Betty a La Mode

Bet You Didn’t See This One Coming…

This is my first mid-week post in ages, I have been so busy with work that this has been impossible up until now. There was quite a lot of news too, do I thought I’d get some out of the way now!

To be honest, I wasn’t that surprised when I heard this. Penelope Cruz is apparently in talks to become the latest addition to the guest list on Ugly Betty. Her and Salma are such good friends, I knew it would only be a matter of time. This is still unconfirmed though, and with the writer’s strike, who knows what’s going to happen!  Penelope is a truly great actress, unlike some of the guest stars *cough*Posh Spice*cough*, so I really hope this is true [Source]

If you hadn’t already heard, ‘Buffy’s Eliza Dushku will be appearing in Episode 209, “Giving Up The Ghost” as a Mode cover girl. I was a big fan of ‘Buffy’ and of Eliza’s character ‘Faith’, so I can’t wait to see her swap kicking vampire butt to working the catwalk!

“Giving Up the Ghost” – A Wilhelmina-induced crisis at Mode finds everyone scrambling to re-create an issue on deadline. Desperate times call for desperate measures, as Daniel and Betty try to break wild child cover girl (Eliza Dushku as Cameron Ashlock) out of rehab for a re-shoot, and Alexis tries to charm the printer (guest star David J. Steinberg) into extending their time. Meanwhile, Betty struggles with an unwelcome (and persistent) visitor who hopes to goad her into making good on a promise, on “Ugly Betty,” THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

The strike is still ongoing and TV Guide’s Ausiello sadly confirms that this means the musical episode, for now, is cancelled.

Question: Please tell me that in the six or seven episodes left of Ugly Betty, the musical episode is included! — Katie
Ausiello: Unfortunately, it’s not. That episode hadn’t been approved yet anyway. It was still in the idea stage when the strike happened.

They better include it in Season 2 [Part 2] or Season 3, if it comes to that!

Another little snippet about the strike reveals that the last three episodes which have been written may not be up to par with the other episodes.

“Ugly Betty” is also continuing production. 13 scripts have been written and it is possible all will be produced, but the writers won’t be available for last-minute rewrites for the final 3, so they may be inferior in quality.

Just get Becki & Michael to wing it, I’m sure it’d be hilarious!

And to end, check out these promo pictures featuring ‘Golden Girl’ Betty White.  These are from Episode 210, ‘Bananas For Betty’ where Willi tries to improve her public image by doing good in the community. It all goes well until she meets poor old Betty. Betty White, that is!

I LOVE Betty White, she is such the stereotypical sweet old lady!


Haha! This picture is hilarious! Willi helping keep the streets of New York clean



 I think I’d be as scared as Betty looks here, if Wilhelmina came to visit me in hospital!
