    Braunwyn Windham Burke steps Behind The Rope. Braunwyn is here to chat about her experience before, during and after her two season run on the OG of them all, The Real Housewives of Orange County. Braunwyn breaks down the highs and lows of her time on RHOC and all that she faced during this time in the public eye - coming out as gay, revealing she is an alcoholic and showing what society still considers an “unconventional” marriage. