    “A Quartet of UK Creeps”

    Co-Horts! We have reached season 19 (!), leading it with one of our “Quartet of Creeps”--UK style! We have stories of creepiness from the worlds of entertainment, punditry and a tale about an Irish woman who really disliked her British boss. These stories are more of an overview than a deep dive into s****y behavior, and we always reserve the right to revisit any or all of them as solo episodes.
    Trigger Warnings: Sexual assault, murder, racism, sexism, transphobia, and general assholery.

    Howard Hughes: Billionaire & Creep

    Howard Hughes: Billionaire & Creep

    What a Creep
    Season 18, Episode 10
    Howard Hughes
    An old-timey Hollywood Creep is a longtime fan favorite of this show. We feel it is time to talk about a billionaire who was acclaimed as an original thinker (he honestly was, though) and also one of Hollywood’s most prolific swordsmen.

    Howard Hughes either inherited a fortune or grew a nice inheritance (more on that later) at the age of 19 and would go on to be one of the wealthiest people of the 20th Century while also innovating the worlds of business, aviation, real estate, and most notably--motion pictures.
    He was also a manipulative, abusive Creep who treated women like trash and was not all that great to anyone who worked for or was related to him. Leonardo DiCaprio played him in the Martin Scorsese film The Aviator and got many of the essential details correct but missed an opportunity to expose his more douchey behavior.

    Thankfully--this is what we do here at What a Creep!

    Trigger Warnings: Sexual assault, coercive control, and general assholery.

    Season 18, Episode 9
    The Golden Globes & The Hollywood Foreign Press

    It’s awards season. Let’s talk about the Golden Globes and the Hollywood Foreign Press, a collection of journalists and photographers that cover Hollywood for foreign media markets. This story involves bribery, sexual assault, and racism. The movie based on this story would probably be nominated for a Golden Globe in the Best Comedy or Musical category.

    Lizzie Borden (Fall River, Massachusetts) & NON-Creep Elizabeth Montgomery

    Lizzie Borden (Fall River, Massachusetts) & NON-Creep Elizabeth Montgomery

    What a Creep
    Season 18, Episode 8Lizzie Borden (1860-1927)
    “Creepy Murder Mystery”

    “Lizzie Borden took an axe. Gave her mother 40 whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41”--Children’s rhyme late 19th century/early 20th century.

    Lizzie Borden was just another 32-year-old New England single woman who loved her family and was devoted to her church. On the morning of Thursday, August 4, 1892, her world turned upside down with the murder of her father and stepmother in her home. Each was hit multiple times in the head with an axe and with no witnesses, and Lizzie was the only one in the house when the crimes occurred--she was charged with their murder.

    What happened next was one “trial of the centuries” the media likes to play up along with a mystery that has never been solved. Lizzie was acquitted and lived the rest of her life as a pariah.
    Who were the Bordens, and why would anyone want them dead? If Lizzie didn't do it, who did? Did her sister Emma know the truth behind the murders? Why is her crime still a source of fascination with dozens of films, books, and documentaries about this one crime? We will discuss this in today’s creepy murder mystery!

    Nicole Daedone & "One Taste" and NON-Creep Dr. Ruth Westheimer

    What a CreepSeason 18, Episode 7
    Nicole Daedone and OneTaste

    Nicole Daedone is the founder OneTaste, which positioned itself as a wellness company that preached the practice of what she called “orgasmic meditation,” or OM.
    OneTaste made $12 million a year at one point, and Gwyneth Paltrow and Khloe Kardashian sang Daedone’s praises. But eventually, it was revealed that Daedone was less of a wellness guru and more of a leader of a sex cult or a prostitution ring that exploited trauma victims and others that needed healing.
