    Bad news for Los Angeles, good news for me I guess:
    Ugly Betty's Move to New York: "It's a Done Deal"

    When it comes to New York, Ugly Betty has apparently come to the conclusion that nothing beats the real thing.

    In a fairly unprecedented move for an established hour drama, ABC has decided to shift the show's entire production to within stalking distance of me New York next season. The real New York. "It's a done deal," says one Betty insider.

    Although Ugly Betty is set in the Big Apple, the show is shot entirely in La La Land. Whenever Gotham is featured as a backdrop in a scene, what you're probably seeing is a studio backlot, a random street in downtown L.A. or, in the case of Betty's Queens nabe, an elaborate green screen.

    Although an ABC Studios spokesperson was unavailable for comment, my Betty source says Alphabet execs see the East Coast move as both a way to cut costs ("It's generally cheaper to shoot in the city you're trying to portray") and give the show an authentic New York feel. It's doubtful they'll get much resistance from the actors, many of whom either hail from New York (Vanessa Williams and Ana Ortiz) or have called it home at one time (Juilliard grad Michael Urie).

    As far as I'm concerned — and by "I," I mean me and you, too — it sounds win-win. You see, it's much easier to stalk interview BFFs Urie, Ortiz and Becki Newton if they live just a few blocks away as opposed to a few thousand miles. Duh.
    I couldn't agree more with that last sentence. It would be fun to happen upon a location where they are filming on my way to work. And since I work near Bryant Park (where Fashion Week happens), I suspect I can kill 2 stalking birds with one trip, both Betty and Project Runway.

    It used to be that it cost more to film on location. Something has changed in Hollywood for the reverse to be true now...

    Sorry, Project Runway is relocating to LA. Damn that Heidi Klum!

    That's only half-bad news; Season 6 (the Lifetime Golden Girls season) will spend the first half of the season in NY, the 2nd half in LA. The finale will still be at NY's Fashion Week. (But I digress...)

    Eee! When Gio said "I don't wanna be the rebound guy. I wanna be the guy", I started squeaking out loud and my dad poked his head in to see what was going on.
    I'm 23 years old. lol. And then my best friend, also 23 years old, calls me right after and starts squeaking too. I love how giddy this show makes us. Reminds me of high school and the Backstreet Boys. I'm such a Gio fangirl. lol

    Ok fine then, Betty, if you don't want him, I call shotgun on Gio!

    Freddy Rodríguez, the actor who plays Gio, certainly doesn't look like he is 33 years old, does he?

    OK. I'm officially in love with Gio. Was he sexy (and sweet, too) tonight or what?

    But if that's not possible, gimme a Margarita...shaken, not stirred...and hold the salt, please.

    How sincere was Gio last night when he told Betty he didn't want to be the rebound guy? I was all for Henry, but I am loving Betty with Gio.

    You definitely have to watch it CRTW!

    It was fantastic! I loved everything about it. It was definitely the Ugly Betty we love and I'm sad that next week's the finale already. It seems like it just came back.
