WHAT’S IN THE LIVE PLANT BOX? It’s raging feminist Carmen Rios, our special guest for this week’s episode of “To L and Back”! If you’ve been reading Autostraddle for a minute then you’re familiar with Carmen, have missed her a lot, and will be VERY eager to hear her opinions on this week’s episode in which Carmen De La Pica Morales pours a lot of beer on Shane’s shirt, Shane gets a very attentive flower delivery person, Dana plays in the Rooti Tooti Fresh and Fruity Tennis Tournament but is a little distracted about how badly she needs to tell Ton-Ton that she’s totally not in this relationship anymore, Alice has knit herself a full outfit, Bette wears jeans for the first time and would like to talk about what Tina’s gonna do with that baby, and Helena gets really horny at a donor dinner and invites Tina to hang at the Chateau Marmont pool… NAKED. Also, Charlotte Birch holds office hours at the gym and Carmen wears a controversial t-shrit!
