Congratulations! The Campaign actress Kate Lang Johnson wed her musician beau Justin Miner (of the band Miner), her rep confirms exclusively to People. The nuptials come on the heels of two other stars from the same film getting married. Last month, Katherine Lanassa wed actor Grant Show, and a week earlier, the movie's star Zach Galifianakis celebrated his own nuptials. Johnson and Miner, who met while attending University of Southern California, wed on Aug. 26 in Palos Verdes, Calif., at La Venta Inn. The bride, 28, chose an Enzoani ivory lace mermaid dress. For a personal touch, she added a veil, which »

What do You want to see when 'Jane By Design' (hopefully) returns to ABC Family for its second season? It's been seven whole days since Jane By Design aired its summer finale cliffhanger, and although the future of the series — much like Jane's (Erica Dasher) future at Donovan Decker — remains unconfirmed, I'm hearing that a second season is likely. So why not start compiling a wish list of all the things I'd like to see in season two? 1. An available, age-appropriate guy for Jane: I think we can all agree Jane has terrible luck with guys. Between unavailable-best-friend Billy (Nick Roux) and older-co-worker Eli (Bryan Dechart), Jane's love life was pretty much lose-lose at the end of season one. She just needs to find a nice guy her own age so she can finally get her groove back! Perhaps round two with Nick (Matt Atkinson »

Who will Billy choose? Who's coming back? And who will learn Jane's secret? HollywoodLife.com got all the scoop from creator April Blair! The tables officially turn on the July 31 summer finale of Jane By Design, with Billy (Nick Roux) now having to choose between girlfriend Zoe (Mariah Buzolin) and best-friend Jane (Erica Dasher). But creator April Blair tells HollywoodLife.com that Billy's big decision is just one of many major moments we can anticipate, along with Jane's two worlds colliding to the point where "everything is put in jeopardy." Here's what I learned: 1. Are Eli & Jane officially over? Well, it depends on how you look at it. Yes, Eli (Bryan Dechart) slept with India (India de Beaufort) last week, but April suggests we take a step back and examine both sides of the situation. "Jane and Eli have only been on one date," she explains. "One date and one kiss. »

Someone liked it — and definitely wants to put a ring on it. As if Jane's life wasn't complicated enough! Jane's (Erica Dasher) fairy tale life almost came crashing down around her — once again — on the July 10 episode of Jane By Design when her mom (Teri Hatcher) decided to whip up an online dating profile for Gray (Andie MacDowell), following the news that Beau has found himself a much younger fiancée. And, of course, India (India de Beaufort) was somehow able to manipulate Kate's kind gesture in yet another attempt to oust Gray from the company. Sneaky little India set up a fake date for Gray, as well as a surprise meeting with one of Donovan Decker's biggest competitors. The plan was simple: Gray would show up for her date, bump into the competitor, India would snap a picture, and everyone would think Gray was jumping ship. But there was one »

Erica Dasher live-tweeted the 'crisis' before de-stressing the London way: with a cup of tea! Jane By Design stars Erica Dasher and Rowly Dennis were faced with an emergency — and not one of the fashion variety — when a fire forced them to evacuate London's Corinthia Hotel on June 27. "Hotel completely evacuated at 6am," Erica tweeted. "@RowlyDennis acts as hero." But it wasn't long before Jane and Rowly — dressed to the nines in hotel couture — were relaxing over tea, and wishing co-star India de Beaufort a happy birthday. "We cheers to you, little bird!!! :)" Erica tweeted, along with the above photo. Erica and Rowly are currently in London to finish filming Jane By Design's first season — of many, I hope. Rihanna was also reportedly in the hotel at the time of the evacuation. — Andy Swift Follow @AndySwift »

Yes, Jane's long-lost mom is finally back — direct from Wisteria Lane! This may not have been Jane's (Erica Dasher) best birthday ever, but it was definitely the most surprising. Not only did she learn the truth about the Donovan Decker mole on the June 19 episode of Jane By Design, but she also discovered intense new feelings for a certain co-worker. Oh, and did I mention her mom (Teri Hatcher) came back to surprise her? Happy birthday, indeed. Eli (Bryan Dechart) was tasked with distracting Jane while preparations for her office surprise party were underway, but it didn't take long for the line between business and pleasure to blur. I know we're supposed to want Jane to end up with Billy (Nick Roux), but there's no way you can deny the chemistry between Jane and Eli — and apparently neither can Eli. He asked her out on a real date »

Plus, another fan-favorite couple takes a serious hit! Worst Valentine's Day ever. Jane (Erica Dasher) got a taste of fame on the June 12 episode of Jane By Design when she was photographed alongside Donovan Decker's latest high-profile client, but her new celeb status caused major problems for her friendship with Billy (Nick Roux). And while Billy was crushed at first, his budding relationship with new-girl Zoe (Mariah Buzolin) provided just the distraction he needed. Meanwhile, India (India de Beaufort) and Gray (Andie MacDowell) continued to draw their battle lines this week — and they each came prepared with a secret weapon. Gray tried to use India's relationship with Jeremy (Rowly Dennis) to manipulate her, while India used Gray's jealousy of Eli (Bryan Dechart) to manipulate him. India clearly came out the victor of this particular round, as she threatened to expose Jeremy as the mole if he didn't help her take »

