Desiree is fed up ,

Loving the guest hosts

I love Keep It but had been feeling like it was hit or miss for a bit there, but with the recent revolving guest hosts I feel it’s revitalized. I wish Franchesca was a mainstay. The chemistry is there and I love her in general, but also kind of wouldn’t be mad if it was just Louis and Ira from here on out with random guests.

sorry but also not sorry ,

Corny

Lukewarm takes from people who are whiney and as funny as prostrate cancer

popsiclesaregross ,

Fake woke

The takes are just seeped in misogyny disguised as fake concern for celebrities
