Vanessa Williams & Rick Fox On-Screen Reunion Not So ‘Ugly’

Vanessa Williams as Wilhelmina Slater on ‘Ugly Betty’

Former Laker Rick Fox has joined the cast of “Ugly Betty” as a guest star, playing Vanessa Williams’ love interest. At Sunday night’s Emmy, the former couple revealed getting together on-screen was a blast.

“Oh we had a ball,” Williams told Access Hollywood. “We did [the scene] already. It was fun.”

Williams and Fox divorced in 2004 . Despite the split, working together on screen was easy thanks to the mature way they’ve gone about parenting 7-year-old Sasha Gabriella Fox, Rick told Access.

“We see each other a lot with our daughter that we share custody of and raise together. Things have gone well in divorce so we finally got it right. But it is, it is exciting to be working finally together,” Fox said.

So far, the scenes the former couple have shot haven’t involved any tonsil-hockey, but all that is about to change.

“I think that’s coming up this week,” Fox revealed. “This week we actually share I think, a few kisses.”

And Fox isn’t the only guest star for “Ugly Betty’s” second season. Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham is gearing up to film her slot.

Rebecca Romijn, who plays Alexis Meade also revealed more actors are coming in soon.

“We’ve been having some amazing guest stars,” she enthused. “We’ve got Marlo Thomas this week and Freddy Rodriguez!”
