Update at 1:48 p.m. PT: Wow. Just, wow. I just got the most unbelievably phone call from Rebecca Romijn herself—can you stand it?!—thanking me for writing the story below. I'd like you to know, that in the many years I've been doing this job, Rebecca is officially the first celebrity ever to personally call and thank me for writing something. And I'm sorry, but that's just too cool not to share! Rebecca also mentioned that when she saw all the fall pilots, Betty was her favorite, and she's "unbelievably excited" to be joining the show. Yee! Can't wait. Now, while I continue gloating, here's the original story...

I heart Ugly Betty. And I heart Rebecca Romijn. So, needless to say, I am over the moon to share with you the exclusive scoop I just dug up: Rebecca Romijn is joining the cast of Ugly Betty! You heard me right. Joining the cast. As in, a series regular. As in, indefinitely.

(I'll pause while you freak out over the good news.)

According to sources connected to Betty and Rebecca (get used to hearing those names side by side!), the lovely Ms. Romijn will be arriving on the Betty set next week to begin her work on the ABC dramedy that has become an instant hit among anyone with even a smidge of decent taste.

As far as who Rebecca will be playing, don't read any further if you don't wanna know, but I have the goods!

According to sources, Rebecca will be playing the woman behind all the bandages! If you're a fan, you should know exactly who I am talking about. (And if you haven't been watching, you're gonna get on the Betty/Rebecca train pronto, right?)

By the way, some of you may remember that while I was on the Ugly Betty set a couple of weeks ago, Eric Mabius (Daniel Meade) teased to me that "the audience is in a store for a real shock. One of the women they introduce to try and tempt me away from Sofia [Salma Hayek] will be kind of amazing." When asked if he read with this new mystery woman during her audition, he let out a little chuckle and said, "No, trust me. This was an offer type situation."

Sure sounds like he's talking about our dear Rebecca, no? And if so, Salma, honey, you'd better watch your man. I mean, check out the photo above—yeowzah!
