Who are you me from the Drew Carey Show? What are you doing? Not Okay. Well look I do think that it's important that we. Address Stop screwing around and address the biggest news story in the world right now. What everyone's talking about? Which is my blue eyeliner? It's all anyone's talking about. We love and betrayal. It's it's really. The Internet is a buzz. Comments are just a flame. Look. I I have not been out of my house in three. California's shutdown. And my style evolution has become very iconic very quickly. The problem with when you're at home and don't go anywhere. You don't have anyone to check you. You don't have anyone to mock you don't have anyone to give you a weird look, so. I've just fully started dressing, and Wolf, sweat, shirts. Blue eyeliner. It's just it's it's. It's alarming like. Three months. Maybe I should buy this vintage horse shirt. Now it's just like walk. I can't wear my coral necklace without my tigers. I- earrings just turned into like the party planner a retirement home. I'm just you have gay pink eye now ever change. This blue eyeliner is my brand now. This is my blue eyeliner. Is Like Gallagher's watermelon point this? Is I a conic, so I do feel my fash I. Maybe I'm going through something. What's going on in the news and the world? Like I'm having some kind of emotional reaction to I feel like I need to really go for it with my fashion sounds but I I'm a little bit alarmed in the decisions. I make I mean the other day I was like I can't wear my feather earrings my Tutus at the dry cleaner. This doesn't match Oh like I. was like I can't wear my momma without my Tiara, that look ridiculous I do think though that the blue eyeliner. Is maybe in reaction to wear masks. We'll have to wear masks, and I feel like back, it's. I'm not able to communicate or something like I'm not like I need to tell a story I guess with my eyes, because it's the only thing that's showing. You want people to know you're like. If I didn't have this math on, I'd have something to say. I need you know I? Want you to know that I think a lot of space. With or without this mass like I, think that now that some of my. Personality is Hidden I. Now need to let people know that I'm unpredictable in other non verbal ways I'm wild. You know I I, do believe strong I think this was in the forty eight laws of power. was that how many laws power? There were? I think it was one of them. Was You always need to come off a little crazy and a little unpredictable, so people don't fuck with you nailed it and I haven't yet got a teardrop tattoo I feel like that's what my blue eyeliner is conveying. That is you people? People come into the House to fix the furniture or something, and you're wearing full dog pajamas and blue eyeliner at the door. You have a David Bowie lightning bolt down your face. You're like come in I'm like steal from me. I dare you want to go for it. I think when you're a woman that lives alone, and you have people coming into your house to do work. You have to make sure they know that your Bat Shit. Crazy I have to be a ferry. People come coming. Do Work at my house like. In the middle of nowhere like any of these workers could murder me at any time, but they're like I'm they're gonNA? Think twice after they look at my eyelids. She cares switchblade. So. This is actually believe it or not getting a story. So blue eyeliner is my thing now and you know what I what I decide. I'm doing something I'm I'm all in. I am nothing if not loyal. You aren't here for what you want like when I decide. I'm going to do something. I do it like in college I started with lip stained from the body shop, still wearing it eighteen years later. She never really worked for me. Don't give a shit. Okay I'm loyal. Right like when I remember. I got into beated belts for a minute. Then now it looks like we. We live in the seventies. There's range bells hanging everywhere, but like if. I want something. I want all of them. Like I can't just have one of them. I am I've been a hoarder. I mean I have that hoarding nature to me, didn't I do it remember when I was in red? Pants Oh my God. Do you remember yeah, forgot about okay, yes, red pins! He ripped a pair of red pants once and we had to buy like seven four place reversed one pair of red pants. Scarcity Complex? It's a deep scarcity complex that I think I get because I remember when I was a kid, and when my dad would put out a plate of chicken nuggets I, would grab all them and Wickham all and put them back so that no one else could have any. This is being Brad. Scarcity Company, but I did it I do it with like things that I did it with horror statues named the clocks vases. Remember, we kept ordering different times, so rose soap lavender, so African. Black African soap. It was all these I'm like what? Fruit loops. I got to the point where I had ordered up on the Internet and we got to vote. That had fruit loops like cooked into. Great soap by the way so I was like I need all the blue eyeliner this minute thing. This is my hook. Going Amazon I by. Nour's eyeliner right? I'm like I'm GonNa buy some Nice eyeliner doing my damn thing order. It and I'm like it was weird. It was like five dollars. And I was like. Oh, it's like a pandemic sale like Jeff. BEZOS has finally given us a break like he wants me to like be me. He supports my full transition into Dolly Parton thank you. Sir I get it I open, and I like you know the smell of makeup like you know when something's off right and so I opened like that doesn't smell right. It smelled like you know when you open. A box of crayons is a crowns or crown I still don't know thirty nine dollars, crayons crowns I crowns. A waxy of flu. vm Like Tar Plato I was like okay. That doesn't smell right, and then I put it on, and it was like scratching my eyelid, and like my eyes were getting all Bernie and I forgotten. You told me not to order makeup off of Amazon. Please explain to our listeners. Hawaii I I. Love It. You still put it on. Even after the smell bad committed I was like I. Honestly I was too far down the road at this point licked but I remember you told me about counterfeit. Make us so on Axel I just didn't want you to be right so badly. Go Blind for this. Yes, so basically when you order things. Amazon, unless they are licensed through Amazon like the Lady Gaga makeup that is from Amazon Amazon. Brand name. Amazon. You're probably getting your honor. Counterfeit Mak- because it's being sold through seller, which means they could have just hadn't decided to sell. It got it was expired. They got go like a forty dollar Gucci purse like it's GonNa. Be like a fake. Yeah, it's fake. They have it with me to accept. You're putting your like wet or facility. I mean your. I is orifices. See, so I am putting it on and I'm like this is burning. My I like this is. Like I'm putting it on I'm like why am I? Getting sleepy like this can't be good like emitting weird ass fumes and shit. I mean a good a good rule of thumb. If it's spelled wrong, it's probably not. So you can just looked at me like Oh, this is NPR Z. Disease. The NYQUIL and was like what it's like I don't know. There was a documentary on that flakes called broken, but it was a series and one of them was on counterfeit makeup, and this girl had ordered all these make pallets, and her eyes were like glued shut. She couldn't open like I. don't even know what the fuck they put in there. It's like grout. Yeah you, and then they just match the packaging. You're like Oh. This is the same thing but cheaper yeah yeah. Yeah the same thing. Yeah, so I'm probably going to get some kind of optical infection at some point, but it's worth it. and also the evolution of the vibe is also involving these blue light glass, says these are the glasses I talked on the show ages ago and as usual i. gave advice that I don't take myself take. And they stopped the blue light from your computer and I gotta say. Am I not spunky or than I've ever been? Got More Energy since I've been wearing them. Is this placebo factor I thought it was the eyeliner low. It's pure adderall. I used those cookie monster balls. Giving you the Energy No but I do I. Feel like by the time my screen time is literally like eight is embarrassing. I I. There's nothing will not admit about myself, but my screen time is embarrassing at this point and so wearing these has really helped, although the look is a little bit. Terrifying I. Do kind of look like a serial killer from the seventies I look like The club. I know you're more eighties zero. Yeah Yeah. I feel like I am doing the full. Shirley's monster vibes this point. When I emotional or wanted to I wanna like fake. My death I want to change everything about myself and I can't do that right now. Because everything is closed I, really wanted to get a bunch of tattoos. Tattoo borrowers are closed. So, the hair is happening the blue islanders happening and then I bought all the horse shirts on at eastern I moved onto the wolf. Ones thank God. The Tattoo shops were closed them. We just go back to that like we're really lucky that they're not open for your needs. I really want to get a giant shark. My forearm, yeah! But the way that you'd like to hoard thing. It's a good thing that we're not all the shark. US come back like an aquarium. So, this is a very roundabout circuitous way to get to the fact that so. This has been my vibe. I found out who I am. This is a this is my mugshot. Get used to the vintage. Wolves get used to the blue light. Glasses get used to the I. Don't think this is Karen Haircut. I feel like it's not full Karen. It's like Cara. It's like it's like extra. HOWDY UGLY! Bit bip. That's. Over the coyote ugly. Where's the coyote. Okay, so I was flirting with my instagram. Followers as I am wants to do. And I took a picture of myself, and my new look and I said. So, what do you guys think I look like like who do I look like ripe. This is actually building to something. Believe it or not. And you guys had hilarious fucking. Comebacks! Is that what you can call it? Someone said I looked like Miss Briggs from I carly. I. Don't know that I think there's a Hilarious I. Don't know who? One wrote in parentheses. The person wrote. You're GONNA have to Google this. You don't know who it is. You guys know me so well. I appreciate that. valmont from Scooby Doo. Hot Take I. The orange. Yes, that's the smart one with the glasses. We love that the Janet from Three's company. From you! Don't let you don't know three's company, your? Company and come in to wait till you JEM and the holograms. That's ever wanted to know what that is. Oh, yeah, you looked at me and said Josie and the PUSSYCAT. PUSSYCAT dolls. Josie. One of the neighborhood wives from Edward scissorhands grave plus a plus a plus. Edward, Bo how dare you, and then someone's wrote art. How Art! How that's! That's that's really it. Though aren't because you're just like you're just a little bit more faith away from being a Gigolo. So I'm reading these I'm laughing I'm appreciating at an intense. You know couple weeks on the podcast in terms of. Our gas some what's going on in the world? And then some you guys writing all these hilarious things, and then someone writes. You look like a comedian who apparently doesn't make jokes anymore. T! Spilled it. Got Her good so I. I in her feelings. And the reason I'm bringing it up stupid. It's so stupid and I told Benton about this. Bengals owner know someone writes on every comedians page like I didn't realize that was something that people write on comics pages all the time because I did that auto block thing fucking ages ago. You know the auto block, mean comments that have certain key words Myanmar's like whore and busted old. You know whatever so this is. What got through and it got to got to me because I. I I don't comments. Don't hurt my feelings anymore. I am now at the point where I realized that. If you make a mean comment on my page, you love me. With me, your love me, you're in love with me and it hurts your heart that you can't be with me and this is the only thing you can do to manage your pain I'm I'm fine with me and comments, and also as what I would do. People totally that's what I do and I like someone mean to them so i. know what you're doing. I love you, too. and. Your Dad dropped the ball anyway. I I really did bug me, don't it? Did make me WANNA. Say something because we have Amber Riley on the podcast today, and it's an amazing interview, but on a legend on legend, and we're GONNA play she, saying freedom by beyond say at one of the protests and it was just. Unreal and I did WANNA. Bring it up. Though because I do feel like the last couple episodes have obviously been serious reflecting. What's going on in the world and I just want to let people know like I can't be silly in these interviews because I do. Get insecure that I'm not being funny enough, but I know what it's like to be in an interview where the host is being really funny, and then you feel like you can't be authentic or vulnerable like I've. I mean my whole career I've had to go into like radio interviews and morning show interviews and podcast interviews where you walk into comings. Come in your face. Klein Coma us, and then I have to like you. Come chance you like then I have to adapt to the tone. They're setting. Yeah, you think that that's the tone of the show now, so you just become a different person doing our love. Monster Truck. Shrug a coma, but I wanted to do here today like that's not why I drove here so like this is a delicate time and I think that in order to get the kind of interviews. We're getting I can't just be goofy. The whole time you know people have their space talk. You WanNa talk about giving them a platform brawl. These people to listen to and the reason I need to air. This resentment is because I. know the type of Bitch I am and I. Would I'll do is I'll hold and the resentment, and not say anything about it, and then one day I'll just I'll just quit the podcast. Now I'm not doing this anymore. Like I have to let it out because I do I. Know Things I think the. Is evolving you know and I think it's time. I love having my friends on, and we will always do that. Don't panic, we had. We've come down yeah like. Everyone that's going to have. Your money comet. They all have four podcasts if you WANNA. Hear Bobby Lee and Kristalina. You can hear them anytime. You want you know you don't have to come here for them, but I do. I? We had Jim Jefferies his second round. Don't worry. We talked about threesomes for about an hour. That's GONNA come out very soon it. That would have been a weird to drop that two weeks ago. Women just bazaar. And the next week I'm actually really excited. We're going to have Dr David Agathon professor of Medicine and Engineering at the university southern California. And, he. I'm so afraid I'm not gonna able to pronounce this co-founder. Naveh JENEX. Personalized Medicine Company and plied Protonix, which is probiotics as large scale study of. Shit and we love that you know that I love true science. Then ten I think we're evolving into actually talking legitimate scientists instead of Benton being like. Yeah, I, read that somewhere once. So far haven't been wrong. I did read all those things and so I think it's important to read the room you know. In terms of like I noticed that with everything. That's going on, and you'll see someone's like instagram. You're like Oh. This bitch is not reading the. Yeah, not, she's not aware. Yeah. Yeah, and so I just wanted to knowledge that because I just want you guys to know that I know and. I think the the when we this as we wanted it to be. Educational Funny, the also you're gonNA learn something about yourself. You're going to learn new vocabulary. You'RE GONNA. Be inspired like that's always what we WANNA do this podcast, but the problem is all. My friends are players comedian, so we did. You know. It is it is kind of hard to go back and forth expect more and expect different. Yeah, and so I just I love that I'm spending twenty minutes acknowledging one troll that was probably drunk when he wrote one comment, and it's controlled the last five days my, but here's your moment, sir. And then yeah, so I also like. This is what we wanted to make a podcast that was like. If you only listen to one podcast a week like this'll be, you'll walk away with a with a joke. You can share with your friends and information I was GONNA say like if you only have one hour week to listen to a podcast to you only have six hours. Listen two one five five hours.

I WanNa just read something really quick from so you WanNa, talk about race. Do Not Force people of Color into discussions of race. I'm doing that right now. But I would like to say. I'm just trying to amplify ambers voice. Thank you I appreciate. It is a hero in this moment. She's doing incredible things. Into dropping an EP soon which we are going to talk about at the end or whatever you want She's started this incredible Hashtag. That said we have a lot of fucking listeners, so I get to do this. people of Color live with racism each and every day with no say over when and how it impacts their lives, it's painful and exhausting. When people of Color have the rare luxury to choose to not engage in additional dialogue about race. Do not deny them that even if this discussion is really important to you, you never have a right to demand it. So. I was very trepidation of asking you because I'm sure you're tired. I'm sure you have a lot your plate And so I just WANNA. Thank you for being here. I'm also very big Fan, and in case you didn't notice I. put on so much makeup I. Don't know if I'm trying to fuck you. I don't know what I'm doing here but I. Lip I appreciate it I looked, and I said all this guy blue eye liner on with the Blue Shirt and the phone like you let. You let go. From Santa Fe? Verse So. Like an Ohio. Indigo a blanket dire I don't know what I'm does. She's in a midlife crisis. Is what she's end so I'm sorry. I really went for it rings. I put I'm pushing it. Dazzle you? Press you. So I just want to say. Thank you I've been talking to a lot of friends. Who are like stop asking us how we are. That's make you're making it about you. That's not your service for the day. That's not your action for the day. By the way. What do you? What am I right back? Great Never. Know how I'm doing it. You know I think it's time out for people to act like they are just now. Realizing that racism is here and I think the exhaustion comes from racism being. Created by white people and black people now having to find the solution for that's right, it's it's it's kind of insensitive for you to want me to sit down and EXP-. Blacks plane you. What daily life for me as you'll, you'll never understand it. What we need you to do is check your races family members I. Don't want to know about your racist ankle or you're racist, grandmother or you races on it and how you don't agree with what they you know what it is that they say you don't get points for that. Also you don't you don't get points for not a dream. You don't get points for marching. You don't get points for tweeting something out. You don't get pointsman ramming we're. It's all of our responsibility. I and I just want people to understand that like you know I had to even check myself I'm like I'm out here fighting. For equality for black people, but I really haven't been. Fighting for equality for Trans People. I haven't been really. Putting my out there as an ally for the LGBTQ community and win a lot of my friends did white friends did reach out to me. A lot of them are in the Lgbtq community in in I in turn. Apologize to them. 'cause I said you know I. I want to be an ally and I want everybody to live. A life where they feel safe and intersection does exist are black transpeople. There are black gay people. There are black bisexual people you know, and all of that black lives matter all black lives matter. and all lives we already know all lives matter you know, but there there are many with that show. Yeah, right series. Veep, I'm there's there's just different different degrees of struggle, and it's not about putting one struggle against another. It's the fact that we all struggle and we all have the ability to to in that struggle. and. I think. You know my phoebe Robinson who's been on the show I was texting with her today. She gave me permission to share this. She said it's such a mess I. Wish White People Would Stop censoring themselves in this moment. And it's just it's white guilt. That's that's that's what it is. Then where do you fall on white guilt because me and my ears was just talking about this like you should have a little. You know. At least you're feeling something you know I don't think any motion is useless. Yeah, yeah, just use it to drive yourself to learn something to educate yourself to redefining book to there are resources available you. Gave them at the end the last podcast a given at the end of this one. You do not need to ask your black friends to educate you on racism. They are not your teacher, and you don't get to get free labor from them. We did that for a while. This country did that for a what. Built this country made a much people very wealthy white labor. Yeah, we don't need to now. Ask Them for their free, emotional and intellectual. Whereas, my nieces history book says Field Workers? Don't get credit. You don't get points moral points for asking your black friends a bunch of questions and forcing them to educate you. Yeah, that's not. I mean I I don't want. Anyone to ever feel like you can't. Talk to your black friends about stuff, but come with information like Oh i. read Actually was having a conversation with court Cordova Street who was on the show with me, and he said that he read the book Why won't. WHY WON'T BE EXPLAINING RACISM TO MY white friends anymore? And he said it opened up. His is a lot and we were able to have a different conversation. Yes, because we we, we're now understanding systematic racism. Institutionalize like we. We now understand from a certain point like he was like I. I kind of took the blinders off. As opposed to someone that's like so what's going on? Like I, don't get a yeah, like how? How are you getting through every day? Like what is that? Was this black lives matter thing. It's just go. Rich Google Gauguin Review in information. Ask you ask G.. Ask. Ask. What twitter who is who is more resourceful than Google? I'll tell you that. The Angelo, who wrote right fragility, said we make it miserable for people of Color to talk about racist patterns in their experience, because our feelings takeover and make us defensive. I've done that when I was younger, you talk about like well. I'm not I don't. Do that we're not. We're not talking about a racist person. We're talking about a racist system right? Yeah, and I think we we were kind of talking about it before I. Think a lot of people think of a racist as like it has to be a white hood and burning across mat-su racist. We're talking about racists systems yet when you say racism people automatically. think action they think N. Word Yeah. They think action, but what I want. Everyone to understand is when we say racists. We're we are talking about the system and what we're saying is you benefit from that system and that system was built to oppress black people and people of color, which are two different things. I'm going to be stupid. Nancy Pelosi. How come Oh can we talk about that? We don't have to, but I'd love to think about it. The Black Caucus set up. They said them I was like. Yell. The Blackhawk is still you. Can I play video from a woman Not Go away. There was a video that I wanted to play about it. What this is the Democratic Party wearing the? Kim Take cloth of the of the Ashanti tribe on too lazy to make this kind of quick video response, but today's something happened and I thought it's actually important enough. That I get in front of my camera and make a short video to explain something short awful for me to post on twitter. I was just looking online today like most of you. And what did I see? A bunch of Democrat politicians nailing down a winter have nothing to say about that because I am not an American. However, they were all. Having around their necks, this colorful break, which I'm sure they put around the next as some kind of. Mark or show of unity or sollidarity people so in other words they are putting for one canteen material on this fabric that had around their necks as some kind of. Sign Symbol to show that they are not racist and the ad together with black people. Excuse me Democrats in your tokenism. You didn't wait to find out that this thing that you'll hanging around. Your neck is not just some African uniform. It's actually the. Material Tampa loans to the Ghanaian people mainly the certainly drive. Excuse me. Democrats don't treat Africans like where children DIS fabrics and these. Things that we have. We did our culture and tradition. The all means something to us I know you look at us, and you say well Africans are so cute in on your colorful dresses. Some of dresses than patterns and colors and fabrics actually do mean. was some of them belong to ancient tribes and means something to them. So are you using your own show of the not racism or your on shore of venture why you're using the contain material to signal your venue stop. We are not children. Not Children and leave our tradition and culture to us. If you don't know what about it, ask somebody. They'll be something else. You could have done to show you something. Dr, into in black people is taking the material and making so of it. Well well. And I also looked up the meaning of each color. They were predominantly yellow A. Someone should google. This yellow actually means well. Could. Someone have googled what the colors mean before you put on your costume. I'm going to say that. All of this was organised orchestrated by God to let us know. That was bullshit which we already knew. which we already knew and the black clock is. Actually showed up with those and told them to wear them in solidarity, which was a complete set up. Either somebody was being funny or somebody was completely ignorant, sabotaging a or they were just completely ignorant. I think it's important because I don't talk about politics. Lot I just don't find it helpful and I think when we slam trump. We kind of help him sometime. Yeah, you know I think a lot of people Don't realize that but I. Think it's important to in in and talks about this. She said everything I've learned about. Wipe. Fragility is from Liberal Progressives. Democrats get it wrong to yeah. Yeah, and I think it's important to realize this isn't a Democrat Republican thing. Democrats screw up and have blind spots. Do Dumb Shit yet this this kind of stuff is Malcolm X.. One, said I don't believe in progression in the Black Movement. because. You. We have a as a whole in our government have to recognize that racism systematic racism. The structures that were built were not built for black people, so we don't even there's no such thing as progression until that happened right until changes until until our legislation actually realizes. that. The system that you bill doesn't benefit black people, which is why we're calling to de-fund the police, which is why we're calling, you know to prosecute killer cops in the narrative that is put on that I it's it's it's very. It seems like a radical thing. Yes, defunding the police seems very radical to people, but it's actually not, and I can improve it, please. Because in rich neighborhoods, white neighborhoods Whether people there, too, but but in richer neighborhoods like your beverly hills or your billers don't have police. Sitting out on every single corner. People aren't really robbing the grocery stores or robbing their neighbors. None of that is happening because there's wealth there. So if we take the money, the three billion dollars that you want to give these police who are killing our people and put them in the neighborhoods and and fund get the homeless people jobs that are stealing because nobody is ever stealing anything because they just want to like Kimberly Jones's point, she was like. Don't look at the fact that people are looting. Look at the figure out why they're looting why we are in this country. Country and people feel the need to jump through broken windows to get a pair of shoes. Why are we in that situation in the first place because that money is being put to us how it should be if we go programs, mental health programs. Yes, isn't about no police officers. defunding police does I get why people just go to like our police officers. This is just chaos. You know the idea is that it goes to affordable housing. Possibly reparations thing that, but that is, but see that is reparation. Yes, because we built this country and the first time that black people did kind of not kind of, but they did built their own wealth. Black Wall. Street yeah, you know, It was a bunch of groups of white people got really upset that they were flourishing, and they came and killed in in birth that shit down. I I have cried so much I've cried so much in the last three weeks. Some are happy tears because I do see people starting to wake up. Hey that it had to take eight different camera angles from for George Floyd to lose his life. I hate that minutes a ten minute video and I hate that in lost his losses like after eight. And I hate that. It takes people to see black pain. For them to make it real. I hate that. We have been silenced in told Oh. You're just the black angry woman. Oh, you're scary, black man or you I hate it. because. I know so many beautiful things about our culture and we got our own shit to. We're left to deal with it in our own community without outside influences, judging it, but we got our own ship that we have to deal with, but on top of that. We have to fight on the outside. No. When we were when we were brought here, we were stripped of our dignity. I don't know I don't know. You. Know I know that my roots are Cameroonian in Ghanaian, but I don't know what tribe I was from I. Don't know what my my family there. I don't know traditions I. Don't know our our link, my original language. Can you imagine being put on a boat for months? You're laying in other. People's throw up and feces and dead bodies laying on a boat. You get to a country. And you're just you don't speak the language and you're being yelled and screamed at to work to built. And you have no clue what is going on. All you know is when you don't do what they tell you to do. They beat you. Learn to do what they tell you to do. And to be quiet and that has been going through our culture. We have learned in our culture. Do what they tell you to do. Policing was was founded in slate catching. To protect white neighborhoods in their property, which was the catch the slaves and bring them back. You know these are all things that people. Can just go google in research and understand. There's never been a moment in history. where a president has stood up and said. We need to reconcile what was done. To the two black people. Australia, did it? For the aboriginals. That are there but our country has it and so having the understanding that you will always as a white person or white passing person benefit. From sister racism from racism from from white supremacy, you benefit from an. Not involved you benefit from it. And until you are actively trying to not benefit from it to push against it to speak up for your Black Black Brown brothers and sisters people of Color that that suffer from at the hands of police. It's it's just not going to get better and I do understand you know Comfort the comfort in knowing I'm going have to purposely put myself in an uncomfortable position. To. For for progress to happen. I'm going to have to be okay with everybody telling a a racist joke in this environment, which is a micro aggression in my black friends there and they don't feel like they have their own agency to speak up. You ever cry a lot, but. That's how cry bet with bear. With a licensed professional. I have to be honest on this show. We obviously talk a lot about therapy. We talk a lot about edifying yourself. We talk a lot about taking care of yourself. Your feelings resentments. Your fears at the and I realized that not has time to drive to a therapist. Not Everyone I mean. They're so expensive. The reason I love better help so much because you get to do it in your own home on your computer, you can log into your account anytime. Send a message to your counselor. I've said this before my big problem with going. Going to therapy is by the time I. Get there already pissed off I'm stressed. Out Takes Forty five minutes to drive there in there for an hour. It takes three hours door. Now have an anger management that I didn't have before I went to a therapist more money, but yes, it's great. Because better help is a crisis line. It's not self help. It's professional counseling, so you don't do it. You don't have to fill your worst to call in. You can call them whenever you want for check in its therapy over what I mean. In the service. When I was twenty and dating narcissists. Worldwide. The service can committed to facilitating great therapeutic matches, so they make it easy and free to change counselors. If needed see, that's amazing. Because I have a hard time, also we should do better help service dogs because Mona is auditioning right now. I'm only what are you doing? You always have a hard time figuring out. If the council you have is right for you and this may their helping you figure that out for you? And it's more affordable than traditional offline counseling and financial aid is available as well. Hold on Mona. Sorry. My dog is really wanting to jump on the table. But I've been therapy so I'm not apologetic. I am not ashamed. It is what it is, and I'm an acceptance You know I just think it's so important, so many of these podcasts are talking about therapy and how to. Improve Your Life and improve your relationships in your self, esteem and self worth with no actual solution. That's what better help does.

Wondering and I need to take like a fish oil pill to fix that like I'm always stressing out about whether I've had too much or too little, and then it takes up so much real estate, my brain, if I have one of these every morning. I feel like box checked. Have One of these type of my PROZAC. I'm set for the data. They aren't great. I love the carrot cinnamon smoothie, but to be clear. They don't just have these guys. They also have soups. Harvest bowls flat breads and more. They have a lot of like. If you want a snack throughout the day on something healthy, they have these as well. And like I said they knew they never us. Preserve like I said they never US preserve. I, said. Can you not the audience listening? They don't you don't need to. They're not ignoring.

And I've heard a lot of white people say you know will know everyone. None. None of my black coworkers complain. They're fine. They can't. They fucking can't. In, so you WanNa talk about race. She talks about how she always had to be overly polite at work dress every day like it's a job interview. Laugh off racist jokes try to make my voice quieter was told my hair was too ethnic yet. So I just I think we have you know and in Hollywood I was talking about this. The other day is we do see so many successful black people we do have a lot of people follow you know Kevin Hearts and Michael Jordan. And and you know Lupita and we're like okay. We're good. Yeah, Oh, it's good. We're done. Right so this video which no one can unsee. Has. I think really shook up that ignorance of like? Oh! I thought everything was fine. Look all these rich. But I'm sure if you really if they ever wanted. To really talk about, we'll talk about it. Yeah and I know what I'm saying. This is part of what you're doing with this. Part of what I'm doing with. This HASHTAG is I have a started hashtag call on mutiny and it's a black woman, founded and led movement, and the intent of it is to in black silence in the entertainment industry. To hold power structures accountable for suppressing black experiences and to confront microaggressions with courage We have a lot of things that we're planning with it, but this first phase of it is really just get people to tell their stories It is not a lynch mob. That's not. That's not the point with CIANCI's It's not a witch hunt. It's not a I'm calling you out. It literally bore out of Samantha Wear. Who is the one that spoke out against Leah Michelle from what happened with her on the show and I saw a black woman getting attacked because she was selling her truth, and I was like Oh, hell, no I gotta I have to do something I have to say something in being. I'm just a funny person. I'm funny and I'm silly. And so I, of course I like. Put My little gifts up in response to drinking. I Put my gifts in response because I I've kind of done the done the work to get passed over that and I never want my life in my story to be entangled or my career to be entangled in somebody else's stuff. You know other people who don't want that to be your google. Yeah, that's comes up. It's just not. It's just not important to me. What was important to me? Was the stories that I was getting? from specifically black women who felt comfortable with me to tell their stories about you know being on set and certain things that they felt like they felt like they had no say in what they did with their hair. They felt like They couldn't call out the little micro aggressions that would happen that people don't think it's racism. you know putting on a song in saying the N. Word in front of a black person because you, you know you. You know that that's going to start an argument and they don't want. To you know it's all of those those little things in so I wanted to create. A space. For these. Black men and women in the entertainment industry to be able to tell their stories and collecting yet stuff that people are getting is every white person should read it black people know what's going on. This is homework for white people. You Bet Nicole Brown. I remember being on set. When fans had come visit, one was celebrating, a birthday exuberantly, said happy birthday. A white male cast mates said the word is birthday, not birthday. Why can't you enunciate? I had a cast member. Put their entire hand in my hair and practically scratch my scalp I just met this cast member about a week earlier when I made my frustration clear in the moment, and even emailed him later, his response was okay. I talk about what theater directors who refused to learn my name and called me. It is now the time. I mean these are. I was so upset that a brother said to me instead of having a conversation with employees, expressing my concern of Allah concern as the only black female student class. While others rehearsed modern materials, I could only be assigned to play a slave in a satire. Christine. social is her handle. Continued I'm sick and tired more needs to be done in the industry. We are more than just playing slaves. We're more than just playing the sidekick to the white woman we are leads. We are humans. Black women are more than that. We are capable of so much more. So there. You know I think again per your point of we think of racism as cross burnings, saying the N. word. You know attacking a black person allowing this stuff to happen around us and not using our privileged to stop it from happening and to protect the person who? Doesn't WANNA push it. You know I talked to a lot of my. I never spoke up because I'm I'm just so afraid of coming off angry. Of coming off belligerent, coming up difficult and I'd WanNa. Lose my job I've been literally `to that Oh you know. It's just unfortunate, but you know the white girls just they're. They're not disposable. The black black people colored they're. They're more disposable. The world that we live in Hollywood I remember one of my first. Big Auditions for a show I walked in. And this was the. Producer call. And I. Did, whatever got all the laughs, and it was really good, and I felt really confident, and I walked out. Now Mind you the role that I was going for I was the only black one the other? The others were white. And when I walked out. They called me back in I can hear the producers arguing. And I walked back in, and they go okay so we. We need you to You know, give it a little more spice we need you to. Give it in the the the one white man, this producer he's he's an actor, too and I cannot I cannot remember his name or his face, but I know that he was an actor. and he was just like this is ridiculous. He was pissed and he spoke up. He was like this is ridiculous. I'm not sitting in this room for this. And he walked out and you know I was like I. Think I was thirteen. Or fourteen years old so adding. Child Your Child? Yeah I didn't really understand. What that was about, but they were like. You know like kind of urban like you know how the black girls like give me a little neck and give me a little and I'm just I. DO remember thinking we'll do they ask. All the white girls were to do that. Or is it just? Me and so I just did it. Because I you know I, wanted the job. I was told by a hair person My my natural hair is really thick and curly, and I was told by a the head of hair. That I said Oh for the for the gallery shoot I'm GONNA wear. You know my own hair. And they told me it would just be easier for us if you just wear it, Warwick. This the gallery shooters like further billboard for all the stuff. You Cnet the big important one. Instead of finding someone, the biggest fight when I was in the middle of Created shown. You know you get in the middle of The contracts and stuff in what will be allocated to whom they were okay with the producer credit that I wanted you know the creator credit all of that stuff. They're okay with, but when it came down to hair. It was like bill. Fight of the century Yup I've I've been on shows where a black cast member shows up and the makeup and hair. People don't do black makeup or hair. It's a thing a lot of hair and makeup. People do not know how to do black hair and makeup n, what's more fucking white centric than, and it's an it's I was like so this is the thing you guys. WanNa. Fight me on. Not The percentages or the points that are more about. Her hair, getting your hair, reading air, I hair, person or getting a provable. Of the hair person that you guys getting tests, and you guys picking a couple of people in me being able to have approval, because it's not fair that I would have to do my own makeup. Fair that will have to my own own hair. Paid for them and for you to not understand why that is important. In how I present myself or for you to not care. I mean I worked on something. Where there was rain machine, and there was black robes like I'm not going into the machine. From was like why not? Actually. I. She had to be quote difficult. She's holding things up. Because people didn't take the time to understand didn't watch Chris Rock documentary whatever it was. To educate themselves about it, and then she had you know it. We're kind of at a point where. In white feminism. When you set a boundary, ask for something. You're a bad bitch, your boss, we're not at that place with black woman women where they feel like they can advocate for themselves without feeling like they're angry. Black Women. Most likely mean don't subscribe to Feminism Yeah. Oh. The women's March first women's March. I learned the hard way went down to the women's March, not one black woman. I was like Wait. What's happening one? It was like we put up the black the black woman. WIG ON I went I called the girlfriend of mine at WHO's black and I was like. Hey, where are you? She was like. White women jumped. The line is what she's. You GO I. Mean, we will sit. We will sit and we will see. And then I went to the second women's March, and there were five black women there, and they were holding signs that said White Women are why trump is president? Damn. Okay copy that. Yeah, it's You know right now. You know there's a lot of like I said I'm I'm more of a person that likes. I'm a healer I want. I want unity, but before we can get that. We have to know what we're unifying We have to understand what is going on and I I was trying to find okay. Where do I fall on the spectrum? Of Activism I'm I I'm a nerd. I like to read I like knowing facts and figures in you know percentages in Okay I love to be a I love being able to explain things to people. I wanted to be a teacher I'm a singer, my voice, all we know the. Hour. We know the gift that the gift that God gave me. Heels and settles and I. Know That about about myself. I was a funeral singer. I had a funeral thing career. Okay, because he really it, so healing I'm like okay so I I had to figure out where I feel on the spectrum of activism in for me, Y say like celebrity. Activism really isn't for me. She just yet. You tweeted that because I don't care about the optics of it right, does it a lot of it feel performance of as? Cloud chasing. Can I ask you a dumb question? When does it not feel performance? I mean like okay. That's helpful. I'm I can't. I can only say for myself. oh, yeah, one black person's answered. Dozen represented yeah yeah I can only say for myself like. First of all skin Fokin Kinfolk, so just because a black person is doing. It doesn't mean it is right in this. or No Hurston? Yes, so you need to know that. But for me personally. It's it's the intention behind why I'm doing it and everything that I do. I talked to myself and I'm like. Are we doing this for optics? Or is our heart in the right place. Who is this going to help? How is this going to help them? What is going to be the resolution everything that I do? I want to be resolution base. Which is why we had that six hours a strategy meeting yesterday for on Meaty because there has to be a solution. It can't be. If you're going to put out this frustrating and fiery energy. That we have to be able to hone it and put it somewhere constructive. And that is that is ultimately the goal I think it gets performance. Give when you just show up to take a picturing a home I think it gives happening a quite a bit. Yes, yeah, and I think it gets performance. when you shoot a music video in front of in a march where it should have been. A vigil for an in about. Brianna Taylor who's killed. WHO's killers are still not over. They're still walking around here free. I think he gets in. That's just my opinion I think he just gets. It gets performance. When there's no risk. When you're not when you're not afraid of losing some when you're afraid of losing something, so you choose to be on the safer side of things, and just while we're talking about it, if that pissed you off to hear that about Brown Taylor Call, Louisville Mayor, Greg Fischer. Five, zero, two, five, seven, four, two, zero, three in demand, the to fire the officers who murdered Brianna Taylor. You can call the Attorney General. Daniel Cameron at five to prosecutors, six, nine, three, five, three Oh in demand. He charged the officers who murdered Brianna Taylor. Yep I got them all the. Instagram, when this is out, there's really no excuse I'm making it super easy for you. Guys You can send an email if you wanna send an email instead Attorney General at ag Dot K, Y, Dot Gov. Listen, they all know me by now. I have time I will sit and re dial. Redound care. If you guys got that thing off a look. I'm going to get through mentally, does it? Dumb question I'm asking them not scared time for white people to bare not. Quiet despair solve any wrong. That's fair. Not Dome Cray I'm white I'm fragile, but I gotta get over making this about my fragility. Is it frustrating to have to D-? Such a dumb question to. have to deal with this every day, and also on top of that have to be an activist. This is why I want to say. This is white people's problem. This is our problem to solve. The victims are now having to solve the problem of the perpetrator it's. It's painful. It's frustrating. But it's it's more painful because it's willful ignorance at this point. I don't know if you've ever. Had a situation where you were trying. Get somebody's attention for really really long time like hey, married, Manila, on its. Yes, Hey, hi! CAUSING DOCTORS HBO Yeah. My Dad Dad's approval. Don't make me laugh. My Dad. You are horrible day. Point. It just becomes. It's it's that feeling of. Okay now everybody wants to listen and that's great because it's popular so. There was a there was a time. Where lives matter was a radical which I'm not I am not affiliated with. I WanNa make that clear. My opinions are my own but there was a time where Hashtag black lives, matter or saying black lives. Matter was radical. Now it's popular. Because as as in the psychiatrist as cloud as we've seen with with black coacher. Over time, a lot of things happened with black coach first at our demonized until until someone white comes along and Columbus's that shed, and then it's popular. So there's. Black lives matter was once radical. Now not radical anymore. Everybody's saying black lives matter. It's the popular thing to do. It's popular to you know, go down to the March and have your signs in all this kind of stuff. It's very popular to do it. We have to move past now. Black lives matter in move into the real work. This is an a trend. It's not a trained. It is not a moment. It's a movement. Movement means we have to be moving forward That means every day. We have to be figuring out. What am I going to do today? To fight white supremacy. What am I going to do today? To to amplify the voices of those that know what the fuck they're talking about? What am I gonNA do today to teach myself I. You know there's so many white people that are like I'm talking to that are like what to do I. Don't know if I should post or shouldn't post them. Like what is the just re post? Someone that needs more followers reposted people that do know what they're talking about, and they wouldn't have to put it in your own words. You don't know you don't know. You should not be agonizing over this caption. People asked me to proofreader captions. Re tweet Brittany Panic Cunningham just re tweet. Other people girl breeding. I was like lovers. My, you're my mentor. I don't care. I don't Care Care Yeah. I'm following you I. Annoy her her Shit I annoy her. Every day. I love Britain's. There's actually something really cool going on a the Mike the Share, the Mike where white women are lending their instagram, shoe black women. To amplify their voices, and to be able to talk about things that are going to letting them. Take over their whole. And and and honestly it's it's. It's all all all in an effort to even the playing field know that dumb ass tweet that Terry crews. Put out about blacks permanently from he does not exist. Shut the fuck up. That, dumb as tweet. Is, is what what we're trying to be? It's about. Equality, that's what we're fighting for. We're not fighting to be a ahead or above white people. We're just fighting to the point where we can all just. Where people and we all bleed the same. Blood, David or yellow just said it's so concisely and clearly we just want a piece of the Pie we helped make. It's it's. An and it's because. I mean it was even some of this stuff with systematic racism that was ingrained in me. You know I fail I fail on the side of will black on black crime until we get together. They're gonNA. They're not going to respect. US until we start respecting one another. That's bullshit. Crime is a result of not having the same opportunities in the same education, the same after school programs and mental health resources. It's like that's not addressing the root of them. No, not addressing when your only option in life is crime. You're going to. You're going to end. Black on black crime doesn't exist just like white on white crime doesn't exist in. Asia on Asian crime doesn't exist it. The numbers that people are seeing are the stats because of proximity. We are in black neighborhoods therefore usually when it's a violent. It is get another black person. If you are in a white neighborhood, predominantly white neighborhood, usually, there's violence is going to be against another white person, so that is not an just who's close behind is literally whose closed by like in that is in. I felt so dumb when I realized that because I was like that's kind of common sense, this is. This is a map thing. It's common sense. Yeah, that's what I'm using compensates I'm gonNA use that from now on there is something I read. That was really. I hate the word powerful But when there were the protests going on which I'm going to. Call Bullshit on the media right now. The the because websites and news media that sounded weirdly already. Are So about cliques, and so about absolutely views they're only. Covering the drama yet. A negatively these these protests for the most part although some blind spots, and some not reading the room like the majority of these have not. They're just playing one clip about someone breaking a window you know, and that's it so it's like projecting that to. Every riots like it's just not. True. But one of the protests would turn into a march. They made very sure to go into Belair. There was a huge conversation about the. They're coming to BEL air. We need to board up all the ads why they were afraid. And the purpose of that was to make rich white people uncomfortable so that they knew what it was like on some level, a modicum of what is like to be black every day. Oh. You're uncomfortable for four hours. Yeah, by people have like this every single day right? So that was intentional and I think people were kind of missing. The point of that wasn't a go. It wasn't to go down and destroy anything. No one wants your found. That's that that's not but also understanding like what I said before when people. We're looking at the symptom when we really needs to be paying attention to the problem, the symptom is yes. People steal the symptom is yes. There is violence in our neighborhoods. The symptom is yes. Some people are not getting proper education. In England, at Inglewood, high, school one of my friends son was going Eagle with high school. They share books and they can't take the books home. and. They xerox pages to read, and these are teachers taking money out of their own pockets to do this, so you WanNa. Tell me defunding doesn't exist you. D funded education in these impoverished neighborhoods time after time. They're getting less and less there. The parks are abysmal. Kids when I was growing up were beautiful. Yeah, I grew up in Compton California. And I I had a better view of going out and being a kid. Even though that there there was violence in gang violence in all of that, and we can even get deeper into that, but I'm not gonNA. I'M NOT GONNA. I'M NOT GONNA. Even go there because we will literally be here for hours, but. I think a people's main takeaway is check your privilege. Check your privilege understand that you have it and. Know that we just want you to recognize it. We hate white people. Yup, it doesn't mean that you know. We think why. People are bad, and you know what I'm saying, but we but we need you to understand. That you also are operating in the system in benefiting from it, and it might be subconscious. Like if I like I, think you know it's important to read this tweet from Duane reade R.. E. E. D.. White supremacy won't die until white people see it as a white issue. They need to solve rather than a black issue. They need to empathize with. So there's a little bit of this sort of white savior like I'm so sad about this I'm I'm talking to a lot of people that are upset about it. No one needs you to be. They need to do something. Judge like you being sad it. You're just making about you. And the way Robin Diangelo defines white for Gylfi as the inability of white people to tolerate racial stress. This leads white people to weaponize their hurt feelings, and being indignant and defensive when confronted with Rachel Rachel, Rachel racial inequality and injustice. Try I get so nervous. Reading quotes way, are we? Are We, are we? Now going to call racism Rachel. Rachel inequality Rachel's upset. Racial injustice in bags. Something that's happening. Rachel has posted the blackbox on twitter. She has posted a Selfie of shop at better in your. Rachel cannot handle these Rachel, injustice Rachel discrimination as out Rachel goal. Oh my God. That is so funny. It'd be what I see white. Think of a girl named show so. I was by the way reading. mlk quotes letter from Birmingham jail the other day with David Yellow and I kept stuttering. I kept stuttering just I was so nervous reading an LA. And okay quote in front of him and I just kept fucking it up. And then as I was reading it I saw two lines down that the word Negro was coming up. I was in such a panic you can, you can hear me stutter. And I looked at him like Kenai. It was awful. It was awful, but fine. Fuck. It I'm happy to be Rachel today windy. Would you be so nervous and scared? His wife fragility thing I I get what she's talking about. 'cause I think there's this perfectionism. I want to be perfect anti-racist. I don't WanNa. Come Up I. DON'T WANNA make mistakes. We have to make mistakes right now. We have to build a buck up. We have to be able to go. You know what I think I handled that wrong I'm sorry. I. You know it's interesting because I was thinking about. Your Hashtag and having worked in writers, rooms, and run TV shows and Look I. I was an EP on Roseanne, you know. It's been a tricky rolled before the tweet before the tweet deported, two days left before the. Before the tweet. But I found myself when I. You know Black People that worked at the show that was on I found myself like overly compensating to try to make sure they were comfortable and represented to a point to where it was almost like patronizing. And I was actually making more harder. I didn't even realize so. It's like we're GONNA. Writer's room so badly wanted to make sure they felt hurt. And that they that you know so like what do you think? What do you? Th- constantly I forcing them to talk more than they want. You know what I mean. Yeah, you know and just good intentions. That's not what we're talking about. Yeah, no one's like I think when people hear white privilege when they hear why fragility. They think you have bad intentions we're talking about. We're talking about your conditioning. Retirement your program. We're talking about subconscious racial bias, and just being Zombie, going to the world benefiting not even necessarily knowing you're benefiting, you know sixteen nineteen Please listen to that podcast. It really helps Soga so good. You understand the way we are still haunted by slave away. Black people are still haunted by going to the doctor by going out and it just all of the TRAUMAS, the ancestral trauma that has been inherited and Health conditions that have been inherited the constant. FEAR PTSD of like. Can I go bird watching today without? Rachel calling. The police on me the daily Traumas you know and. Oh, my God and so. It's just A. I think a very important. Realize known saying. You're I think why people are so afraid of being called a bad. We associate we go. You have fertility of white privilege. You are bad person. You haven't had it hard. Everyone thinks they've had it heart. Everyone's had adversity in their life because the first thing they usually when you talk about. White privilege is, they'll say I'm not rich. That's not what we're. It's our saying that's not what we're saying. But. You probably the mayor do. Right you probably do have the ability to go into a store and not be followed around, or you can wear a feeling outside that up now or the feeling of going to a store and having to. Make sure that you greet the person in make eye contact with the security because you don't want them to think that you're coming in here to steal. That is a big thing for me I was. I was yelled at by by someone going into a store with my friends. You guys have to come in here. One by one and I'm like Y. Kazan no intention in stealing. And you know so I'm GonNa Li. Like you know those little those those little. That wasn't if that was BLOOMINGTON racism, but like even the little microaggressions like touching the hair in in all of all of that. And you know for white people. It's not about you being. A good person or a bad person it's about you being a person in seeing another person and being able in like. Please thought with the I. Don't see Color Shit. That's bullshit. I'm something to radio. Everybody sees color. You have to not. Attach judgment to that color and how you react to that person, you should be able to see the night in very very black. I don't care if they're ghetto. I. Don't care if they're vernacular isn't like yours I don't care. If they got red braids, or whatever we have to erase these judgments, and these these stereotypes of when we see black people. That's what you need to work on it is it is Lazy To Nazi color I think, but I think why people truly think. They nail it when they say that. I'm colorblind done handled like Are, you actually like what are you? Is the dress golden blue. Dame we're playing was. The dress blue I don't know. I don't see color. See I just saw it in black and white. It was blue, dammit. That'd be something to keep an. Said Oh No sure. What happened? No, don't put me in a Corner Whitney. About what would she say that was just about? You know we I've been seeing a lot on instagram. Bars you know saying, don't come from my name not. At all love Nikki. Just what I had. Let me start with this. Being a lot. On social media. Of A quote that says love Black People like you love Black Culture Oh. Yeah, you mean seeing that a lot. We've also been saying that a lot. Why what is that? Help for the people that don't understand what that means? What does it mean white people make a lot of money black culture. Look at a U. Music Industry. Would you like to Chime in on that? No, if I chime in on that, I'm going to have the name names in I. Have, promised! But I wouldn't get in too much. About it. weakened. CUT It out if you want. Nikki says come on. You can't want the good without the bad if you WANNA enjoy our culture and our lifestyle bond with us with us have fun with us to work with us rap with us, then you should also want to know what affects us during us, and what we feel is unfair to us. You shouldn't not wants to know that yeah. Since. We've sat down. Really Stop Myself from crying. Just so you know, don't talk about. Obviously. He's really trying to him by the way. Don't if don't if you don't want to? I be regarding what is that? You just said about the industry. This touch on it. A little bit. But. I'm I'm playing this in tribute to jazz in who she was? Writer brilliant writer, but she talked her shit and it was. Amazing and this is what she said. Nigger, but you don't Wanna be followed around a store. You WanNa. Stay new, but you don't want to be discriminated by police. We want they. Not Be ever get fucking cabin the rain you want like you won't be naked, fucking naked, living their delight, if not the kick that should. Sale Risen. But I'll tell you. I mean that's the music industry. As a whole. I really have to say I I appreciate with Justin Bieber posted. I think that he really meant. What he said I do not but. But you know you guys didn't know Whitney a In a bunker so I, have no. Let me it's on my phone. Ever I'm old and you can literally in a bunker. Get you on that. We're not in a bunker. No, I forgot to get you online. Hold on I'm going to do that right now. I. Yep, you're on. You're Welkom. Rank you active anti-racism today. No, not how it works. Okay, so this would just in I I appreciate. Appreciate it what? Justin bieber would just. Don't know if he needs me. He has a hundred and thirty eight million. He's good, Justin. How do you suppose named Julius Caesar? Does he have a duck his? Yeah, okay. I think that has something that I'm inspired by Black Culture I. Fitted off black culture, my style how I sing dance, perform and my fashion have all been influenced and inspired by black culture. Wow, I am committed to using my platform from this day forward to learn to speak up about racial injustice in systemic oppression, and to identify ways to be part of much needed change. And then he went on to like you know put some. People post on people that he. Posted usher. That's fantastic. You know that he admired. Yeah people are waking up in an and Co in. It being cool is a part of. People, waking up and be more comfortable in speaking out about this is something in the industry that myself in my a manager talk about a lot, because I'm coming out with an EP, finally coming out with original music and when? I say okay. I mean there was gonna be a rollout, but then all of this thing happened, and I was like it's completely toned. Says way completely toned effort to put? Anything out right now. and so we kinda had to regroup and figure it out, but one thing that we do talk about is how hard it is black at black artists. To be an RB artists that writes and sings what why artists do and if people don't understand how the industry works as far as radio you have to. You have to Pick a John John Mara Before your music comes out because that is going to determine which charts you're on. And the reason that people usually pick like urban black people pick urban is because. They won't put you on the pop charts. They just won't. They'll put you know white people that same close to rb. Music or legitimate aren't legitimate. Rb Music that are written by black artists that are produced by black producers, but if it's a black girl, then it's not gonNa make it to the pop charts. Is that like I? Mean I've I've thought this was just straight up racist, but when they didn't put little NAS on the country chart. Yes, it's like it's I. It's the same. Or when they they Got Mad when beyond saying country on the as she saying Daddy's little girl, she sang that song from lemonade, which was a country song and she's. She's from Texas like Tanya. She sings. She grew up in country music too, but. The CMA's posted her on their page during the awards and people went. Nuts because of it and they had to take the tweet down now. People were upset. Country Music Ours. You know so. It's it's in. It's in the music industry also There are millions of stories about it. They're they're artists that wanted to be artists in ended up becoming writers because the labels like well, we loved the song. We don't know if we can sell you with it, but can we give it to? You know XYZ. White girl, white boy, and should I twain sing it, yeah. Can't Unite Twain. Leeann Ryan! That's literally you know what happens, and then black people ended up becoming once again the producers of the culture, but not the face of it. And these are just these are just facts like I like when I feel like as a black person. When we talk about these things like this, the first thing people WanNa say oh. We get your black. Dress like we, but no, it's not. It's beyond that I. Live in a system where I can't fully be myself in. Speak my truth every day in like or have about truth. And that's you know that's the main reason started mutiny. I want black people to be able. To feel like they have a place. Were there they can air their grievances and it'll be that energy will be taken in something. Constructive will happen with it. and I'M GONNA encourage black actors. Producers anyone in the entertainment space. I'm only encourage you to please continue telling your story right now. That is the first phase of what we're doing. Hashtag on mutiny and white olive oil dealer. It's it's it's so. You know it pisses me off that. You know black. People have to do more work to Nah now. I had to live through this. I got traumatized by this I. Now have to tweet about it like it's. It's you know the onus is now white people to learn about that, so they can see it and go. Oh, yeah, he just said some that racist joke. That everyone's laughing at like I need to do something about that I've dealt with that, too, you know. A racist joke said in front of me by somebody that was very powerful that could. In my career. That actually reached out to me because they're afraid now. Okay, not in a joke I had to get a cavity removed the other day, and then they put a little topper on it like a hat. Hat! And it hurts so bad I was trying to do. Whatever painkillers thinking allowed to say which ones like over the counter ones nothing worked, and then I was texting. My Ad Sales Guy Because I complained if I've been paying everyone's GonNa know about it. And he was like. Why don't you use calipers long phone? And I was like Oh my God and I put the caliber CBD. In my t felt better literally within twenty minutes. SORTA. God best pretty amazing is some good stuff. Be d the problem with most CD's star. I'M GONNA. Cut You off I'm you finish in a second? But.

I remember my first interview that I did after the interview the lady goals he puts her hand on my shoulder. Hate this bitch to this day. I see her all the time on TV ovulate. Twitter hand on my shoulder and she goes how? You are incredibly well spoke So eloquent, I go thanks. Why are you so surprised? She goes.

On another on another different show we were doing our interview. Something was happening in the background. There were still sitting up the camera. And I was looking behind, and she was like Oh. Can you look into camera and I thought I heard somebody say I said Okay thought her somebody say my name and I turned away round again, and she literally took her hands in. Turn my face. To Camera I. I really from Compton. Like and I don't know if people know this, but all black people have an invisible, but. and Eureka three cove pre Kobe. We have always socially.

My nails were digging so hard into my hands, 'cause I want to knock this bitch out. Did you honestly just touched my face? Are you out of your mind same bitch and didn't even remember me. From the first interview and from the interaction that we had. Because I tried to reminder of it, so she didn't remember she played ignorant. Or was it. Or was ignorant, but the the the. Fact that you felt comfortable raising enough now. To put your hands on my face in. Turn my head around. All you have lost your mind your mind. You have lost your mind but there's some positive things that are happening I. I yeah I don't WanNa all like this. Can I ask them? We can always cut it. How do you feel about The Ban Lady Antebellum, changing their name to lady a they did not take into account, the associations that way down this role, referring to the period of history before the civil war which includes slavery. Also they heard about the movie. That's coming out oh. Is that it Antebellum Yeah? was, Navy said in Geno Monet. I mean. It makes more comfortable. Optics I mean. Even makes me feel like why cards said like gestures are cool, but like I don't i? Don't mind. Can I ask you a question? How do you feel about when celebrities post the amount they donated or that they donated. Is it setting a good example, or is it obnoxious and bragging I I think it's a little bit of both I. Think it's like Hey, look I did something, but I also think that encourages others to give. I think so too, I'm I'm very torn on it. I don't know the answer. And I did something on the packets where I made fun of celebrities that think post about donating is a donation. Like when rich celebrities ask people without money to donate from their mansions like just donate this cosmic. Donate to be here I think it's okay if you're if you're saying. Hey, look I I, said I. Actually was in DC and was walking around because I loved. I just love DC I love I'm from learn really love. Walking And there was this. Ice. Cream shop, southwest Soda, pop shop. Nice and it's black owned of. And just kind of walking around in that particular area. I think it was I wanna say it was like the fish market area. Yeah, so they were over there.

We're trying to stay afloat and because of Corona Virus Blah. Blah Blah Blah Blah so I was like okay. How do I want to let people know? About their go fund me. and I'm going to donate, but how do I do that without making it making it about me now, so basically, I, said Hey, guys. I'm going to donate. One hundred dollars in everyone that matches might one hundred dollars I'm GonNa send you a private message in your diem that you can save. You know that they think they raise like five thousand extra dollars or something like that selfless soda pop shop. Awesome and I felt like that was a way to do it to. Where people knew that I was actually give me yeah, and It's also a way of sending the message. Like Hey, you can do this two. Hundred dollars like you know, stop actually gave more than but I, but. I DIDN'T WANNA I. I do not weird. He. To me much shame around money. We have so much shame, and you know for me. I've just sort of been in this position where I'm just like Donate the proceeds like. Do I let people know? I donated the amount I posted the amount that I took it down and I like I was like fuck. I just want to set an example that I'm walking the walk without trying to be sanctimonious are bragging or performance and like you. We have to talk to Whitney about her white guilt. We have to like figure out we also to talk about my eyeliner brands because it's getting in my. Your is I've been watering. Says you sat down?

