Trash Box: A Real Housewives Podcast
Guilty! Of Being Shah-mazing

Guilty! Of Being Shah-mazing

September 18, 2021

Hello hello, and welcome to the latest episode of Trash Box! On this solo ep I cover the RHONY reunion cancelled (eyeroll emoji), the Salt Lake premiere (party hat emoji), Beverly Hills (bride emoji?), and Potomac (wide forehead emoji). 

I'm on Taria S. Faison's What Else Is Going On podcast this week to cover Salt Lake, so give that a listen, and next week we have comedian Tom Hearn back to dish on the latest Housewives fuckery. Also, help me find synonyms for the word "crazy"!

Who Is Erika Jayne In This World?

Who Is Erika Jayne In This World?

September 10, 2021

It's a solo Trash Box ep! I recorded this mere minutes after I watched this week's Beverly Hills, so my emotions are FRESH. And most of the emotions are rage, fury, anger. Erika is evil! Lisa was not drunk! Kyle needs to pick a lane! Oy. I gotta take a breath. Maybe it's time to go back to therapy?

Before we dive into #RHOBH, I publicly eat shit and read aloud the fan mail I sent to Erika back in 2017. This extremely real Instagram message is so, so embarrassing, and I'd like to formally apologize to the Housewives community. But, then again, hindsight is 20/20. Hopefully the fan backlash makes Kyle and Crystal realize that Erika is pure evil, and they turn on her in the reunion. 

Then it's Potomac time, where Michael is trash, Candiace is shady, Karen is delusional, and Gizelle is deeeeply in denial about her relationship with Jamal. So, yeah, your regular run-of-the-mill episode of Potomac!

Radioactive Tears: The Erika Jayne Story (w/ Taria S. Faison)

Radioactive Tears: The Erika Jayne Story (w/ Taria S. Faison)

September 4, 2021

This week I am so lucky to be joined by a fellow Housewives podcaster, Taria S. Faison. Taria is the host of What Else is Going On? @weigopodcast. In this very special super-sized episode we recap this week’s Bravo offerings and dive into a variety of topics, including (but not limited to):

-Internet trolls, racists, and Housewives fans
-how these women need to be breaking the fourth wall
-the different types of chain restaurants in America and Canada (extremely relevant)

The first show we cover is, obviously, RHOBH and the earth-shattering Dinner Party from Hell Part Deux Just… WOW. Neither of us are fans of Erika playing the victim or a “drunk” Lisa Rinna dressed head to toe in Teen Wolf couture (“Get that thing off my screen, right now”). But we both agree it's a fantastic episode of television.

Up next is RHONY, and we talk about how this season has sucked, what needs to happen next (Dorinda or no?), and applaud all their boobies, both real and fake.

 

Then it’s over to Taria’s neck of the woods, Potomac. That’s right, this East Coaster's got insider info and gossip from the DMV (DC/Maryland/Virginia, NOT the Dept. of Motor Vehicles), and an actual real life connection to Jamal Bryant and First Lady Gizelle. Also… do… I… love… Candiace? The answer is probably yes.

 

This was a fun one, so give ‘er a listen and be sure to check out Taria’s podcast, What Else is Going On?

Also, PROGRAMMING NOTE: I'm 99% sure I blew my nose in the second hour of this ep, but when I went back to edit it, I couldn't find the blow (insert joke about checking Dorit's bathroom). So, if you do encounter a nose blow, that's a fun lil’ Easter egg for you.

It’s Widows And Orphans! (w/ Natalie Metcalfe)

It’s Widows And Orphans! (w/ Natalie Metcalfe)

August 28, 2021

Trash Box has returned from vacay to report on the news of the day! This week I'm joined by my friend, proud Housewives obsessive Natalie Metcalfe, an actress/writer/comedian known for her sketch duo Christian & Nat and her work with the Second City, Toronto.

