Things Get 'Ugly' for 'America's Next Top Model' Cycle 3's YaYa DaCosta

21 September 2009 11:00 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

There's certainly a lot to be excited about on the new season of Ugly Betty, and here's another thing we can add to that list.  Reports have it that America's Next Top Model Cycle 3 runner-up YaYa DaCosta has been pegged for a role in the hit comedy series.

Broadway World reports that the actress, who isn't famous just for facing off with Tyra Banks, will be taking over the role of Nico for the ABC show.  The character was previously played by Jowharah Jones in earlier seasons of Ugly Betty, but it's going to DaCosta now.

'Ugly Betty' recast: 'Top Model' alum is Willie's daughter!

11 August 2009 4:01 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Somewhere Tyra Banks is smiling. Polarizing America's Next Top Model alum Yaya Dacosta—she was cycle 3's runner-up—has been tapped to take over the recurring role of Wilhelmina's defiant daughter Nico on Ugly Betty, sources confirm to me exclusively. The character—originated by Jowharah Jones—resurfaces in the Oct. 9 season premiere and promptly gets caught up in one of the show's new mysteries. Dacosta's previous acting credits include All My Children and that forgettable dance movie with Antonio Banderas. On a scale of 1-10 (1 being "ugh, she was an arrogant snot on Top Model!" and 10 being "woo-hoo, I knew she was destined for greatness!"), what do you give this recast? More Ugly Betty Scoop Sopranos' Meadow is Daniel's new assistant! »
