If you're not watching 10 Things I Hate About You yet, can we recommend you start soon? You won't want to be out of touch with who's who and what's what by the time we get to episode six, "You Can't Always Get What You Want," on Tues., Aug. 11. What happens then? Well, you can see the highlight in the E! Online exclusive scene shot above: Bianca (Meaghan Martin) kisses a girl!
But it's not what you think...
As far as we know, Bianca's still heterosexual (not that there's anything wrong with that), but she is trying to get attention/approval by producing a Web series, and her groundbreaking idea for creating a hit is to make out with another chick on camera.
Hey, the Internet-linked gay porn worked for Lafayette on True Blood. No reason it shouldn't do the same for baby-girl Bianca.
But seriously, can Bianca ever break the cycle of mean-girl abuse and become her own person? Well, maybe not right away, but Meaghan tells us, "It's really funny to watch Bianca go through her struggles. Chastity (Dana Davis) is very manipulative, and Chastity is realizing that Bianca will do anything to be popular—so Chastity's always testing Bianca's limits. Every episode it's something new. But at the same time, Bianca is sort of coming into her own person and realizing that she doesn't need Chastity. So I feel like, as time goes on, the tensions might get pretty intense."
Rock on, Bianca.
Oh, and speaking of girl-on-girl action, why do you think Mandela (Jolene Purdy) beat up the perv for Kat (Lindsey Shaw)? Was it an act of friendship, or does Mandela totally want to be Kat's girlfriend? Also, how lame is Kat going to feel about what she said to Patrick (Ethan Peck) once she learns the truth?!