Like having to maintain an image, yeah, I think so my mom hated to. But it school. I've had a potty mouth my whole entire life. Cursing makes me feel really good. Did your parents ever give you a talk of like I? Mean you mentioned a little bit before your mom? You have to be twice as good. You have to take up, or you have to like talk like this is how you have to conduct yourself in public, you know. I played the video last week of a black teenager. He was saying all the things you know. Don't wear a wife beater. Make sure you always have a receipt when you walk out a stores. Don't put your Hoodie out. Don't let your pants like all the things. Were you told as a as a girl, not so much. Because that is usually a talk that they have a black boys. But it was. It's in the comments that your parents make. That you. Download. Oh okay people do get followed around in stores you. That remember. My mom walked to the grocery store around the corner one day and we lived in a predominantly white neighborhood at this point. And she left her wallet. She only checkbook. So she wrote a check for our groceries that day in the guy was just. Like he didn't even put it in. He was like Oh I would have to call the bank you know. He was being like he didn't want. Meanwhile I could have been like I. Forgot while just pay next week when I. Sure yeah, so it's those little that you saw you know those little stories in things that you kind of download as a black girl because you know black girls, experience is a little different than. black boys, experience, but one thing that is the that is the same as we have to grow up really fast. We, don't we don't get childhoods like others GIG childhoods. We have to understand things. understand racism. Understand how we have to move through the world differently, and and you get it you. You see it, you know. They're. Little black kids being arrested I just watched a video last night of a little I think he was like. Literally he's talking keeps twelve. He was twelve years old and he's literally talking I'm like he sounds like Mickey Mouse. How are you arresting someone that sounds like Mickey Mouse. He literally was like can off my back man like you know this little boys and they put a bag over his head, saying he was spitting. No I wasn't and they were like well. We we we don't WANNA risk it if he spits so they have him arrested in the middle of on the concrete. With a bag over his head and there's this you know over sexualization of black women. And Children. Their children the whole thing that happened with Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin I'm like you guys are acting like. A grown man, he was a child Mike Brown may have stolen cigarettes or whatever it is that they said that he stole from the place why they stopped him. He's a kid. He. He was a kid. It's Never A. Kid, don't so we'd yeah. Don't don't walking around your sixteen. Don't walk around. It's never. It's it's never that in, so you want to talk about race She talks about how we should challenge the language that stereotype, black and brown kids. How often have you heard people? Talk of thugs, hoodlums, gang bangers, and known almost immediately. They were talking about black and Brown youth. Our children are criminalized in casual conversation. Yes, schools to. Go over predominantly black school to a white school walking home. Having a bit goat thrown at me, being called a Nigger, a big gulp a big Gulp. Big. slushy thrown at me. Being clean you when that happened sixteen. Sixteen years old when that happened Countless stories being that white school. Countless stories. There was a picture that we said we were bothered by. Of a black hand holding cotton. With sat with the Sun rising in the. In our office in the office and we were like take down. Take this shit down. Is I'm not gonNA, Laugh, but that is just beyond AIDS. Bunny, it is funny like it's a cartoon offensive. It's yeah, it's stupid. But. US bring it bringing it up was. Yeah. She fly. Do you now that you're famous and successful. Do you ever have to deal with the ethical dilemma? Dilemma of like what parts you are willing to play? And what parts feel like I? Really WanNa job, but like this is just not absolutely you have. All the time and you have the added pressure now having to be a role model, and not contributing to these images that you know we see if the black best friend, the Sassy black or whatever stereotype. Yeah, I've I've kind of moved beyond that 'CAUSE, it's not even just me being A. Black woman I'm applies black woman also, and that's A. You know we talk about intersection analogy. That's a whole other issue in in Hollywood. You know you think black women don't get leaser Asian women. Don't get leads or you know. Plus size women black plus size. Women don't get leads. You may see. A Melissa McCarthy. But you're not going to see or you know Queen. Latifah because she's gotten her respect in the game, and but you rarely ever see women. That looked like me that. You know play leads but. I am very specific with my agent about stuff that I wanNA. Go out for I'm like listen. I don't want to just be. The Jimmy Cricket character who keeps the white person from doing something crazy? In the movie I call it Jiminy. Cricket effect with black person is like the moral always accept Yup Yup Yup Yup. Go to for advice, so do have very by outlook for the guy you go down to the basketball court where they're playing basketball out doors. And to ask hey I need some advice. And the wise sage advice, yeah, Jimmy, crooked character the whole. You know. It's it. It's a lot and. I. Think what people were unfolding there. Some some black people that are also Taking their blinders off because it hurts. It hurts, it hurts to recognize that. Oh, you were disrespected by that person. Oh. You were assaulted by that person you were made to. That wasn't just a joke. That was a micro aggression like. We have. Learned like just like our ancestors taught. Our great grandparents or grandparents how to just be quiet? Suck it up, and and you know shrink. And then we got a little more liberation in now it's like. Just be satisfied with the fact that you're not. You know segregated that you don't have segregated restrooms that you don't Bub-bubba and now it's too. It's another era where we're not just going to be satisfied. We want what we want what we came for. What we were brought over here for we want we want to be. Paid. We want reconciliation. We want you to help us build community. Kimberly Jones. We don't own anything. We. Don't own anything I. Mean I just like burst into tears when I? It's a kind of thing that is away prison. You just don't ever have to think about that. We don't own anything. We can't build wealth. Don't on a hamster wheel have agency. We do not, if even if you have the money. To build the wealth, like people are trying to buy back the neighborhood. You still got to go through city council to get permits. You still have to deal with the police showing up because it's a crowd of black people in that's a threat. They're the. It's. It's A. It's hard moving forward. Two steps in being pushed back five, and then having to push even harder to get you know further in and I don't I. Don't want white people to see black people as victim. That's not what it is. This is just our reality. We are very resilient people. We just Never had the opportunity to really build communities. We have sub communities. There's New York culture. There's Florida culture. There's California coaches. There's Texas. Culture but there is no one unified voice. All across America. Of, a black people that are saying. You know. We don't have that one leader. We don't have that one voice that we speak to. That speaks for us. We just don't have that. And that was done on purpose. The Vita conquer that that was that was. That was done on purpose. Strip them of their identity. Give them their identity. Don't let them don't let them ever come together with what's happening now. Alliances, which is what's happening now and I'm really trying to be that person all these different organizations in all these different protests in all these different you know. Can we all just come together Jay? Agree, yeah visas is this is. This is too much. You have the eight can't wait now you got the two can't wait yeah? And then you have defunding police. You Got Abolish police which I am. An abolition is I do believe in abolishing believes in I, do believe in abolishing burdens and I think it's important to say you know when people get overwhelmed by that and freaked out by that. We talked about this last week about the cahoots program in. Eugene Oregon. Which is an experiment in sending out mental health professionals to deescalate the situation? It's just taking a new approach to this. Sending out mental health professionals instead of police with guns I first responders. That's right. Funding are first responders in in every community. They don't fund them. They fund the police. We don't need if someone that has. Autism is having an episode or is bipolar is having an episode. Child or child is getting a bag, put over their head and stressed out and does not have the tools yet. Yeah, to manage stress in fear. I the person that shows up doesn't need to be a police officer. The person that shows up needs to be someone that is trained. To deal with. A mental health issue. That knows how to restrain without harming de escalate. In nurses know how to do that. My my friend Sheena. She's the she's really funny. She wanted really funny video that went viral of telling people like. Don't bring your answer to this hospital. You'll have covert, you know. She was so fucking funny. It was so. Beautiful and we became friends over grabbed her. Ratio Heavy linter Karen is her mom, and she demands to speak to the manager until care and stuff. and. She we had a conversation her. She was like amber i. have had hostile patients. All the time and not one time has it been reported that they have a mark or a bruise on them, but I banged pay cuts. But we. Bank. I jammed my finger banging pans. Fix It. But she's really you know. She was really helping me, even understand. The separation in the hospital business how they put all the black nurses on the lower floors without all of the supplies and things that they need and up in the nick you with the babies, and like all of those that surgery centers in all of that are all the white nurses are? So? She said as far as those numbers going up. She said it's nurses that are actually getting sick black nurses. And black workers that are actually getting Kobe. That's a big reason why the numbers are going up also because we have to work in this environment. She hasn't seen her son in months. She hasn't been able to hold her son in months because she doesn't want to risk you know him getting. Kobe. If she does or anything you know because she she works in that in actual environment, so so it is very very possible for It's very very possible for there to be a world where. police. Is Not the first response I'll start their abolishing police scarce people. We're going to say de-fund. They don't know why it scares them, but it does. Your. They're like well. WHO WILL PROTECT US in black? People are like. We'll killing us. They don't protect us. Like they are there to protect us from you, that is. That is the whole way that it was set up. Give that through your head. They're not here to protect us they to control us, uh. They're not. We're not even seen as as lives at this point if you can put. If. That's saying video came out. It was a dog why people would be pissed. This is correct, so a friend of mine said I didn't WanNA bring it up. I didn't WanNA bring it up, but a friend of mine said the other day. I black friends. Don't want Brag. People people say it like I mean people throw that I, have black friends. Like that is that's it? If, you donate it. in some way or you get points for that He said if white people just treated black people half as well as they treat their dogs. Medical care. Healthy food. In they sleep in the bed, you know. Three hundred, whatever if they treat us half as well as they treat their dogs, I mean actually. Manda mangams spoil their. Dogs they're not homeless people. It's It's a Doozie. Easy? They also think that black women are just being dramatic. When we talk about our symptoms, they're very much so dismissed. not to mention plus size black women when you go in if you are anything bigger than like a hundred twenty pounds a hundred. Ten pounds. They're going to tell you that you root issues your diet. That that has happened couldn't be the inherited ancestral trauma. Its my immune system and my cortisol higher again like I'm like no like when I was dealing with anxiety, really bad and I didn't know that my symptoms worrying. Zaidi I was dismissed much by doctors I finally had to find a doctor of color. She's in in Indian woman and she sat down, actually had a conversation with me whereas another doctor told me I. Don't understand what you want me to do. Because I. I had a Migraine for seven weeks. I don't understand what what it is yeah I mean. I can give you these and these anti inflammatories, but honestly the headaches are probably coming from your diet I was like well. I'm Vegan. By the head migrants ten years, no one ever said that gate. I'm Vegan that I I actually work out five times a week and really love it. I've recently lost thirty pounds so I. Don't think I don't really think. I really don't think that that's the reason that I'm having migraines. And then then it was. It was a mental health issue and it had a lot to do with what was happening just like in the world. That's really what it was and so yeah, because it really is neuro chemicals adrenaline cortisol. That's what migrants are from a lot of people stress the stress of just being black. When my nervous system is triggered. My nervous system was. It? was on a thousand like my heart was beating out of my chest to the point where I kept going to the Er because I thought I was having a heart attack and nothing was helping. Nothing will call me down nothing until I realized Oh. You're depressed in your. Body so then I found. You know the help that I needed in now. I'm okay, but. A took me going to multiple doctors. Tell Ni os just because you're. Before we sat and talked to someone that listen to me. And that's that's issue. I mean I I had My mom had a friend that died a year and a half ago because she went to the emergency room and she was having breathing issues. She was like no I know that I have asthma, but this is different. Something is different. Something's not right and they completely dismissed her. They gave her a little breathing treatment and told her to go home. Just use your inhaler. She died soon as she got home. Because I and I and I am in no way like. I know. It's kind of like when I was an actor in and we're like three years in on glee and people will be like. Are you excited? I understand that as as an ER doctor. This shit you deal with ever all day and you can't emotionally get involved with it, or you will be depleted when you get home. I underst- I understand from that standpoint, but you. This is the job you chose your angel. You're going like I understand where you're coming up yet. Forgive you. We'll because I tried you know I. Try to be balanced in my in my thinking and and see what a person where a person is coming from. Yeah, I always try to have that balance so that I can respond in the correct way so that the result is what it should be. So I do understand that some people knew grace in some people need to, because the fuck out, and and you have to be able to fit to balancing way and be like nominal because you out today tax. That's what's going to happen. Because this is this. Is just you being an ass? You know that's the that's the difference but yeah balances important people understanding just like D- reiterate some of the things that we said because I wanted to be a teacher in this is what teachers do. just. Just going to be tested. Yes. This is. Just some bullet points, black people are not trying to. As Terry crews said create. Black supremacy, which does not exist. I've never even heard anyone utter those words like he pulled that so far up from his ass like I was like. WHAT IS BLACK SUPREMACY? Do not get these white people scared thinking that we're trying to achieve black supremacy. That is not what's happening. You're up message. Please shut up. Please, we was. Trying to find the tweet I, stopped following him after the OH. Yeah Oh yeah! Just a couple when you can't mountain just decided that you were gonNA. Make Steve Nobody, asks start. Defeating, white supremacy without white people creates black supremacy. Equality is the truth. Were all in this together now? What was the somebody actually corrected? As, we do me, deleted it. Plenty it's like okay. I understand what you're saying a about. You know defeating white, supremacy. Without White, people. It, it's the it's the wording that was bothersome to me. Because what you're, what you're trying to do is make it seem like. We need to Big Massa. To defeat the white ciswomen to. Be Our else. We GonNA rise too high. Can you in that's not equal. Scroll up. one hundred and fifty thousand likes, and you see, and you know what I'm saying. This is the shit, and that's what I was like I. I responded to this and I said black people do not do this. This is not on message of what it's trying to be accomplished. I think it's important to. As I said the other day. If black people were gonNA fix this themselves. It would be fixed. White people need to get involved. White people need to solve this problem but saying. It's black supremacy of. White people. There's just doesn't make any set some old. It's an old thing to say. Like I've never I've literally never heard black supremacy ever in my life I've never gone to any rally or any council meeting or any townhall meeting in anybody. Walk up and be like the the goal is black. We are a complete deficit in that regard that if not fucking going to happen. That's not, but if you're saying, we need our our allies to be involved in order to fight white supremacy, because that is equality that I can tweet. I can agree with I agree with that, but you try to make it seem like it's this weird black people used you're you're making a she? Yeah, you're making it a fearful space you're making it seem like it's a fearful thing to. Come together, that's not. That's not the message at all. So I don't know I don't know what that man is on. All I know is when he came out during the me too movement. out! Getting grabbed because I was going to say Venus yourself know. Whitney GonNa say his balls being grabbed. black women were the ones that had his back. Black men were making fun of him. and. Show. Black, man, we're making fun of him you, can you big and black women were literally like no, it's wrong to that is also wrong. You know and so for you to turn around and do what you did to get real union. Yes, I'm saying it. It was wrong. Nobody asked you. Nobody asked you you didn't have to. You. Literally could have helped by just shutting the fuck. Oh just tweet her. In Solidarity! That's why I said in. It doesn't matter what the risk is for me in Hollywood space right now. I'm not letting Samantha where stand alone. In her experience, that's the if if we're going to be united in what it is that we say that grows traumatized. That was her first TV job. That was her first TV job. She still held trauma from it. She said that's where it came from was even even trying to be militias, but To see somebody. Hop on a movement. And then knowing as a black person, you treated me that way. And then to see you try and say the opposite. She was triggered and that not able to say something when it happened in literally couldn't. Literally and that's why I said. That's why I'm starting a neat knee. That is the whole it is A. It's black. Woman is black women Black Women started movement led movement. In our intention is to in black silence. our intention is to is to Look at my notes I. Now I WANNA. Make sure. that. I'm very clear. Have it to I'm have a mall here. Nominee I'm GONNA send you the new ones that we have okay. More clear message, but Hashtag U. N. Mute on mute. In and why which is does not mean a New York it. New York's loud and on the S I I put on mutiny because when you say, it sounds like you're saying a mutiny and that's what it is to to not be. Silent is to start a mutiny in this industry and It's a black woman. Funded led movement intended to. Silence in the entertainment industry. Hold Power Structure Structures accountable for suppressing black experiences. Like Samantha which people were really trying to do. And confront micro aggressions with courage, because microaggressions are Mike, grow their small in thousand cuts, and it's like. Am I going to choose my out to choose my battles, yes. And it seems like any creates an environment. Where racism is comfortable. Because, it's like I said. Racism has evolved as we have evolved. In. That is how it comes out. So that's the point of mutiny and I just wanted to be. Very clear about that message is not about people is not about a lynch mob. It's not about people coming out and just you know being reckless. With with the messaging, it's specifically. Right now in this phase. Everyone telling tell us our store. Tell us your store. put it in the Hashtag. Ally know that it is a safe space. And what is going to be done with your stories going to benefit you at the end and it's going to hold. These networks accountable which they should. To be held accountable, Semin Road I had a number of things happen during a play I was in, but one thing was that the director would always place me in the back of the theater cast me as a made during a song also had a classmate. Tell me during one run through that. My hair looked quote less crazy than usual i. read that one. It's the kind of thing where it's like I'm going to say when I complained. Now I'm the problem. Now what are the ramifications of protecting myself and standing up for myself now your motion exhausted. You're having to do more work at work. Because now you're gonNA. Be The difficult one. In networks and that's what I said listen. I'm very aware that what is I'm doing is probably going to get any blackballed, but what it is that her of that is fucked is but but you know what it's fine because I want to open up a door for my niece Tiana. Who tells me she wants to be me? She's she ten nine. She tenure. She's Ni-. Yeah, she's not. She's years old and she's like. Auntie I WANNA be you. I, just she. She's my. Biggest Fan and she has been since she was like three when she realized that I was on television. She's tha nine or ten. Does she have any concept of what's I? Think that her mom is figuring out figuring it out because she's already experienced something. Met Her School but I feel like there's that there's also that you want your kids to have the freedom to be themselves. But you want them to be protected. And it takes a little bit of the innocence away when you have to be honest about what the world really is for nine year old. but I do think that she understands because she you know. My sister had to facetime me, so she could see that. I was okay. In I had to explain to her. The reason aunties protesting in the reason Auntie is out here. Showing her face is because she wants to make a better world for you. Because, the world isn't good enough for you right now. So when you get older. It'd be better. 'cause we may not see what it is that we're trying to do. In our lifetime. I'm perfectly okay for that, but I needed to leave some kind of legacy so that they can continue on the fight so that we can eventually get there. So when my knees goes out for Hollywood parts, in has auditions in to play the lead who play the lead in? You know in his on a TV show or whatever she knows that she's in a safe environment. Because now is the norm. FOR RACISM TO BE BAD. It is a norm for microaggressions to not be accepted in front of anyone, and I have a group of black actor actresses actors. that I've spoken to about this that told their stories like Ryan destiny and Morgan and event Nicole Brown and like I said Samantha Wear and Robin The'd like I have all of these people. that have had pets thousands of stories that we've exchange that are committing. To what it is and I'm I'm trying to do so. It's GonNa. It's GonNa happen because their power numbers knows and is coming from a place. It's not coming from a place with making people feel bad but correction. Correction isn't isn't always you know coming from an evil space. Yeah, correction is good for you, too. Yes, yes, yes, yes, and I think the onus is on us to knock it defensive to not no one wants to be wrong. Some people do want to be racist, but. Some people don't WanNa. Be You know you don't want to be wrong? And you're like I haven't been mean to anyone. It's not about what you haven't done this point and what your intentions are as we said like you know, and I just WanNa, be super open, and hopefully maybe settings. Please crack me till I. Should've said that I'm so sorry. I'm sorry. Just say I'm sorry when you fuck up, you know create a space where people feel comfortable correcting you and don't make it about your emotions and don't. Don't make it about your ego and don't make it about your I have a black friend, dated a black guy, and whatever fucking Shit that I'm getting a lot of texts about right now. you know what I mean. Yeah, and and see yourself when you're ego comes out you know when someone says you have white privilege or someone says that made me uncomfortable. No one your bad person unless you're being about person like if it's like you said well intentioned and your teachable in this moment like receive that. People that are posting the black squares. It's like they wanted get all the cloud, but they don't actually want to receive feedback and I think it's important we. Allow ourselves to be open to that, and it's so funny, because even the blackout. The blackout Tuesday thing was co-opted how there were two black women in the industry that Saddam. And it was I. Started to highlight. Black businesses. With, the blackout Tuesday was supposed to be well then Britney posted. If you're black, do not Joe. And don't we all were like? Do Not Post. Black lives matter underneath. Oh, because if you do have shaggy Elim, it's drowning out all of the information and the people that actually need to be heard your performance of activism. Your Trendy Activism. People just silencing black people voice it art it and like it. Co opted into something else and I was like it wasn't even supposed to be this black. Suv Square Shit. Part apart like before the music industry girls got ahead ahead of it was to black girls, and it was a pause a pause in. Or something I forget what specific Hashtag was, but a pause and interest. Oh! Stop the show Hashtag shops show, and it was supposed to be for us to take a moment in like amplified talking about a black business that you. Talk about something. Like that like that's what it was supposed to be about. It was supposed to be about you not posting about yourself. And and and highlighting. Barbara yes, no! So many people black friends. Only were posing their black brandon. You're Sylvia's guys. You're the. Brandon, Goodman as well, he's giving some etiquette tips here on how to behave right now. I'm just going to let you respond back maybe this. About my last week, which was basically stop checking in on your black friends. You will notice that checking in is in quotes, which is to signify that it's not a genuine check at that. It's more of something that is. From your guilt, and your shame of whatever oppressive behavior you subjected that black friend to especially if it's a black print that you're not in regular communication with somebody that you were like who are the lifeblood, my life, you might have noticed that you don't have any, but there's that guy some talk to in high school or that guy used to talk to.

Talking about. Which? We talked about because he hated. Please stop checking in on your black friends. Who you haven't spoken to in months. Let alone here. Don't use us to feel better or absolve yourself from whatever oppressive behavior. You may have subjected us to in the past. Do your work better leave us out of it? Yeah like my. Convinces. That's what you guys need to take away from it not that you can't talk to your friends about things that are happening now, but come with information. I don't want to teach you. There are enough ballo Britney pod. Save, the people I'd say that the people. So Good Harold Brown follower she'll.

I went on a date with the white guy and one of the first things out of his mouth were. Was Also you know, what is your mom? Do all you have my mom's in you know Terry decorator. She's minister. She sit planner. She's really good and my dad, Oh, you know your dad. So that kind of put a little bit of a stop. To that. For me I said. Yes I. Know My father. Ono that's that's not what I meant. I just meant. We were talking about your mom. And then you brought your dad into it and I was like. Yeah. Okay and they continued because I. Do not reject free food. And told me lose number. Meanwhile I didn't. Know. What else does the restaurant? Data is a strong term. Strong turn. He's different I I grew up with a lot of white boys. I went on. I grew up in thousand oaks. So. Point, zero one percent black, so that was really fun for me. Can you tell them the story? We have time for her to tell the story of your documentary of what it was like being black as your senior project. I for my senior project is a lot of schools. They make you do senior projects so my teacher love documentaries, so we watched blackfish in super size me all kinds of documentaries a whole year, so she was like. The second semester we're going to start working on a documentary. So I was throwing her I literally wrote in my notebook the first day that she does like to write about being blocked thousand oaks like I think it's a good topic. So I got my group. We had questions and I was very thorough because I was like. This means something to me. I'M GONNA. Take this very seriously. So I, interviewed the youngest person I interviewed at the time was my niece, and she was eight, and the oldest person I interviewed, was one of my aunts, and she was in her fifties, and so I had different skin tones, people that have lived in thousand oaks, their whole life for his people that come from other places versus boys and girls in all kinds of different stuff because I really wanted to get the full gamut of what it's like and I. I present my project by teachers in tears. It was great, and I'm like sitting here and I'm cheese like you weren't in the documentary. What are your feelings I said it's horrible having to represent my entire race at every second of every hour of every day and being eighteen like I've been doing this since I was five like I. Always have to be on my, PS and QS and I had boys in the back of my class like laughing at her. She's so dramatic Oh. My Gosh, this is this is crap. And they're like laughing because they think it's funny. I'm like Oh, so my genuine experiences are funny to you. Because in your world I'm dramatic or loud and noisy and obnoxious, and I can't be loud in for taking up too much space I'm taking up too much space. I can't be loud because I'm an extrovert. Have to be loud because I'm black I can't like surf music because I liked the way it sounds like it because it's a black artist, or I can identify with people look like me, because then I'm reverse racist. It was Dade tried everything in the book, and I was like okay. Noted got it. I'm sorry. Let me let me be quiet. So the the argument that racism will die with a certain generation. She's agency. That is absolute bullshit. The idea is still being a lot of people are getting better. It's getting quieter. Shit. It's getting quieter. underhanded. Kit Is. It's getting. It's getting quieter. They're taking. Third he at least he posted this. The racism is getting worse. It's just getting filmed. Gaza! and. It took people seeing black pain in black death in us being traumatized by going I. Accidentally saw what happened to Ahmad Robbery. Santa's I'm like what is. This would've caught him. It was on my my time. Line I clicked on and I was like what is going on. What is struck doing like? You know and in my mind when I saw them fighting, I couldn't now at this point. I couldn't stop watching. And then I just see him. Get Shot, and you know what the worst part is. I thought that the man that was recording, it was recording. In defense of Ahmad Aubrey. He got in his car and blocked him in. So, he was also charged. So like I. Think that that was. You know what I'm saying is like lead Oh. At least somebody you know went in. No, you recorded that Shit for sport. Not Protection! So bad idea. That it's getting better with time that there's progress. There is no progress until it is recognized by our president. There is no progress into recognized by our leaders in government. or to the same sentiment the fact that We Discount People's ages. Yeah, we discount like the little girl, the girl that was telling her parents off Oh. You're young. You don't know anything. I, I hate that We feel as though whether you're young, black person or a young white person or whoever I feel like a lot of times whatever they're saying. It's discounted because of their age. Oh you don't know what you're talking about. You like like Guy said Oh. RACISM IS GONNA die out when all the old people die out like. You learn that black president. Yeah can I ask you? What are some shows that you feel like capture the black experience and authentic truthful way that people should watch. I always be I. Love a different world. Old Go old and I'm an old soul. I feel as though I was having an argument the other day about this I feel as though eight explains the full gammit at least made, because it's my age group, but the full gamut of what it's like to have to Ha- be an educated person because we're not all just thugs. We're not all out like for the most we're not. We're just out here trying to live our lives so having to even in a black college setting experienced racism I, those great I also personally love blackish and grown ish. I feel like they touch on a lot of stuff, and they do it in a way that's palatable, so it's not directly in your face, but like a lot of because Oh and ours was to be the same age a lot of what Zoe's gone through I I personally have gone through it. I personally have gone through exactly what amber was saying because I? Speak properly or eloquently I've had teachers. Look at me twice and be like. Oh! This. This one's different I. Hate that sentence. This one's different. The amount of times I've heard that. It's. The first time I'd the teachers added. Tomato was in third grade. Eight. And to hear a teacher go. Oh, you're different this one this one so automatically. The entire rest of my raises bad but me. I'm fine because I grew up around white people. I'm texting your mom right now. Oh. Proudest Book Right now. I can't even. I can't even talk you like if you ever need. A Gen Z. corresponded this right here. This, is it also like? Yeah, I think it's important to know your limitations. It I don't love and bidding I have limitations. Just you know some things that. I don't know how I can understand unless we give you the microphone unless we you make a documentary unless you make a TV show, you know sort of like you can't stop. Educate every person. You don't have that kind of time, so we just need to figure out a way to like and I like. This is making steps in like we appreciate it because it's like some of us have voices and we know what we want to say, but we don't know exactly how to save them Or if it's right for us to say them. Because like I said people discount because of your age, or because of what you've experienced or where you've grown up, so it's like. Where am I supposed to say what I have to say or like? Where do I? Fit into the puzzle because you see the numbers and the people in the Kendricks out here like okay, see that, but that's not my path like. How do I figure out where I fit into the whole? Hodgepodge Ivy your point is right like I. Even have had to learn like. I can't educate everyone 'cause. My stance has always been paid maybe. Listen. I'm not against. My. My thought process has always been. I was fortunate enough to be put around people that instilled in me from a very young age. Your Voice Matters? And you have a responsibility and they always tell me not. Everybody's bad. Some dealers on educated. Thank you which is the thing that I always tried to? I was trying to come at from like 'cause like amber, I almost teacher, so I taught fifth and sixth grade so I get not everybody. He doesn't click for everybody all at the same time, so like for me. There's people are like. Why are you still talking to them? Why are you trying to help them? You've been talking to for four days now and I'm like okay, but I think I'm almost getting to the clicking point, but I also realize like I can't. I can't run into the I'm low, and now because I've spent so much time trying to explain it to you the next person that asked me I'm GonNa snap on them. Because I'm tired dre. Well I could I could I can't ask you for any more. Thank you for inviting me. I really appreciate you like personally reaching out to me that a lot it was. I was so nervous to reach out. Refer to you because I was just like I do not want fucking. Make her do what she's doing enough. But a lot of people listen this. I feel bad yeah. Yeah, they do. Racking in. Oh yes. Anything else you WANNA. Yeah! I just WanNa talk about a mutiny again in just encourage you know every single black creative in the entertainment space to use that Hash.

Head there right now as you're listening to this podcast or check it out later whatever you wish, obviously the last two podcasts that we did a little bit different than our usual episodes You know it's still a really hard time in the world right now. You know there's not that many exciting fun things going on. It's actually a lot of sad things and things that needed to come to light and people. You know it was. I feel like it's been a big. Thing for a lot of people in in a good way. See that you know we all become more educated and learn how to go forward but you know it's. It's something where it's like. Things can't go back to normal. Because what was normal was good right now. Just about going forward doing what we talked about donating signing petitions voting doing everything we've talked about you. Know we we. WanNa be a distraction for everybody and give you guys a lighthearted. Fun podcast like usually would about celebrities doing whatever it is that they do, but right now celebrities are focused on what's going on in the world. Yeah, we're. We are focused on it as well. There's obviously so much to consume much to learn so much to read. It's really it's hard to. Stay off social media. Kind of Nazi everything that's been going on. It's been a lot so I think that the way that we are going to continue to continue. The show is to keep all that in mind obviously. Celebrities are very involved right now. They're subra voicing their opinions. They're celebrities finding about it. There's it's it's really. The only thing that's. Happening with them is because they are just as focused on this movement as We are and it's great to see because I think it is actually shown a lot of people getting involved who have gone volved in the past, so that right there is is great and. There's just like I said. There's just so much more to learn and listened to and just to keep moving forward so all all I'll say is. I just hope everybody continues to read and watch and listen and learn and on top of that so. Do your research on things like if you see things on social media and you're like. Wow, that seems interesting. Are All I WANNA learn more about that. Do it rebounding search search these you know certain just. Gone Google is Google these things and learn about it in educate yourself. You'll just. Be Able to have these conversations and ask people and learn more I. Think like you know obviously. There's a lot of stuff going around on social media sharing the same stuff. But you know I I've seen this a lot and I will take. It probably has. A lot to do with the show in Enron, myself is just nick. Vile had reposted it, but I'm I'm just GonNa read it because it just says. I am privileged. I am imperfect. I have a lot to I'm willing to learn unlearn. I might make mistakes on the way I will apologize, and of course correct, but I will keep trying, and I think that just shows because like. With. Two of us are not perfect. We are really trying to educate ourselves in. Learn more about what's going on and speak about it in the best way that we can, and we're just GONNA continue to do that end. Try our best and hope everybody. Does that along with us. Yeah, I agree with everything Fran said, but I also want to. You know remind everyone that. We will continue to do our normal pop culture show as time allows it. You know like this episode is go. A lot of topics are going to be based on what's happening in the world because we want to talk about celebrities because that's guys. Come here for and like we said, this is what celebrities are doing so. That's what the episode will primarily be about now as. Once again, I don't WanNa say as things go back to normal because that's not it. That's not what should be happening. It's more or less like you know. People keep saying this isn't a trending topic. Which is true, it's just something we need to remind ourselves every day in our daily life, go forward with it but also continued to do our show in a way. That's fun for people to listen to, and you guys can come to us. You know as a distraction, but you know from time and time again. We're going to remind you have these things because. Because we don't WanNa just be the people who talks about it and then forget about it so anything else friend that you would like to add no I think. That's I. think that's about it. Oh I wanted to say that. I reached on Instagram I finally reached the end of my instagram like I got to a point where my instagram said. You are all caught up on everything from the last three days. Every new post I have never seen that before my life I have a single holy authority right now. I have a screen shot of it. Damn. That is a lot of time. Yeah. alcott up. You've seen all new post from the past few days. Wow, yes! Sir as is quite a compliment so as much as it is. You know good to go on media. Get the information that you need so that you. Can. You know you read something like? Go Google research it after. Don't just is a reminder to myself as well. Don't just sit on social media. It's not the only place where you can help and do things as much as it does. Help as well once to reach the point where you've seen all posts that you can. Take it somewhere else. Yes, reminder to me, it is. It's tough because we've seen a lot of people also obviously acknowledge their privileged that like this is something that we can. learn about social media, but then put our phone down and continue on with with other things and right. There is just a privilege itself that we are able to do that because we are not black so that you know we're. We're not living with it, so it's crazy because there has been this just absolute desire to constantly see what's going on I. Mean Social Media has been has been non non stop because people have been sharing and telling their stories and posting learning, which is great, because there's so many great resources out there now on, people are sharing so many great things black on businesses in in places to go shop at all these amazing things. And on top of that just showing sports signing petitions. Writing emails to your to your local government. At all those amazing things, but it's. It's. It's a lot so to consume a lot of that then. Sometimes you just got A. One. Point. Were you get the notification that you've seen every post that you can yeah for the last two days at the lot? I think that I think you're allowed to put down your phone for just a little bit. Yes? You know that doesn't mean. Stop Educating Yourself. There just needs find rider place besides right there. Yes, there are plenty of other. Plenty of other outlets and things to do so. Yeah, I think that's that's what I wanted to say. Right I'm good all right, so let's get into the topic for today's episode We have Leah Michelle. Who you know it's hard to focus on one thing that she's doing wrong. At the moment because there is a whole list of people who have a problem with Michelle Sabrina get right into that We have Garett from the BACHELORETTE. Verbs Becca Martinez from the Bachelor because of some posts that guard has made on social media. We have Vanessa. Morgan from riverdale talking about her experience as a black woman on the show we also watched thirteenth on Netflix so we'll talk about that and Just you know I know that. This doesn't go along with the episode, but we're GONNA. Talk about the challenge. We know people want to hear about the challenge, so we're going to talk about it Let's get into starting off with Michelle. His me. and. Gone Up. By. Liam Michelle is facing a ton of backlash this week from multiple different people after she tweeted about the death of George Floyd her Glee Co Star Samantha where Re tweeted and started this movement against Liam Michelle at this point in time. Yeah, I feel like with Leeann Michelle. We were just waiting for the shoe to drop the other shoe to drop right Burgess, waiting for somebody to say something, and then it just became a snowball fact everyone was like. Oh, we're telling our lay. Michelle stories I've got one. Yup, just it just has gone on for. Basically last week at this point. So Samantha Re tweeted. Remember when you may my first television gig on a living hell I'll never forget it i. believe you told everyone you. If you had the opportunity, you would shit in my wig. Amongst other traumatic microaggressions that made me question a career in Hollywood. So that was. The first thing now said. What a lot of other things have been said. And, then it was just everybody else really obviously jumping on and saying their experiences with leave Michelle. I do not know if I'm saying this guy's name correctly I'm probably not DAB DAB Ebay he was. So on Glee as well and he retrieves a girl. You wouldn't let me sit at the table with the other cast members because I didn't belong there Fuck you Leah and. It really just continued on Amber Riley. While this was going on had just tweeted a Gif of her sipping tea like it was of herself. Seven was like ooh. What's going on there? She later talked about obviously obviously more of it, but then. It went online. It got worse because Lia had put out an apology. On her instagram and People like that also didn't really sit well people because like she didn't really apologize. For anything she just reward. What she said she said one of the most important lessons the last few weeks is that we need to take the time to listen and learn about other people's perspectives at any role. We have played or anything we can do to help address the injustices that they face. When I tweeted the other day, it was meant to be a show of support for our friends and neighbors in communities of color during this really difficult time, but the responses. I received what I posted have made me also focused specifically on how my oh behavior, towards fellow cast members was perceived by them. While I, don't remember ever making the specific statement and I have never judged others by their background or color of their skin. That's not really the point. What matters is that? I clearly acted in ways which hurt other people whether it was my privileged position in perspective that caused me to be perceived as insensitive or inappropriate at times, or whether it's just my immaturity and me just being unnecessarily difficult. I, apologize for my behavior and. For any pain I have caused. We can all grow and change I have definitely use these past for months to reflect on my shortcomings, I have a couple of months from becoming a mother and I know I need to keep He'd be better myself. Take responsibility for my actions that I can be a real role model for my child, and so I can pass along my lessons mistakes so that they can learn from me I. listened to these criticisms I am learning while. I'm very sorry. I will be better in the future from this experience. So she put out that apology. hellofresh said they were no longer going to to work with her and then more Gli. co-stars came out other people that have worked with her on different shows. Just seem pretty all over. This is something Ama-. Riley said she said I'm not going to say that. The Michelle is racist. That's not what I'm saying. That was the assumption because of what's going. On right now in the world and happened towards a black person. I'm not going to say that she's racist. She's also pregnant. I think that everyone needs to chill. y'All dragged her for a couple of days, but at the same time in my inbox there are a lot of black actors and actresses, telling me their stories and letting me know the have dealt with the same things. Onset being terrorized on the white pros there leads up their show. Yeah so! Liam Michelle. I think Michelle is just a bad person. I think I think we just got a call it what it is. An issue. Just add purchase an asshole to everyone in. Every way that all around we in Michele's just just. Been Yes, she just hasn't been aware of human being like she's just. Being mean her entire life acting like a diva, and not to throw our own experiences in there, but I'll say at one time for the people who do recall on this show Liam Michele wants canceled an interview with us right in front of our face while we were standing in front of right. And it was done in a very rude manner end. When land occurred, we were told by other people in Syria said, it was not the first time. Something like this has happened right we. We showed up too serious to interview Shell. She standing right there and then contacts. Our Talent Booker Right to say that she. Should. Generals per people contact candidates gotten for the day standing right there. We just tell us you want us to interview interview and it and it wasn't even us. It was like multiple shows is yes like I that you know whatever and ever everybody has bad days. That is for sure you know what unhappy she wasn't on our show how? Young everything how she's been to settle every for sure, everybody has their bad days, but clearly from what it seems like. This, many people who have had bad experiences with her end and you hope that. Maybe you've been blind being that much of an asshole. Nobody's nobody's said straight your face all these years much of an asshole you are, and maybe this is what it what it'll take for her to be like damn. I was an asshole. Maybe I shouldn't be such a hassle as a record amount of assholes that I just. Kinda crazy though like I'll just add onto your asshole trains yet how you can be asshole. There's so many people never realize it right about the amount of people we have also said could be yes selfish to people so far that have gone after Lieber Shell, there's a whole list. We haven't even touched on everybody. Who's got after the show? You, go to her comments. Everybody's got a story about her so I I mean I hope that this is just a really huge wake up. Call for Awfully Michelle, because my God has seen credit so like Heather Morris obviously another one from Glee said let me be very clear. Hate is a disease in America that we are trying to share so I never wish for hate to be spread to anyone else with that said. was she unpleasant to work with? With very much, so related to treat others with disrespect that you did for Zombie, she did I believe she should be called out. And yes, it's also on us because to allow to go on for so long without speaking out something else for learning along with the rest of society at the current moment. It's implied that she is a racist in although I cannot comment on her beliefs, I think we're assuming a know what happened when we all is still. Yeah that was you know that was something my fifth grade teacher. Board and it's one of the only things that I really remember from fifth grade. When you assume it makes asset. Munich yeah, and we were all like because we're in fifth grade and it was school and she. WROTE ASS instead. Ask Out loud. She wrote a huge letters and the line after ass in the line. After you make ask at. We were all only. That's relate so, but how is right because it's such a weird? Like such a weird time for all this to be happening against Michelle but I also like clearly people have. Bad feelings towards her to bring this up. While, this is all going on. There's also people from Broadway who worked with charged this Gerard. Got Him, probably butchering always poor people's Kenneka can cannot go. But do you think? Aniko. To, GET OUT, Redick! Yeah! He worked as an understudy. For Spring Awakening and she had originally comments. things that have been deleted, so he wrote again seems to have been deleted, so I'll try again. You are nothing but a nightmare to me. In fellow understudy cast members. You made us feel like we didn't belong there. I tried for years to be nice to you to no avail. Maybe actually apologized instead of place in the blame on how others perceive you. You'll probably just delete this though. and. Obviously A. And then when people were liking things, replying back to things. Event Nicole, Brown, who is on the mayor with? Lee Michelle responded to Samantha Wears tweet. I felt everyone of those capital letters, every person on a set matters every person on his sentence serves respects as the responsibility of every series regular to make every person who visits their home. Feel welcome. This dismissive attitude is what's wrong in Hollywood and the world and then. Like other people were just liking stuff, which obviously does. Not Putting out statements but. A supporting other people who are speaking out and You know Alex Newell who is on Glee as well. Responded to many twitter users who were commenting. We ain't got no not a damn thing to lie about six years later you wrote to one. Posing a bunch of gifts and stuff reacting to. Samantha's tweet need also tweeted I'm GonNa say this one time when my friends go go when my friends goes through something dramatic. I also threaten. Nasir friendship is if you can't understand that and you part of the problem, and that's on periods and I mean that for both sides of the coin. And Abigail, Breslin slid in there to liking some tweets. shoutouts abacus restaurant honestly haven't heard that name in years. Yes, yes, Abigail. Breslin was on scream queens with Leah, and she liked to tweet that, said not everyone agreeing something felt off about leave Michelle where have you all been? I've been saying this for years. I thought it was alone. So she liked that, tweet an exclusive producer. Mardi knocks. She tweeted out like. Yes. Maybe there are some problems. Go like no one talks about the male actors ugly they were. There's also some really bad male actors. which I feel like people have definitely discussed to some extent, but I guess not as intense is this. Who would have thought glee was so problematic I've never watched glee. really came fans a guess of anyone on the show that much walked but I didn't know that there was this much drama behind the US. Definitely for sure I mean Jordan. PRUITT came out and said something you know people edge just like a known thing in industry these rumors about her. And then the transgender actress and singer plastic martyr also talked about an experience that she had with Leah. At the Emmy awards which you know she. And she said you know look I'm not here for A. Canceled culture or anything like that, but she said she's very unpleasant. Person years ago, we were at the EMMYS and she happened to be there. I was still in the process of my transition. I wasn't one hundred percent as passable. Then I was in the bathroom, and starting washing my hands, and said excuse me to her when trying to reach soak, and she goes. Excuse me. Excuse me, excuse you. You realize you're in the women's bathroom. I remember going feelings so beautiful that day to walking out of the bathroom. Self conscious embarrassed. And she had written off. She also wrote like this was my experience with her. It isn't to start or Kansas someone's career. It is to hopefully open people's eyes up to their horrible transphobia that exists, but no one really talks about. The press doesn't cover transgender stories or trans people are experiences often go? Trans people aren't the enemy. We aren't the punchline your jokes does. The rest of the world tries to silence as it's our job, voices and shake ours shared stories and experiences. Hopefully one day soon people will start to understand respect transpeople, instead of Dylan is or mocking us. And obviously. Every time like a spokesperson are sourcres said like Lee has response this was. A source. said that she has absolutely no recollection of that ever happening and was greatly upset to hear this, and she would never have intentionally singled her out. She has been a huge fan to LGBT. Community starting from when she was on Broadway age eight, so I feel like the stories. You're outlier Michelle like we're watching. Girls and you watch that movie and you think Oh. Nobody can really act like Tina George. That's just a character. Michelle Realize Regina George like there actually are really mean people out there like her out there and you just don't realize it. YEA, Oh, Shit! We Michelle has a lot a lot of apologizing to do. Going forward. She's got a lot of people who make up to you. She probably doesn't even know how many people she has to make it up to at this point, right? At this point, she's completely off the rails at this point. In its and it sucks because obviously. She like like amber had pointed out as well you know she is. She's at in her apology in she is. She's pregnant right now, and this is I'm sure very stressful, but.

Garrett who is currently engaged to Becca coupon from the Bachelorette is currently facing some backlash after some of his social media posts over the weekend, a Beca Martinez, another member of the Bachelor Nation Franchise, that's not just the bachelor franchise on on now mixing Bachelor Nutrition and the bathroom franchise together, but just a you know somebody from the Bachelor Franchise who we've seen be very very vocal. In Times where people need to speak up, I actually give back a lot of credit because she she takes no shit. She writes up for what she believes in and I love it, and in this instance. She did it again with Garrett. So Garrett posted a instagram in support of. The Thin Blue Line, which is a phrase used in association with Blue Lives. Matter and He wrote a very lengthy and scrammed posed about his. Support for the police yawn just read some of bit. He said it's important for me to recognize the ones who stand in the gap and put their lives on the line, each and every single day for humans of different race nets the end ethnicity including those who hate them. The table line represents each officer protecting protesters properties of businesses while being threatened attack shot at shot shot at here with vehicles and other forms of brutality He then said. We can't judge an entire group of people by the actions of a few we can't judge the peaceful protesters by the actions of the violent protesters, and we share can't judge all cops by the actions of a few bad ones remember when they put on the bachelor. Still humans with raw emotion, the more brutality face more on edge they become. They make mistakes. They have compassion in no matter how terrible they are treated, or whatever negative is said to them. They still show up for us when we need them. So obviously right away. You see that and it's like you know that that's going to be. Controversial you know that people are gonNA be upset. People commenting in support. People commenting very upset back Martinez, commented, saying a law enforcement chooses to put on a blue uniform. Black people don't choose to be black. Big Difference. Also quote the more brutality face. They face the more on edge. They become that scariest Wow, wow, wow, so interesting that you stay silent about black lives, but you just have to speak out about cops. You made your views known before, and here's a great reminder that not much has changed and then it's. got a little. It got a little petty off from side like if view if you're GONNA post that you're GONNA have to. I feel like accept the criticism. You're posing that in the middle of a massive movement. Bach Lives Matter Movement And he he's screen shot and put on a story and wrote. I remember you saying how much you love me to Becca. And you made a mistake for judging me in the past without knowing me needless to say, you never got to know me. Still don't know me and you're no longer invited over piece. Okay. Garrett I mean that that response to me is just ridiculous because. BECCA doesn't have to get to know you as a person, yeah. That doesn't take away from what you post it. My sure becca still got to know Garrett as. So that post. She would say exactly what she felt right. You know not not getting to know Garrett doesn't. Mean anything in this sense right he's. He's letting everyone know who he is by by posting. Garrett also said. I was advised to not post by capture with my black square as I have written a message about peace racism in change because I believe black lives matters important I. Still got ridiculed, also showing my love and support for others at this time as well and still get ridiculed doesn't make me a racist, nor does it take away from black lives matter. Try having conversations with people before judging labeling love to all. Personally like my opinion on on that is just like saying my my. Pose like doesn't take away anything from black lives, matter. That's exactly what. One, hundred. That's that's exactly what you're doing. you're shifting the focus on something. That's not black. Lives matter so I feel like that's the kind of ridiculous thing to say right when. It when blackout Tuesday happened. You know it's still I. DON'T I? Don't WanNA. Get into the facts of if you were supposed to post the Black Square Oriane. We're not supposed to black postbox square because I think everyone was confused what it meant it was you know silenced everything else like silence yourself, silence your Tiktok, your other content, but still shed light on what matters so you know when we when people are making that the point of blackout Tuesday in the new. Go Out of your way to them. Post a black square with the lining it. You are now going on your way right which is. You he's trying to. He tried to play ball of the ASS because he doesn't want to offend somebody or make somebody upset, but at the day that he has a lot of friends and family that are cops and I'm sure I'm sure he is very torn, but it's just like when you step out right when you when you now go out of your way to post the box with the Blue Line. Line you are stepping out of the movement, right if that if I know I, think it does I think it does end. You know. BECCA had post here. He posted another screen shot of his damn back back back on responded, said L. Mayo. Definitely not my words I said Tell Garrett I'm sorry. I gave him so much shit at the time I meant to because I thought you actually cared about changing. Then Garrett wrote. What is wrong with supporting block lives end cops at the same time I have grown in become more educated in the past two years. If you sang by me, posting that sporting everyone is unchanged. What about you jumping to conclusions? Running your thumbs on my page again has changed It's just I. Don't think that. Garrett, he saying that he is reading educating himself, but. If, he is reading educated. Learning and learning about black lives matter. Really where that came from what it stands for? You wouldn't say like. Why can't I support both like because that's not? Really. Wear black lives matters started in the first place was to. Showcase what is going on with the black community and police, so it's it's. It's tough, and obviously now it puts Becca his fiancee in the mix of all this as well because. She has she has her own opinions. Beck on her instagram stories said that she's having many conversations behind the scenes and wrote because I'm silent on my g right now it doesn't mean on style in my life. And she said that they would be talking about it. On the next episode of Bashar Happy Hour with Rachel Enzi. And see what that I'm there I? Would I'm very? Very intrigued to listen to Tau echoes, Yeah I. Feel like Becca is in. A tough position right now, as is probably many other people who live with somebody that they don't agree on everything that's that's happening in. You are your own person. You have your own values. You have your own opinions in. You're not always gonNA. Agree with other people when that person is going to your gauge to and you're going to marry that person Probably to right figure it out. They don't follow their side for this situation. It's. Especially when so many people are going to come after him and then they're going to include you in what they think about him, but you have your own values. It's bright it, I. Don't know how to feel for for Becca us very moment. completely honest like and I'm sure she has many friends in the franchise that feel the same way as Becca Martinez does. Yeah, and they're like will now. How do we hang out with you, but we don't agree with Garrett but as an hour. We're GONNA fight with him. What's what's GonNa Happen here? Yeah, and it sucks because. Obviously, we've had this conversation to where you know. You don't want to put. That pressure on black. People Outta have the job to educate all other people, so it's like Rachel Lindsay? Who is so great like now it's it's also puts her in a very difficult position. Because now. She has to talk about this on her own podcast. Because this is her co-hosts, fiance one a so all around pretty pretty crazy and I will say an. It's tough because the bachelor it so hard and. You see you know. Hannah, Brown has been posting a lot and she's been posting a lot of resources and it seems like she is trying to educate herself. So but the, but then there's people like. Unfortunately I saw grocery store Joe who I guess. People Are Free Doug Ducey Light Garrett's posts or something like that. And he had just said. I got this I know I have a platform, but I got this platform from reality. Show about dating like. I'm not an expert. On any of those those things you shouldn't be coming to me for those reasons I'm going to continue to post about food. You know and an. Eye Torn on that because. That's fair. He's being honest like he doesn't really. He doesn't really know enough to be posting about it. But I just think like you been given that platform, yes, from a dating show from a reality TV show. and. It's just crazy me to have that platform and not like one to learn right. I think the exactly I think that's something. I took out of the conversation with Nina Parker as well as like you know. When we were trying to figure out how we wanted to talk about these things, it's like okay, we're. We're pop culture show. People don't really come to us about these issues, but we have a platform where many people are listening. Yeah, we want to help spread the word. We want to educate ourselves. We WanNA educate other people. Why not use? Our platform followers, you know. It's hard to. It's very. I think it's it goes along with every with what everyone's saying is. Ask Yourself. Why are you saying silent? It's because you're you don't think you're educated enough then if you don't think you're. Then than? You Educate Yourself. And then maybe even post that say hey, I'm I'm GonNa Start Learning because clearly. Enough about this to post about it but I. I want I want WanNa start stumped like That is I feel definitely a lot of what needed said. Starts starts somewhere and. Build you know build on it? Learn from it. I think even like if you just knowledge, will he? You know he did acknowledge all. Hey, I'm not I. You know I was given this platform firmer from a dating reality show I'm not supposed to talk about these things. But then go on to say, but I will educate myself I will. Do you know what I mean like it? Just it didn't feel like. That necessarily that he felt passionate about doing that right and also I think this says something. When when Joe posted his blackout Tuesday Square Kendall commented happy to see this with a like heart. Emoji which makes me think that Kendall was. Slightly surprised to see him do that. which probably isn't a good thing? You Know Right which which? I won't say that. It's a bad thing because obviously if he felt that like. You WanNa show where you stand. That's why people are posting you WanNa. Show where you where you stand on the issue. But we I makes me think like. Do you! Were you just throwing that out there? Because everybody else was yeah I think I think there's many ways to think about it. you know, try to see the good people and this is just you know who knows if this was the conversation, but we. We don't know what kind of conversations these people's these people have. But maybe Joe had a conversation kinda where he was like I wanNA help, but I don't know where to start. And she was like well. Yeah posts. Were you stay? And and then he posted worry stand. He stood then. Kendall's like I'm happy to see this so we don't know what kind of conversations they're having behind. Closed Doors. I don't think that every person from Bachelor nation is going to be the voice that you need to hear no. Whatever it is but I. do think when you have following like. We said you know even if one person listens to what you said, it's a good day so. that. Something we need to remember you know besides a few. I think that Rachel Lindsay is somebody who has always been somebody to look up to 'em. Listen to what she's saying because she's always spoke the truth and has never been held back. Oh, almonds the beginning of her being xactly like these people you know. We just got to remember. They're not not our role models. Yeah, yeah, yeah! That is true and you know. Dylan had tweeted something this weekend that I. Think also shows a lot about the bachelor end- and everything that goes with the bachelor. You just said losing followers on twitter and instagram because I'm speaking rational thoughts is showing me so much about the platform that was provided to me. and. I've seen what Dylan. Posted Dylan hasn't posted anything. That's been you know that. Again been over the posing a ton of stuff like you said posting rational thoughts, and in his mind the rational, but clearly if you know that's not the case for people who are on following and whatnot but the. Talk slight dig at the Bachelor. Core Fan is see I mean. We've talked about it like if you're on following. If people on is properly good thing I. don't want those people following you anyway. So, it's GonNa. Be It'll be interesting to see how. This show happens with. BECCA, will it'll this episode that they're GonNa? Do with Becca and Rachel and how they discuss this. Discuss this situation result. Will Garrett make an appearance? I don't know, but it's I guarantee. We'll get torn apart by Rato Wednesay if he gets on that podcast, and maybe maybe that's what he needs. Maybe he does need a little ripping into from Rachel Lindsay to. Become aware of the situation. Yeah, somebody said rip to to him, and like we said like I. Don't WanNa. Make it seem like it's only up to black people to educate other people because I'm sure Rachel. Lindsay has been putting in the work all week. She's tired but it is her podcast so. Yet it's just obviously it continues. This is the conversation that people are continuing to have when people have become are speaking about it on social media and. It's just. I I just feel like especially with people from the bachelor. You just gotTa when they post it. Be like all right that person. They think that way. That's I don't agree with them. You know and maybe that's the last time you pay attention to anything they ever say. Follow. Go to? They, look! I think people show vague. Stomach. Only.

Vanessa more spoke out this week about her role on Riverdale If you watch Riverdale, you know that Vanessa Morgan plays Tony Topaz. ed, she posted. Saying that she is tired of how black people are portrayed in media, tired of us being portrayed as thugs, dangerous or angry, scary people tired of us being used as sidekick, non dimensional characters to our white leads are only used in the ads for diversity, but not actually in the show. And you know. It's it says a lot about her character. Which I think is very fair because she. After I would say like Vanessa Morgan's character. was bumped up from recurring regular beginning with riverdale third season, but she has only been. Cheryl blossoms like love interests like they never really gave her kind of own background her own story. They've just kind of had this romance She also. said that you know my role on. Riverdale has nothing to do with my fellow classmates friends. They don't write the show so no need to attack them. They don't call the shots. I know they have my back. She also said that she is the only black series regular, but also paid the least amount of money she also you know resit garlic gone for days replying to someone and you know there has been support Lily reinhart like Rebecca. We Love You and support you ten thousand percent. and. It's just I opening because you don't. End! We have to come. We have tabby discussions because. I watching the show had not even really ever thought about that until now she puts it out I think about all the episodes I watch on like wow, that is, that is so true. Shame on me for not noticing that in shame on her, you know the writers around may change, but now she is taking since speaking out. Yeah, I've never watched riverdell. So I don't exactly know her character or the other you know. I know who's on the show, but I don't really know the dynamic of the show, but I think what I'm realizing in this. Is like the most important thing that we can do is listen and learn because you're right. This is a very eye opening thing. I would have never known this night. I don't even think I would have thought this can help you just or not. You don't realize what goes on behind the scenes of shows like this that it just has been happening since the beginning of time, and you know it's why we're educating ourselves in why we're telling other people to educate themselves, because this is something that these people have been having to deal with and we just we just didn't know about it, and it's yes, it's fucked up. It really is fucked up when you really think about it like. Why is she getting paid less than other people why when she is just as much as part of the show is everybody else right if she is if her character is now a series regular along with all these other characters. You think. How would you possibly be getting paid the least amount new that is so. Sto, suspicious in so just like it just continues to show how our country with the just. Systematic racism that we've had that just because of our privilege, we just have not really paid attention to or even realized until. We have have seen the facts in senior. It lay out in front of us, it's. Horrifying, it's so sad and now you know the Riverdell Creator. Put out a statement and said we hear Vanessa. We love the Nessa. She's right. We're sorry we make the same promise to you that we did to her. We'll do better to honor her the character she plays as well as all of our actors, inheritors of color changes happening and we will continue, and it will continue to happen. Riverdale, at bigger, not smaller Riverdale. Will be part of the movement, not outside of it. All the riverdell writers made Jim Nation. To block lives, matter outlay, but we know where the work must happen trust in the writer's room. Yes so I think that the only person that can judge the riverdell writers. Creator's intentions at this point is been initiate. She sees a change if she feels like they're actually doing their part than I'm sure she will. Talk about it yet, but it's not a not up to us to decide that I don't like you said. I feel wrong that I would have never even thought about this but I'm happy. That Vanessa has brought to light to educate us on the fact that this is real stuff that is happening right and you know other. Actors and actresses who have been on Riverdale have agreed with Vanessa Lake you. You saw the way I wash the show so like you saw the way that like the pussycats in the beginning of the series were portrayed, and how like they never really got any storyline whatsoever, they were kind of on the show and then Just put broken up. And then they were, they were just their characters were just no longer a part of the show, so there's definitely a lot of changes that. Could be made. Across the Board Not Riverdale I'm sure tons of. Shows. That are on right now and like you said Vanessa will be the one to decide if riverdale actually steps up. We show new. Fee. To be free. We Could pray. All the chains. Show could say. Oh Fangs, then as you say, say allow. Clean. The whole round. I wish, I could share. All know that should help. Remove all the offers that key. You know. Would it mean? then. You'd see and. Every may. Should be free. I wish. Good. All along? From we shot. Black I'm. Do? Do. A. On last week's episode, I had said that we were going to watch thirteen on Netflix. Hope that you guys watched as well we did. Watch that we want to talk about it. It thirteenth ways a documentary. On the Thirteenth Thirteenth Amendment! By Eva Rene and she. First of all is such an amazing filmmaker and everything she does is so fantastic, but. I really think like EXP- especially. This documentary is so informative and. I opening and Should be like required viewing lead. Kids should have to watch this in school. Exactly, this is something I. Just said to Frano right before we started was. Realized while watching this that there is so much that we did not learn in school, or at least I didn't learn in school that I feel. I was way more important than the stuff I did learn in school. You know what I mean like. Maybe we could focus a little less math class in a little more on this because. Geometry and I'm not doing that in my daily life. Yeah, yeah, I'm with you. That, that was sorry to people love geometry. Geometry using their daily life, but I don't and I. think that this would have been great to learn years ago, so this was made a two thousand and sixteen is when it came out and it is. Just as important right now and really shows how. From the time of the civil war and slavery, slavery has just evolved. In different ways as the years have gone on like you think Oh, no slavery wouldn't. Does slavery slavery thirteen minutes, but they talk about. A clause in the thirteenth amendment that has to do with crime in how if you already know a criminal that they can take advantage of that and how? Since then the black community has been targeted in ways that has just continued from slavery all the way now to mass incarceration right there, there are so like they've figured out different ways to enslave black people. It was like okay. Slavery's done wink wink, but now we're going to do all of this. And like you said there is a it's something they pointed out was like you know how to navigate it in a way where they can just pay people out to be criminals and paint them in a light where it's like these people are bad people. They're criminals. Even talking about. Cocaine Verse Crack. Cocaine how cocaine is like a rich person drug in its in wealthy areas in it's more societas with white people where crack cocaine is basically the same thing as cocaine. You could just smoke it, and that's more seen in black communities in poor communities and that if you get charge if you get caught with cocaine, it's less of a charge than getting caught with crack cocaine crack cocaine was seen more in black communities like that. Those are saying that when you learn about that, it's just completely fucked up cocaine and crack cocaine or the same thing in my opinion, same drug same events. So. They're just eating. You realize that they're figuring out different ways to go about this You know I think it started with Nixon. Who coined the term war on drugs? And then it was Reagan who, than actually may are in the war on drugs. And then it went to bill. Clinton, who just started putting everybody in jail was like. He came up with the three strikes and you're out if you get three. Charges Than Boom. You're in prison for life and I think that something. That was really eye opening to me and. I want to talk about how when? This has nothing to do with the documentary, but it made me realize how wrong I was when we talked about Bryce Hall and the other tectonic head, getting arrested for we'd and we were like Oh, you know. Thank God. It was just weed, but like. That is. So, wrong with our emily should've said thank God. That yeah, exactly like it was, it was a privilege way for me to think. They're going to be fine. Because you know what people who get caught with just read are not fine. You're not an I. This is crazy. I'm even citing on because I think. He's Kinda crazy at times, but he tweeted about how insane it is that there are still people walked up for life for you need. That has now become an essential business to be open during a pandemic like it's. It's legal in multiple states illegal in some, but some people are so locked up for life for something that is now legal like that is insane to me. Right did the Cartesian amount around marijuana now is is. Very important to read about and learn about because obviously. There are different things different laws in different states. But there are so so many people who were locked up for small Maryland charges. Who are still? In prison for that reason, and even though these laws are changing, where now like insurance, day did League? All these people are still locked up and it's. It's crazy, just just the numbers alone of how? In. Think like the nineteen seventies, it was like three, hundred, three, hundred, seventy, thousand, like in that range, and then you got to two thousand early two thousands doesn't detention, and now we're at two point. Three million at the numbers are absolutely insane Commerce slabs girls have posted a lot freely. Good information. They've been posting a lot of great. Post a lot of great links to read I love him so much. So Much I. Love! Yes, and so they. They had posted literally about this. Saying you know they. Tweet they posted on tweet and. Charlotte the guarded comments. You know people been saying this star legalizing marijuana. And then they posted a screen shot from the ACLU, saying that according to the used original analysis marijuana arrests now over half of all drugs in the United States of the eight point, two million marijuana arrests between two thousand and one into ten eighty eight percent were for simply having marijuana asia-wide, the arrested revealed one consistent trend significant racial bias despite roughly equal usage rates. Blacks are three point seven three times more likely than whites to be arrested for marijuana. And you know the ACLU had actually comment in the post. Is that anyone who wants to read the full report? You can read it at their website if you just go to ACLU, dot, org slash marijuana data. You can find everything they are, but it just really ties in. To the documentary into just. Finding reasons for. People of Color to be put into jail and. And I think that. Realizing how much the media in movies and TV. have tried to paint black people as criminals was extremely eye opening because I think you know when you're a younger kid and you're watching these things. You're not necessarily thinking that way, but subconsciously I think it goes into your brain. You know what I mean like when you're younger kigura sponge absorbing everything that's around you and when they put the stuff on TV then all of a sudden, they're they're trying to instill these thoughts in into your brain that are are not true and I. It just was extremely extremely eye-opening you know especially with the conversation around the law enforcement in cops right now it's just like. When they showed the videos of just the show cops, yeah, you see how often wight cops just taking down black people yeah and. It's the learning about just the amount of money that is poured into this and the influences that major corporations have on. Writing these bills, and then getting actually passed in government because of money obviously know that's that's no Best surprised like that's you. Obviously people have said politicians are corrupt for forever, but you know watching it all on seeing it all laid out like this it just it just makes sense on my Keno. Walmart Walmart makes all these guns and AMMO, and they're the biggest seller for for all these days, so they want to people to be buying more guns in people end. Having that connect to. The. This Alec is what they were talking about. How they, all these companies support Alex to get these bills passed that benefit them on. One of them was private prisons in how that has just grown continued, and it's it's. It's it's crazy. They told the story of Khalif browder which is so heartbreaking ended there actually is another netflix special on just cleave sliced called time to cleave browder story. This is how he had a dozen ten. He was just sixteen and he was accused of stealing a backpack, and he was arrested, and his bail was set at a price that he could not afford his family non-ford A neighbor had later lent the money to pay bail, but was he was denied release, and this is the system that they have where these bit like. The bail was set so high that he couldn't get out and they. Basically trick. These kids into taking a plea bargain plea deal because. They, scare them with like the Dominican send. The minimum sentences are so high like it's like all right you will, you'll be if you trial. You'll be in jail for twenty years, but if you just plead guilty, we'll give you three years and like they're doing a good thing. And Khalif did not do that because he knew he was innocent. He knew he didn't do anything wrong. But he was still in jail for three years to and solitary confinement. He witnessed all this violence with the inmates in prison guards, and after he was finally released two years later, he died by suicide and it's just what absolutely heartbreaking story and. It also just means. Also just makes you think of how like. We talked so much about the. College admissions scandal in how hike! Men and Laurie Lachlan like gun trouble, but they really did. Get Riley the the privilege that they have as white women. Who are you know in celebrities and just? Got Nothing like has happened was in jail for fourteen days and was out and Laura Lachlan's. You know probably won't have to spend that much time in prison either. Yeah, so the just the disparity in the contrast between the two is, is crazy. Yeah, it's insane in extremely eye opening like we said I really recommend watching this documentary as a start You know we've been talking about ways to educate yourself. Yeah, I think that this documentary is the perfect place to go, because it's GonNa. Open your mind to so many things you've never even thought about before because we've never as white privilege people. We never worried about it. But I don't think that means just completely ignore. It watches documentary, and you will see, and you will educate yourself on how corrupt some of this shit really is. Yeah, exactly and. It's. refinished after he finished watching IT A. It sounds so lame end end. Pretty Selfish, because like I said we hadn't really paid that much attention, but like because of Kim Kardashian I feel like so many more people started to pay attention to. Prison reform and to hear these people stories. You've been locked up for so long. That is just really assign of. You know how bad it was that nobody was paying attention until like can crash. It was like Oh. This is a problem and we're like Oh Kim Kardashian says this is the problem. that. We got better right like one. Can't when KIP card asking speaks up when we start paying attention to things, but sadly right, that's the world. We're at right and you know. Kudos to Kim because she definitely has put. A lot of eyeballs on this on on on this problem and trying to find ways to. Help people who have been in prison for so so long for such small minor charges to be able to get out and start their lives again. So like you said we I think this is A. Great. Dot Married Watch. If you're looking if you're you're you're looking at yourself. You WanNa. Start somewhere this was. A great a great way to start. I, think because I think it's an easy way to watch. The learn and then maybe. Continue on with other books or other you know. And whatnot, but it was like a very covered a lot. I feel like it was a good. STARTING POINT! Everybody here, everybody! To. START A Gaddis. Scott. Ness Guy. started. There's only one beer out there. That's literally made to chill and that's cores light. The mountains on the bottles and cans even turn blue when your beer is cold that way you always know when it's time to chill when you need to hit, reset just cores light. It's mountain called refreshment may jail. Light is the official beer chicks office. We know that it's the beer that we go to. When we need a moment to turn off a little bit just to I think our favorite is really just watch her favourite TV show having the course light. Maybe it's. Getting closer to the weekend and we enjoy a nice cold cores, light cores light is brewed with a three step cold process code lager cold filtered in cold package, so it's actually made to chill.

This is coming from. The is brewing company in Golden Colorado. We know has been a few weeks, but we have officially caught up on. The challenge wanted to talk about it and figure. No, this was a good spot to jump jump back in after we saw the absolute masterclass from Johnny Bananas On last week's episode I Love Donny Bananas You. Guys know this. We've loved on bananas for a long time, but my God. Was this episode that we have been waiting for I? Don't think we're going to go through it from top to bottom but we'll talk about it. West Verse Johnny Bananas. Something that challenged fans have been waiting for for years. If you've watched the challenge in the beginning of time you have been waiting for. For the day, a giant bananas and West would face it out, and you know what, maybe maybe we would hope that this would have happened when they were like I, don't to say in their prime because they don't want to discredit gentile bananas, I think were West Bank West is kind of past his prime like I. Don't you know? He took a break from the challenge for awhile he came back isn't one yet. I. I still think. It's because they became friends this season that even though it was great to watch and was really exciting. It would have been even more exciting if they still hate each other with the passionate hitting each other with years ago with they're just. They're too old now to have that same, and how old is too old to still have those? Feelings towards each other. They were still getting not about each other. That happened twenty years ago. Everyone would be like all right Johnny less give it a rest. I also think that working together. The Season Baby Kinda happy you know. I like when the Oh Jeez get together, and they kinda go against the new people because I think that's a right of passage. You have to work your way up to that. especially with people like Johnny Bananas Who's been doing this for. Y'All ever long twenty years? At this point so. I, it's. It was fun to watch them team up, but it was also funny because I feel like right away. This episode this past episode Johnny New. Like just really worth West as advantage. He through the. Through the challenge because he wanted to be the one nominated to nominate, go in. And he got his way got nominated by wins and. I feel like he kind of got west into this wasted. Latest twisted. Mentality! He didn't know he didn't really know which way to go. Because Johnny really backed into a corner, he was led wolf. I go in now I have to go into Johnny. But like I now I might not have another time Johnny stole this week for me and really just didn't give feel like he didn't really give west choice like if West. Johnny Win- West up there. I think he talked himself into like I have to go in I'm going to be an absolute. Embarrassment laughing stock like everybody's like wow! Western! Step up to the plate in go in and face Johnny. Just like really work to giants vantage Yeah Johnny knows how to play the game. I mean I think at this point. In time, you have to get into elimination routes. You can't go to the final so. WHO's sitting back and has been afraid to go into. The elimination is not doing themselves any good. You have to go through an elimination and I can imagine not wanting to sit around for another week with anticipation knowing am I gonNA. Make it in my knocked to make it in a Megan and might not make it an at this point in time. Johnny Bananas In my opinion, he's GonNa. The The final rose. He went up against West now everybody in the house respect that he threw himself in. He also beat. Beat West, which is you know everyone everyone wants to see. Johnny Bruce, West, who's GonNa, win it. He's got the respect of the house. I think so I. Think at this point in time he's. He's moving forward right along. He's played it the right way. The everything was coming up and as that episode right even when he nominated himself and people like Corey, Nelson. Who obviously have always tried to take down johnny rely a Yemeni now. We said clean slate will get this one two year good luck and then just. Really just handed it to him, which is crazy shows that johnny has that kind of power like it was really funny to seem nobody debate him like. Johnny. Go your name up. There Yeah I! Think the the whole season. Has Everybody so backwards anyway? With the fact that light you WANNA go into eliminations. Nobody really knows how to to play the situation. But it's. Seeing the end of that and you Johnny winning and Who the in the blowfish playing like it was such an almost an out of body experiences. You're like what's what am I watching? It was it was like that Johnny. End Wasn't had this unbelievable love story this whole time and Almost brings a tear to your eyelid. Johnny wasn't there interviews. They're both like you know just. WanNa look. Upon these decades of Time that I've spent on the challenge in I. WanNa. Be Able to look back in and think of West is a friend. It was just like what what is happening. It was like a romantic comedy. You're right with the with the music. That was Oh, my God. and. I think it's funny, because if Johnny didn't win this elimination, there is no way that he would be looking back and saying I'm GONNA. Look back on these moments and say I was friends with west I know Johnny. He's not saying that unless he wins a west. The hand handled the the loss pretty well I. Think He, you know. He said the same thing. Johnny like you know what I'm. Immune Bananas we formed a Friendship I. Really have and I know look. I have not watched all seasons that you have so like I I, never I've seen some of like the Johnny West Dynamic, but it's really only been I would say the past. Four Seasons or so and. I just I have a soft spot for west I really liked think deep down. West is a good person. Absolutely I think that. If you think about Johnny and West, his pass relationship, you're going back I. Keep saying twenty years. It's probably less than twice as a lot of seasons. Is Twenty years. You think about how you know. It went from the real world to the challenge, and the challenge was the a big. You know it's still a big reality. TV show, but there are so many other reality shows now, whereas when the challenge I started out. You know it was. One of the only reality TV shows you know there were plenty other ones, but not like there is now not even close so I think it was a a mixture of them getting big heads off of getting this initial reality TV show fame that were they were really only seeing for the first time there weren't people to model. Their careers after. And it's it's a show about competitiveness, and and you have. To be strong and I think a lot of men. They're like onto stronger. No on stronger and I think that's where. Probably. Most of it comes from, but when you've been doing it for so long I, think batches wears out the need to like. beat the other person especially when there are so many other people coming in now. You've been on so many seasons you've. You've caused fights with people that. They know that they were making good tv when they were doing these things John in West or both aware on how to make a good TV. Show how to make a good plot life so incoming either have great. Yeah, I think I think that these are things that they said into in years prior because even though I would against West I still secretly would be mad when he was off the show because he does add an element to the show and instigator so I think they just have known what they've been doing this whole time, even though they're probably was real hatred. They probably like you know in so long at this point what we fighting for now let's switch switch the pot around this result. Let's let's get a new going. And then it worked out even more in the end because people are like. Wow, they're going to go against each other. When they finally became friends. Yep, so this whole thing kind of worked out for them as to be the stars of the challenge, the sees indefinitely. Did I also WANNA? Talk about a couple of things from from what you know what's been going on? He's in one is Jenna. And Zach like Jenna. I thought. Really bawled out of the season she got thrown into elimination one one and got thrown into another elimination, and you know unfortunately lost, but everybody everybody count her out being like she choose out Zach struggle with Zach. You know she. She's GonNa leave just WanNa be here. She showed everyone that she was bad. Asked the winning the first limitation, but like I'm sure. That was in the back of her mind. Zach his so inefficient I just like she's on the challenge she's on. The show is been on this show. He knows how the show works and to. Give her that ultimatum over video chat like being like. Wow, no, we're ever going to work if you don't come home and right now was. So unfair so unfair. It was very unfair. I'm still not sure if that was A. Plant or if that's really what happened I kind of think that's really what happened although I've seen other people's. They say like Oh. There's doing. Some site I just i. just feel I I kinda have insight as to what Zach. Jenner's relationship has been like I so long now that it doesn't seem to unlikely for to be like you gotta come home right, and what I honestly don't know. Anything about it but I. Remember seeing someone damned about. Like an Amanda. Amanda Zach. Jenna. Situation ooh right now that I'm not quite sure what the details of that are, but it's. Something that I'm going to have to look into but. It really. Really I felt bad regina because that was so unfair, especially on a season where she was doing so well like back. At it just it just stops that you know because of that. She got targeted at. It might not have gone. That way acted and put her in that position and Then, there was also. Kayla and bear which was. A funny dynamic because bear. Persistence that guy is persistent like clearly when he wants something he goes again. It's tries to go and get it especially when it's a woman. Like Kayla's repeating over and over again how she has such a serious boyfriend. That's just wasn't. Obviously. That fell apart when she ended up kissing bear, and they have this whole dynamic. Obviously, nothing happened with Kayla. UNBEAR- after the show apprentice like blow up your life on TV in he'd gone. Yeah, I think the crazy thing with that or not that shocking. It all was just hearing. Say like you know change is a person. I really want to be faithful to my boyfriend and all of a sudden. Yeah, bear comes into the picture and everything changes. It's like. You know for the entertainment purposes. It is what it is got. You know maybe maybe focus on good morals. Right and you know like. What I also now love about the challenge bringing on people like from La, violin or MTV using people from laviolette now UK is that they're all. Like all Inter meeting dating because now Kayla is actually dating Sam. From Love Island Season Four I. He's four who was with. Georgia. Your remembered sat that Sam. Now I think made appearance I. Didn't I didn't finish all ex on the beach season that Georgia's on. Samit appearance on ex on the beach when Georgia was next on the beach, and now Kayla and Sam aren't dating this. This is what I like to see our favorite reality shows. Mixing yeah look at them together. It's. Just there. They are MTV and Love Island UK. Is just a mashed heaven. Dream Come really is because those those people are make such great reality TV and I feel like if they were to go on and do other reality TV link. Most shows we wouldn't obviously watch. We don't watch a lot of British reality television, but when they do other shows and then also mixed in with MTV we get to see at all. I will say. Last thoughts about the challenge throughout the season. was really sad to see Tory go some early. That sucks right. I. Wish that happened because we. We Love Story. and you know Jordan followed shortly after so. The this this was like. I just keep going back to Johnny. Johnny has just got to be so had to have been in that moment so pumped because like toreadors done West gone now. WHO's dealing with? Kyle Rogan? Josh like this is now. Johnny. Season to loose. Yes, John Deere you're. Nelson but he's not winning anymore right and and. Some of them are just so for Hanoi. Nelson gotta be putting their place Nelson. Just Shit Colin Kayla's lot. He's just such he Nelson continues to be Nelson. Is like he never? Set like he never learns from things that he says Rogin. is so annoying. Broken Day are idol by God I'm so over. Rogan indeed is is de dating west by. Best, I duNno, they censor best posted a picture de the other day like our best friends for a day pass, said their best friends but I I. Don't know I don't know but I've liked a lot of new people I feel like. They brought in a bunch of competitive new people which is great so. Like you said. It's Johnny's lose at this point. I feel like because. He also like Kyle and Josh. Worship Johnny I feel like out, and then you have Corey Nelson, who you know will. It's like you can probably be Korean. Nelson maybe Rogan. Thrown in there. Balian Swaggie Sal. We'll see, but. Now I feel a johnny could get billions fantasy. With him since they were with West it'd be like well he had. West has gone I can come to me. Absolutely, Johnny knows how to play. Make it work alright. RUPP's up today's episode of chicks in the office. We love you guys and we can't. We talk you guys on Thursday. y'All. Bringing.

