Things I have learned watching Ugly Betty

  • Hola is pronounced ola (although as Amanda would point out there is an H in it)
  • Accountants can be damn shpexy (Henry? Hello!)
  • Contrary to popular opinion, fashion mags and TV it is ok to eat. Pencil thin is not the norm.
  • Normal woman have jeans that do not fit, eat sandwiches , pizza and/or Mexican food instead of salad and prefer flats instead of heels from time to time. Or all the time.
  • Regardless what Wilhelmina does it is not advisable to have Botox administered by your assistant.
  • Duck fat injected in lieu of a face lift? Bad idea
  • There is such a thing as a butt lift, goes to show how little I know about the advancements in plastic surgery (note – start watching Nip and Tuck)
  • When men opt for sex change surgery contrary to the popular opinion they do not lop it off and keep it in the jar.
  • Pleads with stripes? It can be done, have you seen some of Marc’s outfits?
  • Gucci bag has universal appeal
  • It is not Secretary’s day but Administrative Professionals day
  • It is not a good idea to eat empanadas after midnight
  • If there is one cardinal rule we have all learned from Ugly Betty about fashion mags that is who has the Book rules the magazine
  • By far my favorite line – Mexicans do not have super heroes, we have a speedy little mouse
  • Victoria Beckham cant really act
