Come on, let’s laugh at Ilene
Are you ready for “Ilene Chaiken: The Parody”? The creator and executive producer of Showtime’s hit series “The L Word,” who wants everyone to know that she is the creator and executive producer of Showtime’s hit series “The L Word,” finally gets the spoofing she deserves. I’m pretty sure I snorted when faux Ilene says, “Ilene Chaiken doesn’t need tools, if you know what I mean.”
The video was created by what appears to be a group of very funny, very gay gals in L.A. Comic Karey Dornetto wrote the spoof and stars as The Chaiken. And, in case you watched the couch scene at the beginning and thought, “Hey, that girl second from the left looks familiar…” I am here to help. That is comic and actress Erin Foley who you may remember as the angry Rolling Stone fact checker from “Almost Famous” or as the smart angel in those Philly Cream Cheese ads. I Google so you don’t have to.
Anyway, the whole thing is hilarious and every lesbian and her cat should watch and laugh and watch again. Except maybe Ilene Chaiken. She undoubtedly would call it another example of “lesbians eating their own.” Me, I think it’s funnier than eating caviar on a cracker.
