“Ugly Betty” Lesbian Storyline Scrapped


Ugly Betty may be one of the most gay-friendliest shows on television, but when it comes to lesbian storylines — not so much.

A proposed story of a romantic relationship between Judith Light and Christine Baranski has been scrapped, according to a scoop fromThe NY Daily News’ Gatecrasher column.

“[ABC] put the kibosh on it,” series star Vanessa Williams confessed to Gatecrasher during an event in NYC on Wednesday.

“We thought about it, but ultimately decided to go in a direction that would set up more stories for next season,” says executive producer Silvio Horta.
