It’s good to be gay if it pays your way

There’s no doubt that The Real L Word was a manna from heaven for that bunch of girls who managed to make a profit out of being gay.
I must admit, I admire them, especially those who, like Romy, were able to make the most of their fleeting fame and obtained some TV appearances while also making profitable contacts with people such as Ilene Chaiken.
And look at her now, dressed like Waldo in Where’s Waldo?, mocking all that’s been said about her and about the lesbian stereotypes TRLW has contributed to construct and circulate (i.e. you’re all a bunch of haters; let’s have strap-on sex; the line of exes is better not to piss off, because, as Romy says, anyone is about to be your ex, and, last but not least,dreadlocks are the new black, baby) and making lots of money out of it!
As Geco has rightly pointed out, they should call the next piece I need I need I need and they’ll make a splash!
In comparison, we must admit, Whitney’s clubbing habits are just stuff for beginners.
(Whitney who is, by the way, the big absent in this video, where even Rachel makes an appearance, looking all happy and settled in L.A.)
Well, I may be naïve or overtly optimistic but I like the self-irony of it, and I wholeheartedly approve!
