Two great tastes that go great together! I'm talking of course of Lady Gaga's new video for her latest single, "G.U.Y.," featuring the almost cast of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Anyone who follows me knows I'm a little obsessed with Gaga and I'm a huge fan of TRHOBH, so this had me majorly lactating for sure. Notably absent is Brandi Glanville which makes sense as Gaga is enamored with Madame Lisa VanderPump, and mean girl Brandi was something less than cordial to her former mother figure and BFF this season. So, Lisa? Gaga's your new BFF? Vanderpump for the win! Also notably (or not so notably) missing is Jacqueline, er, Joyce - thank you, Jesus! (Who also makes an appearance in the video!) It looks like Mother Monster "one-upped" the ultimate one-upper. Paws up! At least we have Kim and Kyle Richards, Lisa, Yolanda, and the next supreme, Carlton. And, what would a Real Housewives brouhaha be without an appearance by Bravo ringleader and real referee Andy Cohen?

“Laws change, depending on who’s making them -- Cardassians one day, Federation the next. But, justice is justice.” -- Constable Odo
The quote above is pretty stunning. It’s not the kind of thing you would see in any other installment in the Star Trek franchise, unless it came out of the mouth of a villain or maybe a guest star whose opinion of Starfleet would change before the credits rolled. Here, it’s coming from a series regular -- the station’s security officer, Odo -- and he’s basically saying that the laws of our heroic utopia and a brutally oppressive regime, who regarded war crimes as an icebreaker, are the same. It’s a pretty important window into Odo, who, for the first two episodes, was something of an enigma. He’s center stage in “A Man Alone,” and we really start seeing the character that would become not only a fan favorite, but arguably the most important person across two quadrants.
I have a confession . . . I play with dolls (or I used to, rather). When I was a little boy, I fell in love with Barbie and anything pretty with long hair. My parents would let me have Wonder Woman, Batgirl, and Bionic woman dolls, but Barbie was for sissies and, therefore, not allowed. Fortunately, my mother gave me a younger sister who shared my obsession with dolls, and I got to play with all of her dolls (including Barbie, snap!) under the guise of sibling bonding. My childhood passion would turn into a lifelong love affair with the soulless, vapid totems of beauty. I try to limit my collection to Wonder Woman and anything "special" or rare. (If anyone has an extra limited edition Robert Tonner Zombie Boy doll laying around . . . )
