    Going Deeper With Billy Eichner - Bros, His Dating Life & Movie Drama Press

    Welcome back to another episode of The Viall Files, Going Deeper Edition! Today we are joined by the amazing Billy Eichner! On this episode we welcome on Billy as he breaks down his new upcoming movie, Bros! We get into it with talking about how being single for a long time changes how you approach dating, dating when you’re young versus when you know what you want, and how some marriages only work when you sleep in different beds. We also get into things with Billy, talking about getting banned off of Tinder twice, making a movie inspired by events from your life, and the process of making the upcoming moving Bros and making a gay comedy that’s universal. We also break down some pop culture topics, talking about the Don’t Worry Darling Drama, who you would make a fake fight with for fame plus red flags and green flags in dating. We then welcome on our Texting Office Hours callers! Our first caller is falling for her brother’s friend but after he shows some interest, our caller wonders if she could do better. Our second caller deals with constantly comparing the current guy she’s seeing to her ex. But after feeling some inconsistencies from this guy, she wonders if she should reach out or move on. 

    “I did really like him, but part of me just wanted to win.”

    Bachelor In Paradise Recap w/ Jessica Radloff

    Bachelor In Paradise Recap w/ Jessica Radloff

    Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelor In Paradise Edition! We are here with another episode, this time kicking off the premiere of this season of Bachelor In Paradise! Today we are joined by Editor, Writer and Author, Jessica Radloff to break down the premiere, some extra thoughts from The Bachelorette Finale, as well as some exciting Bachelor Nation tea. Reacting to further ripples from the finale, we revisit some of the craziness after being told that Tino is focusing on his mental health. We talk about the difference between looking for the why versus the justification, and how sometimes the truth hurts more than not having the answers itself. We also get into some Bachelor Tea, talking about the stunning breakup between Clayton and Susie, and the shocking rekindling of Peter and Kelley. We then get into talking about paradise, highlighting how Johnny got to show off more of his personality, Jesse looking more comfortable in a suit, and the reason everyone looks a little hotter on their second appearance on reality television. We also talk about how the blackbox censor over people’s butts make it look like they are doing something worse, if Michael A. is a daddy or zaddy, and Shanae and Genevieve reuniting after shrimp-gate. We also talk about Andrew getting a royal welcome with prince music playing during his entrance, Serene and Brandon looking ready to engage, and the potential triangle between Romeo, Jill, and Kira. We also talk about Lace always being the most authentic, Hunter’s potential intro in the upcoming full title sequence, and how Bachelor In Paradise is more fantastic than tragic. 

    “Everyone is just a little bit hotter!”

    Ask Nick - Don’t Text Your Ex Happy Birthday

    Ask Nick - Don’t Text Your Ex Happy Birthday

    Welcome back to another juicy and exciting episode of The Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! We’re here again to bring you another steamy episode where we bring on our callers to help answer their questions about navigating the dating world. In this special episode, we sent our callers an advanced copy of Nick’s book, “Don’t Text Your Ex Happy Birthday”, in order to get their thoughts and to have them apply the stories and advice from the book to their current and future romantic relationships! We bring on our first caller who wonders how she could’ve not fed her ego by pursuing a situationship with a guy that had clear red flags and warning signs. We then bring on a caller who had a wonderful relationship with a guy, until she started asking questions about his female roommate. With the truth coming out that this roommate was actually his wife, our caller wonders how to survive the blast of this mess and move on. Our next caller feels like he would be an amazing partner but just hasn’t had successful relationships or many opportunities to show off the love he can give. He hopes that by enlisting the help of Nick’s book and his female friends, he can find out how to set his right foot forward in the dating world. Our next caller is in shock after her one and a half year long distance situationship gets ended randomly by the guy she’s dating. Surprised and unsure what to do, she reflects on the answers she got from Nick’s book. Our last caller is looking forward to re-entering the dating world after returning from being stationed somewhere else for the military. With new advice and an open mind, this caller looks forward to finding love. We let each caller talk about their situation, what they liked about the book, what they learned, and who they would recommend this read to! So let’s get into our callers and see what they have going on in the world of love!

