Welcome back! Have you ever wondered how the men of the Rat Pack developed their sense of style? In our eighth episode of Ocean’s Eleven: 12 Degrees of Frank Sinatra, Alicia shares the strange but true life story of international man of mystery, James Bond inspiration, and husband to two American heiresses (among a few other women) Porfirio Rubirosa, the most famous person you’ve probably never heard of. Then, Stacie has an Atlanta hometown with the sordid tale of Atlanta Brave David Justice and his short-lived marriage to Academy Award winner Halle Berry back in the go-go 1990s.

Sinatra was a big booster for Ronald Reagan as California governor, part of Sinatra’s own shift from Democratic to Republican politics. This week in our Ocean’s Eleven: 12 Degrees of Frank Sinatra season, Stacie has the 1940-1949 marriage and divorce of Academy Award winning actress Jane Wyman and future president Ronald Reagan. Then, Alicia has the incredible life and loves of icon and trailblazer Diahann Carroll, a friend and frequent performing partner of the Rat Pack.

This week in our Ocean’s Eleven season, we take a look at the two Tess Oceans. In 1960, the Rat Pack – plus Angie Dickinson – starred in a heist flick called Ocean’s 11. In 2001, a more modern set of actors, including Julia Roberts, built a new Ocean’s franchise. Both women portrayed mastermind Danny Ocean’s estranged or former wife. Alicia has all the Rat Pack details of screen legend Angie Dickinson’s marriage to and divorce from musician and songwriter Burt Bacharach. Stacie has Julia Roberts’s early forays into love, including her short marriage to musician and actor Lyle Lovett. Can’t get enough #trashcandy?

You can’t talk Sinatra without eventually talking about some Kennedy trash, so in week four of Ocean's Eleven: 12 Degrees of Frank Sinatra, Alicia brings us the first ever Kennedy divorce. Patricia Kennedy Lawford, sister to JFK, RFK, and Ted, married Hollywood heartthrob Peter Lawford and probably expected he'd settle down. He did not, and after years of putting up with his addictions and affairs, she divorced him in 1966. Then, Stacie has Kennedy Divorces: The Next Generation, with the extremely trashy behavior of bodybuilder, actor, and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, before and during his 25-year-long marriage to Maria Shriver, niece of JFK, RFK, Ted, and Patricia. Did you stock up on soap? You may want to run to the store, because you're going to feel dirty after this one. Can't get enough #trashcandy?

If only we had listened. The Evening Standard's Wendy Leigh was as horrified by it all as we should have been back in 2003. Mike Redmond writing at NickiSwift.com has so many details about Arnold's trashy life, but especially David Pecker's apparent extortion of him on behalf of AMI/The National Enquirer. Some things never change, I guess.
Alicia’s been tangling the web, but you may not be ready for the trashy affair, marriage, affairs, and divorce of Frank Sinatra and his second wife, movie legend Ava Gardner. It’s our third installment of Ocean’s 11: Twelve Degrees of Frank Sinatra, and this one’s got all the #trashcandy. Then, it’s Dolly Parton’s birthday today, and to honor the queen of our hearts, we get into the start of her career, when country superstar Porter Wagoner plucked her from obscurity to be his “Girl Singer.” Seven years later, her split from him drove him off the stage and into a courtroom, but Dolly would always love him anyway.

For our second dive into the Ocean's Eleven: 12 Degrees of Frank Sinatra season, Stacie has the Rat Pack-adjacent comedian and original King of Late Night, Johnny Carson. He was a private person who was possibly America's most beloved and public figure for three decades. His three divorces – and final, apparently happy marriage, reveal the split-screen that was his life. Then, Alicia has the tragic early years of Ava Gardner: her rural North Carolina upbringing, her discovery by the MGM star machine, and her first marriages, to Mickey Rooney and Artie Shaw. It's all prelude to her final, tumultuous marriage to Sinatra, which is coming up later this season. Can't get enough #trashcandy?

It’s the #trashpack, y'all! For our fifth season launch, Alicia is deep-diving into Frank Sinatra’s trashy life and loves. This week we kick off with Ol’ Blue Eyes’s first marriage and divorce to Nancy Barbato; Nancy Senior, if you will. Are you ready for "Ocean’s 11: 12 Degrees of Frank Sinatra?" Then, Stacie has the surprisingly trashy tale of Charles Dickens's public abandonment of his wife of 22 years and the secret, 13-year-long affair that he conducted with a young actress throughout the rest of his life. Turns out that so-called "Great Men" only hold up if their followers are willing to keep their secrets.

Hello, and welcome to our season four closer and our last (regular) episode of 2019! This week, Alicia has the true crime story of Christmas crooner Andy Williams and his marriage to, divorce from, and defense of his ex-wife, alleged murderer Claudine Longet. Then, Stacie has the dirty details of Tommy Mattola's pursuit of and marriage to superstar Mariah Carey, with proof that a castle alone isn’t enough to hang onto a queen.

