From pro ball to rock bottom, Steel Russell’s journey is one of resilience and transformation. After losing his career and battling addiction, Steel found his way to sobriety, becoming an exceptional father, a phenomenal private chef and the co-host of the BravBros Podcast. Tune in to hear this inspiring story of turning pain into purpose. Whats up Bros? This is a special crossover episode of a podcast, Pain With a Purpose, that Steel went on a couple of weeks ago. While we like to keep things light here most of the time, this was an important episode to share because of Steel's journey in recovery. If you ever wanted to know more about Steel's background, where he came from, how he got here today and what his journey with alcohol was like, this is the episode for you. If you do give it a listen, go and give Painwpurpose a follow on Instagram and a listen to some of their other episodes. Chris Woods, the host, is doing an amazing thing by sharing not just the sad and dark parts of addiction and alcoholism, but what those of us are able to do with the newfound respect for life and sobriety. Truer words never spoken, Pain With a Purpose. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

What's up Bros? It is our conclusion of the Summer House Reunion part one. In this second half of the recap, we start out with Lindsay and Paige. They seemed to have connected over the summer but due to a falling out at BravoCon, (allegedly Carl overheard a conversation between Lindsay and a friend) and in this phone call there was supposedly a plan to sabotage a photoshoot that Paige had. Now the details of this are a bit murky and it would've been nice if Carl explained what he'd overheard, but the overall sentiment is that because of this, Paige is back to being guarded with Lindsay. Danielle jumps in and Paige reminds her that she was in fact the one behind the blind item about Craig getting kicked out of Kyle's wedding. Then its time for the main event, what's been the center point of the bravo verse for the past week. West and Ciara. Despite interviewing him a couple of months ago... Let's just say we have some thoughts about the whole thing that we think youse are going to want to hear... Introducing BravBros Members!

What's up Bros? It is part one of the Summer House reunion and part 1 of our recap! In this episode we dive deeper into the break up with Lindsay and Carl. What is also important to note is it seems like a lot of the people in the house have somewhat changed their tune with Lindsay since the last episode... The day of the break up is rehashed and we find out that Carl called the cameras and they had a fight 45 minutes before they started filming that scene. We also discuss Kyle and Carl's relationship and how they were able to come back together over the summer as well as their current status at Loverboy. Andy asks about Kyle's involvement in Lindsay and Carl's relationship and from what we saw, he did a fairly good job of staying out of it for the most part. On a brighter note, the house was pretty solid all summer. The ladies were getting along with one another and we saw the dudes get along as well. They certainly made Summer fun again. Come on back for part 2 of our recap where we dive into the West and Ciara of it all, as well as the tension between Lindsay, Paige and Danielle. Introducing BravBros Members!

Whats up Bros? It's the conclusion of the Valley Finale and this episode is focused around the "6 months after" time frame. Jesse and Michelle are getting a divorce, we see a very tough scene as they discuss how to navigate their finances, business, coparenting and housing situations. It seems as Michelle is fully checked out and Jesse is still not handling it very well despite them being in the process of a divorce. Both agree the most important thing is to be good parents to Isabella, and recent social media posts show them coexisting and coparenting successfully, so hopefully that continues for Isabella's sake. We check in with Brittany who is still reeling from everything but it seems that she has finally snapped out of whatever spell Jax had her under. She has moved out (way to go Jax, kick your wife and kid outta the house) she is currently living in an AirBnB and she is very aware of all the craziness that Jax has put her through. Jason checks on Jax and its the same sob story we've heard from him since his early days on VPR. He needs to get help, he's got something wrong with him etcetera etcetera... Its been his same defense forever, the only problem is he never actually gets help because he doesn't actually care. On the Bravo Extended Version on Peacock we find out that Doute and Luke went through a miscarriage back in October, which shame on Bravo for editing that out on the original if Doute was willing to share. But thoughts and prayers to them as they navigate that difficult road. The final scene is Jax and Brittany and she is a different woman now. She calls Jax out on all the B.S. that he's trying to set up as an out and Jax has LITERALLY DONE ZERO TO TRY TO CHANGE OR GET BETTER. He's checked out. He sucks. Team Brittany. Move on with your life and find a new man. Brittany makes the money, she's got the career, leave that POS in the dust. Introducing BravBros Members!

