    “Pageant Girl Finishes Last” | Lipstick & Lies Ep. 007

    In this episode of Lipstick & Lies, host Jami Rice walks co-host Melissa Moore through the reality TV scandal known as “Scandoval” which millions of viewers watched play out on the Bravo reality TV series, Vanderpump Rules. Melissa is a new VPR viewer, so Jami gave her some history dating back to Season 2, when Ariana Madix joined the cast. In the aftermath of “Scandoval,” it seemed the entire internet were Ariana Madix STANS. Even so, Jami shares with Melissa her hot takes, and somewhat unpopular opinions, regarding Scandoval and those involved in the saga. As this recording progressed, and Melissa got more context to the story based on previous seasons, her viewpoint began to shift. Melissa even shares her own personal story of being unknowingly placed smack dab in the middle of someone else’s real life scandal.

    “How To Murder Your Husband” | Lipstick & Lies Ep. 006

    “How To Murder Your Husband” | Lipstick & Lies Ep. 006

    In this Halloween episode of Lipstick & Lies, Melissa shares with her husband, Steve and Jami, the true story of Nancy Crampton-Brophy played by (Cybill Shepherd) for the Lifetime movie, “How to Murder Your Husband.” Our poor husbands… and yours, may now sleep with one eye open after this conversation but you can’t take us too seriously when we’re dressed up in Barbie themed costumes!
    In this movie summary Lifetime states, “Nancy seemed to have a knack for writing about murder. The Portland-based romance-thriller novelist authored books about relationships that were tumultuous, while using seductive men on the covers to lure in her readers. Often, her books featured women protagonists who fantasized about killing their own husbands or fleeing their husbands and faking their own deaths. And then, in 2022 in a shocking turn of events, Brophy was convicted of killing her own husband.”

    “The Heiress Who Hu$tled Hollywood” | Lipstick & Lies Ep. 005

    “The Heiress Who Hu$tled Hollywood” | Lipstick & Lies Ep. 005

    In this episode of Lipstick & Lies, host Jami Rice walks co-host Melissa Moore through her own personal story about the time she met a wealthy heiress ..who turned out to be a prolific scam artist. It was 2018 when Jami shook hands with Mary Carole McDonnell, a Los Angeles based CEO and wealthy heiress who’d soon inherit multi-millions of dollars from her family’s trust. Only, everything Mary Carole had told people about herself for decades was a lie. She wasn’t a wealthy heiress ..even worse, she was a highly skilled con artist who’d scammed people and banking institutions out of over $50 million dollars. This wild story involves a phony heiress, a kidnapping for ransom lie, a controversial Beverly Hills entertainment lawyer, a shocking and mysterious death, and FBI investigation, and the Michael Jackson child abuse scandal. Though it seems like this story was ripped straight out of a movie, it’s all true. Jami breaks down all the details of this stranger than fiction story with all of the inside information you’d expect from someone who lived through it.
