The election have anyone ago problem with an. I could hear her feeling sad. And i was like all goes friends at the age and then like later that night. Her ex boyfriend commies. You're taking blah blah blah. The problem is like not like that like she. Just you just broke up with a new date world friends and he's i don't do this. I had a call. Joe and i pumped out. Because i didn't want to be in trauma. I was just trying. I thought it'd be chill. So that was kinda mean undesired. Yo your ex boyfriend is calls. I don't take any problems. And i didn't like her intimately it also like i'm not getting enough drama at high school. I'll need cia for no hookup. John myself. I did uninvite a girl problem once which was kind of mean but it was like a quick twenty four hours like she didn't get address. Okay another story. also. I got You know so prom night. It's supposed to be when like the action happens and the action. Let's say in the movies. Okay so i assume so. My experience was there was on one floor though tells. Everyone's hanging out with a party and with your prom date and they think you're going up the floor and it's like i didn't really like probably it was just go to problem. Or whatever nice girl her. And so. I got off elevator and she went up and i was like say an went into like where everyone's not hooking up and just having fun and partying went to that but it was literally remember the elevator door harry night by the dirk lows. So that's inaugurate problem story. More okay back to you. So does that matter anymore No i bet everyone goes as friends now. I would think promise fun. I think it's i mean i don't know it's the time to get dressed up. It's probably something at the end of the year. Something to look forward to. You can ask somebody you. Can't i mean also life has a lot of rejection in us. Just kinda part of life so. I don't think that it should be this thing. That's eliminated when it's like then you grow up and then everything's competitive and everything like so. She was like life. Is the popularity. Well was living in italy. You living in italy from yeah. You had some problems. They just weren't at high schools Coming at a different school. Oh when i was a sophomore and then there is no action. that happened And then. I was gone as a senior because i went to college. Of course. yeah some. I got my ged. And i left early. I always wanted to do in the movies that looked really fun. Well once we get rich again. I will set up a whole prom and we'll have jazz. I gotta ask me. I'm like a really great way like all these people. They have like candles in front of the yard and flowers. We'll get into that later but anyways okay so now. Back to the show or shopping south coast plaza which. I'm sure you can't fill at now. So good for them. Because i know when we tried to film at palisades village just to walk is ten thousand dollars in usually shows are in china. Pay ten thousand dollars to get a shot of you walking and then you have clearance from the story. So what a good old datasheet reality tv. When i'm sure you'd even have permits like and they are joking about chad. Michael murray taking them to prom. Which is funny. Because they really both thought that after this aired that he would wash this and then they would be dating him. So that's probably why they said that also lawrence said that you want to ask you to because they pay for you so hustler guess lauren hustle there girl from daiwa sixty years old. It's interesting she lost that and became the girl pay for the man. 'cause all due respect her husband. She's definitely the breadwinner which is awesome. She's one smart laced even married her own lawyer and then funded affirm hustler. These lawyer bills are adding native. Mary a lawyer. Then you become a lawyer. That'd be and then. I'll open your firm for you. I'm going to go to law school to honey. Well i don't have the budget for you or your firm. So i think he started with that real estate exam. Your retirement us more in okay more and are by real estate funds for my own fat. We're going to that show Selling sunset made by adam. Devil o the old creator of the hills. While we're doing selling malibu artie. Patent trademark pending shutout. Sandra shout cooper. We're going to reach out to them at the agency china to get them on the show. So don't try to that show. Where got selling malveaux. Gula okay and then. Alex asked kristen. If she went to prom with. Stephen or sam i mean. Is there really any competition here. I really thought she will be going him. Actually sam was way more likable. didn't slut. Shame her didn't scream at her is in china. Play games with her with stephen but now knowing kristen so well i don't even know she even likes shoes. Probably just like oh. This is a competition. She just seems like should win at all costs. So i feel like oh. There's another girl. I i i. I don't know i love to ask. We should get her on and ask her about the beach. We've now that we're experts on this show. We definitely should I think that she did like stephen. I think he was just such a jerk. So often was like hard to fully like him brown. Morgan christen gets a letter from secret admirer. Asking her to prom. Everyone thinks it's weird nowadays. I my parents would call the police if this type of thing happens. So that's fun back in the day you could do things like this and not catch like fbi case What's the best way to ask someone of rahm will now. With all these people dying from gender reveals which demi levato things. We shouldn't even have any more. That i'm not getting into that is what it is but So i love demi levato. We're actually getting her credit crystals. I was just addressing something in the media Yeah i think they're dangerous. I think you know you should just keep it simple. It's very sad. All these tragic stories of people actually dying agenda reveals. I don't know if you were dying. Also at prom reveals. Now you know. These kids are always rushing kids climbing on frigging buildings for all we know they climb up on a building and yell. You go problem with any fallen die. I can see that happening in russia. Okay so i guess we don't really know the best. Would you wanna be us. We'll go into it. But i thought the all the candles on the yard was really nice and maybe like a walkway. Almost like a sounds like valid engagement. Yeah whatever it's just something thoughtful and sweden and surprising you know flowers and did we go spray painted like that. Hose on a hike members. You go to prom. They did it on the the water tower. Remember that. I remember that somebody spray painted a water tower like i don't think spray paints romantic. I personally well. I mean you are risking vandalism so it does show your commitment to the i i could. Have you know maybe gone to jail for this. Yeah in any of that year that reckless. And you're like a lawbreaker boss. Not sexy don't take me down with you. Don't put my name on that total set. Honor you with I'd probably do a garrett. Did i'd have one hundred notes for you gear from siesta key. Five hundred notes and you have to put them together as a puzzle That's a lot of reading and work. That was my point. I wanted to. He really wrote down one hundred things or if you buy that which we should sell that as like a like a lover i think he really loved her..

"laguna beach" Discussed on Ready to Be Petty
"I'm trying to think. I've been plenty Petty in my day. I have I even think some of the stuff I did with Shannon was on Petty level. I really do like I got to break the news that she was fired before any news Outlet did that was petty of me. I do I like to think off. But I'm twenty-nine. I'm not as Petty as I used to be but I'll still send out, you know Shady tweet. I'll still text somebody and be like hey, what did you mean when you said or recently? I knew a friend said something about me to another friend. So I texted her and I'm like, you know what I think's really funny. I was just like, you know, I don't know I try to be more direct than like Petty but I'm trying to think maybe not recently, but I know there have been times where I've worked in like retail like back in the day retail to me was like Cutthroat like a sink or swim and Retail and this girl was like hooking up with this guy off and I found out that she also hooked up with his best friend. So I told him Oh my God, I love that. I blame it on being raised on Laguna Beach. Honestly, you're like this is my chance reporter the dramatic T show. Yeah, so I would say like early twenties. All I ever did was be Petty same here. Well, obviously need like I continue to be to this day. I love on your podcast when you talk about yeah how direct you are with some people and yeah, I just feel like you live long like authentically I try really hard. There's still you know, I like talk shit. I'll always talk shit, but I will also say to someone's face if someone was to be like did you say the page like I did and this is why that is amazing. Cuz if anyone ever said this to me, I would deny. I'm surprised and I lie until like it's like it's like gone. Yeah, I I mean I used to and then eventually I just talked too much shit got called out all the time and I'm like, I just have to own it. That's amazing. I feel like maybe like that hasn't happened to me in like many many years. So maybe nowadays I'd be like, yeah because my feelings were hurt or I was feeling shity about myself where I thought you did something mean or whatever. But yeah back in the day I would.
"laguna beach" Discussed on Ready to Be Petty
"It does take away a lot of the magic cuz I think yeah people know what their lives could be. Like if the show is successful and there's just a month. I don't know a clear need for things to go. I don't know their way, maybe yeah. Yeah. I'm I'm sure that's true and I'm probably a little jaded because I do like Lagoon in the Hills so much money, and I'm like, I'm not even going to get into this and it's honestly probably a me issue cuz I know a lot of people love Siesta Key. Yes. Yes, cuz it does have the same Bible. It just seems yeah a lot more polished and the cast is a little bit older their college-age not high school and It's just the same I think fantasy of like living in a beach the small Beach town and having friends and going on like romantic dates and stuff like that that people really suck still watch it for. Yeah. Maybe I'll give it another shot. Maybe I won't be such a hater. Did you ever watch? This is a Canadian question for you because everyone knows I'm Canadian, but did you ever watch the after-show with Dan Levy and Jessi Cruickshank? No, I didn't. What stocked is my whole life. My mom had a strict bedtime for me. Right? So like when when Laguna are the hills was on I could stay up til 10:00 or 10:30 or whatever it ended but not a second later. Like I could not walk even tried to catch an after-show. My mom would just take like the cable box. It would take a cable box to work. So it was like, okay. I'll just go to bed that's song. I love that she went to those lengths and it was the worst punishment should be honest. Yes, I would feel the exact same way because yeah, obviously I I like watching TV and yeah, but no, unfortunately I didn't I've seen clips and I just I wish that I got to watch it when it was on. Yeah, it reminds me a lot of your page because it was really small. Obviously. It was Canadian produced. It was on MTV Canada. So I think even the first couple of Seasons didn't even are in the US and then it just gained such a following and had such a presence that by the end of the hills all of the cast members had been like guests on the show and and they hosted this series finale e r t right they did which is so huge which is what I see for your page with this this Laguna Beach reunion, maybe one day maybe one day but yeah wage It's kind of wild but I'm so happy cuz Dan Levy has had such great success with like schitt's Creek so funny. He's so funny and he's so famous now, but whose Roots were in a a Laguna Beach recap show. That's incredible. That gives me such hope yeah, honestly, honestly, is that where you see your careers like is that. That's of interest to you to be an influencer. No, definitely not influencer. I get, you know influencers people can make fun of them, but I feel like if I had to put myself on my story every day and post pictures with like whatever product that's a lot of work maybe a writer of some sort, but I didn't even expect the page to become as big as it is, and it's still very shocking, but I don't know I guess I just want to see where it takes me off. I think there has to be some kind of opportunity eventually, so I'm not giving up on it just yet. Even though like I said last week there was a point where I was like no, I'm done. I know that's so frustrating but I totally agree that I I see this..
"laguna beach" Discussed on Ready to Be Petty
"Absolutely and just going off like the early twenties with Lauren and all of that I even have that issue with a lot of Laguna people people would be like dead. Alex semin was such a bitch and I'm like first of all it was a lot of editing second of all she Seventeen drunken Cabo like come on. I know and if there was cameras when I was seventeen, it would look the exact same as Laguna Beach if there were cameras when I was like twenty one. It would still probably look like Laguna Beach like just a mess with honestly. I know especially with the alcohol I love how you point that out and you always see allegedly and I feel like you give people sometimes too much slack because I feel like it's so obvious. But yeah, that's maybe another reason why I just loved it so much is because it truly looked like a snapshot of like my own life or what I wanted it took like exactly exactly so we've kind of alluded to the Laguna Beach reunion, but Stephan Dieter tray pollster and then. Emily was the host and then there was Christina Morgan Kristen low and Talon. Yes, and of course, why do you think it was just those people selected like why not Jessica or I don't know just other cast members. I have no idea. I was told by a season a cast member they weren't even asked to join. Okay, so it's just kind of like the OG crew. Yeah, but in my opinion season too, I live in die for season to that season wage. I think that season made Laguna iconic. Yeah, I completely agree. I thought that Jessica had such a huge story line that I don't know. I feel like she's one of the ones that people remember the most at her and Jason and like carried season to 100% Jason was another person that it seemed weird dog. Not being there. I agree with you. I wonder if there's other people who wanted to be there and just didn't get the invite or do you think that these are the people because it was for like a an election. They they first Stephan Dieter tray and Lauren first did it to get people to vote? Do you think that people because it's like Politically Incorrect and like didn't want to participate know. I I think it was just they wanted the season 1 cast. I don't know why but I'm sure there was some kind of thing where maybe one of the cast members was like no, I don't want to be on camera with an X or something like that. Oh my gosh, it was so long ago. I don't know. I feel like that would be weird to have a problem with that. But I'm excited. Nonetheless any other things you want to touch about the Laguna Beach reunions. No not really dead. I guess we'll see. We'll see. We'll see how it goes. I the one thing I will say is I think a lot of people think that they're going to be like really deep questions about Laguna and all this stuff and I'm sure there'll be some but I do think it's going to be very surface-level..

