The Supreme Court Document Leak, and the Reaction
"The really shocking things here is that people aren't are consumed by the document that was leaked, but they're not consumed by the fact that something was leaked. Shouldn't we be more alarmed by that? That there was a breach of privacy. Can you imagine if it were the other way around that a left wing ruling were leaked. The Department of Justice would pursue these people to the ends of the earth? And say that they were insurrectionists and the like, look, for the left, and this is always been true. You can do anything for the sake of the left.

Abbott Says Agreement Reached to Reopen Michigan Baby Formula Plant
"Abbott agrees to FDA oversight of Michigan baby formula plant. Look, they signed a consent decree yesterday to reopen the Michigan Abbott plant. That consent decree could have been signed a month ago, Abbott is strenuously protested from the beginning that their infant formula had nothing to do with the infant death being investigated across the country. The FDA was using at moving at its usual snails pace, its bureaucratic morass, plunging the country into a baby formula crisis that is real. So they got an order. It's pretty easy to surmise here what happened. Ron klain or someone from the president's office called over to the FDA and said, open that plant. And the FDA said, how do we save a little face here? I know we'll do a consent decree that says they can open the plant. And so their plant will be up and it's going to take a while.

The American People See Right Through the Media's Treatment of Biden
"All right, I want to turn to this poll that just came out Americans, as I said, they get it. We get it. We've got a newly released poll that shows the American people really see through the media. And they see through how the media treats president Joe Biden. Effectively with kid gloves, right? Compared to how they treated former president Donald Trump, according to Rasmussen reports, the majority of Americans say, and I quote, the media does not question president Joe Biden as aggressively as they questioned former president Donald Trump. 54% of likely U.S. voters believe the news media are less aggressive in questioning Biden than they were Trump. Look, it's only 54% though. I mean, to me that to be like 95%, it is very clear that this media is quite biased. It's actually a big deal when they actually challenge him on things. Because they never seem to challenge him, and we've got all kinds of problems going on. In terms of our economy, in terms of the border, in terms of what we're going to continue to face with our economy. In terms of infant formula, that crisis that frankly, the administration should have been all over before it happened, or at least when it happened. Anyway, it seems that most Americans are wise to that. And it's important that we are, right? Because you have to be able to vote for the candidate that's going to offer the best opportunity in, well, November and also, again, in 2024, and if everyday Americans can see through the media as you know what, then I think that that's going to make a real

93: Find What Tickles the Soul - burst 03
"I think a lot of I think a lot of the, you know, at a certain point, I think we reach a place where, you know, listen, I don't need any more character. Life can take it easy on me now. And so I think I had a lot of the grit again just rural Tennessee and especially rural Tennessee where I was, I mean, I wasn't in the absolute deep, deep, deep, deep, deep Woods, but in the 70s and Tennessee where I was out by Hendersonville and gallatin, not like it is today. There was not a whole lot around. So I had quite a bit of what we would call character building and grid just growing up in a single parent home. By the time I got to Los Angeles, the LA part was just trying to build a career in an exceedingly difficult profession where I didn't have I didn't have any nepotism. I didn't have anything, I didn't show up here with anything on my side for lack of a better phrase. Yeah. Well, national was a totally different city back then in the 70s than it is now. I mean now it's the home and hard of a lot of productions, both movies and radio and television. That was not happening way back then in the same way. Now it's Nash Vegas. First of all, it's the number one bachelorette weekend destination in the south. It's number one, even more so than Atlanta. And number two, I mean, yeah, my mother was a country singer, but there's a very famous train station Alan in Nashville called union station that actually country songs have been written about it. It's beautiful. They refurbished it. When I was in high school, it was boarded up in dilapidated. So yeah, you didn't go past, you didn't go past 20th or 21st street towards first street to downtown. When I was a kid or