First up is the last Real Housewives of Potomac, which was an instant classic and the best episode of the season. Thank God for Ashley's messiness ("she blows it up, grabs her breast milk, and leaves!"), Wendy coming for deer-in-headlights Gizelle, and Candiace's confessionals. Then it's over to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills where Garcelle is surrounded by idiots, Dorit is the biggest idiot of all, and Erika continues her propaganda campaign. After some Below Deck chat (Captain Glenn is hot, and now we've said it!), we cover RHONY, which... was... fine? I guess? Sigh. This season has been a shit show. Where's Salt Lake?!

Check out Natalie's sketch comedy on Christian & Nat's YouTube page, and follow her on Instagram @nana_metcalfe and on Twitter @nanametcalfe.

F*CK OFF, LISA RINNA

F*CK OFF, LISA RINNA

August 15, 2021

Fuck off, Lisa Rinna. Fuck off, Erika. Fuck off, Ramona. 

Welcome to this week's sorta-solo episode of Trash Box. First we need to talk about the Salt Lake City trailer: WOW. They're really going there with Jen Shah, thank Christ! Speaking of fraudsters... RHOBH! Erika Jayne's bullshit tears and Lisa Rinna coming for Garcelle is rage-inducing television. Flames... flames on the side of my face. Next up is Real Housewives of Potomac, which is hopefully setting itself up for some ridiculous colonial drama in the coming weeks.

Then it's a special guest appearance from Emily's boyfriend, who's here to discuss RHONY and give his Jewish perspective on Black Shabbat. Emily may or may not understand the difference between Yiddish and Hebrew. Or not.

PROGRAMMING NOTE: I'm taking 1 or 2 weeks off, so make sure to subscribe to Trash Box wherever you listen to podcasts so you know when we return :)

I Love His Body, I Love His Ass, I Love His Dick (w/ Selena Vyle)

I Love His Body, I Love His Ass, I Love His Dick (w/ Selena Vyle)

August 6, 2021

Last September Nicky Nasrallah (A.K.A. drag sin-sation Selena Vyle) made the terrifying choice to watch every single Housewives show and episode in the order of when they aired. They have viewed 64 seasons in less than one year. And, somehow, they lived to tell the tale.

First up Selena shares their Top 3 Hottest Househusbands (mystery #1 is who the title of this episode refers to... and it's not who we expected). Then we dive into Beverly Hills, where Emily callously compares Erika to OJ Simpson. Next up is New York, where there's a lot of Simon Van Kempen references for absolutely no reason. Then Selena mimics their very precious Cameos from Caroline Manzo, and we end on a brief Potomac. Ding dang dong!

An Unexamined Life #BelieveErika (w/ Amanda Pereira)

An Unexamined Life #BelieveErika (w/ Amanda Pereira)

July 31, 2021

On this week's episode Emily is joined by Trash Box superfan (lol) Amanda Pereira, actress/comedian/host of The Liquid Courage Podcast.

Get ready for an extremely passionate episode. Emotions run high and opinions run wild. First up is RHONY, where the consensus is egomaniacs Ramona and Lu need to get packin'. Then, even though there was no new Beverly Hills episode this week, Emily and Amanda discuss the reviled Erika Jayne and fan favourite Kathy Hilton. Amanda has some truly shocking takes. The ladies finally end on Potomac, and ask... what's goin' on, Zen Wen?

Busted Ass Bean

Busted Ass Bean

July 24, 2021

Welcome to this special solo episode of Trash Box! Emily is back from her family cottage trip where there was no WiFi and no Housewives on TV (LE GASP). But she's caught up on what she's missed and is here to share her very important opinions.

First up is New York, which actually isn't the worst this week (thank you Bershan!). Does Sonja have an alcohol problem? Is it wise to confront her about it at the bar? Does the Salem psychic have access to Google? Yes, no, yes. Then it's over to Beverly Hills Does Kyle's Stolen Desert House, where Erika weaves a wild tale about a car accident, a cliff, and a coma. OK, hun. Finally we reach our beloved Potomac, which is the best show on television. PERIODT. Also, Juju Thornton and Grace Bryant are both the time, the place, the moment. And Karen continues her reign as the Shade Queen of the World.

