Our very own series creator of Orange Juice in Bishop’s Garden, Otessa Ghadar, and two of the cast, Ellen Winter (Sarah) and Kristin Rogers (Tamsin) travelled to sunny Palm Springs, CA this past weekend, as OJBG was honored by being asked to participate in One More Lesbian’s “The Dinah Shore Weekend 2012”.
The girls got to experience some glamorous red carpet action on Friday at the White Diamonds Party.
Saturday included the main event, the “Battle of the Lesbian Web Series” hosted by Doria Biddle and Suzanne Westenhoefer. Ellen’s opponents for this battle included representatives from other popular web series. Her tough competition included Cherry Bomb’s Dalila Ali Raja and Gloria Bigelow, Anyone But Me’s Nicole Pacent, I Hate Tommy Finch’s Sami Grisafe and Shannan Leigh Reeve, Girl/Girl Scene‘s Laura Petracca, The Lovers and Friends Show’s Micaela Ramey, Unicorn Plan-It’s Haviland Stillwell.
It was a long battle for Ellen (Look at her going all out for the Lip-Synch-Off pictured above!), but Micaela Ramey ended on top (of the crowd apparently!) to win the event.
Many thanks are to be given to One More Lesbian as the sponsor for the trip and the invitation, and to SheWired for their wonderful coverage. There was a lot of merriment and fun to be had at the event and all three participants are so happy to have experienced it.
