An unattractive young woman named Betty Suarez receives a job at Mode magazine after the owner of Meade Publications, Bradford Meade, catches his son, Daniel, in flagrante delicto with an assistant. Following the tragic death of the former editor Faye Summers, Daniel has assumed the role of editor-in-chief at Mode. At home, Betty has been dumped by Walter, who says he loves Gina Gambarro-- but Betty has a strong family unit with her father, sister Hilda, and nephew Justin to support her. In her professional life, Betty is a misfit at Mode. Treated with contempt because she is unfashionable, not thin and not considered to be attractive, Betty, however, does produce good ideas for the up coming photo shoot but Daniel ignores them. In an attempt to make her quit, Daniel torments Betty by asking her to stand-in as a model at the shoot. When Betty actually arrives on set wearing the ill-fitting clothes, poses for photos, and is mocked by all present, she leaves the set. Daniel follows ... Written by Missy

Why Should She?
21 January 2007 | by roshambo187See all my reviews

Asking America Ferrer to stop being Hispanic or stop making a big deal of it is like asking Brad Pitt to stop being White. How many successful Latinas are in Hollywood in comparison to Whites? Let Latinos have their time to be proud about Ms. Ferrer's accomplishments and stop trying to make everyone conform. Latinos have different ways than Whites, than Blacks, than Asians and instead of judging them and asking them to be like the dominant culture, you should celebrate the differences, because there are differences that set us apart. It doesn't mean they are better or worse---just different and that is what is going to finally add true diversity to Hollywood.