Plus, a handsome new face turns Jane's world upside down. God, I've missed this show! Two months have passed since Billy (Nick Roux) all-but-confessed his love to Jane (Erica Dasher), and when Jane By Design returned June 5, viewers basically found themselves in an alternate universe. Ben (David Clayton Rogers) was helping Jane keep her big secret, Nick (Matthew Atkinson) was in a full-on relationship with Lulu (Meagan Tandy), and India (India de Beaufort) was... well... I'll get to her later. The episode began with Jane and Billy's highly anticipated reunion — he'd been locked away in a juvenile detention camp, but thankfully, his gravity defying hair didn't suffer for it — and he and Jane finally had "the talk." Well, sort of. Billy pretty much avoided the subject until the final moments of the episode, when he totally lied and said Jane was his best friend and he didn't want that to change. »

The stars were out on Wednesday night to celebrate Belvedere Vodka's Nylon Summer Music Issue Celebration, with host Shirley Manson and special performance by Garbage. Luckily, I (TheInsider.com's very own Meg Swertlow!) also got an invite to the music-tastic soiree -- and I didn't even have to give up a kidney or my first born. Here are some of the VIP party deets!
After getting locked in the stairwell of parking lot – I feared my friend Kate and I would miss seeing my high school icon perform. But after a lot of yelling, a lot of scrambling up and down several flights of stairs in high heels, we got there just in time to see the amazing Shirley Manson take to the stage and prove once again she ain’t no stupid girl. While she the saucy Scottish singer and her band may have not come out with a record for seven years, the electrifying »
ABC Family has another hit on its hands, though it may be diving further and further toward ABC Family (Women), and Jane by Design has opted for the ultra-quick DVD release. Hitting just two weeks after the season finale, the DVD doesn’t offer bonus features, but gives you the chance to jump into the show, in case you didn’t get on board until after everyone was talking about it.
The show, though certainly mainly geared toward a certain age demographic, delivers solid writing, and layered characters. Like many of the shows currently airing on ABC Family, Jane by Design rises above the expectations it likely creates on paper.
16 year-old Jane thinks she’s applying to be an unpaid intern for a fashion powerhouse, but is mistakenly interviewed to be an executive assistant to one of the biggest names in the game, and at an impressive salary to boot. »

It's been a memorable first season for Jane Quimby -- full of high drama, high school and high heels. Jane By Design is a light-hearted drama about Jane (Erica Dasher), a teenager who lands a job at Donovan Decker, a hip fashion house, when they mistake her for an adult. Jane soon finds herself juggling life both as a regular high school student and as an assistant to a high powered executive in the cutthroat world of fashion... all while trying to keep her true identity a secret.
Jane By Design also features Nick Roux (Lemonade Mouth) as Billy Nutter, Rowly Dennis (Desperate Housewives) as Jeremy Jones, India de Beaufort (One Tree Hill) as India Jourdain, Meagan Tandy (10 Things I Hate About You) as Lulu Pope, Matthew Atkinson (CSI) as Nick Fadden. Andie MacDowell (Four Weddings and a Funeral) also stars as Gray Chandler Murray -- Jane's »
At least, he tries to! What did you think of the episode's epic final moment? The spring finale of Jane By Design was a night of ups and downs for our boy Billy (Nick Roux). It began with him getting bailed out of jail and sentenced to several months at a youth detention facility, but ended with the jaw-dropping confession we've waited 10 long weeks to hear. So are he and Jane (Erica Dasher) going to live happily ever after? Yeah, right. Like it would ever be that easy. Billy's confession -- curiously inspired by his hot-yet-troubled brother Tommy -- was interrupted by Jane's hot-yet-misguided co-worker Jeremy (Rowly Dennis), who was just about tell Jane the same thing before he himself was interrupted by a text message from Gray's (Andie MacDowell) hot-yet-evil ex-husband Beau. Oh, did I mention that Jeremy has been leaking Donovan Decker's designs to Beau this whole time? »

The spring finale of ABC Family's Jane By Design, titled "The End of the Line", isn't quite the end of the line for the show, according to Deadline. The freshman drama has been picked up for eight additional episodes, which will premiere sometime this summer. There's no word on an exact date or what the show will be airing alongside, however.
In the finale, the pressure has been ratcheted up on Jane now that Ben has gotten a hint that there's more to this "internship" than he originally thought. Plus, it's Fashion Week and she has more on her plate than ever, considering Grey's growing confidence in her young prodigy. Will this be the moment that her two lives finally become aware of one another? Or can Jane somehow, some way keep her little secret from those closest to her? »

A breakup, a slip-up and a hangover? Needless to say, this was not Jane's best week. Jane (Erica Dasher) had a good run keeping up her double life, but we all knew her big secret had to come out eventually -- and that's exactly what happened on the Feb. 28 episode of Jane By Design when Ben (David Clayton Rogers) stumbled on some old pictures of Jane on her recent trip to Paris. But will he be cool with everything, or has our little fashionista reached the end of her runway? We'll have to wait until next week's big finale to find that out, so let's just focus on this week's shenanigans for now. Jane tagged along with India (India de Beaufort) on a little business trip to business trip to Beverly Hills -- and by "tagged along" I mean "spied for Gray" -- and discovered she was secretly meeting with Gray's (Andie MacDowell) husband! »

Everyone got what they deserved on the Feb. 21 episode of 'Jane By Design,' and I'm now a proud member of Team Jane. My Jane By Design recaps typically include a list of all the ways that Jane (Erica Dasher) ruined the lives of her friends and family on any given week -- but believe it or not, the Feb. 21 episode actually found our plucky little fashionista using her powers for good. Not only did she bring Nick (Matthew Atkinson) and Billy (Nick Roux) closer together, but she also saved Jeremy's (Rowly Dennis) job! Oh, and did I mention she took down India (India de Beaufort) in the process? When a snooty socialite (Autumn Reeser) demanded that Donovan Decker redesign her wedding dress in 24 hours, Jeremy lost his mind -- and nearly lost his job along with it. But thanks to Jane's brilliant new design idea, the »
