"Story at the bottom of the hour. Governor Greg Abbott says local officials may be contributing to the spread of covert 19 by not enforcing his mask requirement.

I start reading I, put down Mike I'm good with that, and this one was as they say in the business, the proverbial page Turner, I was absolutely riveted by this book I. Loved It from start to finish. I couldn't put it down. Down I know it's been out for a little bit but you can always get the word out. Still this book is called hard to handle the life and death of the Black Crowes and it is written by the Black Crowes Drummer. Steve. Gorman who joins me right now Steve Pleasure to talk to you. Thanks for taking the time to do this. You know I find that. Promote books real hard like the first couple of weeks that they're out, and then some people get around to reading them late like I do. So it never hurts to give it another spin. So I appreciate you taking the time. Oh. Man. No worries. Thank you I. I, never looked at it as a You know it's not a single for radio. You know what I mean I. I don't know when I don't have my second book started yet. But not exactly like I'm hurrying through this. What now this? I. Think I got one book in May and this is it. So I'll be talking about for a while. Well, you had told me just before we started rolling the recording here that this book when you actually wrote, it was originally more than double the amount of patients that came out. Close to three times, actually, it was Well, I guess the three fifty and I turned in just under nine fifty. So yeah, two and a half times at least. And it. Was it was it was it was great. 'cause I my deadline Halloween of eighteen and I turned it in on that day. Not One day soon and I sent it in for the publisher and he wrote back immediately like how man great work you did. It congratulations. That's awesome and ten minutes later after it open, the file is next email was what the fuck is this. What's wrong with you? What are you crazy like I didn't think about things like this. For example, the cost of printing a nine hundred page book. He goes. What do you want to sell a book for eighty dollars and I was like oh? Yeah. That's how this work. It's not unlike record. Basically, I wrote a triple album out of the gate and he was like, yeah, too much too much. Well, you could have done. Well, here's the thing for me like you. So hearing that is having done a couple books myself. Not An autobiography I'm still working on that, but having done a few I know about that editing process and it could be agonizing as an author because you feel like everything you put in, there is really good and should be included and is a big part of the story. So did you leave it to them to do the tough cuts or did you have to dig into it and really do some self editing? Well Eddie to that point. I. Believe I'm the first person who said this is nine hundred and fifty pages of pure gold. Yeah Now, we'll see that's my partner. Steven Hyden the simplest way to describe what he did. With I. I wrote the songs and he produced the album and what I mean by that, we got together ahead of time and we just established the timelines together like I. We talked it through. I have a very linear chronological memory and we started with me moving to Atlanta and he just led me like breadcrumbs through the whole story and we. It was just conversations where we recorded by cowling of the the art like this happened this, the the met them and. So I had. So we put together like forty chapters of my my audio breadcrumbs for me to venues to go right the story, keep me on a on a linear path in writing. And so that was hugely important and then, but I went I wasn't wrote the thing, and then when it was all said and done as I was finishing chapters, I'd son the Stephen. and. He was aware of the fact as I was writing it this way longer than anybody's expecting and probably longer than any was gonNA. WanNa publish. So in his mind, he was I think already. Paying attention to the overall narrative arc and looking at things that don't necessarily move the story along, they might be funny or they might be crazy, but they don't. Keep the momentum going. So he had a really good overview from the minute I finished already in his head of what he thought could probably come out if need be and that was hugely important for me because when they told me go away and edit it you know the editor said I'm not gonNA edit this. You'll hate me why you guys gotTA. GotTa take the first path and so Steven Hyden was huge and that because he was able to speak to me talking me off of my perch of, but this is a blockbuster brilliant book. You know and he said, no, hang on the pitch stories are great. But four of them are all of similar. You know what? I mean. They're telling the same. In the grand scheme of things, you're kinda repeating themes and the reader doesn't need the readers. You know, give the reader credit. They know who the characters are real soon and they get your humor they get. Stuff deprecating, you don't have to keep going to those wells, blah blah blah, but he was instrumental in making me see. Where we go and I mean, it could have been edited a million different ways. But we came to this one really pretty quickly. You know I mean within a month or two. We had basically what you're reading, and then it was a matter of just the copy editing, which is where you pick every sentence apart. Make sure that the ten. Grammar. Jerk. You know I'm a real nerd for that stuff. So I I actually enjoyed. Tearing, apart, my own stream of consciousness writing and making sure the verb tenses. All matched up and all that kind of stuff.
VCs and Startups Consider HaaS Model for Consumer Devices
"All familiar with software as a service right in a way. SAS has taken over the world. For software and all sorts of enterprise and consumer settings, but even increasingly. In all consumer settings as consumers have gotten used to. You know paying for digital things. I mean you can think of Netflix. As software as a service in a way. Well, are you ready for hardware as a service? Let me give you an example. Noura is a company that makes high. End earphones the NRA phone. For example is what the company calls the world's smartest headphones. You can buy the neuro phones today for three hundred ninety nine dollars, or if you pay ninety nine dollars, ninety nine cents up front and subscribed to pay nine dollars ninety nine cents a month. You can also own the near Afon. This is not rent to own. This is subscribed to us. As long as you keep paying, you can get a new neuro phone device every twenty four months. You can get the over the air software updates that keep the device improving, and Oh, yeah, keep the device working because if you stop paying, the device shuts off. Remember when there was that whole Brouhaha about Sonos end of lifing support for their earliest speaker systems. Yeah, get ready to hear a lot more about hardware service quoting techcrunch. In a recent email exchange Duncan Turner general partner at the x accelerator, which backed Noura described Hass hardware as a service as a great way to keep in contact with your customers and up sell them on new features most importantly for startups, recurring revenue is critical for scaling business with venture capital, and we'll help appeal to a broad set of investors, Haas also often has a low churn as easier to put. Put onto long term contracts and quote the upside to consumers clear. Don't pay for everything all up front, and your freer to experiment with new devices in ways you wouldn't have been otherwise. This is especially important in a world where brick and mortar experience is increasingly rare, even before retail ground to a halt courtesy of covid nineteen. There's also a clear appeal for those who are inclined to frequently upgrade devices quote. It's providing continuous value than it should be worth paying for Y combinator partner Eric Makovsky, tells tech crunch, if not stop using it and move on, it also is more sustainable hardware. These days requires a lot of software to work and the development and maintenance of that software costs money companies that have a continuous source of revenue will be able to continue to improve their product offerings through software updates and quote in two thousand eighteen. Eighteen study analysts parks associates noted a potential hurdle, however quote while a consumer reluctance to pay subscription fees is well documented. Haas models may get more traction. Where more value can be offered at less financial risk to the consumer, the challenges to create a service bundle with clear value that consumers find attractive consumers will pay for services that they perceive as valuable and complete tasks that they cannot or prefer not to do themselves unquote. As another VC is quoted, saying in the peace and I've seen myself over the last few months, startups don't have to be talked into Haas into this new sort of business model. Providing consumers can be talked into buying in as well if there is a new hotness right now in startup pitches at the moment it is basically subscription, but for x that sort of the new uber, but for X, and it's easy to see why this is so attractive to start ups. We've spoken endlessly before about how reliable and easily anticipated revenue is provided by subscriptions. But also if you have a subscription business, consider that you could achieve scale, not at the end of some years long slog through the Dark Valley of losing, money. Imagine, you could achieve scale and essentially bootstrap your way to it off. Your own cash flows from basically day one.

He said women's right now you'll find his blowing up twenty four seven with presidents of basically every single media netware Colin you asking for content, a be interested in Konic kicking off the conversation with that e e, still getting these mainstream organizations looking for a splits programming way we are, and just had a sort of a conversation yesterday, which with a bunch of sports networks. At are represented under an umbrella of a media company, and and all still to this day all baseball comes back Major League baseball tonight in the United States. So that's a good thing. more normalcy, CPJ seeing some some driving events some some of those coming back, but still east or is the is the predominance or these days, and and it's yes, it's on twitch, Time Youtube, and and showing up on facebook gaming in elsewhere, but but now the these these I think what what has happened in the past pandemic is, that is traditional. Broadcasters potential traditional networks now Allie, the stand what he's is, and no, it's. It's a replacement for sports. that as I mentioned I think last time Jesus Alabama's back in the bottle, but also they're. They're now really sort of waking up the fact that man. We need younger audiences here we are is fifty year old. baseball demographic isn't going to is isn't going to. Be around forever. The sixty year old PGA demographics tackled mirror off forever, so so they're all waking up the fact that this is the way to communicate with an affiliate with much more youthful audience. Lousy Jesse's, and it's it's now. It's home to roost. These guys get it. They get managed, and they've got now got to figure out how to be gall whether or not.

You know this is their livelihood. This is what they do. They not Ino- broadcast. They know entertainment. They know how to do engage millions of people, and and with with the right formula with right approach. They have ever shot at this, but but thus far as we all know. This is all playing onstream in online and not -sarily other. You know we were just reflecting yesterday in this conversation about Turner. Journal riots early Turner had it right early with their first league in for car strike, and and not only do they have right, but the brands that they brought in to support it. They also had right, and that was that was four years ago. I was a long time ago. And and in the scheme of things yet they made some of their forays into in a broadcast use for in in bringing predictability around the broadcast that that's still Jack. Jamie stands up is one of the other great moments in in. In sort of democratization of of sports so so. I think I I don't think it's over for traditional media, I think. There's plenty of opportunity especially, as as now more organization comes to sports. It is getting more predictable. There are more path as two point eight to point B., or for players for events for mountain and the notion of broadcasts. Predictable broadcast is scheduled broadcasts that we all we all know. You know even if you're not. Austrailia I think you're pretty much. Know that NFL owned Sundays. At. One PM Eastern time and four PM time at eight eight thirty eastern time on Sunday. That's a sport doesn't have it, so I do think this is. Predictability. What what scheduling and programming can do for his or these?

Fox Sports debuts virtual fans for MLB live broadcast
"Night Major League Baseball became the first major sport to go ahead and broadcast games. Weird state where people are thrilled to have entertainment as we're talking, we don't know how thing rated. Crates well. I find it particularly amusing. That Fox sports has said they will debut virtual fans in the live broadcast during this shortland twenty twenty season, so the people people who watch this well as seen CGI fans brought to them. You know with Hollywood special effects and I have to say I think it's an awfully good idea. Well, the initial broadcasts with the crowd noise has been a significant improvement over just watching a silent baseball field with no fans and you can hear. Hear the BASS coaches talking to each other like that's not good, but you know they're really trudging forward now. Baseball and other team sports are in this odd situation where there is so much money on the line that they kind of have to move forward, and they're doing it in whatever way they can, and the audience at least from the preliminary number suggests they want it to the ratings for some of the preseason scrimmages in these major markets were gigantic and. And Fox reported that they had sold out ninety percent of their ad inventory for these sixty game major league baseball season that is going to happen start over the next couple of months, and this is really the big test. Because yes, there's been tennis. There's been golf, but this is the big restart of team sports, and the NBA is going to follow, and they're all living in this bubble in Orlando Florida. Trying to get the NBA restarted Major League Baseball. Baseball is trying to restart even as one of the players on the Washington nationals tested positive for covid nineteen. The day that the season was set to start, so they're going to be these setbacks, but I don't see the League's canceling their seasons because of them, there's just so much money at stake. They're going to trudge forward and the big one. Coming up is the NFL and what they're going to do. The revenue for Fox sports for Turner for ESPN. Is desperately needed I. This is billions of dollars in lost money if they can't get these games up and start selling this. Thing so it's critical and. Obviously there's pressure all around to find a way to make it work and for the NFL which is by far the biggest draw in television, the training camps are set to start and the players union has agreed tentatively to a testing procedure, but there's no agreement on whether there's going to be fans at these games, and whether the season is going to come off like it would otherwise they cancelled some of the preseason games, but whether the actual season is. Is going to happen and how that's going to look is still a big question, and for television that billions and billions of dollars in revenue in the balance, and we're already seeing several college football leagues, either pushing their seasons or cancelling them entirely, and that's going to be the next domino effect. This virus cannot get under control in the next month or two. Then you're GonNa see College. Football pretty much eliminated for the fall in my in my prediction. Some leagues will probably try to continue, but ultimately if you can't keep college players safe, then you can't have a football season so. We'll see what the NFL does, but college football is a gigantic business as well on a more frivolous note. I will just observe that Fox. Had plans in terms of the baseball game to to thin the digital crowd. If there isn't like an eight to one game, and the crowd normally would go, so at least they're keeping that part real. Wow, can they make the dodgers? Fans leave in the seventh inning. I'm sure the virtual died. Here's fans will want to get on the freeway. Justice, the real ones

CDC delays school reopening guidance
"School officials face an agonising choice in the next few weeks. How, if at all, did they send their kids back to school? To them. It's a decision about public health and about the kids who are closest to them. The president alleges. The decision is really about him. He's urging schools to open and criticizing his own administration's guidelines for opening safely and claiming without evidence that governors in school leaders want to keep schools shut to hurt him. They think it's going to be good for them politically, so they keep the schools close. No way. So we're very much going to put pressure on governors and everybody else to open the schools to get him open District leaders in Los Angeles, Houston, Atlanta and many other communities have announced they will keep teaching remotely when school resumes. NPR's Corey Turner has been covering this and joins us now, Corey Good morning. Good morning, Steve. I want to mention that the White House press secretary Kayleigh Mcenany said behind the lectern yesterday. Science should not stand in the way of reopening. Now people mock. That is if she was dismissing science. But in context, she appeared to be arguing that the science supports reopening. That's what she said. But what is the research to actually say? Yeah, That's right. The the science suggests that kid's generally don't get very sick from Cove in 19 so the administration is not far on that one. But it is less clear how easily kids spread it, especially if they're clustered in schools. But we have to remember that the realist you here is that many states are right now seeing substantial community spread of the disease, and the science is not clear that reopening schools in that context is smart or safe. As for that CDC guidance you mentioned Steve, our colleague, Franco Ordo. Nia's reported last night that the agency is going to delay some new school reopening documents, although it's a little confusing here because CDC has said these documents are not a revision or a softening of the old guidance that President Trump doesn't like, just sort of an elaboration. Well, that's right. Because the president criticized the guidelines to toughen. The CDC essentially said Too bad the science is what it is these guidelines so what would make the guidelines contentious? I mean, some of them are really tough having kids where face coverings, staggering school schedules, But maybe the hardest is keeping kids six feet apart in the classroom, you know, do the math to do that you a have to divide kids into smaller classroom groups. B. Find more classroom space and see find more teachers on that stuff, And that's why some places like New York City say. They're going to have to do a hybrid schedule, bringing some kids in some of the time What our various school superintendents saying as they make these decisions, So they're saying that you know, in spite of President Trump trying to sideline the CDC, they're still very much working with and listening to local, state and federal public health officials and Levet. She heads the savanna Chatham County public schools in Georgia. She told me she's constantly checking in with the head of her public health department and looking over daily infection data for her community. Every day and look at the numbers and I'm like, Please, Please let him go down. Please let him go down and they're not going down. Which is why Levet says her hardest day in this pandemic was not when Georgia closed her school's back in March. I was just last week when looking at the numbers, she decided there was just no way for her to fully reopen at roughly the same time is when President Trump began his campaign to pressure school leaders into quickly reopening Accusing them of not doing what's best for kids. Anyone out there who's questioning whether not educated or at home and not doing the work that I young people need us to be doing the wrong. That's Louvel Brown, He's head of the Ithaca City School district in Ithaca, New York, were working even more now, and we can't wait to get these babies back in our spaces. Superintendents do at least share President Trump's sense of urgency. It is better. To have kids back in school every day. Paul Imhoff is the superintendent of Upper Arlington schools near Columbus, Ohio. All of us want that all of us are anxious for that. But then in half pauses as soon as it's safe, Michael Ina hosta who runs the Dallas Independent School District puts it this way. Sometimes parents forgive us if we commit educational malpractice. They will never forgive us if we let something happen to their Children, So what does it mean to open schools safely? Many school leaders are following. CDC is recommendation to space desks six feet apart, and Brown says that's forcing him to get creative will use everyone about spaces. We hope to be able to get outside and you those faces as well. But I still don't think we can get all of our young people in school at the same time in Dallas. Michael in a hostess says. We think we can have a pretty safe learning about him. But we're gonna have mask We're goingto have face shields. We're going to have a Plexiglas in the classroom. The plexiglass. He's Says, helps him fit more students into each classroom. Even with that, though, Dallas County is seeing substantial community spread of the disease. So in a hostess says he wants to delay the start of school by several weeks. Chad guest in the head of the Phoenix Union High School District, says this pandemic is forcing educators to become epidemiologists. We were spending so much time studying Respiratory droplets and measuring classrooms and how many kids fit on a bus and how to transition thousands of kids between periods that we lost track of the core of our work. And that core guest in says is teaching and learning. So Steve with infection rates skyrocketing in Arizona to guest in recently announced that for now, at least all of his students are going to keep learning remotely. And that way, he says he and his staff Khun Get back to focusing on you know how to be a great school. Well, sounds like the bottom line is that many schools maybe even most schools will not open on time in August of the start of September. At least not fully know. I think there's just too much uncertainty, especially with infection rates rising again in so many places. It's also worth noting, though, that several recent national polls show a majority of parents Really opposed schools rushing to reopen two parents are on the side of schools. In many places. I even heard from the superintendent in Ithaca, where infection rates are pretty low, Super intown Superintendent Brown told me. You know the key to everyone being able to return to school there. Really boils down to one word, vaccine them. And if you have different schools, making different decisions in different areas, you have parents looking around and saying, Wait a minute. What are we supposed to do here and wanting to be conscious with their own kids, right? Absolutely. I mean, it gets back to the same old line I've heard every day since covering schools, which is their controlled locally. Cory, Thanks for your work. Thank you. Steve, NPR's education
New York returns the favor, helps Houston open two new COVID-19 testing sites
"Has had record infections and deaths they locked down is the last thing that we need in the state of Texas. So Republican Governor Greg Abbott is again urging people to abide by his mask requirement. He's getting some help from New York. The state hardest hit back when all this started setting up testing sites in Houston. Fox's Tani jpowers live here in New York. Save the two new testing science or in minority communities in Houston, hard hit by covert 19 and they'll provide 1000 test a day. For the next two weeks, New York has sent PP and more than 20 healthcare workers to Houston. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner expressed his thanks that wait, for example, on us to call you on. You all have reached out to us in the city of Houston. Why should I want to thank you for your teams that are already on the ground, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said. The state is just returning the favour.

"Fallen out one end all. It's the rollercoaster. Okay on that desperate note. Jack's visits LISA TO QUOTE UNQUOTE. Ask for his job back ground. Let's dissect this 'cause you were just talking about it. Does Bravo expect us to believe? Jackson needs his bartending job. Yeah and they tried to justify by saying well. I used the money I inherited for the ring which goes all B. S. No way it so convenient like he. He didn't have to ask his job back when they were on hiatus night. Only when lease VAN PUMPS LIT? You know the ones are active outside. The camera crew is present. It's so silly. I mean you know these shows. I think they'd earn a lot more respect. If we just went you know they were just real it up front like like. He's back behind the Bar Jack. We don't even need a description Jackson's here for our for pride that is it just. I don't need all this Lisa. Vander pump screen time either insulting. They're they're like they don't trust our intelligence and maybe they maybe I just think too highly of this audience that I'm part of. I don't know it's like what call van rules but I hate that. They make the moral authority on everything. They all come and kiss the ring and apologized to her. You know it and and I talked about grants rants by the PODCAST That what's her face. The Billy Lee She is supposed to do the same thing. She's supposed to comment. Apologize to Lisa. You know come on. I'm tired many times. Came about the apologies. Solely right no well. What would the show be without? Jack's that's what I started thinking is. What would the show be without? It would be different. It might not might not be great for them but beyond that I was watching this scene and I wasn't thinking like Oh. Is she going to give him his job back? Because shocker she does. I was thinking they deserve an academy award. These people are more convincing to me than the majority of the actors that I see you know on the big screen. Jack was very good in that scene. I will say he sold. He did I don't I don't buy the context of what he's like. I know all these shows are made. He Looks. He looks concerned to ask is fidgety. Like Okay. He took a class good for him right okay. Speaking of how Bravo kind of treats us like idiots now. I love how Bravo was getting all experimental with this eighties. Sitcom sort of seeing that. You said you really liked. I didn't hate it. They threw in the gag laughs. The cheesy music the credits. They're like these idiots will watch anything. We give them. Oh yeah you know what it is? I think it's because they did a little montage last season with the Bachelorette party or whatever they did and they Riano loved Jerry member. She tweeted it or whatever she tells me how much loved teaching so I think. Now get more buzz in the show. They can get away with it. It's not that serious you know. I think that they are going to try to do. More of these. Edit breaks right. I think it's kind of fun. It's almost like a little pop up video cheesy but you know as roles. Yeah it's poking fun at itself which I appreciate. It made me realize when they were doing that rolling through the credits. This fake show that they were talking about they. They put Jason Kao Cheer. Whatever his name is played by. Jack's Taylor wonder whatever happened to Jason. I thought we were calling him. Jason Right Yeah. We're going to happen to him. We'll have to see when they do the wedding You know how what names they will be the Real tell-tale. Maybe maybe when they do the divorce then see that. Jason Comeback Okay and you already brought it up but I had written. Why are we still listening to good as gold because now it's now honestly gets on Apple? How Apple Music? I mean that is just like that is a huff song to sit through. I mean it's three minutes. That's a tough one right totally okay. So the moment we've all been waiting for Kristen. Arrives with hope and she is come to confront James. This is why we watched the show for this amazing detective work and it was good. I gotta give her that. My favorite part of the entire episode though was Jackson's reaction to James. Whenever James is being confronted by Raquel who just found out that he cheated as Jack saying a lot of girls did accuse me of cheating and they were all true. Yeah I I. I laughed out. Loud that yeah. It's hard to believe. James Raquel is the only one left. I WANNA point out that girl. Hope I mean what a what a fool talk about an idiot. She comes on the show only to be able to expose herself asleep with someone else's boyfriend and the girl. Racal's says I thought we were friends. This was a really lousy thing to do. And she's like I know it was terrible. I this stupid thing like she got nothing out of being on. I'm sure maybe some followers which I know people bend over backwards and then you get some followers on instagram. But like as far as character goes I guess. She has no morals because she came in. She admitted she had a terrible thing left. I mean talk about a lousy person. Bright well not to mention the act itself was obviously awful. But you're totally right. You know these people you probably get promises of. Oh you're going to become the next big thing you know. Roll jump like that so unsaid. I had a recurring role. Better you know better. You wouldn't she's gotTA BE DUMB. She's just got to be slow. Yeah this girl. Yeah definitely and we're Kelly. I don't know why she's in such denial of this. Because later we jumped over to sing wish. After she found out she was telling people. Ask Me like are you aware of this? You care about this. So apparently this has gone on like she's being approached on the regular. I'd be girl. Do you know you're on camera and everyone is looking at you decide. I I mean Joe. Right well beyond that rock who has clearly whenever they did. They did that montage of the number of times that she's been approached by other women who have hard evidence of his wrongdoing. I it's hard to feel bad for her. She seems like a sweet girl right. Biggest mistakes she could have ever done was move in with him. Oh why would she ever do that? I mean she just graduated college so she's clearly very young. Like why would you put yourself in a situation like that complicates things so much like I? Did she see it future with this guy? I mean come on. I mean who knows so so the fight moves into the parking lot and you know from this shows history win. The fight moves into the parking lot. That's where the shit really goes down right. It's that goddamn pardon invited. They hang out if I am thirty. Five hanging out thirty hanging out in a parking lot having a cigarette. Shoot ME IN THE FACE. So things escalate. We'll leave it at that James Though. There's this moment where he is insulting. Katie's weight and it's just not a good look right by this. I want your input on this. The way in which he's insulting Katie's weight and then the way he kind of flicked his cigarette. Very Sassy came off really gay. Yeah Yeah I mean this Galore. His whole looked underwear. Peaking Ou- like it's like it is like questionable. I don't believe that he is like I. Totally see people feel that way. I beat I. Yeah in like this little bit cheek comments to her. I like I like Oh Katie. Literally at least in part to his face didn't take any of it seriously laughing at him. Which is was what you should do. Consider the source you know what? I mean like bright jerk. It made me like her more and I don't normally like to insinuate things like that by the way but I do have to wonder because there were these rumors about his old gay friend. And then you know I've definitely met these sort of mischievous troublemaker. Asshole types just seemed to have a lot of pent up rage possibly because some deep seated homo erotic feelings. I don't know just saying especially no way a lot of Straight women that I'm friends with around here feel like there are a lot of like by guys like every like it's like a token even I was in New York and they're like Oh please. I can't say in La Everyone's by so like you never really know I don't really know if I believe it especially these with girl after girl but I mean again. I'm not the business of outing. Anyone but yeah moment. They're like you know it was like okay. It was silly. Sit Down with silly. I don't know time will tell we'll have. We have a lot to look forward to especially from the preview that we just got of the next episode Grad. Thanks so much for joining me. We have so much stuff we I think we covered all the news.

"I mean the fuck up very has visited us again. This deuce Brag chimed in about this whole Kevin Hart situation which. I'm sure you're going to talk about on your podcast. You know the one where Kevin Hart lost the job hosting the Academy Awards because he posted something homophobic years ago about how his son came home trying to play with his daughter's dollhouse or something like that he was going to react with physical violence. Okay not cool That's just my opinion. Well okay. Jim Are Cheesy tweeted about it and said quote no straight male wants his son to be gay. A gay son is a curse that takes away your family. Traditions and heritage. Lgbtq is a parent's nightmare that destroys families and ruins holidays like Christmas. Kevin Hart we support you end quote. Okay grant. What do you have to say about this one? Well you know what's a curse and takes away family? Tradition and destroys families is ignorance and intolerance. And that's exactly what he is what he did You know he's doing it. He's following the trump era that we're in. He's looking for attention he is like why would he you know he's such as such macho man you know. Why would such a family man feel the need to have to go on twitter and retweets somewhat and write that in response to it and endorse it? I mean really. It's so stupid you know I. My biggest regret is that we had him on. When I was on after buzz for the real housewives of New Jersey during that season we had them call in and I did. I did not know that he was a homophobe. I didn't know that he was a real like tea party. Republican nut But whatever he talked about a lot of things he gave us some dirt. I don't know what was true. It wasn't it was years ago. Who Cares but you know we follow each other and we would DM. This is way back when I when I saw this tweet that you're referring to. I went to twitter to follow. I had already on followed him. I remember it sure was something trump or immigrant related that I didn't agree with and I don't want to be associated with anybody like that so I hate in a way that I did have an interview with him. It was on a panel years back. Because that's not someone I want on my resume you know to be associated with. I mean the whole thing is uncalled for gusting ignorant. Yeah no I totally agree. Here's my feeling dot protest too much. I mean why are you chiming in about this if you are secure with yourself? There's no reason to say any of this and I was just shocked by it because I didn't like you and you're very much more personal dealings with him. I didn't get that vibe from him. You know I thought maybe it was just on a canvas next to the other ridiculousness that was real housewives of New Jersey. At that time it looked. He looked more normal than anyone. But seeing this. It's like wow. He's really extreme. I don't know I always thought he was stupid but this was just occasion. He used that Hashtag. Like liberalism is a curse that yeah at what was it. Loo- liberalism is a joke. Or something like that. Okay yeah I mean that just goes right there like the type of person we're dealing with? I mean it's one of those people that are just you know they're living in the ancient times and you know they're they're resistant to any type of change of progression right and I really truly hope that you know whether know he has to two or three children. I hope You know none of them you know feel burned from that if the going through anything in their life personally because to be bother to children and just say that. Put that out publicly. I mean you can't take that back right. Well that's the other question that I have is like. Why are people who are in the public putting out these statements? This is the kind of suffering career ending. It's the kind of stuff it's just. It's dangerous territory private about it. It's it's wild. It's why is new boss? He's on boss and he's he's looks up to trump. I mean He. That's the role model that we have. I mean that's that's what's happening online all over the place. These people are now feeling validated. To say what they want any ignorant crap they want because they feel validate. It's terrible but anyway that's view not very high via another. It's a whole `nother show but we. I think it was important to discuss here. Because we definitely are not condoning it all right moving on. I'm glad you brought it up. Thank you okay. Daniel molins This is also. This is a mess. the Ninety Day Fiance Star was at risk of losing her home until she asked for. Five thousand dollars in crowdfunding She or maybe it was her friends. Set it up for her like a gofundme page and she got it she got the five grand and she sent out a message to fans and she thinks the audience for helping her out. I'm just curious how we feel about this. 'cause I'm I feel one of two ways about it what about you? I don't have any loyalty to her. Like I mean I. I saw her on the show and the radio. And it's like I don't feel like you know like I would like you know. I'm happy for her either way. I do believe that a friend did not set this up for her You know why. Why would they? What are they gonNA get out of it? I mean it's it's exclusively benefit a her and her home. I mean it has to be a new low when you can't afford to pay your bills and I believe that the The and. I know everyone goes through things and she had a career. She lost her. Yes she wa- she had her hours cut back at work. Is that right? Yeah but still though. That's something that you deal with privately. I mean you know never would I even think to you and put anything like that on twitter? Nevermind ask for money. I don't ask for anything and I wouldn't never and I would never ask anyone for money specifically and it's just it's not a thing but it's a new low and I read the article that you sent me a new low in comparison to how she acted on ninety day. Fiance General for reality stars like this. This is the new thing her. I don't think personally it has to be a new low and you have to pay bills using a support yourself. I want one thing I wanted to say. I read the article and she's trying to save a trailer lot. And you know she only always the figure five thousand dollars right. Yeah and I think it's a rental by the way I don't even think it's like I don't think it's owning this thing. I was at five thousand dollars deep like it seems like you would have been evicted like the the rent on. The trailer cannot be expensive now. And that's something that's what I want to say with. This is like imagine being her age. You know she's not you know. I think maybe a lot of her earning years maybe behind her at this point and like you know like not having any money to even be able to live. It's it's a sad situation. It truly is a low To not have anything in the bank spending money on I probably men online. Who knows guess but true? Here's kind of a different perspective. A lot of people gave her heat for it but I kind of feel like well then. Don't donate like let her live. Okay Oh can we cannot expect people on ninety eight to be as savvy as somebody on shark tank and use the show as an opportunity to like pull promote an idea that they've been keeping in their back pocket. Would that be what I did if I was going to be on a reality show one hundred percent but I think we're our expectations might be a little high the other side of the coin? Yes I think. Don't donate to her campaign but she probably was like shucks. I had such an opportunity and a platform to do something. Maybe I'll just do a gofundme campaign it be like a last. Hurrah who knows? It's too bad you WANNA leverage from time on that. Show for something or anything out when you're busy let's show you. She's got her eye on the prize or some some full. I don't know but yeah there's this kind of crazy I mean I. I don't know I would save face but then I have to remember. People don't really care they just want the cash you know that's it was you've got nothing to lose at this point so why that's true. She should've asked for a lot more that she I bet she regrets not asking bet she jazz. They'll be around to put my money on it Okay we're talking about somebody who doesn't have money problems. Lisa Vander pump. Apparently and I just thought this was some interesting news. Lisa van doesn't own a credit card hours this even possible and when eighteen grant I liked that it was reported Fox News. I mean you out there. I have a credit card. Here's what I use it for our flights and hotels. I really I can actually and I you know I don't enjoy his Vanna pump. I rant about her all the time. I have no no interest. At least I can relate. I remember that Yeah. I pay through my my debit card and do cash for everything. I will put the big stuff like that on flights and hotels. And which really isn't that big but I will do that just to earn some type of cash back which is the interest rate is so damn low. I make nothing so I can almost kind of relate to her with this but I don't have banner pump money but what I do think about is the points that she's losing out on. I mean you know office somebody being. She's really missing out. You know I guess it right ours. She's been car. Fancy clothes makes strips. I mean you know imagine the points. I know I should actually. I should get her a credit card from my line. That's just in her name. I should get her a card. That's in her. Let her borrow it. And I'll just send her a bill or I'll help her pay. Here's this kind of sparked my curiosity and I looked it up. Grant she is worth seventy five million dollars. Please tell me where the fuck does that money come from? I cannot wrap my head around it. Well I mean I know. She came in with a lot of money from her overseas ventures that she started their husband the restaurants. I see how she can get to that level. We know the housewives. They've talked about the pay that they make the higher end but not that hundred K. A season is still does not add up to seventy five million dollars. I heard more was like almost a million because they had to keep around nine million dollars for doing nothing on a reality show for years after year. I mean you know it's good for her. She Must Invest Well. I. I'm curious what she is partners with or with you know. It seems strange to me. And here's why because because I started thinking about other restaurant tours right Wolfgang puck probably the most famous of them all right. He obviously started out at SPAGO in Beverly Hills. And then but now he's in. He has chain restaurants all over the place. Wolfgang puck express or whatever it's called so he's been his name. There's packaged foods that are in every grocery store. He is worth seventy five million dollars like it does make sense. How is Lisa Banner Pump? She has three restaurants in. La What do they have? I don't get it. I do not yet. Isn't she a partner in that restaurant so I don't think she'll outright so there's that so it's already like a two and a half. Wow I really can't figure it out something going on here. There's something going on. Maybe Ken came into the picture with a bunch of money but she claims article that they keep their money separate which I think is smart. You know I mean they've got plenty of it. Who Cares at a white you know but like I think it's smart belly? She's independent with that. My tickets a good thing. You know that way. She knows like me like I know. Exactly what's in my account? So that's how she manages our money. It's worked for her. I don't know it's still a mystery amid cracked that case all right moving on last but not least the hills specifically justin bobby from the hills. So the hills reboot called New Beginnings..

"To people are going to use as a weapon against me. When it's I gotta set the sky is purple. That's what they'd be using a weapon against three. This just doesn't matter what I say they're going to twist it into something to target me. And why would you not have your plan plan totally backfired? I didn't really understand it from the beginning. By the way do you get with? The plan was to disprove. She has an issue. She's going to do the very thing she's being accused of. That was kind of bizarre. Mensa right there. Okay okay. Well here's here's another question. There is a lot of talk about dallasite and when Deandra and I spoke she talked about being a debutante. And here's what I wanted. Yeah Dallas royalty she all she did admit Dallas Texas kind of nouveau riche. So to speak and it was all kind of fully not. Alec has a lot of old oil and gas. I think showing just comparing it to like the deep south that that Texas happened a little later. But here's my question. It's like okay if you WANNA run around acting like you're pooping K. Cups okay. So what does someone like? Deandra or Cameron really risk. That's what I think. A lot of us are confused about like what what's going to happen. She won't get invited to the parties and they'll talk about her which is what they already do anyway. Okay all right. But but it's not a risk for you per se and is it just because of the cachet of their name or if It embarrasses a certain fraction of the family that occupies. Simmons last name for sure I mean but if I had to worry about what my family was doing especially my mom and whether it was going to affect my reputation would be in trouble and beaver creek like you know. It seemed like they were just trying to have fun albeit it was immature and I'm personally not that into potty humor myself. I drank the freaking out of her front. So that's where the problem is for me. I mean do I think she should have done it now? Because I think it's GonNa make her her. It's GONNA create. How for her and as someone who considered her myself her friend. I would want to guide her into things that wouldn't make her life more difficult but make her life easier here you. That was my only concern. Well and it looks like you're having fun and I got to say this. It looks like when when you were it. Looks like whenever you're around Deandre Brandy? You do have fun with them. Is there any chance that you guys can move past it all always? There's always hope. Grandmother said never let go favorite Bible verse twenty-five. I've pitched my tent Lonzo. Here's to hope. I helped hope comes with a bottle of champagne. Okay so the last episode was a doozy. What do we have to look forward to this week? What's going on in this next episode? Roundtable is going to be fire where he got done watching Round soon to write my blog yet but I I will say this Some some stuff happens and and do something you can't. Have you ever heard like you know when someone said Oh? My my dad caught me smoking. A pack of cigarettes in my dad caught me smoking a cigarette so we made me smoke the whole pack to teach me a lot to me only with a bottle of Jack Daniels on a school trip. Okay now. I'm just going to say that. I use that technique in this week's episode. Okay okay. I'm done. I'm done fighting with them. I'm now going to do the lesson of teaching you a lesson so that you stop messing with me are you talking about capturing a video of a naked. Dubar no like Oh my God you guys jumped and breaking forty degree water This was like seriously I wanted them to be like. Oh my God look how cold and look when it came out like you screen. I mean it was funny. It wasn't meant to be rude and by the way you know there's a very big cameras they're capturing it to. I heard that it was less than impressive. That's what I heard. Yeah it was a different test. And then she was like you know and she was like well you know we got a. Blur. No Actually. We didn't because when we were prepping for the reunion we got the unlearn cut. Have you had nightmares since or no but my hand went so fast in front of my computer screen? I cannot even not wait. Are you telling me you got the UN blurred footage lard injuries if slips into the wrong hands? That is not my problem because I go. You know what it normally helps people's careers there. There is that so. I don't think it's going to help anybody's career that I saw there naked off so you guys just film the Reunion. I just want to know. Do the hands come out out there under control. Did you bring your Meditation Bell? Yes bank that little sucker not. I'm sure you could hear it all through the entire studio. I'm surprised they didn't hear me in Jersey Bang in that ball. I bet you needed to dare enough with the serious stuff. I have a few fun questions for you including some from fans right if you had to be stuck on an island with any other housewife from any season or city. Who would it be after tough one? I think I would probably choose someone who would enter. I think probably easy and fun and like if monkeys attacked us we were totally attack back and I think that'd be fun.

That richest bought me. I mean now. That's that's my thing I had your back so don't worry about that and the last thing was that you were turning into Melissa which I personally thought was a compliment. I think that sounds fabulous costume. Lawler would make a good Melissa. Anyway let me let me ask you. Did you ever think an eighty year old woman could throw such shade? Your mom is just a a one of a kind of a one of a kind. The reality is also like you know. I think a lot of people like your mom. You know they they have a heart for they see the person who's struggling the most and right now that definitely as Deandra and you know you want US support the underdog and I get that but you know this underdog bites so. Be careful what you support. I'm GonNa let her know and you can turn on a dime. I wouldn't be if tomorrow's I opening. Okay well we can't wait to see. I did tell my mom. She better sleep with one eye open. You know she lives in Texas too so she just making it. Easy cannot be held responsible for what comes out of that woman's mouth. Okay I hear Ya. Sometimes I can't help be held responsible for what comes out of my mouth. I hear you. I feel like we need to start a new show called the real gangster granny's of Bravo. Tv It'll be prissy. How all Mama D Patricia Cultural Mercedes Mom Vida from the Shahs of sunset the Old Lady Gang from Atlanta. Exactly exactly someone's GonNa kick you imagine what you would learn out bitches.

Relax and be like you'll a woman can't keep your hands. You know what I told her by the way I said. I wish I was a kept woman who she actually. Okay sounds like an easy life. Okay Leeann well. It's been a while before the taste of reality podcast ever existed Leeann. I sat down for a little one on one interview. And I'M GONNA repose that transcript for on this podcast page for everyone to go back and read. It's actually really interesting to see how things have changed. It was actually one of my favorite interviews because it was back when the show was just getting started. And you were so candid about the experience and how you were just kind of rolling with the punches. A lot of thought that Dallas was going to be asleep or season when it was first announced and here. We are three seasons later. And it's one of our favorites plugging along. Are You surprised? Totally one hundred percent who knew that people would find our lives so interesting interesting. You told in touch magazine that the show wouldn't exist without you and I'm not disagreeing with you at all. Wait a minute. Where was that in quotes. It was that common in close. Aren't they say? Oh maybe they said it. But you didn't deny okay all right all right. It's not enclosed. You CAN'T ATTACK OKAY. All right fine I'll give you that Do you do you struggle without me. That's for Damn sure okay. Well there we go go for moment to Leigh Ann's neck liens hands shut out this year. I don't feel like it's a hand one neck. Ring that bell to keep those hands obey do that. Ball dented so one of the things you mentioned in our first interview was how you weren't trying to pedal your wares or put your name on any clothes okay. But this season we saw you kick off an interesting twist on fashion. What's with the change of heart and tell us all about it well. I'm not really trying to peddle my wares it. You really look at the dress for what it is it perfectly in line with what. My brand is which is always trying to help someone. This dress is about trying to make sure that women who can't afford one hundred and seventy five dresses can buy one dress. And now they have the ability to have one hundred and seventy five dresses without. You know it's like yeah it's like how do you make your dollars go further and this is how you do it with every single time. I create a new set of attachments. You're extending the longevity of the dress so you this is address. That goes from a simple little dress to an evening Gal. That's really smart. You know. Yeah no that's smart so this was This was something that I've had migraine for probably fifteen years and I just you know came across the sketch this year and I just thought you know what now I have enough behind me in my bank account all these other things that I feel like. Maybe let's try to do this and see what happens and you know listen. I basically sketched a triangle and gave it to the girl manufacturers line. I was like this is a Cape Sleeve. And she was like this is a triangle. And I'm like yes I know. Now make it look good so I mean I'm not saying I'm like some genius stashes designer saying listen. I'm just trying to help women 'cause if you find one dress that looks good on you and you could wear it more than one time. That's a that's a gold mine totally okay. That's what that's what I feel like. The stresses hopefully will be two women and people are loving it and okay and I'm no grounds fashion expert. Okay but I like it because this is totally a guys approach to fashion because a of guys have a ton of different clothes but tend to gravitate toward the same outfit every day with just a few minor changes to really switch things up and it just keeps trying women simple and clean and easy. I like it. I think it's really interesting. Well thank you and what I love about. It is up bandaged type based dress so it's like wearing ten times thanks. Oh so it's super comfy keeps it all comfy hold you in and makes you look anything from daytime fabulous to eating elegant? Okay when is? When is the men's land coming out?

You are blonde and you have blue eyes. My siblings are blonde haired blue eyed and I am dark skinned with Brown hair and eyes and I want you to tell me right here and right now who is my father. And what was the milk? Man's name well. I don't know who your father is. I at least you're being honest now. Okay that's right. I think you are not the only brown hair brown ad and I don't see anybody else in the family looking quite like me again. Thanks for the genetics. If they really are yours but looking at this twenty three and me thing it shows we don't have anything. We have no relation to anyone in Denmark but seventeen percent Iberian. I mean how do you explain that we're part Spanish? I don't Explain that you'd have to ask my great great great Ben. I don't know about that. I think you might be the shady one and the results of that test determined. That was a lie We need to go on. Maury. That's Ripe. We do need to go on my. I think that would be wonderful. I would just be so happy for all of my friends to know that I was going to do that. All right next up de host a cooking class and Deandra is hoping to use it as an opportunity to fix her friendship with Leeann. Mom Cooking is apparently very important to these ladies guarantee. I'm a better cook any. Actually I do not disagree with you and I would be willing to put one of your dishes up against Mama Ds. Okay but I want you to fill in the blank here. D- says that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach and Leeann says a way to a man's heart is through blank. I'll have to think on that one. Do you remember yes I do? I don't want to say that something you can get. Don't remember the exact words something you could maybe get around up. Maybe okay all right. So Cameron shows up with her mother-in-law. Jimmy West Scott who is apparently the socialite in Dallas. Right and she of am. I wrong here okay. I'm just going to say. She looks like that. Cat Lady Jocelyn Wildenstein. Do you know who I'm talking about. Yes I do and yes she does what is up with this style of plastic surgery I don't know but it is pitiful. Why do all these people try to look like the cowardly line? That's right. I know it's like this weird I it's like they flip through a book and the find a book of Feline Expressions to choose from and they all end up looking like cats. I don't get it at all and looked ants because their faces are frozen from talked. No I don't think I have had plenty of Bo talks and I don't think I'm looking catlike if anything in making friends and bad plastic surgery yes I think that that's it. It's like fillers or something I don't know it's a mess anyway. All right Deandra friendship with brandy comes into question here and it feels a little premeditated. Don't you think yes okay? What's your take on this situation? Cameron and Jimmy her step mom and Leeann giving her a hard time with brandy. What's what's your take on the situation because none of them like brandy and so. They've all decided that she is not a to their standard water. Went after right. Well what does all this business about being in society is correct? Me If I'm wrong but when you think of Dallas do you think of socialites and you know really like a posh lifestyle I don't know I don't I don't either. I mean I have lots of relatives in Dallas and it's not like that right no I mean I don't care what you say. Texas is not that old. I mean in comparison to the south like the real south. It is not not old and I don't understand. It's all nouveau riche. To me I don't know yeah all right well later. Deandra Calls Cameron out there at the art release of the wall. You know her husband took the photograph and Deandra calls out for the whole situation. Feeling like a set up and Cameron says well. Jimmy is not someone you want to. Piss off okay. It sounded like I don't think yes. Yes okay what advice would you? What advice would you give to Deandra? I tell her nor them and be friends with Brandy. My Gosh who wants to be friends with Kamran early and either one. I know they're going to hold you to these like really high standards but one thing is really confusing too because Leeann has a real foul mouth. And Sodas Cameron actually. She's standing outside and she goes. She's acting like an effing bitch and I just don't get it. Deandre seems to be the only one who's really composed. The whole thing is really confusing to me. But that being said the next episode looks like it's going to be a lot more entertaining. Don't you think yes? I think it's going to be things are going forward to it. That's where things are. GonNa get riled up. Leeann is talking about bringing her hands again. I don't know you probably this. But she's got these infamous hands they're just hand and yes deandra and Leon almost come to blows in this episode and then we see carry heading off to Denmark to meet her long lost family.

"Determination? I wanted to whoop it up and you weren't in the military before now. Never been here before. Never how did you can work up this way? I'm so confused. I'm soaking wet.

I can't believe I met you today. And I feel like we go back for centuries you are my writer Dai forever. This is my blood.

I have got lines put to memory that. We're going to be throwing plates everything alright. I'm so glad that you drove out. We'll have to do an event in Vegas. Are you here with Andrea? I'm obsessed with his girl. She just asked me if her eyelashes were still on. They are she's about ask. She showed up a little late and did the course in like twenty minutes. What the hell was that move? That did off of the thing shirt made me do it. Well he obviously you were a bad ass. Where did you come from? I'm actually from Pennsylvania.

So second pros. Excuse me we're all sweaty and disgusting. And she came down like gracefully like a swine. It was ridiculous. And you're kind of soissons. That's exactly what you were all right. You guys this is half of the reason why we're all here. Janney Pellegrino came. I mean if if not just do the ropes course just to meet Danny. That's why everyone is here. Danny you kicked us. How do you feel after the course? I'm wet after that introduction. He's not kidding. It was so fun I had the best time. I'm so thankful that you organize this whole thing and we. It was so much. Money was also way more terrifying than that. It'd be I gave them all shit I was like. How did they wanted to quit? And they were screaming at the top of the roof sports announced. It's actually really. It was terrifying like not even like I five minutes terrifying and twenty minutes later. You have your parents and you're on your way down. No I totally honestly. I'm like you said you're still here joke but it was. It was scary up there. It was higher than I thought it'd be and I'll say we didn't really know where to go.

One hundred percent okay. Cool what do you think about Orange County this season? Are you loving hating it? Who why where? I'm really bored by it. But this week.

And then they show preview for next week and I'm like I'm in so I WANNA give it up but I can't give it up I will never give it up. I love it even though he does that. Make Sense I one hundred percent agreed. What do you think about the new girls? I think they're I feel like they're fine. My problem is so much with the new girls that so much as I'm sure but my problem is their integration into the group. It feels like they're two separate right. Now Yeah and so I feel like the new girls will be really really great once. They're integrated properly with the old girls right. That's Orange County. It's total sorority. It's like you. GotTa be harassed. And what's the word you've gotTA BE? You gotta be hazing in Orange. County is Hayes. We've got too much. I think emily and Jean are both good and they will be good. They have a lot of potential. One hundred percent agree while I can't wait to see the rest of the season hopefully livens up a little bit either way. We had a great time today. And I'm so glad that you can make for doing this dry speech so we have finally made it to the quiet woman. I'm about to play a small clip from Denny. Pellegrino's live interviews.

"I have all those wonderful plans and Bettina goals that I love so much but I also have the actives that make the products work because you can make you know natural green whatever products all day long. But if they don't work people are not gonNA keep using them. Because I always say this. Every woman who is into skin care and anti-aging has that drawer either a thousand dollars for a ten thousand dollars for that. They have in their home because they used a product for junk drawer or a month or two months and then doesn't work they throw it in the graveyard in that drawer and start over again. And I didn't want to be that person so I just came back from Beauty Shorewood Las Vegas now. Speaking on sustainability we work with many companies that practice sustainability and agriculture harvesting or microfinancing when we actually harvest aloe we just harvest the big leagues and we leave the little cuss about way. We are protecting the Environment. Same thing with a lot of my different flowering plants like characterised. We do the same thing. We don't destroy the land. Destroy the environment and we employ local villagers in Africa. Where a lot of my book cannibals come from two then you know they have. They have a way to make a living and that's something that they didn't have before so that's a win win for everybody. Now the actives I use every active is not a hundred percent. Okay like this is certified green because the actors are what make the product work. But I don't give anybody. There's no ingredients in my products that are toxic. That would hurt anybody labs. I work with have some the biggest skin hair products in the world. Best selling products on KABC in Hsen. They're never gonNA make anything is dangerous and I've been studying for longtime entrust me as the only woman family that has not had cancer. I'm very keenly aware of what I put on my skin. Tone my body. And what it inside my body do you? Can you attribute maybe one of the reasons why you haven't had skin cancer and are one of the only women in your family to not as being Something to do with ultimate living or your line and what. Everybody has had breast cancer so I can attribute my health and I mean I hope I keep it. There's there's nothing you can do about environmental exposure and certainly I've been exposed to more than anyone in my family because of my travels because when you get these third countries you're just eat inhaling pollutants all the time but I do believe that because I tend to eat pretty healthy and I exercise and I have really studied the science behind things like your blood type and then getting tested about foods that I'm allergic to in allergens. I think a lot of it has to do with environment in allergens in eating things that just for your body or not a good fit for me. I know that yes. I love bread and all those kinds of things that I don't really eat much because it's not something that I'm not allergic to wheat but I'm allergic to yeast. You'll be here is all these different things. You gotta be real careful eggs. I was eating eggs every day for years because my trainer was one in there do that while I was forty pounds. Heavier cut out the eggs. I lost almost forty pounds really you. You were forty pounds heavier than you are now. Yeah because you didn't know I had the trainer and it was following. I was doing Way Protein and eggs and all these things that I was allergic to way and it was allergic to eggs. How did you? How did you figure that out? By the way I struggled and I went to all these holistic doctors in why can't lose weight why I mean I love to eat. Obviously but at same time I was I would always be on strict regimens with trainers and things in that did my high protein low carbon that whole thing let testing it was every day. I had eggs everywhere had protein powder I have. It was cranberries pineapple. Always in my shakes your friends weird stuff. But I'm not allergic to corn or wheat. But I just can't have breads are you can have east so bread's probably pretty much out at that point but so just when. I started doing that in eating more of a Paleo Diet which I could eat anything so it it's fine. I wish I had known this twenty five thirty years ago and I haven't struggled so much because now I can maintain my weight at a pretty steady level. Just eating what I know is going to be beneficial. My Body. Well well. I don't know your mom so worried about 'cause you seem so capable of managing things and you're very knowledgeable about all this stuff certainly more knowledgeable about it than the average person What do you think your mom was so worried about in letting go? I don't believe she's worried about my capability or if I'm responsible enough ending it's more about losing control of her business and her legacy. What her baby her other baby. It's her baby. And if you think about a woman that came from nothing. My mother came from nothing yeah. She started two successful businesses and she left the other one because she had cancer and then walking away from that in at seventy seven wondering what am I gonNa do? Am I going to be honest like you know? Am I going to be obsolete am I going to be used for? People ARE GONNA. Want my opinion people still you know. Ask Me for advice in. I'm sure that's a very real wants to keep. She wants to fill a value valued and appreciated and people still come to her and make some have the decision making. I think it's just a control was more than anything. I understand that I certainly do. I have control problems myself just as my husband. I feel like I hear in like chuckling in the background. Back to Back to hard night. Good Morning What are some of your favorite products from the line? Well my new product that we launched last year. The L. twenty-two is amazing. Because it does everything for anti-aging this is the one that was on the show. It has the fancy. Algae is that right. That's fancy snow algae. It's one of the six active so I put six actors Inara so that made that product very expensive for me just to buy into put together. And then that's why it's ninety dollars because it's not a cheap product to make but has the snow algae it has l twenty two which brings your lipid levels back the time you're twenty two so that makes your skin a little more plump. Then we have the It has something for spots it has an HR which is for age spots dark dark spots in the we have forced to Allah. We have cell the cell communication with Durham Com from the CROCUS bulb. We've got a new form ahead on asset. A new form of vitamin C were Denson. Which is the back tries delivery system. I it has everything in it. So that is kind of my new favorite product and then my eye cream has been a bestseller for years. People love it because it deals with everything from dark circles. Developing has to elasticity and crow's feet wrinkles we got the daytime and nighttime moisturizer adjust reformulated the nighttime that's thicker when people tend to use that more in the wintertime. Unless you're older your skin's dry. The daytime people can use it with sensitive skin and Rosa and any kind of people have any kind of breakouts. It's really light and mild and will not irritate. Your skin will not cause breakouts a great product. It's my second best seller aftermath. I mean this is like an arsenal of stuff that I have never heard of or never knew that I needed. I'm one of these guys who has never put any sort of lotion or anything like that on my face. What's like the one thing from your collection that I've gotTa have if I was GONNA use one thing forever? What would it be after you shave? Use the detox toner because it's full of it helps razor bumps. It helps for with any kind of burned from your shaver. And it also has a little bit of a natural sunscreen from that. Malachi doesn't have sunscreen but it has natural plant based a protection and then my husband just started into the even though I have a skincare line or sees a typical guy and then when he got into that people magazine Best Top ten hottest men on Bravo. He's like oh I saw that now. He's screaming the backyard. That's true the eye cream. The daytime moisturizer now and L. Twenty too he's like L. Twenty two. We bring home for me. What's your cut?

Any comment will do So yeah any any comment and any NICIC combat. Thanks for catching that. You never know so we were just talking about your mom and I think that this might be a good time to talk a little bit about season three. Your mom made a comment on the first episode of season three. That you didn't have such luck with men and she seemed shocked. You made it to four years. Were you offended at all by that? Comment ten my mother typical my mother making like Kinda Funny Little Snide comments you know. She just has that personality. I mean it's it's kind of funny because I feel like my mom is like that too where she's like if if it's on her mind she has turret and she just has to say it she cannot keep it in or it kills her to keep it in. My mother just is the best at throwing settle shade. I wasn't set all worked talking really before the anniversary parties so we talked about two months so she kind of had it on her. Mind that any you know if you saw what she walked in and I had that box in my hand in our she wanted me to talk to her and I was dead set on putting his invitation was dead set on putting it in the kitchen. Because I didn't want to have a whole conversation with that box in my hand. Ryo in like the fact that I walked off did that but I mean she can throw some shade. But I'll tell you a funny story about that so after the episode aired and she was not too thrilled about how I spoke with her she thought it was. I wasn't very nice about her on my interviews and she said well you know. I can't believe you said those things that's another. We weren't talking for two months and I thought it was funny. Actually I could have set a lot worse because it got pretty nasty and I don't think are going to judge you and thank your horrible mother. I'm like I want to go. What about what you deflecting systems? He's beaten to the punch deflecting and then she so I said to her mom. You know you sort of things in your microphone. She's well I forgot I mike. I'm like well you can't forget. I was going to say that I was like she. Has She forgot? This is Mike for a minute. Because she was being real quiet she forgot she was miked and then she saw it. She's like Oh no happen so I don't think you'll forget again. Well you guys are doing fine so this was during your anniversary celebration. You and Jeremy are going on five years. How did you guys meet? We met in Washington. D Say Goodbye Interject. Right now on this story we met in Washington DC. I was actually on a meet the maker tour for my skin care line From different whole foods in the area and he was teaching at a workshop in the same hotel and I went to get a glass of wine and one of the guys in his workshop. Said may we take your photo and I'm like I'm really tired. Needs to what? We're doing a workshop. When he's four to show the students Blah Blah Blah. Whatever it was okay and then he said well let us buy you a glass of wine on Mike and I'm really tired and I looked over it as well. These are the guys teaching a workshop. And I saw my husband like I'm not so targeted more and he's cute perked right up perked up and I went over there in met Jeremy and talked all night and then literally i. We didn't talk for We through the next night because I wanted to introduce by girlfriend was single because I was not single at the time. Oh Okay Yeah so. I saw him. It was my birthday actually as well as my birthday celebration and then I didn't talk to him probably until June. I had broken up with the person I was in a relationship with at that time.

"Hi thanks for joining me. I'm so impressed with your year Texan. Okay listen people don't know this. I was actually born and raised. Well not raised but born in the panhandle on a ranch and up until I was about the age of twelve I was like taking care of goats and feeding pigs and driving a combine and I live in a totally different life. I had no idea I didn't know we had goats in Texas just kin- Q. They were really cute until my neighbor. took them and came to school the next day and said. Oh thanks for those votes. They were delicious. How traumatizing is that? That is traumatizing. You earned your body. Then that's right so okay I WANNA get into season three a little bit later but first I wanNA talk about you and your history before the show because I feel like there's so much there that we need to know and we only got a little taste of it on season two so you were born and raised in Dallas Right. Yes actually. I was born and raised in two thousand only cast member that actually is born raised in Dallas and. Actually Jeff are six generation. I gotta I gotTA check it again. I'm either fifth or Sixth Generation Texan which is pretty cool and so I know a lot about Dallas in a lot about Texas and I know a lot about the. The INS and outs of health. Society works here which you hear a lot about that. Run out in this season. You'll stay here a much more about it so well. I always imagined everyone else in Texas. Even in the big cities were that they were going to Rodeos lion dancing milking cows livestock auctions. So I get the sense that maybe that wasn't you and your family. You're right actually. When I was little my grand my dad so my biological father was is not. Glenn Simmons Glenn. My mother and Glenn Married when I was six run. He raced from that time. I was four. And that's how I my last name is Simmons. Because when my mother married him? I actually didn't take his last name until I was eighteen because he had raised me my whole life and my mom felt like we talked as a family. That was the right thing to do So anyway my biological father had a Mike. Grandmother had a sister with a big ranch in Ranger Texas near Stephenville and as a young girl I would go there every at least I don't know every few months or it could have even been. It could be in been once a month because I went to see my grandmother and Kilgore Texas in a moment to Stephenville ranger and I had read horses starting at three. We went butting for crawfish. They had all kinds of animals and it was it was a part of your real Texan. And that's Kinda learn how to ride and things like that. It is a little. Garon horse is three to four years old. Oh wow how interesting. I would have never guessed that I thought you were a city girl through and through so have you ever. Have you ever touched an utter though? Now I probably have sure not on ranches and my dad and his brother had a big glenn in his brother had a very big ranch in Arkansas or thousand acres in and I learned how to shoot into fish and all the kind of outdoors things that we do down here in Texas. You know explains why. You're so tough now. I was kind of curious. Yeah and I'm a really good shot. Skeet shooting range and we have a trap shooting range at that ranch so we also used to shoot tin cans. We didn't have that so I used to work with as she with a bow and all that kind of staffing just refund for targets would love to do that kind of stuff and you saw me last year with a cherry. We went out to the rain Has Some that you do? If you're a Texas girl but of course I was aggressive. My mother was in the fashion business. She was very glamorous she still is and I developed a love for close as early on as a young girl Never that's never gone away so I loved and whenever I left to go to college eighteen in Virginia and when I came back to my parents my mother was in society at my age. She was cheering events. And things like that but it really wasn't her cup of tea person as she really liked doing that more than she liked. Kind of the Kapisa. Boss Yeah the competition between society women is just. It's really exhausting and finally pretty much walked away from it when I decided to do real housewives. Because it's just one of those things where this kind of show in this format. Is You know people kind of a lot of people love it. Allowed people to love it. Let's just put it that way. You know yeah I can imagine. We'll get to that but I want him back up just a little. What was it like growing up and Dallas? Well you got to remember. We're talking like eighties. S and his seventies eighties in the wind was in the bottom economy was at the early nineties. I can't remember Ho so glamorous it was jet airplanes in everybody had these big fur coats injured aeroplanes. Diamonds and opulence in Jr was you know in Dallas was the biggest show on TV. That's what Dallas really was. That's how my mom. She walked out of the House and into go to these. Glamorous dinners My Dad in Herald they had planes and we traveled to dinner in New Orleans and San Antonio just for fun and just as it was money. Like W is just like water like oil floating around everywhere like streets so it was really amazing. I mean it was just Dallas in Texas in general. I think it's just a little bit over the top. Were definitely not discreet. Would measure yeah. We're not discreet. Were not like Blueblood ish like they are in the east coast very showy probably There's no such thing really as old money in Texas. I would say like you would say on the east coast and also little different. It's all nouveau riche right. I don't care if you're hot. You're still nouveau riche. You know that the white is sure came later so it makes sense today. What do you like the most about Dallas? What do you dislike about Dallas? What I love about my city is that everybody's very friendly in general. I mean you can use people. Just have that southern kind of hospitality about them but what I now Dallas has changed so much we have. Most people don't know this. The biggest arts district in the United States is in downtown Dallas. So we have people that are really into arts and so we built this beautiful Opera House. A beautiful theater with the booker. T. Washington at Center for the Performing Arts School that People Air Kabar Do nor Jones went to in. Its is to be on the board there. We've got a beautiful symphony. So people are really walking arts district so I love the fact that our city is becoming more of an art city. We have the park now. Clyde Warren Park that is like our baby baby central park that walk around and that's beautiful You've got the shopping. And you have the number one cosmetic counter in the world at Neiman Marcus at North Park. You would never know the. Dallas has all this stuff? I mean you can buy anything you can. You have great restaurants you have A. I think we have more restaurants per capita. I'm not saying they're all as good as they are another cities. But we watch and I believe that you having the choices we have in having everything I live in highland park in its access close to downtown close to North Park everything and then also you can drive a few hours away. Be IN THE HILL COUNTRY. Beautiful there be down different places in Texas where they have fresh water springs. And you can go get peaches in the summertime. You can go. Here's some good music at Green Dance Hall and new braunfels also Texas has its own culture but it also has a sound level of sophistication. That's different but it it's going to be a little more. Glam more show Asian probably under in the US but that's kind of we were republic. I mean we. We still have a nationalistic Attitude about being republic at one point I would definitely that definitely exists. Well you've got me sold but let's get real. What are some of the things that you dislike about it? Some of the things I just like about it. I believe that. Have some really good friends of unlucky for that? I've had friends for a long time. But some of the cattiness that goes on among women here. I think is unnecessary in southern shade. Yeah that-that's something that I really don't enjoy. I did exit myself out of a lot of the charity events in Dallas. Because I felt like at one point. It's not about the charity anymore. It's about you know who's cheering deaths. pictures in what paper? And what you know. Who's on the best dressed list in whose husband is running the biggest check and it a lot of times? It's women cutting other women on and that's just not my game. I don't like that so I worked very hard in established myself as one of the fundraisers in this city. And then when you're at the top sometimes people wanna cut you down and that's kind of what happened to me and it was very disheartening. Hurt my hurt me for a long time. That would I have done so much. Women were jealous and they been treated me fairly in. Data's the only thing I think that really kind of a little la. But I don't see the level of cattiness in judging that we. We have here a lot of other cities. My girlfriend's it went to college with me in Virginia. They are all been on the east coast mostly in the day Communist. This is ridiculous. I can't believe you know people are fighting about these silly things talking about these things and you're not women into a clever or a position because they're jealous of something. I mean it's that kind of things I don't like about Really in the women's kind of circles here I think that's all over Texas too. I think that that's taxes thing. That's a Texas sized drama infringe on the other hand. There's lovely people here and not everybody's like that when you're in like a little society group. I think that people tend to focus on things that are really not important in the bigger scheme of things. And there's a lot of competition which is unnecessary. Because then you cut out. You'll that can do a lot for the city because I don't like her so she's not going to be able to do this or and that's not how. I would vote people in two different organizations all the time that I didn't care for but they could raise that money and I voted in thinking about the charity. Not about myself and I don't have to go have lunch with cocktails or do anything with them. As long as they brought the money to the bottom line you swim in and have a bigger macro picture. Not just about like Suzie because her hair is this way or her husband has more money or we steepest so people get exclusionary with charity. They kind of like pit charity against one.

For leading Bryn spend time with Dennis shields who passed away from an overdose but she herself might have a substance abuse problem following her behavior on the real housewives of New York trip in which she appeared inebriated running around without clothes before passing out. The judge turned their nose up at that allegation citing with Bethany who had in fact not move forward in her relationship with Dennis congrats. Speaking of Dennis fans were slamming. Carole radziwill for her twitter response to his death. And why all because she didn't include Bethany in her well wishes what the fuck people that is just ridiculous. Do you know how creepy it would be? If one of my ex's died and one of my friends put out a public statement that said Oh troy. I'm so sorry for your life like fuck you you Weirdo. I'm still here. Carol is a class act and I have no doubt that she sent her condolences privately. Also Carol I'm still waiting on you to call me okay by Thomas. Ravanell is claiming to have quit southern charm. Yeah fucking right. His latest tweet said I'm not doing the show because in the contract they have the right to fictionalized your story. All right. Say what you will about people leaving or being fired from a show who cares but we can all agree that Thomas needed to go. If you need any more prove please go back and listen to my interviews with Aaron Martin. Who has the full scoop on his indiscretions? My concern is though whether or not the show which you all know is one of my favorites will be able to survive. I think it needs that old southern money element and unless they find it. I really have my doubts about its future. Rumours are also swirling that Thomas Ravanelli and Ashley Jacobs have officially split. Apparently another podcast told people magazine. That Ashley had disclosed the break up to her in a recent phone call Ashley later confirmed the split in an instagram live video requesting that fans hook her up with some eligible bachelors. Hey I hear Jimbo Lena's back on the market but then this morning I saw Ashley and Thomas were caught a photo by some stranger who would snap their pig at home team barbecue back in Charleston.

"I've been traveling that my whole life in good through my instagram whatever. I only had the Delta Job for two years and I couldn't talk about it because I had a loophole like I figured out a loophole which is technically not anyway. I lost my job because of the show did because I the way I did. I found this. I figured out how to get. The flights was kind of like against the rules. But okay is this a loophole and so actually at the place in Savannah. There's like six of my other friends. Multimillionaires do the same thing one of the guys. I got a job there. He He owns like ninety five properties in Savannah. But everyone does it just to travel But it's not allowed to really talk about it in the in that you do it just for traveling so I don't I mean no shame. No shame in that game. Everyone who I grew up with because people don't know this unless you're from Georgia. Delta is headquartered in Atlanta so everyone who I grew up with You know their families worked for Delta and so we were all trading buddy passes and going places on buddy passes and things like that so I I get what you're saying I get what you're saying Travels a big part of my life like a lot of people don't understand and by the way we didn't get paid for it because you know and people are confused about if I didn't have a legitimate job how could I take time off or pay for all these lavish vacations you know. I think people look at this. They're a little bit close-minded about not everyone because a lot of people message me and common about under light that's awesome and there's two or three bleiler just asked me. I would totally told him. He League baited me. Because that's not my job. Why such a surprise to them? I mean like why did a why. Why did nobody know that? Because you just weren't that close with any of them. I just Nelson New Right because you got the job. So so excited about the opportunity But you know it was like once a week for a few hours. That's not my job. My job is styling and art directing and doing what? I'm doing to actually pay my bills like there's a you know the other thing that frustrates me about this. Is that Daniels not a lawyer. And he makes it out to be like he is and he's on my case all the time. And like who cares if somebody's hustling you know. I think it's I I don't know I think in the other thing too. So is it. Okay if I fly around with a Sugar Daddy. Who's paying for it? That's okay though. Almost you're right. It did seem like that would have been more acceptable than you actually working hard labor. It was like it was almost like the implication is if people wanted to watch hard labor. They'd watch fan pump rules. You know I don't know something like that Well that's a bummer. That you lost the job because I was totally going to ask you for Buddy passbook. Never mind is right. I'm just fine. Okay well thanks for clearing up last season. Those those are my unresolved Ashley Issues. I guess they can stop seeing my therapist now. So where are you now? You're into by your living in Dubai. So I'm in Dubai working okay and still back and forth to Savannah I have. I have a movie coming out that I'm in August yes. I went and watched the preview. It looks great. I hope so. I haven't seen it yet you. I've seen a preview but not the okay So you know that was really fun and I've got some you know a few auditions for TV. Show another movie coming up in the states. I recall and by the way anybody who's listening. I'm going to throw that link up to the To the movie preview it's called in an La. Minute is that right and I'm going to throw that link up on the episode page so you can go and check it out okay. So you're working on the movie. What else do you have going on? What are you doing in Dubai? So right now. I'm working as an art director for TV commercial And you know just working on different projects here in the film industry but back on the other side of the camera so it's interesting jumping in front and behind the camera right here now. I'm doing art department our direction And then in the states I'm working as cast so listen about hustle. I ain't GonNa work at a pay bills and I love my job. I absolutely love the film industry in working with creatives and I'm so lucky that I get paid for it right so you're on on that side of the camera now. Would you ever be interested working on another reality show? Maybe on the other side of it maybe not as cast but on the other side of it now NAVC. I like being cast. Honestly I really do I. I really enjoy both sides but I you know my dream would be to have some sort of like Anthony. Bourdain type show. Have you ever seen the show? Dark tourist never heard of it. What does it oh my gosh. It's amazing so net flakes and it's this time journalists that travels around the world. It's called dark tourism so too weird things like voodoo ceremonies Strange places around the planet. But you know who knows? I think there's a couple opportunities that I'm speaking to a few different people about but now I really enjoy being on camera as well But doing art department again for a full TV series. Now it's crazy. Yeah well we're certainly missing you so we hope that you will become cast wherever it might be Are you are you currently dating anyone? So that's some very interesting story. Perhaps for an another podcast but yes. I'm back together with my old fiancee. You're with the one who you were with before you remarried Dennis. Yes Oh how interesting were you? Can You? Don't if you feel comfortable answering this? Were you kind of longing for him that entire time or did it kind of come later after the divorce and you know This guy and I were very close and best friends. We had business together. We lived together And we broke up and it was quite bad He married a or an ex friend of mine Very quickly and they had a child very quickly to that so kind of something that I I didn't think about it. I was hurt extremely by situation so kind of pushed on my mind but of course I missed our our relationship kind of like we could never even be friends anymore after that happens sure. Yeah but then several years go by and you kind of you know listen. Life also provides a big space for forgiveness and patients when you suffer from anything And so I was in San Ritz in March with a different boyfriend and We were visiting some old friends from Dubai. And they're like you know this guy he just got divorced Blah Blah and so then I was like all right three out just to be friends again and It seems that you know there was a big space of love and we were just too young the first time and so. How long have you guys been dating now and back again since March? Okay STILL PRETTY FRESH. But an old flame very juicy I'm excited to hear that and I'm happy for you. How is he your son? Is he oldest? So he's a freshman in high school. Joking me wild. I can't even breathe. That's ridiculous I know I know I. I can't every time I see him. He's taller than me. Now it's blows my mind. And does he go to the same school that you grew up going to know the show. I think they all have Blacklisted you. I'm blacklisted. Yeah yeah money. That's good funny. How that happens Okay so obviously you're I must you said you watched the premiere with Nelson. So you're watching this season and you're coming up in the next episode. I'm just curious. What are your thoughts on this season? So far in general really getting you gotTa have an opinion. You of all people have an opinion. I know you do so you know. I have nothing against any and the by the cast except Lyle. Lyle and I can make that very clear But you know I think that they're all just they. Just there have different lives than I. Do you know so their lives are just kind of less. I wouldn't say exciting but A little more traditional or I understand what you're I understand. I understand the implication And you know they're all really sweet and I think hateds gorgeous and person and You know everyone has their own things going from and I feel really bad for so my classmates watching what they're going through. You know like my heart hurts for Liu and Hannah and you know and Catherine and lyle and regardless of that you know watching it too. I feel feel bad. I'm like Ooh you know like maybe a little bit easier on me last season when I was suffering right. How interesting how interesting. Let's talk about lyle and Catherine so actually I went back just as I was getting ready to come and chat with you and I wanted to go and reminisce. On last season I went back and watched those episodes and it was actually so awkward watching Lyle Ask. Catherine's parents for her hand in marriage and they were so excited and they hug it out and then as everyone knows he got rejected not once but twice and then now the they're split up you know and they're going their separate ways or they're not or they're floundering around Are you surprised at where their relationship is at today? No I'm not I'm I you know. I feel bad for both of them. That they had to kind of go through this way But you could tell they don't have a lot of chemistry Their old friends for sure and you can tell very close in French. You know they're very close But you don't really get that like I'm on fire for this person. You don't really get that vibe. From them I agree and in so I honestly. I'm I'm happy that they're seeing. You know this opportunity to move on and do other things and meet other people Because we're all not getting any younger I you know. They're only a year younger than me. Thirty three so took whatever you while you've been through your own if you've been you've been a little bit more experienced you've been married and you. What advice would you give to them to not be afraid? You know not be afraid of having to stick in the same lines as as what people think they should do or no where they should be but to just to just feel more free to move on and they need to or not have to please everybody around them because it's their live. You think that other people are encouraging them to stay together. Stick it out. Do the southern thing right exactly. Yeah interesting work so long for this heart. High School sweethearts. Oh yeah because they were like fifteen or seventeen years in people are. You've come so far. Yeah that's bullshit Exactly and so then waste more years than you turn around and you know have your life is gone and you're like Dang you know any any predictions for what will happen with Hannah and Louis too. I have no idea because I keep seeing photos of them online and they're together but they're not i. I'm not sure Again I think that maybe situation where it's you know. It's there's no reason to hold on. This is move on the people and you can always get back together if you missed the person but you're young you don't have any kids like life and be. Happy Jack Out. Their life is not so serious that I think that Hannah for me like I told you I am a anyone who's listening to this show knows that I left the south when I was sixteen and I never looked back in Hanover. Me Reminds me of every church going girl that I grew up with high school that I just cannot really stand to be around anymore. And she's so frigid. And just like where's the like sexiness and that you know? I think that's why she has. I get under her skin a little bit and you'll see the season at last season was a lot of that are left out between me and her where. I was not bullying Hanner. You know The situation about the fashion was literally. I was so frustrated that everybody was not show. Because I've worked really hard for my career session. It seemed like the show is focusing on me. Just being a baggage handler. And then all of a sudden I find out there like making half fashion designer so it was lifted into producer. I yelled at the producers and talked about it..

"I'll post that link on the episode page and Facebook so you can find it. Come hang with US literally all right. Let's get into some of the latest juicy news this week in reality. Tv LUANDA LESS UPS has officially made her exit from Rehab in Connecticut. Where she spent less than three weeks she left to prepare for an upcoming performance of her live. Cabaret show Hashtag Countess and friends in Atlantic City. I'm no expert but the average. Stay FOR PEOPLE IN. Rehab is thirty days with some making a stay as long as ninety days. Point is this just wouldn't have been long enough for someone with a true addiction especially one who's been in and out. I've said this before. I don't believe Luanne has a drinking problem now. An entitlement issue so severe that a person makes threats and assaults other people. Maybe a drinking problem doubtful either way. Look out for Countess and friends coming to a city near you and sign me up to Southern Charms Catherine Dennis is rumored to be in talks about being on the Bachelorette. This would be the crossover of all crossovers and I for one would love it. The news came following a curious fan asking Catherine on twitter. Hey would you ever consider being the BACHELORETTE ON ABC? That would be amazing. Catherine's response. Actually I'm kind of talks about it. The only thing is that there is usually some sort of non compete clause in these reality. Tv contracts so basically. Bravo owns her. But that doesn't mean she couldn't do a relationship style show on Bravo either way. Count me in for watching following her dismissal from real housewives of Atlanta Kenya Moore had an army of fans picketing outside the embassy building at Rockefeller Plaza. Okay so maybe it was a modest turnout of just about five people but hey a movement is a movement and team twirled doesn't play. They came ready to show Bravo executives that they meant business sporting homemade signs and shouting chants including Boycott Bravo Boycott Bravo and Kenya. More team twirl. According to another report the crowd also shouted. What do we want Kenya? Who Do we need Kenya? Bring Back Kenyan. More real. The network is clearly sending a message to all of the ladies in every housewife city. Share it all or lose your job because we all know. Kenya was shielding many parts of her life especially as they related to her marriage. All right the real grandma's of New York are looking to replace Carole radziwill with a much younger lady according to insiders. They're just worried that they're getting too far away. From the show's original intention to showcase the lives of fabulous women in their forties living the life of luxury. Personally I don't know why didn't mess with a good thing. Scott Disick is getting his own show on e this is the description. Scott will be traveling sometimes. And it will focus on his real estate dealings while groundbreaking. Of course we all know. This is just an extension of the KARDASHIAN empire and we can expect any number of famous family.

"Home Office doing insurance sales. It really was about the odd hersal dynamics with her assistant Laurie right. And then in the season to see how their their socio economic level had switched radcliff. So Vicki be start was the rich one and she had this like poor assistant. Who was going through divorce and then Laurie ends up marrying this extremely wealthy businessmen right and so that's the kind of stuff I love And I don't love the way that somebody like. Vicki is curator for the camera. Uranium for the camera but also her face is totally changed out during like Chanel necklaces. And it's it just doesn't feel like it's a real representation of that person's personality anymore. It's then leaning into the character that they You know that they kind of created on the show moved into. It moves into the direction of a soap opera. It's becomes a soap opera and not a reality show anymore. Yeah I agree with you was okay. So on this other charmer unions. We can really just break these down until like five highlights. Okay Catharine. Dennis is officially redeemed. What do you think of her transformation? Okay so I because a interviews like I get a chance to get to know. Some of these people are Interviewing them and some of them I carry on relationships with afterwards kind of in a peripheral way so catherine I would say. She joined the show. She was twenty one years old. She's total kid and I think she was She didn't have some sorta parental advocate that kind of stood up for her and Sir backbone so she gets in the show. She meets an older guy. I think the Thomas is a gas lighter. I think he makes everyone around like they're crazy absolutely and she next thing you know. She's pregnant she doesn't really have anybody. Who's like an ad advocate for her? And then she just sort of unwinds on camera because he's gas lining her and. I don't think that the rest of the cast really understood to what degree he was doing so You know I think now they kind of understand or so but they were kids two cents so we really watched her grow up on camera and Yeah. It seemed like in these reunions. The cast really kind of woke up to what they had just experienced over the last five years. Yeah she's certainly very poised and you know. I think she had a hard time and I'm happy to see her doing well. I'm being sober. The second highlight here is still. The men have zero ambition. Who Do you agree? Yeah bums me out and somebody said to me yesterday will that's that's their job now author on TV. But I think that that's a huge mistake to make and I think it wasn't. Things weren't so different for any of them before before the show. You think that some of them are just leaning on the show now absolutely. I think that's a huge mistake. That a reality star makes to to rely solely on the show because you are expandable. I don't care who you are. You spendable so if you rely on this. It's like taking time off for. It's like somebody who's like twenty four saying I'm GONNA take a year off from my job and financial services and go backpacking through Europe. It's like well good luck trying to get back into job though. It's the same thing with Ella Vision. I mean huge sacrifice when you go on. Tv show because that is going to be an imprint. Now like that's going to be difficult for up for people to look past that unless you have plans to use the television opportunity to springboard to something within the entertainment industry or like or launching line or another business. You're an entrepreneur and you WANNA start like jewelry businesses or something that makes sense there really is a blip. It is reality. Tv for if you're a actual talent on or quote unquote talent on the show. It really is just a blip in your life. Yeah let you so if you go to try to get a job like insurance two years after you're on a reality show that's GonNa follow you absolutely. You have to be very careful before you join a reality show and if you are a rally show you must have supplements Ansari. Yeah absolutely and you do hear a like you said you do hear about housewives and other people who start lashing out after they've departed show because they're grasping for some tension or tabloid or to sell a story or anything like that happens all the time. There's a there. There's this one housewife that had laptops show and I remember she had reached to a couple of people and said you know. Do you think I could pitch like a cookbook? Gives two shits about your cooking my friend? It's over you missed a missed. The boat yes. I said this last night to somebody I feel like if I had a sliding door life I would have been a great agent because some people are just really. They're not they. Sign ALLOTTED SAVVY CONTRACT. And you know these contracts are really quite something. We'll be like twenty pages long. The next the next story in these reunions Chelsea and Aston Romance storyline might finally be done for good. Thank God was bored by that one. number four. Naomi and Craig are like coke and mental else I'm disappointed though. We didn't get the Naomi meltdown that we were promised. Did you notice that everyone was talking about how nuts Naomi goes on the reunion and I guess I missed it while they were supposed to do it? Three parts and then they cut it down to two and right away. Vincent's tuneup. I think because they realized that most people were really interested in the dynamics. Between Catherine and Ashley. Right and this brings me to number five the Ashley Interior. I've tangled up and Ashley and Catherine coming face to face. What did you think about Ashley on the Union? Did she come off as heinous as you expected? I know I was expecting her to Did she come off that way on the reunion? I I was kind of expecting war. I don't know why I've spoken.
