THE RHOBH episode we have waited for all season has finally arrived.

Heather Matarazzo steps back Behind The Rope. Heather chats about the full trajectory of her career from her first film, The Sundance winning “Welcome to The Dollhouse” to her current days as a working actress “making it” in Hollywood. Heather chats Dollhouse - what it was like to lead a feature film as your first project, how life changed after and why this film is still so beloved as the teen angst voice of “other” or “different” for many generations to come. We chat hot takes on some of Heather’s projects after Dollhouse - The Princess Diaries, Scream, Roseanne, The L Word and Grey’s Anatomy to name a few. Heather opens up about the struggles she has faced over the years in Hollywood trying to find work, the many misperceptions the public has about life in the biz, her viral tweets on the subject earlier this year, her own struggles with mental health as a result and where she, and Hollywood, are today regarding it all! Finally, as a member of the LGBTQIA community, Heather talks representation, new movie “The Mattachine Family” and, of course, her wife’s tribute book to Queen Madonna because as we often say, all roads lead back to Madame M.  @heathermatarazzo @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BROUGHT TO YOU BY: CBDISTILLERY - www.thecbdistillery.com (15% Off.

3483
There has been a lot of talk about Lisa Rinna’s RHOBH future and next season’s likely cast of RHOBH. We break down who is likely to stay, who is likely to go, who is likely to return from the past, who is likely to resign and will the online attack on Garcelle’s son affect any of this. In other West Coast Real Housewives news, we break down Tamra Judge’s return to RHOC, address rumors that the whole cast has united against Shannon and analyze whether Tamra’s return can save this seemingly broken franchise. Heading east, we shed light onto the truth behind those constant rumors that Ramona Singer will not be part of the RHONY Legacy show, Melissa Gorga’s involvement in perpetrating those rumors, and reveal the timeline of when we can realistically expect any legacy announcement. Two words - not soon!Lindsay and Carl get engaged, Scheana gets married, Schwartzy and Raquel kiss, Katie Maloney blames Scheana, Jax, Brittany and Kristen get dissed and much to our chagrin, all of this is being filmed for the upcoming seasons of Summer House and Vanderpump Rules respectively! @thesarahfrasershow @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BROUGHT TO YOU BY: FREEDOMGROOMING - www.freedomgrooming.com/VELVET (20% Off Now) TALKSPACE - www.talkspace.com ($100 Off Your First Month.

3436
The RHOBH Universe has a one track mind these days and it is to find out who was behind the social media attack on Garcelle’s Son Jax. Several names have been thrown around - Lisa Rinna, Diana Jenkins, Erika Jayne, RHOBH Producers and Patrick Somers. We break down the likelihood that any of the aforementioned had anything to do with that and what is the possibility bots were actually involved. Once that dust settles, and after we deep dive to the n-th degree from every angle, we break down what is next and what this means for their Bev Hills’ future and how likely is it that Lisa Rinna, Diana Jenkins and anyone and everyone else will not return for next season to hold a diamond.  @thesarahfrasershow @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BROUGHT TO YOU BY: FREEDOMGROOMING - www.freedomgrooming.com/VELVET (20% Off Now) TALKSPACE - www.talkspace.com ($100 Off Your First Month.

Alexis Bellino - (on RHOC Past/Current/Future, Whether She Would Really Ever Return & "Jesus Jugs")
4543
Alexis “Jesus Jugs” Bellino steps Behind The Rope. Today we share this never before released gem from the vault. Alexis takes us back to the beginning of her Real Housewives of Orange County journey, when then husband Jim brought her to the Season One Premiere Party and she met the then cast Vicki Gunvalson, Jo De La Rosa, Jeana Keough, Lauri Peterson and Kimberly Bryant. Fast forward several years, and Alexis was cast as a main RHOC cast member Season Five. The rest is history. Not so fast. Alexis opens up about how much life changed from when we saw her on RHOC as a married woman to Jim Bellino to her current life with love Andy Bohn. Alexis chats about the reasons for the demise of her marriage, the role, or lack thereof RHOC played in this demise, what it is like to now watch these scenes back all these years later, and what is was like to have the general public weigh in on your marriage. Alexis also chats about her time on the hit Bravo show and cast mates Tamra Judge, Heather Dubrow, Gretchen Rossi, and Vicki Gunvalson - who was the hardest to work with and the status of each of these relationships today. Alexis also discusses her Christian Faith and how that played out on the show. Yes, for all those wondering, we do discuss Alexis’ moniker “Jesus Jugs” as bestowed upon her all those years ago by Tamra Judge. Speaking of Tamra, we DO bring up the Jim Bellino law suit against her and Shannon Storms Beador. Alexis also weighs in on the current cast and we finally answer why or why not she would really ever go back despite all the rumors out there.  @alexis_bellino @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BROUGHT TO YOU BY: FREEDOMGROOMING - www.freedomgrooming.com/VELVET (20% Off Now) TALKSPACE - www.talkspace.com ($100 Off Your First Month.

Chaz Dean steps Behind The Rope. Checking in from the Hollywood Hills home he shares with his three Labradors, Chaz is here to tell it all. First things first, Chaz fills us in on his journey from his early days of working at a LA Salon to eventually purchasing that salon, developing WEN hair care products, taking over QVC and, of course, those infamous WEN infomercials - think Alyssa Milano and Brooke Shields - that we all love so much. Speaking of celebrities such as Brooke and Alyssa, his very first well known client was Nicolette Sheridan and from there things just took off. She told a friend who told a friend and soon he was doing hair for much of the Aaron Spelling Empire. That empire included such Superstars as 90210’s very own Shannen Doherty, Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth. As their stylist, Chaz heard and knew it all! The things he could, and does, tell! Let us not forget there was a time way back when where Shannen, Tori and Jennie didn’t exactly all see eye to eye. Our very own RHOBH Lisa Rinna was also a client and is a current friend. What happened when Nicolette Sheridan walked into his Salon one day while Rinna was in his chair? Umm, yea, exactly what you are thinking. Not well. There was also that one time he had to run to Casa Rinna for a Delilah Belle Hamlin hair emergency. Chaz has stories for days and we are LIVING for it. Chaz is also close with Lisa Vanderpump. Wait, how does that work also being friends with Rinna? Are you starting to see a trend? Tune in to hear it all - Chaz Dean, the man behind the WEN empire, chats about business, hair and what we love best, Celebrity on this Part I sit down of our interview with Chaz Dean.  @chazdean @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: DAME - www.dameproducts.com (Enter Code VELVETROPE For 15% Off Your Order) TALKSPACE - www.talkspace.com ($100 Off Your First Month.

RHOBH Cast & Bravo Rallies Around Garcelle, RHONY 2.0 & OG Casting Rumors, RHOC Begins Filming Amidst Tamra Drama & Scheana Marries
4767
Garcelle Beauvais’ son was the subject of online troll attacks. We break down those attacks, the RHOBH casts’ reaction, Bravo’s reaction, the fans reaction and why many think Diana Jenkins is behind it all. In other RHOBH news, LVP has come out swinging against Mellenball who made derogatory comments about her brother, Kelly Dodd calls Mauricio and PK gross and RHOBH casting rumors continue to swirl with Diana, Crystal, Dorit and Rinna all rumored to have been considered to be on the chopping block. We dispel many of those rumors, who may be coming back and then chat RHONY 2.0 and OG casting. So many rumors, so little time. What is not a rumor is that our very own Scheana Shay tied the knot and Schwartzy and Raquel Leviss were said to be getting cozy. Filming for the OC has begun and not all of her cast mates are happy with the return of one Miss Tamra Judge. Nothing shocking there. Finally, Nene Leakes’ lawsuit against Andy Cohen was dismissed without prejudice. We break down what that means and what happens now for all parties involved.  @thesarahfrasershow @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: DAME - www.dameproducts.com (Enter Code VELVETROPE For 15% Off Your Order) TALKSPACE - www.talkspace.com ($100 Off Your First Month.

As RHOBH casting rumors for next season swirl, we break down the likelihood that the rumored Diana, Rinna and Crystal will be let go. We share our thoughts on that and offer up some likely other options of who will most likely be on the chopping block next season. As these casting rumors circulate, Denise Richards weighs in announcing she would return to RHOBH in the future. It certainly would be a good weekly reminder that her Only Fans is alive and well, not that she needs any help in that category and she would certainly be coming for Rinna. Hello Bravo. Are you listening? Ariana Biermann was arrested for DUI and her and Kim Zolciak have come out swinging. What do they say about there being two sides to every story? Kelly Dodd calls Melissa Gorga a loser, Cynthia Bailey says Tre is warmer than Mel, and we ask does anyone still care about the fact that Tre and Mel will never, should we say it louder for those in back, never get along. Finally, we address those recent RHONY 2.0 reboot casting rumors and weigh in regarding our friend Orfeh who was named as one of the new six apple holders. Of course, we called and texted Ms. Orfeh to get to the bottom of all these rumors of who really is being cast in the new RHONY and break down when we will most likely hear the definitive cast so that we can all sleep a little better at night.  @thesarahfrasershow @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: TALKSPACE - www.talkspace.com ($100 Off Your First Month.

With all that seems to be changing by the day with Erika Jayne and Jen Shah’s legal woes, we felt it was time to slow down and deep dive both. Erika got served at LAX and the claims behind the 50M Dollar Racketeering Lawsuit are shocking to say the least. Jen Shah plead guilty in her criminal fraud case and is now waiting to be sentenced. We discuss both, the current state of both cases, and what happens next in both cases. In other news, Below Deck’s Rachel Hargrove slams Southern Charm’s Austen Kroll in a feud we did not ever see coming or think we needed. Margaret and Tre have a newfound BFF-ship, Tre’s wedding approaches and RHOM’s Nicole Martin sells what Andy Cohen calls the nicest house to ever appear on Bravo on any show including all of the Million Dollar Listings. @thesarahfrasershow @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef  BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: TALKSPACE - www.talkspace.com ($100 Off Your First Month.

Carlos King (on RHOA, RHOBH, Teresa, Bethenny, Rinna, Kyle, Two RHONY's & The Future of Housewives!)
3051
Carlos King steps back Behind The Rope. Picking right up from where we left off last time, Carlos chats current seasons of RHOA (Marlo’s Peach, the return of Shereé, Kenya supposedly passing the villain baton) & RHONJ (just wrapped filming), where each of those franchises have been and where they are going. We break down Carlos’ Infamous Top Ten Housewives List - Nene, Teresa and Bethenny in the top three seats, an underrated Danielle Staub making the cut, the glaring lack of any RHOBH and why Kyle Richards is his Queen of the 90210. Carlos chats Teresa spin off rumors - in addition to her wedding special, why New Jersey cannot survive without Tre and why he prefers an OG cast for any franchise any day. Speaking of an OG cast, Carlos breaks down what having two RHONY’s really means, how to properly cast the RHONY reboot, which OG’s he thinks deserve a seat at the OG table, why Bethenny Frankel secretly does want to be a part of the franchise and why no one should count Eboni K. Williams out just yet. The best producer in the history of Reality TV is here to mention it all.  @thecarlosking_ @behindveletrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: RELIEFBAND - www.reliefband.com (20% off Plus Free Shipping.

ANNE HECHE (on an Iconic Career and Life Well Lived) - A Tribute Interview
4122
I had the pleasure of interviewing Anne Heche earlier this year. I, and everyone at the Behind The Velvet Rope Podcast, are deeply saddened to hear of her passing last week. Besides a career in Hollywood that most could only dream of, having started in some of the most iconic TV and Film of all time, she was an actress whose craft had been perfected to the nth degree. During this interview, she was so gracious with her time. She was kind, open, honest, forthright, a bright light and so very full of life. A trailblazer. I hope that by listening to this chat, you are able to get a glimpse into what a remarkable woman she was. Having spoken to her for just this hour, I sure did. We release this episode today as a tribute to the life of Anne Heche. Anne Heche steps Behind The Rope. Actress of Film, TV, Stage. Best Selling Author. Activist. Trailblazer. Director. Icon In The Flesh. Now Podcast Host. The ONE. The ONLY. Miss Anne Heche!! Anne is here to cover it all and have one of the most open, honest, raw conversations The Rope has ever had! Anne chats about her Iconic Career from its beginnings on Another World to starting in more movies and TV shows than we could ever list - Donnie Brasco, Six Days, Seven Nights, Ally McBeal, Nip/Tuck, Wag the Dog, to name a few. Anne chats about her favorite roles, the ones she wants to forget, her favorite co-stars, who she would still love to work with, and why this brilliant accomplished actress still has to audition for parts. Anne opens up about what it was like to be the original one Cancelled before Cancel Culture was a thing as a result of her bringing Ellen DeGeneres to a movie premiere as her date and Ellen’s coming out of “Yup, I’m Gay” at a time when the world wasn’t 2022. Anne talks about those ten long years when no one in Hollywood would cast her, her public fallout with Ellen, what it’s like being “tied” to Ellen in the public eye all these years later, how The Ellen Show complicated her search for work even further and what she thinks, in a full circle moment, about Ellen’s now Cancellation after being deemed The Queen of Mean. Anne talks about her star turn on Dancing With The Stars, her love of Reality TV - her Best of List is music to our ears - and whether and why she would ever join or not join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!! Of course, we chat with Anne about her book “Call Me Crazy”, the biggest misperceptions about her regarding the subject, and whether an open and honest discussion about mental health can be had stigma free in the world we live in today. Anne Heche in a hold nothing back chat like you have never heard her before.  @anneheche @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: ORA ORGANIC - www.ora.organic (Get 30% Off Your First Subscription When You text ROPE to 64-000) DAME - www.dameproducts.com (Enter Code VELVETROPE For 15% Off Your Order) TALKSPACE - www.talkspace.com ($100 Off Your First Month.

Kathryn Dennis steps Behind The Rope. Southern Charm’s Kathryn Dennis that is. Kathryn is here to chat about the highs and lows, the good and bad of her entire time on Southern Charm, both on and off screen, over the past many years. Kathryn discusses the challenges of “putting it all” out there, no matter how personal, for the world to see, and consequently judge. Kathryn chats about how she has learned to cope with the public having an opinion about everything that she does in her life and what advice she would give to her twenty one year old self, before her many breakups, and two children, Season One Southern Charm, just starting out. Kathryn chats about the many ups and downs of some of her friendships with the men of SC - Craig, Austen & Shep, the women - Madison, Leva, & Naomie and who out of casts past she would most like and least like to have back - Cameran, Landon, Chelsea. Of course, with various cast members linked to A-Rod, Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler in the past, we needed all the gossip and to deep dive on what Kathryn really knows. Kathryn Dennis in a rare sit down like you have never heard her before. @kathryndennis @behindvrelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: RELIEFBAND - www.reliefband.com (20% off Plus Free Shipping.

TAYLOR ARMSTRONG (on RHOBH, Russell, The Domestic Abuse, Lisa Vanderpump & OG Cast!) - II
3040
Taylor Armstrong steps back Behind The Rope. Who can believe its been eleven years since Taylor first appeared on the freshman season of the currently highest rated Housewives franchise, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Feeling nostalgic, Taylor takes a trip down memory lane during her tenure on RHOBH with castmates Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle and Kim Richards, Adrienne Maloof and Camille Donatacci Grammer (now Meyer). The ORIGINAL Dinner Party from hell - Allison DuBois, Faye Resnick & one epic e cigarette pen, what could go wrong?, a $50,000 Birthday soirée for a four year old, one epic stretch limo fight between two sisters that ended with the “a” word being thrown around and early accusations of LVP leaking stories to the press before that was “a thing”, we cover it all. On a more serious note, we chat with Taylor about the domestic abuse she endured from her husband at the time, Russel Armstrong, through most of her marriage and while filming RHOBH. We dive deep into topics such as why join RHOBH with this hidden secret, the difficulties of filming trying to hide this from the cast, how did she convince Russel to “let” her join RHOBH, did the show make the abuse worse, who from diamond holders did she confide in, and finally, did RHOBH, in effect, save her life? Taylor opens up about the full range of emotions expressed after she found then husband Russel Armstrong hanging in his LA home and resulting legal battles she faced as result of inheriting his several million dollar debt. Taylor reflects on how lucky she is to be here today, a gift she has shared in her aptly titled “Hiding From Reality” book and now shares in public speaking engagements across the county in the hopes of helping others suffering from domestic violence. On a lighter note, Taylor became part of a viral cat meme a few years back, you know the one, which we dissect. Of course we chat about the storyline and casting high points and mistakes of RHOBH throughout the years, whether the current cast is “right” or needs to be changed, the presence of actresses as Housewives, the realness of the show present day, Erika Jayne’s current legal woes, and much more. ***If you or a loved one are a victim of domestic violence, contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 for confidential assistance from trained advocates. @officialtaylorarmstrong @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: TALKSPACE - www.talkspace.com ($100 Off Your First Month.

Kelly Dodd had some choice words for us and our Podcast following a recent two part chat we conducted with RHOC’s Braunwyn Windham Burke. Today we share those choice words and our response to Miss Dodd. All this KD talks makes us wonder, might we be seeing Kelly Dodd on a Girl’s Trip soon or are certain Housewives like the rumored Danielle Staub, Carole Radziwill and, we assume now forever, Nene Leakes, persona non grata at the network. Speaking of Girls Trip, we check in on our fav Season Three Thailand Housewives and chat Candiace Dillard’s recently announced tour. Finally, Lisa Rinna does not think Lois got a proper RHOBH tribute and rumors surface that RHOD may be back all because D’Andra was overheard in a NYC airport talking about Bravo execs.

TAYLOR ARMSTRONG (on RHOBH, Russell, The Domestic Abuse, Lisa Vanderpump & OG Cast!) - I
2959
In a very rare Podcast appearance, Taylor Armstrong steps Behind The Rope. Who can believe it’s been eleven years since Taylor first appeared on the freshman season of the currently highest rated Housewives franchise, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Feeling nostalgic, Taylor takes a trip down memory lane during her tenure on RHOBH with cast mates Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle and Kim Richards, Adrienne Maloof and Camille Donatacci Grammer (now Meyer). The ORIGINAL Dinner Party from hell - Allison DuBois, Faye Resnick & one epic e cigarette pen, what could go wrong?, a $50,000 Birthday soirée for a four year old, one epic stretch limo fight between two sisters that ended with the “a” word being thrown around and early accusations of LVP leaking stories to the press before that was “a thing”, we cover it all. On a more serious note, we chat with Taylor about the domestic abuse she endured from her husband at the time, Russel Armstrong, through most of her marriage and while filming RHOBH. We dive deep into topics such as why join RHOBH with this hidden secret, the difficulties of filming trying to hide this from the cast, how did she convince Russel to “let” her join RHOBH, did the show make the abuse worse, who from diamond holders did she confide in, and finally, did RHOBH, in effect, save her life? Taylor opens up about the full range of emotions expressed after she found then husband Russel Armstrong hanging in his LA home and resulting legal battles she faced as result of inheriting his several million dollar debt. Taylor reflects on how lucky she is to be here today. On a lighter note, Taylor became part of a viral cat meme a few years back, you know the one, which we dissect. Of course we chat about the storyline and casting high points and mistakes of RHOBH throughout the years, whether the current cast is “right” or needs to be changed, the presence of actresses as Housewives, the realness of the show present day, Erika Jayne’s current legal woes, her recent WWHL appearance, her daughter Kennedy who is now 15, would she would ever return to RHOBH and, if so, what type of Housewife would she be now that she is happily married and not suffering at the hand of domestic abuse. ***If you or a loved one are a victim of domestic violence, contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 for confidential assistance from trained advocates. @officialtaylorarmstrong @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: TALKSPACE - www.talkspace.com ($100 Off Your First Month.

CLAUDIA JORDAN (on Celebrity Apprentice, Lisa Rinna, "The Donald", Omarosa and Much More!) - Part I
3743
Claudia Jordan steps Behind The Rope and she DOES - NOT - HOLD - BACK! THE Claudia Jordan from The Real Housewives of Atlanta. First things first, let’s not forget Claudia’s entire career before joining the highest rated of all the Housewives' franchises, RHOA. Claudia placed in the Top Ten in the Miss USA Competition. She was also once a “Price Is Right” and “Deal or No Deal" Girl. It was “Deal or No Deal” where she first met our current President, Mr. Trump. It was on “Deal or No Deal” that she was first approached to do Celebrity Apprentice. A year, and many meetings with Donald Trump and Mark Burnett, later, she found herself a contestant on the hit NBC show. Claudia shares all the drama both on, as well as off set with not only The Trumps Donald, Ivanka, Don. Jr and Eric, but also with fellow contestants Joan and Melissa Rivers, Dennis Rodman, and last, but certainly not least, Khloe Kardashian. Several years later, Claudia was invited back for Celebrity Apprentice “All Stars” and is happy to discuss her co-stars this second time around, LaToya Jackson, Omarosa (the two have since had a falling out. Do tell. Claudia does), and our favorite RHOBH pot stirrer, Lisa Rinna. We discuss the behind the scenes inner workings of a reality show like Celebrity Apprentice, what is real versus scripted for TV, how Trump really chose who to “fire”, how hard were the tasks, and what skills were vital to survive the boardroom. Finally, Claudia, recounts her many many inappropriate interactions with President Trump throughout the years and how she reacted when she was invited for a “ride" on his private jet. Tune in for Part I of this no holds bar sit down with the one and only, Miss Claudia Jordan. @claudiajordan @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: RELIEFBAND - www.reliefband.com (20% off Plus Free Shipping.