You just met NPR music. Stephen Thompson with us today are our friends Britney loose an Eric Eddings hosts of the podcast the night. I'd is hey now, I just wanna say Britney, and Eric specifically were interested in talking about the I think this is the first Tyler Perry movie that we have done on the show, which is rather shocking. So shame. It is a shame. Eric. Tell me what it was about this movie that you guys thought would be interesting to talk about whether a few things and one I just wanna know how excited we were. There were many exclamation points in the Email. But people like to give Tyler Perry. Hard time deserved. You know, if you're looking for an October. I don't know that he qualifies that said his movies are fun. So they're really really fun. They're gonna make you mad at points. You're going to be like I wish you wouldn't have done that. I wish you would actually like thought about this plot. He's also going to give you so many excuses sit there and laugh and just like have a bit of escapist fun. And just be like, oh, this makes no sense. I enjoyed it. How did you feel like Nobody's Fool fit into that expectation? I always say my expectations were a little higher because I think inch Tiffany haddish coming into raises the stakes I was really really excited because I think Tyler Perry. He's he's actually pretty good for writing like punchy jokes. Like, he's going to give you a few things that are going to legitimately just make you laugh and Tiffany haddish like that's hard lane. She's gonna have you falling out of your child laughing. So I was really really excited for this film in particular, also really liked tika Sumpter, Amari Hardwick, all the things would be you know, in in our horrible wig. Horrible horrible wig, but horrible wig, but great role for her. Yes. The trend of Tyler period, not making a great film but making an enjoyable one. I think holds up in this particular case, I enjoyed it a lot I had a lot of issues with it though. How about you Brittany? Would you think I think expectations were also similarly higher because of Tiffany haddish also tika Sumpter who like idar an overall? Okay. It's not my favorite Tyler Perry from I think for me there were a lot of moments that I really really really enjoyed something. I think Tyler Perry does really well is he creates these really ridiculous but easy to get into like situations and just puts his characters in them. And let them have these big scenes where they can play. And like just punch a joke up and just like beat it to death like Whoopie Goldberg, I wish would have been in the movie more. She and Tiffany haddish together. Yeah. There's one scene in particular. What she was talking. It Tiffany haddish through the window. And I was like I wanna love to have like three of these that were six minutes long. I just like I didn't know which plot we were going to go for it was try and get complex momentum. He could be experimenting. We don't know. I did have one note actually, the very first note that I wrote down when I was sitting there watching the movie was everyone in this movie is so pretty. Oh, that's really true. So beautiful. Stephen thompson. What did you think of? Nobody's Fool is such a mess. Okay. So you have all these great ingredients. Right. We've listed all these really likable actors, and we didn't even talk about amber Riley. I think it's great. And who I haven't seen enough since glee Amari Hardwick who mentioned fine. You have these interesting discrete pieces all of which are misused. So so you have the kind of central plot of the story is that the tika Sumpter character is essentially being catfish. And that kind of ends up evolving shockingly into a romance that romance ends up taking up so much oxygen in this movie as the Tiffany haddish subplot just disappears drops out for really long stretch of this movie. And with it all that bonkers energy that Tiffany haddish bring. Yeah. So you have all the energy kind of being sucked out at the same time. Also think it misuses Tiffany haddish in a number of ways by simply turning her loose not with necessarily any kind of character arc. She's just there to be loud. She's just there to be vulgar. She's just there to inject all this energy. But Tyler Perry. Seems to have no idea what to do with this character. The character doesn't evolve in any kind of interesting way, all that the movie ultimately cares about is what becomes of this relationship which itself to me has its things that are not satisfying about it yet. I'm interested because Brittany and Eric have seen more tile payer movies than I have. It sounds like, and I'm interested in I'm interested in whether this is a Tyler Perry thing underneath this comedy. Or what's been promoted as a comedy is this kind of Ernest romantic drama that ultimately is about this successful career. Ladies. Subtly ladies that with this movie. Appreciate a simple good, man. And there's a moment where like he sort of lectures, her about like if you don't appreciate a simple good man, then and she winds up treating him so badly. She's hurting cases. The by the end, I was like don't go back with her. She's like go back with me. I didn't find the romance as uninteresting. Stephen did. I think Amari Hardwick is really really cares. I love him. He's great ingredients being misused. And I think that that story could have been interesting. I don't think they necessarily have a ton of chemistry. I have to say, but that may be partly the writing, but I got bogged down in the her being corrected about how to feel about men. Well, you maybe shouldn't see too many more Tyler Perry. Now that's Rex with the rest of the catalog. His base plotline is often kind of like the the quote, unquote, like shrew archetype kind of falling in love and not realizing that she should be falling in love with the kind of like blue collar, man. Yeah. Like that's been right underneath our noses six packs for hot like a super hot UPS guy. Yeah. How did she not notice the men with ads like I'm kidding on gave me coffee every day? Everyone in my phone would hear about it every single day. But also also like that entire coffee. Shop would be full of women pressed up against. Everybody needs a job everybody. But one thing I will add about that line in this movie. Like, I was kind of ready for that. I'm not even because it's such a consistent part of his movies. Usually has like this is my one moral message. And like I'm gonna go super hard on that. And you're gonna get it by the end the way, he did that in this particular movie, kind of unsettled me a little bit a lot of the ways they talked about kind of diction and. And how you should exist in a relationship with someone who has wrestled with addiction. Really kinda rubbed me the wrong way at parts. It wasn't just a this is a good guy, and you should be with him. It was this is a good guy. You should be with him. He used to be an addict or not he might fall off the wagon. I was so ridiculous weird moment. There's a moment where the Tiffany haddish. Character Tanya who has come to really like the guy he is someone who has had addictions, and the Tiffany haddish character straight out says if you break his heart, it'll send him back to using. And I was like why? I was like you can't put that on her. This affair also that's not necessarily true, and she did enough horrible things in the mall ready at that. To him like, this one additional thing would not have been the thing. I like this is the thing Tyler Perry is omnipresent. I don't really like this word too much. But the definition I think he's a perfect case study of the term problematic problematic Fave writer. The thing is though is that like top here. Also is a lot of cultural cachet. And so when I love when he cashes at in. I was like, yes, you really got maximum eve, you really got catfish in multiple scenes. I was so ready for that to be the whole protracted like crazy adventure caper, you know. And then they ended up obviously doing the love story. And that was oh k-. I mean, there are a lot of hot people involved. That was compelling for me. Yeah. I felt like it was gonna be this sort of like sisters getting together and just sort of like reconnecting found that have been incarcerated for five years. So I was looking forward to them sort of like piecing this mystery together with Mexican Nieve of who danika 's mystery boyfriend, actually was I. I was like prepare Lee. Yes, we're gonna have amber Riley. We're going to have tika Sumpter, Tiffany, haddish and Whoopi Goldberg with Maksim me figuring out the mystery Tyler Perry is going to have peaked. I understand why he's killing off media because I was like he is about to smash. Nobody's fool. I was really psyched when it turned out that the catfish storing was actually going to involve catfish, and my favorite thing about maximum Nieve. And I loved the fact that Maxon nave we're actually in the movie because my favorite thing about them. Is that max is self aware? And Nieves is not so. So when you bring them in like Max's, making fun of himself and making fun of catfish and Neave thinks he's cool because that's how Pat fish is. But like Britney I was really bummed when that part of it kinda petered out they follow that for awhile. And then there's a cameo that. I think we're not supposed to give away. And it was okay. Like, it's an oak casing. I didn't think it was a hilariously amazing scene. But I could talk about it. So what would you say about it without revealing the cameo? What would you say about it? Well, it was just a wasted opportunity. Yeah. As soon as the cameo was revealed, I was psyched I was there. I was present within as it starts actually roll on. It was like man, I wish you guys would have just done a few more takes this. And just kind of let the just just do what you feel and I think it would have probably been ten times better. I had a lot of issues with it. I mean, it is a movie about cat fishing that is built around a fundamental bayton. Switch in the plot. Which is kind of a. Now, it's true. Stephen talked a little bit about Tiffany haddish being misused or underused here, and the thing I agree with him like the Tiffany haddish roles that I've loved the most which of course, I am not a gourmet in this way. Like, I love Tiffany, haddish girls, drip. You know, when I have really loved her the most there is a fierce intelligence and a warmth to her even when she's being extremely silly. And she is one of those people, you know, we talked about big mouth, we talked about my Rudolph, and the fact that she puts just a ton of as Mike sure has said about the good place a ton of mustard on every single thing. She says and Tiffany haddish can be the same way. I think with anybody else in that role. It would seem totally unnecessary. But I think her delivery and her sense of comedy and her ability to kind of throw herself fully at this role makes it seem worthwhile. But to me did that character exist in the original version of this story, or is that a character that kind? Came to life to add an element of silly comedy that otherwise wouldn't be there is that a common Tyler Perry thing for there to be an underlying kind of serious dramatic story. And then a kind of an externally added comedic force. It's weird. This is a different type of Tyler pair just slightly though. Like, I think the issue is kind of going back to I think something Britney was touching on. It seemed like he was trying something new, but not sure which pieces of those movies he still wants to keep in the media films. There's often Medina is kind of the Tiffany haddish care to that comes in and like bits, and is like really the comedic relief in a majority of the story is usually like drama, but his films outside of the Medina franchise. Are usually a lot more straightforward in this film. It seemed like honestly, he just probably ran into Tiffany, haddish backstage and was like they had great chemistry. He's like, you know, I got something. I think you could really be good for. And then there it is. And that he, you know, maybe took another month with the script writer took another. Generous. And then we get Nobody's Fool, and that's really a shame because going back to the plot by Britney described where Tiffany haddish, you know, gets out of jail and her and her sister team up to realize that both a little out of touch, and they can bring themselves together by taking down this man who catfish are great fail. Now. Watch the movie that the trailers promised really really excite. Yeah. I couldn't tell watching this movie weather. I was glad that they had a really light touch with this little thing about whether her name is supposed to be danika. I felt like that was such a character tail and I wanted more the idea is she goes by danika. And her sister keeps telling her mom named you Denisa. Like, there's a whole thing going on there. The issue is that Tyler Perry, especially in this film. He prioritized the romantic relationship in spite of the character development. So tika Sumpter scarier, Tiffany haddish's character, they didn't have whole ARC's. So once the actual romantic plot kinda came to its natural conclusion, you got to wrap up the movie because you already spent almost two hours. So they really bummed me out and going back to that in particular. It was something that they didn't actually really even wrestle with with her care to throughout the earlier parts of the phone. That was like the only thing, you know, was she did she used to be a little more hood. Like, you know, how would is the got her to this point where you know. She is kind of this stuffy at exac where does she goes Tiffany Becker life, make things better? We don't know. We'll never know. I know, and I think that if they had focused on that relationship. It would've been a much. More relatable movie. I think that like a lot of people can identify with class differences within their family. I think a lot of people can identify with remaking who you are making yourself up in a completely different fashion to get a certain place in life and a lot of people can can identify with having a family member who's incarcerated being gone for a while. And then coming back in them sort of like getting back into society on the outside. And then also like their family sort of maybe seeing where they all stand in relation to each other. I think that could have been such a like really relatable relationship to explore dynamic to explore. And I felt like that was kind of missed opportunity. I was interested in the family. And then it just didn't quite get fully played out though. Like, why am I how do you have Whoopi Goldberg tika Sumpter in Tiffany haddish and just not want to sit with them. Yeah. I mean, that's maybe the movie that we all would have loved the most. But you also feel that this movie didn't know what to do with its r rating. Yes. Because it was so yes. First of all gives them a chance to let Tiffany, haddish swear, more swear more. Yeah. Dirtier, but it also. Dropping in this weird awkward sex scene. It was extended. But I went to go see this in a theater, I was I was to bring him before. We started talking to auntie set was out full force. Yeah. And I couldn't hear anything. Night after that seat. So I don't know it wasn't meant for me. But the people who was meant for solid. I think I think that's right. I had the same sense in theater that I was in it wasn't as full. But I had the same sense that there is an audience for that scene to say the least. Well, I am guessing that many of you will wind up seeing. Nobody's Fool or have other thoughts about Tyler Perry.

"Hello and welcome to the maxima theater performance podcast today patty penny maria korea and jack reviews and shows. They're excited about as summer winds down and the twenty nineteen to twenty twenty season begins enjoy the shell. So how should we begin me me me me me. The stakes are definitely be like outtakes and and i look i love nothing more than an actor warming up in like a confines anywhere else a little alcove yeah oh yeah wall and you're just like this is the life you chose. Oh it's a wonderful business wherein we introduce ourselves uh-huh yeah. That sounds good. It's me patty. I've been on here twice thrice before i used to podcasts and my friend emily you might know me from that now. <music> i'm seeing theater and in grad school for library science <hes> pity maria here actually also have a video of log. I guess that i do with my friend emily to see or not to see you know we have such busy. Allies is hard to catch up and likewise. I haven't been on maximal in a while but i'm glad to be back. I'm jack. I haven't been on on this podcast in a while either and i don't remember how to do this. We're gonna figure out by day. I am the director of new artists <music> at just pat public theater new york shakespeare festival. <hes> and i do remember that i'm supposed to say that my views are my own and not those at the public theater. I believe that's on march is richard's muggers yeah. I never got one actually no. We need to do another order her yeah yeah so. We're here to talk about theater. In september yeah like <unk> end of august to september. Maybe early the october. Just upcoming sounds good yeah. This is the time of year when a lot of particularly off broadway theaters are ramping up starting their seasons again. They're a summer more or less off although some program throughout the summer like the one. I work for a very book but it's also yeah. There's there's it's easier here to see everything <hes> in the summer <hes> that you want to see and then the fall comes around and there's just there's no time now the whole thing that way but so yeah we're going to talk about a few of them so who wants to who wants to start with what they're excited about in september. I've never done the. I've never you've taken the league. I guess very strange. I'm gonna sit back and someone else. This is great. I'll start with one show because it's coming up soon. Ash in on august twenty third and twenty fourth the dirty minds theater company is doing a production of head-over-heels recently of the broadway and <hes> this is a theater company. It's a newly formed theater company. It's <hes> five zero three c charity and every production the proceeds will go to a different new york city l._g._b._t. Charity and for this production the proceeds are going to allie forni center and they also have a go fund me to help fund the production production but they reach their goal. I mean not saying you can always get more money but so that's good it's funded <hes> tickets are fifty dollars which for <unk> a charity production doesn't you know that seems completely reasonable and i love head over heels and i'm glad that it's still being produced adduced not still but even so quickly. It's being produced. There's a production that just wrapped up in chicago. I think <hes> and it's just a great great great show and i'm excited that more audiences are going to see it. I like the idea of like shows that are i mean not that like had her. Heels is necessarily a cult show but he had like the defense that it has even when it closed are so like compassionate maybe to the degree of something like be more chill but i love the fact that like be more chill. I think as we're recording. It closes today but what's interesting. Is that like that's another show that like is going to live on in some way just because the fans wouldn't have it any other their way so it'll be exciting to see like how this production of head over heels will obviously it'd be different from the broadway run but like i don't know it might be fun to like nick. I wonder if there's going to be grateful. Dead thing where people like go around the country watch their favorite show in different. It would be really cool. Yeah i mean i'm getting way too far ahead but that's a little like six right. What's happening with sick yet where they're doing simultaneously simultaneous productions like everywhere l. Everybody cheer maximo show. Maybe which is it's not coming till february in new york but it's they're going on norwegian cruises. There's it's in the west end. It's nice a touring england. It's an just wrapped up in chicago and then there's also going to be simultaneously different chicago production. It's like it's an interesting new model title then. I'm really excited to see what happens with it definite yet but that head over heels also will be at theatre eighty on saint marks place car got it got it. <hes> i just wanna say 'cause i didn't before that <hes> head over heels has music by the go go's of course just to go those and <hes> the book was written by jeff whitty and james mcgruder. I think there was some you know somebody wrote it and then somebody worked on it later yada yada but <hes> credit obviously should be paid all right so i'll go next. I'm excited to see felix storrow. It's going to be at theatre row in. It's all about what a faith healer wanna read the little synopsis felix pharaohs the famous faith healer in the philippines whose clients include celebrities birdie's and big politicians after falling on hard times felix decides to go to san francisco with his young grandson to set up shop for ailing in filipino in the bay area earn just enough money to go home and retire comfortably unbeknownst to felix his grandson junior has has plans of his own to leave his grandfather and take his chances as an undocumented immigrant so here. I was intrigued when i saw another their faith story coming to theater. I grew up in the church but it was more reserved so anytime i would feed the people on t._v. Screen remember like what is happening right now. It's a little frightening. Almost i'm like you can't i don't know. Are you gonna scare. Urge evolve into somebody. I don't know it's a little a little too much <hes> but also looking at colonization right and how it spreads and in the philippines particularly yeah i'm watching i'm curious to see how that will play out in this production and then also tying it to everything going on today with immigrants in this nation so i really wanna see how all of that comes together and i'm excited that we're telling these stories and especially where broadening up the people of color spectrum on stage so that's another reason i'm glad to see you know this particular story being. He told the nurse multiple levels in it again. That's going to be at theatre row in opens on august twenty or the preview starts august twenty third and officially opens on september first and it has a large cast <hes> so i'm. I'm looking forward to unpacking the show. After the the discussions that will follow who wrote it so this play is oh well. It's has music as well so book and lyrics by the jessica had your dohrn and music by fabian osce could grant yeah sorry fai butcher the names mhm <hes> but yes so you know. I love the little music musical theater so i'm i'm interested in then you say. There's there's also music again. Oh yeah yeah. That's another layer yeah. I mean especially especially if you're talking about a church music is so important. We know that yeah that's fascinating. <hes> i'm not gonna talk about any musicals today which we need that go great because i think about music music okay. There's more musical is coming there. There's a lot coming up in sort of the sort of non profit off broadway scene this fall or really sort of this august this into the fall that i'm excited about and i'm going to start speaking of faith with a show called heroes of the fourth turning by a wonderful therefore playwright name will arbitrary directed by donna taymor whose name you've probably heard before in the off broadway scene. She i think most recently directed <hes> jeremy. Oh harris's play daddy that was in the new group and the vineyard. She's worked at lincoln center. All over the place incredible <hes> this is going to be at playwrights horizons starting september temper thirteenth and it's it's sort of loosely inspired by where will grew the sort of environment that will argue the player at grew up. I've been in it centers around a group of friends who are all conservatives living in wyoming and not only are they conservatives. They are catholic conservatives yeah and it's sort of the end of a night of party and we're meeting all of these friends and they're sort of debating the <hes> the state of the catholic church of the moment as well as the political situation in the united states. If you don't know we'll see you might have heard his name before with a production of a play called plano <hes> <hes> that started at clubbed thumb summer works last year and had an encore run at the connelly the club did which was an incredible debut very strange beautiful beautiful sort of off kilter story about three sisters and the production that taylor reynolds masterfully directed was sort of like a played loosely loosely with time and space and humor and there's some supernatural elements to it appears the fraternities actually much more of a quote unquote like straight play sort of one environment arment. We watch the same characters. It has that sort of like solid american play field but because this is will are buried there may or may not be some other stuff way down shining doc doc fouls lends itself to all sorts of absolutely the things in the reason. I'm really honestly excited about this. Play is this is i'm familiar with. I've read the play before it is a very <hes> unsecure ical. Just sort of bright light of day look at contemporary american conservatism services them. It's not a you know at first point. It's not like in a very liberal city like new york and in a very liberal field like the american theatre tends is to be this is not like a hit job on american conservatives or trump voters. It actually is like what if we take. These folks absolutely seriously on their own terms. What can we learn so it's gonna be really interesting thing to watch people watch this play and process their own feelings about them especially because because there is even some in the characters and players disagreement about donald trump and we function in the republican party <hes> the title heroes of the fourth fourth turning. I don't wanna spoil it but it is a reference to a very sinister book. That was <hes> steve bannon's fatal book so anyway i just i love this playwright. I think this is going to be a really interesting thing to see how it moves in three dimensions and how it plays to a very liberal crowd see this is heroes of the the fourth turning at playwrights horizons this fall i should. I should probably see that because i'm catholic well. I was raised catholic. I should see it but like that sounds sounds like i don't know i i would probably see a lot of family members visible in in the in the show yeah yeah might not want to see but sure and it's interesting because there's also the play also sort of deals with generational tensions sort of most of the characters are the same mejia and there's one character from an older generation of comes on toward the end and that sort of <hes> raises the stakes a little bit gum. Yeah cheers like the mister stir year. You're weaving right now. It's got me intrigued. I'd like the mystery that will armory weaves so it's a and he's just he's an incredibly. He's a fearless player right and i think this is going to be a really great way for people to continue to get his work as he's. I think he's gonna be around for a while. The next show i'm going to talk about is one one of my very favorite kabaritis molly pope and she's doing a show at the do plaques on september tenth and it's called delightfully. Molly pope a gay man and a pinault. What else do nothing in my life. I need nothing. I'd be set set for life. She if you haven't seen molly pope or heard molly pope is just a a one of a kind performer. She has this very rich old school sounding voice but but not in a way that is is <hes> um like mimicry or a derivative. It's just very natural. She thought she couldn't sing for a long time or like didn't have the kind of voice that people wanted to hear just because she had this very specific tone to her voice and she does great <hes> great cabaret shows all over new york and she was working on <hes> an original piece in philadelphia. Recently that i believe is called poly mope and hopefully that will have a future. We'll get to see that. I'm interested with this show particularly because it's the description that she's doing song. She's always wanted to tackle few sieff. You've seen one of her shows. There's a few you know everybody has their their book or whatever social show she does a really fantastic rendition of lords royals royal's in like an old school jazzy style and this. Maybe we'll be all songs. We've never heard molly pope sing before which will be very very exciting and for this vis performance. The gay man will be drew. What key which apologies if i said that incorrectly but it's on september ninth it's at nine thirty pm and it is a cabaret show so there's two drink minimum if you buy tickets in advance. It's twenty dollars if you buy them at the door. It's twenty five and she did just post. You know they're like halfway sold or whatever so i would get on by those tickets yeah yeah. She's incredible. She's been brought up a lot the history of this stuff mostly david levy who knows quite close with molly and <hes> yeah she's a she's a force to be reckoned with <hes> and <hes> yeah can't wait to see <hes> yeah now. It's time to get serious. Oh okay that's serious by you know something that people of color have been dealing with for a long time the the name of this show is american more <hes>. It's written by playwright keith hamilton cobb and it's going to be at cherry lane theatre. I preview review is on august twenty seventh and it opens on september twenty eighth so let me tell you a little bit about the show and indomitable notable african american actor auditioning for the role of fellow must respond to the dictates of a younger white director who presumes to better understand shakespeare's expires iconic black character what could possibly go wrong. This fraught audition turns into an exploration of shakespeare race and in america not necessarily in that order fueled by humor and passion american moore paints and essential portrait of an american theater unaware of its failures and of the culture that supports it one line comes to memory from our our individual podcasts. Do better people remember that yeah so i think this play aligns itself. You know perfectly perfectly with where we are. We're at a place where everyone in the theatre world saying yes. We need to be more inclusive <hes> but are we really taking the right right steps to make that happen. Are we understanding and evaluating people's perspectives over our own especially if we're not in a particular situation so this i believe this actor because he also is a performer himself came against. Is this a lot of a lot in his career spoken to other friends who have also had a situation where you know big audition and someone tells them act blacker and like i i. I don't know what you mean blacker when the person really means act could more scary and it's not the same thing i mean this is going to be something to see how this story story unfolds. They just i think earlier this year. They did a run at anacostia playhouse in d._c. Do <hes> and so well. It's gonna be coming here to the cherry lane soon and it looks like the playwright has been working on the show for a few years and i didn't get to see any other previous iterations but like you were saying patty. I'm wondering if it's one of those shows that will be replicated more more often in how the context will also change range if society is able to change. Hopefully we'll get to the place where you know. This will be a look back. Piece won't be something that people can relate to <hes> <hes> in their day to day auditioning life but i again i love when we have multiple things coming together so we're looking back in the past but it's it's this issue. That's very relevant to today and i've never seen any work by keith hamilton cobb. I'm interested in checking this show al yeah i had that mys- sort of backup lessons and to make sure i had enough topics to talk about and i'm glad you brought yet has yet. I'm not super aware of the off broadway scene in one of the reasons. I like doing this. Podcast is because it forces me to look beyond like the the boards as it were <hes> and i i was like oh this yeah this. It's not only like one. I'm interested in but i'm going to have a very busy fall finishing up my master's degree and i'm going to carve out time to to see the show. It sounds <music>. A i mean the the big i word important but also super interesting and necessary yeah extremely extremely <hes> and we need more work like this. That's you know really questioning and getting at the heart of the matter rather than just doing blind kathy. Let's dig a little deeper folks in this show. Doing that sue better yeah i. I'm so excited because i've been hearing about this. Show for a few years and i'm so excited. I finally get to see it. I think it played a couple of times in anacostia. Dan koch plays and then i think it was also in boston a couple times to arts emerson around and it's really gorgeous a <hes> monologue and it's kind of unpacked sort of the problematic nature of the character fellow himself sure <hes> <hes> and of course you know as someone who works at a theater that shakespeare all the time. It's always really interesting to watch how you consider. Roles in plays by today's standards standards are problematic is perhaps too mild a term anytime we're talking about taming of the shrew or the merchant of venice or fellow immediately questioned start coming up about like like why are we still doing this and what end and wire we using a fellow to explorer you know a race in two thousand nineteen <hes> and yet not to mention everything that actress go through <hes> when there <hes> yeah placed in a in in a field that is still absolutely right with white supremacy so i'm looking forward to seeing the gentle white supremacy you know their their yeah yeah yeah yeah. It's it's a little subtle sometimes because their intentions on the outside are good but internally they haven't done that work right and so. I think this is one of the shows. That's forcing people to do that in again. It's more and more off broadway. Theaters are producing these black works. I'm always always curious to see <hes>. Do you have a white director. Do they really understand what the show the bow i mean. It's really interesting because a lot of the patrons especially if it's off broadway have subscribers i mostly white you know the director can communicate to them but are we losing what the playwright has intended yeah. It's a we always forget that you know yeah. You can just say like oh look here are season. Look at how racially diverse playwrights are looking you know <hes> but then and it's like you haven't actually the infrastructure is still built for primarily white audience senate and a place that is sort of in some ways designed to make people all of color another marginalize folks out of uncomfortable in those spaces and so it's like okay we one box and then we actually aren't looking at the infrastructure picture of it yeah. It's a lot go ahead jack region but it's all because what it does is it makes you ask fundamental questions about why we do the things we do and it's not just about oh. We just need to change this little thing and switch grade got me fixed. That switch is flicked the other way. It's actually like owed that affects this in audiences fact you know ticket prices. You know all kinds of things in so anyway this is we don't have into this on this podcast. It's his stomach. I think is a word that straight down around your exactly what you described. Oh this affects this that affects this. Oh it's this whole system that's built to to benefit one group of people and not everyone everyone else yeah so you can't change one part and the great everything to fall in exactly yeah i just had a lot of words and you just said the word has done what and i don't think this is true. People who are listening to maximize podcast but if you described that to someone who who is so sick of hearing the word systemic yeah broke it down and they would go okay. I could see how that makes sense and then you go yeah. That's what systemic means dummy. I probably shouldn't say dummy. Don't don't say we're doing the work. That's what everyone to explain the word before you can use it especially because people we're so sick of hearing certain words because they don't either know or understand what it means. We're don't care automatically. Shut down here certain word yeah. Yeah look really okay american more yeah so the second show. I wanna talk about <hes> happening on the off. Broadway scene is apply. Love called our dear dead drug lord by a wonderful playwright name alexis share <hes> who is either has just graduated or is still completing. Her masters visit boston university alexis. I'm so sorry that i'm if i got in your education status wrong but she's fantastic and is has has written this play that is set in a treehouse <hes> and it's a bunch of teenage girls who were all classmates from varying a it's important to note varying racial identities ladies and they are part of a club at the school that originally was supposed to create educational materials around like forgotten leaders and important people wolfram history but what it's turned into his a deep dive into violent horrible like dictators and murders of the past and so the these girls have assembled at this tree house because they are going to try to contact the departed spirit of pablo escobar the not drug trafficker and and cartel magnate and so we have a little bit of a ouija board energy going on in this play and we're trying to summon this spirit of this guy and and does that happen. Maybe maybe not are they actually trying to exhume other sort move invisible things amongst themselves as teenage girls living america. I would say both things might be true. Another reason to you get excited about this plays. The director who is named whitney white <hes> whitney white if you don't know her is sort of the like the the next great amazing all around artist of the american theater so we might have probably mentioned this podcast directed movement theatre. Your company's production of alicia harris descend up when it goes down which happened last fall was huge huge hits and a beautiful show whitney's. He's also it's worth saying a singer and songwriter and performer and experimental artists in fact we hosted her at are under the radar festival of the public this january with a piece called macbeth in stride which was sort of a rock concert from the perspective of flay macbeth which whitney played so windy whitney's is fucking credible and and so you're gonna see start seeing her name coming up a lot off broadway in the coming season and you should absolutely seek out everything that she does <hes> so this show starts starts <hes> our dear dead druglord starts on the eleventh of september. It's a co production. I should say between the w._p._a. Theater which you might know by its former name as the women's project theater peter and the second stage co-production a thing happening here but it's performing at the w._b._z. Theaters main space up on and took seventy six traits up side. The one train so yeah are geared a drug lord. It's really funny and weird and beautiful and at times scary. It's a really cool show. He's check it out wound school. We have so much mysticism like we are coming into follow this. We're gonna talk about some more. I didn't realize i just picked three shows that like i'm really excited. They're actually all connected by yeah. Okay mine are completely disparate but obviously connected by <unk> musical theater so the show. I'm gonna talk about next as as the off broadway new production of little shop of horrors which i'm super excited about and the rumblings about it happening happening for a little bit because there were like those surveys that went out there were like would you be interested in seeing little shop of horrors and the interesting thing about this is that we get this announcement that little shop of horses coming and it's coming to the westside theatre and it's going to star <hes> <hes> jonathan groff as what's his face seymour tammy blanchard is gonna be audrey and christian borough going to the dentist. I think that's all the casting we we have currently but like i was like yes check check check. I love that i'd love it if borel and graphs which sometimes played the other parts but you you know dreams and then like the next day i think we got an announcement of a nother like east coast west coast by a different little shop of horrors at the pasadena playhouse and that is <hes> starring george salazar's seymour. I'm i'm jay. Rodriguez is audrey and amber riley is going to be the singing voice of audrey too and i was like can i have have the hat one. I mean again no disparaging the people that were announced. I'm super excited. I love little shop. I've seen it a million times. I've seen up up to three children's productions of the show so which is a weird thing. I love it. I love it so oh. I'm happy to see it anytime like just sort of one more talking about like do a little better not that i don't love those three actors but here we have another all white principal cast and then you give me two days later or whatever an incredibly interesting and diverse i cast yeah i want it. I want that. I'd rather see that i mean jus- george cells are alone. I keep talking about it seemed like george salazar's seymour such a brilliant. Just it's such a value and now well. I mean at the very least i mean little little shop of horrors. I've never actually seen it but one of the reasons because it's this show that's so beloved by particularly musical theater head. This very rarely revived in new york true. It doesn't come around. There's amateur productions. There hasn't been like splashy production in a while so i'm actually just just for my own education. I'm excited about the hunter foster revival on broadway at encores recently they were they were on the court version. Jake jilin aw that's right and ellen motherfucking green listen. I saw that too obviously because all i do apparently shot before but it was incredible and it was weirdly hardly like a rock concert for ellen. Greene like that audience was so excited to see her in it. Shows the original audrey for those who don't know she's in the rick. Moranis movie <hes> she's a a jewel of the american theater and i will i will see little shop anywhere and everywhere and i will see this off broadway revival and i'm very excited about it but i don't have money to fly to pasadena and see this other production which i also wanna see in their previous start on the same day. The previews both start september seven. I didn't realize that i'm sure they just because i was going to check in and i was like oh shit. This is some throwdown and my gosh i mean i wish i could see both if anyone wants to sponsor me on my a cross country tour of little shop of i will go see <hes> the west pasadena playhouse production because i really i love jay rodriguez. I mean incredible work on pose. I didn't get to see the rent at new world stages <hes> she was angel and i i didn't know i know enough to see that then i think shall shall. We an incredible audrey. I just love little shop and i'm happy that these two productions are happening but i am extremely jealous of everyone that gets to see that west west coast cast. I mean yeah. I was looking at that. One like wait wait. Byzantine was hot. Yeah i mean not not to demean little miss but i was just so excited and i haven't seen amber riley in a while. Oh no shows thin but i was like oh like i'm so yeah we were supposed to give her. Dreamgirls hasn't come and i don't know if it will which is a bummer it has been great since glee and she was great in the wiz live and <hes> i mean we still have the rest of new york casting. I don't think we have a voice for audrey to yet. There was a production up in the berkshires. A couple of summers ago where the singing voice of audrey to was briana marie parham and i'm the embodiment of the plant i think was a drag queen. Does something like that and another thing that i'm like. I can't travel to massachusetts who sits for that but i want to. I just a little shop before so thank you for the new york production but i still wish it was the other one well. Hopefully you get to see both yes. Someone will sponsor me and send me out to california well. Mark third selection is a more affordable show <hes> <hes> so difficult to get tickets. It is difficult. Hey my comment on mm-hmm. Nope the nature of that about that. I know you know show. That's been details with you so this is hercules at the public theater della corte theater in the park so it opens on august thirty first so this is a part of the annual public works program graham. I wanna just give a shout to lindsey because she took me to see my first public works. Show amazing in twenty seventeen that was a midsummer night's extreme and the director is the same director for this upcoming production and that's lear to bethany so i mean who doesn't love the story of hercules leagues and this show <hes> we have some big important names in it some familiar names. I'll go ahead and read a few so we have jilani <music> aladin. Thank you still currently on broadway in frozen or just finished left frozen. Okay and roger roger bart not jeff hiller james monroe. I go heart <hes> so i'm excited to see him because i didn't get to see him. In a latin we have have ramona keller to mika larence krysta rodriguez and remo web just to name a free web yes i i really enjoyed the public works program because it was so amazing to see all of these different folks from the community be able to participate in <hes> in the production and you you could just hear all of the joyous energy from their family and friends in the audience watching them on stage and so it's just really exciting to provide that opportunity opportunity for the community to be able to perform and then also to see themselves reflected on stage which is also very important and so let's go ahead and and check out this hercules gonna reach the little description as well even though most of us most of us are familiar with this <hes> so i'll l. Just read what they had on their website. Public works will present the glorious story of hercules bought to vibrant life by professional actors and community groups from across across the city journey with hercules in this new stage adaptation that invites new yorkers from all five boroughs to to participate in joyous musical death celebrate the heroes found in all of us and i think that last line is really important because now more than ever like we all have to look within ourselves and be our own leader because there's so much craziness shinhan. There's so many against so we have to draw <hes> <hes> from within so hopefully this show can encourage everyone to do that. <hes> <hes> in again this director also did miss you like hell which was off broadway at the public theater in venus which was at signature theatre <hes> a few years ago so oh yeah i'm gonna be checking out her work and looking forward to see this collaboration on stage and now seeing an expert no jack. I'm obviously biased but he's been the journey of the show has been really incredible audible in one of the coolest things that's ever happened admit certainly my time at the public <hes> it's amazing because the as you mentioned the pageants that we do every year through the public works program which lear domestic founded have mostly been adaptations of shakespeare twelfth night as you like it tempest <hes> the odyssey was in there for good measure as well but this is the first time that we're adapting. I mean hercules obviously a classical story content but the disney ninety seven disney film which by the way i still still to this day no every good and like the fact that like you know alan menken david zippo who had the film and been actively working king on this on this production new music that was not in the original film and the fact that disney films are such a <hes>. I think for a lot of people including myself you know my parents. Take me to musicals when i was a kid but did those sort of nineteen ninety. S era knows that was my gateway drug into musical theater the lion king and the little mermaid and so it's just really exciting to see you know not everybody who comes to public works as red twelfth night but a lot of people have seen disney film so it's gonna be. It's gotta think it's gonna be different. Energy and i should should not christopher d. as incredible playwright wrote the book and the choreographer is chase broad yahoos choreographed. I think every single one maybe with one one or two exceptions of our public works passions. He is going to be great. Y'all and this is the first public works pageant which we should note that is normally. We do at just over labor day weekend again. This is actually gonna spend two weekends because demand has been falling love that disney's doing it. Yeah disney's wrong with us on. I'm not gonna get into a lot of that but like i just love you know. Disney is disney and we all have to reconcile that however we do but that they're like yeah all all right. We'll do because they they could and i don't know what the future of anything might be of this production but right now they have said no 'cause. We could put this on broadway right now. Zac jillion dollars because it's very clear that they could because of this may be a testing ground right but even still they're allowing themselves to do it it this way i which is great because i have to do anything. It's been interesting to me like how <hes> obviously this is. The first time that the public has worked with disney theatricals articles but i've always been interested in like the differing ways in which their properties are adapted for theater on broadway and aladdin frozen and stuff like that but i'm i'm just remembering when i was living in chicago. Mary zimmerman who's like the noted experimental artist of base there they gave her the jungle book and then they kind of let her do it ever she wanted and it was by no means like a blockbuster like you know sort of cash grab. It was deeply. Artful leaned very much into mary's aesthetic and anyway. It's just been really even taymor like a julie. Taymor was not like she wasn't. I think quite julie taymor you know but she wasn't you know christopher ashley or whatever <hes> and that doesn't doesn't it just is a different pulling from a different like dictionary. There's a much less interesting boring version of the lion. King on broadway was not out to make this anyway. It's gonna be really fun yeah. I'm excited and there's for anyone who's interested there. There's no like ticket line. There's a daily lottery online find lottery only and then they will do an in-person standby lottery so you can usually if you go to the theater you can wait in the standby line nine and here. It's sort of a chance to wait in the standby line because because of the demand they just really as far as i understand it not concerned in but wanted to make sure people weren't going to be like camping out in the park. <hes> and you know it's very exciting that people are so excited for it and every time there's these is like even with broadway hamilton the lottery and things get so big that it's a little scary it also means that people are excited about theater which is great yeah yeah you know and the whole purpose of not the whole purpose of one of the purposes of public works in lear and oscar uses conceived of it was this idea of breaking down the barriers areas between what we consider professional artistry is a spectrum there are artists and non artists and so you know the fact that you know all these wonderful people that you mentioned including by the way i love roger bart whose voice for me sam can't odyssey gilani. I'm astor but like the fact that all of you know. It's not going to be just sort of fans of the original film in the audience onstage as well. It's just it's going to be great so the last show that i wanna talk about <hes>. It's actually two shows <hes> running as a double bill. I mean for bang for your tuck. This is hard to beat this fall so excuse me anthony so dope. Via is a playwright who you've probably heard mentioned a couple of times on this podcast before over the past several years. She has embarked on this nine place. Cycle called the fourth cycle which sort of tracks nigerian american family living in boston and new york as well as a few key moments in jury and it's this epic cycle that primarily follows the the main this main character a bus yama and she her story has been told a couple times already in the new york stages so the first play of anthony so cycle so jenner's premiered few years ago at the playwrights round and the narrative workshop did a sort of repertory performance of that play sojourner and another play in the cycle which was called her portmanteau ed iskander skandar directed both of those so near workshop after a couple years off is tackling the next two or not not chronologically the next two more plays in this nine play cycle. I think i've heard say that you know the first place journalists that's the origin story and then the other aid can can be performed in whatever order i like that yeah and may take place in different times and places and totally and structurally and sort of artistically. They feel very different. I think she has in the last show audion snatch joy yes so the first and the last show that god reading of that yummy to so-called so cool <hes> so the two plays that are being presented starting september fourth at new york theater workshop are called run boy run and the second place called in old age unlike sojourner owners and her portmanteau few years ago which was represented in rep these plays will be performed a single evening of theatre which means that you're getting to plays for the price of one and if do you act quickly near workshop has their first week of previews or like thirty bucks or something right you can get to play to great off broadway plays for thirty bucks which is pretty amazing <hes> <hes> and run boy run and it'll age sort of find a boss yama toward those later stages of her life. We've seen her in previous places young woman and as an older woman and in old age is about both plays are about sort of her relationship <hes> with her husband disciple who she met and in the first first place journal and <hes> both plays her very they're very hard to watch at times they're incredibly dramatic and sad and and and <hes> very much plays about bossy avas agency the agency of an african woman living in the united states who has been here for so long and yet still cannot shake some of the the horrible things about both america and where she's come from and runway run that play potenza particular place in my heart because it's actually the story of disciple himself actually on as sort of a not a minor character but sort of <hes>. She's a supporting figure and that story and the the way that the the play klay move on the pages so gorgeous terrifying and sad and i'm interested to see how that plays within days which finds again a bus yama toward the end of her life life in this sort of gorgeous two hander and as i've indicated with all the other shows i've talked about there's some there's some spiritual things happening in the wings of this play that may or may not make their way on stage. I won't say how but it's going to be very exciting and i should mention so unlike the previous iterations of the vote vote cycle near theater workshop. There's actually two directors tackling these place so runway run as directed by the incredible greco who's autistic writer the magic theatre in san francisco enciso and it's worth saying that they have been that theater loretta specifically have been huge supporter of this cycle and anthony so general and the second play in old age is being directed by <hes> the wonderful william tempo who directed so many shows last season but <hes> in particular to place by goes the onion with it. We're both amazing good grief and <hes> on homecoming queen so yeah. I'm very very excited. I love double bills of theater like i don't know how long the whole evening will be imagined is probably somewhere near three hours but like it's worth it's worth it and the way the pace of for her work moves you don't even notice the passage of time and i'm i'm just like i have chills just talking about her work. I'm like i can't wait. <hes> please someone hurry up in. Give me a pair of con as so you can. I mean honestly. I really deeply hope that their workshop continues. You'll be so great it for you know to you know if you're living in new york long enough then and hang out with your workshop long enough that you'll be able to actually see all now that would be really great right yeah yeah. I'm looking for if i'm not here. I'm flying back. I tell you that much. You should anything else that we need to discuss any last minute plugs for anything anyone's doing. I will say that on september twenty second. It's the broadway flea market. <hes> broadway cares as i could fights aids. <hes> it's a lot of fun. It's on forty fourth and forty fifth street and then along shubert alley. <hes> shows have tables theater companies table. Some of it's like literally people are emptying out their apartments and they're like by my old john and some of it's like boxes and boxes of playbills and really cool who'll stuff and signed stuff and i last time i was there. I missed last year but the year before that i bought <hes> a love never dies note pad which is the terrible terrible sequel to the phantom of the opera that never made its way here right. I know it never made it. There was a there was a tour i think last hour okay of love never dies but they filmed it in australia and if you wanna see something very incredibly terrible. I suggest watching it if you like broadway emerged. There's always cools always like lovely. The public has a table. There's definitely old cast albums and public works t-shirts and all kinds of fun stuff and occasionally hamilton goodies. Oh i don't think there's much left and they always have a table though and like you know they actors have shows obviously in that name but people will come out sometimes <hes> the past two years. <hes> tyne daly has had her own table. It's like selling stuff and you're like aids daily hanging out at broadway fleet. It's great. It's a good time and as i said it benefits <hes> broadway cares equity fights aids which is a great like sort of umbrella organization that supports a lot of other smaller organizations no. I'm only give a little not signature theatre this upcoming season. They're going to have five playwrights as they often do. Four are women of color color so that's a real shifts <hes> and so. I'm really excited. They're bringing back. Anna deavere smith <hes>. They're going going to have a <hes> lauren yeah. Some of you might remember. We talked about cambodian wrong glance here so coming. It's coming coming katori hall <hes>. Who did the mountain top sheet tobago so she's doing the hot wing king an it's a comedy. That's really fabulous. Chores been gone from new york for too long. I mean afternoon her and then also dominique morris l._a. Confederates and you know they're also doing not to leave him but horn floyd who they've done previously why non on he's the one of the young man from atlanta but i'm just so excited. We talked about a shift but they are really doing yeah so i will be there. <hes> this season as incredible directors to on that season yeah addition to folks you. Steve broaden ax is going to be direct air so they're really they're also supporting a lot of great directors policy email lee camilo for before fed apollo theater yeah. I mean like it just incredible yeah. The signature is really doing the thing right ford ball yeah. They have on their ticket initiative all tickets for thirty five dollars for initial run so accessibility when we talk about it. They're doing that too and just to say what the one thing i. I think maybe hardly most excited about its signature but as you mentioned they're doing an interview. Smith's play three of them. Which if you don't know anna deavere smith's documentary solo work like <hes> twenty angeles incredible incredible artists but historically all those places. She has performing her own work in them. This is the first time i think in a wild that that there will be other per. She will not be in the show. Other performers will be performing. These at i literally cannot imagine you know someone other than anna not doing it. It's not to say that's a bad thing. I do you know the legacy has to be passed on. It and it's important that it's done while while she's here yeah absolutely yeah. It's sort of like the future production of what the constitution means to me by heidi track. I celebrated completing broadway run. <hes> you know heidi's not going to perform that anymore. Yeah and someone else is gonna play. Heidi actually can't wait to see someone else's because it's such it's so heidi i believe that so looking forward to having my horizons anyway title show same thing those actors to to see deceived device to that piece. Yes and you know somebody else plays deceived to deceive deceive to solve with my ought to love it. I want to thank ben fervor for him because he's been bad here on the on the knobs.

218. Marisha Wallace - It wasnt made for us

"I would not take it back. It set me up to have this monument moment that i'm having now which is like a mountain top experience like after you've been through all the valleys and all the work and you like climbing climate climbing and get to the top you. Oh wow i've made. I've made it so a mountaintop. Then you just start climbing again. You are listening to made of also known as the mole pod. Podcast hosted by sophie shaken. Who is a danish comedian. I am so excited about this episode. I have wants to get marisha. Wada's on this podcast past for literally years. We tried it a few years ago. And i was meant to go backstage at dreamgirls where she played efi. And obviously that's the dream I know of course. My french had bianca's who's been on this podcast a three or four times He let me go backstage at both hansen and aladdin when he was playing that. And it's like a dream come true who loves musicals so i would love to go backstage at dreamgirls. Oh my god but we didn't make it happen. Russia is an has always been super busy. Because she's a proactive. Talent said sought after person she played effie in dreamgirls and was the stand-ins used to stand in full and riley. But if you can hand the background that's the sound of my dog running for straight to the back and forth. Because i believe i believe someone seeing a bud or cat that he wants to play who does not want to play with him which is very sad and i relate overnight some feeling anxiety got sick i believe and i remember everyone talking about municipalities to michelle in the conversation as well. I remember just hearing about how you should go. And see dreamgirls to catch the stand-in because marisha was so phenomenal. And i since then followed her on social media and i've always wanted to talk to that she's great so i'm very excited about this episode. It's it was a couple of hours before they announced that biden had won the election so we were still in a state of what's going to happen we don't really know fingers crossed and the thank god. Things are tiny bit better now. Obviously by this not pethick. I would say that. No politicians Especially ones that are not inherently socialist Darrow say communist. He's a man's old white man. Is what seventy seventy nine or something. I'm not gonna. But the point is less that he won in mode trump lost which is set to that. The last tragic loss was in two thousand sixteen. And like that. No no no would you doing. Don't buy so. That's their last memory of off election wrong. But where in the uk we have brexit and what sue jenolan actions that we also lost and then we also suffered from the loss of the sixteen us election so for has gone through so many You know elections where we've had hoped that the good side would win and they haven't so i think the space to feel relief that it's at least not going in the other direction which is such a tiny things to be grateful for but nevertheless gotta take what you can get at these in the assigns so will let you listen to my chat with marisha. I am continuing to get the best out of this lockdown. As i possibly can by doing i'm gonna do book packages against selling my book. assigned Selling signed copies of my book in these packages and i am doing online shows. I'm selling shows that. I've already recorded in dan. My instagram is more active than it. Probably should be if you look at all the things that i'm neglecting to do. Instead and physically goes my website goes my my social media. I am over the pace. And i would love to catch up to just. That's left for you to support my so. I am not it. Isn't sue the incredible beautiful vice like one of the best vice i've ever had. Oh my note. Please injections episode with the incredible marisha was first of all the people who might not know who you i. Would you like to introduce yourself i. I'm marisha wallis. And i'm originally from goldsboro north carolina but I came to the uk. Four years ago. I've been on broadway west end. You probably seen me as sterilizing keys. Rather days and a ladder The movie and on broadway and curtin. The i am supposed to play motormouth in hairspray. I've done waitress dreamgirls things. And now i a recording artist with universal and. I have an album coming out very soon. So that's me in a nutshell. Think amazing and where a we have a thousand questions about that but just for context in case someone listens to this in a. Yeah a two years when we speaking like. Where are you in your life. Where are we in the world right now. I'm currently living in london I live in greenwich and Yeah i have been here for about four years now and it doesn't let them leaving anytime soon. So many things to do here so it's just been exciting to be an american living abroad. How you feeling at the moment. It's well if the election right now so when people listen to this election is still up in the air which is crazy. I think this is the longest is ever taken to Get results back. And it's the first time they've ever counted every boat. Because i always do absentee Voting and i feel like my never really counts because you know by time it gives there or whatever even if it rise on the day. They're just godson but this time they're going through counting every single vote which is absolutely incredible was incredible. It hasn't been the gnome as well. I don't know but it is will. There's a lot that's happening. That's changing that You know the dark forces don't want to change because they have done voter suppression for years against the black community you low income communities. I'm how they district get out. So they can push it into their favor and people like stacey. Abrams have been working for years tire. Sleep the past four years to change that am all. Her changes have come to fruition. Because now georgia is blue for the first time in. Twenty seven years is blue democratic which is insane. That's amazing. how's it feel being far away from it. It feels like an out of body experience because like you know when you lived in a house for so long you don't see all of its flaws you don't see all of it it's because you're training that the house is beautiful and that nothing goes wrong in. This house is the best house on the street. And when you get outside of the house and you look at the house oh hey. The foundation is cranky. The shingles falling off things are happening. So that's how. I kind of feel being far away from it is to see it from a different perspective and i think america has been covering up its problems for years and just selling us because it's very kind of commercial. It sells you. This dream of what america is instead of selling. What america actually is. I think we're facing those demons now head on now that we've had to stop because the coronavirus and so But now we're finally facing it and it's been kind of very hard actually to see it enters to be in another country where they actually do have nhs and are taking care of their people in that way. It's just a whole different perspective. i think. Yeah it's it's. I remember being at school and from denmark. So and then we would learn about we would then less about the. Us would learn more about how people in the us were taught about the us. If that makes sense there's a lot of these kids at tot that the. Us is the best country in the world and we denver would be like what you shouldn't say that to people cus that's not a healthy to have a a weird idea that you're the best and i'll teach us would be like. Yeah we know this is probably not the end. It's crazy like in some ways. It's the confidence that you have as an american is good for business. Because like you do feel like you can take on the whole world because you feel like you can go from being nothing to something which is a good ideal but i think it turns sour when you should on other places because to make yourself feel the most powerful and i think that's where it loses its power to may because i think they kind of isolated themselves almost from the rest of the world there are so many people in america will never traveled mike. My family didn't have passports until last year. When i got them passports so they you come here like issues. Not even install instilled in you to leave which i think is like what but for me. I never thought of that as a negative until i left so it was. It's interesting place. It has the people are what make beautiful. I feel like if you take all the craziness out there. Some amazing people in their very talented very like hard working people like they. They work really hard but now they're just trying to be like why. Why are we working this hard for. What are we going to get anywhere or we're gonna just keep working ourselves into the ground. I am from what i know about you. And your career what. I have been so fascinated by interested in is the sort of the proactiveness and the way that you've tackled the challenges so you Correct wrong you were the under study in dreamgirls full was it amber riley. Yeah and i don't know how much i remember. The in this sort of feeds go us circles. There was all this talk about how amber riley was actually quite rally there. So you had to step up Mo- than an understudy usually would at and then i remember this ripple effect with people saying mickey go on day. One and barack isn't there. Because you want to see. And i want so when it was shoe because i really wanted to see that that just that seems so row. How often do you go to show just as he the under study. you know. It doesn't happen that often the last time. I heard it is with sutton foster because sutton foster wasn't supposed to be mealy thoroughly modern italy there was another girl when they were out of town and she was the understudy and another girl got sick and she went on. She was amazing and everyone was like wait. So eventually ended up taking over the part and then became sutton foster so like i hadn't heard that story in a really long time and also to a different country where people don't know me and people know amber from glee and mike. When i go up there they would be like. I think it's going to be ambra. And i would come out using an amber will come out. They'd be like. Oh then. I come out and they be late stages because they yeah 'cause they were expecting ambush not there and they don't have any announcements here to tell you which is not going to be there but by the end of act one. Everyone was literally on their feet crying screaming in here. They do not. They don't give everybody standing ovation of Were not like america where we clap for everything. We're like you to the bathroom. Yeah now so here. Like to get a standing ovation. It was happening like every night. It's like a phenomenon and Yeah it just blew up. And then i just really. I'm all about taking your moments and just running with them. I knew this was my opportunity. I knew it even before when they told me you're going to london. This is it. If i don't run as fast as i can with this opportunity. I'm not gonna opportunity again. This is like this. The moment defining moment i was only supposed to be there three weeks just to cover the The sickness and I stayed announced wants to be on one one day a week and then it turned into eight shows a week and then i was there all the time i was on all the time and it was hard because it was like almost like ambers sickness which was so bad was my come up so it was kind of like bittersweet. Almost it made me feel. I don't feel like i could actually be happy for it in some ways. I'm getting there now. Because i'm like okay. That was you know. Obviously that was my chance. But it's like hard when you see someone else's downfall is your come up in a way and i'm just like a such a big supporter of women that it was just that was definitely difficult to watch into to be a part of in like there were times. I was singing at award shows where she was nominated for the part so i didn't get a lot of credit for like what i did and like i got. I was watching her when alleviate award. And i just like wow. It was such a humbling experience and also just to be like sometimes. It's not your time. Sometimes it's not your moment and sometimes what you're doing is setting yourself up for your big big moment. That's an even bigger than that so like. That's what i keep telling myself even on the holidays. Where i'm like i longer killing myself. I don't get any awards. No one gives me like a pat on. The only way that i did get was Mazing fans and the support. That i had which literally has carried me through to this point. Yeah what was the. What was it like the first time knowing that you had to go out and they were expected because this is you know this is not thousand. I don't how many two thousand people don't have any big city for people hundred. Yeah but like on a to show data like twenty four hundred people. You have to go. Most it would be the most human thing to be super scat and su beat apologetic. But it's such an apologetic role terrified. Did you just sort of power. I i worked on broadway for seven years and we are destroying to dislike. Go in and smash it because it's like you know it's your opportunity to shine like if you do well like there's so many good things that will come from it but it was definitely terrifying like it was scary but i knew i was ready. I knew that i for me. It was kind of more. Like let me sean. What gonna do like going into a game like going like sport or whatever. Let me show them what i can do. Let me show them that. I might be the best thing to happen to them that day. That they didn't get samper. They got the saw main. So i think that was kind of my thing but the whole experience of dreamgirls really did some crazy. Things of mental health like it was the hardest thing mentally. I always felt like. I was auditioning always felt like i was 'cause i was second choice. And you know what. I mean like in actuality. I'm second choice. Even though i've done so well even everyone loved me. You just never shake that feeling of being second choice so you're always trying to prove yourself and trying to go extra there when you probably should have been out sick but you were there because you're like on the hero. I'm supposed to be there and like that. I was going through a divorce at the same time than second year. It was is some of the hardest things that i've been through but i would not take it back like it was it. Set me up to have this monument moment that une having now which is like a mountain top experience like after you've been through all the valleys and all the work. An elliott like climbing climate climbing. Get to the top A while i've made made it says amount and then you start climbing again. We'll we'll definitely have to talk about that. I wanna have two questions about this. I which is How regular is that experience for you. In general in musical theater as a as a black woman and in a like a well. It's probably changing a bit now. I think like the so many musicals. Which is phil women. Yeah it's it it wasn't made for us. That's what i have to keep reminding myself when. I hit a roadblock unlike. This actually was not made for us so me trying to come in. Change is hard because it wasn't designed for us to win. It was never put in place for us. It wasn't a made for our demographic it wasn't made for it wasn't like this not what eater was made so to accept that and be like look i'm in here trying to change the institution that was not made for me. That's what is the the hurtful part but also the heroine part is because you're like okay. I have to come in and try to change something. That's been this way for thousands of years or wherever how long has been. I'm trying to change it. So that it i included in this narrative. So that's the that's what. I've just been doing everything that i'm doing. I'm like i'm literally breaking down walls and barriers and making space where there has been no space and i was like because of me. There will be other girls who look like me. Who are big girls who are black girls who are poor or whatever came from wherever background will be able to do it because they see the i can do it and that's what people have done for me in the past but in the theater is just if the roles are so few and far between which got efi motormouth and i've played them all last maggie like so now is all about creating new like what is going to be the original. What is going to be a role where you're not talking about raise or talking about your weight where you're just like a normal person like i am a real life. I don't go around being like whoa. I'm fed. I can't believe this person left me. You just like this. I am i okay. Great not advocate. Because i am a server sometimes like when i think back you know i was fat from. I was tiny child a sudden one day. I realized i have never tried. Like i've never not had to fight somehow. And then you know when you. If i feel like it often happens when you reach that level of why am i always tyrod was when you have those moments of like. Oh could it just for once. Just once be a bit easy on my god literally like just on friday like because i'm now going to industry of the record industry now which is a whole nother beast of another place where it wasn't made for us or where it was made for us but only in the way that they want it to be like the only way that they want to present black women is how is accepted like we only get a cardi b. We only get a meg. The stallion why don't we have a black sweeney on. Why don't we have a black adele. Why we have a black the opposite site like we don't get we don't get that chance is only they wanna show was ghetto angry. That's all they're going to serve us. We don't get the other side. Because i think okay cardi. I love cardi b. That's great but the reason why we have matt cardi because they're like that doesn't represent black women. I was like they're not showing you all the other ones. So you feel like oh yes. She's a disgrace blah blah blah blah. But i'm like no. She's not she's being herself. And that's because you don't see any other role model beside her. Of course you feel like that. And i don't even think she wants to be a role model to anybody. Choose wants to be herself. But there's women out here like me who i do want the role model for girls and want to be a positive role model that they can look up to. That are not afraid like you can play my music in. it's okay. Listen to it is made for them. Whatever but i think they just In this industries are and. I was crying the other day and i was like. Why am i just so exhausted. I was on tired of fighting. I'm fighting against racism. I'm fighting against that via on fighting against Being a woman like a finding against like old ways like it's just it's a lie and america get so tired because you just want to. What you all the stuff that you don soapy like. You've done such amazing things. Amanda if you could good that with all the oppression like how think of that. You have flown like this. Imagine your career would be if you didn't have all that holding you back. Yeah because it just be based on your merit and not on your physical attributes and at the same time Expecting you to have the energy and the positivity of someone who has nothing held against them so you have to wait the same hours if not more and you have to you know whenever you complain all seem angry or anything like that you sort of acetone it down a bit because you know he's not complaining of course he's not complaining. What does the to complain about nothing. The world's four so that i could walk through doors that are just like wide open. And i'm over here having to take a sledgehammer knock the door down to go through the same door that they just walked. Will you held the door open for them. It's hard like i have gone through. 'cause when i i got this record deal during lockdown so i was in so many zoom meetings with like heads of labels from two different major major record labels and i would just tell them i was like this is your chance to be on the right side of history. This is your chance to do opposite of what we think. You're going to do bike. This is your chance to change how the music industry works and functions to promote a person like me up to the front like miss them. That does it. It's like you don't know about anything unless they say that it's there. You don't care about an artist unless they care about them. So i i definitely have some good people on my team. There's like people who do wanna make change so. I hope i'm praying like hoping we will. We will make some changes in like rock. This place people like lisera already doing it. So if she can do it do it. Amazing this is going to be. This is such a cringe question and i think very much by as by a lot of movies when i asked this when i i feel embarrassed by asking this when you do sing is that is that purely a professional thing that you enjoy or do you also gets who express all feel. The energy of all of your frustrations like is it. Also it is like meditation as a okay. No no real. You can like well. When i sang everyone is dead. Quiet like they literally go silent and they all up to the edge of their secrecy. Them they all come to agency and our decide what is about to happen and then when i start singing. They're just entranced like that for the whole five minutes of the song or whatever and to have that kind of power to be able to get let people put down their phones and we're all having this moment together fizzles religious like sometimes when i like a spiritual thing to have everyone be swept up in these chords in the lyrics and how i'm saying introduced for five minutes to not think about what's going on in their life but to be completely engrossed in the store that i'm telling this song that is it's just nothing like it Just recently i got to do festival of remembrance which will be airing tonight. But i don't know where this will come out you'll be able to say later I got asked to do that. last. Minute. 'cause katherine jenkins cleaner got cohen. So she had to isolate so they called me with hours notice to go out there and sing the white cliffs of dover and like i heard this song that i know of the song but you know if you never sang it. You're like okay. Now go singing six nine. And so i learned the song car like fully alert. Because you know you know. The course. But i had to learn the versus in everything in a bridge and everything so and i got my makeup hair on and i was singing at the roller in front of this whole with this with the queen's royal military band and like i was there and and i'm replacing someone who is like the princess of of the uk caffeinated casino like any royal things. She's there and to have me occur. Black african american woman opening the festival of remembrance. All those military people crying at my voice. Like what is that. you'd like. That is nothing that compares to that that was like an out of body experience. But that just shows you what music can do. It was almost kinda was like. I'm going to show you. Why should have been the first choice. But also i'm going to show you that it doesn't matter what you look like. The music speaks for you like the music speaks for itself so those a long answer but the ask that one. That was just a beautiful experience of seeing how music can like change. People change their minds stoppings. Did you have the that you always know. This was in your future like when your child young teenager. Did you know that your future wisconsin neglect this. I did sort of like. I've always wanted to do film like i was a kid. We would have options of how we want to our book. Reports like read a book. And i would always choose the option where you could do a commercial for the book or you can make a tv show about the book. I we get my uncle to bring that big camp because we have. I won't go. We have that big box camera. Even let me use and i would shoot videos like even when i was a kid which is so crazy which is like before youtube and all that stuff. But i've always wanted to do. I would do accents. When i was a kid like that was my thing but i always wanted anew. I could do at jason. Oh how at didn't know how because there's no one is no 'cause like oh. How do i become famous singer. Hey go let sousa lead now is just kinda like i just kept going. Let's let me just keep pushing forward and thanks to happen. You remember the first time you realize you're vice could have such deep effect on people. I think when. I sung. And i'm telling you i had a pageant. I was in high school and i it. I'm telling you i'm not going at pageant and like everyone was like whoa. What is that now. His courtesy part. I didn't win. Pretty pick the pretty blonde girl who you know. Who is my friend. Xers like one best friends jessica. But they picked her. And you know. You're like wow that gave me my first taste of likes. It doesn't fucking matter row. Well you've done that's always gonna be a thing. But then i sang it again at a north carolina. Idol is a. They would give you a chance to go do american idol and i wan- and the girl was like a house up against what's going to win like based on her last performance. Because but i haven't sang that song yet. And then i sang that song and i won and i was like whoa okay. This is like. I have a song on the radio. The whole thing and i was like. Oh okay i might actually do this and throughout college i were to buy work professionally tune college and then it just started growing up. I feel like my voice has grown over the years like my voice from then to now like night and day just stronger and stronger and stronger and stronger. And i've just learned so much like every performance. Everything i just wanted to be better and that was the thing with amber thing. I always felt like. I never leaves her. She has amazing voice. Bob i was like i have something to. What is the thing that i have that makes people want to come watch me instead of watch her and then harnessed. It was like it's authenticity. It is acting. It is the thing that i study for years that i know how to do very very well. I was like that's my killing field. The full package go with that and once you figure out the thing that makes you special. You're unstoppable. you are unstoppable. It would be so normal to have had that experience again and again of being second choice and not winning and having all those sort of setbacks realizations that like you said doesn't fucking matter it would be so normal and natural if you if you were scared not scattered. If you were reluctant to help anyone get up in stand up and all the woman was scared because there was only room for one so there was very little help help others and i and i remember feeling it to that. You get scared when another woman is on the bill because own no now. What if they take my place. And that's you know that's how the patriarchy works. That's why they do it. You know so that you don't help each other so they're keeps just being one place but how how do you. I mean it's such a weird question to ask how you still supporting of women. which is you know retain. All it's hard. I feel like i have been fighting like that. Jealousy and that competitiveness from other women for years. And i was doing my damnedest to like be like even when new episodes with tom i would. Just try to befriend them somehow. It would always get nasty because there's just so much there's no space like when there's no space to grow all. The weeds are just wrapped tangled into each other. We can't be are full flower because there's no space to grow and i had to stop being jealous of other women and that's when my career took off when i put on my blinders and was like i don't care what she's doing. I don't care what they're doing over there on just running against myself. I wanna be better than i was yesterday. And also just not holding grudges. I think that's what women do. They even win. Other women treat you badly which attacking to me so many times even when i like giving them close my back or bought them things or whatever to not hold it because it only poisons you and also have to look at people from their circumstance and look at them through the lens of their mental health issues as well. 'cause i see it so much black women and kirby when we come with this armor that we have built since we were little to protect ourselves from being hurt and that's that arm of on fierce on amazing. You can't like you not better than me. You never going to be better than me. But that's from trauma does not come from that person's heart that's because they're trying to stop you before you get to them and if the patriarchy would allow us to have space to be and grow than we might be able to do something i mean. I always feel that. Like even when i see i used to see other black girls winning and i'd be like why am i not there or whatever then i had to change my whole perspective. I was like. I can't focus on them because i can't do what they do and they can't do what i do. They taught us that we were same. But we're not. We're very very different. And once you harness that thing that is special about you and run with that instead of focusing what you don't have and what you not do win or this one got that and that got this who cares. That's what is for them as for them. And what's for you is for you and if you go into life with that and not being jealous and not being nasty not talking bad about your fellow person like even with all the shit that went on with dreamgirls. I still try to be kind to amber. Like i want it to have a relationship with her where we could talk and that it wasn't about that like that. The work was outside of the sisterhood. That we should have. You know what i mean. Which is it's hard it's hard. It's definitely hard and there's definitely been some girls in my career. Where i felt that as i wish that we could have gotten past those things to just support each other applicant. We would just be so much further. And that's why they that's why the system works away does because they didn't want to sue we've all fighting each other instead of. Actually you know all pushing ahead which is why are women like this. I literally i. It baffles me. Because it's like man. I do feel like it's getting better though i do. And i feel like i have to be a catalyst for someone treats me bad. I i need to like push past that or talk about it. An end squash it like just like end it. That we hold grudges for years. She said this about seven years ago. Or what i. I how the hottest thing is when someone says. Can you recommend someone for this job. And you know that your enemy would be perfect for it and you're like okay. Yes i do and you have to recognise. That will hard. That's the go okay. I have to do this now. I have to be this person who says yes. She's available but then also. Where does the line go as well. Because it's like. Do you allow people to keep treating you like crap. Or that's tough as tough as you're like is that person just a bad person or they just hurt person. So that's what there's also if they ahead. how much does that actually justify. Also being a bad person you know they can be. You can understand someone head but if they're not doing the work themselves if they are not willing to acknowledge that they are doing bad things at some point you will have to say i get your head but i also can't be a part of this until you figure you don't and that's how you get the separate yourself sometime as well and just be like that person is just not not for me. They're not my tribe is what i say. Not part of my tribe. This partisan announces tribe is not far my try. And that's okay but that doesn't mean shit on them. You just let them go. Yeah it's just like that's the thing we like. We don't get along with someone we're like. Okay i'm gonna shit on that person so that they know i don't like them but if you just let them go to be like gus you over there this is me over here a spine. I'm all about peace. 'cause is like i can't work in a place of negative energy. It is really hard for me. I'm all about having positive vibes around my space. And when it's isn't when it's something that is not serving me. I have to let it go. You good at being alone with yourself. Now i am with all this Colbert I broke up with my ex and i have lived with him for ten years. Wow and then. I was in a new country alone and it was like some of the hardest times to just be alone. I think the scariest part where sore raid to be alone with ourselves into be okay with okay. I don't have them in right now. Or i don't have partner right now. Or whatever a nasa k. Like it's okay to be alone. I think once you figure that out you can be a better partner because you can. You can be by yourself. You know what you want. you know. 'cause there was i didn't even know what i want. I didn't even know what certain foods i liked. I was like do i like this because he liked it or did i like because i actually like it like. How do you know how. I like to spend my free time. And so that's what's been great about this lockdown as like getting to know myself again to be like. Oh i'm not just a you know a walking talking singing musical robot. I'm i'm actually a real person who likes to do other things. And i think that's actually helped. Elevate me because i have a life outside of all of this which is so good and you've managed. Which is i feel like when you when you know about creative people knew see how each one of those people have handled a function throughout the lockdown. Which at the point this recording has been on and off since matt. So that's what single nate Forever and you have been so you know you suddenly blew up on. Take tog and you started making all these videos. You're a senior to so many online and now the album. So do you think pad of this constant having to fight and having to work on yourself in what had has that. Made you a proactive person. Who's not expecting things to just be sort of dropped into your lap. Absolutely like i learned Very early on that. This is gonna be a fight already. Knew already I've been told not famous enough of untold. My voice isn't the best. I've been told that my skinny now does not enough. And then i said you know what i'm not gonna have any of those kind of people being control of my success. I'm gonna controlled my success. If i don't make the opportunity is not gonna be there. If i don't show people that i can't do it without them. They're not going to do it for me. That's what i was like. I can make this album without you. But i want you as a partner do not. I mean That was kind of changing your of going from like wanting to be wanted to making yourself a commodity. That's what i was like. I'm gonna make myself so wanted that. Then i could charge whatever price that i want. And that's the difference of like begging for your off and then making your own space. I was like atlantic greatest space. We have this beautiful tool of social media. You can get to anybody anywhere in the world that you want. But you can't be afraid you have to put yourself out there and throw stuff at the wall and they will stick. I was like. I'm gonna make fifteen second voiceless and see what happens and then two weeks later have over sixty thousand followers in two weeks but if you build it they will come and wanting to do brandon -dorsements and now. They're all coming to me. Because i was like i want to go taste that from the now. They're all coming to me. Which is amazing. You know how hard it is out here. Social media land to try to like fight for a space. And i think it's just not being afraid just can't be afraid anymore. We're taught you know you. Gotta you've gotta be looked like this or sound like this. Do like this and it's not true best serving. It's not true. The people actually buy things and the people who actually subscribed name the people who actually follow you. They don't care about that shit if they connect you they connect to you and they pressed the button that there's no inbetween person being like the really wanna do that dan. I don't know is that no. It's just like i like that. Boom done albums called tomorrow. And it's out on december fourth. Tell me about it so my album.

