Ugly Betty Rundown: Episode 7, "Nice Day for a Posh Wedding"

Ugly Betty Rundown: Episode 7, "Nice Day for a Posh Wedding"

Last night's Ugly Betty was a bit frustrating for me. I spent most of the episode literally yelling at Betty through my TV (I swear, she totally heard me), but it also had huge awww moments...and the funniest 20 seconds I've seen on TV in a while. The clip of that is after the jump (hint: it involved milkshakes). So Betty herself continues to bug me, but everyone else is great! Here are my thoughts:

  • There was so not enough Victoria Beckham considering how much she was hyped. That being said, why don't the Beckhams have an energy drink — it seems too fitting. "Beckhammmmm." Also, Posh would so actually wear her maid of honor dress out the night before the wedding if it was chic enough. Ha.
  • The Christina and her husband plot was sweet, and I'm glad we finally got to meet him. It was pretty heartbreaking, too. He's good Stuart, after all.

Okay, now it's time for spoilers. To read the rest of my thoughts (and my take on the shocking cliffhanger that was totally given away in the previews) just

  • Um, I'm sure I don't even need to ask if everyone else agrees, but Marc and Cliff are the best part of the show, right? Love them. Love the suit, loved the "break-up," loved the getting back together. "Beauty is pain, Cliff, and you are hurting me bad." So, did I mention that I really like them together? I hope Cliff is on the show forever.
  • Oh, Betty. Call me heartless, but I just can't get behind her this season. No matter what her dad did or said, there is no way that season one Betty would ever even consider not going to his nationalization ceremony. Thankfully (and I never thought I would say this) Henry was there to force her into it. I did get a little choked up when they made up. And Justin is hilarious.
  • So UB kinda glossed over the whole world finding out and barely caring that Amanda is Fey Sommers' daughter, right? Did I miss any drama about that? Or people even batting an eyelash? That confused me a little.
  • Anyone else still find it a little surreal seeing Vanessa Williams and Rick Fox together on screen? They're still broken up, right?
  • So, Daniel 100% has the right to be mad at and immediately fire Betty, but she so should have given him the full reason for lying. Methinks they'll make up next episode.
  • Was I the only one who saw Bradford Meade having a heart attack and thought, "Wow, Caleb Nicol cannot catch a break in the heart department?"
  • And last but certainly not least, the best thing ever. Amanda taking ahold of her moment to shine and serenading the crowd with Kelis' anthem "Milkshake," complete with organ music. Describing it does not do the magnificence justice, so watch it below. You won't regret it.

So, what did you think? Am I too hard on Betty? Do you think she immediately turned around and ran back to the church? Will Wilhelmina and Bradford ever get married? And are you enjoying Marc/Amanda/Cliff as much as I am? Amanda's milkshake is so better than mine.

I'm sorry..that was funny? If that's what is passing for funny these days I don't know if I'll ever laugh again (wah wah wahhhhh).

why the Betty hatred????? Molly, get over it! Betty/Henry/...They are fine...people find it annoying cause nobody likes the "white knight" to have a pregnant woman somewhere else while he woooos the "princess" least he's not lying about it!!!! Marc/Cliff....hate it....cliff is always sooo geeky and awkard...and yes, "normal"...but maybe too "normal".... Christina/Stuart....I think he's totally lying to her!!! Once he mentioned $$$$...

I really LOL'd throughout this show - all because of the supporting cast. Just like "Will and Grace." Jack and Karen always out did the main characters.

Marc/Amanda/Wille and now Cliff are my favorite part of the show. I would so watch a spin-off featuring these fab four. Although I want Marc and Cliff to have a real romance, not just this cutesie huggy storyline they have now. Kiss him already, Marc! Betty and Henry leave me bored to tears. I flip over to the NBC comedies when they come on the screen! I feel zero chemistry between those two, especially when you see how Betty and Daniel interact so effortlessly. I'm glad they're finally giving Christina a real storyline. I loved Ashley Jensen in "Extras" and can't wait to see her shine on "Betty."

I love the whole Marc and Cliff thing - I hope he stays on the show forever too. I also agree with you on not being able to get behind Betty this season. Her stories have all been kind of lame and the least interesting - especially compared to Marc and Cliff. I kind of want them to get rid of Henry sooner - it's getting a bit old. Also, why do they screw her in the guy department so badly - first that boyfriend from season one and now the whole Henry thing.

I'm with 'californiagirlx7' ... I don't think Stewart's as innocent as he claims.

I agree that Stuart has something up his sleeve. Love Cliff & Marc!! I need Amanda to have song and dance numbers more often, they are hilarious :)

I totally saw the Caleb thing too....BUT my first thought was when Caleb left the O.C. it was all downhill from there so we def. need Bradford to stay on UB!

I don't think stuart is telling the truth at all, i think he's just trying to get money out of her ....... also i think everyone knows amanda is fey sommers daughter because she turned up to that awards show thing and posed naked telling everyone.

I am not sure Christina's husband is dying really.... he came to NY for treatment which he could not get? No sense.... Anwyay, I do like cliff with Marc and agree that the previous for next week did kill any suspense (it appears they do get married while he is in the hospital).

I forgot to add that I really don't believe that Christina's husband is innocent. I think he needs more cash to pay for his medicine. Or maybe it really is drugs. Who knows?

This episode was hilarious. Marc and Amanda are the best part of the show (LOVE LOVE LOVED Amanda singing Milkshake), although I have to say I am in love with Henry even though most people don't care for him. Christopher Gorham is definitelya hottie, even with the glasses on. But I do think Betty is acting stupid considering Henry is going to leave her in a few months and she almost missed her father's citizenship ceremony for no good reason. And I disagree with most of you, I don't really like the Marc/Cliff relationship. I think its good that Marc likes someone who isn't "perfect" but the relationship seems weird to me (not because they're gay, I'm not homophobic or anything). Cliff just doesn't seem homosexual and it annoys me the way he babies Marc. I loved Posh's cameo, I thought it was going to be bad because of her acting skills but it was pretty funny. By the way, who else predicted that Bradford was going to get a heart attack? I definitely saw that coming. Another question: Does anyone else believe that Charlie is pretending that Henry is the father of her baby? Because it still doesn't seem like its true, didn't he just hear the news from Charlie? I think she could be lying....

"Good Stuart"?! As if! I'm so sure that this whole liver thing is all actually some scam where he's going to get back at Christina by tricking her into getting him $100K and then bouncing. I don't think he's sick at all.

I love this show. Mark and Cliff are so cute together. And there was not enough Posh given all the hype. I loved how Mark signed to Amanda the next line to "Milkshake" while seated in the pew!

I love Ugly Betty!!! Marc & Amanda are the real stars of this show, so hilarious! Amanda singing 'Milkshake' was pure genious! I hate it when Betty & Daniel argue, I hope its all worked out next episode. Hmmm me things the UB writers/producers are fans of The OC. Caleb Nichol/Bradford Meade having heart attacks. Hallelujah playing over Marissa's death & playing over Bradfords possible death?!?!? One last thing: I love Justin!!! :D

Loved everything but Betty. She's disposable on this show now. It's all about the supporting characters. They are way more fun to watch. I was thinking the same thing about Bradford/Caleb. And that same Hallelujah song was on The OC too I think when Ryan shot his brother? Maybe I'm wrong. Anyway, I love the actor that plays Bradford and I was thinking "If they kill him off AGAIN I'm going to have a coniption. Thankfully, it looks like he survived. Loved Posh, loved Vera.
