Review by Dana Jung
Alexis Fish (a revelatory Gina Rodriguez) is a twenty-something widow who is slowly eroding away in Los Angeles; her husband left her in debt, she’s working menial jobs like dressing up as a giant panda for a restaurant, and she is taking medication to help her with feelings of depression, anxiety, anger, you name it. She misses her family in New York, especially her sister Kayla (the wonderful Ana Ortiz) and her father (Tibor Feldman). However, even the distance from East coast to West doesn’t seem to be enough to nullify the contentious relationship she has with her mother (Priscilla Lopez). The mother/daughter conflict is one of the main themes that propels the funny and moving new film Sleeping With The Fishes.
When a family funeral brings Alexis back to New York, things at first seem to go from bad to worse. As her freespirited sister explains, »

The 29thAnnual Artios Awards was held Nov. 18 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. A joint ceremony was also held in New York. The event was hosted by Aisha Tyler, who stepped up at the last minute when announced host Nicole Sullivan was unable to attend. Presenters included Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael B. Jordan, Jonathan Groff, Liam James, Ana Ortiz, and Constance Zimmer. Marg Helgenberger and Kerry Washington presented the Career Achievement and Hoyt Bowers Awards. Casting Society of America President Richard Hicks highlighted some of the Csa’s accomplishments in the last year, most notably the success of the documentary, “Casting By.” The documentary filmmakers were given a special award during the evening’s ceremony. For the first time a casting associate was also honored. In Los Angeles, Charley Medigovich was honored with the Associate Spotlight Award. Throughout the evening, there were several mentions of the notoriously camera-shy nature of casting directors. »
Looks like Victoria and Emily have even more trouble on their hands!
An ocean of secrets was revealed on the Nov. 17 episode of Revenge. Jack (Nick Wechsler) made a heartfelt confession to Emily (Emily VanCamp), Charlotte (Christa B. Allen) got herself into some deep trouble — and someone returned from the dead!
It’s A Love Shack, Baby
The episode opened with a flashback to the summer of 2010, when Daniel (Joshua Bowman) and Sarah (Annabelle Stephenson) were very hot and heavy. Then, back in present day, we pretty much got the same thing. Daniel may be getting married to Emily, but he only has eyes for Sarah.
He even showed up to the farmer’s market looking super sexy to flirt with her. “I haven’t been able to get you out of my head since the Fourth of July,” he said. Sarah tried to play hard to get, but she »

Previously, On Reven8e.
With Patrick (hopefully temporarily) gone, this week was very much a filler episode, but it did give Nolan a great opportunity for his his own takedown, and he made the most of it
Here are five highlights:
Ana Ortiz Makes Everything Better
The Graysons need an image overhaul, so they hire the improbably named PR maven Bizzy Preston (who i’m pretty sure was an R&B singer in the 70′s) to help rehab the family name.
Played appropriately stridently by the faboo Ana, Bizzy is good at her job, and will do anything to help her clients … something Nolan is all too aware of.
“Back in the day, I was dating this guy. It was casual, fun. Then I met his sister, up and coming pop star Sage. And she was more casual, more fun. And as it turns out, married. The press got a »
Plus, Emily officially becomes a sidekick to Nolan’s revenge agenda!
A New ‘Bizzy’ Bee
Conrad (Henry Czerny) needed to revamp the Grayson image and get himself back in the good graces of America, so he hired a sassy new PR lady to help. Bizzy Preston (Ana Ortiz) was locked, loaded and ready to fix the Grayson family. She wanted to throw a lavish 4th of July party and have Victoria and Emily do press together.
Spending time with Victoria didn’t suit Emily at all and she headed to Nolan’s (Gabriel Mann) to air her complaints about Bizzy’s plan. In a surprising twist, Nolan already knew Bizzy, and they didn’t exactly have the best relationship.
Apparently, Bizzy outed »

In this week’s Revenge, while Conrad’s new publicist, Bizzy Preston (Devious Maids’ Ana Ortiz), sets about trying to mend the rift between Emily and Victoria – good luck with that, honey! – Nolan gets a rare chance to pull off a takedown of his own. But why does he have it in for the Hamptons’ Edina Monsoon? And how does he manage to get even without donning a single neckerchief? Read on. I’ll explain.
Nol’S Core | Early on in “Resurgence,” Nolan reveals to Emily that, to protect one of her clients ages ago, Bizzy outed him to the »

Cherry was concerned that the series, a Beverly Hills "upstairs, downstairs" tale, might be too similar to Julian Fellowes' creation. He need not have worried, given that the opening three minutes of the drama feature accusations of rape and adultery, and a murder, with a body found floating the wrong way up in a swimming pool.
Downton Abbey – despite recent controversy – it is not: Devious Maids unfolds in a universe little different from that of Desperate Housewives. Viewers are invited, in its creator's words, to enjoy "a lovely trip through Marc Cherry land".