They left they were like we loved your version. We're going to keep you so. I'm gonna be on the album soundtrack. Which will be coming out. Probably this week. Which i'm so excited about how i feel like it's somewhat again. This is a bit of a wanka thing to say. But i feel like it's somewhat symbolic of what is happening and this is probably way too optimistic but i feel like it shows what happens when you suddenly a pushed to the edge or you. Ah push to realize that hang on. I can't get things done. You know the power of of realizing that it's all the system that's designed to hold you down and that you actually fighting against something bigger than just the other women in your dressing room or whatever it is and in the things that happened from that are enormous. And as soon as you actually do something you mentioned stacey april aprons abrahams abram ginning and the example of someone like that. Who has made a huge thing happen. I i'm pretty hopeful. Space of mind at the moment because he might actually win this power things that will once once we do radical all of this terribleness in the well they they will not have to stand on now because this is like the resilience and the strength and the realization of the power. That you actually have. We have so much power like when you harnessed power and you don't listen to the haters or the naysayers because they are there to stop you because i was called the light the dark forces the light forces are there like they're there to they want to win. The dark forces are also there to stop you because they know if you win than the life forces are like yeah. We did it. we'd be so i was like. Don't let them be. Stacy has been hard at work alone. People didn't even really know about her worldwide or knew that for years she was out here grafting out. She's another kirby black black group reports neighborhood in that state out here grafting for chain for a country that has disenfranchised her cheese out. You're trying to save. The democracy will country. Who doesn't even want to say her. That shows you how much how dedicated black women are two excellent how dedicated we are changing this world. A we was saying country. That wouldn't even want to save us. I think that's incredible. I think it also shows that like you keep working. You keep doing your thing. 'cause she didn't get the repeat nomination. Dilemma that get it. And i'm not gonna say this but i think it's because of how she looked i really do and maybe she i don't know and she's the most qualified. She's up here. save the whole election. As if they don't give women the highest position making bind in that cabinet Deserves everything but look how. Like if you just look at the book in the Look at the cobb book. You wouldn't even you would miss out on this amazing woman who could change an election. Because you're so focused on what the out outer part looks like that is crazy to me. They've missed out on an amazing person. But i hope they will see air for ways because she has come through but she's amazing. Yeah i really hope so. You should have had. It's such a long time ago. But yeah but i'd go positive you say has been like what's happening in. The world is made us reexamine who were promoting who were glorifying. Now like i feel like people who haven't had that chance to be glorified in the ways today. Deserve are getting their chance there moment because people were like wait a minute we gotta give somebody else a chance. You can't keep up lifting the same three black women forever and in calling ourselves eggers. That's not how it works is like no. We need more like there. Should be more sophie higgins. seven of. Y'all i mean how is crazy. That'd be twenty marriages by all of their islands. I wanna ask the last question and And then i'm gonna have you plug all your stuff and then after that. I'm going to ask you a six extra questions for the for the pains again but the last question that i always ask this guy. You're in the delivery room and you have just been bone okay but you now are also there so you now are in the living room in your holding teeny tiny marisha in your hands. And she's crying. Okay because home room and all lovely ozone is a now. She's out as lights and sounds and people as like. What is this is this life is life is gonna mean full of lights and sounds with. That's not nice and she looks at you like what is this going to be. What's going to happen and you can't change anything so you can't give advice but you know exactly what's going to happen and all that will happen regardless of what you say. What she just wants to know is what's going to happen was going to be like and you can answer that. What would you say to teeny tiny baby. You i would say baby you. You're going to go through a lot of things that are going to change your life for the better. Even though those things might feel like they're going to destroy you or stop you or keep you from getting to where you want to be in your little life you'll get there and don't let anyone tell you that you can do it like they're gonna be so many people who say you can but there's gonna be a thousand other people who say you can so listen to the. Can people listen to the people rooting you on. Don't listen to three people who say you can't listen to all these support people who are out there cheering for you and don't forget who you are. Don't forget that you don't have to hide. You won't ever have to hide again. You'll be able to live in your full power. Glory and don't shrink yourself. There's gonna be times where people are gonna say you need to be quite. You need to be smaller. Unidas tip back. Don't allow them to do that.

retro AMT192

"Welcome to retro me this one hundred and ninety two, originally from the Thirteenth Tober twenty eleven really made me want to watch the wiz again still haven't seen the WIZ. Now, surely more than ever is the time to watch the wiz. It's available on Amazon for three pence forty nine to rent I. Think so. You know you can afford that. That's good for three pounds forty nine I. Mean it's not a good film as I say in this episode, but it's still definitely worth seeing. They did a live recording of the Wiz a couple of years ago with a common and amber Riley in it I. Think Queen Latifah as well really good cost so my. Bearing in mind it is an adaptation of a film, which itself is a sequel to film, which itself is not at Tation of a book. I think you're a bit too far away when you're watching the rebooted life performance fine by me I just want homeopathic version of. This episode all this chat about going to museums and going on holiday and being Disney park does not seem distant right now for second thing. Should we putting this out now? Because it might make, people feel wistful, so whistle for the syphilitic waxwork museums of Vienna. Actually okay, so let's have this conversation now. When we recorded this in two thousand eleven, you'd never been to a Disney park. Yes, now you have yes. What was your trip to Disney? Like what did you think listening to? This person's question wasn't reflective of my experience. Disney I saw astonishingly few child meltdowns at all, and like it's a long day. Did see people carrying around very exhausted looking children, but didn't see or hear tantrums, some magic and messages pumping son of sedative gas into the air which you wouldn't put, pass them. But what did you make the attractions? Well I had a great time for the first few hours, and then I started overthinking the corporate -ness of it, because as I star wars area, 'cause Disney bought star wars and they are this enormous conglomerates started overthinking that. I should clarify actually to Disney fans. Let me Alan was at the original Disneyland. California that's where you went, isn't it? You didn't do California adventure. Just the original magic kingdom, yeah, just magic kingdom really enjoyed very impressed by the queuing and not supporting sel thing to say, but is just really remarkable. Done the Q. Staging. They've been working on it for fifty years. They know how to their experts. Did you do the classics though you did parts of the Caribbean Space Mountain The Caravan. Space Mountain right now is my favorite. Because the star wars ride which I hate, eggs involve audience, participation, which is. Fine I mean I haven't done that. I done the original star tours which they replaced with that right, so I'm not interested in stores, and I particularly envy but I imagine the detail must have been incredible incredible. I'm not interested. Install was either, but the whole area was extraordinarily so fair play to them, but just don't make me do things with people in costumes I did wonder when we were listening to that Disney question from that guy who was like I don't have children's up into Disney park. I wondered whether he has now had children or whether his. Is Continuing yes, or whether they have mutually agreed not to have children yet. Get in touch with us. If you listing let us know when we re released this retro episode in Ten Years Time. Maybe we'll get back to your feedback. It's not though to think because one of them will have had to make a compromise possibly, but I mean actually what happens. Is that often over time, isn't it? What was interesting about their relationship? Because the age gap, the age, at which naturally his attitudes might soften, might come pass the biological peak of his wife. That was the issue, wasn't it? But nonetheless perhaps the intensity of the situation forced him to. Carefully Kathleen come to conclusion within a year that was different to the one that he said actually something I was right about which is rare, so I think I should mention is that we're talking about the youtube video the zoo the original youtube video. Yeah, what a Yona and commenting on the fact that at the time in twenty eleven only had five point seven nine million views, and you said there are key of Awesome Keisha parodies have got more than that which you're right about the time, but I was saying jared guy who uploaded that. He's playing the long game of looked. The Kiva with some ketchup parody video you mentioned. It has fifty seven million views. May Zoo now at nearly one hundred million? So I feel validated there so I think term. I'm right. It's going to overtake it substantially. Yeah, well, I think probably the first video on Youtube has more cultural capital than the. Them talking about like decades from now which is going to be a museum? Yes, we do also consider whether it is a good idea to have youtube comments under the videos and I think the intervening eight and a half years has only increased my thought that not particularly helpful. Yes, but actually I'd go further and say essentially social media has become youtube comments during this section. You do say word that is bad, but I think you'll doing it to quote the kind of Youtube comments that are common best right. Retard and I say without qualifying. That is not a word that I wouldn't use myself I. Think I think at the time I was assuming it would be implicitly obvious that I am contractually criticizing those who thoughtlessly use that word, but you're right. In these times I would probably feel the need to insert that qualification, I also later equally say man up. Which again I think I'm sort of saying an inverted commas, but again in twenty twenty I just wouldn't say it at all. You could non with a double end up. I also wonder whether now we would do a question which is predicated on Russian women being hot ahead that I thought. You would probably do that question. Just know, include that observation unchallenged. You know it's just sort of dismissing all of womanhood from Russia as sex objects basically. Anyway these are small small regrets I feel. Do you have any yeah, not bad actually? I didn't even hate my own voice must. Passed the pivot. Pivot somewhere in two thousand and ten. Good yes, what a triumph! We should say! Thank you to squarespace for sponsoring this upset of answer me this and thank you for making it easy for you guys to make lovely websites. I think there's enough on our minds at the moment that just one thing being a double is a help that's right. You don't need to know how any of it works behind the scenes. It's actually quite reassuring, I. Find to remind myself of all the things I don't understand about how websites work that squarespace just much does to me like for example I. Don't know what clean indexing is I dunno automatic tagging is i. don't know what Google rich image searches I don't need to. It's all just going on behind the scenes. If only they could take care of some other things that you don't understand if I could do my counts, I'd be so grateful. Oh my gods! Could they take a decent passport photo of me? Decent impossible photos, but look haunted haunted old a little ill. Yeah well I mean obviously. People's terrible possible photos is a great idea for you. Know Funds Quest by sight. You could set up very easily. You could do such thing for free right now. By going to squarespace dot com slash answer and having to play around with the two week free trial, and then if you decide to keep this idea, because you think people are always going to have hideous passbook photos to share then you can get ten sent off your first purchase of a website or domain. If you use code answer, I should say as well if you do stick around to the end of the episode you'll hear is promoting the answer me this jigsaw. Don't head. Excite me. They do no longer exist. I'm afraid. Yes. I think but also the whole answering. This fun page doesn't access because fun doesn't exist. I'm joking extent. That's kind of true. It was reasonable to have fun in twenty in two thousand and twenty. It's you've got to be careful when you're having fun. Childish thing. Now love. But something that does exist of course. If you head over to this store dot, com is a repository of where you can buy I two hundred episodes of which this is one. Yes, indeed and also you can get on six six exclusive albums, which are like our long themed specials onto me this.

And of course are very latest release. Entertainment like you can listen to at any point in the future. It's about stuff at home, but I mean we made it now.

Your time and money so do check it out onto me. This home entertainment available now for pay what you like from me. This store DOT COM. We'll be back with a fresh new episode of me this on your podcast feed on the first Thursday of July, but for now let's head back to twenty eleven with restaurants I mean this one hundred and ninety two. Why did and salt-and-pepper coal their bandler condiments? Good Jewelry. Jack Kid shouldn't be seen as a complement. Hello listeners welcome back to answer me this the must term Serres. macomer says my favorites religious holiday. Mine too I ever. There's an opportunity to celebrate the birth of Michael. I made you this Michael Moose Geico enjoy it now. Of course we've been off for the last month. Frolicking in this sort of sunshine well, how was it in? Austria boiling hurts wasn't a lot of sunshine tons of if anything too much well, that would explain why. According to the impression I get from your facebook photos anyway. You basically didn't leave a museum. They went to more museums. Five days have been to about the past. Museums that sounded incredible that we didn't go to including a Museum of Esperanto undertaking. And went to one. which was the Pathology Museum Ali which. Full of waxworks of Disease Genitalia syphilis in other words, stuff by COM included madame to. We went into room after room. Another scabies P next. Welcome to my world. Well I beef did at times feel like a museum of Sieff. Because that world of English tourists there. And, he's an email that could have come from Ibiza amongst that it's. John who says I work as a manager overseas for large UK, tour operators. And wanted to know. Why it is that when the British venture brought, they seem to lose all common sense. They're only traveling to another country at. You'd think that the plane landed on some yet to be discovered planet, the majority need help with something as simple as buying a bottle of water or using telephone differ his in foreign. It's too hard, so he'll announce. This wire Brits broad, lacking in the common. Sense Department holiday. You don't supposed to common sense because you're on holiday from your common sense, you take you take total this commonsense. Massive Ideo inside the airport go grew. Up some Monday in Bisbee Walk Swam. Picking Up Shit, I've dropped them forgotten. And then we're going to hold on the person driving and looking at the hotel case and she just become the dads. lamposts and Lose cameras and stuff all the time. It's because I'm on holiday Martin I'm not in my usual role of being sensible and having a brain that works I think that's part of this actually John. I think when people go on holiday. They want a break from all the responsibilities that they've had home. That's part of what they're going on holiday to get away from and as a manager, you are a non exactly. You are basically out of office, replied. Equivalent of that they. Yet, have to make a decision we'll say. Why did find myself a bit overwhelmed by being somewhere where I really didn't speak any of the language at all, I'm buying water and why bang of cheese. It's so hard. I think the ultimate stupid tourist thing on this particular trip actually. Managed without realizing until I actually got to the check in desk at the airport for return flight to book plane tickets that were for a different day to the. We actually got spit apple to play out so. Yeah pretty bad, but go from this delighted with the was her favourite personal money had an early. Mao Show in that. I wanted to know why. Old Men have fucking enormous years. It's so that they look adorable with paper hats on Christmas. Fremont. Could it be as you get older? Your is bigger 'cause you're hearing is getting worse, so you actually need bigger is. More resonant sound ridiculous have studies being done about the relative is is to hearing excellence. There's a larger area over which could collect saying so that it's not completely ridiculous also when you're older. Even if you don't go bald, you'll still have thin hair. Nothing you'll is with look bigger this is. No it's not a party you're is do grow at a rate of hundredths of an inch. Do see some very old men, though until like one hundred. Yes, absolutely whoppers! Number but the. Floppy so I think what it is although couldn't find conclusive answer. I think it's not like your whole I think it's the bit the stretchy. They kind of become slacker and slacker. They all DIGA. Iraq and so I. Don't think it's going to overrule growth I'm not so there's an increase in can airdrop could like boobs. Drop really okay. Tell for question from Jess from Dorset. Now. Who says announced me this. What was the first video? Uploaded to Youtube. Shit actually I watched it for the first time today. It's called me at the zoo, and it was uploaded by one of the founders of Youtube Joe at Karim on the twenty third of Eight, thousand, five, thousand amazing. That was so recent, isn't it? It's just as the title suggests him at the Zoo. He's at San Diego Zoo outside the elephants abuses. Note as many as one would expand five point seven, nine, million, a mere five point seven. Considering today, wild away quite a few minutes looking at videos of people falling over things of walking into glass doors thirteen. Then not very good. I mean keyboards imperative casher. Sixty million. True, but it's the long game though, isn't it? No one hundred years time probably be up there with the most viewed youtube videos well, yeah. Because, it's just not very interesting video. It's nineteen seconds long. It's a man's facie saying mountains zoo. They got really long trunks. Did you know that's the thing that everyone knows about elephants? He, deliberately made a slightly ship video to set the precedent that you didn't have to be frightened to upload content to youtube because when it started, it was very much about is user generated? Everyone's going to be video blogging me. Talking about their lives known, we realized in two thousand eight about the everyone's life is boring unless they're freakish, looking or hurting themselves, and then luckily channel five used at top load neighbors. And then we all want professional content instead, so, but in those early days especially when clips have to be quite short, because people's Internet connections went very fast and stuff. That's not a bad clip. Is it eight hundred seconds of being border zoo? That's about what you was designed full ring. The I wonder who the first person was to write your retard in the comments on this I. You probably didn't take very long, but judging by the standard of Charles on Youtube I. Reckon an hour. Even though there was no other content on the site, this guy's like Hitler. Is. It a good idea to have comments on Youtube. Just decide because they always whatever the content will descend into your Rita. See now that you've mentioned it, but I really out very much problem unpleasantness. It's not like really paying any attention to anything video apart from properly the viewing figures, and maybe their likes and dislikes the because when we were looking audience of people hurting themselves, we for the ones with at least a few hundred thousand dollars of UCONN. Yeah, thousands probably. The downsized search for go. Who craps her pants, but we just got. Up because as it turns out, that was a fake clip of ago cupping pants obviously don't fight to show. We did have a look later. But we looked down. We saw them on that. because. That's a good book y'All. How's he managed? conjure up this feeling. Hope, but that's situation so convincingly. As? They are the ones where people do fight fart noises funny, no his question from Greek from Glasgow, who says when I was seven years old and em- primary school I got married in the playground to go. This involved the exchange of gummy rings. And a reluctant kiss on the cheek. Sounds like a kind of possible job, doesn't it? Swing. Amazing if you Ashley US Gummy. Range married. Anita ring. With this hour either wet. I've since lost touch with this girl twelve years. And I. Now have a long term boyfriend, so Helen answer me this since we did not get divorced by playground law. Cheating on her well. I'm guessing that there wasn't a playground. Register their correct to officiate and ratify. Make all the documents signed. It's binding. There wasn't a playground license and also pipe playground law. The divorce is just running away from the goal shouting that she smells. Consequence of hanging around goals in Spielberg, isn't it? Yeah, that's what happened. The very girls that you're marrying in kissing when you're seven in this game of what he'll be like been under the very ones you turn your back on till you come back on your knees begging for attention for years later. It's not the girls that smell then it's Y-y-you. Smell of links Africa. Young sweethearts I think I had quite a lot I remember. Being so modest. Distinctly remember that. I was classmate brought this big pile of love letters from girls, and he was really close from Oh. Sorry, I'm so embarrassed. Female Interested me Oh. It's too awful for then I think never. Happened with. You up too early. That's what happened. Yeah, I did. Thorough, but what did you used to get up to with them? Remember at really dancing with. So extreme them sending me letters, ask gals want. Isn't it just someone to listen? Come. From the frenzy, I got the guest. Then email your guest the on. This podcast uncommitted Dot Gov. Slash Google. His podcast dot. com. CAST. Now Here's a question from Sean from Jacksonville in Florida. WHO Says I'm writing this on my cell phone in the back of a minivan returning from disneyworld where we're just spent to the most rutted days of my life with my wife, sister-in-law her husband. Three and one year old children, what you're in Disney world that is literally the happiest place on a minivan leaving Disneyworld, so that probably isn't the happiest place on employee Helen that he didn't have fun does he must must've just on that because? He says. BEING STUCK IN MOUSE, world, surrounded by squally kids and exhausted fighting parents as completely sealed. My already stop is decision to never ever ever ever have any kids for drugs on. Wanted. The problem is my wife. Just turned thirty five to tick tick tick tick. And started feeling her biological clock in a major way to the tune of several drunken meltdowns about my lack of drive to spawn. My sister in Law's husband mentioned to me that he is about to get a vasectomy which sounded like a grand idea for me to funding access. trip, this sounds like a great reality division Taika family to Disney world events. So audience we this. Is it possible to get. ME, without my wife knowledge and then pretend I'm shooting blanks. Or is it better to simply be blunt and start Mike Round about not having kids and face having her potentially leave me. I'm twenty eight. We've been extremely happily married for six years and I wanted to stay with her forever, but not involve the years of misery and straighten which loving children please help. Right okay well before we even move onto the ethics of whether or not, you should hide sector from your wife who's desperate children vasectomies aren't that easy to hide nights a relatively simple procedure right, but it's still going to be at least a week. I would save discomfort. Pain to put it mildly and if anything goes wrong, it's a few days in hospital, but even if it goes right, it's a week of hobbling around and also presumably at least a smallest scar. At a place where your wife might, if you're lucky, put her face. The secrecy might be an even bigger problem than the child argument. Because in whether have children argument, both of US count equally go off and do this. May Deceptions tensely problem? My opinion counts more than yours. Entirely. What's on means because Matzos I love my niece fees once I've spent more than an hour with them I, too. I'm begging to be sterilized. Yes, before they want. But that's a different thing, isn't it? Because as we all see in the friends of ours that we have? When the hormones kick in there about to have children when they're pops out, they think it's the most incredible thing in the world. Well, anyway ethically there is no argument for going behind your wife's back and doing this, plus the fact that there's this seven year age gap between you mean the when you got married when you were twenty. Two to someone who was seven years older than you knew perfectly well that this conversation was gonna come up around about now. You now have to deal with it. It manner I think usually before you marry you, discuss it when you probably you at least would have to establish that you want at opposing views that there was at least either some room to maneuver all you haven't decided yet. And I guess if he got married two twenty two, then they can put off the decision making for a few years, but now the time has come. Yes, you can't. You can't put it off by having surgery. That's fat. Yeah, but also you're obviously matt because Disneyworld's amazing. It's amazing and you think it's boring, so so I. Don't trust your judgment. Your wife's probably right. You probably should have kids because you're wrong. You shouldn't have kids because no one should sport if they hate disneyworld well. Maybe you like Disneyworld because you haven't been there accompanied by children ruining it. That's true I've been the child route. Helen Oli H. E. from how shit. Totally. Will you me, too? It's the best recipes ever been. Did Mine was a company? Like a bread trumpets. Feel? eggy trumpet, so that's like a sponge of egg sounds like a schoolboy. Insult doesn't come. From the beaner.

A pretexting with any compet preparation is a necessity. Do not want soggy crump. An but I have invented of superior dishes in twelve years since the Great Pizza comp invention the other day, or made some cookies, some malls balls, but we're not nice.

Yeah, I do a pasta which is not boasting about invented pastor. Follow some dry skin. No, I. I invented a Passos, but I think actually although I invented this one day. 'cause. It's what we had in the cupboards. I think I actually ended up inventing something that is very typically alongside traditional Italian lines. That invented it with things in the team that had cheese and pineapple tentative not. That far off and I make this every week. I'm very proud of this. Wherever you say okay, it's not polished. It's just nice. Attentive teenager in it, that ultimately puts me off. Tina passed in my mind like it. Can say what you make it every week you must like. Half.

Essentially precisely so actually this is quite important research. Because you might, it might take even with the most cutting edge technology of a million years time it might take hundred years to get to the nearest inhabitable planet. In terms of conception, the lack of gravity apparently is a big issue really because I don't know for sure that they can create pregnancy that way, although it has been done with rats, but what? They definitely know that they'd be able to sustain pregnancy for healthy baby because. Of Vertebrae and stuff like that advised not to fly. trimesters. Conceived in space could be. Problems upon re entry. Hi! This is Catherine hallows from South Wales but living in Lamitan. Spa. Having, it only happens to me. How sometimes the name royal in front Royal Lymington SPA. So that's pretty special or they just. Somewhere, the queen like visit. Things that she said it's either. The monarch visited there regularly as I think is the case in Roy lymington Spa. It was a spa town, or it's achieved something some notoriety, some celebrity, which needed to be marked by an official, said like for example, the most recent one is wouldn't Bassett because I did the military repatriations. That's now become Royal Bassett I. I don't think that's because the queen likes going that. It's because the funny name was like something that should be commemorated by the crown, well girl in Royal Tunbridge Wells and so I wanna the reason for this is because we're better than everybody else. OCCUPAN need a new time. I'm definitely not royal health. I met the people who helped design the time. Which is very interesting, did you? Say Shame on you. were. With the big fro cook novel blows the bubbles. There's a big front clock. In the Mall Yeah, Martino! He's taking me to it. Saying it blows bubbles on the hour. Number bubble I always think when I see a clock which you're supposed to stand and wait for it to do with it. Yeah, that's a tourist attraction. You put in a place where there's not a lot going on. And he saved about early I went to such clock in Vienna. It has all figures each hour and in twelve o'clock they all pass across the face. You get the full twelve, and it takes about ten or fifteen minutes and there's. I'm not criticizing I'm saying it's actually quite clever thing to put in a place where nothing is happening, because banks an event on the hour. There's tons of stuff happening. Yeah, well, I think you're mad. Go Watch o'clock. was watching. Most people there was one of these guys in there. Who sprayed themselves completely platinum and on a been a human touching.

It's not entertainment is just entertain, but neither is clock. I'm so curious though about the life of human studies, so if any of you listeners have ever been on, please tell me I see where you get ready. Is it near your site or do you get ready at home and then commuting standing very still on the bustle? Begin covered in in silver, my cotner. How'd you home? Where'd you go to the toilet? Is it rewarding work? You do all day to entertain yourself while standing there. Did you ever think of another career required more movement, maybe some talking so many questions I have. A. I don't know about you. But sometimes I've each the end of a podcast with. A Wad turn craving for more. such as I confess I have calls to the answer me this APP. On the IPHONE and In Times of dire need. And Law hit. Upon which I have indulged in the weekly bonus material and Over three hours of best bits. Here's a question from fourteen year old. Georgia who said I questioned my older sister about this, and she has no idea so. That's what we've got to beat league goal. WHO has no idea? In the well-known film the wizard ables never of. Dorothy begins her journey on the yellow brick road next to the start of that vote is also a red brick road, so Ali answer me this. Where does the red brick road lead to? not the Emerald City I. mean the crucial point so opposite. Yeah the Emerald Outlet Mall. It's like a sparkly shades. Where they start off for in months cannot. It's very convenient really that the house came down. The spring when spring! Very beginning, yeah, multi story mile, walk away. You'd get the emeralds at Youth Hostel and So you're not sure which way you're supposed to go, facing the wrong way on the yellow drew carriageway. Seems though there wasn't a red brick road that was just to make this well. Look pronounced. I looked Peter it said there was a redbrick rate, but it doesn't go anywhere in the book knows the eleborate right party really well not by name, not by the name yellow brick right? Yeah, yeah, but they must be eroded made of yellow brick, but the point is in the film. It's very clear from where the scarecrow says. He says you can go away, or you can go that away I'm an era targeting American from the thirties and when he says. It's very clear that only by following the yellow brick road with that specific fork on it, we'll dorothy get to the emerald city because she puts a faith in which the way etc. if she'd taken the red brick road, she would be in the wrong place. That's the point it symbolic. You're not supposed to actually think. Where does it leave? The point is not Emerald City clearly filmed. Filmed in a studio anyway, it's just GONNA lead to the wall. Rewrite. It is a production design thing because you get that beautiful aerial shots where all the Munchkins look particularly small, because it shot from high above, and then you get that spiral of the to intertwine colors, which looks pretty. Did they not just actors? A massive Judy Garland was nearly seven feet tall. That's what my. Old Is Dorothy supposed to be in the story because Judy Garland was obviously quite amazing. I think about like well. But it's amazing, because the best one is in the whizz in the musical, the Wiz seven seen the and all black motown version of the wizard of Oz. She the Lion Diana Ross is Dorothy. How how absurd is that? She looks about forty. And just playing twelve is just. Ridiculous Michael Jackson. Is I think the scarecrow Richard? Pryor is the wisit. You've got some proper motown legends. Who? I don't know their names, but you hear their voice and you think shit. That's the guy out the four tops over like he's got amazing cast singing good. The songs are terrible, and it's really kind of contrived him weird, but it's definitely worth a look and see how the oldest orpheum she makes. Judy garland about four, and did they have the yellow brick road in the red brick road have course. redbrick probably goes to fifty four, actually this really irritating number where they go through all the different colors, and what they all mean, and they will conveniently mean the thing that rhyme. The color red is dead. That's green. Blue is shoe I mean it's just pointless and meaningless. That's. Pink. Is MINK got? Manno probably I always aloe indigo. Troublesome? Yeah you don't talk about that end of the spectrum. And that sound me blowing. My nose brings us to the end of this episode of on me this down. A sorry, sometimes when you gotta go, you gotta go.

Jada Pinkett Smith & Will Smith Confirm August Alsina Relationship, Kelly Preston Dead at 57 - Daily Pop 07/13/20

"Hello and welcome to daily Pob I'm Justin. Sylvester Aaron in Margaret are out against I'm joined by Nina. Parker and Victor Cruz now. There is so much to talk about today. Including the heart breaking news of Kelly Preston's death, we also have updates on the tragic search for Neier Rivera, but we have to start with will and Jada getting real about her affair on that Red Table Talk. This was a huge all weekend long. Nina how much of that TV you sip all weekend. This is the thing I mean. I definitely posted a few entanglement jokes on my instagram. Personally looking for tangled right now myself you know I'm happily be! All. Listen. I'm looking for them and heavy on the tangle. Guys, who did not see here is just one moment that got our attentions on this ray tabletop. Take a look. You need to say clearly happened as far as what you and I. Decided we were GonNa take our space and what happened? And then I got into an entanglement with. August, that's what I said entanglement. Relationship, yes, it was relationship absolutely. ooh! What did you guys think about this? Are you surprised that they got so candid? I'm a little surprised mainly because they had been. You know, have been rumors about what their relationship was for so long. How do they handle it? Are they in an open marriage, are they not? They've been hiding it for so long and for something to finally come out a rumor or you know August. Come out and say these things, and then obviously all of us everybody out there wanting to know the truth and I think the time had to come for them to be honest and come out and say. Say, what was going on and I? Think that you know it took a lot and I think it was refreshing to see so honest about something that was going on with their marriage as perfect as everything may seem for them with what they had going on. It was just refreshing to see Jada. Come on and say yeah. We have some issues and I went on had a relationship with somebody else, and we've managed to get through that recover, and here we are today, but that entanglement boy that was. A weekend thing people are gonNA. Feel. However they WANNA feel. Still get these jokes off. You know percents. Joke about it, but seriously I feel like their relationship is their business. I am surprised though that stories of story or someone coming, doing a sitdown hasn't happened sooner given the amount of. Rumors that surrounded them for notice. you know. Surprises twenty twenty or you know they really nothing really was going on, but you know that's the thing it's like we never really know what's going on in the relationship because on the outside, it looks like they had the perfect marriage. No one ever suspected that they were separated. So this point you really got to work on your own stuff and not look at anybody. Relationship Goals because a lot of things are smoking mirrors, and that's no shade towards them, but it's just the very candid about their ups and downs, and it makes almost feel like okay cool. I don't have to have everything perfect like I'm GonNa have. GotTa have flows one hundred percent and to your point. I was surprised that there hasn't been more people, but you know how it happens. When somebody puts the door open and you see that Oh. August got to do this and not get sued. Maybe I can. Out of The closet. But I think for them. I think for them if you'RE GONNA ask people to come to the table, and be truthful and be transparent, and you don't do it. Bigger problem. Right and also and also black twitter woke up with this. Because you know August, Alsina put it out there in minor would've gone away, but then we'll said. I deny are allegedly said I deny it, and then everybody was like wait, but who's lying because you know black twitter, love and investigation. Yeah. They had to go on and basically say that we did not deny that something did happen, but then she was shot to will shut out to will, because it takes a lot for a man to be there with his lady admit that she was in an entanglement with somebody else like it's not easy for him to do the end there were parts of it looked like he didn't WanNa be there at times looked like he was like just kind of going through the motion. He looked a little exhausted. There Victor will was getting a little petty to lead real because it was a revenge, we'll says he's going to get her back and Jada says I think you've got me back already I think we're good. They laugh about it. Do you think this is funny? And do you think that they have truly gotten over this August? Alsina entanglement. Ears right like anything for years since August so I think that they have moved on, and now they have to deal with it again publicly, so maybe re opening up something you know an old wound. They pull in. And she I think there was some shade and some resentment still left off from that. Because if you remember, there was this famous picture from the bt awards when August Alsina and Jada Pinkett Smith were standing next to each other. She was being petty at that time. In my opinion, because it's one thing to have a boo, it's one thing to have a side check, but when you bring your boots, bt awards and you take a photo with man. You KINDA. Wanted your husband to see it you want. He wasn't a side at the time because they both admit that they were broken up so they. Were okay to see. Public the public. The public that, so we're seeing this like wait. What is this? What is going on? Within their own relationship they saw, but when it's onto the when broadcast it out to the masses like that, it's different energy, and I think well if you look back for four years ago, four or five years ago, he's done some movies where he had some scenes and some and some things where he could have gotten his chance of revenge. Then I think he's already gotten out of his system and I think they've already crossed that bridge and already for next phase is just that black twitter was like I gotta come back a little bit. Let's. See. The same time. It's like I feel like there's an expectation of women especially black women in relationships where you're supposed to be disrupter, die and go through all these trials and tribulations with the man in order to gain his loyalty, love and respect, and I think that I'm seeing you know the reverse happened will stay with Jada than working it out, and people are kind of shaming him for being with Jada after this whole situation, so it's interesting to me to see this double standard workout online, not in their relationship, but just to see people kind of looking at will little sideways when I feel like women are often expected to do that. One hundred percent, but I think when we'll said you know when he said Oh. I'm going to get you back and she said Oh. You've already gotten me back. to? Because I. Know Myself I'm a Scorpio, so if I see, I'm GonNa. Get you back. It might not be in a physical way. I might not step out, and I might not cheat on you, but what I might do is hold this against you and take some jabs at you, and maybe give you an entanglement birthday gift for your window. You are a Scorpio. Towards me on. Getting revenge. Okay bottom line Nina. Do you think this marriage will last? Yeah, I think you know will have said that they are life partners. And he said that there's nothing here Jada can do to make one other that they are in this till death so I think this relationship is going to go on. Continue long long after August you've heard said if you're going to be on one side with somebody and I will be on the other side, but we're going to be here together Yep Yep. Victor! Could you forgive Carucci if she got into? The we got another story to get to. We got more stories to get. We're going to have to have a whole red table sitting down for that one. That's all the different things we going. What are you gonNa need a buffet table. We don't need a whole red house. We don't eat a red condominium. Kid Got. Money and a little bit. Leading. Me I think I think this couple of big ups them for being open and honest and knowing what they need to know what they wanted. So you know Kudos to them? I hope they work out all right guys in just a few minutes. Tori spelling will join us, but up next another heartbreaking day in Hollywood e pay tribute to Kelly Preston right after this. Kelly only girl Greece's out that little. She's like a teenager, so she. She said she looks at the poster and Said Oh God? That's my husband. One day I signed the poster, and before I had gone into, see the film and I had sort of a flash and I thought. I'm GONNA marry that Man Such a beautiful woman that was just one of the many times. Actress Kelly Preston Talk to E. News over the years. Sadly Kelly died yesterday after a two year battle with breast cancer her husband. John Travolta posted a tribute, saying in part Kelly's love and life will always be remembered. I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother so forgive me in advance if you don't hear from us for awhile, but please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal. Kelly survived by John and their children, Ella and Benjamin. Their sent jet passed away in two thousand and nine Kelly was only fifty seven years old. So a sad story you see their relationship. And how did he? They were around each other for so many years. It's just sad to see Kelly go, it's. Such a shock because they. They dealt with this privately. So you know, I was on twitter last night in and saw in are just. You know it was overwhelmed. Because you know she's been such a staple in Hollywood for so long. Yeah, she's just unbelievable. Woman more sad news. Today also marks seven years since Glee Star Cory Montas passed away. Corey was just thirty one years old when he died from an overdose in two thousand thirteen. I. I mean something to me. You mean something to me. Something ever would have happened to you and I didn't do everything that I could try and stop at never able to live with myself. Now if you remember, corey played Finn Hudson on Glee for five years and losing. Corey is just one of the many tragedies. The cast of Glee has faced over the years the most recent being the disappearance of Neier Rivera now. And and still today the search continues for Ni- at Lake. Pie Roo her family has also been at the to do whatever they can to help. Known Wednesday night went missing and presumed dead after her four year old son Josey was found alone in the boat she had rented. Authorities say there's no indication of foul play or that. This was a suicide. They believed it was just a tragic accident. They also tell news. Son was able to give them information that was very helpful to investigators and think we have a little bit of an update right now. Yes So the Ventura Sheriff their official twitter account just tweeted just moments ago. That a body has been found at Lake Peru this morning. The recovery is in progress. A news conference will take place at two PM at the lake. so a lot of people obviously believe that the body found is Ni-? Although that has not been confirmed jet by law enforcement officials. Wow. Thank you for that town, those perfect co-star had the Morris has been very involved as well even obviously offering to put together her own search for Nyah while some. Other co-stars have stayed quiet. Yeah, LE- Michelle actually deactivated her twitter account over the weekend and fans think it's due to her allegedly being bullied over Nias disappearance. Amber Riley spoke out soon after on social media. She didn't name names, but people starting to think that it was in reference to Leah. She wrote impart show some respect. All our energy is going towards helping Finai and praying for her safe return, and for her family. No one knows anyone online performance of grief right? Do you guys think you this had to do with Leeann? Do you think that when something like this happens? You have to post. Can we just go back a little bit before we even talk about twitter I just want to address the breaking news that just happened because I feel like it deserves response. And just you know and just say that. You know my heart. My heart and prayers go out tonight. His family I know that they have been really devastated. Even going down to the lake, themselves or photographs of her father swimming in the water, trying to find hurtles, so you know. The one thing that they can get his closure from the situation so just hoping that they received that so that they can move forward in the best way that they possibly can, but it's just you know such an unfortunate. Situation and this breaking news right now is just you know. Everybody is completely reacting to it as it happens, you know. I think about this story. More and more I have a eight year old daughter, right and I think of you know God forbid, but if she was in this situation, just a mental, you know what she will be going through mental mind tire family in general, and to just think back on her something four years old and having to go through that it's just so sad and so such a tragedy for the family for the week house for everyone in the. The world that's paying attention to this is extremely unfortunate. Yeah, I hardly hurts because it struggling between two things. One side of my heart hopes that it's her so that the family can get closure, but the other side of my heart is praying that it's not and that she's washed up somewhere still alive, and that there's still hope for her three found alive in breathing and be able to reconnect with her son, I just does anybody else have that feeling? Yeah I'm still trying to remain as optimistic as possible. We still have that little sense of hope. I think that's what you're not just in that sense of hope that there's some positivity. That's GONNA. Come from the story at some point which is rain for? And and Continue to wait yeah. You. Don't want your body. You know it's. It's just completely tragic situation all the way around for sure we'll. We'll have more for you guys tomorrow on daily POPs, so stay tuned. We'll be right back with more daily pop after this.

We hear Nyah Rivera's mysterious death marks another tragedy for troubles cast of glee, Johnny, Depp and amber herds liable case keeps getting more explosive and a couple searching for buried treasure in Maine, found unlikely VIP instead coming up next on we here. On my God. Blushed, cross paves. Six whatever field. Hey there I'm Maggie Coggan an army and more welcome here page six podcast. Here all the celebrity dirt from squeeze of sources and you hear the story behind the story. Maggie I have a hot tip about a story time. The story behind the scenes of we hear a page. Six PODCAST AKA whistle his all the pod sizzle. Please share it with us, so I got a hot tip from my brother-in-law. Sources come in many forms. Who who actually texted me to say that he had noticed that We hear quick fix. which is the many podcasts that we exclusively do for spotify on the weekends? So if you enjoy our full size meal size, we hear podcast you can have can have a little weekend snack size podcast. Of We hear the on the weekends. There's just a few minutes gives you the top stories of the week going on and celebrity news, but He had noticed that we have cracked the top thirty. In the spotify podcast. Wow! Yup and we are ahead of not to gloat. I have previously said it was a stunning defeat when we lost. At The New York state AP awards. We were nominated with one other podcast and we managed to. Island I ace! We have done more free press for island ice than we have done for Ray J for Timothy Challenge. For Anybody At the. New York state AP words We, got body checked against the glass by island ice, and then they literally ran us over with the Zamboni. Why? They went up to the podium to claim their rightful places, the top podcast in the land, but now we've had a major comeback. We've cracked the top thirty and a half to say not to gloat. Even though we lost island ice podcasts that we are beating include. Were beating Conan O'Brien. Zach Braff Rachel Maddow. NPR Planet Money even our beloved the breakfast club. Sorry guys and we're just youth odds behind DAX. Shepard and Ben Shapiro so there you go. It's a hot tip and if you haven't checked out our weekend bite-size, we hear quick-fix. Check it out. Maybe will up the charts a little bit more and finally get the title back next year from island ice. Onto our first story. So last week, naira Rivera mysteriously disappeared when she and her four-year-old son took a boat out on a California Lake. Yes. She rented a boat with her four year old son and He was later found asleep in the boat by himself, wearing a life jacket. I guess when the boat wasn't returned to the rental place near La in a place called Lake. Peru its turned from a rescue mission to justice search mission, and there's a lot of mystery surrounding this search, and it's also just the latest bad news for the show Glee, which has had a tremendous amount of tragedy with stars over the years. This isn't the first sort of awful story to happen to a cast member. Yeah. And now. The search has moved to lakeside cabins so at the beginning of the search. There was a lot of backlash because. Authorities seem to have paused the search saying that the waters were murky, the lake can span as deep as one hundred and fifty feet, and a lot of people felt that if naira was maybe Liam, Michelle or a white actress, her disappearance would get more attention and the search would go on well. I think that you have a situation where obviously there are people who are professionals who are doing the search, and then when you have a celebrity who so well known there's obviously all the commentary on social, media and people theorizing. You know why. Why why are they calling off the search? Why aren't they doing more like you mentioned? There have been reports that authorities. We're GONNA look at these cabins even though they don't feel like it'll turn anything up in. They suspect according to reports that Nyerere Rivera drown, not only fans. SORTA questioned the search itself, but the cops have had to urge lines not to search for Nyah Rivera themselves, apparently according to reports because of the enormous amount of interest from the public officials in the area, the sheriff Sheriff's department. There has had to tell people. Not to not to search themselves. There was a quote from someone from the Sheriff's department in the in the La Times. Telling fans I think anybody that goes up. There will quickly realize it's not a friendly environment to be out there searching and that is lake is in a steep canyon surrounded by inhospitable terrain. The temperature has been in the nineties, Yo. People Act the training and equipment to start just searching their the piece in the La, times went onto Co. the authorities saying the concern is where. Where people show up and go off on their own, and then get themselves into trouble, or it's heat, exhaustion or dehydration meantime the the father of Naira Rivera son with seen going into the water with another family member kind of doing their own searching even Heather Morris, who was Nyas co-star on glee offer to help with the mission. She wrote to the Ventura County Sheriff's Office on twitter. I understand your team is doing everything their power, but we are feeling helpless powerless and want to help any way. I. Think this is a common thread for you. Loved ones who who have suffered a loss like this where someone essentially disappears, and there's been a breaking update in this story that Nyah Rivera's body has been found by authorities. There weren't a lot of details beyond that, but it seems to be naira Rivera the cast of Glee, was apparently seen holding hands by the side of the lake where she died and I'm sure they'll be more details coming out as the police piece together. What happened? There was a story earlier this summer that I had reported on about a wwe former W. w. w. e. wrestler named Shad guests bar do. Do you remember that. And he was also in on a beach, this was near Beach in La with his ten year old son, and they were swimming, and he got caught in a rip current and disappeared the son survived, and in. It's kind of a similar thing. Although different body of water shad, Gaspard basically disappeared end, there was a search, and I remember as I was reporting the story. It took kind of a similar trajectory, but of course he's not as big a star, so there wasn't quite as much attention on it I mean people in the WHO follow wrestling or in. In the wrestling world refunding story pretty closely, it was a similar thing. There was a surge than the search was paused than it was lessened than they. They gave up the search then his body was found a few days later, actually washed up on shore. I think he had disappeared on a Wednesday and then on the weekend his body was found, so it took a few days, and it was also another grim story of a drowning, and you know the same region, so tragedy has befallen the glee cast's many times. You might remember in two thousand and thirteen Corey Monte died from. From, an accidental drug and alcohol overdose. He was only thirty one Monday. July thirteenth also marks the seven year anniversary of Corey. Monte death mark selling. Who What happened Mark Sailing I? Remember the Corey Monte thing very well, but what happened to mark sailing I? Don't remember this so back. In two thousand eighteen mark sailing died by suicide. You might remember. He pled guilty to possession of child pornography twenty seventeen Oh my God this is why I think I forgot this story Maggie, think I've yeah. It was so grim in weird and actually naira wrote about dating him in her book. She has a memoir out. So. Yeah. There's a lot of tragedy that this cast has dealt with, and it wasn't so long ago that we were talking about Leeann Michelle on twitter being accused of making Samantha wear another actress who appeared on Glee. Her Life Living Hell. Yea I, was gonNA. Say this story with NYRA Rivera it kind of puts the Liam shelving in perspective in that there were some claims which were pretty serious about bullying in her acting like a diva and a lot of co-stars talking about that, but I feel like the naira Rivera tragedy kind of puts the whole thing in perspective but. But didn't naira Rivera also have previous very public beef with Liam Michelle I believe so yes, so Liam Michelle has deleted her twitter account. Good idea and there's been some backlash about that, too, but amber riley and Kevin McHale, who both appear on the show have kind of defended her. You know amber, said, show some respect, all our energy is going toward helping find Nyah and praying for her safe return, and for for family. No one knows anyone online performance of grief. This is very real and devastating focus on Nyah and her family, not us. We don't matter right now. Ryan Murphy created glibly. This is all sounding like a different one of his shows American horror story. Johnny. Depp is in court in London because he suing the Sun over an April Twenty eight particle that called him a wife beater. Following accusations made by amber heard now because he is in court. Amber herd is also there and we're hearing a lot of mutual violence accusations between the two I mean. This story is so insane. Maggie because. Johnny Depp is suing for libel, but as part of this case. As you mentioned for a piece that called him a wife Beater. Because amber herd is accused him of physically abusing her, which he has adamantly nine, but as part of this trial Johnny Depp thought that he was going to be on the stand. You know just for a short amount of time, and his testimony has dragged on for days and days, and the the testimony. That's come out in this case. There so much I mean? It's like every day. There's three crazy bombshell allegations. About Johnny Depp and Amber Hers Relationship and you just have to wonder. I mean. Is it worth at all I mean it seems like it is to Johnny Depp because there's a report. Today that he even said to one of the The court you know bailiffs, or whatever as he was leaving I'm going to miss you. so He seems to be having kind of a sense of humor. I saw the whole thing, but the accusations are insane, and the testimony has brought in everything from alleged partying and bingeing with Marilyn Manson to. Defecation in his bed to you know. As you mentioned violence between the two, and it's just totally crazy, and you have to wonder, is he? IS HE GONNA? Kinda win the battle but lose. The war. Even, if he wins this case, and all this crazy stuff is out there. Like what does this mean for? Him In his career. I mean the gory details that are coming out in this case are shocking, but there is photographic evidence of so much stuff. Now everyone has seen a mirror scrawled. In blood I love you from Johnny Depp. All kinds of messages they were writing back and forth to each other after having blowout fights of photo of Johnny. Depp Asleep and covered in. ICE, cream. How he looked during a binge like it's, it's really really mind blowing to see that all this was going on. These were married and like they were still like appearing. On red carpets together, looking ever so glamorous. Going on behind the scenes really makes you think I'm going to say I'm going to just throw in alleged binge. Maggie and just make our lawyers work a little easier for this segment of the podcast, but yeah, there's one night in question. Just in itself, which is so not switches amber herds thirtieth birthday, which was back in April of two thousand sixteen, so this is just one evening in the relationship. Johnny Depp and amber heard, but basically she has accused him. Of that nate, hurling a magnum of champagne at her, pushing her to the floor, and yanking her by the hair, and then leaving a note that said happy. Birthday so that was her version of the evening his version of the evening is that he had had a meeting before the birthday party with his team, and they had informed him that basically he he learned. He says that he had made a hunt. He's revealed that he made six hundred fifty million dollars off of the second and third installments of pirates of the Caribbean and that that night before the party he had learned that that the money was allegedly stolen right by his management, and he's been in a huge bombshell case with them about this as well, but then he also says that he learned that he was about one hundred million dollars in the hole. Because his team didn't pay taxes for seventeen years, and that he he smoked cannabis before the party, but that was sort of to calm him down, and then he says he went to the Party and that amber heard was really mad at him for being late end also for I guess they had gotten in a fight at the party because he was lead, so he says he went to bed to read to read to sort of calm things down, but that she or one of her cohorts than defecated in his bed. which he says was a prank. Made Him, decide to end their marriage. Any also says that. She threw a haymaker at him that night. And then he had to. Testify in court. When he was asked what a haymaker was, he said it's just a type of wild swinging kind of a roundhouse punches were it's a bit of a wild swing, but effective if it reaches the target. Wow Yeah I mean. There's also been I mean. It's been insane. There's been testimony that amber heard made fun of his Wino- Forever Tattoo. And now there are reports that would no. No writer is going to testify in this case that Johnny. Depp was never abusive to her. I mean an end. Yes so I noticed that the only one who's going to testify apparently his former longtime partner Vanessa parody will who's the mother of his children will also testify. Yet funny I mean even when you read the the reports of his. Of His testimony I mean, it would be amazing to be sitting. You know to be a juror on this trial. He said in this is a quote. Since pirates of the Caribbean to win three I had, and this is ludicrous to have to state. It's quite embarrassing by the way I'm being. I actually have been binge-watching. Brides head revisited the nineteen eighty one eleven part miniseries with Jeremy Irons. So I've actually been going around. Saying that everything is like ghostly. Everything is everything is ghostly and a ball so anyway so I'm sort of. This core case is playing out in London. You've got the country so I'm sort of reading this John and Johnny. Depp had been like staying in quit so I'm reading this Johnny Depp testimony. As if it's in bright's head revisited, he said since pirates of the Caribbean to in three I had, and this is ludicrous to have to state. It's quite embarrassing apparently. I had made six hundred fifty million. So that's horribly embarrassing, and then he realized that when he met with his reps that night. Before this birthday party that went awry, I had not only lost six, hundred, fifty million, but I was one hundred million in the hole because they had not paid the government my taxes for seventeen years I just did my taxes. Kinda to the wire. and. I can't say I've always been the most responsible person at all. And I've you know but not paying your taxes or seventeen years like this quite a while? Yeah, remember when it all came out about his finances for the first time like how did he spent like over six figures on wine and With that he was spending thirty thousand dollars a month or something on wine. His former reps had alleged in court documents, and then he said in a rolling stone interview that that was absurd. He had paid much more than thirty thousand dollars a month. You gotTA. Laugh whatever we here in this bombshell trial in London Maggie, it is almost like brides head. Revisit the eleven part miniseries because there's another chapter to this Johnny Depp thing coming up. He's suing amber heard in another libel case for fifty million dollars for an op. Ed that she wrote in The Washington Post. Says that could just be? Next episode. It's also tedious. Gosling. During an early morning, stroll on a main beach. Couple who seemed to be looking for buried treasure with a metal detector, stumbled upon something much different. A celebrity in fact, yes, but Maggie. I'm happy to report that after all of these grim. News that we've had so far podcast. This was a happy discovery. Yeah. They've found there was a guy. I guess there was a couple on Kennebunkport beach. We heard and they were outed about five thirty am last Wednesday and they had their metal detectors out. The Guy in the couple was recently retired and I guess that's what you do when you retire. What is it about retirement that makes people feel that while they were working, treasure had been married that they now need to find exactly exactly. Though is the one that well you never have time to search for buried treasure. Thanks so much I couldn't even find the treasure map now. I'm retired. I can like Alfred. The goal I mean honestly Maggie when we're working in the office. I can't even find the stapler I. Always come over to your desk and ask the staff over there like. Does anyone have a stapler? No, no staplers anymore hard to find a stapler these days. Why do I need a stapler? That's the thing that's on hey. You're not stapling anything at home I'm sure your Home Office doesn't even need a stapler exactly so they were there on the beach and apparently our sources in Canada bunk. Port Maine told us that a tall friendly guy was passing by him. The woman in the couple who was doing the metal detecting saw him exclaimed. Oh my God George and then she realized her faux. PAS and she added I mean Mr President. Because the guy passing by was George W Bush, and apparently he chitchatted with the couple about their about their metal detecting. Before. They parted ways. But you said sources and Kenny Bunk Port. I was your source, a lobster, a sand dollar a lobster roll. Exactly. Exactly deep. Deep Sea sources. They're hiding out in the sand dunes looking for treasurer, so I am someone who as a kid I grew up going to Maine in the summers. My Mom's family did it as well I've been to Kennebunkport as a little kid I remember seeing the Bush family on a boat and waving to them. They're they're around up. Well. That's thing so this couple. They saw on Wednesday and then apparently on Friday at about six fifteen am approximately. Two local lobsters he they George Bush was passing by again, but he was with a woman. And and he approached the couple as they passed, and he said Oh. You know louder. Would that be Laura Bush. Brochures I call her loud rob. Bush. and. Yeah, you know Laura and they're like Oh. Yeah, and then apparently he. Kind of started asking the couple again about their metal detecting. Efforts in how was going and asking them how the whole thing works in staffing apparently yet? George W Bush's just kinda stolen round on the beach up there. We should mention that. He was also followed by a secret service detail so. He's not totally alone and I guess you could Kinda. Know if if you're walking on the beach in there, a bunch of guys in black suits, white shirts and black ties in sunglasses who are cupping their ear, and saying things like the Pearl is in the river. That pearls on the ocean and this scenario. I think they let the Secret Service Secret Service I think they let the secret service. Where civilian clothes in these scenarios, because what an Seymour more kind of out of sorts to stumble upon someone wearing a suit with an earpiece and Sunglass. That's definitely the secret service you want to be like Oh. Look at these old man going for an am jaunt just cooling their little toes and. What I would like to see. Is George planting some treasure for this couple to find and then arriving moment of discovery to see how it goes, though that would be cute. Yeah, why not? What else are they doing up? There? Come. We need some activities warranty. Up. Well, it sounds like searching for buried treasure emceeing George. Bush is the main event I'm detecting another run in stay tuned.

