For those of you unable to afford brain reconstruction surgery, you probably still have PTSD flashbacks regarding Showtime’s Semi-Hit Shitshow The Real L Word, that fantastic program about the loves, lives, lust and lornadoones of several good-looking lesbians residing in the Los Angeles area. Perhaps you also remember the time that Executive Editor Laneia and Miss April Sarah Croce decided that Autostraddle was obligated by some higher power to produce a Real L Word parody video and I (Riese) said ABSOLUTELY NOT, but then this happened anyhow:
But that was only Part One! It’s been months, where’s part two? Well, I (Riese) sort of lost interest in the whole project BUT LUCKY FOR YOU, Sarah Croce stepped in! She’s a Jackie of all Trades or something, and a magical person.
That’s right, our intrepid supermodel Sarah Croce not only learned how to use Final Cut but subsequently applied this knowledge to editing Part Two herself! It’s like really good you guys.
So without any further ado (and face it, I just put you through a ton of fucking ado) — Part Two of The Real L Word parody, starring a bunch of people, edited by Sarah Fucking Croce:
The New York City cast of this video were filmed by two real lesbians, Millie and Jenn of Onyxrai Productions, and produced by Autostraddle.com and Geek Goddess Productions. The Los Angeles segments (Ilene & EZier Girl and Stamie & Tracy) were filmed by a tripod and Stamie’s nanny, respectively.

You know when you watch a video, and then you just like, explode? That just happened to me. “We’ll just tent it… Oh! There’s already a tent!” And then baby koala and “On CARDSTOCK!” bahahahahahahaha
Oh my god. I legit do not remember taping any of this anymore, so this was a real treat. Croce, you really outdid yourself on this one.
you are brill in this
AWW THANK YOU GUYSSSSS.
LMAO AT EVERYTHING! That is the funniest shit!
High fives all around!
\o/ \o/ \o/
This video made my day/weekend/week/month!
ALMOST makes me want to watch the Real L Word. ALMOST.
If it’s possible to love internet strangers for a job well done, then I love you guys. this was great
THANK YOU Sarah Croce :-)
Also, you *need* to bring yourself/style over to London sometime.
This is the best thing on the internet, like, ever.
We should tent it.
I have so much love for all the girls in this video and all the girls from TRLW I’ve met in person who are such great sports about this by the way. I’m gonna actually watch it this season. I have a good feeling it is going to be legen… wait for it… dary.
I’m glad I’m not lactose-intolerant.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHH THIS IS THE BEST
robin is the best raquel EVER
THANKS!!! Only love for that woman. She’s so damn funny. Why doesn’t she have her own show yet?
I have two comments about the slow-mo straddle w/sarah c. & alex v.:
1. If autostraddling was an olympic sport, i’m pretty sure that running start straddle would’ve easily clinched the gold. EASILY.
2. It also reminded me of Dirty Dancing – y’know, when they finally get the jump? NOBODY PUTS BABY IN A CORNER!
everyone involved in this is pure magic
AS never fails to make me laugh, even on the crappiest of days.
Major props to Sarah for mastering Final Cut and making it her bitch!
Def just watched this on my phone because I COULD NOT WAIT. my #1 feeling is HAHAHHAHAHAHAHA CARLY I LOVE YOU. my #2 feeling is that I wanna put my Natalie costume/wig back on and fight with Jennifer all day long.
lololol the marriage proposal scene
THERE’S ALREADY A TENT
great! that’ll save me like 10 grand
I replayed that part like five times during my first viewing.
3:59 Raven calendar. A+!
this is actually my favorite part of the video, the secret Raven cameo.
why wasn’t i wearing my natalie wig? oh because it was also the mikey wig.
“actually, it’s SADA.”
i can’t stop. thank you croce!
Croce, I am SO excited to be working with you.
Everyone else, yes. Excellent work!
I will NEVER get over Alex as Sara, Romi AND Tor. Alex, you amaze and astound me.
This was hilarious and all, but that little stuffed bulldog in the background was soooooo adorable (me = lil ADD) ^_^
OMG Robin. OMG.
Crushin on sarah & alex aaaah
Omg this was hilarious!
HA! I love you all so much!
i think my favorite exchange is:
“My name is Romi! I’M ROMI!”
“Ohh fuck… what time is it?”
i would submit that the best part is actually about three seconds after that when croce puts on her sunglasses, because that is how Pussy Sluts signal that cuddle time is over. sorry babe, this has been fun but i need to put the indoors sunglasses back on now. <3
You are all so funny and awesome in this!
soooooooooo good. 5.75 billion?
The “okayyy, might as well get married in Kmart, alright” line is one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard in my life.
i loved that too. this whole thing = so amazing.
after a few views, i have finally found my favorite part: fucking handcuffs hanging on the wall next to the light switch.
done AND done.
Thank you Croce! Freaking hilarious! I can only imagine how many takes it took to get all that without giggling up a storm.
Ahaha, this is hilarious.”I’m just a pussy slut.” -Croce as Whitney
Props to Autostraddle in April !
Sarah > Whitney. Im just saying.
I’m gonna break your spine in half. LOL
I laughed very very loudly through the whole of this – brilliant!
Carly’s a dreamboat!
Hahaha, I love your take on Nikki and Jill. The Disney colouring book pages made me lol.
Please do more!
Also, Sarah Croce has beauuutiful eyes and sexy dreads.
love it… the music for Whitney…perfect
ah this was a blast to watch
THIS IS SO FUNNY
hahaha hilarious. loved it. the tent bit was so funny :)
1. the bestest part of this video is that i didn’t make it
2. haviland being chased by the girl in the yard
3. robin roemer
4. so funny
I was holding off watching it to make it kind of an event: my girlfriend and I last night re-watched some of our favorite real l-word episodes back to back, followed by the parody (hadn’t seen part one before either).
Thanks guys for a great evening!!
hahaha. omg this is brilliant! made me laugh sooo hard
I think the best part is that Alex played Romi, Sara, AND Tor. I mean, they did kind of all look alike. It’s like those fashion things that tell you how to switch from day to night, just buy putting on some sparkle eyeshadow. Switch from Tor to Romi, just by adding a feather earring and slouchy hat!
this is fantastic. now, I’m going to watch it again.
Hey ladies, much respect in doing what you do! You ladies are awesome! Really!
where are sarah’s pants from? they are perfect
