    Lizzo Could Write 'Blonde,' But Joyce Carol Oates Couldn’t Write “Juice”

    Ej had her baby! Even though Brittany tries and fails to get the name Giuseppe off the ground, we promise Ej gave her newborn an iconic name. That being said, we share some news about the podcast’s future as Ej goes on maternity leave and get in one episode full of people who can’t stop pissing us off beforehand, like everyone behind Blonde, a movie so bad it led to an online debate about whether or not non-hotties can write about historical hotties. Other topics discussed: the Try Guys Try Infidelity; the right’s uproar over Lizzo playing James Madison’s crystal flute and EJ quizzes Brittany on some of our notable past himbos.Links referred to in this episode:

    Forget ‘Don’t Worry Darling,’ It’s Dahmer Time (feat. Ceecee Jacobsen)

    Forget ‘Don’t Worry Darling,’ It’s Dahmer Time (feat. Ceecee Jacobsen)

    With the Adam Levine sexts leaking and the Celtics head coach getting fired for cheating on Nia Long, this has been a banner week for s****y straight men. Luckily, on TikTok we have a new healthy model for masculinity: La Bussi, the new mascot for the Sabadell public transit system, a horrifying monstrosity who nonetheless has an extraordinary amount of swagger. Other topics discussed: the Miami Boys’ Choir (and whether or not they’ll be milkshake ducked); why Netflix should stop hiring hot people to play serial killers; more Don’t Worry, Darling drama, and whether children should be allowed on planes.

    Adam Levine Is a Show-Stopper, Homie Hopper, Drama Starter (feat. Huddy)

    Adam Levine Is a Show-Stopper, Homie Hopper, Drama Starter (feat. Huddy)

    Is it a good idea to DM your recently dumped Instagram model mistress to ask if it’s OK if you and your supermodel pregnant wife name your baby after her? No, and while you didn’t need to be told that, Adam Levine of aggressively mediocre elevator band Maroon 5 fame apparently did. Other things you probably don’t need to be told: don’t get leg-lengthening surgery (ladies love a short king!), don’t get your sex education from 2 Girls 1 Cup, and don’t sleep on Wisconsin, the most premium vacation destination in our great nation. Feat. Huddy of “All the Things I Hate About You” fame, who finally reveals to the olds what a “homie hopper” is (Adam Levine could relate!) and shares that he dropped the Lil from his name to share the rawest, most real version of himself. Same, king! Also featuring an extremely impassioned synopsis of the Diane Keaton body swap comedy “Mack and Rita,” a film so bad that it gave Brittany COVID.Links referenced in this episode:

    Does Prince Harry Know Who Trisha Paytas Is? (feat. Sweaty Oracle)

    Does Prince Harry Know Who Trisha Paytas Is? (feat. Sweaty Oracle)

    After months of speculation that the Palace was soft-launching the Queen’s death, Brittany and Ej break the news, Newsroom-style, that Queen Elizabeth II passed away at the tender age of 96….only to be replaced by her son, a boiled lunchroom carrot who secretly dreams of becoming a Horse Girl’s tampon. This week on DLTF, we talk Queen group threads and death memes (including one featuring a famously very pregnant influencer), the surprisingly inspiring (if not gross) love story of Charles and Camilla, racists pants-shitting over Halle Bailey’s casting in The Little Mermaid, and Martha Stewart’s incredibly horny Green Mountain Coffee sponcon. Feat. Sweaty Oracle, the Broadway DeuxMoi, to spill the tea on Lea Michele’s Funny Girl debut (why were there so many cameras in the audience on opening night???) and the real divas in the FG cast.

    Chris Pine and Harry Styles Spit In Our Mouths Challenge (feat. Chrissy Chlapecka)

    Chris Pine and Harry Styles Spit In Our Mouths Challenge (feat. Chrissy Chlapecka)

    This week for DLTF’s 50th episode (!) Brittany returns from her vacation to dissect Don’t Worry, Darling’s Venice Film Festival fracas, specifically Spitgate and whether Harry Styles spitting on Chris Pine is more than a figment of our collective horny imagination. We also discuss Leo sending Camila Morrone to the Island of Ancient Girlfriends, Lea Michele’s flop of a redemption profile, how TikTok thinks Marco Polo is a front for sex traffickers, and our horniness for Brendan Fraser.

    Don’t Worry, Darling, About Harry Styles’ Oral Sex Scenes (feat. Luke Cook)

    Don’t Worry, Darling, About Harry Styles’ Oral Sex Scenes (feat. Luke Cook)

    Most things are fake on the internet, but at least one thing is real: Yung Gravy’s eternal, abiding love of MILFs, as demonstrated by his PDA with Addison Rae’s mom Sheri at the VMAs on Sunday. This week, we celebrate the couple for raising MILF awareness in America as well as dissect the outrageously addictive ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ drama, the stripper pole-centric moral panic gripping parents nationwide, social media platforms’ obligation to influencers, proper airport attire, and of course, himbos. Featuring actor and comedian Luke Cook discussing the latter subject. Also, it’s corn!Links referenced in this episode:

Will Smith Episode

You both continued to bash Woody Allen as a sex offender, but he has never been charged with any crimes. Woody Allen and Mia Farrow were never married. His relationship with his wife is pretty gross, but she never was his daughter, even legally.

I love it!

The bad reviews confuse me. I find it very funny and always up to date which is fun. Def give it a shot if you like internet and celebrity gossip!

Unhappy customer 4 ,

Insufferable hosts
