Ugly Betty Humiliated

Snippet 15

She reminded him that he asked her to dress up for their lunch-appointment and swirled around for him to see. He replied, “and dressed up you did”, dumbfounded and not too pleased with her looks. He then told Betty to call the restaurant and tell them to change their table to a private one at the back for the privacy they need with Bianci. (Oh no!) He went back to his office totally forgetting what brought him to her office in the first place. When he got to his office he peeped at her, amazed at her lack of fashion sense, while Betty stood there, hands on hips enchanted by her new self.

At the board meeting, Daniel presented his ideas for a make-over for Mode while Betty unveiled the idea Mode cover displayed on a mobile board. He informed them that he had Vincent Bianci in mind to do the Photo shoot because he was one of the best. His father voiced his doubts but Daniel assured him that he could convince Bianci to work with them again. But, Wilhelmina didn’t allow him to finish his presentation. She got up, cat-walked to where they were and stood beside Betty (Daniel was standing beside the board on one side while Betty was on the other side). She saucily remarked that change was a positive thing but that sometimes it could spiral out of control and could transit from simple designs to bold new colours and daring new looks while gesticulating at Betty’s hairdo, make-up and outfit (comparing Daniel’s make-over with Betty’s new look).

Daniel called Wilhelmina with a warning note to this voice but that only spurred her on. She finally nailed the coffin by saying that the truth was that he hadn’t improved on a thing (still looking Betty all over), and that in some cases, change makes a bad situation worse.”

(You see why I call her The Slayer?)

While Wilhelmina was putting on this show at Betty’s expense, Marc look at her, admiring her combat skills – talk of birds of same feathers.

Oh! Poor Ugly Betty. To say she was embarrassed was an understatement. Every other attendee beside Daniel and his father were trying hard to keep themselves from giggling. She escaped to the ladies room to cry. Daniel showed up there to make sure she was alright. She told Daniel that she could not go with him to the lunch appointment, that he should take Amanda. Daniel tried to persuade her but she refused. So, he had no choice than to take Amanda who was to pretend to be Betty Suarez! Bradford decided to go along (I think because Bianci). When they got to the restaurant, Vincent Bianci was already at the table waiting for them. He and Daniel shook hands but he refused to take Bradford’s hands saying he remembered him.

Meanwhile, Betty composed herself and left the ladies to her desk, all around her, everyone mocked her. She got to her desk and discovered that Daniel had forgotten to take the contract documents along. She quickly wore her coat and asked Marc to come with her to the restaurant to help deliver it but Marc took it from her that he would deliver it by himself. Betty got angry, yelled at him and snatched the document from his hands, putting him in his place.

Bianci asked Amanda about one of the teachers at the school they both (supposedly) attended and Amanda flopped, saying that the teacher died in her usual seductive manner.
