Our brilliant idea for Girls Talk this week? Get Ray Lemoine, best known for tangling with Paris Hilton’s little brother, to text about the episode with Lindsay Lohan. After all, the East Village freelancer, who now refers to that incident as a performance-art piece called “Lohan Thug,” still gets spotted with Lilo when he’s not throwing parties or getting arrested at Sundance. And who better than she to weigh in on the foibles of Hannah and her cronies?

Last night, Hannah quit Grumpy (again) and announced she will now be creating advertorials for GQThough she excels at the position and digs the free snacks, she’s bummed to discover her coworkers, once “real” writers, are stuck in the corporate vortex of steady pay and health benefits. Meanwhile, Ray (Ploshansky) and Marnie are watching episodes of The Real Housewives, screaming at each other over dumplings and having OK-looking sex. Adam is an aspiring actor now. Shoshanna is dating an idiot in order to stick to her 15-year plan.

Unfortunately for us, Ray (Lemoine) didn’t witness any of this because at the time the show aired, he was at a strip club. Further, Lohan had turned off her phone and/or was not responding to his texts. Ray did, however, send us some photos of “real girls”:



Hey, look — that last one is Lindsay! So… any chance she and Ray could go ahead and recap the show for us?

Despite our pleas, we didn’t hear from Ray all day — until this:

And so this week’s Girls Talk is busto. Join us next week when we enlist two new recappers. We’re thinking a couple of local librarians…
