The Beautiful Ones

I'm sure many of you have heard of the new ABC show called "Ugly Betty".



Well, this is what the actress who portrays Betty looks like in real life:



Does anyone else have a problem with this? Don't you think that a character named Ugly Betty should be played by someone who is actually, I don't know, ugly? If they had chosen someone less conventionally beautiful, then others who aren't "gorgeous" (the majority of people) could look up to her knowing that looks aren't needed in order to be a star. But no, they give the gig to a beauty. What a joke. I also have problems with putting braces and thick eyebrows on someone and then calling them "ugly".

I deleted my comment which you will probably see in your email-I misread your post and therefore, my comment didn't make sense.

Incidentally, I'm glad that I misread it. I thought you were calling her ugly in real life and then going on to say that you had a problem with calling braces and bushy eyebrows ugly.

:-/

Please excuse me. I'm very sleepy today.

No problem, Mags. The show is a good thing as far as showing that one doesn't need to be "beautiful" in order to work at a fashion mag (or anywhere for that matter).

I didn't know she looked any different. (I don't watch the show.) But you are so right!!!
