Liv & Maddie's Jillow Are 100% Meant To Be

Liv & Maddie's Jillow Are 100% Meant To Be

From the first moment Willow (Jessica Marie Garcia) got the crushies over Joey (Joey Bragg) on Liv and Maddie, we were hooked, and when they finally had their first date, we were throwing a party.

Joey spoke to JJJ about the couple’s flirty relationship throughout the series and is making us feel all the feels.

“The Willow/Joey storyline was always my favorite,” he says, “not just because I got to spend the week with Jessica Marie Garcia but because everyone has been in that awkward position before.”

Joey adds about the importance of their relationship and the storyline: “Whether you are the Joey or the Willow you know how hard it can be, so getting to see Joey and Willow get together in the end was a great message.”

“What was the message you ask? Never give up, never go down.”

With the show ending in just a few days, we don’t know if they’ll end up together during it, but Joey has hope for the couple.

“Willow and Joey are meant to be. They’ll find each other eventually,” he says. “They are still so young. Look out for a movie coming out in ten years putting the bow on top of Jillow.”

The Liv & Maddie series finale airs Friday, March 24.

The Final ‘Liv & Maddie’ Episodes Will Have You in Tears

The Final ‘Liv & Maddie’ Episodes Will Have You in Tears

We think we’re prepared for the final two episodes of Liv and Maddie…think, being the optimal word.

The final episodes of the Disney Channel series start next Friday and who are we kidding?

We’re NOT ready…and all because showrunners John D. Beck and Ron Hart said this:

“There are a lot of tear-jerking moments that are coming.”

However, it’s not all tear-jerking, they promised: “There’s a lot of fun as well, we always try to balance out the drama with the comedy but we deal with some pretty heavy stuff. I think everyone is going to be pretty satisfied with where the show lands after.”

John and Ron add, “At the end of the third season, we didn’t know if Liv and Maddie was going to continue, so we treated like that was the series finale.”

They added, “We went big with everything then — we made Liv a superhero, we destroyed the house…this time though, we knew for sure it was going to end. We went towards the emotion this time and we think it really is a satisfying, sentimental ending.”

One thing they both say about the finale though — Dove Cameron is spectacular in them.

Dove is exceptionally talented and she gave some of her best performances at the end of the series.”

====================================

The second part of the three-part series finale story, “Voice-A-Rooney”, will feature a Live Play experience powered by iPowow that will include live trivia and poll questions with real time results during the East and West Coast premiere telecasts.

The next day, you can watch the Liv and Maddie takeover weekend from Saturday, March 18 to Sunday, March 19, where almost every episode from the past four seasons will air on Disney Channel.

'Vampire Diaries' Characters Could Appear on 'The Originals' Post-Finale

'Vampire Diaries' Characters Could Appear on 'The Originals' Post-Finale

If you’re super bummed about The Vampire Diaries ending, we have a little good news to ease your pain.

We recently chatted with executive producer Julie Plec and it sounds like it’s entirely possible that some of our favorite Mystic Falls residents could head to the French Quarter on The Originals.

“Definitely,” Julie told us. “Matt Davis shows up in episode 8 of this season of The Originals, which starts airing next Friday. And then if we’re lucky enough to do season five, then I think the door is wide open for the appearances of anybody.”

We’ve already seen several of the characters visit New Orleans, but it would be really interesting to see them there after TVD has ended.

TELL JJJ: Who do you want to see show up on The Originals?

EXCLUSIVE: Meredith Foster Starts Her First GoFundMe to Support People With Special Needs

EXCLUSIVE: Meredith Foster Starts Her First GoFundMe to Support People With Special Needs

YouTuber Meredith Foster is amazing in a lot of ways, and her new GoFundMe campaign (along with Youtubers Rooster Teeth, Matt Santoro, and Teala Dunn) sponsoring Special Olympians is just another example.

Meredith will be going to Austria for the 2017 Special Olympics Winter Games March 14-25 to watch and support her athletes. We asked Meredith a few questions about the project.

JJJ: You mention in the video this is close to your heart. Can you please explain why?
Meredith: I am extremely inspired by the strength and dedication these incredible athletes have! They remind me and millions of people to do your best no matter what.

JJJ: Do you have any close friends or family members with disabilities?
Meredith: I know many people with disabilities that don’t let it deter from what they want to accomplish in life. Their positive outlook and ability to persevere in every aspect of life constantly inspires me.

JJJ: Has someone with disabilities impacted your life in a profound way?
Meredith: Yes, I’m inspired by the strength and confidence that they shine onto others. Their stories inspire me and impacts many other people around the world. They don’t let fear or self doubt get in the way of their dreams.

JJJ: Outside of the Olympics, what are you most excited to do and see and eat in Austria?
Meredith: I’m so excited to experience a different culture and way of life! I want to immerse myself in all that Austria has to offer. I would love to visit some of the historical buildings and see the beautiful architecture in Graz. I’ve heard their schnitzel and coffee are amazing so I’ll definitely be spending some time in their local restaurants!

'The Vampire Diaries' Finale Scoop: EP Julie Plec on Getting a Sense of Closure

'The Vampire Diaries' Finale Scoop: EP Julie Plec on Getting a Sense of Closure

It’s hard to believe that The Vampire Diaries will air its final episode tomorrow night after eight years on our television screens.

We’re definitely not ready to say goodbye to our favorite Mystic Falls residents, but we’re excited to see how the story ends.

We caught up with executive producer Julie Plec, who gave us some scoop about what we can expect in the final hour. Check it out below.

Don’t forget – The Vampire Diaries series finale airs Friday, March 10 @ 8PM on The CW.

JJJ: You and [fellow EP] Kevin Williamson had written an ending to the show years ago. Did you deviate from that at all? And if you didn’t, were you temped to?

Julie Plec: We did deviate from it, plot-wise because things change over eight years, not the least of which is Nina leaving after season six, which made certain things difficult – in terms of getting ourselves to that ending, what we had planned. But mostly I think, we landed in season two where we had the epiphany of an emotional response we wanted to evoke when we brought the series to a close, and we absolutely stayed true to that.

JJJ: At what point did you decide to kill someone off in the finale? Tell me about that decision.

JP: It just sort of felt that when you’re dealing with life and death things – in this case, will Mystic Falls burn? Will it survive? – someone is going to have to be murdered in the fight against the bad guy. So there were a lot of discussions about who that should be. And the choice of who it was, was made entirely out of character, bringing a character full circle to its proper conclusion.

Danielle Campbell Makes Her Dreams Come True at NYFW - Exclusive BTS Photos!

This may have been Danielle Campbell‘s first time at New York Fashion Week, but you’d never guess given her killer style choices.

The 21-year-old Originals actress made stunning statements at several shows, including Marc Jacobs, Vivienne Tam, ICB, Sherri Hill, Leanne Marshall, and Vivienne Hu.

“Fashion is an amazing tool for expressing your individuality,” Danielle told JJJ about her experience. “I’ve wanted to see a runway fashion show since I was a little girl, so sitting front row at Marc Jacob‘s preview was a dream come true! Being completely immersed in the entire fashion week experience – the colors, the edgy lines, the photos being taken and the vibe of the city was mesmerizing.”

When it comes to her go-to staples, Danielle loves the classics, but is open to trying new trends.

“I’m generally pretty comfort-classic when it comes to fashion,” she said. “I love a good pair of denim blue jeans and natural make up, but I’m definitely ready to explore!”

Jacob Sartorius Tells JJJ What's He's Looking For in a Girlfriend (Exclusive)

Good news, ladies – Jacob Sartorius is, in fact, single.

JJJ recently sat down with the 14-year-old “Last Text” singer to talk about which qualities he finds attractive.

“I’m single, but I’m looking for a girlfriend. I look for somebody that I can just have fun with,” Jacob told us. “I’d rather have fun, go to SkyZone, go to a trampoline park. I just want to have a good time.”

“I feel like a lot of people nowadays are like ‘This is my girlfriend’ and try to show her off. If I ever got a girlfriend…I would want it to be like my best friend,” Jacob said. “I don’t think it should be about anything else other than they have a personality that you enjoy. That’s a big thing for me.”

He added, “You can just be who you are. I feel like society makes people live up to some standard…I’m trying to mess that up and completely erase that from people’s minds.”
