"I want to share. That never happens told me that the next day. This truly like the happens a little bit. But jeremy had texted me. I went okay. So i went with a friend to this event. My friends afia. Who's really nice and cool immediately. Like right away. We started drinking our drinks. And i thought that it tasted really weird. And like i was kind of like like district doesn't taste right to me. And i take i took like one or two big sips and then she was next to me and we got pretty much the same thing and then she went downstairs and then i didn't hear from her for like twenty minutes and the next thing i know i check my phone. And she said i had to leave I suddenly got really really sick. And i'm like. Oh no and i kept asking. Do you think are. Are you know like least laced with fentanyl but like yeah so. I don't know what happened with that. I don't think they were. But so i was there by myself for the rest of the night and i was just chilling in just relaxing then the next day. Jeremy messaged me and said that there was a boy there that kept asking him about me and like asking him. What my like deal was what my status was. And jeremy was like i think she has. And that's jack got mad because he's like one of your friends doesn't even know if you're in a relationship or not really so anyway. I told him that unless it was. Ll cool j. I have a friend. But i couldn't believe it because i felt like sitting there by myself. I'll geeky sure someone else about me. That ever happens. I'm not a brittany. Were bands jump off stage. Yeah but so. This guy's tried to spike your drink as essentially. I don't know what's what's what's up. Third shave a high tolerance for the friend. I couldn't handle her like he's talked to your sense right. it wasn't somebody else. Writing is going to go home early. No no no. I was like calling her immediately and i called her like a bunch of times and then then the next day i had just happened to see her in an event and we still to this day. Don't know whether it was food poisoning or whether it was what was going on with that. Damn i know but it's very scary and weird our drinks we ordered our drinks and then they were like floating in the ethos for like fifteen minutes and then they brought them to us and then something i took two sips and i was just like i was almost feeling bad that i couldn't drink more and that's just like so funny. Maybe our intuition or whatever like i was almost like i really don't want anymore of this but i'm here for a while so i should probably keep sipping and then it was almost like a block against it and the next thing i know she went home. I know it's wild. So that's that's that i one other quick story to tell you like okay so then Okay so do you. There's a show called white lotus. I've heard of it okay. Good ball is western islanders on them. Yeah kind of with connie britton jennifer coolidge. You're going to die if like this will make your heart travel. So i really wanted to watch it. Okay and i told jack. Let's start at least episode one and see how we feel about it. And so i put on the first episode and he was busy for about ten minutes and then he said just do your thing watch it and then i'll come back and catch up after we're done and so he he'll catch up on. What what we missed so he came back and then i told him a little bit. I'm like you know i. I'm not good at following plots. But i think this is what happened and this and this and then he was like okay. You really don't understand that much. I'm like i think it's this thing. Until i was kinda telling him filling him in and then there was this scene where a guy is maybe a spoiler alert whatever and a guy like poos he like shits and someone suitcase but like the pool like really comes out like it looks like i mean. I'm very interested in how they actually did it because it comes out of his. But i've never seen like a human pooing before on camera but it's it's coming out so anyway so that was like a marketing scene for us where i was like. That's so weird. And then the first episode ended and we were kind of like you know we were left with a bunch of questions and it didn't really. I don't even know if. I like this enough to watch episode too. But we'll see it's kind of left me with a lot of questions so then Because i was so interested in how they did that scene. Jack looked up. I guess he typed in like white lotus defecating scene or whatever and it started out by saying in the season finale. This is what happens and this is what happens with. I watched the last episode. I didn't pay attention to what i was doing. I went by accident right to the episode finale and we watched the very last episode of the laws theories faulk. Would you know what was going on at that point. Just somehow piece together. I told you this is why this happened because of this. And then he's like that. I created like a whole. And i actually. I knew what was happening. And then somehow we watch the very last season and tried to make sense but it did it ridiculous ads. But i still don't know if anyone knows. I mean well now anyone who wanted to know he. I thought you were giving away six episodes that good although you were spoiling the first episode. But i mean if you're interested to know how he even got to the scene. Then i would say started episode one. I don't know actually. Because i never thought should start at episode one. Just just ahead. I think this is going to be my new thing now of the same way that i like to read the last page of a book to know how this is going to watch every series finale first and then see. Why would you not do that to see if it's actually worth. It was the dumbest thought process. Ever i don't even wanna talk to you know because what you're throw was an idiot i. It's it's insulting as a creative. Yeah i don't mind saying that. Because if i wrote a story and they'll up 'cause i'm building up i'm building characters and i'm building the world and i'm i'm sort of like injecting Tension and excitement and fear whatever it is right mystery and then what you're saying is like yeah. I don't really care about any of that. Tell me what happens in the end. We should suitcase. Great okay cool. I saw white lotus. Like no. you didn't and you fucking ruined ruined. I wrote it down. Ruined this person's artwork. Oh and now. I going around are suitcases. Basically now you're going around and ruining it for other people now and you're going to say like it's okay. It's like yeah you're saying it's okay. Jennifer coolidge that in libya episode. Your your assessment means nothing because you did not watch it you watch the last of. It's not fair it's not fair and so you should just shut up about it but hawaii people go to hawaii to surf the biggest wave. They don't just go there to ride the little one by one until they go straight for the big wave but that doesn't make any sense it makes sense to me. Okay yeah but Okay.

"And Joseph Edison lawyer writer and filmmaker is with me in the studio. To the T V show that generated more buzz than anything on our small screens For a while. Now the white Lotus It's a superbly written American dramedy set in a luxury Hawaiian resort filled with glamorous, rich, entitled and often clueless guests. But beneath that surface lies a deeper satire about inequality, class human nature, who we all are all that lovely stuff. One critic described it as a magnificently monstrous look at how the other half live. The costs are outstanding. Jennifer Coolidge, Connie Britton, Steve Zahn, Natasha Rothwell and the Australian actor Murray Bartlett, who so brilliantly plays the resorts manager, Armand He spoke to Jason Di Russo on ABC Radio National's the screen show about the series, his character and working with the creator and director Mike White. One of the great things about this character, I think is it's set up in the role that he has. He has such a public. Facade that he has to keep up as the manager of this hotel, but he's got this sort of Rich in a life full of demons, a lot of them connected to his addiction issues and stuff in it. There's sort of that interplay between the inner and the outer life and the sort of the niceties that we keep up with each other to sort of mask what's going under underneath, and he sort of represents what happens when You can no longer keep that mask in place. You know, there's a bit of a thematic ring resonance to it as well because this is also a show that invites the viewers to contemplate Hawaii, its history and who was here before the resorts and who is still here in the shadow of the resorts, and all of that is kind of interesting. And of course, there's an Australian. We can relate to. Those themes and interrogating ourselves of it. You know why we're here and and how we got here. But I mean, these things are surprise to most Americans. Do you think? Is it a surprise for them to sort of consider Hawaii or these kinds of islands as being You know as having this history of colonization and all the rest of that. It's an interesting question. Let's also ask America because I get the impression that it's not something that's on a lot of people's minds. I mean, particularly like the first Nations, people in the in the U. S. It's not often part of the conversation, which is really frightening. You know, we talk about the generations of people that have come afterwards. And you know, particularly in terms of slavery, how awful that was. And the legacy or the continuing sort of unfolding of what that is created in this country. But the awareness even of The first Nations people here is it doesn't feel like it's on the radar much and I think it's such a wonderful sort of aspect of this show. And it's something that is close to Mike White's heart in terms of he spends a lot of time in Hawaii so very plugged into the history of Hawaii and Hawaiians and was very mindful of that in this in this show. Tell me about my quite what's your experience of working with him, especially given that he has such control over this? Show, and it's so much his creation. I suppose. I don't know. I think he's a genius. Basically, he started writing this show in August last year, and we started shooting in October, which is just a phenomenal feat. That's insane. I didn't realize that his incredibly talented and fast into waiving all these very pertinent themes in a way that I think Is not always subtle, but it's definitely not banging you over the head with it. It's just so clever and funny, So also he's a really good man. He's just a kind, funny, generous, loving human being and he creates on set a feeling of fun and play. But there's something amazing about having someone like that at the helm, who has created written and is directing. Because you're sort of at the source. You're at the creative source all the time. And, yeah, I just I trust trusted him. There's something in the white lotus, which are quite like this sense of certain characters, sort of fighting against the inevitability of certain structures of oppression and so forth and power. Kind of circling back around. It feels like it would have been a very political set to be having lunch on And you know where people discussing politics a lot on set and the state of the United States. I mean, it was hard not to As we were shooting right through the election in the United States, So it was. I mean, it was It was everywhere and in all of our minds, and it was very therapeutic in a way to be working on a show that is holding a mirror to some of the aspects of society that dysfunctional in terms of valuing some people, other over other people and some people with power and privilege, wielding it in ways that is not beneficial to everybody. It was kind of great to be able to Have these conversations, the characters, uh, either grappling with or talking about these things. The actor Murray Bartlett, talking to the screen shows Jason Darrow. So on ABC Radio, National Joseph Addison lawyer When you heard him speaking there about how Mike White had written that projects a rapidly and got it together. Did you think for a second? That's insane, Or do you write that quickly? It is insane. Um, absolutely, especially to write something that, um, on that scale, um, but sometimes it depends. You know, if if things come to you, it can be very quick and when it's less immediate, it takes more time. So the stories and perspectives of First nations people aren't often at the forefront of American television and film. Do you think that shows like this can change that? I think so. I think it's very important. I mean, we're if we look at the world over the last year, it's become even more important that lots of different voices and lots of different stories get told. And so I think also, I mean, has he mentioned the fact? Obviously, he lives in America. And if that's something that is not on the consciousness of, say, your average American, then shows like this can only help. You know for them to think about, you know, other kind of stories and other experiences that also need to be examined. You're listening to the arts are with me. Niki Beattie on the BBC World Service Comedian Nish Kumar has created a special place for himself in British political comedy, his television show. The MASH report takes a satirical look.

"Another. I'm pretty line perspective. But it's it's fun. I like it. Yeah you it's okay to watch the episodes individually but if you want the full arch story of like him trying to like finally finish like as album Definitely like watch the whole thing. And the last finale was pretty good So pop for dave season two on fx and. I was also watching vivo on netflix. And it's animated film starring lin-manuel rhonda zoe's donna. And it's it's cool. It's is very fine. It starts off with this street performer. In cubo as animal. There's confusion as to what the animal is in the movie but like as low monkey or a ferret someone okay and like he's a the musicians in 'em and this animal the older gentleman and then they'll generally gets this letter from this. I bake shop like artists who lives in miami. And she's like whole so so. Please come to miami for last performance. A one perform with you because they used to perform together. And so it's supposed to be the journey of this. This this man going to go meet his musical partner but he sadly passes away and so the monkey is pretty much taking that adventure on the to himself interesting. Yeah and you might meet. Cocoa meets soul. Yeah actually it sounds like coca yeah kinda cocoa meat so So it's really cool. The music is great and bobbin vivo on number six so i started a show this week i mean barely. We watched the first episode on. Hbo called the white lotus. I'm not sure how i feel about it so far. The first episode was really interesting. But i still at that point where i have no idea where the show's going so i think i'm going to give it like the three episode. Right it's got alexandra. Daddario steve zahn jennifer coolidge. Connie britton and it's basically a bunch of wealthy white families who travelled to this beautiful hotel on an island very secluded and kind of just like the demands that they make the privileges that they have And then you see it from their perspective and from the perspective of the actual hotel staff who have to cater to their every whim so far. It's definitely satirical. It's really interesting. It opens with a body being loaded back onto the plane when everyone's flying back to the united states but we don't know whose body it is so right now. I'm gonna hot potato it because i feel like it has some potential to have some social commentary like.

"Into every shot. She's like drowsy constantly. Though by the way. Natasha rothwells performance then became sort of the surprising. Focal point of the finale. For me i really was most invested in her character at the end. I think yeah. I think that there was an interview. Mike white did with vulture to where he was just talking about. This was how he was telling this story. Just because I think people were expecting him to give sort of a enlighten of storyline. Where you know that was amy jellicoe like fighting for like justice constantly and trying to unravel pieces And i think he says that like a show like that would be too much like trying to play to the zeitgeist now and i think maybe you know the reception to that. Maybe it's just gone into his head. Because i feel like enlightened as much as it almost seems in line with like set of like internet social justice now like that's not that show at all and i felt like enlighten was a show about people especially her trying to make herself a better human being You know i really connected with that part of that character. And i thought it always went to a lot of surprising emotional places and ultimately i just feel like i wasn't surprised emotionally a lot during the white lotus is all but it was fun ultimately who was surprised that murray was the one who died like doesn't that feel so right like it had to abandon him and paralleling that who is surprised that rachel stayed with shane briant nobody. She made the decision that she had already made got four. Why would the show starts with her. Having a conversation with him that would turn most people away so the fact that she would stay through that seemed to indicate all right she can Bear a lot of him. yeah Before we wrap on that. I want to say that one of the most actual surprising moments of the series which was a great character. Moment i feel was when she approached connie britton and was like i wrote about you and that w- explaining it and then connie britton was like. Oh no you're a shitty writer. That was a completely surprising moment but also felt so in character for both of them. And i wish. I wish i had had more scenes like that. In the finale. Also that feels very keyed into how mike white understands the internet to just the conversation about the kinds of pieces. Alexandra dairy had been writing. I feel like that's kind of thing that might were at one or two dismissive jokes on other shows whereas they kind of really got into the specific nature of the fluff piece. She had written. And i was pleased to realize the show was literate in that. Yeah i mean even shout out to making relatable jersey characters not having an older character even use the term gen z. or millennial and have dumb jokes like that. So all right white lotus was not quite excellence for me what's right below excellent during cosby cleanness term. Didn't we quite excellent. what were we talking about. I'm embarrassed to say. But i think stranger things season wine things season one was. Why excellence was president. It was a different time. I agree it was white pastiche excellence. I would argue white voters. It's white excellence but if you want maybe a different term we could say white proficiency. That doesn't work would need it to be done. Understood the white assignment. All right. we're back lewis.