If you can find the speakeasy come find me Miss Mary was he so is there a shortcut to this big easily coming. Just get to know where it is or it's gotta be like through yeah. Oh Shit okay. It's Kinda cool. They make something different. Oh Okay and everybody can get all the information for out of the fair on out of the fair dot com and are out at the fair at night. So is the APP separate in the now trending up Yep okay so there's two of this one this year we're having a game called finding Dahbi abby and we made eight UNICORNS representing each community flag and we're gonNA scatter them around the fair and you catch him on the little out of the fair and then at the enter your email address for a prize. Oh God that's fun. I I love. That's like a scavenger basically hey have you guys got. Do you go to the fair every year the santio county chair yeah this year's theme is wizard vase interesting. It's interesting theme to work with. Oh you guys have to whatever you guys then for that theme within the Saito now a lot of work on some decorations and that's really it. It's hard to do stuff to the theme some year yeah 'cause. You're like us all right. What's Ruby's liberal thinking they had thrown gender-bending Dorothy? I love of us. I'm excited about the I. That's a pretty good one that they picked. What was it last year? Wonderland was Oh yeah yeah yeah and there's a the whole friend of Dorothy which is <hes> very wizard of Oz so we've had good luck like the last several years have been like very gay themes like you know one time. It was like candy so can't just put like rainbow while he pops all over the place. It was not difficult. I'm didn't kicks Vixen styles perform at one of the parents yes she did last year Glam show okay call and then you guys besides out on out at the fair app you guys are the now trending up correct yeah originally hillcrest social and then you guys changed the name over who who came whose idea was it to come up with the APP and all of that so it with mine <hes> so basically I would say so humble with let me rephrase that whatever whatever our conception based will help me grow it so so basically the story is like two thousand fourteen. I was like a Gabi started going out to hillcrest clubs and I would get like the L._G._B._T.. Weekly magazine like back in the day and they used to have a whole page where it was you know everything going on in Hillcrest but it was a big magazine and I didn't WanNa have to carry that in my back pocket all day long to figure out where go so. I'm like well. Maybe I can just make an APP and so I did. It and I just remember like my dream was Oh you know maybe I'll be at the club someday and I'll see one other person with the APP and then basically I will and he helped marketed and kind of bring it to more than what it was which was literally just a calendar of events and now it's a full-fledged media APP. You guys have anything you want to know where even we're even you can stream the podcast. I do love it though like just getting to know like what happy hours are going on any given day and you don't have to go to like. Let's say one of the rags or one of the newspaper websites go through all living and be like okay. There's the event thing at their calendar. This is like super easy. Pop Open see what's happening for that weekend and not only that but one thing I found with some publications side of things is that is very limited. It's whoever's paying them the money right but the ad and I was like what you get we try to open it up a little bit more so any kind of nonprofit events that are going on or raising money like we love Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for instance like any fundraiser type stuff well. We'll just throw in the APP for free and then we also open open it up to the ability to basically promoters and clubs to go in and actually submit individual events like kind of a set fee so we we make it a lot more accessible so that way you can see a broader range of things instead of just like the two bars. How have you guys seen it grown since it originally started as a hillcrest social APP and now the now trending up it's really just been a big change kind of started a lot of confusion for awhile while and now people are starting to figure it out? It's one of the things we noticed but doing fares as what we missed by going to these other communities wasn't app like you go to their communities. And how do you know what's going on. How do you connect with other gay people L. D. of rebranding came and for me as a D._J.? When when I met Charlie I was like honestly if you can just make a way for people to send me requests so I don't have to deal with it? That's amazing which the yeah and now you can do priority already requests so people can pay their song next in like just sit up in the deejay booth and make lists all night and order Organiz which bar here in San Diego Duty Licks licks absolutely and so how if people aren't familiar with that aspect of the APP. How does it work? Basically you download the APP and on the top of it it has a button that says like video requests and you enter whatever song you WanNa hear and then it comes up to the deejay booth and then there's a huge list of them and we sit there and say yes or no oh you're like God if they're no mariah basically we cannot hear another one and then yeah and then once we hit yes they get a push notification back saying it's been accepted and well so what if somebody like. Let's say we're here at home and we're like <hes>. I'm GONNA request this. I guess we never really know where you think I'm just GonNa sit at home and fuck with. I know that we know we'll read on flicks go. I'll bash play request well. Well you know so that's one thing that we have. That's kind recall is if you're actually APP flicks. They have something like I think twenty four televisions or something crazy like that and so we actually have a dashboard on the television on Wednesdays Fridays and Saturdays that tell you like requests that are pending accepted so it kind of helps people like no the vibe but we also have a little disclaimer that says if it doesn't if it doesn't fit the vibe going to be played creeds out of the question Dami nickel nickel. Keep Your Butt Rock to yourself the Rock Ladies Gentlemen Stage but no. I don't like that one but I would like keep your rock to yourself. I put that on a tank top. I don't believe you in your playlist bashing. I WANNA see your spotify all gem speaking about if I play lists so fun little side effect that we have west as we actually compile every single request is submitted through the entire year so one aspect of that is every New Year's. We have a big top twenty five five countdown where we actually go through all the requests for the entire year and it's what are the only ones doing that in the gay world so our playlist. I we kind of figured our play. This is kind of the best representation of what gays are listening to at a bar so we actually had the idea a couple months ago to make a spotify playlist and so we actually have our own spotify playlist where we now curate the requests Zimba put those in the spotify so it's called the I think it's called the now trending Super Gay Music Yeah you'll be able to find it on our facebook and all of that but I'm looking for it. Yeah it's a cool way to kind of listen to the top songs of the community and you guys do the video request athletes because flicks is a video bar and it's the only one here in San Diego that is like a video in addition to that the the management of that place has always been very they changed and like trying new ideas so they've been a big supporter of since the beginning like any idea we brought to them were like hey. Can we try this and your bar. Is that like yeah let's do it. That bar was like the biggest one eighty I've ever seen when. When when that new management took Oh yeah we wouldn't even be like that's like a welfare Wednesday kind of place now? Oh my God every day yeah it's crazy. I've been there since they bought. It and it's just this crazy to see it. Change Yeah Yeah so what's coming up for the now trending APP anything new like in the works. I'll take so you know I just as you know I do. The development of that will does kind of more of the marketing ideas but one thing that we've changed. We've actually opened it with the rebranding of now trending. We've opened it to be essentially international so if there's a bar or a club or a restaurant or essentially any business wanting to promote to the L._G._B._T.. T- community they can go onto a portal on our website and submit their event and then we actually use location to determine what to show you have a venue in palm springs wants to promote event and you open the APP in Palm Springs. You're actually going to see those events. I so that's that's smart. I love that following us with us to fair seasons because we need to get that information out there and if you're in Sacramento you don't WanNa see Hillcrest exactly and if you're traveling a lot like let's say like me and rob when we go to Phoenix and it's like a last minute trip. It's like okay well. We have a night free without the family. What are we gonNA do and if it's like the now trending up we can open it and see what's happening that weekend in Phoenix that we can go and do within the Algebra T._Q.? Community that is awesome yeah yeah. That's definitely our goal. I mean we're still working working on building up the different areas slowly but I mean essentially right now anyone in any location can submit an event like we have a we have a drag queen. That's been set drag show from South Carolina Yeah from from South Carolina South Carolina Yeah so Shania sh sh she well okay fair status faction wishing back tonight satisfaction. I love that she ever coming back. I believe she's moving back in twenty twenty okay. She's working on key. Okay I keep I'm like when's it happening. Girl Come Onkar docker setup is a little different the fucking living room right now. We're on the Goddamn the big comfy couch. Oh my God marry him. You need to have children show. I would absolutely love that. I feel like it would be co hosted with Nina West I would I would love to work with we'll get into Nino as the back. All that happened this week. We'll entirely. Are you guys originally from San Diego where you guys originally from no I'm from Minnesota Yeah.

Oh my God what is South Dakota even have like a population. The whole State is eight hundred thousand holy fucking Shit Yeah. I don't know how our government to senators they do of course they do. Everybody does how I don't get that okay. Wow that's that's South Dakota one hundred thousand people. There's like at least three cities in the county that are bigger than that yeah for sure. What about you turning so I'm from kind of all over southern California? I've lived in twenty two different houses no military. My mom likes to move a lot but I graduated Protection Program Hotel Anybody <hes> no but I graduated high school in and lived about nine years the longest I've ever lived anywhere and that is in big bear lake up. I love big bear. It's it's a great place to visit but not limb you know the the only thing you can do is go to a movie theater that hasn't been updated in about twenty five. Oh Jesus Christ and you were there for nine years nine years so it sounds like South Dakota. No wonder why you guys work together the second can I could escape from that place I did so I've lived in San Diego about a about eleven years. Now I lived in San Diego for eleven years and I just moved to Palm Springs. How're you liking prompts screens? I'm enjoying it. It's it's different. The the age range is a little different than San Diego kidding. The cool thing is basically after eight PM. You can go anywhere and it's a ghost town any restaurant any grocery store because everyone there is in bed by six. Oh yeah and the time is like six A._M.. When everybody's I am moving to Palm I know I've never gone but everyone's like what never I never made any palm springs? Oh my God we wrote you talking about like stay I. I'm a fucking grandmother like not just that this dedic. I've known you for a while. It is totally scared to pump spring giving you'll be like yes honestly the cool thing about it is all the gay bars they're very clean. Everything is shiny really high class and there's no wait. Wait a minute. I they're calling San Diego Trash. Can I just say I heard it here. First the creator of the now Sandiego Yeah if you want like just a little shiny plates it's good but San Diego has that to you but palm springs is basically almost every venue is like that for sure and you can get anywhere in fifteen minutes and it's also I. I heard I heard that they have the lowest housing costs in all of southern California San Diego Super Expensive Three Bedroom House for two hundred grand there no way really we've been kind of thinking in our friend group to buy compound out there. Yeah I know I know me and RAV sauce around and tiring I would love to and then we could just airbnb at the twenty acres for fifty grand twenty acres of rocky. Yeah I do that like it's kind of a rotating vibe too because you get all the people from L._A.. Orange County so when San Diego Witter's your guys go to within the Gay Community Gay Gayborhood that you love going out when you do go out. That rarely happens for me because I'm always working but yeah it's usually flicks now. Yeah okay I mean it used to be riches but oh gosh rich. As we read says now I haven't been I'm I feel like I'm hi Mike. Why don't you I'm too old? I'm all we johnny girl. Johnny Girl Works. She takes the money she's old yeah. She's she can do. I went to flicks twice this week. I go to flicks in like a year. That's more than I've been there. This yeah like I just went nice where you they're guarantee Tuesday. Okay Wednesday. Maybe Wednesdays Thursday no not well for when Thursday after drag race Miami. How was it it was fine? I got I only got a little bit of anxiety like twice okay. That doesn't ask you because they know you get anxiety. Yeah those bigger Leeann Lixin. Oh Yeah Flex Nope nope not like when I walked lifeless on a welfare Wednesday I like my body starts tensing up.

Hold Court and come to me talk to the people like literally that's it. That's just like it's I think it's address certain drag Queens yeah I mean other drag. Queens are always at flakes y'all wild. You know I'm a grandmother. I'm just lucky because I get to be upstairs and you look at every Wednesday and I'm like good luck down there. What it's it's like from the D._J.? Thing all the mistakes that are going to basically agree grads be breaking away with and the places I go. I used to be the type I would go out Paulie four nights a week I used to do the whole flicks Bourbon Street for the Berber. Wait underwear experienced urban was I used to love. Everybody always has great stories about it. I'm Thursdays. They used to have a wet under work. Yeah Yeah Yeah No. It's gone yeah. I used to live right around the corner from Bourbon for a long day and so those are the thing to do on on Thursdays. Would you go to flicks and then you go to Bourbon and then you go numbers yeah numbers on now L. So it's like a whole different dynamic so when the flame and number remember when the flame and learned how to Deejay is that really they were both open at the same time they're back in the day. I used to have hidden never gone. That was when bar that closed before I remember being open. We just didn't go. We'll do you remember shooters shooters. Be This <hes> Gay bar in North Park North Park. It was true August House true north. I don't bring up day yeah. We're north as it used to be shooters which was a pool hall and they used to the first part of the bar was all pool tables and then you went into this back room and it was a giant dancefloor Gotha night. There and I'm sorry got night. Yes Gotha night yeah the flame used to do it was so bad ass. I let there and you gotta go blonde barred now well narrow. The narrow did something they did a disco gossip night the other night. Okay Yeah we bear night up the marrow now well yeah a lot of stuff from numbers shifted over to the mirror or is it the moreau because some people say them row. This place ain't Nice. It's enough for you to add some sort of taste to it. I love the marrow it's fine but let's go to the floor shall but no we love you the Marrow Moreau. I love it in their low yeah the bar. It's very old school. Oh yeah wouldn't like and I love their space and like it's do some fun shows there. I've done some fun gigs there but yeah they do disco Goethe night like a week ago just blonde bars doing I've been going to blonde bar a lot lately that I've heard that name the run around a lot and a nice little a lot yeah but yeah that's.

Yeah you should go spectrum the last Sunday of every month diversity night. It's fun. It's a nice nice little. It's a nice little pull away from hillcrest same but like I like I can't go to like a straight straight bar because I know you blonde bars like a middle ground around nice any other places you guys like in Hillcrest eateries kind of where do you go for food for me. I would say that Mos- has wonderful food burgers here's ever for and I also really like tacos Libertad nonprofit Taco shop next deflects. They donate all their money to different nonprofit in the back. Yes they're par in the back is wonderful. It's like nineteen. Forties French quarter nineteen forty yeah when people ask me where to go and Hillcrest. I tell I tell them that place but yeah it's a nice reprieve. Just need a break if you don't want to deal with the children talk about children and their drinks are like you know. They're a little pricey ranging twelve to fifteen bucks but they're worth it. They're like all handcrafted so it's it's good stuff. Oh Nice Yeah Yeah and I we and I know wheels not single. Cause your man sitting right here. Have you guys been together twelve years that we've been around longer than iphones yeah me and rob nine years so we're like right right behind you. How about you Charlie? I gotTA boyfriend his last name I saw you when we saw Yada Pride. You were a single. I believe right Yes yes so we've been together since August. I actually yeah and it's it's been great so he he actually lives in Tijuana but he spends all that he spends a lot of time with me. So He's the Nice okay so you guys ripa's drag race. I know let's not spend more than ten. I don't want to give more g set a timer for minute four minutes. That's and I know you guys don't watch. Do you know why why non from working with some of them. I just do the receipt. Let's call the let me go. Who Was it? Wasn't we know what is it sound like. That's my attack. Eleven batch goes. It's Mesh Mishmash. That's right. I can do that every time by the way Oh really yeah some some. My reasoning is is basically I. I watched season three or whichever Jeanson five ah five that was but my main interest was like one through three and I would say when I was outside Mos- I was doing a photos at one of the bars I don't remember which one my car got broken into and it was after the dreamgirls show and a bunch Gotcha these drag queens started coming out and and they were going to say who wills over here just like those say he's like I not to where it's all a lot of them. Were rupaul girls and they all started coming now. Most of them laughed at me and we're like Oh that sucks and kept walking but then there's there's a couple where I'm like like I'll name the one that did help me and that was Morgan McMichael's Cam over over full drag still and was offering the pick glass out of my car. That's so nicer yeah I you know I don't need that. You're too pretty and she's like okay well. If you come to riches later I'm doing this show there. I'll give you free shots and Super Uber Nice but then I went back and I watched her drag race and and I realized that like they meet her like kind of a super bad person and not only that but every time I've seen her perform it's one of the best acts I've seen like she is so high energy in out of the box show but then you watch her on the show and I just feel like they force all these drag queens into a box whereas drag is actually like an artful representation of whatever they want to do but the show like forces them and do a certain style and so I kind of saw behind the fourth wall and that ruined it for me so that that's really interesting because of what the episode that just happened spoiler alert if anybody hasn't seen the newest episode so the bottom two ended up being less and Silky Gosh like we talked last week. The only one I was reading for was Nina Wes show I don't think she had any reason being in the bottom compared to e and Silky and I don't get why Silky still there. I really don't get it so he's a mass the thing I can say about Silky that I thought interesting I remember watching. I haven't seen the actual season I only saw saw the whole introduction videos and Sochi you know kind of made the claim that like she was the first one to do the whole attitude and she's not and she's not as so I go to I go to I go to one of the shows and number one AH city royals and they've been doing it for years had been doing it for years old school we do this by Mitsubishi would have done fucking room. It would have done that I would've I would've been like are you fucking like now called her out so you're so they thought I was going to see I want it to you but then right after the first episodes like nope well. I guess we're GONNA gets worse like in Brooklyn probably going to how 'cause I I mean I and Nina wasn't even worse the worst on that episode her outfits were like <hes> but still honestly I should about both gone home for that. Just I was like wow Nina's west is lip. Sync was just boring. We Silky is just full out a mass mass it was it was bad. How did we hit our four minute? Mark and social media has not been kind of a lot of people are like that like getting on Rupa for making the decision to send Nina West home. They're it clearly tell in that way that they're pushing silky that they really thought America was GonNa love her and they really thought they that and then they're like. Oh Sh- I just thought it was funny when like they did. The final final emanation rupaul just went man like what does that mean that was to that lip thing like I think she's like sometimes. She looks like she over Sochi to like Sophia's ashes like for listeners. It almost looked like it pained her to eliminate any like when I saw the episode I was like ru actually looks like kind of upset about it. I think not just her decision anybody out. There actually thinks that rupaul is the sole sole decision maker on that show then you are Goddamn full fucking they they invested. I feel like they invested in Silky so they're going to push until the end yeah though all the fans don't want it they just they're doing their thing him to me. It's like a beach took it over. I mean to me it's like they're you know you watch American idol and like the one who has the best talent but it's kind of a little bit boring. They always get voted off and I'm like how does that that happen and it's just I think it's based on just what they think. They can sell. America and I feel like with the V._H.. One transition it seems like it's been a lot more of that. What how much more merged can we may know? How can we pushed this plug plug plug the were who makes the best TV exactly exactly just like she said last week God it just left me I in the my o bring Ah anyways but I'm not even GonNa try to remember what it's going to tell you but yeah I think after this last episode I was like I'm good now watching the rest of the season? I totally lost not gonNA finish it. I I'll watch highlights but I'M NOT GONNA like make sure I'm home to watch it on Thursday night. Yeah it's not I. It just really lost me like it's like the Silky being you know we've talked about it and I've been very vocal on this podcast about how I feel about sixty and if you've got anything to say about that well talk to Tony Yeah exactly following me on social media yeah but all in all I mean I love Rupa's drag race and it's just it's it's just wasn't interesting little side anecdote on and that is I go to England a lot on vacation and drag over in Europe is way different drag queens and the and the hip sing live and I remember I started going like two thousand four two thousand eleven two thousand twelve Rupaul wasn't isn't over there until like a year or two ago and so back then all the gays were very just like button down shirts like super kind of basic a little bit now the now the drag rates has infiltrated. It's all all like all these British guys that used to be so uptight or now like you asked Queen and all these they got him dead with my going to England is like right by reprieve from that and that it's a whole aw thing now the culture culture of the gay country the whole thing again that could be a new segment to oh. Actually that's a really crazy point because last time I was in London there I think wilmore's performing like around the block from my hotel and I was like maybe I'll just go check. It out recorded art episode of the podcast when I was over there. The line gene was like three blocks long. Oh Yeah I was like Oh. This is like a thing over here to <hes>. Yeah is a full on their full on celebrities like a drag race queen sell out any venue lines out the door. If they're in a bar the art I ran into Naomi smalls ran into Noy Naomi smalls out of drag at random bar in England and like pictures up the wazoo like everybody was freaking freaking out like it it. It's a whole different thing yeah. I've never seen anything like that for one drag queen but you gotta give it to think about before repulsive drag race came on Oh my God the Gay community careers he's yeah yeah was still like in the closet in a way and now it's become so mainstream so accept it. I mean they're all at the fucking neck gala. I know I know how is that if you think about ten years ago it's how it was. It's really allowed us to go without <unk> out at the fair like we're doing drag shows this year at fairgrounds that have never done one before fair history and because not just the gay community though just out there at the fair yeah it's because now it's just mainstream it's normal and and it's great yeah Rupa's mated for the straight community normal yeah something that has been for us a way of life acceptable normal. You know what I was thinking about last episode. She's just keeps going Hashtag drag race and I'm like how many people that are trying to one instagram all these fucking drag queens in their feed. They're probably so mad and for me like drag. Queens have always been a thing growing up. My mom had a lot of gay friends in college. She was kind of like that girl and and so so like I remember there's a there's a gay friend of the family I've known since I was a baby and I used to watch V._H._S.. Tapes on this little like like twelve inch television of him dressed as miss piggy doing like drag shows in like the early early nineties in San Francisco so <hes> so drag for me. I've always known it which is kind of part of why I avoid the whole. Commercialism is the name of it because it's always been just to me. It's just always been art yeah yeah so so well. How did you get into teaching? I mean like what made you WanNa be a D._J.. What made me want to be a D._J.? Yeah that's kind of a weird one because it really was never in the plan went to school for Horticulture D._J.. How does that happen well? I was a bar back back in the day at the flaming numbers and I met Nick know who owned flaming numbers and he was like hey if I teach you how to D._J.. Will you open for me so I just started and I would go into the flame on like a Tuesday afternoon by myself and D._J.. An Empty Club and just practice and yeah that's just really kind of how it happened right now who are obsessed with music wise. I love hip hop. Yeah Yeah like where you playing or what's getting requested a lot. It's always Cardi B.. In Arianna Guerande makes me WANNA like dial a little bit inside. Because you don't handle it so much. It's like a new fucking single like every week. Are you on the ground. I like her. She doesn't take like a the year. Oh okay but I'm like how many singles are we dropping here. Cardi videos I love cardiac yeah and the city girls city girl that twerk saw with Cardi Bayonet now now now that hip hop idea what's going on for me. It's also hip hop in trap music rap music and stuff you a not expect me to live. I'm really big on Cardi B.. I Love Cardi B.. I converted my boyfriend because he was just like what is this and I'm like it's not for the technical ability. It's just for the entertainment purposes yeah and her random noises but oh I love her random. I mean love harass Herat for me. I got you for me. When I moved to San Diego? I was all about Classic Rock and all I listen to and there's no good stations genesis. There's there's no collins yeah exactly. There's no stations out here I liked they all played like the same fifteen songs and so I started listening to like ninety three and ninety three point three and now I'm just like obsessed with like millennial hip hop music. What do you think about the movie v Cardi B. is going to be an hustlers with J. Lo and her oh man what's her name the one that was in rich Asian Rich Craig Woo yeah she's in the rapper girl or the main character the main character character oh she's also on the boat I cannot wait to watch does sounds amazing because Cardi B. Jaylo together strippers yes? The boys fantasy like my favorite music is Cardi. B. and one of my favorite shows is world of Dance N._G._O.. Is Amazing on that show like if he didn't like her before you were apathetic. If you watch that show you're like she's she's so sweet you all the kids heads and everything yeah she gets and she dazzles every everything I love it. Cardi B. was like a stripper a year ago so it's not gonna be hard. Do we talked about the met gala briefly so besides Cardi B.. Did any of you guys see any of the other people what they were like Lady Gaga Twenty minute entrance anybody I saw I saw some highlights on the Graham. Yeah I just lady Gaga. I was like it was fine the theme for the met gala this was a camp yeah so some of the people didn't understand what camp was no like what does Kylie Jenner while date God. I loved what they wore. It wasn't camping out. I give it to me yeah. They looked great their outfits but was not camp at all Katy Perry's the best of the she was there. She was a burger and a chandelier. It was it was a lot she even had like matching Ching shoes from the Fourteenth Century Yeah. She put like candles on them on them. It was it was it was very Katy Perry. Very what did you think of billy porter coming in. I think Billy Porter War ORW Rupaul should've worn exactly oh yeah with the fucking leader with a bunch of shirtless guys coming in snatched rupaul looked like a piece of fruit or gum yeah it was repod didn't go and drag which everybody pretty much knew how but it was it was like her chance. It's like he her moment to help out her fellow man yeah yeah clean there. Actually she was there too. I forgot about that technically the first drag queen to walk the runway. How do you really feel married? I mean we know the story. Aquaria blocked me on instagram. It's fine. No I just I. I called her out on her shit and she blocked me so you know what I don't like the drama. I'm just kidding. I actually think she's really talented but I liked violet Chachi the whole design that she wore just a giant black lacked love I was that it was a giant black love. Oh I just was like Oh. She was there yeah Americans. She's a bitch like she just like but the thing is like. I don't think she's like I don't feel bad calling her like she is aware aw. She's a bit like she's like that's just how she carries herself like. She's just a bitch. It's her fetig her soul. She's fucking bitch but yeah the I like the the camp aspect of it. I just wish everybody did yeah. Not Everybody was balls would have been nice see what I saw on. FACEBOOK was a lot of people saying oh my gosh everyone's spending all this money on it when they could be carrying world hunger and I'm like and like none of these celebrities own anything their yeah. Their addresses are given free because they're basically free models. They're all on loan. Every single thing on them is on loan. They're not richest TV and shit. We're no don't take it all way to the people that think rupaul actually is the one who decides on this bullshit but sodas all of the other producers writing Ru Paul's checks. I have to say Yup exactly do you think ru Paul's going through these thousands of drag Queens and they take her twenty of them yeah and she gives her opinion and says these and then they go kay. Thank you for your opinion and then I like these. Are Your girls and she's like it's okay. I'm not going to remember naming either why she wears. The earpiece wears an earpiece. They feed her like everything questions to ask. I always wonder if they just like forget. San Diego exists because out evolve drag. I've seen the LO- the local queens are freaking amazing audition so much passion yeah Sandia Queens don't audition for drag race though that yeah they're only three of us that auditioned this year we've found so much more value and local talent when it comes to drag Queens in working with rupaul girls especially when it comes to not just seen Diego Fair like other locations. There's so much talent in the community that you can like us and like show off that mean great. That's wonderful for them that you picked that avenue but there's better people exactly I think so too. I think book a local Book Loco. Thank you on a tank top for twenty four ninety five. I truly believe in that like every Chidi our motto yeah and I was going to say what I find with them is that local Queens actually perform when when a lot of these rupaul girls they get booked for like thousands of dollars and they just go on around and the second half lips think collect some money and walked to the back and I'm like I'm like do you even need these dollars that you're so focused on when you're getting paid thousands of dollars the ones that really are reaching out there bag and walk around with like a dare you talk about Keith's rose in such a fashion girl is Keith takes it one step further she does. She does her number. I love it bit. When we're trying to make some money at slips of on Tuesday nights she'll do nothing but the rent and she has a clutch and she'll open it and have people put the thing in her clutch but then she takes it a step further than she pulls out another clash and gives it to an audience member to hold old no bitch and she's like get up and she's like you this side of the room okay? That's she sends the audience around to collect more tim. She's not a lot of it but you know. There's something about Keith's that it's okay when she bitch it works like people are just guest. Take my money when you look like Keith rose. You can kind of get away with whatever you want. It sounds like she actually makes it part of the performance yeah just just like apple picking. She's not doing picking nothing. She's not holding out of fucking like let's say Christine Aguilera Song with no cuts or anything in it no gimmick and just walking around saying hey put money in my purse. No it goes without bothers like the union hats as around for yeah just like one of the baskets with the longhand pass it along another. Hey Hon do that Wal. It'd be like I'm not performing till this full yeah. I haven't number I wanted to where I collect but it's secret right now to D- Does it too. She does Amy Wine House and she unscrews the top of the whig. It's like not like a WIG thing. The top comes off the WIG. She opens up her skull basically and it's a vodka bottle that she has hidden under there so it's like it's like the joke is like amy wine. Houses hair was so big because you hit vodka and then she does that and then she turns the top of the whig upside down the screwed up and passes it around so that's funny funny incorporated into your bag your thing that's one of my favorite things Tutti does unscrewing the top of the Chug a bottle of vodka and sending it around and having it filled up for a minute back back to the point of booking local Queens I think oh yeah buckle Oklaho- every city should like you should yeah yeah promote the clones in your city hall and like one thing that we noticed what the fair is that actually we get the same draw whether their local or Rupaul oh yeah because nowadays it's just so pop culture that people see drag show and they just WanNa go to it doesn't even matter anymore who is on so if you can get local I mean it does a little bit but I feel like if you get if you get low you can get the local celebrities as opposed to the international ones and still get a really good poll Mitch a Lotta. You're not included. Listen to this for a second thought that they were talking about you. They were not all right. You guys we're going to do a segment. I think we did this. I don't think we did this. What is this donor T._v.? Show Oh we didn't in last week so we haven't done it or whilst donor T._v.. You guys for anybody who doesn't know it is a segment we do and we recommend TV music movies anything to do. While you're completely the stoned off your ass who has one who wants to go. I I'm ready Goma's Mariam. Ti Okay two things you should watch F K twigs new music video for cellophane usually watch that when you're hi it's good and then you should also have already watched season three of the Santa Clarita Diet and if you haven't already you're doing really good. I didn't think it was as good as the second season but it was really good. It was a lot of <hes> <hes> shot the new season love that show for a season three of the South Korea. It's a lot of people but I love season two because it was so God damn ridiculous. Yeah people are all about season three. I need to Rewatch it like I said it was real high yeah yeah yeah so one I will say I got really stoned in the movie theater parking lot last night and went and saw detective Pika Chew. It's bad and I will say that movie is incredible one of the best movies I've seen in a long time if you were like pokemon fan in the early nineties it's going to like hit every single button and you like oh it incorporates reads like a lot of the kind of weird humor is like deadpool and and if you look at the main director and the producer of it and you look at some of the movies he's made back in the early thousands they were all really good and the comedy is a lot the same it was it was amazing amazing movie and I will say that being a little bit under the influence definitely helps a little bit but go see that movie. It's not a single house Ryan Reynolds in it. He was amazing like end the siege I in that it makes you forget it C._G._i.. Everybody works so sleeplessly together in it that you just get sucked into the world and it's it's an amazing movie bash you. Do you have one I do. Have you guys ever seen. <music> salt fat acid. He looks like a cookie settings. I have fucking love the host. She's hilarious like this. What is this yeah I think so what is it called salt fat acid heat? There's only four episodes. She only covers one topic topic per episode. She goes to like Italy Japan. I can't remember what the other two are. I think she goes to Mexico at one point and I think so too but she just like she just devours fucking food and she's just so unapologetic about it but she's really interesting interesting because it just shows like how the balance flavors like I'll play into like what makes cuisine good and there's this one point in Italy. Were they like just cut open a pig and bitches eating fat right off a carcass. It's like amazing and I was like yeah pigs dead on the table freshly and and they're just like getting a knife in Italy and she's like taking a piece of Lardo often just like eating. I'm like Ma'am. You're eating America's right now. It is not even cured. What about you honestly? We watch a lot of Oak Island. When we smoke Hook Island? I've heard of this island and the North North Atlantic where there's treasure I still oak like Oh ak yeah island yeah and what channels is on history channel. Yeah I've seen a couple of episodes though I know what is the premise evidently there's there's some treasure buried. There and people have been looking for for three hundred years and there's like flood tunnels and it's like one hundred feet underground yeah. It's a reality show so these people the reality shows them going to look for this treasure on. It's like six six seasons now and probably because handle can handle it probably because we are high because there's a lot of disappointment there like we found something and it's like these and it'll be like a little piece of paper that could have just blown in or something but mostly we do yard work when you're high high yeah or like smoking flow will like go float in the pool and just perfect. Oh my God that is so it's hard for me to like. Sit there and watch T._v.. I'd just like to go. Are you. INDICA SATIVA HYBRID SATIVA that we're not supposed to make those prejudiced. Oh that's right sorry canary and Saxon. What was what were we supposed to say? It's not strand. Forget what this means every cultivars. Thank you look. This is the show this is my brother-in-law works at mankind so we know a lot AH so oak island is choice. Mine is a Netflix show dead to me. Christina applegate Glitz Glamour told me to watch it amazing amazing one. I'd love Christina applegate so much and if she does not win something for this I sh- she is so good in it and it's with Linda Carter really I think the other girl's name is the crazy ones yeah. It is a good show. Wonder writing is amazing amazing some of the best writing on a show the story premise. Am I gonNA give anything away but there's so many twists and turns and stuff. You don't expect happening in the way the first season ends. I was just like what the Fuck Eh you guys watch or like season so I got really being Robbie got really really stone and we watched it in one weekend and we were like hooked. We were like okay. We're GONNA take a bathroom break and get something to you and then we're coming back watching this show and that's uh-huh did because it was so good yeah everybody watching if anything go watch it for Christina applegate and I love the fact that I don't know if you guys got to this part in the show is in real life. She added double my Secta me because of the breast cancer's Gina applegate yeah they wrote it into the show of her character doing the same thing and so there's a part in the show where she talks about it and you can tell she was not acting pulling from real life experience and I was like Oh my God. She is so check it out dead dead to me. It's called Netflix so yeah. That's not me you guys. Hey so I got kind of like and ask Bash thing what has to take a ask abby thing but ask Gabby asked Pat. I have a friend a straight friend who wants to be a stripper Bachelorette parties and stuff and I was like dude. You need to get gay clientele. They're the ones that the first question how hot is the face wise I face wise as far as like okay like I don't see him like this at all but I put him out like an eight. Embody wise probably around the same okay so he's not attend so he won't make the Good Money Las Vegas stripper type but he's got that little laggy raspy as a little bit door that you know he could no no white Guy Creek okay so he's he's trying to figure it out and I'm like no you gotta go after gay guys. So why would he be a straight guy stripper. There's no place in San Diego you well. That's I guess that's a niche. That could be filled. What do you think I gap? He's hot and he's open to hire them. We actually just had we have a fair coming to visit US next week and one of the people on the team was like are there any male strip clubs in San Diego and I was like Oh seriously and I was like I don't know pullman. Eric has talked about doing this line six years but and also a lot of a lot of go go dancers. Nightclubs are actually straight so that's another avenue he could explore. That's what I told you that you could just go dance on a box and what did he say to that. I don't know he he thinks he wants to. He thinks more money out of private party should arrange a group of gay men for the podcast it'd be his first leg. Yes and yes to come on the PODCAST and T.'s and we will rate him. When the rate the teas irate bit rate any if I didn't phone calls about this focus group yes the focus group yeah okay so so we can ask our listeners if they'd like to be a part of it and I don't know if he would get fully nude think he would for the girls but well well now you gotta bring it? If you're going to bring it okay agree Miriam and I say until he gets fully nude. We'll we'll stream it live and get our listeners to watch and they can give opinions. If this is a career movies you know what I thought you know what I think the solution would be with a room full of drag queens because then he could kinda like it's Kinda like a practice test doing a group of women but there are a little harsher I know a couple of slots I like this idea and the and the critiques will be honest. Oh honey honey. We'll provide the space in the booze and we'll provide the kneepads there you go. I like that that make this work. I think probably make a Cabana abandoned boy for there. You go drag con two weeks you guys. Are you feeling about it. I'm excited. I'm excited on my looks yet Mariam T I. I know you've been busy yeah. I've have just been <hes>. I'm a little I'm not anxious. I just want to get my outfits. Dan You guys go to drake on. Have you been no. That's the weekend before my first fair so nope. That's a whole bucket a no.

I mean it was it was somewhat interesting and fascinating in because i've never i didn't know what it was a lot of good ones out there but i can't listen and sports talk radio mean and george sodano had paul cash. Listen to that you you are not going to happen. He we should start a podcast keyshawn podcast but listening to her.

Just bumble alone sound like he had a lot of cocktails mixed with cocktails on top of cocktail ready to explode at any moment just learning about the whole deal was fascinating to me learning about the parties in malibu where he was. They said he was so cheap that he would get like the littlest list glad like a shot glass basically pour wine in it because he didn't want he didn't want his guest to drink although he didn't want him to drink all on so he would give him teeny glasses eccentric new the day since you're cheap and nuts and then it was like food he would have like pigs in a blanket instead of like real food they would be eating like many hotdogs hotdogs and stuff.

That's interesting anyway well. That's bad. Santa is driven by he's automotive group visit keys cars dot com wirtz huda waking up with keyshawn and his boys. It's kind of like that milk splashing on your cereal in the morning. We were talking about keyshawn on dancing dancing with the stars last segment thirty two years ago today. Dirty dancing debuted in theaters. That travis puts baby in the corner chris. Yeah whatever you dancing does not hold up. It's not great. It's not a very good movie. Soundtrack was good. We'll see feels those very predatory in if you hear road highlights that around the house rosie roadhouse or dirty dancing or ghost he was good and ghost ghost was fine movies. He was good and he was good. He goes. I'm not having that face travis. You can lobby you in trouble girl you. You can like us. I conduct remember goals whoopie goldberg goldberg to me more patriotic remembering the lead pottery wheel travis. There's long before you joined the show. One of our first social media bits was a graphic of the the pottery wheel. It's in your office and l z was holding the wheel and then key was patrick swayze and the graphic. We didn't know christmas really gay. Just what ellie early signs wheels. Linda wheels fell off early early. Signs not a great movie which one thirty dance dirty dancing story about his girlfriend's brother when he woke up all right so s._c. As a starting quarterback no big surprises j._t. Daniels key he was the starting quarterback last year. As a freshman he'll be backed backed up by cardin slovaks who is also a freshman klay. Hilton says we feel confident where we are right now. Feel like we needed to move forward to allow more reps the guys that are going to be in the number one and number two position. I mean g._t. Dennis was okay as a freshman. He wasn't great. He wasn't terrible as a fresh look like a friend. He looked like a freshman. Quarterback have bright moments title given much to do why eight three has some nice throws at times though i'm not gonna take anything away from him taking it away. I just didn't feel like they put a lot lot on his plate like they were giving him throws that he was comfortable with not unlike what we're talking about with the early part of the preseason we're going to give you some stuff that we know you can do the job some success with because when they fell behind signed which they fell behind frequently and they had to push a little bit. He felt like he wasn't quite ready. Like the thing to me is when i look at a guy like j. T. dan's comes in as the true freshman in starts now remember. He wasn't a part of spring practice <hes> last year he didn't go in spring. He came in the fall so he didn't get a bunch of work guys in the springtime so i'm acceptable. It's acceptable for me to to accept what he did for them last year here at the quarterback spot because if you if you take him in you move him to. Let's say a clemson team where i'm not taking anything away from trevor lawrence. I think trevor lawrence. It's had a terrific year and you know all poster boy in the whole deal but if you put him in the s._e._c. offenses s._c. Different or because of the way that they utilize n._j._i._t. Daniels were they utilize trevor lawrence the same way so you gotta look that way. You know you look at j._t. Danny as if he's clemson on net loaded team you you know it does he look like trevor lawrence luke yeah so that's how i look at it but the interesting thing about all of this quarterback hoopla's you knew j._t. Dans is going to be the starter sure so why played a game just name the movie why new jalen hurts was going to be the starter so just name star just trying to keep your young players engaged is that would it is like hey. Maybe i can steal this thing. Maybe i can do because you're right there was the only story would have been if j._t. Daniels wasn't the starter now we the only store right but why do why pretend that it's an open competition. I have no idea why coach is do that but for me the story us jack sears in matt fink guys that have been there being being in the program understands coach elton but you allow a true freshman from arizona to come in and get your lunch now. Is this guy better than him or are. They study the way they needed to where the filling like. They were gonna lose anyway so they didn't put it all in that. Their mind is i'm transferring. I'm done with this. What is that because for true freshmen come in off the streets for guys that have been in a program to lose out and become he come three and a four quarterback when you've been the two and the three that just says a lot about their growth as player since they've been at u._s._c. catering outfit it. Can i not say it says a lot about slopes that he's that good that he jumped him yeah but it is hard for me to jack sears play last year. I was like okay cool the number i you know i thought i thought when i saw him as backup quarterbacks that they would have starters then maybe they could turn in grow into something you you know what it is to it and going back in watching u._s._c. and watching the way that they played like you talked about key had you just flip flop daniels and lawrence just take lawrence and put them in l. a. a. and put daniels in clemson and see what happens and i still feel like. Clemson's had a great deal of success and i still feel like u._s._c. would have struggled because because because it's not the quarterback it's not the trigger guy on this whole thing. It's the fact that what they were asking him to do. There was nothing about it that looked dynamic and exciting and threatening. It was very basic in easy and that's not j._t. Daniels fault that's the coach's fault well yeah tee martin's not here any longer the receiver for coach at the university of tennessee now and incomes herald graham. Who's the new office coordinator who brings the air raid offense from north texas so oh you got a little bit of that going on with this this team and you know everybody that i've talked to for the most part on the office side of the ball at u._s._c. feels like that. They got some high octane offense getting ready to unleash the pac twelve but that's in practice as i told one person that's that's practice of course. He looked high octane in practice because there's all scripted the scripting defense against the offense. They know what's coming so yeah. It looks like it looks like you guys. Put up a whole lot of points but we'll see come come august thirty first at seven o'clock at night when you take the field in a new renovated coliseum against the fresno state bulldogs this coming off a ten win season yeah. They're are fresno state's. A good program. Fresno state wins games fresno state is going to come in and play hard. They're not going to be scared and let's play it out. Let's say that the offense doesn't look dynamic. Let's say that the offense looks stale. Let's say that s._e. Maybe they even win key. I mean if they lose. We all know what's going to happen. Maybe they won't have have you ever heard u._s._c. and a maybe a fresno's freedom but anthony time to the point is is that let's say the games thirty one to twenty eight in fresno state state has a chance to win the game. They don't miss feel the end right. We're we're starting on clay helton week. Wow this is why i keep and i'm not trying to push clay helping out it just never understood why they put him in this position to begin with where from the opening game if he doesn't go out there and put up forty points against fresno win the game forty two to ten. We're gonna be talking about what the hell are. Are we doing with this guy. Well i had a throwaway line to take you to shake it and it wasn't that much with throwaway line because when it comes to the heisman trophy conversation you have to streams that usually comes together towards the end of the season. You're the one stream we have the prohibitive favorites and then you have like a guy or two who comes out of nowhere and j. T. daniels i used to me is implying position to be one of those out of nowhere guys because s._e. Is coming in with lower expectations. The night even ranked in the a._p. Preseason top twenty five and those two things that allows that if they do better than expected vinegar. I look for justification for them doing better than expected and that's that's how you get a guy like a j._t. Daniels in that conversation because if he plays well and as he wins games they're supposed to win perform better than what people are projecting the perform they gotta justify cheated them so poorly the beginning of the season by saying j._t. Daniels is a heisman trophy winning quarterback. I agree with the theory. I i myself and i agree with the theory. The problem is u._s._c. should never ever be in the category of their better than we expected well. I'm jay answers the that's where they are. No one has ever seen who's better than we thought. There'd be alabama ohio state oklahoma. Wow look at these guys. They came out of nowhere. U._s._c. doesn't come out of nowhere u._s.'s the guy that shows up at the beginning and says worth the top of the stack dairy tanaka saw. You shouldn't have to sneak up on anybody there u._s._c. It secretly doing a morning show on some other radio station. We explore the answer coming up next on the morning. Show uh-huh so kenny didn't have a huge part but he was a little bit. We're no one had a huge part michael. I like that yeah and wino- only seen that one little thing throughout the hook joel tina turner earner actually the biggest charles michael michael glitters bruce springsteen anything part yeah. Those are the three biggest parts. Stay right there. I'm being cooled. You would have been all right all right. We'll crazy. I know but if you just stay right there saying to not be crazy. It's it's not gonna work crazy crazy in there but if you just say to her you can accept that here's the warwick come on come on willie. We are the official morning. Show of we are the world. We've played this more on this. Show then nineteen ninety four when nelson kenny rogers said l. gerard gerard smooth al jarallah look like the dude on e._s._p._n. God bless guy bruce. We need to get into wishes you a date. Our live game to the show to the we are the song eighties pop is that kenny loggins loggins conglomerates. It was big in there all right harry's journey yeah so the new dancing with the sharks cast out in keyshawn you were looking looking up surprised yeah because lamar oldham yes on it. Louis not just was like oh. They're both going to be better than you did. Christie brinkley it exactly what steve wrinkly yeah kristie kristy. Oh you live in the uptown girl. Whoa what brinkley yes i do. You know christie brinkley. No sold old the other day the night that i sent you guys talking chocolate martini pitcher yeah i ran into randy garber and cindy crawford. Okay in randy's probably listening but i'm the anyway i ran his wife. S still i crazy of course she is just crazy. I was like look you don't go from being the face of generation for supermodels one of the most beautiful women in the world to not that of course she is just as vice had a good foundation asia yeah. She's a good start and then go anywhere though you know most of them. They're gonna pull it back. They're going like giggle yeah. They start pulling a face back trying to chop off their nose. They're gonna start doing everything in their daughter. It's cindy's twin gyi cindy crawford. It's amazing 'cause amigos tequila tuckey by the way. Here's your waiting informally before. I got some want him to think that i was giacchini doing that. We are the world that real quick. Here's the part they play the video video. It's time to harmonize floor cindy lauper. I liked careering that were throwing everybody off line richie coming around and booth multiple times. Can you just do it right now. We'll give it aside. I michael was was done. Michael had had enough understand harmony. Odell key says that he said he was done talking about the giants that apparently was not true in an article in sports so straight and he says that this wasn't no business move. This was personal. They thought they'd send me here to die because releases on dance i i. I don't know if they sent him there to die because the browns were getting better the browns had pieces. The browns have good players yeah but but what what what happens is not is not about. It's not about dying from a football standpoint. Socially is dying from a social standpoint and a marketing standpoint. This is what general majid try to. They want to send you to buffalo to make you feel the pain because in their mind they think you desire being in the spotlight so much that there is no other alternative for you when i was being traded for from green being traded from the jets one of the teams that came up was the green bay packers and parcells to not going to happen. I'll stay home because he knew that that would be a trigger point for me. He thought better yet yeah. That would be a trigger point for me to say man. I'm just gonna come back to camp. I'm just gonna come and play because i don't want to be in green bay but but he also knew that i don't mess around and when i say the i'll just stay home eat fried chicken and come in later on at three hundred and fifty pounds and then you gotta pay me anyway so it was like okay well. We gotta move him somewhere. That's more desirable desirable. Even though we don't get everything that we think we can get. We'll still take those two ones for him because otherwise he's gonna stay at home. You're the reason why i it was personal is because they understood. They understood the psychology of beckham. Two year understand that he loves the spotlight he nightlife. He loves me department and clubs and stuff like that so we jason you to cleveland. You not get any hidden on that. You're gonna be stressed out. You'll me missing means. You're gonna be hopping on private jets to get the new york and other places in miami's and this and that we all slow that down and it's going to ultimately hurt your game on the field. Well what i was saying that is it could potentially backfire on the giants because if in fact they have a good season already on national t._v. a number of times they have a good season. All of a sudden odell beckham is back in the national spotlight like he was already the g. Q. covers in all of those things came pre new york giants. They had already made their mind up in a decision that we're going to use him on the front of g. G. q. dating even come up with this just now all of a sudden well. Let's put him on the front g. Q. is in cleveland now yeah. That's the physio still selling. He's still selling right now. 'cause he just left new york he. He hasn't been gone but six months so he's still able to sell in a big market. I get that nothing is like new york city when it comes to the ability to market and the ability to do things like the met gala that that we were talking about those things our exclusive new york l. a. to l._a. Has its but they think remember what i always tell you. The owners of general managers and the coaches think something about you. They will try to use it against <hes>. That's why when they think players i spent the ball their money. They noted got you sure and they go negotiate rather than negotiating good faith. They're negotiating almost to hurt you because they know how bad you need it but if they go to if he goes to clean cleveland is a million light years away from new york socially but if he goes in there and they tear it up and they're good people are going to be all casino in eight to say. Did you just say not the same rat trap travis in eight the same no not him though not the city. I should say but him no no no no. No the stakes in new york are different in the stakes in cleveland boy. I watch them microphones. You never know what's going to happen especially on a day. We're celebrating ever given away a a four pack of tickets to the l. a. f. c. game every hour. That's right sunday's up. That's labor day weekend september first l._a.

This is the first time i've ever seen the phrase blaxploitation yes all right so it was one of the first time you say most iconic blaxploitation on 'em really okay v._h._s. Over and over and over again more than vanessa at the del rio man we had just discovered vanity prince introduced us and said hey world look at this. They go deep like that vanity. She was beautiful beautiful vanity rap bologna bologna. Ooh oh no oh sheila e valley all he did have a he did have the same light skin ended. He had a look that he liked even the young lady that he married that that i think the one that he married to answer that was on <hes> had the little show whatever ex wives hollywood or whatever she looked like so they all kind of had the same kind of look at polonia was sick. She was sick. Yeah no vanities the right answer answer right. You're not looking at the whole package. I'm just gonna have to war. Perhaps got scroll down. We've got the war here. Let me see the big airy quick google search okay okay so this is what i got for vanity here very quickly you giving me a wikipedia page on this is apple. Oh no <music>. You're not doing it right travis. Don't you give me a minute to do my research. This is all new girl. That looks like abalone pocahontas honest well. What was the one girl that looked like abalone. I'd my i was i'd like to change. My answer ought to change my answer. You know the one. I'm talking about what we think of it during the break. What does she do she. She was in a she was in a movie with like a western movie ego know exactly it'll tell you don't worry about it. We'll come. I retold chaplain. That's right answer. Yeah i trust you. I should have trusted you guys know sometimes. I like to do my eyes water boston. Oh the temperature episode three of hard knocks last tonight. The raiders it was the antonio brown show it was the jon gruden show those guys go back and forth and then pretending to love each other and maybe they do love each other at least for now and jon gruden gruden he had been a distraction to me at all. I mean eight break anybody but we we've known what what what the status is regarding his feet. He just showed up with frostbite. I've never had a guy show up with frostbite. <hes> unfortunately we got that thing under control and this grief is saying is is no laughing matter. It's really important to them and there's nothing wrong. Support your players. Thanks that they believe. We also understand the league's position but <hes>. I'm confident that he's he's going to be a heck of a player for us. The love in between those two guys on the show key was it was obviously a put on for the cameras just as a quick aside. I don't know if i've ever seen i've watched hard knocks since it came out a million years ago. I don't know if i've ever seen with the possible exception of jerry jones anybody play more directly to the cameras than jon gruden but but the fact that he and antonio brown had for each other. It did seem real. It's gonna be real. I mean he's gonna his toy. It's his new his important to him getting man for a number of reasons to show people that we made the right decision by paying them the money and in pittsburgh and you and mike tomlin see this is why you deserve to be an assistant coach. It's not a head coach because you guys don't know what you're doing. He wants to do all of that. <hes> he wants to try to prove points and he wants to also try to win football games and having anto brown healthy and on the field gives you your teen a better chance to win those football games. It was interesting too because there's shows runs about a a week behind right from the time that this thing is put together the time that we see it on tuesday nights. It's about a week fine so the second wave of antonio brown your enter your route was shoehorned in at the very end of the episode yeah and come back in and you said you said it that he'll be here sure enough. We found it yesterday. He's at practice. He's working out out. Your crystal. Ball is still functioning when it comes to win. Guys are showing up to pick up their money. It's one of those deals. Where if you if you're really listening to the message that's being delivered. It's it's he's saying you know inner. I'll he saying. I don't know if he's going to be here with us on week one but he's also saying in a coded language. That's all colds holds and they could break it all the way now. Get your ass here because if you don't get your money that's that's what i was saying it. It worked in domestic. I gave utah wins yesterday. He ain't a nearby wednesday will do something to him and he was in by tuesday. Yes he was in a schedule -solutely other part that kind of jumped out at me too was had nothing into the raiders. The raiders happened to play the cardinals on last thursday night monday night football and cuyler murray we saw that he looked a little overwhelmed that game looked a a little fast for him but the moment that he and antonio brown had after the game where they were kind of just checking in with one another <hes> that hey man you set the houston. The house that you guys brought everything. I think it was a well. What did you think was going to happen dude. What did you think they were going to do. This is the n._f._l. Knows the preseason and there's not a full game plan but they just weren't going to let you run around out there like it. It was flag football of course they were going to be and it just made me think he's unprepared and it's as much on him. As it is the head coach it is but i think the head head coach has to get him prepare for what's gonna happen. Week-to-week doing preseason games regular season games that the is going to have to be an adjustment period that is not going to be six or seven ever for forty four yards. It's not going to be easy this this. This particular team that you're gonna face is now getting ready for the regular season and they start to install install certain blitz packages so it's like anything else you go. It's like a rundown basically in you. Go you start off and you say this is well. We're gonna do this period. This is what we're gonna do this time. This is what we're gonna do right here right then and there in game one game two. We need to start putting our blitz packages together other so we can start to get a look at what makes sense what doesn't make sense about certain fronts that we face what you know so you start to build up on regular season in in week three. You're going to see something a little different but a little more steam it in week four. You won't see anything because you'll have like scrubs out there. They'll just play vanilla again again like they did in week one and then you have a cooling off period before the regular season starts. Now you really start to gain plant so if you click kings bearing arizona cardinals arnold's and you're sitting there and you're trying to convince us that you're not gonna show anything. You're not gonna do anything into a week one way to they get a load of you week. One yeah well well. That was the thing look. I understand that the game's gonna go faster the rookie quarterback's. I don't care how good of a quarterback you are if you're a rookie quarterback in the n._f._l. You're gonna be overwhelmed at times peyton manning. It happens to everybody but it was one of those oh man moments that not that i played poorly but i didn't think thank you guys. Were going to do that to me. It was it was the lack of preparedness not so much the performance that made me go oh and especially with the coach but they're also is and by the way i think the name looking for salli richardson key salary yeah. How did you find that the twitter's they they knew tom in saudi arabia's yeah that's that's that's that's the thing though about colin murray's because this is only his second preseason game that you can go and and tell him everything but being told about something and experiencing something is different so i'm not sure if cliff didn't prepare him but at certain point you can't be prepared for experience morning. Show much better feeling more banker. This is what i'm talking about.

Did Blackout TuesdayMovementMiss the Point?, James Corden's Emotional Conversation - Daily Pop 06/03/20

"Welcome to daily pop. Protesters are still striving to be heard, but are there signs of hope I'm? Aaron Lim joined by Morgan Stewart and Justin Sylvester. Hype, Hey guys, let's talk about yesterday. Yesterday was blackout Tuesday and many people companies united to help fight racial injustice on social media. You probably have seen that. People were posting simple black squares to show their support. was filled with this. How did you guys feel about seeing this blackout? It was definitely for me I just had to educate myself for a second because I was a little bit confused on being completely transparent, because there were so many mixed messages. From the people that I followed, some people were first of all my time line was all black squares, but then I had people were posting stories, saying that that completely defeats the purpose, and that now's the time to be vocal as vocal as possible, and so then I ended up realizing that you can still post the block square which I did, but really that doesn't mean that you're silent and taking the day off social media. It's really time to. To educate yourself learn from people that are friends of yours or people that might know more than you do, and take the opportunity to support your black friends, black businesses, black artists, entrepreneurs, and so on and I think that that's what I ended up doing, but at first I was definitely a little bit confused on sort of the right way to go and make sure that I was posting something that was in line with what I truly believe it's. A lot of people were confused on what to do and I think that happens a Lotta Times because there's so many different messages out there, but in the grand scheme of things it's a show of solidarity. Even though he tried to make a cake, we ended up making cookies and it still good. We're still gonNA eat them, but it's just a different thing and I think what it. It started out as is hey, we're going to put up these black squares to show that we are not posting anything and we're GONNA let the black voices and black black people really speak out about what is going on and I'm here just to listen and to not over excite. My feet would other things than that. That's what it was supposed to be however if he added. Ready and I will take it. Yeah I think. A lot of people were confused at first and two. There were hashtags that were being misused. Some people were using Hashtag black lives matter which was. Not Allowing people to get the information that they needed for the protests or to see what's going on in the world right now, so a lot of people had to kind of check each other and say like hang make sure you are hash tagging blackout Tuesday. And you know it was interesting because I think a lot of people finally saw that it's no longer okay for me to just post myself fees, and to forget about what's actually happening right now in that is this movement now is not the time for you to be posting about black lives, matter or at the issues at hand, and then following that story up with you doing whatever it is, you're doing at home like that to me. I mean the fact that that common sense wasn't just sort of within people was. Quite surprising to find out, but I do think that that was the benefit. It was like promoting yourself. Stop talking about yourself and mixing in black lives matter in the issues just focus on how you can learn and be a better person, a better advocate for the injustices that are happening. Yeah, exactly one hundred percent and I've said this time and time again. We cannot be upset when people don't do it the right way. Don't follow directions fully this. We're Americans. You never fully read the directions on the back of a inverse for what this is. Is it starting conversations it starting? Hey, girl, what's the blackbox about? Should I post it and say yeah? Maybe on CNN and see what's going on. Yes. I will say that from my boyfriend who is black? It meant a lot to him to see his white friends or non black friends posting to show their support. And it really meant a lot to him. I don't know how you felt about the Justin but It really showed people coming in full support. One hundred percent I totally agree with him and I'm here for. Are. You guys moving onto Liam Michelle. Who is under fire right now? So Leeann tweeted in support of black lives, matter and a former glee co star, one in on her Samantha wear has accused her of making her life a living hell while glee, accusingly of telling everyone. She would quote bleep in her wig. Then former glee co stars amber, Riley and Alex Newell Posted memes Seemingly Supporting Samantha. and. There was a lot of other likes that I have seen from her former CO stars. We reached out to Leah and her team for comment, but we should know that at the time of our taping. Lia has not addressed these claims, and also because of this controversy hellofresh released a statement saying they have ended their partnership with Lee effective immediately. Does this you guys This escalated super-quick. Look. I think a lot of companies right now are looking for ways to save money in this covert nineteen moment and a lot of companies don't have time to do research or background, because they know how fast cancel culture words, and how quickly people can jump on the bandwagon. hellofresh was saying hey, we can cut that. Let's cut that right now. I will however say. When I was a teenager. Even into my young adult years. I, did some pretty terrible, and said some pretty terrible things because I was angry, I felt alone I was hiding a secret that I was gay and I was not the happiest person and I've had to apologize for certain things. If I was famous at a young age. I think I would not be the easiest person to deal with I wouldn't certainly wouldn't somebody's way, but I wouldn't be the and you know we. Again about you know oh Leah's. This! Is You know? We heard it from nine Rivera in her book. I have not experienced that Relief Michelle. She's always been nice to me. I am not saying that it takes away from what everybody else is saying. What I don't want this to do is take us away from the central message that we are trying to figure out right now, and that's how to get justice for all of those people who died at the hands of police officers, and sometimes the village could get sidetracked and bring the torches out there. That's keeping. Let's being in formation. Let's put this on the back burner and we'll come back to. Yeah I agree with that I don't think now is the time to start attacking people for past mistakes I think it really is the time to bring everybody up to speed educate people allow people to learn from their mistakes. Allow people to grow I'm sure that we've all said things that we didn't mean or didn't realize the weight behind them. look I think. Think what people are tweeting are really horrible. Horrific things I'm curious to know of any of the women that are tweeting. The Michelle taken her aside, and had that conversation with her face to face before it was on twitter, and basically said look what you've said how you made me. Feel is not acceptable and I'm not cool with that, so that's just where we. We don't have the full story I mean Justin and I have talked about this daily pop for a year canceled. Culture is not something that I think both of us believe in I. Think People Are Allowed to make mistakes. Not Saying that what she said was okay. I just hope that this doesn't become an attack on everybody doing the wrong thing at one. One point it's really just about moving message, for which is what justice had focusing on the issues that need to be corrected for the rest of time, but let me add this in before we get cut up I. Just want to point out I've read some of the messages, and I'm not saying this right, but what I will say, it seems like she was. She was equal opportunity. Because I saw some girls in. They're like Oh my! In my time was that. So I don't know if it's much of a race situation, I think that is being maybe flooded by. The media, but I would like to give Michelle a chance to say her side of the story to maybe even say you know maybe I was a bit of a diva. Maybe I was a little bit of a tour and I apologize. I think it's not about what people are S. it's about how they've grown from it right? Yeah, and maybe we don't know. Know her well enough to confirm these things or to say that she wasn't A-hole or whatever it was, but the people closest to her. Her former CO stars such as Abigail Breslin, who liked a couple of the tweets? She just recently got an follow from both Kiki. An Arianna so if you do enough research on twitter all. I've literally fell into a spiral. We'll see. More shocking stuff, but yeah. I think she's going to have to be the one to comment about next. Yeah, all right well. We'll be right back with more daily. Jimmy Fallon has. Apologized for wearing black face during a Saturday night live skit back in two thousand last night, Jimmy opened the tonight show with a somber monologue also spoke with Don. Lemon kept getting advised was to just stay quite into. Not say anything, and that's the advice because we're all afraid, so I thought about it. And I realized that I can't not say. I'm horrified and I'm sorry and I'm embarrassed and I realized that the silence. Is the biggest crime that white guys like me and the rest of us are going. Staying silent, that's exactly would. We all need to do. Is Examiner cells? And that was really honest. Very. Brave of you've real Jimmy is right. He probably could have got away with it. You think so. He apologized last week on twitter and on Lemon says we need to stop beating up people for their mistakes. You think that this would have just gotten buried forever and would never have resurfaced. Dustin. I think with everything going on. I! Think people know publicist. No agents know how to really mitigate some of the pain and some of the backlash, so they probably made it made him put out an apology on a Friday. It would have got lost in the news media by. Monday could've got away with it what I love about. About Jimmy Fallon is Jimmy. Fallon said you know what it's not right for me to stay silent. Let me be a protocol a proctor of change, and that's what he did I also think him doing what he did. On snl I mean to me that you know. Obviously, it was the wrong thing to do I'm sure he knew better. I. Obviously, you know we've gone back and forth on this topic of comedy. We now live in a world where everybody is really very aware of the things that they're doing and trying to send the. The right message but when I think back to Jimmy Fallon having to do that on us now I see that as a group decision. There were a lot of other people besides Jimmy. Fallon okayed that to be on air, so I don't really think that he should be. The only one held responsible and I also think when you are a comic. You're in comedy. Really are supposed to speak your truth your truth, not that that was what he was doing, but it's not a PC job. You know you really are supposed to make people. People Laugh and a lot of that really does usually stemmed from somebody's personal pain, so look everybody. Jump on everybody right now. Nobody is perfect. Everybody has made mistakes I think. He handled it correctly. I think he apologized. He faced it. He owned up to it. You can tell that he's being than take about it and and I respect them for it, but it doesn't. I do really believe that like s also just as equally responsible and not just Jimmy Fallon I think if he went on and supported and said black lives, matter and Didn't confront. It would come out later and people would say wait. Why were you silent? Are you racist? Are you proud of this? What? What were your intentions? So I think it was important for him to get in front of it and you know he has been very publicly forgiven by a lot of his famous celebrity friends year, but this is what we need to do, and we have to take a page out of metoo movement when people were seeing, you know productions and films and studios. Studios with like vary outward disrespect towards women. They demanded that you make a donation like are you gonNa make a donation to the me too movement, and ca and companies like Sony, and all these really big major networks were making these donations. Let's stop trying to cancel people and let's talk to Lorne Michaels and say you'll learn tuck it. Let's get some cash outta here so we can educate more people about right. It's not okay to do black face. We need to stop asking for cancel Asia's. Las. that. Because if you're if you're so quick to cancel people, then they become scared, and then they don't speak up when it's the right time to speak and I also think what's going on with a lot of people I think that looked like me is really it's not even about people focusing on the message of George Floyd's death and inconsistent racism racism. That's gone on in this country. It's more about like. I'm white. What I'M! I'm not racist and I needed proof that she was quickly as possible instead of really taking the time to sit in what's going on, educate themselves and really learn about what's happened and what we can do to not have that continue. There's another powerful video that's going viral right now. It's a desert barnes who was an administration aid for President Obama here. She is taking a stand against the looters and the rioters I don't. You? Neighborhood To The corporation take. But. Come on this lung. This video you need to set aside five minutes of your day and go have watch this entire. Video because it is beyond powerful, every single word she says is so important, and this was filmed by photographer, Dan, larue, who captured the video before even knowing who she was, he tracked her down and shared the moment on social media. How do you guys feel about what she said I have been there where you are dead asleep and somebody wakes you. Up and you cannot wait to light into and I think a Lotta times when we see looters, and we see people who are vandalising. It's not just people of Color. It's not just black people. It is white people. It is ladder people and a lot of times. We just get frustrated that time and time again. People are blaming us for the looting and for the criminal intent. It's true. Come on my block and start this. Take it to people who you are upset with not me, not my community because we're in this. Together, so the most frustrating part is that we are sitting here. We are protests in peacefully yet. You're only showing images of black people, looting, and and being defiant. Show the real images and tell those people why it doesn't make sense to do this and she. Yeah, she even called out the people who are around her as saying. You don't even look like me like you are not me. You were not here for the right reasons like you're GONNA go tear down a charging station that a local homeless man needs. Needs like you're gonNA terrorize like all of these locally owned businesses around here that people of color own like that is not right and so i. think everyone is out there protesting. Make sure you are out there for the right reasons, do not spoil this for everyone because it can be powerful if we're not being destructive beside George Floyd, there have been other controversial deaths recently. Do you think this will finally ignite change? Look at the point in our society where there was a tipping point where Americans really realized. Realized that we cannot stand anymore and let this happen and not say anything, but it's also becoming a tipping point for law enforcement to educate themselves on. How is this continuously happening so I think it's a tipping point where it's going to come together finally and hopefully. Yeah, I agree. I really do I think that I just I. Obviously this is not an isolated incident. This has been happening for thousands and thousands of years and I. Just think that people are finally. I have never felt such momentum behind something in. In a way that even for myself to feel the need to be more involved and understand what's going on so I really do think that obviously the events that have happened have been horrific and unimaginable, but I do think the positively coming out of them is that there really is going to be real changed change and I think people police officers. Obviously, there are good police officers, and there are bad police officers, but there's going to be zero tolerance for police officers. That behaved the way that man did exactly. All right still ahead. We've got some amazing acts of kindness you won't want. How you doing rich. crazy I. don't know feeling so much simultaneously. It's crazy. I have this history. I in the black community in the Midwest that I don't access a lot because there's a lot of. Pain emotion there. Hard. So we'll just traveling. What is a platform? For Good. It's. Yeah I go in and out. On. Ho sorry that you'll feeling is. I would give anything to be. Held rapture. Musician Reggie Watts on CBS is the late late show with James Corden. I'm pretty sure. I have one of those moments like this on this show and I can feel and I know exactly where this guy's coming from because. You're taught to harbor end to make excuses for why you've gone through things like this and you're taught to be a man and just get over it and move past the, and it's not until you're confronted with this head on like we are right now in this world, and it only takes at one time for you to dig just a little bit in there, and it all comes out. I had the same reaction around the Kobe Bryant situation just. On. You know dealt with feelings about don't death of my father and the own. You know debt of part of myself and I'm doing it and I'm having it right now. With this whole thing happening with George Floyd so I, feel for Reggie and I feel for James Corden because I know that he wants to be there for me like. In Morgan were there for me during their? Kobe Bryant time. Thought. It was great that they had that conversation in that. People like James are just wanting to learn from their friends who? have been living this reality for a lot longer than you know. A lot of people have been aware really all of the heavy news. We wanted to end the show with some more positive stories first up. We have football player Zeta-jones. He tweeted about a moment that happened to him. A reads quote. I was just out of local home. GOODS STORE WITH MY cousin getting furniture for my place. When an elderly white woman approached me at the checkout counter, she looked at me with tears in her eyes, and then said I'm from Minneapolis and I. Just want you to know you matter to me. It instantly evokes that emotion out of you and you. Just you kind of breathe a sigh of relief that there is good amongst all of the horrific bad that we've been experiencing. It's just nice to know that people like that woman exists just know that women probably felt uncomfortable doing that, but she pushed herself to let that person know just in a little way. How much they mattered! That should really make you people go out and do the same thing. Yeah and other really inspiring person, DC, resident row will do be opened up his doors to dozens of protesters. They were getting pepper sprayed. He sheltered, nearly seventy strangers overnight due to the curfew that was set in place i. mean that is incredible. If you can do that, shoot do that. That is really something to be. Admired more than I would do, I'd be like I don't know nobody. Here's bill your some water. With you don't have to pay me back, but also. How big is that house? Yeah Right. You guys i-love-you. Everyone watching. We love you. Thank you. We'll see you guys tomorrow.

