"So you're telling me there's a chance." Ann and Amanda discuss part 2 of the Summer House Season 8 reunion and OH how the turn tables ... no matter whose side you're on, hopefully we can all agree that it was the right decision for Carl and Lindsay to break their engagement. Also, Ann gives us an update on her first official week at Something About Her! NOTE: We recorded this episode's intro segment on Father's Day, which was definitely challenging for Ann -- to any NDAngels who need a little extra support around Father's Day for whatever reason, the WSANDA team sends you love <3Then the gals interview undeniably hilarious comedian and former celebrity dog walker Jackie Michele Johnson (25:28) about the A-list dogs that won her heart and destroyed her car. Tune in to hear about a disastrous girls trip, horrible boyfriends, and all the excrement that might escape you or your canine passengers in LA traffic.Before letting Jackie go, Ann and Amanda get her expert opinions on celebrity makeup and skincare brands (1:17:32).

"I don't hate you. I just see you." If one thing's for sure on this season of Summer House, it's that Paige freakin' DeSorbo rides HARD for her girls. In the first installment of the SH8 Reunion, we graze the Carl-Lindsay breakup, but the real drama starts when Andy steers the conversation toward the Ciara-West summer situationship. The girlies rush to Ciara's defense and it is both beautiful and terrifying. Wonder what West's DMs are lookin like now ... ("We were all rooting for you!" - Tyra Banks)Ann also recaps an unhinged YouTube Live show (aka verbal car crash) featuring Kyle Chan and Victoria Lee that is currently melting her brain (16:40).Then the gals interview mensch, daytime television survivor, and supportive husband Travis Helwig (28:24). A non-Japanese writer and comedian, he worked for Ellen (Shmellen DeShmeneres), Billy on the Street, and Adam Ruins Everything, among others ... and all of that was totally fine and chill! Tune in to hear some WILD BTS stories, Travis's thoughts on NDAs, and the tale of how he made it "to Hollywood from Asbestos, Connecticut."As we near the finish line on our 20th episode, Ann and Amanda pay homage to another volume-challenged comedian, Mr. Billy Eichner, borrowing his "For a Dollar" segment and yelling at lovely Travis who did absolutely nothing to deserve such treatment (1:20:15).Check out:Travis's instagram - travishelwigHacks!Up and Adam!

"He did you a favor." Ann and Amanda recap the Summer House Season 8 Finale ... that's right, we've reached the highly anticipated Carl-Lindsay breakup brawl. Chivalry may be dead, but girlhood is very much alive!Then the gals talk to the wickedly talented Erin Byrne (26:48) -- comedian, writer, poet, and niche coffee order expert -- about their bonkers time working as an assistant at a heavyweight animation studio (codename: The Bears). For legal reasons, we cannot stress enough how much this studio is NOT DISNEY.Before they tap out, Amanda and Ann play a new game called "KO Line for the Supertease" (1:18:42). To help Lindsay Hubbard prepare for the Summer House reunion tomorrow (which was filmed weeks ago WE KNOW), our hosts pitch some mic drop material for her to use on Carl.Check out:The Creative Independent (their instagram)LISTENER SUBMISSIONS: If you have fun/weird/wild stories about your experience as an assistant/support staff, interesting behind-the-scenes Hollywood tidbits, or questions for Ann and Amanda, please send them to wsandasubmissions@gmail.com.

"Choke. I don't care." In the third and final installment of the VPR Season 11 reunion*, Lala doubles down on her statements from the final moments of the season finale, but Ann and Amanda think there's more than meets the delulu. As one of our nation's tallest (and saddest) president's once said, "United we stand. Divided we fall, Lala." (You'll get it when you listen). Plus, Ann delivers Something About Her sandwiches on screen and some behind-the-scenes tidbits on pod.*CW: This episode's VPR reunion recap includes a discussion about abuse, violence, and PTSD. If you'd prefer to skip this section, pause at 14 minutes and skip to (28:55).Then the gals interview writer, comedian, and "Sick Little Freak" star Sarah Bebb (31:17) about her time as a mashed-potato-loving intern at "Shmeorge Shmooney's" production company and other delightfully awkward Hollywood moments!To finish off our final VPR S11 episode, Ann, Amanda, and Sarah revisit one of their favorite segments, "Meet Me in the Sprinter Van" (01:14:20).

