Welcome to 'Hot Off The Mess,' a new pop culture news podcast from The Dipp starring Samantha Bush (a.k.a. @bravohistorian) as your host. Think of it as '60 Minutes,' but for Bravo fans. Each week, Samantha will be covering Bravo's breaking news stories and messiest moments, sometimes with the help of her Bravo-obsessed fans and even Bravo-lebrities themselves. And no one will be holding back. It might get weird, it might get snarky, and it's definitely going to get messy.

I am beyond excited to have been joined by my internet bestie Christine Biancavilla. She is a pop culture connoisseur and fashion queen.

Jana Kramer Rant
You all asked for a rant on Jana Kramer, so I delivered. I went through the timelines and Instagram posts that chronicled the relationship between Jana Kramer and Mike Caussin. They are a couple who does the most when it comes to "transparency" and "vulnerability". I also want to know who she is best friends with at US Weekly. Oh, and in true Bravohistoran ranting fashion I brought up Tiger Woods. Go sports! Listen, I warned you it was chaotic.

Never Have I Ever Stolen Anything
This week I discuss RHOA casting rumors, Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams are OUT! Vicki is single again. And Pump Rules has returned and dare I say... I loved it. And of course I discuss that insane stand up comedy routine by Erika Jayne. Also, Garcelle and Sutton continue to carry this god damn show on their back.

Instagram Relationship Do’s and Don'ts
Happy Tuesday! I talk about the do’s and don’ts of Instagram relationship etiquette (as i have learned from past experiences). As a single gal I explain the importance of how to “soft launch” your relationship to the masses and most importantly, don’t be ~that~ Couple. And of course I get into some Bravo, I can’t help myself!

PK Is Making Sense, Question Mark
What kind of insane world are we living in that PK is the voice of reason? I am not sure but... dare I say... I was attracted to him (and always has been). And of course, I talk about Real Housewives of Potomac, and yet again, try to figure out Mia. I'll put it this way. I'm struggling. And we finally got the Winter House trailer and I feel like that invigorated my spirit. So enjoy this episode!

Bachelor Nation Has A New Enemy
I am dipping my toes back into the dating world and wow Bethenny wow, it's interesting. I will keep you all updated as more develops but straight men should be banned from having phones. IMO. Also, I get twirly (New Girl reference) while watching Oscar Isaac sniff an armpit. And I breakdown WTF went down that led to Amelia and Scott split. And just because I don't watch Bachelor In Paradise, don't think I don't have my opinions. Because after last nights episode... I have tons and will now be watching from here on out. Enjoy the episode!

Gaslighting 101 By Erika Jayne
Week after week we are being gaslit by Erika Jayne Girardi, and I have had it. I dive into the wanna-be Lauren Conrad tear and the disappointment I felt in both Kathy and Crystal at the duck dinner. Also a hot take: this isn’t “dinner party from hell” equivalent IMO. Also, we dissect the Vanderpump rules trailer and I’m excited (?) Take a listen and find out why.

My Journey With An Eating Disorder
TRIGGER WARNING: this episode is a little different. I decided to kind of sit down and open up with you all about my ongoing journey with my "eating issue" as I liked to call it, and my relationship with food. I don't have it all figured out and might have used this podcast as a therappé session but I really felt this urge to open up about it. All I ask is everyone who listens to this episode is be kind to me and be kind to yourself. We are all figuring it out in the current hellscape.

Dorit Kemsley Tried And Failed
It wouldn't be the last episode of HOTM in this apartment if there weren't technical difficulties. So please bear with me. But OK, I had to break the news to everyone, we as a RHOP fanbase have to dump Juan Dixon. We do. Our Queen Robyn deserves better. I also talk about why we all need to go touch grass and take a walk before we start discussing RHONY Rumors. Everyone was doing too much this week. And of course, the Lip Kit Launch from hell.

Enjoy the episode and thanks to ZocDoc for making it possible.

Men Have Nothing But The Audacity
Ok. So I lost it a little bit this episode. Truly, deeply, lost my god damn mind. If you're looking for a structured, eloquent episode, keep scrolling. If you are looking to immerse yourself in the ramblings of a woman who walked only 57 steps yesterday, then look no further. I truly became unhinged because men really have the audacity. Or as Ramona Mazur Singer calls it, the "ordacity." I cover some alleged rumors surrounding the eldest Zolciak-Beirmann child, and somehow wind up dragging members of Bachelor Nation, and frankly men as a whole.

RHOBH & Candiace Bassett Interview
This is a very, very special episode for Sam, not only does she talk about Frank Catania Sr. sliding in her DMs (not for any reason other than to make her correct an Instagram Story lol) but she also gets to chat with her fave, Candiace Dillard "Stream Drive Back" Bassett. In this episode, Sam talks to Candiace about working with THE Kenya Moore, Sam's Detroit queen and of course gives us all the information on the new album. They also talk about Season 5 of Real Housewives of Potomac, and of course, Candee being the big Bravo fan she is, she also gives her honest opinions on certain Real Housewives. OH! And we got a quick cameo from Ms. Dorothy. Very quick.

