    Relations With ‘That Woman’ — Bill Clinton, Monica Lewinsky and the benefit of hindsight

    Relations With ‘That Woman’ — Bill Clinton, Monica Lewinsky and the benefit of hindsight

    Remember that time the whole world scapegoated a 20-something-year-old intern but not her very married, much older, very presidential secret lover?
    You might sort of know what happened between former US President Bill Clinton and White House intern Monica Lewinsky. But the story’s taken on mythical status over the years, blurring the memories of those who watched it unfold on TV, and making it a confusing mess for those who didn’t.
    Britt and Laura take you into an understaffed White House where the interns are working late, and the world is wondering about the inappropriate actions of the President. Why did Monica have to hand her blue Gap dress over to the FBI? How did they get together in the first place? And how different does the whole love affair look with the benefit of hindsight, in a post-Me-Too world?

    Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet — It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over

    Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet — It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over

    Actors Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet were the most optimistic – and human – fairy tale love story in Hollywood. They’re rich, famous and beautiful, sure, but they also showed us that building a loving, respectful, blended family – even in the spotlight – was possible.  
    They had the style and the substance, and Jason had a beautiful bromance with Lisa’s ex, Lenny Kravitz. We were here for it. 
    But now they‘re no longer together, Britt and Laura have some QUESTIONS. The girls are taking this one down to the precinct and they are going to grill it until they have answers!  
    Does their break-up cast doubt on the seeming perfection of their relationship at large? Or reinforce Laura’s claim to the Man Mountain as her hall pass?  
    A rollicking tale with gratuitous mentions of beautiful people, rock stars and (weirdly) Irish beer, conscious uncoupling has taken on a whole new meaning for these two...

    Tiger Woods & Elin Nordegren – A picture-perfect love story with a smashing ending

    Tiger Woods & Elin Nordegren – A picture-perfect love story with a smashing ending

    This is not your average love story. 
    He was destined for greatness. His father believed he was so talented he would literally change the world. He was breaking world records before he was even a professional athlete. One of his first major sponsors sort of implied he might... end racism?!  
    There was a lot of pressure on Tiger Woods in the first half of his career. His parents, his sponsors, his supporters, and even people who’d previously never watched a second of golf in their lives, were watching with baited breath.  
    But he just wouldn’t crack. Whether it was the final putt in a Masters tournament or an interview question in poor taste, Tiger Woods just wouldn’t make a wrong step. He even married the perfect woman in Elin Nordegren: beautiful, intelligent, poised, and endlessly supportive. 
    Oh, and then he became the centre of the biggest, most ludicrous sex scandal in modern history overnight. When it rains it pours, right?  
    How did Tiger Woods fall from grace so very, very hard? And how on earth did he keep the whole thing a secret for so long? Did Elin know all along? And what’s changed in the decade since?

    BENNIFER 2.0 - A green diamond reboots Hollywood's greatest love story

    BENNIFER 2.0 - A green diamond reboots Hollywood's greatest love story

    Wait, what?! Another engagement ring, another butt-kiss on a yacht. It’s a fresh start for Bennifer 2.0!  
    Pop icon Jennifer ‘J.Lo’ Lopez and Hollywood heartthrob Ben Affleck met and fell in love filming a rom-com in the wee years of the twenty-first century, and quickly became the most famous couple in the world. There was the infamous Jenny From the Block video, featuring the even more infamous butt kiss on a yacht and then... 
    It ended as swiftly as it began. The whirlwind romance whooshed off into distant memories, and the two stars rode respective rollercoasters in their new marriages and their careers. But in 2021, nearly two decades after they first met, rumours of a reunion started rumbling... 
    Can Ben Affleck one-up the serious moves he pulled off the first time he wooed J.Lo? Has nostalgia finally taken over the planet? And... is the second time the charm?

    Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez – Pop's perfect tween power couple or straight up publicity stunt?

    Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez – Pop's perfect tween power couple or straight up publicity stunt?

    He was every teenage girl’s dream crush, and she was the perfect Disney princess, but all that pressure sure didn’t lead to any diamonds for Jelena. 
    The meteoric rise of Canadian popstar Justin Bieber became the blueprint for a new kind of fame: plucked from obscurity thanks to home videos posted on YouTube, Justin became a best-selling sensation overnight. It’s the dream, right?  
    Maybe... if your dream is to be completely unrelatable, to grow up under the scrutiny of millions, and for nearly every adult in your life to rely on you to make their living. At least Justin’s first serious girlfriend, Disney star Selena Gomez, had a cohort of famous friends who’d grown up in the same circumstances and knew what a toll that spotlight could take.  
    Selena was probably the first person who truly understood what Justin was experiencing. So, it tracks that his notorious string of public mishaps – including leaving his pet monkey at a German airport and drag racing while under the influence – began not long after the pair’s first breakup.  
    Did Justin need Selena more than she needed him? Or did his astronomical fame help shed Selena’s wholesome teen actor reputation?  
    In this episode of Hooked, Hitched & Hung Up, Britt and Laura turn the spotlight on America’s pop power couple, who started out sweet as pie and ended up brawling in Instagram comments and thinly veiled song lyrics.

    Elon Musk & Grimes – A secret baby, a hostage situation and whole lot of Twitter nonsense

    Elon Musk & Grimes – A secret baby, a hostage situation and whole lot of Twitter nonsense

    Featuring everything from secret babies to an alleged hostage situation with a famous rapper, the love story between billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk and futuristic musician Grimes (aka ‘c’) is not your cookie cutter romance. 
    Our jaws first dropped when we saw the pair on the Met Gala red carpet, and those jaws remained firmly on the floor as they went on to have babies with unpronounceable names and to disagree with each other in very public forums.  
    But when your meet-cute is the result of a shared affinity for jokes about artificial intelligence and 18th century art movements, it’s to be expected that your relationship might be a little... unusual. 
    How did the world’s richest man fall for one of pop music’s more eccentric artists? Why are they always fighting each other on Twitter? And how on earth do you pronounce their son’s name?

More interesting people

I love listening to a few of your episodes but some are so boring the couples aren’t interesting and their stories are boring would love to see more famous couples thoroughly enjoyed the bill Clinton one and the Justin and Selina one!

Do better

Absolute rip off

Poddy26272 ,

Not good

The silly acting isn’t funny which I think the girls think is comedy gold. It’s just cringe. This podcast format is already out with the shameless girls who have set the bar high so this is just painful to listen to. You could turn it around if you take away the silly theatricals.
