Where the Girls are on TV: Eliza Dushku, Sara Ramirez, Ginnifer Goodwin

It's girls, girls, girls on TV these days, including the hot-ass sisterwives of Big Love, Ginnifer Goodwin, Chloe Sevigny and Jeanne Tripplehorn. Sara Ramirez's Callie prays for guidance on how to handle a major girl crush on Jessica Capshaw's Arizona on Grey's, Eliza Dushku is one smokin' robotic bad-ass on Dollhouse and Daytime goes way Lesbo with All My Children's groundbreaking lesbian wedding and Guiding Light's developing Oliva / Natalia storyline.

Thanks to Lauren Incognito, your television news this past week will be brought to you by yours truly again. Sorry, but Incognito apparently is spending a lot of time lately with that baby of hers. I see where her priorities are! And being that I am alone, childless and pathetic -- I suppose I am the perfect backup to let you in on the T.V girl gossip, being that I don't really have a life and all.

Lets begin with Big Love, I just watched the Henricksons last night and it's fresh in my fantasies, I mean -- my mind. Roman Grant (Harry Dean Stanton) is out of jail and free on bail as Cathy's twin let him off the hook with her inability to remember how old she was when she was sleeping with him. Oops, I hate when that happens. Meanwhile, Bill (Bill Paxton) was attempting to turn Roman's own son Alby (Matt Ross) against him.

Nikki (Chloe Sevigny) finally strapped on some balls and pushed daddy-dearest down the courthouse stairs, no one seemed to have noticed or cared. Strange writing, but let's move on. Barbara (Jeanne Tripplehorn) may finally get her wish after Bill gave an impromptu marriage proposal to Ana (Branka Katic) in front off his mother and a newly blonde Margene (Ginnifer Goodwin), who seemed to be in the midst of a mid-life crisis of her own. Sarah (Amanda Seyfried) is out looking for the perfect parents for her unborn child. She interviews a very gay man with issues (think Ted Haggard) and his loving and supportive wife (think Ted Haggard's loving and supportive wife). Moving on...

This week Grey's Anatomy didn't have too much to offer us in the lezzie ladies department, but perhaps we are getting closer. Dr. Torres (Sara Ramirez) shared her feelings for Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) with Addison. Torres mentioned something about Robbins being "hot and funny." It reminded me slightly of second grade recess. Admittedly, I sort of fell asleep during it all. I've had chicks move in and out of my apartment quicker than Grey's lesbian storylines.

Alas, we play the waiting game, but I have to give applause to ABC for keeping up with the pending lesbian stories. I even apologize for having called them Slay's Anatomy after they abruptly chopped off Brooke Smith's character Dr. Erica Hahn with no explanation. I give you an official apology -- sorry, y'all.

In more, slow moving storyline news, The Guiding Light is attempting to catch up. Or so we think. Recently as Emma made cute little Valentine treats at the table, mommy Olivia Spencer (Crystal Chapell) joined her in the craft making after learning Natalia Rivera (Jessica Leccia) was going out of town with Frank. Then the phone call happened. Olivia's lost and wanted-to-be-forgotten love, Phillip, is back. Olivia immediately flies into a panic and so did I, but not for the same reasons.

The dialogue over homophobia, secrets and lies is a good thing, however. My hat is off to CBS. This network continues to be a good outlet for lesbians. It's just that the flow of lesbian relationship always seems to be in slow motion. Although the pace may be unrealistic in my world, I will still hold on to this soap opera, even if my Tivo keeps suggesting 7th Heaven reruns due to my on-going Guiding Light season pass. I am that hopeful that the future path of Springfield will be gay and merry.

Beautiful news on the Fox front as Dollhouse made its series premiere last week. The new series by sci-fi genius, Joss Whedon, has been getting mixed reviews, but we all agree on one thing --Eliza Dushku is one hot bitch.

And not that anyone gives a rat's ass, but in my earlier acting days, my only claim to fame was that I was up against Dushku for the role of "Faith" in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I know it's all hearsay, but admittedly my career sunk shortly after and now I get to write about her...lucky me.

The Dollhouse is an undercover agency that takes young, hot and impressionable guys and gals and turns them into undercover "actives", where these dolls now have every skill, experience and ability to be and do anything. The agency wipes clean their memories and personalities so they can become undercover operatives. But really, is this the reason we are watching?

The tattoo-clad hottie Dushku plays Echo, a doll in all sense of the word. She truly is a phenomenal actress and although this first episode appropriately titled "Ghost", had its ups and downs, it does leave us rooting for our heroine. In the first episode, Echo tries to bring home the kidnapped daughter of a wealthy client. In the meantime, FBI agent Paul Ballard (Battlestar Gallactica's Tahmoh Penikett) attempts to take down the illegal operation. That part was a bit drab and could've used some scissors in the editing room, but did I mention how hot Dushku is?

The head of the dolls, Adelle DeWitt (Olivia Williams) plays the head "warden" while Dr. Claire Saunders (Amy Acker) is a pseudo-nanny for the dolls.  "Actives" Sierra and November are played by semi-newbies Dichen Lachman and Miracle Laurie. Topher Brink (Fran Kranz) is the dolls' computer genius. And rounding out this cool cast is morally conscious bodyguard Boyd Langton played by 24 alum Harry J. Lennix. Dushku also doubles as executive producer and has one foot in the writer's lab. You go girl!

I don't think I can rest well this week if I don't mention The Bachelor. Are these girls on the show getting younger or am I just getting older? It's a fight to the end with three girls left and only one can win Jason's heart. Melissa is super cute, Jillian is super smart and Molly is super annoying. But not to mention my super stupid real-life friend "vision board girl" who was slapped off the show on night one. I really need to re-think the people I hang out with.

Last, but certainly not least, All My Children aired the very first daytime lesbian wedding. Hooray! The cute-as-can-be Reese Williams (Tamara Braun) wed sweetheart Bianca Montgomery (Eden Riegel) in an official wedding ceremony. Both ladies wore designer gowns and cried as they declared their love for each other. I am super happy and ABC seriously rocks!
