Real L Word Episode 207 Recap: Play With Fire and Microwave Your Desire

You guys, True Blood is SOOOO good this season! Twist after turn after twist after turn! See, I watch True Blood at 9:00 PM on Sunday nights and I’m always super pumped to follow up my True Blood viewing session with a brand-new ripe episode of The Real L Word at 10pm because, as I think we can all agree here, The Real L Word is basically the Mona Lisa of reality television and this Sunday night was no exception.

It’s like Monsterpiece Theater.

Someone call Charles Darwin ’cause there’s some serious evolution going on this season. And that evolution is happening on top of Romi’s head.

Romi Klinger: helping babygays everywhere by demonstrating a new alternative lifestyle haircut every week.

So we open with a warning from some benevolent higher power that this show is for mature audiences, which is debatable.

You know what this show needs? Men!

lesbians love men

I’m especially digging the opening theme song this week. It’s like how I feel about this show, “It was just another night, I don’t wanna think about it.” It’s perfect!

We open with Venice Beach stock footage and unfamiliar hip-hop music which means this scene will either be about the black girl or the girl-sporting-the-hairstyle-traditionally-associated-with-black-people.

It turns out to be the former – Sajdah and Chanel are at the laundromat, washing cum towels, that blue shirt Sajdah wears in every interview and probably about ten Hanes white v-neck t-shirts. Saj loves the V.

for the 100th time i'm not washing the shirt i was wearing when we first kissed i don't care how bad it smells

Sajdah: “Things are going well for Chanel and I. We’ve been together for over a month now, and we’ve progressed a lot, I mean, we’re intimate, I don’t know I think it’s time to take the next step.”

i think your watch is broken

Sajdah’s basically attempting to corner Chanel into a Promise Keepers situation and Chanel isn’t having it.

Sajdah: “You moving in, you’re my wife, we should practice.”
Chanel: “Practice what?”
Sajdah: “Being married.”
Chanel: “You just wanna have sex.”
Sajdah: “Not just for sex, I want you around all the time.”

Specifically around Sajdah’s waist:

do the humpty hump

Sajdah: “I hump her in public, she gets really upset about it. I mean shit, that’s the perk of being in a relationship.”

It’s true that if you’re in a relationship you’re less likely to get a shot of pepper spray in your eyeballs when you violate a woman’s pre-established physical boundaries, but that still don’t make it polite, RamboLesbo.

Chanel: “Stop grabbing my butt in public.”
Sajdah: “I wanna fuck you.”

Sajdah’s basically one unwanted humping away from being a part of somebody’s yelp review on how this laundromat is filled with crazy people.

Marissa?

Cut to church, where KayKay’s humbling herself before G-d, praying about sperm.

just please god get this staple out of my brain

“I couldn’t imagine not having kids,” says Kacy. Me neither, ’cause it’s all they ever talk about. I feel like without a baby they’d dissolve into thin air.

Kacy:There’s something about getting on your knees, and really focusing in on what you want.”

 

Again this week Laneia decided to watch the show with her girlfriend and provide me with periodic updates re: their feelings:

Laneia: I feel like showing Kacy mixed in with all these other people is mean and takes away from their authenticity  / makes me sadder for them. Because their shit is real and fucking in a laundry basket is just trite.

Oh good, Vivian’s coming to LA. Cocomo Claire needs a buddy with arms and legs and a really gigantic heart right about now.

"francine francine francine francine"

Vivian hops into Clairealicious’s Lovemobile where a rose awaits her in the passenger seat ’cause Claire’s such a gentle tiger and Vivian is really just obnoxiously hot and has a Julia Stiles voice.

Oh and also:

Claire: “It’s good to see a face that doesn’t wanna rip my head off every second of every day.”

anyone want to baby koala

Vivian, who seems at once totally over it and totally into it, chats with Claire about the possibility of running into Francine during this trip, maybe at a Pan-Asian restaurant or something.

shit it's been so long i forgot to cut my nails

More fun topics await:

Claire: “You know I like it when we’re joined at the hip but I feel like sometimes we start bickering when we’re joined at the hip.”
Vivian: “I like how you’re already thinking about us not getting along which actually doesn’t usually happen. You’re confusing me with your other Asian.”

who? mulan?

dotted-divider2

Cut to an unnamed restaurant, probably The Olive Garden, where Khristianne and Francine are having dinner with Kelsey and Romi to talk shit about Claire.

