The soft-spoken, kind-hearted star of the CW’s All American fearlessly conquers her dreams and breaks ground for new possibilities. We recently caught up with the Chicago native who candidly opened up about crashing an audition, booking All American and her future goals. In her early 20s, Westbrook took a chance on herself.

Grab Your Tissues and Get Ready for the Final Season of “Jane the Virgin”

This month, the fifth and final season of The CW’s Jane the Virgin begins on Wednesday, March 27. To many, the end of the show means the loss of an extended family. The series has always revolved around the relationships between the Villanueva women — Jane (Gina Rodriguez), her mother Xiomara (Andrea Navedo) and grandmother Alba (Ivonne Coll). But, of course, the show is a telenovela, also filled with powerful moments, sweet romance and shocking cliffhangers. When we last left Jane, she had been able to put her husband Michael’s (Brett Dier) Season 3 death behind her and was pursuing […]

All American RECAP Episode 15: ‘Best Kept Secret’

In this week’s All American episode, “Best Kept Secret,” the uncertainty about Cory’s presence has caused a ripple effect on everyone’s life. Since Cory’s return home, everyone’s world has turned more dramatically. Spencer keeps finding himself at the expense of things outside of his control. At the end of last week’s episode, Spencer presented three possible secrets that influenced Cory’s reason to return; 1) To seek revenge for Grace’s affair with Baker, 2) Spencer’s rise to football fame, or 3) He actually wanted a relationship with his sons. Uncertainty Each reason equally played a role in this episode. In my […]
