20 Times “Lizzie McGuire’s” Miranda Sanchez Brought The Real To The Real To Disney Channel

Mexican-American Miranda Sanchez might not have been the titular lead of “Lizzie McGuire” but she was undoubtedly the character with the most heart, wit and lessons. Here’s a look at the character who brought all the realness to Disney channel’s best show.

1. That time she dealt with body dysmorphia.

In the episode “Inner Beauty” Miranda struggles with her self-image after seeing a photo of herself. The whole episode ended up sending Miranda into an unhealthy tailspin so bad that she…

2. She tried to deal with her body dysmorphia by not eating and explained why.

After wanting to make sure that she looked super skinny for a music video project Gordo was shooting,  Miranda started skipping meals and nearly passed out during dance practice. After a sit down with her friends, Miranda spoke honestly about why she felt the way she did.

3. The time she didn’t  get a Valentine’s Day card.

And gave the commercial holiday a great big middle finger and stuck out her tongue.

4. That time she predicted the future of all mean “cool kids.”

It was a bit harsh, but the moment, like most MIranda moments, did it’s job in making sure Lizzie always remembered where they were headed. 

5. When she reminded Gordo that being grown up is not that great.

CREDIT: Disney Channel

Literally never a truer word has been spoken. Because meanwhile the rest of us have to deal with taxes.

6. That time she was smarter than her art teacher

CREDIT: Disney Channel

I mean really how many times have you sat in a class and wondered why you had to do something instead of dream about N’Sync.

7. And that time she totally nailed the feelings that come with growing up.

CREDIT: Disney Channel

Yes, girl yes. This is the definition of growing up and out of your adolescence. 

8. When she did spider braids before girls at Coachella.

And rocked so many other hair styles you wouldn’t dare to pull off. Remember her pom pom phase?

9. When she was all like “I’m stronger than the person you think I am.”

CREDIT: Disney Channel

It’s hard being friends with someone who always gets to take center stage of your life, we get it Miranda. This episode of her sticking up for herself to her own BFF was so real. 

10. When her side eye was so on point with Gordo.

Miranda’s side eye game was actually always so on point with Gordo. Those two had a rocky relationship and Miranda was always around to remind him to chill it. 

11. When she was the best friend ever for building her friend up.

CREDIT: Disney Channel

Even if it was the cheesiest chant ever and Lizzie acted selfish at times, Miranda was a great friend.

12. That time when Lizzie and Gordo went to Italy and she passed to chill in Mexico.

CREDIT: Disney Channel

Fans of Miranda were super bummed to find Miranda nixed from the “Lizzie McGuire Movie” but we got when we learend that she’d ditched the show to be with her family in Mexico.

13. When Lizzie overreacted about getting a bra and Miranda was like “chillll.”

That time, Lizzie  decided that in order to be popular she needed a bra was the most important episode ever. Mostly because Miranda was mortified to find her friend was so shallow.

14. And that time when she was this honest with Lizzie about her outfit.

CREDIT: Disney Channel

Every friend needs a BFF who will tell her truth about her outfit chose. While this one was forced upon Lizzie on a very important day, Miranda was not afraid to get real.

15. When, LBR, she brought better moves to that “Play” music video than Lizzie.

CREDIT: Disney Channel

There’s a reason why they put Miranda in the front for this dance scene. And it has absolutely everything to do with Lizzie’s average moves ( sorry Lizzie!)

16. When she was too cool to hurt the environment

CREDIT: Disney Channel

That faux leather and fur coat made the funky combination look just so damn good.

17. When she did the grunge look better than Lizzie

CREDIT: Disney Channel

Lizzie’s style was always cute and fashion foraward but Miranda always pushed the status-quo with her edge. 

18. That time she was all about the rebelde.

CREDIT: Disney Channel

Can you deny that this “rebel” shit was not the ultimate look of the series? Didn’t think so. 

19. That time she freaked out after getting a B in class.

CREDIT: Disney Channel

Miranda is every child of immigrants who did not come all of this way for their kid to get a B in class. Gordo might have been the self-proclaimed group of the squad’s trio but Miranda was undoubtedly the cool beans school star Gordo wanted to be. 

20. The times her sense of humor was always better than everyone else.

“Where is Lizzie? She never misses lunch. It’s her favorite class!”

