“Betty, la fea is one of the world’s most popular television shows and is considered the most famous Latin telenovela in history.
In 2002-2003, a telenovela called “Betty La Fea,” or Ugly Betty has warmed the hearts of many Filipinos after it was aired on ABS-CBN. The telenovela revolved around Beatriz or “Betty”, a kind-hearted woman who isn’t as pretty as other women, but still stole the heart of her handsome boss, Armando Mendoza Sáenz, played by Jorge Enrique Abello.
Yo soy Betty, la fea (“I am Betty, the Ugly one”) was a telenovela originally filmed in Colombia. The storyline was written by Fernando Gaitán and was produced from 25 October 1999 to 8 May 2001 by the Colombian network RCN (Radio Cadena Nacional).
Though Ana Maria Orozco looks unattractive in the show with her weird bangs, braces, and “ugly glasses”, she is incredibly stunning in real life. And today, after almost two decades, she still looks beautiful as ever.
Ana is still active in the entertainment industry in Colombia. This year, she reprised her role as Betty in its theater version called “Betty en Teatro” which began playing in March. Last June, she also starred in a show called “Gran Estreno”.
Ana is based in Bogotá, Colombia. She has two daughters named Lucrecia and Mia.
