'Jane By Design' Recap: Jane Finally Fails & Suffers Dearly

She may be able to sew an entire outfit before school, but when it comes to relationships, Jane’s pretty much hopeless.

After two straight weeks of lucking out and impressing Gray (Andie MacDowell), we finally saw Jane (Erica Dasher) fail on the Jan. 17 episode of Jane By Design. I don’t mean to sound too thrilled with her tragic week, but honestly, I was starting to wonder if the girl was even human. At least we know she’s capable of screwing up.

With Gray out of town for the weekend, Jane was given a laundry list of tasks to accomplish, one of which being to break things off with Gray’s model boy-toy Brad (Hartley Sawyer). But despite visiting him at home — and enjoying an extra-long shirtless hug — he wouldn’t take no for answer, so Jane was forced to return her prized Birkin bag. I’d feel bad for her, but that seems like the ultimate white girl problem. So I won’t.

And when Erica told HollywoodLife.com that Gray has a “bevy” of men in her life, she wasn’t kidding! Brad aside, Gray also has a soon-to-be-ex-husband Beau (Oded Fehr), who happens to be her rival in the industry. Mixing business with pleasure, are we Gray? I guess everyone likes to do that on this show.

Billy (Nick Roux), meanwhile, had his own drama to deal with — and it went by the name of Lulu (Meagan Tandy). After a whole lot of freaking out, she finally decided she was ready to tell everyone about their relationship. Of course, that also means Billy will have to tell Jane he’s hooking up with her arch nemesis.

Suddenly losing that Birkin bag doesn’t seem like the biggest crisis in Jane’s life…

Who played the handsome guy Lulu’s friend said would be gay in a few years? I don’t remember exactly how the scene yet, but I can’t find the name anywhere. P:
