Barbara Eden courtesy Lifetime
On Army Wives, Barbara Eden will once again be married to a man in uniform. As first reported in the Ausiello Report vodcast, the I Dream of Jeannie star will play Victoria Grayson on the Aug. 12 episode. Along with her husband General Hugh Grayson (Robert Forster), she arrives on post to check up on things. No belly buttons this time around. It doesnt hurt that the Lifetime shows creator Katherine Fugate happens to be Edens niece. Fugate also has plans for an old friend from the days she was a writer on Xena: Warrior Princess. I want to write a two-parter for Renee O'Connor (Xenas bosom buddy Gabrielle) for the second season, Fugate says. Weve stayed friends; she gave me my baby shower. Reporting by Ileane Rudolph
Seeing Lucy Lawless brazenly snatch Halle Berry's role on Monday's Two and a Half Men reminded us how much we've missed the Aussie spitfire. Any chance she'll ever reprise her role as that sapphic icon, Xena, Warrior Princess?
"This whole idea of a Xena feature [film] keeps coming and going," Lawless tells TVGuide.com with a sigh. "I've checked out of worrying and wondering and speculating about it. People keep saying, 'It's on! It's off!' I did just this morning hear something about it from my husband [Robert G. Tapert], who was the executive producer on Xena.
"They'd better hurry up," she laughs. "Otherwise, Renee O'Connor [who played Xena's sidekick Gabrielle] and I will be too old — and nobody'll want to see us in short skirts before long. It's gonna be tragic."
While we're all await
