Lauren Velez 's Top Secret Role on "Ugly Betty" Keeps Us Guessing
By Monica Herrera | 01/05/2009 - 16:00

Just before Christmas, it was announced that Lauren Velez, the boricua actress most known for her role on Showtime's Dexter, will join Ugly Betty as a guest star for multiple episodes in 2009. So far, all we know is that Velez will play Elena, a nurse who "enters the lives of the Saurez family"; the folks at ABC are keeping all other details under strict wraps because her role is directly tied to a major turn of events on the hit show--i.e., someone dies!

America Ferrera and Tina Fey to Duke It Out At SAG Awards...Not Really.
By Monica Herrera | 12/18/2008 - 14:01

The Screen Actors Guild Award nominations were announced this morning, and we'd like to say felicidades to America Ferrera, who will vie for Oustanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series. The Ugly Betty star won the award in 2007 but lost to 30 Rock's Tina Fey this year, so expect a showdown between these TV divas when the awards air on January 25! Or maybe not, since neither of them is particularly diva-like, and everyone and their dog is obsessed with Tina this year...but here's hoping anyway.

Who Wore It Best: Cameron or America?
By Monica Herrera | 12/15/2008 - 10:13

At last night's premiere of Shrek: The Musical on Broadway, Cameron Diaz and América Ferrera both ruled the red carpet...and they looked awfully coordinated! Both actresses donned white dresses with festive beading—perfect for the holidays—and braved the cold with stylish black coats draped just so. The only difference was in their makeup and accessories. Cameron used pops of red for dramatic effect, while América went with loose locks and black pointed-toe kitten heels.

UPDATE: Things Get Ugly Between Lindsay Lohan and America Ferrera
By smundhra | 10/23/2008 - 10:08

The catfights at Mode magazine seem to have nothing on the real-life feud between Ugly Betty star América Ferrera, and guest star Lindsay Lohan. The New York Post reports that Lindsay's six-episode contract was cut down to four, at the insistence of América.

One production source said, "It was a mess. Lindsay would show up every day with an entourage of people. She smoked 24/7, and after she left, they had to repaint her dressing room it was such a mess."

America Ferrera: 'Gossip Girl' Teaches Us "To Be Mean"
By smundhra | 09/11/2008 - 17:53

Though most of us look at it as a guilty pleasure, América Ferrera believes there's nothing positive about teen soap dramas like Gossip Girl. "Like, if you're watching The Hills or 90210, all the backstabbing shapes the way we act," the star muses in the October issue of Seventeen. "I mean, I love Blake [Lively]; she's a wonderful friend of mine, but shows like Gossip Girl kind of condition us to be mean."
