Bettylicious

Oh, Ugly Betty. You had me at ponch-o. Every time I watch, I giggle like an idiot. Sure, you’re getting dangerously close to “Will & Grace” levels of gueststar-itis (For those keeping score at home, we’ve seen Salma Hayek, Debi Mazar, Gina Gershon, Kathy Griffin, Rebecca Romijn, Tim Gunn and Katharine McPhee. Still to come are Lucy Liu, Jerry O’Connell and Naomi Campbell). But last night’s episode was fantastic. No, wait, it was gaytastic. Yes, that’s a word. No, don’t look it up. Trust me. Highlights: Wilhelmina using Marc as her “seeing-eye gay.” Justin as television’s most adorable future gay. Alex turned Alexis explaining her transition to Daniel (Max could learn a thing or six from her in the compelling, concise transcharacter department). And Amanda screeching, “She’s a model, shiny things confuse her.” Watch it now on ABC. It’s Friday. No one in the office will notice.

Last night's show was nothing less than brilliant. Every other line was a keeper. The program is starting to really hit it's stride. And sissy-boy Justin is the coolest guy ever!

TIM "make it work" GUNN!! Love that man. How can I watch this show? I caught the Betty Bowl, but now need to play catch up.

Love the show!
Justin is so adorable with his young self. His family so cool in accepting him the way he is! Now that's rare.

Love this show, so many quotable lines, it spoils me, it really does. Plus, Rebecca Romijn OWNED that runway, it was great seeing her strut and it was perfect for Alexis's 'coming out', as it were.