"Your number, Gosh Stephen is to back off and low s she stephen and says. He. First, it's on camera all your I you know why are you pretending? You're not like I think she just wants to downplay it because Stephen plays her so much. She looks a little silly. So she doesn't want to be like, yeah Stephen Bannon, so I'll be it. See even at the montage and what does he really want who knows this guy? I actually I canceled Stephen after I saw screaming you're a slut like I saw you're supposed to be the cool guy, a girl dancing on the bar like even that was the worst game like he's the. As so unlikable. Now I do understand why people don't like me because they think I'm unlikable Michelle like because now, I really don't like him from that one. See if I were to ever see him, I'd be like you're a slut Stephen. Steven. Yeah. Boy What. You really get affected watching some of these things. Well, that was really an. Talk to ninety show. Yeah.

"So some of the greatest stuff I had there but anyways. Yeah. You just don't have the pressure of making adult decisions, but you feel like an adult in the whole world ahead of you. So it's just fun watching it and remembering and being back at this time because at this time I was in crested Butte I just got back from living in Italy for seven months and I was in crested butte and instead of having a senior year of high school all I was went to have a freshman year of fashion school art school whatever the whatever the. Versus. Seriously anyways back to this scene, Morgan and Kristina say they like her better when she's not around low and I also liked lauren more when she's not around low because lawyer vicious very like snobby I think she likes to kind of be that way or it's like her personality or kind of this like. I don't know but I also always lauren more I actually liked it when they weren't friends because I felt like Lauren could be like more herself anyways I think there are friends again now. So not going see too much but it is an interesting observation that they have that they think Lauren is different when she's around. So I definitely had observed that myself in person and. Then Elsie picks up the two faced lip gloss, which was very organic, and then you also want to say the Kylie thing you've said Oh. Thank you. God. I'm so glad you have a great memory. So before this episode and before L. C.'s recent announcement that I saw on US weekly. Zoom. I was saying ninety the biggest mistake Elsie ever did was have that manager Mack spearmint. Cotton artists and not a real Kris Jenner level. Hustler I mean, that's a real deal agent manager and I think she probably just committed to this guy and thought he was in it from the beginning but it's just a hard because if you're going to time machine, there hadn't been a Kylie Jenner billionaire there hadn't been influencers in the so was new things I do understand you would have had to be very forward thinking as to see this is impossible but so far on this show more than fashion, she's actually talked about makeup and doing makeup in going shopping, and even at the fashion show, she was talking about how the? A Work of art says a good agent or manager back. Then she would have as the teen girl in Laguna Beach. They would have come out with the makeup lines pre kylie like lip kit or just lip gloss that was called. You know frikkie in Emerald Bay, and it was like a blue like emerald and the private beach or you know I don't know all the names of like they have all these secret beach names I would named all my. Little lip glosses after different Laguna beach hang out spot and and then I would have dropped that in Pacific Sun wear something totally in the mall that. Back, then these kids were shopping at and I think she would be a billionaire I now and it's right after saying to hide you. Two days later, I, see this US weekly alert about her announcing her new make blind congratulations great whatever. But you are fifteen years too late and I obviously hope for success for everyone and I'm sure she'll get a little success, but you will not be a billionaire makeup at this point I. You couldn't get in a more oversaturated market you're not going to be able to compete against the Jeffrey Stars and. Said etc.. The Charles or whatever I mean. There's too many to name and but she was ahead of all them on a television show getting pry five million viewers when that mattered twenty million viewers. So it is interesting how the universe works out saying that, and then like three days later she announces it. But now it is what it is, and you know should've would've could've think that was a huge missing Bo chief in sale on agreed. So cut to Christina's birthday party at Joe's crab shack this is one of the most this is the most fun seeing I've seen so far and it's so interesting that kristen is there and. Is Not invited. So it does show that the group like I said is closer to Kristen, then to Lauren to Elsie so. Yeah. Alex. hoosiers their Gary's their Kristen's there. It just looks really fun and it's interesting. Gary there I always thought it says Gary Kristen's friend I've met Gary and actually thought Gerry was L. friends. So I don't know if he's friends with both of them or like whatever. But I had no idea he was friends with and I thought it was a very diehard team Elsie which was a very real thing. So I was like, Oh, I didn't know that I don't know if. He got he switched teams or was friends with the whole thing was very interesting to me. So anyways Christian and Gary wrote a note to the hot guy at the table next door over and he comes in Chas them. This whole scene is so an kristen is such a Mac Daddy I love her game. She's just so fun like that's one of the things I love about Christian. She's always having fun. She's like confident and silly but anyways, it was such a fun seem to watch added. She got that guy's number. So it's like Stephen, who steven, you're a tripping thinking that. She's wrapped around your finger. So also that I love this cut cut the trays house where Stephen Deeter pollster are all there and I I think they're having their red sippy cups because which are alcohol I was told allegedly by the cast members would ever they had the red sippy cups it was always alcohol in there. So they have lots of red cups probably drinking a little bit which I don't know if the producers. They knew about it or allegedly I think they knew about it. But I don't know if they just tried not to intervene and watch or if it was just a unspoken thing at. All very interesting. So anyways, Stephen thinks that things are great with Christian back on his finally figured it out. It's like, okay. You totally cannot figure out Christian first of all and she is a player and you are sounded like the Sh-, he's just like I got kristen back. It's just a very like gossipy girl tape of conversation finally figured out you didn't figure her al.. Jay Cutler about thou- fearing K. Cavallo. She'll keep our toes. He's like. A know what?

"Here we go. We did the best podcast in the history of podcasts last week on time, delivered it for incredible listeners but we had a technical difficulty parent problems. The Monitor for gunners sleeping was in the room not close but in the room and the frequency caught up on our little zoom recorder and ruined our audio and. Bag Steve, our producer please Poe cities. I can't post this and it was a work of art. We sat there through the whole do look at the beach pausing it in between each little clip we talked about which will start doing in the future. So don't judge this version. We have the new level and guess what we're going to start filming it at post to get off the do recap. Spidey podcasts YouTube Channel Breaking News. So you watch US react while we SIP OUR DRINKS Last week I was drinking Hoti Taty, which was really great. So. We are here. Yes. Very excited. Maybe I should make a holiday Taty for this podcast in honor of the other one omega. Is. Round. was requiring. Extremely, hot stream like you baby. Thank you honey. Thank you. So yeah already gave you full disclosure the Dow but we watched it. We know it and yeah, it was. We got notes. We took notes right now it's. It's almost my birthday which is very exciting September virgo season. Happy Birthday all you virgos out there. You know I love all of you. That's for sure ready. She get into this episode. Okay. So Laguna Beach episode four our already on this is eighteen candles. So that's the name of it. How how regional instead of sixteen candles this setup an elsie? Is Not happy about Stephen Getting attention from the models at the fashion show and Steven goes running back to kristen, of course, and Elsie and low are drifting from Morgan and Kristina all very real things. So of course, Elsie is not happy about Stephen. Of course, he was running back to Kristen. So scene by scene, we start here at Christina's house her. Mom gets her and audition during her trip for wicked rent hairspray. First of all, it's very impressive that they are going to New York by themselves. So we talked about this last week Spencer was hope that the parents are telling them how dangerous New York is but at their age, I was definitely living on my own and traveling and it's a hard. Choice because they're about to be in college, they're living on their own, they're going out on their own so you can't be like your unless you're going to college in New York but even then as a caution, you start in a dorm and you have like your friend like just going from high school I didn't go to New York until I was. Twenty I dunno San Francisco is pretty gnarly and there was no like real dorm. You're Kinda just like on your own you went to hurt school has. All. KRISTA OR KEEP I. Know she said Fashions. Not. Arts. Later I. Yeah. So anyways, I am hoping that Christina is an amazing singer I think I remember but I. Hope She really knocks out the park. So it's either going to be for wicked rent or hairspray which are all unbelievable and it's great that she opportunity because she was filming for MTV also her mom's outfit was so boss and q a really liked that so Morgan Christine are going to New York, they contemplate how close they are with Elsie and low I think that they're not liking them or feeling them and it's kind. Of a group dynamic it seems like Elsie and low or actually on the outs with the whole group because Morgan and Kristina are friends with Alex Kristen you know everyone. So it seems like the group is not split up it's just elsie and low and the other group, and then also are at the mall and they questioned how close they are to Morgan and Kristina. So they're walking around the mall. It looks so nice like we said last time Spencer's survey Shen about the mall and Oh. Thank you comes this is a this is deja Vu podcast because I hardy talked about this for our deputies. Say. So thank you hear such a Ti that good memory I was saying the stalled. Feeling of them, coming down the escalators in the south coast. Plaza Mall really just felt like the most real thing. I've seen on a reality show in years because nobody in the in the mall cares I think they probably had a small little crew low key probably thought they were just high school students doing some high school project. They didn't think this was some MTV television show this. Is being film so they can just walk through the mall and it felt like a real fly on the wall type EXP- like Voyeurs I'm like, oh my gosh we're in this on the beach and I don't know to me now after years of watching reality shows and being on reality shows to actually see something that feels so authentic and organic and like a documentary that would've been on. Sundance or something. What's interesting is this could have been a documentary this show one, a lot awards if they had instead of making it to seasons had edited Laguna Beach in a two hour documentary for Sundance. This would've blown people out of the water with all the drama packed in the two hours. It's such a fun time in life when you're like about to be out of the house and you feel like such an adult and you're like making these choices but you don't have the pressure of being an adult yet like the finances or at least I, didn't and I'm sure people have very different circumstances. And I was not wearing Noah glasses at that age actually I was going to thrift stores and I found this was before thrift stores were like Super Trendy people would be like, oh my gosh. Yeah. Go to thrift store and your first of all 'cause that's all I can afford and second of all because they have amazing things. So I found like Dior Wallet there and now vintages all coupon stuff but. Yeah Very Edgy when I used to do it and I love thrift store..

"Your feet anyways. Fashion show nightmare disaster and then I love and she's driving and the next day I knows something so funny and then she's like, oh my gosh, I, wonder what Christian is going to say about Stephen. Not. Like oh I don't even think Chen realize that they like hooked up or how to think or like it was just so irrelevant she's like I wonder how Christians going to feel about Stephen, with those models not like, oh, how do you feel are like it was something so unacknowledged that Lauren wasn't even in the equation to one of her best friends about Steven was not interesting. Because if I'm if Lauren told me that she hooked up with Stephen which I don't know if she told Jenner not divy. You okay. Where you bomb like that wasn't even a question that was asked from general. No they definitely were. Now, that's what I'm saying. I don't know if she had told Genu- or if it just happened so far in the past, she didn't tell her recently alike for one of her best friends it was like, how is Christina feel? Crazy anyways a very interesting dog. Good. No. And then at my other thing that I love so much was the date between Stephen and Kristen and Steven has this big smile on his his can't wait to make. Christian. So jealous about models and she flipped it on him so hard she looks like he's Getting. You. Go I just walk Chung. Can I went to. I went to dinner with Zach and he's like what and she's a guy girlfriend and. How do you know? Would you guys do and then you didn't say. Than these X.. You. That's it just went. Oh Yeah. That's a good thing. Look nothing happened but he the whole air was out of his sails about the models are relevant. Didn't even matter but he went to L. A. he had been digging in his head for however long kit we tell Kristen is and didn't even faze her at all and then he was gills. The dinner. So I, love that flip. That was very funny and then here's the question of the night. It's like. Now it's evolved as people are adults in a different way or I, don't know what they did. But anyways so are you going home after dinner and you know every time we've seen it'll be like, yeah, I'm just going home like I don't want to hang out with you anymore she's like, no, I don't WanNa go home, and then it's like, what do you do I don't know what are you gonNA do I. Don't know what do you WanNa do they go back and forth and then they end up going to somebody's house together. this show is a masterpiece is. They've captured. I give it's real. This is all I mean yeah are. It's like this really been should schoolers and Laguna Beach speaking of beach and I think it is funny that Lauren. Very, orange, county style and this is not unique to hurts. You know they'll take top SORTA but it's funny that. You know I went to school in the west side here in girls that were in fashion versus how Lauren is Jesse versus I grew up with girls into fashion and their outfits. It's fascinating that somebody into fashion Her outfits were Alvis they were just. Obviously, critiquing a fashion school journey, but it's maybe she wanted to learn fashion and fashion school because. I mean I was more fashionable. I should've had a line with Coles I'm just saying. Don't shave here I'll tell you what. At the same time, I was in Italy wearing a miss Sony scarf Hutson have. My knees I was fashion. Okay. I had a Prada bag that my whose mother bought me. I was wearing red practice slides. Slides were very headed. People are now wearing slides I was. Seventeen I also was wearing miniskirts should not have been wearing in the clubs I wore I had even on a budget which I had I shop at thrift stores which you found the most fashion at the best prices. I had a dior wallet that I found at Seventeen there. So I will tell you I was obsessed. That's all I'm saying. fashioned. School. because. Everyone. I. Know that when the fashion school just they were passion when children that over the neck I felt at, my should've been a makeup artist seems like she definitely had all make.

The funniest thing is she didn't want to be called L. C.

Opinion. into the hills and what do you say about that? We can't recover. Exclusive never before seen footage that I'm you know have audio? And, yeah. We should start filming this since we're at her house in putting on Youtube. Of US WATCH OUT PEOPLE WE'RE. GonNa take on the Tock views. Speaking of Tiktok these tiktok here's are getting a hundred and twenty, five million views on some videos. I wish there was evidence that showed these views were real. I just checked Jelly. Jacked, hacked by China. Who Live it's all of us. It's hard to really imagine somebody watched. Addison do the WOP. A hundred and twenty five, nine times eight. That's what it says. mean all due respect great dancer but. There's that many people I know maybe a watched it ten times still at that's the biggest number of like the randomest thing. But I guess they're stuck in on the movies and the feed pushes it I'm not hating I'm very proud of at us and I think she deserves all of her success. Totally Oh speaking Addison Success Megan Fox was recently, I can do this on a main post. Tag Things now on a main pose. Shutout. Chico back in tag all yourself shut out the new instagram update. We can now tag business products per day dot com products in our photos. That's the new update for anybody that has a business or your Creator. He calls a tech products in live. Very cool new very helpful. So get ready for lots promo players So Megan. Fox was quoted talking about fame and that like she doesn't understand fame does really really know what's going on anymore and it's not I'm not misquoting her some China like. It and she said that when she did transformers back in the day, there was just a handful of select girls and actors that got to be famous and we're celebrities and says, now every single person has any type of following on any APP is now considered famous celebrity she said. So it's backward I've saying I'm glad that we had our fifteen minutes in a frigging back in the heyday peak fame forty paps in cars following a motive. So it was very special and now I am not I am not as like obviously depressed that we're not. Super ridiculously famous city bar. So 'cause it's not real anymore doesn't have the same magic same sparkle. Thanks wish you'd come in Tokyo two, thousand, ten with a crystal ball. You you know fame's gone you those it has so diluted. went out on top. It started being diluted with reality TV I. think that's why all the actors industry was. So resentful for all that they're like, no, this is our industry. This is our world you know. So I do understand where they were coming from and now via beverly one is famous Okay. So what was the name of this episode again Fast Fast Cars and fast women? Woman Oh. Yes. So this episode. was. What are you reading your notes out of any Oh. Yeah. I'm reading my notes out of my new MTV notebook with my MTV pen. Yes talk about Meta you are just as of reality icon. DVD. We don't have the best. Recap this was also bought people. I respond to bouts at this point being coordinated on this episode was totally the Kristen Show. So I fully android. So many different things happen in here I mean obviously a lauren, how to lot of the storyline but really the whole stories about three people at is about Lauren Christian, and Steven the love triangle between them is the main. Through line of this whole show and then everyone else is just kind of downloading and. Around as of right now anyways. So Kristen and her car, this has to be when the funniest things ever Oh I in the recap win Lauren's like Kristen was so shady about Sam or whatever it's like wait a minute how can kristen be the shady one heard Stephen Aren't together and Steven is hooking up with Lawrence. So the that was unfair narration towards Kristen but I guess that was you know Lauren wanting to say that or MTV or it was but still it's like what do you mean there weren't even boyfriend girlfriend how come he can be like this player then Christie. Does she Shady it's like fully agree with that but anyways, Jen is in this episode, she is such a legend. So she's up lunch with low and Lauren and Yeah Jen. So this whole conversation is so funny about low eight nut Lauren and Steven are going to get married and then Lawrence like no, no I I'm not gonNA.

Also, if you're looking for a way to Wash Laguna Beach, make sure to check it all out on CBS all. They have tons of MTV content there, but that's not all. You can also watch the twenty second season of big. Brother. For those of you who don't know big brother follows a group of strangers living in a house with a dozen high Def cameras and microphones recording their every move twenty four hours a day, which is a pretty crazy concept. We're all used to it now but like that's a very intense experience each. Week the houseguests will vote someone out of the house in the end. The last remaining houseguests will win the Grand Prize, a five, hundred, thousand dollars. This season is an all-star season, which is always the best my opinion consisting of all the returning houseguests. We love a brother not only because we have done it, but we love watching it to watch it is one thing but you have no idea it is a hundred. Times more challenging than you could possibly imagine living in that house not seeing any producers, any outside people not knowing what's going on with your family or having access I mean it is unbelievable. I. It's I mean it's like a science fiction film, but it's a real thing that you can watch..

Or trauma or things that have happened that still in your body. So this place hopes he'll you mind body soul and gets to the root of a lot of problems. So for me I have some childhood trauma Kn I'm sure everybody does just from the past and you know things that have happened. So one I put on these headphones and then this music came on and there was like software music and then these drums came in and it was like a very soulful experience that I. Just have an image come in my head of like me and like running through the woods and you know in a long dress and it was just a very emotional journey that I went on in my mind and I did cry and it was like a very healing cry just like soft and gentle healing, and then he's like positive words by came and comfort and Definitely prayed through it and Just it was a very healing experience.

