Ask Stacy – Why did Ashley Jenson leave ‘Ugly Betty’?

DEAR STACY: Why is Ashley Jenson leaving “Ugly Betty”? – Liz T., Clinton, IA
DEAR LIZ: The Scottish actress left “Betty” to join Jenna Elfman’s “Accidentally on Purpose” pilot for CBS — and the comedy has been picked up for a fall debut. There was speculation that Jenson would leave her role as designer Christina on “Betty” when she was the only cast member not to move from L.A. to New York when the show relocated. Executive producer Silvio Horta released a statement making it clear, “she is still a member of the ‘Ugly Betty’ family. So don’t be surprised if you see Christina pop back up in Betty’s life.”