“I do fetal position sobbing in private.” Amanda and Ann dive right into VPR Season 11 Reunion Part 2. Lala continues to "not understand" (read: completely disregard) her friends' boundaries. Jo pulls up a chair to address her situationship with Schwartz (and the other women defend her in a true feat of girlhood). Andy loves Ann (and we love Andy right back).Then the gals talk to Aviel Mann Ballo (31:15), a musician, agency survivor, and absolute sweetheart who most recently worked as a writer's room assistant on the upcoming series Star Trek: Starfleet Academy. Warning: Interview contains adorable nerd love story. (A note from our producer: "Go Bears")Before they relieve themselves, Ann and Amanda give us a new segment called "Freeze, NY-Pee-Pee!" (1:24:27).

"I was very impressionable..." The VPR gang reunites (part 1) to rehash Season 11 and things start to re-heat up. Sandoval says some stupid stuff. Katie and Lala argue. Lisa is Lisa-ish.**Next, Amanda and Ann discuss Ann's debut appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen (20:08)! Dreams really do come true!! Who brought soup to the Clubhouse? Were the gals offered coke in the bathroom? Was Ann allowed to drink her lemon drop?? You'll have to listen to find out!! (Also, if you're the PA who makes drinks at WWHL, dm us please - thanks!)Then, the gals talk to comedian, musician, and all-around Renaissance man Zach Olsen (30:50), who was also (briefly) an assistant to Tom Sandoval (dun dun duuuuun).To close out the show, Ann and Amanda play a game inspired by their recent trip to the WWHL Clubhouse (1:15:50)!**CONTENT WARNING: This episode's VPR recap includes a discussion about suicidal ideation.

"I am the final boss in his video game of redemption." On the finale of VPR Season 11, things boil over in the Bay Area. Dan gets grilled, Scheana takes the stage, and the gang, led by Lala (and perhaps fueled by the green-eyed monster), turns on Ariana. Amanda and Ann get into it all (in a raw, remote, sleepy, silly haze).Then the gals interview comedian Jessica Svendsgaard (36:14), the beautiful bartender featured on VPR S11 in the sexy singles episode, about what it was like working for Tom, the joys of being compensated for ones labor, and her many creative pursuits. Before they say au revoir, Ann, Amanda, and Jess share the Taylor Swift eras in which they currently reside (1:25:00). Check out:Jessica's Instagram - thebyebyemancuckedmeJessica's TikTok - systemvulvadownLISTENER SUBMISSIONS: If you have fun/weird/wild stories about your experience as an assistant/support staff, interesting behind-the-scenes Hollywood tidbits, or questions for Ann and Amanda, please send them to wsandasubmissions@gmail.com.

"Give me an example of male rage." This week on VPR, the gang heads to San Francisco (Yay Area!). Ariana is gaslit, Dan is hot, and Ann is (allegedly) employed (yay!). Amanda and Ann talk about it. Then the gals interview the delightful Lucinda Pace (33:24) about her experience as an interior designer to the rich and famous or, as Ann puts it, "Silver Lake mamas."Yes, and ... Ann and Amanda perform a brief improv scene (1:24:48) inspired by the bottomless (ball) pit of awkwardness that is Jo and Schwartz's situationship.Check out:Lucinda's company - Concept XLLucinda's Instagram - pacelikeversace** Producer's Note: The gals are having a rough time right now.

"There's a lot of male yelling..."  This week on VPR, Scheana and Brock are on the rocks, Katie is a sexy gem, and Sandoval is throwing stones. And on The Valley, there's a distressing defecation (marine biologists please weigh in on this one). Amanda and Ann discuss it all!Then they talk to fellow VPR podcaster and comedian Jason Horton about his time at E! News (28:44)!Before we put this episode to bed(rock), the gals play a new game inspired by Lala's iconic line "Disengage, bitch!"

"Life without Ann." This week on Vanderpump Rules, we see what life at Tom and Ariana's house looks like without our beloved Ann. Shoes on the table?? We also see James confront Tom about his many lies and all the girls and gays celebrating new life at Lala's sperm donor party (which is the cutest thing ever). May the best sperm win!! Amanda and Ann unpack these things and more.[CW: Ann talks about death, PTSD, and her experience working in close proximity with someone at risk of self-harm. If you'd like to avoid this section, pause at about 5 minutes in and skip to 08:00.]Next, Ann & Amanda discuss Summer House and check in on quarreling spouses Kyle & Amanda.Then the gals interview feminist filmmaker and resident "Halloween Girl" Lucé Tomlin-Brenner (26:48) about her past life as an assistant to a celebrity fitness guru. They talk bodies, bodies, bodies and the bonkers standards of La La Land.Before class is dismissed (01:14:34), Amanda and Ann follow in Lala's footsteps and share what they'd look for in a sperm donor.

