A New Survey From Netflix Claims Latina Moms Have Hilarious Ways Of Making Time For TV

Every single time I call my mom on the phone and ask her what she’s doing she always says the same thing: “Estoy limpiando!” And I believe her — until now. Netflix just released new data that proves some moms aren’t busy cleaning or cooking every second. They’re actually taking a lot of “me time” to catch up on a lot of our favorite shows.

According to a recent survey by Netflix*, 72 percent of Latina moms say that in order to be happy and/or more relaxed, they need at least one to three hours a day of “me time.” For many of them, that means watching TV. Hmm… so when do they sneak in time to watch TV?

*It’s a survey about streaming by Netflix, so take it with a grain of salt.

Yes, moms are busy people. We know that, but they still need to be entertained just like the rest of us. In fact, some moms believe that making time for themselves makes them a better parents (at least 15 percent said that). Another 40 percent say that watching their favorite shows, which includes “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Walking Dead,” and “Friends,” among others, helps them escape all the children’s programming that they normally watch.

This makes so much sense now! No wonder she’s in there forever. No one bothers you while you’re in there. Perfect time to catch up on “Jane The Virgin.”

This is just low… but understandable, especially if you’ve ever faked an illness to skip school.

If you’re ever wondering where your mom is, check the pantry, closet, basement or laundry room. Or just unplug the wi-fi. She’ll come out in no time.

Richard Ramirez, a.k.a. The Night Stalker, spent the summer of 1985 terrorizing Los Angeles. Ramirez murdered 13 people during his reign of terror in Southern California. Netflix’s new docuseries is exploring the crime by interviewing law enforcement and family of the victims.

“Night Stalker: The Hunt For a Serial” killer is now streaming on Netflix.

“Night Stalker: The Hunt For a Serial Killer” is the latest Netflix docuseries diving into the true crimes that have shaped American society. Richard Ramirez is one of the most prolific serial killers of all time and single-handedly terrorized Los Angeles during the summer of 1985.

Ramirez fundamentally changed Los Angeles and the people who live there. The serial killer was an opportunistic killer. He would break into homes using unlocked doors and opened windows. Once inside, he would rape, murder, rob, and assault the people inside the home.

The documentary series explores just how Ramirez was able to keep law enforcement at bay for so long. The killer did not have a standard modus operandi. His victims ran the gamut of gender, age, and race. There was no indicator as to who could be next. He also rarely used the same weapon when killing his victims. Some people were stabbed to death while others were strangled and others still were bludgeoned.

While not the first telling of Ramirez’s story, it is the most terrifying account to date.

“Victims ranged in age from 6 to 82,” director Tiller Russell told PEOPLE. “Men, women, and children. The murder weapons were wildly different. There were guns, knives, hammers, and tire irons. There was this sort of feeling that whoever you were, that anybody could be a victim and anybody could be next.”

Family members of the various victims speak in the documentary series about learning of the horror committed to them. People remember grandparents and neighbors killed by Ramirez. All the while, police followed every lead to make sure they left no stone unturned.

“Night Stalker: The Hunt For a Serial Killer” is now streaming on Netflix.

Wilmer Valderrama and Demi Lovato don’t let a little thing like emotional baggage get in the way of their careers. The famous former couple proved that exes can actually be friends when they worked together on the new Netflix animated movie, “Charming”, that premiered on Friday.

Not only did Lovato and Valderrama co-star in the children’s movie together, but they played lovers. And not just lovers, but soulmates.

It looks like Lovato and Valderrama truly decided to remain friendly and supportive of each other after their breakup in 2016. Which in itself is a rarity!

In “Charming”, Valderrama voices a spoiled Prince who is “cursed” to have every woman fall in love-at-first sight with him until his 21st birthday.

When the project was announced in 2015, Valderrama was extremely excited about the opportunity to represent greater diversity in a children’s movie. “We’ve all been waiting so long to see a Latin princess represented in an animated fairy tale,” he told Deadline. “I’m grateful to the enlightened producer John Williams for anointing me as the first Latin prince.”

Lovato plays a Lenore, a savvy street urchin who is also cursed to never find love. Together, the unlikely duo are tasked with going on a quest to break Charming’s curse so he can save the kingdom.

When discussing their previous relationship in the past, Lovato and Valderrama have been nothing but gracious.

In fact, Demi Lovato recently told Harper’s Bazaar that she’s happy for Valderrama and his new fiancée, Amanda Pacheco. “I’m really happy for him and I wish him nothing but the best, but we’re not in each other’s lives, haven’t spoken in a long time,” she admitted.

She continued: “But I think I needed that because I needed to learn to be okay on my own. When you get into a relationship with somebody at that young of an age and then you spend six years with somebody, you don’t really get to learn about yourself.”

When Lovato has talked about the reasons behind their split before, she’s always maintained that it had “nothing to do with falling out of love”.

“The sparks never faded, but there are issues that I haven’t conquered yet that I know I won’t conquer if I’m relying on somebody else to take care of the loneliness,” said Lovato in her 2017 documentary, “Simply Complicated”.

But Lovato and Valderrama aren’t the only reason to queue up this flick. The movie also stars Ashley Tisdale as Cinderella, Avril Lavigne as Snow White, and Chinese popstar phenomenon G.E.M. as Sleeping Beauty.
