FOMO IRL w/ Jenny Mollen
Nikki & Brie are fresh off a jam-packed weekend with special guest Jenny Mollen!
The Bellas Open Up with a quick Father’s Day recap, and then they dive into their big weekend in Texas, where they did it ALL! After landing in the Lone Star State. After dinner with Nana in Boerne, they headed up to Dallas to meet the Bella Army and fit as much into their weekend as possible with tea time, amazing dinners, a few beers, awkward photos, and a lost wallet.
After they made it home, there was one member of the Bella Family that was counting gifts and didn’t appreciate that they didn’t get the most.
Go Firebirds! On this week’s episode of The Bellas Podcast, there are THREE graduates of Chaparral High School. This information has been verified by Wikipedia, so it’s legit.
Jenny Mollen, author of “City of Likes,” joins Nikki & Brie to talk about their Scottsdale connection, similar experiences with the same teachers, and favorite restaurants.
The conversation also includes raising kids that speak German all because of an old boyfriend, the pros and cons of social media for moms, fashion fails, and why the Bachelor & Bachelorette just aren’t as much fun to watch anymore.
Jenny also closes out the show with some special words for Inspiration & Affirmation that touch on the message of her new book, that we need to accept failure to grow.
Happy Hump Day!
As The Bellas open up on this week’s episode and get your engines going, there’s a startling moment of insight that has nothing to do with camels.
Nikki & Brie are still buzzing from their big weekend as Grand Marshals of the Toyota/SaveMart 350 at Sonoma Raceway in Napa for a unique experience. And it’s absolutely certain that if The Bellas are Grand Marshals at a race, it’s going to be a historic event! It was a busy day at the race track with old friend run-ins and new friends like Kurt Busch, Kyle & Samantha Busch, Michael Waltrip and celebrity spottings like Skeet Ulrich and a lot of NFL players. The Bellas also had a lot of observations on and off the track, including Daniel Suarez’s first win.
Then Nikki & Brie give their takes on the news of Britney Spears' wedding and her unbelievable guest list.
Nikki also threw Artem a stunning party for his 40th birthday party that went phenomenally…except for one thing. There was a scheduling miscommunication earlier in the day that led to a major fail. Nikki redeemed herself with some quick thinking, though, and threw a great party for Artem!
It started out innocent enough, but The Red Flag Game took a dramatic turn that nobody saw coming. The Bellas then tell us how much of a warning sign certain situations are when it comes to dating, annoying behaviors, confidence, being vocal during sex, and much, much more in a very revealing segment. So if you wanted to know a lot more about Nikki’s relationship with Artem or Brie’s relationship with Bryan, this episode is a must-listen for you.
Nikki & Brie close out this remarkable episode with inspiration & affirmation, highlighting a quote from NASCAR driver Joey Logano which focuses on the people you surround yourself with.
