Ugly Betty is Ridiculous

No, I don't mean Betty herself, though I'm sure that must have been your initial thought. I think she is absolutely adorable and I am indeed a fan of the show. The thing I find ridiculous is the fact that it is produced by Salma Hayek, who is Mexican, yet Betty and her family who are supposed to be Mexican are all played by actors who aren't Mexican. It is so obvious that some of them are Puerto Rican. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but come on Salma! She also depicts Mexico as some dusty, third world country. Anyone who has been there knows better. Perhaps it's meant to add to the campiness of the show, but it is annoying nonetheless.
