Yep, Heroes Went There

Back in June, we learned that Heroes had cast Days of our Lives actress Rachel Melvin as the college roommate of the cheerleader, Claire (Hayden Panettiere). In the press release that accompanied this announcement, the deviously lecherous publicity team at NBC promised that the actress would "share sleeping quarters (and maybe more) with Claire." Well, it looks like you can take the "maybe" out of that sentence, as this just-released still confirms our notion that the show's producers are so desperate to boost their show's sagging fortunes that they're willing to stoop to lipstick-lesbian plotlines as a means of generating publicity for the show (even if the actress in question isn't Melvin, but rather Madeline Zima). Lame! [Egotastic]
