Nikki Blonsky Gets Ugly Tomorrow
Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky will make her guest appearance on Ugly Betty TOMORROW, January 8.
The 19-year-old actress will play Teri, an assistant at Elle magazine with whom Betty (America Ferrera) initially develops a friendship at first but later turns into a rivalry. The two meet at a networking mixer, where Teri does something that makes Betty’s night super-duper complicated.
Nikki was most excited to act alongside Michael Urie (Wilhemina’s assistant Marc St. James). She gushed, “[He] is next to God in my book. Michael introduced himself and said, ‘Do you want to hear one of my ringtones?’ And he held up his phone and ‘You Can’t Stop the Beat’ came out. All I could think was, ‘Wow, Michael Urie knows who I am and has my voice on his cell phone.’ Crazy!”
Ugly Betty airs @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
