Cybill Shepherd: One 'L' of a lady

101812__cybill_lThe Cybill Sandwich is back on the menu: Cybill Shepherd has joined the cast of The L Word. Finally, she will become the glamorous lesbian we all knew she could be, if that pesky Peter Bogdanovich hadn’t screwed things up for her. (I kid, Peter Bogdanovich, I kid! Please, don’t send me any more threatening telegrams or unsold laserdisc copies of Texasville.)

So… Cybill as a midlife lesbian. Totally works. I like the character (it’s an underexplored figure, the late-blooming bisexual) and Cybill’s got the right blend of high-WASP frigidity vying with freewheeling sexual ductility. The blogfather is a longtime defender of the leggy dame from Memphis. Personally, I’m neutral on her. [EDITOR’S NOTE: C’mon — Moonlighting?] But I’m all for a lady who’s not ashamed to admit she enjoys a good Manwich every now and again. 

Plus, the grueling TV schedule will keep Cyb off the street. Idle hands (and vocal chords) do the devil’s work.

    um, can that show cast any more ‘hasbians’? please…they put every character actor and ‘isn’t that the woman from *fill in the blank of some 80’s crap film* or wannabe musician in that show! They should focus more on the writing and fixing the bad hair syndrome on that train wreck. Hell, and I’m gay and most of my friends are and we stopped watching! zzzzz

    I’m loving the addition of Cybil to The L Word. She will add a lot of tension to the show with that stone face of hers. I’m wondering though if she’s going to be butch or femme?
