Alice's Interrogation

Being that these interrogations have been so, um, random and nonsensical I totally forgot to post one yesterday. So here is Alice's interrogation, lets see if Lucy gets enough info for a conviction.

Why is Alice talking about

Why is Alice talking about her sexual, and gender identity, with Ms.Drool Worthy and the silent troll... oh yeah, who gives a fuck. Oups

Did anyone besides me notice that Alice said, "Women drive me crazy."

Something we can all agree on, don't you think?

For minnie down there. Be as honest as you want. If ilene produces another crappy show i'll be right there with you. For now though I don't see any point in it since I don't watch the tapes anyway.

PK ...

Did I or J, mention anything about the downfall of OC? (RIP)

Hi Xanadu, Yes, Ilene did

Hi Xanadu,

Yes, Ilene did talk briefly about the demise of OC. she gave a very controlled, guarded response to someone's question about OurChart. She said, and I'm paraphrasing, "OC was controlled by CBS, a large corporation, and it didn't work because we weren't able to build it from the bottom up the way we wanted."

That's it.

hey zara! Sorry you missed

hey zara! Sorry you missed it. it would have been cool too meet you. Grace I thought I saw you there. If not you have a twin. Smile

My first comment was more of my personal impression of the evening rather than a recap. Of course a lot more was discussed. Here's a few main points.

1. The Farm has been dropped and isn't an issue at the moment according to Ilene. They discussed how there may not be another lesbian show like the l-word for a while because"Its been done befor." and the execs don't see a need for one.

2. Jennifer hasn't watched any of the tapes and didn't know they were going to do that. She heard that Tinas was about "being raped by her sister" and she her body language suggested she thought it was ridiculous.

3. Ilene confirmed my theory that the purpose of the tapes was to answer fan
questions while setting up the spin-off.

4. Jennifer appreciated that working on the l-word was more of a "collaborative effort" than the patriarchal hierarchy that is such a
large part of many big mainstream productions.

5. Jennifer thinks its funny that some fans are convinced that she and Laurel Holloman are really lovers.

There was much more but most of it was old news. Great evening overall, even with the crappy rainy weather. Sorry for the typos but my pda is acting weird and no time to edit. xoxo - PK

Thanks for this info PK (and the post below). The one thing about producing a mass media piece is there's no hiding when it goes South (not that there's anything wrong with the South, Tex). Jennifer has great diplomacy skills and having kept herself away from the fan disappointment/criticism, she's a good person to support Ilene.

Do you know if the event last night will be telecast or played via Youtube or some other format where we can see it?

I think our dear, sweet

I think our dear, sweet Peacekitty is just far too caring and thoughtful to say anything negative about someone who she's met (or sort of met).

I agree PK that we shouldn't personally bash IC for the crap she's put out recently (I've said it on here before) but when you're an artist you put your work out there and you take the good comments with the bad. If your work is crap then it's acceptable for people to say it's crap. If you can't hack the criticism then you probably should look for another job.

peacekitty's picture

Guys, guys, guys!! I must

Guys, guys, guys!! I must not have explained myself accurately if you all think I'm telling you to not criticize Ilene's WORK. Come on everyone!! You've watched me take Ilene to task for her terrible writing for 8 weeks straight.

For the last time...I'M NOT SAYING "DON'T CRITICIZE ILENE'S CRAPPY WRITING."

I'm just saying SHE KNOWS she fucked up, so there's no need to sit and bitch and call her an "egomaniac" and a "an arrogant, talentless hack"...something I've seen repeatedly on every dyke site for the past year.

Good gawd it seems that it is a prerequisite here to be militant and bitch and criticize other people. When I try to be open-mided and kind I either find myself on the bottom of a dyke pile or the subject of criticism for being "naive and sweet."

1. I'm not naive. 2. I'm not always sweet 3. I'm a professional woman with two college degrees and I don't need a bunch of opinionated dykes telling me that I should be judgmental, negative and critical against Ilene Chaiken and others.

So what if she is arrogant (I don't even know if that's the case) and strong-willed and wrote a crappy final season of the L-word?? Don't all of us have our weaknesses?

That's all I'm saying.

I echo Minnie. PK, I like that you're sweet and I certainly never thought you were naive. In fact, as I was writing the above comment I was smiling at how sweet and forgiving you are. They're great qualities I would never criticize.

Yes, I did think you were saying we should lay off Ilene altogether and I'm sorry if I misunderstood your intent. Don't change. But understand that people on here think you're great.

hi everyone. I went to see

hi everyone. I went to see Ilene and Jennifer Beals at the Times Center in NYC last night. It was a very small auditorium and a really up-close and personal question and answer program very similar to Inside The Actor's Studio. Jennifer and Ilene answered a host's questions and then we were all allowed to ask them anything. Jennifer answered my question in the first two minutes so I did need to ask it.

Trust me...Ilene is aware that she made a mistake. She acted sweetly embarrassed whenever someone tried to bring it up. Jennifer was very candid and graciious. She was very frank about the fact that she wasn't happy with the final season...she wanted it to be positive and celebratory. She sweetly patted Ilene on the arm a few times and at one point said to her, "please abandon the Dark Side."

Ilene promised in a heartfelt way that if the make an l-word movie it will be celebratory and not negative.

Note to Jennifer Beals fans: She never reads the online blogs and forums because they upset her too much. The fans are really harsh. She did read the OC triathalon comments from fans and loved the sweet comments of encouragement.

Jennifer is a great listener and loves her fans. She genuinely belives everyone is important. She's very smart and passionate about things.

She and Ilene are good friends. The fans who are vicious to Ilene online don't know what they're talking about. She knows she screwed up, though she won't come out and say it so go easy on her.

Im no longer criticizing season 6 or the interrogation tapes. Its over and time to move on!

p.s.
TAEM, when jennifer cries onstage when she's talking it,s very genuine. she's not acting she's just really deep and emotional.

p.s.s.
lots of very hot woemen there! Smile

"The fans who are vicious to Ilene online don’t know what they’re talking about. She knows she screwed up, though she won’t come out and say it so go easy on her."

"go easy on her"....... P/K, I will continue to express how I feel.

When a television show is produced, and placed before the public, then the artists and their work, becomes open to criticism.... as well as the praise.

Of course IC knows she screwed up Kitty. Not because SHE thinks she did, but because others have shown her that she did. From the humiliation she's endured from Showtime .... to her very dedicated fan base being extremely vocal, others have made sure that she knows.

Kitty, I understand your passion concerning fairness, and I respect you for that... but we need to remember that no one has ever forced IC, or JB, to present themselves to the online community. They both have used it for professional, and personal reasons.

They 'voluntarily' placed themselves before a global community of hundreds of thousands. Given the numbers, there are bound to be negative...as well as, positive reactions.

It's unfortunate that IC chose to remain silent during the demise of Our Chart, as well as the conclusion of the L Words final season. It was her choice, as it should be. However, along with her decision to do so, a good majority of the loyal fan base responded accordingly...

The show is over, and the future is brighter for those who will be producing programming that represents our community. Unfortunately, I'm sure that most will remember the ending to the L Word legacy, and not it's historical beginning.....

Onward, and upward...... Wink

PK, thanks for the detailed update.

FYI, I am not done criticizing the Interrogation Tapes because they are worth criticizing.

Besides, I know all too well the allure of IC in person. I found her very charming when I met her last year. I think she is cool as a person. But I will be honest with my opinion about the work.
