'Jane By Design' Recap: A New Girl Comes Between Jane & Billy

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 down Donovan Decker from the inside. Ruh-roh!

And just when I thought my emotions had been fully dragged through the ringer, Rita (Smith Cho) told Ben (David Clayton Rogers) she wanted to take a break! Apparently Ben came on a little too strong — something about flowers and candy and a giant gorilla — and Rita just needed some space.

Be. Still. My. Heart.

How do you feel about this week’s big developments? Do you like Billy with this new girl, or are you hoping their new relationship will push Jane towards Eli? And how bummed are you about Rita and Ben? Drop a comment with all of your emotions.
