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.

Aren’t we all?! 24/7 BABY.

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

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.

This Is A Story All About How A Viral Youtube Video Became The Next ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’

NBC

That’s right the 90s classic starring Will Smith is being flipped-turned upside down into a dramatic television series.

You might remember a year ago when a creative YouTube trailer of a dramatic version of the beloved series “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” went viral. When the original trailer first came out, fans could not stop talking about the accurate POV the series presented of the original NBC comedy. The fresh trailer clipped out the goofy and playful nature that a young Will Smith presented in the original series and revealed a much more dramatic reimagining of the series about a street-wise teen who moved from West Philadelphia to Bel Air, California. The trailer was such a success among fans that it went so far as to capture the attention of the original star of the series.

Now, the series that catapulted Will Smith to stardom is getting a remake.

The new series called “Bel-Air” is described as a “dramatic take” on the former series that ran for six seasons.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new series has been in the works for well over a year after the four-minute trailer went viral last March. The creator behind the series, Morgan Cooper, has been a longtime Fresh Prince fan and directed and posted the trailer which reimagined the series with much darker undertones. Cooper will produce the series alongside the original Will Smith. He will also co-write and direct.

What’s more, the new series is headed back home

Just a month ago the repackaged drama is being shopped to streamers and will be co-produced by Smith’s Westbrook Studios and the original producer of the series: Universal TV.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Peacock, Netflix and HBO Max were some of the top streamers bidding on the series. “HBO Max is the current streaming home for the original series,” THR reports. “Bel-Air is described as an hourlong dramatic retelling of the beloved ’90s sitcom that leans into the original premise of Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air. With a reimagined vision, Bel-Air will dive deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions and biases of what it means to be a Black man in America today, while still delivering the swagger and fun nods to the original show.”

Earlier this week, Will Smith announced on his YouTube Channel that the new series has been signed to Peacock, NBCUniversal’s streaming service.

“We have just officially closed the deal with Peacock with an unprecedented two-season order from a pitch,” Smith announced in the video. “I’ve been in this business for 30 years, and that does not happen.”

Speaking about his excitement over seeing his classic series get a modern twist, Smith said “The Carlton character — a Black, young Republican, modern-day? The heat that will be stirred up between these characters. It’s like, what’s the Hilary character in a world of Instagram and social media?”

Besides Smith, the new series will see original participants such as Quincy Jones, Benny Medina, and creators Andy & Susan Borowitzreturn return as executive producers.

You may remember that the original “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” series ran for six seasons from 1990-1996 on NBC. At the time it was produced by Jones and Warner Bros. TV and it starred young Will Smith as the titular character “Will Smith” and featured actors James Avery, Alfonso Ribeiro, Karyn Parsons, Tatyana M. Ali, Joseph Marcell, Janet Hubert-Whitten and Daphne Maxwell Reid.

Someone Leaked A Massive Bachelorette Spoiler About A New Black Lead And We Are Here To Taste That Té

Each year fans of “The Bachelorette” series wait in anticipation for the upcoming season which its host Chris Harrison always promises will be “unlike any other.” If you’re a fan, you know that this declaration rarely ever lives up to the hype. After all, year after year, Harrison makes the same promise but few seasons fail to live up to the dramatically cut trailers of the show or Harrison’s promises.

This year, however, a newly confirmed rumor suggests that when it comes to the series’ 16th season it might just be true.

According to reports the season’s original Bachelorette, Clare Crawley, has been replaced with Tayshia Adams.

In July, a viral Reddit thread posted by a Bachelor spoiler account leaked a story that we all thought was too good to be true: that this year’s lead Clare Crawley had been replaced by Tayshia Adams. On Monday, the Bachelor Nation confirmed the spoiler and revealed that Adams had replaced Clare Crawley as the Bachelorette. Crawley, a hairstylist will “still be a part of” the show’s upcoming season but her role will come to a quick end because she fell in love with one of the contestants.

According to ET, Crawley left the show on good terms with producers, but as filming is still underway it is unsure as to how Tayshia’s entrance into the series will play out. “Filming did not stop, but Tayshia got a fresh start as the Bachelorette,” ET reports. It has not been confirmed by ABC if new men have been brought into pursue Adams or if she will be left with Crawley’s original bunch.

Adams, who was one of the final two women in Colton Underwood’s season of “The Bachelor,” also starred in “Bachelor in Paradise” for season 6.

Season 16 of “The Bachelorette” started filming again in July after production was put on pause in March because of COVID-19 concerns. According to Refinery 29, “ABC announced that the film and crew would follow strict coronavirus safety protocols while filming in one location — the giant La Quinta Resort & Club in La Quinta, California — and then revealed the final list of 42 suitors who would compete for Crawley’s heart.”

It didn’t take long for Bachelor fans and alums to react excitedly with the new season’s epic plot twist.

“Holy freaking plot twist of Tayshia becoming the new Bachelorette and Clare apparently found love. I cannot confirm or deny… but I have thoughts,” Kaitlyn Bristowe, the eleventh season’s Bachelorette said in her Instagram Story. “I love both of these women. I was really excited to watch Clare’s journey. But like, that’s part of the contract. That’s one of the hardest things about going through the show, is you have to take each relationship to the necessary place to really know who your guy is at the end, and I’m just so confused.”

“Obviously, I just hope she’s happy. Now, enter Tayshia. Great, I wanted her to be the Bachelorette a while ago. I’m super pumped on this… but I’m still, what is happening? The Bachelor franchise is genius, and we’re all talking about it!” Bristowe exclaimed.

Colton Underwood, who pursued Adams on his season of “The Bachelor” also tweeted about the news writing “Congrats @TayshiaAdams — good luck and I hope you find yourself a better kisser.”

Fortunately, fans of Crawley and Adams were on the same page about the news and were beyond elated.

No doubt, Adams’ new role is the best news to come out of 2020!
