Ugly Betty's scene-stealing bad girl Becki Newton talks to TV Guide about shaking her booty, stalking Tim Gunn and finding love. (ABC's Ugly Betty airs Thursdays at 8 pm/ET.)
TV Guide: How do you get in touch with your inner vixen to play Amanda? Becki Newton: I think of the girls I used to meet at New York City auditions. Girls have a great way of sizing each other up with a look that can debilitate everyone. I was usually the victim of that. I've always been more the Betty than the Amanda.

Chris Diamantopoulos took some razzing for his portrayal of Robin Williams in NBC's Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of Mork & Mindy (an encore airs tonight at 8 pm/ET). The film got Jeered by TV Guide for "reducing Robin Williams to a perky yet sad clown." As for Williams himself, he claims he didn't even bother to watch. "It's weird," the comic cracks. "If they're going to make a bad movie about your life, then [you should] wait for the Cartoon Network [version]."
Of course, the film's leading man denies that his portrayal is just a gratuitous rehash of Williams' alleged diva behavior and drug problems during the classic sitcom
