Reality television took on a new dimension when Showtime's “The Real L Word” first aired on June 20, 2010. The third season of this show is scheduled to premiere in July, promising to delve even deeper into the exciting lives of lesbians in LA and NYC.
The Roots of “The Real L Word”
The executive producer of “The L Word” and the creators of “Project Runway” and “Top Chef” bring viewers the seductive reality series “The Real L Word.” The success of the drama “The L Word” was inspiration for this steamy reality show. Each story is uniquely different as smart and beautiful LA ladies show they know what they want and how to get it.
The television drama “The L Word” aired on Showtime from 2004 to 2009. It portrayed the lives of a group of lesbian, transgender and bisexual people and their family, friends and partners in greater Los Angeles, California. The show included stars such as Jennifer Beals and Erin Daniels.
After the successful airing of “The L Word,” executive producer Ilene Chaiken and Magical Elves Productions created “The Real L Word: Los Angeles.” The show follows a group of lesbians as they live their daily lives in LA. The success of the first and second seasons has lead to a third season scheduled to premiere on Showtime on July 12, 2012.
The Third Season of “The Real L Word”
The third season of “The Real L Word” will include LA glamor and Brooklyn cool. The show will follow new ladies on both the West Coast and the East Coast. Lesbian life and times in LA and NYC are the focus of the upcoming season of this unscripted docu-series.
During season two, Whitney and Romi remained friends with feelings. Kacey and Cori hoped to become parents. Saidah, who recently came out about her preference, looked for love. Claire started a lesbian magazine but faced conflicting feelings from her ex, Francine.
Several characters will be showcased during the third season of “The Real L Word.” Whitney is an untamed lover of life and a woman-magnet. Her complicated world includes exes and friends. She finds it hard to resist the temptress Sara, even though she has been warned by friends. Whitney has also put her special effects makeup projects on hold to focus on appearances and promote a monthly girl party, Juicy.
Sara is a fashionable stylist and former party girl who struggles about having a relationship with Whitney. She is also trying to decide whether to move back to NYC. Fans wonder if Sara and Whitney will get together or if the passion they once felt will burn out.
In July of 2008, Kacy married Cori. Together they are trying to focus on starting a family of their own. The journey to having a family is a difficult and expensive one as this young couple tries to conceive a child. Committed to having a family, Cori has taken on the role of carrying the pregnancy. She soon realizes conception is more emotional and trying than she expected.
Romi is an on-the-go woman whose sobriety has given her the focus to create and promote Casa Por Vida, her own jewelry line. She also explores opportunities in the music industry and as a host. Once friends and partners, Romi had a falling out with Whitney and believes Sara is the cause of it. Fans question if Romi can avoid the drama and focus on her career.
Lauren and her friends enjoy having a wild time in LA, what she claims as the hub of the lesbian scene in America. Amanda is Lauren's best friend with benefits and arrives on her doorstep after moving from NY. Fans are wondering if Lauren can keep her emotions at bay after the arrival of Amanda. Jet-setter Amanda feels at home in high society and calls out those who don't make the grade. A true New Yorker, Amanda finds it tough to deal with the relaxed vibe in Southern California.
Kiyomi is a rock star and true leader at the center of her girl group, Hunter Valentine. She is committed to the band and is ready to make it big with band mates Laura, Vero and Somer. Kiyomi struggles to balance a relationship at home while she deals with the demands of a rock and roll life.
Somer is the newest member of Hunter Valentine. She is trying to live a domesticated life with her new wife that includes babies and owning property while performing in an all-lesbian punk band. Somer's friends voted her “most likely to break a bottle at a bar” so it is easy to see where the lifestyles might clash.
The season premiere shows East meeting West. Fans can find out more about upcoming episodes of the show, pride events and more at "The Real L Word" Facebook page. The LA versus Brooklyn throw down is meant to see who comes out on top but they didn't count on how opposites attract. Below is a video preview of the third season of “The Real L Word.”
