    I love love love me some Eva Longoria and I’m always glad to see her get work but her guest stint on Jane the Virgin is a surprise, albeit a welcome one. I’m shocked because Gina was so hardcore against Devious Maids @ the start & spoke so ill about it.

  2. Naomi says:

    Based off of Gina’s Snapchat, I was under the assumption that Eva was directing the current episode they’re filming.

    Have to admit, I’m excited to see the Royals premiere date. It is the guiltiest of my guilty pleasures.

    The series finale of Dexter was the worst in recent memory.
