But the people who create those scripted dramas or comedies and those who produce the reality knockoffs are rarely one and the same. And that makes Ilene Chaiken a pioneer of sorts. Chaiken has cast six women to live their lives on-camera for nine weeks, starting Sunday, June
The Real L Word : Reality series. Sundays on Showtime. The question is whether that talk will be more negative than positive.
WhitneyRomiSara, Kacy and Cori will be returning for a third round of what-the-fuck-ever and this season will also see the show expand to both coasts, with an LA cast and a New York City cast. A committed bachelor, Lauren is anxiously awaiting the move from NYC of her best friend with benefits, Amanda. Kiyomi rock band front woman — NYC Kiyomi is the ultra-cool, heartbreaking rock star at the center of Hunter Valentine.
This week, we open on Whitney and Sara, still in bed, still naked, and still going at it. After they find the motivation to get vertical and go outside, Whitney and Sara check out that other hotbed of lesbian activity: a dog park. This park suddenly has two bitches, too many. Rachel leaves without confronting Whitney.
Sign in. Picking up a month later, love is in the air for The Real L Word ladies as season three comes to a conclusion. With Hunter Valentine?
Reality TV is a tricky medium. The second season, which premiered last Sunday night, is a radically different show in that Whitney is the only returning cast member, and the rest of the new ones all appear to be just as willing as she is to get naked and intimate on screen. A large part of being a lesbian is sex.
When the network renewed the show for a second season, they said it was because they had found something in Whitney and her circle of friends; something they thought was worth exploring. Photos from Showtime. Caution: Spoilers for the first episode of Season 3 ahead.
Watching the third episode…it starts with Cori and Kacy…the too cute for words married couple who are trying to start a family…purchasing sperm. And to think that dumb, drunk heteros give the shit away…but I digress. But us lesbos…well, we seem to think its worth a shot.
This Sunday, Showtime debuts a reality-television counterpart to The L Word — its off-the-air show about the interconnected lives of a glamorous posse of West Hollywood lesbians — called, easily enough, The Real L Word. Ilene Chaiken whom we profiled when The L Word debuted created both shows, and though reality shows have originated from scripted series before think Laguna Beach from The OC ; Real Housewives from Desperate Housewivesthis marks an unprecedented kind of mini-franchise. When you were working on The L Wordthere was plenty of that.
Have you ever had that dream in which you walk into a meeting and suddenly you realize you're cold because you're not wearing any pants? I have, and it is a recurring dream, showing up about once a month in my sleep schedule. Being naked in public might be a stressful nightmare for some, but for others stripping down is all fun and games. Season 3 of Showtime's The Real L Word followed a group of lesbians as they navigated sex, relationships and binge drinking on both coasts.