Episode 84: Rihanna doesnt brag - which is why we love her

"Today on we here there's no shortage of celebrity Faux Pas, but Riyadh continues to top our list of stars who lead by example. Leah Michelle is being accused of making her former Glee co-stars life, a living, hell and Tim Gunn has finally embraced comfortable clothes coming up next on, we hear. Oh my God. Divorce slashed. Page six hundred field that. Hey there. I'm Maggie toddling Jeremy. Ignore and welcome new era of six podcast. We hear all the celebrity dirt marks, sources, and you hear the story behind the story Yeah Maggie. We've talked about celebrities. VN during the coronavirus pandemic, and now into more recent events in the protests that are going on around the nation, you know celebrities are stepping up here and there and some are sort of falling off a cliff when it comes to either expressing their opinions to the public about what's going on or some taking action in some cases, and as you said in the top. Top of the show Riana continues to to really be impressive, and she's donated a lot of money and put her money where her mouth is, and she's kind of really showing I think a-list celebrities how to how to help people I guess yeah back in March when York City was first coming to terms with how serious the corona virus outbreak was reality, stepped up and threw her foundation. She donated five million dollars to be distributed across hospitals and healthcare workers, and to get people the resources that they needed. Yeah, and then soon after that after her foundation's donation. Jack Dorsey, the twitter head team to donate four point two million dollars in aid to domestic violence victims during the coronavirus pandemic. At first, it felt like fans weren't actually that happy about this. Though so back in April when we were really seeing all these things she had done to kind of help. Those affected by corona virus. She was on Instagram live, and her fan was telling her wares. New Music like people are so hungry for our nine riotous ninth. And she said if one of your mother asked me about this album one more time when I'm trying to save the world, kind of like was pissed about it which. Only to keep delivering her philanthropy despite a little backlash from fans, we was this the same ron album that everyone's been waiting for this entire time because I remember for the past couple of years. I feel like anytime. RHIANNA has said anything. People are badgering her for this album. It's the same album that has now. It's still hasn't come out and there's been rumors like maybe it will. will be a reggae album. Maybe it will be a totally different mentor from what she's done before, but there were no answers. There is no album, but if the album has to be on hold, so she can save the world, we can wait. Yeah, and it isn't that much of an understatement I, mean she? She's also spoken out pretty powerfully in the wake of the death of. Floyd. End is sort of leading this charge on June. Second of having a blackout where her her company Fendi and she are taking actually taking the day off completely and not pushing anything on social media to raise awareness so I. Guess we'll see what she does next. I'm sure she has more more plans. mean cheese giving away money right and left anything that we've seen this thing yesterday. We were talking about where we've talked about on this show. Hurrell Williams when he was urging fans during the coronavirus pandemic when I head, you know to donate money. DONATE PCP and people quickly turn on him than yesterday. We were talking about Virgil Abloh. The fame streetwear designer turned top also fashion designer. At lvmh, and how he donated fifty bucks, which is less than a pair of? Socks, some fans were pointing out so really has put her money where her mouth is I think also get a one thing we've seen in the past few years with celebrities is similarly to like every celebrity. Having your every movie star for example has their own production company. You know in some some of them. Actually do things in some of them seem really just more like vanity projects. I think. We seen this too with celebrity. Celebrity foundations. You know it's like every star out. There has a foundation and with some. It's kind of unclear of what these foundations are doing. We have run some stories over the past years of celebrity foundations, which ended up being you know kind of mismanagement, certain ways, because just because you're famous doesn't mean you're able to run a a nonprofit charity organization properly or that the people on your team are qualified to run a nonprofit. In the case of Rana have to say when she first started her foundation, which is named after her grandmother. Of course you know I was a little bit skeptical, because as I said every single pop star in every movie star, and everybody has their foundation out there, but in her case it actually seems to be seriously stepping up raising a lot of money, and and doing a lot of good but I think one of the reasons that the foundation has been so successful is that Riana is not a kind of Johnny. Come lately to these issues. She's been talking about this stuff for a long time. She has suddenly been the person who saving the world she actually has. Has Been Very socially conscious, and actually a speech that she made when she received in N. Double A. C. P. Award in February before corona virus, and now the George Flay death has sparked all these protests. She made an impassioned and really insightful speech that talked about a lot of the issues that were talking about today, and I think even have a clip about speech or Maggie will recite it for us. We can't let the D. sensitivity seep in I. Mean How many of us in this room have colleagues and partners France from other races, sexes, religions, Chauhan's hunger, marching and testing, and posting about the Michael Brown Juniors Tattoo Jefferson's of the world. Tell you I pull up. I mean the other thing about she's so busy. Of course she's not only you know a recording artists to now saving the world as you said Maggie, but she's also running her her fashion business, which has become hugely successful, and there were some patrons. Even though there is this blackout, there are some pictures of her latest campaign which is surface this week of her. You know posing in lingerie, so she's doing it all she saving the world in lingerie. Somebody else who's doing good is Jose. You know the singer. She was updating fans that she's been attending protests in the wake of George, Floyd's death at the hands of Minnesota police this week, and not only what she marching. She also has been providing medical attention to people who have been injured by rubber bullets. That's what she said. Maggie halls issues at the protests. In La we've reported before that. Halsey is studying to be a lawyer which seems to be a trend in show business because I didn't Kim Kardashian. In effect, everyone everyone exactly. If you're a celebrity, it's not enough to just have a foundation and a production company. You need to also have your own law firm, but. Halsey posted There were some pictures of her and another protestor kind of seeming to attend to. Her ex boyfriend youngblood, who that's. I'M NOT GONNA lie I was out to say oh. That's young boy. I couldn't tell what the mask on, but you know what I wouldn't I couldn't tell you who young. What? What? Is. Even recognize it without the mask. He's the British rapper right. I don't know I. Just Know Him as a Halsey affiliate. He's a Halsey affiliate. In any event. She and young blood seemed to be attending to in. Kind of an older dude in an L.. A. Alley End she, we previously reported. She had been under fire right when protesters clashed with police who were shooting rubber bullets in La, and she posted, she posted with all of our medical professionals, being consumed in exhausted with Covid, there was little to no medical attention available. She said this on instagram. She said I have first-hand treated men and women and children who have been shot in the chest, the face the back. Some will lose vision. Some have lost fingers. I've been covered innocent blood so. Maybe she should drop the the law school thing and just head straight to medical school. She did say that my father is a black man. My mother is an EMT. This week I had to put those two associations together in ways that have horrified me. Wow, that's elite impressive to say yeah. Shouting getting Perron. Mobile mashing it out there. I mean. It's it's. It's a commendable thing for her to do, and also covert is still going on, you know. It's that fear is alive and well. Yeah maybe I'll change my my primary care physician to Halsey. Have you heard of wild Alaskan company. It's a monthly seafood membership. Great idea. I just got my first wild Combo box and let me tell you how excited I was. Each high quality piece individually wrapped, which is great. I live by myself, so it's already portioned out I. Need Fish Tacos I put it in Salads I made all kinds of salmon pollock.

This was not an isolated incident and must end hashtag black lives matter. Yeah this was pretty crazy Maggie. Liam Michelle's former CO stars. You mentioned Samantha where you play. The character on the show deemed Jane Hayward. posted. Yet tweeted. Re tweeted okay. retweeted. Leah Machel's message. About. Black lives matter, and then wrote in capital letters in Common Lma. Oh, remember when you made my first television Gig a living hell. Because all never forget I believe you told everyone. That if you had the opportunity, you would shit in my wig. Exclamation point. Amongst other traumatic microaggressions that made me question a career in Hollywood. There is nothing micro about? Claiming someone has said they're gonNA. Shit near Wig. Yeah, that was one of my. Last night a friend of mine sent me this the tweet and early tweet in this comment by the. Former? This glee war at initially I got it and I I open it up and I. I was like. You know I wasn't really a big glee. Were they called what we're fans called. Leaks I believe right like geeking. Cliques. Did I just make that up? Is that real? I watched some of it, but not I like it. Wasn't glee. Also the I think leak was also the wonder twins. Monkey on super friends, but anyway I digress you probably. KEEP GOING If. ANYTHING ABOUT PO-. Empowers activate form so anyway. Act I wasn't really a big lead newer, so I initially got this tweet in A friend of mine said it to me. Was You have to look at this? It's insane and I was like a glee whatever and opened up and I was like Oh. My God and then one of the commenters said. Yeah I'm not sure that shitting in someone's wig is of micro aggression. Aggression aggression but I. Guess if you don't actually shit in their wig I guess the shitting in the whig would be the macro aggression, but maybe just threatening, it would be a micro aggression. The only thing I don't understand is is that like a thing? I at what point would your mind go there that you would say those things? Someone like this is what I'm gonNA. Do I mean of Al Whipping your wig? Yeah I. Don't Know Losing Your Shit. When combined very power? Ones Wig. It's an interesting celebrity trend. Magazine No, not that not yet now. That the whig shitting part is would be the trend forecasting that we're looking ahead to see if. More allegations the trae one thing if I was shooting a movie now. If that is a trend I'm definitely GONNA, look at my wig before I. Put it on. To me, but in any event. No that you know there's this whole Ellen degeneres thing right where there was someone who. Ellen Degeneres during the coronavirus thing was. Interviewing celebrities, and then somebody tweeted like hey. I had had this bad experience with Ellen, generous and invited all these other people. You know anyone who's ever. Been in some situation with Ellen because she's not nice to to talk about it, and all of a sudden, you had this cascade of tweets about run into incidents with. And it starts office sort of like a little Weirdo kind of social media, meam, and then it will snowball into these larger stories so an aaliyah Michelle. Though has had beef with other Glee Co Stars in the past raid. Yeah, you might remember her beef with Nyra. Rivera who right? I mean they were the together from two thousand nine to twenty fifteen, and there was this long standing feud about them, and then Nyah wrote about it in her two thousand sixteen book called. Sorry, not sorry, she said one of the glee riders once said that Leeann I were like two sides of the same battery, and that about sums us up. We are both strong, willed and competitive, not just with each other, but with everyone, and that's not a good mixture Leeann I definitely weren't the best of friends and I doubt we'll ever sit on her couch and eat Kale together again, but the rumors of our feud were blown out of proportion. Amber Riley. who was on the show hopped it on this tweet, and she posted a GIF herself sipping tea drinking from a cup getting that juicy scoop Oh. Yeah. There are a lot of good gifts in response to this, so we'll see what happens. Meantime paid six has reach out to Liam Michelle's shells reps and they have not yet commented, so they're either staying. Mom were taking the high road, but we're shopping. Or shitting wigs. Shopping for. I guess even though I never watched glee. It seems like whatever's going on behind the scenes. There's a lot more interesting than the show.

Yes, Him Gun! The former project runway star turned making the cut star with Heidi clue he said during a during a virtual talk at the Ninety Second Street Y I used to condemn the whole notion of comfort dressing, but that after weeks in pajamas and loose fitting clothes that he finds real close an absolute assault on your body. You think I feel so constricted I feel like I'm wearing a wet suit. Now he says I have a tremendous amount of empathy for people who want address comfortably and I remember that over the years Tim Gunn. During interviews would be asked you know fashion advice and I think he always was sort of recommending to wear proper clothes and of course I. Don't think we've ever seen him not in. A suit and tie in like a very fitted suit and tie in an expertly tailored suit in to actually tailored suit and tie so now he is. Wearing lifelike, loose loose-fitting, garment In the loose, fitting garment. Such vivid memory of a quote from him. That's like if you want to dress like you didn't get out of bed, don't. Oh Ooh I remember so well like when I first started working in an office and had like a real time job after college. I always thought of that like even if you feel terrible, and you're phoning it in try to put on, solid Alpha tried to make yourself look. approachable and professional yet back before the coronavirus pandemic Maggie. I had that theory, too. I took a page from the Tim Gunn School because I. Just. You know usually wear. I used to always just wear a suit and tie, or at least a jacket and tie all the time because I always figured. You know you could wake up in a dumpster, but if you're wearing a tie, people will think you know what you're doing it. I was waking up in dumpster. You're of my life. The thing about it is I. Love what you said. Though and I'm going to rotate. Remember that piece of Tim. Gunn advice you know about. If you if what was it? You look like you if you WANNA drive. Like. What is it I forgot if you want to dress like you? are in bed. Stay in bed. Well, that's it is now. is now it's confusing because in the pandemic. It's a bit of a cycle where sometimes let's face it I I just will wear what I'm wearing to bed and then wake up and what I was wearing, so I don't even know where the fit began, did it? WOR ended. I'm just wearing. A in and out I, really miss clothing like real close on the weekends and nights. If I go for a walk, I'm like Oh. Let me Try to look presentable, so this item in this story on hero paid six PODCAST. Is Really Mickey missed him gun and I think I'm going to now watch. That making the cut show because the thing is back in the day, remember when project runway was at the height of its powers. I! Do I definitely watched it religiously? When it was like if you were not watching project runway were like you weren't part of the conversation sort of water cooler. Talk you really missing something I. Met one of my best friends in the world because we shared. The same opinion on Wendy pepper who was a project runway contestant who I believe? Passed away a few years ago, but we were both talking about her designs, and that's how we met. Totally so back in that day, when like back when you were like Oh and then they went to mood fabrics or whatever? Tim Don was like. I was SORTA like a part of our of my you'll life like his voice was in my head. Sort of you know guiding me with these kinds of tips that he saying now, and then I have to admit like once the show when it moved, it changed networks and went to lifetime. And then I like then I stopped watching, and now they're back so I don't know. Maybe maybe we need more. Tim Gunn in our lives right now. That's right MAG.

"Good evening thank you for joining us. Ready he to defend America's interests at a moment's notice the underwater guardians and a US Navy submarine in the eastern Mediterranean now the ABC News Exclusive David Muir Mir with extraordinary access onboard the heavily armed vessel in the warning tonight about the Russians watching the same sees. We approached the. US Is Florida in the eastern Mediterranean as it prepares for a highly classified mission. So this is eighteen thousand tonnes. We're looking at you thousand tons of American hill a nuclear powered. US Navy Guided Missile Submarine One hundred sixty crew on board. They called the silent service for a reason as right all those missions nations are some of the most highly classified that we do. They deploy underwater for up to one hundred twenty days several months at a time we were given rare access as we board the Submarine User Rear. Admiral William Houston describes where you're standing just above the Tomahawk missiles. This can lift up at anytime. This could lift up at anytime on order if we wanted to launch the Tomahawk missiles. How many Tomahawks are we sort of standing on right here right now? Seven behave more than one hundred Tomahawks at the ready. You and he points out something else. We won't go any further about your literally standing ten to twenty feet from an operational nuclear reactor right now they are about take us down into the submarine where we will spend the next twenty four hours traveling with a maze of narrow hallways and hatches. Are you good to see every inch of the submarine is used. They give me a harness internet as we prepare to climb to the top of the sub up to the bridge. We wait for word up the ladder through several hatches. They tell you when it comes to your hands and your feet make sure three out of four are touching at all times. We climb several floors to meet the captain and members of his crew way to get top the US Florida. We make it to the bridge where we find. They are on patrol as the submarine leaves port preparing to descend into the sea back down inside the submarine captain. Seth Burton takes his past the missile tubes holding the Tomahawks so inside this to hear seven missiles seventy offices question is and we take note that in between the curtains drawn for this sailor sleep. The sailors are actually sleep in the Tomahawk Brussels right inside the submarine Marine Control Room. They are about to deliver the order to descend Zimmer ship dive I dive a camera shows the submarine disappearing under the water surface. Eventually descending four hundred five hundred more than six hundred feet beneath the surface of the sea they trained to move the submarine as carefully as quickly as possible. Soon we are all leaning with no effort sort. It is precision work in these waters of the eastern Mediterranean. Not long after we are leaning in the other direction. This is a twenty degree. Lean right as is the pullback they have to be ready to make these moves. There are others here to be put the submarine right in this eastern portion of the Mediterranean to counterbalance the Russia buildup in Syria. Do you have company here in the military We do have plenty of company. The Russians are very active and We're active with originals has to censor to the the. US aware the Russians are trying to send a message. The Russians have demonstrated their willingness to use missiles from submarines. They did for the Black Sea. Yes it to Syria and now the Russians are the Mediterranean. Absolutely are and. We're watching them very very closely you. There's really not a day where we're not watching them every single day. Are they watching us. I think they'd like to watch US infect the Russians recently showing their own underwater muscle into barren see and just days ago testing their new sea-based ballistic missile. That's not lost on anyone. But we've seen from the Russians in just the last week and a half absolutely and that's one of the reasons Barbara here at night tonight. We watch us. They use a periscope with infrared. Camera above the water will no contacts alone. Everybody's it was good. We crawl through another hatch and snake our way to the nuclear reactor coming through and soon we are standing in front of the hatch. They have sealed off. We're basically traveling on the submarine with nuclear reactor. Absolutely we can operate more than ninety to one hundred twenty days submerged and the reason is because Matt Reactor forgives us all the power we need we ask who is behind the hatch. The team care about eleven watch sanders highly trained nuclear operators Miss Submarine. There's only been refuelled. Once only and that nuclear power also produces oxygen on board while under the sea. We are taken to the room where they monitor it all all five or six hundred feet below the surface you gotta use the resource. You have which is water right you for bringing down to mineralized water into oxygen hikes. It so so remake properly twice montages auction. We then send not hydrogen overboard when it hits. The electricity here breaks it into hydrogen and oxygen back. There is something else about the. US Florida it is always ready for us. Special Forces for Navy seals their weapons already on board. We are about to climb live to see the small compartment attached to the top of the submarine were Navy Seals use special forces would deploy right into the water keep in mind. The submarine submarine is still hundreds of feet beneath AC- this the dry Dick Shelter on top of the submarine. In fact we're still about two hundred feet beneath the surface of the Mediterranean. Here in this room this is where the Navy Seals deploy in a navy seal delivery vehicle of some sort and in fact the only thing separating from the intense pressure of the water Dr Hash in fact if you listen you can actually hear what in onboard there is one more powerful weapon the torpedo as it has been. You always wanted to write and since one here right. They have eight of them on board the submarine one of them already remarked workshop loaded and it turns out that every one of these torpedoes is tested multiple times before it's put into place on a guided missile submarine. These torpedoes were shot five times successfully as an exercise torpedo. The engine compartment after body Knows Group Against Control Group of the weapons it before it can be certified to carry a worship so these weapons of actually have run. Petty Officer Is Mar.. Drake conducts a test room of the tube itself so the force I was is getting released in. There was the two thousand pounds air going into the firing valve into the turbine ejection. which is pretty much like a jet engine spinning it up? which just ejected out like a giant water cannons torpedoes that will basically eliminate any submarine or surface ship if needed if needed if needed? Captain Burton is the commanding branding officer of the US. Florida just look at the region. And you've got isis in northern Africa. You've got what's going on the on the Turkey Syria border right now. All the fact that you're here in the Mediterranean is that gives you a set of silent is for the US absolute it gives them is where no one knows that. They're you're being looked at captain. Burton is aware of the Russians to and the Russians have found a way to signal to you were here in the Mediterranean to definitely. They're they're yeah and do you let them know that you know they're here. That's why I'm here in on this submarine as you walk down those narrow hallways just enough room to you get by. These sellers often do not know the classified mission on the horizon. They do know they're here in the eastern Mediterranean and that the ready good evening everyone you all are about to go on submissions. That I can't tell you about here on the mess decks during a very dangerous part of the world right now tonight the. US Has Florida now on that classified mission. Nobody knows where it's had in the Mediterranean anyone time including out including now. I'm David you're for nightline in eastern Mediterranean Ariel. The Little Mermaid is now diving into a new adventure inside the fresh spin on the animated Disney classic basic a live action spectacle featuring beloved actors and rising stars. Here's ABC's teaching homes with the first glimpse the remake of the timeless tale. It's the Disney classic that redefined the airflow and fork for generations of fans the Little Mermaid the enduring story of an underwater princess dreaming of a life on land in the nineteen eighty-nine mega hit one to Oscar and helped usher in Disney's animated renaissance era. And now it's taking on a new form in the Little Mermaid live airing Tuesday night on ABC. Which is owned by Disney Mwana Zahlee Propel Co Stars as Ariel? This is really a wonderful universal story that everyone can enjoy reggae superstar. Shaggy plays Sebastian. The crab is being told. A little different is Tom. And it's been put A modern spin on fuller houses. John stamos is the villainous French chef. Louis I I saw. That asked me to play Prince Eric. I guess that role goes to the good wife's Graham Phillips. The Hans Christian Andersen Very Tale is written in the eighteen eighteen thirties or something. So it's cool that existed for so long and the one and only Queen Latifah stars as Ursula. The Sea witch is going to be a blast to play this character with this hair then this black purple sort of skin dress. I don't even know what to call holiday with my tentacles and all this. You know he's on where'd you. I think when it came to you about doing it live Little Mermaid and they want you to be or so well. It was interesting because I had done a photo shoot for Disney a few years back where any Liebowitz shot me as Ursula and so when this popped up it was like okay the TV production All right how did he. How do they want to do this once? They explained to me the way that they wanted to do it. I thought it was interesting. Visiting Zaidi level go up. You know you got one shot at this thing you gotTa make you cannot blow it you know so is but you prepare you prepared for you. Practice practice back I think of the fun at the audience or having I mean kind of get into the character and let it go poor unfortunate souls. Okay now I was. That look. Is this a series song When I listen to it you know you think you know every Disney movie to you watch it again or you think you know a song until you actually have to sing it and you're like Oh my God? What is the part of the show anxious about I'd say so? It's it's the biggest number for me for sure. While there was a little mermaid Disney musical on Broadway wake. ABC's production will feature those iconic songs in a fresh way. A new spin on the live TV musical to. How is this going to be different? We've kind of become come accustomed to seeing these live productions on TV. There's going to be like any of those. They're going to literally show the movie in front of a live audience. And then when it comes is to the musical performances is going to cut to the live performance of those songs. And then it'll go back into the movie and the audience will take part in it and be the participants in the actual performance of it. They'll be under the sea with us. It'll be great but we try to create here as an a three hundred sixty immersive experience that were calling the dive drive in theater and the audience. We're GONNA have over four hundred audience members and they're gonNA get props throughout the show. Nightline was granted exclusive backstage stage access before the big night. We're GONNA take a tour of the Little Mermaid come following the actress Amber Riley best known for her role on Glee plays a new character. The master of ceremonies the movie aerial doesn't show up to her introduction suction as the new princess and so Usually the daughters of tried in sing the song of trading but they decided decided to have an emcee. Come in and be the master of ceremonies and sing about the dodgers attracting. So that is the road that I'll be playing from the costumes. This aerials costs do due being very delegated one of fingerprints. This is amazing accessories accessories. Look different colors. I mean the hair department did their thing on this this amazing grade. They won't take a nap taking this classic film that everybody has this sense of you know deep nostalgia for and it's presenting it in the way that you have seen it before. But also with all of these elements that heightened it and make it exciting new Disney also plans to reinvent the classic tale with a live action remake casting African American actress. Halle Bailey in the new role. The nineteen year old shared her excitement on Instagram instagram back. In July posting this illustration of aerial from artists Dylan Bonner with the caption dream. Come true but the decision was met with backlash online aligned with many tweeting their disapproval using the Hashtag not my aerial celebs like Mariah Carey. India came to her defense and applauded. The divers move move as classic is reinterpreted again tomorrow. Night this production's cast has evolved to. It is all about diversity at this point point and just with his cast. It says it old it's in our DNA. Now it's been part of our the fabric of our you know our our world. It is such a wonderful show to sing along to it. I think it's also important to remember. Anyone can be a mermaid and that from all walks of life everyone should be to enjoy joy about as well for nightline TJ homes in New York and finally tonight we mark the fortieth anniversary. Iran hostage crisis the funding moment in our nation's history and for nightline nightline evening the. US Embassy in Tehran has been invaded occupied by Iranian students.

Do you think going to take out. It's anger over the flight of the show. On the American hostages nightline signature and Bussey interviews with newsmakers. Some family members of hostages drove the coverage. Why are we not being allowed to hear from the hostages? The House one reason is because you're a sophist sophisticated. After four hundred forty four days. In captivity the American hostages were released we now for decades laden reminders enjoy troubling past and uncertain future.

"They WANNA know pain. Pain. Fame. What to the podcast, wheeler and everything you need to know about the celebrities you don't I'm finger. I'm Lindsey Weber, and on today's episode of who they are our weekly call in show going to respond to a very specific piece of feedback recede, which means the show is going to sound a little different and to us. It's something that's a little uncomfortable because as. To millennial white people who don't acknowledge race enough and also I, think couple that, with the fact, an acute awareness that we have a predominantly white audience, which makes it easier for us to not acknowledge race. Not to mention our own white fragility, which is also the title of a book, the two of us in so many other people around the world read and learned about themselves from. We just need to have an open conversation about not only race in general, but our approach to race and racism. We've made in the past as we could do better ways, our audience can do better, but mostly ways we can do better and by talking about it and working out the ways that we could do better. We know we can make this show a better place, more inclusive place and a place that you can continue to enjoy and love and grow and learn from. Yeah I WANNA. Say also you know we're doing this because we need to fix this show and we WANNA. help you understand like. Systemic racism is in every corner of everything. This pop culture culture everything in ways that we're aware of and then like also in ways that will will never fully be aware of you know in every single person who cares about this needs to do the work we as white people. We have to realize that this affects every part of our life. Including this podcast which we didn't really realize before including this podcast, and that's what this episode. Episode is about in eight includes each of us kind of talking through that you know I'm I'm literally quoting way fragility here because I think she says it in a way that made it very clear for me. Racial bias is largely unconscious and the defensiveness that ensues upon suggestion of racial bias is classic white fragility because it projects are racial bias while simultaneously affirming our identities as open minded. That's the thing it's like you're like I'm minded. Rachel bias I'm I'm down for whatever it's like that itself that defensiveness. We were infected with that. You know like that's how we felt. And I think it's just like easy for us to forget that, even though this platform is for garbage, it's still a platform that can be used for good and. Right now when it seems like every good person in the country is doing their part either protest or donate or spread the word spread awareness that police brutality is killing black people, and that systemic racism exists to the extent that like you can't. You can't not look at it anymore. You can't ignore it anymore. Especially as white people. We no longer get to say that we're not going to talk about these things because it makes the show less fun. We get calls a lot. And emails and tweets texts. From people who say I'm so glad. That I have who weekly till listen to because the news is so rough, everything's so sad. These have been happening for years. And we let those calls do a lot of talking for us. Because it's easier right. You get a call that says it when you don't talk about difficult things because it makes me happier, and that sort of subconsciously makes us think Oh, great! We don't have to talk about this. This is what our listeners want. And it makes us comfortable, and everybody's comfortable in. It's fine and we can going white people should not be comfortable right now. Every conversation about this stuff should be difficult because it's difficult to talk about these things. If they were easy that we wouldn't have this issue, every type of PODCAST, every type of entertainment show should be grappling with this because ultimately black culture is throughout all. All of entertainment and culture greater culture so when we don't talk about people or things because they're not familiar to us, that's a failure. We talk about things that we don't know about all the time I mean fucking up on. This podcast is truly my forte like I can't pronounce anything crushing anywhere like I well. Whatever idioms Lindsey Yeah I'm sorry like I think this is why people like who weekly aside from they like celebrity gossip, but this is a show that is just us like it's our personalities. It's actually quite personal that we do this every week, so if our if we can't grapple with like our own personal biases. What we you know, listen to what we read, and that goes into the podcast. No amount of phone calls from anyone saying. Hey, check this out or hey, here's my thought or dead. It can push. That can fix that right. Right has to be from us. We can't just lean on your phone calls even though we. Love them love listening to them. All of that stuff, it's not your job to do that for. When we think about the phone calls as. Guidance for the show. We think Oh. People are calling about this, which means they want us to talk about this? We use that as guidance, but people are only going to comment on things that we choose to talk about. We sometimes put the onus on the callers. undeservedly, even though you deserve plenty of credit, because you do structure the entirety of the Friday, show the. Monday show is us. The Monday show is completely up to us so while. Yes, the calls can be an explanation for half of the PODCAST. The other half is entirely up to what we put into the Google Doc. We have a largely white audience. We're aware of that. Aware of that because you know what what we choose to talk about is what you choose to talk to us about because you say Oh, they love. Whatever chromatic Lady Gaga I'm going to push that same direct. Do you mean like the more and more? We kind of think about it. It's like it's an ecosystem that just feeds itself right. It's a feedback loop. It's. Enough feedback, loop right, and so we have to do more work to break out of that feedback loop, and if that means talking about black, who's that? We don't really know about doing more research or saying I don't know about this, but I'm a tackle it anyways. Just like we do with like some random Australian who shattered Austrailia Austrailian I. Think this is the important distinction, though still have the fucking best jobs in the world to say which we are going to do, we are going to quote. Amina, on who dat. We're going to colonize our media diet, right? We're going to start consuming more things. Why don't we watched growing up hip hop? WHY DON'T WE WATCH REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA? Why don't we watch these shows that have predominantly black cast members? There are plenty of ways we could explain those, but those explanations don't matter. I think we typically fall on like well. We don't watch it because Xyz when the whole point of this show is for us to learn about new people, that's literally what the show is everything you need to know about the celebrities you don't. How are we going to educate you about celebrities? You don't know unless we put in the work ourselves and here. Here's the thing whenever we say. We want to decolonize our media diet. It's GonNa be fun for us. It's GonNa. Be Fun for us to watch more things to diversify what we listen to that fun. And that's that's part one. That's part one of making the show. Better more things listen more things. Talk to more people that will in turn diversified the calls that we get. That'll make the show better for you and more educational I. Love Them. We call the show educational. It'll make the show. Baseline education, but I just WANNA. Say along the lines of what you're saying. That doesn't mean we won't fuck up I. Think the thing is is like I would much rather from what I've learned from listening. Bring up someone talk about someone new. Bring up a black who talk about you know a person of color who that I've never heard of before and do research and miss something because we miss shit all the time as you know, we miss it all the time. Miss something then not talk about that person at all. Because for me, the main issue is being afraid to. To not be the expert you know were both journalists or Rehab journalist's background I would call journalists. I guess we can't shirt. We're both journals. We're both riders. What we're trained to do is to seek an to be the expert or to get an expert. Okay, and I think for this podcast. It's a totally different situation that needs to be thrown out the window you. You know because that means if you don't feel comfortable being an expert, you feel like you're not equipped to have the conversation, which is not right. Yeah, so that's part one of the ways that we can make the show better. We diversify our media diet. That's easy part, but part two is the hard part part. Two is whenever we are talking about something where things get. Get remotely uncomfortable and I'm not talking about how sometimes we don't talk about stories, because they literally involve murder or just acts of brutality that are just like or mental illness. Where it's like that is not something we should be commenting on. Yeah, yes, which brings us to the subject Alison Roman which is something where we really fucked up by not talking about it more. and. I don't want to act like this is coming out of nowhere. This is in response to our own sort of observation of the cultural landscape and realizing that as white people. We have to do better, but it's also a response to a very specific email that we got from a black hooligan, not black again. A long-term black hooligan someone who's been listening since day one a true longtime longtime. Spent a lot of time writing an email to us, saying hey I was disappointed by your coverage Belsen Roman. I'm disappointed by the way you treat. Who Dat as a place to silo your black. Who Conversations? Why don't you do that more often? And she called us out for not spending the appropriate time and energy on the Allison Roman conversation which I think we can try to rectify now. What we did is what I think. White people do all the time and specifically us because our our show is about talking, right? We have a podcast and we don't WanNA. Talk about things that make us uncomfortable to put the email, or we fully dropped the ball on our coverage. We could have talked about it more. We could have talked about what it means to be. Someone like Allison, Roman. Who? is like us in so many ways. She works the media. She lives in New York. She's white. She's millennial cheap benefits from black culture. She benefits from from. In her recipes in her work, she takes from other cultures and puts them into her work. You know and and has benefited from those for shore. and I think that we can not only criticize Alison Roman recap about why what she did was wrong. which we will do a second, we can also learn from Alison Roman so like by talking about what she did wrong or only teaching ourselves, but hopefully reteaching the other white people who are listening to this and. Not Thinking about it who are trying to disregard it just like we do. Who heard US and said Oh. That's seems reasonable because I think. The thing is is that we went into that conversation focusing on what we thought was what we talk about when the major issue with it with something completely different. And when we got response, we got that response. We got that call. We listened to that call. We played that call and we didn't use our voices to continue the conversation of that call because ultimately what I think what I'm learning to is. Our voices and US talking even if again we're uncomfortable with it are louder and more impactful than sometimes the callers I think we hold the callers such high esteem, but ultimately this is our podcast. We are the host like that is our thing, so you guys come here to hear us. We've sometimes very self consciously think well who wants to hear us so having that Alison Roman conversation end so abruptly was unacceptable, and we should've kept talking, and we should have engaged with the caller who very graciously called into say, here are some other things we should talk about the. That was a Monday episode that we talked about it right. We could've fucked up on the Monday episode and made it right on the Friday, episode. I think something so great about this podcast. We give ourselves the. We not only give ourselves the opportunity to correct things. y'All give us the opportunity to correct things, and what we did reminds me of a thing that is extremely prevalent in media, and you will have seen plenty of black writers talking about it right now on your timelines. So often editors assigned stories about blackness and race and inequality to black writers and black writers or like. Why does it have to be me? We'll see plenty of tweets and instagram's talking about that what we did. is a shade of that. What we did is essentially that. Yeah, where we said, go read this article. It's better than what we could say. Oh, this this writer. This south Asian writer wrote about it, so just read his words, you know Oh, this caller called in. Just listen to what they have to say. This is not on us, and that sucks, and we shouldn't have done it and we won't do it in the future. Yeah, the other thing I wanna talk about again like just media Diet Chit that I think about or thinking about a lot. Is like you know. I love reading bosses. I love reading the Jasmine brand. I love reading all these sources, but ultimately my media diet our process reader, the tabloids we look at and we do tabloid talk. I mean these are white publications run by white people right, and so by virtue of that that affects us like us, not seeking out broader culture. That's a problem and I am I think it's one of those things where it's harder work to do that, but we have to do it. Because these are the people that own every single fucking magazine, which is something. We always fucking talk about but I think we talk about it in a different way, we. We don't talk about it in terms of race at all, but it's like we look at US weekly. This is our namesake, right? You look at the cover of US weekly last week and we talked about it. We talked about it. who was on the cover of us? Weekly This Week Laurie Laughlin, her husband Massimo Meghan Fox, machine gun Kelly Matt, Lauer and Savannah Guthrie Dwayne Wade is there, but it's an ad that doesn't advertisement for a mask for a face mask that is a one hundred percent white cover, and there are huge implications of that, because that means that the average person who's going to the grocery store and picking up celebrity gossip is only reading because. Lot of people are buying it. They're looking at the cover to begin with there. Just seeing the white gossip, they're just saying the white people and for us not to comment on. That is not only doing y'all a disservice, but it's doing US weekly to service. We know that they listen to us. We know people at US weekly listened to who weekly so it is. Is Our duty to call out whenever US weekly fucks up just like it's our duty to call out when we fuck up right because we're. We're calling out other things all the time. I mean literally I hope we mock with love, but the whole thing is like how weird the tabloid industry is like how the way they write headlines how we talk about celebrities. This stuff like we should be calling out that as well and I think we thought we weren't in the position to do so, but it doesn't matter like we should be doing it anyways, because we should, we should know better job. We should matter and we thought Oh. This isn't really our place. That's not what the podcast is about. If that's not what the podcast is about, then we have to make it about that. You know especially now that like. It is unconscionable for white people who have microphones to not use those microphones to write speak truth to power when it comes to systemic racism. It sucks it to be now that it feels like we are now just recognizing this about our full entire show, not even like. Of recent we need to be more sensitive data. It's like no like the full show needs to move forward and be different and I think I'm grateful for the learning opportunity I'm grateful for that e mail because I feel like it's something that we've always skirted the line of and been uncomfortable and being uncomfortable sucks like comfortable about make putting yourself into uncomfortable situations sucks like. Like you gotta go for it and we haven't even talked about this, but it's like when we send an email back. We thought wow, what an email like truly. We sent an email back and we were like. We're good white people. We sent an email back. That was thoughtful. That was acknowledging what this person said. And we explained our situation, and now she understands it. That was the entirely wrong way to go about this. She didn't need to know where we came from. She didn't need us to explain why we did X.. Y. And Z. she lead us to acknowledge her points and learn from them. Yeah, and if we would have read this email as an as an apology that we frequently talk about people's apology emails, apology notes, or whatever we would have a you know it's funny like. We would have Oh. This is the fuck up. Why is this person going on and on and on I? Think the issue is we were defensive, because this is our lives and we got defensive, and that is the number one thing that we shouldn't have done. And she didn't deserve our defensive response. You know the first time around like it just wasn't the right. Right way to respond little bottom line. She gave us feedback did not have to give us feedback and she was right like we do need to do better moving forward even if it is just the smallest amount of audience who notices this who sees this because it's? We're not trying to make a show that is not inclusive. That is not what we're about no. Like I don't want to pretend like we are on the level of white fragility. You have to read. You can't just buy and take a photo of it. White people I don't want to say that we're on that level, but we should be using this podcast to talk about the lessons. We've learned from books like that one what we should be applying the lessons we read in books like that to the conversations we'd have. That are about full shit, but the point is like that should be in the back of our mind, and that should be part of our everyday thinking and reasoning and conversation, even if it is about the stupidest thing ever do. Stuff like stupid lease. We can all agree that WHO's and them's and the stuff we talk about is. Just so stupid, but the idea is if we're going to say hey, we're elevating this conversation. We're being smart about it. We're smart data then we have to be better. We have to do better because then. There's no point this show. You might as well just read US Weekly. I mean if you want to. You might as well just read US weekly and they. They need to change their practices just like we need to change hours which I hope our changing starting today, and I the rest of time but we've talked about Allison Roman. Christie Getting Rekondo, but not enough and I think we should just sort of revisit that entirely. What did Allison do wrong this segment now? This is a segment now about allison. Chrissy Teigen. What did she do wrong? She called out women of Color and she called out an Asian American woman and a Japanese woman when she could have called out literally anyone and where did that come from? Even if she were to say that, she just picked to woman, and she didn't really put much thought into it. That's not the point the point. She failed to recognize that she did after she said it. And also. There's the whole thing where people's take allison Romans recipes at face value when there's it's so much more complicated the types of food that she makes if she make something with with turmeric and everyone says the seems like curry, and she says it's not curry. That's something that needs to be discuss because. She is not seeing that what she is doing is like taking food that is made by people of color and turning into white food. You know taking a picture of it on to a picture of it on a ceramic plate. Blowing out the the the what you call it, the the saturate the or whatever your no, but it's also like a thing that she does. It's just like. I think that she excuses it for herself. Trying to use my own my own existence as a white person to understand why Alison does what she does, but it sort of like you've read her books like I read her books. Her books have like a very specific point of view. That's why they're successful. They're not just recipes that you can make pretty easily. They're like really intense food. Food writing, that's like funny and extremely Boise and kind of angry and assertive, and so she'll do things like that that I couldn't stop laughing at that I was sending you in that book came out when what the fuck the new one nothing fancy came out when she's like I will not cost loss law. It's not slow. It is salad. It's not sly hate the words law. She doesn't understand that whenever she applies that sort of thing to a curry by calling it like a tumor. Instead she erases the origin of the. She's making by using ingredients that usually come from food that has not made by white people like you got is the thing you're right? So instead of so her in her mind, she saying no, that's just who I am. I create definitions of things for myself. I interpret things the way I interpret them, and I have a new vocabulary, and it's something I created, and she did, but by creating that vocabulary. Without erasing the origin right I think the idea to write is like. Take away the history as divorcing the history of the food or not, even looking at as a whole new thing that you created without looking at where it came from. That's the problem you're. You are allowed to cook. However, you want to cook like I. Think No one is saying that you're not I just think if you're going to be publishing that food and creating new recipes and mixing it up and defining yourself like divorcing the history of that food races, the people who contributed to it in the first place, not a racist their contributions. So. That's the sort of conversation we should have had however many months ago two months ago. I don't even understand when this was. A month ago, the beginning of May Eleven. Out that apology was may eleven. That was less than one month ago, so that should have been the conversation we had when that person called in actually started the conversation for us. We should have finished it and you know what maybe we weren't equipped at the time to do it. I don't know like we probably weren't i. think we were equipped. We just weren't thinking doing what we've done for so long which is. On! We didn't want to be uncomfortable. This is the point of today's episode is like we're not going to not do because we're uncomfortable anymore. And every white person says stop doing that like I, and it's down to this. It's down to sharing on your instagram. Even though you're afraid, it's GONNA look like virtue. Signaling shared anyway. I didn't go to a protest this week and I was convincing myself. No, it's because of Corona virus. It's because of Corona Virus I. Don't WanNa Because I. DON'T WANNA. Get Sick, but I had to go anyway. I just went. I'm going to keep going to them. Ages going to them changes the way changes your perspective complete from watching the news or looking at twitter Oh my God like absolutely being there yesterday, like I didn't give a shit about corona virus was. You know like, but the idea that like. Again with the media bubble, it's like even people on twitter and the actual local news, which is terrible, the New York Times everyone. You can't really get a clear view until you show up. And if there are protests in your area, and you're not showing up like you're not knowing what's going on, you know if you can show up you kind of have you're not going to fully up at is with anything like if we don't watch love and hip hop Hollywood if we want to talk about somebody on love and hip. Hip Hop Hollywood. We're not going to get the full picture, and it's again like I to. I want to reiterate this VAT. Imagine that being your fucking job. That is our job. All we have to do is watch love and hip hop. All we have to do is just more black DASA, non white gossip nonwhite content. That's easy. Ingesting content is easy and we should do. We should do it more. We just can't trust our sources. We can't trust the Daily Mail to give us a Backtra of information. We just can't like. We cannot just say Oh look at the. Daily Mail and pick up the funniest thing like I can't do that anymore like they are funny. And I hope we continue to laugh at, but that cannot be the full media diet. That cannot be the full show you know. And, I think that brings us to who dat which is a longtime and much loved segment on the show that again we own thoughtlessness, get in the way of what who actually represents an could be well it what it should be is everything that Shawnee and Amina WanNa talk about which could be anything and I think what we were doing was. We were pushing black culture to them as their responsibility, which it isn't and kind of saying you know we don't have to cover this because they will, and that's unacceptable. They could talk about whatever they want. I mean I I think that's the thing. It's like Shana Amina created. They created who at and they they wanted to come on the show, and we're lucky that they even want to come on the show at all and. It's about their personalities, and and that's what I think. People like not that they talk about specific things. It's that they're funny and fun, and like it's more than they teach us, you know. I'm there for that and I'm grateful for it, but we shouldn't expect that from them. It should be a bonus. We let that exist in a bubble, and really what who dat should have been, and should be moving forward is the beginning of a conversation that continues throughout the rest of our show. More often than not, it was easier to say you know what let's say this for Shiny. And Amina and again we will let, we would let the the white callers who express similar opinions. Exist for by confirmation bias to us where it's like. Oh, we have a caller calling and saying that they would prefer this to to enemy now we don't have to do that. We don't have to do we. Don't you just agree to that? Because it was easier for us to well, the other thing too is like you know. The thing with WHO'd at that I love right, and I hope that it shines through. Is that Bobbi comes from Texas I? Come from Massachusetts. We have we both have different backgrounds, but we also have a background that kind of overlaps white, suburban white kids subur- suburban white kids, so who watched a ton of each one in there'd right teenagers the references that we have that. Go back to like our childhood. Those will always be there. We have to kind of like fight against them. You know we'll also the references that we have in our childhood. Don't have to go away, but they should be supplemented by new references and. That's the problem. Our new references always end up being pretty white as well I mean. Look at Gramatica. What's Whiter Than Lady Gaga on? Planet liked like and Lady Gaga to her credit is doing plenty of work for the black lives matter movement. She really is doing a lot, but that doesn't change the fact that that is another humongous piece of the white monoculture, and it doesn't change the fact that like we chose to focus on our patriots in this white woman, exclusively for a couple of episodes, and so it's like you just need to diversify who talk about on our Patriot because again. This sort of thing I'm trying to think of an industry where this could be more difficult I'm certain I'm just trying to so hard for me to think of like work. That isn't this job, but it's like I'm certain that it that it is more of a struggle for white people in other industries to. Think differently and to act differently. That cannot be said for the two of us. It's easy for us to make these changes to the show because we are just two people who run the show. It's entirely up to us. We can do all the changes, so that's just something that has to be done, and we talk about it more on the Patriot because I guess like different. listenership or you know, maybe you know. Obviously they overlap, too, but we can talk about. We're on the Patriot but like you know. The patron is a place where we kind of like create activities for hooligans. We say watch this. Listen to that talk about this. We'll do this data that severely needs to be looked at because it's like we should not be recommending the same it and over like. Here's a crazy thing that we haven't even talked about. The two of us, but it's like we're out here. Being like hey, everyone, watch run meanwhile insecure is right there. You know what I mean like. That's a little thing that's like not a huge thing, but insecure is right there as we watch. Honestly insecure has been good so good this season I I wish we watched instead of run. We run was the was. Garbage. Let's not. This is not a run podcast. But I get what you're saying. That's what I'm saying like is like. It's so hard to see bat. That you know. We have to see it, and that just goes to show you that like it's. It's everywhere. It's everywhere the moment the moment we white people start acknowledging the fact that we are complicit in the prevalence and continuation of systemic racism in America and the world. The moment you acknowledged that honestly to yourself, you will never not see it everywhere. You will never not feel mortified for everything you've done to perpetuate it and the only thing you can do is to acknowledge it. It to people do your best to educate other white people and to fix yourself, and so this is step one in fixing ourselves and this podcast. Yeah, and if we have to do it on this platform publicly for other people to maybe have this spark. Maybe they didn't realize that they've been listening. They didn't take they. They didn't even see this like we didn't see it either. Then I hope that's good, and yes, this is not a very funny episode, but ultimately. I think this makes our show better I think that it makes our show funnier and I'm excited to expand the hughniverse because. We're we're? We are also always running at a shit to talk about the fact that we aren't even mining from these communities because we're. Is Low an excuse to not. Talk about like like true crime podcast. Scary Murderer podcasts. stressed out because it's like we're going to run out of spooky murderers. You know we don't have that excuse. We can never run out of things to talk about. Because the WHO liberties are everywhere like a like the real universe, the hughniverse is ever expanding. That's just physics. Right like that's physics the WHO? Just keeps expanding and outside you. You briefly talked about it and we meant again. We opened the show with it last week I. Hope that felt well intentioned. If not like the right move now, I think this is what we should have done in the beginning. You know black people. Being targeted by the police is so unbelievably fucked up that I cannot believe it's not obvious white people like. Of course it's obvious to black people. It's obvious to them their entire lives and we've given ourselves a pass to ignore it for so long and I. Just you know I. I WanNa, say these names were big names in this show you know like we're always like who's in them, but like George Floyd Brianna Taylor fee Llandough, Casteel Tony Dade. Sandra Bland these names like it's only the tip of the iceberg, and I'm saying all these names like this is only the beginning of the long list of people I. It's just like to me one of those things where you have to keep on talking about it. You have to keep on saying it even if it makes, you feel uncomfortable off even if it's in a podcast about liberties. We gotta do it. But I guess do. We want to talk about the protests I think that this should be an episode I think that we should just like if we're going to make the show different. I think we should make the show different starting. No I saw a really good tweet that. First of all. I I saw really slick. My whole life are really good tweet. That made me really think this is from. at. Task CONNEC easy on twitter. And it said this is kind of relating to celebrities and liberties protesting and this is somebody. We've talked about relativity for John Boyega to say he doesn't know if he'll have a career after this. While non black celebs are being praised for simply acknowledging the B. L. Movement is very telling rates. You have John Boyega who is already kind of been controversial in terms of saying things and the kind of Star Star. Wars contingent has been like. You know we'll star wars. Fans are really really loud. And he has pissed them off in the past renders a completely different level. This is right so him out here at a protests speaking up and saying you know I don't fuck if I don't have a after this fuck that I think that's kind of along. The thing is like He. That's not an exaggeration from a lot of people that like if Daisy Ridley was like if I. Don't have a cure after this like that. Daisy couldn't say for John Boyega. That's true. That is a real threat to him. Because as a black person, he's less seen in Hollywood. He's seen in the movie industry. Bound! To be reminded every day. Arrest me nothing. Anymore. Case anymore. Today! We are physical representation of. Another federal glad. We are physical representation. Of Stephen Lawrence. Homework doesn't. And I. See I see this when I see. Celebrities being covered in protesting, which I think is great like everyone should be out there right like we don't. We're not just encouraging. You guys were encouraging. Everyone were encouraging all celebrities, but to recognize the difference between like John Boyega speaking out like that and covered in a very specific way as kind of an antagonistic as opposed to Ben Affleck, who you know again the for him the money, but also like the funniest picture alive of Ben Affleck protesting in Venice which got a lot of attention, which is like ultimately good, but no one is saying. Oh, Ben Affleck careers. Because he's holding a black lives matter sign. When like that really is something that John, by out here, saying his like he's worried about that, but like Ben Affleck. It's the least that he can do. And then you have Lana del Rey, who gets in trouble yet? Again number one after we ago making to frankly ridiculous and unsee comparison to women of Color popstars stars. You can't compare yourself to them at the Rafer. Many many reasons, but specifically like calling out these women of Color as people who've gotten away with things that you haven't gotten away with is like wildly tone-deaf. Here and posts alluding video with faces, and that's like one of the rules that you're not supposed to break do not post, do not post-looting videos do not post people. Protesters faces in your instagram's, and who got mad at her Kahlani and Tennessee to pop stars, and who's who are women of color like you have this black woman saying lingerie do better. She continues to behave ridiculously, and thoughtlessly ignorantly, and I don't know it's good that she is being called out. Out. I hope that Lana has somebody in her life like the hooligan who emailed us to say like? Get a grip. The thing with Lonzo ran. I want to be very specific about this. When somebody suggested that we cover Lana del Rey. It is in our wheelhouse because it's an a, it's a weird. It's a notes APP. It's a typewritten notes up I don't know what apps using name. She's using like the Tom. Hanks Hang. It's like a weird out. Like, it is in our wheelhouse, but Lana del Rey I. Think is of them so I could palm that often say no. We don't have to talk about it. She's in them, but we've talk about whatever the fuck we want. You could have talked about that was another excuse where we were like oh? We don't want to talk about this now. That was wrong and that was wrong and we should have fucking talked about it because it's interesting, because it's interesting, and it's our wheelhouse, it's about apologies, but also it came immediately after the ellison room thing, and instead of saying we did the Allison Roman thing wrong. We approached the alson Roman thing thoughtlessly. Let's just not do this again. As opposed to. Let's get better at it. That was another decision that we made. We said you know what let's just not do this again because we don't WanNa, fuck up like we fucked up in the past. We should have said we will talk about this and we're going to make amends to our Roman conversation. We're going to do this better than we did in the past because we are smart people who can use their platform to actually discuss things, but we didn't do it while in fact, what's really interesting about Lana del Rey is that her thing overlaps with Allison Roman because list again. What people said Alana's? Make your statement, but why list other women why list these women a lot of which were women of Color? You know even if Lana was just. Like. Yeah, like you got beyond. Say on there. Why list names of women point is saying a lot of things on the radio about these topics? Why do these songs are beloved by big at a pass on my in my songs, I'm called a I'm glamorizing sex and I'm glamorizing drugs. I'm glamour like. That to do that to me is a lot like what kind of Alison Roman which was like I want to make a point about selling out. This is my point that I'm making but I'm going to name two women for seemingly no reason not make her point any better, if and then exposes essentially her bias, and like Lana is in the same boat I. Just don't understand like if if you want to be taken seriously now I'm seeing this. I'm actually seeing her note different than when I saw it when it first came up, which was honestly embarrassed I'm like you know fan wires. You're doing. Yeah, stand culture is like. Toxic in this way, you know like I want a really good piece in vulture by Craig Jenkins. Did you re this stand? Culture is due. Oh, yeah, you sent me that. Yes, so are the celebrities, they worship and it just about it's about DOJ. Cat, who we can also talk about which is a whole different conversation. I recommend listening to pop cast. They talked about lawn and DOJ this week. Really good, but also like. Talking about the ideas like the way that you stand behind yours. Your objective Stan like how that affects the way that they then speak like he says I'm he writes? Outside the castle walls the wolves are hungry that neither artists knows how people really see them that neither could tell how the public would process the actions they're being criticized for speaks to the fact that for celebrities. Media is one part Echo Chamber where fans flatter them year round and one part firing squad when they screw up. And the DOJ cut thing. I can also just say what happened there. If you have any thoughts about that I, mean from what I gathered. You know videos came out of DOJ cat in these tiny chats where there was a lot of conversation about race and Oj cow was involved in those conversations, and then also there was a song that came out that DOJ claimed was kind of a comment on on racism and race, and the song itself was very inappropriate. You know especially taken out of context from that explanation, which of course it was because everything is taken out of context, and also we can t read her speaking of apologies. We can read hers. Hers She said I want to address. What's been happening on twitter? I've used public chat rooms social since I was a child. That's like so real because that's such a generational thing. I shouldn't have been on some of those chat room sites, but I personally have never been involved in any races conversations. I'm sorry to everyone I offended. I'm a black woman. Half of my family is black from South Africa I'm very proud of where I come from as for the old song. That's resurface. This is the one where people were claiming that it was like she was making fun of victims of police brutality She thought it was specifically about like Santa, bland. And she's like no. That's not what this was about all. She says it was written in response to people who often use that term to hurt me. I made an attempt to flip its meaning, but recognize that it was a bad decision to use that term in my music. She had explained herself much better, but also data's constantly doing this, so does your cat has more experience? Apologize any. You have canceled every five months the thing with does your cat being cancelled every five months at however, you feel about cancellation culture, you know like Hashtag blankets over you know like that type of thing, online the thing about Dojo, which also makes her so interesting right is that she's been. She's the most online person like going back to the beginning of her career. She would go on live and like just talk to people like. Has Been Online there is so much. This is like if he started a blog when you were ten in, it was from your, you know it went up to your whole life. You those things are just they change. You write like her experience has always been like talking to fans doing stuff like being online before she even had fans I, mean she does her apology video on instagram live in. In. A shirt that says anti with flames I mean she is of by the Internet of the Internet like. If you don't think that we're GonNa see that you know what I mean, and that's what makes her so charming. That's what makes her so compelling. It's not just her music. I mean it like mood at first song that you came out with those purely of the Internet like she's. Her so fascinating, and she was canceled for tweets soon after you know, but then came back again like I just think it's just one of those things where it's like online, and it's the opposite of Lana who I think is in this bubble, and the reason why we're comparing them is because this happened around the same time in the search in the Craig Jenkins Essay kind of is comparing them, so it's in my mind, but these are two different very very different situations you know. Know Doshi also ended her video podgy something. A lot of would never say which was I'm not perfect, but at the end of the day I shouldn't be doing dumb stuff like Lana. Would never that we've seen that in the past and we know moving forward that Lana is not going to learn from this if she does like I'm happy to eat my words, but like I just don't see her doing. This Lana ended her with by my poetry book. In case you're one. Data Cop so like. Let's not mince words. She's dating cop. And all these other celebrities are out here, protesting the cops and asking to fund the cops and Ray and lot. That's how you. Have you met my ex? the next thing I wanted to talk about I. Mean I guess we could play a call and have a call I have. You guys are getting. So many phone calls others. I bet but Leah. Michelle. What is happening crunch? Good question and I think there's a way of talking about this. That sort of just goes into everything. We've been talking about today I think it's very appropriate to talk about the Michelle at this time. Just like it's usually appropriate to talk about Leeann Michelle because she's always either fucking upper. Doing something really funny, so here's what happened Lee Michelle. This was on Monday Lea Michele tweeted. George Floyd did not deserve this. This was not an isolated incident, and it must end Hashtag black lives matter. She put this on twitter. Trying to involve herself into the conversation against police, brutality and black lives matter, but here's the issue, and this is the this is the trap that I and I, and again this episode is getting way too personal even for us, but it's like when I look at Liam Michele, doing this. This is like this is the example I never want to be made where I am speaking out against one thing, let's. Let's say in this instance police brutality, and your life does only to be told that my life does not reflect that only to be told that I am being a hypocrite. My public and personal lives do not align. We don't want to come on this podcast and say here's what we're doing about ourselves, and here's what you other white people should be doing to better yourselves unless we can also back. Back it up and what Leah Michele did. Here is proved that she does not walk the walk. She only talks the talk and the reason we know that is because after she tweeted that her old cast member Samantha wear quote tweeted. Leah, sweep, and said L.. Mayo all caps by the way I think that adds to the passionate. This Ella Mayo remember when you made my first television. GIG Hell question exclamation. Exclamation question exclamation because I'll never forget I. believe of Brazil all caps I believe told everyone that. If you had the opportunity, you would quote shit in my wig. Amongst other traumatic microaggressions that made me question a career in Hollywood of the funniest tweet. I saw about this. Any of this is that it was like I. Don't think those are microaggressions. I think that's just straight up aggressive to threaten to. Fairy fucked up and racist. Thing to say is you'RE GONNA? Shit in woman's wig like I'm sorry, does it get it? If she's quoting here in which I think she is. It doesn't get worse than that. Can I just say thought was so funny? People 'cause Samantha wear people know from Glee. She was on the last season of glee and people were posting videos and there like wouldn't you would? You would be threatened by this person if they were in your cast to, and it's like this incredible video of her singing Gentlema- song I think it's tight rope. Some people. Like, they know all about you when you get down there. and. Sing. When you get elevated. They love it. They hated you. Could get him punky on the scene while they jump around you then trying to take all your dreams but again. Baby. BOOMERS! Turns out this actress she's been. She was in glebe. What if member that Renee Zellweger show that was that was like very. And everyone was like. That show sucks all my God. What is she doing and? I watched the whole. I watched the whole thing I had to, but she's. She's really good, and she also is still a musician. She's still a musician. She had a music videos. Come out like under the name Sameeh after she sort of opened the floodgates. Pouring out not as many one thing you'll notice in the coverage of this. The coverage of this will use a lot of the cast members, photos and be like. Here's what Kevin McHale and Alex Newell and. and Amber Riley have to say about Lia Michelle and the thing is not many of them, said things explicit the either didn't say something, said something explicit, or said something vague. We'll improvise will make you think that all comment amber. Riley. Who is an actress from Glee? Who Played? A, Mercedes. She like re tweeted with like a gift like she had like a gift moment. The funding I get herself, which is the ultimate famous person flexes like when you're using a Gif of yourself, but the point is like is when they came to her. Because of course, she opened the floodgates opened. Then people coming. You're trying to interview her about that. And she said about black lives matter. That is not important like we need to focus on something else, so like loves you. Said defend the police. Killer, cops black lives matter so like shadow to her, because that is annoying that somebody then came to her with a follow up interview about bullshit and she said I'm using this platform to say black lives matter like here's like, oh you want WanNa. Interview like that's your interview. It's just it's. It is a very complicated thing to happen quote right now, but it only happened because of right now because you have lea Michelle. That stuff you know and because her apology. Wasn't good enough, you know. Then you have, and then you have can I just say I think for a lot of these people who've been mistreated by her? No apology would be good enough because the idea is like the damage was done, and it was very bad damage. Do you know what I mean like has a history of mistreating people that she works, but the way that she mistreated. The black woman was a specifically. Wait racist mistreatment. Yes, so it's sort of like. Cheese finally having to contend with her with her history with their past behavior, which is. All of this is which is I think I wanted to play that call Lima Shell in addition to being a frequent topic of conversation on this show, because she's so fucking ridiculous, and because she does Sabra Hamas on which because she does Sabra Hamas, spawn and hellofresh Bom, which he doesn't no longer because hellofresh, said absolutely not. We want no part in this. UH-HUH I wanted to play that call because it's like. Yes, it's ridiculous. Yes, it's still who weekly, but what can we actually learned from this and the answer is a lot. Don't be likely Michelle. Don't be likely Michele. You cannot be the person who claims to be one thing only to go back home and behave completely differently especially when you're famous, because when you are famous. That's the thing that we get. That's one of the things that we learned from our calls. It's like. This, it's like the Ellen thing. It's like it's Liam Michelle, but it's like when you are famous. You work with so many people. It's not just famous people. It is assistance and. And PA's and just end the end, the janitorial service and the garden on the. Free all of these people being famous. Everybody remembers you and knows what you look like and tell stories about you and. You become a thing. All of the stories about yourself are being back channeled and for a long time. People didn't have the outlets to reveal those stories, and now they do, and it's. It's coming back to haunt. These people just like ellen just like Leah. It's just so I guess satisfying for a lot of people who had bad experience with her that Sami. Where was brave enough to like just be like fuck this like. This this is someone who is who has dealt with for so long and now she's like I can't worry about what this does to my career. If I called this woman out anymore like I can't let these things bother me, justly jumble, Ega, said you know, and it's a shame that. Sami where ever had to be put in the position of having to make choices over calling out someone's racist behavior or having a career, but that is a situation. Sammy found herself in, and if anything, this should be to watch semi, where call out Liam Michelle in all caps and tell this horrifying story should be both upsetting and horrific and inspiring to people, because it means that people refusing to let these systems hold them down any longer, and keep them quiet any longer, and not to keep repeating myself, but it's like we are trying to learn from these things, and how can we? How can we use the story of Lia Michelle anywhere to make our? Our podcast better. That is the thing that we have to think about now and I think that's good and I hope the conversation we had. Today is different than the one we would have had two weeks ago. You know like I hope that that's kind of the idea of putting things into a nuclear affective and learning, and and reading that email from that hooligan and saying Oh. You're right like we got to cover things in a different way or at least like expand the Horizons Emily Talk About Liam, Michelle about why it's not just funny that her apology was was not grazed for like why. The original incident is so fucked up. You know yeah. So Yes, this episode was different, but I don't to say. I'm sorry that it was different. Because we shouldn't have to apologize for doing an uncomfortable thing, it should be an expected thing. It should be what everyone is doing. But all we can control really really acutely and specifically as our cells, and so we are grateful to the people who have so lovingly reached out to us the first email email that we've been referencing literally ends with with love, and we are just wildly disappointed in ourselves for responding to an email that was sent with love with an absence of it. It's just extremely humbling to know that people who listen to the show it to be better, so do we yeah, we are committed to making the show better. It's going to be better. You have our word, and if you listen to the show, and you think we've broken that word, let us know because that's what the phone line is for. It's not just telling us some. It's spicy piece of Ti-. Hours listening to your phone calls for nothing like it. Because we think are funny. I WANNA. Play your funny stone calls. It's because like we're trying to make show where like you can talk to us and we can listen and so i. hope that you feel like you're being listened to. Because we are freaking listening and specifically to the white audiences because they have more to do, if you see instances of US weekly or people any other website that is focusing far too much on white gossip, and maybe should diversify their gossip. Let them know what those emails are for like it couldn't. It couldn't hurt and it is our responsibility in this moment to call out racism when we see it regardless of how uncomfortable it makes us feel that is what all of us should be learning, and thank you for listening in the past and hopefully thank you for listening in the future and like. What we can only say, thank you, and also like everyone says it's. It's it's like. Did you see Lego donate for a million dollars, yeah? But it's like I'm only good for them. If anyone donates like I say anything else big or small. You know everyone says you can't protest if you can't put a lot of the work, open up your purse, so we're going to do that, too. We're going to donate. To our revenue to city white bail out funds, black lives matter the go. Families of victims of police brutality including Brianna Taylor. Victims of racist violence, and when possible will set a donations because that's always the most helpful move if you can do it, and we can do it, so we're going to do it, but this is not about us. This is about white people, learning and white people doing better so that black people don't have to hold this burden on their own, and it's about communication so by making the Monday show broader more. More expansive by respecting who dat, but also celebrating black. WHO's outside of who dat we hope to make? Not only the Monday show better about the Friday show better, so we'll be back on Tuesday but other episode. Why do I keep saying the Monday episode? We recorded on Mondays Tuesdays we back on Tuesday with another episode and our phone lines are open, six, one nine, who then call him with questions, comments concerns. Black lives matter you can read our show notes for all the ways you can help. Donate although I'm sure you know by now. Safe out there when you're protesting and don't be likely Michelle. Thank you guys, black lives matter. Stay healthy and stay vigilant. Favorite. They WANNA know. Fame it!