you were looking for trouble and that would be just past Vanderbilt. So it's a very different city now, yes. Yeah. As I say right now, I mean to Nashville and there are many areas that you would stay out of. I mean, it's a totally grown up city and it's safe. It's prosperous. It's really become uptown. Whereas it used to be a hole to begin with. You are correct. There were distinctly places you did not go. That is correct. And now it is. It's just, it's just blown up in the last 15, 20 years. Unbelievable. Yeah. For sure. So do you remember any stories along the way that you can tell the audience? About that journey? Several of them depends on which ones we can allow on air. No, I think we, when we tend to use the word journey, doctor leica, we, a lot of times, as a country that we're very result oriented and I respectfully understand that certainly as an athlete, your result oriented, taking tests where result oriented, and so when we look at journeys, sometimes we wind up just looking at the end of like, oh my gosh, that person is so and so they've gotten to it doesn't matter what industry it is. And so when I tend to look at some of those years, I tend to look back at some of the moments when I should have looked at myself and gone, what the hell are you doing? And one of the key ones for me would have been what I chose to go to Atlanta for two years. I won an event in New York. And I could have gone to New York, but similarly, New York back then, Manhattan back then is not the Manhattan you see today. I mean, people who have not seen Times Square from a perspective of the early 80s to where it is today, Times Square was a place after one or 2 o'clock in the morning, you would just get killed. And so I had been there and for this event and as a guy who grew up in the rural south and who also was a golfer, I didn't really see myself hanging out in Manhattan trying to haul my sticks on the subway somewhere to go play golf. So I chose Atlanta, but I also went to Atlanta with a very old car, $200 in my pocket, and the only person that knew I was coming was the gal who was to be my agent. So I had to I slept in my car for three days in this abandoned Sears parking lot. That is in really upscale Buckhead at the time. It was just this big abandoned building. And it was kind of downhill and there was behind the building thing and I thought, oh, that seems safe. And I literally slept in my car for three days, and then my agent had a client that was in the catering business. And she had a couple of kids that they had moved out. She was an empty nester. And she was kind of a whack a doodle. She might have been kind of a functioning alcoholic. She was funny. And she didn't live that far down peachtree. And I rented a room from her for $50 a week. For about 6 or 7 months and then one of her neighbors was a lawyer and he knew somebody who worked at this really fancy restaurant downtown and he helped get me a job. And once I had a job for 6 or 7 months, I had enough money to finally move out and get my own place. So that's the beginning of a journey right there. That is the beginning of a journey and how did you get motivated? A lot of things were stacked against you. You know, a lot of things, you know how many actors try and never meet their dreams. How did you stay motivated during that process? You know, that becomes the intriguing part about that question for me, which ironically, I've asked a number of people on my own myself. Is we get into the we go the direction in my opinion of nature versus nurture. And I'm someone who believes, I don't think that it's 50 50 personally as a guy who was almost a psychology double major. I do believe we're a little more nurture than we are in nature personally. I think our environment of how we grow up has a little bit longer lasting effect on us and maybe the nature part of us remains a little more a little more hidden, but not always. I think that the way I grew up with just a sister and a mother who was not home very much and was sort of a latchkey kid who learned a lot on his own and had to grow up pretty fast. I think there was just a nurtured part of me that quitting wasn't really in my vocabulary. I don't know if you want to put words to something like that such as stubborn or cocky or defiant or I don't know. It doesn't much really matter. Even just going to the event that I went to in New York that I won, we didn't have any money for me to go to that. I literally had to go around and raise the money to be able to even go on that trip and when I wanted and that's a trophy that sits right

Why Kash Patel Authored Children's Book 'The Plot Against the King'
"The legendary and the great cash Patel. I'll tell you what, I get more cash Patel alerts from people. They're sending me stuff and you're very famous man cash. Charlie, I'm trying to keep up with you in the efforts you're putting out. Yeah, I mean, you were on Maria show yesterday, right? Recently, right? Yeah, Devin and I, she thought it would be fun to have Devin and I, the Russia gate guys on for the day before the Russia gate trial. Yeah. So I want to get into that. You have a new book out called the plot against the king. It's a book, right? It's a children's book. Oh, this will drive crazy. So basically what we thought was, yeah, it's called the plot against the king. And look, we said it in medieval times, and we thought they're shoving critical race theory down our children's throats and don't use. Why don't we educate our children about the truth? Yes. And the biggest story of our generation, Charlie, is the Russia gate hoax. And no one's teaching our kids about it. So we had this idea to say, let's set it in medieval times. We'll have a king named Donald. We'll have Hillary Clinton. The maga king. The maga king. He played right into it. I mean, we could set it up any better. We've got Hillary Clinton and the shifty night. And of course, the night of the round table, Devin. And it's our question. It's our quest for truth and the simple issue is, why shouldn't we educate our children on what actually happened in Russia gate? It's for anyone foreign up and honestly, adults should get up. But we don't know all of it yet. We don't know all of it, but that's why we can write a part too. Oh, there'll be a sequel. So it's called, it's called plot against the king. And you can go to plot against the number one child's book right now in on Amazon. And we haven't even technically. That's a tough category. I'll tell you what. There might be some not so subtle cues and clues in here. There's a few, I think your audience is going to have fun with those. Oh yeah. They got it. They got to dig through it. Okay. So it's on
Jim Hanson and Sebastian Chat About '2000 Mules'
"So I mentioned it got to talk about it. That is the now the most successful documentary of the modern age in just over a week, it's netted 10 million gross. It has had a million downloads. It is 2000 meals. I'm in it guys full disclosure. I've got a stake in it, but it is so important. Got to ask you, this told us we were conspiracy theorists. That's nothing happened. We've got in just the areas where Greg Phillips Catherine, engelbrecht and the 2000 mules team looked. We have at least 400,000 illegal ballots that were being trafficked by NGOs by individuals who went to 27 drop boxes in 36 hours at 2 a.m. 3 a.m. what is your reaction to this? Is this a game changer? Will it affect those who are un political or in the middle potentially? What it needs to change is any state that still has a law that allows mail out ballots to everybody, ballot harvesting or any of these ways that our ballots don't go from one person's hand to the election officials directly should be outlawed. Now, I can understand mail in balloting at some level if you've got controls like states that do it well, is okay. But the states that just mail them out and these NGOs scarf them up, I got to tell you, in 2019, November, my wife and I took information to the Republican National Committee about ballot harvesting in California. Concrete concrete showed that they were doing it. They were registering people at Starbucks with addresses at dog parks, at places like this. We gave them the dataset that showed this. And they were like, that's great. We're going to go buy some 32nd attack ads.
J.D. Vance Shares His Feelings Post-Ohio GOP Senate Primary Victory
"Is JD Vance, the U.S. Senate nominee candidate for the great state of Ohio running against Tim Ryan. JD, welcome back to the program. Thanks, Charlie. Thanks for having me. And congratulations, I actually have a chance to tell you that yet. So first just your reaction from your race, you won the shocking victory. I think almost two weeks ago, how are you processing things? How's your race standing now that you're in the general? That's good. I mean, look, the Biden administration has been a disaster in Tim Ryan, my democratic opponent has voted with the Biden administration a 100% of the time. So we feel good about the general. Still got to put in the work. I think the Republican primary the way that I think about it is that it was a referendum on what kind of party do we want to be? Do we want to be a nationalist America first policy? Or do we want a party? Or do we want to go back to the ways of starting stupid wards that we have no reason to be in and shipping our manufacturing base off to China and other countries in the world. So I'm glad that the voters of Ohio rejected the old establishment ways. And I'm excited to take the America first message into the general election. And like I said, I feel pretty good
What Country Does Mitch McConnell Actually Represent?
"Has come out and he has said, look, the most important thing happening in the world right now is the war in Ukraine. What country does Mitch McConnell represent exactly? The country that has the wide open border and a 100,000 plus drug overdoses that has double digit inflation, you see, for Washington, D.C., WarGames are always more important than the livelihood of their citizens. Always. They will always care more about some far distant land than their own constituents. Does Mitch Mitch McConnell as senator from western Ukraine? Or is he a senator from Kentucky that has incredible problems right now? Kentucky's dealing with drug problems, inflation, unemployment, you see Rand Paul, who also represents Kentucky, actually cares about his voters. Rand Paul stood up and said, I represent my voters and I swore an oath to the United States Constitution. And I'm not going to just all of a sudden authorize $40 billion to go to some far off distant land when we do not know what success looks like. Will this bring us closer to peace or closer to war? You see, there should be solutions put forward other than just giving Raytheon Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin, complete and total blank checks to be able to have their chance at pillaging the United States treasury. Here's
The Preposterous Bipartisan Plan of Sending $40 Billion to Ukraine
"But I want to start with the story that is now kind of developed over the last weekend, which is why our leaders are trying to send another $40 billion to Ukraine. Now, this is something that we deserve answers to for very obvious reasons, not just because we don't know what success looks like in Ukraine. No one has actually told us that. They say, well, you know, it's to help zelensky and his government fight against Russia, okay? Well, where exactly are those $40 billion going to be deployed? And why is that the urgent need or why is that the urgent project of the federal government? Now, this passed through the House of Representatives with near unanimous consent, the Republicans had some opposition, but very little. It is a bipartisan agreement that we should continue to meddle further and deep into the affairs of other countries. So $40 billion, even though Joe Biden only asked for 33 billion dollars, which will further antagonize Russia and get us closer to a war. In fact, steny Hoyer said, we're in a war last week, said it very clearly and plainly that we are in a war. He said, in a time of war, why are we attacking Joe Biden? And so while our western inheritance is alarmingly vanishing in front of us, we have to be lectured by our leaders why we have to go spend and send $40 billion to a far off and distant
Left Wing Media Blames Tucker Carlson for Buffalo Shootings
"So let's see. So The Washington Post in The New York Times are blaming Tucker Carlson and Fox News for the shooting. Is that right? They really doing it? Conservative media is familiar with buffalo suspects alleged theory. By Paul farhi, in the New York and Washington Post, there you go. Use The Washington Post media reporter. Let me see. Look, whatever they can do to smear the right is what they do. That's as simple as that.

The Whitmer Kidnapping Defendant Who Was Trapped by the FBI
"The indefatigable Julie Kelly has tracked down one of the Whitmer kidnapping defendants. This is the guy who got off. He was exonerated because the jury realized that he had been entrapped by the FBI and Julie has an exclusive interview with this guy. His name is Brandon casar down. But and he's gone through a horrible two year ordeal. Involving losing his job involving incarceration. Of course, the familiar FBI raid, the kind of massive demonstration of power almost a shock and awe type of campaign. So Julie gives a little bit of background. She says that this fellow Brandon cassata was charged along with other defendants, 5 defendants, Adam Fox, Thai garden, Caleb Franks Barry Croft, and a guy named Daniel Harris. These are the people who were charged. Now, what the interview reveals is the sort of naivete of these guys and how they were targets of the FBI from the beginning. And by the beginning, I mean, before the plot was even hatched. That's what's so telling about it. So here's talking now to Julie. And he says, you know, I was kind of locked down under a COVID court. I was stuck in my apartment with most of my family out of state. I was just trying to find people to network with. So this is the COVID frustration and the anger, by the way, at the left and imposing these lockdowns, interestingly, that was a factor here in what got these guys to demonize Whitmer and think, oh yeah, it'd be kind of cool if we so these are big talkers, these are guys who buy and large have difficult lives with not a whole lot going on and they're looking for other like minded people who give them a sense of camaraderie. So what happens is this fellow brand in Casa goes online and in June, a leader of a group called the Wolverine Watchmen, a self styled kind of militia group, basically tells casar that they are inviting him to firearms training in Michigan. Firearm streams. This guy's like, yeah, in lockdown, I wanna get out of the house. Little does he know that this being organized by not a guy named quote big Dan. And guess who big Dan is? An FBI informant. He is in a sense cooking up the plot.
