Betches Co-Founders Aleen Dreksler, Jordana Abraham, and Sami Sage—aka the OG Betches friend group that started it all—welcome you to their pop culture group chat. Each week they cover all the latest in celeb drama, the hottest TV & movies out now, and never fail to say some v funny sh*t (ofc). Come for the hot takes, stay for the group chat vibe. (Formerly Betch Slapped)
What’s With Chris Pratt & Religion?, How Come Kim K Didn’t Post More About North’s Bday?, & Should Betches Launch An Airline?
Have you watched anything good lately? Well Jordana, Aleen, and Sami have, and fill you in on all their latest TV and movie finds. And yes, Everything, Everywhere, All At Once is discussed. Then onto everything, everywhere celeb drama. First up is Chris Pratt’s latest Men’s Health interview, and they unpack all the tea—re: Hillsong church accusations, comments about his son, and his place among the many Hollywood Chrises. Then, they couldn’t not debrief North West’s extravagant camp bday party, but are surprised by the lack of Kim K’s posts about it. Did Kim go to Staten Island once and finally become grounded? The show wraps up with a RHOBH recap, as Jordana, Aleen, and Sami discuss Diana’s callous comments about the CA wildfires—yikes Diana, yikes—and a new Betches airline is born.
Wait, Khloe K Is Dating A Finance Bro?, Was Kendall Jenner’s Relationship Real?, & Have Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston Been Hooking Up?
Tuning in live from sunny CA, Aleen, Jordana, and Sami are out west for the U Up? show in LA. They debrief the live event (surprise—they had a great time), and chat about dating today. Is it possible to meet someone in person anymore? Speaking of meeting people in person, they go through the roster of stars they’ve seen in LA. No Pete Davidson, but they drop some other big names. On the same thread of big names, they break down the latest celeb drama. Brace yourself, there’s a lot to debrief: Julia Haart is becoming the Jewish Kris Jenner, Khloe Kardashian’s new beau is a finance bro, Kendall Jenner’s break up, Brad Pitt’s new GQ cover, and of course, a chat about the new Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip. Say all that 10x fast.
Kim K Broke The Marilyn Dress, Justin Bieber’s Health Issue, & The Remi Bader Fat-Shaming Drama
Jordana starts today’s ep by debriefing the U Up? Live show in the cleaner, smaller New York—AKA Boston. Jordana, Aleen, and Sami are all going to the LA show next week, which will be the first time Aleen’s been to SoCal since her choker-wearing days. Obvi they can’t mention LA without a convo on the Kardashians, and how Kim K broke the Marilyn Monroe dress (yikes). They then talk about another LA star Justin Bieber, and his very scary facial paralysis. Next is a discussion of J.Lo’s new movie Halftime, before getting into the fat-shaming drama surrounding influencer Remi Bader. They wrap up with a chat about Britney Spears’ wedding (and her ex-BF wedding crasher), before debriefing how Erika Jayne can’t afford to pay $2 million in taxes. Have you seen her closet?
Julia Haart’s Interesting Sex Life, Prince Louis The Troublemaker, & Pete Davidson Plays Parent
Time has indeed passed, the clock continues to tick—AKA Jordana, Aleen, and Sami don’t have a ton of updates from the last time we all chatted. So, onto pop culture we go. Sami starts off by debriefing Julia Haart’s new book (re: the My Unorthodox Life star), and there’s a lot to discuss. No, it’s not PG, and Aleen even spits out her coffee after hearing one of the sex stories—you’ll def want to tune in. Back to PG programming, they segue onto celeb kids and discuss celeb parenting styles—think Prince Louis at the Platinum Jubilee and Pete Davidson taking Saint West on an outing sans Kim K. They wrap up by asking the big q we all wanna know: did Kylie Jenner name her baby yet?
Debriefing The Johnny & Amber Trial Verdict, The Top Gun Craze, & Celebs You Never Knew Were Scientologists
You’ll never guess which celebs Sami met in Italy. Now that you’re v curious, tune in to hear Sami share all the detes with Jordana and Aleen about her Italian adventure (including overhearing a couple’s argument—everyone loves an eavesdrop moment). And speaking of celebs and…um…arguments, Sami, Jordana, and Aleen go over the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial verdict. A lot to break down. Then a quick chat about the new Top Gun movie, Tom Cruise, and naturally, Scientology, before sharing some unpopular opinions about Harry Styles’ music. They wrap up by talking about TV shows and movies, and yes, Aleen is rewatching Succession. Give her a new show to watch in a 5 star review and comment.
Kourtney & Travis’s Wedding Spectacle, Khloe & Tristan’s Relationship Woes, & TV’s Hottest Crime Shows
This week in the life of Betches: Aleen had her first house pool party (a saxophone was indeed brought out), Jordana’s getting a massage, and Sami’s actually in Italy right now with her mom (jealous). Of course, you can’t bring up Italy without diving into the spectacle that was Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s wedding. Jordana and Aleen discuss all the detes, before having a quick chat about sister Khloe and Tristan Thompson. Should Khloe keep defending him? They wrap up the ep with some TV talk, including The Staircase (you have to watch) and Candy (another must-watch). Let them know your fav show in a 5 star review.
Johnny depp vs Amber
Your take on the Johnny and Amber trial was horrendous. Doesn’t seem like any of you actually watched the trial. You can’t say you feel bad for Amber and that this is a loss for women, when all of the evidence pointed at the fact that she was an abuser. You guys sounded like man haters on this episode.
HERE FOR IT
I love listening to the three hosts’ banter about pop culture stuff that’s mindless and fluffy (RHONY, Kardashians) because I feel like that’s the whole point of this podcast? Unsure why there are so many reviews complaining about this. Like, this is golden.
Stop talking about things you don’t have background in
I usually love this podcast but all 3 of you said you watched small clips of the Depp v Heard trial but haven’t seen the whole thing or have a deep understanding of it. Please stop giving your opinion then if you don’t have all the facts. You guys will do this with other topics/shows/etc and go on for 15 minutes about something you said you don’t know much about. You mentioned this is bad for regular women because of how domestic abuse victims can’t come forward now or how once again a man is in power? How about men who are domestically abused but can’t come forward because of social constructs? It’s more harmful to real abuse victims coming forward because Amber made completely false claims. The jury stated they didn’t believe anything she said in her testimony. Aleen said there wasn’t any evidence of abuse? There was so many times she admitted to abusing him on audio recording and he had proof of his injuries. Don’t mind if you guys have unpopular opinions but please do your research first before bringing it up on the podcast. Jordana was the only one on this topic to have any insight that made any sense.
