Aaron Sorkin had a penchant for featuring conservative blondes on “The West Wing” and “Studio 60" and Marilyn Monroe once starred in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.” But outside of Hugh Hefner and his three golden-haired girlfriends on “The Girls Next Door,” Hollywood hasn’t been praising blondes a whole lot lately.