Greg Jackson Reads Where You'll Find Me by Ann Beattie
"We're going to hear where you'll find me by an beady which was published in the New Yorker in March of nineteen eighty six. What's wrong with me? Howard says it's almost the first time he's looked at me since I arrived. I've been trying not to register my boredom and my frustration with cates paddle. Maybe we should get a tree. I say I don't think it's Christmas. That's making me feel this way. Howard says the story was chosen. Greg Jackson whose debut Story Collection Prodigal was published in two thousand sixteen. Hi Greg Hi Deborah. So you once a student of. Nbd's right. I was wearing. When was that? I was her student at the University of Virginia in twenty eleven. Two thousand. Twelve I had a workshop with her and she was then my thesis adviser and I chose her as my thesis adviser because she never liked any of my work and I thought what better person to learn from I I knew in some sense that She was right in that. My work wasn't very good but I didn't really know why I thought if I just hung out with her for a really long time. I'd figure out what she knew that I didn't did that. Work you know it's funny. It didn't really work and I think this is like the side of teaching writing. That's impossible but she did. Tell me a number of things that were so true that when I was able to understand what she was saying I realized if I'd gotten it at the time it would have helped a lot but it's one of those things where you have to actually experience. The truth fit in practice. She was dead on. But it's just it's hard to like here maxim and be like. Oh yeah that's what I should be doing my writing. Yeah and at that time. Had you read a lot of her work? I'd rather fair number. Her stories partly coming into Virginia. I knew that she was one of the people I was really excited about studying with but I can't say that I had a kind of comprehensive career. What was it that appealed to you about the stories that you dread will. They were so different from what I was doing and probably different from in some ways from what I've gone on to You know I think sometimes people apply. This term minimalism and I think she rebels against that term and I understand why. I don't think she's minimalist but I did. Think of myself at the time as maximalist trying to kind of fit as much of all the nuance at any given moment into When I was writing and I felt like with her there was some ability to just say less than I ever would have been comfortable saying and somehow in saying last two or something that so kind of rich and mysterious in just itself kind of discipline that I didn't have him still don't really have. Yeah and when you chose this story where you'll find me which I think you said you now teach. Was that a story. You knew back then. Is it a story that you came to later? It's one of my probably two or three very favorites of hers. I've loved teaching this story because it seems on the surface very straightforward But it actually has such depth and reservoirs of symbol and metaphor in sort of deep structures. That it's very fun and interesting to work with students to see how something can kind of work just completely on the surface level and kind of have these steps that you drop into. Well maybe we should drop into them now and then we can talk a little more. So now here's Greg Jackson reading where you'll find me by NBD where you'll find me friends. Keep calling my broken arm. A broken wing. It's the left arm now folded against my chest and kept in place of the blue scarfs. Sling that is knotted behind my neck in ways too much ever to have been winglike. The accident happened when I ran for a bus. I tried to stop it from pulling away by shaking my shopping bags like Maracas in the air. And that's when I slipped on the ice and went down so I took the train from New York City to Sarah Toga yesterday. Instead of driving I had the perfect excuse not to go to Saratoga to visit my brother at all but once I had geared up for it I decided to go through with the trip and avoid guilt. It isn't Howard. I mind but his wife's two children a girl of eleven and a boy of three beck either pays no attention to her brother Todd or else. She tortures him last winter. She used to taunt him by stalking around the House on his heels clumping close behind him wherever he went which made him run and scream at the same time. Kate did not intervene until both children became hysterical and we could no longer shout over their voices. I think I like it. That their physical. She said maybe if they enact some of their hostility like this they won't grow up with a habit of getting what they want by playing mind games with other people. It seems to me that they will not ever grow up but will burn out like meteors Howard has finally found what he wants the opposite of domestic tranquillity. For six years he lived in Oregon with Pale Passive Woman. On the rebound. He married even Paler. Pre Med student named Francine that marriage lasted less than a year and then on a blind date in Los Angeles. He met Kate whose husband was away on a business trip to Denmark. Just then in no time. Kate and her daughter an infant son moved in with him to the studio apartment in. Laguna beach. He was sharing with screenwriter. The two men had been working on a script about Medgar Evers but when Kate and the children moved in they switched to writing a screenplay about what happens when a man meets a married woman with two children on a blind date and the three of them move in with him and his friend. Then Howard's collaborator got engaged in moved out in the screenplay was abandoned. Howard accepted a last minute. Invitation to teach writing at an upstate. College New York and within a week. They were all ensconced in a drafty Victorian House in Saratoga. Kate's husband had begun divorce proceedings before she moved in with Howard but eventually he agreed not to sue for custody of Becky and Todd in exchange for child support payments that were less than half of what his lawyer thought he would have to pay now. He sends the children enormous stuffed animals that they have little or no interest in with notes that say put this mom zoo a stuffed toy every month or so giraffes a life sized German shepherd and overstuffed standing bear in every time the same note the bear stands in one corner of the kitchen and people have gotten in the habit of pinning notes to it reminders. To buy milk or get the oil changed in the car. Wraparound sunglasses have been added. Scarves and jackets sometimes draped on its arms. Sometimes the stuffed German shepherd is brought over propped up with its paws placed on the bears haunt imploring. It right now in the kitchen with the bear. I've just turned up the thermostat. The first one up in the morning is supposed to do that. And I'm dunking a teabag in a Mug of hot water for some reason it's impossible for me to make tea with loose tea and the t-ball unless I have help. The only t bag I could find was emperor's choice. I sit in one of the kitchen chairs to drink the tea. The chair seems to stick to me. Even though I have on Mo- long johns and along Flannel nightgown. The chairs are plastic. Very nineteen fifties patterned with shapes that. Look sometimes geometric sometimes almost human little things like malformed hands reach out toward triangles and squares. I asked Howard and Kate got the kitchen set at an auction for thirty dollars. They thought it was funny. The House itself is not funny. It has four fireplaces wide board floors and high dusty ceilings. They bought it with his share of an inheritance that came to us. When our grandfather died cates contribution to restoring the house has been transforming. The baseboards into faux marble. How effective this is has to do with how stone she is when she starts. Sometimes the baseboards looked like clotted versions of the Kitchen. Chair pattern instead of marble cake considers what she calls parenting to be a full-time job. When I moved to Saratoga she used to give piano lessons now. She ignores the children and paints the baseboards in. Who Am I to stand in judgment? I'm a thirty eight year old woman. Out of a job on tenuous enough footing with her sometime lover that she can imagine crashing emotionally as easily as she did on the ice. It may be true as my lover. Frank says that having money is not good for the soul money that is given you that is he is a lawyer who also has money but it is. Money earned parlayed into more money by investing in real estate and urban farm as part of this real estate boxes of herbs keep turning up at Frank's office herbs and foil herbs and plastic bags dried herbs wrapped in cones of newspaper. He crumbles them for Omelettes ROASTS VEGETABLES HIS OPPOSED TO SALT. He insists herbs are more healthful. And who am I to claim to love a man when I am skeptical even about his use of herbs? I'm embarrassed to be an employed. I'm insecure enough to stay with someone because of the look that sometimes comes into his eyes when he makes love to me. I'm a person who secretly shakes on. Salt in the kitchen then comes out with her plate. Smiling as Basil is crumbled over the tomatoes sometimes in our bed his finger smell of Rosemary. Tarragon strong smells sour. Smells whatever Shakespeare says or whatever is written in culpeper complete herbal. I cannot imagine that herbs have anything to do with love but many brides to be come to the herb farm and by branches of herbs to stick in their bouquets they their wrists with herbal extracts to smell mysterious. They believed that herbs. Bring Them Luck. These days they want tubs of Rosemary in their houses. Not fakest trees. I got in right on the cusp of the new world. Frank says he isn't kidding for the Christmas party tonight. They're cherry tomatoes halved and stuffed with peaks of cheese mushrooms stuffed with pureed tomatoes tomatoes stuff with chop mushrooms and mushroom stuffed with cheese caters laughing in the kitchen. No one's going to notice she mutters. No one's going to say anything. Why don't we put out some nuts? Howard says nuts are so conventional. This is funny. Kate says squirting more soft cheese out of a pastry tube year. We had mistletoe mulled CIDER. Last year we lost their sense of humor. What happened that? We got all hyped up. We even ran out on Christmas Eve to cut a tree. The kids Howard says that's right. She says the kids were crying. They were feeling competitive with the other kids or something. Becky was crying. Todd was too young to cry about that Howard says why are we talking about tears? Kate says we can talk about tears when it's not the season to be jolly everybody's going to come in tonight and loved the res on the picture hooks and the food is so festive. We invited a new Indian guy from the philosophy department. Howard says American Indian Not Indian from India if we want we can watch the tapes of jewel in the crown. Kate says I'm feeling really depressed. Howard says backing up to the counter and sliding down until he rests on his elbows his tennis shoes or wet. He never takes off his wet shoes and he never gets colds.
Lo Bosworth: From Reality Star to CEO of Love Wellness
"Today. Lobos worth joins us on skimmed from the couch. She is the founder and CEO of Love Wellness. A Body Care Company. That's changing the conversation about self care for women. You may know her name from her time on reality TV shows including the hills and Laguna beach which we all watch. I certainly did but in the past decade low has also made a name for herself as an entrepreneur and a businesswoman. So we are very excited to have you with us. Welcome to skimmed from the couch. Thanks for having me you guys. We're going to start how he start all interviews with just give me a resume for us so for the past four years. I've been the founder and CEO of Love Wellness and two point. We make clean personal care products for women And we also create a lot of really empowering education for women About their bodies so that they know how to take care of their bodies better before that I was really heavily involved in the content creation space and I created a ton of wellness and food content. Just before that. I was actually a student at the French Culinary Institute right injury and we're going to talk about God. It was so good it had always been my dream to go to culinary school. I love cooking. I do love cooking and so a lot of content at the time was sort of centered on wellness nutrition and food before that I was a partner in a different tech startup that failed spectacularly. It was called revelry is irony really this yes so this was like twenty twelve which is when we started. Yeah yeah since you the scam. I remember twenty twelve and we had this idea that we wanted to put cute party supplies all too hard partying a box like a curated experience and it turns out that it's really hard to put thirty different products from different manufacturers into a box and ship it at a cost effective price. The boxes were enormous. I wanted to pivot. But my co-founder didn't anyway didn't workout. Before that I wrote a book that's when I was living in L. A. Still and then before that I was on the hills before that I was at Ucla. And before that I was on Laguna beach before that I was in high school. So that's it so when something that is not on your wikipedia linked in bio that. Maybe we didn't see on TV either that we should know about you. We actually just updated my wikipedia like two weeks ago because Rizzi are publicists was like have you ever updated your wikipedia like no. That sounds like a horrible thing to do for yourself. Right to go on your wikipedia read through it and then be like this is the crazy. I don't WanNa pull up. The old version was pretty cringe worthy. It like went into episode detail on my. How is this relevant off? Wow so when you google then so what do you think is something that is deeply misunderstood about you? I think for me and I have just started to talk to people about this with love wellness. I haven't really done too many interviews or spoken about this company at great length yet and I think for me sort of coming to terms with the transition between being somebody who was on television. And when you're on reality. Tv definitely put into a certain box right. And then if you are an influence or you're put into a certain box and so how do I sort of bridge the gap between living in that space and being taken seriously as an entrepreneur and the founder of business? That's doing really really well. So how do I reconcile that? And how do people that know me from a distance? Reconcile that so. I think that that's something that we sort of talk about often. And I think part of why I'm out doing interviews because I've been working so hard on this for the past four years and we we really feel like we're making a difference and so why wouldn't I want to share that story but it's definitely something that I feel like. I have to still overcome. You know what I mean. Yeah I think that makes sense. So let's get into that a little bit more because we want to talk about your journey from when people started to get to know you to obviously what you are doing today. I love wellness so to start out. I mean as you said you were a high school student and then everything else happened you everything change which is when I think back if someone had filmed my high school experience I would die. Yeah what was it like shoo? Be Not even a young adult like a k. The kid child Yes how old are you when you started well so it was my junior year when MTV I came to Laguna and they were interested in doing something and at that point we were a little unclear on what that was and then I believe if memory serves correct it was like the summer before senior year or senior year that they recorded that first season of Laguna beach and the show premiered my very first week that I was a college student and it was traumatic. It was right within Perez Hilton. Was starting to hop off and all of those blogs if you recall And all of a sudden we were on this show that had instant overnight success and social media didn't exist back then you know. They live because God but facebook was in its first European facebook. And so you know you're a kid you're on this show. You don't have any way to communicate with people in the way that you do now and so people got to know us as we were portrayed on television and yes we were children right and so we tried to do our best to not look stupid so obviously as a kid you look stupid. They were also trying to make you again. That was the of course point of reality. Tv is to make its nonsensically latest story. Yeah I know so as kids you know you have to get parental permission to be able to film. How did you convince your parents let you do this? My mom was not about it but my dad was like this is cool. What do you think like you were going to get out of it? My Dad is a really smart guy and I think from a career Opportunity Perspective. He sought from the very beginning. He was like you could really do something with this. And for years after the fact when people would come up to me in public. I would pretend that I wasn't me because I was so embarrassed. And he was like Lauren. You just have to own this. Why are you so reluctant to just own what you have done and try to use it to your advantage and your dad was saying. I think you could really do something with this. Who What did you think you were going to be when you grow up? Like what was what did he think this could be a platform to do. I wanted to be a doctor actually. I wanted to be a dermatologist or plastic surgeon and I love biology. I think medicine is so fascinating but I'm not great at math and so when I was at school I actually was like sort of on the pre med track but couldn't get through those terrifically difficult math classes. Which is disappointing. But I think it lends itself to my interest in in wellness and health and in general. So it's definitely still a passion of mine. All of that information is really sticky and my brain. It's the stuff that I think about all day long and I really care about. But it's when you get cast on television show and it changes your life sort of derails any plans that you had before looking back at the attention that all of you guys got and now looking at how many people are young in either college or their careers and are blasting themselves all over social media and sometimes that can be a good brand building decisions and sometimes you go into a job interview and I definitely look up of course their profile. And it's not Weiss. What advice do you have for people who are thinking about how to present themselves? I would just say to exercise caution more than anything else. I'm somebody that doesn't go onto instagram. It like wrestling with me to get me to post something on instagram. I don't WanNa do it? It's like when you have five dollars in your bank account. You don't WanNa look in your bank account so I have a very different relationship with social media than I think. A lot of people do of course when you post something and you get likes. It feels good like that experience. I don't think is different for anybody. But for me I think just because of the experience of being on a reality show and feeling so judged for doing something like that and feel like I always had so much more to offer. I'm always a little bit hesitant to put anything out into the universe from an emotional experience that something that you know. I'm still working through. Are you looking back that you agreed to do the show? Yeah it's really not in my personality do stuff like this. I never wanted to be somebody who was like unknown person. You know what I mean. It just sort of happened when Laguna Beach I started. We didn't even know what the show is going to be. We thought it was like you remember that. Show true life we do. We kinda thought it was gonNA be like that. Just a documentary style. Look at kids that lived in this part of the country and then we go away and it didn't go away did not never been away. And so it's just been me trying to figure out how to be satisfied with my life knowing that it'll never go away so obviously we're gonNA reach became. The hills became such a part of the Zeitgeist for this age group. And you're right hasn't gone away and we heard it is weird and the fact that you're like weird. It's really weird. Like I feel like I know you hear you had to develop your career and and essentially your public persona. Yeah after the show. Yeah walk us through your mental state. At this moment you're early. Twenty s at this point yes Early twenties so I guess it would have been like thousand ten right Thousand Eleven. Yes so blogs were just becoming a thing and they were like. It was still really early days on me. Song didn't exist yet. There is that one girl on Youtube. Who do the lady Gaga makeup videos? Michelle fan is like the only person who is influencing the time and so. I know that that age is all of us. Whatever I think for me. I've always loved writing. I've always loved expressing myself creatively and so I started to write. I had my own website for a period of time and just started to create content and actually had some kids that I went to Ucla with like writing articles. Moore's writing articles about stuff and from there. I wrote a book but truly I had no clue what I was doing at that point. I I suppose I didn't realize that what I was doing was actually laying the foundation for my future in terms of content creation. But at that point nobody could monetize their content. And so if you were doing it you're just doing it because you enjoyed it and I want to drill down on kind of what your motivations are at this point. Because was it this thing that I signed up for in highschool took on a life of its own and I now need to make money to a degree. It was about making money but remember at the time. Nobody who's blogging was earning any money. I couldn't see the clear Pathak. I think for me I wanted to have my own voice okay. I think that's what it was about right. I wanted to have some kind of platform where I could express myself and try to get outside of you know the space that I had been in for the past few years and I think that originally that was sort of the
The Mcstay Family Murder: Setting the Scene
"The mcstay family had recently moved into their new house on on a nice cul de sac in fallbrook California Nets. At the time they disappeared. They had relocated from a beachside apartment in San Clemente. Joey and summer next day had been making plans working on home renovations when they stopped responding to texts and phone calls on February Fourth Twenty ten Joseph was forty he owned and operated earth inspired products misses a business at designed installed water fountains. It had been. Joey's dream to be self employed Loyd in order for him to spend as much time as possible with his sons Johnny h four and Joseph Junior h three. Joey's summer was a licensed assist real estate agent. She taken some time off in order to be a stay at home mother. Yeah and to work on the house. 'cause there was a lot of work to be done there. They big cleanser this house. Stay Dead Joey and summer had each been married once before when they met and according to friends they fell in love quickly and they were just crazy about each other and quite happy. So let's go into summer. Joey's history is a bit just to get a better understanding of who they were as people and who they were as a couple before this all happened. So Joey's birth name was Joseph Allen Ashley. His Mother Susan married his biological logical father. Robert Lee right out of high school but the marriage just didn't last very long at all. Susan then met Patrick mcstay. Nineteen in seventy one and Patrick was quite happy to take over his. Joey's father he and Susan married in nineteen seventy two. They were married and and Patrick adopted Joey with Robert. Ashley's permission which I found pretty interesting and with this adoption Joe. His name was legally changed to Joseph. Brian mcstay then in nineteen seventy-three. Joey's brother Michael was born. And Joey was a doting big brother. Who really love to help out with Michael's care but unfortunately Patrick and citizens marriage didn't last long either and they divorced in nineteen seventy five and and they would continue to have some back and forth issues over the years? Although Susan remarried and maintained custody of Joey and Michael the two boys did continue to spend in time with their father Patrick and for a while in his teens joey went to live with his dad in Dallas Texas. So according to Patrick the father he was is very close with Joey. A very good relationship is consistent adopted kid right right Berkeley her very good relationship. Well I mean. He came in pretty early in. Joey's life so there wasn't a lot of you know arguing back and forth about anything not a lot of that. You're not my real father stuff through now. Joey met his first wife Heather in nineteen ninety and they got married in nineteen ninety two in nineteen ninety six. They had a son now. Al Joanne Heather lift in San Clemente near the beach. Had his father's pretty wealthy Yona jewelry store in Laguna beach but he really likes Joey and he helped give his daughter just an absolutely beautiful wedding and before he met and married Heather Joe. It had several jobs he worked as a waiter and bartender. He also started his own small business designing and selling products now later. He began designing small waterfalls and fountains in his garage. He borrowed a little bit of money from his father opened a shop which he called Naturally Dana Point and by late nineteen ninety six was quite successful. He had made over two hundred thousand dollars in sales then he brought his brother Michael and open naturally DP fountains with the least warehouse for the production. So he's starting to move up a little bit here. Yes very hard worker very motivated. But Heather enjoys marriage. Rich fell apart and he found out that heather was having an affair and she had become pregnant by her lover but still he kind of blamed himself at least in part are because he'd been working a lot so he wasn't spending much time with her. He tried to work things out even told heather that he would happily raise the new baby as his own But it was too late. Heather was already in love with this other guy and she decided on a divorce but apparently this was devastating to joey. He was still in love with heather so he was pretty heartbroken and depressed any moved in with his mom and according to her he went through months and months of depression. He and his brother Michael continued to run the fountain business though and eventually they got together with a computer expert named Dan. Kavanagh Dan and help them build a website so they could begin doing their business as earth inspired products online so people could go online and order fountains so this is really opened up things for them then. Joey did meet summer. That was in two thousand four. They were introduced by. Joey's friend who was named macgyver. So I don't remember. He had enough his parents liked the TV show. It's a strange name choices in it or yeah so summer was just breaking up with her longtime boyfriend. Vic and Joey and summer's relationship moved fast but she was worried about how vic was going to react to her being with someone a new so soon she didn't own a house with vic and had to go through the legalities of getting her name off of the property in the mortgage and getting some money out of that so summer was a bit eccentric and she had been known by more than one name so this would end up causing a lot of speculation after the family's family's disappearance like what was going on with her. She was born Virginia Lisa Aranda and had also been known as SUMMER MARTELLI SUMMER ARANDA RANDOM MARTELLI LISA Aranda and Lisa Martelli Summers mom raised her and her two siblings on her own as a single mom in both California and Chicago and according to summer's mother Martelli was the surname of Summers Stepdad. Now another thing that summer did that would lead some people to question things was that she was also known to have taken some years off her age when speaking to people. But there's no evidence that she used this new birth date on any legal documents family members including her sister. Heavens suggested that her name changes were just her own preference and it wasn't anything anything to avoid any legal entanglements. She was just the kind of person who wanted to make up her own name. She went to live in California and be named summer and she did did. She did it so summer gave birth to Joey's first son Johnny in two thousand five and in less than two years later Joseph Junior was born a summer had an aversion to hospitals and both boys were delivered at home shortly after Joseph. Juniors born Joe in summer got married and this is a small ceremony in Orange County. The summer side of the family didn't attend. She didn't seem very close to family. And this worry. Joey's mother so the night before the wedding summer had called her family s and not to come to the wedding and stole his mom. Susan was never quite sure awesome redundant no but it seems like. Joey knew why he wasn't questioning it. So you know there were issues but what family doesn't have issues really. Were your those issues. His issues right and these were a little extraordinary. I guess but who knows what was going on and it was a small second marriage. So maybe it wasn't a big deal. Having family. There is a bigger deal to some people than others where I would put that as a priority. I'd like they're where my family at my wedding. Of course right. Yeah but not all. My family came to my wedding. We'll important one stood. Oh okay well. According to a lot of people though summer was very jealous of Joe his first wife Joey and heather shared custody of their son Jona. Joey's friends friends and family said that summer was very caring Jona even though she wasn't always thrilled with heather. Summer did complained to her sister. Tracy that heather would barge barge into their house regularly. You know even walking in when Joey's in the shower kind of weird and she would drop off Jona without calling ahead and just kind of expect. Expect summer to Babysit so summer was trying to get along and she put up with it at first but eventually she told Joey that she was going to have to break up and leave if he didn't set some boundaries with the ex wife now to me that seems totally reasonable for those to me too yeah. I'm not just a working or drop off daycare right. No Yeah and you're not married to him anymore. So what are you walking into the House for is if you live here. Durham my house. Yeah Komo Yard. That's right so I totally get that. I mean it's territorial thing if nothing else plus. It's disrespectful very disrespectful. To summer summer and to summer and Joey's relationship maybe not the best thing for Jona to see either possibly not
"laguna beach" Discussed on Reality Life with Kate Casey
"Welcome back to another episode of Reality Life with. Casey hope that you're having a great week that you've got some great plans for the weekend. I am going to Utah with my family for what I like to call the shining inspired weekend in park city I will be freezing in cold. I do not like snow. I don't like being cold but I am going to rough it for the sake of my family so think of me. Good news is I've I have made contact with an actual real housewife of Salt Lake City. And we'll be meeting up with them and I hope to report some details and the next episode food so tune back in just you can hear what I found out. I watched the season premiere of Summer House. I don't know guys. It feels a little bit. It like Carl and Lindsey our third year seniors and Jules as a freshman. I don't know I I feel like a lot of the shows you've got the OH. Jeez and then. They're such an age age disparity. You're like I don't think these people would ever hang on real life so I don't know how long I can hang on but I'm going to try to try to make it through through the season is so don't love the House that they're staying in. I feel like it's like a prison. I don't feel like they don't like it either. It has to be some sort of SPEC backhaus that they can't sell them the Hamptons. I'd love to know where it's located though severe hamptons expert. Please let me know. especially if they're filming the summer and you're somebody any who loves to spend time in the HAMPTONS report back. I'd also love to know about Jackie on real housewives of New Jersey's house in the Hamptons in in other words. If you'RE A hamptons real estate expert if you could maybe report into the show and give us some sort of tutorial on where all these houses are located also also aren't we pretty positive kyle and Amanda will never get married. I don't know why they're engaged. It's a total buzzkill to this house for engaged couple to be there so so I don't know if I'm the only one here but I just feel like it's a total buzzkill because when I was growing up in Philadelphia the whole thing about the summer house thing is that it's a bunch of young professionals living together so you don't know who's GonNa be hooking up with whom friends are going to be coming into the house. No no one would be engaged staying in the summer house. No because you all pay like a couple of hundred dollars a month or whatever to stay in the house together and everyone comes with the expectation that they're gonNA stay on cots. They're gonNA sleep on the floor knowing gauge couple would withstand stand a situation like that so it makes zero sense now in other news this episode. I'm thrilled about because I like a good walk down memory lane. I love nostalgic interviews. Because I've been watching reality TV forever and like you guys all no no. I've just encyclopedia knowledge. Almost every reality show. I've ever watched so I've always wondered about people that were on Laguna beach because really l. e. aired before social media really became so prevalent so I'm interested to know what people on that show experienced reinstall because it was right before that wave. Do they feel like they kind of escaped much of the criticism that comes with being on the show today so it happens that I have run into a couple of times into Casey Reinhardt. Now Casey Brown in town because she has toddlers just like might my kids age so I ran into a couple of times. Said you've got to come on the show so I finally got a chance this week to go over to her house now. Casey was was on the beach but she also won cupcake wars and went on to start a cupcake business though what you should know. His background is that her stepfather is the person and who created the frozen Burrito. They live a life that is like they need to be on a reality show but they don't want to be on a reality show their lifestyle is like lifestyles of the rich of the rich and famous. Were there the personification of lifestyles of the rich and famous. If you look at their instagram she'll just go on a trip on like a huge yacht like it's insane so I go over to her house Monday and Dan. The House is beautiful and I walk in. Of course she's like in head to toe Chanel and I meant like jeans right and she offers me a donut donut. It's on a Hermes plate there. The staircase is like out of MTV cribs. And there's a fire on and I just kept laughing. Fina myself thinking thank God. The interview is not done at my house because she'd be like who. When can I get the hell out of here on at the end of the interview? Her her kids show up because they had been Like a tutoring class. We both share the same teacher. And she's like a fairytale she's like Mary poppins where she's greeting the kids and she squatting down. She's hugging them. And I just felt like men. My kids really missed out because my kids come home and I'm like hey what the hell is wrong with you. Pick up your shoes. Did you do your homework. And I swear to God if I find another ping pong ball on the floor for someone will never live to see another day like I am so mean. Compared to her. She's like mother goose so I wanted to catch up with her but I also wanted to ask her about what she thought about. Ever been on real housewives of Orange County because everybody in this county is is in confusion why she would not be on the show because she epitomizes to me a Newport coast woman who lives in a very beautiful over the top house and has a great lifestyle like she and her friends are the kind of women who are in like head to toe luxury items and have these over the top vacations and my friends are like in running close incomplete complaining about having to drop off at soccer practice so it was interesting to just catch up with her but I have to say. She's the nicest person that walked her. You know those people that you meet and you think this can't be real like she cannot be this nice. She actually really. Is that Nice. So it's really nice that someone who has had such privilege is so charitable and so kind and I think you're GonNa Fall in love with her because she is the real deal she's so sweet and very happily married and has made a great life for herself and has so much going on. So Oh a great walk down Memory Lane if you love nostalgic interviews but then I also got a chance to talk to reality Steve because he is the guy who knows absolutely absolutely everything about about the bachelor now. I made sure not to get a spoiler because I know that there's some of you that if I were to ask him about the winter. You'd Chopin my house with a pitchfork and murdered. But I assure you I am not spoiling the show. You can still listen to this and still. I don't know smoke a cigarette in your car. You will be very very happy so I wanted to catch up with him. Ask Him about the season but actually also ask them about what's going on behind the scenes of the show. which is you know that that kind of stuff right up my alley? So Casey Brown and Reality Steve This episode so here we go the reality. Steve has a huge website. He has been spoiling the bachelor for several seasons. Giving US major scoop into every season we will not not spoil the ending for you. But I'm thrilled to talk to him. He's my old podcast team pal to ask him about the season Steve. Welcome back to the show. Hey Kate how are you great first question out of the Gate Peter. The pilot is this guy here for love or as I suspect. Is he here because he wants is to become a host on the CMT. I'm really just kinda thrown off by Peter's whole thing because of all the bachelors we've had recently all of them have gone on to do some sort of I want to get into hosting. I WANNA get into you know influencing stuff. I want to improve improve my brand. Peter has made it pretty clear and since season the seasons stopped filming. He's going back to his job. You just he's a pilot for Delta and he has made no bones owns about the fact that he's not quitting being a pilot. I'm thinking you know. I just think the bachelor guys do it. Because it's a great perk. It's like wow I get to be the star of a network reality show for two and a half months all the things that are gonNA come along with it if I find somebody great. If I don't so many more women now I know want me and I have way more pick of the litter. What are some of the perks that the bachelor gets are you? Do you know of any like do you get a personal. So trainers you get a nutritionist. You get a stylist do you. Get a publicist manager or are you a short management for a period of time after the bachelor ends what do you what do they they get out of it on the back end on the back end. It's more about just your your your name and your visibility is out there and that's why with eater. It's different like nothing that Peter Does on the bachelor is going to help his piloting career. You know he's just GonNa go back and the pilot for Delta Post show. You're not giving any sort of like I duNno trainer or most of them end up getting agents or publicists to due to help them navigate their career because these people can do it on their own. So it's just more of your your now visible figure in quote Unquote Report Hollywood. And while you might be on the C. or D. or even illest you're on the list as opposed to if you never one on this show before the only people who know your name our family and friends so it certainly helps very popular show. It's very it's part of the pop culture lexicon It's it's been around longer than almost any reality show outside of survivor. It's just it's a staple in in this community and in the reality allergy community and and it's not going away anytime soon. In fact they're adding more shows to the bachelor franchise not taking away stuff. We're only going down to one after one season pro talented year like they're adding shows we've got the bachelor listen to your heart which is now going to start in April just currently in filming. Which is Chris? Harrison is the host twenty people live in a mansion. They all have music backgrounds. It's star is born meets bachelor. In paradise they go on dates. That are all musically themed there's going to be eliminations and there's going to be one couple at the end but it's going to be under the bachelor umbrella. Do you think that they brought him back because the.

