    Friends having a Kiki with Tessa & Lila//Clubhouse Finds

    My friends are HERE! Both of these amazingly intersectional women have joined The Take On and you won’t regret hearing their amazing Stories! LILA TALKS & TESSA KANEENE are such queens who have so much to share with their experiences and ways of seeing the world. This is my personal favorite episode because it felt like I was with two of my good friends chatting about our experiences and POV’s as POC in America at a dinner party. If you’re missing your friends and want an engagingly fun convo, then this is the episode for you!

    Jake Hunter // @JakeHunterOfficial // TikTok Finds

    Jake Hunter Joined The Take On and we talked all things being an influencer and mental health. Jake understands that have millions of followers or an Emmy will NOT necessarily bring you happiness (btw he has both those things). We talk about happiness and how it’s more of a process rather than a destination. Jake is all James Dean exterior (FYI he’s gorgeous!) but all marshmallow and sweet on the inside. Jake created hilarious TikToks but has an amazing energy on Clubhouse and creates safe spaces for people to be their most authentic selves. If you’re feeling down and need a quick pick me up, then this is the episode for you.
    More about Jake:
    Jake Hunter is an Emmy winning actor and producer with over 1.5 million social media followers in Los Angeles, CA. Jake acted alongside Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones in The Comeback Trail, slated for release later in 2020. He is also producing the Shakespeare adapted play King Lear starring Al Pacino.
    On the digital front, Jake has showcased his comedic side on TikTok where his “Karen” themed series received over 125 million views. He was recently recognized by the Washington Post for his videos and currently has brand deals with Bang Energy, Draft Kings, and Raw Sugar.

    Shahs of Sunset's Shervin Roohparvar

    Two Persians in the House! Shervin Roohparvar joins The Take On and we talks all things Shahs of Sunset. I've been waiting for this conversation since Shervin joined the cast of Shahs a couple of seasons ago. Shervin is kind, an entrepreneur, and single so listen up ladies! We talks about how he navigates running his businesses as well as not falling into the traditional pitfalls and drama of reality TV. Shervin also talks about how he mended his friendship with GG, we were all happy to see that! My goal in life is to be a Shah myself and now that I know Shervin I'm one step closer. If you love Persians and you love Shahs of Sunset, then this is the episode for you!

    Married to Medicine's Dr. Contessa

    Married to Medicine's Dr. Contessa

    Calling all Bravoholics! Dr. Contessa my good friend is back again on The Take On! The only guest to come back again! I'm obsessed with Married to Medicine and that is mostly due to Contessa. Contessa had a tough and very personal season this year with her husband Scott and she DID NOT hold back on sharing her side of the story. Being a strong black woman on reality TV while also navigating her work as a doctor and being a wife and mother, which is not easy to navigate. I always love having friends drop by the Pod because we can be real and have fun as well. If you love Married to Medicine as much as I do, then this is the episode for you.

    Below Deck Sailing Yacht's Daisy Kelliher

    BELOW DECK in the House! Chief Stew Daisy Kelliher Joined The Take On and we got into all things Below Deck Sailing Yacht. Daisy went from Yachtie to TV gold, she is so entertaining to watch. And we talked what it's like working on a yacht as a woman in male dominated and chauvnistic industry like yachting. Daisy didn't know what she was getitng into doing reality TV but she is ready for a second season if that's in the cards for her. She was a fan favorite and I'm sure we would love to see her back managing her crew and all the high maintenance guests. If you love Below Deck and dream of being on a sailing yacht, then this is the episode for you.

    Entertainment Tonight's Brice Sander

    Entertainment Tonight's Brice Sander

    Bravo F*****g Bravo. Brice Sander joins The Take On and we dive into all that is the Bravosphere. He tells us all about what it’s like to interview THE Ramona Singer! Brice also talks being friends with Bravolebrities and what that entails. We also talk about how to make your way in Hollywood, and the finesse being a host requires. If you love all things Bravo TV, then this is the episode for you.
    More about Brice:
    I have what some would call an embarrassing encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture. But I’m not ashamed of it. In fact, I embrace it. Couple that knowledge with my training as a multimedia journalist and there was only one career path to take: entertainment news and new media. There is nothing I am more passionate about than entertainment. I think you have to be passionate about what you do for a living, or else you can’t live by the phrase, “Love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life.” And, trust me, that’s the phrase I plan to live by.

A Little Self-Awareness Please

First time listening. Maybe you’re unaware but at times, most of people on this podcast episode sounded like the racist Meghan-haters in the UK. Predicting divorce was a low. Unsubscribed.