What's up Bros? This has been a stellar season of tv. Not many people predicted that this show would be as good as it was, but credit where credits due... It was fantastic. In this episode we discuss the first half of the finale centered around the bar opening. Jasmine and Zack recap the Big Bear trip and Zack is still upset with Janet and how she handled it. Jax and Brittany (mainly just Brittany) are putting the finishing touches on the bar to get it ready. Jesse and Michelle have a tough conversation that starts with Jesse wanting to talk to Jax, and ends with Michelle saying she doesn't feel the same way about Jesse anymore.. like, at all... Doute and Luke are finally back on our screens and Bravo producers need to do a much better job next season at making sure she is part of the crew. Things blow up at the bar as Zack confronts Janet, Janet continues to start fires and throw people under the bus (i.e. Jasmine) Jason turns into a 'tough guy' and Brittany "Just wants to have one night drama free". Its a nice theory on paper but this is Jax's bar there is no way the night is going to be drama free. Doute tries to smooth things over with Michelle and outs Janet for being the main cause for all the drama this season. In this first half, friendships are on the rocks, marriages are ending, and despite Jax giving a speech and saying he and Brittany have a bright future, the 6 months later tag and the proceeding fallout says otherwise...

What's up Bros? The hits keep coming for Jersey as we just found out the reunion for this season has been canceled followed by a potential major cast shake up. We take the first 20 minutes of this episode to discuss the overall state of Housewives and Bravo. A lot of these issues are across the board in the Housewives universe and hopefully Bravo has a plan moving forward to revamp where needed. Then its on to Jersey. Melissa and Jen Aydin finally sit down (again) to try to hash things out. Fessler confronts Marge and says she's not being herself. Marge is still coping with the passing of Jan, her ex husband, but is there more to her mood shift than that? Danielle is getting prepped for her Bougie Kids show at NY Fashion Week and invites all the gals over for a Bougie Brunch. Danielle ends up confronting both Jen Aydin and Teresa about them potentially setting her up last year with the rumors about Melissa's make out with another man. Fuda gets involved when she pops off at Teresa and while some of her reads are quite good, she has so stop asking Teresa what she's done and calling her a has-been... the other digs are funny, the has been stuff doesn't make a whole lot of sense...

Whats up Bros? The conclusion of Summer House starts now... In this episode we pick up where the cameras picked up in NYC. Carl sits down with Kyle following a tumultuous fight between he and Lindsay. Kyle finally flat out asks, are you ready to get married? Highlighting that marriage won't fix your problems. Carl seems like his mind has been made up and is unsure of what to do next. Was Kyle the best person to have this sit down? Did we need someone less biased present? Either way, we get THE conversation the following morning. Carl sits down with Lindsay allegedly to hash things out and move forward. From where we were sitting it seemed like Carl when into that convo with his mind made up to end things. Listing a whole lot of reasons that are probably true (name calling, mean texts, yelling etc) but Lindsay probably has plenty of valid reasons as well. The bottom line is these two were not meant to be together. Was it a blindsiding? Lindsay calls her dad to tell him and his response? "Oh boy"...? Oh boy... The ladies of Summer House get together following the news and the majority is down the middle, they didn't belong together this is for the best... Gabby however has taken a firm stance on team Lindsay. Lindsay comes in and doesn't know where the break up came from... Now the questions remain. Was she blindsided? Did Carl set her up with the cameras? What team do you support? Or are you like us.. At the end of the day this is two people that never should have gotten engaged and thank goodness they didn't go through with the marriage... Introducing BravBros Members!

