Adriana Lima to Sizzle on Ugly Betty

"Adriana has always been a huge fan of Ugly Betty and is thrilled for the opportunity to make a guest star appearance," says Lima's rep Liza Anderson.
On a future Betty (returning to ABC Sept. 25, 8 p.m. ET), Lima will be hired to pose on the pages of Mode's "sizzling hot issue" and will work with Betty Suarez (America Ferrera) on a cover story about the virtues of exotic fruit, including the fictional "tico berry," which the Vicoria's Secret model -- playing herself -- will credit as a booster to her sexy appearance.
But in a twist right out of Betty's madcap world, Lima, 27, will sport a broken finger from a real-life fall she suffered while on vacation in Croatia.
Lima starts filming next week. -- Bryan AlexanderFrancis Specker/Landov; BOB D'AMICO/ABC
