Exclusive: Cibrian Ditches Betty's Sis for 'Wife'

Betty_lThis certainly doesn’t bode well for Hilda’s romance with Coach Diaz on Ugly Betty.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Eddie Cibrian is heading to USA Network’s The Starter Wife for a three-episode arc. He’ll play a detective who investigates some strange goings-on in Molly’s (Debra Messing) life.

Starter Wife kicks off its first official season on Oct. 10; look for Cibrian to first appear around the eighth episode.

Getting back to the matter at hand, what does this mean for Cibrian’s role as Ana Ortiz’s hot new squeeze on Betty? As I reported last month, Cibrian was only committed to appear in four episodes this season. And Betty recently wrapped its fourth episode. And Cibrian’s now on a new show. And… do I have to spell it out for you?! Sheesh.

    too bad. this was shaping up to be a hot romance!

    I’d love to know what’s going on with Betty and Gio … I have read that we’ll only see him in a couple of episodes. Why on earth did the Ugly Betty folks spend an entire season getting us (read: me) to warm up to Gio only to take him away? Say it ain’t so!

    The only thing bigger then our National Debt is Michael Ausiello’s ego. SHEESH.

    Aww… that screen cap is hot.

  • Yogi72

    Maybe now I’ll get my wish and get a Daniel and Hilda storyline!

  • Alan of Montreal

    thanks for posting my Eddie Cibrian pic of the day! mmmmm….

  • Artie

    Yogi72, Daniel and Hilda?! LOL. Keep dreaming. That’s one couple that’s definitely not meant to be.

  • Alex

    Aw! Pitty….
    It was looking promicing too (even though, personally I’m still mourning for Santos).

  • Ashley

    If they take BOTH Gio and the Coach away from us, I will be seriously upset. Why did they even bother building up either of these relationships at the end of last season if they were just going to take them away?

  • garyr

    If it’s only a 3-episode arc on USA, it doesn’t seem like that would interfere much with him appearing on Ugly Betty once those shows are completed.

  • Snarf

    Chances are good is charecter will return.

  • Danny

    Hilda definitely DOES NOT need Coach Diaz and his married butt. I am so glad that this storyline will be over soon!
    Seriously, some romances are meant to be, and others aren’t. And Hilda can do much better than get involved with a married dude.

  • bradywrites

    I think we’re all overlooking the most important question: How many of those episodes will feature Cibrian shirtless?

  • Sue

    Starter Wife sucks. Even Eddie Cibrian can’t get me to watch that show.

  • anne

    As long as Cibrian is somewhere on my TV where I can find him – I don’t care what show he is on.