"That is out of pocket even than most but yeah so paula. You know she was the thing that made watching this show bearable and then she does something. At the end of the series that is completely unbearable. Some people might argue the most immoral act in the show and people got mad at her and people are still really matter and they're just like as a woman of color like how could you send this like native hawaiian to jail over. The shoe is such a great examination of the differences or the space between what it is that people do and how they act what it is that they think and what they're know records show we all talk one way we all really righteous though we all do some shit that doesn't like at all align with you know the politics that we proclaim to subscribe to a love that because you dow we've talked about this before you know like especially on the internet people love to get into specific like binary of like well take for instance even like the easy way question you know of like Would you call the police. Like a black person is funny in theory right and everyone on the internet is like oh you know like yeah. You can't call black people like doing this etc but it's like okay if a man is breaking in your home with a gun about to kill you or a knife you know like if you're pressed in this situation what are you going to do and i think a lot of people on the internet tried to create like x. Men danger room games for life of what they know that they would do. When you know that if any of the like fake scenarios people come up with on. The internet are not how they're actually going to act in real life. We saw that we cove it the way that people talk about rules and what they should be doing and how other people should be doing. And then you've seen a year like you see a friend of the party like when it's gordon. Tina you're doing this. It's like everyone acts differently when this stuff happens so i think it's very silly to have paula sitting there thinking. Well you know like. I can't get a native islander arrested by getting him involved in a crime you know. She's not sitting there and thinking how people are going to react online or morally to what she's trying to accomplish. I do want to thank both her. And city sweeney though specifically for their facial reactions throughout the entire show. I mean i'm not saying. I'm somebody when i watch. Tv show. i need to see my reactions soundboard exactly or whatever but man just the gift worthiness of looking at connie britton with like an eyelid. Moving the grimace dropping. It's just like really subtle but like harsh acting. That i think are maybe the most fun acting moments in the whole show actually even though people get lots of great character revealing monologues etc. I would agree. And i think i also want to talk about fred. Hatching occurs plays. Quinn and quinn ends up. Being in the finale sort of the symbol. he's like melancholic. Symbol of escape right. I think that the three of them him sydney and brittany are kind of like this incredible triptych of what gen z. Actually is like gossip. Girl is totally didactic. Doesn't have the characters like actually speaking like people and we're not we're not talking about through the almost like a non verbal or like half verbal performances. We just got so much fuller of portrait. This generation especially because they're interacting with people of different generation like connie. How about watching people think is so much fun. And i think that's a key part of this show that is extra compelling is even when it's not you know people clean it doesn't have enough plot or there's not enough going on but honestly it's always giving you something to look at whether it's somebody giving you know a sarcastic response or just thinking for an extra second which is such a pleasure to see an such a clue as we know you love watching white think of as he entire reason you sharp objects of sitting in cars thinking that board asked how the idea of old tears on their face. Not even utah. They've been crying for a while but or cape blanchette. The world's slowest smiler which is my favorite thing about her anyway. But that's i think we specifically got a lot of that and this show which is a great entry and what i will call incompetence vaudeville like veep and succession discuss though as much as we all seem to be fans of the show. Should we discuss some of the criticisms regarding kind of like the paradox of making a show about people who are you know terminally tied to their wealth and setting it on the island of hawaii. Eric there during right when so many native hawaiians had been telling tourists not come because they were like literally bringing infection to their home and there were some like music drops and the show that are outside of crystals amazing creepy eerie score. That felt a little leg playing this like kind of hokey song that everyone associates with hawaii. They they were just a few moments where i was like Mike white's not like completely confident or not completely owning more self indicting himself as a creator and lai chi also is a character that i just thought was done no justice he has no. I don't even mind that he disappears. It's in keeping with the tenor of the story. But his backstory that his family owned the land and the hotel was on. It was just like really try. Really simple and i think that there's a you have to figure out okay. These people can't be at the center of the story right. I just haven't created the show for that to happen. The how can i give them enough depth that even in their smallness they are like equally contending with the largest of someone like tanya or the other characters and. I thought that that wasn't done. I think is sort of goes to sort of just like mike white's telling of the story and just sort of how es cultures have been entrenched in american popular culture. Because like even if he was wanting to like do a good thing here i did agree about the music. It constantly felt like i was watching like hawaii five like the original. You know when there'd be like sunday mysterious happened on the island and you hear this sort of music. Even the theme song is which is a banger. But you know like so much of the music feels like when you're watching like betty davis in the letter and you start hearing oriental music. When like like the asian woman shows up to curse her. It felt very much that and get not even just disappearing the girl disappearing who gave birth in the first episode to and i get that i want to say that i feel that you can't have it both ways if you're mark white like in one way the show doesn't have to be commenting specifically on white people in trying to tear down like this colonialist but then if you also want to say that the point of the story is that these white people are taking over and then so that's why the other characters dropped out then it just work for me and that's when i sort of meant that it felt unfulfilling to me in the end because i know that he likes john. I've talked about this on the show before like he had that two thousand fox show that got canceled. Pasadena with dana delany. That was like a primetime soap. You know like we know that he likes that kind of stuff. And i felt like as a show with like a mystery in the beginning and that was soapy and having characters interact. It's sort of just went to an ending that you sort of expected especially like natasha. Rothwell and jennifer coolidge. I think everybody saw where that's going at the end we saw. She was going to be hurt when she changed her mind about doing the spa. So i was just thinking like why not as a writer even if you're getting us to that conclusion and that's what you want to say. Why not surprise us a bit more in that story. Yeah i will say. I think a lot of the strengths of the show are that what occurs. I don't know that. I always expect it. But in retrospect it feels inevitable feeling. I like period. The movie that comes to mind is you've ever seen two days one night with marian courtyard. She's fighting to save her job and what happens at the end of the movie. I wouldn't have written that way and it feels true to life. And i feel like that is true about a lot of what happens in this. Show that said the lease believable. Part of the show is tash rothwells character. Just signing onto this like hokey person you know who has never once credible just as like a a human being that you would believe anything from you know..

"Accords was rolled onto the plane in the premier. Take start at rolling on twitter. People started saying who was dead. People were talking about whether or not. This is a satire. Whether or not it's a self-aware take-down of colonialism or is it actually just a product of colonialism itself so white lotus. What are your feelings about it. Can i just say that. I hate that binary thinking i don't like binary put me down rocking binary potus which is to say i watched that show on in one fell swoop because i had the screeners. 'cause i'm really important because i'm a tv critic and the show is actually not telling you to watch it as a satire right like there are certain satirical notes when you see the first few episode you meet some characters who feel like caricatures and then mike why is he always says this affection kind of arises right and you start to see for instance tanya mcleod ten for coolidge est character as someone with an inner life and so on and so forth and so i just got a little frustrated when maybe it's not frustration. I'm certainly interested in the idea of this shows matter relationship to colonialism. But i think it's kind of like a show at the end of the day and it's not supposed informing this takedown action or mechanism or appraising of the white liberal imagination. I think it's just like a little bit smarter than people are. Maybe diluting it to be online. But that's just my thought It's also to like i guess. The suspense of the show is the sense that all the characters will probably interact in one way or another and so i found myself kind of guessing like oh how will jennifer coolidge. And this kid. Interact or what you're kind of guessing like how these Storylines will intertwined. And i feel like that's more were. My head is at than actually met a narrative. Just because these people are so unpredictably in some cases self absorbed but also occasionally showing. Or whatever that i'm predicting where the explosions will happen. More than i'm having really anything smarter to say about it so it's more like a reality show you know. I'm i'm more thinking like. How will these people like blow up each other. I mean the connection to a reality show is one of the important pieces of the puzzle mostly because mike white loves survivor and has been on it and he brings it up like it's just i ask. Every time he does. He famously came in second on. The david versus goliath season to nick and i found the series almost sort of like he was just writing survivor. You know he wrote it in a yeah. It was him picking like a tropical location and he just loves characters. The one thing. I love about mike white's shows is that like he likes wacky. Sort of like you said almost satirical characters that sort of reveal themselves like the heart behind them even the awful characters towards the end. And i sort of feel like our mind was representation for himself and him sort of like battling with jake. Lacy character. Shane the entire time was sort of him replicating his survivor time and like shane. Winning at the end was sort of like nick beating him. But that's sad. I really liked this gay character in it. I thought that he was really interesting. And something we hadn't seen sort of lake. Murray bartlett getting to play a gay breaking bad. But i will say that i'm not worried about the whole like is it satirizing or like taking down white people because too many people expect shows with white cast to do that now as if every white creator needs to be invested in creating a show that is going to skewer whiteness in general i mean just what succession everyone as a show. I found a little bit wanting. I enjoyed the show. But if you even watch it as just a show. I feel like every beat in every episode in every story was eighty percent predictable. That's really interesting. I have been thinking of the white lotus. As a very ornate experiment and mike white serve because he's a really fascinating creator because this is someone who likes school of rock dawson's creek. He has made some of the most mainstream of mainstream television and film and people like at the same time. Don't really know who he is. People who aren't pop culture obsesses and then he's made shows like enlightened which i mean bring it back on it. It's the turn assange. It's the perfect time that's a show. Where like part of the reason why it was cancelled was that people didn't really watch it and so i think the white lotus is ending up ensnared even in this strange attention economy were mike wipes his shows or his films like that are much more subtle or cambier feel more art house are now getting an attention that they weren't maybe necessarily created for this so clearly an idea that he had. Hbo approached him. he wrote it. He directed all the episodes shot. It in one location four seasons in hawaii and it has both the fortune in the misfortune of coming out during a time where people there paris social relationships to television is off the charts. Because that's kind of all they've been doing for a year and a half like i've been watching people sort of get really angry at these characters. Paula is an example of someone. People aren't talking roth while now not politics. Oh our first of all you know you know. I watched so much tv. That i'm like what i watch it. I just be like oh you know. Paula was over there talking to connie britton. I remember care to by the actor's name first name well by the way this show is like a prime example of await. That's the characters name like when you said that jennifer is character named tanya. I'm like are you sure. That's it is tanya. Wow i mean going back to big little lies. I feel like know has the cast name right and renova. Renata and reese witherspoon. yeah. I love that slippage. You know like mike white really understands white women. He just picks women that people already have so much like spiritual investment in. And when you're watching tanya you're like but that's also jennifer jennifer heading out something like a revenge fantasy for the way that she's been sequestered by hollywood and the past thirty years like i'm read so into it. You know and he knows that he has me right. I was going to say. I want to know. If molly shannon has some residual rage which i believe is channel pretty well through this character. I wouldn't say it's perfect casting. There are pro actresses who do better the thing of like. Oh i'm evil. I'm leaning in getting in your face but how bad a personnel. But molly shannon just has a very inherent quietness. That makes the character a little bit more interesting. Even though i don't know if i love the casting anyway. I adore molly shannon but i agree. I did not like her in that role. It's sort of didn't jive with who i felt. His mother was supposed to be based on how he was acting but What were you saying about paula. Well so paula is. Someone who read hearing is maybe like too strong of a term to use but people became really attached to her when they were watching the first episodes because she felt like a surrogate for the viewer one because she was non white too because she seemed to be not as wealthy as mossbacher family. Who's kinda like a cross between like goop and the guy who lady. Ceo britain does she. Was sarah sandberg asfaw like theories that steve zahn was going to die. Shell standards knows.

Hbo called the white lotus. That's made by mike white who directed chuck and buck and then sort of more famously. Although i sort of niche audience The laura dern show enlightened that was on hbo and was canceled prematurely and for the people who it was a real blow. It sat at a very luxurious tropical island resort and it's sort of focuses on three groups of very rich people like a family that includes steve zahn and connie britton and their two kids jennifer coolidge actually playing like a full human being for a chain good part for her jake lazy and alexandra. Daddario play a newlywed couple. And he is so good at being so awful and he's played a lot of string of really nice guys in things obvious child in the office and he's just so good at being violent horrible like an enlightened ban an entitled man baby really good and they sort of come into conflict with the staff. And it's it's really interesting. Because i just reviewed it too and i didn't give it an entirely positive review but i think it's really fascinating show and like the first couple of episodes. You're just like oh. This is kind of like succession on vacation like there's that like chewing of social interaction. Where like it's really easy to like in a good way to just really think about it. Like where's everyone coming from. And like what is the power dynamic. Here mike it's awkward. It's like on the border of cringe and then there's also like beautiful swimming pools like it. Just sort of frothy rich people. And then there's sort of like this upstairs. Downstairs elemental though the downstairs element is like a little underdeveloped but i thought it was like i thought it was interesting and i didn't totally land this ship. I thought it was touching on some really interesting things on and the first couple of episodes like before you realize it's headed we're really good and i would recommend it. I think it's i think it's a good show. Well i thank you. Because i've been thinking about what's in it but i wasn't sure but now i definitely will. I want to recommend also show on. Hbo max so Promise coordinates atrial have only Which is legendary which is a reality competition. Show set in the world of ball culture in this not ballroom dancing but ballroom in You know the the queer families the host of verse archie. Insulin hits just a good reality competition show they do try and give you a little bit of background on the people who are competing the people who are in the various houses and they are pretty much exclusively kind of tragic backstories but they don't overplay that it just kind of makes them real people instead of just kind of faceless competitors and the truth is that ballroom was always about it was made for a competition like it's people dividing into houses groups led by mothers or fathers and competing in categories like it was always meant to be a competition show and it really works one. Some of the judges are really annoying but some of them are divine. It's just a great fun show and You will end up dancing. There's no doubt that you will try duck walking in your home when you watch the show so legendary.

Don't come home till you figure out whatever it is you need to figure out but i really hope that's not just you being some facebook celebrity. Get your picture taken with people. Are you walking for jaden. Joe if you're walking for j you let david much wanted to come. Please welcome back. Connie britton joy has first question. Hi connie so nice to see you again getting too so we were talking yesterday and hot topics about valerie. Bertinelli who is fighting back against these twitter troll to fry who shamed for gaining weight and she was so upset about it. You know you've played strong. Female characters urine shows like friday night. Lights and nashville. And you say that you've made it your goal to counteract what women are supposed to look like onscreen that is not easy to do and show business. The maintenance of a skinny body seems absolutely on top of the list. So how are you doing this. Well you know. I just i i feel like my migrate joy and the opportunity that i've had over the years is to Depict women in very authentic ways close to the way we really are as as i ran depending on what the role is and as i personally get older as we all do i you know i'm feeling the effects of that. I'm doing it in front of the camera. You know. I have all of the impact of hollywood and you know the social media thing that i try to stay away from as much as possible but you know i just feel like if i can continue to convey the idea that we are are authentic solves our most beautiful selves And whatever that looks like and the more we can do to explore what that is each of us individually as women. The more powerful and i think the happier will be and and a lot of that has to do with walking out all that Outside noise because the outside noise takes away from what are true voices so you know. I just keep trying to do that and yeah it's not easy. You know i keep. I keep having people's lately are always you know what i love about you. I love that you're not doing anything to your face like i. That's a compliment. i loved. I love that you just letting yourself age. That is just a messing could free. And i'm like yeah thank you. I think at world needs to stop acting like women. Aging is an act of bravery. It's just what happens. But i think it's so toxic that people talk that way to women. But that's just me i your new movie joe. Belva do by the way they do it our whole lives. It just takes different forms depending on what iru decade. You're in also your one most beautiful woman in the world so people were saying that crap. Do you imagine what the rest of us feel like. I mean anyway. I talked to you about this whole show but we have to promote movie which is amazing. Your new movie joe. Bell is based on the true story. Of an oregon. Dad played by mark. Wahlberg who walks across the country to raise awareness about bullying after fifteen year. Old son jayden who was gay. Commit suicide you say that. The film teaches us how to be better allies house. Oh and how did you approach playing jason's mom lola. Well what i love about this film is that it's it's really it's it's really about redemption and what the film shows is people who have genuine misunderstanding about their own son and the fact that he's gay and is due and the community doesn't accept him and his and he is bullied and even his own father doesn't understand and what so we get to go on that journey in the film and watch through. His father's is joe. Bell played like by mark wahlberg. We get to watch him. Start to understand and discover and educate himself and not be afraid of who his son was. Authentically and i think by audiences being able to see that and experience it on this beautiful journey and the storytelling in this film. My hope is that we will open a lot of people's eyes and create a lot more understanding for people who just don't know any better opening their eyes and hopefully their hearts as well Thank you for doing this film because this telling these stories is so important. Because they're kids like that across this country that are watching right now But you're also starring in a new. Hbo limited series called the white lotus a social satire about the darker side of a group of wealthy vacationers in staff at a tropical resort. Now shot this series in hawaii during the pandemic which is not the worst place in the world to be holed up. What was that light. Well it was. I mean it was. It was fantastic and we felt a little bit while a lot sort of spoiled slash guilty because it was really right in the midst of the pandemic and really everybody had been locked down. We had all been live down and and in fact in maui at the four seasons which is where we were. We were also locked down so if there was ever an opportunity for the four seasons in maui to be to be locked out on that was it but it was just so beautiful and Rebel really fortunate and The cast really bonded and The scripts are fantastic. Mike white wrote and directed it and he's just an incredible voice and a very astute observer of human behavior. And so i think i think audiences are really gonna love the show. It's funny it's biting. it's jarring. It's a little too recognizable Yeah it's fun but the show is actually great. I've watched it. And it's it's all those things i to ask you this. You know this past year was a difficult one for a lot of people not only because of the pandemic of course but because of the racial reckoning going on in our country you are a single mom adopting you adopted your son from ethiopia ten years ago. What has your experience been raising black sun during this time. And what kinds of conversations have you been having with him. Well it's been Complicated and As if it.

