As a rule, we don’t suggest this – but when your boss is at hot as Eric Mabius, we get why Betty might find him hard to resist!

Wow, we didn’t see this one coming. Who would have ever predicted that ‘(Not So) Ugly Betty’ Suarez would romance her boss, Mode Magazine Editor-in-Chief Daniel Meade?

Racy! Ugly Betty creator Silvio Horta, confirmed that an inter-office romance is definitely a possibility for America Ferrara and Eric Mabius’ characters. “We’ve been batting around the idea,” he told Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello. “It is not outside the realm of possibility that something [could] happen, but we’re not sure yet.”

The uncertainty stems from Betty’s shaky future. Will the show last another season? If so, a Betty/Daniel romance might actually occur. But if the show – which debuts in its new timeslot tonight, Jan. 6 – gets the axe after its fourth season, Horta wants to find a more appropriate (and less controversial) ending for his hit ABC series.

If it does happen, do you think Betty dating her boss is a good idea? Fill us in on your real-life experiences here!