Erika Jayne's $2.2M Tax Bill, Denise Richards & Daughter Join Only Fans, Vicki Gunvalson's New Man & Tamra's Housewives' Future!
3589
Erika Jayne seems to have quite a bit going on lately. With a $2.2 Million Dollar Tax Bill, claims she cannot pay, earnings being possessed and a glam squad as seen on RHOBH, we figured it was time for another deep dive on EJ and to dissect what really went down between Mr. and Mrs. Girardi. In other RHOBH news, Denise and Charlie' daughter joins Only Fans to mixed emotions within the Sheen household to which Denise follows suit. If only Denise were still a Diamond Holder and cameras were rolling. Diana Jenkins knows the Kardashians and, well, seems to have a lot else going on as well. In other West Coast Housewives news, Vicki Gunvalson has a new man who we hope is filling her love tank, Tamra seems to be in the thick of it with Miss Dubrow and Andy Cohen claims she cannot return to RHOC all because she now talks about Housewives for a living. All this and we are only getting started. @thesarahfrasershow @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: TALKSPACE - www.talkspace.com ($100 Off Your First Month.

Of course, we also dive deep into RHOBH, Lisa Rinna and Real Housewives. We also discuss the new E Network Fashion / Beauty show he has in the works with the one and only NeNe Leakes. Brad also dishes on which Awards Show, he has done them all, is his favorite. He explains what the current state of Fashion is and how he thinks it will be forever changed. Finally, we catch up with Brad on all that he and husband Gary Janetti have been up to over the past few months and what else is next up for the power couple.

Janice Dickinson (on Top Model, Tyra, Kendall, Gigi, Lisa Rinna, RHOBH, The Kardashians & Being The World First Supermodel) - II
3582
Janice Dickinson steps Behind The Rope. Let me repeat that. Janice Dickinson. Icon. Living Legend in the Flesh. The World’s First Supermodel. The Simon Cowell of America’s Next Top Model. Reality TV veteran from before reality TV was reality TV a la Oxygen’s “The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency”. In true Janice fashion, she - DOES - NOT - HOLD - BACK! Of course, we begin with a chat about Janice’s early career where we talk about her then Supermodel colleagues Cindy Crawford, Elle Macpherson, Linda Evangelista, Kate Moss and last, but certainly not least, Tyra Banks and the many men in her life for a moment, a moment plus, or what could have been a moment, Mick Jagger, Sylvester Stallone, Simon Le Bon. Speaking of Tyra Banks, Janice was front and center for the first many cycles of the juggernaut hit “America's Next Top Model” as the most outspoken judge. Notoriously anti-plus size model, Janice has never shied away from controversy or speaking her mind. Janice opens up about how she clashed with Tyra, discusses Tyra’s notoriously bad on set behavior and is kind enough, we asked, ok begged, to reveal secrets from behind the scenes of filming. As often happens here Behind The Rope, all roads lead to Housewives or, in this case, Housewives offspring and Kardashians. Janice shares her opinions on the current modeling industry and models like Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Delilah Belle Hamlin, Bella Hadid, Amelia Gray Hamlin, Hailey Baldwin and Kaia Gerber - how do they compare to the Icons of yesteryear and have they earned, or instead bought, their way in with money and / or a famous last name. We also address the current “influencer”, for lack of a better word, culture and how anyone with abs and a great pair of t*ts can be insta-famous. While we had Janice, and lucky we are to have been graced by the presence of royalty, we had to ask about her current relationship with Tyra and if she feels differently all these years later. We also pay homage to all, and we mean all, those other Reality TV shows she has been a part of: Botched!, Celebrity Big Brother, I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!, Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew and The Surreal Life.  @janicedickinson @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: ALLBIRDS - www.allbirds.com (Get Running Today with the Tree Flyer or Any Other Allbirds Products) RADIX REMEDIES - www.radixremedies.com (15% off Plus Free Shipping On Orders Over $35.

Lisa Rinna has certainly been keeping us entertained both on and off air this RHOBH season. Rinna’s feuding with Kathy Hilton, responding to unknown own cell phone numbers and fending off Kelly Dodd’s claims that Harry Hamlin is gay. That is just the beginning. In other 90210 news, Kyle calls out LVP, LVP has receipts and we ponder, would Miss Vanderpump ever return to the show if Kyle resigns, as she claims she may be ready for. In other news, Stassi and Beau are mad, mad, mad Brittany and Jax did not attend their Italian wedding and seems they have texts to prove all sorts of things about their ex(?) BFFS? Meanwhile on the east coast, Caroline Manzo wants to return to RHONJ to put Tre in her place and Gizelle Bryant seems to have a new mystery man? Might we see him on the new season of RHOP?

3839
Eva Marcille steps Behind The Rope. Where do we begin with the woman who has done it all? Eva first came to the world’s attention when she won the third cycle of America’s Next Top Model in 2004. Eva opens up about that experience, addressing the many people who are constantly bashing Tyra, chatting about her experience with Tyra while appearing on ANTM, explaining the status of that Tyra friendship today and discussing Janice Dickinson’s recent comment a few months back about her nose. Eva takes us on the journey of how life changed as a result of winning Top Model and what the show did for her modeling career after. One door that opened as a result of ANTM, was the wonderful world of acting. Eva discusses the many parts she played including that of “Tyra” on The Young and The Restless as well as appearing in JLO’s “Live It Up” video. All roads lead back to Reality TV here Behind The Rope and in a full circle moment, Eva found herself back on Reality TV, this time as an initial “Friend Of” and then Peach Holder on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. She chats about the evolution of her friendship with Nene - whose friend she was when she started with RHOA, some of her other epic up and down relationships - Porsha and Kenya we are looking at you, her cameos this past just finished season - who could resist an invitation to the Bailey-Hill wedding and the controversy surrounding throwing a star studded 250 person in the height of a global pandemic, her opinions on Nene’s “departure” and answers whether she misses the hit Bravo show and if she will ever go back. Eva also chats Tyler Perry’s “All The Queen’s Men” in which she plays lead, Madame Marilyn Deville, the owner of a high class club featuring male exotic dancers. Eve chats about how she got the part, how she researched for the part, what working with Tyler Perry was like, and what she learned about the male exotic dancer industry. Of course, we also wanted to chat all about one of her co-stars, Michael “Bolo” Bolwaire, known to us RHOA fanatics simply as Bolo, the dancer with the, #&#&, from Cynthia Bailey’s Party!!!! Model, Reality TV Star, Podcast Host, Radio Show Host, Actress.

Janice Dickinson (on Top Model, Tyra, Kendall, Gigi, Lisa Rinna, RHOBH, The Kardashians & Being The World First Supermodel)
3500
Janice Dickinson steps Behind The Rope. Let me repeat that. Janice Dickinson. Icon. Living Legend in the Flesh. The World’s First Supermodel. The Simon Cowell of America’s Next Top Model. Reality TV veteran from before reality TV was reality TV a la Oxygen’s “The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency”. In true Janice fashion, she - DOES - NOT - HOLD - BACK! Of course, we begin with a chat about Janice’s early career where we talk about her then Supermodel colleagues Cindy Crawford, Elle Macpherson, Linda Evangelista, Kate Moss and last, but certainly not least, Tyra Banks and the many men in her life for a moment, a moment plus, or what could have been a moment, Mick Jagger, Sylvester Stallone, Simon Le Bon. Speaking of Tyra Banks, Janice was front and center for the first many cycles of the juggernaut hit “America's Next Top Model” as the most outspoken judge. Notoriously anti-plus size model, Janice has never shied away from controversy or speaking her mind. Janice opens up about how she clashed with Tyra, discusses Tyra’s notoriously bad on set behavior and is kind enough, we asked, ok begged, to reveal secrets from behind the scenes of filming. As often happens here Behind The Rope, all roads lead to Housewives or, in this case, Housewives offspring and Kardashians. Janice shares her opinions on the current modeling industry and models like Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Delilah Belle Hamlin, Bella Hadid, Amelia Gray Hamlin, Hailey Baldwin and Kaia Gerber - how do they compare to the Icons of yesteryear and have they earned, or instead bought, their way in with money and / or a famous last name. We also address the current “influencer”, for lack of a better word, culture and how anyone with abs and a great pair of t*ts can be insta-famous. While we had Janice, and lucky we are to have been graced by the presence of royalty, we had to ask about her current relationship with Tyra and if she feels differently all these years later. We also pay homage to all, and we mean all, those other Reality TV shows she has been a part of: Botched!, Celebrity Big Brother, I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!, Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew and The Surreal Life.  @janicedickinson @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: CALM - www.calm.com/velvetrope (40% off unlimited access to Calm’s entire library.)

Say whaat? Of course, we talk about his new role in Netflix’s “The Lincoln Lawyer” and working with Alyssa Milano on that other brilliant Netflix show, “Insatiable” - gone, but never forgotten. Finally, we talk about just why Christopher always seems to be cast in roles that require him to be shirtless. Like we said, we mention it all! @chrisgorham @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: OUAI - www.theouai.com (15% Off Your Entire Purchase.

5060
What a Bravo week it has been? The RHONJ reunion has come and is almost gone, Jackie has been “demoted” as y’all like to say, Tre is still mad mad mad and we have three new women who will be filming next season, Danielle Cabral, Rachel Fuda and Jenn Fessler. Of course, we need to clarify just who is friends with who, the definition of the word “friend” - are we being shady, and the actual likelihood that any of them will actually end up on The Real Housewives of New Jersey when it returns for its thirteenth season. Speaking of RHONJ, we break down the viral Danielle Staub parking lot video. If you have not watched it or heard of it, listen up closely as it is pure actual iconic gold in the form of one pissed AF Miss Staub, the way we have grown to love her over the years. In other news, we chat the real reason why Nene Leakes did not name Kim Zolciak Biermann in her lawsuit against Bravo and Andy, the insane Ramona Singer Summer House rumors starring an all grown up Avery Singer and the return of RHOA, Marlo’s peach and all.  @thesarahfrasershow @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: OUAI - www.theouai.com (15% Off Your Entire Purchase.

