The 15 Best Rogelio De La Vega Moments From “Jane The Virgin”

Where do I even start with my love for Rogelio De La Vega on “Jane the Virgin”?! In my opinion, he is one of the funniest characters on television right now.

THERE, I SAID IT.

Jane’s charmingly vain father is everything. If you aren’t watching this show, what in the world is wrong with you?! ¡Vámonos!

In honor of my favorite TV dad, here are 15 of Rogelio’s best moments.

1. That time he casually threw out the phrase “making love.”

Well you don’t have to twist this arm!

2. He’s the best at encouraging Xo, especially when it comes to Jane.

This is honestly the highest of compliments coming from Rogelio.

3. When he did his dope handshake with Michael.

Their bromance is seriously one for the books. The stuff legends are made of. When will Hollywood give the people what they want, a spinoff buddy cop movie starring Michael and Rogelio.

4. Every time he uses “hashtag” in a sentence.

He’s up on the trendy lingo and he wants you to know it.

5. When he refused to be sassed by anyone.

You tell ’em, Rogelio! Ain’t nobody going to mess with him.

6. Every time he was oh-so-humble.

Hey, when you got it, flaunt it!

7. When he understood the importance of family, especially because it was also important to Xo.

TEARS. STREAMING. DOWN MY FACE. I’m not sure whether I want Rogelio to adopt me or marry me. It’s hard to say. And confusing, so I’m not going to think about it much longer.

8. When he told Abuela she’s still got it going on.

Alba can get it! A spin-off series where these two ride into the sunset? I could dig it.

9. When he was all of us, all of the time.

Credit: CW

Aren’t we all?! 24/7 BABY.

10. When he explained the fundamentals of Broadway and Bradley Cooper.

Credit: CW

I love that Rogelio thinks Bradley Cooper is cool. It’s great.

11. When he loved shopping as much as all of us.

Credit: CW

Oh, the importance of wearing new pants! The cure to those midweek blahs! We totally get it.

12. When he was addicted to technology, like all of us.

Credit: CW

But can a person really have too many phones?

13. When he knew the importance of flattering angles.

Credit: CW

Lighting is everything, even when you’re kidnapped by a deranged stalker and are held at gunpoint.

14. When he asked Xo the question we were all thinking.

Credit: CW

You’ve got to appreciate a straightforward man.

15. Last but not least, when we were #blessed with a Britney cameo and he knew it was time to let Britney Spears fly on her own.

Praise you, Rogelio. May you never change because you are truly perfect.

Netflix’s ‘Gentefied’ Renewed For Season 2, Fans Overjoyed

Any and all news is welcomed right now and Netflix came through this week. “Gentefied” is coming back for a second season and this is absolutely not a drill. Soon we will be back in Boyle Heights with Ana, Chris, Erik, and the rest of the cast we have come to love so much.

Netflix has confirmed “Gentefied” for a second season.

The show is a fan favorite for Netflix with praise and love pouring in for the groundbreaking show. “Gentefied” is set in Boyle Heights and it is all about the fight against gentrification. The show premiered this year to big fanfare and excitement from Latino Netflix users. The show, created by Marvin Lemus and Linda Yvette Chávez, was picked up for an eight-episode run of the 30-minute show.

The show is one of the most relevant portrayals of the Latino experience in the 21st century.

The show highlights the plight of gentrification on communities across the U.S. Boyle Heights in Los Angeles has been the center of growing tension as the neighborhood slowly gentrifies. Rising rents have forced some residents and businesses to close and leave because of the changing demographic in the neighborhood.

Hearts are full as everyone celebrates the news of a whole new season.

The show originally premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival as a digital series. Lemus and Chávez debuted the show and it was an instant hit with festival-goers. After three years of waiting, the show was released by Netflix and became a national hit. The show has shone a light on the cost of gentrification for more Americans than knew about it before the show aired.

Low key, it has made for perfect binge-watching during this quarantine.

