S16E18: Somebody's Watching Me | The Corporate Calamity of Liz Elting and Phil Shawe
2302
When a divorcing couple owns a business together, figuring out how to handle it can be a huge pain. Today's couple, while never married, were the engine behind the founding and growth of a wildly successful company. As their personal animosity toward each other grew over the years, the in-office acrimony between TransPerfect founders Philip Shawe and Elizabeth Elting became the stuff of legal legend in the Chancery Court of Delaware - and far beyond.

3033
Some stories shoot right past "trashy" and head straight for "disturbing," and that is the case of murdered socialite Barbara Daly Baekeland.

S16E12: Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under | Brandi Glanville and Eddie Cibrian
3092
Infidelity is bad enough, but to learn about your husband's infidelity from Us Weekly is a different level of bad. That's more or less the story of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville and her ex-husband, actor Eddie Cibrian, whose high-profile split sounds like it was a real doozy.

Keke Palmer has questions for days, about everything under the sun. From the existential to the inconsequential. From pop culture to pop science. From the meaning of life to the meaning of W.A.P. From life in outer space to “Where the eff is Tom from MySpace?“ And everything in between. Because Baby, this is Keke Palmer, and she is here for All. Of. It. Each week, the multi-talented Keke is taking you on a journey down the rabbit hole on a topic that she cannot stop obsessing over. She’ll also get deep with special guests, trying to answer the questions that keep us up at night. We are getting INTO IT.

S16E11: Billionaire | Should Somebody Check on Our Oligarchs? (ft. Ye, Elon Musk, and Jeff Bezos)
2764
Lately it's felt like Trashy Divorces alums have been dominating the headlines, and not for any good reasons. Stacie catches us up with the costly anti-Semitism of Ye, the bizarre bird business blunders of Elon Musk, and the (allegedly) UTI-inducing management practices of Jeff Bezos.

S16E10: Disappearing Act | Lucky Lord Lucan: Act I (Done & Dunne Crossover)
3368
Today we wanted to give you a glimpse of Alicia's other podcast, Done & Dunne! She's been hard at work on a five-part series on Lord Lucan, which is now live. We covered the 1974 disappearance of Lord Lucan following the grisly murder of his children's nanny a couple of years ago, and in this bingeable five-parter, Alicia goes much, much deeper into the case. Enjoy part one - and grab the rest at Done & Dunne wherever you listen to podcasts! Welcome to Season 5 of Done & Dunne and our investigation into the mysterious vanishing of Richard John Bingham, the 7th Earl of Lucan, also known as Lucky. John Bingham certainly started life on a lucky streak. This episode delves into Lord Lucan’s background, including his family, early childhood, and meeting his future wife Veronica Duncan. We also introduce our wide cast of characters, all playing in the hot spot of swinging 1960s London, John Aspinall’s Clermont Club, and Mark Birley’s Annabel’s. Sponsors The Oak Tree Group.

2735
While she wasn't exactly a Desperate Housewife in real life, actress Eva Longaria did find herself dragged into an ugly scandal by her second husband, basketball player Tony Parker. It seems that Tony had been carrying on with the wife of one of his San Antonio Spurs teammates for quite a while, a decision that ruptured two marriages and nearly got him excommunicated from his team.

Who better to feature on Halloween weekend than a pioneer of Hollywood horror flicks? Actor Boris Karloff is best known for his nuanced portrayal of Frankenstein's Monster in the 1931 film.

2149
There's some real truth to the maxim "Mo' money, mo' problems," and perhaps no former couple knows that better than hedge fund giant Steve A. Cohen and his first wife, Patricia. She was skeptical of his financial disclosures when they divorced at the end of the 1980s, but it was her 2009 lawsuit alleging racketeering and insider trading at his SAC Capital that seemed to kick federal regulators into high gear.

Musician Kenny Rogers became a beloved pioneer of the "story song" - that took country music, and then many other charts, by storm in the late 70s and 80s.

09 Trashy Breakups: Don't Worry Baby | Florence Pugh and Zach Braff
1866
It's easy to forget, as we scroll our social media feeds, that there are real people on the far end of our comments. It's bad enough for us normies squabbling with our old co-worker from three jobs ago over the issues of the day, but for celebrities with massive followings, the peanut gallery can sting. It's a situation that actress Florence Pugh knows well. During her three-plus year long relationship with actor-writer-director Zach Braff, there was much to say about their 21-year age difference. So much so that they kept their 2022 breakup under wraps for months. Want early, ad-free episodes, limited series, Zoom hangouts, and more? Join us at patreon.com/trashydivorces!

S15E8: Take A Bow | Rex Harrison
4127
Rex Harrison became a legendary star of stage and screen during a career that spanned most of the 20th century, but it would be wrong to think he was beloved by all. With six marriages and a fatal love affair, it's safe to assume that his reputation for being hard to work with extended into the domestic sphere. He may have been Doctor Dolittle in his time, but these days, he's what we call a Trashy Divorces All-Star. Want early, ad-free episodes, limited series, Zoom hangouts, and more?

Lest you think that America's culture of celebrity for no reason is new, Stacie is here to assure you that isn't remotely the case.

06 Trashy Breakups: Suite: Judy Blue Eyes | Judy Collins and Stephen Stills
1888
Alicia has the story of an unforgettable romance - not because it was long-lasting, but because of how it was documented. In the 60s, a new generation of young musicians were pioneering modern music. In this milieu, Stephen Stills was particularly taken with Judy Collins, and penned a song for the ages in an effort to win her heart.

Having spent some time on Henry VIII for Sunday's episode, Alicia decided to highlight a truly terrible female monarch. Russian history has no shortage of bad rulers, but for sheer cavalier and capricious sadism, Empress Anna's 18th century reign of terror sets her apart as (perhaps) Russia's worst empress.

Then, Alicia dips into one of the 20th century's most fascinating sets of siblings, the Mitford Sisters. Diana Mitford married well, but restlessness led her to an affair with British Fascist leader Oswald Mosley, as well as a long-running flirtation with fascism itself. Sponsors Dipsea.

Thanks for your patience while we bounce back from our third covid shots. The architect Stanford White (1853-1906) is credited with a host of landmark structures in New York City and beyond, but it was his sexual predation of young girls, especially the model Evelyn Nesbit, that led to his shockingly public murder and the 1907 "Trial of the Century" in its aftermath.

Kennedy, began the romance with two strikes against it: his Roman Catholic family, which would never approve of him marrying a divorcee, and his laser focus on being elected president one day.

Introducing Power: Hugh Hefner
332
Power: Hugh Hefner is the follow-up to the show’s smash-hit premiere season, Power: The Maxwells. In its second season, Power is examining the rise of Playboy and the legacy of its founder. The pool at the mansion photographed well, but can you imagine actually being in the water? How much of man-boy culture is Playboy responsible for? How influential was Hefner in sexualizing under-age girls? How did the veneer and brand he created excuse and overlook the abuse that occurred on his compound? It’s time to look at the power of the man in the smoking jacket. Hosted by Amy Rose Spiegel of VICE, Power: Hugh Hefner centers the women of Playboy – the bunnies, the centerfolds, the executives – and utilizes a feminist lens to critique the playboy lifestyle that the magazine championed.

As we get our TDHQ2 studio dialed in, we're bringing you a few of our favorite things!

Then Stacie has a political sex scandal so amazing that it took almost a century for the full contours to be revealed. Warren G. Harding wasn't just America's 29th president; he was also an inveterate skirt chaser and, thankfully, a prolific and wide open letter writer.

5826
Hello friends! We're having a slight schedule change this week and bringing you Trashy Royals today, and our normally scheduled Trashy Divorces episode on Wednesday*. This week, Alicia has the incredible story of Lady Jane Grey, England's Nine Days' Queen, who got caught in the succession rigmarole that characterized the decade between Henry VIII's death in 1547 and the ascension of Elizabeth I in 1558. This one features sickly King Edward VI, future Queen "Bloody" Mary I, and a host of political machinations that can only come from the gangland-style family intrigue we've come to know and love in the Court of the Tudors. We'll be back Wednesday with your regularly scheduled Trashy Divorces, and then back to the usual release schedule from there. *As you'll hear in the intro, we're mid-move and still working on sound treating our new recording room.

This week, Alicia has the story of one of her favorite people, Olivia Newton-John, who experienced a seriously trashy breakup when a longtime boyfriend disappeared without a trace.

S8E13: Crazy | Patsy Cline & Willie Nelson
4393
It’s the finale for Season 8, the end of our second year making Trashy Divorces, and of course, we’re wrapping up this abysmal year of 2020 with two Heroes of Trash Candy. It’s Trash Panda Idol week! First up, Stacie has the legendary singer Patsy Cline, whose two tumultuous marriages punctuated a life short but breathtakingly large. Country music’s first female superstar and crossover success, Patsy’s death at the age of 30 belied the enormity of her contributions to American culture, including turning the Willie Nelson-written song “Crazy” into a hit. Then, Alicia has that long-ago Crazy songwriter, the iconic Willie Nelson. Willie may have had three divorces and some side romps along the way, but we have yet to encounter a subject who is so at peace with the Trash Candy he’s bequeathed to the world, nor as generous to those he may have hurt along the way.

4532
Get ready for a couple of truly wild rides! First up, Stacie has some hilarious tea on one of America’s lesser-known Founders, Gouverneur Morris. He didn’t just copy edit the US Constitution; he was also such a ladies man that after an accident required the amputation of one of his legs, fellow Founder John Jay expressed that he wished Morris “had lost something else.” Then, Alicia has an old Hollywood tale featuring seduction, mob ties, and ultimately, the suspicious death of Hollywood’s first Superman, TV’s George Reeves.

American Woman: Gibson Girl | Evelyn Nesbit (Patreon Bonus!)
3986
Tuesdays in December on Patreon, Alicia is taking us on a journey through the iconic archetypes that have defined femininity across the decades. This week's American Woman is the "Gibson Girl," created by artist Charles Dana Gibson, and typified by Evelyn Nesbit, perhaps the first modern Supermodel. The Gibson Girl was the idealized portrait of modern womanhood at the dawn of the 20th century, but Evelyn Nesbit's story was shockingly real, featuring the manipulations of two powerful older men, an unwelcome role in "the crime of the century," and at long last, a measure of peace in her later years in California.

Then, Stacie takes us to a much darker place with the story of disgraced TV anchor Matt Lauer, whose workplace misbehavior destroyed his career and his marriage.

A cache of documents that became public in 2017 has prompted a re-evaluation of Mata Hari’s World War I loyalties and activities, and really made German and French intelligence look bad. Then, Stacie brings us to the 1990s, when comedian Ellen Degeneres caused the world to lose its mind by coming out as a lesbian.

Ready for a glimpse at Hollywood, old and new? First up, Alicia has a story so trashy that it erased a two-time Academy Award winner from Hollywood history: Gloria Grahame. At one point, she was married to her ex-son-in-law which meant that one of her four ex-husbands was her father-in-law. Yeah, it’s like that.

We’re going a little off-brand this week with a few not-trashy divorces, plus one that kind of was. First up, Alicia has the three marriages and divorces of Jane Fonda.

Then, Stacie has the story of America’s coolest blended family: Lisa Bonet, her ex-husband Lenny Kravitz, and her husband Jason Momoa.