The first feature from writer/director Nicole Gomez Fisher “Sleeping with the Fishes’, staring Gina Rodriguez, is a Latino comedy which captures one girl’s journey of self-discovery and the dynamics of her zany family. With it’s fair share of “ay dios mio” and “oy vey” moments, the film comes to life with colorful characters and one liners that can only be found in a Latino Jewish home in Brooklyn.
Gina how has life changed since ‘Filly Brown’ came out?
Gina Rodriguez: It’s interesting because the struggle doesn’t end you just kind of fight a different fight and you have to keep trying. You’re only as good as you’re next job and hopefully I make my family and my friends proud.
Gina when it comes to taking on new projects do you try to find something different?
Gina Rodriguez: Well first I look for an amazing script. »

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out the Graysons could use some good PR work. I’ve never met them personally – because Revenge is just a television show, which is something I struggle with on a daily basis – but just looking at them I feel like they’re a giant wreck. And I mean wreck as in they are almost as bad as the Bluth’s, who were in so much trouble no amount of PR work could have saved their image. What the Bluth’s had going for them was how unbelievably funny their actions were, while the Graysons just leave disaster and suffering in their wake since, you know, this is basically a soap opera.

Although she said only last week, "I've been married twice, so that's been there, done that," Eva Longoria is by no means completely ruling out putting on a wedding dress for a third time. "I didn't say I would never get married again," the 38-year-old, addressing the comments she made to Access Hollywood, told People at Saturday's Eva Longoria Foundation Dinner in Hollywood. "There's nobody in the works now," she clarified. "So, it's not really on my mind. It was very misconstrued." In the same interview last week, Longoria touched upon prospective motherhood: "I don't think if I'm 50 and single »

When ABC’s Revenge premiered in 2011, it became a must-watch, a deliciously overwrought throwback to the primetime soaps of yesteryear. When Season One ended with steely bitch Victoria presumably blown to bits from an airplane bomb, we waited with high expectations for Season Two to begin and Amanda/Emily’s campaign of vengeance to resume.
Unfortunately, Season Two started out muddled, and by the end it had become increasingly convoluted, confusing, and just plain ridiculous (and not fun ridiculous like Season One, but cartoonish ridiculous). Ratings dropped, reviews were merciless and we stopped recapping the show 2/3 of the way through the season … and few people noticed.
So it was with trepidation that I sat down to watch the Season Three Premiere. Would the show be able to rebound? Would it get back to what made us fall in love with it in the first place? Well, the jury’s still out, »
The first episode of Revenge‘s third season gets rid of everything unpleasant about the last go-around (adios, Carrion!), introduces some intriguing new folks (bonjour, Margaux and hellllllo Patrick) and reminds us why we rooted for Emily Thorne in the first place. (That last one comes via a huge assist from Nolan; if Revenge were a Nicholas Sparks novel, Mr. Ross, you would be its true north. But then you’d also probably contract a fatal disease or die in a horrific accident, which would seriously bum me out.)
But the more things change, the more they still »

Latina Magazine first reported the casting news. Ortiz will play a character named Bizzy Preston, a confident and fearless public relations whiz. According to TVGuide.com she is brought onto the show when Conrad Grayson (Henry Czerny) needs to do damage control.
What is the damage control for specifically? Considering that we're talking about the Graysons, it could be anything.
The actress currently plays Marisol Duarte on "Devious Maids" and is otherwise best known for playing Hilda on "Ugly Betty." Other recurring roles include assistant district attorney Holly Raines on "Boston Legal" and Lydia on "Hung."
There is no date announced for Ortiz's appearance. "Revenge" Season 3 premieres Sunday, Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