You're my friend and I hadn't talked to having along all right so I'm excited. I'm just excited to interview. Would catch up on your life as well. Absolutely it is such a pleasure Being on your show I've watched your journey and I'm so proud of you You've always been an amazing woman. An amazing advocate for a plus sized. pervy fluffy Darrow's like myself so it's just an awesome experience to talk to you again and the catch up. Yes well thank you for that. And you're doing the thing too but let's start from the beginning of your journey who you know. Those listening might not know your journey. So you are from Detroit Michigan and you were a high school band teacher so initially music was gonna be Your Life Long career right yes. Music was GONNA be my lifelong career I Had the awesome pleasure of starting as a high school middle school in College Band Director in Detroit and also so in Mississippi I was assistant director of bands at all four State University. And that was my absolute passion I loved my students. I love teaching. I still teach to this day. I actually teach private lessons here in Atlanta and it was an amazing experience I had the top Tom my life teaching in Detroit. The band director at an arbitral middle school and also Henry Ford High School in Detroit Michigan and those students are still intrical. Go part of my life and they are the reason why I'm so successful today because all of the life skills that I taught them I live by myself so Yeah started off in the de- So when did you move from Detroit to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting and was that a difficult local transition for you so I I was abandoned right there in Detroit and unfortunately in two thousand and three no no two thousand and six all of the music teachers that were hired after two thousand and two were laid off and after I was laid off as a teacher in Michigan I went back to Grad school to finish working on my doctoral degree in clarinet performance and I just lost my passion for for music. Altogether and a big experience happened where I felt my dot com qualifying examinations. Where that's where you keep continuing through your your your terminal degree program but failed all of the courses all of the tests and I thought it was assigned from God like okay guys? Let's do this. Let me figure out what I need to do. So when the happened I started taking acting classes at the school that I was at University of Southern Mississippi and love. Were acting fill at home and I started Being around a group of College Thespians that we're in the the theater department the Black Theatre Students in the theater department. And we did this showcase yes and I fell in love with the kids the students that were there in my peers. Were they are and they encourage me to audition for one of the main stage. Each plays there that the department was having which was blow wedding by Federico Garcia Lorca and auditioned for and got a role in one of the main characters and from their halibut. Okay this just doesn't happen. I don't have any training and I'm in this play with these train actors and and from there I started auditioning for reality shows in addition for the biggest loser and also another show called fat chance there was on oxygen and I got to the Like the top of the list like between me and another person for both of the shows and I was okay this is assigned and so from there. I said Okay I want to move to New York or La went to new. ORC saw the color purple on Broadway changed my life. I want to be Sophia on Broadway but I couldn't sing so we're back to school started taking vocal lessons and just so I can think enough to be in the course and is this like you know this is a sign from God. I need to move to La. I quit my doctoral program and I didn't really like New York because it I really you know fast paced and it wasn't aesthetically pleasing to the eye for me and I went to La. Stay with a friend college friend and that was in two thousand seven eleven years ago and I've packed up my car. Went Back to Detroit for the summer after I quit school did a whole bunch of AH plays and musicals and move to La. And that's when I started my career there. So what obstacles did you face getting your career off the ground. Once you made it to Los Angeles Obstacles well with my career career. What I realized is that it is not a sprint? It's a marathon and it took me eleven years to get where I needed to get to As far as where I am today and the biggest obstacles that I face was staying Present and keeping your eye on the prize because because you can get really really easily distracted and like sidetracked so I haven't worked several jobs. That was hard Struggling everyday three days financially was hard took me five years to become financially stable in La because I I was working every day but I wasn't making enough because of the cost of living so once after those five years passed a pass up I was able to say okay. I have a solid financial base. I can really do things now. I I think the biggest thing was struggling and having all these college degrees and living like a pumper as you would call it a corporate. That was part is thing to me the Because you know always imitate her she would come and visit me and say Mara. I don't know how you're living this life. You weren't raised like this to be living in this little one bedroom apart. 'cause health mom very educated. I see with And I'm like that's not good. You're not leaving me healthy. The and that was the hardest thing just the financial struggles was very difficult now. I thought you were a teacher in Los Angeles. 'cause you were doing something we kids I was. I was a substitute teacher in Los Angeles but Like acting everything in La in Los Angeles is about who you know and networking and people know you and building relationships. So as the sub it took me five years to build relationships with all of the teachers in the school district district where they were calling me for jobs. So if you don't work you don't get paid so if I I said to myself well I can just work three days a week and I castillon auditions. They do that. No you need to work every day because you never know what's going to happen when you do have an audition you don't work so with substitute teaching. Basically if we're Los Angeles Unified School district. You're only paid at this time. One seventy three a day. You can only work between like twenty to twenty four days per month. So that's GonNa be a your base salary or your base Funds that you get for the month before taxes so anything above that you don't get anything above that so you have to plan planet out. And they just took a long time to get acclimated and get set and settled in in teaching. So that I would make a living so things started opening up for me when I started substitute teaching and then I also taught for after school programs teaching music. So that's when everything opened up and it really helped my acting career to because I wasn't focused on acting out with more. So focused on you know sprinkling my little Pixie does to all the students around La trying to make sure to believe in their dreams. James there from doing that and from pouring back into the students. That really helped my career. That's when I started looking on grey's anatomy and things of that nature so Yeah it just just to. It took five years to get settled and build those connections through teaching to make money by career happen. Now you said Porn into the kids did your career what do you mean by just having good Karma being a good person help absolutely having Karma Lifting as we climb. I'm so if I'm trying to pursue my dreams I'm hearing everything that I can fall into. The students encouraging them believing in them having structure structure for them every day at the school. ooh Even if I was a substitute teacher I always try to give them a good lesson or a good word to help them do their day or the week and encourage them to be great. Just like I was trying to do so by building. Emma it helped me fortify my spirit and everything that I was doing. My tutor. Nice now hi Eric. How was your experience in Los Angeles as a plus size women trying to build an acting career? Do you feel do you feel you got quality acting being roles as you're skinny counterparts. You know Sydney's I am a character actress so so I understood or I understand that I am not a leading lady right now. I'm a character actor so I play all of these roles that are not typically. They're not Mar.. I'm just playing a character so I never saw any discrimination towards me because I was a plus size actress. I think if anything I think. Hollywood loves Plus size women in acting roles but sometimes they are stereotypical roles. But I don't really have a problem with that because I know it's not a representative. Correct me it's just playing the character and once you play that character and you play the heck out of that character you can transition to the next thing so I never looked at as a bad thing. I just knew that it was par for the course doing what I look at Samuel L. Jackson the characters that he played when he first started because he was a character actor and once he played the heck got up all of those roles he started graduating to bigger and better roads and leading man roles wants T- established itself as a character actor. I don't you feel we'll just not having the opportunity to be leading. Lady is not cool. I don't think I don't necessarily have not have the opportunity opportunity to be a leading lady When I first got to Los Angeles maybe my thinking ear. I auditioned for Glee The same character a bit amber Riley had so that's the leading lady role I just Basically I know that it takes a while for you to get those leading arose by paying your dues and playing co-star roads and moving up to guest star and then eventually being a series regular or you know and then after you play the heck out of TV. Rose you get the movie roles so for me. I was going in the trajectory of like I guess if there was a written path of how everything works as far as how you move up the ranks and acting and that's what I was doing like traditional route. That's not always the standard but that's what I was following So I never felt like I was left out because because I was plus sized. I've never felt that way if anything I think I stand out because I plus is and I embrace it and I love it so never bothered me. Org was never an issue now while you were living in Los Angeles pursuing your career living your life is that during the time you got sick and diagnosed with type two diabetes. No I actually was diagnosed with diabetes in two thousand and two you before I moved to Los Angeles and I didn't really understand what the disease was. And what it entailed and then and unfortunately my brother passed away of it from the disease. He died of complications from diabetes from Kito acidosis and luckily when I got to Los Angeles I was on a reality show called Dan. Sure Azoff or oxygen and that was the first time that I was able to learn more and be able to control the disease figuring now how to live as curving woman but a healthier curvy woman by maintaining my diet and my exercise regimen and just trying to figure the things out but you know luckily from that show it taught me how to Maintain all of the things that I'm doing with my health and my sugar management management so when you decided to try for dance your cross on on oxygen. Where you looking Huh? Ah was all about it do did you want to get on a show to help you lose weight on purpose. Just because of the diabetes or was it like a to win one you just were looking for exposure to one. I have to be honest It it was a tougher. I can't you know have to be very transparent. Person knows a two for one for exposure and honestly being on dash ask all that was the catalyst that you know helped. My career was the first because I was on that show I got Badger and then I booked my first TV Gig all all because of the show so definitely me trying to get healthy and also trying to gain TV exposure which it worked. So I'm happy about it. Yeah that's it's half. The battle is being seen absolutely now. Why did you move to Atlanta? And how was that transition. Well I moved to Atlanta because I booked a job as a series regular on Oprah. We're free networks new show ambitions and they relocated me to Atlanta Georgia. They relocated you. They paid for I staff for you to move. Yes ma'am yes Ma'am holidays only will thank you father God so your loss loss Angeles agent got you that audition and you auditioned for that loss Angeles or did you had to go to Atlanta audition okay. So here's there's a story or here's the deal. My I don't have a Los Angeles agent anymore. My agent is Byu SB talent in Atlanta Georgia. shout out to ten in Chris. My wonderful talent ages. They are amazing. They are the reason why. I'm on ambitions They got me the audition and what happened was. Is that the casting director for ambitions. Also the caffeine director for two other shows that I was on in Atlanta caught the quad on bt and also saint centers. There's on bounce TV and when I was on the quad and on saints the Centers I was in Atlanta local higher. So usually I would have to fly myself out how to work in Atlanta for those jobs. Would George Pierre who was a South East South Eastern casting director in this area. He's very popular and he's amazing. Amazing raising man and amazing casting director remembered how much I dedicated myself to doing that. And how I never complained and so this Job came up for. I am vicious for a series regular.

Celebs Who Have Stepped Up for the Black Lives Matter Movement | Tea Time

"Hello and welcome to teach is this is a weekly pop culture podcast on the podcast network I Kelly I'm rob and I'M AMELIA! What am I? So last week we did not report a show. We decided to take off and see the space and listen and read educate ourselves donate, and just in general do what we could to support. The black lives matter movement happening in our country right now. And obviously the work dismantle the systemic racism in our country is not over shouldn't be over until we see real and actionable change that being said we know we have a light hearted podcast. Hopefully, t time allows you to tune in once a week. Unplug your brain. Listen to celebrity fluff for a while, but that doesn't mean that we can't or shouldn't do our part in improving the content that we put out, and we have a commitment to making this podcast the very best that it can be so earlier this week. The teatime crew met. Met and talked about tangible changes, we can make to the show to commit to being better allies, including expanding our bubble of thought and news and research, and in general, just expanding the scope of our coverage beyond just making fun of Davidson every week. which there's a time and place, but we know that we can do better. Yes, so please going forward. Continue to educate yourselves on what you can do for the black lives matter movement, and to dismantle you know the white supremacy that exists and pervades in this society, and we will do the same. you know we love you guys so much, and we're so appreciative of you and They're obviously so many ways you can participate. And if you have the means to donate. we've each donated to a number of really important organizations, and we will include the organizations in the show notes. And in the long run, you know this podcast does not matter, but black lives do and making the most of the current moment. Society definitely does yeah, like wasn't Amelia's said very eloquently and heartfelt. We We make a lot of jokes about you know only our bombs listening to time, but we know that's actually not the case. We have by our modest standards. A lot of listeners in their responsibility that comes with every one of those listeners, so we're committed to educating ourselves to making a conscious effort to. To, confront our privilege and being more representative of black celebrities and other people of Color and just started doing better, and we're going to start now so I think we're gonNA. Kick off the show by talking about just celebrities who have stepped up this week. We like to call people out, and there are so many people to call out, but I think we'd rather talk about the celebrities who have really made a good example and just giving us something to look up to in the past couple of weeks. Okay so I want to start out with John Boyega. Who is not someone that we've talked about a lot on this podcast and I think he is a great example of someone who has been fighting the good fight for a long time. He's not doing anything new by speaking about black lives matter but I think people finally took notice of it, and his career suffered for it and this week. He talked about that at a rally in Hyde Park on June third. So he was out there early, a lot of the celebrities were talking about route there early and people have been protesting sense, but you know the ones that normalized really showing up early I think really made a difference and John Boyega was a really significant one, so he attended a black lives matter rally in Hyde Park, and said he basically was like look. I. Don't know if I'm going to have a career after this, but fuck that which I think. Think is something that he has proven. He believes in for a long time throughout the Star Wars, press cycle, and the heat that he's received from fans, online and I highly recommend watching his speech I. Absolutely CanNot do justice. He was extremely emotional. He spoke extremely eloquently about you know about how black lives matter and we've always been important, and he says we've always meant something, and he's like I'm waiting like I've been waiting. We're GONNA make it happen. And I just you know I. It's really risky. Especially the black actor in Hollywood. Who's seen you know? He got written out. Basically the last star wars movie, and in favor of redeeming Adam drivers space Nazi like so he of all people knows like the consequences. That's began on something like this can have because he's seen. It and I think there was first of all I. Think him just in general you know giving the speech was huge, and then also there's been this flood of support for him on social media whether or not these directors that were tweeting at him. We'll act on that obviously matters. But all these people were tweeting. Being like I would literally like role in a barrel of glass for job. Right now like, please come talk to me, so you know he's always been outspoken and he continues to be a really good example so. I've moved past Adam driver space Nazi. Where like Don with him off go only. Of that, yeah, too all right? Who else who else was at protests this week? You know we've talked about her before she is, she's iconic. She's a Queen Kiki Palmer. We Love Kiki, P. Kiki. Palmer was out protesting and there was a video circulating thought on twitter. Did you guys see it on twitter? Okay Yeah and she was just. You know leading kind of a group of protesters and asking the police officers guarding this building to walk with her and a group of protesters and. They didn't. They didn't really end up doing that, but they Took a knee with her and she actually had this really great op-ed that she wrote in variety and it was just. It was just like to the point, really explained the reasoning why she wanted the officers to walk with her, and with everyone else and it was you know I'm not doing it justice, but I will tweet it out pretty much. Just like you know live over property, which is something that I think some people are of struggling to understand, but she laid it out so well that I just highly recommend reading about it and You know when it comes down to it I. Human Life is much more important than some you know building and the protesters that she was marching with You know they were. Really peaceful and it was, but it was just really great to see her just out in about and putting. Change like it, not just saying you're talking about it, but actually doing something for it, which is really cool, because as a celebrity, you know I'm sure that's a harder because she's a public figure and whatnot, so she's just on the forefront. She's great. There's just another reason to stand her. Yes, absolutely, no choice at this point, but I stand choice. No Toys Stan Kiki forever another person that was there kind of from the beginning who we talk about honestly a lot on this podcast and I'm not. Really familiar with her music, but she's like an a-list celebrities Paparazzi everywhere. She goes Halsey and she was at a lot of the L.. A. Protests basically from the minute that they started and. She is a good example of using her white privilege and platform for good and it's. Honestly I. I can't think of a celebrity who in quarantine who's been more photographed and written about, but like holly steps out in a mask and goes to the grocery store Halsey, Xyz Corentin, maybe like me like this group is talked to her multiple times since all of this started so to have these allies have no choice but to talk about the protest because looking halls. He's there and if they wanted to all, you had to talk about black lives, matter which is fucking great and she was helping a lot of protesters. In Los Angeles in general, just calling people out on twitter and seven, just using her enormous platform for good, so how's he? May Be have to stand here as well now. I may have to listen to a Halsey. Okay celebs Kate. We also want to highlight some other people who have stepped up online or and other other ways some funny, some real just kind of a launched. It's been two weeks. There are a lot of people that have have done some really good things so I wanNA. Highlight beyond say because whatever you can highlight beyond say you gotta highly on Saint and she did A. A speech for Youtube Dear Class of two thousand and twenty livestream, and first of all like ten minutes of beyond talking about literally, anything is like just I. Just need that, and that's just a balm for the soul, but she gave this speech that was honestly really perfect inspirational, which is a hard thing to do right now. She was talking to graduates about. She's talking about the protests and the black lives matter. Movement endured flights murder, but she basically was like. If any time in history can prove to you that you are capable of affecting real change like it should be right now like you should be taking this, and realizing like you can have an impact, which is a great way to make you know. Make a really sad. Really you know momentous time really inspirational to a group of kids who have had a really shitty year in a Lotta ways, so it's ten minutes long and like it is pretty perfect. Start to finish, and she's just staring into the camera beam beyond say. They recommend watching it. I also wanted to talk about so Alexis. Oh Hanin who has always been a top tier celebrity husband. He's the founder of Reddit married Serena Williams. And we've talked about him a couple of times because he's just always super supportive in like a non showy way Kinda yes, and not to be like. Oh, here's a white man who's done a great job this week. Need to, but I think he. He's a really great example of a really powerful figure in media. Who realized that he needed to step back so this week he resigned from the board of directors and encourage them explicitly to replace him with the black candidate, and they very quickly did in hiring Michael Cbo, and then Alexis and Serena basically released a video talking about the decision, and he basically was like. Like you know my his daughter, who is black? He's like I need to have an answer when she grows up in his asked me, what did you do and you know he? Oh, he's always been really supportive of serene is nearly outspoken and donate a lot of money to these issues, and he just put his money whereas this, and it just seems like a really good example of like actionable. No one deserves Serena Williams, but he almost. Compliment that I get. I also love when he showed up to one of her matches or it was like. Maria Sharapova match with like a don't do drugs shirt. He's always been subtle. Here talking. -actly. So what else do you WanNa? Give a shout. I skied Jackson. Who Out of you? Guys are familiar? Who are listening? She's eighteen years old like Disney channel. TV, she's eighteen yeah! Oh, she was on a TV show, called Jesse on the Disney channel issues in smurfs couple things. She's a mean very famous around circulates to say anyway very popular on twitter, and she has used this time to call out racist teenagers on twitter, where like her fans will crowd sourcing center like? Able recedes of people at their schools or people in their town, doing shitty things and racists things and she will blast them. She will like research. You'll find their name their hometown, their high school like she's like this person's on the cheer team at this game. And like has actually caused change in a lot of these small towns in high schools and caused these teenagers to have repercussions on social media, and she's also having a lot of fun with it. She's like a hilarious person in general and then I tried to go back. And like find some of these, and now she's looking for a good vanilla-scented perfume, which so am I on twitter, but she's. Her twitter to call people out which is great, honestly gauge got a big fan base like the Batman of twitter you know. What is it? We don't deserve, but we need or something. That's great, another person who's been. She's been strapping up for over fifty years I just WanNa. Give a shout out to Jane Fonda. Always Jane Fonda. Who is the perfect example of being like a privilege white celebrity ally? She's been doing the stuff for fifty frigging years, people. She's been protesting she and using her platform and she has been. Marching and just for change, not just for black lives matter movement, but for climate change in like the Vietnam War, and it's just this woman is to. She looks amazing by the way she looks me. Regardless yeah but. This is just shows you and celebrities out there you have no excuse. If Jane Fonda is doing this getting arrested at eighty two. You have no excuse. But anyway she went on the Don Lemon Show on CNN, and talked about white supremacy and black lives matter and she's also been using her fire drill Fridays Account, which is her climate change I guess platform to talk about black lives, matter and to give. Women of Color Black Women especially a platform there and she. You know she. She's another one you to stand her because she's great to. Jane. Fonda Liz has a lot to apologize for in this last category, so we'll just. We'll just give her the floor. All right we talked about glee. We talked about Michelle did. I, said on vocals alone Leah Michelle was the MVP of this pilot. Since that podcast, and she's always been a known as a bitch on set and Kinda and difficult to work with, but. Like within this last week. Samantha wear who played Jane Straighten on the Sixth Season of Lena actually tap out before then I think I. Only Four Seasons but Smith aware who worked with Lee, Michelle onset ugly. Came out and quote tweeted Michelle tweet about George Floyd and said L. Mayo remember when you made my first television Gig a living, hell, 'cause I'll never forget. I, believe he told everyone that if you had the opportunity would shit in my way amongst other traumatic micro aggressions that made me question a career in Hollywood dot dot dot. Since. A tweet has come out. There have been multiple other people that have worked with Michelle not only in Glee, but another project spurs citing the same exact thing. Amber Riley. Who Played Mercedes on the show? Mary. Famous character worked with them since the pilots season one at first and come out directly, but she started like tweeting replies, Jeff's of the sipping tea and kind of laughing a little nod that she's like seen it acknowledged. And then later she expanded. She went on an episode of Real Quick Danielle Young. and. She's quoted as saying I'M NOT GONNA say that Liam. Michelle's racist shelter pregnant. I think ever needs to chill. You dragged couple of days, but at the same time in my inbox, a lot of black actors and actresses, telling me their stories, and letting me know that they have dealt with the same things on, said being terrorized by the white girls that are the leads of the show. Then Heather Morris who plays Brittany on show who we try to avoid speaking about because she's do a lot of us. Did a very convoluted statement. Kinda ended up neither here, nor there said hate is a disease I'd never want to spread it to anyone else. Having said that. was she unpleasant to work with very much so like she just kind of went around in little circles. Didn't add a lot to the conversation so. As you well, but anyway it's now i. mean there have been multiple accusations against Michelle, specifically targeting women and people of Color on her sets in which. I, she's since apologized. And you know we'll see whatever she acts going forward, but yeah, certainly not the MVP obviously had no. Single clue about any of this, which is why we're talking about it right? Lean right. She's always I. It's been known I, guess, but I'm really happy that these stories are coming out and she's been very specifically called out and that these women are brave enough to say it because Shell is still tucked under Ryan Murphy's low. You know in her and like. She hopefully there will be real repercussions about stuff like that so. We shall see Michelle certainly not MVP can't say their careers thriving anyway Phero. That's. Yeah so we'll. We'll see in other celebrity news lock going on a Kate John Takeaway. Do this is still tangentially related to the protests in recent weeks, but guys when I have a concrete reason to talk about k. pop from a political timely standpoint. You're damn right. I mean they take it so over the past few weeks. K Pop fans have used just truly stunning ability to mobilize online, which usually they use for like streaming songs breaking records. You know sometimes getting into my DM's in a way that I don't like. This time they use it to drown out racist hashtags and clog up police APPS. It's been coming everywhere. It's been dubbed the Fan Cam Revolution. Somebody was like the revolution. We'll be Fanta camped. And basically what they did is if people were trying to get like blue lives matter white lives matter like trending. They just started masturbating Shag with like fan cams and like k. pop videos, and so then not only was it just like you couldn't find anything real on that Hashtag. It was also would show up under a little K pop trends. It'd be like trending in K pop. And then like you couldn't find anything so was great. They also want to step further and a bunch of police departments around the country were asking people to send in videos like looting and protesters like so that they could find people and arrest people and K pop fans took over and started flooding in these like quote Unquote Snitch APPs. With Obama, so they either the APP would overload like they like broke several of these APPs or Just like any real videos were just like totally drown out like in which I actually did someone in because I wanted to have the experience. I do have a lot of fan cams on my phone, and it was really easy to do and it. It works really well. I like scrolling through the videos. It was like all POPs. That was great. Oh Bt S. actually donated a million dollars to the black lives matter movement last week, which is great because k pop benefits a lot from black culture and black music creators, and it's important for for idols, even if they're in create, step up, and they did and bts. Fans decided to match them Matt. Donation and they managed to do it in twenty four hours. Yes so it was just really nice to see the stand using their ability for mobilization for good. Obviously, it's not the first time bts fans have done a lot of charitable giving in the past, which is why they had the structures in place to do this so quickly obviously like. I don't know marvel fan base could be. Let's dollars like in twenty four hours and have twitter accounts that already existed in charitable organizations already in place, so yeah, you lines are lazier. Just, as an example of a less organized fandom decided, it was just really nice to see to see kind of their unique level of mobilization used for him this week. Speaking of phantoms Oh God. Sorry I've just been ranting this whole. Damn episode, but. Okay I'm GonNa, make this quick, because I, don't want to waste a lot of time on her, because she literally is not worth it, but here's what I have to say about. JK rollings bullshit. If you're one of the richest most privileged women in the world what you don't need to be doing during our current moment of staggering racial injustice is tweeting about how you're a victim because you think Trans Women are women and that's what jk rollings been doing. She published a whole essay of just hateful irresponsible ignorance this week about why she's a victim, and why she thinks that Trans people should never rights and are real, which was just bullshit? You don't need to read it. It's all the stereotypes and all the hateful shit. The people have been spewing for literally decades. What I do recommend looking at is. Daniel Radcliffe posted a really great resp-, not a direct response but I mean. Everyone knew it was a direct response where he just you know validated trans identity is and was like is for you I see you you're valid. He wrote about donating to the Trevor Project which supports lgbtq youths. The glad project had a really great response, and they also spurred a lot of other Harry Potter. CAST members to tweeting about Trans Rights and being like you're you're valid. Transplant are women. So that was really meaningful. That was genuine. We can ignore rolling like she does not matter. But it was nice to see people kind of rallying around that. The other part of this I want to talk about because this category. Who knows what this category is I guess it's celebrity news this week, but in media. K. Rolling when she tweeted out her hateful. Anti Trans Essay used twitter function to her fourteen point five million twitter followers, where you can't respond to the tweet, which is a new function on twitter for better or worse, and I am curious how you guys feel about it, because in my opinion, and if you're inflicting your turf reviews on forty five million people, you should let those people respond. Visible Way, but I do understand why. Twitter made this a thing I mean nobody wants to get ratio, but like slim's ratio ratios healthy. You know sometimes you deserve it honestly right like in this case. But I also like you can ratio anyway like if you click on the tweet, you can see what people are saying in. The quoted RT's like that's a new banks like if somebody has a thousand quote, Re tweets and twenty railway tweets. It's like obviously the talking about her, and it's interesting yet. I might have to re download that godforsaken APP I thought. Well. That's what I'm saying. That's how I got rid of it awhile back, but now there's so many good, maybe I mean I don't know. This guy in this I was like this was some cowardly bullshit from her but I. do understand why it happened. You can still get ratio it. It's just like in a different way on the hunger games train. I've been waiting. Mark Tomorrow appears guys Because she's great and she tweeted a lot of and stuff this week so. Anyway. Like society doesn't need you anymore. Like just go sit on a beach with your literal billions of dollars correct. Yeah in other celebrity news, beyonce as absolutely about to rake it in apparently according to the sun, she's in talks, and like getting close to signing a one hundred million dollar deal with Disney tour gone only three projects. which is so mind blowing monetarily? It's absolutely fucking awesome. One of those project is Black Panther to which India part of the film soundtrack, but apparently the other two projects maybe would be documentaries for Disney. Plus which like I'm I think I'm one of the only people that loved the lion king like the remake another in it, her voice, her speaking voice is like actual just butter like it makes. Calms you can read the look seriously so I want her to i. mean her and Morgan. Freeman have the two best voices in the game. They can just narrate everything going forward. What animal like if beyond say was going to do like the Meghan Markle? Elephant documentary like? To talk about. Wow putting you on the spot any animal in the whole world well. She was greatest Nala. Talk about lions. Yeah is. Reese, Witherspoon, that did the Qube show about Lions Oh God. Lavar you guys. Like it was like Queens of the Sahara or something and. Yeah thank God of. That didn't cross my path. I do not know about that Sorry directly into the. So random, no, this is this is great, because just as random iggy Azalea, who we try again not to talk about two months. She's come up actually really really to while hiding. For Awhile apparently. She just had her first child. A baby boy with playboy Cardi a rapper. She's been dating since twenty eighteen and this great, not a lot of Info here, except for the actual announcement of this child found some humor in In chuckled at so she put up on our stories, just black and white print and she goes I. Have A son. and. It's like I kept waiting for the right time. Say something, but it feels like the more time passes the more I realize Bola. She's just talking about how she waited a bit, but like there's not a single emoji. There's not even an exclamation mark. There's not like a key. I have some exciting news literally. I'll share with you. Guys had just as I have a son. Blacks print period I. Know You know what I'm GonNa. Say because you watch the office, but that's when this the happy it's. Your birthday is your. That is literally what it was like. You said this is great. Exploration just want. Rounding out this utterly Bizarre Category Please Amelia, all right way well, you know it happened. Ben. Affleck has offense count. He already has an instagram account, but guess what he has a to and some you know Super Sleuth these super sleuths on twitter appear from time to time God bless Ya You should have a job. You know working for the FBI because it's. It's actually amazing. This woman named Kelsey Wijkman uncovered his finstrom account. which okay, I'm sorry, but the the handle. We have talked hand because it is at positive attitude hunting. Apple. Shuttle, which is I guess a reference to goodwill hunting, but also sounds like he's going to quit acting and start up like a life coaching thing out of his. Brentwood. Maybe garrity has maybe already has but. Anna Armus and Jennifer Garner. Mother of his children follow the account, so do we think this is a real thing or is this like? Hey, I'm joking here I want some press. That's my take. I think they're publicists is so good, you know. They had the matching that they've been taken the walk right in the Paparazzi. They had their pictured jumping over his locked gate the other day. I genuinely think they have an incredible PR team. Who is like you know what people love discovering things? Celebrities don't want them to know about and so they. I genuinely think that they like crafted the spin stuff so that people would find it however. He is so corny, especially an instagram. Arowana antidote. Armez posted an instagram low. It said photo credit lease, but like P. L. S. like. I could see. US? Doing this I don't know why. No. It's Joe Good. Though that's Kinda why I think it is 'cause, it's like Ben Affleck coming a positive positive attitude hunting. No, he'd be like what. Comment. Oh my God. Yeah, that that you know Ghada. Anymore and also what I don't know this is a segue to what is it on a day? Armistice doing with a life size cutout of herself that she made like two of the three athlete children put in her yard. What did I? Don't why? Why literally? Whose Yard is is the size cutoff Ben Affleck Shirt! No, it's her yard. Why are the athlete children in her yard, just hanging out at girlfriend's house. I guess those poor kids I mean. I just I it. Doesn't it literally? I, I'm speech. I. Don't play. Probably. I! Saw Confused Amelia. Do you think that was a gift? It was just recently your birthday. It was like how funny gag prop thing? Air Fat heads DOT COM growl. Familiar where do you think a pulled? The thing is is like the cut out. Wasn't if you look at it? It's like her posing, but it's not like. It was posing for a movie or She's like they stole like the right AMC. Exactly so I don't know I just I think it might go back to the whole They have a great publicity team and they're just like the. Press. Yeah exactly there's like here we go, which is. Sure I guess I'm confused. If you guys have any info on the arms of your live in that area or know anything about them, I'm you can tweet us. Next! is a look back because. It's June eleventh as we're recording. We are six months into this year halfway done deals like it's gone by simultaneously like in a blink of an eye and also taken ten attorneys to be here on June ten, the river June eleven. So this category is just reflecting on. Some of the things at teatime has talked about this year twenty twenty alone that feel like a different lifetime ago. One of which Amelia is like your bread and butter. It's my bread and butter. I honestly think I was thinking about this the other day. The feel good story of the last five years I think was the college admissions. and. Laurie Laurie Laflin Aunt Becky as some people call her. This was back at the end of May. So this is more recent, but her and her husband target Dude Massimo June newly. They pled guilty, and honestly this seems like it happened a year ago and I. Honestly does it's it's wild, and of course you know I mean. I won't go into the whole systematic oppression, because there obviously is, and this is just more evidence that there is. But. She's literally not going to be there for more than two months, so and he's there for five months, which is absolutely insane and injustice, but anyway it. That's the the feel good story the last five years. Wet also happens here that we talked about was A. Date or the other, but when the pictures came out of them on the Rowing Machines, Oh yes. Any. Single minute physical is. Actually, not that long ago, but it feels like. been like you decide. What is time anyway? As, Remember Karen by person named Jessica at a person named Mark on love is blind. Take your minds back to around Valentine's Day of this year. Do you remember when we gave a that? She fed her golden retriever red wine out of a glass. Law sleepover that for like ninety two. And their age gap and Barnet's commitment issues like thinking about love is mine and the commitment we had to that show happening only in February is insane. That's wild I, remember very specifically the last meal like the last meal out that I had before I. Think it was a week before we got sent home from work for Corona I was so annoyed because I was sitting there, trying to eat with my friend that I hadn't seen in a long time and the table US would not shut up about Jessica and Barnett from. I was like I. Remember sitting and I remember I went to wash my hands. I did the whole song thing like it was like right before really mad. I remember calling back like Oh my God. They're still talking about Louis Plant. That's like. Yeah also cheer the thing that brought us like the last thing that brought us real joy January released January aid you remember listening, and looking at Gerry encourages mates only deep inside you being like yeah, life is okay. Right. Monica. Fucking my coaching, the shit out of those teenagers and you cared about so much. Much. This is so much sadder after Daytona canceled. Daytonas Crawley with. Krona virus so that. In general. The whole tier experience. also I feel like this was a little bit more recent, but it might have been February. Is the woman in the London subway station who sal shallow and went viral tried looking her up. She's stealing things. Take it a little bit of a break since like around February as everyone has I guess, but yet watching her saying feeling so inspired and happy like it feels like I was a different age. We talked for like a good for minutes about whether or not you. Know what I know. I tried looking that a parent. She told Alan. At definitely like was real Blah fucking still, emily. About we'll see, let time really tell on that one. Next one that happened this year. Okay, this is going to blow your mind. Because remember this show. His only been on for a year, but season three of one of my favorite shows, the mass singer ended literally weeks ago. When your member please, mass singer is only started this year, nor Alright then the within the last year like. Sorry, sorry, sorry last year last year because it really. Is Time. That'd be wild, but any, but it's still like season three seasons, and that's that's crazy. I remember the day that the NBA shutdown was day. The Sarah Palin saying baby got back Oh. Kate everyone was like way. We'll never get worse from this and then twenty twenty one st downs out. Storing that if Now you now. Just an iconic show I. Honestly Love. It's embarrassing. That's fine Who Do you think? I WanNa know your guesses. Who Do you think we'll be on season for? Like mark, Consuegra lows or something I feel. Kelly rebuy cannot escape their marriage. Written about call what. and. To be to be a part of content, they will. Do the most ridiculous about personal info by their children just to get a headline, so maybe mark can swim. I that. Kate have picks I don't I'm done thinking about it. Okay, all right well. Okay fine moving on moving on. Sarah Palin. Bid Was the only pull that out, and then I just tapped out. Sure I get it okay. My final question for this really happened this year was did twenty twenty peak when parasite won best picture. Yes, or yes, wow, I remember that happening and winning so many words filing picture and everyone was so bugging happy for twenty four hours. We were like this is great. Hollywood is fixed. The movies are good and everyone would literally just like. Can't that actually won like? Happen Home A. Whole year tanked from there. It really did. Really. We're all sitting here like fuck. Yeah I just want to go back to to just hearing. Jane Fonda that said it. It was it. She's always on the right side of history. Really. Really is I WANNA. Be Right, extra, Sean you again. Just absolutely. Yes, had Oh, my God. Good Times anyway that will happen this year. Kill me now, okay? We're wrapping up this episode as always with some unanswerable questions. These are pretty bizarre this week trying to stir yeah, just very random. These are just two weeks of like the random little things that we've seen have been like. We'll come back to that at a better time, so Kate Blanchett girl she said on a podcast with the former Australian. Prime Minister Julia Gillard I don't know why she was on a podcast whether we're all bored in quarantine and what she told her among many other more important things, but this is the one I want to focus on. had been if a chainsaw accident yesterday, which sounds very very exciting, but wasn't apart from nick to the head. I'm fine. My question simply as did Kate Blanchett get into a chainsaw accident when she lives in East Sussex England and I'm sure has a lot of people who could operate chainsaws for her. This is a fantastic question. For many reasons because you're right, she I bet she has no limit of people that could operate chainsaws for her. Also in when you need a chainsaw, it's a pretty serious What like not Aaron but like activity we're like I don't know what you could possibly need. Chain for that like couldn't way or be done by a professional. Marie. This is like how pete like. J. Lo has her legs insured or like other like Kate Blanchett is very fair, woman, very beautiful actress. That her whole the whole money. You're right or is like her and her face basically. A knit to the head is I know. With, a chainsaw I wondered. If I got a paper cut anywhere. I'm like this is serious. She changed herself in the head. My God I was looking at what you can use a chainsaw for and got a little history of chains did not need I just needed like current uses her chainsaws. There are two main things. One is cutting down trees or branches of trees, which I was like. That's manual labor. That's not something cate. Blanchett is doing right. The other thing it's used for is like and I. Don't think it's this is common, but it can be used for like shaping those shrubs into like. Shame. Like the people that take a Bush and they're like. I'M GONNA, make it. It's wrath. My theory is Kate. Blanchett is bored. She picked up a new hobby. She was like I'm GonNA learn how to shape shrubbery and so that's what she was doing. When she chainsaw resolve in the face I was just talking to seeking about how i. need some new hobbies. I don't think that changed sides. Trump will be one of them, but maybe if people in Chechnya's about it maybe all. Oh my God the last question. You have for that so equally confounding I. I really haven't thought about since. I saw it yesterday. Is Ryan Murphy's House. His house is on the July. Cover of architectural digest was profiled. End It's fights very beautiful house. He has multiple different designers have done it ball Blah very nice fancy house, but the one thing that caught my eye that I have not been able to track down except for this one people article. In his home. Is His white Spanish style. And it looks like from the back of the house looking in he has this little sign edge in kind of like a cursive. cursive loosely foreign right, and it says Oh. California and it's on two different parts of the house. It looks like the show is on the wall of the House and then the California is kind of on the wall of deck in. There's like this little patio on the inside so seemingly when you're inside the house, all you can the Oh and then you can never see the California. And my question is you guys should look it up. The cursive show got off full, and it's a pretty popular thing now every instagram influence, or has some little, like Bo Nui above their bed and cursive, like it's very popular thing to have these signs now, but on a scale that read Murphy. Has it be the amount of money has to make this actually like a good cursive scripture. It looked so haphazardly placed on this house. I kinda can't believe that this is purposeful, but it is because it was like a tear down. He built his home from the ground up. I'm very confused about the sign of the Oh California. It's very ugly. Yeah, I also thought first of all like you said. It's not a font like a cursive font very clearly written like a child wrote it in curse it like third grade right after learn cursed him like. Paper and then he like put it on his wall. Because it's like you like the John, mullany like I know how big letters should be like it's not. It's not space straight like the letters get. Like towards the end, and like the O. is weird, and his children have done it because he has two kids, but it doesn't mention anything about it literally doesn't talk about this weird ass sign on his house and I need answers. A really wanted his children like so like caught up with California that they were like. Oh California rate. Did Children. Even right there was this Ryan Murphy did. Is this an artist's work in? Maybe I've been really offensive about it, but it just looks like the font should have been worked on for a little bit longer. Maybe they had to have been. There had to have been a better way. There's a backstory here and I need it people. This is a cry for help. Our Internet investigators found that applicants fine. Why why this has why really on his house? In Mike, this at teatime underscore thirty three okay? Thank you so much for listening. Be sure to check out. The show notes for places you can donate to black lives matter, thank you our producer I'm Liz Kelly. L.! Meyer.

Ricki Lake on losing her husband to suicide, witnessing 9/11 and medical marijuana

"There's an interview and I couldn't be more excited about today's episode Ricky Lake One of the talk show greats and icon of the nineties you know you words on the fives of never actually uses licensor this is the Dan the Larry you know before we spoke on the phone okay I was trying to when you decided to leave the show I was twenty one and I was starting to accept my sexuality obviously growing up I moved to the kayode come out and I just think it's mart an elevated content they wanted to do more like insipid kind of content so it wasn't what I wanted to do but I won the anyway I was amazing and it was hello honestly your show growing up for me meant so much and I was looking back at the dates actually last night and it makes perfect sense to me now right because Ricky Lake changed to life in such a dramatic way this is must-listen interview we have lots back catalogue though as well Celine Dion Madonna loads tragic death of her husband we're going to talk about why she now has the need for therapy dog who's actually arrived to be in the room with us for the interview we're GonNa talk about her the parents of course on X. Factors Liberty how she cheated death in a fire which he lists herself and also how nine eleven away from that at that time in my life so to go back to it I really wanted to do something because I felt like I had something to say and the people I was in business with didn't really want to do something that was like the lesson that I don't WanNa do talk shows anymore it was it was a really challenging time because going back on the air for me as a huge deal you know I did my last talk show for eleven years and I I walked tradeable self-titled chat show of course she has had a life like no other she opens up about that life like no one else so today we're going to talk about now my goodness I am excited let's go up close and in depth here is Ricki Lake Ricki Lake you honestly I can't tell you how exciting this is for me genuinely I've been to feed you once before but it was over the phone what was it for what was I promoting it was four the return of your chat show okay in two thousand and two thousand twelve thousand twelve thousand maybe actually I think January two thousand thirteen I'm on the air when I was ten years old and at that point so I'm growing up in New Zealand Guy Oversee struggling with his sexuality knowing the next one as soon as it becomes available at the end of my interview Ricky Lake as well do stay tuned because we've got a lot of discussion about one of my recent interviews with James Blunt but right Oh you were there for me through that entire time of my adolescence my growing up and my understanding actually about what the world was because the nineties was such a fascinating time down that I'm gay but thinking actually is this world ever going to be safe enough for me to come out which at that point I didn't think it then when you were off air life and that is because I spent my years from when I was ten years old when I was twenty one years essentially learning about the world learning about how to live through wikileaks we'll come up to me and say you helped me come to terms with myself for learn to love myself or see myself represented on TV and for me having been exposed to the business via John Treating all couples gay couples biracial couples everyone treated the same but it's just how I was instinctively I always was of course but at the time that was not normal it's more of a stars from Sam Smith to its shares all you need to subscribe right now to the Danielson interview and you can listen back free to all of those interviews you'll also get at a cl- I mean it was just like we were out and about late at night with doing it for that long one hundred percent absolutely it was just an Emmy Award winning on TV I understand that now but time we you know it was just it just felt so normal and it's crazy also aim of social change and you were at the forefront of it unbeknownst to me like the truth is I don't mean to you off but I I hear that so many times so many gay I think that when you came on air because to me you obviously there's a huge age gap now but at the time I viewed you as an adult you know but if a guiding light but and I think I had I didn't know who I was and it's only now that I look back on my journey where I am in my life I mean I'm so much better as like me now oh funny drew I in my my I only I'd been nominated before but to win and I was in a I was with my husband my husband who's no longer with us but we were like how he no age you know that's something that comes with age the life experience that you have you really get to know yourself and for me it's a look at the trajectory of my career through trauma I long I literally with Channel Oprah in the beginning you know they said I could do a talk show okay I'll I can do it just like hairspray John Waters picked me to play Tracy turnblad sure he thinks I can dance okay found myself I found my path I found my passion I found out like the things I really care about and during that show the time of the show I mean I was just so green and so yeah a jump in and assume I can do it same same for the show I really haven't studied singing in a really long time but they think I can do a pretty good too okay okay whereas my chat show host and she meant so much differently in terms of society is while what she did and how much groundsheet broke was amazing but for my waters and divine and that whole world it was second nature for me to treat everybody the same it never at the time I would be doing something that's like you know breaking the mold the effort on the part of the people producing my show it was the topic was always the same as oprah it was just always from the younger person's perspective so you know Oprah would do a show like I don't understand my daughter when you came on Air Ricky you only twenty four years twenty four I was twenty three when they hired me and so I if you look at that you think what nerve like who is my key light where's my microphone you know dove it it is fascinating because I think obviously for a four baby boomers was absolutely the humidity's I'm not sure you're familiar but I'm really proud of the work that I do these days it doesn't pay the bills like a talk show but it's I've done that like I made enough she blah Blah Blah and my mother is driving me crazy so it was just that little trick and we were able to tap into this really fun urban outspoken when you do as a result of that show such a powerful audience and I think people like rooted for me I think it's like unlike oprah who I love I think what that generation misses the point about right is that actually if it wasn't mean joked about on friends and if it wasn't mean talked about on you know to be doing that and have the immediacy now of the nasty I mean I just I feel like my show is amazing at that time and I love the work I do now I make dr the young kids who watch friends and say oh that's inappropriate how can you make jokes about trans issues like that talk about gay people saying bought the the the mode that I'm in I think you know in everything I've done like the my audience my very loyal fan base has has had my back developed and actually there's a big controversy now with friends for example because you have lots of the young generation Y.. Out The really young any running really focused on things that I feel important and I think are really making a difference and I guess you have this generation of people like me who will forever be really engaged Nice she was like my mentor my mentor from afar but I mean she was the person trying to help everybody lived best lives for me I like okay I'm a mess to let's figure this out together not liked show it simply wasn't on TV those conversations had stop somewhere it's true like ellen coming out during that time I can't backwards and we've gone way forward five this week we're going to change things up because of course we're joined by I didn't have the reverence for it that I do now you know I don't Miss my show but I'm so grateful I had that platform especially at a time pre twitter and pre social media you're that was I mean that was that was revelatory I mean it was just it was just massive and so think about how much things have changed in that time we've gone times really an appropriate audience that was like back in New York when the show is in Taytay knows a year long waiting list to get tickets it was just like the thing to do and it was just my life so judgmental I was so fear film now I go to burning man I have like purple and my hair I mean I'm just like I definitely like going backwards in ways and I'm having a lot of fun but I think there's a lot about the nineties though that you look back on and cringe because as society we were just not as you and why they had such a special on them yeah okay well so the last thing I did on TV that I really loved was I was on my favorite TV series and when I was on the twenty four so there you go for the huge gap now is I feel more youthful now than even when my twenties and thirties and I was doing my show grow up which I want to talk now and you how old are you then thirty six where there's a huge age difference that's like a generational difference if you when you were it's cool I chose the Raven they got let me pick whoever I wanted to be in that really resonated with me because of my story and just losing my love and coming out of that darkness is just again it was like something that was really Cathartic for me so that was really surprisingly very fun and I can't believe how people are still talking about that show on that and okay so synonymous with New York but like so many people that day who in New York clearly it's going to massively make you TV moments. I did a TV show called baby cakes it was a movie that people loved in the nineties or it actually was eighty-nine but it came out yes that's another TV moment what else the rice for sort of the older group of millennials was rookie like that really guided our life because we very much in touch with the themes on that show yes and he was an amazing dancers that's three that's three Oh god I was about my boss singer singer was amazing it was really fun Netflix mental health it's actually mental health I really recommend you watch it. I think it's on Netflix. It's crazy ex girlfriend Rachel bloom is a genius on par in my opinion too I picked agent who's on everything from Stein in huge movies toaster on television show so I want to know what are the biggest and most memorable special TV moments and like my friend Tricia and so there was all these people like Mary Lou Retton was on and I don't know I don't know her and then like all these famous but I don't know them John Waters goes it but then you have a life changing moment as so many people do on September eleven two thousand and one of course you filmed you'll show in you really thinking you're going to die I mean I really thought I thought it was the end of the world and I had a moment of like a real moment of clarity where I said if I lived through this day I'm is there one moment that stands out I had babies they had surprised baby shower for me which was really funny because we had John Waters came on and my actual doing X Y and Z and leaving New York leaving my job and leaving my husband I mean it was like Mary clear and it took a while to make all of those things happen but I ended up walking represented but I really wanted to find what I was truly passionate about and it really was about birth and options you knowing your options having informed consent what else my talk show I guess it has to be would you say is your favorite moment from the rookie night show it's impossible to say because I did like twenty two hundred hours of television is an accident so we went to the roof are building I went with my four year old and my then husband and ensuing you know we're just GonNa see this small plane on fire and so my husband was taking pictures of the my second son in my home a water birth two months prior so I was a new mom is lactating and I was watching it on TV and the first plane they said it was a small plane experience to see what my body could do you know I mean pregnancy in itself it's like to see the miracle of life to feel life inside of you is one of those those feelings that I'll never forget but Bertha my own terms in my home space with a midwife with Dula was was beat life-changing beyond just becoming a mom I think that's one of the reasons why out life is it true that you actually witnessed the second plane going to yeah I did I lived in the West village and I just had second he didn't win the second the winner was this guy named Jr Martinez and he was like a war hero burn victim there was no way I was GonNa win answer with the stars that was a huge compliment derrick hall I was with Derek Cough I came in third and that was to become a dancer and Barbara Codex you know you can make a difference I love my show and my show was an amazing platform and we did a lot of great things for people like you and for you know a lot of people that felt like they were the underdog not being seen or heard maybe Waller Bridge phoebe Waller Bridge dying to go out with her one night here in London come on manifesting that okay what else the full view and I saw the other plane coming down the Hudson and it was just one of those like you see it it's like slow motion what that guy doing what's that guy doing and then screaming bloody murder who is really the first time that you feel I guess probably comfortable with your body after you you know it definitely helps to heal from a lot of from the show I didn't quit my show because I would have been sued but I ended my call I didn't renew my contract and may made the move to La and that's when I started soul searching about what I wanted to do next oh I love it great choices what what a TV career maybe the it's factor celebrity we'll get added to the list navy Latin hairspray so again it's like trauma ended up turning it into a gift and turn it into a positive obviously I wish that never happened to me but it was part of my stories you know issues that women face with body dismore fiene just hating you know constantly beating ourselves up I was a sexual survivor as a child so that it was a very healing the show was such a success because you were wise honest about these things that you had gone through in life but I guess it was really on the annual book which I think came out and those kinds of things and so went onto make Docu my first documentary and that committee was incredibly powerful wasn't it because you spoke about the fact that when you give birth like who are these people like he's he's like what you know it was just one of those things I don't know I liked doing shows that were topics that resonated with me that I could relate to around two thousand thirteen two thousand eighteen when you really spoke about the true troll of what you went through as a child in terms of the sex assault and the fact that your parents anyway it was like everything looked rosy and perfect on the outside and you know there's so much more that wasn't being discussed going on the inside but yeah it's funny because that experience of being taken co crazy ex girlfriend so I did a cameo and I sang with Amber Riley we played little dreamgirls have you ever watched the show the best the best show rush this secret it isn't it isn't such a big deal and that was pretty healing I think now you talk about your white and that was the other area actually where I advantage of his little girl is what caused me to turn to food which is what caused me to be overweight and obese which caused me to get the biggest break of my life which is Tracy this were aware of it and you never really talked about it and I was just wondering if they were aware ones I told them you know it was going on until I told them right I just think it absolutely doesn't hurt yeah I think I've had life experience where I can definitely have empathy for people from different they've gone through it and one thing that I found that when I did talk in two hundred pounds when I gave birth to my first child I don't remember looking at the ratings and checking like where I stood on the scale but my weight fluctuates part of my journey it's part of you know made me so strong and you know it's just it's all part of it you know do you think what has made you such a great communicator as well Komo in Seattle Wa Small Channel Small Channel for a very short time but I learned the value soon half years ago I have been through it like I have been through like the absolute depths of despair and so I really seize this opportunity I wanted to feel good eighteen four oprah's show would directly connected to her weights they win she was very overweight the ratings would go up and when she lost a lot of somewhere I don't look my age I haven't had anything done to my face has no nothing nothing nothing six years ago once I people of such a high profile to talk about the emotional reasons behind y you might end up overweight ship with this amazing man I feel very in touch with my body I feel very liberated and my body works I'm basically out of like I don't have any pain and it was one of those you know is this was in the late seventies and it wasn't talked about like you know just put me push everything under the rug which is the way my parents dealt with most things growing up you know it's like I lost about twenty pounds from when I shot x-factor July because I saw myself and I was like Oh my God like I lost my husband my second husband passed away Oh my God you did your homework but that was on a movie set in Halifax Nova Scotia when I got really obsessive about weight loss and I was down to one hundred twenty pounds which I don't know what it is for you guys but one hundred twenty seven engaged with you because I was obese as a teenager that I lost a huge amount of my body weight and again it was you and Oprah that really were the about my experience in my early twenties I happened to so many more people you know at the time I felt like it only happened to me I felt like it was interesting once you unleash soup poodle rescue she's one hundred percent awesome and she doesn't shed she doesn't Bark and she's portable and we became doc gates for people to actually open up and acknowledge that sometimes you might put on a lot of white for something that isn't just about eighteen and with with oprah but I don't know if it was the same thing with USA town because I mentioned you looked at the stuff but there was always this discussion in the ninety s that the my skin and I was ready to shed that extra when you are looking absolutely incredible but I know for me I always say to people look at this is the battle of my life never ever going to be over so I mean again it was just me sharing what I was going through wasn't you know a concerted effort to teach people the role model I never really looked at myself are and she's just like medicine for everybody and I'm really grateful to have been able to bring her here with me 'cause two months we could not never been apart for two months and it's incredible you don't need to do and like I don't have any real wrinkles yet right and you wear radio I'm wearing my cup from two nights ago because that way I don't look at myself that way that right now I think I'm just like a work in progress trying to be my best self and we have to say Mama here today yeah well you look good to me think it's healthy thank you so much thank you so much but it is hard and I think that was definitely something where again you open the flood elsa food because again that sounds obvious now but actually in the nineties they wasn't really an understanding about emotionally for example I agree actor flaw but it's a really debilitating destructive illness that when you know it and he struggled with depression and chronic pain and yet he was my favorite I think the Russians would go down to do you ever experienced the same thing I didn't pay attention to it I mean my weight would fluctuate because I had two pregnancies during my show I got as big as person I've ever known I mean honestly he was so gifted they say that you know genius and madness go hand in hand and I was never happier than when I was with him such a loss I've gotten so many gifts out of it you know and the new relationship that now you know it's like he's amazing and he's like the healthy version of Christian he's really someone who truly loves himself Christian is gifted and special and you know what he brought to my life he he was very self loathing and didn't love himself legras super small like my it's ridiculous I should never ever I was not healthy but I had to be hospitalized and I had an IV drip all I care about Lisa's so bad even talking about besties and then when my husband took his life and succumbed to mental illness in February two thousand seventeen she legally became my therapy dogs so she was with me everywhere in and it's just a tragedy that I don't think I'll ever fully recover from but again this traumatic experience in this beautiful love affair that turned into I'm GonNa go it's not my plan is only a conscious effort but I think that is like the secret is like having a fuller fuller face but when you go the other way you go the other way there because I remember and I think you've done for it's just an ongoing battle with sometimes you're gonNA lose all the time you're gonNA conquer and I am now like I said I'm fifty one years old I'm in a beautiful relation oh I know nothing I have some fake eyelashes fake hair that's it but a rare in California yeah but to look who's you it I'm not opposed to it but I don't was he told me when we first met the he'd been diagnosed bipolar and I assumed it was like a trait like me being a control freak I'm a crazy virgo completely you know like that's what I equate it was like a and so I'm with a man Jeff now who's really like a gift you know off the Christians death you also plunged quite understand and he was my favorite I mean like if I go there I could really get teary eyed but He was literally the best thing that ever happened to me in London when he passed I was doing a show I was guest judging a show called let it shine so it was a live show so excited to do the show yes it's about balanced it's always the key clothes that don't have an elastic I refuse to weigh myself now on clothes it's really nice to be back in London after going through such a traumatic experience and to be have these new memories these new experiences and I do feel that he's with me but I was wanting to be on the scale and how what I weighed but now I'm pretty much healthy weight now I'd like you know I can fit into my my old clothes and I feel the stars and eleven to live and the times when you wouldn't actually had to be an IV drip reset. I can't remember Havana helped me somehow I got I had to cancel my appearance on loose women I mean it was like all these things that happened and I got home and you have to deal with a coroner new deal when I drive my car she sits on my lap and it's like this calming presence and it's palpable I mean everyone who's in her presence including this crew there in there on the ground off to begin with and I have two children that are not his biologically but he was with them for six and a half years you know through their teenage years yeah it's just I mean it's been my mic or you know bipolar disorder is is one of those really complicated how confusing illnesses that I didn't really know I had no experience I didn't know what it cross to bear my you know just just coming to terms with like this as part of my story and this is you know I believe he he spared me he didn't leave me you know this illness only my husband medication didn't work for him he was an path and it made him Zombie and he and he maybe he wasn't patient enough to try all the different medications but his sister and then the email that I saw it I knew he was gone in from reading the email I fell him leave and it was just I don't even know how I got home to La it's worse when they're not medicated near there are people many people who are functioning and able to find medication and care that gives them a healthy and happy life in the case of how I can you've been about the death of Christian who was your husband but of course you had divorced and you relationship rekindled we were always together ably into your own depression funny it wasn't for funny but it was interesting that didn't take place like the my lowest of low was like seven or eight months after because you would have had some type of PTSD as a result of light that because even just the trauma of being out of the country is big and pass because when he passed I had to go into like self-preservation run on a trajectory like making all these I mean I can't even like saying it out loud now what I had because Oh you do you have you have an share of like thank you so much I think the key is having a little extra weight on I think it makes you look younger just how difficult though is that sometimes medications for bipolar will work for a period and sometimes it for a period of many many years Athen you know he taught me so much about I'm such a better person having had him loved him and lost him you know and yeah it's just you see people who get through it but it's a crazy illness because it affects everything that fixed why you spend money to fix your sense of humor this he I mean with bipolar and has had two kids south so I know quite a lot about bipolar as a result and the and then I also nine it's a miracle of miracles on risk udalls she's my rescue therapy dogs so I I say I rescued Momma but then she rescued me what type of dog she's a she shortly did commit suicide but but suicide I learned and I'm constantly learning the death by suicide because of the St and his family and his wishes and a funeral arranged I mean it was so beyond I don't even remember how I did it all here to open up about her life genuinely Ricky Lake means so much me they're not many celebrities I've had on this podcast that I could say had more of a direct impact on and so Yeah it was just on this high and we were about to go to children firehouse you're about my van who's with me here now and I got the call can you she was she was it was quite America actually she was brought back to life and after about fifteen minutes and now has lived an incredible life in Christian had two episodes while we were together so we were together for six and a half years he used he had a bunch before he met but I didn't want me to know and so two thousand fourteen was the first so yeah we're I learned early on they were socially yeah that we're supposed to death so it's it's really out of their control cancer not his it's not their fault mma I guess it's not a it's not a selfish act people notice a selfish act it's actually a really courageous and selfless in the case of my husband was a selfless act the next something clicked so because I have people close to me and my own life have suffered from bipolar and actually one good friend of mine who act all these ideas and he's like you know doing yoga in the morning like all these I was like wow he's on fire and then it just keeps going higher and higher and higher to wear things he can fly the episode and I present because he always had depression so he always was in pain hard to motivate her to get out of bed so it was really like oh my gosh he wants to he scene powerful thing and I'm so glad it's coming to the way stand because you know it is the first musical that has ever tackled suicide and it sounds like next to normal did you ever see that you have spoken about Christian because I've read a lot of what you've said is that so often I think friends and family members of people who sometimes lose their life because of these mental health issues often feel shame themselves because they can be a lot of judgement from what to do and the second time I had to save myself it was just so it was so outrageous no of course because it's so difficult friends and family but one of the things I have loved about the oh I think that's so important I did everything I could and and I know in my heart that by sharing my story I'm helping other people because you know we we usually the people around them have done so much so much and just nothing will ever be enough and I love the way you talk about it because there's no shame attached pressing for all of us so I think we need to all you need to start loving each other getting rid of the judgment getting rid of the stigma and and with Christian I I know in my heart but I'm I'm a good storyteller the songs I want to sing songs resonate with me you know I wanted to see that on the mask singer and they couldn't clear it because light of the husbands the wives the brothers the sisters the MOMS and the DADS which if you have dealt with someone that has a mental illness like that you know I sharing our story I don't want him to have died in vain I would love to help others Bhai being honest engineers about because not many people do talk about support each other and all of us I mean look at the time that what we're going through in our lives right now is so traumatized you read the paper the news both in this country and in my country it is goal show again also about mental health because I think what's so interesting about Dave Hansen is it takes something that you would think would be so dark and I actually it's funny you say that 'cause that's one of the songs I sang on this show are now you will be found the world of social media and everything that young people have to go through but actually there is an overall message of hope but I went to see it in Broadway and they have to show that I don't know if that's the one they show but if it is in want me to me too and it was like must be spatially losing a husband or wife by suicide have you seen the musical of Anson have that like fear it was powerful really you know it's Cathartic it's like and that's my because I'm not the best singer in competition just see you know heads up people I can carry a tune the and and I just didn't see it coming in the crash in what goes up has to come down so then he becomes suicidal and then we put them in treatment so it was just like the I don't know how else to be I've been an open book my entire thirty plus career you know whether it's about my weight or it's about any sort of hardship I've had I've always been really transparent and so I don't know how else to you how do you stop that fifty years of age you know even with my new relationship you know my new guy is super private being also is about loss and suicide and so yeah US spreading the message. It's trying I'm trying I'm doing the best I can I mean it's it's they could they didn't know who is singing it because the secret so I was like when they asked me do this show I was like all I wanNA sing that song you know today where it was like a dream Yeah because I found that music is to help the planet and so he has this whole ethos behind his his business which is called one golden thread and it's beautiful and how did you meet how does where he likes about me. Blessed man is a city that has created for one week out of the year every year it's been going on for more than why it is that I discovered this place forty eight years old age it's the place where I can be completely free everyone can be whoever they choose to be and I really get to be that little girl again and it's magic it's a very special place and it took him a little while to see me that way but then I then I warm down and the burning man this is the music festival right Oh my God times crossword puzzle I guessed you remember on Ricky Lake Most memorable one was this Guy Reverend Fred Phelps in my first season he was the guy without loss to suicide and I just think to explore it and that way creatively so that's perfect song for you don't want to give it away but yeah this other song childhood singing Shirley Temple Las- the last thing that made you laugh oh my goodness my dog last Iraqi like what was your first job I did an episode of the TV series fame first time you felt famous when I was in answer in the near term on a couple of times and I was just in a real place of loving my life again and being a real true place of gratitude and I went to this gathering that my girlfriend had she called us all night worker who so powerful I mean it's about to come to the way Steve I'm going I'm going to go to the opening with my director

