Accidentally on Purpose's Ashley Jensen Talks Ugly Betty Return

Accidentally On Purpose, Ashley Jensen Art Streiber/CBS

Now that the hilarious Ashley Jensen is Jenna Elfman's sidekick on CBS' new Accidentally on Purpose (a pilot that made all of team WWK laugh out loud repeatedly), does that mean her Ugly Betty days are over?

We hope not, and so does she. "There has been talk of it," the Scottish funnylady told us at the CBS TCA party last night. "I didn't die in it. I wasn't run over by a tractor, and I didn't fall down an elevator shaft.

"It has been talked about," said Ashley, who plays Olivia on Accidentally, about a TV critic (Jenna) who gets knocked up by a much younger man. "It's very feasible that she could come back at some point. Henry came back at the end of season three, so maybe at the end of season four. I'd love to do it. I'd love to come back again. I'd be great. It's all worked out rather well because I simply couldn't be flying back to New York at the moment, what with my condition [being pregnant]."

If she could play show writer for a day, here's how she would script her character (Christina McKinney, the seamstress) back into the show: "I would like to see her come back hugely successful, and she gives Wilhelmina [Vanessa Williams] a run for her money. Maybe she's got her own design line, or something, and Wilhelmina needs her design line, so Wilhelmina has to bow down, sort of beg Christina. That's feasible isn't it?"

We think it is!

What do you think of Ashley's idea? Are you excited for Accidentally on Purpose? The comments are awaiting your arrival.
