'The Real L Word' Cast Teases More Nudity, Sex - TCA Report

The Real L Word castViewers will get to see a lot more of the ladies of Showtime's 'The Real L Word' in the last three episodes of their first season.

"You'll see several sexual situations and some nudity," said a sly Whitney Mixter.

Episode 7, in particular, "is epic," teased Rose Garcia.

'Real L Word' cast members Mixter, Garcia, Jill Goldstein, Mikey Hoffman, Tracy Ryerson, Nikki Weiss were joined by executive producers Ilene Chaiken and Jane Lipsitz on a panel at the Television Critics Association press tour. The group previewed the rest of the season, which Chaiken promised will bring some of the "shock value" that was a hallmark of her scripted series, 'The L Word.'

Mixter continues getting into romantic dilemmas. "Apparently, I have the power of the clam. It's a phrase we made up," she laughed. "I'm very flirtatious and I think girls like the unavailable. I'm open, I'm fun with girls and I think that caused me to get into sticky situations and that is what you see for the next three episodes."

In addition to the affairs of the heart, family issues crop up for the ladies as the season unwinds. Ryerson said that viewers will see more about her relationship with her mother, who's been less than supportive about her seuality. "[She's] from Puerto Rico and that's been a process for her. You'll see that transpire in the next few episodes," she said. "it was a lot easier to talk to my father about it -- he's a Brooklyn Jew."

The cast spoke about the experience of watching their lives unfold on screen. "It's very surreal to look at yourself and relive the past several months of your life, condensed," Mixter said. "You definitely learn a lot about yourself ... I don't regret anything, but i definitely sometimes cringe at my self and my own actions."

They were pleased by the show's reception and how it has raised the visibility of the lesbian community. "It's still not easy to get our stories told in television and film," Chaiken said. "but that being said, I definitely think it's progressing."

Fans have also sent them Facebook messages thanking them. "That makes everything worth it," said Mixter.

The ladies were asked about 'View' host Elisabeth Hasselbeck's recent comment that older lesbians only come out because they can't find a man.

"There's only one word -- ignorant," Garcia said.

Weiss added, "And really hurtful." Chaiken believes "This cast dispels [that idea]."

Mixter joked that Hasselbeck would likely cry and apologize to them on the phone.
