    Podcast #152 – Interview with Luke Parker & “Temptation Island’s” Casey Starchak


    Hope you cleared out a good 3 hrs of your day today because we’ve got a long one. Luke Parker joins me for a very insightful 2 hr conversation about his time on the “Bachelorette,” and needless to say, it’s a liiiiitle bit different than what you were shown. This does not mean he makes excuses for his behavior, it does not mean he doesn’t own up to the things he said and did either. What he does do is provide a perspective of where his head was at during a lot of filming, and maybe some of the things you didn’t see because they weren’t shown which may help explain some of his actions. A very interesting conversation to say the least. Then, Casey Starchak joins me to talk about his journey on “Temptation Island” this season, with episode #2 happening tonight on USA. I know a lot of people have already formed their opinion of Luke based on what they saw this season. All I ask is you go into this interview with … Continue reading

    “Temptation Island” – Nell Kalter’s Episode 1 Recap

    If there are two things the thirteenth installment of The Fast & the Furious franchise taught us this summer, it’s that 1) People really enjoy watching bald men beating the sh*t out of bad guys while stopping mid-punch to say something quippy and 2) There will always be something new and shiny to blow up onscreen – and that includes relationships. Temptation Island doesn’t exactly fall into the Action movie category. Not one literal explosion occurred last season and nobody participated in a high-speed car chase over a rickety bridge like the boys who hail from Fast & Furious Land – soon to be a theme park attraction the moment Disney buys yet another studio! – but a sh*tload of emotional implosions did go down. Remember? Three couples broke up, two relative strangers got engaged, and the former long-term live-in girlfriend of the now-betrothed-to-another had her heart fileted on national television as she sat beside a motherf*cking bonfire. Even while the girl’s tears were still steaming down her cheeks, it was clear the series would … Continue reading

    Tonight is the premiere of “Temptation Island” on USA. The first episode has been online for a week now (and it’s included below), but in a switch up from last season where Kaci Campbell joined us every week, this season I’m gonna have one person from the four couples join me every week, which will cover 8 weeks. I was supposed to have another guest this week for the podcast, but things fell through, so for this week, it’s just Ashley. I spend the first 15 minutes discussing what’s going on in Peter’s season for those who aren’t following along on Twitter and IG. Also, I talk a little bit about the Rachel/Raven feud that I’m still continuously asked about on a daily basis. Have I heard what the issue is? Yes. But it’s not my place to chime in. If they want to address it, they will. I do however question the way in which Rachel is bringing this story about. I just don’t get it. The whole thing just sucks all around for … Continue reading
