Austin Butler, Charlotte Lawrence & Megan Thee Stallion?
Today's new episode of Who's There is so jam packed with calls that we didn't even have time for opening banter! There is, however, enough time for Lindsey to call Bobby out for the fact that transitions occur on his terms only. Can you say TENSION?!?!?!?! Anyway, this week's calls will teach you about all kinds of things like the Ukrainian flag, Mackenzie Davis, Rita Ora's collaboration with an *entire* city, Hot Girl Summer, Adrienne Bailon's abandoned Instagram, Vanessa Hudgens's soon-to-be extremely famous boyfriend, and someone named Charlotte Lawrence. Honestly I already forgot who she is but it has something to do with music? Or Scrubs?

Happy Midsommar! (Does that mean "mid-summer" as I am assuming it does?) It's time to speculate on the rising star of the horror flick's star, Florence Pugh—does it help or hurt that she's dating Zach Braff? How about Channing Tatum getting freaked out by a new astrology app that might be listening to him (or paying him for #spon)? Does budding Them Shawn Mendes allegedly dating budding Them Camila Cabello help their Them statuses? Would you buy a Miss Honey-inspired jumpsuit from Leighton Meester? How about a rumor that Brad Pitt is becoming a full time beekeeper? (Would you buy that?) And who is Lashana Lynch, aka the maybe-new 007? Is she more or less important to you than Miranda Kerr calling out her husband and son's dry skin problems? So many questions! Tune in to find out.

Today on Who's There, we begin with three comment calls! One is about the fleeting nature of Clear Blue pregnancy tests (despite the permanence of their accompanying Instagram posts), while the following two update us on Sarah Jessica Parker's cryptic comment that was apparently misquoted by Us Weekly. The remainder of the show features calls about a lesser known fault in California, the host of Love Island USA, the spawn of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, a pseudo-feud between Apryl Jones + Moniece Slaughter, and the word "Fuckships." We also update listeners on Joss Stone's creative project and play a game of Who/Them that includes a VERY wild story about Bobby's run-in with Olympia Dukakis. Per usual, it's a jam-packed episode.Call 619.WHO.THEM and we might play your call on an upcoming episode! Want more stuff?

Tell me you didn't read "Halle Berry" when they announced that The (new) LIttle Mermaid would be someone named "Halle Bailey"?????? Who is she, again!? (We'll get into it.) Plus what's Wendy Williams up to? Does Gwyneth Paltrow realllly not know who Sebastian Stan is? (And would you remember which Marvel movie you were in if you were in more than one?) How Liam Gallagher's un-estranged (sp?) daughter Molly Moorish somehow caused even more drama with his brother Noel. Finally, Anwar Hadid & Dua Lipa make it "official"—kinda, and Rita bares her toned abs. Call 619.WHO.THEM and we might play your call on an upcoming episode! Want more stuff?

Mary Steenburgen, Sebastian Maniscalco & Jessie Buckley?

Hello from Nashville where: people did show up for our show (thank you!) and we did attend an incredible #spon Maren Morris concert brought to us by...wait for it...Tyson. But that's not important.

After taking a week off to discuss Eurovision (#JusticeForSweden), we're back with another episode of Who's There to discuss your questions and comments. Today's journey takes us from Hasan Minhaj (he's a Them to South Asians), to Hulu (where Ben is Back), to St. Louis (where there aren't any Rite-Aids), and then into the murky waters of queer (or queer-adjacent) Janelle Monae drama, which leads us allllll the way to Australia, where Teresa Palmer is busy selling us powder that probably does nothing. And how did we go on this journey, you ask? Why, we drove our Honda Civic with two Paul Walker decals on the back! (Just listen to the episode to figure that one out.)Call 619.WHO.THEM and we might play your call on an upcoming episode! Want more stuff?

Updates on Eurovision (Who won?), James Charles v. Tati v. Jeffree Star (Who won?) and the Game of Thrones finale (Who won?) The inappropriate gift Future gave his son, (Baby) Future. A Coca Cola bottling heir's private plane gets caught with 5,000 cannabis plants and Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

OK, fine, the biggest event of the month! OK, fine, the biggest event of the week! OK, fine, the biggest event of the weekend! You happy? Eurovision 2019 is happening RIGHT NOW and the final is THIS WEEKEND, so you'd better catch up and pick a fave by Saturday afternoon. Throughout our music-heavy journey, we gush about our faves (Iceland and Sweden and Greece), our least faves (Czech Republic, Switzerland, and Australia), the hunks (Italy and Azerbaijan), and the vloggers (France). OH! We also talk about the new Nicki Minaj meme because "Roman Holiday" would definitely win if America were A) in Eurovision, and B) allowed to enter seven-year-old songs.Call 619.WHO.THEM and we might play your call on an upcoming episode!

Do the names Tati Westbrook and James Charles mean anything to you? If not, boy, do we have an episode for you. (And if they do mean something then, boyyyyy, do we have an episode for you.) A feud for the ages!—or, ages 8-16—but if you're not a tween or teen, then let us explain everything to you. Then, Constance Wu fully chomps off the hand that feeds her and from across the pond Geordie Shore's Vicky Pattison develops an unusual Doritos-based nighttime eating disorder.

This year's theme, "Camp", however, goes perrrfectly with our topics today: Pete Doherty's hedgehog bite? Camp! Lori's not-so-graceful exit from When Calls The Heart? Camp!

Today's episode of Who's There starts off with a long rant about panel behavior (don't ask, just listen), takes a left turn into an introduction to our new favorite Albanian pop queen with an asymmetrical wig (?), and ends with us deciding on a very fun new name for Lake Bell fans. (We won't spoil it here, it's just too perfect.) Also featured are calls about Dr. Phil's dog, Christian Emiliano, as well as the difference between Leslie Mann and Lesley Manville. Oh, and how could I forget a game of Who or Them, featuring people like Peter Gallagher, Amy Sedaris, Raffi, and... Goofus?

We're really losing it with these episode titles, aren't we? Today we'll explain why Ariana Grande, Olivia Munn, Michael Che and Lizzo are all angry with "bloggers"—bloggers! Also why Blac Chyna has not graduated from Harvard (yet) and why the Duggars renamed their deviled eggs with something more holy. Plus, this "Fofty" drama and how it spawned our new favorite meme thanks to 50 Cent, Lala Kent and her "man" Randall Emmett. #MoneyByMondayRandall
Who's There: Jordan "Dr. Phil's Son" McGraw & #FreeBritney?
Happy Friday everyone! Happy ME! Day, too! (I am writing this hours before Taylor Swift's new song/video drops, so I have no idea what we think of the song yet, but I can assume we think enough for it to be a big deal.) But that's too Themmy, so let's move on to the Whos. On this week's episode of Who's There, we take a call from a dentist about Shay Mitchell's tooth, a call from a very smart Roman history expert on Simon Cowell's ghost, a call from a friend about celebrity divorce attorneys, a call from a Broad City fan about Abbi and Ilana, a call from a The Wife stan about Glenn Close's Notre Dame tribute, a call from a concerned Britney Spears fan about #FreeBritney, and a call from... uh...

(Adele's Ex) Simon Konecki & (Michelle's Ex) Phil Everum?
Cuffing season's over and everyone's breaking up: Adele and her husband, Michelle and her husband, the two accapella lovers from Pitch Perfect—acca-no! And David Pecker's American Media Inc. is selling the Enquirer—but does it matter? (What matters is the rag's new owner's daughter's bat-mitzvah theme.) Shay Mitchell's tooth fell out because of a bagel sandwich? (Do we really believe this?) Danny Amendola's pissed his ex Olivia Culpo smooched Zedd (yes, Zedd) at Coachella, Ewan McGregor's daughters (and Tyler Blackburn) are bisexual and Patrick Schwarzenegger is bumming me out.

We're trying this thing where we provide GRABBIER episode titles for you all and, uh, I think this is our best yet! I mean, would you rather listen to "Who's There: Antinous & David Adefeso" or "Who's There: The Gay Ghost Haunting Simon Cowell & David Adefeso"? (If you say the former, UNSUBSCRIBE NOW.) (Kidding, never ever ever do that.) Anyway, Simon Cowell's house is probably being haunted by the thotty gay ghost of some hunky Roman named Antinous. What's his unfinished business, you ask? He neeeeeeeeeeeeds to become a gay influencer on Instagram! OooOoOOoOOOOo, is there anything spookier?! Moving on, we've got some corrections per usual, a little chatter about Judaism per usual, gay shit per usual, and a lengthy investigation of Tamar Braxton's new boyfriend who may or may not be solving the student loan crisis.

Moving on, we tackle Rita Wilson--specifically whether or not her recent star on the Walk of Fame makes her a Them--and wade into extremely rough and hard to pronounce political waters for a brief chat about Pete Buttigieg?

Lil Nas X & Rose Hanbury, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley?
A whopper of an episode as we all long for the days when these things were 30 minutes long. Well, sorry nostalgia, because we have shit to discuss. For starters: What's going on with Wendy Williams? Colton Haynes? Nico Tortorella's memoir? Emrata's husband's unpaid rent? (Plus, a game Bobby has named "Rata or Nata?") Tori Spelling's new mommydrama, Nic Cage's upcoming annulment, Isabella Cruise's new role in the world of Scientology, why England is riled up about a woman named Cholmondeleys (pronounced "Chumley"), and how Lil Nas X got kicked off the country charts (and why that's fucked up!)

What did Cat Marnell overhear (and then tweet and then delete) while on a train in Switzerland about Leonardo DiCaprio ex Kelly Rohrbach and her boyfriend, Walmart heir Steuart Walton? Why are fans of a vegan YouTuber named Rawvana very, very upset? (Hint: It has to do with veganism!) Did Catherine Zeta Jones nail airport chic in a lilac suit and fedora hat as she arrived in New York with a TROLLEY full of suitcases? Are Lady Gaga and Jeremy Renner spending time together as friends or as...something more? Is author Elizabeth Gilbert finally normalizing her Eat, Pray, Love lifestyle? And can someone please tuck in Tammy Hembrow's tag for her? Thanks.
Today's episode is a wild ride, and I feel like that's saying a lot. After addressing your scores of calls reminding us that USC is NOT a state school, we dig into Shane Dawson pulling a Miranda Lambert, aka taking part in a distraction engagement to another YouTuber. Later, we take calls on Joss Stone's profoundly strange world tour as well as an even stranger story from her past (circa 2008). Later, we take a call about our SECOND-favorite Whiskey Cavalier star, Lauren Cohan, and fall into the confounding hole that is the "Personal Life" section of her Wikipedia. Last, we introduce you all to Cory Booker's one true love: coffee. As always, call 619.WHO.THEM to leave questions, comments, and facts about Joss Stone that we missed, and we may use your call in a future episode.
I'm in love with the shape of [Ed Sheeran's] pool! (Trust us, it's a pool.) First, an #OperationVarsityBlues update (or #OperationVarsityWhos, but you get it) all about What The Flicka? and where The Flicka it went! (R.I.P. mommy mugs). And is this the end of Hallmark's iconic "When Calls The Heart"? Next, Elizabeth Holmes—a Silicon Valley them with the Who'iest of tendencies—whose "voice" we'll never forget. And a new face in late late late night: the YouTube-famous Lily Singh. Speaking of YouTube... Did Shane Dawson fuck his cat?(uhhh) Is Dirty John's Terra Newell our new favorite influencer? Is Dido thankful for her jeans? Does Rita Ora now have two songs called "R.I.P."?
As much as we'd love to do a typical Who's There, we just HAD to focus today's full episode on the scandal to end all scandals: Operation Varsity Blues [cue I_Dont_Want_Your_Life.mp3]!!! The story that rocked our nation (or world?!) involved a Desperate Them (Felicity Huffman), a vlogging Who (Olivia Jade), a When Comes the Heart star (Lori Loughlin), a billionaire with a famous first name (Mossimo Giannuli), and, weirdly, the star of a beloved 90s film (James Van Der Beek). So grab a bag of YummyPop and strap in, because this episode is going to be as jam-packed as an SAT prep course.
Zandy Reich & Bethenny Frankel's Leaky Gut Syndrome?
Happy Belated International Women's Day! Sorry we forgot to post, we were busy celebrating by... wait, how do you celebrate it again? Maybe the tabloids can help us figure it out. Plus, Emily Ratajkowski Nails the Mid-Winter Ab Reveal (or whatever that means) and Farrah Abraham (yes, that one) is Penthouse's new book critic.

First came Goop. Then came Preserve. Preserve died, but Goop thrived. And now, finally, we have Poosh. What is Poosh? Your guess is as good as mine, but it has something to do with Kourtney Kardashian sitting naked on a bathroom counter while drinking tea and typing on her laptop. Is that helpful? No? Oh well. Also on today's episode, the pre-Pose work of Billy Porter (Broadway Them, real-world Who), Wendy Williams' frustrating return to television, and whether or not Samoas and Tagalongs are Whos or Thems.*As always, call in at 619.WHO.THEM with your questions and comments, and don't forget to support us on Patreon for a jam-packed weekly newsletter and fortnightly bonus episodes!
Congratulations to Bre Tiesi-Manziel and her friend Khloe for running the fastest half marathon ever! They literally broke the world record! Oh wait, hold on...Scratch that. I guess the two runners cheated in the Run Like a Diva half? Damn. At least Rami Malek got that Mandarin Oriental #spon (Did it turn him back to a Who?) And speaking of iconic #spon, Bebe Rexha's Lay's remixes are here and they are incredible. *crunch, crunch* Plus, Gemma dumps her boyfriend for filming her snoring and Priyanka Chopra (allegedly) writes (maybe) an email (this is fan fiction). Come see us in Detroit and Chicago this weekend! Tickets for sale right here.
Who's There: T-Pain & Miranda Lambert vs. Saddle Tramp Brand?
We're almost too excited to talk about the comments we answered on today's episode, because leatherworker extraordinaire Saddle Tramp Brand (Breann Beasley) called in to talk about the journey that turned her into the foremost Miranda Lambert Truther on the internet. BUT BEFORE THAT, we take comments about Rami Malek's Them status, Aaron Carter's disrespectful Google search, the Ferrero family, and T-Pain's Masked Singer triumph.BUT COME ON, THIS IS ALL ABOUT SADDLE TRAMP BRAND! Follow her on Instagram @saddletrampbrand and buy her leather goods here!!
We've saved two very, very important topics for today. First: Oscars! Second: Jordyn Woods! I know, you're already foaming at the mouth ready for our hottest takes. Is there anything even left to say? (Plus, Mr. "Hot Cop" Lambert updates, Shookus is back and why we can't stop talking about Michael Bolton.) Give us an hour and we'll give you your lifeeeeeeeeeee.
Who's There: Nate Silver & Sarah Huckabee Sanders?
Don't let the title worry you, this is not a political episode. We just had to mention our shoutout on the 538 Politics Podcast (Nate Silver, Who, thinks our podcast seems "fun") and the iconic dot Sara Huckabee Sanders left on her Notes App announcement that her boss was about to declare a national emergency. Nightmare!!! But enough about them. We also take calls about Lee Radziwill, Zedd fans, Lizzo, the truth about Body Vibes, and what the HELL is going on with Wendy Williams. There's also a long rant about Pauly Shore, and I don't even remember why!!!One more thing: Richard Kind is NOT a Them. Come on.
Why the now-iconic, now-viral Meghan Trainor press release that's going around the web might be even more familiar than you think, why Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Skarsgard let Architectural Digest into their Brooklyn home to see all 14,000 of their fireplaces, why Miranda Lambert revealed she married a hot cop only days after she dumped salad on someone in Nashville (and why did Busy Phillips have the inside scoop on it all), why Brody Jenner was lucky to be alive after a hoverboard accident, why Blac Chyna and Soulja Boy are a match made in heaven, why Avril Lavigne's new'ish boyfriend is a billionaire('s son) and why the New York Times decided to drag Lee Radziwill in her very own obituary. All those questions answered, and more! Plus Rita! Damn, what a steal.Don't forget to call in with your own questions and/or comments at (619)-who-them. Come see us on tour! And for bonus Who?

"I do my hair toss, check my nails. Baby how's this episode? It's good as hell." Wow, I instantly regret trying to repurpose Lizzo lyrics for use in this show description! So let's get through this as quickly as possible. Today on Who's There: calls about Greta Van Fleet, Lisa Vanderpump, Lizzo, scammy stickers, and how Adrienne Bailon Houghton likes her tuna sandwiches. We even take a call about Alita: Battle Angel! If only Lindsey knew who she was. Oh, I almost forgot: this is also the episode during which Bobby realizes he's a Zedd stan.

It's post-Grammys, and we're talking the most Who? category aka Best New Artist—yes, there is a game. Rexhars, come get your girl because she's going off on an audience that doesn't know the lyrics to "Meant to Be" (hh, have you been in a CVS lately?) Dina Lohan is probably getting Catfish'd, Meghan Trainor walked down the aisle to her own song (of course she did), the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are at it again (in ways we can barely understand), Prince Phillip finally gave up his driver's license (thank god), American Media and the National Enquirer are now getting called out by Jeff Bezos (oh boy), Sean Penn writes a op-ed that no one asked for (other than Bradley Cooper, maybe) and Gus Kenworthy lands a roll that doesn't involve the Olympics. Now if we could only remember his sport... Come see us on tour! And for more Who? Weekly content, subscribe to our Patreon. There's a weekly newsletter, extra episodes, and so much more.
We have spent so much time talking about The Wife on this podcast that it's sort of surprising that it took us this long to mention Pip, aka The Wife's Son. Did you know Glenn Close has a dog named Sir Pippin Close, aka Pip? And, if so, did you know he has his own Instagram account? Well you do now, so follow it. But this episode isn't just about Pip Close (as much as we'd like it to be), there's also chatter about Michael Bolton falling asleep on an Australian morning show, Jennifer Lawrence's now-FIANCÉ Cooke Maroney, and comments about Enigma (Rita was there) and Ariana Grande's tattoo (it was worse than we thought). Then, duh, a round of Who or Them. Did I mention I'm writing this while watching Gaga's Super Bowl Halftime performance? Because I am. Come see us on tour! And for more Who? Weekly content, subscribe to our Patreon. There's a weekly newsletter, extra episodes, and so much more.
Back from our west coast jaunt (plenty more dates on sale to come see us live!), we're exhausted but ready to discuss the Hottest Whos in the game. For example: Super Bowl? Anyone? No? OK! How about Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale holding hands while leaving the club? And Halsey's West Hollywood date with a British guy named Yungblud? Speaking of Brits, have you heard that 21 Savage might be one? (Fuck ICE!) And the World Record Egg was cracked. (Fuck EGG!) Plus, why Caitlyn Jenner can't launch a skincare line because of her dang daughters, and Liam Payne and Naomi Campbell are defffffinitely hooking up. Finally, the Fiji Water Girl is suing (yikes) aaaaand Rita should've done the Super Bowl Halftime show. OK FINE WE SAID IT! Come see us on tour! And for more Who?

This episode is wild. From Sliding Doors chatter (AGAIN?? Will it ever end???) to Jason Mraz's Build-a-Bear, to our RENT LIVE thoughts, to why every person of a VERY specific demographic is listening to Maggie Rogers, to whether or not someone named Jenson Ackles is a Who or a Them.

Did we record this podcast before the airing of RENT Live!?* Yes, sorry, but we'll weigh in later this week, promise. We're talking Oscars—specifically A Star is Born's wild campaign) and SPEAKING OF: Andy Cohen's ASIB-themed baby shower featuring almost every Housewife...except Lisa V. & Bethenny F.? Meanwhile, Kristen Stewart's new girlfriend's blog is definitely worth a look, and we're obsessed with our new favorite influencer: Mary. Yes, The Virgin Mary. (Thank you @Pontifex!) Plus, why Prince Phillip needs to get off the road and R.I.P. Megan Barton Hanson and Wes Nelson's relationship and, probably, their hamster. Oh ya! Remember when Rita was on Drag Race? We do. *Lindsey says that Vanessa Hudgens is Italian. That is not true, and she regrets the error. Come see us on tour! And for more Who? Weekly content, subscribe to our Patreon.

Another call-in episode! Look, we didn't expect to make so many references to Sliding Doors when first mentioning it, but this is the way podcasts go. We roll with the punches: we listen to angry calls about blonde Gwyneth, we reference Jean Tripplehorn, we talk about falling down the stairs—multiple times. But enough about Sliding Doors! Today's episode introduces us to Suge Knight's son (who is now claiming Tupac is alive), catches us up with Keri Hilson (she's fine, and in a new movie with Kelly Rowland), and recaps the Fyre Fest documentary that starred Andy King, the Michael Clayton of the Fyre Fest universe. Oh, and we talk about celery juice, matcha, and Scott Foley. Questions? Comments? Call 619-WHO-THEM.
What do a Las Vegas ventriloquist named Terry Fator and Kardashian attic ghost Rob have in common? Well, nothing really other than: DARKNESS. We'll get into it—how Rob's DM-sliding has Blac Chyna throwing drinks at his new WCW, Alexis Skyy. And how Summer Bunni (remember her?) fits into all of it. There's Jessica Simpson's "swollen piggies", Milania Giudice's new (age-appropriate) bop, Patti Clarkson's fight against "fake news" (thanks to her PR team) and Love Island's Megan Barton Hanson feud with her boyfriend Wes Nelson's Dancing on Ice skate partner, Vanessa Bauer.

It's Who? Weekly's 3rd anniversary—can you believe it? To celebrate, we'll take your calls about finally recognizing Nina Dobrev, James vs. Josh Charles, and why Molly Sims attends every award show. (The answer will not surprise or shock you!) Plus, Caroline Calloway... yes, finally. And herbs. And Gigi Hadid vs. Postmates. And Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club. It's all happening. Come see us on tour!

Today's Who? Weekly covers oft-ignored categories of Wholebrities: helicopter pilot Whos, alien Whos, and Whos surrounded by protective shells that are susceptible to cracking. I am, of course, talking about Lauren Sanchez (the girlfriend of Jeff Bezos), Jeanine Mason and Nathan Parsons (aka the stars of Roswell, New Mexico), and World_Record_Egg (aka the most-liked Instagram photo of all time). Also featured on today's episode: Tom Hardy's affinity for Forrest Gump, Katherine Schwarzenegger's upcoming presidential run, and the WORST two songs on Rita Ora's Phoenix.

This week we answer calls from teens(!) and Australians(!) and we talk about teens and Australians. Two of our favorite topics, honestly. First, a YouTuber named Emma who may or may not be dating another YouTuber named Ethan (...Dolan. Remember him?) We learn why exactly Iris Apatow was at Taylor Swift's NYE party, what hy-ya-luron-nic acid actually does, (no thanks to Eva Longoria!), and what's going on with Allison Williams. Rosario Dawson and Senator Cory Booker: are they a thing? New Jersey needs to know. Plus, the origin story of "Come to Brazil" (we're coming!!!!) and a FIRE ROUND of Who or Them. Come see us on tour!

I don't know about you, but I completely forgot the Golden Globes were happening until like 4 hours before the Golden Globes started. This meant every big surprise was especially surprising because, you know, I never had the chance to build up and then lose my excitement for the night. So when Patti won, I screamed! When Glenn won, I screamed harder! And when the Fiji Water Lady revealed herself, I sold everything I owned and moved to the woods in order to isolate myself from society and write a great American novel about the Fiji Water Lady. Where was I? Not sure. Speaking of "not sure," who is Dannemora? Why does someone named Kominsky have a method? And is The Wife a Them now? All those answers–and plenty of hyaluronic acid–can be found in today's episode.

Who's There: Abigail Anderson Lucier & 'The Masked Singer'
Taylor Swift's Halloween meets New Year's Eve party: Was it fun? You'll have to ask one of the 5-7 people who we can confirm were there, including: Her pal Abigail, Gigi, Ryan & Blake, someone's agent, someone's stylist and...Joe Alwyn? (STILL UNCONFIRMED). Most important, there was a very lonely cheese plate. Plus, a story about Wendy Williams that you definitely need to hear, a brand new show on FOX that has us in love with reality singing competitions again, some tips on how to explain influencers to your confused boss and a brand new WHO/THEM LIGHTNING ROUND: Rachel Weisz? John Boyega? Jennifer Tilly? Sandra Oh? Abbi & Ilana? William H. Macy??????

Can you believe 2018 is over?! And more importantly, can you believe we're still doing this after almost three years?! I can't. But enough about time, there are Wholebrities to discuss, and 2019 looks to be a banner year for them. On today's episode, we discuss one iconic celebrity BFF who has decided not to mind the gap, what Titanic and Sofia Richie have in common (sort of), the most shocking breakup of 2018, and Ashanti's "Foolish" obsession with a very specific deodorant brand. We even take a minor detour into the world of politics by way of a more palatable subject: mac & cheese.
Finally, we play everyone's favorite (???) game: Last Weekly. Happy New Year, y'all! May it be as fabulous as Harry and Sally's. Fun fact: we cut like half an hour from this episode for the sake of keeping it under 45 minutes long, but those segments will be in the next Patreon episode.
It's time for the 3rd annual Who, Me? Awards, presented by Dropbox and Outdoor Voices (truly), all our pals over at Patreon and Y-O-U. Yes, you! Our end of the year extravaganza (Oscars, who?????) is a look back at 2018: the Whos, the Thems, the misguided weekly segments (R.I.P. This is Not a Westworld Podcast)—everything that's made us Think and Feel and LOL. So slap on your award show glam and join us for our version of Hollywood's Biggest Night. Or, you know, WHO-llywood's Biggest Night. Close enough.

In this week's Who's There, we spend far too much time discussing the trailer for the new Men In Black movie (it's called Men In Black: International for some reason) after which we discover the following things: Camryn Manheim is a John Mayer fan. Camryn Manheim's real first name is Debbie. The Love Advent Calendar STILL exists, it just rebranded. Jack Dorsey didn't fulfill his side of a bargain with Azealia Banks. The LMFAO boys are uncle and nephew. Ian Somerhalder loves visiting Fern Gully.
In other words, it's business as usual. Oh snap!

What do Julie Andrews' step-granddaughter and Malin Ackerman's new, 'floating' husband have in common? Well, nothing, other than the the fact that they are BOTH in this brand new episode of Who? Weekly. Who else? An entirely new (and honestly, terrifying) segment called Yikes yikes yikes yikes yikes yikes. The #truth about a tipsy fan who confused "confused" Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta. Remy Ma and Papoose welcome their 'Golden Child'—finally! Why January Jones ex gave her a necklace made out of...her own...dog's....baby....teeth??? Blac Chyna loses her license or something, and did Mr. & Mrs. Bieber both get lice? Well, you'll just have to listen to find out.

Before we begin, let's get this out of the way: Vox Lux Sux. Don't see it. Don't! Or see it! Whatever. We aren't a movie podcast. We're a Wholebrity podcast, so let's move on to this week's calls, which cover a Love Island breakup (and speedy reunion), Shakira's spiral into alleged Who crimes, Camryn Manheim's son Milo, the iconic URL Camryn Manheim secured, Camryn Manheim's to The Net, the woman Chloe Grace Moretz was spotted smooching, whether Regina Hall is a Who or a Them, Hallmark movies about mail, and – dun dun dun – why Teri Hatcher was at George H.W. Bush's funeral. Enjoy!

*Chandler voice* Could this episode BE any longer? Lucky you, this one's filled to the brim with everything you need to know about the celebrities you don't. What do you need to know? That Miranda Kerr is in position of a 'stolen' crystal baby grand piano, given to her by a Malaysian scammer. That Kirk Cameron ran his sister Candace (Cameron Bure) over with a go-kart. That the Golden Globes nominees were announced and there were so many Whos: Denzel's son, someone from Degrassi, 2 Maisels and Olivia Colman! That the Love Advent Calendar has gone MISSING. That Patrick Dempsey is selling his wife Jillian's vibrating gold facial bar on Instagram????? That a Bachelor contestant already released a Notes app apology, and a DWTS showmance has already soured. That RHONY's Ramona is smooching the ex husband of another RHONY. That Pharrell loooooooves his AMEX. That we're playing a game called "Gossip Cop Cop" (you'll love it) and that Rita Ora is up to something. She always is!

Who's There: Summer Bunni & Jessica Simpson's Word Processor?
You know how we always get things wrong? It's part of our charm. (We hope.) But sometimes you, our beautiful, loyal listeners *also* get things wrong. Case in point: the two calls we got from our listeners who thought Toni Braxton was dating Michael Keaton. (She's dating Birdman the co-founder of Cash Money Records, not Birdman the character from the terrible movie of the same name.) But let's not start off on the wrong foot: this week's VERY fun episode covers things we got wrong about Taissa Farmiga and Jameela Jamil + a bunch of other new topics, including: Lukas Haas, the film Witness, a woman named Summer Bunni, and–most importantly–the fake feud between two Thems (Jessica Simpson and Natalie Portman) and one Who (the app Jessica Simpson used to start it).

Aminatou Sow and Shani Hilton are BACK and we have so much to catch up on. For example, why is everyone turning on Jameela Jamil? (I thought we liked her? Is airbrushing illegal now?) And who is Nazanin Mandi, Miguel's new wife? And our very own Royal Correspondent (who happens to be Shani) answers the tabloid's #1 question of the month: Are Kate and Meghan really feuding? Is this all a stunt? Are we as infatuated with Nick Jonas and Priyanka "Quantico" Chopra as the rest of the world seems to be? Plus, Toni Braxton on Jada Pinkett Smith's 'Red Table Talk' and...more Halsey—so many of the same topics we can't stop talking about that we...completely forget to introduce new Whos. Oh well! You'll love it anyway. Special thanks to BuzzFeed and Camila Salazar for production help.

Today on Who's There, our weekly call-in show, we answer a variety of questions about people (like Stacy Keibler), places (like tanning salons), things (the Hollywood Reporter Actress Roundtable), and animals (like Olivia the dog). We also threw in a call about Elizabeth Debicki, about ten rapid-fire "Who or Them" inquiries, and several minutes talking about a little film called The Wife. You're so welcome.

Emily Ratajkowski wants to know why people focus on what she's wearing. (Maybe it's because she's a model, but what do we know!!) Princess Beatrice wants to hang out with new boyfriend, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi (although his ex-fiancé might not be so into it) and Neil Patrick Harris does not want to hang out with DWTS winner, Bobby Bones. Nico Tortorella and 'spouse' want to spend Thanksgiving naked, and Paris Hilton wants to spend Thanksgiving away from her now-ex-fiancé, Chris Zylka. (Zylka wants to spend his acting.) Kelly Dodd wants to bang chocolate-cover cherries, and Brooke Shields wants to give you some 300 year old salad dressing. Tom Holland? Well, he just wants to eat pumpkin. And Rita Ora? She wants you to know that her new album, Phoenix, is out! Finally!
It's the most wonderful time of the year: deranged-yet-entirely-watchable Hallmark/Lifetime/Netflix Christmas movie time! In today's very special episode (Who's There will return next Friday), Lindsey and Bobby discuss the Vanessa Hudgens/Vanessa Hudgens masterpiece The Princess Switch, and play two games based on this season's slate of basic cable cheer. These films prove Candace Cameron Bure and Lacey Chabert are the two most talented people in the biz.

Have you seen Jonathan starring Ansel Elgort & Ansel Elgort? How about The Christmas Switch starring Vanessa Hudgens and Vanessa Hudgens? Have you heard about Hobo Johnson? (Probably not, but your teenaged kids/pals have.) Did you know Frankie Muniz's house was flooded because his cat successfully pawed at the faucet? Or that Tamar Braxton abruptly quit Snoop Dogg's play mid-performance because she wasn't delivered her sandwich? Maybe you knew that Hailey Bieber (yes, she's Bieber now!) accidentally followed a Selena Gomez fan Instagram account. Oops! Or you RT'd Armie Hammer when he went off on celebs performatively mourning Stan Lee...If you didn't, where you been? Don't worry we'll catch you up. (What you won't hear is a cut segment on Alexandra Daddario, that is, UNLESS you're Patreon supporter.)
It's call-in time! Oh, how we love hearing all your beautiful voices. (Most of the time.) Just kidding! Just kidding. Honestly, the only time we groan is when you call about Alexandra D'Addario. OK, stop me before I truly go off on a tangent. This week, the commenters discuss the many crimes of Grindelwald (or whatever those bankers are called), defend Kaitlyn Bristowe's honor, and introduce us to a woman named Asia who was only in the Pussycat Dolls for like seven seconds. Later, we dig into Calum Turner and his obvious path towards stardom, Debi Mazar's interaction with a ghost who boiled her turtle, and Leah Remini's appearance on our favorite Who-y talkshow hosted by a Them: Red Table Talk. Oh! And then there's Michael Stuhlbarg. Is he a Who? A Them? You'll just have to listen.
Call 619.WHO.THEM and we might address your comment/question on the next show!
Three songs enter the ring: Ashley Tisdale's "Voices in My Head," Cheryl's "Love Made Me Do It" and Dinah Jane's "Bottled Up" and only one leaves. Annnnd what exactly did Noah Centineo say to one of the writers from Busy Tonight? (I guess, more like, what did he not say to her?) Plus, Mark Wahlberg's wife Rhea is a blogging and bag-making legend who hates when her kids play Fortnite (but loves Dunkin Donuts!) and what happens when a Big Brother star rams her car into her baby-daddy's new girlfriend's Honda? Oops! Shadowhunter's won the People's Choice Award for 'Best Show,' but do you know what won 'Most Hypeworthy Canadian'? Did you know that was a category? Ezra Miller's goats, Kailyn Bristowe's new ex-fiancé and why Pusha-T thinks he's fooling us. Pusha, you're not fooling us!!!! Nice try!!!!
Lindsey and Bobby are more than happy to write an ensemble romcom called "ELECTION DAY" that can take place in the Gary Marshall (R.I.P.) universe, so please give us that chance. Moving on, we take calls about Hennessy Carolina's role in Nicki/Cardi's feud, a new show called Kevin Can Fuck Off (will we sue? maybe), why Danielle Jonas couldn't attend Priyanka Chopra's bachelorette party, "Ricky" from "Thank U, Next," Rami Malek (Who or Them?), Vanessa Hudgens, Vanessa Hudgens's fake Netflix twin, and a Trump-loving former Pussycat Doll named Kaya Jones. Oh my GOODNESS, this episode is jam-packed! Some might call it... The Greatest Show.
Comments by Celebs? (ft. Julie Kramer & Emma Diamond)
If you listen to Who? Weekly, you know that one of the things that we are just fascinated with is the changing dynamics of celebrity reporting. Sure, we'll love Us Weekly and the Daily Mail forever—where are the cool and new and even strange places that people are getting their Who? news. Well, today on the pod we've got one of those places. It's your favorite Instagram account: COMMENTS by CELEBS. Co-founders Julie Kramer & Emma Diamond tells about #thealgorithm and which celebs might be sucking up to them with their quips? ;) Oh and they've got a podcast, too, so check that out.
Today on Who's There, we answer these deeply important questions: What REALLY happened to PeteAndAriana fan Instagram? Who was missing during the Today show Halloween spectacular? Who will light Tinashe's candle? Why do people suddenly care about Little Mix? Is Zoe Kravitz a Who or a Them? At what point does being in the New York Times Crossword mean you're a Them? (Hint: U.K. Singer Rita)
Boo! It's a very spOooOOooOOOoky episode of Who? Weekly—just in time for Halloween (or, uh, WHOlloween!), which may be our favorite (w)holiday because no one loves a costume more than a celeb. We're celebrating All Hallow's Eve with some dead stuff: the unlucky soul given the axe (murder?) by Modern Family and the Whos of Netflix's Sabrina. (Plus, why Lindsey never wants to talk about pop star, Kim Petras!) We'll also celebrate by broaching some of the very dark topics we would much rather avoid: Queer Eye Antoni's new boyfriend, Casey Anthony's new boyfriend, whatever's going on with Jersey Shore's Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley, Joy-Anna Duggar, Teen Mom's Jenelle Evans (and her husband, David). Finally: a game! Did Julianne Hough do blackface again? You'll have to listen and find out. P.S. Did you know we have a Patreon now? Come get some extras.
Boy, do we have some catching up to do. First, R.I.P. GRANDSON. Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are no more...just as Bobby predicted. They weren't the only ones at the center of bad news: Diddy and Cassie called it quits after 11 years, Tinashe got voted off Dancing With the Stars (!!!) and Joe Giudice is reportedly getting deported (you know, after he gets out of jail.) There was also good news: Meghan Markle announced her pregnancy... on Eugenie's wedding day (oop), while Gaga got engaged to named Christian Carino (memba him?) and Jessie J is dating CHANNING TATUM. Holy shit. Strap in.
Does Helen Mirren Know Who Busy Philips Is? (ft. 'I Don't Know Her')
Just because someone is on a vacation, doesn't mean we stop bringing you the best Wholeb entertainment in the whole damn world!!!! Today we have THREE games for you—one around the best Twitter account on the web, that's right, @KLGandHoda ('Hoda or No-da?') and another to celebrate Bella Thorne's 21st birthday (Good form!!! We think.) Then, no Very Special Games Episode would be complete without multiple rounds of 'I Don't Know Her', in which ask questions like, 'Does Helen Mirren KNOW who Busy Phillips is?' and 'Does Dakota Johnson know who Ally Maine* is?' As far as What RIta's Up To? You'll have to hold on til next week ;)
*Not a real person.
After providing definitive (or not-so-definitive) proof that Dakota Johnson is (or isn't) pregnant and sharing a selection of the many, many, many calls we received about A Star Is Born, we take on some of the week's biggest questions, like: Is "The Cure" an Ally song? Did you know "Halsey" is a jumble of another name? What is Kat Dennings up to, and why does it involve a binder? Where is Charlotte Church? And, finally: Is Dr. Aida Tekla a real person?
The day has finally come. The final "Bradley Cooper Presents 'A Podcast Segment is Born' Starring Lady Gaga' because IT'S TRUE! we've seen A Star is Born. Did we love it? You'll have to tune in to find out. You'll also have to tune to find out why Meghan Markle's sister was in England, how Sully Bush ruined Barb's wedding, why the New York Times is still talking about Neri Oxman, which former Cheetah Girl got married at Wayne Newton's house, whether Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson are expecting *eyes emoji* and who K. Michelle is (and why her doorbell is iconic.) We've got that hair. body. face. for you!
This week on Who's There, we accept several calls about Lil Xan's hot Cheetos saga, and why it probably wasn't exaggerated in the slightest! (Hot Cheetos are no joke, per MORE THAN ONE doctor!) Moving on, two sort-of-French young actors are dating... maybe! But maybe not. Can you guess them? Next up, ANSEL is TONY, but who will be Maria? Unclear. Then we spend some time talking about Gisele Bündchen's fraternal twin sister Patricia, and what we suspect her #1 job is, thus leading us to the new term Bündchen's Münchkins.
JUST THREE MORE SLEEPS! ...Until we see A Star is Born. What else even is there to talk about? Oh, right: Saturday Night Live's full pivot to Pete Davidson Night Live, a bunch of YouTubers giving apologies again and again and (really!) again. Rashida Jones' 'secret' pregnancy with the guy from Vampire Weekend (and other 'secret' pregnancies, and why we're putting 'secret' in quotes.) Plus, devastating news about JWoww (Jennifer Farley) and her hubby, Roger (Matthews)—divorce! Why Elon Musk's drama goes alllll the way back to Azealia Banksand why Grimes might be an undercover agent? (Just a conspiracy we're trying to start, sorry.) DID YOU KNOW Jordin Sparks is a Pokémon fanatic from wayyyyy back and do you think she's more famous than Eevie? Plus, Joe Alwyn. Yep: Joe Alwyn.
Another episode of Whhhhhhhhhhhhh.....?
Whooooooo's?? Whoooooooo's Thhhhhhhhhhhhheeeeeee???
Who's There! Who's There. You got it! This week, we get into a surprisingly heated and impassioned discussion about Dunkin' (nee Dunkin' Donuts), which is followed by a delightful call about Tinashe's "amazing" first performance on DWTS. Later, we answer calls about FKA Twigs' intercom (and new ex-wife(?) Mia Goth's MIA status), our new queen Gritty (who should definitely do drag), Tory Lanez and his many quickly extinguished feuds, as well as the sudden spike in art that either: A. begins with "The Good," or B. is about Drew Barrymore. What's up with that?
Do you love pears? Well, you'll be happy(?) to hear that actress and Known Pear Lover, Amy Smart, is the new spokesperson for USA Pears and she is doing her very best to represent pears while also selling her own brand of 'smart' mattresses. Yes: mattresses. Kourtney Kardashian isn't selling her own brand of mattresses, but she is dating her sister's 20 year old friend-slash-model-slash-actor, Luka Sabbat, or so says a source to Us Weekly. Vietnam's version of The Bachelor had a fun twist, and speaking of bisexuals, E! across the pond is getting a "bisexual Love Island" hosted by Celebrity Big Bro winner, Courtney Act. Plus, Kelly Ripa does NOT eat her fingernails and RITA RELEASED THE FIRST SINGLE OFF HER NEW ALBUM, PHOENIX.
Well, well, well. What did you call in about this week? Lucky us, you wanted just the Good Stuff from The Emmys, like: Is The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel actually any good? And: Is Issa Rae a Who or a Them? Plus, non-Emmys things, like: Who are all these women in this incredible Cher music video? (Yep, that IS Betty Who.) And do we really have to pronounce Ariana Grand-dee and Chrissy Tie-gen's names correctly? Wait, who was that model that went into labor at the Rihanna fashion show? Plus, Is Allison Williams missing?
While typing this description I realized we forgot this week's segment of Bradley Cooper's A Podcast Segment Is Born starring Lady Gaga, so for that... we apologize. Oops. What we remembered, however, is considerably more interesting.
Did you know Tinashe is going to be on Dancing With the Stars this season! We're so excited, but worried she won't find room for the fire truck. Other topics: Fan Bingbing (still ?????). Post Malone (cursed). Zachary Bagans (the guy responsible for cursing him). Richard Gere's decades-long friendship to the Dalai Lama (iconic). Alejandra Silva (pregnant). David Harbour (our new nemesis). Whether or not Nancy Sinatra (Them) knows Mark Burnett (Who).
NOTE: Today’s Caller You’re Doing Amazing Sweetie is absolutely iconic and worth your time… it’s also Piper Perabo-related.
Moving on, today’s calls are strangely Olivia Culpo-centric, with some new Whos peppered in—such as Bonnie Aarons (The Nun), Devon Windsor (the blonde model), Jenna Cooper (an unsympathetic Bachelor In Paradise contestant) and Jordan Kimball (a sympathetic Bachelor In Paradise contestant).
As always: call 619.WHO.THEM with your questions and concerns.
Let's get down to business. First: a Very Special Call about "A Star is Born" all the way from Toronto!!! Then, we break down the Cardi vs. Nicki fight and how it was maybe really all about someone else, a stiletto expert slash armed security officer named Rashidah Ali. Do you even know how devious former head of CBS, Les Moonves, is? We can't stop thinking about it (or Julie Chen, for that matter.) Plus, Olivia Wilde, Shane Black and...Jacob Tremblay? Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra "choose" a couple name we can get behind, KJ Apa watches The First Wives Club one, both Bobby and Lindsey watch 1-2 episodes of E!'s Ashlee + Evan and tell you if you should do the same. Plus, Rita nearly has a wardrobe malfunction.
This week on Who's There, we begin by finding out that fans of the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardobe movie DO exist (and they have THOUGHTS). Next up: an update on Fan Bingbing that features major Them Jackie Chan somehow?! Tax evasion is the real deal, y'all. Anyway, we go on to cover The Blonde Salad and her new husband Fedez (he's an Italian rapper), Vanilla Ice's experience on the Contagion plane, Contagion (the movie), Christina Milian and her husband M. Pokora, and, finally, a one-two punch of political news featuring Jameela Jamil and Piper Perabo.
Rate and review us on Apple Podcasts! THEN... rewatch Contagion. It's amazing.
The rumors are true! We're turning our A Star is Born fandom into a new segment called "Bradley Cooper Presents A Podcast Segment is Born Starring Lady Gaga" — for all your pro-A Star is Born, anti-First Man update needs. Will we do this for the entire month leading up to the movie's premiere? We literally can't help ourselves. We also can't help ourselves from talking about Noah Cyrus and Lil Xan (Oops and R.I.P.), a forced meme called #DoTheLilo, celebrities that attended Burning Man (mostly just Heidi Klum), Lala Kent's new fiancé (and the THAMPS-y jeweler who sold them her new ring), Halsey & Gerald, Dominic & Gemma, Teresa & Keef, the "job shaming" of Geoffrey Owens and...25 things you definitely didn't know about Shay Mitchell.
Lindsey's back from Africa, Bobby's back from watching The Wife starring Glenn Close and here we have a *brand new* episode of your favorite podcast (a date late, apologies!) What'd we miss? Well, (someone named) Lil Xan and (younger Cyrus) Noah Cyrus at the VMAs, for one. We missed a brand new hunk named Noah Centineo, star of To All The Boys I've Loved Before. We missed Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves getting kicked off Celebrity Big Brother for something scandalous. We missed Demi Lovato's former "drug dealer" talking to TMZ non-stop. We missed Instagram influencer Johnna Holmgren poisoning people with her foraging-based cookbook (now off shelves). And we missed what Meghan Trainor has in her bag! Plus, we missed you.
After over two years of Who's There, this is our FIRST TIME entering the archives for an entire episode.
So here's how it works: we listen to all of your calls every week (it's practically a full-time job), then narrow them down to our first round of favorites. Of those, we use roughly 75% for each episode of Who's There. But what about the remaining 25%?! This week, we revisit those great calls we've never answered, including ones about Laura Linney, Patricia Clarkson, Rupert Grint, Rodrigo Alves, The Wiggles, and...uh oh...Alexandra D'Addario.
Hey kids, how were the VMAs? We don't know because we're coming to you from the past with this week's episode—don't worry, we've got the "things people are talking about" otherwise: like Crazy Rich Asians! Sharp Objects! (lol) Sweetener!? Queen!? Kirstie Alley on the UK's Celebrity Big Brother! Are people still talking about Elon Musk and Grimes and Azalea Banks? How about the fact that Rita's the captain now? You'll see what we mean.
First of all, thank you to EVERYONE who came to our final show of 2018 last night at The Bell House in Brooklyn! It was incredible, as were our very special (dare I say iconic?) guests Mariah Smith, Orin Heidelberg, Matt Bellassai, and Jessica Williams! You all are the very best and we're so lucky to have had you!
But enough with the sentimental introductions. This week we take calls about the very intense love connection involving Denise Richards, Nicolette Sheridan, Lisa Rinna, Harry Hamlin, and (ahhhh) Michael Bolton. Then, we move on to questions about a fitness influencer/model named Tammy Hembrow (she collapsed at Kylie's 21st birthday, but don't worry, she's fine), Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson's new romance, and the world's #1 ASMR queen Life With MaK.
Call the hotline 619.WHO.THEM for comments and questions! **taps nails on seltzer can**
We start with a bit about AMI's David Pecker—the guy who owns not just Us Weekly, but our beloved Closer, plus In Touch, Life & Style, OK!, Star and Radar Online. Yikes. There's something fishy about the cover of another one of his pubs, Men's Journal, and we'll explain why. (Sorry about the politics talk, but sometimes we gotta dig in.) Plus, the weirdness around Denise Richards joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, "Liam's TWO Cheryl Lookalikes" (thx Daily Mail!), all of the teens we didn't know at the Teen Choice Awards, why St. Tropez is OVER and did Blac Chyna's caboose, well, vamoose?
“Men, we have a problem. We have to get these astronauts from this circle to that circle, and we only have 8 hours to do it.” Every movie about NASA has this scene, even ones starring Claire Foy! Oh, sorry for starting off his episode description with something confusing. Hmm. Let’s put things simply: today we talk about Lance Bass (again), bean bags (again), Vanessa Kirby, Ari Melber, Alexandra D'Addario (100th time's a charm), Maye Musk, Tracy Chapman, and a very famous actress named who may or may not be missing because of tax evasion.
Enjoy! And call 619.WHO.THEM.
UPDATE: Weird pauses have been fixed! Carys Zeta Douglas thought her father was a pancake maker; Hayden Panettiere thought her ex-husband, boxer Wladimir Klitschko, was a doctor (and he probably is); Nick Jonas thought his time at the St. Ives Mixing Bar in NYC was just about lotion; Kourtney Kardashian thought no one would notice she did #spon for the opening of a new sugar-filled Sugar Factory in Atlantic City (but, alas, we did.) Plus, which Spouse brother is attached to a Hungarian model, known for her past dalliances with the likes of Lewis Hamilton (race car driver) and Nick Jonas (lotion user.) All that and more (about Rita) on today's brand new episode.
Oh my GOODNESS we messed up on Tuesday. For the first time in Who? Weekly HISTORY, we forgot to tell all our lovely listeners what Rita Ora is up to! And after answering that age-old question, we move onto less important calls (just kidding, we love all your calls equally) about fantastic topics such as Joe LoCicero, Samantha Markle, Doug the Pug, Jonathan Van Ness, Dove Cameron, Finneas O’Connell, and -- drumroll please -- cold bean bag chairs. I promise it will all make sense in the end.
It's alright, it's OK: Ashley Tisdale is working on a new album. "It's official," she tweeted. But you know what's not (Instagram) official? Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra's rumored engagement! Sources say yes, it's true, but we say... Where are the receipts? We also say AHHHHHHHHH regarding a feud between two teenagers: Bhad Bhabie and JoJo Siwa. And we say AWWWWWW to news of a secret marriage between Michelle Williams (actress) and Phil Elverum (singer). Plus, Carole Radziwill is dropping out of Housewives, and VIcki Gunvalson loves her new face! Come see us in Brooklyn on August 16th at The Bell House!
So many calls this week! Or maybe the same number of calls as usual? Who knows. The point is, the calls are GREAT, and they cover incredible, essential topics like:Lily James' performance in Mamma Mia! Here We Go AgainBillie EilishJessica Keenan Wynn's (aka Young Christine Baranski's) performance in Mamma Mia! Here We Go AgainWill MalnatiThe utter bliss you feel after seeing Mamma Mia! Here We Go AgainRyan LochteThe genius of Ol Parker, director and writer of Mamma Mia! Here We Go AgainRita Ora (obviously)
...And we're back! Samantha Markle might be joining Celebrity Big Brother and Bristol Palin will be joining Teen Mom. (Set your DVRs immediately.) Adam Brody is allegedly a slumlord (allegedlyallegedlyallegedly) and Jill Scott's husband would like his fie hotel robes back please?????? Plus, Lindsey explains 'Love Island' and Elle Macpherson is literally dating the guy who started the anti-vaxxer movement? Elle!!!!!!!! No!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let's get the business out of the way up top: come to our LIVE SHOW next Tuesday at the Bell House! Tickets are available here (or on our website, WhoWeekly.us) and we PROMISE you a good time.
And now, today's episode of Who's There. This week, we take some very kind calls about 1. Tallulah Bankhead being disrespected, 2. Jerry O'Connell's show being renamed, and 3. a Very Important Black Who we forgot to elaborate on. Moving on to the newbies: Brazil's most iconic contemporary drag queen Pabllo Vittar, the girl who plays both young Amy Adams AND young Jessica Chastain (and probably young Bryce and young Isla if she's lucky) Sophia Lillis, and Croatia's president who is NOT Coco, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic.
Oh! And straws. Of course we talk about straws.
Call 619-WHO-THEM to leave a question/comment of you own!
First thing's first: TWO LIVE SHOWS IN NYC REMAIN THIS SUMMER (JULY! AUGUST!) IF YOU DON'T HAVE TICKETS, GET THEM! Now for today's brand new episode: Gerald (Eazy) & Demi (Lovato), Billy (Bush) & Sydney (formerly Bush), Tom (Sandoval) & Tom (Schwartz). Tim Tebow's new girlfriend is Miss Universe, AKA Cosmopolitan cover girl, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters. Henry Cavill made a boo-boo; Karrueche Tran made it into the pages of Paper magazine. Plus, we finally figure out who invented the Post-It.
Can you believe we're back to our regularly scheduled, non-Who-specific programming? As much as we loved talking about Bryce Dallas Howard for half an hour (we really could have gone on for at least a full day), it was time to answer a full set of calls—and your most recent ones have NOT disappointed. This week, we discuss Ryan Rottman, Jerry O'Connell's new talk show, the Whoiest star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and dig into the life of party/sunglass brand promoter, Dave Osokow--also known as DaveOPhilly. Here! We! Go! (Ale, ale, ale.)
Is Jay Cutler some sort of Sports Them? Maybe. But in his new co-starring role on Very Cavallari, he's most definitely a Who. Bobby quizzes Lindsey on E's newest reality show even though she didn't actually watch it. Plus, everything we missed while talking solely about Bryce Dallas Howard: Biebs & Hailey Baldwin, Katherine McPhee and her gay boys David Foster, Halsey and Gerald Eazy, Tinashé's love triangle (ft. Ben Simmons & Kendall), "Good luck on your blog", Lucy Hale and two guys, Cheryl & Liam...Oh my god, it's just too much.
You asked, and we delivered. Here's your special EXCLUSIVE all-T.H.A.M.P.S. episode. ICYMI: That's the term we made up for the people who orbit our favorite Whos, the Trainers, Hairstylists, Agents, Makeup Artists, Publicists & Stylists, everyone who makes the magic happens. (Yes, the magic.) We'll talk about some of the most notable. Who are YOUR favorite THAMPS? Did we miss anyone? Give us a call at 619-WHO-THEM.
619-WHO-THEM: Put that number in your phone if you want to comment on Lindsey's problem with idioms, Bobby's opinion of Steve Aoki (and DJs in general), ask about very old men who marry younger women famous for her involvement in a NYPD corruption scandal, and scrunchies sold by former Bachelor contestants.
The rumors are true: SCOTT EASTWOOD HAS A PODCAST! And, don't worry, we listened to (about) one episode. We'll share with you exactly what to expect from Clint's son's new endeavor. Plus, the final(?) chapter(?) of our Podcast Within a Podcast™, spoiler-free "This is Not a Westworld Podcast," because (THANK GOD) the second season of Westworld has come to a confusing end. Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie got married to the delight of Game of Thrones watchers, a "clingy" Australian named Jarrod Woodgate shilled for Heinz pasta sauce, Colton Haynes discovered Benihana, Aussie rag New Idea reported(?) that Scientology is trying to recruit Bindi Irwin, Katherine Heigl disrespected some gravestones and Chord Overstreet is STILL A WITCH.
619-WHO-THEM: That's the number you wanna call to air your grievances, state your Who/Them opinions and, most importantly, ask us who the HECK people are. This week we're tackling your calls about Tinashe's Instagram, a comedian(?) named Jenny Mollen, Jason Mraz's bi(?) sexuality, the stars of Netflix's Set It Up #notspon, Casa Zeta Jones' latest Instagram posts and Brazilian Thems. Do they exist? You'll have to tune in to find out.
Breathe a sigh of relief, because everyone's two favorite guests--Aminatou Sow and Shani O. Hilton--are BACK for another installment of Who Dat. They tell us everything we need to know about the [black] celebrities we don't, namely: Gloria James, Lambo, Tinashe, Pusha T, Ben Simmons, Corey Gamble, Doria Ragland, the Smith family, and, of course.........Chris Pine.
Emma Roberts and Orlando Bloom: Who or Them? We have two Wholigans calling in with some rather convincing arguments. Then, Drake reunites with his former Degrassi classmates (and guess who stole the spotlight?) and Neil Patrick Harris and Rachel Bloom continue their "feud"—made even more confusing, as NPH asks strangers to send him gifts on Twitter? We'll try and figure that one out. And Daisy Ridley (who?) is dating someone named Tom Bateman (whoooo?) Got something to say? Call us! 619-WHO-THEM.
It wouldn't be Who? Weekly without another episode of This Is Not A Westworld Podcast [cue the music], so today's episode begins with a brief recap of this week's installment of everyone's least favorite show about robots who are stuck in a maze in several timelines or whatever. AND there's a twist!
Next up: Rossworld -- as in Diana Ross! As in Evan Ross Katz! As in Ashlee Simpson! As in [scrapbooks]! (I promise this will make sense.) Then there's Teresa Giudice very orange new hobby, Hilary Duff's baby daddy (Matthew Koma) and his fun connection to a very special superstar, and a recap of all the DrAaAaAaAAAmmmAAAA that went down at the Tony Awards.
What's Rita up to, you ask? She wants to sleep with John Mayer. Relatable!
We're all busy people. So let's just get down to business: Cooke MaroneyLiza Koshy & David Dobrik (NOT Liza Minnelli and David Gest)Yolanda Hadid's rooster, RoccoEmma Roberts: Who or Them? A bit more on Pete (Davidson) & Ariana (Grande, duh) ..and that that damn Maroon 5 video
Today's episode is longer than usual, but for good reason: we spoke with Janina Gavankar. You might remember her as the friend to Duchess Meghan who tried to high five a palace guard at the Royal Wedding. Or maybe you remember her as Papi from The L Word! Or from her work in video games like Far Cry 4 and Star Wars: Battlefront! Or The freaking Mysteries of freaking Laura! But after this interview you'll probably remember her best as an iconic Who? Weekly guest.
Janina graciously shared stories about the road to the Royal Wedding, the importance of being in the ~~database~~ before a big event, and how the tabloids treated Meghan's friends after the engagement was announced. But beyond last month's soirée, she shares her contentment with being a Who, her involvement in the tech industry (did you know she was the first actor to join Twitter?!), her dream of joining the Blue Man Group (not to mention the EXTREMELY rude rule that is preventing her from applying), and gets real about why her beloved character may or may not be part of The L Word reboot.
So take a listen. She's not just a Who, she's a Wholigan.
Today's episode isn't quite ready yet, but that doesn't mean we're gonna leave you hanging! The people wanted another terrible edition of "This is Not a Westworld Podcast" and that's what you're gonna get. Oh god, how do you summarize a show you can barely understand? Tune in to find out! (And come back tomorrow for a brand new full length episode of Who? Weekly.)
We could spend this episode description telling you about the clip of Melora Hardin singing No Doubt. We could tell you about Rachel Leigh Cook's history as an audiobook narrator. Hell, we could tell you about Nick Jonas dating Priyanka Chopra! Or the wild drama surrounding Isaiah Silva and Sam Lutfi! But we're not going to tell you about all that.
No, we're going to focus on the fact that this episode is NOT a Westworld podcast. It just plain isn't! So please stop assuming that it is, even though we now have a weekly segment called This Is Not a Westworld Podcast.
Fresh off a glorious long weekend (Memorial Day, to be specific, for our international community!), the celebrities are at it again. Our new mainstay, Janina Gavankar told Town & Country magazine that she was passionate about her pal Meghan Markle's privacy...then spilled the beans. Bachelor alums Ashley I. (yes, her!) and Jared H. finally got together (for the #spon?) Jennifer Garner got some ants. Kim and Kanye went after Rhymefest. Plus, Niall (sp?) and Hailee (sp)? are maybe more than friends #nialee and Ramona Singer's ex-husband's ex-mistress opened up to...Becky in Boca?
Who's There: Jennifer Katharine Gates & James "Arg" Argent?
The theoretical giant red prop phone we call Who? is just ringing off the hook this week! So many good calls, and just not enough time. Here's a sneak peek at who you're talking about: Royal Wedding guests the Canadian Mulroneys (or, Mul-ROONEYS, as you claim), plus Janina Gavankar and The L Word and Casamigos. Plus, Sam Hunt? Why are Charlie Puth and Nasim Pedrad hanging out and why does the internet think Bill Gates daughter looks like Rachel Leigh Cook? Wow! What an action-packed show.
Beginning an episode without a Most Markleous Headline of the Week was rough, but you know what? We powered through anyway--mostly because there was Royal Wedding news to get through (hello Janina Gavankar!) so it didn't actually feel like our second-favorite recurring segment had ended. Anyhoo, this week, we talked about Canadian socialite (and Meghan's best friend) Jessica Mulroney and why her husband is a lot like Billy Bush, someone named Clayne Crawford who's feuding with a Wayans brother, and why you'll never be able to look at Flonase the same way again.
WOW: only one more sleep until the Royal Wedding! In celebration, we're answering your calls, which include queries like "Whyyyyyyyy is Grimes dating Elon Musk?" and "How could she?" and also things like "Why is Hilary Duff harassing her neighbor on Instagram Stories?" and "Who is that guy, anyway?" Plus, "Did you know Kevin Can Wait was cancelled?" and "Did you know 2009 Eurovision winner Alexander Rybek has an anger problem?" (Yes & yes, sadly.) Finally, "Why were David Foster and Fred Savage all at a Rob Lowe book event?" and "Do they know each other?" and "Who was that mystery blonde kissing Timothée Chalamet at Cannes?" and "Do you care?"
Today’s episode begins with the FINAL Most Markleous Headline of the Week and transitions into a VERY LONG SEGMENT ENTIRELY ABOUT THE WHOIEST ANNUAL SINGING SHOW ON THE PLANET: EUROVISION.
YES: Lindsey and Bobby flew to Portugal to attend.
NO: This isn’t spon.
YES: There’s also a Rita segment (because, yikes, “Girls” is a mess.)
There are only a few installments left of the Most Markleous Headline of the Week, and boy did one of Meghan's extremely rude half-siblings go for the gold this week. In other news: a part-time model and part-time LAPD officer named Tim Chung may or may not be the father of Kylie's baby (he's not), DJ Khaled refuses to pleasure Nicole Tuck, whom we somehow have never discussed until now, and the marriage of the century just ended in divorce. (Will someone please send Colton Haynes flowers on our behalf?)
We also play a fun game of The Blinds.
We have seasonal allergies and you have LOTS of questions about your favorite (and least favorite) Whos and Thems. Why does everyone hate Kristin Cavallari's new cookbook? (It's not for the reason you might think.) Brooke Burke and David Charmet get a divorce—but, wait, who are they again? Plus, Katy Perry meets The Pope and gets spiritual with her new-old boyfriend, also a new-old Who, Orlando Bloom. Finally: Who is Caitlyn Jenner's new gal pal, Sophia Hutchins and where did she come from? All that and more. OK, not much more, but definitely more.
ONLY THREE MORE WEEKS UNTIL THE ROYAL WEDDING! You can watch it LIVE at 7AM on SATURDAY, MAY 19 with YOUR FAVORITE PODCAST HOSTS (I'm talking about us btw) as part of this year's Vulture Fest. For ticket info, just check our feeds because you know we're going to promote the hell out of it.
Anyway, this week we discuss Meghan Markle's FIRST wedding of 2018: the one on Suits! Yep, she was written out of the show with a wedding. (We watched the episode, but still have no idea what Suits is about. I think something about lead? Whatever.) Speaking of weddings: ZANDY! LEA! THE GHOST OF COREY! Speaking of weddings again: WESTON CAGE! SOMEONE NAMED HILA ARONIAN! But enough about them, because our big story of the week is more important. Did you know Miranda Lambert's trail of exes is helping to create one of the most captivating current celebrity gossip stories? There are weird names for days, messy social media behavior, and cold calls to the out-of-the-loop FATHERS of certain parties. Who knew?
Do you have what it takes? Beauty, brains...and heart? That third dimension is what we're talking about today ft. the hearts of Michelle Williams (not that one) and her brand new controversial husband Chad Johnson (again, not that one). Oh, Jemima Kirke is selling Girls DVDs at her Brooklyn yard sale. Be sure to grab us one! Then there's The Ballad of TimmyThick, an Instagram star who may or may not be a Harvard sociological experiment? Plus, The Rock's girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, had a baby and since no one is putting in the real work to find out who this iconic Masshole is, well, we will.
We never thought we'd say this, but we're talking about Romee Strijd again. Don't remember Romee Strijd? Well, [WIND SOUND] she's an instagram model who [WIND SOUND] definitely loves wind energy and [WIND SOUND] may or may not love the environment. Also on deck this week: Meghan Markle was owned once again by people who screengrabbed all her now-deleted Instagrams, Paula Patton started dating a guy named Zach Quittman and he's already basically her manager, and Kevin McHale came out via Ariana Grande single. What fun!
Strap in, we have a dark episode for you today. Not quite spooky, but we dug into the online personas of a few teenagers and let's just say... WHERE ARE THEIR PARENTS? Bhad Bhabie, Woah Vicky and Lil Tay got in a fight(?) in Hollywood(?) and it was bleak. Also bleak? The Shorty Awards, where Adam Pally caused controversy. And John Cena and Nikki Bella's break up :( :( :( Not bleak? A new "secret" baby! Nicholas Hoult and Bryana Holly's! Plus, Cardi B's sister, Hennessey and a SCOOP about ScarJo's YummyPop.
We know you're all still talking about Beyonce's performance, but this is NOT the place for such Themmy conversation. WE are here to talk about Who-chella Queen Vanessa Hudgens, Instagram model Sommer Ray (who has an affinity for butt fringe), someone named Romee Strijd (she looks like literally everyone), and a host of other horrifically dressed Coachella attendees whose names I've already forgotten.
But it's not all palm trees and SPF this week. Did you hear about Pia Miller and her fiance, that guy who created a brand of macadamia nut milk? What about Eva Amurri Martino's Dunkin Donuts sponcon??? Or Olivia Munn's ACTUAL boyfriend, actor Alex Gonzalez????
NO??? Well, there's so much for you to learn. As Shania Twain says, life's about to get good.
Do you know what today is? It's FLAME FRIDAY! But it's not just any *ordinary* Flame Friday, it's THE FLAME FRIDAY THAT HAPPENS TO BE THE DAY TINASHE'S "JOYRIDE" DROPS! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. (Not that we've heard it yet.)
And now, the calls:
There are comments about Boss Baby and Jerry O'Connell, inquiries regarding the Whos in Khloe Kardashian's current drama, a question about Brad Pitt's new girlfriend Neri Oxman, a Who/Them about Tessa Thompson, and--this is a huge deal--a revelation about Anne Heche's love for one of the best and whoiest apps: Smule. You've got to listen to the end of this episode, folks.
R.I.P. the young relationship of Chloë Grace Moretz and Brooklyn Beckham—the heir to the Spice Girls fortune was spotted smooching some other lady in Los Angeles. Who else kicked the bucket this week? One of the Property Brothers (the hot one?) and his girlfriend, Jacinta. But there is good news in this world! Paul Hollywood met a bartender at his wife's birthday party and they moved in together. And Paris Jackson hung out exclusively with Chris Brown at her 20th birthday party. OK maybe there isn't any good news this week. Elizabeth Hurley's nephew showed up to Easter with a fresh knife wound....oh my god...and Shay Mitchell maybe never took any of her iconic #Shaycations at all????????? What is this world coming to???????????????
P.S. Don't forget to buy tickets to our shows at The Bell House! Do it!
First things first: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LINDSEY!
Second things second: LORDE AND JACK ANTONOFF WERE SUPER WEIRD AT THEIR LIVE SHOW, AND WE WERE BOTH THERE TO SEE IT IRL.
Remaining things third: Olivia Culpo's mom is nice, the French do not understand Mandy Moore, Marc Jacobs got engaged to an underwear model named Charly DeFranceso in a Chipotle to a flash mob, Jenna Dewan Tatum is now Jenna Dewan again, a straight man barely knows the difference between Kaley Cuoco and Haley Kiyoko, and Chris Pine's new girlfriend has a name we honestly can't remember.
Our first Tuesday episode (feels good!) and our 200th episode (feels really good!) on the same day? There must be something in the air...Maybe it's the spirit of ghost-Diana congratulating us as she prepares for Meghan's big day? (We'll have to see if the Psychic Twins can get us in touch.) Or maybe it's Leonardo DiCaprio's very first girlfriend who can speak! Her name's Camila Morrone and you won't BELIEVE who her "stepfather" is. Or maybe you will. Plus, Iain Lee fell in a well, Hot Felon and Chloe Green are PREGNANT and Kristin Kreuk definitely left that sex slave cult before they did anything totally bad. Ahh! Mandy Moore is waiting for us at the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, so we gotta run! Thanks for listening!
First of all, Sanaa Lathan is NOT a Who, especially to people who appreciate good romcoms and--as our caller says--are tomboy lesbians. But did she bite Beyoncé?! Maybe! We'll probably never know.
More questions: Who the hell is Michael Avanetti, are you attracted to him, and why is he friends with Patrick Dempsey? What band is Heidi Klum's new 28-year-old boyfriend Tom Kaulitz in? Why is Olivia Culpo famous? (Apart from being the best Instagram caption writer of all time?) All that + a beeeautiful Caller You're Doing Amazing Sweetie on this week's Who's There!
Can Lea Michele read? Is Candace Cameron Bure edgy? Will you remember the name "Baskin Champion" after this week? I'll let you mull over those pressing questions as you press PLAY on today's brand new episode of Who? Weekly featuring all of the above plus, the week's Most Markleous Headline and your thoughts on Paris Jackson and Cara Delevingne hook up? Does watching the iconic film Carol in bed mean you're in a gay relationship? Maybe. Oh, and Cressida Bonas! I just wanted to type her name.
There's a lot to cover today. Like, did you know Jerry O'Connell once ate clam chowder an airport at 5:30 am? While you digest that information, how about Aubrey O'Day's affair with Donald Trump Jr.? (We should've see the signs!) Plus, why would anyone buy Eddie Redmayne's watch of choice? And who attended the city hall nuptials of Nico Tortorella and Bethany Meyers ? (Hint: It was very private.) Bad news? Well, Fifth Harmony is no longer. Good news? Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) is going to be New York's next governor (if we're lucky.)
Big week, folks. Hahahaha, just kidding.
Jerry O'Connell (who may or may not have been cursed by Chord Overstreet's great great great great great great great great great great witch aunt back in the day) has been filling in for Wendy Williams all week, and plenty of fans have no idea who the hell he is. Understandable! He couldn't even get into the VIP area when he met his wife, Rebecca Romijn. (Formerly Romijn-Stamos.)
Meanwhile, Chord Overstreet may or may not be a witch, and now he's dating Emma Watson.
Oh, BENJAMIN MAISANI and Anderson Cooper broke up! (I don't know why his name is in all caps, but it was like that when I clicked paste.)
Plus, we play a game based on Logic's real name. Did you know he has five of them, including one number?
EXCLUSIVE: a Kevin Can Wait Update (alleged) that'll BLOW your mind (alleged)! Is that not EXCLUSIVE enough for you? How about Billy Magnussen: who is he and why is he everywhere? (EXCLUSIVE: we know why.) Also EXCLUSIVE? Teri Hatcher isn't homeless and she doesn't live in a van. (EXCLUSIVE: She has a YouTube series. Really.) Craving more EXCLUSIVES? Well, Katy Perry didn't kill a nun. She didn't! She didn't. And Jessie J (EXCLUSIVE) is still on that Chinese reality show.
Here's a weird one: today's episode begins with a chat about Dennis Quaid, the influence his girlfriend Santa Auzina is having on his style, and every time living legend Cloris Leachman has been a "grandma" in film. How did we get there? Honestly I don't even remember, but I do remember Leachman's nine most iconic character names ever. They are: The Elder AmyGrannyGrandma AlbertsonOld Woman on Plane and BusGrandmotherGrandmaGreat Gam GamGrandma MerleGrandma PalmerMemaw What else? Oh! Colin Firth's wife Livia Giuggioli has an alleged stalker, Olivia Munn is NOT dating her friend's ex-husband for the second time in two months, Farrah Abraham is dating Rebel Wilson's ex, and Rita Ora won a lawsuit.
Oh boy, today's Who's There? sends us on a deep, deep dive. First, Kim Kardashian's new "BFF", a woman named Marina Acton who appeared on her Instagram with a single to promote. Who is she? Where did she come from? (The answers will SHOCK YOU!) Plus, something called 138 Water that has all the celebs...accidentally posing for promo shots? Or are they being paid? And what even IS alkaline water anyway? (It's bullshit.) Oh, and the finale of The Bachelor happened and it was fully insane.
We were up late watching the Oscars (shout out to The Shape of Water and Jodie Foster's crutches!) so we're gonna keep this description short:Armie Hammer's wife (known Wholebrity/bakery owner Elizabeth Chambers) is suing a woman named Diana Roque Ellis.Nick Jonas may have fallen in love with a woman named Annalisa Azaredo. She has--hold on to your butts--brains AND beauty!!!!!Rita Ora started a fashion line called Roara.Watch Life Sentence Wednesday, March 7th at 9/8 central only on The CW.
Happy Thursday! Today's very special episode of Who? Weekly (jk they are all special) features topics like Bria Vinaite, who is she? And Eiza Gonzalez, who is SHE? Plus, Rachel McAdams' baby daddy, who is HE? (And is she even pregnant?) Is cloning Who-y or Them-y? (Or just an excuse to talk about Barbra Streisand again?) Could you name any of the Sex and the City love interest actors actual IRL names off the top of your head? Go!
Sebastian Bear-McClard & Lesley Manville? (ft. Richard Lawson)
OH MY GOD THE OSCARS ARE IN LESS THAN A WEEK!!!
Do we even care anymore? Ehh, SORTA--which is why we're only devoting 2/3 of the episode to this Sunday's big night. To help out, we have Vanity Fair film critic and award show expert Richard Lawson in to talk about the biggest Wholebrity nominees. Will Timothee Chalamet ever be a Them? What about Tiffany Haddish? Would Saoirse Ronan be a Them already if her name were Sarah? What the hell is a "boutique Who"?
Find out the answer to all these questions--plus an update on Emily Ratajkowski's new husband and the latest talent Rita Ora has shared with the world (changing clothes on a plane)--in today's episode.
619-WHO-THEM, let's answer your calls. Everything from Fergie's unusual National Anthem at the sports game (which? who cares!) to what actually happens on When Calls The Heart (which, don't worry, we'll never mention again.) Then: the Whos and Thems of Black Panther and the Whos (yes, just Whos) of Netflix's Queer Eye.
*Bobby originally called this show, "When Comes the Heart." We regret the error. Kinda.
Per usual, the tabloids did NOT do their due diligence upon learning that Amy Schumer got married to a Wholebrity chef named Chris Fischer, so it was up to us to find out everything we could about him. Sure, it's not much, but it's something. The most important thing we learned about Chris Fischer? He went to preschool in a literal chicken coop.
Moving on, even MORE relationship news. Justin Theroux ('roux' rhymes with 'no' not 'you') is now a Who once more, thanks to his recent split from Jennifer Aniston. (But were they ever actually married to begin with?) Idris Elba is engaged to a Canadian who may or may not have an Instagram account. And--oops, never mind--we cut the segment about Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart. (Lucky you.)
Later:Julianne Hough dyed her hair.Lori Loughlin is trapped in the 20th century.Tara Lipinski loves almond milk.Bethenny Frankel thinks basil, cilantro, and parsley are interchangeable herbs.Rita set a record.*
*tied a record
Who's There: The ShibSibs & Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir (ft. Margaret Lyons)
On this VERY SPECIAL Winter Olympics episode, we're changing things up by asking a real pro, Olympics expert and New York Times television critic Margaret Lyons to help field your calls because, well, we really don’t know anything about the Winter Olympics apart from “ADAM RIPPON IS OUR KING.” Lucky for you, Marge knows it all. Who to watch! What sports to DVR! Who we're going to be stanning for next week! Go team!
If you want to, we can save you... We can make you listen to us discuss things like Big Brother, Brody Jenner, Kristin Cavallari's new store, Camila Cabello's new boyfriend(?) and a brand new Who? Weekly enemy. Yes, we've decided to take on an enemy. Plus! A tweet from E! News that we're obsessed with (see above for a hint) and that time Lindsey saw Fifty Shades Freed.
619-WHO-THEM: Will we answer your call this? Well, did you call about [Armie Hammer's wife] Elizabeth Chambers-Hammer? How about Instagram model-slash-iPhone-game-spokesperson, Alexis Ren? Maybe we answered your call about the time you did virtual reality featuring the talents of Rachel Platten, or maybe it was one about Netflix's new raaandom feature film drop, Cloverfield Paradox (#notspon)? Plus, turns out you CAN die from pooping and the Nick Lachey curse continues!
Happy Day After Kylie Jenner Announced Her Baby On Super Bowl Sunday! This week, we are talking about Meghan Trainor's newest enemy, Jason Warrior, who got mad at her during an episode of The Four. (Do you know what The Four is? We don't.) Next up, Katherine Heigl got a coveted new job, Jonah Hill has a new girlfriend, and Princess Eugenie's future grandmother-in-law has some not-so-kind words to say about her fiancé.
And even though it's only February, we are pretty sure the Saga of Bekah Martinez (a.k.a. Bekah M. a.k.a. Rebekah Martinez) will be one of the most memorable Who stories of the year.
Who's There: Douglas Friedman & The Clermont Twins?
Honk honk! All aboard the Cincinnati trolley. It's me, 98 degrees guy Nick Lachey! I've done other things, too. But today I'm gonna tell you what the people are calling 619 WHO THEM to ask about. A brand new cast of America's first foray into Celebrity Big Brother? You don't say! Why didn't anyone call me. They certainly called such Whos as Mark McGrath and Ross Mathews! Next, the Claremont Twins...why? After that, Paddington 2? Thoughts? Plus, and celebs who meet on planes Josh Duhamel (him again?) does a Taco Bell ad. Oh! Some guy named The Fascinator. Who he? Next stop: Whoville. Stand clear of the closing doors.
It's not about the pasta, it's about Jack Antonoff's new girlfriend Carlotta Kohl.
It's not about the pasta, it's about this new Zandy Reich/Lea Michele conspiracy theory.
It's not about the pasta, it's about Taryn Manning's feud with Chaunielle Brown.
It's not about the pasta, it's about the Best New Artist nominees at the Grammys.
It's not about the pasta, it's about Rita Ora causing an asset avalanche.
Have you ever been as thoroughly moved as Bobby was while watching Jessie J perform "Domino" on a Chinese reality show? I bet not. We try and figure out why exactly she was there, plus: Malia Obama's new boyfriend(?), Rory Farquharson and a former YouTuber-turned-singer who made his Saturday Night Live debut. And how Nick Lacey cursed the city of Cincinnati's streetcars. (Oh! I almost forgot...Mark McGrath?)
The club isn't the best place to find a Wholeb so this 'cast is where you go! (Sorry.)
On today's episode, a risk analyst named Cherry Seaborn decides Ed Sheeran is the most rational decision for her, Dakota Johnson gets attacked by a skunk (or does she???????), Brandi Glanville gets mad at TMZ because of something Gerard Butler did, North Dakota keeps giving Josh Duhamel money, and an Okapi gets a name.
PLUS: Rita Ora released a new song, but it broke her winning streak. So did the fact that she gets kidnapped in the final 50 Shades movie.
Congratulations to PC Peterson (of NYC Prep) and Quentin Esme Brown (of idk) on their sexless marriage! The two got hitched in Vegas with Tiffany Trump as their flower girl and who else was in attendance? A bunch of other Whos you might've heard of! A totally normal and fun weekend activity, if you ask us. Plus, some Doug Jones "fish goss" and Selena Gomez's mom, Mandy, commented on Instagram, while Melissa Joan Hart sold turkey on HER Instagram. Oh! And January Jones is dating Nick Viall. From The Bachelor. Yep.
Nobody wants to be lonely, nobody wants to cry.
These Whos are longing to hold you, so bad it hurts inside.
Because we don't feel like rewriting additional lyrics from "Nobody Wants to be Lonely," let's just quickly run down this week's topics: Ricky Martin's new husband, Katherine Heigl's blog, a turkey named Mena Suvari, and--drumroll please--Seal being disrespectful towards Rita.
Still recovering from this past weekend's Golden Globes? So are we. (And so is literally every celebrity gossip mag.) It was a LOT—and don't even get us started on that Winona Ryder L'Oreal ad... Actually, you know what? Get get us started. We talk about the Globes—including The Ad and the women who didn't wear black, Blanco Blanco and Babara Meier (whose names will be forgotten soon enough), a new figure skater on the scene named Adam Rippon (who is already our personal favorite), the Bachelor Winter Games (????) and who was more popular in high school: Ansel Elgort or Timothee Chalamet. I think we all know the answer to this one.
We’re following last night’s mostly terrible (with the exception of Oprah’s speech and BLL/Lady Bird winning) Golden Globes with updates on two important romances we’ve yet to cover on the show: Laura Dern & Baron Davis, and Robin Wright and...uhhh we already forgot his name. Next up, the Whos of the Golden Globes, and a quiz about Mister and Miss Golden Glo—oh wait, they’re called “Golden Globes Ambassadors” now.
More Australian stuff, you say? Well, you're in luck! Today's Who's There? has not just one, but two, Aussie stories: an update on Olivia Newton John's "missing" boyfriend (we just can't get enough of this guy) and convicted drug smuggler turned pop star legend Schapelle Corby!!!!!!!!!!! Plus, non-Aussies like Paris Hilton's new fiancé, Chris Zylka, and Maria Menoudos' new fiancé, Kevin Undergaro.
It's time for the second annual Who, Me? Awards! (AKA the WhoMes!) Celebrate the new year (and nurse your hangover) with this special episode featuring an original song by Bobby, appearances from your favorites Whos (or not), a performance by Tinashe, and PLENTY of big prizes like Boyfriend of the Year, #SPON of the year, The Best Thing We Didn't Know About Her, and The Barbara Corcoran Entrepreneurship Award. We can't wait to introduce you to even more Whos in 2018!
Hello! We're back again with more of YOUR comments (Ed Sheeran: not Irish; Lil Pump; didn't go to Harvard) as well as YOUR questions about a meme turned Rihanna BFF named Lil Mayo, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's baby-mama, Daryl "Future Husband" Sabara and the cast of 2018's Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.
Why is New Mexico such a Who? Why is Roswell the only Them of U.F.O. sightings? Why is Erinn Hayes hanging out with Mandy Moore at an El Cantinero in Los Angeles? All good questions! Let us attempt to answer them for you. Plus, Instagram star Lil Miquela, Soundcloud rapper Lil Pump and B*Witched. Yes, B*Witched. (Yes, we know that Samantha Mumba is Irish too, but Lindsey forgot to mention her.)
Because Lindsey recorded from the great American southwest, today's episode begins with a lengthy discussion of all things Roswell: from the Whoiest celebrities on the UFO museum's wall to the forgotten made-for-TV movie ROSWELL starring Kyle MacLachlan, to the beloved UPN/The WB series that starred Shiri Appleby and Katherine Heigl. Why, you ask? Why not!
After catching you up on the LOVE ADVENT CALENDAR videos you almost certainly missed, it's time to chat about Pete Davidson's Themmy new tattoo, Jason Priestly punching his way into the narrative, Dasha Zhukova's whirlwind romance with (GASP) a former FRIEND, and a very quick rundown about Anna Faris's new boyfriend. Plus, we introduce a new segment that will be in every episode until May 19th (the day of the Royal Wedding): The Most Markleous Headline of the Week.
*sung to the tune of Cellino & Barnes' iconic jingle* "Cellino & Barnes, are they Whos or Thems, call 619-WHO-THEM" OK, it's not AS catchy, but it works. Other things that (still do) work: Nia Vardalos, Caroline Rhea, the new hosts of the Great American Baking Show. Things that don't work? "This is Me" if you play it during a spin class, Bitcoin, Twitter Moments (if you're trying to figure out what's actually going on) and when you call and try and correct us on our "Lady Marmalade" (2001 remake) knowledge. Honey, it just won't work!
This week's episode accidentally centers on (or stumbles around) two mononymous musicians named Betsy and Edei. One of them is Bobby's new fave, and the other is James Marsden's fave of two years. Which one's which remains unclear, but the point is: drop your last name and you have an above-average shot at becoming either of those things.
Also: Lea Michele is OK, Jennifer Meyer is GREAT, and The Greatest Showman is [THOUGHTS EMBARGOED BY TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX].
It's Thursday and time to ask..."Who's! There!" This week: more on Princess? Duchess? Meghan Markle, a mysterious photo of Kristin Chenoweth, Kathy Bates & Sarah Hyland, our Celebrity Big Brother (U.S.!) dream cast, Katherine McPhee's wedding crashing antics and are Laurie Metcalf and Jesse Metcalfe related? (No.)
Enough about Harry and Meghan! Let's talk about the REALLY big engagement news of the week: Karl Cook and Kaley Cuoco! We're so happy for her, not only because she Weird Scienced herself a fiancé who loves horses and Instagram as much as she does, but because his last name is Cook and her last name is the Italian word for cook. In other tangentially related Royal Engagement news, Cressida Bonas is FINE and JustLifeQuotes is the Who version of Bartlett's. Oh, you'd prefer news that's ENTIRELY unrelated to the Royal Engagement? Scott Eastwood is an airline spokesman now.
Does Queen Elizabeth II know who Troian Bellisario is? Has Queen Elizabeth II ever watched Suits? Does Queen Elizabeth II know that Abbie Cornish has a rap career? Has Queen Elizabeth II seen any of the two Lucas Hedges films that have come out in the past two months? Do straight people (Queen Elizabeth II) know who Colby Keller is? Is Queen Elizabeth II worried that Gigi Gorgeous doesn't know what the word "surrogate" means? Does Queen Elizabeth II think that 2003's 'Pieces of April' is a Katie Holmes or Patricia Clarkson vehicle?
This week's episode is all about Stassi Schroeder's recent podcast blunder and Candace Cameron Bure's new Hallmark movie in which she plays identical twin sisters who love coffee. Oh, and Barbra Streisand's new Netflix special about Willy Wonka and climate change...or something. And Meghan Markle's dogs!
Sound like a strange assortment? Blame Thanksgiving. And then blame Candace Cameron Bure...twice.
Happy Thanksgiving! Feel free to use us as an excuse to escape your family dynamic for some "me time", but be sure to give thanks for US along with your feast. On today's call-in extravaganza: Jonah Hill's sister Beanie Feldstein, BTS and K-pop at this year's AMAs, the lady who wanted Charlie Manson's corpse (did she get it????), a DJ named Marshmello, why Brie Larson ditched her real name AND...Does Obama know what Rivderdale is? Great question.
Tiny Knowles & Clinton Kelly? (ft. Who? Weekly Live!)
Sorry for the delay, but we're BACK after an accidental long weekend with an abridged, half-hour edit of our AMAZING, 90-MINUTE, FINAL SHOW OF OUR FALL 2017 TOUR! We hope the sounds of laughter from the Bell House audience improves your listening experience, and we also hope it makes you feel a little jealous. The most important topics of the week? The most special guest at Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian's wedding, Ewan McGregor's divorce, Clinton Kelly's feud, and the middle name that absolutely WILL NOT FIT in a Daily Mail headline.
Thanks again to our tour sponsor, Of a Kind, and to everyone across the country who came to see us in person! It's been wonderful, and you are all the best.
It's that time of the week once again, time to hear your thoughts, time to take your calls. What was it you're wondering about? Well, The Greatest Showman—and other of the Who'iest movies fulla Thems. Plus, Call Me By Your Name and Timothée Chalamet—did you know he's ACTUALLY AMERICAN? (Lindsey didn't.) Then, the Whos and Thems of holidays goes by a way simplier rule than you'd think and have you heard about the sex cult run by a Smallville star? Honestly, it's better if you didn't. And Derek Hough wrote a song.
AUDIO NOTE: We recorded this in Lindsey's parents' dining room, so chill about the echo-y audio quality in advance and give our kind hosts a little RESPECT.
We'll begin by thanking everyone in Boston for coming to our show over the weekend. It was SO much fun and Bobby was thrilled to make SO many Good Will Hunting jokes.
This week's episode contains the following news, in order from least important to most important: Lisa Bonet/donkey news, Kelly Rizzo/Bob Sagat news, Diddy/Foodgod news, Olivia Newton-John/Patrick McDermott news, Candace Cameron Bure news, MORE Candace Cameron Bure news, and Rita news.
What I'm trying to say is that today's episode is exceedingly important!!!! But so is every episode.
On today's Who's There?—the Harmonizers weigh in, we learn some history(???) about boats(???) from Bobby's beloved and the origin story of the name "Chrishell" and a Wholigan encounters Nick Swardson. Plus, why is the Daily Mail obsessed with Demi Rose Mawby? Why is America obsessed with the burgeoning romance between Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams? Why is "Grandma" back at the Big Apple Circus? And, most importantly, why is Kate Mara calling us? (...Or is she?)
It's another episode of your favorite history podcast, Who? Weekly! After a shaky start (and a very brief Kevin Can Wait Update™), we discuss the Whos and Thems of ships. Is the Mayflower a Who or a Them? How about the QE2? The Carpathia? The poop cruise? But enough about the sea. Other topics include: Chiara Ferragni (aka The Blonde Salad), a new Lifetime movie starring David Foster's girlfriend, Erykah Badu's amazing interview with Ezra Miller, and a BRAND NEW (and hopefully recurring) game about standom.
This week on Who's There, Lindsey and Bobby check in after a tour stop in our nation's capital to discuss people you've absolutely never heard of: like Jude Law's son Raff! In addition to Mr. Law, we discuss Pierce Brosnan's iconic Mamma Mia song, Anthony Rapp, Trevor Donovan, and what the hell happened to Sean William Scott. (Spoiler: nothing dramatic.)
ATTENTION WASHINGTON DC PALS: if you're around tonight and wanna have a good time, come on by the Who? Weekly show! Yes, that's tonight, Monday 10/30. Now that we've got that promo out of the way, did you know anyone 'Who' is anyone was at Matthew Morrison's Halloween bash? It's true. Another exclusive event? Colton Haynes' wedding!!! which did indeed happen. Other things that happened? Tamar Braxton's divorce, Cardi B's engagement and another wedding: Chrishell! Strause! Plus a Stranger Things kid tried to bring cocaine into America. Which one? We'll let you guess.
Hello from San Francisco! We're back out west and fresh from last night's flawless show. On today's Who's There? Lindsey talks about Judaism for a unnecessarily long time and Bobby, in return, talks about frito pie for EVEN LONGER. You'll learn so much! Plus, Post Malone, Samara Weaving (is she related to Hugo????) and don't you ever just feeling like discussing Christine Baranski? We do.
ATTENTION SAN FRANCISO RESIDENTS:Buy tickets to our live show THIS WEDNESDAY at whoweekly.us/livePlease tweet us @WhoWeekly if you have suggestions for fun things we can do this week, or else Bobby will just give Lindsey a tour through filming locations from Milk and Zodiac.
And now, notes on today's show.
After a Kevin Can Wait Update™, we discuss Karlie Kloss's new talk show called MOVIE NIGHT that is neither about movie night OR a talk show. What is it, then? No idea! That's a question for her friend Matthew Hussey. Moving on, we chat about her literal opposite, followed by a chat about Gucci Mane's iconic wedding to Keyshia Ka’oir.
If I can be honest with you guys, it's very late and I'm very tired from staying up to finish editing the podcast. Basically: Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas got engaged, there are two new boybands climbing the charts, someone's boyfriend really loves Katharine McPhee, "Who is Bella Thorne?" was an answer on Jeopardy! and there's a huge 27 Dresses CONSPIRACY on Wikipedia.
Hellooooo from the windy city! That's Chicago (FYI), and after 72 long hours hanging out at the bean and touring most of the locations from My Best Friend's Wedding, we're taking a break to play an epic match-up of "I Don't Know Her." It's been a while since we've played, and we're ready to make some tough decisions. Then, WHAT'S RITA UP TO? (A: What ISN'T she up to, really.)
One day they'll give us 1-800-WHO-THEM, but for now you'll have to remember that it's a 619 (Thanks, San Diego!) area code so you don't get some sort of sex line. (Or so we've heard!) Thank god enough people remembered the correct number, because today we're talking about Elizabeth Gillies (#spon), why A Walk to Remember is *actually iconic* (but is it tho?), Nikki Blonsky from the movie Hairspray, why Becky G was dragged off a Fifth Harmony concert stage (#cursed), Georgina Chapman and why how much we'd pay to see Long Island medium Theresa Caputo at a casino. (A: Not much.)
After beginning the episode with a story about the two Whos (and two Thems) Bobby encountered on a recent flight, we move on to the following topics:Sam Smith's new boyfriendGrace Gummer's new boyfriendSofia Vergara's requestMandy Moore's endoscopyJude Law's sweatpantsRita Ora's balloonsI assure you that these topics are all profoundly interesting.
Today’s episode of Who Weekly is brought to you by the new series, Dynasty. Watch it this Wednesday at 9/8 central on The CW.
Your thoughts on Pioneer Woman (Anne Ma-)Ree Drummond? (Yes, that's her real name!) We'll start with those. Then, exactly why Shania Twain has NOT met Brad Pitt—he truly does not impress her...much, why Josh Gad's tweets are suspect, if Mandy Moore's dye job changed her career trajectory, if Bella Thorne is *actually* dating YouTuber named Tana Mongeau and blah blah blah who the hell cares about Colin Jost. Join us!
Despite Bobby's irrational frustrations with Ree Drummond (aka The Pioneer Woman), her appearance on last week's People cover has made her impossible to ignore. And after sharing some fun facts about her and Ladd (can you believe both of them have double letters in their monosyllabic names?!?!), we provide you with a Kevin Can Wait Update™, discuss Eva Marcille's big return to reality TV, and provide proof that breaking up with Heidi Klum is hazardous to one's wellbeing.
Today’s episode of Who Weekly is brought to you by the new series, Dynasty, premiering next Wednesday, October 11th, at 9/8 central on The CW.
Q: Did the blinds about the (alleged) triple Kardashian pregnancy THREE YEARS AGO? A: Depends on how devious you consider Kris Jenner to be. Plus, Wendy Williams becomes the center of a major Daily Mail investigation, we decipher the Skarsgårds from the Sarsgaard and Scheana Shay does groundbreaking #spon for a lawyer. One more double-sided Q: Does Donatella Versace know who George Bush is? Does George Bush know who Donatella Versace is?
After opening the episode with a VERY special unboxing segment (yes, we understand unboxing is an ineffective concept on a podcast), we bring you a politics-adjacent Kevin Can Wait Update™, followed by big stories on: Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott, Fergie's smoothie, and--unfortunately--Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder. Turns out Reed got pregnant because Somerhalder threw her birth control pills in the toilet, but before you get outraged...read her Notes App screenshot. (We were unable to provide audio from Nikki and Ian's interview because the podcast it came from mysteriously deleted the episode...hmm...)
And then there's Rita, who was so busy this week singing covers, releasing music videos, and wearing fanny packs on her shoulder.
Did you watch The Emmys? Wondering who that announcer was? Well, you're not alone. That guy! Plus! So much more, including: Emmy winner Ann Dowd, rapper Lil Peep (yes, the guy with the plentiful face and neck tattoos who is ALLEGEDLY dating Bella Thorne), singer Dua Lipa, the break up of Hayden and Rachel and brand new Aussie Bachelorette, Sophie Monk. (Australia, tell us, do you claim her?)
Fresh off the first shows of our Fall 2017 Tour (HAVE YOU BOUGHT TICKETS YET?!), we get right back into it with a discussion about some very important, very new Them-adjacent Whos: Francia Raisa (the woman who gave Selena Gomez her kidney) and Taylor Goldsmith (the man who gave Mandy Moore his heart).
Also in this episode: Shawn Mendes's favorite scent, a Kevin Can Wait Update, some HUGE Rita Ora news, and the fight that left Mario Lopez's phone shattered in a Las Vegas gym.
Knock, knock? It's been a while since I've done that joke, right? It's time for another Who's There? on the first day of our Big Fall Tour. (See you tonight in Brooklyn, ya'll!) First, you (yes, YOU) get down to the bottom of why John Stamos was at that random Nina Dobrev-hosted lake party. Then, last night's telethon. Did you watch it? Lindsey did. Plus, what it feels like to wake up after surgery and realize that Eric & Jessie: Game On is the only show left on TV. And do Stephen Dorf and Elle Fanning keep in touch?
We're back from a vacation that wasn't with a brand new episode! After a quick Kevin Can Wait Update, we talk about your FAVORITE Bachelor ever, Arie Luyendyk Jr.! Or maybe he's your LEAST favorite Bachelor ever! Or maybe you don't even remember him! Or maybe you swore off watching every entry in the Bachelor franchise!!! The point is, this Arie guy is dull. Also in today's episode: a Property Brother was conned out of $80,000 worth of magic tricks before he was a Property Brother, Paul Hollywood made a dumb decision, and Margot Robbie didn't know her.
See you Thursday! And DON'T FORGET TO BUY TICKETS TO OUR TOUR! WhoWeekly.us/LIVE
Anyone feel like they didn't hear ENOUGH about Kaley Cuoco's partnership with / love of Panera's new Beverage Station? Well, lucky for you, there's a lot more where that came from. Beyond Kaley's love for low-cal beverages, we've got an explanation of why James Blunt appears to be *everywhere*, why even a SEVENTEEN YEAR OLD didn't get Katy Perry's "Swish Swish" video, if Swipe Up is the new Link in Bio, and why John Stamos was hanging out with Nina Dobrev and Chord Overstreet at an '80s Labor Day party.
Look, we know Catherine Zeta-Jones is a Them, but her new line of home goods, aptly named Casa Zeta-Jones, is *absolutely* a Who. After exploring her minimal--though immensely satisfying--internet presence (have you ever SEEN an Instagram grid as good as hers?!), we move on to stories about Derek Hough's love for veganism, the way Us Weekly covered Abigail Anderson's wedding (Spoiler: they don't show the bride's face), and play a special Labor Day game of 'Labor Day or Labor Nay'.
First we tips from Fame Game author and all-around celebrity expert, Rachel McCord, by reading her website. Then, we use those tips to investigate the recent (and past!) scandal's of Louise Linton—yes, the Instagram getting-off-the-plane lady. Plus, did LOST produce any Thems? And we discover the most important thing that happened surrounding MTV's VMAs this year. (No, it wasn't any of the actual awards.)
Well well well, Bobby finally sat down and watched not ONE but TWO movies about an unexpectedly romantic season in a vineyard over the weekend, and has plenty to say about the experience. We chase that full-bodied cabernet sauvignon with a little chatter about Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi's 100% totally real engagement, Jessie J's love of Cheetos, Dylan Sprouse's (the non-Jughead Sprouse) hypnotic non-admission of guilt, and--after a rundown of this year's Whoiest VMA nominees--the most UPSETTING Rita Ora story of 2017.
Are you ready for Summer in the Whoniverse?
We're back after last week's technical difficulty—which may have been caused by the eclipse? What else was caused by the eclipse? The sudden resurgence of Bonnie Tyler (and her back-up band, DNCE). Plus, some bonus goss for our weekly Kevin Can Wait Update; CBB's Gemma Collins and Sarah Harding, Jenna Bush's brief stand-up comedy career and a disgusting candy store called The Sugar Factory.
Fam, did y'all watch the Teen Choice Awards? Cool, cool, cool. We didn't either. Not one second of it—not that it'll stop us from talking about it. Congrats to Musers(?) like Max & Harvey for...showing up? And to every cast member of Pretty Little Liars (but not Chad Lowe). On today's episode: Italian playboy Gianluca Vacchi, future college classmates Brooklyn Beckham and Sailor Brinkley Cook, Who? Them? Dick Wolf and What's Rachael Leigh Cook Up To?
Did you hear the news? Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder had a baby! Did you hear the other news? They named it Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder! Did you hear the other *other* news? They're taking "one month of silence" without visitors or phones, so it looks like we won't be hearing from them! (We doubt they'll make it more than a couple of days.) Also featured in today's episode: The Kevin Can Wait Update (a new weekly feature), Jeremy Meeks, (the hot felon who has a scorned wife and a billionaire girlfriend), and RITA—whose album was delayed *yet again*.
On today's call-in edition of Who? Weekly—we're shook over The Bachelorette finale (but mostly by her #spon); we're shook over how Anna Faris and Chris Pratt released their break-up news (Are iMessages the new Notes app?); we're shook that YouTube legend is living in the Celebrity Big Brother house; and we're shook by the breakout star of The CW's The Bold Type. (HINT: She's an icon and a legend.)
We couldn't help ourselves. Today's episode begins with even more chatter about Erinn Hayes, the ***FORMER*** star of Kevin Can Wait who was cruelly killed off by bigwigs at CBS who think America would prefer Leah Remini. (They're not wrong, but we're still sad about Erinn.) Later, the smelly pu...vagina story heard 'round the world--or at least in the general vicinity of Bravo--has finally come to an end. Next up, Lindsey makes Bobby play a game about two very recent Wholebrity weddings. And finally, Rita was allegedly chosen by teens.
First, the new Jessica Biel USA show that has us asking...Why are we seeing the poster for this wherever we go? Then, speaking of new TV shows, we get the full rundown (from a local!) of MTV's Laguna Beach knock-off, Siesta Key. Plus, who's Poppy and why is the internet obsessed with her? And why is Justin Bieber cancelling his world tour to hang out with a sexy preacher named Carl?
Welcome to the world, Gravity Blue Smith! We're so pleased to have you here. As your first duty on this planet, we're gonna go over all the Boys in Charli XCX's brand new music video "Boys". (It's a lot of boys, am I right?) Get yourself some breastmilk to go, because it's going to be quite the ride. Then, do you know who Deidre Ball is? Don't worry, I didn't either until this week. We're so proud of you and hope you grow up to be what Cindy Adams would call "a non-person"!
First, an A-Block like you've never experienced (and never will again, hopefully)...Doctor Who-Gives-a-Fuck, am I right? Don't answer that. Then, Girls Trip breakout star Tiffany Haddish, Jake Paul, a breakdown of the "Whoiest name", Bella Thorne v Bella Hadid and Kardashian hanger-ons Scotty Cunha and Simon Huck inspire us to invent a new acronym: THAMPS. You'll have to listen to hear what it means!
Two Monday interviews in a row? You're so lucky. Also, we were *so* on vacation, but more on that in the intro. (Which, by the way, doesn't sound GREAT because idyllic cabins aren't great for recording, so please forgive us.) Joining us in this episode is iconic wine drinker, complainer, podcast host, author, and Harry Styles fan Matt Bellassai! He talks to us about what it's like to be a Who with a VERY unique internet fandom, the Whos and Thems of celebrity wine brands, and--how could we forget--Christy Carlson Romano.
Later, we chat about Rita and share sartorial evidence that she listens to Who Weekly.
From Full House offspring to someone's god-sister getting the DO NOT DATE HIM warning of a lifetime, welcome to yet another episode of Who's There, in which we take your calls and try not to get stuff wrong. Today: Can you name any members of Imagine Dragons? Can you name the new Doctor Who? (Hint: It's a woman.) Can you name anyone in the 1999 film, "The Blair Witch Project"? We don't talk about that last thing, I was just wondering if you could.
In honor of Canada's 150th birthday (you don't look a day over 100, queen!), today's episode features the star of legendary Canadian export, Degrassi, Lauren Collins! That's right: PAIGE. Lauren chats about Canadian whos, how often she's recognized in America, and her most famous former classmate, Aubrey Drake Graham.
R.I.P. Ghenghis Kahn (the original), who died what we learn is a horrible death. On to more cheery topics, Lele Pons (Remember her?) tried to donate her weave to Locks of Love and Christopher Nolan "has no idea" who Harry Styles is...err...was...before he cast him in Dunkirk. Plus, are there Them bands with all Who members? And when was the exact moment in time when YOU realized that Oliver Hudson was Kate Hudson's brother? Find out in this week's Who's There!
Instead of boring you with dozens of Shookus puns, let's just get right to the point: this week we discuss Ben Affleck's new girlfriend Lindsay Shookus (specifically why she reminds us of Nina Katz), Khloe Kardashian's favorite florist (he's a Cleveland teen), and Julianne Hough's wedding--WHICH FINALLY HAPPENED. Plus: we play a "game" about celebrity dog names.
Oh, and one more thing...Rita's writing a movie.
Back from a long holiday weekend, and we missed a Nikki Blonsky Instagram livestream? WHAT? Catch up with us on that journey, as well for details on Brie Larson's music career, which Haim sister is Bobby's favorite (HINT: it's the Who-iest one), Suki Waterhouse's latest starring(!) role, the Whos and Thems of nuts and what exactly is WhoSay and why do some celebs still use it?
This week on Who's There? it's true, we're catering to YOU. First, more on Rihanna's new hook-up, Hassan Jameel, and whyyyyy that explains her 'feud' with Naomi Campbell. Then, who remains a Who post-Pretty Little Liars? Is it...all of them? Some of them? A newly-mommy'd mommy vlogger named Acacia Brinley who does some of the most impressive Instagram #spon we've ever seen. James Packer gets himself into some trouble with the Israel government? (And Mariah has no idea what we're talking about.) Ed Westwick got a new girlfriend and her name SOUNDS familiar? Anyone? Bueller? Teresa Giudice Vagina Monologues?
Amina and Shani are back this week for another installment of Who Dat, and there's SO much to cover. From the basketball player whose last name is literally Ball and whose company branding looks like the Better Business Bureau logo to whether or not Blair Underwood is a Them. (SPOILER: HE IS DEFINITELY A THEM, YOU MONSTERS!) P.S. if you know the person in charge of Rachel Lindsay's Instagram account (or of you're Rachel Lindsay herself), please get in touch with Amina IMMEDIATELY.

Today on Who's There? A shocking twist in the Bachelor in Paradise saga—even we didn't see this coming. Plus, Drake Bell and Josh Peck fight it out on social media, Callie Hernandez, Miley Cyrus' brother Braydon (and do we HAVE to talk about him?), why Lindsey can't finish a book (HINT: it has to do with her discovering Terrace House on Netflix) and...Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice.
After beginning the show with the first (and hopefully last) instance of Lindsey discussing the plot of The Boss Baby, we dive into two instances of Whos and Who? Weekly being brought up to ACTUAL Whos Ansel Elgort (he'll be a Them soon enough) and...Jordan Gavaris. Moving on, Lindsey explains what's going on with Bachelor In Paradise, Bobby explains why he thinks Ty Burrell pooped his pants in Times Square as opposed to peeing them, and Rita wears stripes.
The Whos...the Thems...the fabric of our lives. ~Zooey Deschanel...and Kate Bosworth...and us on this week's Who's There? featuring all of the above. Plus, art world Whos, The Kaplan Twins, Kaitlyn Isham and Cheryl Maitland, a list of Gay Thems who are Straight Whos (according to Bobby) and the correct way to pronounce "Degrassi" — SHOCKING HINT: Lindsey got it wrong.
You probably heard about that big interview with Amanda Bynes (her first in years)--maybe you eve heard about her referencing that iconic "MURDER MY VAGINA" tweet!--but did you actually WATCH it? If so, you may have wondered who the hell Diana Madison was. We sure did, and do our best to explain who she is on today's episode. After that, we discuss Jessica Chastain's new whosband, Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, and play a special HGTV version of I Don't Know Her. Then, as always, Rita, who is rocking both curls AND sideboob.
Hugh Sheridan? Asher Angel? Max Minghella? Jimmy Brooks? (Yes, that last one is a *bit* misleading.) Today's show is chockfull of your questions and our sometimes-answers. For example, why are Tim Meadows and Catt Sadler (???) in an extremely confusing car ad? Did Jennifer Lopez know who Bethenny Frankel was pre-A Rod? And find out exactly what Cory Monteith's brother doing in Canada...You don't wanna miss it.
We're sorry for missing last Monday's (we were trying to identify Wholebrities IRL), but are happy to be back to our regular schedule. And lemme tell you--it's a doozy. After a brief update on Bella Thorne's form, we move on to what may have been the wedding of the, or at the very least the wedding of this particular lunar cycle. Hannah Bronfman, a Who we've somehow never discussed before, married someone who shares not one, not two, but THREE of her jobs. If that's not true love, I don't know what is. Also on today's show: The protesters at Rebel Wilson's defamation suit were incredible, Rob Kardashian doesn't know her, and Austin Swift is #notgonnahappen.
The long-awaited Ashley I. episode is here! If you're not familiar, today we're getting some behind-the-scenes goss from Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise alum, Ashley Iaconetti—whose iconic cry faces delighted audiences across the globe. Plus, a stories about Who-spotting in Los Angeles and haaaaaaaave you heard Rita's new single? (...BUT WHAT ABOUT CARLY RAE JEPSEN'S?)
It's that time of the week once again, time again to answer your calls. You wanna know what's the deal with HGTV and which Shonda Rhimes shows are Whos and Thems. You wanna know if Aziz Ansari gradWHOated. You wanna know if Emily VanCamp is marrying her co-star (and who he is). There are so many things you wanna know, and we have some (a few? maybe?) of the answers. Oh! And to check out the famed Twin Peaks spreadsheet, Who? Peakly, head on over to the Who? Weekly Facebook group.
Today we have an EXTRA SPECIAL and EXTRA LONG interview with actress Busy Philipps about her nearly 20-year career in Hollywood (during which she starred in beloved shows like Freaks & Geeks and Cougar Town), those incredible Instagram stories (including one surprising reason she does them), why Tom Hanks is the greatest, and what most fans usually scream at her. (SPOILER: It's not, "Hey Busy! I loved you in Dawson's Creek!")
WHO is Taylor Swift's [alleged] new boyfriend? WHAT is [allegedly] the worst museum of all time (and why are there so many Thems visiting it?) WHY are they letting Housewives' Bethenny Frankel into the Shark Tank? (Oh, and we recorded a bit about actress Alexandra Daddario but it was too boring so we cut it. Sorry, Alexandra Daddario!)
We took a break from listening to "Yodel It," the best song from this year's Eurovision contest, to talk about...this year's Eurovision contest. How do non-American's watch? Which country won? Does any of this matter? (The answers to those questions are: Logo, Portugal, and ABSOLUTELY.) Anyway, after a lengthy Eurovision chat, we move on to more important things, like Sabra hummus and Pentatonix. I know this episode sounds like a nightmare, but trust us. Better yet: trust Lea Michele.
Again, with the Chrises! Apparently, even Chris Pine knows that everyone can't tell the difference between him and the rest of them. We're not alone! Plus, we learn some disturbing information about Paris Hilton's brother and Paris Hilton's sex tape partner, get an apology from across the pond, figure out exactly what activated charcoal is and why people are obsessed with it all of a sudden and ask our dads about what's going on with Morning Joe and his new fiancé-slash-co-host, Mika.
HUGE GUEST ALERT. Have you ever asked yourself, "Who the fuck is Betty Who?" Then you're in luck, because this week we interviewed Australian pop star (and our name twin) Betty Who about being recognized in VERY specific neighborhoods, writing the perfect pop song, and her favorite whos from Down Under. Later, we play a game called Australian or Notstralian (self-explanatory, I'm sure), and discuss Rita's recent Instagram with the one and only Ed Sheeran. (Oh, we also begin with a VERY heartfelt apology.)
From the smoke-filled bathrooms of the Met Ball to the preteen-filled bathrooms of the Radio Disney Music Awards, this week's edition of Who's There is truly for everyone. Plus, did you know there's a Who named Lauren Lauren? (first AND last!), a Who named Isla Fisher? (she hikes!) and a Them who got an exciting new job (his last name rhymes with free-quest!)
Hey guys, I just wanted to address Fyre Festival...Even though this was not my project what so ever, nor was I informed about the production or process of the festival in any shape or form, I do know that it has always been out of great intent and they truly wanted all of us to have the time of our lives. I initially trusted this would be an amazing & memorable experience for all of us, which is why I agreed to do one promotion...not knowing about the disaster that was to come... Today's episode is NOT brought to you by the National Pork Board.
Much like Pitbull, Who's There is officially worldwide: We've got calls from China(!), Australia(!), Brooklyn, New York(!)—and everyone's got something to say. Is Rita really "big in China"? Remember Chad Lowe? How does one tell apart Joel Kinnaman, Charlie Hunnam and Jai Courtney? Have you heard Amber Heard and Elon Musk's relationship portmanteau yet? (It's good.) Is Jack Antonoff a Who? And who is Britt Robertson? All this and a very, very special announcement.
This week Bobby revisits his childhood fear of brown recluse spiders when he and Lindsey learn all about Meghan Linsey, namely...A.) who she is, and B) why there's a giant hole in her face. Next up, we chat about two Cyruses, but can you guess which ones? (Hint: they're not Billy Ray, Miley, or Noah.) Finally, we explore one of Us Weekly's best 25 Things installments in months. So raise your hand if you're excited about this episode! (Bobby and Lindsey raise their hands.)
Damn, y'all are smart—on today's Who's There? we learn Cockney rhyming slang for "feet", the "power" of Jim Toth and exactly how Nikki Bella and Sarah Michelle Gellar are connected (hint: it's thru Freddie Prinze Jr.). Then, questions about Noah Cyrus' music (Is it good?), Netflix's '13 Reasons Why' (Who?) and Tobey Maguire (Him?). Plus, unrelated rambling about Lady Gaga's new single, the film 'Music & Lyrics' and what Heidi and Spencer should name their new baby.
This week we had the pleasure of chatting with living wholebrity Debby Ryan! You might remember her from Disney Channel shows like "Jessie" and "Suite Life On Deck" (some of us call it "The Boat"), news about the CW pilot she just filmed, or maybe from that time a lot of people assumed she died last year! (It was Debbie Reynolds! R.I.P.) The point is, we had a great time chatting with her about what it was like to become famous at such a young age, and how she responds when confused adults politely ask who she is. After that, we fill you in on everything "Feet-Toe Ora" is up to at WHOchella.
We get the update on Jen Aniston's hair care line, hear about a childhood crush on Chris K. from NSYNC (yep, that one) and a nine year old calls to ask about...Emma Stone? Plus, Britney Spears' new boyfriend (who), Scott Porter's genetic testing (who), Chad Mountain's vacation (who) and the Thems of Wrestlemania.
This week, we talk about the elusive third Property Brother who may or may not have anything to do with property, odd sponcon from Broadway Them/Off-Broadway Who Sutton Foster, Bella Hadid's obsession with Postmates, and the whoiest Jewish holidays. OK, I have to stop writing this description because my deviled eggs are here.
Today on Who's There, one of our oldest-listening and most treasured fans calls in to explain why Jennifer Aniston will NEVER be a Who, and boy is she convincing. Next up are some calls about coffee (who the hell is Gregory, anyway?), a famous talking snowman (AKA Josh Gad), and our favorite sibling of Tyne's. (It's Tim. Sorry to all other Daly sibs.)
While you recover from your post-Big Little Lies hangover (Congrats you crazy Derniacs!), join us for a little Who sleuthing. Who is JoJo Sivan and how does she rank on the list of JoJo? (...Before Fletcher or after?) Plus: Are David Spade and Naya Rivera reallllly dating? (The answer may surprise you!) and what do Kathy Griffin, Colton Haynes and Lisa Rinna (now) have in common? Jodi Sweetin and two other TGIF stars make a show about...being only semi-famous and we engage in a little Wholigan Mulligan.
From Whos who play Thems ("Famous in Love", anyone?) to Whos who date Thems (take, Paris Hilton and her new beau, Chris Zylka) and everyone in between. This week: Why is everyone talking about Father John Misty all of a sudden? Who are all these people on The View that we don't recognize? Does believing that the Earth is flat make you more of a Who or a Them?
We're back from a week-long vacation (during which neither of us took an actual vacation) because it's our CIVIC DUTY to tell you about the fact that Ashley Tisdale is promoting the Ryan Reynolds/Jake Gyllenhaal movie LIFE on her Instagram page. Is it brilliant, mesmerizing sponcon? Yes. Was she paid to post it? Questionable. We'll also chat about the gift cards on a Duggar's public wedding registry, Liam and Cheryl's new baby, and RIta's brand spanking new panic room.
Who the hell is she hiding from? You've got one guess.
Today, the day our beloved Us Weekly was sold to American Media Inc., is a sad one. Is there a bright side? Maybe not, but Colton Haynes got engaged, Armie Hammer loves to tie sexy knots and Tavi Gevinson is doing #spon con for an apartment building! All that and more on today's Who's There...Who's There? Who's There!
It's another episode of Who Dat, and the first recorded IN THE SAME CITY. This week, Shani and Amina talk to us about not recognizing Key and Peele, a recent incomprehensible subplot on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Chance the Rapper, and a strange new photo of Ciara, Little Future, and hands that may or may not belong to Russell Wilson.
After being absolutely OBLITERATED by a fan for confusing Nina Dobrev with Ashley Greene (something for which we will NEVER apologize), we answer calls about Miley Cyrus's little sister Noah, our favorite sexy buffalo Dan Stevens, and the artist who may or may not have inspired Lorde's latest single "Green Light."
In case you didn't realize, this weekend was a big one. None other than Julianne Hough spent a weekend with her best Whos (and 3 Thems?!?) in Cabo for her bachelorette party! #WeDontLaichHimWeLoveHim #HastaLaVistaHough #JulesBEACHelorette. Unfortunately we were NOT invited so we'll have to do a little sleuthing just to figure out who everyone is (and how they all know Rita Wilson?) That, plus a new Dancing With The Stars line-up and Rita's 2 year-old cleavage on today's big episode.
It's about that time again to find out............Who's There! This week you're asking about: Domino Kirke and "Lonely Boy", Bill Paxton (R.I.P.), Bella Thorne's brand new basketball boyfriend whose name I've already forgotten, the insatiable thirst of Allison Williams and CONDIMENTS. I mean, long live mayonnaise, but can a condiment really be a Who? Find out.
Though nothing else seems to matter after Moonlight's surprise win at the Oscars last night, Who? Weekly's heart will go on. This week, we discuss the years-long beef between Nicki Minaj and Remy Ma, photos of Lea Michele falling off a paddle board, and whether or not Rita has *actually* been kidnapped.
On this week's Who's There: Do British like James Corden? (ft. an Actual British Person!) Is Shailene Woodley a Who or a Them? (And does she still eat clay?) Which is the Who'iest streaming system and why can't Bobby say "Roku" properly? Plus, does Robert DeNiro's recently shitty films demote him to Who status? And we'll go over Whos and Thems of the Sc*ent*l*gy landscape (at least, according to Wikipedia and Leah Remini). Please don't come after us, Xenu.
A very special, super-sized episode featuring none other than Spencer Pratt – suuuuuure, you might recognize that name, but Spencer's an expert on all things Who. What's it like to set up your own paparazzi shoots? To realize you're more famous in England? What's it like TO BE FAMOUS in England (and no longer as famous in America)? Plus: crystals, Heidi, Jonathan Cheban, poetry and.................What's Rita Up To?
Hope you didn't forget the mess/joy that was last weekend's Grammy Awards, because we're taking your calls and you had a LOT of questions about what went down. Like, who was that chick in the Trump dress and how'd she even get an invite? And what's the deal with James Corden, anyway. Plus, did you know that there's a red carpet that happens BEFORE the red carpet? Well, there is and we watched it. We're not sorry.
This week we're talking about Alexa Ray Joel (the daughter of Christie Brinkley and Billy Joel), Sailor Brinkley Cook (the daughter of Christy Brinkley and Peter Cook), and why it's probably hard being the daughter of someone who can literally walk on water. PLUS: Splits we're sad about, splits we're not sad about, and our probably-untrue theory about why Joanna Krupa Instagrammed a photograph of herself in the bathtub. (SPOILER: It involves Brandi Glanville.)
Is Us Weekly secretly for sale? Is Danny McBride secretly a Who? Is John Malkovich secretly a Them? Is breaking both of your legs actually funny? We'll answer these questions and more on this week's episode of Who's There? Plus, what's Brooke Hogan up to these days? And five things you MUST KNOW about Kenny G.
Today's episode is brought to you by the new series Riverdale, now airing on Thursdays at 9/8c on The CW.
Pour yourself a nice, detoxifying glass of charcoal water, because it's time to learn more about your favorite Whos! This week, Ruby Rose tells Willie Geist about how normal Taylor Swift is, someone named David Henrie gets married to the state of Delaware (I think), and we realize how passionate we are about the life and career of Leelee Sobieski. You'll love today's episode, or the star of How I Met Your Mother's name isn't Jacoba Francisca Maria Smulders.
Today's episode is brought to you by the new series Riverdale, now airing on Thursdays at 9/8c on The CW.
Oh man, the calls are good this week. From Tim Daly's broken legs to a Twitter romance set up by none other than Chrissy Teigen – we've got everything on Who's There. Also: Who's Who on the Vanity Fair Young Hollywood cover? And is Armie Hammer actually named after Arm & Hammer? And which Michelle Williams is Who'ier?
Today's episode is brought to you by the new series Riverdale, now airing on Thursdays at 9/8c on The CW.
We're thrilled to welcome friend and beloved Who, Michelle Collins, to the studio!!!! (Yes, we have a studio now...) But first, can we talk about that godawful Us Weekly cover? And Derek Hough is NOT dating Jennifer Lopez, so please, we beg of you, stop asking. Then, Michelle discusses 5 Things You Must Know About Her and we play a brand new game called Bag of Lies. Today's episode is brought to you by the new series Riverdale, now airing on Thursdays at 9/8c on The CW.
On this week's Who's There, a caller and her sister attend the DC Women's March and have an encounter with a celebrity they SHOULD HAVE KNOWN (how dare they!), another asks if Greta Gerwig is a who, a them, or...something in between...and we spend more airtime on Josh Kushner than he deserves. Today's episode is brought to you by the new series RIVERDALE, which premieres Thursday, January 26 at 9/8c on The CW.
Hope your Inauguration Day was depressing (Sorry, Jill Zarin) and your #womensmarch was inspiring (Sorry, Taylor Swift). Who? Weekly is back at it again and we have the ACTUAL things you need to know about Press Secretary Sean Spicer – no matter what "alternative facts" people try and tell you. Plus, Anwar Hadid and Nicola Peltz hook up, Suki Waterhouse and Diego Luna hook up and Derek and Julianne Hough hook up........lmao just kidding!!!! They just went dressed as Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds to a Who's La La Land-themed birthday party. Not weird or creepy at all.
This week's episode is brought to you by Riverdale, a new series premiering Thursday at 9/8 central on The CW.
On this week's edition of Who's There we take some really good comments (Night Nurse is a Marvel character? Who knew!) and answer some tough questions. For example, who is Anya Taylor-Joy? And why is Rob Schneider allowed to tweet? Plus, dissecting those Fab Fit Fun boxes every Who has promoted on their Instagram and how to tell the difference between Olivia Munn and Olivia Wilde. (It's very hard.)
Brandi Glanville, Dean Sheremet (and a Fireworks Show by Grucci)?
"Sing us a song, you're The Piano Guys!" ...is maybe what you would say if you were heading to the inauguration next week. While you're there you could hear the vocal stylings of such Whos as Toby Keith, RaviDrums, The Frontmen of Country and Lee Greenwood. Plus, the romance other Whos including, Aly Raisman and Colton Underwood, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell and Kirsten Dunst and...Landry. And does your kitchen rule? Find out!
The calls are in and they are PISSED that some girl didn't know who Garth Brooks was. We're still recovering from the Golden Globes and apparently so are you...So, did you know that Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hilarie Burton love each other? That Jonathan Bennett was gay? That Eva Amurri Martino just cannot keep a nanny? Plus, your You've Got Mail 2 pitches are rolling in...
Did you watch last night's Golden Globes? Did you figure out who Damien Chazelle was? No? Good. We have a quick rundown of what might've happened last night and Who might be the ones people will talk about tomorrow: Ruth Negga? Isabelle Huppert? Lily Collins? Simon Helberg? Plus: Jake Bugg, Wendi Deng's new boyfriend, Sabrina Carpenter and Nick Viall.
As they say: New Year, New Who. We're back, it's 2017 and we still have no idea who anyone is. The concept of the podcast soldiers on, and we take calls (and comments!) from our fantastic listeners, including old things like: Who is Bebe Rexha? and new things like: Who is Mahershala Ali? And insane things like: Who is Garth Brooks?

Who's the best Who who took a vacation with their family? Who's the best Who who posted an Instagram video? Who's the best Who who became our biggest fan? Find out the answers to all those questions during the first annual Who Me? Awards! PLUS we discuss Keke Palmer's thoughts on Bella Thorne, and Rita Ora's financial non-crisis.
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, garbage Lifetime movies playing on TV – it must be nearing Christmas, when all the Whos (and sometimes Thems!) sign on the dotted line to appear in made-for-TV movies. (Someone's gotta pay for all those Hatchimals, am I right?) We figure out exactly how many Christmas movies Lacey Chabert has starred in (SIX!!!!!!!!), who Mariah Carey's new boyfriend is, which harmony in Fifth Harmony is ditching and if that means they are now Fourth Harmony? ...Or no harmony? This is already confusing.
Today's episode is brought to you by The OA, now streaming on Netflix.
After discussing 2016's most-Googled woman (SPOILER: it's not Cindy Margolis anymore), Lindsey and Bobby move on to the latest--and fakest--Blac Chyna/Rob Kardashian drama, the Who at the heart of Donald Trump's presidential inauguration, and the exact dollar amount that "Water For Elephants" author Sara Gruen spent on 156 Hatchimals. PLUS: we play I Don't Know Her for the first time in far too long.
Today's episode is brought to you by The OA, now streaming on Netflix.
This week on Who's There: We're sick of being required to learn about HGTV Whos and their personal drama (what's the difference between Fixer Upper and Flip or Flop, anyway?), Lala Kent is sick of Vanderpump Rules (will anyone know she's even gone?), and Bobby gets yelled at for missing the ANTM premiere (even though he has a VERY GOOD excuse).
Today's episode is sponsored by Netflix's "The OA," which begins streaming Friday.
Happy...Premiere Week of America's Next Top Model? It's practically a national holiday now that our girl Rita's hosting. More on that before tonight's flagship episode. Plus: the new Bachelor contestants (and their strange obsession with The Little Mermaid), a whole slew of new Who couples (Whoples?), a brand new Who baby (Whoby?), the brand new Spider-Man trailer featuring Zendaya (and Some British Guy) and Lindsey sends a very important LinkedIn request.
This episode was brought to you by Netflix's The OA. Check out @The_OA on Instagram (and @whoweekly on Twitter) for a special sneak peek.
Whether you watched Hairspray Live! on NBC last night, or skipped it and did something productive for once in your life, today's episode of Who's There? is for you. Let's talk Grammys ("Best New Artist," anyone?), the Whos & Thems of Saturday Night Live and figure out what the heck the Love Magazine Advent Calendar is once and for all.
We got Beans, Greens, Potatoes, Tomatoes, Whos, Thems...YOU NAME IT! Amina and Shani AKA "Who Dat?" are back and we have a lot to catch up on. Adrienne Bailon's new husband, Themvertising, This Is Us, Yasiin Bey, the Whos and Thems of Africa...Let's just say you have no idea what you're in for.
You rang? On this week's brand new Who's There: Lady Gaga's hat, Tila Tequila's racism and Taylor Swift's latest BFF. Plus, all you have to know about the Whos and Thems of Stars Hollow and Andy Cohen's boyfriend, Clifton Dassuncao.
Do you call yourself a love warrior? Is Oprah one of your closest friends? Did you just divorce your husband to start dating a world-famous soccer star? If you answered "Yes!" to any of these questions, you might be Glennon Doyle Melton. If you answered "What the hell are you talking about?" to any of those questions, you need to listen to this week's episode and learn about Glennon, why Jack Falahee came out as straight, and how Tony Bennett met his wife (spoiler: she was inside someone's uterus). Plus, we play a BRAND NEW (and potentially terrible) game called Stars Are Blind!
Did you know that there is a prolific romance novelist named Heather Graham? Lindsey and Bobby didn't. That, plus more of your wonderful comments. Then: Who is Steve Bannon? And why does he make money every time I watch Seinfeld on TBS? Who is Ezra Miller and is Ryan Seacrest a Who or a Them?
Welcome to the world, Dream Kardashian! There's so much for you to learn. First of all, Vanderpump Rules' Mike Shay is *not* missing, he promises. And YouTube person Calum McSwiggan, see, he was lying about that night, so we have an update for you. Plus Patrick "McDreamy" Dempsey is back (with his wife) and we've discovered the World's Most Boring 25 Things You Don't Know About Me. All for you, Dream Kardashian. We're so happy you're here.
It's our civic duty to answer your calls, so answer them we shall. Today: more chatter on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, a Chloe Grace Moretz Social Media Update, Lindsey's favorite show (is it Rizzoli & Isles????), Kaley Cuoco does BDSM, the Supreme Court Justices (ranked Who>Them, duh) and that time Darren Aronofsky and Jennifer Lawrence SHARED A LOLLIPOP. Yuck.
As you gear up for Election Day, let us help you distract yourself with the frivolity of Whos: the now-single Paulina Slagter, the conspiracy theorist Lucian Piane, the "P"-bodied Wendy Williams, the tea-drinking Farrah Abraham, the return of Vanderpump Rules and a very special election-themed version of "I Don't Know Her".
What do a potentially royal Who and a 13 year old rapping Who have in common? Well, aside from being Whos...They're both people you called in an asked about this week on Who's There! Plus: Lindsay Lohan's new accent, Pilot Jones (and his involvement with Rob & Chyna), and Mel Gibson's equestrian girlfriend. Did you know that Lucy Hale's real name isn't Lucy? Tune in to find out what it is!
Happy WHOlloween y'all. Did you dress up this year? Something sexy? Something spooky? Something....problematic? In today's episode we talk James Packer (whoooo) vs. Mariah Carey (oh, right), Lindsay Lohan's hilariously Who tendencies and the demise of Vine (and its stars!) Plus: our favorite Whos and their Wholloween costumes, Rita.
What happens when you put Diane Kruger, Amber Tamblyn and a Musical.ly star in a room together? Well, they would all ask, "And whoooo are you?" because even they would be confused. Our beloved callers this week are asking about those three plus, the fall TV line-up (Jimmi Simpson? Justin Hartley? Mike Colter?) Ronan Farrow and the afterlife.
#GrabHerByTheBrain, won't you? Just kidding – we'd NEVER grab your brain without consent. Instead, let us fill your brain with the most useless information about Whos and Thems. This week: Gregg Sulkin (remember him?), Jennifer Meyer, Laura Perlongo's new baby, Perrie Edwards, and... Mr. Sunday. Who is Mr. Sunday? Well, you'll just have to tune in to find out.
Your calls will not go unanswered! This week on Who's There: James Marsden (Who or Them?), the Cooking Channel (Who or Them?), Violetta Komyshan (Who is she?) and Brooke Candy (Ditto.) Plus: Haylie Duff's America is an actual TV show. We swear.
Is our national nightmare over? Can we finally put undecided-voter-turned-meme Ken Bone to rest? Hopefully this week's Who? Weekly will be the last we ever speak of this red sweater'd, indecisive man. Don't worry, we've also got a Billy Bush update, Meghan Trainor's new Whofriend, a Glee-Mumford marriage, Joe Jonas' rude-ass AMA, Colton Haynes' candle line(?) and Lo Bosworth's vagina...products. Yes: her vagina products.
Anyone remember #BillyBushThiccThighs? Do they haunt your dreams like they haunt ours? Turns out Billy Bush wasn't done embarrassing himself and our nation. That means his thighs are back in the news! Plus: Who is Leila George? Who are Dove Cameron and Ryan McCartan again? Zendaya's got a new app? And what's Rita up to?
First off: THE STICKERS ARE OUT! Whether you've been waiting for the Who? Weekly-themed iOS 10 sticker set (or perhaps you've never heard of it before), it's ready for your consumption. Use it to harass friends, family and enemies alike. On this week's Who's There? we unpack Jonathan Cheban for Australians, chat about Evan Rachel Wood and Ben Foster, and decipher which Peyton List is which (there are literally TWO of them). Plus: Scientologists and 9/11 Truthers.
This week were living for Daily Mail, who mixed up two Whos (we feel you!) and spotted a Them in...an unexpected place. Colleen Ballinger AKA Miranda Sings is getting a divorce (or is she?) and Halsey is getting the Nobel Peace Prize. Or something. Plus: Joe Simpson is a photographer now and no one remembers Stacy Keibler except for Us Weekly. EXCLUSIVE: We bring back "Good Form, Bella Thorne" and find out what Rita's up to.
*plays Jock Jams music* Are...You...Ready!!!!!!! for another episode of Who's There – the one where YOU dictate what we talk about. This week we get the Real Deal from across the pond on The Great British Bakeoff from our Whom? Correspondent, Jonno. We also talk Rob & Chyna (again), Blanket "Bigi" Jackson, Shark Tank and tell you whether or not Marion Cotillard is a Who or Them. Plus: Lindsey's amazing game where Bobby (and you! at home!) guess which #Brangelina tabloid headline belongs to which tabloid.
What's in her bag? The bag of Piper Perabo, that is. Who is she? We'll figure that out for you. We'll also figure out why people are freeeeeaking out about The Great British Bakeoff and why England only has two TV channels (unverified, but feels true). Plus, a live Who birth streamed on Facebook Live and our favorite Country Who got hitched!
R.I.P. #Brangelina, Long Live Who? Weekly!!!!!!! Let's talk the only good thing that happened at the Emmys and Rob & Chyna's extremely depressing reality show. Plus, a listener calls in and explains something sports-related (nice!) and we update you, our listeners, on the Who/Them status of the former members of One Direction. Also, what's the Who'iest charity? #CanUKnot
Another week, another amazing publicist. This time it's Naya Rivera's – who managed to get the tea she spills in her new book all OVER the goddamn place. With a name like Savvy Shield, what else would you do other than win Miss America? Plus, a Vine star feud for the ages and the agony of a DJ due called The Chainsmokers. "Soul Sister", someone named Law Slagsvol and Rita's debut in the "50 Shades of Grey" trailer – if you blink, you'll miss it.
Who's There: Hari Nef & The Great British Bake Off?
We're taking your calls and that means we're talking The Great British Bake Off, Hari Nef, Kate Upton and the TODAY Show. Plus, more about Billy Bush's thick thighs (!), Bobby's run-in with his arch nemesis (!!) and how to use Siri to determine a Who (!!!).
Did you miss us? Love lost (Taylor and Tom Hiddleston!), love found (Elizabeth Gilbert and Rayya Elias?) and love...truly we don't know ("Minka Kelly, Wilmer Valderrama ‘Stopped Dating’ After Brief Romance Rekindling"). Meanwhile, we totally missed the Who-y line-up of this season's Dancing With the Stars, the time Molly Sims barfed on the highway and...Burning Man. Kinda.
We love you, we'll miss you, but this week we're taking a small vacation from the Whos. Don't worry: we'll recommend some good podcasts for you to listen to while we're away. Wait, but how will you know what Rita's up to? Hm, well, guess you won't. See you next Monday!
A few days late, sure, but people are still wondering: WHO WERE ALL THOSE PEOPLE AT THE VMAS? Seriously, that red carpet was elbow-to-elbow with Whos, and we're here to pick through 'em all (and answer YOUR questions) on who was....Who.
We'll have you your Very Special MTV VMAs episode this Thursday (call in with questions, if you got 'em!), but for now we're tackling WHAT is happening on the cover of last week's Us Weekly (Hint: "Bachelor in Hades" is what we're calling it), Mark Steines and his new wife, Julie Freyermuth (and her dog, Norbert), Chrisley Knows Best(???) and Emily Ratajkowski. Plus: RITA.
The Who? Weekly hotline is heating up!!!!!!! We're hearing all your calls and this week we're tackling some of the FAQ of the week: firstly, that huge Bella Thorne news. Come on, you know it. Also, who the HECK is Bronte Blampied and is that a real name? Plus: Jinger Duggar, "OG" Maci Bookout and whooooo is the "Alicia" on the cover of September Vogue?

Plus, the guy who keeps Justin Bieber alive and the girl who may or may not be dating him. Plus: Is Australia a Who? Can countries be Whos? Can someone tell Ryan Lochte to cut it out? (That last question isn't in the episode; it's just some good advice.)
It's a Very Special Olympics episode! Prematurely grey-haired national treasure Ryan Lochte may swim like a Them, but he does literally everything else like a Who. Plus: is your favorite Olympic sport a Who or a Them? Who is Rachel Platten doing ads for now? Do you know what "slalom" means? And can you guess who was caught in sexy lederhosen? Of course you can.
Jai Courtney, Justin Trudeau, and the most important question of our time: is Josh Charles a Who or a Them? follow that with the *second* most important question of our time: can you tell the difference between Dylan McDermott and Dermot Mulroney?
Long time, no #whodat, you say? We agree. Call Your Girlfriend's Aminatou Sow and BuzzFeed's Shani Hilton are back to tell us all about what we've missed: the R/DNCs, Keke Palmer's meme, Tweet and her new pastor boyfriend, Rudy Huxtable's mess, Oprah's new BFF Colson Whitehead, Mary J's future ex Kendu Isaac, the Whos on Obama's birthday party invite list and... The Olympics. Plus: Bone apple tea. You'll see.
Charlotte McKinney, Doutzen Kroes, Nicola Peltz and something we've all been asking ourselves in the past few weeks: which Pokémon are Whos and which are Thems? Plus, why Jesse Tyler Ferguson is Bobby's nemesis and who are the Internet's boyfriends (and what does it mean to be one?)
Troian Bellisario, you in danger, girl. (Also, who are you?) Chloë Grace Moretz's speech at the Democratic National Convention finally gives us something worth voting for. Tyler Posey is NOT gay, despite what his Snapchats may have promised. A brand new quiz featuring Wholeb baby names and the new cast of Celebrity Big Brother. Plus, Rita!
We had our very first live show last week, thanks to the fine people of IRL Club and The Bell House in Brooklyn, NY. If you were there, we love you. If you weren't there, don't worry, we've got a great recap of all things Who? Weekly LIVE! featuring the talents of Mariah Smith (Keeping Up With The Kontinuity Errors) and Allie Jones (500 Days of Kristen). Plus, Rita! And live laughter!
The biggest star of this week? The Notes app, duh. Taylor Swift's Notes app, to be more specific. On this week's Who's There? you asked about the Whos surrounding the whole Kim-Kanye-Taylor mess and answered. Also: Portia de Rossi, ranking the Chris(es) and...AISHA TYLER.
*opens Notes app* .And you thought we couldn't handle politics. A wholitician visits Chilli's, a Playboy playmate does a bad Snapchat, a Dancing With The Stars couple reveals the gender of their Dancing With The Stars fetus, a 72 year old knocks up a 29 year old, an actress wants to breastfeed her child...FOREVER.

Abandon your Pokémon Go for 30 minutes, please, what we have here is a brand new episode of Who? Weekly!!!!! Mischa Barton and Kaley Cuoco express themselves in Instagram, a Vanity Fair profile of Margot Robbie doesn't help us AT ALL and we debate whether Ciara (who recently had sex, did you hear?) is a Who or a Them. Plus: Rita is *still* in the running to be the host of America's Next Top Model. You heard us.
Who's there? Well, an episode 95% about Taylor Swift's July 4th celebration because we're nothing if not thankful that you, the listeners, called in to ask WHO THE HECK everyone was. Whos, Thems, a depressed Ryan Reynolds: we have the answers. Also, a quickie on The Other Chris Evans and the Who'iest sponsorships.
To cap off your July 4th weekend, we're chatting Karlie Redd (and the world of Love and Hip Hop), Elizabeth Gilbert (and her store of trinkets), Lo Bosworth (and her can of pumpkin) and Haylie Duff (and her container of cream cheese).
