Ugly Betty La Fea

Philippine television has done it again; produced another teleseries copied from adapted from foreign television. I Love Betty La Fea is the new comedy series recently aired on ABS-CBN network starring Bea Alonzo as Betty.

According to, it took 2 hours to transform Bea Alonzo to  a geeky and ugly look of  Betty. DUH! Why did they pick a pretty girl in the first place?

There’s a reason why the beautiful Bea Alonzo was picked for the role. Just knowing that undeneath Betty’s face is a lovely young lady will trick will inspire the viewers to watch the show. For the people who are not aware of the plot may think that Betty may somehow transform into a beautiful face of  Bea Alonzo (you know, the female version of the The Frog Prince). I am sorry to disappoint you guys.

Before ABS-CBN copied adapted the series from the Colombian Telenovela Yo Soy Betty La FeaABC (American Broadcasting Company, aka Disney) launched their version first in 2006 entitled Ugly Betty. It was a big hit and is still is. A fresh face America Ferrera starred the series as Betty Suarez. She is not as pretty as Bea Alonzo but she certainly carried the role well. Hopefully Bea Alonzo will be able to match if not surpass  America Ferrera‘s Betty charisma.

I don’t know how long  it took to transform America Ferrera ‘s face to Betty Suarez but I am pretty sure it didn’t take as long as Bea Alonzo’s transformation to Betty La Fea .








 Here’s the trailer of the Philippine version of Betty La Fea.

    Bea Alonzo is prettier than America Ferrera. I am not an Ugly Betty Fan but I like America Ferrera. She has a new movie Under the Same Moon (La Misma Luna) and it looks good.

    What’s with you? Wala ka na bang magawa kundi mang insulto ng mga gawa ng Pilipino?? Ano bang sense ng buhay mo? Ano napapala mo sa ginagawa mong ganyan? Un din namang UGLY BETTY ay kinopya rin di ba? So pareho lang un.. At licensed naman na kopyahin yan kasi nagpaalam naman sa Producers ng betty La Fea eh.. Kaya walang problema dun.. Atsaka hindi panget c America Ferrera.. baka ikaw pa siguro.. Ngayon, kung hindi mo naiintindihan mga sinabi ko, problema mo na yun!

    @ PINOY

    Bakit hindi mo i ingles yung concern mo? Takot ka ba na baka mabasa nang iba? O hindi ka marunong mag ingles?

    Agree ako sayo na legal yung version natin pero totoo naman na kopya talaga. Bakit ba kailangan tayong mangopya?

    Dahil nagsasabi lang nang totoo ang sumulat nang article na ito hindi ibig sabihin na nang insulto siya sa mga pinoy. Truth hurts my dear.

    Nakakaintindi ka ba nang English? Ni minsan hindi sinabi nang author na panget si America Ferrera. Ang sinabi lang nya “not as pretty as” Bea Alonzo. Totoo naman di ba?

    Hay naku, Pinoy talaga hindi makaktake sa katotohanan. In denial pa rin. Pilipino po ako pero hindi po makitid ang utak ko kagaya mo, PINOY.

    All About Asia, gusto ko yung blog mo. Nakakaaliw at very informative.

    First off all why complain if the filipinos copied? americans copied of mexicans first, well whatever everyone knows creativity is scarce in the states while ignorance reigns.

    One thing I would like to say is always that car insurance
    cancellations is a dreadful experience and if you’re doing the appropriate things like a driver you simply won’t get one.
    Many people do obtain notice that they are officially dropped
    by the insurance company and many have to fight to get added insurance after
    the cancellation. Low-priced auto insurance rates usually are hard
    to get after the cancellation. Having the main reasons regarding auto insurance
    cancellation can help owners prevent getting rid of in one of the most crucial privileges out there.
    Thanks for the concepts shared via your blog.

    I think what you posted was very logical. However, think on
    this, suppose you added a little information?
    I am not suggesting your content isn’t good., but what if you added something that makes people want more? I mean Ugly Betty La Fea ALL ABOUT ASIA is a little vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how
    they write news headlines to grab people to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people excited about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues? A number of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

    Thanks for your concepts. One thing I’ve noticed is banks and also financial institutions are aware of the spending routines of consumers plus understand that a lot of people max out and about their cards around the holiday seasons. They correctly take advantage of this kind of fact and then start flooding your current inbox along with snail-mail box using hundreds of no-interest APR credit cards offers just after the holiday season ends. Knowing that if you are like 98% of all American public, you’ll jump at the possible opportunity to consolidate card debt and move
    balances towards 0 interest rates credit cards.