Caller: If Illegals Are in Our Facilities, We Have to Keep Them Fed
"I'm a conservative, but I do have to disagree. I mean, since they've already drugged millions of immigrants up here, which I hate and don't want ever to happen, we've got them trapped and we've kind of have to keep them fed. Who's got them tracks? I would say. Who's got what does that mean? We've got such a small percentage. Wait a minute, wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait a minute. Wait a minute. What does that mean? We've got them trapped. Who's got them? Pretty much got them up here with their kids and everything. We can't send them back now, unfortunately, I wish we could. But if we are more bound to stay focused, how did we trap women crossing the border illegally who are pregnant or who have children? What do you mean we've got them trapped here? Look, I think we should have left them across the border like Trump had. I'm all for that. But now that they're in our facilities, we have the moral, we have to feed them. We have to what's the first of all, you're not a conservative. You're a troll. You don't believe what you're saying. Let me add, let me ask you, what you are. I love that. What's the morality of American moms who can't get baby formula in Louisville, Kentucky, your city? Where's the morale? Where's the morality of that, Ken?
Rick Klein's Analysis of the House Midterm Elections
"So that's the breakdown of the Senate. They went on then to break down the house and the likelihood that Republicans are going to take control of the House. You focus a lot on the Senate control of the house almost certain to go to the GOP. They only need to pick up four seats. Yeah, and that map right there, you're looking at the narrowest House majority by Democrats in the modern history of the House of Representatives. We know how first midterms go for presidents. None of that has really changed. But what has changed is redistricting. And this is fascinating. Our friends over at 5 38, they looked at every state that's finished redistricting so far. They're not all done. So far they found a net total of 7 fewer competitive seats than just two years ago. Down to just about 33. That means in the whole House of Representatives, you're just looking at this kind of narrow window of truly competitive races. Places where the Democrats and the Republicans are relatively evenly split. So, you know, they know what's coming.

Ultimate utilicorp and. Of course. I i look all around at everything but you know it's not my call but it's very nice. Nice is such a weak word. But it's great to be part of a team Being personal when it great team. Because you're talking about things anyway. And i think you know. There's a lot of mutual respect with the makeup departments. Because you know we're all in the same boat. Yeah and it's great to have each other's backs and even just for a child about what would you do about this I what you did yesterday. And i think that's part of it's part of making do gain a project together. It's not you might be a personal to one actor but it doesn't mean that you're in any way exclusive just means that your role you're still are of the exactly. Yes that's what i was.

I could have been in. Destiny's child or i'm a beyond saved. Backup dancer i here. I know how to do that right. And so after. I'd done a destiny's child so much and the glamour. I love that video of her. I think it's one of the most glamorous just with the wind in her hair blowing whatever it was. You know that's all hype williams. Brilliant things to it was just a fabulous thing and really if you guys have not seen the making of you have to google the making of or behind the scenes video power. It's the funniest thing watching them. Gaga learned the choreography that day. And she's a nerd really and it was just hysterical watching beyond say and gaga navigates. And the really fun part is watching them watch it. When they were watching the takes that they had done laughing their asses off completely giggling and laughing at each other. It's really cute. okay. I'm gonna. That's that's what i'm into the second thing. Yeah that's not see so. Many people always ask makeup artist. What happened like why did you stop. Oh of course. Yes i that question a lot i. You're not you're working for yourself. You're self employed. It's a freelance job So you're not fired ever. It's you know people take breaks. Like with a leash. I you know there were a lot of clients that nobody ever did anything. When i was working with people like missy or mariah my period with them was exclusive. Almost although i did other things they they never really used other. People gaga. We've the fame. I did the look of the tour. I went on tour with her for a lot of that time. But then after that project she moved on creative line and also after the born the born the square video to be honest. I really looked at my period of time with her. And i felt like there was nothing new that i could do for her. We had done absolutely every outrageous thing without a fail with really without it being a mess. And i was just like i would be stupid to push that you know i. I really felt like you know. I'm not getting any younger. I would rather book and that epic period of time with the fame monster cover that was shot with heavy swimming and essentially ending with born this way video and every single thing in between i mean what.

