As you know, Ugly Betty hasn't shied away from guest stars who have hit a few bumps in the road.

Nikki Blonsky, in need of a little image rehab since she and her dad tangled with an America's Next Top Model contestant at a Turks and Caicos airport, was busy filming an upcoming guest spot on the ABC comedy Tuesday in New York, E! News has confirmed.

This will be the first prime-time TV appearance for the Hairspray star, who turns 20 on Sunday.

Blonsky reportedly plays an assistant over at Mode rival Elle magazine who befriends Betty but seems to have ulterior motives.

The Long Island native will have to come clean, however, on Dec. 1, when she's due in court to answer to charges of common assault and actual bodily harm for allegedly roughing up ANTM also-ran Bianca Golden July 29 at Turks and Caicos' Providenciales International Airport.
