Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. (February 22, 2008)



As we reported this week on the blog, Renee O’Connor will guest star in the upcoming season of the Lifetime drama Army Wives.

That probably wasn’t exactly news to you, though, if you watched our Power Premiere video in November. Renee teased us with more than just the prospect of seeing her on TV again.

She said she’ll be doing something “controversial” on the show and hinted that the role will be her “lesbian moment” of 2008. Army Wives creator (and Xena: Warrior Princess writer) Katherine Fugate confirmed, or at least encouraged, everyone’s suspicions at the recent Xena Convention in Burbank:

Fan: When will you be producing a gay character on Army Wives?

Katherine: You know, Renee is my best friend, and she’s going to be in a five- to six-episode story arc for me. Let’s just say you may see her in a position you wish you’d seen her in on Xena.

Fugate also noted that Renee’s character will be “sexual, sensual … the aggressor.” So I guess by controversial, Renee meant delightful.

I wonder whether the Army Band needs a pan flutist?

I also wonder whether there’s some way Army Wives can do a crossover with Battlestar Galactica — did you see that new promo photo of Lucy Lawless? I’d even sit through some Joxer scenes for that reunion.

Season 2 of Army Wives has just begun production, so it should premiere sometime this summer. Season 1 is available on iTunes and will likely be rebroadcast on Lifetime ahead of the premiere.


A few weeks ago, Karman waxed poetic about Girlicious: The Search for the Next Pussycat Doll — specifically, about out contestant Keisha. But the honeymoon was very brief: Keisha was eliminated this week. And maybe that’s for the best, because the other contestants didn’t seem to know what to do with her.

Yay for Keisha for being that out. But I was scared of dolls when I was a kid (specifically, the extra frilly, grotesquely long-eyelashed ones my mom kept foisting on me), and perhaps that was a good instinct — some of the other Pussycat wannabes are frightening me, too.

Hey, Keisha: Next year, try out for American Idol instead, will ya? I really just want to hear Simon Cowell say “Pussycat Doll” in that uniquely contemptuous way of his.