Betty Lee stayed home with sandy and Teddy Betty Lee was an intelligent strong woman who encouraged the two children to be competitive and work hard in school. A school turned out to be pretty easy for Ted who is a pretty bright guy but he also had a photographic memory so so steadying was very easy for him when he was in the eighth grade. His father was transferred East Aurora New York to be in charge of a steel plant. Yes so this was the ideal family. This is how I picture your childhood. The almonds had their family dinner every night followed by homework and they'd go to their various sporting events. Let's Boban was Ted's Little League Baseball coach to Ted was also on the swimming team and he grew up to be very athletic reaching an adult height of six six foot. Four so very tall in high school. Of course Ted was on the football team but he was different than a lot of the jokes because he played the piano quite well and he got excellent grates. He did have several girlfriends throughout his teen years being both a jock in academic he was widely Popular Sandy. His sister would say that she and Ted had wonderful childhoods and as adults they did remain. Close here a bit. He did pretty well in high school. uh-huh here he is an athlete and a break. Y- Y yeah. He had a lot going for him but he heard let girlfriends well. I don't know about a Ladda. He he had several. Okay yeah her nose a lot more than several several more than a lot a lot more than several several psych a handful allot what is dozens. Okay that's the way it is in my brain her think you're embellishing a little bit. But that's okay. It's just how I see it. Subjective now now the other half of this equation that will be talking about his generous rand. Her upbringing was far more complicated than Ted's generous his mother. Marie was born to a California farmer and his wife. Maria is acute moody little girl. She did actually join a convent for a year and then decided it wasn't working for her to during World War. Two Marie was a pretty much a party girl. She went out dancing and drinking. Sometimes Nice flighty. Sometimes the slug some family members who were worried that she might be suffering from some mental illness like manic depression but Marie had no desire to seek mental until health. Help Murray's father died just a few years before her mother died of cancer and that left Marie dependent on her older brother. So Marie married a soldier. They had two children but she was negligent. Mother and her children were taken from her and she got divorced she then Mary Clearance Rand. Who is another soldier and this is a few years later? Right submarine clearance had a daughter named Dally but Marie went back to partying while Dolly was still a toddler so oh Dolly was left with family members while Marie would drink and dance and meet new men she met an Italian man named Generoso and had a short lived affair with him mm-hmm in her long beach apartment and after about a week of hooking up Generoso was out of marine life went back to Italy but then she found out that she was pregnant agnete and it wasn't by her husband so Marie wrote to general so and told him about her pregnancy but he never responded so her fourth child who she did give. Her husband's last name was named Jennifer Rosa after her father but Maria didn't take long to return to her partying ways family members didn't call generosity by her given name either because a lot of them knew that this child had been named after this Italian guy they called her gen or Joe she became very close with her older sister. Dolly after Marie began to leave the two home alone to go out and have fun again. So Generoso was four and Allie was seven when they moved to oceanside California with their mother. Their uncle Al was also divorced by then he lived in a ground floor apartment in a three family house that he had purchased. There were tenants on the third floor and Marie and her two daughters were allowed to live on the second floor without paying rent summary even hired in English housekeeper who acted as a baby sitter for her. Two girls in the housekeeper was kind signed to the girls as time went on they really began to prefer the housekeeper to their own mother. But things didn't go well. The childhood just continued to be problematic. Matic Little Generoso was sexually molested as a child by a man who were mother had trusted as a family friend and then the English housekeeper was fired by her. HYUNG-CHOL AL for having men to the House so quite a mess it sure is and it gets messier. Two years after all this Murray felt a lump in her breast within a couple of years she had metastatic breast cancer which had reached her name. Anne Marie died when Generoso is just ten years old so chandelier she and Dolly. Her older sister went to live with her uncle. Al In the meantime he had remarried he lived in an exclusive Laguna Beach neighborhood. Dolly show general. Sir Sir Photo for biologic father. WHO's a sailor named Generoso? Now this is the first time generosity knew that her mother had not been married to her father and she. She resented her mother for lying to her for failing to protect her while sure but they said that from that time forward generoso was a different girl she it was determined to be strong and to be rich. She didn't ever want to have children of her own either. She decided that her mother's death had been a good thing and now she it was free to live a better life. Uncle Al's new wife on March was a smart and financially well off woman generosity admired her her and ended up having kind of special friendship with her March said that she wanted generosity to live with them but the house was really full and there was a a lot of friction between Genera and her cousins Generoso was prone to temper tantrums and she could be very jealous devious and manipulative in her mind. It was her way or no way in Dolly had been a fairly troubled teen also maybe not to the extent that China Rosa's but eventually Dolly was sent to live with her older half sister. Terry Terry's husband and their two kids and Santa Clara California an aunt. Marge had a rich friend who lived in Laguna beach with her husband and their two children. These folks had an eight bedroom house on a horse ranch so jane the woman who was living in house offer to adopt generosity and generous moved in with Jane and the family. She became very good at horseriding more than good actually. She competed shows and she even one ribbons. She also began to do well in school so seems like she's coming out of her Funchal Obita. She seemed to really thrive there. She learned to play the piano. She got braces to fix her teeth and she seemed to have things going pretty well. She had money she. Her loving parents foster parents appearance. Whatever and in a state with their own horace right? So you'd think everything was great and she could be quite charming coming but she was continuing to have a frightening temper big tantrums to whenever anything wasn't going her way and as generous entered late adolescence she had really changed from the sweet girl to a really rebellious troublemaker. In nineteen sixty seven. Jane Call generalises half sister Terry and told her that Generoso was causing trouble with the other. Kids generous was demanding jealous and she just seemed like she could never have enough material possessions. Jane and her husband couldn't controller. They were really tired and kind of desperate to be relieved of her. Terry was well aware of how it felt to be abandoned. She'd had a similar childhood and she felt sympathy for her little sister so she agreed to take her in and and remember Terry was already parenting Dali. Her husband was a high school English teacher. who was very patient and good with the kids? Terry and her husband had two kids of their own two daughters Julian. Amy and their house was pretty comfortable. They had four bedrooms and two baths but it wasn't anything like the estate that generosity was coming from and it wasn't good enough for her. She was really unhappy about being there and became came angry and very resentful. She no longer lived on the estate and she had to leave her horse behind. That really pissed her off. Life wasn't fair to her. She she said and she was just kind of angry at the whole world. When Dolly was eighteen she got her own apartment in San Jose? She moved out of the House the Teri and her husband had Dolly soon became promiscuous and got herself into drugs. terrier also been sexually abused as a child and when Dolly moved out Terry became very depressed and as she sent deeper and deeper into depression. She generosity butted heads almost seemed like generous new. The Terry has some weaknesses and was using against her and then Terry's husband began Genaro says that influence on the younger daughters. They sire getting away with do things and they themselves got into trouble right so this is just difficult. And it ended up being really heartbreaking for Terry who had only wanted to help her sisters sisters but she and her husband finally had decide that they just couldn't handle generosity and terry wasn't feeling well. The house was just kind of getting out of control. They told generous that the situation wasn't working finally and she was given one month's notice to find a new place to live generosity. Orosa cried but Terry promise that they would continue to help her however they could and generosity finally said she understood but you know this was her fourth big rejection. She'd been abandoned by her mother. Her uncle Jane Reagan who owned The estate and now tearing her husband so she was sad but you know really building. This deep seated anger so generous ended up living with another family who were friends with her aunt and this family had two teenage daughters others of their own and they lived in Los Angeles so things are okay at this house for a while. The family found generous to be very creative and pretty talented anted artistically. But she was Moody's Hell.
The Recording Academy is imploding the week before the Grammys
"Welcome to the frame John Horn Sexual Harassment Arabe and denial claims of corrupt practices. No it's not a new soap opera. It's what the recording academy is dealing with just a few you days before. It's big event the Grammy Awards last week. The academy put its president and CEO. Deborah Dugan on administrative leave yesterday she filed a sexual harassment and discrimination complaint against the Recording Academy for more on the latest developments. WE TURN TO GEM AS WAD senior music editor at variety jam. Cham- welcome back to the show. Thank you so if we believe everything that was in the complaint which was filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Listen on behalf of Dugan one of the most remarkable allegations in well the the allegations sorta go in two directions. They're the ones against her personally. She says she was sexually harassed by a very prominent attorney who works closely with with the academy. She said that her ideas for changes were opposed by the board and top executives at the academy. And you know speaking with sources close to the situation. I'll say she didn't really fit in and it was a challenging doing situation for now having said that the complaint alleges is that there are all kinds of kind of insider deals going on inside inside the academy it alleges that people who are connected with certain artists are voting on nominating committees and financially the doesn't allege this is actually a fact the academy which has no in-house lawyer is paying millions and millions of dollars every year to outside law firms for work worked. She deemed unnecessary and sources say and her complaint alleges that she went into a meeting gave a big presentation about changes she planned to make which included stopping or at least dramatically cutting back payments to those law firms and three weeks later she was put on administrative leave. So let's look at a couple issues here. Hear the Recording Academy says that Dugan was shown the door or put on administrative leave because of the way she treated the former assistant to port. Now what does dougans defense of that issue. Her complaint says that is untrue that is inaccurate. And if you look at the academy's claims the public claims that they've made there are a lot of explosive words. Used the upshot of what they're saying is that she was mean and you know I mean. Do you remove move your top executive ten days before the big show because she was mean to somebody you know I mean it's just it strains credulity a bit especially if that executive we're not a woman and Dugan's complaint says the allegations are true. They say that the person in question was not. I'm not up to the job that she expected her and she was trying to find another place for in the organization in the EEOC complaint Dugan makes a couple of very explosive charges. One involves a rape allegation against her predecessor. Neil port now and the other describes some inappropriate behavior of not outright sexual actual harassment by Joel Katz. Who is a top lawyer that works with the recording academy what specifically she alleging for both port now and cats the allegation against port? Now this is an actual rape allegation. Apparently a foreign. That was the word they used. Female singer Songwriter on writer. WHO's in the KADEMI member who performed at Carnegie Hall you know? He admitted there was an allegation. He said it was it investigated and he was exonerated now. Presumably he was was investigated by the Academy in terms of her own claim of sexual harassment. She says that Before she had even started just a couple of weeks after she had signed a deal to become. CEO Joe Joe Cats took her out to dinner somewhere in Laguna Beach and she alleges she put the moves on her. We're talking with riders. Jim Aswa about what is going on inside. The Recording Academy so Porno said the rape allegations are outrageous terribly hurtful and untrue. A lawyer for Joel Katz said he categorically denies the sexual assault or harassment allegations. What does the Academy said? The academy has not responded and as of right now typically to the allegations. When it came out yesterday I went to them? Asked for a comment immediately. It took about an hour and all they did was basically regurgitate the accusations they had made about Dugan the day before and over the preceding couple of days they have happening addressed the other allegations and they may not. I mean that's the last question there are allegations and Dugan's EEOC complaint about how white and male leadership leadership and voting is inside the academy. But something that really caught my eye. I'm GonNa read a paragraph from the complaint is this. The board uses these committees. These are nominating committee for the grammys as an opportunity to push forward artists with whom they have relationships indeed it is not unusual for artists who have relationships with board remembers and who ranked at the bottom of the initial twenty artists to end up receiving nominations. So what that is suggesting is that the grammy nominating automating process itself is suspect that to me is the thing that should most concern the public. A lot of the rest of this stuff is inside baseball and and you no very legitimate complaints but you know that depends on how much you care about the makeup of the recording academy the fact that the nominations are skewed is something that has been suspected for a while because every year there are these kind of mysterious nominations that appear in certain categories. And you know those of us who watch is this. You know we've heard of most of these artists you know every year you'll just be like who would that and you know we might find out that a producer and engineer is on the nominating committee. The median Oh hey look there asong that album that they produced or engineered there. It is an old look also on the committee is someone who works at that label So Oh you know that sounds horrible. It doesn't necessarily have to be because the other side of it is the fact that the people who are good enough to get on the nominating committees prominent enough to be working with a lot of these artists. However I'm not saying that's the case all the time gem as Wad is senior music editor at variety gem? Thanks so much for coming on the show

