He's one of the funniest human beings I had never even seen a picture of before we met in the studio. Brian Moylan is someone I've been dying to meet forever. He writes hilarious recaps of the REAL HOUSEWIVES for Vulture and I've always wondered about the genius behind the genius. We find out his favorite and least favorite housewives, the worst husbands and who's crazier: Ramona or Vicki? (Spoiler alert : it's a tough call!)

Kyle Richards – RHOBH
Whether you know her from her acting past (Halloween, Little House on the Prairie!) or from her 8 years as one of the OG’s from The Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kyle Richards needs no introduction. Kyle was born into show business, left to get married and raise her 4 daughters & then went back into the game for what she thought would be an easy low key show. How did that turn out?:) We have a lot of fun talking about the Housewives and her new show American Woman premiering June 7th on the Paramount Network. We go deep into her childhood growing up as a showbiz kid the 70’s, talk about why Mauricio's family didn't want her to marry him and how she became an extroverted introvert. Enjoy! **PLEASE GO TO ITUNES TO GIVE ME A 5 STAR RATING AND SHORT REVIEW -THANK YOU!!

If you’re a fan of true crime you probably know Josh Zeman’s work. His award winning documentary CROPSEY put him on the true crime map and is a must see. We talk about how he became interested in the subject and made that film. Josh went on to do another successful doc called KILLING LEGENDS which you can see now on Amazon Prime. Most recently, he did the in-depth docu-series THE KILLING SEASON on A&E. Even though Josh got his start in feature films, he’s firmly planted his flag in the true crime genre, which lucky for him is as hot as ever.
