Naomi Campbell stars in 'Ugly Betty' season finale

Naomi Campbell is getting ‘‘Ugly.’’

The supermodel will appear in the second season finale of ABC’s ‘‘Ugly Betty,’’ according to actress Becki Newton.

‘‘She’s going to be in our last episode, which is exciting,’’ Newton said at the launch party for the new Sunglass Hut store design. ‘‘I’ve personally requested that I don’t stand next to her because Amanda would not like to be seen with such a tall, pretty person.’’

Newtown, who stars as sassy receptionist Amanda Sommers on ‘‘Ugly Betty,’’ isn’t sure what character Campbell will play or if she’ll actually have scenes with the 37-year-old supermodel, who was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of assaulting an officer after police were called to a disturbance at Heathrow Airport in London.

Campbell was originally announced as a guest star last year but didn’t appear in the first season or the beginning of the second season, which was cut short because of the writers’ strike. Other ‘‘Ugly Betty’’ guest stars have included Victoria Beckham and Gene Simmons, who played himself and was revealed to be Amanda’s father. Newton said Simmons will reprise his role in an upcoming episode.

ABC had previously announced the series will return for a third season.
