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.

Britney Vs. Jamie Lynn, and Kanye's New Muse Makes Me Cringe Sweat
This week is a hodgepodge of... nonsense quite frankly. I go from mauve giving the West Elm Caleb fuckboi the benefit of the doubt, then talked abut my own dating experience in 2022. And of course I have to talk about Britney Spears and her ongoing, rather sad feud with her sister Jamie Lynn.. who cant seem to stop talking. Enjoy!

And Just Like That (We're Iconic with Danny Pellegrino)
In this special bonus episode of Shortcomings, Sam and Chris are joined by a truly iconic guest, Danny Pellegrino, to break-down And Just Like That. 8 episodes have aired and we just take time to get into it.

WTF Is Going On In Salt Lake City?
Guys let’s be real, what is happening!? Does anyone know? Of course not. So I brought in my bestie and co-host of Shortcomings Chris Lewis. I help explain summer House to this Hamptons virgin and we try to make sense of what the fuck is going on with RHOSLC.
Jan 21, 2022
And Just Like That (We’re Processing)
This one is a doozy of a Shortcomings episode. Sam and Chris are simply not on the same page about this one, but before they get into it Chris shares who’s haunting his dreams and the five cameos he needs if there’s a season 2 of And Just Like That. Then they get into the episode and ponder the demise of the Hobbes-Brady marriage, full-frontal shots, and Carrie’s intense focus on their neighbors. Take a listen!
Jan 20, 2022
BONUS: Summer House
I am joined by Allison Piwawarski this week to discuss our favorite Bravo show, Summer House! It is back and we couldn’t be happier. We discuss our love of Carl Radke and our genuine concern over the Batula-Cookes. The Cookies are crumbling. Enjoy!

Seth's Tittie Cake, New Couple Alert, and RHOM
The time has finally come, Lindsay Hubbard and Carl Radke have announced they are dating, thank god. I was getting tired of speculating. I break down all of the best show on television, Real Housewives of Miami. Every single episode is delivering, meanwhile RHOSLC causing headaches and confusion. And yet, I love it. Enjoy!
Jan 14, 2022
Shortcoming's: And Just Like That (We’re At It Again)
With only three episodes of the next chapter left, Sam and Chris couldn’t help but wonder…where is this all going? But before they get into the episode, Chris shares a few recommendations (watch The Lost Daughter ASAP). They then share their mutual feelings about the lack of LTW, dig into exactly what is going on with Steve, and go to town on our newest man Peter…iconic everyman or jester flop? Take a listen!

Jan 11, 2022
Big Announcement, And My Feud With Mary M. Cosby
TRIGGER WARNING: I do talk about an eating disorder in the beginning of the episode.
But this episode is a hodgepodge of... truly, I don't know what. I make a big announcement, very exciting. And find myself defending Larsa Pippen to the death (unexpected for me as well). I also dive deep into my feud with Mary M. Cosby. Fingers crossed she doesn't send Jesus after me. And I breakdown RHOC. Enjoy the episode!

Shortcoming's: And Just Like That (We’re Dragged)
It’s episode 6 of the next chapter and we’re moving forward and backwards all at once.

A Year In Review
Wow Bethenny Wow, what a fucking year. I look back on the last 12 months of Bravo, I take us back in time to Madison and A.Rod, Porsha, and Simon's engagement, the time we watched Erika Jayne have mascara running down her face while sitting on a tree stump. Just reminiscing on the best year in Bravo history (or at least the best year within the last few years). Enjoy the episode and stay safe!

In today's episode of Pop Chaser, Allison is joined by Kaya Wilson, social media manager of The Dipp. The two discuss everything from RHOSLC's not-so-peaceful luncheon, the RHONJ trailer (and all of the fighting), the very dark and heavy Euphoria Season 2 trailer, and give Ben Affleck a drag through the mud.

Taylor Swift's Goin' To Court (Again)
This week is a little chaotic, with lots of rambling. Taylor Swift is going to court (again), Kim is dropping the West and the Succession Finale was the best hour of television I've seen in a minute. I also talk about the amazing The Hollywood Reporter interview with Jennifer Aniston, who brings up amazing points on the changing of the guard with early aughts tabloids and social media keyboard warriors. And I have to ask, are we all just Perez Hiltons? Something to think about. Enjoy the episode!

Dec 14, 2021
BONUS: The 12 Gays of Christmas with Brian Moylan & Danny Pellegrino
The only things Everything Iconic podcaster Danny Pellegrino and Brian love more than Real Housewives are Christmas movies. Here they talk about one of Danny’s unhinged favorites, the 2000 version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas starring Jim Carrey. They talk not just about the nonsense plot that was grafted onto the Dr. Seuss classic, but also all of Carrey’s awful on-set antics while filming it. Of course they couldn’t not talk about the Housewives, so Brian and Danny share which of the women they think are naughty and which they think are nice.

Below Deck Chats w/ Fraser Olender
I really want to just cut to the chase, I love Below Deck. It's one of those shows that is a comfort show like Great British Bake Off but with more tension. And I love it. I love seeing the people actually working while delivering chaos and drama over who left the laundry in the washing machine or who didn't clean up their mess in the galley. It gives me a rush. So that is why I was so excited to chat with break-out star of this season's Below Deck, Fraser Olender, a beautiful man who gave me some behind-the-scenes tea on the inner workings of the show we all love. Enjoy!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

'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.

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.

Listen in!