"Please, she's gonna see laf, so gigantic. Metal M, hydraulic on Hydraulics and three dimensional em, and the only special effects in that video are the sky. So everything else in that video happened, it was at the time the most expensive music video ever. It was a remember that what year was it? I have no idea. It was two thousand one. I I'll look it up. I oh, my God. So right. It's so again, you know, it's time to get in the boat and they've got camera people in scuba gear, you know. It's, it's like a full feature film. I mean, it was like working on a Spielberg something. And they take Missy out there and I thought I'll never forget. I said somebody in production. All right, well, I need to get in the boat and be out there and like it's a super wide shot. You've, you know, either have to be underwater or out of the shy, and I was like what? And so, literally, I didn't even to let them know, my concerns. I was just like, oh God, oh my God, oh my God, oh my God. And so the music started the M slowly painfully, slow submerges there in a kneeling wage. Person. And the water literally goes rushing over the edge of the Hem rushes over the dancers and missing. And then once it's settled, the shots started, they were holding your breath. And the M pushes out of the water and Missy Rises up and starts dancing. And I'm like this in a monitor, like, oh and I'm thinking there's not going to be anything on her face. Not one, single Crystal felt log, and there were hundreds. What do you use a glue? What was the glue? I don't know off, but speaking of blue, there is a famous red carpet that I did of Gaga covered in white pearls, it has white pearls on her face off and that was not planned. We were in a hotel suite Upper Manhattan and I had one assistant as usual. And I never saw what she's going to wear beforehand and I get there, she shows me. I don't remember the designer but she shows me this Pearl encrusted leather coat rack. I'm like we shouldn't do pearls on your face and I should have never said it because right. There's no, you don't say no to her and she was like yes. And so I had my assistant Josh go out and get pearls. I never imagined how many it would take or that, I would need different sizes or whatever..

"Never never, never me. I believe that I've never met somebody more humble. I mean, it's like a big secret. Like his talent is a secret. He's still super quiet. Yeah, you know. And that's so reserved and whatever and really does such gorgeous make. Yeah I mean that's the that's the key. Read lady. Beautiful makeup off but speak and for him to be such a genius and he is he does really simple makeup. Yes. Gorgeous. But his technique and the Finish is incomparable. I mean, it's the Finish is amazing. Yeah. No, I agree. I agree. Speaking of finish, can you tell me about how you how you were surprised with a water tank for Missy? On. Oh right. So for the she's a bit video. All right so I have to back up because there's a reoccurring theme my career which are the lakes that Universal. So waterfalls the girls were in the middle of the lake say Universal and they were on tiny little pedestal, okay? This is a funny story on little I don't know how deep that water is, but deep enough that they film Jaws. Okay, wait, they were standing out literally on pedestals, very small pedestals. That only one person could fit on. And so when I got them ready, it was a hot day in Los Angeles, like every day in LA and they were off in boats out to their position and to make a long story short, the the doing this that they have in that video at the time was a mistake. And I remember looking at it and being horrified really like I saw the footage. I was like all I saw was like they need the power. Okay, well that was really I'm not taking credit for Doing this and make up, but long before there were seen powders or whatever. There was the mistake of water dog. Looks, you know, you know? Ironically, very current sought-after. Yeah. But it was sweat. Then fast, forward, two years later. We were doing the, she's a bitch video and You know, I'm not a Prosthetics Magnum, artists, I'm not a special effects makeup artist. I mean, I can do a convincing bruise if I have to, but that's about it. So, I, you know, I the one with the idea of all of the crystals Starsky crystals on her face and she also had and I don't even know these when I'm about to say is, you know, the the limited edition Halloween version of a foil lash. So they were literally like, then a silver weird. Not pretty lashes, like Ricky's wanted all stove, I wanted silver tips, and so, I remember that I layered, I still layer lots of lashes, but I did a band lash, and then I did the foil off. And then I did another band lash. So it would be black on top and black underneath would just the silver tips with the crystals and all of that. And I'm getting all carried away in my life creativeness without considering that the shot, she was going to be submerged under water. So we had made her jet black with black greasepaint, and then it was the trick of trying to figure out what kind of glue. These crystals wood glue to the grease paint off, of course, right? So with all of that challenge, I don't think I really ever knew, I think. I thought that it would be a special effect in somehow they were going to fake the underwater Park. But in that video and everybody, I encourage you to Google is play now..

