'Ugly Betty' Bites: Betty takes on Wilhelmina

Posted on

How delicious was last night’s episode of Ugly Betty? Hands down, the best moment was the hammy flash-forward scene where we saw a future version of Betty (America Fererra) reimagined in the divalicious image of Wilhelmina (Vanessa Williams). Honestly, who requests a snack of carrot shavings? And that bit with the puppy at the end? Genius! The sequence produced at least one of the night’s best bites, which is one of the four moments included in our “Quote Off” video pitting the best Betty quips of the night against each other.
