During a down moment on the New York set of Ugly Betty, American Ferrera asked her co-star Judith Light a question that had been bugging her for years. Specifically, she wanted to know who actually was the boss on the popular 1980s series of the same name. Light fondly reflected on the series and explained to Ferrera that the title was a merely a metaphor for how we're the boss of our own destiny and fate. Ferrera nodded and asked Light if her character on the show was the boss of the character Tony Micelli. Light said, "Oh yeah. I mean, she signed his paycheck. She was the boss."