She has a two grammy is an Emmy Award also like several other awards like it's literally just to give you an idea. I watched this youtube video where it took you a combined twenty three minutes to accept all of the different awards and this one youtube video so. And basically our question for the week is. You know how can we support the theory community during the pandemic and beyond, and there's no one better literally in the world that we could talk to so welcome. Audra McDonald Jonathan. Thank you. It's such an honor to be with you. We're big fans of the show. My my nineteen year old daughter was flipping out that I was talking to you today so awesome seeing when you talk. My mouth just went right. So here's the thing. I Have I've been on I things. Honey I've never won something that I got nominated for and so I guess one question I just want to ask. It's like the first time you will you one because I think the first of the because we do need to get that Oscar which I feel like because you're in the new aretha movie honey I do feel like I smell one coming. I'm just I'm just. Thank you. Something, just washing my face with the idea of it. I just I've just put into the universe like just got to speak into existence, but regardless so the first time you were nominated and you're sitting. You're sitting in there if if you could just take back like. So you're sitting there and. You're like. Did you have that moment you're like? Oh, my Gosh! If I win. This like my life might change like this could like. What without lake well the no sitting at the Tony's. was like nine, hundred, ninety, four and I. Just the fact that I was there just was already mind blowing and the whole whole evening was just as. Out of body experience for me I just I was sort of I had floated up and was just sort of watching. It all happened from above. You know it just. It! None of it seemed real. and. It was really weird. Moment from when I think it was Tony Danza I. Think actually who opened. Is that right? It might have been, too I think. It was Tony Danza and he opened the thing to say who the the winner was, and as he opened it I had this weird moment I. Don't think I've ever said this day. Anybody where I went. Its name in there. He's going to say my name. It was this weird moment of like Gosh. It's my name, but I hadn't felt any of that at all until that moment, and then when he opened it I was like Oh. My Goddess, my name, and then I heard my name and I was like. This is crazy and then in that moment I realized Oh. Now I have to talk. I have to say something to all of these people that have meant everything to me my entire life. All these Broadway legends in this audience and I walked up. They're thinking. I can't talk I. Don't know what to say to them. I don't I. Don't know how to say thank you. I don't know my name right now. And I was shaking I was so nervous and. He handed me. The Tony and I turned around I was like what am I going to do? I don't want to pass out I don't want to. Seem like an idiot. I hadn't prepared a speech because I just didn't think it would happen. And as soon as I turned face this. The first face I see in the front row. Is Carol channing? And? She has this enormous Carol. CHANNING SMILE AND I grew up loving her like free to be you and me, you know housework and just do it all. I just loved her she her voice always reminded me of my grandmother. and. I looked at her face, and she was beaming, and it calmed me down. Though I basically just sort of looked at Carol channing the entire speech, because just like she's GonNa. Call me down and she looks it's just so such warmth than enjoy radiating from her face. And I'm going to be okay. I just felt so comforted by her. In that moment, it was the craziest thing and then come to find out years later that she. That she's. The she's. She's black that they're. Did you know that? That Carol channing. That her I don't know if it was her father. There's somebody in her family who was black to the point where her mother said. Don't have children because they might come out. They might look black because of our. You know our our our You know DNA and then it would be. People would know that you're not only. Never knew what I look back on the fact that I was so comforted by looking at Carol channing. I'm like well. Maybe I just saw. Black female in there somewhere so calm by it. But? Yeah, that was my first Tony Experience I. Like made me like really a Moshe. But you've won six hundred the most. You're the only actor to ever win a Tony for all four acting categories which I just like. That is so cool it's it's it's. It's if you ever get less nervous. This? No, no, no, no, no, no! Because everyone has been a shock because. All my life all I ever wanted to do was be on Broadway, but I just wanted to be on Broadway I didn't think especially as a black robe growing up in Fresno. California the dream was just to at least get there and be like in the ensemble of something I just never. I. My dreams were big, but they weren't. As big as they could have been as certainly not as big as I tell young kids to dream now as you know. The I'm going to grow up and I'm going to be a eight time Tony. Award winning actress I. Mean That's what I tell. My. You know the people that I sort of do masterclasses for now like just dream as big as you possibly can. But my dreams weren't that big. It was just to finally get to Broadway. Be In something so everything that's happened in my career. Since then has. Been Mind blowing to me. I don't it doesn't compute in a way that it's happened to me. It's something that happened to somebody named McDonald. As far as I'm concerned I'm still me. I'm still completely messy. I'm still completely unorganized. I still have never been able to get my hair to totally look right in the fifty years. I've been lot. Do you know what I mean it's nothing has changed as far as who I am. Jaguars. All that time, but like no. I'm sorry I've had to I. DIDN'T HAVE TO I've watched. Every I'm pretty sure I've watched every performance at that that exists of you on Youtube right now and doom. You'll have mastered this hair well. It's all. It's. Those three thank you, but just meaning I'm still I'm still very much me. Do you know what I mean so all the stuff that and also when you think about the fact that what you do, what I do for a living is just it's my passion. It's the only thing I've ever wanted to do and all ever want to continue to do is just to evolve as an artist. Do you know what I mean? I want to be better I'm still very critical of myself I. Want to be better tomorrow than I am. Today I WANNA. Learn more about my craft tomorrow than I have today. and I want to be better singer. Actress. Listener Mom, all of that avalanche in are trying to evolve and taking big risks, and you know sometimes falling flat on your face, but that's the whole point. You know above. Aleutian you gotTA. GotTa Learn? You've gotTA push yourself forward. So. You have to do it for that, and not because I want an a win an award. Because that's the you can only do your work. You can only do your best work. You can't vote for yourself for a Tony can't nate yourself a Tony you know. You, can't you? Have you really have nothing to do with any of it? You know all you can do is your work. So. That's where I put it all I. Just sort of put that that happened to someone over there, and that's amazing, but it doesn't. It doesn't compute for me. You know I I. I I feel that a little I always say like with in my career like I feel like I'm kind of in a constant state of shock. My goal was to just like live and like to be getting to do. All of this stuff is just like. Wow, this is so much more amazing and I feel like for me. Growing up I felt like you know getting away from my hometown, making it I felt like that was like impossible. Mamie because I felt like in some ways it was. I think in some ways that made me work so much harder like prove myself. Do think though that because you had to overcome. Because you came up in Fresno California and the like. When did you start? Would you get come on like this scene? And Broadway? And like when did you leave California and come to yeah I? I moved to New York. When I was eighteen to go to the juilliard school. I had gotten except in junior high school until the voice department. But I've been doing musical theater at our local dinner theater in Fresno California from the time I was nine. And that's what that's. How I got bit by the bug. That's how I knew that. This was what I wanted to do, but I didn't You Know I. I, I like to. I and Fresno's my hometown and I and I love it, but let's put it this way the the congressman for. Fresno County is Devin newness. Okay and he's been reelected. So that's that gives you an idea of the area that I come from. And while there are have been noon, yes. because. I was just GonNa. Ask, what was it like coming up in, Fresno? It's Fresno more like central California Central, completely central in the San Joaquin Valley. It's like you know the main city where all the the farm towns were around the. It's an agricultural center and. And power. I don't know I mean now. The lot of agriculture gets shipped in from other countries I mean I. Don't know if they still maintain the same kind of power that they used to have, but it's cute Jagger Cultural Center. And you know is because I. Don't think people realize this and that's something that's been more. Realize what a deeply racist part of the country! The Central California very much very much, and there are blue pockets in there are liberal people there and obviously I. was you know I? Might my great-grandfather. settled in Fresno California so the McDonald's had been there for a very long time but It's they're still. They're still deeply deeply. Read deeply races, people still in. In Fresno And area and who was your Audra McDonald. Who is your you? You looked up to Fresno like when you're a coup. Up to be well I, you know I come from a very musical family, and my, and because I had this incredible dinner theater that I could go in and perform be a part of their company and I went to performing high school and a performing arts junior high school I mean there are some wonderful things about Fresno. And I was lucky to have all. That knows all public education you know this is public schools. which are so vital and so important and so necessary to protect my goodness. We have to protect public education. Anyway so. Because I had. Good exposure I was able to look up to people like Lena, Horne, Diane Carol and. Gerald and and then you know I also love Patty lupone and Judy Garland Barbra streisand. Those were sort of all of my. You know people that I listen to on a regular basis and people that I wanted to be. My mom had the. Lena Horne The lady in her music. The Broadway show the cassette recording. Cassette, albums then. Not Young with your CDs are gone, but I remember when CDs can. Honey I was, I was all about I had a cassette. I had several cassette tape. With the boombox with the. Seven, so I have added experience. Early Ninety s culture. I I. Remember I remember Bryan Adams honey. I remember. That was that was what permeated the Midwest I. Don't know why that I don't know where that Bryan Adams reference came from it. Use It. Use it use it. So, but so you you move to New York when you're eighteen and who you get into one of the most well, probably the most prestigious music school of all time. And, then you just start. You. Just become you going to become like one of the most prolific performers, most iconic performers actor is like of like our of your literally, the one of those notable iconic of richest it's. I! Just get the chills on my legs when I talk to people about. It's just so cool and I and when you were mentioning at the beginning about you know I'm still myself, but I I won't take the dig at your own hair because it was. It's it's. It's been slates, but. I. Do, my own hair I felt I can pay people to do it, but I'm. Oh. But at least you know, but at least you know what works for I know my talents. But also like you know how to. You got to know how to direct. Yes, so yeah. Okay. Okay But. I'm just saying. When you were saying you know what I'm still myself I think I can. Even this twenty minutes I can just feel that from you and I also think. So! You're the wikipedia like awards. You've one procedure you but I also think you've been so the work that you've done an advocacy and bringing your passion to it to the side of of your that is helping people, and brings more people into the fold of our N. gives more people platform and gives more people a chance. I, think is really so beautiful, and that's part of the question. It's episode is. How can we support the the theater community? During this pandemic, you found Black Theatre United which is correct me if I'm wrong, but that's just like about a newer. She's like only a month. Old Yeah Yeah I. Don't know why give your organization a female Pronoun. Whatever so? But but prior to that you have, you're not new to advocacy. Now are not new to So I guess, but I guess to kind of dive into talking about your advocacy. If we could just set the stage of like, so it's twenty twenty year minding your own business. It's January. February march. You're working on what? What happens and how the stage for black theatre united well I was working on on the television. Show the good fight, which is the spinoff of? The Good Y. Your, senior and ski, yes, and and the the show takes place in a black law firm in Chicago and it's me until Roy Lindo Christine. Bransky NEON neon. Michael Boatman. Sarah, Steele cush jumbo, so It's predominantly black cast actually and so we were just you know we're filming in Brooklyn and. Getting more and more freaked out. By the days we're hearing. These numbers and everything's starting to happen here in New York, and then when they are, producers just walked in and said everybody go home. We gotta go home. And so. From that you know I had to go pick up my daughter from college. Bring her home and just the the quarantine and then. As has happened so many times before you know, we're all dealing with the Kobe quarantine than. Story after story after video after video starts to. Come out in the way that they've always been there. Black people always known these stories. You know with the with the Ahmad Aubrey. Brianna Taylor the The guy trying to just bird watching central park. You know and then. You know the George Floyd video happened. and. In the way that theater people I think have always you know we band together to you know, raise when the AIDS epidemic was happening. And the theater community was being decimated with all the incredible artists and pe- people. We lost during that epidemic. Broadway cares equity fights AIDS, was born. You know Hartson voices. You have all of these organizations that are raising money for AIDS awareness and research and. And advocacy to. To protect! the community so. That when the whole immigration issue is up was going on earlier, you know Broadway. People always come together to. Help and support, and there just seemed to be. As as all these videos, restarting the surface of people, being killed and brutalized by white people or police or The black community. It just felt eerily silent. From art theatrical community it just. It felt like we weren't hearing what we need to hear. And a lot of people with the black people within the community were feeling like. Where is everybody you know you? We are. We are here for you, we. Down I was up in Albany trying to talk to politicians to get. Marriage equality going years ago. You know marching for for for for gay rights and. Immigration issues what and that's that's just what you do, you help your fellow man, so it just seemed it just seemed eerily quiet, so a lot of us started to say where what's going on. And a friend of mine, the shots incredible theatrical, a Broadway Stars Tony. Winner and He just sort of wrote something saying. Where why are the why? We're not hearing from the theater community like the theater websites and whatnot? Why are they not speaking out right now? We haven't heard a thing. And I texting with the shots and we were talking about it. And Black people within the community. We're starting to do things within you know with themselves, and and there was A. Probably Advocacy Coalition. which is a wonderful Advocacy coalition of that started by credible black young actors in the community that started four years ago. During the time of Eric Garner's killing and That whole time and they've been doing incredible work. Survey were starting to galvanize again and other black communities where we weren't hearing from the theatrical community as a whole and Leshan tonight. We're talking about that and we said what can we do, so? We started to gather together. Some of our friends in the business people been in the business thirty. Forty years. Brian Stokes, Mitchell and Foolish Rashad and Michael macelroy Vanessa Williams. Louis White People like that and We just started at billy porter. I've known billy since nineteen eighty nine, actually as well. Yeah, yeah, amazed. I've known him since First Wives Club. Ninety four. I what I was first introduced, and then keep after that he's always been. He's billy. Saying we're discovering billy porn I'm like billy border has been billy. Since. I was seven. Yeah. But, but also at actually leads me into into this in talking about you know with the eerily quietness around you know because I think I have some figure skater friends that with that kind of doing some anti are doing work in the antiracism space and figure skating I. Think it's important. That we, whatever space were in like? That's a good face for us to advocate within because. We were absolutely. There's a loss way you have more. Yeah. You have more of a platform. And so we brought, we came together and said what can we do with the other? Black organizations coming together. Is there any way we can? Do, anything, to sort of elevate an amplify, and we decided that we wanted to focus first of all a lot of us for so much of our careers, and a lot of us still have always been one one of a few or the only one in the room, and so like you know, it's hard to bring everybody together when we all been separated in that way kind of you think about it in terms of even slavery to how families were separated, and so it's like you know what we need to. Bring everybody together and just start to sort of build a coalition and see what we can get done, and so that's how we came to be. And we decided we wanted to focus on the macro as well as the micro, and the macro is the fact that our entire houses on fire, and there's the pandemic of the of the covid nineteen pandemic, but there is also the pandemic assists systemic racism and black people, being brutalized and murdered by the police. That's an issue that is also a pandemic one in a thousand. Black men can be expected to be shot at or killed by the police that those. That's how bad the statistics are. And so we decided that we wanted to focus on the fact that our entire house was on fire, and then the fact that within that the theatrical community you know absolutely. Racism which needs to be radically did so we came together to. Do that you know. We a lot of the things that we're focusing on like. Our first townhall was with Cheryl an iphone. Who is the president of the N. double? ACP legal defense. Fund and that was. To bring not only awareness to obviously that organization, which everybody knows about, but more to bring awareness to the context of the history of where we are in this moment, and what we can do with the tools that we have in our hands, to start to help you know with the civil rights issues that face. Black people today, and that's voter suppression. That's police brutality. That's making sure that we are counted in the census that is dealing with the way things are being districted. and. What's happening within local elections? Who who are you voting for to be the sheriff for the judges in your town? It all starts on a local level, and so we have been. Teaming up with. People like a people a fair count, the fair count- initiative, which is run by Stacey Abrams, the fair fight. Their, organizations to work on voter suppression, and making sure that people black and Brown people are so underrepresented in the sense of making sure that we with black theatre united wanted to do it. We could to sort of like Hel. Help elevate those causes as well for people that like. I don't know about the theater world or like. Let's just say that there's like let's say that someone who's listening to this like with their fucking aunt Karen, and so they listen to this an aunt Kansas well when this autumn McDonald's says that Democrats Ism within a theater like how like? How does all of this? How does this systemic racism show? It's head in theater world well in in things like you know the. If you WANNA, look at. The Union that does the building and the carpenter and whatnot the unionist sort of the the engineers and All of that and yeah all of that. That's a union that I don't even know that I should find out the actual percentage of people that are of color in that union, but it's very low. As I know in the years that I've been working on Broadway, which is over twenty years I can only name in my mind. Three stage managers that have been black there in the in the hair union in the Wardrobe Union in the costume design in. Directors that broadcast L. I mean people that actually do the casting. I've never met a black casting director I've never met one. In publicity, and then in terms of producers. Just having money doesn't mean you get to produce a show. There are people like you know like Oprah. Winfrey and Berry Gordy who have produced shows on Broadway, and they have you know just as much money as a lot of these Broadway producers, but they needed to have other CO producers. Just so their shows could get produced on Broadway. Now. What does that get produced? Because somebody's I, think people say get produced, but like a lot of people. This is actually included what all goes into like when you say getting A. Produce getting a theater because you know there are only so many people who owned the theaters. And those are very powerful. Organization's of people who own the theaters is a very specific league and even though. May Be plenty of money to back a show or whatnot. these people still needed to have sort of a co producer that gave them like enough white credit in a way. Yeah, and that's where you could. I feel like that's really where I was kind of out. Not really knowing obviously I don't know very much, but like I was thinking like theatre owners like winded. Those families amass that much money like you're. I can't even who can even afford a damn condo and brought in New York City's. Renting out goes way back. These are this. Right So, if you have the money to own a four story like six thousand seat, or four thousand seat, or nine hundred seat, any sort of like sizable real estate in in Manhattan, you have to have money and I'm guessing that most of those owners are not super new new to that sort of power. Now it's a very small small small group of people who have been in power for a very very long families. Organizations have been in power for a very very long time.

So welcome back to getting curious Jonathan Mendez so. I think a lot of us have seen like behind the music, or we've seen like things or we kind of like you know in the Salon. You would assume like there's a front desk person in the front desk. Person has a relationship with certain stylists, and maybe for person is like friends with the owner, and so there's like politics right like in every industry. There's like politics, so there's owner of a of a theater. And then they're like a board, or is there like or does anyone have to overseas? Who owns a theater like where transparency around? Like inner workings of this well there are. There's a League of these producers, but. I wouldn't say that there is a ton of transparency. They you know they. They are a league and they. They don't have to be transparent because it's. They're all privately owned entities you know. so I think I think. It would be who've them. As well as you know e book at even regional theaters in the way, they're running the boards. That are you know? Make up the way the regional theatres Ron in that you know there's usually an executive producer and then artistic. Artistic Director Whatnot. Everybody needs to take a look at their own. Their own their own house. For lack of a better term. And This is an uncomfortable time for people. People don't want to sit in it and sit in the realization that. May have been contributing to a part of this problem or just. Not The order the privilege has allowed them to not even have to look at this problem, because it hasn't affected them in any way and so sherline Eiffel. Talked about this. Get your get your house in order. You GotTa Get Your House. In order and there are. There are lots of organizations. And coalitions that have come together within the black community and the in a bypass community that are you know there? Even one organization within the black community that has already sort of theatrical community that has sort of issued like twenty nine page list of demands, and You know like. Many many roads to the same destination here in that you know you need a multi pronged approach but there are a lot of things that that need to be done and also just to make. Theater and they and in creation of theater. As a safer! Psychological space to think for people, of color which a lot of times it. Canning cannot be you know at a lot of times there's not. And there are a lot of people who talk about the trauma that they've had. With the in being in specific shows or the way they've been treated or passed over or trotted out just to be the face of diversity, and then ignored, you know. So. It's a it's A. It's a lot to break down. It's a lot to break down the and the. Is there a silver lining? Is the silver lining perhaps that we are now in this sort of? Pause because theater can't happen right now. During this the Kobe pandemic so does it mean that there is time to sort of deliberately and meticulously put theater back together in a way that is more equitable, more diverse, and we're not just talk like I said talking on stage like all these things we just mentioned. These are all behind the scenes people who are. Telling the stories of creative people in the room. People who want to be interns a lot of time. You have these young kids who want to be interns, but can't afford to not have a salary and work in New York City so do we need to institute for? You need to broaden your search institute ways to maybe create more scholarships so that other people can be more eligible for these interns, these internships and then study at the you know at the right hand side. I sounds very religious. Study next to or work next to? Someone like a great Broadway director, great lighting director, a great sound designer, what and so that they can, then so then we're opening up the pipeline you know so that more of that a talent that black talented or by talent can sort of funnel through, and then be a part of this industry, which a lot of times you know, because of the systemic racism within our country and the way this this whole country has been built. Those those. Avenues! Are Cut off you. You can't follow that avenue for a lot of people to the theater because it's got off, I mean it's it could start back with public education, public education, being an and the money's going into public education in public schools being. In certain communities take it away or put into charter schools, or whatever, and so there's no arts in in those could be in those public schools. There's no. There's no community programs nothing like that and I mean you. We all know the story it just just you know just becomes a domino effect. Though, there's there's a lot to be done but the I think the silver lining again if you can find one, is that we? We have the time now. The had the urgency, but we have the time because so. Many of us are not working right now, so he can really focus on how we WANNA. Be a part of pudding theater together in a way that is More equitable. More equal more diverse. Yeah? I mean. I think you know one thing that whatever our our guest says I'm Begnaud Keith. He's written about his lake. White people today didn't like choose to because I think a Lotta Times why people get so like well. I didn't do that and I didn't whatever, but it's like why people now didn't wake up and choose to make the system the way that it is but white people have benefited. As it as it is. And I think a lot of people. Just myself included like I just didn't know and I I would have never been able to connect some of these dots about the way that systemic racism has. We've woven itself into the history of feeder, amd performing arts. Even just reading this thing yesterday that there's some a lot of things. Go back to in history to. Like the Peanut Gallery, for instance like that was like Dad has racist connotations that people just use that so. Casually, but see like I knew at the peanut gallery is because my family a beast talk about the fact that they had to sit i. mean that's the thing i. mean. These are things that like we know we know about. But he you know why people say well. I didn't know well. Your privileges allowed you to not know that ended up itself I mean so. It's not saying you are an inherently racist person does it's not even that and it's it's just you have benefited from a society that has been built. inherently racist, and so awareness is a wonderful thing right now, look. In the way that you know I I I'm not gay but I. Believe in in in the rights and and I've always advocated for lgbtq people because they they're human beings. They deserve the exact same rights at all of us in the same way that people that a lot of people that marched with. Black people during the civil rights movement of the. Fifties sixties the thirties, forties, fifties and sixties. The you have to be allies to each other, and there's a lot I didn't know about the discrimination. against. LGBTQ I. People I learned about because It's important, so this is a time of awareness. So this is the time of awareness I. had another reason I think we created black theatre, united, and so many friends so many white friends, texting me and saying. Are you okay I'm so sorry I just didn't know. And and after a while, it just got exhausting, and I understand that everybody's reaching out and wanting to do the right thing and well intended, so it's like okay. How do we? How do I? Mean a lot of people I'm saying okay. You need to do the work yourself. You need to educate yourself on what's going on and then yeah, open your eyes. Everybody can become more aware, and then we can gather together to get some. Get some shit done here, but. There I. It was exhausting because I. There's a part of me that was. It was hard to keep saying my friends. Yes, you didn't know because you didn't. You didn't have to know and there's a privilege in that. You didn't know and. It's a bubble that sort of. You could live in because that's the way the society has been instructed, but it's. For people like. Like I always like when it comes to the militarization of the police force like the the the brutalization of black and Brown people, the hands of the police I knew how fucked up. That wasn't been like talking about it, and like the that was like the curdle that I always use. My Dad will unlike HIV social safety net as it relates to me to be like this is why you need to understand why. Racism is like President Place. For me. I never realized that it like it's science. It's in theater. It's it's literally in every single. It's not like there was some impenetrable border around the arts or around like sciences or educate anything that made it. Carter's pervasive of the country. The country was literally built on it. It was built literally built. The wealth that was accumulated in the South could not have been accumulated without slave labor it was. It's built into the country. Let's literally the foundation. Yes, country and that's. Because I. I personally think that like we won't ever move forward. Without I didn't realize we were going to be new reparations, but Let's. I don't think the country will heal without that, and it's interesting because growing up hearing the term reparations like being small kid in the midwest like just growing up in what I now know is like a super. Racist Propaganda Philip Place at midnight and understand executive board and I like preparations. That's like, but no like that's what happens in a relationship. If ever relationship has been fundamentally like betrayed on of trust, you have to like come to. The table won't be like this was never dealt with this. You know this huge disruption that happened in the relationship, and unless you heal that disruption, you can't grow past it. Never been any sort of coming to the table to like actually he'll. What is arguably one of the biggest disruptions in the end? What we know as human history astronaut? President says like they're asked me like a willful circumventing of what we know about racial right injustice in order for things to continue to function as they have right. Yeah and they're just. Yeah, it's important. There are soup in there are interesting They're interesting models for it. There are ways that that they're ways that reparations. can look and there there are people saying it'll never happen, but I think I think there are ways to to approach it. There's a model in. Chicago TV show even did an episode about it. with a very very racist and fees, a police chief, or what who was responsible for? So much brutality victims, and the families of the victims were paid, and then courses were taught in a middle school and I think elementary school about the history of what happened so that that would never happen again, but that's that's very specific model already. In place, and they can look you know reparations, you know we talk about you know divesting from the police and investing in communities and I mean. There are a lot of ways That can. Happen and I think just dismissing it sleight of hand saying there's no that reparations can hand. I think I think that's I think that's wrong and I think that's wrong. Headed and I think it is going to have to be a part of the. Conversation going forward and it's going to have to happen in some way in my stand up comedy world I. Call that like a hard left when I like. That I didn't realize we were going to better. That was such a welcome left and I love that so y'all if you just take a quick break when you get some water. If you need to pull the car over, you can go to the gas station. Honey make sure to put on your mask. We'll be right back with more Audra. McDonald after that. It's your mask gone. Put that fucking Mascot Hey. What's up, listeners? This is Jackie's Neil from culture kings, and I just wanted to let you know about project that I am curated for ear will presents called black voices Friday each week. I am going to present to you. A different podcast hosted by some amazing black voices and. That, you may not have heard about before. This is my chance to amplify the voices in your chance to support them, so join me every Friday on air will presents to expand your ears and get to know some amazing black voices. Welcome back to getting curious Jonathan Vanessa Audra McDonald. Think so so right now because you know you were talking about the founding or we talking about the founding of of black theatre united, and you know it's like the house is on fire as far as like the state of the country, but then there's also this racism within. The theater world, and so I guess my question is is. Fingers fucking cross like we get a vaccine. And Peters do open someday. Who's doing it right? Who who do you think is doing it right well? I think that's what a lot of the transparency is about, and that's one of the things I think people are wanting to lay bears. You know. What what? How is your organization? What who makes up your organization, do you? Are you truly representative of of you know this country? How many bipolar people do you have in your in your organization? How many are in the hair department, or is this a story? It mean sometimes it can be something as you know as the type story that's being told on the stage and what I do know about Gen Z.. Is and what they are, and what corporate America is starting to learn in a very specific and. In real time way is that Gen Z. wants to know where their dollars are going. And they wanted and they and they are quick I mean my nineteen year old is is quick. She's like mom. You're not supposed to be shopping this week. This is blackout. Don't don't shop this week or or or This particular. This particular corporation donated this much money to you know this very very racist. Yeah, exactly five or whatever this very very racist man, or this very very racist, politician, or such and such so stop. I, so don't put your money there. Gen Z., and Gen Z I mean I understand. There's a whole rabid debate around canceled culture, but. I do believe that if Like an informed consumer is a powerful consumer you know and I think corporations are starting to realize that and I. Don't think that the wants to be left behind with that. You know they don't because if you if you know. People find out that you know there's A. You know a racist, such and such or whatever, either in the company, or or in the way that the story is being told that's not sensitive or that. This theater company doesn't have any black people on their staff anywhere or anything like that Gen Z. finds out about that and they're going to. They're going to spread the word i. mean just think about just think about what those kids were able to do with that trump rally in Oklahoma. The way that they were able to. Buy Up all those tickets and make that entire. Stadium empty now whether you agree with their tactics or not, they sent a very. Clear and powerful message you know they have reach they and that's and that. That I, mean they? They have reached. They have power. They are coordinated. And, so and this you know I think. He started out by some the K pop group right the. New All I'm saying is. There are forced to be reckoned with and they are. Awakening and they are recognizing their power, and with the power like sherline IFA, the tools and your hand with the power social media they get on social media and say everybody, or even, if it's like everybody, go, and those who can't go up and show up and and protests this show right here because of such and such or such and such and such The theater world is going to have to contend with that so Why wouldn't you want that in and of itself should be enough. Of reason because if it comes down to the Almighty dollar than Great. Why wouldn't you want to make your shows your institutions your? The creative staff, the all of that as as as diverse as should be, and the stories told that are truly representative and transforming the narrative and all that. Why wouldn't you WANNA do that? Do you see any response to that? Feedback I do far I. DO I mean we it's important to. You know Sherline I falls. Getting writing, you know whatever we're trying to do right now. Get it in writing, because it's a window. That's open right now and we want. To affect major change. before I mean because unsure for some people, it would be easier just like Oh, can't we all just get along? And eventually will? Everybody will calm down and we'll just go back to normal. You can't and we have to strike strike while the irons. Hot I do know that there are a lot of people who are interested in making change. Just how much change at that remains to be seen. You know but. And also, it's important to make sure that we don't. You know a lot of times people will just. Especially people in power just like wait out the anger and then Wade out until we're there over it and we're onto something else now. We're distracted by this over here this over here and then go about his business as usual, and then it's GonNa take another sort of horrifying video or horrific whatever? To come down the Pike and then people. Do something with this moment. Let this moment be watershed moment. Can people stay up with Black Theatre? United on like online on Yes to? Yes, we have a website black theater with an R. E., T. H. E. A. T. R. E.. UNITED DOT COM we have. More town halls coming down the pike There's a lot of stuff we're getting ready to announce that we're doing. And you can join to keep up to date as a member whether you identify as black within the the community, even if you're just aspiring artists, or you can join as an ally. So for me, I will tell you very quickly. when I was like nine I auditioned for the wizard of Oz and I really wanted to be the cowardly lion. And then I think I probably called the local community theater like eighty seven times an hour from like the. Dishes until money to see if I like may not I nine producer like I i. think I fully harassed them as like an eight year old. And then like I didn't even make the chorus 'cause I 'cause I call eighty seven times on the hour for three days, and so I was kind of very much traumatized from that rejection, and then light never then I was like I'm just going to be obsessed with Venus and Serena and Michelle Kwan and the magnificent seven. Gymnastics but Dan in my twenties you know being Mike Gorgeous, lgbtq Sal I'm I was like I need to learn more about theater. So I didn't really like come into really understanding how amazing theater wasn't really getting to learn more about the history of it, and the it's just all about the beauty that is until I was in my twenties, which is so sad and so there's I think there's I think there's probably other people. Unfortunately that are similar to me in that respect, and so for other people that are either just now coming onto or especially if there if there's people my age of young. Folks in their life young kids. Nieces nephews. Whatever you have a nineteen year old. You are a theater icon. How can people like people get bitten by the theatre bug? Especially now that the things are office there like is there is there video theater performances Let's see. Well I would introduce them to. Great movie musicals of the past and the present. I mean I would give it the top by Roy. Moore didn't prep me for that. Let me see a top five doing an order. Even if they were just like to get to go to like the myth musical movie, The universe pageant like a- like we're not even doing top ten. They definitely the competition. Gosh. And on for me personally Moulin Rouge will be there. That's I like what. The modern musical yeah! That's great i. mean you know the thing is? Disney in away has been doing that with the movie musicals that they've been doing all these years. You know I it's for me. It's hard right now because there is. There are racial issues with some of like you know even the top movie musicals. That I used to love that were we weren't represented, but they're still amazing movie musicals I mean. Cabin in the sky would say, but you know that's that's Lena Horne. That's way back. You Know Hamill people I'm sure kids are watching Hamilton. Controversy around the fact that it's it can be seen as glorifying these founding fathers who were slave, owners and. But at the same time it's a beautifully crafted musical and. And with brilliant performances, and and an incredible choreography, incredible singing, incredible movement incredible staging. That it would absolutely make you fall in love with the theater. I would say get as many sort of soundtracks of shows that are out there right now. I can go home soundtracks still down, so I mean I know. 'cause that's. Like! Les Mis. Horace line was one that was me. dreamgirls Miss Saigon. Yes, I, because I listen to that. Deutsche Song. Him I said I used to scream today driving through the streets of Barrick right if people could win, win a world where there are shows like the people that go see coupled with just listening to it because that's all you could can't get the film of it. What would your top by be like your top five of a mix of like? Just listen to now because like there's probably not a recording of it slash when things open. You gotta go see this one. Okay well ragtime. Say something that I've been, but I think that was a musical. That was very important then and feels in some ways more more. Relevant, now state of things we're enemy and I played a character who literally a black woman who is killed by police brutality. You know I'm in. It's dealing with the you know a country that is in total racial turmoil, which is where we are right now as well so that. But it's also an incredibly crafted beautiful musical. Oh my gosh. You were just wrecking me I. Mean I I'm a huge Stephen. SONDHEIM fan so sweeney. Todd is another one that I would say. Get an a recording of things that you could see once. We're back up and running. Well you know he Hamilton, but you don't have to. You don't have to go to a theater to see that anymore. Obviously, I know dear. Evan Hansen is really speaking to the children I. It's so hard because right now. It's hard to know what's actually going to be around. I guess like I'm sure like when you were like. Oh Oh's what those were. That caught me. Yeah, it was dreamgirls it was. A chorus line that I listened to over again. It was Amos behave, and that I listened to over and over again it was. A star is born with with Judy Garland that version. That's a movie musical that blew me away into that performance in and her history. That's another one that killed me and got me over over again. Evita was another one that you know just. I memorized every single word to and ended up playing that part when I was sixteen. That's another one that was The WIZ was another one that I would act out the entire show in my in my bedroom, and I use my walk in closet I. had this little tiny walk closet and use that as my backstage area and come out and have the record player playing. Do the parts then I'd go back into the closet and change into the next thing, and then come back out. Yeah, those were the ones that were. I mean really big for me. Really really big for me so. That's what hooked me. You know guys and dolls is another great great great musical once again. There's not necessarily all the representation that we want to see a lot of these musicals, but it was still a great musical so again it's it's A. It's an odd time for me to be answering these questions because. There's a whole other sort of light in which we look at them, and you look at your childhood new CEO okay, that moved me and it may be fall in love with a theater, but I also realized that there wasn't that much representation, except for things like dreamgirls and. Or and misbehave or the whiz things like that I wanted i. GotTa, ask you a few more things performed. Obviously you are. You're prolific. Threats which are also a prolific TV, actress honey. You're and movies, so one question that I wanted to ask you. How is it different for you? Preparing yourself to perform. In front of people like as far as on stage, versus like when it's cameras in your face, because I also got to see your horse portrayal of Billie holiday heading. Down yesterday we. Let. so good, but so, how does that feel different preparing for those roles and there's a camera in your face because I feel like it's different adrenaline well, it's different. It's a different muscle that you end up. Flexing when you actually get to the actual work of doing it, but the prep is all the same. You still got my not exactly with the character is. You Gotta learn everything you can about them. You gotta understand every single motivation for every every moment they have within the story that you're telling. And that requires great preparation, and so all of that is the exact same the differences when the cameras right in front of you. You know as opposed to being in the theater where you have to make sure that every emotion, every word all that is is hitting the back wall because you're trying to fill a space that can be have as little as four hundred people in it. Burke can have as many as five thousand people, or even more, so you've got to be able to fill, you gotta be able to take the stage and fill that space, so even the people sitting in the very very very very very very back row are still having the same sort of visceral experience as people in the front row. Who have a better you know? Are Closer to your face. You have to be able to get all that emotion back there. The camera is right in front of you, so there's a saying. I can remember who's a famous actor who said this, but you have to think very loudly when you're doing cameron so all the same emotion. The issues all of that or all still just as big, but it's being thought. In A. Very loud way, but not presented in a big way because the the cameras right there, so that's the different. That's the main difference you, so it's just a different set of muscles that you have to sort of flex. You know I trying to think of. I? I guess it's like if you were doing something, you know what it's like. It's like you're doing your floor routine I'm trying to do gymnastics sort of. Doing a floor routine, and then you're doing some of those same tricks on a balance beam. So Balance Beam has to be much more specific, and you just got like. You have to hit your mark here and if you go too far like if you hit the wrong marquis, fall off the bounce where you go out of frame. So it's that sort of specificity that happens on in film and television where the cameras right. In front of you as opposed to on the floor where you still doing the same movements and all that we're not a of the same movements, but you've got the space. You gotTA fill it. You got to I. Mean it's different thing I mean I. think that's how I would I I just golic. Look like less than about my life. Okay so. You've reformed all over the world I. Mean You've done like? We. Played in like every gorgeous theater known to humankind. This is another thing I didn't prepare you for accidentally. What was like your favorite wine? Like what's like the one that you think about like Oh Gosh I can't believe we're just like not traveling on planes right now. I just like like that performance like that. Well you know, I can think of one I did. I did it performance in Madrid. I was so nervous because I was my first time performing in Spain my first time performing. At all there and I was, and it was just me. It's not like I was playing apart I was just me doing an automatic Donald. Concert I thought. Do I have any fans in Spain is anybody in a know who I am as a show up at this concert? So I tried to learn as much Spanish as I could just sort of say hello at the beginning, and my concerts are very loosey Goosey. I Chat I. I never know what I'm. GonNa. Say just get out there and I started talking and then I. Sing my songs because I want people to know who I am the Oh by the time it's over, so if I'm very scripted very prepared, it's not me and it doesn't feel right, and and that's what you want for a concert for me anyway so i. I prepared a little bit in Spanish and then at one point, I said I gotta go into English, and I'm so sorry. I just don't know enough Spanish to continue. So I. Hope you'll forgive me as I start to speak English. This audience was still to date one of the best audiences I've ever had. They were so loving. A lot of them knew all of my songs and we're singing along with me even though I. Didn't speak English, the ones that did were like helping to shout out translations for me, and then like they packed the stage door afterwards it took me like an hour and a half to get out of there because they were all they were like. It was I've never felt more welcomed and loved, and and so I was not expecting it at all I was, and they were musical theater fans I was so moved. And I love spayed anyways a beautiful beautiful country. Oh my gosh, the food, so you talk about places that I. Go back to right now. Spain is at the top of my list last year. Rapid questions. Okay, so this first the last question is, has there ever been a time and you don't have to say who because don't WanNa. Put you in like any sort of spot. You just because I love you and I think this'll be a really validating. Daydream his our time where you're up for a Tony or a grammy or name against someone who? was. Like. Stuck in like, said something about just someone you just did not stocking, because we all have those people that we just you know for whatever reason that did not. A couple I do I do. It was time where obviously I have not one so I would experience, and maybe that's why I'm asking the question, but and obviously but. It, could be like forty seven thousand. Nightmare so it's not like. You're really selling anyone an investment. His time we're like you one and there was just, and this is a yes or no question where you fucking wine and someone who you could not stand like you beat them, yes or no. I will put it this way. There was a time when I. When I. Did Start to have some Broadway success. That I ran into someone at an event. This somewhat has now passed away, so it doesn't matter, but there was someone who was very judgmental and not supportive in just downright mean to me in my days at school. and. He was there to see this concert of this very amazing, very famous Broadway singer. And I was there to to see this person perform, and this person had become a very good friend of mine, and at the time when I was at juilliard I was not even allowed to sing for her in a masterclass. Oh, it doesn't matter. It's Barbara Cook. They're both the people I'm going to talk. Both barbeque was and she was and I was at my my. My husband at the time I have a new husband now was playing in her band, and she and our wonderful friends and perform together. And this. Teacher who had been so mean to me at school and just so dismissive? You know like saying things like well. You know your jury was crap. And I guess you all you want to do with it as Broadway anyway, so fine him just like just really awful to me and I ran into him. Backstage and he was coming to sort of heap. Praise on Barbara. Cook and I was just like Oh hello Mr, such and such. How Nice to see you! And he was like well. Being certainly worked out for you, didn't they? Remember I told you I was like yeah. I remember everything you said to me. That's the only mercy right there, too. Oh, yeah, she was there. She doesn't really she was sort of like. Oh. You know each other I'm like Oh. Yes, I, know you. And I was able I mean that's like. I mean as far as being nominated against other people, I that I I don't think about, but that was the one time where I was like. Yeah, look where I am and look how much you pissed on it as I was trying to get. Stuck and Julia Roberts like big mistake. I can't help it I like I. Love That bigness mistake. So then my final question is. So. United is obviously. That's a place where we can follow stay. In touch with but I think in in this time that we've had in quiet. And outside of if you knew and follow Audra McDonald honey, but if any other people in that are. In the theater space especially, when like is there in the hair space and the set space and the casting space in? There other like kind of players in the space where it's like now that people know and there's other change makers are innovators. You've been particularly like Ooh. That's cool like. I'm learning like. Like for other people that WANNA see more change in able to like. Keep the promise of the transparency like you'd mentioned at one company that did like the twenty nine written. That was just an organization, a bypass organization of people who came together and wrote a letter. About. What they felt about white American theater, and then and then. came out with a list of demands just recently I mean every like I said there everybody's. Coming to it in their own way and And doing what they can to affect change in their own way, and that was a very very specific list of demands that they came out with There's also another group probably advocacy coalition which I spoken to, and they're. They're A. An organization with young young people that spearheading that that are working to bring about sort of racial change within the community as well. You know I think. I think the best thing for people to do. You know that are fans of a the Broadway community and want to be like allies to. Want to be allies is to. Literally start to educate yourself. I think that's that's the best thing I I mean. There are books you can read about it there. You know so you WanNa, talk about race or white fragility or there are there are books out there or just read about some of the history. Even if you wanted to read about the history of black theatre and how it came about, you could even do that. I mean just start to educate yourself and then. Be informed. Be informed. I think that's that's the most important thing I could say right now. I. Guess to just like as a follow up question. It's like. Like is there like a like Alexander Cossio Cortez of the theater twitter community? That's like. This this is the private account of the theater owner who said he'd. and. Back. Investigative journalist like it's like the people that did the research, but now they're like I wanNA. Fuck and be like I'll never come to your theater again if you don't whatever like like anybody like that on twitter and the theater community. That's real like it. If you don't know right now, that's not a big deal. That can research and we just didn't know if you're like ooh. Instagram off people whose you know, I, you know I think. People who are doing lots of different ways? I mean I. You know I think Uh. Karen Olivo is somebody that's that's a very image even. You know she is someone that I think people should follow. I think Adrian Warren someone. That's very active and aware of everything right now. Leshan says another one. That's very active and very aware. There's so many I mean we all I mean just follow. Follow Theater artists of color, any theater artists of color that you can find on twitter follow. The the algorithm will then say you should be. Yeah everybody I. Mean there are a lot of people and I I guess there's Instagram to. Of course. A lot of people are are are speaking up very powerful ways right now and. Going about effecting change in their specific way I mean you know Rene least goals various another one who is very politically active. Look at what Amber Riley is doing and that amp, sweet, amazing amber, Riley, who was a not only? From the television success she's had, but she's a theater artist as well and brilliant in dreamgirls I hopefully she'll get to bring her dreamgirls over to this side of the Atlantic, but she was brilliant as Efi Andrea girls over him. In London and she is on fire with what she is doing, and how she's trying to shout about change and create change and make people aware There's lots of us out there Yeah No, US! Yes. I'd say honoring Donald I I I'm to the point in the podcast where I sometimes I call it. yogi recess. Yoga class like you really wanted to like. Do you're like you know like revolved triangle?

I'm just so loss but I expect what are we gonNA talk grapes clubs that's okay no we were talking about Snoop Dogg all right I I would require additional investors is speech makes sense this love okay with me Christie's doing quite good by using lies on sure but albums charting Wallace Chris Brown Song plays in the background she took to her mischievous game after it was twitter but probably both yeah maybe both and supposedly saw they've never seen no shit like this in their life and I be forgetting Oh you can see right now because it's not the same everywhere no we don't need to be charged that sorry I just don't but I mean I guess is at least at all now side and so he can get very Chris Brownie very melodic rb ask however for obvious reasons many people are upset about it and situation did not need that none of that amount Mario would fewer those to put anybody unless okay next barbecue places or something like that ah video of her glossy posse lip glosses s looks like it's really Rachel Women's to about hear more and so on isn't there is on now I don't know I stopped watching love and hip hop it's just bad it's all bad and Mona keeps throwing people in taken to their own social media's to express their disappointment here's the Hang I UH-HUH I'm just taking so supposed to gang gang just me and my glossy posse finding beauty and in the background is undistorted while they wait to maybe get out of all people like you don't really get out early for for murder but maybe so I don't know face like I'm supposed to know who they are and I just don't and I don't care either I don't give a shit you bitch they use the break Cardi's cousy hair so saw whatever fucking mansion she staying at this week she probably really did just like bring me one about him lip glosses and just say right elsewhere so I feel like since allowed to be like ooh girl not liking this but the world is still spinning and I just don't you know all the rights to play the song in whichever way she chooses on the other hand I feel like it is more than understandable for people specifically fans of hers the report also probably like copywriting probably so you know right or even that little location news was the starlit butcher yes there we go you rush onyx so if you live in Miami Atlanta are beyond how Riyan feels about him like like a reality is not the only woman who has had to press charges on Chris Brown okay not the television program right I'm just thinking of like I mean I'm sure they watch it alone it's not the right way to I I don't have a dog in by you know because on one hand I feel like a is completely possible to pack wine which I feel like we've already gotten five of those who didn't need me yeah I dunno we certainly significant wants to his side of the story which on the you know every Chris Brown on I think I've heard in the past few years at least because I can't tell you the last album I listen to intentionally maybe the one I think maybe that was that was disgusted I think that was maybe the one I listened to last his last two or maybe three albums VH1 on V. H. One is lofty 'cause the Y. really know who signal is how do I be watch via it's much she's not the only woman who has had to deal with Chris Brown in his fuck ary and then there's the whole constantly getting into shit with different people and fighting and just haven't even approached him because I'm like forty songs girl my brain a real for this I don't even know when he puts out music until you tell me in the studio the new sometimes I started getting on the train but I always have headphones yeah so I just really I just really don't listen to his music I think of the last time I listened to a Chris Brown song because he these fucking New Testament long albums and I just like I don't care by add won't allow me to do it they just won't but it sounds yeah no what I saw it on instagram and I had to really listen I was like is that occurs Bra I kinda do feel like that is Chris but then also like this is the first time has worked with him since the incident is not the first time she's talked about his back and we're GONNA be seen right all that and my issues with Chris Brown go far ought to be upset by it and express their that they're upset by it especially since it's being played a song where she's promoting a product that she's trying to in maybe you like Chris Rounds Music genuinely do not anymore I like his oldest of but I have not liked Chris Brown song and I can't tell you how I don't I feel comfortable with that or whatever I totally get that but it's hard for me to boycott Chris Brown anymore than I already you just like our isis at the same time I cannot claim to represent you at how you feel because we're two totally different people and I don't even know who the fuck you are and so however I'm dealing with my trauma and general dumb nigger Drian so a lot going on with Chris Brown that to where you know if we ANA has his music in the background of her instagram video there's you know y'all y'all y'all go fight people upset with her for her choice to not be as angry as they are Anna right like I get how everybody I can't really say how everybody feels because there's no actual telling how I could give you good gas she didn't want to be like the face of domestic violence and I can really understand that and so it's Kinda like you know some of you may don't give a fuck about that listening because on us like okay girl the same vein I feel like everybody is like that kind of incident I remember Riana saying that she didn't want to be the the girl who got be a WHO now like she didn't want You know however I decided I'm GonNa Act Publicly or privately or whatever else it can't really be representative of you because she never claimed to be that so a such gloss why I'm I'm so tired listener whatever of it and I thought to myself expert it relate because you also had a similar experience with somebody you were dating so you feel you know this sort of weird fucked up sisterhood with me which I get but some of them are confused color me confused soon as I saw it was called prep I was like what the fuck is going so I was headed to Atlanta last week Oh that's not it's not like the way I feel about Chris is contingent on however Yana feels about him right like or how I feel about Riana to be honest with you at all how I feel about it so yes prep is the party and it was like described as this party this was represent what it would have been like in the eighties screening for watchman and as I was headed out there a friend of mine sent me it's extras like oh Frank Ocean's Agnes party or whatever and care for but that is fair as well I mean yes I do understand like you said I do understand why people would be like kind of promoting an abuser and you know we don't Erica well and so the thing about this is when you go through something like domestic abuse in his so public and you have so every song I've heard has been because it was on the radio or heard it out at somewhere or something like that and listen to the radio go out so I literally have no chance to hear writing listening Oh yeah just going to have to let that lady process and live the way she does and and you do the same for yourself some of the girls are upset with Franklin Ocean it's okay so landed in Georgia I'm like frank is absolutely these are like the height of the AIDS crisis in the gay community if if they had prep back van what that's how it was described what would it have been like having a party this is probably promotion of something that he's getting ready to do right party happens day later he's isn't that basically where where that goes against the do you see why people so they're fucking at the party or not this Chris Brown song which I'm not even GonNa Front I don't know I haven't heard it it's apparently a song it's a collaboration with her don't know if it's her song or his I'm going to guess that it's his the ongoing okay well it came out when blonde came out okay so for clarity I haven't really been involved in house music come through precious Jesus told w goal for arenas being a place where she has moved on from the situation with this snigger has forgiven this nature and likes the song fully has and I saw that it was called prep plus and I looked at some of the verbiage included inland the promotion any song alcohol DHL which I haven't even listened to but he's got like a radio channel or whatever on beats now like blonded radio so frank apparently didn't interview where he said something about how he's like really into think back then if proper available to the to the community a lot more people alive vita like I said somebody had just told me about it because literally on instagram page until two days ago or whatever they told me Thursday is way better than off up so maybe now that we're so far removed from the hype and all that I'll feel differently about it but I am I it just was not for me so Zine I've been interested in club in many different durations nightlife for music and songs in so things I look at now have a lot to do with those scenes Detroit Chicago tack now doc Chanel on that album yeah the on both sides like Chanel saw so I'll I'll go back to because I've done that before revisited albums and been like Oh this join and if I don't like it doesn't have to be good if it's two different or if it's not you know whatever if I'm not ready for you like this cool down and listen to it wins whatever a lot of people did Yeah I can see why because like a prep plus party this sounds like 'cause I'm like what am that's on Signi don't give up I mean right 'cause that's deliberate right that's what I'm saying like you she knows what time it is today which lead me to think hey girl we're talking about okay have you been to like a rolling loud Nigga meek mill got why people coming out by the truckload so I don't know what you thought Frank Ocean is releasing a thin like we would never know but I wasn't free to go because I thought at the very least it will be super gay and a spectacle of course we're invited lot of the criticisms from the Party itself from those who went was that it was overwhelmingly white which to that I say like Nigga what this Franken who else is part I'm not interested in like even though the no this is just the Super Gay Electronic parties are the you have to be sexual or gay or whatever his queer identity and then I basically didn't hear nothing from it was they know why boy for a while and I just haven't seen it and so oh Carr's sexy and if you WanNa have your your fucking parties then you can go for it honey you know what I mean I understand that spot it's cultures the same lake would be when I hear Kendrick Lamar I don't think todd your call right but like but still when I go to the dams or I'm surrounded by right so it's like it's about Franco's you can get that through text unless he was like especially if it was that kind of party we there would have never been why when most rap concerts go to now are overwhelmingly white okay I mean and not see that point it just seems to me like because you couldn't buy tickets to this that means that you know makes the Party and I'm not interested in like there's here's the thing there's like Chicago Traditional Chicago House publicists or whoever put together then you would think that Frank Ocean is just surrounded by niggers which I don't believe Oh okay well see I don't know too much about he announced the whole I just never did and so I don't even feel like listening to this before I listened to that I'm just why it I didn't care for blonde there's a couple of songs I still play like pink and white still really loved in a mood for that I'm saying the music at a party to me is like at least seventy percent of you know what Ed in Mali the girls come out you know what I'm saying I'm not what I'm saying is I'm I would not be shocked that Frank Ocean Prep Party was overwhelmingly it'll be meds and condoms everywhere it's like why would he why is that happening even that I wouldn't believe it Franco's would have billy it'd be so publicly promoted today with these fucking Swedish Jay's mixing some shit around with cocaine in there I don't need it I hate that like created by the community and completely lifted up by black people and the same thing can be said for Detroit in like a couple anything frank for ocean related like I haven't listened to blonde I didn't listen to this new song and I didn't listenable when it came out because there was such a long lease full of actual black and specifically black Latino gay communities and that is so different than what you hear in why gay clubs to pass out to these mother fuckers because like you think about how busy people must be and how much time especially if you really get down to business yeah the French electric and so on so this told me that Frank Ocean is trying to make music like Sarka parties and now I'm just okay right but the house to be like Bitch Duh Mike I don't know why just never really thought about it but yeah okay you're right never mind I sola frank as an artist I think the point I just wanted to see pecs and give me a drink and I'm just existing to look at some sexiness but yeah I can't abide why gay clubs at least in black ones the music now you know what I mean and so I can tolerate like some old school mid West House but this shit up to it that was full of hype and all of this dramatic shit so when it dropped I was like I can't listen to this right now because if it's not good I'm GonNa be Sodas is good but why gay clubs I just can't go the ones the parties y'all take me to not just be wondering in okay you know what I said I left and then I really I'm lost right now I like I literally had to say it Gatehouse party he was it was there an invite Lizard people buy tickets no I think this was like an invite thing see southern that's something else like yeah but why would there be overwhelmingly white people invited it's Frank Ocean but I mean when I when I hear Franco's and I don't think Todd Takao but you really could play whatever because they I it feels to me they're more there to flirt make connections and just have a good time with their friends and so that's what like brings it in and then sometimes you have a DJ that comes in and is allowed and doesn't give a fuck to play some dumb shit and the thing is like why gays that come out I've noticed surly matter what they're listening to so you could still fucking play Nikki Cardi or for whoever the Earth Dang Nigga I don't know you it was like all of that stuff is great anyway because you don't really need rhythm all you have to do sort of stay side design true Johnson faces you know I've been to some clubs before that are predominantly white or at least this is maybe just my observation don't give there's like prejudiced winds are like I don't WanNa hear that they don't give a fuck they can't dance no way there's still like as long as they're making eye contact with the person they just message John Grinder and they are so I don't even understand why we have so much issue but again this time replace for that there are some people who specifically like those beats that we hate it's not that there's no place for that people really do like the kind of shape and it seems like some people sort of accused him of like a racing Wien erasing the HIV anything else else what is this okay should have been a sex party a huge part of the movement in the first place so a lot of people were kind of offended by the whole idea of There are other like more weight green dreads and like seven foot tall bitches roller skating around I thought it would be like weird and Super Gay Thumping Music Drag racy I just had a party you could call it channel Rainbow and just invited all the white straight people you wanted I'm just saying like you could have literally done it is to me I don't WanNA listen to it I don't like all of that which is like you know like again there are there are more complicated criticisms like a lot of people were kind of offended by the whole premise of the party in it's something sounds that way yeah escaped all this criticism if you didn't tie in HIV AIDS epidemic in the eighties and this life saving medication you could apparently there was no sponsorship there is no educational tie into proper how it works so you really not only could have called it something else but should have come eight people we'll start Dj's according I wasn't there I'm just reading someone at out Mikhail's out of the names Michael McKell straight but there are two songs that he got teased at the party that are already remixed like he play like the club remixed a song that seems we haven't heard yet addictive people and the people who allied around them during the eighties and so on because obviously like epidemic and a lot of the people dealing with it Okay why is this right because I told you I thought at least would be super gay and I thought I would see maybe you know like niggers with lime okay whatever so go for it Another criticism party got was that it was on early overwhelmingly white wasn't very clear there are loads eh Sullivan that's where he's going and it sounds like it is I'm not interested but Frank Ocean as an artist I still enjoy anginal orange is great as well as in fact in this German d remix very shortly and Douglas some times I bump into a couple of those and they do sound good but for the most part this sounds like a papa Frank Ocean's friends so I was just engine media outlets invited because there's a whole bunch of niggers there for Frank Ocean Party being incredibly stressed out every single day anyway yeah back and yeah and now we're here I'm going to try blonde again though soon as I hear it takes me back to that job I had at black enterprise and being too broke to even afford to dress according to the dress code and just this is just so fucking solid and it came at a great time it did it came in on God in my life so much was happening when that album came out like we go I wanted to say congratulations to amber riley because see just wrapped up the little shop of horrors that they were doing at the Pasadena playhouse Tade criticisms to me it just seemed like it was underwhelming party that probably should've just been named some now they go there is that there you go there was a march okay see now I went and saw it when I was in La last weekend and it was so good of course amber sings her fucking Esau and I had texted I was like are you performing anywhere this weekend because I'll be there and she was like oh I'm in this musical and I guess she thought I was bullshitting wasn't really gonNA come bitch I turned around and bought the ticket like the very next minute because if amber riley is singing I want to be in the bill and it was just really really well done very cute I liked it a lot which is new for me because I usually do not like if I feel needed off going listen to it see I feel about that and I do want to wrap up the hot topic is about to save with the incredibly stressful life situations that we all go through is just invaluable I love talks base I will forever sing their praises because they are just little shop before I saw it when I was young and it horrified me like it was supposed to have always been afraid of it but this was really cute m m j Rodriguez the sexual girl her stuck girlfriend broke up with her and she was like not into the bisexual thing and she said you know she stayed even though she had all these reasons not to like trust issues being broke and all these other things happening so anyway Rachel emailed us back and she said a few weeks listened yet channel orange to me is an incredibly perfect album still stay this name to this threat to free Cosa this is about to be what it sound talking to somebody who's actually qualified to help you like it's great to talk to friends and family and take it to Jesus and all that but somebody who has been trained actually help you deal my mom decided to share her sentiments on the situation she blamed me also citing confusion in Bible verses as the reason for my break-up this definitely did not help with that I was feeling like Shit I am currently living with my mom for the next month until my remodeled apartment is ready who girl these events coupled with me coming off birth control and this plant audrey she was so good in it it was just really adorable really well done I liked it a lot and I just wanted to say congrats to amber because she killed that shit and now she's going to be working on the style jokes from the sergeant ultra is really good too but I feel like channel orange is just perfect so maybe one day I'll listen to blonde and be like okay I'll a seat at the table for me it's really really so incredibly clutch and they help us meet their be where we are in are incredibly busy lives again you can get started today talks has more than five thousand licensed therapists who are I was willing to work it out with her but me at my lowest was too much for her to handle is crazy you can treat someone the way you would like to be treated but the moment you treat them how they've been treating you it's a problem well I'm continuing and we just read them aloud on Air you remember a few weeks ago we had a letter from Rachel who is about live today mobile portable in available when you need it simply provide your preferences for therapy and talks basis gonNA match you with one of their five thousand plus therapists the very same day then you can send your therapist unlimited use someone to talk to a prisoner who can support us the rough patches or just the everyday ups and downs whatever you life is looking like and that is where talks base comes in therapy for other personal stuff have really taken a toll mentally I ended up spiraling into a state of depression I still have moments where I stumble even in the midst of all this I expressed to this S. of this like many of us are kind of accustomed to are we expect for older generations specifically family members and my letter love Rachel Rachel you're welcome I hope you keep going thirty to work through my issues it's work but necessary to balance things going on in my life I'm thankful I have a strong support system like my sister and best friend to keep me level thank you for taking the time to read right and forgive her she ended up calling it quits when she got mad over the conversation around her spending Thanksgiving with me even though it's still a month and a half away even when you knew you needed to leave so unfortunate that you have to like deal with the back and forth and I super fail for bisexual you can see it and go through all of your woes aggravations with somebody who's literally trained to help t wotton gets you dissect it and feel better yeah because the thing is that ready to help so to get started and match with your perfect therapist for a fraction of the price of traditional therapy go to tax base dot com and use code to get sixty five dollars off your first month that's code people in that regard because I feel like it is very common whether it's reversed by eraser definitely listening to pro pro woman mile-long gun personally I like Trina 's first album audio picture or video messages from anywhere anytime and one month of therapy on the talks flatwork is about the same amount as single face-to-face session so look it's affordable enough for her either maybe she started going to therapy like requested instead of doing everything the fuck else she can focus on that instead of how long it was taking me to quote get over my mermaid skill I see both busy girl all right well that is it for the hot topics this week break and then we're going to be right back so listen we could a few therapy sessions later here I am three days after our initial break up with her tearing me down about my bisexuality and how no one what confused person ridiculous ain't nobody going won't you like wait a minute just plenty of people were just because you have an issue with me being bisexual does not mean everybody else feels it because it's it's going to help you unpack not only that relationship but what happened in your life that led you to accepting that and staying in it actually saw it when it happened I wasn't a UFC fan time okay but I have seen white as you would like to know and close friends or whatever even to reject whatever since then for her queer people within the Community Reed R. E. A. D. at talks base dot Com let them know we sent you let's get back to the show we're back at it is now time for the listener letters Sydney questions to ask the Jimoh DOT com. Yeah you're not doing anything wrong the stress is completely understandable the annoyance law that stuff but yeah therapy and question here for you about the UFC two two nine Khabib Norma Gov Adele Nirma Goma Dov acting that on you as a negative thing you're going through rather than just acknowledging that you're on a different you're just different seat in terms of this'll so now I feel like I have to say so it's like they had a fight assets they wanna know your thoughts they went on all into their thoughts but they WanNa know yours the third sister she could just give me a little room to start myself out we could move forward working together on our relationship which was foolish apparently I wasn't moving fast classics you can start their whatever you WanNa do a quick reminder syndergaards Jana okay all right so some trainers witnessed while you're asking yes yeah this person says it's one of my all time favorite moments in white on white crime it is isn't it oh he right anyway comrades like a huge Dick like a he like terrible person okay and I guess there was like a ton of of you kind of like a one on one thing it's like rather than having a favorite team you're really like throwing a ton of fans behind one person be similar a lot of fighters that cadence of AIG on the prettiest motherfucker this with anyone who's very that in places extra but conor McGregor being like and then think about people like Floyd Mayweather and like a lot of other boxers it's like their whole I feel like I find it that same way all that the study was going through was insecurity Tanabe able to satisfy you fully and put it on Dan hopped out like out of the gay or the hopped out of the rain and Abroa- broke out between him and it'd be too much if you TQ AB everything they don't even know what the restaurants so long just say clear yeah but anyway art members of McGregor's team just looked so great so much fun to watch too and he's very infamous fighter I think he was a Russian and Conor McGregor is I wanted to stay hype in media presence around this fight because you know there's another thing I really like about boxing and mayor UFC or whatever is that looked like UFC post brawls there are a lot of good ones okay get spicing I really don't like you know needs also like lobue back basically be like oh well your views bitch and I like that is crazy so should I been feeling about that bitch over there as well and then all hell broke loose and facts I after watching that clip okay which is also very entertaining Kinda McGregor is a huge asshole I believe he lost the fight and then could be like at the it was white damn you know Conor McGregor was widened could be Nurmagambetov was he does look like one of them's like spicier white folks probably not for people in ball do you do you know who could be one oh okay so that's why everybody is happy about it I think okay beano scenario has such I mean they know it yeah ever seen you just went to sit on it yeah okay good so Saudi has being my fists and elbows feet and yours only one of us come here okay fighting so I love you because it has it has you know balance Ruleson are they don't see there's added by saying there are pictures of his dead Mama on the IPAD so I let it go you can just yesterday we traveled home from a family vacation and my phone died there were three videos of his ex-girlfriend sucking his Dick and now thin and someone that they're going to fight another person there's this hype around it but then they also kick shit at each other and that's part of it as a super dramatic and more money to get his ipad fixed and I pat he has not used in five whole years I brought it up to him and he kind of brushed it off like it wasn't a big deal and he just uh-huh or should I sneak and delete the videos to hurt his dumb ass feelings that way when he goes to enjoy them later they would they will have been obliterated and Burma okay how even try number Gohmert of I hope I said that right conor McGregor fight did you see it so I never knbr one I'm glad okay yeah McGregor lost okay good it was like and while we're at it you know I don't know kind of McGregor's asking effort okay well yeah this was a some whiteness that I did not understand Kelly bloody though I mean well yeah people get blading boxing to way more I don't look at that naval honest you know it's getting right to it he's no bullshit the no I was just going off the name I thought he was shade of Brown that's why I was trying to name right that's her to go but that last name is super not I don't know how to say plus UFC game is fantastic e is a terrible company but the games great okay yeah I just pretending to know what these words me all right asked about his second text my mother until her that we made home safe however in his text threads and noticed an attachment message from his own phone number I clicked it because self and how I like to adjust find funny how a negative death so I kept acute and decide to go another route my question is should I bring it up in a conversation so he can feed me some lie the better so fuck shit wow yeah you gotta you gotTa show him out of nowhere had enough and struggling right now right and we're struggling right now but then you spent money to fix the IPAD so that you could keep the porn you live the next letter comes from Patricia who says my husband and I have to everybody I think a great aunt so here's the thing that's why I'm pissed how dare you this is why you should be leaving the snicker mel offer divorce because so pat says my husband and I have fallen on times financially and we got into it a few weeks ago about him spending unnecessary amounts of money recently I found out he spent even and low and be fucking hold their videos from the aforementioned IPAD and guess what they were his mama no that'll be too much like right you guessed it I don't know one of those little adapters up to your computer there so many ways you could have gotten those videos off of that ipad without spending eight hundred dollars we're absolutely get access to those videos and whenever the game is all an arm one Sunday night y'all maybe watch together to me about it and you didn't need to spend no money on a first place if you wanted these you can email them to yourself how he wanted to show his homeboys should take his phone while he sleep and play it on our Bluetooth Speaker to wake him up myself the videos I suggest either a great aunt blackouts I got Oh lord the fake aunts make up a lot of the everybody gotta see the best are because they the now it's not that bad but it is stank as bad because you know first of all you're saving sex tapes with you and your axe that's no but let me just hit play Yup and be like so glad we spent eight hundred dollars the IPAD so you could get them videos bomber we know exactly what the fuck he did so yeah air-dropped in videos to yourself and then I don't know you don't do it in a public place awesome you Dan Mama on it speaking if you gave me another good it's actually great to be like so I was thinking right so like I'm pissed me as airline be light so that you could keep sex tapes your accent in and see you didn't have to spend this money that we need anyway I should punch going to make enough copies of this digital presentation for the whole family to have one my kind that you'll give it to everybody at Thanksgiving and are something together and just be scrolling my phone I'm looking at instagram and then I say Oh babe look yes this deposit this video

right so clearly you know up to crime
