    Not so Sweet James: Newest Housewife Noella Bergener Pt. I

    Not so Sweet James: Newest Housewife Noella Bergener Pt. I

    Who knew a new housewife would bring us so many lawsuits to summarize? This episode focuses on newest Orange County Housewife, Noella Bergener, and her husband who goes by the trademarked and highly promoted moniker of Sweet James. Sweet James has gone through three divorces that we cover in this episode - his divorce from his first wife, his divorce from his law firm business partner, and his recent divorce from Noella. They say, there's nothing like a woman scorned, but after reading his former business partner's complaint, we think the saying should be amended to, "there's nothing like a former partner scorned." We had to split this into two parts because there was just so much alleged. A lot is unsavory so we want to reiterate that these were allegations made in court filings.

    Thigh Lifts, Boob Jobs, and Melting Face Fillers: Medical Malpractice

    Thigh Lifts, Boob Jobs, and Melting Face Fillers: Medical Malpractice

    In this bi-coastal Real Housewife medical malpractice episode we discuss the basics of what a medical malpractice claim is, why these types of lawsuits can be so difficult for a patient to prove and how malpractice insurance typically works. We give you some fascinating details about multiple malpractice lawsuits involving a RHOM house-husband nicknamed the "Boob God" and the Boob God's litigious response to negative reviews. Next you get to hear our commentary about the lawsuit between the RHOC's Nicole James and Terry Dubrow that ended up ruining Heather's $32K party. (The real crime is all that wasted sushi). Then we move on to a much more recent malpractice suit against Terry Dubrow and E! Entertainment, filed in federal court involving a thigh lift, and you guys, the complaint even has pictures. Head over to our Patreon for the docs if you aren't squeamish like Cesie and you share Angela's delight in medical details. Finally we end with a very recent malpractice lawsuit filed against Dr. Jen Armstrong with allegations of melting facial fillers. We end the episode with a discussion on fillers and litigation and we get extra nerdy with some peer reviewed studies in medical journals.

    Post-Reunion Tom and Erika Girardi Update III

    Post-Reunion Tom and Erika Girardi Update III

    Did you catch us in the new Jen Shah documentary on Hulu? In this episode, we share about our experience on that and then dive head first into many of the questions we got from you about the Girardi cases and Erika's behavior at the reunion. You all asked us such great questions and we hope this clarifies things further. We will likely put a pin in Girardi until we get another large case development. 
    We have just launched a new YouTube channel with extra content and a Patreon where you can support us and get benefits! Links to those are available below.

    Re-release - Shah Squad Fraud: The Arrest of Jen Shah

    Re-release - Shah Squad Fraud: The Arrest of Jen Shah

    We usually release episodes bi-weekly but given what is happening on SLC right now, we thought we should revisit our original episode on Jen Shah. This episode was originally first released on April 5, 2021. We will continue our Erika discussion next week and return to publishing every other week again. 
    In this emergency episode we discuss the recent, shocking arrest of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast member, Jen Shah. We explain how the alleged scheme functioned, what the charges against her are, our thoughts on Coach Shah's involvement, what a grand jury investigation entails, and how sentencing works. We can only assume this will be a multi-part series as Jen's case proceeds.

My favorite podcast!

The Bravo Docket is a total treat. It makes getting up on Mondays all the more enjoyable. The hosts are very smart and are great at conveying legal concepts and terms in an accessible way. For Bravo fans, this will give you a whole new perspective on the Real Housewives franchise. 10/10 recommend!
