Storyline

Betty Suarez is smart, sweet and hard working. The only problem is that she's not thin and beautiful like all her coworkers at Mode, the high-fashion magazine where she works. The only reason the publisher hired her to be his son's secretary, is that he thought Betty was someone who Daniel would never sleep with. Betty's hard work and determination earns Daniel's respect, as she helps him find his way through the shark infested waters of the fashion industry. Ugly Betty is based on a Colombian telenovela "Yo Soy Betty La Fea". Written by Peter Kevin Reeves

Trivia

Show creator Silvio Horta, who is openly gay, addressed rumors about Justin's sexuality by confirming (in a February 2007 USA Today interview) that as Justin ages, he will experience "the journey." Horta also said, "I see myself in him. Growing up, I certainly felt like an outsider at times. But there's this sweet innocence in Justin that sees the positive." In 2008, Horta expanded on this statement, telling a different interviewer that when he started to create the character of Justin, "it really just popped into my head....I tried five different types of kids, and they all felt the same. Then suddenly, I thought - What if you had a little gay kid? I wrote him that way, and it was like: This is fun! This is interesting and different." Toward the end of the final season, Justin did get his first kiss from another boy, Austin, and he and Austin started dating. See more »

Quirky and funny
30 September 2006 | by (Aurora, NY) – See all my reviews

Not the usual network fare. The story may be an old one, but the cast delivers and there are some amusing barbs that strike home. The Hispanic-American environment for Betty's family gives the formula new life, with true-to-life touches like the telenovela playing on the TV at home. Mark Indelicato as Betty's nephew is believable with a subtle touch in a role that could easily be overplayed for cheap laughs. Vanessa Williams gets a chance to vamp as the conniving, power-hungry rival for the company, and Gina Gershon offers a wonderful parody -- or is it? -- of an aging supermodel. The Beautiful People -- and the less-than-perfect who also inhabit their world, however under-appreciated -- are here in force.
