It's no news that Lindsay Lohan was supposed to join Ugly Betty for a guest-starring turn, but what most disappoints Tony Plana about the cameo that may never happen is that he won't get to interact with the starlet. "She was going to be somewhat involved in [Ignacio's] world, which I like," he told TV Guide at the Body Language Sportswear store opening in Los Angeles. "The predictable thing would be to have her involved in the fashion world.... So I was happy. I think it would have given her a whole different kind of thing to play."

Plana thinks the writers will have to drop such guest stars and subplots to efficiently wrap up Season 3, but regarding La Lohan's guest gig, one should not lose hope just yet. "As far as I know," he says, "we're still talking to her." - Carita Rizzo