So, Francine digs in, you know me and Claire aren’t speaking anymore, right? which serves to intro a Shittalking Shitstorm which is, ultimately, glorious. Claire’s growing on me as like the most entertaining aspect of this show ’cause she’s so fucking unpredictably bratzy.

L to R: x, x, Claire, Romi, Francine

Francine ignites the storm with an email from Claire which Francine remembers going like this:

“Everyone’s such a loser on the show. No one even has a real job. Everyone works in retail or in makeup that’s not a real job.”

Not Kelsey! Kelsey doesn’t have any job at all, she’s just keeping it real and babysitting the fairies who live in Romi’s hairdo, buying the alcohol, writing poetry and making dinner from Rachel Ray’s 20-Minute Dinners for Unhappy Couples. 

But AHEM Romi’s going through a Productive Life Transformation and Accomplishing Big Things and don’t you dare, CLAIRE, insult Romi at this juncture.

Francine: “Then she’s like, Whitney all she does is party for a living.”
Romi: “Bitch you moved here with no job, go back. Who does she think she is? What does she think I’m doing?”

If you thought this scene was about Claire or Francine or Khristianne you’re wrong, it’s about Romi!

Nobody who isn't serious about what they do would wear this on their head, mmk?

Francine: “You know what she said about Sara? That she has a dog face.”

Meaningful, coming from someone who occasionally verges on Golden Retrievery hair.

Kelsey: “Oh hell no.”
Romi [interview]: “I was like alright, she’s a deb, she’s done.”

next!

Romi does what every sensible lesbian does when they receive second-hand gossip about someone talking shit about their friends to a different friend: she immediately texts everyone she knows. That’s my girl.

Cue Lesbian Text-Message Tree!

 

Cut to Whitney’s Pussy Palace, where she’s getting Romi’s text in real time and who’s there to process the shit-talking with her? None other than Razor-Tongued Rose Garcia, who you all remember from Season One. It’s almost like Whitney phoned-a-friend and picked the Shit-Talking Expert to come in for a consult.

all up in our stars and shit

Whitney, reading Romi’s text:

“I was about to help her with her with the shoot but I guess I can tell her I’m too busy playing with lipstick. Who does this bitch think she is?”

Malibu Barbie, I think.

Whitney: “Here’s the thing: you can’t hold your own in any city. You’re whack. You have no personality and no fucking soul, so good luck in any city.”
Rose: “Nobody likes this girl, dude.”

Claire’s gonna have to move to the country, maybe Nebraska or something.

does this look like a hotel room to anyone else

Whitney says Claire could’ve had a “friend circle” (like the classic Minnie Driver vehicle Circle of Friends) but instead she’s just got a giant bucket o’enemies (like the classic 156-piece chicken meal from Kentucky Fried Chicken).

 

Laneia: don’t burn a bridge with whitney

    So before this popped up in my Google Reader I was scanning my eyeballs over something titled “Is There Still a Chance for Meaningful Compromise on Debt Reduction?”

    Shortly after switching over here I came to the conclusion that “That’s what she said” should be in wider usage on the Internets, today and every day.

    Let me try to follow this. Whitney feels her being the center of attention is being threatened by Claire. Seems Claire has a knack of attracting extremely beautiful women. Whitney talks about Claire behind her back to that appalling individual who later decides to pick a fight with Claire, a person she has never met before. Claire tells Francine what occurred which seems to make Francine happy. Claire gets mad at Francine for being elated she was insulted by a loser. Claire later complains to Francine on a personal text that Whitney was behind it which is well obvious. Francine, obviously still in love with Claire, listens to the chef who wants her and throws Claire’s clothes out. Note to chef – when your new gf cannot stop talking about and crying over her ex it is a sign that – well you mean little to her except as a rebound so she doesn’t feel so bad about herself. Francine, still mad, decides to sabotage Claire when it comes to work. Whitney, who may be the most repugnant self-absorbed reality show star since Puck, decides to play the I can talk behind your back but you can’t behind mine game. This includes a high school type confrontation when Whitney, again as detestable a person as you will see on a reality show, shows how pathetic she is. Maybe Whitney should tell Francine “You shouldn’t share a text your ex sent to you and only you.” and offer Francine solace. But hey this is Whitney’s world.

