Barbie has a new boyfriend, Blaine. I think he's gay. Then again, Barbie looks like a hooch in this picture, so maybe it's for the best.
Also, who decided to name an Australian boy Blaine? Is that a popular Australian name? Or is it just someone being weird? I doubt many people concur with me, but whenever I hear "Blaine," I think of the border crossing between Washington and Canada.
In any case, we'll have to see how this new boy-toy fares. I hope Mattel doesn't roll out a new doll every year now so Barbie can have a hoochy life. One of the justifications for a new boy doll was that it more accurately reflects today's society, where girls are less likely to date just one guy. But, really, couldn't girls use a good role model? Besides, if girls want Barbie to date someone else . . . there's always Allen.
