Storyline

A young, smart and wise woman named Betty Suarez goes on a journey to find her inner beauty. The only problem is that it's hard for a slightly less attractive woman to find her beauty surrounded by tall skinny models at a fashion magazine but Betty doesn't let this stop her or her positive attitude towards her work.

Quotes

Betty Suarez: [Betty wants to set up Daniel with another celebrity] Somebody like Jennifer Aniston would be amazing.
Christina McKinney: Betty, fixing up Daniel isn't part of your job description, is it?
Betty Suarez: I know, I know, I just feel so guilty. What about Tara Reid?
Christina McKinney: Lovely. Dinner with Tara Reid, breakfast at the free clinic.
Betty Suarez: Right. Oh, Gisele! I wish I could make that happen, Gisele would make Daniel forget about Sofia.
Christina McKinney: So do it.
Betty Suarez: What do you mean, "So do it"? It's Gisele, it's not like we go to the same laundromat.
Christina McKinney: Don't be such ...

Ugly Betty: A Diamond In The Rough
28 September 2006 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

I fell in love with this show! Executively produced by Salma Hayek and starring the always lovely America Ferrera as Betty Suarez, a young woman who breaks into the fashion industry as an assistant to the editor-in-chief of Mode magazine Daniel Meade (sexy Eric Mabius). Betty is sweet, smart, and always on top of things, but of course she is not the most beautiful girl, but when they say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder they were not kidding. Squaring off against Daniel Meade is the conniving Wilhemina (Vanessa Williams...I smell Emmy) who covets the title of editor-in-chief. I just saw the pilot episode and this show is a winner and I hope it stays on the air because of America Ferrera who is lovely and spirited as Betty. She is without question the female heroine that all young women need in times where women are expected to be sexy and beautiful under superficial means.
