Such a breath of fresh air
This pod is so positive and upbeat and makes ya feel good with every episode I love knowing that even though superstars have had trying times that they worked through them and are telling others that are struggling to be strong and never give up and always have courage and be who you are and always strive for greatness and be a champion awesome podcast love it !!!
Hi Lillian you did such a outstanding interview with Mandy rose and Dana Brooke recently
Stop trying to be a therapist.
I love learning about the real lives of WWE superstars, their struggles and how they overcame them. What bothers me is that Lillian gives advise that she’s not qualified to give. Lillian is a journalist, not a therapist or psychologist. What’s worse is that she tries to relate with the Superstar by sharing a personal story that is not at all similar to the trauma the Superstar went through. I’m sure she means well but it’s condescending.