    “You made me excited to get back into dating!”

    Going Deeper With Harry Jowsey - His Break Up, Plus Adam Levine & Love Is Blind

    Going Deeper With Harry Jowsey - His Break Up, Plus Adam Levine & Love Is Blind

    Welcome back to another episode of The Viall Files, Going Deeper Edition! Today we have a very exciting episode where we welcome on Harry Jowsey of Too Hot To Handle to get the exclusive tell all on his recent breakup with Georgia Hassarati. On this episode we kick things off by recapping the breakup, talking about how moving on is harder when it was an amicable breakup, going cold turkey on reaching out, and how to focus on your ex's best interests by letting them heal. We also get into setting goals with dating, manifesting dating your best friend, how your love language can change over time, and how being upfront about your expectations helps in the long term. We then get into some pop culture topics, recapping the Adam Levine cheating scandal, how people are too focused on getting clout, and the shocking revelations and breakups from Love is Blind’s After the Altar episode. We then welcome on our Texting Office Hours caller, where our caller struggles after she sees the guy she’s dating hanging out with her ex’s best friend. Knowing that the friend doesn’t like her, and feeling awkward on her next date with the guys she’s seeing, she worries that he’ll ignore his attraction in favor of gossip that might’ve been spread about her. Now she wonders if it’s worth it to shoot her shot with a guy that didn’t offer to walk her home after a three hour date together. 

    “It was such a good breakup, if there is such a thing.”

    Bachelorette Recap w/ Scheana Shay

    Bachelorette Recap w/ Scheana Shay

    Welcome back to The Viall Files: Bachelorette Finale Edition! Today we are joined by Scheana Shay of Vanderpump Rules, to dive into the explosive drama of the ending of this first ever double Bachelorette season. We kick things off by diving into the situation with Tino and Rachel, breaking down the fight around Tino cheating. While we feel there is no redemption, we wonder if Rachel brought Tino on to try to find a solution or just to yell at him because rightfully so, she’s been hurt. We reflect on the mess of the situation and realize this may have been Rachel’s biggest fear, given a season designed to give constant rejection. We then rejoice in having a happy ending with Gabby and Erich! We break down the texting controversy with Erich and dive into why while his actions weren’t perfect, they serve to highlight how things can change so quickly on the show. We also break down the announcement of the next Bachelor, Zach Shallcross! And we recap all the crazy antics that happened tonight with Zach, with them putting him on the spot to remember names, initial thoughts, crazy facial reactions, and already having America vote on the First Impression Rose. This is an episode you won’t want to miss! So, let’s get into it!

    Ask Nick - I’m Thinking Of Him While Having Sex With BF

    Ask Nick - I’m Thinking Of Him While Having Sex With BF

    Welcome back to another juicy and exciting episode of The Viall Files: Ask Nick Edition! On this show, we’re here again to bring on our callers to answer their burning questions and to help give advice to the situations that they are in. Our first caller is still having fantasies about her ex even though she is happy with her current boyfriend. She wonders if she is living too much in the past, describing a picture perfect situation she has created for herself and finding herself also worrying about the dangers of living in a fantasy. Our next caller shares that her boyfriend broke up with her because he thought she traveled too much, while he himself was away on a boys’ trip. Even though he seems like he was the problem, she feels guilt and has difficulty moving on.  Our last caller worries that her boyfriend's new found career choice may take him away from where they currently live. Feeling like she is settled with a strong job, she wonders if it’s worth the sacrifice to move with him and how she should best react to his potential new career choice. 

    “You can do the right thing and still hurt his feelings.”

Keeping it Real

I have listened to Nick’s podcast for years. I love his candid recaps and advice. He doesn’t mince words. He calls people out for their bad behaviour in a direct but fair way. It’s very refreshing. Keep on keeping on!
