Betty la fea

Yo soy Betty, la fea , "Yo soy Betty, la fea" (1999) also known as simply Betty la fea (Betty the ugly), is a popular telenovela (soap opera) filmed in Colombia, written by Fernando Gaitan and produced between 1999 through 2001 by the Colombian network RCN (Radio Cadena Nacional). More than a dozen versions of the telenovela have been made in other countries. In the U.S., both the comedy-drama hit Ugly Betty and Televisa program La Fea Mas Bella are based on the Colombian soap opera.

Betty La Fea re-aired on TeleFutura in January 2009. Eight years after the telenovela's original run, the highly anticipated return of the original version of Yo Soy Betty, La Fea delivered impressive ratings for the network, attracting over one million viewers, more than half a million of which were adults 18-49. In addition, the premiere episode doubled and in some cases nearly tripled its prior audience among all key demographics.

Due to the success of re-runs aired in the United States, in June 2009, Yo Soy Betty, La Fea re-aired in Mexico on Canal de Las Estrellas.