Life and Dating w/ Lex Niko
On this weeks episode of Hot Off The Mess Sam is joined by the social media triple threat Lex Niko where they talk dating, weddings and freezing their eggs. And it wouldn't be a Tuesday if they didn't talk all things pop culture. Are they sick of Bennifer?

RHOBH + RHOP w/ Allison Piwowarski
This week Sam is joined by The Dipp's very own baddie Allison Piwowarski, Executive Editor, and host of the podcast's TV. Watch. Repeat., and the daily pop culture podcast Pop Chaser! This episode Sam and Allison admit to being Candiace Dillard Bassett stans, and demand more remixes of all of her songs. Also, voice their hesitation with newbie Mia Thornton. TBD on her. Allison fills Sam in on RHONY this week and how Leah was there...well she was there via Facetime, all very unnecessary. And of course our crown jewel, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. They talk about how the ladies had to subscribe and sign up for the LA Times membership to read the "long article" and how Sutton being financially literate is everything they needed.

Enjoy the episode!
Aug 13, 2021
Let's Talk Anxiety
This weeks episode is an interesting one, we see Sam in rare Scorpio form. She's vulnerable. *gasp* But it really is a cathartic episode where she breaks down the last few weeks in her life, and WTF happened when she went to Instagram jail. Oh! And of course, she gives her predictions that Kimye will pull a Ben and J.Lo. You heard it here first!

Jul 27, 2021
Pump Rules News & 'RHOBH'
Satan loves confusion. And that's referring to confusion around not only whatever is happening with Megan Fox and Randall Emmett's new movie, but also everything surrounding Erika Girardi. In the latest episode of 'HOTM,' Sam digs into some current 'Vanderpump' events, celebrates the small victories in 'RHONY,' and finds out... Rinna has a dog?
Jul 23, 2021
Jessie James Decker Rant
Sam talks about Camilla Cabello, sends congrats over to singer Halsey, and goes in on a certain three-name Nashvillian, Jessie James Decker. You all asked for a shallow dive into the disdain, and she's just delivering, okay? She also chats about influencer content culture, and how it will go the way of the Von Dutch Trucker Hat.

And as for this week's Pop Rewind, Sam chat about that prison poncho that was seen on Martha Stewart while leaving jail to finish her sentence in her sprawling estate. Enjoy the episode!

'RHOP' On Top
As the ratings for Real Housewives of New York plummet, the ratings for Real Housewives of Potomac rise, and that proves that nature is healing itself. In the latest episode of Samantha Bush's Hot Off The Mess podcast, she celebrates the highly anticipated premiere of RHOP, and everything it's bringing us. But also asks: Real Housewives of New Jersey aside, how involved should Housewives' husbands be in their storylines?

But there's more to discuss than just Potomac. Samantha also voices her appreciation for Lisa Rinna, talks about where she sides in the face-off between Sutton and Crystal, and wonders why no one on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ever eats the charcuterie plates presented in front of them. (A crime to leave it untouched. A crime!) Also: the tale of two Erikas.

BONUS: The One With Greggy Bennett

Extra, extra... who doesn't love bonus extras?

Dorit Kemsley Talks Erika & More! Plus, A Check-In With Vicki Gunvalson
And now, a break in regular 'Hot Off The Mess' programming for a very special edition of The Dipp's 'The Slut Pig Podcast' with Christian Gray Snow.

When Dorit Kemsley calls into 'The Slut Pig Podcast,' she does so in style: next to a pool, with a glass of champagne in hand. After all, there is a lot to celebrate — not only is it host Christian Gray Snow's birthday, but she's also a member of the best 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' cast in years. So that's why Christian's psyched to have her on to chat all things 'RHOBH' — from which cast member has her keeled over laughing, to which cast member might not fully believe Erika's story. But that's not all: a super special guest — the OG OC Housewife herself, Vicki Gunvalson, stops by to say hello and give a life update. Whoop it up!

Mob Wives and Deep Dives
How do you solve a problem like Ramona? We'd like to say a word on her behalf — Ramona makes us laugh. But does that excuse season after season of bad behavior fueled by Turtle Time and, well, a whole host of other issues? This is just one topic Samantha Bush broaches in her latest episode of 'Hot Off The Mess,' during which she's joined by a special guest, her Housewives soulmate and good friend Paige.

During the episode, Sam and Paige also toast the car wreck that is 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills's Sutton, plea Bravo to not give too much away in its trailers, and wonder: Why can't we just leave Meghan and Harry alone after the birth of their daughter?

Does Tamra Judge actually deserve a second chance? Are the rumors about Heather Dubrow possibly coming back to 'Real Housewives of Orange County' actually true? (Dave's got some intel, at least.) Listen in!
