(Newser) – Paparazzi pandemonium over Lindsay Lohan and girlfriend Samantha Ronson turned the New York City set of Ugly Betty into a “scary” and "intense” work environment, the actor who plays Justin tells the news arm of ABC, which airs the dramedy. "When Lindsay's on the set, it's mayhem," says co-star Ana Ortiz ("Hilda").

Lohan's "had some peaks and valleys, to say the least, but I think she's found somebody who's helping her through it," Ortiz says of Ronson. "They seem to have a really strong trust there."