Hot Takes & Trophy Wives (w/ Nik from The Real Housewives Out of Context)

Hot Takes & Trophy Wives (w/ Nik from The Real Housewives Out of Context)

July 16, 2021

It's a big week, folks! The much anticipated Potomac premiere, a RHONY episode where something actually happens (kudos, Bershan), and Erika's lawsuits blow up on Beverly Hills. Joining us is Nik from The Real Housewives Out of Context (@rhoutofcontext), a fantastic meme/fan account that you can find on Instagram and Twitter. Also, he's Emily's online pen pal, so we're pumped to finally meet in person and talk shop.

First Emily and Nik talk about all the casting shakeup rumours swirling about; will NYC finally kick Ramona to the curb? Did Dallas just clean house? And what's the deal with Porsha on Atlanta? Then it's Potomac coverage. Thank you Jesus for Karen Huger and these beautiful, hilarious, snarky *quintessential* Housewives! And welcome Mia, age...36? We follow that with New York and Beverly Hills!*

*Note to Erika: nice try with the cheap drug store mascara.

Peeping Tomasinas & Scorpio Ramonas (w/ Viza DeCline)

July 9, 2021

This week Emily is joined by Canada's most critically ignored drag superstar, THEE Viza DeCline. We're talkin' New York City, Beverly Hills, and anxiously counting down to the premiere of Potomac this Sunday. 

First up is RHONY: Scorpio Ramona is a nightmare, LuAnn goes blue, Viza thinks Bershawn deserves a promotion, and how do you solve a problem like Leah? Then on RHOBH we talk about Erika's most recent legal issues, how much we appreciate both Crystal the Smug and Sutton the Sensitive, and Viza, vocal hater of stan culture, admits she's a huge Kathy Hilton stan. "Who's Hunky Dory?"

Who is Mr. Poppins?! (w/ Tom Hearn)

July 3, 2021

This week Trash Box welcomes back the high-larious Canadian Comedy Award-winning actor/comedian Tom Hearn.

After shooting the shit about pandemic stress and Below Deck, it's time for a Beverly Hills deep dive. Emily and Tom discuss the fall of Erika Jayne (Tom's former favourite Housewife), the gift that is Kathy Hilton, the never ending Crystal vs. Sutton feud, and THEE ONE. THEE ONLY. MR. POPPINS. There's also lots of segues about body image, the definition of "convoluted" and the Kardashians. Then it's a hop, skip, and a jump over to New York, where Eboni continues to do all the emotional labour and fingies crossed this season gets better!

I’m Getting Bamboozled Here! (w/ Gillian Bartolucci)

I’m Getting Bamboozled Here! (w/ Gillian Bartolucci)

June 26, 2021

Welcome to another week of Trash Box and Real Housewives dramatics. In this episode Emily is joined by the hilarious comedian/TV writer/fitness wench Gillian Bartolucci, who's here to discuss the big Erika Jayne ep of Beverly Hills.

What is true? What is lies? Is Bravo really selling Ms. Jayne as a victim? Will anything be definitively proven this season, or will the ladies continue to kiss Erika's ass?! Gill also shares her dance-world connection to THEE "pat the puss" icon Mikey Minden, her thoughts on being longwinded versus interrupting, the art of deflection, and how she wants to be friends with Crystal. Hell, who doesn't? Well, apart from Sutton.

Grifters: What Erika Knew

Grifters: What Erika Knew

June 18, 2021

On this week's Trash Box we have a surprise twist: No Marshall Lorenzo, due to scheduling issues. Just Emily Richardson, doing her best not to talk herself into madness. Don't worry! He'll be back next week.

First Emily covers the exciting new Orange County casting news, then dives into the Erika Jayne doc; we touched on it last week, but now's the time to talk about Danielle's hair, Danielle's one liners, Danielle's blinding ego-- oh, and the people Tom stole money from. That was truly disgusting. And, hint hint, Emily's opinion regarding if Erika knew is in this episode's title.