With him in my head, he was on a pedestal that You know, was Untouchable and his acknowledged of me. It definitely. You know, I I don't want to sound like, I have no self esteem, it definitely, to this day, to this day, is the single most regardless of any face I've touched or anything. I've done the most validating thing that ever happened. Now I now I know. I mean, Kevin, I'll do that to you. He is like turns on the Waterworks, you know, it's I'm sure on some level you recognized. That he also felt the same way as you, you know, and you know, right. I mean what's so funny about this story is so I found out the flowers that he loved, which were white Casablanca lilies, I remember calling art and commerce. And, you know, they could find out easy but just had not worked with Steven all the time. Okay. And so I called them and I said, I, you know, oh my God, oh my God, they were like, oh wow, they were as blown away. As I was I just had no idea Thursday. He even knew who I was, so I sent him two dozen white Casablanca lilies and a letter. And Kevin. I thank you letter and Kevin sent me a thank-you letter back for my thank-you letter. And with every weird thing you would think that I would have felt like, oh, this is my buddy, you know, this is my peer know, Kevin would never be my peer because I thought I would never be worthy and I still feel that way. And so now I'm successful enough that we're sharing red carpets, you know, he's on a red carpet with Cher, I'm going to red carpet with Jim Carrey and I literally Would find a crack in crawl in it. Like, I was terrified to meet other meet your Idols imitated by him, I just I knew deep down that he could never, I don't want to start crying live up to What he meant to me, I just felt like even on his best day I'm going to be disappointed like that he would you know brush me off.

She had. Yes, ma'am. And so my relationship with her intimidated, Tommy for sure. And there was a weird. You know, definitely attempts to squeeze me out over and over and over again. It's funny, you know, the the reason I was there was so much more than make up, right? You know, and then then the curly hair kind of started going away. I introduced her to one of my best friends that I adored this hairdresser named said Curry Club. So he you know, entered the game and so then we were like the Three Musketeers and you know it was so much fun and you know, I don't know if you read the book or you listen, I haven't yet. It's on, its back on my phone. You have, there's this story about, we had been traveling all over the world. I'll make a quick and we were making a scrapbook for her off of all of, you know, mementos and everything that we could save. And I didn't learn this until the book. She kept this from me, I think because, well, she says, in the office that it would have hurt me more than it hurt her, but Tommy found the Scrapbook. We had it hidden and he burned it. Hi and you, you read this. Yeah, this is how you found out. I read it. I read. Yeah. Oh, isn't that awful? Yeah but anyway that was my first falling in love with a client, you know. And it was reciprocated, we were really really close and we had so many jokes and so many inside jokes we had code words, you know, for other stars that whatever God, you know, I don't know, her know like all kind of stuff, you know. It was fun. So anyway then the way that it works and I'll fast-forward this. So the way that works is once you really get in with with somebody that you're you're writing the wings of their success in the music industry, every record label then wants their Mariah Carey, okay? So so the record that's how the music business thing started for me was my job. Outrageous success riding on her wings.

So when everyone else was going to Paris Nemo on, I went to Brazil and came back with a book, full of tear sheets of gorgeous. Brazilian models that then Elite sought out. And so, I ended up in Brazil for about two years shortly. After that, shortly after me, moving their Elite was like if you'll get an apartment number, It's big enough for models will send American model to Brazil. Really, I'm not kidding.