Bravo's Love Match Atlanta Cast (on Season Drama, Dating Advice for Kenya Moore / Marlo Hampton, NeNe Leakes' New Man, & Patti Stanger)
5333
Bravo’s Newest Show, "Love Match Atlanta", has finally arrived. Today we welcome Shae Primus, Ming Clark and Joseph Dixon Behind the Rope. This trio is here to break it all down as far as to what we can expect this season on Love Match Atlanta. This is Bravo after all so there is no shortage of drama and the Love Doctors mention it all! While we have three experts, we had to ask relationship advice like do’s and don’ts, drinking and fooling around on a first date, money and status, celebs most requested and all the mistakes their clients commonly make which get them fired from the matchmaking club. Being local ATL residents, we had to chat our fav Peach Holders - this current RHOA season and what they would recommend for our single friends such as Miss Kenya Moore and Miss Marlo Hampton and thoughts on NeNe Leakes’ new beau! Finally, we could not help but ask what advice, if any, they sought from Bravo’s original matchmaker Patti Stanger regarding starring in their very own love show and what are their true thoughts on their west coast predecessor. In true Bravo fashion, these three do not hold back. @shaeprimusmatchmaker @mingthematchmaker @josephcdixon @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: OUAI - www.theouai.com (15% Off Your Entire Purchase.

Suzanne Sommers!!!! Hard to imagine it has been almost forty five years since Suzanne first played Chrissy Snow on Three’s Company, a show which is still as beloved today by the current gen as when it first premiered. A man pretending to be gay to live with two women in order to share the rent, Jack Tripper, Three’s Company was ahead of its time in even mentioning “gay” on a Prime Time ABC show and showing a straight man comfortable enough in his sexuality to show his “nontraditional” sensitive side making “gay” ok. Suzanne, a trailblazer, left her iconic Chrissy Snow role after five seasons demanding the equal pay of her male colleagues, a topic at the forefront of discussion in Hollywood over the past few years. Switching gears, there is no mention of Suzanne Sommers without thinking of the Iconic Thighmaster and vice versa. Back on ABC many years later as part of the Iconic TGIF lineup, Suzanne found herself opposite Dallas’ Patrick Duffy in the brilliant “Step by Step”. We had to pick Suzanne’s brain on her last book, “A New Way to Age” considering she is Seventy Four years young and is aging backward before our very eyes - no really check out our IG for pics. Although she is busy running her lifestyle empire, we had to ask if she would ever act again and who she would love to star alongside. We chat famous friends, Kardashians, RHOBH, DWTS & more. Finally, we discuss her recent statements of her “three times a day” sex life with husband and life partner, Alan Hamel.

Kelly Rutherford steps Behind The Rope. Yes, Kelly Rutherford. Kelly is here to chat about her epic career that has led to parts in two of the most iconic shows in TV history, Melrose Place and Gossip Girl. Kelly chats about playing Megan Lewis in Melrose Place - how she was cast, fav / least fav storylines, behind the scenes stories, working with Lisa Rinna, Heather Locklear, Alyssa Milano, Marcia Cross, and Darren Star, to name a few. Kelly also chats about playing Lily van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl - the hype surrounding GG which made household names out of all its stars, the epic love story of Lily and Rufus, the mystery surrounding Gossip Girl’s identity, UES NYC, working with Blake Lively, set visits by Ryan Reynolds, and guest appearances by one Tinsley Mortimer as well as Cyndi Lauper. Speaking of Real Housewives, we discuss RHOBH with Kelly - her former Melrose co-star Lisa Rinna’s transformation from playing Taylor McBride to, well, playing Lisa Rinna as well as if she would ever join RHONY as we hear they are casting.

Bobby Boyd on (Josh Flagg, MDLA, Bravo, & More!!)
4869
There has been so much written in the past week about Bobby Boyd and Josh Flagg’s Breakup. Apparently, Josh has a new boyfriend, Bobby’s name is on the title to Josh’s new $9M house and much more. Are there any signs in this chat we had with Bobby just a few mere months ago. There is a reference to separate beds. As you listen, can you spot any foreshadowing? Million Dollar Listing’s Bobby Boyd steps Behind The Rope. Mr. Josh Flagg. However, there is much more to Bobby Boyd than his husband. Coming from humble beginnings, Bobby became a male model at the young age of 14 in order to help pay for college. Even though Bobby had early success as a fashion model woking for major designers such as Versace and Calvin Klein, he set his sights on something else when he arrived in Los Angeles, Real Estate. Having a keen eye for style, architecture, design and a “personable” rather than “transactional” approach, Bobby’s first home sale was that of a $6.5 million dollar property, not bad, and a new career was born. Bobby then met a man who shared his interests and profession who happened to, not only be one of LA’s top real estate agents, but also one of the long standing members of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles. Bobby chats about meeting Josh, their instant chemistry and connection, his position working with Josh at Rodeo Realty, a flash mob proposal in Paris and wedding at The Beverly Hills Hotel, both of which were filmed by Bravo. Bobby chats about that, Josh’s sometime over the top extravagant style, and what working with his spouse every day is like. When not busy with MDL-LA, Bobby can be seen on his very own Lifestyle You Tube Channel, “Bobby Boyd Living” or selling his brand new aprons which are stylish, edgy and fun (no really check out his on line store). Finally, Bobby also discusses MDLLA - how does his style differ from Josh’s, the Brtits, Altman, Tracy Tutor and Fredrik Eklund, the conflicts, those over the top open houses, celeb clients and last, but not least, when we can expect and what we can expect from the upcoming MDLLA Season Thirteen.  @bboydla @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Brought To You By: WOOGA (“JUNE”S JOURNEY) - (Download “June’s Journey” Free Today on the Apple App Store or Google Play) OUAI - www.theouai.com (15% Off Your Entire Purchase.

Introducing - WeCrashed: The Director's Cut
752
The founders of WeWork thought they were on the brink of making history. The company was valued at $47 billion dollars, ready for a huge IPO, and its charismatic CEO Adam Neumann believed he was going to change the world. Adam and his wife Rebekah had a prophet-like vision—but did it ever match the company's reality? Now the inspiration for a new AppleTV+ series starring Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway, WeCrashed: The Director’s Cut is a complete refresh of our original six-part series. Hosted by David Brown of the hit podcast Business Wars, this six-part series includes new interviews and new discoveries about the rise and fall of WeWork. It’s a story of hope and hubris, big money and bigger screwups, and the lengths people will go to chase “unicorns”!

Candiace Dillard (on RHOP Past, Present & Future) - II
4622
With so much chatter about the new season of RHOP and a lot of internet fodder about one Candiace Dillard Basset’s future on the show, we felt it apropos to share our past chat with Miss Candiace Dillard. What are your thoughts? Would you like to see Candiace on RHOP next season? Candiace Dillard Bassett steps Behind The Rope. What a season she has just had on The Real Housewives of Potomac. Where to begin? We leave no stone left unturned in our discussion with Candiace regarding the physical altercation with Monique Samuels, which was THE central storyline seen this past season on RHOP. We go behind the cameras to discuss what was going through Candiace’s mind before, during and after the “hair drag” watched around the world. We discuss the emotions associated with the event, there are a wide range, and what the atmosphere was like on the set of RHOP for the rest of the season once this occurred. Candiace discusses the RHOP reunion, what we have already seen and can expect to see over the remaining weeks, and the closure she felt, once it was over, from the most drama filled season in the history of RHOP. Breaking the fourth wall, we discuss Bravo’s involvement, what, if anything, could have been done differently and what measures can or should be taken tp prevent something like this from happening again in the BravoVerse. As Candiace reflects back, we discuss how she feels now that she is on the other side of the season and what we can expect as the RHOP Reunion forges on. We also get a rare look into Candiace’s life growing up in the ATL, being a “Pageant Girl”, her current pursuit of her MBA at Howard University, and meeting Chris Bassett. Finally, being a fellow Pop Culture and TV junkie, (yes reality is included and yes she watched RHOP before being on it) Candiace reveals her love of all things Shonda Rhimes and bonds with David over Scandal, one of the best TV shows to ever exist. Kids, we are just getting started. After all, this is only Part I of our two part sit down with Candiace Dillard. @candeegal09 @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Brought To You By: ELYSIUM HEALTH - www.trybasis.com/VELVET (10% Off At Checkout.

Since so much has happened in the world of Big Cats and Tiger Kings since Ms. Baskin was here last, we did the only thing we could think of - call her back for more! Carole is here to chat about many of the real life events which have taken place since our last chat - Joe Exotic being re-sentenced for Murder for Hire which could potentially lead to shorter jail time, his announcement that he is accepting applications in jail for a boyfriend, his desire for this search for love to become Netflix’ new break out show, “Bachelor King” - no really, Google it, and Joe’s ex boyfriend Dillon Passage’s own announcement that he has found love in the form of his new seemingly age appropriate, Instagram official, boyfriend John.

Speaking of actresses to play Carole, the last time she was here she listed Meryl Streep as her top choice. We share an update on that - has she heard from Meryl and how did that conversation go? Finally, we all know Carole can dance a la Dancing With The Stars (yes, we chat Tyra!), but we get to know the most famous woman in all of Big Cat Rescue chatting about what she likes to do for fun, what is going on in the world of Big Cat Rescue today and just what is next for this fearless powerhouse that is unapologetically committed to her cause of Big Cat Rescue who won’t ever stop until all the cats are safe.

Kim D. (on This Weeks #RHONJ & Real Life Updates on Tre/Luis/Dolo & More!)
963
Kim D. is back for her weekly #RHONJ recap and she is, as usual, holding nothing back. Double standard much? Tre doesn’t want anyone to talk about Luis, anytime, anywhere, ever. Whops. Guilty as charged. Not that Tre needs to worry about it because even on her best day, Luis isn’t intimidated by Marge. Mel ain’t none too happy 'bout the fact that Tre stayed with Jennifer after it got physical - we always knew that JAydin had it in her - and Frank Catania reminds us that none of us want Patterson Dolo to come out. Seems we are still trying to make sense of the viral vid that shook the Garden State while Jackie tries to deal with real life issues that are actually important. Of course, as usual, Kim spent the week digging up some real life behind the scenes dirt for y’all - who says Jennifer Aydin is the only one good at that - which she shares here today. Obviously, it involves Luis and Tre because, you wouldn’t want Kim D. any other way. @kimdposche @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef Listen to Full Episode At: https://www.patreon.com/posts/63301660/edit Learn more about your ad choices.

