Hey! I have my computer set up and connected in my university room and everything should now be back to normal. Things are a bit weird so far, but I’m sure I’ll settle in soon :)

Anyway, did you enjoy the Emmy’s? I didn’t get to view them, or even view the result online till the day after, and I have to say I was shocked! First of all, HUGE congratulations to America for winning ‘Best Comedy Actress’ but I was disappointed that Ugly Betty only won 2 of the 11 awards it was nominated for. Oh well, 2 is better than nothing. Everyone looked great at the awards, and I particularly liked Vanessa’s feathery dress, hehe!

If you didn’t already know, some of the cast have been helping spread the word of GLAAD’s ‘Be an Ally and a Friend’ initiative. Check out the public service announcement they appear in here and then check out the GLAAD site. I think it’s a great initiative and with Ugly Betty being a gay friendly show, they are the perfect people to raise awareness.

I was checking out the brilliant Ugly Betty News and noticed an article on a new range of Ugly Betty style fashion. As Tom, webmaster of the site, says, I’m not sure whether it is real or just a fake promo site for the show. The fact that it’s not in English doesn’t help either! It’s cool to have a look around though, so give the banner below a click

Ugly Betty Fashion

Did you hear about the ‘High School Musical’ scandal? Vanessa Hudgens, who plays Gabriella in the films, had some private photos of herself leaked to the press which caused quite a bit of controversy amongst fans and their parents. At the Emmy’s on Sunday, our very own Vanessa was asked what advice she would pass on after experiencing a similar situation herself.

Posing for nude photos may have cost Vanessa Williams her Miss America crown in 1984, but the Ugly Betty star says Vanessa Hudgens will survive her own racy photos scandal.

“She’s got talent and she’s professional, and those are the things that’ll help her survive in life,” Williams, 44, said at the ET/PEOPLE Emmy party on Sunday. “You know, welcome to the lesson of hard knocks. She got her first big one right now.”

More than two decades ago, Williams was pressured to give up her crown and at least $2 million worth of contracts after the images appeared in Penthouse, but she was successful in her fight back to the top. Appearing on the cover of PEOPLE shortly after the scandal broke, Williams said, “I am not a lesbian and I am not a slut, and somehow I am going to make people believe me.”

The fallout after the nude pic “taken privately” of Hudgens, 18, surfaced on several Web sites on Sept. 6 was minimal. The young star apologized to fans and has kept a low profile the past few weeks, but Disney stands behind the actress and she has not lost any of her endorsement deals.

“I met her and she’s a very sweet talented girl and I’ve seen High School Musical 2 a zillion times because of my kids … and she’ll be fine,” Williams said.

I’m sure by the time High School 3 comes out, it’ll all be forgotten!

To finish, here’s the descriptions of the first two episodes of Season 2. One week tomorrow [YAY!]

Episode 1 : ‘How Betty Got Her Grieve Back’

Betty’s life is in chaos after a series of very unfortunate events, but despite all that’s happened, she’s still in denial about one thing how much Henry’s departure has affected her. Meanwhile, Amanda turns to junk food and to Marc in dealing with the revelation that Fey Sommers was her real mother, and Wilhelmina schemes to turn the tragic Meade family events to her advantage, on the season premiere of ABC’s award winning Ugly Betty.

Episode 2 : ‘Family Affair’

Betty doesn’t know what to do when she finds out Wilhelmina’s hunky new bodyguard (guest star Rick Fox as Dwayne) is taking the job to a whole new level. And then there’s her own love life – now that Henry’s back, can they just be friends? Meanwhile, Bradford uses Alexis’ amnesia to re-write family history, Hilda comes to terms with recent events, and Amanda gets a surprising inheritance from Fey Sommers