"No, This is pretty much my commute to school and back. I'm not doing much off roading these days, so this is the same problem as the other tire, right? In the spare, which is not a Pirelli scorpion. Exactly. Despair was the best of the You know, got awful ball tires. The original four. So I didn't worry too much about that one. But they didn't see any similar markings on on the non Perelli tire. Um To be honest, I don't remember that part. I was kind of indignant. Um, but that could have blown for a different reason. It could happen. Yeah. Will you accept that where I would accept that. Two weeks later, the third tire went down also in the back. Also one of these tires that was a replacement for one of the tires that have gone down before, so it was only about a week and a half, two weeks old. Here's Here's the clues that I have is to this. The tire people think I'm crazy. They they think I just want were exciting with them to have done that same philosophy myself, But it's uh, In any case, it's always been in the back. And all the tires except this despair because I never got that one checked out. Have these, uh, these circular abrasions. It looks like somebody took a you know, like a drill with the buffer on it and kind of went around the tire. Are they circular or they the circle? Not complete The circle is not complete. Sure. What a question. Yeah. Great question, huh? Only you had a reason for asking it, Uh, It was one of the things I should. I should probably mention which I didn't want to. And that's that These tires are slightly wider love slightly larger than the ones that really belong on the truck, right? Not not hugely larger, but It doesn't take much now. Yeah, Somehow these tires the the inner wall of these tires is coming in contact with something. I don't know what that is either the inner fender the springs. It's and it's a It's a Maybe a dynamic situation where it happens when you're corner when the thing is loaded with with cargo or people, you hit a bump. Or some such thing is causing something If you look, you will carefully you will see something if you take the tire off that the tire is hitting. It's the tires. Improper size that is causing the problem. I'm surprised that the tired guys, right, that's notice this. Well, I'll tell you why. Because they sold you these tires because they didn't have the right size. And they said, Because they do this all the time you're going to say Look, I want the 14 P 2 35, So we don't have those. We got p 289.5, but they'll fit And and it turns out that they often do, but sometimes they don't and if there's not much clearance allowed in the original design Then it's possible for the tired to come in contact with part of the suspension, uh or or part of the body, and that's scores away some of the rubber and eventually causes the Tired of fail. Unfortunately, they're going to have to give you for new tires. Well, the ones in the back and the front may be all right if you don't ever rotator, but I think you really want the four properly. So I would like them to be all the same. Yeah, and I did have a long conversation with the tire guys and assured me Oh, no problem We put these on. It's not going to be an issue. Well, interestingly don't thing that bothers me and I hesitated to bring this up. Yeah, I hesitated. And I have a question for you to But go ahead because we're not true with you, Ivan. I didn't think so is the unusual behavior of the spare. Well, let me describe the spare to you. The spare was on its last legs. I mean, I really should have probably about five tires. But the spear did not have this. This Sure he doesn't know. Brazen. Look, No, I really I really I'm hoping not so covered in oil and hefting my entire iron and I just sort of stopped him That could fix it. So I'm not. I'm not sure you must have been teed off by that point. A little bit. Yeah, There are two other things questionable things. What is It's unusual for a tire, which rubs against something to go flat. Uh huh. I mean, when they fix the flat, What did they do? They said they were able to pass you from the inside. They patched the sidewall. They passed the sidewall. You can't do that. I don't know. I don't know either. So I'm confused about that. And the second thing I'm confused about is why my brother asked the question about whether the circle was complete. Sounded so sure. Yeah, Yeah. All right. I thought you had something there. No, because I do have something but to s to Turkey even discuss sure I've been thanks for calling. Good luck to appreciate it. Bye bye.

Is there the Lex Luther Luther of button nose bat and obviously you and it looks like you're gonna sneeze. Everybody is everyone does that back up thing like, cover your mouth and all of a sudden bats fly out of your nose, and it kills the the villain. Like that doesn't work. I mean, what you just said, makes perfect sense. Well, you know it's coming, though. If you know the sneezes, is it Do you have the sneaky 12 or you just thought of a sudden I'm having conversations just like that. But if you're up against the villain who doesn't know that you have the bat nose thing, then? Yeah, it gets around, though. You look eventually it procedure go. Here comes that bad chick.