Lisa Barlow (on RHOSLC Past, Present, Future!)
5288
What an epic Sophomore Season of RHOSLC this has been and an even more epic RHOSLC Reunion. With everyone buzzing about Lisa Barlow, we figured it was a great time to share this chat we had with Lisa just one year ago. Have things changed? The more things change, the more they stay the same? Thoughts? Lisa Barlow, hot off the RHOSL finale, steps Behind The Rope (with special guest appearance by John Barlow). The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’s Lisa Barlow and we could not be more excited to chat with her about this new stellar addition to the franchise. After a brief background on Lisa, where she grew up, how she ended up in Salt Lake, where she met husband John Barlow, and all things Vida Tequila (yes kids, we have a new Housewives’ product!), we get right into all the current drama on the freshman season of RHOSL. Lisa explains which franchises she watched prior to being cast on the show, how she originally got involved in the show, why Salt Lake is the perfect location for a Real Housewives show and what other Bravolebrities and Housewives she heard from now that the show has aired. Lisa dives deep on her many year friendship with fellow cast mate Meredith Marks and is happy to discuss all of her new “friends” Jen Shah, Mary Cosby, Heather Gay, and Whitney Rose. Lisa chats about who she thinks was authentically themselves during filming and was portrayed accurately now that the show has aired. She also chats about who loved the camera a little too much and brought the drama even when there was no drama needed to be brought. On that note, Lisa opens up about what what she thinks is the biggest misconception of herself, reflects back on some of the seasons already iconic moments and chats about what she plans, if anything, to do differently for Season Two. With our prodding, she addresses Vanderpump Rules Katie Maloney’s recent comments about her “Queen of Sundance” title that Jen Shah bestowed upon her. Thank you Lisa. Finally, we discuss the Vida Tequila event Bethenny Frankel attended back in the day and what she has to now say to the Skinnygirl Mogul. A true RHOSL extravaganza not to be missed. @lisabarlow14 @johnbarlow16 @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Brought To You By:  ELYSIUM HEALTH - www.trybasis.com/VELVET (10% Off At Checkout.

Yes, of course we chat spoilers and drama that Garcelle may have spilled from this upcoming season which is currently now filming! As part of her day job, Adrienne deep dives on current Hollywood topics and we could not help but to ask her opinion on many of these such as Britney & Jamie Lynn, Bennifer and last, but certainly not least, what she thinks about BFF Kim Kardashian’s new relationship with BF Pete Davidson and if she will be attending the upcoming nuptials of one Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker.

We break it all down - love triangles, looming weddings, on agains, off agains, new cast members, Andrea’s abs, Carl & Lindsey and much much more. In other news, we chat about the real life Potomac updates we have to share from our time in the DMV and the conflicting posts, texts, and rumors about whether Candiace Dillard Bassett will be returning next season to RHOP and who should actually go. Speaking of Potomac, we break the fourth wall to analyze how things have changed from the good ole days where filming starts right after a prior season’s end, such as current RHOBH and RHOSLC, and every other franchise which seems to be taking its sweet time to find the right mix of drama. Finally we chat about RHOSLC Jennie Nguyen’s exit and what actual metrics and standards Bravo seems to be using to determine who ends up “cancelled”.

Mackenzie Phillips (on One Day At A Time, Orange Is The New Black (OITNB), Addiction, Recovery & Valerie Bertinelli)!
5007
Mackenzie Phillips steps Behind The Rope. Icon, Trailblazer, Advocate. Mackenzie chats about how she broke into acting at age twelve on a little known movie “American Graffiti” which led to her breakout role as Julie Cooper on the classic hit TV show “One Day At a Time”. Mackenzie chats what life on set was like and what it was like to work with co-star Valerie Bertinelli. Of course, life on set was anything but perfect. Mackenzie opens up about her battle with drugs and alcohol during “One Day At a Time”, the loss of her job twice, and how she now looks back and remembers that time in her life. She chats about her career since, her road to sobriety, current friendship with Valerie Bertinelli which has survived Hollywood, recent roles in “Orange Is The New Black”, “Hot In Cleveland” and the reboot of “One Day At a Time”, and the many misconceptions about her public personal she has encountered over the years. Of course we also chat Mack's favorite Wilson Phillips Song (shout out to sister Chynna Phillips) and Van Halen (shout out to Val).

4229
We always say to first year Housewives, don’t change. As y’all listen to this chat from one year ago with Whitney Rose, has she changed? Things certainly have changed in twelve short months. Before Mary Cosby was a thing of the past, before we even knew who Jennie Nguyen was, back when Meredith and Lisa were BFFs, we sat down with the one and only Whitney Rose.  Whitney Rose steps Behind The Rope. In preparation for tonight’s conclusion to an epic 3 part reunion, Whitney is here to break down this freshman season of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. After a brief discussion of Whitney’s life prior to the show - yea we wanted to know more about the woman behind what ya all have seen on TV over the past few months - we get right into it. Whitney is more than happy to discuss, and does not hold back in discussing, her close friendships, mere acquaintances and not so close friendships with cast mates Mary Cosby, Jen Shah, Meredith Marks, Lisa Barlow and Heather Gay. We will let you figure out which is which. We delve deep into all the seasons dramas discussing which were necessary and valid and which Whitney would never like to speak of again. Speaking of drama, we break down the reunion, part by part, analyzing whether any closure was achieved or rather fresh wounds were opened. Now that Season Two has been green lit, Whitney discusses what she predicts will transpire amongst her cast mates, what she would like to see change, and what she plans to do differently. Spoiler Alert, we here Behind The Rope have already heard tidbits from Season Two filming which we, of course, do our best to get Whitney to comment on. Hey, we are good like that.

4385
There was a recent rumor that RHONY was not coming back which was started based on a statement made on this Podcast. Today we address that statement, how it went viral, the truth behind it and what we, in fact, actually know about the future of RHONY - if filming is likely to occur, when that filming will likely take place, when the cast is expected to be announced, who will be back, which OGs from the past are likely to return and many many more of your burning daily questions will be answered. Turning to our sisters across the river, we break down the RHONJ, what we know about this current season as it plays out, the truth behind many of the on line rumors of affairs, newbie Traci Lynn Johnson (with hubby legend Tiki, straight men rejoice), disputes and, almost, table flips a la Tre and Marge. Finally, we break down some of the newest entries into the Bravo Pod world, “Give Them Lala” sans that other man who she does not want named as well as the aptly titled “On Display” but the one and only, Miss Melissa Gorga.  @thesarahfrasershow @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BROUGHT TO YOU BY: FITON - (Text ROPE to 64-000 to join and work out for FREE!)  DIPSEA - www.dipseastories.com/velvet (30 Day Free Trial) INDEED - www.indeed.com/VELVET ($75 Job Credit to Upgrade Your Job Post.

Tabatha Coffey steps Behind The Rope. She is back!! First, we cannot help but reminisce again about the Bravo days of yesteryear when Tabatha reigned supreme with her epic array of shows Tabatha’s Salon Takeover, Tabatha’s Takeover, Relative Success With Tabatha and, of course, the show that introduced us to this blond beauty, Shear Genius. We chat about the appeal Tabatha had to last on our TVs for so long, her signature tell it like it is / hold nothing back approach to hair and life, how Bravo has changed over the years to become the network it is today. With two seasons of RHUGT, we hypothesize which colleagues would be prime to join Tabatha in the non-housewives version of Girls Trip - Kathy Griffin, Rachel Zoe, Jeff Lewis, Patti Stanger, Jackie Warner - we are looking at you, discussing the pros and cons of each as a potential cast member. We also can’t help but throw around Paula Abdul’s name. After all, who can forget, Bravo’s “Hey Paula”. Tabatha weighs in on some of the current Bravo legal cases keeping us up at night - Erika Jayne & Jen Shah, discusses why someone would go on Reality TV if they had anything to potentially hide, and the allure and addiction of fame, one of the most powerful drugs. The last time Tab was here we asked if she would ever join RHONJ, seeing as she lives just across the river. We follow up on that chat with who she has heard from since we have put that out in the world. Andy Cohen we are talking about you. We also revisit Tabatha’s idea for an all gay Housewives - men and women, cancel culture and what the woman who everyone thinks is a B+tch does for fun when not running one of her many businesses. Of course, we couldn’t let her go without discussing hair, trends, fashions and whether a $10,000 Ponytail for the Met Gala was really necessary Kim Kardashian.

Kim D is back for another explosive RHONJ recap. As Kim says at the start of this chat, there is only one word that matters this week. G-I-A. We have watched her go from a child to a young woman and this week, Gia makes her official debut. Ok, she has been here all this time, but Gia, honey, you have our utmost attention! The convo quickly turns to Jennifer, her secret revealed, tears shed, what seems to be a “new” / actually old return of Miss Dolores (she was actually on her way to Kim’s house during this chat to “pick up some stuff” - we discuss), Jackie showing compassion, Margaret being Margaret and, oh yea, does anyone remember we technically have two “friends of” this season. Of course, in true Kim D. fashion she drops one hell of a bomb about Teresa and Luis’ WWHL appearance back stage during premiere night!

Kim D. (Breaks Down RHONJ Season Premiere & Real Life NJ Run Ins)!!
948
Y’all love our RHOBH chats with former RHOBH Kathryn Edwards so why not do the same with former RHONJ “Friend Of”, Kim D. Now that RHONJ is back in our lives, you know it is the only thing you want to talk about!! We break it all down sharing our deep thoughts about this past weeks Season Premiere “Smoke, Mirrors and Foggy Diamonds”. Tre is in love, love, love, Luis made a bizarre video, Jackie is cool, an episode would not be complete without a cameo from Big Frank, Jennifer gets a new nose, oversees, we learn new info about Bill Aydin, Margaret has a backbone and oh, so much more. Also, let us not forget Kim has real life ties to many of the current cast and even reveals how she herself was involved in the alleged Aydin infidelity. Whew, all this and we are only on episode one. In true Kim D. fashion, she does not hold back! @kimdposche @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef https://www.patreon.com/posts/62140121 Learn more about your ad choices.

