Rebecca On Ellen - September 29, 2009
Although Rebecca had a recurring role on ABC's Ugly Betty she left to have her adorable little girls. For the Fall 2009 TV season she stars as witch Roxie Torcoletti on ABC's Eastwick which is an adaptation of the John Updike novel The Witches of Eastwick and its 1987 film which starred Cher and Jack Nicholson.
Rebecca has been out helping to promote the TV show to ensure it's future and recently popped up on Ellen to talk about her latest role.
The beautiful blonde appeared on Ellen with her hair pulled tightly offer her face into a crown level ponytail which was bone straight but flirty and boncy.
Ellen told Rebecca "you look great and you've had babies, and you don't look like you've had babies." Rebecca smiled "well I had babies nine months ago, two little girls, Dolly and Charlie and they're so fun." She continued "they're so fun, they're starting to get teeth, they're starting to talk, Charlie's starting to say Momma and Babba."
Rebecca said "they're getting so cute and I had this fantasy when I had two little girls that they were just going to be wearing matching outfits and have little bows in their hair. She paused, these girls wrestle and pull whatever I put in their hair out and it goes directly into their mouth, whatever babies are not supposed to do, they do."
She also said "they play bumper cars all day long" in their little baby walkers.
Dolly Parton's Tribute To Rebecca & Her Daughters
When talking about naming one of her daughter's Dolly, she said "Dolly was named after Dolly Parton. I'm a lifelong fan of Dolly Parton's...she's fantastic. I have incredible emotional ties to her music. My mom always played her music when I was a kid. So my mom and my sister and I have always adored her."
Dolly said "And I had an opportunity to meet her when I was six months pregnant and I saw her perform at Dollywood and right before her show I sat with her and she asked me what I was thinking of naming my daughters and I said 'I'm thinking about Dolly for one' of them."
Rebecca told Ellen "I was a little embarrassed to say it. And she (Dolly) said 'I would be so honored, Dolly's the name I was given, it's not short for anything. I didn't have children of my own and I would be so honored, please do that, please do that'.
Rebecca said she was like 'oh my god' and then Dolly "at the show dedicated (the song) Little Sparrow to 'her new friend Rebecca and her little girls.'
The actress told Ellen "I was a puddle, like a puddle. Like a puddle. And the whole way back to the airport, which was in Knoxville, Tennessee which was about an hour and a half drive I was trying to tell my husband over the phone what had just happened, but I couldn't, I was gasping for air."
She continued "so he could tell I was incredibly emotionally and he said at the end 'you want to name one of our girls Dolly don't you?' He said 'done, fine, we can do it'. Rebecca said she would "never forget" the dedication to her little girls from Dolly.
Rebecca said her husband Jerry "started studying for the LSATs" (which are required to get into law school) when she was pregnant. The couple knew Rebecca would be going back to work acting and Jerry would be taking care of the girls for a little while.
Rebecca told Ellen "Jerry can't just sit around and be an "idle person" and "he's always got to be occupied with something."
Rebecca said "he was so nervous the morning I was giving birth, he was literally in the hospital room with his surgical mask just anxious beyond belief his nose buried in his LSAT books, and he was actually studying, I didn't believe it, but he was."
Now that the babies are nine months Jerry is going to school at night and takes care of the babies during the day.
When talking about The Witches of Eastwick Rebecca told Ellen "I'm a witch, all three of us are witches." She said she and the other two witches don't know yet they're witches because its early on in the series and "we're just starting to discover our power and we're not sure how we fell about them yet."
Ellen asked "do you believe there are witches?" Rebecca said "I believe that..yes and no...I believe in putting something out there in The Universe and asking for it to come back. There's a certain amount of power in putting something out there. It's like the Secret."
When the beauty appeared on The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien she said about the show....
"We're having a fantastic time, the show's great. The material is so fun and challenging, I can't wait to get to work every day," she told The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien. Rebecca also said "playing a witch is a fantasy for a girl like playing a superhero is a fantasy for a guy. Your powers are limitless. I dressed up as a witch for Halloween probably three times when I was a kid. It's fun."
Rebecca's Romijn's Hair Texture, Face Shape & Styling Options
Although Rebecca the actress often wears her hair in a dizzying array of textures and styles ranging from straight to ringley infused wavy, up to down and different lengths, Roxie Torcoletti wears her hair more tousled.

Roxie alternates her hairstyles with a variety of loose, sassy natural texturized looks ranging from soft, barely there waves, to a more polished half up/half down style with more defined curves.

She also piles her ringlet waves up in a loose messy twist when she's doing her sculpting.
Both Rebecca and Roxie are blondes with gorgeous multi-layered highlights and lowlights interwoven throughout the dark golden blonde base.
Although it's expected for California girl Rebecca to rock blonde tresses, her Roxie character in Eastwick is considered the town vixen, a widow whose husband died under mysterious circumstances.
Ultimately Rebecca's hair as Roxie is perfect for her role as the emerging witch in a small enchanted/haunted town.
Steal Rebecca's Romijn's Hairstyle
Follow the steps listed below to recreate Rebecca's basic long lush ringlet wave infused hairstyle:
1. Start by selecting a shampoo and conditioner with a color safe formula like the Phyto Colored Hair System, to preserve any blonde highlights or lowlight hues.
If your hair is chemically treated or colored like Rebecca's hair, onsider using a color appropriate shampoo like Rene Furterer Okara Repairing Shampoo or select a shampoo that works with your current texture, type and condition of hair. Eliminate dry strands with J.F. Lazartigue Micro Pearl Shampoo for Dry hair.
2 Apply a rinse out conditioner that works for your hair's normal texture, type and condition. Consider trying a color co-ordinated mask such as Okara Restructuring and Protective Radiance Mask to intensify your existing color. Avoid using the conditioner on super fine hair or near the roots.
3. Finish with a cool/cold rinse to close the cuticle and help add natural shine.
4. Towel blot (never rub or rough dry) to remove excess water.5. Coat damp strands with your favorite customized styling product cocktail containing styling tools such as a defrisant, volume building mousse, gel or other styling products that work best with your hair texture and type.
Detangle working slowly from the ends to the roots. Create desired part. Rebecca tends to wear either a center or off-center part.
6. Blow dry using a large round boar's bristle brush (shown to the side - Conair Round Brush) for strong, lasting support. Direct the air flow down from the roots towards the end to build in shine and smooth strands.
7. Use fingers to lightly pick and lift near the roots for desired volume and lift while using a round brush to lightly roll the ends of the hair under.
8. When hair is 100% dry use a tail comb or brush to create the desired part.
Separate hair into individual 2" sections and set on medium sized hot rollers, or curl with a medium sized curling iron to add movement to the strands.
Curling Without Hot Rollers
If curling with a curling iron, after working with each section, roll the newly formed curl with your fingers up towards your scalp and pin into place to allow the curl to cool completely. Work around the entire head until all sections have been curled and pinned to the scalp. Spritz lightly with a soft hold hairspray.
Curling With Hot Rollers
If curling with hot rollers, let the curlers completely cool before removing. Once all the rollers have been released, let new curls dangle free before styling. Spritz lightly with a soft hold hairspray.
9. Use your fingers and/or a boar's head brush to lightly break up the curls and arrange into a soft finished halo of bouncy waves that terminate into a slight curl at the tips.
Apply a small drop of shine serum to the tips of your fingers and massage into the palms of your hands. Lightly brush your serum infused palms over the top of the finished hairstyle.
If you prefer, use a shine spray product and spray into the palms of your hands and then glide over finished style. Another option is to finish the look with a long lasting hairspray for a silky shine effect.
Rebecca Romijn is fabulous in her role as Roxie on ABC's The Witches Of Eastwick. In fact, the entire cast is amazing but she ties it all together as the sassy, sexy blonde widow with a hot younger boyfriend.
Besides her role on Witches Rebecca continues to maintain her leading lady status in Hollywood with roles in a number of prominent film and television projects. In addition to her starring role as Roxie -- a free spirited artist who is discovering her inner-witch -- she recently wrapped production on the feature film “The Love Child,” opposite Donald Sutherland and Sarah Roemer.
