Where The Girls Are on TV: Evan Rachel Wood, Summer Glau, Joss Whedon, Eliza Dushku

Where The Girls Are on TV: Evan Rachel Wood, Summer Glau, Joss Whedon, Eliza Dushku

On the Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Duel 2, the lesbians seem to be stirring up some trouble. Rumors are Summer Glau could be collaborating again with Joss Whedon on Dollhouse. Evan Rachel Wood will be playing the vampire Queen of Louisiana on True Blood. The new season of So You Think You Can Dance shows flexibility in more ways than one. Kristin Cavallari, Tila Tequila, and Lacey Schwimmer join the list of people who posed for some hot NO H8 photos.

With the 34,830,480 season finale of American Idol out of the way, Fox wasted no time in finding a just as entertaining filler for its open slot. So You Think You Can Dance premiered  last week with its first couple of episodes flying across the country for auditions for the show’s 5th season. Though not as popular as Idol, this competition is definitely more visually stimulating, not that Adam Lambert wasn’t a looker or anything. Though one of the judges got in some trouble with GLAAD for making some homophobic comments, I can’t stay mad at the show for delivering us some very hot (and flexible) talent. Like her! 

She’s definitely someone to watch.

Though still in the preliminary and boring rounds of the show, the auditions are showing some promise of potential hotties that could be season favorites. Though the majority of the season revolves around how well dancers due with different partners in a very heterosexual girl/boy way, the show is worth sticking with to watch the final, where the final four, two boys and two girls get to dance with one another. I’ve been watching religiously each season just to see what they’ll think of next. Who knows, maybe one of the choreographers will get some inspiration from The L Word episode with the dance marathon. 

Girl on girl tango perhaps? Keep your fingers crossed.

Now last week, I talked about some upcoming shows on our beloved Showtime. Another show that will save you from summer insanity is True Blood, returning for its second season on HBO in June. If you have no idea what True Blood is about, all you need to know is that in this alternate universe, some smarty came up with the marvelous invention of synthetic blood, and overnight these scary seducers of the night are harmless domesticated fellow citizens with oversized canines. Though they’ve promised to keep their mouths to themselves, the town can’t help but be wary of these bloodsuckers. Check it this very interesting promo image. 

Now there’s something very interesting about vampires that I have yet to figure out. It seems that vampires are connected to lesbians. Either that or lesbians absolutely love vampires. What is it about them? Is it that whole dark, and mysterious seductress thing? The fact that they always know how to make black look good with the right shade of red on their lips? Perhaps lesbians just like a girl that can bite? Don’t get me wrong, I am in no way complaining here. In fact, I’ll be the first to watch because the scoop is Evan Rachel Wood, who’s last major TV gig was on Once and Again as newfound lesbian Jessie, will be playing the vampire Queen of Louisiana. 

 

 

Perhaps she’ll set her sights on the show’s star Sookie (played by Anna Paquin) to sink her teeth into, in more ways than one.

Unfortunately, one of the shows that didn’t survive this season’s cuts was The Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles, starring Lena Heady, aka the "Flower Lady" in Imagine Me and You. The show, which aired on the horrible Friday night time-slot, lasted two seasons, and gained a strong cult following, but wasn’t enough to stick around. Perhaps the only good news to come from this is that rising hottie Summer Glau won’t be leaving the TV screen just yet. Rumors are Glau could be working collaborating again with Joss Whedon on Dollhouse. Here’s what he told Entertainment Weekly about the rumor.

“If anybody thinks (bringing Summer onto Dollhouse) hasn’t occurred to me already then they have not met me,” Joss says. “I mentioned it to her before (SCC) was canceled. I was like, ‘You know, we should get you in the ‘house.’ But first we have to come up with something that works.”“Summer would be perfect to play an active, but she’s done that a lot,” he says. “I’d rather see her play someone who talks too much. The most fun I have is when I get somebody who’s good and comfortable at doing something, and then I make them do something else. Summer said to me, ‘I would like to play a normal girl before I die of extreme old age.’”

 

 

Though this is an amazing idea, I fear that Joss overlooked one thing. Seeing Summer alongside Eliza Dushku may just make our television sets explode due to extreme hotness, hell, let’s risk it.

Also this week on the Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Duel 2, the lesbians seem to be stirring up some trouble as Rachel’s former flame Aneesa confronts her about their past, and Rachel’s lack of acknowledgement that they ever had a history or that they were ever close, but Rachel seems to not be interested in dragging out their past, especially since she and Jenn are beginning to blossom, and the cameras catch a quick shot of it. 

However, a scorned Aneesa can’t help but listen in on some heart to heart conversation, and cause some trouble every chance she gets. For the challenge, Rachel again proves to be Alpha Female, winning immunity, and the opportunity to save Jenn from elimination. Though she makes the strategic move to really protect Jenn from being a target, and with Murphy’s law set into motion, Jenn is chosen for the duel. Though she’s no stranger to the elimination challenge, Diem upsets and stuns the crowd by winning. A tear-stricken Jenn hugs Rachel goodbye, and both profess their love for each other.

Though in her interview Rachel says that a romance after the show between them is unlikely, Jenn leaves with her last words, “Leaving the Duel sucks, but leaving Rachel sucks even more.”

2 lesbians down, 2 to go.

Also, earlier this week, some of TV’s finest and hottest girls also took time off the screen to show their support for equal rights. From the likes of Dancing with the Stars’ Lacey Shwimmer, to Dollhouse’s Eliza Dushku, to the always looking for love self-proclaimed girl-next-door Tila Tequila, many celebrities donned white to take a stand against the upholding of Proposition 8 in California. They’re hot, talented, and down for the cause. Check some of them out!
