One day they'll give us 1-800-WHO-THEM, but for now you'll have to remember that it's a 619 (Thanks, San Diego!) area code so you don't get some sort of sex line. (Or so we've heard!) Thank god enough people remembered the correct number, because today we're talking about Elizabeth Gillies (#spon), why A Walk to Remember is *actually iconic* (but is it tho?), Nikki Blonsky from the movie Hairspray, why Becky G was dragged off a Fifth Harmony concert stage (#cursed), Georgina Chapman and why how much we'd pay to see Long Island medium Theresa Caputo at a casino. (A: Not much.)
After beginning the episode with a story about the two Whos (and two Thems) Bobby encountered on a recent flight, we move on to the following topics:
- Sam Smith's new boyfriend
- Grace Gummer's new boyfriend
- Sofia Vergara's request
- Mandy Moore's endoscopy
- Jude Law's sweatpants
- Rita Ora's balloons
I assure you that these topics are all profoundly interesting.
Your thoughts on Pioneer Woman (Anne Ma-)Ree Drummond? (Yes, that's her real name!) We'll start with those. Then, exactly why Shania Twain has NOT met Brad Pitt—he truly does not impress her...much, why Josh Gad's tweets are suspect, if Mandy Moore's dye job changed her career trajectory, if Bella Thorne is *actually* dating YouTuber named Tana Mongeau and blah blah blah who the hell cares about Colin Jost. Join us!
Despite Bobby's irrational frustrations with Ree Drummond (aka The Pioneer Woman), her appearance on last week's People cover has made her impossible to ignore. And after sharing some fun facts about her and Ladd (can you believe both of them have double letters in their monosyllabic names?!?!), we provide you with a Kevin Can Wait Update™, discuss Eva Marcille's big return to reality TV, and provide proof that breaking up with Heidi Klum is hazardous to one's wellbeing.
Q: Did the blinds about the (alleged) triple Kardashian pregnancy THREE YEARS AGO? A: Depends on how devious you consider Kris Jenner to be. Plus, Wendy Williams becomes the center of a major Daily Mail investigation, we decipher the Skarsgårds from the Sarsgaard and Scheana Shay does groundbreaking #spon for a lawyer. One more double-sided Q: Does Donatella Versace know who George Bush is? Does George Bush know who Donatella Versace is?
After opening the episode with a VERY special unboxing segment (yes, we understand unboxing is an ineffective concept on a podcast), we bring you a politics-adjacent Kevin Can Wait Update™, followed by big stories on: Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott, Fergie's smoothie, and--unfortunately--Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder. Turns out Reed got pregnant because Somerhalder threw her birth control pills in the toilet, but before you get outraged...read her Notes App screenshot. (We were unable to provide audio from Nikki and Ian's interview because the podcast it came from mysteriously deleted the episode...hmm...)
And then there's Rita, who was so busy this week singing covers, releasing music videos, and wearing fanny packs on her shoulder.
Did you watch The Emmys? Wondering who that announcer was? Well, you're not alone. That guy! Plus! So much more, including: Emmy winner Ann Dowd, rapper Lil Peep (yes, the guy with the plentiful face and neck tattoos who is ALLEGEDLY dating Bella Thorne), singer Dua Lipa, the break up of Hayden and Rachel and brand new Aussie Bachelorette, Sophie Monk. (Australia, tell us, do you claim her?)
Fresh off the first shows of our Fall 2017 Tour (HAVE YOU BOUGHT TICKETS YET?!), we get right back into it with a discussion about some very important, very new Them-adjacent Whos: Francia Raisa (the woman who gave Selena Gomez her kidney) and Taylor Goldsmith (the man who gave Mandy Moore his heart).
Also in this episode: Shawn Mendes's favorite scent, a Kevin Can Wait Update, some HUGE Rita Ora news, and the fight that left Mario Lopez's phone shattered in a Las Vegas gym.
Knock, knock? It's been a while since I've done that joke, right? It's time for another Who's There? on the first day of our Big Fall Tour. (See you tonight in Brooklyn, ya'll!) First, you (yes, YOU) get down to the bottom of why John Stamos was at that random Nina Dobrev-hosted lake party. Then, last night's telethon. Did you watch it? Lindsey did. Plus, what it feels like to wake up after surgery and realize that Eric & Jessie: Game On is the only show left on TV. And do Stephen Dorf and Elle Fanning keep in touch?
We're back from a vacation that wasn't with a brand new episode! After a quick Kevin Can Wait Update, we talk about your FAVORITE Bachelor ever, Arie Luyendyk Jr.! Or maybe he's your LEAST favorite Bachelor ever! Or maybe you don't even remember him! Or maybe you swore off watching every entry in the Bachelor franchise!!! The point is, this Arie guy is dull. Also in today's episode: a Property Brother was conned out of $80,000 worth of magic tricks before he was a Property Brother, Paul Hollywood made a dumb decision, and Margot Robbie didn't know her.