4528
Sometimes a Trashy Divorce story is just a gateway to something much more delightfully awful! This week, Stacie has the trashy marriage and divorce (and on and on) of actress and model Pamela Anderson and Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee. But also: there’s a heist, some yak fur, a sex tape, and biker gangs terrorizing the porn industry! Seriously, this one goes places. Then, Alicia has the four loves and losses of Lisa Marie Presley. After a quickie divorce from her first marriage so she could wed Michael Jackson, and then a quickie marriage to Nicolas Cage, her first ex-husband is still one of her closest friends, and even played best man in her fourth wedding.

S6E7: Shellshock | Margaret Tudor & Amber Heard and Johnny Depp
4498
This week, we get up close and personal with Henry VIII’s sister, and deep dive into a very trashy listener request! Alicia has the three marriages of Margaret Tudor: daughter of Henry VII, one-time Queen of Scotland, legitimate Catholic divorcee, and mother of Scotland’s James V. Margaret’s story scandalized Christendom, at least until her brother lost his freaking mind. Speaking of dudes losing their minds, Stacie has the very not-funny story of Amber Heard and Johnny Depp. Their brief marriage ended in 2016 in a flurry of monstrous abuse allegations against Johnny Depp, and their continuing legal feud has only made the story uglier. Honestly, we’re a little worried about everyone in this story. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Then Stacie hops on the Trashy Divorces time machine to take us back to the 19th century with the bonzo story of Victoria Woodhull, America’s first female presidential candidate. Was she the most successful con artist of her day, or a medium and social reformer driven by her strong ideals? Honestly, we don’t have any idea.

S6E2: My Heart Will Go On | James Cameron and Linda Hamilton & John Lennon and Cynthia Lennon
4722
It’s listener request time! This week, Stacie covers filmmaker James Cameron, who spent much of his adult life engaging in something like serial monogamy and abusing the heck out of his subordinates. When he wasn’t making actors pee in wetsuits, he was marrying and divorcing in quick succession, most notably to Terminator actress Linda Hamilton. Then, Alicia puts some realism into the man, the myth, the legend, John Lennon. Turns out that the voice of a generation was pretty awful in his first marital go-round.

S6E1: Eye of the Tiger | Frank Lloyd Wright & Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren
4880
This week, we take a look at two pretty singular individuals who might have been better off staying single. First up, Alicia has the shockingly trashy story of American architectural master Frank Lloyd Wright. This one really has everything: tons of dirtbag behavior, horrific true crime, and another one of those “great men” whose personal lives are garbage. In a similar vein, Stacie remembers the 2009 cheating scandal that temporarily swamped golf legend-in-his-own-time Tiger Woods. No, he wasn’t cheating at golf. He was cheating on his wife, with basically every woman he’d ever met. Once the news broke, wife Elin Nordegren may or may not have taken out her rage with a golf club to their Cadillac Escalade.

I Love Trash (Bonus)
1190
We’re off this week, but wanted to check in with thanks, trashcandy, and some ideas that might help you disconnect from all the anxiety. Check out our catalog of Patreon stories pulled from the paywall, for your listening enjoyment: bit.ly/trashcandyquarantine Stacie recommends Year of Wonders: A Novel of the Plague, by Geraldine Brooks. It’s based on the true story of an English village that, back in 1666, way before anyone understood viruses, self-quarantined after plague broke out in the community. Fair warning, this is not light reading, so use your judgment. Alicia, much more wisely, recommends Unlocking Us, the new podcast by OG shero Brene Brown. This is probably a more soothing option than Stacie’s weird book recommendation. Then, we drop a few hints about Season 6, which begins next Sunday, April 5. Thanks so much for being part of the Trashy Divorces community. Stay safe, keep it trashy, and we’ll talk next week! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Welcome to the end of Season 5 and another host’s choice edition of Trashy Divorces! Stacie has the surprising and sad tale of model Anna Nicole Smith, whose Playboy notoriety, marriage to a billionaire octogenarian, and sometimes inexplicable life choices made her catnip to the tabloids and someone who was relatable to millions when she died.

