Ugly Betty, The Box and The Bunny

Snippet 7

Guest Stars for this episode are: Lucy Davis (Fashion TV hostess) , Scottie Thompson (Photo Editor), Cicely Daniels (Zelda), Ava Gaudet (Gina Gambarro) , Sarah Jones (II) (Natalie Whitman)

Ugly Betty was back to Mode and she had a BIG smile on her face as she walked through the corridor to her office carrying a box to her desk. She placed the box on her desk and took out various personal decorative items and arranged them on her desk. Her colleagues looked on from across a transparent glass that divided their office and hers and were laughing.

The last item to be placed on her desk was a pink and green stuffed bunny, wearing a mortarboard and holding a certificate in its paw. Betty placed the bunny and facing the same direction as her PC. Marc walked towards her and on seeing the bunny, he stopped, closed his eyes and opened them again before moving towards her desk. “Great bunny”, he said with a fake smile on his face. “Ah! Thank you, my sister gave that to me when I graduated from Queens’ College”, said Betty.

Marc said “Ah! One of America’s best value colleges” and Betty said “Yeah! That’s the one”. Betty told him that it’s like her good luck charm and here she was where she always wanted to be - magazine publishing. He congratulated her for her accomplishment and for personalizing her desk, saying it was so different and “so you”.

Wilhelmina called Marc away with a sharp tone of voice. Betty looked up and saw Daniel through the large glass window that divided his office and hers. He was on the phone as he beckoned Betty into his office.

Hear Tosin Speak:
"Ugly Betty is a movie you will love the moment you start reading this episodes. It's plot is quite different from the usual telenovela that we are used to but I assure you that you'll fall in love with the character - Betty.

Justin Timberlake - A Star’s Down-To-Earth Trait

There is something about Justin Timberlake that I’d like to share with telenovela lovers. I know most of us are lovers of the entertainment world (b’cos that’s our niche). I'm a fan of Timberlake since NSYNC, I espcially love their song titled 'This I promise You' from the album 'No String Attached'.

I took special interest in him because of his mannerism and way of life in the real world (sorry, I'm not going to discuss his personal life here), which is somewhat different from what is expected of a successful pop musician like him.

I mean, he has been successful since the time of NSYNC but still remains his humble self.
Just to share the lastest two of his (I think genuine) characteristics. Before now, this guy said he had not used scent for a decade. Why? Because he realized he wanted to smell like himself and not something else.

News has it that it took a lot of persuasion to get him to agree to making a deal with Givenchy.

His signature scent ‘Play’, which has a fresh scent fragrance, was launched in Paris in June this year.

Want to hear the latest?

Recently, he revealed that he grooms his hair by himself.

This fact humbles me.

Hello? This is JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, an Award winning artiste!

Reasons? He prefers cutting his hair himself rather than spending hundreds of dollars on grooming and also, he does not want to indulge in unnecessarily beauty routine just to feel good about his appearance.

He hoped that revealing his down-to-earthiness will prove that he is more real than other celebrities.

Want to hear his parting comment? I quote: “I don't like divas and I don't want to be one. People have a perception that I might be that way."

This news has caused a lot of argument between my colleagues and I, dividing us into three opinion groups.

The first group (which I belonged to) agreed that he is real to have remained himself even after money and fame came. We feel this should be appreciated and emulated by other celebrities.

The second group said, What? He is only pretending (you know) trying to play the role model, and that he’ll soon get bored of it.

The third group said, Men? This guy’s problem is stinginess.

So, there you go Telenovela Lovers, what do you think?

Some of you probably know about Justin Timberlake more than these debaters (I'm not saying anything more).
