Romi starred in the Showtime series “The Real L Word”, which is a spinoff of the original scripted series “The L Word.” This reality show follows the lives of ‘Lesbian’ women in California and then later, New York. Me: When you primarily were with women (both during the course of filming the show and not) did you ever have desires to be with a man? Romi: I have desires with anyone I’m attracted too, lol.
I put lesbian in quotations because what that term means is not the same for everyone. I can’t have a label if I’m always changing and always evolving. Me: You were on a show called “The Real L Word” which is a reality spin-off version of the popular series “The L Word” ( The ‘L’ for our readers who may not know, stands for Lesbian). No, for the most part, I’m more attracted to women, and I love women but I can find men attractive and do find them attractive.
As you will see with Romi, the “L” in this series didn’t necessarily stand for lesbian in her eyes, but instead, for love. As an active member of the LGBT community for years, which did you think better represented queer women and why? Maybe at times, I want to sleep with them or even marry them.
For some, the “L” should have stood for “labels” because in season three, Romi’s sexuality and identity became hugely controversial; she married her one time ex-boyfriend Dusty Ray. Romi: Lesbian is appropriate for lesbians or queer or gay or whatever you want. Me: In season 3 of the Real L Word, you shook up the show by marrying a man!
Alice was bi, Tina went back to a guy, and Jenny started with a man. Sexuality and love are not just handed to you with full understanding. Anyone who wants to sit back and judge better be fucking perfect.
The Real L Word is an American reality television series aired on the cable station Showtime, where it premiered on June 20, 2010.
And later, 30-year-old Romi got married when she was 23. So, why is she getting hate mail with people calling her "traitor" and "slut"? She spent 26 years in prison for having murdered her husband whom she claims abused her for years.
But after four months, got a divorce and started having sex with women. Now, a free woman, Brenda continues to fight for the freedom of abused, women still in prison for having killed husbands and lovers.
With seasons 1 and 2 being successful, Showtime commissioned a third and final season, where there will be many new faces and a few recurring ones.
The third season premiered on Showtime on July 12, 2012.