There isn’t a whole lot any of us can do at the moment. Most of us are at home because of self-isolation and social distancing guidelines designed to save lives during the pandemic. Might as well us some of your time to watch and support and very important moment in our community. This kind of representation is something that Latinos have been asking for.

While excited, some fans want more, like a cross-over with Starz’s “Vida.”

Now, just to be clear, we are not concerned with what it takes to make this happen. Netflix and Starz can come up with the actual plan. We are just going to be here waiting to be heard so we can all have the kind of cross-over the world deserves. Just imagine a chance for those two shows to collide in Latino excellence.

Now we wait for an air date.

We are patient. We will be here when you are ready. All you have to do is let us know when to tune in and you know we are coming through.

‘Jane The Virgin’ Is The Perfect Representation Of What Happens With Three Generations Of Moms Live Together

Jane The Virgin / The CW

“Jane the Virgin” doesn’t just give us a telenovela where every mother is a grounded and developed character. It shows America what single latinidad motherhood looks like from birth to vieja-hood. From the wisdom of abuela Alba, to the free spirit of Xiomara and the diplomatic Jane, we see a taste of our own traditions and the evolving methods of Latina motherhood in different generations.

While you have probably never accidentally been artificially inseminated, you’ve definitely felt the same love shown by these tv mamas. They are always there for each other to lift each other up and make life as great as possible. Moms are just like that. Happy Mother’s Day. Even though we might be separated in quarantine, we can still give our moms a sweet memory on this day. Call her and tell her you love her.

We first meet the Villanueva women with their eyes glued to a telenovela, like most Latino families.

No matter how old you are or how cheesy they are, telenovelas with your mom and abuela are moments we all cherish.

Legit, we have been snuggling with the most important women of our lives for some incredible telenovela drama since we were little kids.

Jane the Virgin / The CW

The Villanueva women even have a long-standing Mother’s Day tradition of binge-watching an entire telenovela series and that’s magical.

ICYMI, Jane was accidentally, artificially inseminated, which is not common.

Jane the Virgin / The CW

Like many of our families, Jane was taught that her virginity was sacred. Unfortunately, a mishap led to her pregnancy without sex. Luckily for Jane and us, Latino families are strong units and we all pitch in when we need to.

But with the help of her mom and abuela, she makes it work.

Jane the Virgin / The CW

They support her going back to grad school. You can bet your mom would babysit your kid while you went back to school, too. Jane’s parenting style is all about leading by example and staying rooted in her dreams pre-Mateo.

We can relate to mami y abuela being high key chismosas.

Jane the Virgin / The CW

Privacy? What privacy?! Even when Jane goes onto the porch to have a “private” conversation, there’s no escaping the curious eyes of the women in her house. If you are feeling triggered, you aren’t alone.

While all three Villanueva women live under the same roof, they have very different parenting styles. Alba is all about the tough love.

Jane the Virgin / The CW

Alba, like our abuelas, like to keep things old-school. Like, she raised your mom so she clearly knows how to raise a child. There isn’t anything wrong with her methods of raising a child. but some times you just have to do things yourself. Jane might not take all of her advice, but that’s just how the modern family unit works, right?

Xiomara, like our moms, lives like a mama bear ready to protect her child no matter what.

Jane the Virgin / The CW

How many times has your mother confronted someone who was making your life difficult? You might feel embarrassed that she is going ham on your teacher or boss, but it is all because she loves you. Let her go all Xo on them. She is only trying to make sure you are always happy.

Whenever there is a hard moment in anyone’s life, mom is always there to do what she can.

Jane the Virgin / The CW

You might have a serious illness or facing some kind of legal trouble and things seem hopeless. However, mom will do anything to make it a little bit better for you. We stick together, we pray together, and put faith in each other.

However you’re celebrating Mother’s Day, consider binge-watching “Jane the Virgin” with your own mom and abuela.

Now, go call your mother because she loves to hear from you.
