Becki Newton Milkshake

I am still recovering from laughing so hard at Amanda’s ‘Milkshake’ performance from this week’s episode. I don’t think I could love her any more than I do now! And I am SO using her dance moves next time I go out clubbing, haha! But aside from that, there were some pretty sad moments in the episode too. To be honest, I had kinda guessed Bradford was going to croak, so I was hardly that surprised when her toppled over at the altar. I was not prepared for Daniel firing Betty though! I love their relationship, and to see Daniel so upset and disappointed in Betty was heartbreaking. My flatmates and I all let out a collective ‘NOOO!’ when he fired her. The episode also included the arrival of Christina’s husband and the announcement that he won’t be around for much longer. I don’t know about him, do you think he’s playing her?

On the subject of Amanda, isn’t she amazing!? It’s no secret that she’s my favourite character so I was ecstatic to learn a while ago that Becki would be cover girl for the UK Esquire Magazine for this month. Thank you to Vicky who emailed me about the cover, here it is for you to enjoy! I have purchased the magazine today so expect scans in the gallery shortly.

Frenemies Michael & Becki have James Hayman in for a chat this week in the official podcast. I would have uploaded it sooner but my iTunes messed up and didn’t download it until recently. Doh! Oh well, better late than never

If you haven’t heard already, which would be quite unlikely, the Writer’s Strike in America is in full swing. For those who don’t know what it’s about, the writers are protesting about pay levels to with internet streaming and other media outlets. This means no more scripts will be written for the show until it is all resolved. They currently have 13 written, but once it gets to the 13th episode, it could spell the end of Ugly Betty, Season 2. Awful, isn’t it?! The crazed Ugly Betty fan in me go angry with the writers, but in the end, it’s the network’s fault for not paying them appropriately. Not meaning to worry you, but the last strike took 22 weeks to resolve! I don’t think I can last that long! Of course, not just Ugly Betty is affected, other high profile shows such as Desperate Housewives, Heroes & Grey’s Anatomy have all shut down production. Whatever you make of it, here’s a picture of the cast supporting the strike, complete with placards!

Ugly Betty Writer’s Strike

Ugly Betty has approached some interesting storylines, but this one takes the biscuit!

Rebecca Romijn wants Ugly Betty writers to make her character fat so she can have a baby, and has recently discussed writing a pregnancy into the show.

The blonde beauty – who plays transsexual Alexis Meade in the hit US TV show – is desperate to start a family with her actor husband Jerry O’Connell and they recently had dinner with ‘Ugly Betty’ producer Marco Pennette to discuss writing her pregnancy into the show.

Rebecca, 35, told the USA Today newspaper: “It could be a hysterical pregnancy. There are people who want to be pregnant so badly that they put on weight in that area. Or maybe Alexis could put on a tremendous amount of weight, and I’d wear a fat suit around the pregnancy.” [Click for full story >>>]

Haha! This sounds hilarious! I didn’t know Rebecca & jerry were trying for a baby, good luck to them!

Lindsay Lohan Ugly Betty

Is Ugly Betty going to be getting a bit Freaky? Or perhaps a bit Mean? Superstar Lindsay Lohan is apparently in talks to become the latest star to join the already long list of Ugly Betty guest stars.

Lindsay Lohan is in talks to star in three episodes of hit US show Ugly Betty, it has been reported.

The actress will play a fallen beauty queen who is forced to work at a fast food restaurant after falling behind with her rent.

A show insider told the New York Observer: “Betty tries to help Lindsay’s character by getting her a job at Mode, the fashion magazine where she works on the show.”

Lindsay has had a pretty tough couple of years, so it would be good to see her in a fun, positive role on Ugly Betty. Saying that though, if it is true it may have to wait till Season 3 due to the writer’s strike. This probably also mean the musical episode, which was going to be Valentine’s Day themed has been scrapped until writing starts again. Ugh, I don’t want to think about it, it will just depress me!