Disgraced Olivia Jade Made An Instagram Comeback To Wish Cheating Aunt Becky– I Mean Lori Loughlin– A Happy Bday

@forgiveloriloughlin / @bella / Instagram
Since news of the college bribery admissions scandal broke back in March, fans of drama have watched as former “Full House” actress Lori Loughlin fell frame the graces of her fans and daughters. Tabloids have closely kept us abreast on just how much or little contact Loughlin and her daughters in particular have had with eachother enough to make it all seem a bit like a telenovela. That is, a telenovela that prompts all kinds of questions when any main character’s family has a falling out. 
 
And yet, over the weekend, an Instagram post is providing that there’s nothing like a good ‘ol birthday post and a chance to post a cute #Throwback to prove that public disgrace can be fickle.

The embattled Full House actress, also known as Aunt Becky, turned 55 on Sunday and her daughters broke their social media silence to wish their mother a happy birthday. 

Since news broke earlier this year that she and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannuli were among dozens of parents involved in a college admissions cheating scandal, they’ve been keeping a low profile. Loughlin and Giannuli have pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit fraud and money laundering for allegedly paying up $500,000 to get their daughters into the University of California. Each charge could lead to up to 20 years in prison. 

Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade took to Instagram to wish Loughlin a happy birthday, captioning the photo, “one day late. happy birthday. i love you so much ❤️” 

Jade, who reportedly felt “resentful” toward her parents for their involvement in the college admission scandal, also suffered backlash because of the scandal. The YouTube beauty vlogger and social media influencer not only lost fans and followers, but she also lost many brand partnerships as well. Brands like Sephora and Lulus cut ties with her immediately following the scandal. 

It was also reported earlier this month that Loughlin and her daughters weren’t on the best terms post-college admissions scandal but were working on it.  “Olivia was angry with her parents at first but now realizes that they were just trying to do what’s best for her, a source told Us Weekly. “Olivia loves her mom and dad very much but is especially close to Lori.” 

Loughlin’s other daughter, Bella Giannulli, also shared a sweet photo of the two and captioned her photo, “happy birthday mama. I love you ❤️”

happy birthday mama. I love you ❤️

A post shared by Bella Giannulli (@bella) on

Looks like Loughlin is getting a lot of birthday lovin’ despite what the headlines have said about her earlier this year.

In fact, even fellow Full House and Fuller House co-star Candace Cameron Bure, who’s been supportive of Loughlin during this scandalous time, commented on Bella’s post and wrote, “😘💕😘💕 Happy birthday to your mama!!!!!!!” 

Fans and close friends alike have also taken to Twitter to wish Aunt Becky the happiest of birthdays. 

“Happy Birthday to my forever friend with a heart of gold. Love you!,” writes Erin Krakow, who starred alongside Loughlin in the Lifetime series When Calls the Heart, in her caption. She shared the same photo on Twitter and the replies were a mix of negative and positive comments–no surprise there, tbh. 

Fans on Twitter pointed out that supporting your friends through the good times and the bad times (or the times when you’re caught bribing your kids into college) isn’t “easy, but [it’s] truly important.” 

They’re all sweet photos and posts, but they di beg the question of how much time must pass for the court of public opinion to forget its grievances against a problematic person. After all, for her part in the scandal, Loughlin wittingly affected the futures and college education attendance of thousands of college applicants, many of who had never and may never experience even a touch of the privilege her daughters did.

Others responded to the actress asking her to pass on their words of encouragement to Loughlin and sharing that they “miss her terribly.”

“I’m praying for you,” one Twitter fan wrote. Don’t worry guys, she’ll be fine. 

A fan shared a sweet post about Loughlin’s impact on her life and how 55 has never looked so good (on that, we can agree on).

“lori you have been my role model for quite some time, most of my life. i grew up watching you and i first fell in love with you and your character aunt becky,” the fan wrote in a series of tweets. 

More fans continued to rally behind her good friend Lifetime co-star, calling her a “faithful friend,” and wishing Loughlin the best at 55.

“Wishing Lori the very best in the next year! Missing you!,” @MargieTomaszew2 wrote in her tweet. Damn, fans REALLY miss her. 

Another fan advised Loughlin to not let the comments by “haters bring you down.”

“When we are at our lowest we find out who our true friends are. Happy Birthday, Lori!,” she continued in her tweet. Yeah, don’t let comments by the “haters” aka people who actually had to work their way to get into college bring you down, Loughlin. 

Again, more fans kept telling Loughlin just how much they missed her on her birthday.

