'Ugly Betty' exclusive: Vanessa Williams' bro cast as Willie's twin!

Posted on

It looks like Ugly Betty‘s new Wednesday timeslot is going to be a real drag for Wilhelmina Slater — but in a good way.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Vanessa Williams’ real-life bro, Chris Williams (a.k.a. Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s Crazy Eyez Killah!), will guest star in an early ’10 episode as Willie’s drag queen doppelganger, Wilhediva Hater.

Good, right? Wait, it gets better.

Here’s the set-up, per an Ugly insider: Willie gets tipped off that someone has been regularly impersonating her at a drag club and she tries to shut the act down. That is, until she realizes that faux Willie could come in handy by attending meetings and events on her behalf. As a result, “The two end up working together,” says my spy.

Two words: Gen. Ius.
