Since the start of Ugly Betty, Betty has been Daniel Meade's faithful assistant, rescuing him from all manner of scrapes (even if she causes a few problems of her own along the way). But now that she's been promoted, who will lend Daniel a hand — especially as he's grieving?
Turns out, Meadow Soprano is headed to Mode. Jamie-Lynn Sigler, best known for her role on The Sopranos, will appear on the show in the Fall as Natalie, Daniel's new right-hand gal. The "sexy, spiritual, fun" Natalie will be a recurring character in the show's fourth season, starting with the season premiere.
This news gives me some hope for Betty's sake. I'd been afraid that the show would immediately find a way for her to be Daniel's assistant again, but it looks like she'll actually get to make a real go of things as a features editor. And this description of Natalie — specifically the "sexy" and the "spiritual" — makes me wonder if she'll be the one Daniel really leans on as he deals with Molly's loss.
Are you glad Daniel's getting a new assistant? And how do you think Sigler will do in the role?
