Exclusive: Cibrian Ditches Betty's Sis for 'Wife'

Betty_lThis certainly doesn’t bode well for Hilda’s romance with Coach Diaz on Ugly Betty.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Eddie Cibrian is heading to USA Network’s The Starter Wife for a three-episode arc. He’ll play a detective who investigates some strange goings-on in Molly’s (Debra Messing) life.

Starter Wife kicks off its first official season on Oct. 10; look for Cibrian to first appear around the eighth episode.

Getting back to the matter at hand, what does this mean for Cibrian’s role as Ana Ortiz’s hot new squeeze on Betty? As I reported last month, Cibrian was only committed to appear in four episodes this season. And Betty recently wrapped its fourth episode. And Cibrian’s now on a new show. And… do I have to spell it out for you?! Sheesh.
