From that fateful night at the Bowery Ballroom when our hosts saw Maren years ago, to this moment. Oooh!!!!

Sound the Icon Alert!!! We don't have one? We gotta get one. IT IS TRULY a glorious day because Garcelle Beauvais is joining Matt & Bowen on Las Culturistas! Look at God! And they're asking the hard questions: did her Spiderman: Homecoming character Doris Toomes survive the snap and the blip? Does she even know what any of that means? The answer might not shock you. What do we need to know regarding the BTS of working with Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy, Michael Jordan and, yes, Will Smith? And what can we espect to go down on the new season of RHOBH? What goes down in ASPEN?!?!? All this, coming to America (lol) from Haiti and discovering R&B music, the visceral movie star sexuality of Brad Pitt in Thelma & Louise, maintaining your "front row" relationships, finally *some* Oscars decompressing, and the very REAL camaraderie between the ladies of The Real. Garcelle's memoir Love Me As I Am is out on April 12th, and you'll be better for reading it. We have been touched by greatness! See for privacy information.
The best thing you can do is not ignore, but rather, LISTEN TO this episode of Las Culturistas because, bitch, BETTY WHO is the guest. One of Matt & Bowen's favorite artists joins them in person in LA to discuss naming wigs and hair as expression, hanging in there in the music industry through ups and downs, touring, the importance of rehearsal, and the question of WWBD (Beyonce...and Britney!) Also! Britney as formative culture, always getting the moms in the crowd on her side with Betty's cover of "I Love You Always Forever", playing every Pride in America, and queering up the lives of the straight men you know. All this, cannibalism fever, how TikTok is running the music industry, performing on The Bachelorette and how sometimes a Glee Cast Version can go all the way off. It's fucking Betty Who everybody! We woke up and chose violet for this one... STREAM THIS WOMAN. See for privacy information.

Bowen Yang (platinum blonde, super-immune, Erika, corn silk-era) and Matt Rogers (still brunette, super-immune, Rinna, still charizard-era) gather together after a fabulous trip to Mexico City to record a "culture catchup" episode of their podcast Las Culturistas (critically acclaimed). And wow, has culture occurred. The name Che Diaz ring a bell? "Hey, it's Che Diaz!" How about now? Also, Mary M. Cosby, exiting the world stage? Major news, indeed.

So I listen a lot and I hear the declarations you make based on your best guesses and shrug. It’s okay. Now you’ve made me have to go Boomer on you. It’s widely known that “Imagine” was not written in California but at Tittenhurst Park in England. Many films show it all happening. As for the dismissal of “Imagine there’s no heaven” as the murmurings of an LSD trip, NO. In 1971 it’s almost a miracle that got airplay. It was sacrilege. Some respect is in order.

I keep coming back to this podcast. It is hard to follow, though. Talks to fast, not clear, over talk, sounds alike. Steps on names. Who is that laughing like a dolphin?