You know how much I love Hawaii? So I know you love Hawaii. Is that just because it's set in Hawaii, you love your why I wanted to watch it. Unfortunately, that's not enough to save it and to make it good, but it's got a great cast. Connie Britton, Steve Zahn, Jennifer Coolidge, Jake Lacy, Alexandra Dario, Molly Shannon and and some other people and just the tone from you, Molly Shannon. Molly Shannon. Yeah, that's an L Molly Shannon s a demolition. Yeah, that's the one and the same interest and I, The tone for me was just a little weird. It goes between kind of dark, satirical comedy, But then it gets a little spiritual, and it didn't really work for me. But I did read some other reviews where it did work for a lot of other people. So maybe I'm off on this one. I don't know, but you know you can check out that could be its objective Sunday night..

Jane Krakowski is NOT dating the MyPillow guy
"Jane kiosque is dating. Famed architect david rockwell. Not the my pillow guy. She basically was like. I'm dating someone now. I have to tell everyone who is. Because i've to fight this information and a half to say we've got a few calls we did. If there's a few sources that we have now that told us that i'm pretty sure that's it was fake news and now i'm kind of like confused as to why the daily mail published it like what was their kind of weird. Wha how does it benefit them. Because now he's suing them for like seventy five thousand dollars or something. That's like defamation. But as another person called in and explain what you've explained to me in the past where it's like you can't say that it hurt you unless it was actually harmful gossip to you. He's claiming that it was harmful and has specific details that are harmful to him. But you can't just be like. I'm suing because he said i'm in a relationship. It has to be harmful to your reputation in a way right. I mean again not a lawyer but it just seems like it's going to be if not hard entertaining to see how someone claims that being rumored to be in a relationship with a pretty universally beloved celebrity people by and large light car. How is this defamatory for a rumor. Maybe daily mail was just like we know that this is the case. We're going to take the chance and just go for it even though this probably might be falsely might get sued in this guy's very rich and he has enough money to sue us if anything. It's damaging for her reputation to dating him and she's seems to have laughed at off based on her statement but is she laughing it off when they're leaking actual boyfriend to the fix clearly serious. I mean there's clearly there's like strategy here like why do we give a shit who jim krause. Geus dating at this point. Who is this guy who literally who cares. And that's what she's been working with this whole time. Basically who cares. I love this lead. Though a bizarre report that actress page six complaining about the daily mail. It's like we're all. These are both i arms of the same tree branches of the your your cousin first cousin. Although i always complain about my cousins. So i get. that's true. A bizarre report. That actress. Jane creek hausky had an affair with my pillow guy. Mike lindell was fiercely. Shot down now page. six can exclusively revealed. The thirty rock star has been sharing more elegant pillow. Talk with famed architect david rockwell. It truly is do you. And i bet what happened which i think is just so funny to me. I bet page six already knew this information but no one cares jim hausky stating he just an architect. I bet jane's people were like well. You just publish. Jane is dating a now. it's relevant or they just were like oh pages like we actually know her boyfriend is. Let's just publish it again. Because it's relevant. You know what i mean. It's funny because the news is coming off as like. Oh look who. She's dating now. It's like she's been dating this guy for like what three years two year like for a significant amount of time since two thousand and nineteen according to this okay so enough time two years one year basically. And they're like let's like time to drop this this news now that she's relevant. I just think that's so funny because otherwise why would we have this. Like who care. And i would believe that because they're proof even as they as you scroll down. It's like she's been pictured with this guy many times so it's just like she's not really trying to hide a relationship. It's just not i don't really care with that. And now that this other thing came out they care he seems fine. Whatever like it doesn't surprise me. At all his stuff is cool. Like i went to his website rockwell through dot com rockwell like a fancy various steamed architect. Who designs really cool like spaces. It's not like house. It's like public spaces and businesses in school. I don't know it looks like a fancy pants architect itself. Funny

"I had to such a go into myself, sort of rummage around judges there and think we'll locate that. Seriously. If I was going to do something like this, how would I do it? What would I do? What can I get away with? How could I, you know What? What did the means available to me, and that's the end. That's the stuff that interests me. It's can we make a movie, a revenge movie that as exciting as every other Bucks. The incredibly disconcerting thing is that it also feels real. And it's about a real person trying to go through something get through something impossible. Um, because that's the stuff that interests me. I mean, I think all of us would rather be punched in the face, then showing that we're not good people. You do that in a really interesting way with casting choices, too, and that you've cast some really traditionally lovable actors like Alison Brie and Connie Britton, as as characters that are so morally Like we don't like them. Um And I think you just do such a good job of messing with our expectations about about about who we think is good. Mm. Well, and I think that's very important. Yeah, and with all of the actors that something I said, because what so many, like, brilliant, amazing and as you say, lovable actors, Adam broody in Christmas plants, Sam Richardson. You know, people like this people that we are like super crushable and funny and lovable. But this is a movie about a whole culture. It's about People who think they're good. So it was important to you. It was important to kind of cast those people that we feel fondly towards. You know, I'm not really interested in villains. E don't really think they exist, So I'm much more frightened by Lies we tell ourselves to get what we want or to not have to do the right thing. If you're just tuning in. I'm Talia Schlanger.
