 2010.04.15 updated quotes and drama overview.

The series finale aired April 14, 2010, but there is a possibility of an Ugly Betty movie, hinted by America Ferrera and Ana Ortiz, who are excited about the prospect of doing a movie, and it is being considered. 




亮麗的第一印象也許能加上很多分,但最後重要的還是轉得快的腦袋跟溫暖人的關心。


Ugly Betty改編了哥倫比亞RCN電視台1999-2001年的Yo soy Betty, la fea (I am Betty, the ugly one)。為了塑造那個來自紐約皇后區、與曼哈頓格格不入的Betty Suarez,編劇真的是把所有可以醜化America Ferrera外表的元素都放了進去——凌亂的頭髮、藍色的牙套、小新的眉毛、超大的膠框眼鏡,加上所有會突顯她短胖身材的造型。

雖然這樣的Betty之所以能夠踏進被譽為fashion bible的時尚雜誌《Mode》,是因為發行人老爸為了確定甫接手總編輯職務的風流兒子不會再跟自己的助理亂搞在一起,但是Betty還是迷人的。

這小妞不知道哪裡來這麼多的勇氣。她的樂觀跟不服輸,大概來自那永遠為她敞開的家(爸爸Ignacio、姊姊Hilda跟侄子Justin)吧。每次看到Ignacio為了鼓舞Betty而弄的點心,就想到以前跟媽媽的下午茶時間;她泡她的咖啡我喝我的熱可可,然後我們有的沒有的閒扯。

這小妞的的魅力還在於她的善良與機智。在勾心鬥角的媒體產業,她還是可以理直氣壯地做自己,用腦袋說服別人。


Meades集團的Mode magazine是Betty、創意總監Wilhelmina Slater跟Meades家人(包括DanielAlexisClaireBradford)的「戰場」。所有的權力爭奪、創意較勁都在這裡發生。

劇裡《Mode》有個online Web site,現實生活裡ABC也很有心的為Mode做了個網站:www.modeny.com

Ugly Betty還找來超多明星模特兒設計師客串,把Mode kingdom打造得星光四射。

Salma HayekLucy LiuLindsay Lohan都客串了好幾集:Hayek飾演Meade集團旗下《MYW (Modern Young Woman)》雜誌的火辣主編Sophia Reyes,Liu是為Mrs. Meade打官司的亮麗律師Grace Chin,而Lohan則是Betty的高中夢魘Kimmie Keegan

資深媒體人Martha Stewart、CNN's Larry King Live主持人Larry King、WABC-TV's Live with Regis and Kelly主持人Kelly RipaRegis Philbin、從American Idol出來的Katharine McPhee、R&B歌手Omarion、搖滾樂團Kiss的貝斯手Gene Simmons、高貴辣妹Victoria Beckham、設計師Vera WangKenneth Cole、Project Runway評審Nina Garcia、超級名模Naomi CampbellAdriana Lima(Victoria's Secret Fashion Show都會看到她)都曾經以自己的名字出現在Ugly Betty。當然還有很多很多.....


Ugly Betty抱走第64屆金球獎的喜劇類最佳影集和最佳女主角,前一陣子有報導說這一季是《Mode》首席裁縫師兼衣櫥管理人Christina McKinney的最後一季。啊~我好喜歡飾演她的Ashley Jensen說。

希望第三季會有個好的ending...
