Trivia

Fearing competition and high ratings, prominent Brazilian channel Rede Globo bought the rights to this series only to prevent SBT from airing it in 2000. Globo also considered remaking it, which is unusual for the channel since the 60s. The series was, however, bought and aired by RedeTV! in 2003, while SBT later aired the Mexican remake The Prettiest Ugly Girl (2006). See more »

Goofs

In one of the later episodes, Betty, out of fury, imagines herself slapping Armando into a lamp. Armando rubs the wrong side of his cheek, after falling into the lamp. See more »

The best!!!
3 September 2001 | by ran1986See all my reviews

We are in Israel like novelas. we have a channel that only play novels -Better and worse like "la usurpadora". when betty came no one thoutht that it could succeed here, and it came instead of "Los Buscars De Siempre" which was a great novela so it was a big shoes to get into and the fact that it's colombians didn't help too. But - all the israel's people like it! We like Betty, Armando and Berta, like the music, Hugo and all. We laugh every episode many times. I say it's the best novela in the world.
