Inspired by a lazy Sunday + 24 hours nap on the People's People's Couch, Sarah's co-host dreams become reality - an epic kiki with People's Couch OG, Emerson Collins (actor, producer, director, and part-time Bethenny apologist). They settle into the People's People's/People's Couch for a long ranging discussion on the ways in which Bethenny and Carole succeeded and stumbled translating their feud, the difference between being accountable and humble for a BH OG, and why it's important to be specific when calling RHONY 'boring' (cough cough, Ramona and LuAnn). Erika's tweets are a mess, but this convo is anything but - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 237!

Sarah tries to create the IG account @PrettyMess-y to describe her DMs on Hinge, when she receives a stern "too soon" from Mikey and Co. Undeterred by Erica's possibly-volunteer army of glam, Sarah logs on for an epic double episode with her fave triple threat, Richie Skye (news and entertainment journalist and pop culture expert). They unpack the many complexities inherent in discussing Erika Jayne's behavior on TV and online, possible reasons behind Mia and Dr. Wendy's already tumultuous relationship, and what the future holds for Gizelle vs Karen (a win for everyone). Sonja was inspired to finally make her toaster oven after this convo, because it's just that hot - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 236!

Sarah gets a visitor's pass to the Andy's Girls archives, and after getting past security (Sarah), play room (Sarah), and single's lounge (also Sarah), she stops by the gift shop and finds the perfect present - this never before heard AG kiki with the hosts of The Reality Is, Aarti and Noor. How well did their early summer predictions about New York, Beverly Hills, and Potomac stack up? It's a (Team) Crystal ball special ep!

Sarah frolics in her cloffice, yearning for a RHONY as splendid as her dress-and-shoe debt. The only thing that could make this moment greater? A watchable RHONY. And how about number two? An epic kiki with her fave Bravoholic writer (watch out Carole!), Jared Alexander (actor, writer for TheGrio). They unpack the possible spiritual connection between Ashley and Michael's marriage and Erika and Tom's mirage, how much of an influence Dorothy may have in Candiace and Karen's relationship (or lack thereof), and oh look, a bird (things more interesting than NY, ammiright). Sonja may be melting down in Salem, but this convo is hot, hot, hot - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 234!

Sarah Googles "Richards family reunions," curious to see which second cousin Kathy thinks of as her familial Hunky Dory. Deterred by the number of I Love Turtles shirts that show up instead, she calls up her spiritual relative, the Kim to her Kyle, and a shared lover of Kath - Damian Bellino (writer, producer, host of the podcast "You Might Know Her From, and OG of the AG). Apparently recording on Opposite Day, they share nice characteristics of their previous arch nemeses Richards sis, whether Karen and Gizelle are losing the smize behind their ongoing wink-and-a-smile battle royale (and why Potomac is perfection, regardless), and whether RHONY could reset with a full/majority cast reboot. Bethenny said this convo is so good, she's thinking of coming back - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 233! - JOIN/LEVEL-UP THE ANDY'S GIRLS PATREON, AND ENJOY EXCLUSIVE BONUS EPISODES, INVITES TO SPECIAL EVENTS, AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO GUEST CO-HOST ON A FUTURE EP: https://www.patreon.com/AndysGirls FOLLOW SARAH ON IG: https://www.instagram.com/damegalli/
Sarah shares her initial thoughts on the Potomac premiere, why Karen v Gizelle is a breath of fresh air, and how the focus on the cast's 'real' romantic relationships compare with RHONJ.

