'Ugly Betty' exclusive: Vanessa Williams' bro cast as Willie's twin!

It looks like Ugly Betty‘s new Wednesday timeslot is going to be a real drag for Wilhelmina Slater — but in a good way.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Vanessa Williams’ real-life bro, Chris Williams (a.k.a. Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s Crazy Eyez Killah!), will guest star in an early ’10 episode as Willie’s drag queen doppelganger, Wilhediva Hater.

Good, right? Wait, it gets better.

Here’s the set-up, per an Ugly insider: Willie gets tipped off that someone has been regularly impersonating her at a drag club and she tries to shut the act down. That is, until she realizes that faux Willie could come in handy by attending meetings and events on her behalf. As a result, “The two end up working together,” says my spy.

Two words: Gen. Ius.

In other news, today’s my first day back from vacay! Miss me?!

    Yes I missed you

    • Nick T

      I missed you too. I also missed good Betty eps. I just started back watching for the last four eps. They’ve been great. I gave up last year in the middle, then they moved it to Fri and I totally gave up. Glad I gave it another chance. Willie rules.

  • Jack

    This sounds great! BTW, how much we missed you will be in direct proportion to the amount of scoopage you deliver in this week’s column!

  • latinageek

    Shame on you for spoiling in the title, Ausiello. Not cool.

    • Charlie

      lol oh I’m sorry is this an episode of LOST

    • latinageek

      Ausiello has gotten better at not spoiling in titles and tweets and I appreciate it. I usually avoid even commercials for the TV shows I watch. There is nothing like a sweet surprise in a good show or movie.

  • Reena

    This sounds SO good I cant WAIT! LOVING UB THIS SEASON!

  • Jenn

    I think Ugly Betty has never been THIS GOOD. You took the words out of my mouth Ausiello – GENIOUS!! Those writers on Ugly Betty are fantastic

  • bunker

    This is such an underrated show. I loved it at first, then hated it, but after catching a few episodes this season I’m back on the bandwagon.
