'Big Bang Theory': Sheldon's love blossoms with Mayim Bialik

mayim-bialik-jim-parsons.jpgSheldon is getting a love interest on "The Big Bang Theory."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Blossom" star of yore Mayim Bialik has been cast as Victoria, a "female version of [Sheldon], a nerdy brain that he meets on eHarmony."

She will first appear in the May 24 season finale on CBS.

Mayim has recently been seen as Dr. Wilameena Bink on "Secret Life of the American Teenager" and Dr. Bialik on "'Til Death." She shouldn't have any trouble playing a Sheldon-esque nerd -- Mayim received her PhD in Neuroscience from UCLA in 2004.

We've been waiting for a love interest for Sheldon, maybe this one will be an actual girlfriend? We can't wait! Now if we can just make that Betty-White-as-Sheldon's-mee-ma thing happen, we'll be all set.