What's up Bros? This season of Summer House was so good, so captivating and so polarizing that we had to break down the finale in a 2 parter. In Part 1, we see the end of the Doomsday party and Lindsay and Carl are still not able to see eye to eye. West and Ciara continue to stay in the same place as West seems to downplay every intimate moment between the two of them. Things get heated the following morning as Lindsay and Carl have the same conversation we've seen throughout the summer. Carl needs her to be more soft and tender, Lindsay needs him to step up and take care of business and get a job and stop asking to be coddled. From side conversations with other people, you can tell that both of them have reached a breaking point. The difference is, Lindsay is clearly still in it for the long haul. Carl seemingly is finished with this relationship but doesn't know how to pull the trigger. The writing is on the wall but did Lindsay get blindsided? They go to Montauk with the rest of the crew and Lindsay can't even ride with Carl there. And whatever happens on the ride home seems to be the last straw in their engagement... Cameras go down for the season, but not long after they are picked back up for the scenes that we've heard about before this season even started which will take us into Part 2 of our breakdown...

What's up Bros? We are getting close to the season finale of The Valley and what a season it's been. Danny overindulges in this episode and we see him and Nia get into an uncharacteristic spat at the dinner table. Nia handles it well but it looks like the stresses in Danny's life boiled over. Granted Jesse seems to be taking little digs at him to rile him up... Project much? Jax is still the worst as he continues to drag Brittany but not understand that she may be done with him at some point. Brittany while speaking to Janet lets the viewers know that she is willing to divorce Jax if things don't change. Doute continues to be on the outs with everyone as her and Zack are still exiled from the group. Michelle is completely done with her marriage at this points and while Jesse claims that they're working on things, you can tell that he is sort of aware of that too... Things are getting messy as the season finale draws near and this season has been pretty damn great... All that and more in today's episode!

What's up Bros? It is part 3 of the VPR Reunion in what could be the last episode that we'll ever see of Vanderpump... The big reveal in this episode is the replay of the last 5 minutes of the finale to allow for the entire cast. Ariana's reaction is hard to watch as she sees Lala's insults. Sandoval and Ariana finally have a conversation that's overshadowed by Sandoval's crocodile tears. Lala can't seem to get past the fact that her and Ariana's cheating situations are not the same. She attempts to draw parallels and support throughout all 3 parts of the reunion but at the end of the day they are simply different situations. Lala's biggest frustration this episode is that she claims the majority of the cast (mainly Katie and Scheana) have talked smack about Ariana behind closed doors and now when it's on camera they have changed their tune. Scheana is quite clearly trying to backpedal to cover her own ass but she wants to be in the good graces of both Ariana and Lala by the end of the reunion. Ariana deserves a trophy for being so collected and poised throughout this episode. Watching her raw emotions as she goes through all of this is difficult but kadooze to her for being able to still answer questions succinctly, the ability see other sides to arguments while still standing her ground. Could this be the end of VPR? Is anyone team Lala? All that and more on todays SUPERSIZED VPR episode! Introducing BravBros Members!

What's up Bros? On today's episode were back with RHONJ. Its game time as we get ready for Dolores' yearly softball game. Marge and Fuda have taken even more issue with Fessler talking to Teresa and 'playing both sides'. We get crocodile tears from Fuda because Fessler sat down with Teresa? While what we're seeing is a Fessler that is acting like an adult and not playing foot soldier in Marge or Fuda's weak game... Joe and Melissa drop Antonia off at college. Jen Aydin tries to bring Danielle into the drama via Lina (hairdresser) who apparently got cold shouldered and kicked out of the VIP at a party hosted by Tre, Jen and Dolores on behalf of Danielle. Melissa asks Jen Aydin to have a sit down to finally talk some things out. Marge and Jackie get into it before the game and Jackie confidently states that she's done taking Marge's crap. Overall, we're seeing a lot of people get in trouble for talking to other people. It's hard to have a successful show when the entire cast has limitations on who they are 'allowed to interact with'.... Introducing BravBros Members!

