    "Bucket List" (w/ Gabrielle Union)

    Genuine Hollywood icon Gabrielle Union ALERT! Again, this is a genuine Hollywood icon Gabrielle Union A-LERT. Matt & Bow can't believe she's joining them today on Las Cultch to discuss speaking truth to power in Hollywood, her dating "bucket list" back in her single days, Bring It On and the bizarre perception of her character Isis during the film's 20th anniversary, Love & Basketball bringing she and bestie Sanaa Lathan together, and work ethic vs. abusing yourself. Also, her new film The Inspection, based on a true story by writer-director Elegance Bratton, and how she drew on difficult experiences in Hollywood and at large to play the dark reality of her homophobic character Inez. All this, raising a queer child that's educating her, Grease and Rizzo's "There Are Worse Things I Could Do", Debarge, sitting with Janet Jackson at dinner while she orders the eggplant, her cousin Saweetie, our collective obsession with Jaboukie Young-White and the concept of "Miami vibes". The Inspection is in wide release right now and you should definitely check it out. Gabrielle Union! Ahhh!!!

    "Crushes, Enemies, and the Press" (w/ Pat Regan)

    "Crushes, Enemies, and the Press" (w/ Pat Regan)

    In the words of one cookie-loving mouse… “The bitch is back.” Pat Regan returns to Las Cultch bearing a newfound obsession with breaking the fourth wall and telling people their FYP is showing. Matt comes in to infect the masses with Meghan Trainor’s latest hooks, and Bowen asks a most pressing question in the culture: Who is mother for this? Stick around for asides on Housewives interactions, The White Lotus, and the concept of using acting to win a competition. And you better believe we draw similarities between Robyn Dixon and Nancy Salzman. Rule Number Culture: We made you look! (Sung to tune of Meghan Trainor song.)

    "Is It Botox or Utah?" (w/ Casey Wilson & Danielle Schneider)

    "Is It Botox or Utah?" (w/ Casey Wilson & Danielle Schneider)

    "Powerful" is a word that one could use to describe this episode of Las Culturistas, in which Matt & Bowen are finally joined by Bitch Sesh's gorgeous duo Casey Wilson and Danielle Schneider to touch grass, praise Mandy Moore, speak on forgiveness and vulnerability in a very Brene manner and ruminate on the concept of "hope". Also, all things RHOBH, RHOSLC, RHOP. Kathy Hilton: what's the deal there? Which of the franchises is the *darkest*? Is it better to interact with Housewives in the wild or simply not think of them as human? All this, OG soap operas, female character actresses living out loud, White Lotus season 2, The Vow season 2, The Mole, and more. Do you think psychics and mediums are to be believed? Do you want to see another trip where the Housewives ski? Would you use a gift certificate from a dog therapist to see a wizard? So many questions. *Some* answers. ALL fun. An honor to host these two! Love!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
