Romijn Mixes Biz with Pleasure

Oh, why oh why weren’t we paying better attention when Rebecca Romijn told us the identity of her character on “Ugly Betty”?

When we asked during a set visit what the name of her character was, she said “Alexis” with a twinkle in her eye. The blue blinded us to the fact that she was tipping us off about the fact that her character is Alex, the sex-changed, not really deceased brother of Daniel.

But no matter. We move on.

Rebecca’s fiance Jerry O’Connell, who stars in the NBC series “Crossing Jordan,” makes a guest appearance on “Ugly Betty.” Jerry plays Joel, a man Alexis meets while slumming in a sports bar with Wilhelmina (Vanessa Williams).
Sounds like fun.

    Good to hear Rebecca is showcasing her abundant “talent” on Ugly Betty (worst show since Temptation Island though) and even better to know that she has washed the Stamos off her…
