This is an inspiring and much needed conversation around the importance of mental health.
Giving these two a platform is horrible, Hilary the lying faux Spaniard….& Alec Baldwin who supports her posting hundreds of pics a day of her children and selfies, he also posts everyday smh,and they wonder why they get these reviews?!
No one asked for this
On the plus side, this podcast could mean she only has time for 42 breastfeeding selfies a day instead of 50. On the downside, this fraudster has another forum for her psycho babble. Not only did she fake being Spanish....she faked being pregnant. We have proof.
Pathetic and Desperate
A desperate attempt to leverage Alec’s celebrity to attempt once again at making “Hilaria” more than just a very fake Spaniard born and raised in Boston. SMH
