Best. Jennifer Beals-ish. Day. Ever.

At the risk of over-reporting the J. Beals news of the day, I wanted to alert you Bette-ians that she will guest star on Law & Order (the episode “Charity Case”) this Friday. In classic “ripped from the headlines” fashion, Beals will play a soap opera star whose recent adoption of a child from Africa may be related to her husband’s murder.

I know I’m a dreamer, but I still long for the return of Elisabeth Röhm as lesbian Assistant D.A. Serena Southerlyn to Law & Order. How hot would it be to watch her and Beals tussle in a TV court of law? No one in their right mind would object!

Remember the bizarre episode in which Serena gets canned and comes out? Couldn’t they have just let her be a lesbian for a few more episodes before they fired her? I’m just sayin’…
