    Kathryn Edwards (Breaks Down RHOBH REUNION Part 2) - I

    Kathryn Edwards (Breaks Down RHOBH REUNION Part 2) - I

    Erika Jayne’s Co-Star Kathryn Edwards is back!!! You asked, we listened. After last week's epic three day reunion analysis, Kathryn is here to help us break down all that has transpired last night on Part Two of the epic Four Part RHOBH Reunion we have waited all season to watch! Was Erika slightly more sympathetic last night? Was that due to editing or the fact that we are so knee deep in this pretty mess that we temporarily forgot certain behaviors both on RHOBH and IRL social media over the past many months that didn’t exactly sit well with the gen public? As super sleuths, we discuss who knew what, where, and why and dissect the many statements and explanations made last night regarding one Girardi / Jayne marriage. Of course, we also break down the Hilton family dynamic, the tender moment between sisters, and the backstory many year build up that led Kyle and Kathy to end in tears. Somehow, we get completely sidetracked, in a good way, back to the days when Kathryn was on the show and take a trip down memory lane a la Münchausen’s, never before aired Eileen Davidson scene, what prompted Kathryn’s phone call earlier this week to Yolanda Foster and last, but certainly not least, Kathryn’s first ever RHOBH scene with Miss Faye Resnick!!!

    Adrienne Bailon & Israel Houghton (on The Cheetah Girls, The Real, RHOBH, BFF Kim K. & New Music!)

    Adrienne Bailon & Israel Houghton (on The Cheetah Girls, The Real, RHOBH, BFF Kim K. & New Music!)

    Adrienne Bailon and husband Israel Houghton step Behind The Rope. Adrienne starts at the beginning, being discovered by Ricky Martin when she was just a teenager. That led to girl group 3LW which led to girl group The Cheetah Girls. We discuss musical career highlights such as touring and working with Beyoncé, Celine Dion, Michael Jackson and Jessica Simpson and how this was an iconic time in music - Britney, Justin, need we say more. Adrienne has also acted, hosted a la MTV and appeared on Reality TV - no not just on Keeping Up With The Kardashians - but her very own show “Empire Girls”. Now Adrienne is one of the Daytime Emmy Award winning hosts of “The Real”. We get all of Adrienne and Israel’s opinions of Sharon Osbourne’s recent “departure” from The Talk, why “The Real” is such a revolutionary show, The View, and her “The Real” co-host, our very own Garcelle Beauvais. Adrienne breaks down RHOBH for us and whether she would ever join. Israel seems to have a strong opinion on this as well. Adrienne has also been busy lately appearing on “The Masked Singer” and having girls’ nights out with Kim Kardashian!! Of course, we discuss that night out and how Kim is going amid her looming divorce from Kanye. In other news, Israel has a brand new album “Feels Like Home Vol I” which we discuss plus what is next for this power couple!! Oh, and for those wondering, yes, these two do sing for us during this epic chat! We are not worthy.

    Jason Lee (on Hollywood Unlocked, Breaking "Khloe/Tristan Story", The Kardashians & BFFS Rihanna & Cardi B.)

    Jason Lee (on Hollywood Unlocked, Breaking "Khloe/Tristan Story", The Kardashians & BFFS Rihanna & Cardi B.)

    Jason Lee steps Behind The Rope. Media Mogul, Entertainment Journalist, Reality TV Star, Author. Of course, Jason is also the CEO, Editor-In-Chief and Founder of Hollywood Unlocked, THE Pulse of Pop Culture, media giant that breaks stories with 2.7M followers hanging on it’s every word. Jason was not always the self made media mogul we see before us today. We chat about humble early beginnings, role models such as Wendy Williams, Charlemagne tha God and Howard Stern and early days as a star of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop Hollywood. In an almost unprecedented move, Jason opens up about very publicly challenging CBS via #FreeJasonLee which led to the eventual release of his Reality TV Contract and discusses where his gusto to “take on” a major network comes from. We chat Nene Leaks and her own contract disputes with Bravo. Jason chats breaking the viral Jordyn Woods, Khloe Kardashian, Tristan Thompson “cheating” scandal, the “click power” of The Kardashians, other celebs which the public just cannot get enough of, set backs a la Karen Civil, and just how he manages to serve, stir, and deliver the tea while maintaining close celebrity friends like Rihanna, Cardi B, Lil’ Kim, Tiffany Haddish, Blac Chyna and more.