"I'm soft now." This was an emo episode of VPR (and it wasn't even emo night). Lots of deep convos: Ariana & Lala, Lala & Jo, Jo & Schwartz. Also, Katie opts to eat another jacket rather than do a group activity with Sandoval (jacket: leather, activity: paintball).Next on the agenda: Summer House (17:28) -- welcome to the WSANDA rotation! Tensions are high in the Hamptons. We've got a flower boy, a fancy dinner (thrown by our Lord and Savior Paige DeSorbo), and several more fights. Amanda and Ann get into it.Then the gals get their minds blown and their worlds rocked by sexy, insightful Brooklyn-based apprentice dominatrix "Holly" (29:22). They talk lube fairies, feet pics, pay pigs, pegging, and so much more. (Also, doesn't "The Dominatrix's Apprentice" sound like an incredible movie title?)For this week's happy ending (1:10:40), Ann and Amanda play "Safe Word" a new game where they imagine what safe words various Bravolebs might choose (this quickly devolves into free word association).If you want to be sexy and smart, check out Holly's wonderful resources:The Sex EdThe Wheel of ConsentMeet the dominatrix who requires the men who hire her to read Black feminist theoryDominatrices are showing people how to have rough sex safelyKamaPleasure ActivismThe Ethical SlutWe dare you to subscribe and double dog dare you to turn on automatic downloads.

“If he had HR, he’d be fucked.” This VPR episode is a doozy for our dear Ann. She's "professional and prepared," but she's also fired (or is she?!). There's a kitchen interview (that leads to an outburst about Ann), a sparkling water tasting party (where the VPR gang inquires about and then Ariana and Tom fight about Ann), and then a cursed beach day (during which another argument breaks out about Ann). Mercury is in fact in retrograde. Ann is here to share her side of the story and Amanda is here to defend her friend to the ends of the Earth."SECOND of all," the gals sit down with Rebecca Leib (42:06), former celebrity psychic’s assistant and current ghost girlie. She shares some of her favorite anecdotes from her support staff jobs, including a game show hosted by Jane Lynch and a ghost hunting show that had her stay at an extremely creepy haunted mansion while tipsy. They also talk about how teeny tiny Lala, Ariana, and celebrities in general are in real life. Before class is dismissed, they play a new game, “True Crime, Fake Crime,” (1:24:36) and tell a truly unhinged tale about Taylor Armstrong of Real Housewives fame and her imagined untimely death by candle. If you don’t understand it, you’re paying attention.Rebecca’s plugs:If you want more Rebecca in your ears, you’re in luck!

"You're a prize ... he is not the prize." This week on VPR, it's a tale of two (broken) relationships. It's also a tale of girl's girls and not-so-girl's girls. Plus: real estate drama (congrats on your new house Ariana!), a secret Vegas makeout, very guttural breathwork with Dr. Vu, and our dearest Ann shoots her shot with a potential new boss ... Amanda and Ann are here to gab about it all.Then, the gals talk to comedy queen and podcaster extraordinaire Aricia Skidmore-Williams (22:44) about all her wild stories from the trenches of assistanthood. Aricia's building an empire; we have no choice but to stan.For this week's final act, Lauren Payton (from last week!) is back to talk "Swag Runoff," cool/fun/weird hand-me-downs from previous bosses (1:13:13).Check out:Aricia's InstagramAricia's many podcasts: Even The Rich, Even The Royals, Rich and DailyAnn's CameoWe dare you to subscribe and double dog dare you to turn on automatic downloads.

"Shoes on the chair?!" This week on VPR we watched our girl Ann swiffer for her goddamn life, and heard Ariana ask the important questions: What exactly is Ann's job description? And why does it feel like she's becoming Tom's mom? Also in this ep: sexy singles in a pool, a situationship in a swan boat, a sad Sandoval in a closet ... and Amanda and Ann are here to unpack it all!Then the gals interview content creator, comedian, and proud girl kisser Lauren Payton about her adventures in assistant-ing: the good, the bad, and the absolutely delulu (36:26). Her stories are cuckoo bananas, so strap in. Giggles abound, fun codenames guaranteed.To round out the episode, Ann, Amanda, and Lauren deliver another installment of "If They Were Your Boss" (1:17:30) -- they choose some celebs and riff on how they might treat their staff.Check out:Lauren's Instagram (hi.poppylaur)Lauren's TikTok (poppylaur)Ann's CameoWe dare you to subscribe and double dog dare you to turn on automatic downloads.

