Inked: Any regrets?
Mixter: Never. I feel like regrets hold you back. If you don’t like an action or decision you made, acknowledge it, decide what you would do differently and then act accordingly next time; everything is a learning experience.
Bettencourt: You can’t have regrets, all you can do is learn from mistakes and use that as fuel to do things differently in the future.
Inked: Can we look forward to any Sara/Whitney rekindling this season?
Mixter: Hmmmm…there’s definitely a possibility.
Bettencourt: Well let’s just say the roller coaster ride didn’t stop on season two.
Inked: Actually, Radaronline.com reported that you two are “engaged and that Showtime cameras will be rolling for their nuptials...” just a rumor or is there some truth to this?
Mixter: Haha…I’m not exactly sure where this came from, but they seem to know some things we don’t. I guess you’ll just have to see!
Bettencourt: Hmm, I wouldn’t mind one day maybe being her fiancé but first she’d have to pop the question… Feel free to pass the message on to her ;)
Inked: Consider it passed Sara. Even though the show focuses on your love life, that isn’t the only passionate part of you. You’re both very passionate about your roles in the community.
Mixter: Absolutely! We are both very active within our community, speaking out for gay rights as well as LGBTQ youth. I actually was doing art therapy working with children prior to moving to Los Angeles and its something that I hold very close to my heart. We are also huge animal activists. We have worked on campaigns with PETA and intend on actually creating our own animal welfare organization in the near future.
Inked: Prior to the Real L Word you were both pursuing careers elsewhere, Whitney in special effects makeup and Sara as a dancer and stylist, are these things you continue to pursue or plan to pick up after the show?
Mixter: I’ve been so busy since things with the show have been taking off that unfortunately special effects has had to, for the most part, been put on hold. I do love the art and would totally resume it later on down the road though.
Bettencourt: Filming the show has been a project that has for the moment taken priority in my life. Yes I am still a dancer and a stylist these are two passions I will always pursue. I also have a few secret fashion projects in the works!
