Posh Spice Gets "Ugly"
"Ugly Betty" people are in talks with Victoria Beckham's people trying to arrange the Spice-Girl-turned-fashion-designer's appearance on the award-winning ABC comedy.
Actor Eric Mabius, who plays fashion magazine Mode's editor-in-chief Daniel Meade in the hit series, let slip that bosses have made initial steps to secure Victoria - who is moving to America in July when husband David Beckham begins his contract with MLS soccer team Los Angeles Galaxy - for a cameo role.
The comedy set in the fashion business is known for notable guest and cameo appearances - Martha Stewart, Project Runway's Tim Gunn, American Idol runner-up Katherine McPhee, Rebecca Romijn's fiance Jerry O'Connell, Tony winners Patti LuPone and Kristin Chenoweth, Rebecca Gayheart ("Vanished'), Gina Gershon ("Melrose Place"), Lucy Liu ("Ally McBeal"), Cristian de la Fuente, Bond-girl Ivana Milicevic, Colombian "Betty" Angelica Vale, not to mention producer Salma Hayek, "Who's the Boss" star Judith Light, "Jake 2.0's" Christopher Gorham - the list goes on and on.
Mabius said: "Victoria is keen and so are we. We can see her fitting in as a cameo now she is about to be big in the US."
The "football wife" is currently working on a new jeans collection which she is expected to release under her own label DVB.
She stars in her own NBC prime-time special "Coming to America" which airs Monday, July 16 at 8/7c.