The Future of Gaming
"For high school athletes. Getting scouted to play on a big league. Sports team is the dream they hope. Someday Day recruiters will be standing on the sidelines watching during practice or come to their games and sign them up for college teams or even sometimes professional ones. That happened a sixteen year old. Kyle gears door. He goes by the nickname Boga but the recruiting process was a bit different gears. Off wasn't out on a field field joe he was in his parents house in Pottstown Pennsylvania sitting in front of his computer playing the video game Gabe fortnight streaming his games almost daily for Amazon's twitch a website for gamers and. That's where a scout for an eastwards team called the sentinel saw in play. He signed a one year contract with the Sentinel's back in March and that paid off for gear store and the sentinels almost immediately. Yup Right here. This was in July at the Arthur. Ashe Stadium in flushing New York. That's the same stadium where tennis is players compete in the. US Open gear stuff. was there on the field for the first fortnight World Cup and it was a spectacle spread of players across the screen. There's your talk ten on the left side. The top players in the world sat on the field behind computer monitors side by side playing against each other in the virtual game which was is then projected onto multiple matrons for thousands of fans and stands bogus parents in the audience of course as well cheering him on and they weren't the only ones fortnight has about two hundred fifty million registered users and more than a million of them or streaming the World Cup Competition Jim Champion and the prize. Money was worth a lot. The three million dollars of that gears dorm took home about two point. Four million the sentinels got to keep the rest according to people familiar with the matter but even so boga and other eastport competitors like him are living. The teenage dream getting paid to play video games epic the company that makes fortnight. Isn't the only game in town. activision blizzard and take two interactive software have launched professional professional leagues around their games. Electronic Arts has a fee e World Cup a video game version of the soccer World Cup with thirty two players competing in multiple apple rounds until one country player comes out on top revenue from EA. Sports is expected to climb around twenty six percent this year to reach about one point. Two billion dollars hours while at the fast growing need it's still just a small part of the global video game. Industry is estimated to be worth one hundred fifty billion from the Wall Street Journal. This is the future of everything. I'm Qatari Yokum. This episode is part three of our highlights series where we bring you the best from the Wall Street. Journal's Tech Live Conference in Laguna Beach California for Three Days Wall Street Journal editors gathered alongside leaders in the tech community to discuss everything from the future of artificial intelligence to data privacy today. We're focusing on the future of games. Hi Jason Gay. And I'm a sports columnist for the Wall Wall Street Journal. I'm speaking Andrew Wilson the CEO of electronic arts electronic arts or EA as a global leader in the gaming world world especially in sports games. They're the ones who make madden NFL. Fica need for speed apex and of course the Sims the company has more than three hundred million registered players around the world and last year two thousand eighteen to posted a net revenue of five point. One five billion in dollars Andrew spoke to us about how e sports mobile gaming on social networks and mixed reality Games are changing the way people play and also also starts on the industry overall. I want to ask you right at the top. What you were excited about right now like what is happening in your trade? It might be something you are doing but it might be something somebody else's do what is getting you excited right now in gaming if you think about how cloud is going to change the consume everything right so we watch more TV and more music and we listen to music and AL belief is that we're actually started out a blue the lines between real and virtual with the cloud. So you get to place where you get up in the morning and every activity you perform through the day has has some kind of payoff out of a game. You might run to work. It means you have more energy and fee for. You might have a dozen eggs in the fridge. Which means you're sims a fed? You might drive fast. So you'll need speed game is better. You may interact with a whole Gotcha people so you have more power in. PG So this blurring of the lines between the real and the virtual kind of moving getting from a discrete experienced went industry experience. So are there applications locations for businesses to actually game by the workplace people showing up for the nine thirty meeting on time. I think that's happening already. We see that in schooling to where we use game fixations a lot of schooling education is becoming more compelling for a new generation so inevitably it happens in our workplace. That's for sure. Do you think that people can burn out on it or do you think that that is something that will stay the idea that people want that kind of competitive metabolism where they gamified experience social interaction and competition competition at two of the most powerful motives of human behavior that positive so guilt obligation addiction causes as human beings. Do all kinds of things until such point in time is actually actually. This is just really bad and we kick the habit cold Turkey and then we tell all of our friends not to do it as well but social direction and competition the two things that we don't we don't get tired of it kind of drives us throughout our lives and so really the very core of gaming these to call positive motivators of human behavior and provided you do it right and you build over time and and you get the rewards and benefits of those two things that it's not something you boone out on. It's actually something that enriches and extends it enhances your life. What's an example of something that you've experimented with yourself that that you've been surprised? It's been a very sort of exciting satisfying gaming experience candy crush. Who would've thought like doing this and doing this? I mean here. We are five five you six years later and we're still doing it. Yeah Yeah it's a good segue to the next question. which is that? I think of gaming as a business where every now and again there are true phenomenon that just crossed the culture. And what is it like. And you've had some of them. What's that like to have a game? That isn't just a business success but just sort of vaults into the cultural conversation station I think every day you up to build entertainment. You hope is that you're going to detain you. Know tens or hundreds of millions of people I mean as as the providers and creative at a time and I think that's all of our objective when we get up in the morning every now and then it actually happens and all kinds of good things come from that no kinds of challenges come from that. We had a game earlier this year. Old Apex Legends. We brought fifty million people into that game in a month. And that's that's a wonderful thing. I mean that's mind blowing and we we're running around the office cheering. How compelling this game and then all of a sudden you discover there are all kinds of negative manifestations of of that kind of broad appeal cheetahs in in the spice and you get people trying to counterfeit currency in spice and you get bullies in the spice? And then all of these kind of negative manifestations of human behavior that we see in the real world quite frankly also manifest that skyline a will that has this many eight people interacting with it and so there's a whole nother victor of work that we have to do to keep that that experience fun and safe and enjoyable for the people who play. How do you see around corners to predict predict and anticipate? What kinds of Shenanigans might happen at a game or been doing it alone time here? We spent a lot of time thinking about if we were bad bad people. What would we try? And do we go out and hire some bad people to see an awesome. What would they do that works? And then the other thing is is we've written a whole program. Set that that really looks at by human behavior over. Tom's human compensation over time and we're getting better and better through machine learning at predicting where positive energy cartoons on itunes negative or

