Sophia Reyes rules Daniel Meade's heart masterly, soon getting him to propose to her and is even accepted as bride by his parents, who like her. Meanwhile as Betty's new boss, Sophia orders her to replace a suddenly prohibited lead article in her new feminist magazine by one on the social experiences of her, common ugly bird, working in Daniel's fancy fashion magazine, so she goes back there interviewing everybody.

Becki Newton multiple role?
13 January 2007 | by public-92See all my reviews

Does Becki Newton also play the character of the girl who sits across from Betty at her new desk, in this episode? I assume this character will not be repeating, so they only had to pull it off once. Maybe I am totally mistaken, but I really thought the actress who plays Amanda is also this girl in the bright yellow outfit. She has glasses and a mole and seems to irritate Betty with her lack of sophistication, which is also kind of cute and endearing while being intentionally ironic. I wish it were possible to just make a short comment here. The first sentence is all I really wanted to say. Everything else was just to get the server to accept my submission.
