It's like a Subaru commercial just landed on my blog. Like an Ani DiFranco song playing in a night club full of lady love, Carol and Brandy come sweeping in to answer my call for "More lesbians!" on reality shows. For years we've been blessed with "Token Gays" and, while they're usually fabulous (save Sam and Dan), the ladies haven't really had a chance to represent. In honor of my salaciously fierce girl crush on Kate Moennig, I'm officially dubbing this team: Team L Word.
Carol runs her own company, doesn't like it that Brandy bites (nice!), and claims that joining The Amazing Race is very out of character for her. Brandy, on the other hand, is an actress, prides herself on her spontanaeity, and thinks we'd all be surprised to know that she's bisexual. They love their dogs, like to cook, and want to be the first all female team to win The Amazing Race. One thing they both agree on is that communication will be their biggest challenge. I'll bet these two have wicked bitter fights... followed by some hot boobie fondling lady sex. Is it just me or am I getting a major Tasha and Alice vibe from these two? Carol being Tasha and Brandy being Alice.
I'd love to be able to share Team L Word's video with you, but guess what? Looks like some fucktard with a remarkable lack of brain cells removed the videos from both youtube and cbs.com. Wow... it's even gone from IMDb.com. Dammit... I've searched every single site the videos have been posted on and they're all gone. Seriously, who's genius idea was this with the show 2 weeks away? Unbelievable. If the videos resurface, I'll definitely post them back here ASAP. Sorry about that folks. I'm just as bummed as you are. If anyone else finds them, leave me a comment with a link and I'll check it out.
In summation, I like Team L Word... I like them a lot. Any team that lets me write me about Bette, Shane, Helena, Shane, Tasha, Shane, Jenny, Shane, etc. is a team I'm gonna support... braless. Sure, why not? Put on The Cliks, read Snarker's blog, and whip up a batch of vegan muffins. It's all about the ladies this season I say. Team L Word for the win!
