332 - Bravo Breakdown w/ Ben Mandelker from Watch What Crappens

Pink Shade

Ben Mandelker of Watch What Crappens joins Mary Payne to talk all things Bravo this week! We go through 3 glorious episodes of the Housewives and have a few sidebars about other Bravo shows and drama (Metul, how could you do this to me, question mark). Ben has a real hot take on WHY we like Kyle this season as well as the whole “did Erika Jayne know?” controversy. We bask in the light of Gizelle’s fiery box as we break down the new season of Potomac. And, while we agree that we like Bershan calling out the ladies for being boring, we don’t like her calling OUR Lady Morgan a “clown”. We also think that Crystal and Sutton are both being real and “owning it” but maybe that’s not what these ladies really want. Spoiler alert - Ben agrees with MP that Erika didn’t know what Tom was up to.  She just buried her head in the sand and yes, she took the money, but she didn’t ask questions. Also, we are glad that depression during the pandemic was featured on TWO franchises this week. Follow Ben on Instagram and Twitter @benmandelker and follow Crappens on Instagram @watchwhatcrappens and on Twitter @whatcrappens. Visit the Pink Shade MERCH STORE - Hey Bunkie & Pink Shade logo items (Plus tons of 90 Day & LALU merch, Real Housewives items & more!)Join our Hey Bunkie Patreon Page for Erin & Mary Payne's bonus show recaps every week: Patreon.com/heybunkieJoin our Pink Shade Patreon Page for extra chats, recaps of documentaries, book reviews, true crime, personal stories & more: Patreon.com/pinkshadeJoin the closed Facebook group: Pink ShadeFollow us on Twitter & Instagram @pinkshadepod Subscribe to Payne In The Pod on iTunes or anywhere you listen to podcastsSubscribe to Cult Talk with Erin Martin on iTunes - or anywhere you find podcastsCult Talk Social Media links - Twitter @CultTalk / Instagram @culttalk / Facebook Group: Cult Talk with Erin MartinListen to Erin's BBC Special, Jonestown: From Socialism To Slaughter on the Heart & Soul Podcast See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
