Ruffa Gutierrez has recently announced that she will be part of the upcoming teleserye Yo Soy Betty La Fea. This ABS-CBN soap opera is based on the Columbian telenovela that has spawned over 12 editions worldwide. The Philippine version of Betty La Fea will star Bea Alonzo as Betty while Ruffa plays the role of Daniella.
Aside from Bea Alonzo as Betty, Ruffa is the first big actress who was chosen to be part of the cast. The production team is still in the process of selecting the actor who will play the role of the leading man, Armando.
When Bea found out that Ruffa would join Yo Soy Betty La Fea, her reaction was simple, "She's perfect for the role! I love it!"
Ruffa's scenes with Bea are something to look forward especially since the Miss World second princess is tasked to play a "bida-kontrabida" role in this program. Ruffa is excited about Yo Soy Betty La Fea, which will seem like a fashion show since she will get to wear all her fabulous clothes, shoes, bags, and jewelries.
Coincidentally, when Ruffa joined the Ms. World competition in 1993, one of the judges was Vanessa Williams. The American actress who played Wilhelmina in the U.S. version Ugly Betty asked Ruffa, "What advice would you give ugly girls?"
Fifteen years later, Ruffa has been chosen to take part in the local version of Betty La Fea just like Ms. Williams.
