Oh I definitely think we will. I want to know more about her and it will be interesting to see what happens since right now, we believe Betty is leaving. I'm curious how this is all going to be played out.

I wonder how things will be once she returns...and gets her old job back...I wonder if Amanda will be upset.

Oh I think Amanda will be very upset, depending on what happens with Betty.

I do too, that's why in the beginning I think they might have to work together on some things and not to parallel TDWP, but like with Emily/Andrea working together type of situation.

I think they're slowly starting to see there's more to the other, than what they thought in the beginning.

Oh definitely. I love how Amanda acts like she's not friend with Betty, but yet she's always sharing things with her and sitting with her.

I agree. She doesn't realize it, therefore it keeps happening.

I think Amanda deserves something more than just receptionist...not Betty's job, but something else.

Becki Newton Shares Her Ugly Betty Clothes Calls
by Damian J. Holbrook

Becki Newton gives mean girls a good name. As Amanda, the cruel but couture-blessed receptionist on ABC's Ugly Betty (Thursdays at 8 pm/ET), Newton has turned insults into an art form and taken a spot beside America Ferrera as the freshman hit's other breakout-star-to-be. Since she's so good at answering the phones, TV Guide decided to ring her up.

TV Guide: Amanda's definitely not above stealing the show, huh?
Becki Newton: Honestly, I thought that, on a weekly basis, I'd be at the round desk being mean to Betty whenever she walked in. The fact that I get to go into different rooms and harass other people? It's amazing.

TV Guide: On the Jan. 4 episode, the staff raids Christina's closet for free clothes. Have any of your Betty outfits made their way home?
Newton: In this episode, there is literally mortal combat over various accessories. Off camera, we don't get to keep the costumes, but our designer is so nice that if we ask to borrow something, as long as it makes it back right away, we're OK.

TV Guide: Would you ever risk life and limb for fashion?
Newton: Yes! I go to sample sales in New York and wear helmets. [The idea of] getting expensive things at a lower price turns women into crazy people. Ugly things become necessities. I [snagged] a coat I thought was incredible.... But I got home and looked like an extra from Pirates of the Caribbean.

TV Guide: Any plans for your break from Betty?
Newton: I'm off to Australia. My husband [Chris Diamantopoulos, The Unauthorized Story of Mork & Mindy] is there shooting a movie, and he's promised to take me to the zoo so I can pet a koala.

TV Guide: But that means spending half of your break on a plane!
Newton: I don't mind — it's first class!

Pick up the Jan. 7 double issue of TV Guide for a look at this year's Golden Globe nominees — Ugly Betty herself, America Ferrera, included!

Send your comments on this feature to letters@tvguide.com.
YAY!! She's so cute. I would love to pet a koala.

Stacy - Thanks.

Here's something else I thought was cool. Becki made Zap2it's Underrated list for 2006!!

Becki Newton
"Ugly Betty," ABC


You know her as: Amanda, Mode magazine's scheming receptionist

Why we like her: Newton gives her perfectly bitchy character surprising depth, making us believe that Amanda just might hide a vulnerable, somewhat nice and even smart side that Betty just has to free. Plus, she can binge like no other.

Where else you've seen her: She wrote and hosted the TBS celebrity interview show "Movie Junky." She's also appeared on "American Dreams," "Charmed," "Guiding Light" and in the sentimental "P.S." starring Laura Linney and Topher Grace.
