LOS ANGELES – Victoria Beckham, now living in Los Angeles, is going Hollywood. Despite her recent denials about being interested in an acting career, Beckham, aka Posh Spice, is taking a first step by playing herself on an episode of the ABC comedy "Ugly Betty" this coming TV season.
In announcing the casting Thursday, the network said Beckham will play a celebrity bridesmaid at the wedding of Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa Williams) and publisher Bradford Meade (Alan Dale).
Posh moved from England to L.A. in July after her soccer-star husband, David, signed a five-year contract to play for the Galaxy of Major League Soccer.
At the time, she denied that she had aspirations for an acting career. She's slated to take part in a Spice Girls reunion tour beginning in December, and has launched her own fashion label called dVb and her own line of fragrances.
"Ugly Betty" returns for its second season on Sept. 27.
