Two normal every day gals who are entrepreneurs working for themselves who happen to be Lesbians. Oh, and also they’re thrust into the lens of the camera playing out intense real-life lesbian drama from week to week. In chatting with Amanda Leigh Dunn and Lauren Russell from the Real L Word Season 3, that’s the dichotomy I seem to pick up from them. Perhaps that’s why we love The Real L Word – the accessibility in that, beneath all the crazy, these are real people living their real lives. Its all just been spiced up a bit with quick jumps and fancy camera edits.
I had the opportunity to interview Amanda and Lauren right in between the airing of episode 3 and 4. You know, the one where there’s a soggy mattress, drunk kiss, and discussion of a NYC ex? Yeah, that one. Be sure to watch the video to catch what they said about their “relationship” and hear their insight and innuendo on what’s to come this season!
The Real L Word airs on Showtime, Thursdays 10:00p ET/PT

A transplant from the snow and mountains of Upstate NY (why, yes, there IS an entire state above NYC!), Tina moved to Chicago in 2005. Since then, she’s taken full advantage of Chicago’s sports scene, participating in rugby, volleyball, and hockey – just to name a few. Her first love, however, is soccer. She's proud to have participated in both the 2006 and 2010 Gay Games as well as the 2009 Out Games. In addition to sports, Tina enjoys traveling (she tries to cross the atlantic at least once a year). Tina is a ‘Jackie of all trades’, so prepare for the unexpected!
