Mateo, Jane cannot keep the secret for long, confessing to Xiomara over coffee, who in turn tells Alba the very next day.
Jane’s next class, however, goes much better. She excites a greater emotion out of her students and comes home to find Rogelio believing that his father is dying, and so Jane must tell him the truth. Rogelio hatches a plan to make his mother see that he is okay with his father’s sexuality. Jane is still having trouble getting Mateo to sleep through the night and every woman in the house is suffering because when Mateo is awake and crying they are unable to sleep through the noise.
Michael and his partner begin closing in on Luisa’s mother, who the police believe faked her suicide and is still alive running a drug ring. Luisa (Yara Martinez) is eager to help with the investigation because she wants to meet her mother, but she also has a crush on Michael’s partner. Petra (Yael Grobglas) considers taking the plea deal for a murder she did not commit, while Alba finally convinces Jane to try the “cry it out” method and to her surprise, it works.
With Mateo’s sleep schedule under control, Jane challenges the star basketball player to a game in order to get him to write the paper she assigned. Jane loses, but her student is so impressed by her effort that he writes it anyway and Jane earns the respect of him and the other basketball players in the class.
The episode ends with more than one shocking twist and the promise to keep the audience on the edge of their seats for the remainder of the season. Rafael has discovered that his mother, not his sister’s, is the person behind the drug ring. Michael’s Partner kisses Luisa back and Petra finally gets her mother to admit to committing the murder she almost took the blame for.  With Rafael, Luisa, Jane, and her family and Michael and his investigation, the rest of the season is sure to be a wild ride.

Jane the Virgin Hair Tutorials

by

With the success of Jane the Virgin, on-set stylists Michelle Rene Elam, who is the Department Head Hair, and Tena Parker Baker, who is the Key Hair, were kind enough to share their backstage secrets for achieving some of the cast’s signature hairstyles!
Gina Rodriguez/Jane by Michelle Rene Elam 
Gina Rodriguez plays Jane, who likes to keep her style natural and simple. After all, her life is full of events and hard work; however, by no means does Jane have a dull personality. She is a young and dynamic woman always on the lookout for fun. To keep Jane feeling and looking lively, it’s important to maintain the upkeeps for her lovely tresses. The way in which Michelle Rene Elam goes about taking care of Rodriguez’s character is by using heat protectant sprays, particularly White Sands Liquid Texture Firm Thermal Styling Spray. Following suit, Elam uses Paul Mitchell Pro Tools Neuro Unclipped 1.25” Styling Cone to set Jane’s beautiful and bountiful mane, which often involves Elam using her T3 Singlepass styling iron to flatten the roots and keep them close to Jane’s head.
Elam is fully equipped and prepared for any hair stressing situation because she lays out multiple possible situations that may be encountered.
“Maintaining her hair through the day requires different options depending on the humid or dry weather, how long the day of work is, and how many hair changes we have,” said Elam.
The products that Elam keeps nearby include Moroccanoil treatment oil and White Sands Orchids Oil, which control the unruliness while also giving hair an extra shine. On days when Jane’s hair has really gone through its course, Elam knows that Oribe Supershine Light Moisturizing Crème is what’s needed. Elam also uses Aerogel Styling Spray or Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium to seal Jane’s hair. As for hairstyles, such as a ponytail, Elam uses a wooden dry brush with hairspray to keep everything in check. To wrap everything up, Elam keeps in mind that Rodriguez’s mane is – what she refers to as – “very particular of shampoos.” So naturally, wherever Elam goes she is sure to carry Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo and Seaweed Bath Co. Balancing Argan Shampoo with her.

72nd Annual Golden Globe Winners

by

The 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards saw big wins for films Boyhood, The Theory of Everything, and Birdman—but also for rising star Gina Rodriguez. The 30-year-old’s portrayal of Jane Villanueva in the CW’s new series Jane the Virgin won her her first Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, beating out like Lena Dunham (Girls), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), and Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black).
“This award is so much more than myself. It represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes,” Rodriguez said, teary-eyed, during her acceptance speech. “My father used to tell me to say every morning that today is going to be a great day. I can and I will. Well, Dad, today’s a great day. I can and I did.”
EddieRedmayne
It was also a big night for Eddie Redmayne, who won Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama for his incredibly heartbreaking portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. The 33-year-old English actor beat out other excellent actors including Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game), Steve Carell (Foxcatcher), David Oyelowo (Selma), and Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler).
A noteworthy moment of the night was when Transparent won for Best TV Comedy and director Jill Soloway gave a touching acceptance speech about the transgender community. “I want to thank the trans community. They are our family and they make this possible,” she said. “This award is dedicated to the memory of Leelah Alcorn, and too many trans people who died too young.”
George Clooney was also presented the Cecil B. DeMille award for his “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment,” and Kevin Spacey finally won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Series, Drama, for his role in the Netflix-exclusive series House of Cards.
