"Carol. I believe carol more than i believe. Bethany side of the story. I know i used to be like i'm a carol. Moon like bethany rising had masculine. Will they both did. Yeah and that's why. I loved their relationship so much and they were the most grounded of the cast members. What i get from melanie talking about it. Melody keeps insisting that it's just so queer and that intense female friendships are inherently queer. When you add that layer of intensity the jealousy they go through with each other the the just such fierce attachments there that are so inherently queer to me. I can't imagine a lesbian wouldn't wanna watch it. Yes i can but especially when there's conflict that i realized that they are so gay like these. Two women like bethany. Carol were best friends for seasons on the show and then they have this falling out and it all plays out on camera. And then you've got bethany franken. Who's like the rich. This woman is making like two million dollars a season. Like she's running empire she speaking and she is hysterical crying on camera sobbing that she doesn't have a relationship with carol anymore. Right if that's not gay. I don't know what is right. i mean you have. The overt gain is to whenever they get the make out when they're drunk they'll go to bluestone manner and they'll make out. Wait remember win bethany. Carol i were becoming tight on the show. Carol comes to her. There's a scene. I think it's like season seven or season. Eight like sorted just met and there's a scene where like they're eating lunch and carroll says to her. I had a sex dream about you last night. Oh my god do you remember that. No i've seen the season so many times so all right there we should remember that because seasons seven and ten. I love so much. Do you think she's lying. I think that's a common lie. That people tell i have sex dream about you. In order to put feelers out at the convoy go and oh that's so funny. I think she was okay. I've seen people do that. Before as like a moo or like sometimes people will post like the dm. Oh like someone just sent me this weird message. I think it's a lie and they don't know how else to like. Let you know that they're potentially interested potentially interested. And then that's the way to gauge. The reaction is the person. Like ooh or are they like ill gross. Don't worry about me. that's a really good tactic. I've never used that in my real life. i'm somewhat newly well my year newly single and so that's a good. Thank you keep that in mind. Yeah thank you that scene. I just googled sex stream bethany. Carol i remember now because i remember bethany face. She's holding a spoon she goes. Did we go downtown said man.

"No, I know. You know, we had another break up over the weekend. I think can't even be bothered with their names. OK, you know, Now here was there, Sonny like me. Here's a little juicy juice from S O. We met, Um Jonathan. The guy who runs the Lee Radziwill account. Yes, he was on your show. I listen to the replay yesterday. Yeah, Okay. So some of the, which is a Twitter account that we follow. That's just couldn't snarky about gravel stuff. A lot of braavos stuff a lot of just about life lessons with Lee and just kind of it's kind of Lee Radziwill was Jackie Kennedy's Right, Like Like when Tyler Perry announced that he was single, you know, Lee Radziwill did a very funny thing about all the rich women in Beverly Hills in Atlanta. You know, running screaming with the glam scratch, get in the car and go find another period. Just stuff like that. But So if we were just to go back because they know you're enjoying as many people are the real house prices Salt Lake City just love love. It's reminding us of why we like the Housewives in the first place. I'll be cut, but it's a different setting a different scenery in the religion, The Mormon pieces fantastic on top of it. I love it. But there's you know, petty drama as there always is, you know in anything and remember the last season Of Rahul's face of New York the season It was ended up being the last season that Carol Reds well was yes. And Bethany did come back one more time. But they had like those two were besties. And then they couldn't stand each other. And we never. We got all kinds of being like that. Carol was mean to Tinsley. Your bet There was never A real reason about those who broke up because they were buddies. They were think it's thieves. That's right. It was the break up during the season two. Yes, it showed. So the okay so apparently The real reason why they broke up and this is from, um Ah, ah source where all they do is Bravo step, but it's pretty good details on this. Um, that The real issue was Cassandra Gray and Cassandra Gray. Her husband, husband, Brad Gray was the head of Paramount Pictures. He died in May of 2019. He helped Brad Pitt with Plan B productions. He was a huge He died at like the age of 54 5 or six or something. So his wife could, Sandra. She is really good friends with Carol Rads. Well, okay and Bethany had been wanting a solo. Deal ever since she came back and went back to Bravo to be a housewife. And Bravo wasn't interested in doing a solo show with Bethany. They don't think she can carry it. Okay. Well, we know that because she had a talk show deal with Ellen, and it fell into itself in three months. So anyway, that has so anyway, so that when Brad died in May of 2017 Carol spent Your reds. Well spent most of the summer staying with Cassandra Gray at her place in the Hamptons. Okay. Got it. That's how rich you know. Yeah. Beverly Hills Hamptons. Okay, so Bethany home, Bethany, leave my notion to go to the right. So Bethany kept pushing Carol. I want to come and hang out. Yeah, at your house with Cassandra and Brad's friends and stuff because she Basically was like I wanted to make some connect. Yeah, Never can. Carole knew this. And Carole knew this, and she felt that Cassandra was Grieving, not appropriate timing. Yeah, and so she kept pushing her off. And Bethany was getting really upset because, remember she and Frederick the million dollar listing. They had a show together for one season. There was a disaster, and apparently, Fredrick said he'd never work with her again. So Bethany really just kept pushing Carol she Carol's just like it's not appropriate for me to come and hit upon my friend who's grieving her husband and blah, blah, blah. And so when filming started, Carol didn't realize that Bethany was so upset about it because Carol Rads. Well, was a longtime journalist for ABC. And and when we would see Bethany and her be strong when she did the hurricane relief and then a flood relief. That the people that she was in touch with the charitable organization, the boots on the grounds all the picture on film. Those were Carol's connections through ABC, knowing that these were charities because I always wondered got out at the media also connected. Right. It was Carole Radziwill is connections so back and he knows that Carol is good for working her up, and he gave her Great story line allowed her to raise a lot of money. Absolutely to do good sister also get publicity. So Carol was blindsided when filming started that Bethany Attitude. It changed towards her, and she started slamming her every other. Minute in confessionals and stuff like that, And it was because Carol didn't help set her up with You believe this now? Because you've always been a Bethany Bethany Bethany person I do. I do believe that I do believe that because I believe Bethany got helped by Carol to me. You know the charity, right? And then Bethany just could not. She strikes me as a bull in a China shop and she get percent annoy idea in her head, Which is what makes her success. 100% of let it go. He doesn't let it go, and she doesn't She put self over relationship that ultimately is also wide. Carol quit. After that season. She was just like this is just nuts, right? I don't need any of this right because those two were such great friends and got her dragged down in a lot of things. And Carol is a very successful person with money of did and they made her look like a Schmo. Yeah, they better look cheap and that all she was interested in is wait. Last fillers and the glam squad. Had her brother Adam, her boyfriend and was headed. Um, so anyway, um okay. Interesting. So that was it. So it was all about? Well, Bethany is, uh, that's why she's successful. I mean, this is This is kind of the thing about some of the people in media in this type of media. You've got to be got to be ruthless. If that's what you want, That's what you want, and that's what she wanted. And what's her name? Carole Radziwill was just like not really interested because she had had fame and accolades for years, and Bethany's was newer found. That's right, like nouveau wish. Here you go, Nouveau reality stuff We've been doing Hollywood speaking. But it is time to do more because when we come back, we've got a Hollywood speak a couple of things, And I think you're on fire and you can do it. All right? Nothing but.

"You're gonna figure this out because it's acceptance is moving forward actually changing around moving forward. You gotta move forward. It's like you gotta put one foot in front of others as simple as that sounds, you've gotta do that. And if you it's like analysis paralysis.

"Hi everyone nor to gory here, and you're listening to in-progress an imperfect journey navigated. And this podcast is presented by girl boss, radio in partnership with to me. So over the course of ten episodes, we will be going on a journey together will be deep diving with the best in the brightest female founders, entrepreneurs and creatives out there and offering you the motivation. You need to transition from where you are to where you want to be these brilliant women. And I mean, brilliant will be dishing out real world advice for self development on the go. So you can dare to change direction. And so you can live a more fulfilling and productive life. You know, the life you deserve. Let's go. Today we are talking about what nobody tells you about changing careers. So if you've recently quit your job, if you're thinking about quitting your job, if you're thinking about just changing pads today, we're going to talking about what it's like to begin a new adventure, and oftentimes people admire that, but it isn't always realistic for people's experiences. So here's what you personally need to know about jumping ship and starting again. And today we're talking to Cassandra gray, who is the founder of violet gray. She wants a marketing consulting business and wrote the business plan for violet grey while she was still in her old role and then took numerous steps before jumping to violet grey full-time, which is where she's at now as the chief creative officer, and of course founder welcome back to the show. Hi, thank you. So when it comes to changing. Careers, what is the first question people should be asking themselves? I think as much as you can figure out what the commitment is and really understanding how that's going to affect your life. I think asking yourself ama- already to change my lifestyle. I mean, I think if you're if this is about sort of entrepreneurship and you're thinking about starting a company and maybe you were working for a company now or your wanna change your whatever it is, but starting a company. I mean, it is it is a lifestyle and it's nonstop. And I think it's really challenging to have a good quality of life. If your family isn't supportive, if you're married are or have kids, or if you're not ready to be working nights and weekends, and it's not like you're working nights and weekends because you have to. I think that's kind of a myth that to start a company, you have to work, you know, twenty hours. Day. I mean, it's not a myth that you are usually meant to build something without enough time without enough people without enough money, which is hard. And you know, usually have to work overtime. But I think what happens with people starting things as they work nights and weekends and don't have a lot of time for balance or other things in life because they have to like because they're so it's so much fun like it's you so obsessed like, you can't stop thinking about building and there's just never, you know, there's never a quiet moment. I, I've found anyway. So I think you know, you have to really be ready to sort of like dive in and I think you know, you gotta be ready to commit like five years. What are some of the misconceptions to changing career paths? Yeah. I mean, I think that's, I mean, that's changed so much. I think just in the last, you know, ten years and. In most of the young people that I, you know, come come across or hang around like they're changing their jobs every two years. And then I have, you know, I have a great friend and mentor who is she's called Carol barrister and she's like a, you know, she's won an Oscar for songwriting. She's a songwriter and she's, you know, I don't. I don't. She's like of the age that you don't talk about her age. Phil say, she's immature later in her life. And in a she just decided she wanted to be a painter should never been a painter, and she just started painting. And Nash she has this like career as a painter, like she has a, you know, a show coming up with like a lot. So I've seen both young people and older people that have done what they love. They're in their dream job or doing what they are passionate about for, you know, fifteen years or twenty years or thirty years, and then move into something else, which I think is really courageous and really exciting. But I think right now it's more and more common that you know. Somebody wants to set you up with an actor slash models, lash entrepreneurs sh- whatever. I mean, it's really sort of normal to have multiple careers at the same time. Even. Did you was there ever a point in your life where you were juggling multiple careers? Yeah, yeah. I mean, I think I think I think right now I'm juggling multiple career. I mean, I'm using different parts of my brain. How so? Like I, I do a lot of business which is very different than creative, and I do a lot of creative, which is so I, you know, I I've kind of gotten to a place where I, I have to be really structured to be productive because I'm not a structured person organically. So I have a schedule that really works for me. And so I have days that is that is very specifically dedicated to being. Creative because I know that I need to be in that space, and I can't like shift from one thing to the next. So I think juggling multiple careers is about, you know, time management, but you can do it. It's just it just you have to sort of organize your life. What are some mental and emotional preparation? Someone can make ahead of changing careers or lifestyle. While I'm I'm an alcoholic. I'm an alcoholic synonymous and there's a twelve step program and it's like a twelve step program for life. And it's it's really just really simple. But I mean, it kind of applies to anything, and it's just about, like being honest and rigorously honest, and always like keeping your house clean and figuring out, you know where your fears and resentments are getting them out and writing about them and like just getting clean, I think, and being like a a channel where your you know is your. All those things are not holding you back because they're usually connected to pride and anger and and fear. So if you could sort of self actualize and you know, whatever, read books about their so much stuff out there and and also an also meditating. I mean, meditating like a simple thing that I think a lot of people think that they're not doing right or they don't know how to do. And really there's no wrong way to do it. And it's one thing that you do it consistently every day for even five minutes, you'll feel much more grounded before you start something that's gonna make you feel not grounded, how do you meditate? I have a meditation that I do that says it's on the internet. It's it's golden light meditation, it's twenty minutes. It's all about leading light interior body and filling your thought in its, I love it. Like I feel amazing. After I meditate, do you do it once or twice a day? It depends on how rough my days. If I think about exercise or relaxation or meditation or sleep as tools that are going to make me better at my job, it's it's, it works better for me. That's so yeah, I think so much sense in I'd I, I'm, I'm also Jewish alcoholic Jewish. So we have Chaba which is like, brilliant. Everyone should have Shabaab as it's literally a day that you need to take off to recharge. And I think there's misconceptions about when you're starting something that you and I think it's like people get so burnt out. I mean, areana Huffington, you know, built a whole -ympia. This is this is what happens. And I think the mentality particularly when it's competitive with young people like I'm going to be there. I, I'm gonna leave last. I'm gonna work. You know all day every day and I'm not gonna do anything for myself. I'm just going to go after it and and then you know, you get burnt out. And so I think if you think about, you know, I think great things happen like an intervals of four hours. So it's like if you can like work and be in it and be focused for four hours and then like take the rest of the day off to exercise, or I think that's completely fine.

