Betty in New York Telemundo: Plot summary, Full story, Casts, Teasers


Betty and Armando

Betty in New York premieres on Telemundo Africa by July 15th 2019. It is the story of Beatriz Aurora Rincón Lozano (played by Mexican actor, Elyfer Torres) a highly trained and intelligent economist (graduated with honors as an economist with a master in finance) who finds herself in the cut throat fashion industry (V &M Fashion) of new York after being rejected at various other jobs because of her physical appearance.

Despite the job being low grade in comparison to her qualifications, she accepts it, glad to be able to earn something and support her parents, as well as grow, interact with people from different climes and gain more experience.

She becomes the personal assistant to V&M Fashion company’s president Armando Mendoza (played by Erick Elias) who according to her interview with etonline is

“…so cute, and so handsome and he’s Latino and… Latinos are hot! He’s kind, and he’s been treating me like a human being ever since I came onboard”


Although she is ridiculed and humiliated on a daily basis for being completely lacking in style, Betty is more than willing to not be defeated in this ruthless war of appearances.

Her sworn enemies in the company include Patricia (the lady whose job she supposedly usurps) and Marcela Valencia (The fiancée of Armando Mendoza).



Despite the hostility, her support system include Nicolas and the ladies of El Pelotón (a kind of association of company secretaries).



Things however take a big turn for Betty when she finds herself crushing on her boss Armando despite him been engaged to Marcela. As the series progresses, Armando will also find himself in love with her much to his disbelief. The relationship will not be easy sailing as it has to undergo so much checks and acceptance.

Suffice to add here that Betty in Newyork is said to be an adaptation of another  1999 Colombian telenovela titled “Yo Soy Betty La Fea.” It later gave inspiration for the production of another American series “Ugly Betty” which stars America Ferrera as ugly Betty.

This most recent adaption of the ‘Ugly Betty’ theme explores more with a tinge of romance.
