We break down reality TV as though it was, like, totally real! We produce a variety of podcasts on Real Housewives, Below Deck, 90 Day Fiancé, and more. Let the wild kiki begin!
#246 90 Day Fiancé, The Other Way, Season 3, Ep. 5: Facing Fears
This week on TOW, Alina (and the rest of planet Earth) finds Steven’s behavior bizarre and risky when he decides to “hitchhike” in Turkey by throwing himself in front of passing cars. Ellie and Victor arrive in Providencia and witness the devastation firsthand. While their house is still standing, there is no infrastructure or services, leaving the couple in dire straights, wondering what to do. Jenny and Sumit continue to not get married (yawn). Armando and his father finally have a candid conversation. Evelin throws Corey under the bus for the 50th time and Raul prepares to do the same. Ari takes the holy water ice-bucket challenge.
#245 90 Day Fiancé The Other Way, Season 3, Ep. 4: From Soup to Nuts
Corey gets a steaming mouthful of dick from Evelin’s evil sisters. Steven and Alina arrive in Turkey. Alina takes her mama’s advice and tells Steven he WILL be staying with her, even if there’s no skoodilypoop. Happy wife, dude...Ariela takes advantage of her last few hours of Leandro’s visit to torture Bini and make him as jealous as possible, and Wish is NOT HAVING IT. Victor arrives in San Andres and he and Ellie reunite. Kenny, Cassy, Armando, and Hanna arrive at Armando’s parents' house and get a heartwarming reception. Sumit is STILL NOT MARRYING JENNY (and at this point, no one besides Sumit’s parents even cares). To see the video of this episode, including Brianna’s adorable new heart-shaped Kate Spade bag, head to our Kiki and Kibbitz YouTube Channel.

#244 90 Day Fiancé The Other Way, Season 3, Ep. 3: Flight for Life
This week on #90DayFianceTheOtherWay, Jenny’s hopes are crushed and Bini invites his ex-girlfriend and her amazing butt to go out with him, Ariela, and Leandro (turnabout is fair play, right?). Ellie heads to Colombia, despite not knowing where Victor is. Corey gives Evelin an unwelcome gift. Kenny’s daughter shows up in Mexico, prompting an emotional scene. Alina sets a trap for Steven.
#243 Real Housewives of New York BONUS Episode: Martin the Boxing Coach!
Martin hijacks our show and makes himself host before we even get started. That's just fine with us because he is hilarious. Get his hot takes on what former housewife he things should come back to the show, relationships (hint: you don't need a man to validate you!), his own love life, and more. We love this guy!

#242 90 Day Fiancé The Other Way, Season 3, Ep. 2: Testing Trust
Jenny faked us all out last week, because 一 SURPRISE! 一 her visa wasn’t *actually* disapproved; it was just a “glitch.” So, she’s got another few months’ respite. But the immigration attorney suggests another plan. Ariela’s ex-husband shows up and Ari seems to be doing whatever she can to make Biniyam jealous (and it’s working). We find out what Steven’s secret is . Evelin has found yet another way to stick it to Corey. Armando and Kenny are back (cue riotous applause) and they’re planning their wedding and it’s soooo cute. We’ve talked through Ellie’s and Victor’s story and determined that he’s a snack and she’s a big dummy.
#241 Real Housewives of New York, Season 13, Ep. 17: The Doppelgang’s All Here
It’s the final episode of Real Housewives of New York, Season 13, and the ladies are back at Ramona’s Hamptons house, rubbing their sequin-covered tatas together, because that’s what they do. Sonja explains how she previews the goods of her prospective suitor. An impersonation swap party has each lady matched with another housewife with whom they had beef. Somehow, instead of coming to blows, they bring each other to happy drunken tears (you just never known with this group). Next week is *not* the reunion! In fact, we’re not sure when it will be! But stay tuned for our exclusive interview with Martin the Boxing Coach next week. Join our Patreon at https://patreon.com/kikiandkibbitz for more exclusive cast interviews and bonus content!
Enjoy the podcast!
Below Deck... good to not good
I really miss Brianna and Jen’s version for Below Deck recaps.
I was cringing at the misogynistic comments on the reunion recap from these guys, especially John. Loving the serial cheater and perpetually horny Gary, making excuses for him, and calling him “romantic” with “a lot of love to give”... and then attacking Sydney’s character, comparing her to a 60s secretary servicing her boss?! How about holding the BOSS accountable? Also, she didn’t say she is now dating her current captain, she said she was dating *A* captain in the industry. Even more gross was John joking how he would want to hire her to work for him. Grow up.
PS - learn how to properly pronounce “throuple” [ thruhp uhl ] since you love saying it so much 🤦🏽♀️
Worth a listen
Update: please consider moving the Below Deck guys to a different pod. I do not enjoy them at all. On a positive note, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Mary! Briana tries to be polite and PC but Mary just lays it out there with no filter . They are a perfect duo for this shoe!
I didn’t expect to enjoy this podcast so much. When it showed up on my recommended list (or wherever I saw it), I admit I did a small eye roll because there are so many Bravo podcasts and I am not looking for another. I decided to give it a try and I am glad I did. I love it! The topics might be the same as other pods but the commentary is so good and I love their sarcasm.