    As for Channel, I hope your next gf acts more mature than a 12 year old. Really felt bad for her having to put up with that stuff.

    Why do I watch this? The more I watch the more I don’t want to know these people. I went to middle school already. Once was enough for me. Why is IFC trying to sensationalize drama? The more she does it the more absurd and idiotic everybody looks. So, am I an idiot for watching this?

    i love how everyone’s first response to “Sara has a dog face” was a laugh. Even Claire couldn’t keep a straight face when she realized how funny it was that she said it. I think Franny really kept repeating it because it was hilar.

    To me, Claire = Kanye West @ The VMAs….she only said what everybody was thinking and in turn, is the bad guy for doing so. Whatever… Ima Deb for Claire. #TeamClaireDontCare

    The real question of this recap is: Riese – did you really break your wrist “air-planning”?

    First off, Maniac Magee was an awesome book for me. I still have my copy somewhere *drifts off* good book…

    Sajdah. Yeah, she had to be confusing “you’re not listening” with “you’re not agreeing with me.” First girlfriends, it’s nuts. Kinda feel bad for Chanel, Saj was being a brat, but then again, I was bratty at times with my first gf. Guess it’s just growing. Marissa – “this is crazy!!!”

    well, from a logistical/producer’s P.O.V. … the best way to ensure Claire returns to Season 3 is to make her indispensable to the main drama… so, make her Whitney’s Worst Enemy (& major plot point) & she’ll come back a bigger & badder character next year.

    It totally felt like I shouldn’t have been watching Cori and Kacy’s storyline. It felt waaaay too personal to be watched I don’t know.
    And Vivian is hot. Like how does Claire get all of these hot Asians hot. What that doesn’t make sense? I watch The Real L Word for entertainment it’s not supposed to make sense.

    Yeah, I felt bad for Chanel in this episode. The laundry mat scene was awkward and the fight just sucked to watch. I think Sadjah is relatively harmless, I would jock up alot of her behavior to just immaturity.

    Respecting Women 101: If a woman sets a boundary, you should respect the boundary. Chanel saying “No” and then Sadjah grabbing her anyway is really bad in general.

    Whenever Vivian or Chanel are on the screen, the main thing running through my head is “She’s so pretty! Eff, she’s so pretty!”.

      Ah yes, you have to remember the “bye”. The “bye” is the best part.

      “I look good, you all look fake and crazy” is good.

      But….

    Riese, I feel guilty watching this show because a.) it’s trash, b.) I once swore never to watch the oeuvre of IFC again and c.) I read your article on how shitty they were to you. But I’m sucked in.

    But…BUT. I love your recaps and without the show I never would have found your fabulous site. So, I wanted to send you a silver lining. Your hours of screen capping baby drama and near date rapes in the laundromat are not in vain.

    Also, Vivian is too good to be real. I think she’s a bodhisattva.

    Sadjah really just made a complete ass out of herself. If my girlfriend were talking to me like that, I’d be gone. FUCK! I can’t believe Chanel put up with her shit for so long. I’m glad you compared S to Rose because that is exactly what I thought of as I watched this! Rose being verbally abusive to Natalie last season after behaving badly, and basically not having/not trying to have any communication/comprehension skills.

    This whole Claire fiasco… yes she’s a complete brat and occasional asshole, but she basically said what we’re all thinking, right? It’s pretty clear she’s annoying and says dumb things but she’s really not as mean as she’s being made out to be. (Also. WTF. How is she getting these hot girls (cough) VIVIAN (cough)????)

    I don’t know about Francine. She was the only person I liked from the beginning but sharing private conversations she had with Claire with others was not very cool of her. She could have put it another way and not been so gossipy, but whatevs.

    … and Whitney. This girl. LOL. The way she’s stringing Rachel along is just cruel. (Though of course Rachel is getting more and more embarrassing to watch. Like I can’t even.) I don’t for one second believe that Whitney & Rose did not talk shit about Claire before their drunken friend randomly insulted Claire the other night. I mean that was basically where it all began. Had this incident not happened, Claire wouldn’t have said/texted/emailed things to Francine about the other girls (which was dumb of her, but mostly true.)

