“To L and Back” L Word Podcast Episode 110: “Luck, Next Time”

This post is, I must admit, a day late but it is not, however, one dollar short. This is because it never had any dollars to begin with. Anyhow! Today we have a wonderful episode to discuss with you, in which we are treated to our first glimpse of Cherie Jaffe’s lingerie and Snoop Dogg’s affection for smoothies!

  1. Rosanna Arquette as Cherie Jaffe is *definitely* Mommi.

    Rosanna Arquette in general is Mommi, tbh, and also probably part of my root. I remember being 5 or 6 years old and watching Desperately Seeking Susan over and over again, just fascinated by both her and Madonna.

    PS – How great would a queer remake of that movie be? PRETTY FUCKING GREAT IS THE ANSWER AND I WANT IT.
