CELEBRATE. The DivaGals heart Gina Rodriguez. So when we heard she was headlining P&G’s Orgullosa “Living Fabulosa” annual event at the Times Center in New York City last Wednesday┬áΓÇô part of its Nueva Latina campaign ΓÇô we had to be there! The Jane The Virgin star/Golden Globe winner shared that it was an honor to speak on her own Latina experience with others, and spilled that the secret of her success was working hard and never giving up! We sipped wine, nibbled on snacks and enjoyed ΓÇ£Chicas Night Out,ΓÇ¥ a beauty bar with styling consultations and gifts from Crest, Clairol, COVERGIRL, Olay and Pantene.

WATCH. Nat Geo’s Killing Jesus is a difficult watch. For the faithful who will compare it to scripture, it’s somewhat accurate, although a more anemic Jesus who comes across as a misunderstood rebel. There is a very strong focus on the last days of Jesus; those who conspired to kill him and the brutality of his death. What we loved, apart from the handsome Roman men in skirts including True Blood heartthrob Stephen Moyer? The diverse cast and a Jesus who looks “historically” correct, and the interesting insight into the conspirators’ inner thoughts and interactions. Where we cast our doubts… Killing Jesus writer Bill O’Reilly needs to rethink his “storytelling” if he hopes to win the heart of Christians. If it’s about Jesus then we want to see Jesus perform miracles, not look confused and uncertain. Jesus knew how the story was to end so we sincerely doubt that he was anything less than zealous, and more like an “alpha male” since he is, according to the Bible, the “Alpha and Omega.” We score this a “C.” Check it out, and then see something like the The Passion of the Christ which sticks to the script. Killing Jesus premieres Sunday, March 29 at 8 p.m. on Nat Geo.