Deeply fulfilled after another perfect episode of Beverly Hills, Sarah awakes bright eyed and bushy tailed (Dear Hinge: bow-chicka-wow-wow), and immediately races to the People's People's Couch for a spiritual People's People's Court. She dials up the Hunky to her Dory, the Thoma to her Sina, and the official AG legal correspondent, Emily D. Baker (legal commentator, former prosecutor, and host of The Emily Show). They unpack Britney Spears' legal battle, and the freedoms Tom Girardi is afforded that she is not, a nuanced conversation around how one can empathize with Erika while still holding her to account, and why Sutton and Crystal's epic argument may stem from their opposing reactions to conflict. You'll never get to call Sarah's leather pants ugly, because this dame wears dresses instead - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 232! - JOIN/LEVEL-UP THE ANDY'S GIRLS PATREON, AND ENJOY EXCLUSIVE BONUS EPISODES, INVITES TO SPECIAL EVENTS, AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO GUEST CO-HOST ON A FUTURE EP: https://www.patreon.com/AndysGirls FOLLOW SARAH ON IG: https://www.instagram.com/damegalli/
Sarah thinks of her spiritual Housewives picks (Heather Gay, Shan for whom she will always stan)and realizes three's the charm/Curtin cuff. But who? Who? Flustered by a list of 100+ options - not nearly enough - she Zooms up the perfect guide for this quest: Jamie Stein ('Housewives empath,' and host of the podcast Deep Dive with Jamie Stein). They discuss the misconceptions associated with Monique's struggles on Potomac, "following the breadcrumbs" of Housewife energies, and Erika's spiritual imprisonment of disconnection. Ms. Jayne may sing about not giving many f**ks, but this convo certainly does - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 231! - JOIN/LEVEL-UP THE ANDY'S GIRLS PATREON, AND ENJOY EXCLUSIVE BONUS EPISODES, INVITES TO SPECIAL EVENTS, AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO GUEST CO-HOST ON A FUTURE EP: https://www.patreon.com/AndysGirls FOLLOW SARAH ON IG: https://www.instagram.com/damegalli/
Refreshed, renewed, and revitalized, Sarah once again opens the People's People's Couch for #ShotGirlSummer (upside: not near a highway like Bethenny's investment property). Schvitzing with joie de vivre and a lack of couch-side AC, she invites over one of her Bravoholic BFFs, and a fellow vaxxinista, Dylan Hafer (content manager, pop culture at Betches Media, host of the podcast Pop Alarm, and creator of @BravoByBetches). They discuss the question of audience intention on RHONY - is it the cast, or is it us - and the distortion that happens when OGs lose sense of the reality behind reality tv, why facts matter as much as intent and impact on BH, and the importance of understanding the nuances behind Crystal and Sutton's triggers/flaws. Kathy Hilton says Mazel Tov, and we all know what that means - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 230! - JOIN/LEVEL-UP THE ANDY'S GIRLS PATREON, AND ENJOY EXCLUSIVE BONUS EPISODES, INVITES TO SPECIAL EVENTS, AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO GUEST CO-HOST ON A FUTURE EP: https://www.patreon.com/AndysGirls FOLLOW SARAH ON IG: https://www.instagram.com/damegalli/ Watch "Do I Move You?"