Vicki Gunvalson (on RHOC Past, Present & Future)!
4213
We could not let this “revised” season of RHOC come and go without re-sharing one of our fav OC, heck, one of our fav chats ever with you, the one and only OG of the OC! The OG of the OC Miss Vicki Gunvalson steps Behind The Rope. First Vicki fills us all in on what she has been up to since we last saw her on our TV screens. For those of you who don’t know, she bought a house in Mexico, had a stellar Whoop It Up Podcast (which BTVR appeared on), has been running Coto Insurance, and has just been enjoying time with her family (Steve, Michael, Brianna, Ryan & The Boys). Vicki and David discuss the trajectory of being a Housewife - the beginning (so hopeful), the middle (save your $), the inevitable end (Cue The Five Stages of grief). We discuss the concept of resigning and quitting versus being fired and let go. Vicki lets us know what advice she would give, not only to Season One Vicki, but other Housewives starting out and what she has learned throughout the years during her tenure on the hit Bravo show. Speaking of the beginning, Vicki and David discuss how much the show has changed since the beginning - the salaries, the vacations, the women, the drama! We discuss the involvement of producers and editing throughout the years and the concept of “reality” as it exists, or lack thereof, in any reality TV show these days. Vicki opens up about her highs and lows during her fourteen years on the show. We discuss the evolution of her relationships that we saw play out on national TV - Don, Brooks, Steve. Vicki discusses her relationships with Kelly Dodd (where she thinks it all went wrong), Tamra Judge (going strong), Shannon Beador (can it be repaired?) as well as RHOC past Jeana Keough, Meghan King Edmonds, Heather Durbrow and Alexis (“Jesus Jugs”) Bellino. Vicki is honest about what she misses the most about Housewives and answers the age old question, would you ever go back? Finally, no sit down with The OG of the OC would be complete without a trip down memory lane regarding some of Vicki’s most iconic moments - the State of Oklahoma. Slade Smiley’s infamous comment and her plastic surgeries throughout the years, Lauri Peterson’s Ski Slope “multiple partners” and of course, last but certainly not least, just how many people can you fit into a family van? @vickigunvalson @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Brought To You By: NATIVE - www.nativedeo.com/velvet (20% Off Your First Order.

5418
Sally Jessy Raphael steps Behind The Rope. Icon in the Flesh. The first female host to have a syndicated daytime talk show. With her Iconic red glasses in tow, we chat with Sally about the full extent of her career. A career which began in radio and spanned several decades leaving a permanent mark and having created the landscape of daytime TV. Sally opens up about her best and worst guest, the topics she loved and did not love talking about, all of the celebrities she has interviewed, the cultural significance of being “the first" and just how much the industry has changed over the years. Speaking of being “the first”, we chat with Sally about some of the others she has paved the way for - Oprah (yes, we chat about the Meghan and Harry sit down), Ellen (yes, we chat about her mean girl reputation and the loss of 1 million viewers as a “supposed” result), Wendy Williams (and all she is going through), Drew Barrymore (newbie) Kelly Clarkson (is it an easy transition for actors and singers?), and last but certainly not least, Miss Bethenny Frankel (well, that was short lived.). Of course, we chat with Sally about The View - all the rumored back stage infighting, “Ladies Who Punch”, Barbara Walters, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Kelly & Ryan. Since we have an Icon in our presence, we discuss the late night talk show scene such as Daddy Andy Cohen’s WWHL and Joan Rivers’ infamous short lived stint. Remember we mentioned those iconic red glasses, we chat with Sally about the origins of her trademark look, how many pairs she actually has, does she ever go out incognito, and whether she ever tires of them. An unbelievable trip down memory lane with the pioneer herself, Miss Sally Jessy Raphael. @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Brought To You By: NATIVE - www.nativedeo.com/velvet (20% Off Your First Order.

Isaac is beloved amongst and befriended by his celeb clientele such as Kelly Ripa, Brooke Shields, Faye Dunaway (they attended the Oscars together), Gwyneth Paltrow, and Real Housewives such as two of our favs from both coasts Lisa Rinna and Ramona Singer. Of course, we ask Isaac to spill the tea on what each of these women are like both during a work out and socially - the good, the bad, the other. Isaac chats about how his career skyrocketed during quarantine as a result of offering his premiere training for free on line in exchange for donations to the “No Kid Hungry” Foundation. Isaac chats about how he built his signature “Torch’d” classes into a global brand and fitness empire of epic proportion which just landed him in Forbes Magazine. Finally, we chat about that time we ran into Isaac at “Kelly & Ryan” where Isaac got a lap dance from his (and our) Queen Madonna, his recent marriage (sorry guys, he’s taken) which was attended by Faye Dunaway and officiated by Kelly Ripa and just what is next for this fitness prodigy who will not be slowing down any time soon! @isaacboots @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Brought To You By: NATIVE - www.nativedeo.com/velvet (20% Off Your First Order.

CAROLE RADZIWILL (on RHONY, Andy Cohen, Bethenny Frankel, Her Exit, & Not Ever Using a Ghostwriter!) - III
4559
In a rare Podcast appearance, Carole Radziwill steps Behind The Rope. After a brief chat with Carole about her career as a journalist, producer (3 Emmy wins) & NYT Best Selling author (shout out to "What Remains: A memoir of Fate, Friendship and Love”), we get into what y’all wanna chat about, The Real Housewives of New York City. Carole chats about her six year run on RHONY - the highs / lows, cast mates who have come and gone (Lu, Ramona, Dorinda, the Tins, Aviva & Much More), Adam!, and, if you have’t heard, the fact that she has never used, is not currently using and will never use a ghostwriter (shout out to "The Widow’s Guide to Sex & Dating”). Carole talks about one of the most shocking reunion moments ever - telling Andy Cohen he is full of sh*t and clarifies the truth behind her RHONY exit putting to bed once and for all whether it had anything to do with that reunion moment, her much publicized fall out and demise of her friendship with Bethenny Frankel or plethora of receipts of who said what, when and to whom she sent to production on the reg. We chat about whether Bethenny really is Andy’s “favorite”, what she got special treatment during her RHONY career and whether she should return to RHONY as cast or producer to fix the ratings slump. Carole chats about changes she would make to RHONY to increase ratings, who she would let go, bring back from the past, and whether serious topics like race and politics belong on TV. After all, she was ahead of her time with her very own political story line. Of course, we can’t help but ask if those suggested changes would involve her ever coming back. Listen to find out this plus a whole lot more rumors and myths clarified and set straight by the one and only Carole Radziwill, a guest that we have been chasing, stalking, and charming for quite a while to make an appearance here Behind The Rope! As they say, all good things come to those who wait.

Mary Cosby skipped the RHOSLC reunion. Was that her last act and statement to make it clear she quit RHOSLC, has she been formally fired, did she want to get fired? We break that and all the other season long RHOSLC drama down including the shocking revelation that RHOSLC cast members only make six thousand dollars per episode. We chat about Housewives' salaries over the years and what the future will likely look like in terms of Housewives’ pay days. Moving on, we break the fourth wall and address the recent media S storm from our recent viral episode with Kelly Dodd & Rick Leventhal. Speaking of RHOC, we chat about the return of Fancy Pants Dubrow, the recent accusations of “thirst” amongst newbies Jen and Noella, the plight of one Miss Shannon Beador, the comic relief of one Miss Gina Kirschenheiter and much more up to the minute news in the Housewives world that never sleeps. With return special guest Miss Sarah Fraser.   @thesarahfrasershow  @behindvelvetrope  @davidyontef Full Episode At: https://www.patreon.com/posts/61177640/edit Learn more about your ad choices.

Love hearing from y’all about who your fav RHOC from the past has been. Today we share another gem from our back catalogue, Lydia McLaughlin and her Mom, Judy Stirling.  On the heels of the The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Season Premiere, Lydia McLaughlin and her Mom, Judy Stirling, step Behind The Rope. Lydia and Judy are here to talk about their new Bravo Web Show, Glitter Town. Lydia and Judy explain that Glitter Town is a new digital series of them spreading “positive vibes” while making normal everyday tasks fun, happy and, well, glittery. They even went to New York City to pitch the show in person at 30 Rock, Glitter Bombs and all. Of course, we couldn’t help but chat with Lydia about all her cast mates past: Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Heather Dubrow, Alexis “Jesus Jugs” Bellino, Gretchen Rossi, Peggy Sulahian and Lizzie Rovsek. We discuss what it was like to film the show with these women - the good, the bad, the highs, the challenges, her role as the “friendship whisperer” during her RHOC Seasons Eight and Twelve, and what the status of her relationships with each of them is like today. We also talk about the current RHOC and hear Lydia’s thoughts on Braunwyn, Gina, Emily, and newbie Elizabeth Vargas. We chat about why a Web Series was the right platform for this show, check in on Lydia’s family - Doug and the boys, and hear all the details from the Glitter Town Premiere Party such as which RHOC were in attendance.

RHODC's Lynda Erkiletian (on RHODC, The Salahi White House Crash & Current State of Housewives)
4646
Lynda Erkiletian from The Real Housewives Of DC steps Behind The Rope. The Real Housewives of DC! As Andy Cohen once said directly to Lynda, “once a wife, always a wife.” We agree. We do agree. Originally, Linda explains, RHODC was pitched to her as a different type of non housewives show. Hmm, we have heard that before. Lynda explains how she was originally cast, when she found out it was in fact a Real Housewives show, and the reservations she had about joining the juggernaut franchise. She discusses the inevitable presence of politics in any show based in DC and the effect that had, not only on the season of RHODC that aired, but what a different show it would be if aired in the current political climate of today. Lynda also talks about the challenges both logistically and confidentially about casting and shooting in the political sector. Lynda expresses the disappointment in being the first of the housewives franchises to be cancelled. Of course, we discuss her cast mates Mary Amons, Cat Ommanney, Stacie Scott Turner and last, but certainly not least Michaele Salahi (now Schon), what filming with each was like, which relationships changed for the better and worse as a result of the show, and where each of those relationships stands today. We focus on what is was like to be part of a franchise that was “hijacked” by one cast maneuver for an event that made national headlines, was a breach of national security, almost shut down the whole production, involved the FBI, and, is most likely the reason why the show was cancelled. Michaele and Tareq Salahi. We go there. Lynda also gives us her thoughts and ideas on what the franchise would have been like if there had been a second season green lit without the Salahis. Whew - we gotta a lot to talk about.

3392
Margaret Cho steps Behind The Rope. Comedian, Emmy Award Nominated Actress, Musician, Advocate, Entrepreneur, Artist and one of our personal favs. Margaret chats about the full anthology of her career which began by performing stand up near her parent’s book store in San Fran. Early success - appearing in the Golden Girl’s spinoff, opening for Jerry Seinfeld - led to a whole host of stand up brilliance - the Queen of the one woman show, and her own ABC show, “All American Girl” where she was told she was either “too asian” or “not asian enough” on the reg. We chat about how much times have changed and how “All American Girl” would have been received by both network execs and audiences today. Back on the road today, we chat live audiences as well as Margaret’s contemporaries and inspirations - Ellen DeGeneres and Joan Rivers to name a few. Of course we chat Reality TV, Margaret’s own VH1 reality show, “The Cho Show” as well as competing on both "Dancing With The Stars" and "The Masked Singer" - shout out to The Poodle! Having appeared in many of our fav shows, we discuss those appearances such as in Sex and The City as well as Margaret’s new Hulu YA Rom Com, “Sex Appeal” starring alongside the one and only Paris Jackson. Finally, we chat about her epic contribution to the LGBTQ+ community that has been evident since the beginning of her very prolific, brilliant and varied career.