    Kelsey looks like she’s on something all the time, sober or not. Out of it. But of course, she and Chanel are the only attractive people on the show.

    OH AND VIVAN!!! HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT. MORE OF HER PLS

    So. I used to watch this show all the time. Then, i realized that the recaps made me less nauseated. Then this recap made me watch the episode.

    Also, moment of zen: When I was in high school, a kid in a neighboring town was scuffling with a friend after school, and his friend LITERALLY threw him into the street, and then a bus ran over him. HE WAS LITERALLY THROWN UNDER A BUS, CLAIRE. YOU HAVE NO IDEA.

    And then, my chem teacher was like “in your lab report, when you discuss errors, DO NOT THROW YOUR LAB GROUP UNDER THE BUS” like three days after it happened.

    TOO SOON.

    This episode made me cringe, because between Claire and Francine, and Sajdah and Chanel, I don’t know who made me more uncomfortable and annoyed. I totally agree that Claire is a frikking mega-brat, to the point where I’d shake her if I had to be around her. But Francine sharing private texts? I don’t know them and thus don’t know if maybe Francine and Whitney know each other (or did each other, since, it’s Whitney) from way back when, but if they don’t? Then who the hell are you to run around and be all “ooo Claire was talking smack about you!” I half-expected her to tell Whitney that Claire said to meet her at the jungle gym so they can settle this once and for all. Not cool, and very childish.

    As for Chanel and Saj, well, we have a saying in the Caribbean for what Saj was trying to be here and that’s “wrong and strong.” Which, clearly, you can’t be. I think I was more embarrassed for Sajdah and sympathetic for Chanel because sometimes I’m also quiet in a new social environment. Someone needs to tell Sajdah that this isn’t a Katy Perry song and not everyone’s a firework. She should have just let Chanel get there on her own instead of being her usual hyperactive-like-a-Yorkie self. Sometimes you gotta dial it back a notch.

    And I’m with everyone else…more of Vivian, because damn.

    that scene in the laundromat with Sajdah should have come with a trigger warning. seriously, how are more people not a little more incensed about that. if I saw that shit i’d want to intervene somehow.
    but also, are chanel and saj. the only ones that get the hip-hop music? i thought i was just imagining that shit.

    i’d like more kelsey, less romi.

    So, I did not watch this episode. To be honest I watched the first episode cause our photoshoot was I guess in it, I dunno, and then the second episode, I fast-forwarded to the parts where Franny was it, and since then I’ve just been reading these recaps cause they are the best part of my week. Hilarious Riese. Obvs this show and these women are set up as easy targets, but you do a really nice job of being funny without being a jerk, which I’m thinking is really hard to do. Cause c’mon people…. this is so dumb.

    Ugh, so many feelings.

    2) I wish that everything Claire said “literally” would actually happen. So, Claire being thrown under a bus upon meeting new people via Fran. Fran spontaneously moving into an adorable donkey in the middle of the night club. etc.

    3) I think Kacey should win Best Butch on the Block of the Year.

    I have to say there is a large distinction between saying to someone that this other new person who has just rocked up from out of town and keeps acting in a negative way may be a bit of a “deb” (which a drunken overzealous friend will then repeat umteen times as they have been drinking and have slanted logic in that moment and over-state things) and someone saying more cutting things like you have no job and just like to party all the time (like you are effectively just a frivelous individual) but then wants to use you and your popularity for their own favour. Also the criticism from a lot of people saying Whitney is stringing Rachel along seems a little harsh… Yes they got messy and intimate at that pool party- for sure Whitney should maybe have put up a kind of self-barrier so she wouldn’t go there so as to spare the feelings Rachel clearly has for her… but we all do silly things when tangled up in issues of the heart and when it comes to people we have been intimate with already. I think Whitney seems to be trying to take a step back so as to not blur the lines in her relationship with Rachel (as in making it seem their once-off intimacy was not more than just a hook-up) so that Rachel doesn’t become more attatched, but she does still have her back by asking Allysa to look out for her. Its difficult because how accessible can you be to a person you know still cares about you without you maybe encouraging some hope their end that they may get to be with you. I have been in a similar situation so can understand that even though it looks like Whitney here was in “Whitneyland” and detatched maybe she is just trying to not get too close so as to try avoid Rachel getting more involved with her. Grrrrrrrr! Complications of affection and love! I’m just saying people maybe shouldn’t be so harsh and shouldn’t assume that Whitney’s main motivation is to “play em and leave em”… maybe I’m naive! Don’t know.