What Would Jesse Soloman Do, Bros?!? We are coming close to the end of summer and things are heating up. Ciara and West are still undecided as to what their future is after the awkward conversation at the horse riding date. Jesse Soloman celebrates 5 years cancer free (hell yeah Jesse). Carl and Kyle have a sit down about what his role at Loverboy would be. When he discusses it with Lindsay, her questions about the topic leads to frustrations... These two cannot communicate with one another... West throws a Doomsday party for the end of the summer bash. Meanwhile, Danielle launches the Donne app after years of development. Cameras pick back up in a week to see the conclusion of Lindsay and Carl... Was she blindsided? Do you have a side? Or is this a couple that simply never should have been together...?

What's up Bros? We're back with The Valley and what has been a great season of TV. In this episode we're still in Big Bear. Jax tells Michelle about the rumors he heard and she goes straight to Jesse to have a discussion... Throughout the episode we get Jax berating Brittany about drinking and feeling sick, despite not being drunk... It was honestly a little rough to watch the duration of the episode as we watched him yell at her over and over again and not one castmate got involved. The boys break down outside and have a good cry but Jesse also begins to go in on Danny and Nia's marriage which doesn't make ANY sense given the circumstances. Zack gets petty with some of the better shade we've seen from anyone. The boys have another heart to heart on the boat during a fishing trip about marriages and it's a tough scene to watch considering the state of two of the four marriages on the boat, but Jesse feel the need once again to start talking smack against Nia and Danny's marriage... Jax puts his foot in his mouth, shocker. But this show does not disappoint... Introducing BravBros Members! Offering exclusive access, bonus episodes, monthly Q&A zoom and more!

What's up Bros? Part 2 of the VPR reunion did not disappoint. The extended Jo segment wasn't totally necessary but all in all, it was entertaining for the most part. Lala continues to go after Ariana and Katie (unsuccessfully). We dive deeper into the relationship between Jo and Schwartz. We also get to watch in real time as Schwartz gaslights the hell out of her. They have very contradicting recounts of what their relationship/situationship/friendship was/is... James and Ally are still doing well and Hippie has settled into the home nicely. Katie hooked up with Max a second time it seems... But the overall focus of this episode, once again, is Lala's vendetta. She argues that Ariana's boundaries with Sandoval made no sense while defending hers with Randal. While they may be different scenarios due to the details, what remains true is friends respect other friends boundaries even if they don't fully understand them (as Ariana herself pointed out) The only one supporting Lala seemingly is the other thirstiest one on the show, Scheana. It appears that those two are so afraid to lose their paycheck they're going above and beyond to stay relevant... Fireworks pop off at the end when James and Sandoval get into it...

What's Up Bros??? We're down the Jersey Shore with the RHONJ crew and things are heating up. Joe Gorga has a birthday party and he attempts to extend an 'olive branch' by inviting Jen Aydin and Bill via Bill. Fuda is beginning to get fed up with Fessler being neutral and is starting to accuse her of playing both sides. Marge is doing her best to drum up as much drama with Fessler as well and it all goes back to the convo the Fessler had with Teresa on the couch last week. Danielle is still staying in the middle but even in a confessional we can hear her leaning towards the Fuda's side of things. Gabriella gets ready to go off to college and Teresa and co. are in their feels. The episode caps off with a lot of drama between Marge, Fessler, Fuda and Jackie because Fuda and Marge think Fessler is being shady. Have producers simply replaced Melissa and Joe with the Fuda's to go after Teresa? Introducing BravBros Members! Offering exclusive access, bonus episodes, monthly Q&A zoom and more!

