“To L and Back” L Word Podcast Episode 405: Lez Girls

Hey one second, Monet has come back from the dead and is on the other line and he says “please get Hazel the nanny out of this episode.” Just an idea! It’s a real rollercoaster of an episode this week: on the upside, we meet Tasha. On the downside, Phyllis’s family photo is troubling. Meanwhile: Bette and Jodi get dirty and nasty and high, Phyllis wants to orbit around Alice forever and ever, Debbie loves Lindsay’s sexy armpits and also manatees, Helena breaks glass all over her tiny foods, Jenny publishes her Russian novella “Lez Girls” in The New Yorker, Paige wishes Shane would hit on her and so do we. Get your torsos into your pants everybody.

    • ok first of all that recipe must have been in Ilene Chaiken’s head because “caviar and creme fraiche” was what Jenny had in her fridge in 401??? also yeah when i was re-watching to take screencaps i realized it said Blini and not Bellini but unfortunately our jokes were too funny to adjust the pod

  1. Why does Max still live with Jenny and Shane? He supposedly makes good money doing computer stuff at his tech company. Why is he still staying in the shed? It’s clear that no one including the show’s writers like him.
