TV DivaGal Exclusive! How Vanessa Williams Really Feels About Ugly Betty's Move to WednesdaysBy Delaina Dixon | December 23, 2009 | Entertainment
TV DivaGal isn’t the only person happy to see Ugly Betty toss off its Friday night post and slip into ABC Wednesdays. (After all, what DivaGal is home on a Friday night?)
Vanessa Williams, who plays fashion slayer Wilhelmina Slater on the series, is overjoyed over the move.
“The fans have spoken up. They said, ‘I can’t find the show, do not kill this show and we love the show,'” Vanessa told the TV DivaGal at the exclusive premiere party opening for Giannillo ΓÇô The Salon, owned by Vanessa’s celebrity hair stylist, Greg Giannillo, on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
“I’m so happy that this will be another opportunity for people who don’t even know the show to see it,” she shared.
“It’s a fantastic time slot, and our show this season just gets better and better.”
There’s a reason for that. Can you say Connor Owens?
“All the bloggers and fans ask for more Connor,” Vanessa exclaimed about her onscreen love interest, played by hottie Aussie Grant Bowler.
“I love it,” Vanessa declared.
After seeing him in those tight trunk shorts in the Bahamas, we totally understand, Vanessa. And yes, there will be plenty more of Connor in 2010.
What a great way to start off the year!
Ugly Betty moves to Wednesdays beginning Jan. 6 at 10 p.m. on ABC.