What's up Bros?? We're back with Summer House and this show is just firing on all cylinders. What a season thus far. In this episode, Lindsay attempts to smooth things over with Carl after he jumped down her throat for simply asking questions about Loverboy. This conversation doesn't go well either and she ends up stranded in the Hamptons with her luggage. West and Ciara finally have a difficult conversation and are quite clearly not on the same page (thanks to West...). Kyle and Amanda are still at odds after Kyle crushed her hopes and dreams in one fell swoop. Although he offers an apology, is it actually genuine? Paige and Ciara step up for Amanda and let Kyle know EXACTLY how they feel as they stand by and watch Kyle compromise on absolutely nothing. Its the Kyle show all the time and Paige gives him the read of the century. This has been a stellar season of TV and we still have more to go! Introducing BravBros Members!

What's up Bros? This week on The Valley we're seeing some different sides to the group... Zack is upset about being excluded from the Big Bear trip and meanwhile while the group is venting about it, Simon (Janet's spy) is live texting her a minute to minute update... Janet call's Zack to 'clear the air' but ends up gaslighting Zack instead and acting as though being on the trip is a privilege and he should act as such. Janet is beginning to implant herself as the groups #1 gossiper and pot stirrer... Doute and Luke meet with a couples counselor. Jesse returns from his ayahuasca therapy and seems changed. For about 2 minutes. His true colors show when he gets to Big Bear and play fights Danny and Michelle and then gets pissed off that Danny is upset about it... The bombshell of the episode comes at the end when Jax confronts Michelle about the alleged cheating rumors and she ends up simply confirming them. This show rocks. Introducing BravBros Members!

What's up Bros?! It's reunion season once more and we are with the VPR Crew. In part 1 we discuss last years reunion and the Rachel of it all. Most of the cast agrees they don't regret anything from last years reunion, especially given how Rachel has gone on a podcast/ press tour, filed a lawsuit against Ariana, talked about the show and bashed everyone on it. We go over Brock's relationship with his kids in Australia, the cast agrees he's a great father to Summer Moon but some questions still remain about his relationship with his first children. James and Ally come up and the scrutiny they received after starting their relationship post engagement, but meanwhile Ariana and Dan were championed. I think we all know why those two situations are different but James feels a certain way about it nonetheless. The main focus of this episode is Lala is trying to drive a wedge between Katie and Ariana. Bringing up potentially damning conversations had behind the scenes between her and Ariana. We've heard inklings of a huge fallout amongst the cast members so we see the seeds being planted in this first part. All in all not a bad reunion and definitely looking forward to the 2nd OR 3rd part... One of them will probably be a dud as 3 part reunions tend to have one blah episode, but the other one is going to definitely deliver. Introducing BravBros Members!

What's up Bros? It Jersey time once again and in todays episode, Danielle is getting Valentina new headshots as she preps her to become a star. Meanwhile, both families are getting ready to send their daughters off to college. What's highlighted relentlessly in this episode, each family (the Gorgas and the Rules) talks at length about how amazing their individual families are. It has now become a competition of who's inherited family is better than the others. Fessler continues to play Switzerland but is open to having conversations and relationships with Teresa. Her allegiance seems to be to Marge Jr. but her having a relationship with Teresa is causing some issues for Fuda. At pickle ball, Fuda draws a firm Line in the sand against Teresa and her camp. Rachel has apparently swapped roles with Melissa this year as it has quickly become Fuda's vs. Teresa. It ends at a celebration of life event for Nate who had previously had a cyst removed from his brain and although things go well, this is where we see tension between Rachel and Fessler when Fessler goes off to clear the air with Teresa. Whose side are you on? are you enjoying this season or is it a re-run of all the same BS we've watched for years at this point?

Absolutely disagree with you about Katie n Scheena. Sheena has been horrible to her, which Sheena admits in her own podcast. Katie does not look worse the only one that does in this situation is Tom Schwartz, and feel like you guys are backing his behavior. really think this is a man , woman difference.
