In other words, will never here from Bebe again unless Trey and Matt suck up and have her voice done by April Stewart or Mona Marshall.

I wouldn't be the first time they'd had to replace a voice actress. :(

Yes, I know about the Mary Kay Bergman and Eliza Schneider cases, but I think M&T set the role of Bebe aside only for Jennifer Howell, much like how Chef was reserved for Issac Hayes. Hopefully though, they come to their senses and find a new voice for Bebe Stevens.

I agree with you. (interestingly Mary Kay voiced Bebe in Weight Gain 4000, but only that one time)

they can back seat Bebe's friendship with Wendy. Bebe did pull a gun on Wendy after all. They can simply have Wendy call her a b*tch or something (since girls seem to turn on eachother for no reason), and push Red, Lola, or Jenny to Wendy's main best friend.

Wondering why Stan didn't dump his 'gay' necklace off on Wendy. I'm sure she would've atleast feigned being ecstatic about it.

Maybe because M&T have forgotten about their relationship?

they probably didn't forget the relationship, I guess it's due to the lack of Stan/Wendy focused episodes, they have no real show of strength for their relationship.

I mean, we get Wendy cares for him (Assburgers) but after that, they spend little screen time together. (Which maybe good, as we don't have to fear them breaking up again!)

Matt and Trey don't pair Stan and Wendy off a lot because it isn't funny, nor can it drive a storyline unless it's a matter of "oh no, I'll lose him/her!".

The funny thing is their relationship is the strongest the show's maintained - they're more peaceful than any of the other major characters' parents' marriages, save maybe the Broflovskis.

I'd like them to have an episode where Stan fear loosing Wendy to some new boy, but they both decide that they should learn to trust one another around people of the opposite sex, and how this will strengthen their relationship.

They almost did that in Elementary School Musical. Almost

In this week's episode, I can see Wendy as the bully. Does anyone else think so?

I found that someone screencapped this on Facebook. It's from American Dad:

Looks awful familiar, huh?

Except for her part in the video shoot, Wendy was pretty much a non-factor in the Butterballs episode. Red (and maybe even Lola), had more time then Wendy did.

I agree that the Stendy relationship does not create good story plots because, to put it in racing terms, Wendy wears the firesuit in the relationship (see episodes 1209/1313/1404), so there is less of a romantic element there.

For some odd reason, M&T seems to be unwilling to use Wendy for supporting roles unless it relates to her relationship with Stan. They mostly only use her in the very rare instances where a main role requires a girl/liberal kid character. So in that sense, Wendy is better described as an occasional main character rather than as a supporting character.

Unlike other supporting kid characters, Wendy in her past appearances has demonstrated a rich, deep personality that typically only main characters possess. This is the reason why I like her as much as Stan and Kyle, even though her usage level is excruciating low.

IMO the only way to see Wendy more in future episodes is if M&T stop seeing her as only "Stan's girlfriend". M&T should be more open to use Wendy in intelligent gender-neutral main character roles instead of automatically resorting to using Stan or Kyle. Otherwise, Wendy would be hard-pressed to find a place in a show that covers very little of the female realm.