Alicia got some sad news this week, so we’re hopping into our time machine and heading back to merry olde England, circa 1560, to take a look at the original Staircase Murder. During the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, Bess held the affection of many men, but pony boy Robert Dudley found his feelings reciprocated. Until his wife Amy Robsart was found dead at the foot of a staircase, that is. An innocent accident, or something much darker? Alicia has all the deets.

She is one of the most beautiful people in the world and has graced the covers of more than 500 magazines, but Christie Brinkley hasn’t been especially lucky in love.

Want the deep, dishy dirt on four of Tinseltown’s finest? We got you! First up, Stacie has the almost comically awful divorce and years-long, bi-coastal custody fight between Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin. Then, Alicia has the heartwarming and disturbing story of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, who married and divorced twice, plus a truly horrifying anecdote from Melanie’s Hollywood childhood.

Ready for some true crime, Trashy Divorces style? This is the episode for you! Alicia brings you the tragic story of Betty Broderick’s ultimately fatal obsession with her ex-husband Dan and his second wife Linda.

The genius of professional wrestling in the Vince McMahon era is likely the creation of near mythological characters whose real lives are often rolled up into the unreal world in which they work. Hulk Hogan was one of the most famous people in America in the 1980s and 1990s, a wholesome brute of a character who admonished his “Hulkamaniac” fans to train, say their prayers, and take their vitamins. The reality was different. His vitamins were anabolic steroids, and his wife Linda believed that he was frequently unfaithful to her. Stacie has all the salacious details of their divorce, his sex tape scandal, and the ongoing legal drama that seems to be a permanent fixture for the former couple. As comically bad as that was, Alicia has a sadder story still: the real life love between Randy “Macho Man” Savage and Miss Elizabeth, the First Lady of Professional Wrestling.

Demi Moore has not had an easy life, despite how it has often looked from the outside. With the release of her memoir Inside Out, she gets very real with her fans and readers. This week, we share the surprising success of her divorce from Bruce Willis, and the catastrophic failure of her marriage to Ashton Kutcher.

They say that if you don’t laugh, you’ll have to cry, and that seems very true of our subjects this week. Comedian Richard Pryor revolutionized the art form when he stormed onto the scene in the 1960s. By the end of the decade, he was one of the edgiest and most successful voices in comedy. Alicia documents his five wives, six divorces, and seven marriages – as well as the profoundly difficult childhood he survived but never quite outran. Then, Stacie has the strange life and career of pathbreaking comedienne Roseanne Barr, whose quick rise from the comedy clubs of Denver to the bright lights of Hollywood inspired a generation to take a stab at stand-up. Her early ’90s romance with comedian Tom Arnold was seemingly designed for the tabloids. Her story is complicated, baffling, and in many ways, sad. Can’t get enough #trashcandy?

A while back, we covered the tumultuous relationship between John McEnroe and Tatum O’Neal and learned something funny: TV legend and record shattering film director Penny Marshall and Hollywood royalty/Star Wars icon Carrie Fisher threw each other a birthday party every year. This week, we have the not-that-trashy divorces of lifelong best friends Penny Marshall and Carrie Fisher. Stacie has Penny, who was married twice, first to the father of her daughter, and next to fellow TV legend and later film director Rob Reiner. The first lasted three years, the second ten, but it seems that Penny maintained warm ties to both. Alicia has Carrie, who was in a long relationship with musician Paul Simon that included a brief marriage in the middle. Simon’s song Hearts and Bones documents the end of the relationship, but it sure seems like their love never really died. Can’t get enough #trashcandy?

This week, we have just one story, but it’s kind of a story with everything. Alicia brings us the life and loves of Pablo Picasso, the legendary artist and Certified Problematic Person. He had nine great romances in his life, but unfortunately, he tended to leave the women who’d loved him worse off, sometimes with tragic results. Need more #trashcandy in your life?

This week, we have two incredible divorce stories from the entertainment world. First up, Stacie has the 2015 split of celebrity chef Bobby Flay and Law and Order: SVU actress Stephanie March. This divorce is one of the ways that Stacie learned to love divorce stories. Then Alicia has a reality television couple who were plus eight, until they were minus each other: Kate and Jon Gosselin. Learn about Alicia’s mental construct of “the dude,” and how Jon’s incessant dude-ing made it impossible to be the husband and father his family deserved.

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?)

I listened to 2 episodes. The gist of the running theme is men are selfish and bad and women are pure and victims. This definition is true even when both sexes have done the exact same thing. (i.e. Man cheats "OMG. What a creep". Woman cheats "Mazel tov. Spread your wings girl" 🙄) Too bad. This could have been a cool premise but not if the people behind it aren't honest.

Hi Ladies, I've not been listening long but the few I've listened are bananas. I do have a concern about S1 E12 Zelda. You are so emotionally invested in Zelda that you ruined the story for me. I got impatient with your endless rants. I deleted the story and move on to the next episode.

Alicia ( forgive me, I don't know the correct spelling of your name) I hate when people don't know the correct pronunciation of things, too, so thank you for the lesson. Seriously! I also hate it when Americans call Afternoon tea " High tea", as I have no doubt you know the difference. I love you both so much!!!