"I'll unpack my feelings." "Privately?" "Yeah." "Thank you." As Ann puts it, this week's episode of VPR feels like "Social Survivor." Alliances are deepening, rifts are widening, and everyone is scoping out where their friends fall on the Sandoval Banishment Spectrum. Amanda and Ann analyze this episode's many "windsights" (windows + insights, get on board!) into why some VPR cast members are clinging to their friendship with Tom, what their motivations could be, and what power dynamics may or may not be at play. Also featured in this episode: Jessica "The Brain" (Lala's assistant - hey girl!), baby Ally Taylewber Swift, and the return of Jwartz/Schwo.Then, the gals talk to comedian and noted Tom Sandoval impressionist Chris Burns, known to many on the internet as Fat Carrie Bradshaw (22:18), about the server-by-night-performer-by-much-later-at-night grind, life as a video content creator, hot takes on Gilmore Girls, Lisa freakin' Barlow, and more!To close us out, Chris sticks around for a little improv exercise starring Ann as Ann, Chris as Tom Sandoval, and Amanda as a TSA agent (57:20).

"Another fight, another vehicle." Amanda and Ann wade into the icy waters of Lake Tahoe as Superstorm Sandoval wreaks havoc on the VPR friend group.

"Hot babes and wolves" ... what more could you ask for!? Amanda and Ann dive into Lake Tahoe with the Vanderpump gang (Tom Sandoval has re-joined the group ... yikes). We've got a derpy wolf, we've got a bee sacrifice, we've got deeply uncomfortable pre-Tahoe shopping trips, but do we have accountability from Sandoval? That is the question.Then the gals interview Raiza Licea (Artistic Director at Upright Citizens Brigade, former assistant to Juanes) and Milagro Morales (ceramicist, current assistant to Raiza Licea) about the comedy and improv community at UCB, hot takes on VPR, Drake's [redacted], and their experiences as Latina artists in Los Angeles. Beware of extreme silliness.To finish us off, Ann and Amanda share their Real Housewives taglines (spoiler alert: may contain beans).Check out:Spanish Aquí PresentsRaiza's play - YBOR CITYRaiza's InstagramMila's CeramicsBrown Girl TravelsMila's coffee shop recs - Picaresca, Café SantoWe dare you to subscribe and double dog dare you to turn on automatic downloads.

First of all, thank you for reading the episode notes. Second of all, this one's a goodie. Ann and Amanda start with a nuanced conversation about mental health, accountability, and "Scheana Twain" in recapping Vanderpump Rules Season 11 Episode 4. Amanda also shares a very important observation about Katie. Then Jacki Merchant enters the chat (18:40) to answer so many questions about how the reality TV sausage gets made. She touches on Frankenbites, notes from execs, the role of alcohol and drink limits, and ethical boundaries. Ann and Amanda bring things home with their new segment "If They Were Your Boss," where they speculate about how various celebrities/bravolebrities would treat their assistant.This is a month where we highlight and honor Black history in America and many in our Bravo community could be extremely triggered by the insensitivity of Tom’s  comments in the New York Times, especially in our current cultural climate. If you have any questions about why Tom Sandoval’s comments about OJ Simpson and George Floyd were insensitive, would like to further educate yourselves on racial inequality in America, or donate to the BLM survival fund, please go to:https://blacklivesmatter.comhttps://naacp.orghttps://naacpldf.orghttps://colorofchange.org/**CONTENT WARNING: This episode's VPR recap includes mentions of police brutality (00:2:45 - 00:3:32) and sexual violence (00:4:37 to 00:4:44 and 00:16:04 to 00:16:19) and a longer discussion about suicide.

Yeah, that's right, it's Emo Night. Amanda and Ann unpack the VPR squad's on-screen drama as they continue to grapple with the fallout of Scandoval and it's effect on their friend group.Then, Ann's former co-worker and beloved friend Jeffrey Rizzi shares some of his favorite stories from working the VIP section at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, featuring some of our most lovable stars: Regina Spektor, Dylan Mulvaney, Jack Black, and more. "It’s a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock n’ Roll)" and that's what this podcast is all about. **CONTENT WARNING: This episode's VPR recap includes a discussion about suicide, self-harm, and addiction.

Amanda (calling all the way from New Zealand and positively at war with the wifi) asks Ann about her experience filming VPR S11 eps 1 & 2.  What was it like working as the go-between for Tom and Ariana post-breakup?? Short answer: yikes. Longer answer: listen to the episode!Then the gals interview the lovely and talented Molly Kiernan (writer, actor, assistant extraordinaire), who was Ann's assistant at BravoCon! Messy cars, hot takes on Home Alone, snail placenta ... we've got it all!In the words of our very own VPR starlet, "sorry to bother youuuuu," but we would like to acknowledge that the audio ain't perfect for this episode.