Anyone feel like they didn't hear ENOUGH about Kaley Cuoco's partnership with / love of Panera's new Beverage Station? Well, lucky for you, there's a lot more where that came from. Beyond Kaley's love for low-cal beverages, we've got an explanation of why James Blunt appears to be *everywhere*, why even a SEVENTEEN YEAR OLD didn't get Katy Perry's "Swish Swish" video, if Swipe Up is the new Link in Bio, and why John Stamos was hanging out with Nina Dobrev and Chord Overstreet at an '80s Labor Day party.
Look, we know Catherine Zeta-Jones is a Them, but her new line of home goods, aptly named Casa Zeta-Jones, is *absolutely* a Who. After exploring her minimal--though immensely satisfying--internet presence (have you ever SEEN an Instagram grid as good as hers?!), we move on to stories about Derek Hough's love for veganism, the way Us Weekly covered Abigail Anderson's wedding (Spoiler: they don't show the bride's face), and play a special Labor Day game of 'Labor Day or Labor Nay'.
First we tips from Fame Game author and all-around celebrity expert, Rachel McCord, by reading her website. Then, we use those tips to investigate the recent (and past!) scandal's of Louise Linton—yes, the Instagram getting-off-the-plane lady. Plus, did LOST produce any Thems? And we discover the most important thing that happened surrounding MTV's VMAs this year. (No, it wasn't any of the actual awards.)
Well well well, Bobby finally sat down and watched not ONE but TWO movies about an unexpectedly romantic season in a vineyard over the weekend, and has plenty to say about the experience. We chase that full-bodied cabernet sauvignon with a little chatter about Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi's 100% totally real engagement, Jessie J's love of Cheetos, Dylan Sprouse's (the non-Jughead Sprouse) hypnotic non-admission of guilt, and--after a rundown of this year's Whoiest VMA nominees--the most UPSETTING Rita Ora story of 2017.
Are you ready for Summer in the Whoniverse?
We're back after last week's technical difficulty—which may have been caused by the eclipse? What else was caused by the eclipse? The sudden resurgence of Bonnie Tyler (and her back-up band, DNCE). Plus, some bonus goss for our weekly Kevin Can Wait Update; CBB's Gemma Collins and Sarah Harding, Jenna Bush's brief stand-up comedy career and a disgusting candy store called The Sugar Factory.
Fam, did y'all watch the Teen Choice Awards? Cool, cool, cool. We didn't either. Not one second of it—not that it'll stop us from talking about it. Congrats to Musers(?) like Max & Harvey for...showing up? And to every cast member of Pretty Little Liars (but not Chad Lowe). On today's episode: Italian playboy Gianluca Vacchi, future college classmates Brooklyn Beckham and Sailor Brinkley Cook, Who? Them? Dick Wolf and What's Rachael Leigh Cook Up To?
Did you hear the news? Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder had a baby! Did you hear the other news? They named it Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder! Did you hear the other *other* news? They're taking "one month of silence" without visitors or phones, so it looks like we won't be hearing from them! (We doubt they'll make it more than a couple of days.) Also featured in today's episode: The Kevin Can Wait Update (a new weekly feature), Jeremy Meeks, (the hot felon who has a scorned wife and a billionaire girlfriend), and RITA—whose album was delayed *yet again*.
On today's call-in edition of Who? Weekly—we're shook over The Bachelorette finale (but mostly by her #spon); we're shook over how Anna Faris and Chris Pratt released their break-up news (Are iMessages the new Notes app?); we're shook that YouTube legend is living in the Celebrity Big Brother house; and we're shook by the breakout star of The CW's The Bold Type. (HINT: She's an icon and a legend.)
We couldn't help ourselves. Today's episode begins with even more chatter about Erinn Hayes, the ***FORMER*** star of Kevin Can Wait who was cruelly killed off by bigwigs at CBS who think America would prefer Leah Remini. (They're not wrong, but we're still sad about Erinn.) Later, the smelly pu...vagina story heard 'round the world--or at least in the general vicinity of Bravo--has finally come to an end. Next up, Lindsey makes Bobby play a game about two very recent Wholebrity weddings. And finally, Rita was allegedly chosen by teens.
First, the new Jessica Biel USA show that has us asking...Why are we seeing the poster for this wherever we go? Then, speaking of new TV shows, we get the full rundown (from a local!) of MTV's Laguna Beach knock-off, Siesta Key. Plus, who's Poppy and why is the internet obsessed with her? And why is Justin Bieber cancelling his world tour to hang out with a sexy preacher named Carl?