Theresa Caputo (on "Long Island Medium", Her Live Show, Spirit, & A Live Reading Here Today!)
5009
Theresa Caputo steps Behind The Rope. She’s Bacck!!! We had so much fun with Theresa the last time she was here, we had to invite her back. This time, we attended her stellar “Theresa Caputo Live” show per her invite from our last chat and have some questions we need answered. During the two hour extravaganza, Theresa connects with Spirit to help provide answers, clarity and relief to various audience members “lucky enough” to have someone come though. We dive deeper into what exactly does The Long Island Medium see and hear as she walks around the audience providing various messages from “the other side”. One common theme evident from this stellar, emotional - make sure to bring tissues, shocking, comforting show was that Theresa is not there, or here, to make believers out of everyone. Her goal is to provide relief for those suffering. On that note, we chat with Theresa about her uncommon day job, the skeptics, the critics, and those who just do not believe in “something more”. We chat about some of the “you need to hear it to believe it” moments from her show where she revealed specific things about audience members that were so detailed, only a very close loved one would know. Yes, we have chills. Off course we also needed to know if Spirit ever came though in Theresa’s own life in compromising positions or on a date, how she handles personal family Spirits, what she can tell us about “the other side” and death - yea we took it deep, and just how this gift has affected her own life and life’s calling. For all the wondering, yup, Theresa is still on the road, coming to a city near you soon. Tickets are available now for a chance to bypass her epic wait list and get a reading in person!! Obviously, we could not help but ask The Long Island Medium, while we had her, if anyone was coming through for us. Tune in now to find out and to hear the reading she provided for BTVR here while live on air!!  @theresacaputo @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef Tickets to Attend One of Theresa's Live Shows With The Chance of a Reading Click Here https://www.theresacaputo.com BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Brought To You By:  PELOTON - www.onepeloton.com (Try Peloton App For Free For 2 Months - New Members Only) LUMINEUX - www.getlumineux.com/velvet (15% Off Your Order Today.

CANDACE BUSHNELL (on And Just Like That, Sex and the City, SJP, Kim Cattrall, Dorinda Medley & RHONY)!!
4877
Candace Bushnell steps Behind The Rope. With all this talk from behind the scenes on “And Just Like That”, we could not think of anyone better to sit down and chat about it all with than the woman who started it all! Candace starts at the beginning - just how much life changed when her regular column for “The New York Observer” and best selling “Sex and the City" Anthology was turned into an international blockbuster show of epic magnitude for HBO. Candace talks about this transition, Darren Star, the birth of Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, Miranda - which are you?, and the casting of Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon which has forever changed her, their and our lives for the better. Never has there been a show that integrated fashion and pop culture so well. Magnolia Cupcakes, Cosmos, and Manolo Blahniks have never looked the same since. Candace chats about her own fashion, Pat Field, the many men of “Sex” that came and went, and how her own love of New York City helped shape the Big Apple as the fifth lead character. We pay homage to many of Candace’s other NY Times Best Selling Novels such as The Carrie Diaries and Lipstick Jungle (Brooke Shields, anyone?). Of course we chat “And Just Like That”, the lack of Samantha and what really went on backstage between SJP and Ms. Cattrall. Being a permanent fixture on the scene in NYC and The Hamptons, Candace is friends with many a RHONY. We chat about The Real Housewives of NYC - who does she know, would she ever join, what type of Housewife would she be, being told "Not Well Bitch" by Dorinda - kinda and finally, is there any sex in her city? Thank you Ms. Bushnell.

3325
Gretchen Rossi steps Behind The Rope. It is hard to imagine it has been seven seasons since Gretchen was last a full time cast member on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Gretchen reflects back on her several season run on the granddaddy of The Real Housewives Franchise. We discuss the good (meeting fiancé Slade Smiley, performing with the Pussycat Dolls), the bad (there seems to be no love loss between her and former co-star Tamra Judge, the 80s Bunco Party, a reference to a certain muppet who goes by the name Miss Piggy), and the other (how RHOC has forever changed her life). Gretchen chats about many of her former colleagues - Vicki Gunvalson, Heather Dubrow, Alexis “Jesus Juggs” Bellino, and Jeana Keough. Gretchen also discusses what she thinks about the exit of Vicki and Tamra and whether that friendship is real or for TV, just what went wrong with Last Season’s Fifteen, the exit of Kelly Dodd, and the return of one Miss Heather Dubrow. In other news, Gretchen has partnered with Lifevac (which protects your children from chocking emergencies), is a Mom (shout out to Skylar Gray Smiley) and Social Media Lifestyle Influencer (almost 1 million IG followers). With all that going on, we can’t help but ask the obvious, would you ever go back? @gretchenrossi @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: INDEED - www.indeed.com/VELVET ($75 Job Credit to Upgrade Your Job Post.

Lea Black steps Behind The Rope. That is correct, the “Mayor of Miami” is here to chat about her time on The Real Housewives of Miami - the highs and lows, the epic fights, the various cast members she saw come and go during her full series run, and the untimely end which left BravoHolics asking “why”? Fear not, the RHOM Reboot is alive and well. We, once and for all, get a clear answer from Lea as to why she is not involved in the Reboot - was she asked?, did she turn Peacock down, or was she not asked? Finally, an answer! Fear not, all your inquires will be answered. Lea shares her thoughts about the Reboot, the returning full time cast members Alexia, Lisa and Larsa Pippen, the newbies Julia and Nicole, and returning “friends of” Marysol and Adriana who somehow seem to have been at every party in every scene of filming… We chat about Joanna Krupa’s statements on the Reboot, Larsa returning to TV after Keeping up with many of The Kardashians, and the public’s reaction to the return of this once cancelled franchise. Splitting her time between Miami and LA, we had to chat current RHOBH - did Erika know, should Erika stay on the show, Tom Girardi’s (who her attorney husband Attorney Roy Black and her knew) fall from grace and whether she would ever join the RHOBH cast, most of whom she knows and many of whom she calls friends. Lea is busy running her Lea Black Skincare empire and hosting her Lunch with Lea Podcast so thank you Ms. Black for taking the time for this epic chat about it all!!  @leablackmiami @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef Ever wonder why Lea looks so good? Well, after listening to this, you now know it’s because of Lea Black Skincare. We have partnered with the one and only Mayor of Miami and are proud to say the ONLY skin care we now use is Lea Black Skincare. Go to www.leablack.com Enter Code VELVETROPE for 25% Off!

RHOC's Lynne Curtin (on RHOC Past, Present Future & "Cuffs")
4606
Everyone always asks us who are the nicest Housewives ever? Lynne Curtin is definitely on that list. Are y’all loving the new season of RHOC or longing for the vintage days of yesteryear? Check out this chat with had with Lynne back in what can now be considered vintage BTVR… The Real Housewives of Orange County's Lynne Curtin Steps Behind The Rope. Checking in from beautiful and sunny Orange Country, Lynne is here for some fun. Some fun and to tell it all. Let us start at the beginning. Lynne takes us back to when she was first cast to step behind the gates of Coto de Caza in Season Four of the hit Bravo show. Lynne walks us through how she was cast on RHOC, who she knew before being cast and some of the story lines we saw regarding her life as they played out on national television. We also discuss how Lynne handled her newfound fame and the ramifications it had on her personal life. We discuss how The Real Housewives of Orange Country has changed since the early days and how reality tv, in general, is a whole new landscape in the modern age. Of course we discuss the status of Lynne's current relationships with other OC staples such as Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Jeana Keough, Gretchen Rossi, Lydia McLaughlin, Emily Simpson, Heather Dubrow, Lizzie Rovsek, and the Peggys Sulahian and Tanous. We also talk about the times she has crossed paths with Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump and Stephanie Hollman. It is the OC after all, so we had to get Lynne’s takes on her “friendships” with Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow.

Mike Hill With Cynthia Bailey Cameo (on Leaving RHOA, Ultimate Girl's Trip, Life After RHOA, & New Careers!)
4793
The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Mike Hill steps Behind The Rope. He is back! First things first, we catch up with Mike on all that he has been up to since the last time he was here - Mike is the Morning TV Host Of “Start Your Day” and has taken up acting a la “Misunderstood”, a local LA play and the upcoming “Foster Law” in which he plays Judge Earl Johnson. Mike talks about his best selling book, “Open Mike” which was the cathartic journey he needed in life to clear mental health, a topic often stigmatized amongst “straight bros”, particularly straight hetero men of color. Mike also chats about what it was like to celebrate his recent past one year wedding anniversary. Mike talks married life to Cynthia - the challenges, how these two lovebirds keep the spark alive, and what is the best thing about being married. Of course, the convo quickly turns to Mike and Cynthia’s life after The Real Housewives of Atlanta now that Cynthia has announced she will not be holding a peach when RHOA returns next season. Mike chats about highs and lows from their several year run on the hit Bravo franchise, his and Cynthia’s feelings about the end, what he will miss the most and least about filming with our fav Peach Holders, and the TRUTH behind Cynthia’s exit. Finally, last but certainly not least, we chat about what is next for Team Chill, where they will live now that they don’t need to be at Lake Bailey to film on a regular basis, and just what is next for Mike, and Cynthia. Might we see them back on Reality TV sooner than we all expected? Tune in to fine out. Thank you Mr. Hill for stopping by and being, well, an “Open Mike” (Available everywhere books are sold!). Much to our surprise and excitement, Mrs. Cynthia Bailey made a guest cameo appearance to discuss Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip (#RHUGT) - the unexpected friendships, fights and drama, the appearance of “50 Cynt” and where she stands now with out fav Island OG’s (yes Tre, we are giving this one to Melissa) @itsmikehill @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef Brought To You By:  SHIPSTATION - www.shipstation.com (60 Day Free Trial.

Mary Fitzgerald from Selling Sunset Steps Behind The Rope. First things first, Mary works all the time, like, a lot, so thank you Mary for taking time out of your busy schedule to chat with us.