Then she recaps Beverly Hills (featuring a Jen Shah tangent), bad bitch Crystal Kung Minkoff, Dorit vs. Kyle the Interrupter, and the Erika that never arrived. NYC's kinda blah this week, but at least we get the return of the verbally abusive boxing coach, someone we were definitely all asking for and certainly isn't being shoved down our throats.

Don’t Call Me Crazy! *Takes Out Face Roller*

Don’t Call Me Crazy! *Takes Out Face Roller*

June 12, 2021

Hello hello lovelies! Time for another award-winning (don’t look that up) episode of Trash Box! This week we’re covering NYC,  Beverly Hills, and then WHOA! We got a fancy screener for the upcoming Hulu/ABC Erika Jayne/Tom Girardi documentary “The Housewife and the Hustler” (premieres Monday) and we talk a bit about it... sans spoilies.

First up is RHONY. Everyone sucks except Eboni and Sonja, nobody knows what “white fragility” is, Heather Thomson has been in the “homes and cores of Black America”, and Leah has finally broken bad. RIP.
Then it's Beverly Hills: Sutton continues to unravel, we love Crystal and Kathy, and we hate Rinna (none of this is new). What IS new is Marshall BREAKING THE CASE and hypothesizing that Rinna’s Jackie Goldschneider-esque Denise/sexual assault analogy is actually about Charlie Sheen? It makes absolutely no sense and he’s definitely wrong :)

Finally it’s time for our opinions on the Erika Jayne doc featuring the talking head talents of Dana “$25,000” Wilkey, Danielle Staub, and legend/icon/woman Sunny Hostin. Our verdict: Tom is evil, Erika had to have known something, and watching interviews with the victims makes the whole thing even more disgusting. LOCK! THEM! UP! And FILM! IT! FOR! HOUSEWIVES!

It’s A Martini, Ladies!

It’s A Martini, Ladies!

June 4, 2021

Aaaaand we're back from our week off with good news and bad... the good? Emily's hand is healing! The bad? Marshall's dead tooth shattered on a piece of bacon. Help us, it's the last few minutes of Death Becomes Her over here!

But no matter, we shall soldier on. After brief coverage of the Potomac trailer and New Jersey's reunion finale from last week, we get to the important shit: Kathy Hilton's Beverly Hills Housewives! From the white noise fan to the night chips to the sleeping in to the martini prank, we are huuuge fans. We also discuss Sutton's uber-sensitivity and her white lady blinders. Then we ponder why (oh why) these women were so shocked by the sight of a grown ass woman chugging a martini. 

On RHONY Eboni is forced to deal with LuAnn and Ramona's white fragility, Leah's hit a sophomore slump, and Sonja is an artiste who likes dandy boys with pocket squares. We also talk about how all the current Housewives shows are dealing with the same issue: the new non-white cast members being forced to educate their co-stars. It's frustrating to watch, and hopefully these women start using their LISTENING EARS (insert picture of penis-hater Ramona plugging her ears).

Week Off, Can You Believe?

Week Off, Can You Believe?

May 28, 2021

Hey all! Emily pulled a Dorinda in Mexico: she stabbed her hand. Except she was sober (actually) and instead of a knife at the dinner table it was a shard from a glass that smashed while she was taking a bath. The doctor says nobody should ever take any glassware into the tub, so let this be a lesson to us all! Plastic cups from here on out.

A few stitches later, and everything's fine, but she can't edit any new episodes for the next few days cuz it's her dominant hand and it hurts to make it do stuff. So we're taking the week off and will be back next week to recap two weeks of RHONY, RHOBH, and the reunion finale of RHONJ. We'll miss ya! Have a good week.

And Introducing Kathy Hilton

And Introducing Kathy Hilton

May 22, 2021

Welcome back Beverly Hills! Things seem to be off to a promising start with the introduction of kooky Kathy Hilton DDT and the snobby Crystal Kung Minkhoff. Plus: our beloved Sutton gets her diamond, Garcelle has come to play, Lisa Rinna's on another bullshit apology tour, Kyle got a youthful nose job, Dorit's son Jagger is THE MOMENT, and Erica is unknowingly on the brink of total financial/marital/legal disaster. Sorry Glam Squad Mikey, your days of robotically Yas Queen-ing your boss' fancy Barbie duds are numbered!

Then it's over to RHONY, where Sonja gives us a repeat performance of the Morgan Letters, the apple orchard, that time she freaked about the family crest on the slippers, etc. etc. etc. Consistency is key.

On the first part of the New Jersey reunion, Teresa continues to be stupid, Marge had a meh season, and fuck off Melissa and Joe. Most of the recap is Emily gushing about how Jennifer Aydin is a star. Good job, concubine!

Heal From What?

Heal From What?

May 15, 2021

This week on Trash Box we say goodbye to Atlanta (we'll miss you ladies!) and Dallas (don't let the door hit y'all on the way out!).

But first up it's our favourite franchise, New York, where Sonja's being Sonja, Lu's being Lu, and Ramona's on her best behaviour. Alas, Ramona's very best behaviour is still startlingly rude. Just ask the help. Next up is the final episode of the Dallas reunion. Surprise! Kam is a racist! And now the Westcott brothers (Court and CHART) are attacking Tiffany online. Ugh, Bravo, fire her dumb-dumb ass ASAP. On Atlanta it's more unpleasant slut shaming from Kenya, but we also get some great screaming matches and truly ridiculous Marlo moments. And Drew's prayer? Inspired. Finally, we finish off with the New Jersey season finale, and, no, we want nothing to do with this phony baloney Melissa and Joe Gorga storyline. Sigh. Also, how did we begin this season on Team Jackie Goldschneider and end it as Jennifer and Bill Aydin stans? The world is a wacky place indeed.

Finally, we end our episode by circling back to Atlanta and discussing Porsha's engagement to Fallyn's husband. BONUS: Experience Marshall realizing who Fallyn is in real time!

Soft Spot For An Idiot

Soft Spot For An Idiot

May 8, 2021

It's here. Finally. The RHONY premiere! We jump right in and cover it all: new Housewife Eboni K. Williams (strong start!), LuAnn's sobriety, Leah's nose job, Ramona's terrible personality, and Sonja somehow finding herself back inside that cursed Upper East Side townhouse. Sigh. We missed our New York girls! Welcome back, you utter fools. 

Then it's on to the Dallas reunion, which is full of racists. Then it's over to the Atlanta reunion, where Marlo sports a sexy floor-length leather bib, Andy gets kinky for Kandi, and Kenya continues to be exhausting. Finally, we head up to New Jersey. It's official - get rid of the Gorgas and Jackie, hold on to Frank and Dolores for dear life, and more pineapple cum references, please!

I Hate You, I Love You, Have Another Drink (w/ David Yontef)

May 1, 2021

This week Emily and Marshall welcome a very special guest: David Yontef, host of the pop culture podcast Behind the Velvet Rope and real-life friend to many real Real Housewives! 

Obviously we do our darndest to suckle as much juicy intel as we can from David's brain, and he dishes on who's a sweetie, who's a diva, and who's a "horrific, vile, disgusting, repulsive human being." His actual words. We also discuss the latest Dallas, Atlanta, and New Jersey eps, the upcoming season of RHONY (Eeee! Next week!), and Joe Gorga's perfect tush. Oh, and Emily actually has her own excluuusive RHOA gossip she heard from a friend of a friend of a friend. And it has to do with who ACTUALLY (errr... allegedly) fucked Bolo. PIKACHU MEME FACE.

Be sure to listen to David's podcast Behind the Velvet Rope and follow him on the Instagram at @behindvelvetrope and @davidyontef!
