Casting News: Kathy Najimy on 'Ugly Betty'

kathy najimyKathy Najimy, who has recently appeared on 'Desperate Housewives' as Susan's high school enemy, is set to make a guest appearance on 'Ugly Betty.' What's interesting isn't that she's going to be there, it's why she's going to be there. Betty's finally getting the braces off!

Najimy plays Betty's orthodontist and the one responsible for getting all of that metal out of her mouth. I guess Betty decided to switch orthodontists rather than have to deal with the creepy advances of her old one, played by 'Modern Family''s Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

Najimy is scheduled to appear on the March 24 episode, and in addition to performing dental work, she's also going to act as Betty's guardian angel in an 'It's a Wonderful Life'-style scenario, in which Betty gets to see how different things would have been if she had never gotten braces in the first place.

It sounds like a fun episode to wind down the final season, but it's going to be weird seeing Betty without her signature metal. What do you think? Are you excited about the makeover, or should Ms. Suarez stay the way she is?

Indifferent about KN herself. But the show is all about the ad game, PR, and fashion so heck yeah give the Ugly One
the glam treatment. Otherwise the few fans left will be tormented for years wondering, what if.
Course a 1/2 hour flash of Wonderful Life action w/o the mouthful might satisfy and then end with her still attracting
magnets with her metal mouth (plastic probably).
Beats having her all preggy for a year with Daniel's baby.
Nice concept, esp the fun first season. Real departure for
mainstream time slot.
