Bonus: Wtf Did We Watch This Season of BH? ft. The Real Housewife of The Westside
If RHOBH was hard for you to get through this season for whatever reason, we probably have the same opinions. I decided to consult with an expert who doesn’t just know Housewives, she knows their world and a FEW personal things about THEM! Jess from TRHOTW and I deep dive into what went wrong with storylines, casting, and editing, and even get into the serious topic of Bravo changing its tone disordered eating with the cast people are most concerned about. Did it work? We discuss that, housewives past, why no one talked about their actual drama, if Kitson is really a thing and she even spills some MAJOR tea about former housewives that she has actually worked with or knows! We get into it ALL so have fun and tell us what you think! Follow Jess on IG @therealhousewifeofthewestside and follow me at @mixingwithmani! Feel free to rate us on this episode on both our Apple podcasts accounts and leave a review, we’d love to hear from you! Any 1-star complaints or suggestions? Bring it to our dms!

Get into some politics, some hot topics, and some tv all featuring adults messing up and not really know what they’re doing! This week I review #netflix shows and departures and decisions. New obsessions on Hulu and what America needs to do to make tv better. I talk laws and what will be a big factor with candidates as of this week. Aziz ansari is back... oh boy is he. Let’s talk about. Bachelorette of COURSE and why that and this season of Southern Charm has been a disappointment. Why I was not an adult this week and it’s only Tuesday. You ever just not an adult?

Welcome to the Mixer
This inaugural ep showcases my thoughts and opinions on shows ranging from the bachelorette, to Bravo, to the mtv awards for reality royalty. I quirkily discuss target demos and why networks won’t integrate casts when clearly lots of us are watching the same thing! Mainly I’m all over the place so come along.