WSJ Tech D.Live: How Should Tech Firms Be Regulated?
"The. With a special edition of tech news briefing. I'm Charlie Turner in New York for the Wall Street Journal technology, firms are facing increased scrutiny over the role. They play in elections, the dissemination of false or biased news and consumer data breaches, but to what extent should tech firms, especially social media companies be regulated at the Wall Street Journal's de live tech conference and Laguna Beach, California industry officials and politicians weighed in with various suggestions democratic u s Representative row Cana of California said any regulation. That's an acted has to be smart as Tim coke putted. We need well-crafted regulation of and it's not regulation for regulation saying let me give you a couple examples of things that I think actually could get bipartisan support, and this of privacy groups, and technology leaders, for example, I think people should have a right to be notified when there's a data breach. It's ridiculous. If you have months and months, go by and people aren't notified you have access. Now to your health records have access to your financial records, probably should have access to know what's happening to your data. You should have some portability which would increase competition if you could take data from one platform to another, but what about possible legislation from states or congress with regard to overseeing the tech industry, AT and T CEO. Randal Stevenson, said don't leave it up to the states. I don't think Washington right now could agree on the freezing temperature a water. But if there were ever an issue that you would think could get bipartisan coalescence, this is one. I mean, we got we had a mess coming at us literally states independently going out and designing their own privacy regulation, you'd people running companies out there trying to think about how you do business newspapers. How do you do business in a world where you have fifty different regulations legislation and rules around privacy? There are a number of states that are now passing their own legislation around. Privacy, and by the way, net neutrality, and what would be a total disaster for the technology and innovation that, you see happening in Silicon Valley and elsewhere is to pick our head up and have fifty different sets rules for companies trying to operate in the United States. So this is where legislation I think is critical pass a body of legislation around customer data protection that shouldn't be that difficult to pull together. Honestly, don't believe Darrell Issa US Republican Representative from California sounded an optimistic note about possible. Regulation from the incoming congress little regulation will occur. We'll be more thoughtful simply because you have highly divided government after this last election, and it tends to mean that the new guys in town in the house are going to be demanding all kinds of things and they're going to walk into. Okay. You'd better demand. Something we were already interested in or you're not gonna get it on the other hand. Steve bomber former Microsoft CEO. And now the owner of the NBA's LA clippers said regulation was preferable to help. The tech industry and not legislation. I happen to think it's a whole lot better to engage with regulators than it is to leave things to legislative action. A lot of discussion in the ecosystem always be we need laws. We need legislation that in every way is probably the worst thing for everybody. Because the regulators can have a real thoughtful discussion about what the technology permits doesn't permit. The legislators never going to do that regulation in the hands of the FTC. Yeah, I get that. Or the DOJ? I get that the differences. Those are people who can put staff on to really understand the details. And those are some thoughts about regulation from the WSJ tech de live conference when we come back. Steve bomber talks about what businesses can learn from sports teams. This is tech news briefing.

