My Review. Another Lesbian.
19 December 2011 | by Talia-BagloSee all my reviews

Hello all, My name is Talia. I have been watching the show since it was first aired. I was very interested in the show "The L Word" because it helped me see and determine that things I like and things I know little about are ohkay, and it actually taught me more. Then the show "The Real L Word" came out... I was even more intrigued to watch it because these were real Lesbians living their lives. I was able to relate a lot to some of the characters. I am a work aholic and I have a partner who does not really understand that. Then I got laid off and have been struggling since and now she uses it to her advantage. So things have been rough. And we are young so I relate to the show. Mikey and Raquel. And then there is Romi and Kelsey. Whom I also relate too. Romi being the bread winner and Kelsey being the Mooch who doesn't have a job. That's exactly how it was/is with my partner and I. Because of Romi I see that there is no need to have this negative energy in my life and yet it was hard for her to see Kelsey go. As it is for me. You guys have had a huge impact on my life. So thank you. (: Nikki and Jill as well as, Kaci and Cory, I really admire the four of you. I really do.

This show is 100% amazing and always helps me to see that I am not the only one going through a certain situation. So thank you.

I can't wait for season 3. Yay! (; ~A huge fan, Talia Baglo!
