As fans of Ugly Betty know, last season ended with Betty (América Ferrera) receiving a promotion to features editor, meaning that Mode Editor-in-Chief Daniel Meade is now without an assistant. Enter Jamie-Lynn Sigler!

EW.com is reporting that the Sopranos actress has recently signed on to play the role of Betty's replacement on the hit ABC show. Sigler will play Natalie, a "sexy, spiritual, fun" lady who steps on the scene as Meade's new assistant just when things are going from bad to worse for him. Hmm, sounds like she might be just the right girl for Meade to lean on as he copes with the death of his wife.

We can't wait to see what Sigler does with the character! She will make her debut as Natalie in Ugly Betty's second episode. The two-hour season premiere of Betty airs Oct. 9.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