“Happy Birthday Lori. It’s unfair, we miss you so much,” wrote on Twitter fan. Do you know what’s also unfair? Well, you already know what we’re going to say…

Despite the aftermath of the college admissions scandal, Aunt Becky still low-key celebrated her birthday and some fans won’t let her have even that. 

I mean, the gif says it all really. The resemblance to Piper is also uncanny. 

People reported that on Loughlin’s birthday, the Fuller House actress and her husband “were spotted in Los Angeles on their way to an early morning service at the Church of the Good Sheperd in Beverly Hills.” After the service, Loughlin reportedly hosted an intimate birthday celebration with her husband, daughters, and a few other friends. 

Loughlin and her husband are scheduled to next appear in court on August 27.

SPOILER ALERTS: The Latest Episode Of HBO’s ‘Los Espookys’ Is Proof It Could Surpass GOT In Cult Status

HBO

On June 13 2019, HBO premiered “Los Espookys,” it’s Spanish-language horror comedy from the mind of Fred Armisen. Needless to say, we were immediate fans. Between the subtly hilarious script and its impeccable delivery, the series proved from episode one that it’s worth the watch. Don’t even get us started on how much we love the horror elements we’ve seen so far.

The second episode of “Los Espookys” is just as addictive and entertaining as the first. Titled “El Espanto de la Herencia,” the episode is so good, it demands a recap.

Here are some of the most spooky and most hysterical parts of “Los Espookys” episode two.

Last week, we met Renaldo, Úrsula, Tati and Andrés, four friends bonded by their love of horror.

HBO

The gang was encouraged by Renaldo’s uncle, Tio Tico, to pursue that passion and turn it into a career. Calling themselves Los Espookys, they were approached by a mysterious woman who wants to use their terrifying talents. With this in mind, it’s time to brainstorm how they’ll approach this next job.

However, before we can check in with Los Espookys, the series introduces us to the US Ambassador.

Horror DNA

Her name is US Ambassador Melanie Gibbons and she’s received an important letter. The letter — which is in Spanish, not coded as she first suspects — informs her that her friend Ignacio Ferracuti has died. However, he’s left his 18.9 billion peso fortune to whoever can survive a night in his haunted mansion.

To borrow Ambassador Gibbons words, “Okay, twist!” She’s been chosen as one of five strangers to compete for his fortune. It’s all very exciting for her.

Similarily, Los Espookys are excited for this upcoming challenge.

Horror DNA

We finally get to see to the official Los Espookys headquarters — which happens to be Renaldo’s garage. While Andrés pushes for avant-garde and challanging tricks, Renaldo wants to stick to the basics. Úrsula just wants confirmation that they’re going to be paid.

Meanwhile, back in LA, Tio Tico is in an unusual situation.

Horror DNA

Following last week’s encounter at a major celebrity party, Tico has been mistaken for an elusive artist. Due to this mix-up, he’s been roped into speaking at an art panel. The whole thing has snowballed and Tio Tico is just along for the ride.

Unfortunately, Andrés is finding it hard to balance his life as Prince of Chocolate and his spooky calling.

HBO

Being the heir to a chocolate fortune is hard. As his boyfriend reminds him, Andrés has duties he needs to commit to or else he will be removed as heir. However, the curious man is preoccupied with uncovering the mystery of his birth and his new side gig. What is a Chocolate Prince to do?

Finally, it’s the big night!

Horror DNA

Too bad Renaldo has been ditched by the other members of Los Espookys. Andrés, Úrsula y Tati have all shown up last minute, leaving Renaldo to set up. What’s worse, nobody hired the actors they need so Renaldo has to step in as the creepy butler. Let’s just say, the role is out of his range.

Still, the goal of the haunted house is to get rid of one contestant in particular. The Mysterious Woman announces to Los Espookys that Sr. Ferracuti’s son is a contestant and must not win. However, he seems impossible to shake with the frankly unimpressive scares.

Los Espookys are in a funk and they need some serious rallying.

HBO

Andrés is obsessed with the dead ends he keeps getting in his search for his origin. Úrsula is obsessed with getting paid. Tati is obsessed with Snap Chatting her shady internet boyfriend.

Renaldo is about to give up but some unexpectedly good advise from Tati inspires him. After a rallying call from Renaldo, Los Espookys are back. They’re going to pull off the scariest trick they can.

We don’t want to give away the ending, but the episode wraps up with the possibility of more jobs in their future.

HBO

Will Tati continue her internet relationship? Will Andrés learn the origins of his birth? What sort of adventure will Los Spookys get into next week? We’ll have to watch to find out.