6010
It’s all Judy Garland, all the time! This week, Stacie kicks us off with the mysterious and incredibly brief marriage between actress Renee Zellweger (who just won Best Actress for Judy) and country star Kenny Chesney. They tied the knot after knowing each other just five months, and when Renee filed to annul the marriage for “fraud” four months later, the media turned an ugly eye to Kenny. Then, Alicia has the heartbreaking story of Trashy Divorces All-Star Judy Garland, whose five marriages and four divorces were probably a predictable outcome of the horrifying ways she was mistreated as a child.

4498
The Mia Farrow-Frank Sinatra marriage and divorce is a story with surprising right-now resonance. Alicia shares the tale of how a very young Mia Farrow met and fell in love with Frank, who was expecting a very different kind of wife than he got. There’s also a cat. Then, Stacie brings us the story of another Trashy Divorces All-Star, Larry King, whose seven wives, eight marriages, and, now, eight divorces make him a real contender for some kind of themed prize we’re planning on inventing at some point.

Sinatra was a big booster for Ronald Reagan as California governor, part of Sinatra’s own shift from Democratic to Republican politics.

S5E4: Swinging on a Star | Patricia Kennedy Lawford and Peter Lawford & Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger
4845
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.

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.

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.

During the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, Bess held the affection of many men, but pony boy Robert Dudley found his feelings reciprocated.

S4E9: The Heat Is On | Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin & Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson
4259
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.

4469
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.

S4E7: Hit Me With Your Best Shot | Hulk Hogan and Linda Bollea & Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth
3679
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.

S4E5: The Tears of a Clown | Richard Pryor & Roseanne Barr and Tom Arnold
4539
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?

S4E4: You’re My Best Friend | Penny Marshall and Rob Reiner & Carrie Fisher and Paul Simon
4368
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?

S4E3: The Love Cats | The Nine Loves of Pablo Picasso
3601
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?

S4E2: Video | Stephanie March and Bobby Flay & Kate and Jon Gosselin
3804
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. Can’t get enough #trashcandy?

S4E1: Take The Money And Run | Howard Hughes & Jeff Bezos and MacKenzie Bezos
4752
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?

3078
We asked and you answered! This week, we’re getting season four teed up for September 29, but we promised an episode from the mailbag if you sent in your trashy divorce stories. We were inundated! This episode is just a taste of the amazing stories we’ve loved reading all week. This episode features couples who married too young, a nefarious lawyer, a globe trotting snob, a poorly executed kidnapping plot, a flaming wedding dress, a nanny’s betrayal, a hidden history of armed robbery, and so much more. We’ve enjoyed this whole thing more than we can say, and we’d love to make Dirty Details a (semi?) regular thing.

S3E12: Leaving on a Jet Plane | The 2020 Republican Primary Field & John Denver
5607
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.

S3E11: It’s Not Right But It’s Okay | Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown & Sandra Bullock and Jesse James
4993
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.

S3E10: Stars Fell on Alabama | Robert Bentley and Dianne Bentley & America’s Surprise Divorce Capital
3700
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.

S3E9: Driver 8 | Eleanor of Aquitaine & The Baker Street Robbery
5442
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.

3998
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. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

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.

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.

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.

First, Stacie has the incredibly trashy story of Tatum O’Neal, the youngest actor to ever win an Academy Award and a bona fide neglected and abused child, and her early marriage to career-focused and self-absorbed John McEnroe.

We sympathize with both of them, but mostly her. Then, Alicia has the incredible true life & love story of Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of Eat, Pray, Love, who demonstrates a beautiful and Pride-appropriate message that love is love is love… Learn more about your ad choices.

And to cover Elizabeth Taylor, we asked our friend Erica Kelley of the Southern Fried True Crime podcast to join us! Elizabeth Taylor was complex: a child star, a hard-drinking beauty, a foul-mouthed sophisticate, a one-take actor, an Oscar winner, a widow, a mother, an activist, and a many-time divorcee.