"I, I let her do that. I guess because it's how going to be able to build this scale, the company. I mean, that takes a lot of self actualization and like understanding that there is something bigger at play here, which is your company in the message that you're bringing along in the brand that you're bringing along. What kind of advice would you give to people about. Just really being able to look in the mirror and say, like, this is my skills at this is what I'm good at. Let me learn how to delegate and let me learn how to do what's best for my brand or my mission so that we can grow together. But I think it starts with having faith and the biggest benefit to having faith is, you know, like once you do it as as hard as it is, even if you're on the verge of bankruptcy, you're doing it and you're literally living your dream. So when people ask you like higher doing like, hey, you know, I'm living the dream and it's real. So whatever phase your end is hard as it is like you're doing it. All right. Before we go, can you offer us three tips for women who are considering. Being making a huge career or life transition of their own. Okay. So kind of to wrap this up, I think one is think big and get big dream big and learn how to articulate your dream and away that inspires people to help you or join you because you're gonna need people. And to is if you haven't saved money, write a business plan and get an angel investor because you're gonna need money and three is be prepared to work hard and follow through on all the little things because it's all the little things that make the big things happen. I love that. And then it's like, just don't give up. Don't give up no matter what. That's just like a reminder. Three times alcoholics anonymous don't drink are used drugs, no matter what no matter what. Perfect way to wrap this episode. Thank you so much, and we will see you next up. So.

Where was your head in your heart at at the time? I, I wanted to start a company, you know, since I'm twenty and was constantly dreaming and scheming up ideas. And you know thinking when I was dreaming I was mostly dreaming about a team of people that were like executing something that I wanted to build like that was the dream. And I worked, as I mean before sort of getting into entrepreneurship or working for myself, I worked as a waitress as a barista. I, I was a manager of children's clothing store. So I had like a lot of working experience with bosses before I started my own consultancy, and I think you know, consultancies like seems like a big word. I didn't think I had a career and I was, you know, pursuing my career, I thought I know something about marketing for whatever reason. Like to study human behavior and I like to. Collect people. And so I had the sort of like corral of influencers that I- parlayed into helping companies attract and associate with those people that community. Are that culture. When was the first moment when you realized you needed to make a transition in your career? I mean, I think the, I always knew that I wanted to start a company in that was my dream, and I always knew that I wanted to pursue my dream. So I think when I I knew that I was going to do it was when I was ready to make that commitment. I mean, I knew that starting a company was really hard just being around lots of companies and that once you start and particularly if you're taking investors and spending other people's money, it is it is nonstop. And I think the common thread. Red with successful companies is like an obsessive founder. So I sort of like wasn't ever really didn't feel ready to do that until I was like thirty. But I think what gave me the drive or the guts to actually start something is, is the vision for violet grace. I think I think everything great starts with vision and dream, like, you know, like biggie Smalls like it was all dream. I mean that that's where it starts, and I think that in order to attract the kind of people that I want to get to work with, I knew that it was about art. I knew that it was about, ah vision and a dream world that people would wanna be a part of. So it real and it started with me for me to make that kind of commitment and completely changed my life. I had to like get really excited about what I wanted to. Killed. And how important do you think that was in giving you the drive you needed to build this? How important is for other people to find something that they're just so passionate about to give them the drive to make that take that jump? I mean, I think for me, it all starts with inspiration. So I think that I'm a big vision board person on my gosh. Yes, same. Yeah. And so to me, everything good that I've wanted to do, whether it was like, you know, redesign my bathroom or start a company or a, you know, I don't know, get the dream body I ever wanted. It always started with with a mood board of images and language, and you know, telling a story through visual assets that would help me get there because of its not real like, how do I, how can I. Articulate what I want it to be and how can I do that with other people that I need to be able to build what I wanna build. And once you do it, like once you build a brand book or a mood board or business plan, I mean, if you're not really excited to build whatever it is that you sat down to map out on paper, then you can't. I mean, then you know it's not a good idea for you. When people ask you to describe violet gray, how do you do? So, I mean, I think about violet grey as a band of editors experts in the beauty industry or entertainment industry that that curate beauty products across all categories. So I think like the future of sort of shopping is about curation, not contributing to the noise and I think starting via the gray and thinking about, okay, what problem are we going to solve for customers? And the problem that I saw as a customer was that there was just way too much. Choose from and beauty is is such a such a. As a broad word and space. So it's and it's really to me about the self esteem and sort of living the best version of yourself or living your best life. I guess what they say. So. So yeah, I mean, I think I think we describe it as, you know, we were very much in the service business and we're very much about curing for our customers and we think about everything we do with the sort of box of like, does this strengthen our relationship with our customers? Does this garner her his loyalty? So did you did you solidify the idea when you identified the problem you felt you were having in wanted to become the solution? Said the idea for violet grey. I mean, I usually give credit to Neta portray. So like at the time when I was writing the business model, I was just writing business models like I was just like, what's good busy. And I was reading something about not portait, and it was something about like combining to addictive activities like perusing a magazine and shopping, and I thought that's cool. And I and I was really interested in technology and obviously digital businesses. 'cause that was sort of seemingly the future like that was catching on. So you know, there was at the time there was nothing like Neta port in the beauty industry and as a beauty consumer. I, I've found that I mean, I thought that the the, the process of going to the store or reading something in a magazine or hearing something from your trusted best friend or whatever, and then having to go to the store and wait in line, and you know, all that stuff just felt like a problem we could solve with the internet. Did you feel like this was becoming your purpose? My purpose has. I've always been a Nate late to create. So I want I need to create like if I'm not being creative, if I'm not learning if I'm not building, if I'm not feeling vulnerable or scared or challenged, I'm not creating an and then I just feel like I'm living like a an authentic life.

