Ugly.........the new black


okay, if you didn't catch the series premiere of ugly betty last night, you missed out! what a damn cute show. it is on thursday nights at 8pm right before grey's anatomy.

if you took a moment to get to know betty suarez, you'd see how sweet, intelligent and hard-working she is. but few people do, because in the world of high fashion betty is the oversized peg in the petite round hole. when publishing mogul bradford meade hands the reigns of Mode, the bible of the fashion industry, over to this son, daniel, he specifically hires betty as his son's new assistant – mostly because she's the only woman in nyc daniel won't sleep with. though this "player" is reluctant to accept her at first, betty's indomitable spirit and bright ideas will eventually win him over. neither of them really knows the ins and outs of the fashion world, but the two are a formidable team against those who will do anything to see them fall.

based on "Yo Soy Betty La Fea," the groundbreaking colombian telenovela that became an international phenomenon, "Ugly Betty" is from touchstone television. academy award nominee and emmy award winner Salma Hayek is executive producer, along with Silvio Horta ("Urban Legends"), Ben Silverman, ("The Office"), Jose Tamez ("The Maldonado Miracle"), James Parriott ("Grey's Anatomy") and James Hayman ("Joan of Arcadia").

the show is gay gay gay, but is mucho enjoyable for all audiences. check out the website at http://abc.go.com/primetime/uglybetty/index.html you can even watch the premiere episode right on the site. well worth it!

ugly........the new black this season!
