We have all had our share of not-so-nice things to say about The L Word over the years. Our frustration mostly centered on the storyline (oh, Ilene) but for the most part, we all miss it, or at least some of its stars. I started watching the show a little late — late enough to not want to jump on the Shane McCutcheon bandwagon — but I could not help myself.
Now, I miss the skinny and scandalous Shane, and I’m not the only one.
In an interview with The Los Angeles Times, Katherine Moennig, now playing doctor on CBS’s Three Rivers, admitted to missing the role that made her every (OK, almost every) lesbian’s dream. She seems to be missing her former make-out partners as well — big shock there.
We loved the debauchery, too, Kate; but could have done without the whole Shenny situation. Don’t worry — it wasn’t your fault. When the paper asked who her favorite onscreen make-out partner was over the years, Moennig plead the fifth at first, but the truth came out later in the interview:

For one, the long locks she’s been sporting are not real:
Also, her character’s “hot temper” will be rearing its head soon:
I hadn’t watched the show before, but I am finally curious enough to check it out. You can read the full interview — including Kate’s “tramp stamp” discussion — with the Times here.
If you, like me, can’t get enough of Kate, you can lurk, err, follow her on Twitter.
