The Real L World, Cast


Just over a year ago, we said a sad so long to Showtime's groundbreaking series The L Word—a finale which, let's face it, left us dying for more.

Lucky for us, Showtime is bringing more of badass-chick goodness this summer, reality style, with The Real L Word, and we've got your exclusive first look at the sexy ladies.

If you thought those Real Housewives were racy, wait till you get a load of this—hello, it is the first gay-themed premium cable reality series! It's gotta be groundbreaking. Now get here and get to know the girls...

Described as "a rare, fly-on-the-wall look into the lives of attractive and successful L.A. lesbians," we'd like to introduce you to the lovely ladies of The Real L Word (clockwise from far left):

Tracy, 29: Smokin' hot film and television development executive Tracy is the newbie to the lesbian scene, and still struggling with her mother, who's having a hard time dealing with Tracy's sexuality. Throughout The Real L Word, we'll watch Tracy juggle career and a new relationship.

Whitney, 27: We're bound to see some drama with this one! The Hollywood special effects artist is a self-professed terrible girlfriend, saying she's "always looking for love, but losing to lust." Keep an eye on this street-smart wild child.

Nikki, 37: Already famous in her own right (she's a rep/manager/producer/industry bigwig, and publicly came out on The Oprah Winfrey Show!), Nikki is now engaged and planning her wedding to Real L Word costar Jill.

Rose, 35: Listen up, fans of the original L Word—Rose was actually the inspiration for Papi. This real estate advisor is a "lotharia" who wants to settle down, but can't seem to shake her old habits. She's currently in a loving relationship and has the full support of her family.

Mikey, 34: Also a bit of an L.A. celeb, Mickey is the founder of The Gallery Los Angeles and produces LA Fashion Weekend. She's also engaged and trying to plan a wedding of her own. We'll see if she can balance her fiancée, clients and the motorcycle she loves so much.

Jill, 33: This Jersey girl next door is engaged to costar Nikki and enjoys her career as a writer in Los Angeles. She, too, has the support of her family.

And there you have it. The Real L Word begins Sunday, June 20 at 10 p.m. on Showtime—will you be watching? Which lady are you loving already? Speak your mind in the comments below.
