VIDEO: Real L Word’s Lesbians Share Coming Out Stories and Common Misconceptions

Yesterday Showtime released a video of The Real L Word girls’ coming out stories. This is possibly the entire cast at their most loveable / relatable / “real.”

This video came out last week, and it’s about “misconceptions” people have about lesbians. Scarlett and Vivianne are both in it, so it seems really fancy:

  1. I don’t care about the contrived, spliced and diced drama featured on the actual show. THESE are the kinds of stories I’m interested in hearing about.

    Also, I’m not even gay, but I would totally do Scarlett in a heartbeat. Just sayin’.
