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. We’ll be back next week with regular programming. Thank you for your patience and your kind words. Join us at Venkman’s in Atlanta December 29 for A Very Trashy New Year! Get your tickets here.

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. This week, we take you through her four divorces – some more trashy than others – while we marvel at her enduring friendship and co-parenting relationship with musician and second husband, Billy Joel.

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. Then, Stacie introduces her new imaginary true crime podcast Squeamish, with the brutal tale of the murder of David Harris by his wife Clara Harris, and the three trashy divorces that got them to that point.

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.

What’s in your wallet? Well, if you’re one of our subjects this week, the answer is piles and piles of money! First up, Alicia has the dirt on a towering figure of the 20th century, Howard Hughes. Hughes was a titan of industry, a Hollywood mogul, an engineer and inventor, a pilot and aircraft designer, and one of the richest people in the world during his flamboyant but ultimately tragic life. Next, Stacie has the dish on a modern version of the same type of mind: Jeff Bezos, whose 25-year-long marriage to novelist MacKenzie Bezos ended this year. They split a $137 billion fortune and fended off an extortion plot allegedly masterminded by Saudi Arabia. It’s quite the tale. Can’t get enough #trashcandy?

We love going a little bit sideways with our season finale episodes! Stacie has the scoop on a weird historical moment we’re in: For the first time ever, an American political party has fielded a presidential primary contest featuring only divorced people. Seriously, this has never happened before and would have been unthinkable until very recently. Now, we’re the only people even mentioning it (it’s kind of our brand). Come meet your 2020 Republican primary field and get the scoop on all their trashbaggery! Let’s give it up for Donald Trump, Bill Weld, Joe Walsh, and Mark Sanford! Then, Alicia ends her string of podcast no-tears with the story of soothing 1970s crooner and trashbag (it turns out), John Denver. He had two marriages that ended in divorce, and both experiences revealed some disturbing things about the man. We’re off next week, but we’re asking for your divorce stories! If we get enough, we’ll put together an episode for you featuring listeners’ trashy divorces! Got a trashy divorce in your life? Share the dirt (no real names, please!) at trashydivorces@gmail.com.
This week, we’ve got two of the most beloved performers to have graced us in decades. Alicia’s got the intense story of Whitney Houston, an incredible talent whose path was in many ways set by the agendas of those around her. Her 14-year-long marriage to Bobby Brown was ultimately catastrophic, and her untimely death was tragic beyond words. In the second half, Stacie leads the first meeting of the Sandra Bullock Fan Club of Trashy Divorces. Sandra’s five-year-long marriage to West Coast Chopper Jesse James blew up spectacularly when his numerous infidelities hit the tabloid press just days after Sandra won her first Oscar.

Stacie’s had a lot of requests to cover the dirtbaggery that was former Alabama Governor Robert Bentley and the affair that tanked his administration. It turns out it was much more than an extramarital dalliance; it was symbolic of the deep corruption at the heart of Alabama’s government just a few short years ago. Then, Alicia has a delightful story about a really surprising historical fact about Alabama. We’re pretty sure you’ll be surprised, too. Sources and more at trashydivorces.com.
Hey friends – we’ve got a special episode for you this week. We’re prepping for our live show tonight and realized we’d be more likely to stay sane if we didn’t try to create two stories each this week. In that spirit, we bring you two timehopping stories from our Patreon files. First, Alicia has the almost unbelievable story of Eleanor of Aquitaine, a 12th century badass who was queen to two European kings and whose genes continue to animate most of the remaining royal houses of the continent. Alicia was deluged with requests for this story, and it does not disappoint. Then, Stacie has a bizarre tale that sprung from our Werewolves of London episode in season two. The 1971 Baker Street Bank Robbery in London has sometimes been linked to the excesses of Princess Margaret, but there’s reason to think that it may also be tied to the enduring scandal that engulfed the British government in the Profumo Affair. Please enjoy, and if you like these divorce-adjacent pieces, join us on Patreon for as little as $2 a month. Promo this week: Care/Of and Lola – just add “trashy” at checkout.
Who’s too sexy for this podcast? Not our subjects this week, widely recognized as two of the Sexiest Men Alive, and their equally jaw-dropping ex-wives. First up, Stacie has country superstars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, and seriously, if you don’t Miranda’s back story, buckle up. It’s amazing.  Then, Alicia brings us the much bleaker story of the six-year-long marriage of 70s/80s heartthrob Burt Reynolds and his wife Loni Anderson. It was the divorce without end, but also, the story of Loni Anderson surviving and thriving after an abusive relationship. Housekeeping: As of publication, there are still some tickets left for our Atlanta show with Erica Kelley of Southern Fried True Crime on August 25. Visit Venkmans.com to get yours. We can’t wait to see you!
This week, it’s one of the most famous Leos of our time, two-time divorcee, and cultural and musical legend: Madonna. First up, Alicia has the story of her short and turbulent 1980s marriage to fellow Leo and Hollywood bad boy Sean Penn. Then, Stacie has the deets on Madonna’s second marriage, to filmmaker Guy Ritchie, and the custody battle that followed with – but not exactly over – their son, Rocco. Don’t forget your tickets for our August 25 show in Atlanta with Erica Kelley of Southern Fried True Crime, on sale now at venkmans.com.
It’s Alicia’s birthday week, and in her honor, we’re jumping in to the stories of two hilarious redheads. She’s got the surprisingly affectionate divorce of comedienne Lucille Ball and her amazingly capable, eventual ex-husband Desi Arnaz. Then Stacie explains that D-List icon Kathy Griffin is best understood as one of those 1970s Weeble toys: she may wobble sometimes, but there’s nothing that’s going to knock that woman down. Don't forget your tickets to our August 25 Atlanta show with Erica Kelley of Southern Fried True Crime. Check out venkmans.com for all the details!
Today we take a look at some lifestyles of the rich and famous, and their playground, Palm Beach, Florida. Stacie has the incredible story of a 20th century titan, Marjorie Merriweather Post, who was a four-time-divorcee and one-time richest woman in America. Then Alicia brings us the decidedly more laid back lifestyle of Peter Pulitzer and his wife Lilly Pulitzer (nee McKim), who lived an oddball lifestyle among Florida’s orange groves that led Lilly into fashion design.

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!!!

This is one of my absolute favorite podcasts. It is so incredibly interesting and well-researched, and the hosts do an amazing job spilling the tea. I go back to work for the week with funny little nuggets of info to delight my coworkers with. It makes things suck a little less.
