"Betty" & Henry to Call it Quits?
JULY 5, 2007: I am going to write something that is going to make me very unpopular with many "Ugly Betty" fans. Christopher Gorham's Henry's and Betty's romance may be over and I am not that unhappy about that. Oh, Justin - that was just inappropriate!
TV Guide reported earlier this week that the producers of "Ugly Betty" are looking for a new love interest for Betty who is described as Gio, an ambitious, aggressive and lovable man who runs the sandwich cart at "Mode."
Since Gio is expected to be sticking around for an entire second season of the Golden Globe-winning comedy, we are either looking at Henry being completely out of the picture (I seriously doubt that) or we are getting a season-long love triangle that may result in the glorious reunion of Betty and Henry come May.
In any event, don't expect me to shed any tears if Henry happens to leave Mode fashionistas behind for good (he was on the plane out of New York with former girlfriend Charlie once he realized she was pregnant and it might be his child, although Betty - of course - learned it wasn't).
Yes, Christopher Gorham's (pictured above at the Ugly Betty April wrap party with wife Anel Lopez and co-star Michael Urie) Henry is super-cute in a dorky kind of way and he seems to be a perfect match for Betty.
And although I was happy to see the producers ditch the annoying Walter, "seems" just doesn't cut it for me. I feel as if the writers are forcing us to love Betty and Henry because they are "perfect for each other."
I have to say I have always found their on-and-off relationship a bit of a snoozefest (uh-oh - I guess you're all ready to post some hate comments now) and I am really happy to see that Betty may be getting someone who is a lovable character but one with a little more spunk. But hey - that's just me.