Then there is Romain. Ahh, Romain. Give us a minute. On a more serious note, Mary lets us know what the current stats of the Real Estate Market is in LA and the effects she expects Corona to have on that. Of course, no Selling Sunset discussion would be complete without discussing our love for Executive Producer Adam DiVello and his Masterpieces, The Hills and Laguna Beach. Mary agrees.

Real Housewives Of Miami's Karent Sierra (on RHOM past, present, future!)
4927
The Real Housewives of Miami’s Karent Sierra steps Behind The Rope. Karent, dentist extraordinaire, fills us in on what she has been up to since we last saw her our our TV screens. Besides running her dental practice, Karent has been helping those less fortunate than herself around the world through her Sharing Smiles Foundation. Ok, on to what everyone wants to talk about, The Real Housewives of Miami. Karent discusses what it was like to watch her friends on the show during its freshman season before she herself was cast for the stellar Season Two. She also explains her reservations on joining the show and why she ultimately decided to become a full time cast member. She explains how she was almost a full time host on “The Doctors”, the Power of Bravo and how her DM’s fill up every time Bravo airs an RHOM Marathon. Imagine what they are now that RHIOM is back in out lives on a regular basis on Peacock. Of course we discuss Karent’s colleagues Lea Black, Adriana de Moura, Marysol Patton, Lisa Hochstein, Anna Quincoces and last, but certainly not least, Joanna Krupa. We discuss the good, the bad, the other and where her relationship with each stands today. We address the fact that these very same colleagues accused her of smiling too much during her season. Umm, did we miss the memo? Is that a bad thing? Speaking of her cast members, Karent gives us her opinions on who changed the most since the show, who was thrilled to have the ever presence of cameras in their life, who was the most “different” on air when the cameras were rolling versus what they were like in real life, and who was the meanest of the “mean girls”. Karent lets us know what she learned about herself and life from filming RHOM and what she would do different, if anything, if given the chance to do it all over again. Speaking of “all over again” we discuss the Reboot with Karent - at the time of this recording not yet a definite - and why this fan favorite franchise was gone way too soon.  @karentsierra @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Brought to you by TRUEBILL - https://www.truebill.com/velvetrope (Start Cancelling Unwanted Recurring Subscriptions Now!

RHUGT. We deep dive into the fan fav guilty pleasure that is Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip - RHUGT - the shocking fights, the even more shocking unexpected friendships, the behind the scenes drama you did not see, what is yet to come as the season plays on, whether we can expect a reunion - how epic would that be. Also, we reveal the cast of Season Two to Kathryn on air capturing her priceless reaction when she learns two of her former 90210 colleagues, Miss Brandi Glanville and Miss Taylor Armstrong will be amongst the ex-housewives chosen to spend a week at the iconic Blue Stone Manor. Finally, we go deep down the rabbit hole with Kathryn about hypothetical Seasons 3 through hopefully 100 of RHUGT discussing very possible, as well as dream collabs, of potential current and ex-housewives that leaving us laughing so hard we almost lose sight that you wonderful audience are there listening. Of course, now that Miss Dubrow is back in our lives, we pay homage to the new season. You are all welcome for this everyone. The return of Miss Kathryn Edwards. #RHUGT @katedwards8 @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef Listen to Full Episode At: https://www.patreon.com/posts/59469729 Learn more about your ad choices.

Jeana Keough (on RHOC Past, Present, Future & Being The OG Of The OC)!
3774
With the return of RHOC, we figured it was time to revisit this chat with the Original OG of the OC, Miss Jeana Keough. Fun fact - this made our annual 2020 End of The Year List for last year. Can you tell if it was on our “BEST OF” or “WORST OF” llist? DM us with comments after you listen! Is everyone loving the return of the OC this season? Has Fancy Pants Dubrow single-handedly saved the franchise or do you think otherwise?  The other OG of the OC, Jeana Keough, steps Behind The Rope. Stepping out from behind the gates of Coto de Caza, Gina is here to talk about what "The Housewives" was like back in the day, Season One, Episode One Of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Gina was there when it all started with Vicki, Jo, Lauri, and Kimberly. Gina talks about what the casting and filming process was like during the hey day of Bravo and just how much it has changed in present day. We discuss some of her other co-stars during her five year tenure as a RHOC cast member: Tamra Judge, Lynne Curtin, Gretchen Rossi and Tammy Knickerbocker. We also discuss the current cast who Gina also knows well: Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson. We discuss that “other” housewife, or should we say “househusband”, Slade Smiley and check in on Gina’s family Kara, Shane and Colton following the passing of Dad Matt earlier this year. Finally, we discuss BravoCon, that infamous OG Panel, and her new friend to come out of it all, Adrienne Maloof. Nostalgia at its best! @jeana.keough @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Brought to you by THIRDLOVE - http://www.thirdlove.com/velvet (20% Off First Purchase) Brought to you by BETTER HELP - https://www.betterhelp.com/velvetrope (10% Off First Month - Use Code "velvet rope") Brought to you by WONDERY’S HARSH REALITY (Follow “Harsh Reality:The Story of Miriam Rivera” on Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, or you can listen early and ad free by joining Wondery Plus in Apple Podcasts or the Wondery App) Brought to you by SIMPLISAFE - https://www.simplisafe.com/velvetrope (40% Off your entire system!)

The Real World LA's Beth S. (on the Original, New "Homecoming", Erika Jayne, RHOBH & Becoming a RHOC)!
5689
Beth Stolarczyk steps Behind The Rope. The Real World: Los Angeles’ Beth that is. Beth chats about what it was like almost three decades ago to have been part of the second installment in the Granddaddy of Reality TV, The Real World. Beth chats about how the LA season invented many things we have now come to take as gospel in Reality TV - the confessional, the reality pet and the first ever person, David Edwards, to be “kicked off” a reality show. Beth chats about the David / Tami drama, her use of the word “rape”, why she was the room mate her cast mates, and America, just “loved to hate” and how this would all hold up now, three decades later. On that note, after the juggernaut success of Paramount Plus' New York installment last year, The Real World Homecoming: Los Angeles has arrived, reuniting Beth with her former house mates in the same Venice Beach House. Streaming now! Beth chats about how this experience was different, the drama we can expect as the season progresses and just how much Reality TV has changed. Being a huge Bravo fan, Beth chats Housewives, the Real World inspired Summer House and Winter House, Bravo real world alum Cameran Eubanks (RW New Orleans and Southern Charm Shout Out), Erika Jayne, Jen Shah and much more as we Mention It All! @bethsrealworld @eyelusionlashes_beverlyhills @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Brought to you by THIRDLOVE - http://www.thirdlove.com/velvet (20% Off First Purchase) Brought to you by BETTER HELP - https://www.betterhelp.com/velvetrope (10% Off First Month - Use Code "velvet rope") Brought to you by WONDERY’S HARSH REALITY (Follow “Harsh Reality:The Story of Miriam Rivera” on Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, or you can listen early and ad free by joining Wondery Plus in Apple Podcasts or the Wondery App) Brought to you by SIMPLISAFE - https://www.simplisafe.com/velvetrope (40% Off your entire system!)

We discuss the Oppenheim Group office drama and what Jason thinks of the womens' disputes on and off camera. Of course we asked Jason for his opinions on all of his employees Heather, Maya, Amanza, Davina, Chrishell, Christine and last but certainly not least, Mary.

Jason tells us about the one time he showed a house to Ariana Grande and what transpired between the two. He also answers one of life's most pressing questions, will he ever settle down? On a personal note, we also had to pay homage to the king, Executive Producer of Selling Sunset Adam DiVello, thank you 100 times over also for The Hills and Laguna Beach.  @jasonoppenheim @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Brought to you by AUDIBLE - https://audible.com/projecthailmary (Listen to Audible’s “Project Hail Mary”) Brought to you by RITUAL - https://ritual.com/VELVET (Get 10% Off During Your First Three Months)   Brought to you by RAYCON - https://www.buyraycon.com/velvet (15% Off Site Wide - Use Code “Holiday”) Brought to you by SKYLIGHT FRAME - http://www.skylightframe.com ($10 Off Your First Purchase - Use Code “Velvet”) Brought to you by CALIBRATE - https://www.joincalibrate.com ($50 Off First Year - Use Code “Velvet”) Brought to you by OMAZE - https://www.omaze.com/velvetrope (Receive 20 Extra Entries When You Enter Code “velvetrope20”) MERCH Available at - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/behind-the-velvet-rope?ref_id=13198 Learn more about your ad choices.

Calling MTV! The 98 side projects also include the family affair that was Dancing With The Stars. Sorry Nick, and Vanessa (Lachey), we will have to give it to Drew on this one. #mirrorballchamp #dwtsseasontwo We chat with 98 about dream collabs, meeting Michael Jackson, opening for Janet Jackson, Nick’s current Fox show “Alter Ego”, what their millions of adoring fans can expect from their mostly sold out year end live shows, and when can we expect more new follow up music to the brilliant “Where Do You Want To Go”. Of course before we let the boys go we had to pay homage to those brilliant, never to be forgotten 90s fashions. @98degrees @nicklachey @thedrewlachey @jefftimmons @jeffre.justin @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - https://www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope Brought to you by AUDIBLE - https://audible.com/projecthailmary (Listen to Audible’s “Project Hail Mary”) Brought to you by RITUAL - https://ritual.com/VELVET (Get 10% Off During Your First Three Months) Brought to you by RAYCON - https://www.buyraycon.com/velvet (15% Off Site Wide - Use Code “Holiday”) Brought to you by SKYLIGHT FRAME - http://www.skylightframe.com ($10 Off Your First Purchase - Use Code “Velvet”) Brought to you by CALIBRATE - https://www.joincalibrate.com ($50 Off First Year - Use Code “Velvet”) Brought to you by OMAZE - https://www.omaze.com/velvetrope (Receive 20 Extra Entries When You Enter Code “velvetrope20”) MERCH Available at - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/behind-the-velvet-rope?ref_id=13198 Learn more about your ad choices.

Introducing: Harsh Reality
869
It was supposed to be a reality show with a twist. In a sun-drenched villa in Ibiza, six hot guys compete for a cash prize and for the love of the beautiful and mysterious Miriam. It’s meant to be her big break: the moment she becomes the superstar she was born to be. But this is the era of “cruel reality TV” and the show producers have a different goal: they want to surprise the men with the fact that Miriam is trans. A new six-episode investigative series from Wondery, the makers of The Shrink Next Door and The Apology Line, and from Novel, HARSH REALITY is the story about love, lies, reality TV and a woman before her time: Miriam Rivera. Written by Agnes Borinsky and hosted by Trace Lysette.  Listen to Harsh Reality: http://wondery.fm/HR_Behind_The_Velvet  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