"cassandra gray" Discussed on Bitch Sesh: A Real Housewives Breakdown

"If you turn in your like to now. I mean you're a great girl, but I don't like you. We're not friends. I would be eating into the of it that I like, you know the on the floor crying the fact that could hold her mine Lee didn't see just goes quietly. I mean, I just don't think we need to like drill, basically, like drill down into the details of it. I thought we were Carol. We are friends clone. John, Carol cruel. It's like in high school. When like a guy doesn't want to be seen dating a certain girl as but he is. And then in public, he's like, I hate that girl and it's like, look, Carol. You've already done the worst thing, which is show everyone your friends with Tinsley. That was the worst Inada done at least standby exactly to that was embarrassing to backtrack on. It was cruel already been embarrassed. Now you're just being cruel and Carol loves her friendship with Cassandra gray so much who's like, you know, a beauty maven, and I will say, like, I love her store. Sure. She's a class was one that said that skinny girl stuff own. So look, there's obviously validity in what she's saying, which is like, and it did make me think it's, I guess Guinea ran is a fucking old school brand. It is. It feels it's five years ago, but it feels like that's not where we're at right now, of course, but it's a brand it's out there. I don't like, yes, of course it does. And that's a really great point. But for Carol, to put that out there that she. That was so mean to take away what Beth Bethany is greatest love Bethany is greatest love is skinny, girl jeans, yes and ham, but just like she did built it. She built it with sweat and tears and sacrificing everything. She had to build skinny girls. So to have this other woman and her like laughing in a car talking about best was when she was like, you know, I did do skin and go this. That and Carroll says, I was the first person to put that skinny girl, hard hat on leakier fucking hero schedule. So disgusting. I think the end of Carol and Bethany friendship was when she anada broke up. I think she was mad about the Brigham with Adam paramount. I came to this last night. I think she was mad about the break up with Adam because even though she broke up with him, I think that I feel like she wanted more from him and he wasn't willing to give it. This is my. And so when that broke apart, she was angry, but she didn't want to put it on Adam because that's cool guy. Cougar? Carol wouldn't do that. She breaks up with guys, no big. She's friends with everybody and she took it out on Bethany. I agree. I think she completely became unhinged after this break with Adam because I think she was and I do know some girls like this, although they're typically written by men in romantic comedies or like, I just don't want all those can hang up Sam. I, I'm the one that doesn't want to get married. I love and I wear a fucking leather jacket and like that's not me y'all. Yeah. And that was what like carols brand was. But then I think she was unraveling much like her cushions on her couch and she's obviously unwrap unraveling like on our Tex chain. I mean, you know, Shira who. As you know, team team, Carol just spending. Gifts of Mariah Carey, that's that's what we're dealing with. That's what we're looking at. She's just, I want to say one of my favorite quotes in the episode was from Sonia back to red scarf guy. She goes, nobody wants to read guy. He doesn't even live in Manhattan. Listen a borough. What are we doing here? Okay. Someone else tweeted man named John e. These are pretty cool that Carol's the first person on this earth to ever finish a marathon. The marathon package to have another one was so upset and have given more due to this marathon package than we gave to any any thing else than to like. You know, brianna is like health scare. You know what I mean? Like we have given so much. I've got nothing left to give that fucking marathon. Had seven Cosmo parties for this marathon new row, two pages for Cosmo lake. You know, the look, the Carol cab giving that made me so angry and upset is when she would look down kind of a scant like to.
