    Slobby Seconds (with Tom Smyth)

    Slobby Seconds (with Tom Smyth)

    Inspired by Jackie's friendship contract 180, Sarah mails a BFF bracelet to Alexis Bellino. After the postmaster reminds her "Dame, this isn't you. Send it to Archie Beador instead," and realizing NJ delivered an ep that had a lot to say, she delivers the best kind of love letter - a deep dive with her Bravoholic pal, spiritual writer girl (with credits including Vulture, Vogue, and the LA Times, among others), Tom Smyth. They settle into the cloff and discuss strategizing job security over history/lessons learned, whether or not Louie has changed vs. inspired Teresa's on-off-camera behavior, Andy's latest remarks on the future of the NJ cast, the fascinating tension behind Jackie and Jen Fessler, the disappearance of Jennifer Aydin, former star, the lack of electricity (LOL) between Paulie and actually finalizing his divorce, and the difference between sloppy and slob. Jackie may have short and long term memory loss, but this convo is front of mind - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 550!

    Goodbye, Kyle (with Dylan Hafer)

    Goodbye, Kyle (with Dylan Hafer)

    Sarah is currently on a plane of existence as far yet unknown to Neil deGrasse Tyson - she’s saying hi to George Clooney a la Gravity, good to almost meet you Jlo in that weird new AI robot thing, and oh look, the moon and stars above also known as a world where Summer House plays 24/7. After recording a deep dive in her mind, she decides to also take to the mic, with her Bravoholic bestie, Dylan Hafer (director of social for entertainment at Betches Media, host of the pod Mention It All, and creator of @BravoByBetches). They deep dive Lindsay’s PR strategy a la “A Beautiful Mind,” Kyle’s lead role in Lindsay and Carl’s relationship, what did production know/assume about the pick-up in filming, the lack of bloat in a 2-part edit that also missed many key storylines throughout the season (including Lindsay vs. Carl), how sexuality has been handled - and sometimes, weaponized - on Bravo and online, and why having those convos as a pejorative or without said cast member’s participation is not a “mention it all” opp. This season of Summer House will live on forever, and so will Sarah’s thoughts on Kyle - it’s Andy’s Girls, Episode 549!

    Fear and Loathing in Franklin Lakes (with Dylan Hafer)

    Fear and Loathing in Franklin Lakes (with Dylan Hafer)

    Sarah watches RHONJ and immediately reverts to child's pose (Namaste? Go Away). She realizes the tense energy from NJ has carried through IRL, and realizes the best way to cool down the heat is the very chill Sweet Baby Dyl, Dylan Hafer (director of social for entertainment at Betches Media, host of the pod Mention It All, and creator of @BravoByBetches). They decamp to the cloffice, and immediately mention it all: escalating Bravoleb boundary-crossing seemingly without production or network intervention, and what that energy means for the future of Housewives/Bravo, casting wishes for a rebooted franchise (including Dylan’s probably-surprising cast pick), forced selective memory loss around last season’s reunion (and this season’s present social media), Dolores and Paulie’s tense conversation around marriage, and why RHONJ needs to watch “Kindergarten Cop.” Danielle walked on fashion week, and after that last scene, Sarah is ready to run - it’s Andy’s Girls, Episode 548!

    We Come to This Place for Magic: Part 2 of the Summer House Reunion

    We Come to This Place for Magic: Part 2 of the Summer House Reunion

    Summer, summer, summerrrtiiiiime. Sarah watches the Summer House reunion's grand finale (completely unacceptable it wasn't at least 17 eps), and runs to send production a jackhole of the day award for some of the narrative expressed. And, ya know, some good stuff. She mentions it all: a confoundingly consistent male gaze over women on Summer House (and VPR) that takes the majority-women audience for granted (#representationmatters when actually formulating the Qs asked, as well as what's edited), Kyle's inconsistent rage against Lindsay (a re-direct away from himself?), Amanda's openness about her struggles with anxiety and depression, a lack of depth around Lindsay that's more than afforded to Carl, Danielle, future YouTube viral sensation, and the problem with applying the Sandoval Scale on West. What would Jesse Solomon do? Say: it's Andy's Girls, Episode 547!

    Something's Gotta Give (with Kate Aurthur and Louis Staples)

    Something's Gotta Give (with Kate Aurthur and Louis Staples)

    Sarah puts out the #writergirl bat call, after reading a thinly disguised anon quote from Carole about Andy in New York Magazine. Her dream team assembles on Zoom, bts tea in hand: Kate Aurthur (Variety's editor-at-large) and Louis Staples (writer and Housewives anthropologist). They stretch their writer/analysis muscles, tell Aviva's ghostwriter she's not needed, and deep dive into all things VPR, The Valley, and Summer House. It's a true mention it all: inside scoop following Kate's moderation of a Variety reality TV panel (with Alex Baskin, natch), which Pump Rules star made the surprising decision to decline a Variety interview (...), the impact of podcast pollution on VPR's ecosystem, why The Valley serves as a helpful form of birth control (and the joys of staying single vs. being married to Jax), confirmation from Kate about what really happened between Janet and Zack after finale cameras went down, and, of course, some feedback on Ciara and West. The Scandoval era may be winding down, but this convo is just getting started - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 546!

    A Simple Plan: Part 2 (with Rafi D'Angelo)

    A Simple Plan: Part 2 (with Rafi D'Angelo)

    Sarah watches the OC trailer and immediately books an Uber Pool to the moon (what better location to dance with franchise stars, especially with BravoCon 2024's location confirmed as "your heart"). Deflated a bit by some of the stressors in Franklin Lakes, she takes a Via back to earth, thankful for a *two-hour* double episode with one of her absolute fave Bravoholic voices: writer Rafi D'Angelo (overpricedvodka.com). They settle in for a wild and winding agent-of-chaos two-parter ep: an alternate universe in which Alexis doesn't date Shan's ex, the instinctive right choice of casting OC newbie Katie, a possibly surprising choice of who should remain on RHONJ following a likely cast cull, the difficulty of relying on a “by any means necessary” ethos as Bravoholics (and at the polls), the importance of being able to tolerate discomfort, who is truly the impediment to plot on NJ, Jackie's choices with Tre and Jen vs. Marg and Meliss, and ya know, the joy of a TV screen that fills the room and spirit. And, yes, Bethenny v Chanel. Louis may not love this episode, maybe he just needs to take a different kind of walk - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 545, Part 2!

🎃⭐️💀♥️ ,

♥️ I get her

Not everyone loves having super in-depth and nuanced conversations about bravo, some people like it more surface level and that’s completely okay! This particular podcast dives incredibly deep into bravos characters motivations, life experiences etc and I find it very very interesting and makes me see the show in a different way. Probably not for everyone but I adore it.

Rocky_M90 ,

I love this podcast!

This is one of the best Bravo podcasts! I love to hear Sarah’s opinions about the Housewives and other Bravo shows! I always look forward to new episodes and which amazing guests she has on! Definitely would recommend for any Bravoholics!

TCJ81 ,

“I’ll tell ya how I’m doing” where’s the retraction?

The misinformation on this episode was a disgrace. Where is this Jihad that was called for that you were so worried about? Did you clear up the misinformation you spread? Because that was never said, go read the quote.
Also, look up the definition of Jihad.

For a podcast I enjoyed for another interesting take on Bravo shows, I will no longer be listening.
