The Real L Word: New York vs. LA

Let's face it: everyone watches reality shows.

Love them or hate them, everybody has seen at least a part of some white trash TV reality show. Even my Dad (quite a conservative man) watches the UK equivalent of Jersey Shore.

Yet for us gay ladies, reality shows rarely include lesbian activity. (We'll discount Big Brother, The Glee Project and America's Next Top Model, which occasionally include lesbian contestants and content.) So The Real L Word must be a must-see, right?

Well actually, no.

Most lesbians hate the show and think it puts lesbians across as a bunch of crazy, tattooed bitches who cause drama everywhere they go. (Which in my opinion, isn't that much of a stretch from the truth!)

Anyway, I got dragged in by the lure of its evil, trashy advances and decided to watch season 3.

This year (unlike previous years) The Real L Word crosses between New York and LA to show the lesbian scene on both sides of the US.

The New York persuasion includes lesbian band, Hunter Valentine (pictured below), who we see get into all kinds of trouble. (Especially Kiyomi, that girl is drama in human form.)

Over on the West Coast, we see the return of old favourites Whitney Mixter and Sara Bettencourt (below), along with the "normal" couple on the show, Cori and Kacy.

There's also appearance by Romi Klinger (who I personally despise with everything that I am) and a few new faces, such as Amanda Leigh Dunn and Lauren Bedford Russell.

But have you been watching? Honestly, I'd recommend watching this season. There have been tears, fights and sex, but it is actually such a fun show to watch.

If you have been watching, who is your favourite?

Paily: Do You Ship It?

So a lot of you watch ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars, right?

I understand a lot of you gays were disappointed with the death of this lady:

Yep, 1 half of the adorable couple dubbed "Emaya" was found dead last season on the show, but there's a new(ish) girl in town.

Emily Fields' (Shay Mitchell) new love interest comes in the form of Paige, a fellow swimmer and a former closet case.

Last episode, we saw Emily realise she liked Paige and they kissed in an almost fairytale-like scene.

But do you ship it? Honestly, I think I prefer Emaya, but I'm willing to give Paige a chance.

Let me know your thoughts and tune in to PLL this Tuesday (if you're in the States) on ABC Family at 8/7c.
