This week on Trashy Royals, we hop on our broomsticks and fly back to the heady days when men were men and a mildly inconvenient storm at sea could prompt a monarch to burn a bunch of his subjects at the stake! That's right: It's King James VI (of Scotland) and James I (of England and Ireland) time! This guy was obsessed with witchcraft and witches, sending a sickening number of innocents to be burned at the stake or hanged from the gallows, usually for the simple crime of being a woman.

There are fascinating through lines that draw House Windsor together in unexpected, and even (to our boring middle class values) unseemly, ways. In today's foray into Trashy Royals, Alicia introduces us to Prince of Wales "Dirty" Bertie, the future Edward VII, and one of his longtime mistresses, Alice "Freddie" Keppel. And then we meet again a young Prince Charles, the longest serving Prince of Wales, and learn how the pattern established by his great-great-grandfather led to a wild love triangle, an awful lot of heartache, and eventually, an unexpected marriage.

Welcome to our new season 10 mid-week drops, Trashy Royals! Today, Alicia has the tale of a possibly cursed pearl, La Peregrina, which was the largest pearl ever found when it was pulled from Panamanian waters. It would spend centuries bothering Europe's first families before an English Duke gave it to Sotheby's for auction in 1969, and the legend of La Peregrina gained a brand new chapter with a different kind of royalty.

Welcome to our Season 9 finale! Alicia has the very trashy tale of what happened after Stella got her groove back! Author Terry McMillan broke all the rules by marrying a much younger man, and when he later came out as gay, her anger was almost all-consuming. Stacie has a couple who really underperformed in the trash department, but the sweet aftermath of the divorce of actress Anna Faris and Guardian of the Galaxy Chris Pratt seemed like a nice note to end the season on.

These two cut a path of destruction through the lives of the people who loved them, often with tragic results. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Happy Valentine’s Day! We both realized we’d already released some stories that hit the Valentine’s Day sweet spot for us over on Patreon! Stacie has the creepy, kooky, mysterious and spooky story of cartoonist Charles Addams, whose decades of darkly screwball New Yorker cartoons became The Addams Family. Then, Alicia has perhaps the perfect distillation of Truman Capote’s Swans, the actress and author Carol Saroyan Matthau, who may be the most direct inspiration for Capote’s Holly Golightly character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

This week, Alicia gets her dander up with the marriage and divorce of burlesque star Dita Von Teese and Marilyn Manson, including a discussion of the disturbing allegations that have been made against him in recent days.

Well Trashpandas, Mercury is returning to retrograde, and as proof, Stacie's computer has flung itself head first toward oblivion. But good news: Instead of her regularly scheduled profile this week, we're finally able to share some of the awesome listener letters you've sent in.

It's been a tough few... years, so this week we thought it might be nice to dive into the private lives of one of TV's oddest and most delightful (non-romantic) couples: Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart. Snoop is a hip hop legend and icon, as well as an enthusiastic booster of cannabis, while Martha Stewart literally wrote the book on suburban domestic beauty and tranquility. Alicia has the not-divorce of Snoop Dogg, while Stacie has some pretty hefty rumors about what things were like in the long marriage of Martha and Andy Stewart. Promo The Oak Tree Group.

omg, the one host is always CRYING and it's so cheesy. She probably gets all choked up over Hallmark card commercials. Someone get her some mood stabilizers.

Before anyone flips out on me, let me just say that I've been a very loyal Stevie fan since 1980. Pretty much worshipped her. In my History of Rock Music, I chose her for inspiration. However; when I listened to Ken Caillat's audiobook, "Making Rumors" I was heartbroken to learn that she told him she was putting a spell on his beloved dog and it subsequently died because she was pissed at Ken at the time.My hope is that she just said it in a drug-fueled moment. My dog got me through the roughest time in my life, and I can truthfully say, if not for her love and loyalty, I would not be alive today. So, it's fair to say that I'm an animal lover, especially dogs. Her shine has darkened a bit for me since then. Love you both, love the show! Love and light 💛...Lisa

I know a few people have bitched and moaned about this podcast being "man hating" and unfairly blaming the men as the cause of the divorces. Well, that's not the case for Cary Grant. Who can say anything bad about him? Certainly not me!

A trashy, lurid ( and possibly murderous) affair in history.

I know it takes you both for this podcast to be as great as it is, but PLEASE, Alicia, let Stacie tell her stories without you trying to stay one step ahead of what she's getting ready to say.

I absolutely adore this podcast. It's a wonderful way for me to satiate my need for celebrity junk food without all the BS that usually goes along with it. In regards to all the haters in the comments, if you don't like the delivery or content, listen to something else and/or do your own podcast. If Stacie or Alicia seem to be disliking someone in a story, it's usually because they're an asshole, not a man. There are plenty of stories where they sympathize with men. (Bruce Willis anyone?)
