    We Got Sued! "I See London, I See France," Part 2!

    This week, we get into what went on during our trip to London and how reality show drama can have real life consequences. We talk about seasonal affective disorder and depression management, being competitive for attention, who was jet lagged and which one thing the three of us all had in common. Come on a trip with us to the London Dungeons, get kicked out of pubs with us and see all of our London adventures that weren't shown on TV! Take a deep dive with us into what it's like to be sued, getting lumped together as a stereotype and just why we get so defensive about how we are edited.

Kara spills her behind the scenes stories from working as a princess in Walt Disney World, how she won "America's Hottest Bartender," and what her former Disney co-workers thought of her posing for Playboy. The girls get into just how fierce the competition was between Playmates for the coveted annual title, drama on the job at Playmate promotions, the differing loyalties at the mansion and a few Playmate bullies.

The producers tried to paint you girls like you were Alvin, Simon and Theodore.

love it a lot !!!!! ,

New fan; the ladies deserve their ad revenue

Bridget and Holly didn’t get paid at first for the Girls Next Door so those complaining about ads should realize that they’re finally getting some of their worth financially! Not only that but they’re just as fun as they were in the show and a pleasure to listen to! They’re professional and knowledgeable on their topics and furthermore are as fair and as kind as they can possibly be when speaking about Kendra and Hef.

I was a teenager when the Girls Next Door came out and I only vaguely remember it; my cool older cousin watched the show and loved Holly in particular.

What strikes me looking back on it is the huge influence the girls and Playboy had on our culture in the 2000s, and specifically that of the teen girl experience growing up in the Paris-Britney-boy band-OC era. I’ve been watching the show for the first time on Tubi and the truth of the situation the girls were in often makes me sad despite all the nostalgic glamour and lighthearted campy framing. The podcast takes some of that bitter taste off and is a lifesaver for me to listen to while doing all sorts of things in my own life. Wishing the best to Holly and Bridget, you guys deserve it.
