America Ferrera and Blake Lively recently paid a visit to Good Day LA to discuss their new movie, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.

But the conversation promptly switched to Gossip Girl, Lively's TV show and the recent subject of massive amounts of... well, gossip.

Gossip Girl has become so overexposed these days (maybe you've noticed), even America Ferrera can't hide her apparent disdain for it.

Here's an excerpt of it on The Soup. Watch America's expression!

Ugly Betty star America Ferrera is not engaged to her long-time boyfriend, filmmaker Ryan Piers Williams, her rep tells celebrity news magazines.

Online reports speculated she was engaged because the actress, 24, wore what looked like an engagement ring on the New York set of Ugly Betty.

Turns out, the ring could be part of a plot twist on show. Or maybe a gift from future Ugly Betty guest star Lindsay Lohan. Really, who knows!?

America Ferrera and Ryan Piers Williams: Just boyfriend-girlfriend.

Ryan Piers Williams, 26, is an aspiring director. They first met at University of Southern California, pre-Betty days, when he cast her in his student film.

Engagement or not, they are said to be house hunting (or were, at least) have a golden retriever named Buddy. That's good at least.

The actress - who has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president - will be starring in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, out in August.

Well, about half of it anyway. Which is pretty solid.

One young voter who has been squarely in the camp of Hillary Rodham Clinton throughout the 2008 presidential race is Ugly Betty star America Ferrera, 23.

What's Up Hillary?

The actress, a native Californian of Honduran descent, has been a vocal supporter of the former First Lady and attended a seminar called Breaking Barriers: Women in Politics at Bryn Mawr College in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, Saturday.

The Ugly Betty star, who also attended two other campaign events Saturday, was seen travelling in New York with boyfriend Ryan Piers Williams on Friday.

Hillary Clinton narrowly trails Illinois Sen. Barack Obama in the tight race for the Democratic presidential nomination - and celebrity endorsements - but is closing the gap in both departments. The Pennsylvania primary is April 22.

Someone sure finds Ugly Betty pretty.

With the Emmy Awards coming up, American Ferrera is spending her free time house hunting with longtime boyfriend, Ryan Piers Williams.

"They're excited about it," a source told People magazine. "All that matters to them is that they are together and that they find somewhere private. They aren't one of those flashy couples."

Flashy couple? To whom could this person be referring, Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron?

Ferrera first met Williams, an aspiring director at University of Southern California, when he cast her in his student film. Together, they have a golden retriever named Buddy.

In other Ugly Betty news, meanwhile, take a look at Rebecca Romijn nude. She's cute.

The world of celebrity gossip is filled with lies and half-truths. Did Sheryl Crow really adopt a son? (Yes.)

Is Spencer Pratt the anti-Christ? (Most likely.)

Tony and Wife

Can Britney Spears sink any lower? (Stay tuned!)

Below, we comment on the validity of a few other Hollywood gossip rumors...

REPORT: Tony Parker won't see Eva Longoria nude until their wedding night.

Longoria's rep Liza Anderson tells Us Magazine that while the future wife did say in an interview that she planned to give up sex before her wedding, it was purely in jest. "It was a total joke!" Anderson explains. "She was just being playful."

REPORT: The smile on America Ferrera is insured for $10 Million.

The Ugly Betty star is a spokeswoman for Aquafresh's "Smiles for Success" program, which provides dental care for underprivileged women looking to break into the workforce. To protect their partnership, the company took a policy out the eventual Mrs. Ryan Piers Williams and her girlish grin with Lloyd's of London.

REPORT: Kim Kardashian and Haylie Duff are feuding via Myspace.

According to numerous gossip sources, Kardashian responded to an attempt by Haylie to bury the hatchet over past issues by calling the sister of Hilary Duff sister nasty names.

A rep for Kardashian says: "The page is a fake. Kim and Haylie are great friends and neither of them posted anything mean."

REPORT: Victoria Beckham's boobs have their own zip code.

This is true.

America Ferrera isn't just Ugly Betty.

She's also Popular Betty. The TV star is everywhere these days - including the cover of W magazine. Here are excerpts from that publication's interview with the actress:

America Ferrera and Ryan Piers Williams Pic

ON THE TABLOIDS ANNOUNCING THAT SHE AND BOYFRIEND RYAN PIERS WILLIAMS GOT ENGAGED…
"It's totally not true! And his mom called me and my sisters were calling me, and I was like, ‘Are you kidding? Did you not think I would tell you first?' And then I put out a statement that it wasn't true, and that became a whole news story. So now it's news when something doesn't happen? Like, news flash: California did not get hit by a hurricane today."

ON NOT BEING OFFERED LEADING ACTING ROLES DESPITE HER RECENT SUCCESSES…
"When it comes to envisioning an actor in a role that they haven't seen them in, people in this business can be a little uncreative. No one is willing to take a gamble…It's been more about developing my own material, finding roles that I would like to play and figuring out a way to get those things made."

ON TRYING TO ENJOY THE MOMENT…
"The hardest part of this year has been learning to enjoy it. It's almost like a full-time job reminding myself to live in the moment and not look for more, more, more…I see now that people who make movies, this world of creative geniuses that I grew up idolizing, are just normal people who wanted to do something and made it happen. Everything that's happened to me in the last year has only made me feel more like a normal person, more human, but in the most beautiful way."

* The Hollywood Gossip note: Certainly more beautiful than whatever nasty actions Olivia Mojica is involved in on her celebrity sex tape.

ON BEING HONDURAN AND GROWING UP IN A CAUCASION NEIGHBORHOOD…
"As early as second grade I remember feeling really different and isolated. I had the hugest crush on a boy, and my best friend had a crush on him, too. One day he said to me, ‘I like your best friend more because she's paler and she has freckles.' And it was right then that I began to feel like, Oh wow, I'm different."

* The Hollywood Gossip note: So is Sanjaya Malakar. And that's working out pretty well for him.

ON NOT FITTING IN WITH THE LATINO COMMUNITY…
"I mean, I grew up in the Valley. All my friends were white Jewish kids. So the Latino kids thought I was this white girl."

ON BEING APPROACHED BY SALMA HAYEK TO STAR AS UGLY BETTY… "Honestly I never saw myself doing TV, but Salma was so convincing. Salma is the kind of person who could sell you, like, a used stereo. She promised me that it would be done in the right way, and I just trusted her."

Move over Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky.

You've got some engaging company.

The New Ugly Betty

The very pretty star of Ugly Betty, America Ferrera, just announced that long-time boyfriend Ryan Piers Williams asked her to marry him.

And this would be a pretty lame post if she didn't say "yes."

The couple will now hope to stay together longer than previous pairings such as Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey.

Or Kim Kardashian and clothing.

We wish America and Ryan nothing but the best!

Forget that pesky war in Iraq. It's a good thing Congress is focusing on what's really important:

Such as America Ferrera.

The New Ugly Betty

The Ugly Betty star, already honored at the Golden Globes, was recognized by a attention-seeking, misguided Congresswomen this week.

Hilda L. Solis (D-Calif.) took to the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday to publicly salute Ferrera, 22, for her Globe win and for raising the profile of Latinos in popular culture.

"Madame Speaker, I rise today to congratulate America Ferrera for winning the Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy for her work in the ABC show Ugly Betty," Solis said.

It's a good thing she didn't come in second. No way Ferrera would be a role model in that case.

"I commend America and everyone involved in Ugly Betty for helping to break down stereotypes and provide a role model for young Latinas," Solis added.

Look, we're big fans of Ferrera and all, but is this really the best use of Congress' time? Will it weigh in on the Angelina Jolie/Ryan Seacrest feud next? What about showing its support for all Sadie Murray has been through?

Solis is serving her third term in the House. She represents California's 32nd Congressional District and needs to find a better way to assist her constituents.

Otherwise, look for Isaac Cohen to soon be lauded for being a gentleman.
