Rank #9: Oops! Britney did it again. And again

Podcast cover
Read more
HOLA! Welcome back.
Bachelor in Paradise started this week, so naturally, we took it upon ourselves to debrief all about the show's premiere. Michelle thinks Davey and Flo will be the first to have sex, Zara thinks she's wrong and mostly, we talk a whole lot of crap about a show that's just a whole lot of crap. Loveable crap, that is.We also deep-dive the return of Britney Spears - considering she randomly re-surfaced in our news cycle TWICE this week - and discuss the media's troubling response to a story about Robin Williams and his larrikin antics on the set of Mork & Mindy. Can we call it sexual harassment when it's not, by definition, sexual harassment?