Steve bomber owner of the NBA's, Los Angeles, Clippers and former Microsoft CEO was asked what the similarities and differences were between a company like Microsoft and entertainment franchise like the clippers bomber said. It's all about accountability and winning. Yes, we are in entertainment company, and that's very important thing for me to remember, I tend to think of as a basketball team and yet from a business perspective, we are in entertainment entertainment product. Now, what is the best way to sell tickets? We've done all the statistical analysis. It turns out winning championships is the best way to make your business better. God, it's just like real business. It's all about the product stupid. And frankly, if you win championships got he'll know this. They're still selling a lot of tickets in Chicago years after this guy won a bunch of championships there. So winning the only other thing. Actually that helps you signing superstar having the first pick in the draft. But the best thing is to championships. And so that is what we focus in on. Now, if you think about it, what does that mean, it points to accountability business, you know, people we run around. I we're so we got the quarter getting after the next one. You know, we're marketshare were held accountable. You want accountability? Sports after every game win loose. Sorry. Can't fix it. Next quarter, gone. It's gone. Teamwork. How's your team working your business? How's your team more? Teamwork. Twenty every twenty four seconds. Everybody knows our team work is every twenty four seconds. You can see it. You have to be accountable for it. You think you have customers and shareholders that assess you, yeah, they do, but they're casual casual compared to the millions of fans who are sitting there studying every move who have access to all the perform. Silence data that you do. There's not one piece of information are fans can't see that. We can see that's not true in businesses. So I find a level of count ability frightfully more powerful than I did when I was a CEO that's LA clippers owner Steve bomber on what businesses can learn from sports teams. And that's a special edition of tech news briefing. I'm Charlie Turner in New York for the Wall Street Journal.

Emoluments case alleging Trump violated Constitution can proceed: U.S. judge
"Seeing, coastal, temperatures, hit the eighties. With no real relief from the heat, just yet the valleys inland locations will remain in the triple, digits through, at least the next week. This is China Mendiola with NBC four today in LA. Right now it's seventy six in brea sixty seven in Laguna beach seventy seven seventy seventy-five in. Downing we lead local from the KFI twenty four hour newsroom. I'm Jennifer Jones Lee Handle here Thursday morning the twenty six Big. Stories that we're covering today, the idol wildfire KFI reporter Corbin Carson is there it'll be reporting throughout the. Day and it's not good, news, that's for sure. Horse December the fire up Yosemite, even worse news they have down Yosemite for vacationers and that's a heartbreak because I've been there. And we had to reserve way way in advance also the president in a win looks. Like. The European Union blinked on the. Tariff issue okay Here is a. Case that has come back, and, that is arguing. That the president of the United, States is violating the constitution by making a ton of money off of his properties and that. Foreign corporation and governments are booking his hotels for example and therefore he's making a profit. Now The part of the constitution that is That's involved here is the emoluments clause, and what is a, Molin. Taking money basically just accepting gifts etcetera And it is, says It's real simple the constitution bars federal officials from taking emoluments from any king. Prints, or foreign state well what does the? Amalean, you may ask well certainly the courts in the United States have never answered that because there's never been. An emolument Malaya case As far as the federal officials certainly not the presidents ever been involved so here's, the argument obviously it's much of a political argument. People saying there's a real, constitutional issue a federal judge yesterday rejected President Trump's latest effort to stop a lawsuit that alleges that the. President is violating the constitution, by continuing, to do business with foreign governments making money out of foreign governments from foreign, governments while he, is the president clearly a violation of the constitution according to those people that are. Arguing, that and if filed a lawsuit so? This, ruling US district judge Peter messy out of Maryland will allow the plaintiffs who are suing plaintiffs being the Who. Are the plane liberty this really quick DC attorney general Carl Racine and Maryland attorney general are suing. To have the court declared that I guess he can't do that and whatever, damages are coming out of that at. This point I don't. Know and what it does it allows. The plaintiffs Maryland and the district of Columbia to proceed with, their case because Trump is violated the anti-corruption clause the immoral in Amaleans clause in the constitution in this seems to be the first time a, federal judge had interpreted those provisions and apply the. Restrictions to a sitting president, now if this ruling stands because you know it's going to be appealed instantly now we're looking very closely. At Trump's business which Trump, is not, very good at sharing his businesses he keeps up pretty close to the vest And the argument is a fifty two page opinion that the judge wrote that the constitution's ban on. A Mouly on emoluments could apply to Trump Could cover any business transaction where, foreign governments, deal with, Trump and he derives a profit gain or advantage and that's exactly what's happening you look at the hotel that Trump owns for example in Washington You've got foreign governments. Who book parties for example the government of Kuwait and that happened actually they cancelled one at another at, another hotel and went, ahead and then they booked, the hotel the Trump owns by the way one of the, lawsuits part of this is that the owner, of the other DC hotel. Is suing saying you cost me business that's, on an, individual basis So the organization and the Justice department the Trump organization the Justice department urged messy to dismiss the case because the founding fathers here's the argument had written the clause to stop. Officials from taking bribes not to stop, them from, doing business and if. This goes up to, the court supreme court we're going to find out what an emolument actually is and one of. The arguments that it's being used. Is how in God's name does Donald Trump still own his business is making a pile of money from, foreign governments is being argued and still remain president It's every other official has bailed out of businesses a lot and put, him in blind trusts blind trust means someone else runs them and there's, a firewall and doesn't tell the president. Or the official what's going on with his money and, the official doesn't get back into it until his tenure. In office is over and then some people even bail out of all of their holdings to make sure that there is no conflict for example remember Rex Tillerson secretary of state for a couple of months He was a CEO of Exxon and obviously owned a ton. Of stock, he sold all of his stock he has no more money In. Anything that deals with the, government an Exxon, had a ton of different contracts with the government and President Trump simply won't do that he still maintains his businesses and he says I'm, not dealing with, the day to day operations entering know what that. Means because when Jared Kushner? And Don Jr. who? Were, now quote? Running the businesses? They don't, go to Donald Trump and got here what. Do you think dad what do you think father-in-law which way do I. Go I mean Donald Trump's pretty. Good about staying in control So? It's, not putting? The money away? In a, blind trust it's not selling off assets although The argument in Donald Trump's, favor. Is if he has to sell off his interest in his hotels and the golf courses etc and the buyers know that he has to sell them doesn't that, by definition or practically reduced the price, and effectively the government is forcing. Him to lose money. And there's nothing. In the, constitution says you, have to lose money either it's gonna be fun it really is all, right coming up next I'm gonna have a lot of fun today, is a very. Important holiday and we're, gonna, talk about Catholic contraception also known as. Vatican roulette. And we, are I, love, this.