Nature is healing because the People's People's Couch is welcoming back some IRL guests! Sarah celebrates this momentous return to in-person AG kikis the best way she knows how: by continuing to wear pajamas well after the morning hours, and chatting with one of her fave Bravoholic BFFs and multi-hyphenates, James LaRosa (writer, producer, director, creator, showrunner, and Garcelle superstan). They unpack the lens through which women's vulnerabilities and complications can be weaponized on Housewives and in pop culture, why Erika's divorce narrative doesn't match with previous season receipts, and what Britney Spears may have in common with possible RHOBH contender, Nicolette Sheridan. The People's People's Couch loves a vaccinated duo almost as much as Sarah loves Kathy's quirks - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 229! - JOIN/LEVEL-UP THE ANDY'S GIRLS PATREON, AND ENJOY EXCLUSIVE BONUS EPISODES, INVITES TO SPECIAL EVENTS, AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO GUEST CO-HOST ON A FUTURE EP: https://www.patreon.com/AndysGirls FOLLOW SARAH ON IG and help her hit 7k!: https://www.instagram.com/damegalli/
Upon learning the news that Kelly Dodd is retiring from Bravo in order to devote her life to charity work (being fired from OC really is such a mitzvah), Sarah celebrates the best way she knows how: a wide-ranging Bravoholics kiki with her fellow Doxxinista, Samantha Bush (staff writer at The Dipp, host of the pod "Hot Off the Mess," and Instagram's @BravoHistorian). They discuss what the OC reboot means for content creators, the impact of fame on the notorious housewife Second Season Curse, and what the Fox Force Five is getting wrong about...everything. Kelly and Braunwyn may be gone, but this ep has arrived right on time - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 228! - JOIN/LEVEL-UP THE ANDY'S GIRLS PATREON, AND ENJOY EXCLUSIVE BONUS EPISODES, INVITES TO SPECIAL EVENTS, AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO GUEST CO-HOST ON A FUTURE EP: https://www.patreon.com/AndysGirls FOLLOW SARAH ON IG and help her hit 7k!: https://www.instagram.com/damegalli/
Sarah watches "The Housewife and the Hustler," a Hulu doc named in honor of Danielle and Dana/Pam's appearances as the official experts in crime. Sarah recuses herself from shit-talking the crypt keeper of Franklin Lakes (...in a minute), by talking with another star of the doc, Chris Murphy (staff writer at Vanity Fair, tastemaker of all things Bravo). They unpack the devastating consequences of Tom's alleged crimes, why the past is important in understanding Sutton v. Crystal, and why LuAnn, Mensa member and astrophysicist, may owe Ramona a fruit basket after the white fragility starring role is (reportedly) reversed in the next ep. Eboni K. Williams is a queen, and this convo is royal-tea - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 227! - JOIN/LEVEL-UP THE ANDY'S GIRLS PATREON, AND ENJOY EXCLUSIVE BONUS EPISODES, INVITES TO SPECIAL EVENTS, AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO GUEST CO-HOST ON A FUTURE EP: https://www.patreon.com/AndysGirls FOLLOW SARAH ON IG and help her hit 7k!: https://www.instagram.com/damegalli/
Sarah welcomes the Sabbath by DMing Leah's rabbi to ask if Hebrew can come up with another word for "challah" that doesn't sound like a certain "holla" hello. After being told she needs a hobby - honestly, true - Sarah makes like Jill Zarin and keeps talking instead, as she kikis with an amaze Bravoholic and TikTok superstar, Julian Hagins. They unpack Bravo's complicated path diversifying Dallas, NY and Beverly Hills, what happens when Allies Go Wild, and why Garcelle's costars calling her 'inauthentic' may actually be the greatest compliment. Elegance is learned, my friends, and this ep is top of the class - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 226! - JOIN/LEVEL-UP THE ANDY'S GIRLS PATREON, AND ENJOY EXCLUSIVE BONUS EPISODES, INVITES TO SPECIAL EVENTS, AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO GUEST CO-HOST ON A FUTURE EP: https://www.patreon.com/AndysGirls FOLLOW SARAH ON IG and help her hit 7k!: https://www.instagram.com/damegalli/
Sarah stops by Vanderpump Pets, in search of an answer to life's greatest question ("Overserved." Why.). After discovering that Lisa Vanderpump has fled E! and is holing up at Villa Rosa with Rosita and the ghost of Giggy and living Ken, Sarah Zooms up the next best thing: an epic Bravoholic kiki with Ryan Bailey (host, "So Bad It's Good with Ryan Bailey"). They discuss Ryan's holy trinity (three recent visits to TomTom), debate Dorit's direction during Bottoms Up, and unpack the differences between class, education, and intelligence - and why Luann doesn't care. Kathy Hilton says she stans this ep, and Mike and Evan too - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 225! - JOIN/LEVEL-UP THE ANDY'S GIRLS PATREON, AND ENJOY EXCLUSIVE BONUS EPISODES, INVITES TO SPECIAL EVENTS, AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO GUEST CO-HOST ON A FUTURE EP: https://www.patreon.com/AndysGirls FOLLOW SARAH ON IG: https://www.instagram.com/damegalli/
Sarah begins the holy preparation for BravoCon - a convening of great minds outside The Regency, texting each other "question mark" - by Zooming up a new guest to the People's People's Couch, and a steadfast Bravo aficionado, Erica Cobb (co-host, "Daily Blast Live," host, "Comeback with Erica Cobb" podcast and social media show). They discuss the impact of Eboni and Leah's united front (and differing personalities), what happens when a Jersey Housewife runs analog while her castmates are digital, and the complicated critiques facing Garcelle from fans. Sarah won't let the mouse go, by which she means ever letting this epic episode end - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 224! - JOIN/LEVEL-UP THE ANDY'S GIRLS PATREON, AND ENJOY EXCLUSIVE BONUS EPISODES, INVITES TO SPECIAL EVENTS, AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO GUEST CO-HOST ON A FUTURE EP: https://www.patreon.com/AndysGirls FOLLOW SARAH ON IG: https://www.instagram.com/damegalli/
Sarah sits shivah for another weekend without access to Countess and Friends Live, until she realizes she has just the ticket to bridge all things Bravo and Broadway - an epic kiki with the Tony-winning star of stage and screen, Annaleigh Ashford! They discuss Annaleigh's upcoming Ryan Murphy-helmed vehicle with fellow Bravoholic Sarah Paulson, the importance of humor as a survival tactic for childhood trauma(BCC: Nene, Margaret, and Bethenny), and what the cast of Dallas could learn from Beverly Hills when it comes to social media accountability. Sarah and Anna went to college together, and this convo is a masterclass - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 273! - JOIN/LEVEL-UP THE ANDY'S GIRLS PATREON, AND ENJOY EXCLUSIVE BONUS EPISODES, INVITES TO SPECIAL EVENTS, AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO GUEST CO-HOST ON A FUTURE EP: https://www.patreon.com/AndysGirls FOLLOW SARAH ON IG: https://www.instagram.com/damegalli/
Sarah walks to the NY Public Library, after hearing it may have the best lighting for selfies. Consternated to discover the windows are blocked by books, she self soothes by checking out the new Bravo Bible, the just-released book "The Housewives: The Real Story Behind The Real Housewives," written by the esteemed President and Founder of the Real Housewives Institute, and a fellow Dame, Brian Moylan. Sarah Zooms up Dame Moylan for a deep dive into how Vicki ultimately (surprisingly) defines herself, why Bethenny may have been running a masterclass in press maneuvering for plot on Season 3, and an a-ha moment around how to think of Housewives' reflection on society. Unlike Luann, this convo will never be on the lower level - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 222! - JOIN/LEVEL-UP THE ANDY'S GIRLS PATREON, AND ENJOY EXCLUSIVE BONUS EPISODES, INVITES TO SPECIAL EVENTS, AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO GUEST CO-HOST ON A FUTURE EP: https://www.patreon.com/AndysGirls FOLLOW SARAH ON IG: https://www.instagram.com/damegalli/ SEND SARAH YOUR RECCS FOR RHONY LANDMARKS IN NYC: IG @damegalli and andysgirlsshow@gmail.com
With BravoCon 2021 on the horizon, Sarah realizes that the People's People's Couch is missing an...iconic touch. So she Zooms up one of the Bravo community's spiritual advisors, Danny Pellegrino ("Everything Iconic with Danny Pellegrino"). They discuss the group dynamic when Sonja rewrites her past/refuses to stay present, the chicken and egg scenario of Joe and Melissa's marital tension on reality TV, and why Kathy Hilton makes everyone (aside from a few childhood friends) smile.