This week, Stacie shares a listener suggestion: Barnaby Joyce, former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia and, apparently, a trash man on the make. After a career as a family values champion, a 2018 sex scandal known as #barnababy brought a swift end to his 24-year-long marriage and a firm estrangement from his four daughters. After the break, Alicia has a story she’s been waiting her whole life to tell: Martha Mitchell, wife of Nixon-era Attorney General John Mitchell, and the flawed Cassandra of the Watergate scandal, and, in the memorable words of one listener, “that resourceful little drunk-dialer.” Learn more about your ad choices.

S2E3: Language or The Kiss | Agatha and Archie Christie & Nora Ephron and Carl Bernstein
5661
Join us for an exploration of the failed romances that shaped - but certainly didn't break - two pioneering women writers. First, Alicia brings us an enduring mystery from the life of the mother of the genre, Agatha Christie. On Friday, December 3, 1926, the 36-year-old author disappeared without a trace, only be found 11 days later safe and sound in a hotel in Harrogate. What happened during this period has been a point of speculation for nearly a century, and Alicia thinks she's got all the tea for this one. Then, Stacie brings us closer to current events with the unfortunate tale of the celebrated marriage of writers Nora Ephron and Carl Bernstein. When they wed in 1976, they were considered a power couple. Bernstein had recently been half of the dynamic duo who took down a president, and Ephron was a columnist for Esquire magazine who was reinventing the form for women. They were the life of party in DC and New York, until Bernstein fell for the wife of a foreign ambassador. From this catastrophe, Ephron rebuilt herself and her career, and found lasting greatness.

4612
This week, pull on something mustard yellow and get your glitter scarves out of the closet: we're taking a trip to the 1970s! First up, Stacie has the trashy situation that rock superstars Fleetwood Mac found themselves in circa 1977, when the whole band was a roiling mess of heartbreak, infidelity, illicit attraction, and power-pop prowess. In the second block, Alicia has the heartwrenching story of the marriage of Carly Simon and James Taylor. Though they had two children and spent years together, James's drug addiction eventually made the marriage untenable. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

S2E1: Cats in the Cradle | Donald Trump and Donald Trump, Jr.
4850
And we're back! In case you aren't familiar with the subjects of our season two opener, Donald Trump is the son of a real estate millionaire based in Queens, New York. He got into the family business as a young man and made a bit of a name for himself, ultimately becoming a reality TV star. Along the way, he had five children, three weddings, and a couple of trashy divorces. We're not ruling out a third divorce for him, either. His story is trashy, but it's even trashier when you dive into the life of his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. Don Jr. had a startlingly tragic adolescence and has gone on to live deep in the shadow of his father - and somehow decided that the senior Trump's life choices were something to emulate.

S1E12: Divorce Song | Zelda Sayre and F. Scott Fitzgerald & 12 E. 82nd Street
4914
For our season one finale – we’re taking one week off and will return March 31 – we wanted to play a little, so we’re telling some stories that might not normally fit into a theme this week. First, Alicia brings us the story of the King and Queen of the Jazz Age, writer F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda. Though they never actually divorced, the story is a great illustration of the reality that some marriages don’t work, and a lot of people would be better off ending a marriage rather than staying in it. Stacie follows that up with the story of a Manhattan address that ties together a bunch of Trashy Divorces threads. Its owners have included a previous Trashy Divorces subject, a divorcing couple we’re likely to cover in the future, and a slightly mysterious real estate magnate who will likely reappear.

This week we bring some soft focus with two divorces that seem to have left everybody – and perhaps the relationship itself – in better shape. First, Stacie tells the weird story of Sonny & Cher, and how Sonny’s unshakable vision of what Cher’s dreams looked like ultimately broke their relationship. Then Alicia shares the tale of England’s Prince Andrew and his lady love – possibly even to this day – Sarah Ferguson. They do seem to have had a spectacularly successful divorce.

S1E5: Smells Like Teen Spirit | Britney Spears & Drew Barrymore
3878
This week, we look at two women who got famous – and then got married – way too young. Britney Spears was a pop juggernaut before she was 18 years old.
