    “Temptation Island” – Nell Kalter’s Episode 8 Recap

    I feel the need to inform you, dear reader, that the initial wager I so cavalierly threw down about which couples would destruct into heaping piles of sh*t before our very eyes and which couples would survive their time on Temptation Island and go limping off into the sunset has completely fallen to pieces. It’s hard to recall exactly what I said back then (and scrolling through my earlier recaps for clarity just seems like an awful lot of work), but I’m pretty sure I boldly bet that Kaci and Evan would remain solid and faithful and Shari and Javen were doomed. Yeah. I used the word “doomed” to describe those two, though to be fair, that was before I heard them refer to one another as “Baby Girl” and “My Love.” But c’mon! Who could have foreseen such a thing? Didn’t they appear miserable together? Who could have known then they would be even more miserable apart?! And who could have predicted that Evan would not only sleep with, but also fall hopelessly in … Continue reading

    I know this is a “Bachelor” column, but anyone who knows me and what I like, knows that the news coming down yesterday of Luke Perry’s passing had to know what a blow that was to me. In a couple weeks, I’m going to do the podcast with Tara Ariano and Sarah D. Bunting from the “Again With This” podcast to talk all things “Beverly Hills 90210.” They were the ones I recorded with back in January and I accidentally deleted it. Still pissed about that, but we’re re-recording next week, so you should hear that soon. Anyway, I guess we have one more, if not terribly tragic, topic to discuss. Millennials probably can’t comprehend how important Luke Perry was in early to mid 90’s. He’s what every HS kid aspired to be. Sideburns became a thing in the 90’s BECAUSE of him and Jason Priestly rocking them during the show. The dude was who we all wanted to be. Personified cool. That show had a huge impact on my high school and college years … Continue reading

    Podcast #119 – Interview with “Here to Make Friends” Podcast Co-Host Emma Gray


    Fun times today talking with “Here to Make Friends” podcast co-host, Emma Gray, and then speaking with Kaci Campbell of “Temptation Island” for our weekly chat. One thing about the beginning of Emma’s interview is that her messenger “ding” goes off about 5 times in the first 5 minutes before she figured out how to shut it off, so just know that goes away about 5 or 6 minutes in. Never had Emma on before, but I know a lot of people enjoy their podcast, and I’ve been on their podcast a couple times, so I figured it was about time we had her on. She definitely has an interesting perspective on the show covering it as a feminist, which we get into. Also, no ads this week, but there is one stop down where I give out a website address to fill out another survey to update our advertisers on what you the listener want to hear. That link is below as well. Please take 3 minutes to fill it out if you could, … Continue reading