Sarah starts a secret Facebook group called ManzoAnon, dedicated to her reminding herself not to send Chris Manzo thirst DMs on the daily. After realizing there is no better support group than doubling down, she calls up IG's creators of pop culture, and one of Sarah's fave community organizers, DeuxMoi (voice distorted to protect anonymity!). They discuss why Friends-of friendships may fare better in Jersey than NYC, which NYC landmarks should be considered a part of RHONY Epcot, and some rumblings about the Manzo's biz dealings (not you, Chris!).

Sarah mixes her nightly melatonin with an extra episode of "The Big Shot with Bethenny," and experiences a fever dream that Dr. Tiffany Moon has been cyber bullied off Dallas by a man named "Chart." Sarah awakes with a jolt, and attends to emergency self care the best way she knows how - an AG kiki with the delightful Tracie Morrissey (writer, producer, host of the podcast Pot Psychology, and owner of PipeDreams.fun). They discuss what Tiffany's uncertain RHOD future means for the franchise, the potential influence of Joe Gorga's childhood trauma on his 'traditional values' focus, and why Leah and Heather's reported fight may have more to do with the business of reality tv than streetwear.

just a little note - Netherlands has nothing to do with Sweden, Norway and Denmark :) Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland is called Scandinavia. But they are all different countries with different laws :)
