I saw this clip originally on The Soup over the weekend and thought it was brilliant. America Fererra and Blake Lively were on Good Day LA to promote that horrific sounding movie, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, and Blake rambled on about Gossip Girl (the show that about 15 people watch) and America was caught on camera looking pissed.
I had made a pointless pact with myself to never watch anything America Ferrera related, but now I may just need to tune into Ugly Betty as I have a new respect for America (the actress, not the country).
So I don’t watch Ugly Betty as I assume people in it are ugly. Yes, I do judge a book by its cover. However news is spreading, like Lindsay in heat, that Ugly Betty is moving to New York City next season and that got me to thinking….is there anyone hot from that show that I should be stalking? I used to sweat Vanessa Williams, but she’s about 50 and change now. Sure, she’s still hot, but I’m not getting served a restraining order for her. I’m assuming that chick who plays Betty is the one with the braces and unibrow, right? Yeah, not so much. I do like me some Rebecca Romijn so I may have to start stalking her. Either way, I have some time to decide.
Back to the story. Ugly Elizabeth is supposed to be based in NYC, but is shot in LA so they came up with the idea to (jump the shark) and relo to the Big Orange. Hooray for us! A Betty “insider” claims that it’s cheaper to shoot in the city that you’re supposed to be located in then it is to recreate that city. That sounds complicated and like a lot of math is involved so I’m going to stop thinking about it. Anyway, time to up your stalkerazzi because Douche-Bag Betty and the whole gang are coming to NYC!
So, as you know not everything I blog about here is breaking news, but sometimes just things that I’m thinking about. Sometimes it’s an “open letter” and sometimes it’s just random ramblings. Today, it’s random ramblings.
So what’s up with Ugly Betty? I don’t get it really. I mean, I also haven’t watched a single episode, but it seems like every time I turn around there’s a commercial about Ugly Betty or there’s some entertainment show turning someone into an “Ugly Betty.” Even though she’s ugly is she supposed to be cute or charming or something? Girls that I used to know who looked like this didn’t have their first date until they were 20 and are still waiting to have sex for the first time. Yet, America seems to be in love with this chick. I still don’t get it.
Why on every entertainment news show are they turing their correspondents into “Ugly Betty’s?” What’s the point of this? I’ve seen Maria Menounos, Vanessa Minnillo, and Willa Ford all turned into “Ugly Betty’s.” Then they send them out onto the street with a hidden camera to see how people treat them. Let me save everyone a little bit of time. No one is ever nice to these people when they’re ugly. It’s just a part of life so let’s deal with it. When these “Ugly Betty’s” go back to the entertainment news room everyone seems shocked when they watch the video of people not helping these ugly people. Shocked, really? I’m not. I don’t help ugly people either. They scare me.
Anyway, people seem to love Ugly Betty. I wonder how long this will last. I mean, Baywatch lasted like 15 years and there were no ugly people on that show. I predict by season 2, Ugly Betty gets an Extreme Makeover which will include, liposuction, eyebrow lift, breast augmentation, chin implant, unibrow removal, and 12 porcelainDiVinciveneers. The show will be canceled by season 3. Who’s with me?
