Ugly Betty dishes out its last episode of the year tonight!
When the show ended two weeks ago, there were so many unanswered questions: Will Justin and Randy ever be friends again? Will Hilda find love with a politician? What’s the deal with the Wilhelmina, Connor, Daniel and Molly quadrangle? Jeez!
Dying to know what the future holds for the Suarez family and the Meade minions, we caught up with Betty star Mark Indelicato at The Sunflower Children Texas Hold’em Charity Benefit at NYC’s Gotham Hall to get a little clarity.
Not only did the 14-year-old actor hook us up, he also spilled the beans on what role Nikki Blonsky, who guest stars when the show returns Jan. 6, will play. Thank you!
Will Justin and his best friend Randy ever reunite?
They kind of left it that Justin and Randy have gone their separate ways. As of right now, he’s not coming back. But you never know. They might change the storyline in episode 17 and be like, ”Oh we want to bring Randy back.” and they’ll be friends again. As of right now they left it at a harsh level, but I would love to see him again.
As city official Archie Rodriguez, guest star Ralph Macchio has been flirting a bit with your onscreen mom Hilda. Is he going to be her new love interest on the show?
As of right now, no from what we’ve seen. He only has a few episodes that he’s in, and I don’t know if that’s enough. I think they want to lay off a little with Hilda’s love interest because she lost her husband and then she dated a married man. She hasn’t had that good of luck in love lately.
Nikki Blonsky from the movie Hairspray guest stars on Betty next month. Who does she play?
Betty and the character Mark get in a little fiasco with Nikki, whose character’s name is Terri. The whole episode is about getting gossip on people and getting people’s business cards. It’s like a contest. And it just so happens that something really tragic happens and Betty and Mark need to figure out something quick. Nikki’s kind of mixed in the middle of that. And it’s so funny especially because Nikki isn’t the high-high fashion girl.
What was she like on set?
She’s just like the rest of us. She fits in perfectly with us and when she was there she had so much fun at the table reading. She was just ecstatic to be there because she’s a fan of the show, which we don’t get a lot of with our guest stars. She was like, “Ahhh!”
What’s the deal with Connor and his fiancee, Molly?
Wilhelmina kind of has a crush on Connor and Daniel sort of likes Molly, so they’re going to be keeping up with those characters. The show is going to be playing around with that for the next few episodes.
My fellow blogger Valerie Nome caught up with Vanessa Williams at the All State Insurance Company’s Home for the Holidays teen safe driving campaign held at Marriott Marquis on Dec. 2, where the actress confirmed that Connor and Wilhelmina indeed get together. "She wins him over. That’s a little foreshadowing, but if you turn in Thursday, you’ll see!"
You know we will!
