Ugly Betty gets a Queens welcome

America FerreraWhile Ugly Betty's move to New York City might not have been good news for the show's crew, Queens residents couldn't be happier to have the Suarez family in town. Fans welcomed the comedy series with a block party-style celebration in Jackson Heights, Betty's home base.

Actors America Ferrera and Tony Plana attended the event and thanked fans in both English and Spanish. The Ugly Betty cast and crew have already been seen filming in their new, more authentic surroundings. As Allison mentioned, America Ferrera was recently spotted riding a motorcycle in Brooklyn (dressed as Betty Suarez, of course).

It's about time we heard some positive news about the Ugly Betty move. Christopher Gorham decided not to follow the show to NYC, opting for a role the CBS series Harper's Island instead. Last season ended on a major Henry-Gio cliffhanger, and I'm a little bummed that Henry will simply be gone without any follow-up. I'm excited to see more realistic-looking locations for the show's Manhattan and Queens scenes, though. The sets and wardrobe for Ugly Betty are always so vivid, and the exterior views should follow suit.