    Every time Sadjah has come on screen I cringe, but this episode took the cake. I get it that you may not have experience dating girls but who acts that way with anyone? The laundromat humping was so so bad…and then when she didn’t stop when Chanel asked – ugh! She is so clueless about people it’s just sad and embarrassing to watch.

    Now, Claire…when that girl called her a “deb” a few episodes ago, at first I thought she was making fun of her for being a rich, spoiled “debutante” type! But ragging on her for being a negative nightmare is on point too.

    Does Claire not see how stupid she sounds saying that the other girls on the show don’t have jobs? What job does she have exactly? Her website?! That’s hilarious (oh that episode with the meeting about her site was cringe-worthy – I can’t write, I know nothing about web design, blah blah, what? I won’t be anyone’s secretary, no way!). It’s sad to me that Vivian let’s her get away with her hideous behavior, and calls it “bratty” like Claire is 5 years old. Claire is a narcissistic jerk that much is clear and her tirades about all the “haters” are just more evidence of that. I have wanted to punch in the tv screen with her. I mean, she’s attractive and all but the moment she opens her mouth it’s completely lost…WTF does Vivian see in her?

    sajdah’s was completely violating chanel’s personal space and body, and her excuse for doing so was because they are in a relationship. whether you are in a relationship with someone or not, consent is always paramount. if a person tells you that they do not want to be touched, then BASIC RESPECT and COMMON DECENCY would tell you that not to touch them. being new to lesbianism is no excuse for her disrepectful and domineering behavior.

    vivian is one of the most gorgeous people i’ve ever seen. she’s bewitching in every sense of the word. damn, how did CLAIRE of all people swing that? and manage to keep someone like vivian interested in her after she moved to l.a. to famehore on t.v. and potentially mess around with francine? it’s shocking. you can do better vivian.

    i’m glad romi is getting her life back on track. i wish her luck. i do wish kelsey would get her shit together too. it is not even cute that she was recently fired from two jobs and she ALWAYS seems high as a kite. i’m not sure if she’s an alcholic or if romi is pressuring her to feel that way because it’s better for her sobriety not to be in a relationship with someone who drinks. either way kelsey should be coming to a conclusion about her drinking by herself and not be manipulated into not drinking over the potential loss of her relationship. maybe the solution to this problem is that romi should just break up with her and find someone on her level, career wise and sobriety wise.

    As usual the recaps are so very funny and I can’t wait to read them. But as someone who has been in Cori and Kacy’s shoes, I cannot laugh at their predicament. Its seriously tough to be a lesbian and trying to have a baby. It a test for any relationship and there are so many mind trips that occur when one doesn’t get pregnant right away. And unfortunately it can take YEARS – UGH ! So glad its over and we have our kids. The process was tough and watching it on screen I felt so much empathy. . .

    Claire should be my least favorite after these recaps but because of them I LOVE HER. This shit is hilarious. Also, what IS whitney’s job? Seriously.

    Franny, too funny. TOO FUNNY.

    It makes me laugh reading the arguments btw. Sajdah and Chanel; saw them at the SF Dyke March and Sajdah was all like, “Thank you thank you, love my fans, thanks for the support” and Chanel was like, “Go baby, bask in your non-fame!” and it was cute and hilarious and fucking ridiculous all at the same time. So apparently, they worked that shit out.

    And Chanel’s weave has drastically improved. Four points for you Chanel.

    Otherwise, I still can’t bring myself to watch this show. I’d like to get to know these people without having my brain tainted by their exaggerated for-tv characters/caricatures.

    Riese outstanding job on the recap I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard after reading something. I also like AE but their recap doesn’t compare. As for the show, the only main reason why I watch it is to see Kacy and Corie’s storyline, they seem real sweet and I think people feel for them and what they’re going through in each episode. Like Whitney said they’re the unicorn couple that a lot people want to be like. Also, Romi is kinda growing on me. I thought she was kinda crazy and a little too attached to Whitney in the first season but it’s good to see her growing up on camera, I hope that she keeps it up.