    EILEEN DAVIDSON (on RHOBH, Rinna, Erika, Denise & Being a Soap Legend!!!)

    EILEEN DAVIDSON (on RHOBH, Rinna, Erika, Denise & Being a Soap Legend!!!)

    Eileen Davidson steps Behind The Rope. Actress, Author, Model, Two Time Emmy Winner, Wife, Mother, Soap Legend, and last, but certainly not least, Real Housewife - Eileen Davidson! Eileen first came into our lives four decades ago through her Iconic role as Ashley Abbott on “The Young and The Restless”, a role which she is still playing today. Eileen chats about her entire Soap career which has included not only Y & R, but Santa Barbara, The Bold and The Beautiful and Days of Our Lives, the last including a record breaking five different roles, all off which has lead to two Daytime Emmy’s for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Eileen chats about her various other films and projects including, a highlight for us, The Last Sharknado. Of course we chat with Eileen about her RHOBH career as a full time Diamond Holder over three epic seasons which included "run ins” with the likes of Brandi Glanville, Lisa Vanderpump and Kim Richards, one of the most iconic RHOBH cast trips ever involving smashed glass and Harry Hamlin and the world learning the meaning of “Munchausen’s Syndrome”. Eileen chats about the status of her many RHOBH relations today, the legal troubles friend Erika Jayne (hey, we would like a part on Y & R too!) is going through, and the just completed season - more Erika, Hello Kathy Hilton and more! We discuss the unprecedented move by Bravo to hire actresses as Housewives the season Eileen and Lisa Rinna were hired, whether that formula works, and discuss others who have come and stayed or gone - Garcelle Beauvais, Denise Richards, Kim Fields (ALT Anyone?). Eileen has said in the past that she has “a lot less stress” in her life since RHOBH so we have to ask, would you ever go back and who on casts past or current would you not work with? Finally, Eileen chats about what it’s like to be married to Hollywood Royalty Husband Vince Van Patten, the secrets to a successful happy marriage in Hollywood and what projects are next up for this class act of an Icon!!!

    Kathryn Edwards (Breaks Down RHOBH REUNION Part One) - III

    Today our Epic Three Hour Break Down of this past week's RHOBH Reunion (Part I) with Miss Kathryn Edwards concludes!!! The full chat is available on our Patreon. 


    Erika Jayne’s Co-Star Kathryn Edwards is back!!! This time she is here to help us break down all that has transpired last night on Part One of the epic Four Part RHOBH Reunion we have waited all season to watch! Will we, the viewer, finally get the answers we so deserve regarding Erika Jayne’s much publicized divorce from Tom Girardi or will we be left, once again, with more questions than when we first started. A few weeks ago we sat down with Kathryn for what turned out to be, a two day, two part viral chat regarding working with Erika, her treatment of production and co-stars, and behind the scenes filming secrets of her spending. Kathryn voiced what we have all been thinking and feeling all season long. Kathryn voiced what none of the other RHOBH cast had the voice to say, although our three time guest champ Sutton Stracke sure came close, "Erika, this is not okay” and “There Are Victims To Consider”. We could not think of a better person to return to help us break down last night’s RHOBH Reunion Part I - Garcelle vs Rinna, Eye Rolls, Dorit’s Run on Monologue, Best / Worst Dressed and oh, so much more. All this and we are only getting started.

Best Insider Scoop for all things Bravo

David has the best stories about his close encounters with my favorite Bravolebrities. This podcast is probably the only one where a lot of Bravo folks are willing to open up and give us some much needed inside scoop.

JustPonti ,

Quintessential supplement to any Housewives fan!

Reveals a lot more backstory and behind the scenes stuff with the housewives and friends of the show! 👍🏼👍🏼
