What a Creep: Frank Sinatra (Replay)

What a Creep: Rex Harrison (Old Timey Actor Creep!)
From Henry Higgins to Doctor Doolittle, Rex Harrison is one of Hollywood’s most popular leading men of the 20th Century. With his tall stature, deep booming voice, and his undeniable confidence—audiences ate him up whether he was playing a deceased sea captain in The Ghost and Mrs. Muir or Julius Caesar. “Sexy Rexy” as he was known led a life full of swagger, luxury, success, and often—tragedy.
What a Creep: Bobby Flay (Creepy Chef)
Bobby Flay is a celebrity chef who has hosted 16 (!) cooking shows and specials on The Food Network and The Cooking Channel including “Boy Meets Grill” and “Beat Bobby Flay” - a show that Anthony Bourdain once commented on saying, “Beat Bobby Flay sounds promising until you realize it's about cooking. He’s also a cheatin’ husband and a low-stakes creep - the kind you might encounter in the office and think, “Ugh, that guy sucks.”

What a Creep: Gwen Shamblin Lara (HBO Max "The Way Down" Cult Creep)
Gwen Henley Shamblin Lara was the founder of a popular Christina diet program called “The Weigh Down” whose followers were instructed to use God as their guide to lose weight and overcome eating issues.

On May 29, 2021, she died in a plane crash along with her second husband for Tarzan in Manhattan actor Joe Lara, her son-in-law Brandon Hannah, and several members of her church on their way to a MAGA rally.
What a Creep: "The Gainesville Killer" (Inspiration for Scream's "Ghostface")
Did you know that the movie SCREAM was inspired by a true crime? We didn’t. Danny Rolling, the Gainesville Ripper, murdered five students in Gainesville, Fla., in August 1990, which all but shut down the college town. And it turned out he had murdered before but didn’t get caught until years later. This is a rough one y’all. Trigger warnings including child abuse, rape, mutilation, and decapitation
How did I not know about this podcast?
My fav thing to do is listen to podcasts while making challah for the sabbath. I’ve been on this true crime kick but needed a palette cleanser, and then I found you two lovely ladies! Thank you so much! I can’t wait to listen to them all!!!!! You both rock and love the saucy language bc it make me feel better about myself. Lol!
I just learned about this podcast a couple of months ago and am loving it. The hosts have great energy together and they handle what could be difficult topics in a humorous yet thoughful way.
My husband has taken to requesting to listen to an episode while we work on a puzzle. We both find it satisfying to hear creeps being called out for the creeps they are, since we can't always do that in our everyday life.
