Storyline

An unattractive young woman named Betty Suarez receives a job at Mode magazine after the owner of Meade Publications, Bradford Meade, catches his son, Daniel, in flagrante delicto with an assistant. Following the tragic death of the former editor Faye Summers, Daniel has assumed the role of editor-in-chief at Mode. At home, Betty has been dumped by Walter, who says he loves Gina Gambarro-- but Betty has a strong family unit with her father, sister Hilda, and nephew Justin to support her. In her professional life, Betty is a misfit at Mode. Treated with contempt because she is unfashionable, not thin and not considered to be attractive, Betty, however, does produce good ideas for the up coming photo shoot but Daniel ignores them. In an attempt to make her quit, Daniel torments Betty by asking her to stand-in as a model at the shoot. When Betty actually arrives on set wearing the ill-fitting clothes, poses for photos, and is mocked by all present, she leaves the set. Daniel follows ... Written by Missy

a very promising show
5 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this show is on a different level than the other shows. It shows loyalty and courage in face of difficulty. Betty is an interesting character and she makes you love her for herself. She has strong positive qualities which come out in the show. I think that this show will touch many people and will have many surprising affects. young girls will see that the beautiful people are not always the most gifted. Honesty and loyalty does pay. I think they could do allot with the show at least for a year or so. The show can relate to experiences that people had in their lives. I haven missed one episode yet.I look forward to seeing where they go with this in the days to come. Angela Tirone from Staten Island, NY
