Vanessa Williams Furious Over 'Ugly Betty' Cancellation


Vanessa Williams


Responding to the announcement made by ABC executives that the fourth season of the series will be its last, Vanessa Williams says, 'I gotta be honest, we're devastated.'

Vanessa Williams is angry at U.S. TV bosses for axing her hit comedy "Ugly Betty", insisting the cast is "devastated" by the news. The U.S. version of the series turned Emmy winner America Ferrera into a household name after it debuted in 2006.

But ABC executives announced last month the series' current fourth season will be its last. And Williams is outraged programming bosses have scrapped the show just a year after uprooting the cast and crew from Los Angeles to film in New York. She also blames them for failing to give the show a regular time slot for fans to follow.

Williams explains, "I gotta be honest, we're devastated. We're sad, we're not ready for it to end. We just moved to New York. We just got on a roll. Our season this year has been the best we've ever had. But numbers and ratings (were a concern). A lot of people couldn't even find us. We switched - we were put on Thursday then taken off then (we were on) Fridays, now we're finally on Wednesday nights. But we're sad." The "Ugly Betty" season finale is set to air in the U.S. in April.
