BONUS EP: Jumping Into "House of Hilton" and What It Reveals about Kathy & Paris Hilton and Kyle & Kim Richards with Jess Rothschild
In this special crossover event, Jamie and Hot Takes & Deep Dives host Jess Rothschild officially review House of Hilton, the 2006 expose of the Hilton dynasty that heavily features the backstories of Kathy Hilton, Kyle & Kim Richards and their mother, Big Kathy. Together, they explore Big Kathy's quest for men, money and Hollywood, and the ways in which she projected those dreams onto her three daughters, how their mom kicked Kyle & Kim's father out of the home he built for them so she could run a sorority house, and parallel themes on both sides of the Hilton/Richards lineage. They also discuss Kathy and Paris Hilton's dynamic in the documentary This is Paris and how it relates to the book's revelatory content.

S1, Ep 12: Peeling Back the Many Personas of Erika Jayne with Piper Sample
Jamie welcomes Piper Sample back to the podcast to see what Erika Jayne's current scandals might be revealing about her inner emotional landscape. Together, they explore Erika's relationship to the very nature of performance, the blurred lines between her actual life and the roles she has played on stage and screen, the hollowness of the "Erika Jayne" persona, how past conflicts with Dorit/PK and Teddi Mellencamp energetically predicted what she is going through today, the refusal to feel a core humiliation that is perhaps powering all of her internal divisions, and much, much more. Though it all, Jamie and Piper continually seek to answer the questions, "What is Erika meant to learn from all this...?" and "How can Erika use this ordeal as a gateway to her truer, higher self...?"

S1, Ep 11: Deconstructing this Difficult Season of RHONY & Investigating the Deeper Levels of Sonja Morgan with Deanna Cheng
Jamie welcomes actress, writer, comedienne and Montage Queen Deanna Cheng to the pod for a two-for-one special: first, they roll up their sleeves and dig into this latest difficult season of "The Real Housewives of New York City" - the lack of cast cohesion, the severe emotional limitations of several of the OG's, Bershan's role as the surprising catalyst for individual and group revelation, and much more; they then pivot for an odyssey into Sonja Morgan's inner landscape - her covert entitlement, her latent need to be rescued, how she feels about JP Morgan today, her relationship to the townhouse and, oh yes, the revealing lawsuit that never quite gets explored with any clarity or specificity (until now).

S1, Ep 10: Why Is Sutton Stracke So Triggered By Gift Giving? What Was Tom Girardi's Attitude Towards His Victims? And What Was Underneath Kathy Hilton's Tomassina Greeting?
In this solo episode, Jamie explores why Sutton Stracke was so deeply triggered by the ladies' birthday gift to Garcelle, how Tom Girardi justified his theft from his clients/victims, and what Kathy Hilton may have intended in "innocently" invoking the "Tomassina" moniker...
S1, Ep 9: Exploring the Many Identities of Porsha Williams on RHOA with Haneefah Wood & Chanel Creating
Jamie is joined by returning guest Haneefah Wood and podcaster/life coach Chanel Creating to discuss Porsha Williams' recent scandalous engagement and all of the attendant issues that come up as a result. This episode ventures into Porsha's many different incarnations on The Real Housewives of Atlanta - dutiful housewife, Princess of Thotlandia, slinger of criminal accusations, social justice advocate and the target of slut shaming - and what these different faces just might be revealing about Porsha's unconscious landscape.
