Singer Adele to guest star on Betty

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

16528999451press4152009100547amSinger Adele will be making an appearance as herself on Ugly Betty sometime in May. The episode entitled ‘The Stars’ will have Matt and Betty doing a photo shoot for YETI that turns into an impromptu wedding.

Adele won two Grammys in February for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her song “Chasing Pavements.”

Who’s getting married? There’s speculation that it could be Daniel and Molly. It also could be Ignacio and Elena. Or they could really throw us by introducing a new romance and that could be the wedding. Just a few more weeks until Betty returns and then the wait will be over.

Lindsey talks about break up

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

lohan Lindsay Lohan - who has been a guest on Ugly Betty as Kimmie, Betty’s rival from high school - is taking to US Weekly about her breakup with her girlfriend Samantha Ronson.

Ronson broke it off with Lohan last Friday. The couple had been together for two years. It’s Lindsay’s relationship with Samantha that many have speculated for her getting her life on track.

The whole article in the US Weekly but you can read more at Yahoo news.

Snowy Day on iTunes

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

Wow. Tonight’s episode entitled ‘Crushed’ was something else. It was very emotional and moving at times.

Full recap tomorrow but Jessie does write a song for Betty. The song ‘Snowy Day’ was actually written by the actor who plays Jessie, Val Emmich. Val is a musician and his band is featured in tonight’s episode.

As the song was playing, I was thinking how great it would be to buy it. So it’s good news that it’s available through iTunes. Val has other songs available and his music has been featured before in ‘Betty.’ Earlier this year, his rendition of Tom Petty’s ‘American Girl’ could be heard.

Anyway, it was a great song for a great episode. My full recap tomorrow.

She quickly realizes that Mode’s size zero emaciated models are sending the wrong message and campaigns for Daniel to use “real” models for fashion week.

Wilhelmina continues to do what she loves best, trying to worm her way into the Meade family dynasty by any means necessary. Now for some news to make all the tweens and teens scream. Guest stars for this episode are rapper Bow Wow and former B2K singer and R&B sensation Omarion. The two will be performing on the show.

Marc’s Boyfriend Gets Robbed!

Wednesday, December 12th, 2007

David Blue

Even TV stars sometimes have to do deal with the hard knocks of real life. David Blue who plays Cliff the adorable average guy that Marc(Micheal Urie) falls in love with on Ugly Betty was robbed over the weekend as he left a Hollywood Party.

David and an unidentified female friend were held up at gunpoint after leaving a Season 2 Wrap Party for Ugly Betty. David showed he was just as adorable in real life as he is on TV when he stated on his Myspace blog that he was glad it was him rather than one of his richer costars.

David also revealed that the show is not done filming. The wrap party was in celebration of the holiday season. Ugly Betty finished working on the completed scripts with no writers on set and the strike still on the show has completed all it can do.


KISS Rocks Ugly Betty

Wednesday, December 5th, 2007

Gene Simmons gives Betty a KISS!

Is anyone else’s head spinning over all the Ugly Betty guest stars this Season? Not just ones who have been confirmed to guest star but all of those who also make it to the rumor mill? Now here is one guest star that I truly don’t have an opinion on good or bad, Gene Simmons singer of rock group KISS. This is truly one guest star I didn’t expect to see. At first I didn’t think he could fit into a show all about fashion.

Then I remembered the sex and fighting so this could work. TV Squad is speculating that he could be playing Amanda’s real daddy which would actually make perfect sense. I could definitely see him and Fey Summers getting it on at Studio 54 and now the thought of him with a Tweety Bird tattoo on his butt is ingrained in my head…

Check out these other “rocking males” on (and two of my favorites) Ne-Yo and Robin Thicke.

One Guest Star to Another

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

Penelope Cruz comes to the set

Looks like Lindsay won’t get to go Ugly. Reportedly her PR firm nixed the deal. Apparently they didn’t think it would be good for her career. On Ugly Betty Lindsey would have been portraying a fast food worker that Betty befriends. In real life Lindsay has been involved in drug scandals and several car wrecks and let’s not forget the multiple rehabs.

An appearance on a top rated TV show which would involve her actually doing some acting is a bad career move? Her last few movies have all been blunders a guest starring role on a TV show that is already a hit would have boosted her profile and allow some of her previous fans to take her seriously again. Looks like Lindsay needs some new representation because she couldn’t have wished for a better chance at redemption than guest starring on Ugly Betty. The show has the Midas touch!

But Ugly Betty has already rebounded with a much bigger guest star. Salma Hayek’s best gal pal Penelope Cruz is is coming to the show! Salma has been looking for a role for her friend for a while and apparently they have finally found the right one. The Academy Award nominated Cruz has starred with Tom Cruise in Vanilla Sky and the oh-so-sexy Matthew Broderick in Sahara. Penelope’s versatility should fit right into the crazy world of Ugly Betty.

Bad News? Writers on Strike & Lo Guest Star

Friday, November 16th, 2007

Will Linsday Lohan get Ugly?

As of last week Silvio Horta and Marco Pennette Ugly Betty writers are among the who’s who list of writers that have signed a pledge in support of the Writers Guild of America strike. According to the pledge they will do no writing whatsoever while the strike continues and neither will their writing staff be asked too. Show star America Ferrera has also been spotted joining the picket line outside the Hollywood TV Studios. In fact most of the main cast has shown their support in some way.

However Ashley Jensen reported that they only have enough episodes till sometime in December! Ashley made this comment while in the UK at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Of The Year Awards in London. She was named Ultimate Woman on TV. Other honorees included Angelina Jolie for Ultimate Woman Who Made Us Care for humanitarian efforts, Cameron Diaz was honored for Ultimate Lady Of Film and singer Rihanna won the honor for Ultimate Mistress of Music.


November Guest Stars: a Spice Girl a Queen and more!

Monday, November 5th, 2007

This November Ugly Betty is pulling out all the stops. Even though the list of guest stars continue to be full of surprises and pulls in some of the biggest names of Broadway and TV Ugly Betty seems to have outdone itself this November.

Marlo Thomas already guest stared as a love interest that Daniel tries to woo for the magazine. This weeks episode features the long awaited Posh appearance. In “A Nice Day for a Posh Wedding” the Spice Girl and wife of David Beckham a.k.a. Victoria Beckham will be featured in a cameo role as herself. What will Posh be doing in this episode?

Playing the Maid of Honor to Wilhelmina, who really doesn’t appreciate Posh trying to upstage her at her own wedding! Could their be a battle of the Bitches under way? But the guest stars for this episode just keep getting better. Fashion designer Vera Wang also guest stars as herself and designed the wedding gowns that Victoria Beckham and Wilhelmina wear in this episode. Rick Fox also reprises his role as Wilhelmina’s bodyguard with benefits.

The week of November 15, Comedian Mo’Nique guest stars in the episode “I See Me, I.C.U.” The plus size comedian starred in the hugely successful comedy tour The Queens of Comedy, The Parkers with Countess Vaughn and recently in the VH1 reality show Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School.

Mo’Nique is know for her raunchy comedy style and should be great in the role of L’Amanda. The weekend receptionist to Mode who also has a thing for Henry. Photos from the episode show the two engaged in a lip lock. Obviously L’Amanda is written to be very similar to Amanda but can Mode really handle two Amanda’s? I can’t wait to find out!

Betty continues to make new “Friends”

Monday, September 10th, 2007

Marlo Thomas with Jennifer Love Hewitt

Marlo Thomas with Jennifer Love Hewitt

The guest roster keeps on growing over at Ugly Betty. James Van Der Beek, Victoria Beckham and now Marlo Thomas have all been confirmed as guest stars. This season of Ugly Betty looks to be following the same formula of Season 1 by featuring high profile and award winning actors. The best has got to be Marlo Thomas. For fans of the Friends TV series you should remember her as Rachel’s mom. The Emmy award winning Marlo will appear as Sandra Winthrop the owner of a large jewelry company who has a thing for younger men. Yep you guessed it! Daniel (Eric Mabius) will be the man wooing Marla in an attempt to convince his family he’s a competent businessman.

Guest Star Frenzy

Friday, August 10th, 2007


For Season 2 Ugly Betty seems to be making some rather interesting choices for guest stars. First theirs Victoria Beckham whose best know for being married to Soccer star David Beckham and for being a singer in the I-wish-they-would-stay-retired girl group the Spice Girls. Now Vanessa Williams is set to reunite with her ex-husband Rick Fox on the show, where he will be playing her love interest and her body guard of all things. Is anyone else getting a flash back to Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner courtesy The Bodyguard film? Fox a retired NBA player for the Los Angeles Lakers is booked for at least 2 episodes.

The real question is can Posh and Rick Fox act? Posh’s role is reported to be a cameo which shouldn’t be too much of a stretch but Fox’s role will definitely require more acting chops. Here’s hoping both of them are up to the challenge and don’t leave the fans disappointed. If nothing else I can’t wait to see why Wilhelmina needs a bodyguard. I’m guessing Claire Meade wants her husband back! On the fashion front Ugly Betty is making some very wise choices with none other than fashion icon Kenneth Cole set to guest star.

Best Love Life: Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell for having their honeymoon before their wedding, and then going right back to work.

Posh to visit Ugly Betty

Saturday, June 30th, 2007

14458090451press630200784407AM.jpgNot only are the Spice Girls having a Reunion but fans of Posh, also know as Victoria Beckham (wife to soccer icon David Beckhman) may get to see her on Ugly Betty. Eric Mabius apparently let the news leak that the producers were courting Victoria to make a cameo in Ugly Betty. No offense to Posh but I’m hoping that this isn’t true!

Obviously Posh and her eccentric fashion choices and razor thin stick figure would look like a natural fit for a show dealing with the crazy world of fashion and the self obsessed people in it. But unlike the well established actors that Season One featured can Posh act? If were judging by her role in the excruciating Spice Girls Movie no!

Plus theirs the fact that I just don’t want to see Posh on one of my favorite shows! But with a huge world tour planned she might not have the time to visit the sets of Ugly Betty and this is one fan who won’t be disappointed. However some of you guys might feel differently, feel free to share your thoughts.
