Ugly Betty Actor Kills Mother With A Samurai Sword While Screaming Biblical Passages

Michael Brea

And now for the most awful post we have ever written. Michael L. Brea, an actor who has appeared on Ugly Betty and in the film Step Up 3D, reportedly murdered his mother with a samurai sword while screaming passages from the Bible. The slaying took place early this morning around 2 AM in his Brooklyn apartment. Neighbors heard the sounds of screaming and frantic footsteps, and police were summoned soon after.

“I heard him chasing her [his mother] through the house and just saying a bunch of [Bible] passages like, ‘Repent, Repent, Repent,’” a neighbor told WPIX 11 News. “I heard him chasing her through the house, and [then] I heard a loud scream. So I had my father call the cops.”

“I had just dozed off to go to sleep and then I woke up to somebody screaming,” said another resident. “It sounded like lady’s voice and after I while I just didn’t hear the woman’s voice again.”

The police found the apartment “extremely bloody,” and discovered Brea’s 55-year-old mother Yannick lying on the floor, bleeding from multiple stab wounds. One source claims that she was decapitated. Medical services say that she was dead on the scene. Authorities had to tazer the young actor before bringing him to Kings County Hospital for psychiatric evaluation. His condition is described as “emotionally disturbed.”

No charges have yet been filed, and no explanation why the horrific crime took place. But more details to come.

America Ferrera Hates Blake Lively

Apparently we aren’t the only ones who think Gossip Girl is overrated - Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 co-stars Blake Lively and America Ferrera appeared together on Good Day LA to plug their movie, and Blake got a little gushy while talking up her hit show, the teen sex-fest Gossip Girl. While she rattles on, America picks at her hands before rolling her eyes and throwing down a serious death stare at Blake. Our new hero America – who’s the star of her own hit, Ugly Betty - belongs on a Wheaties box for her moves. Clip above.
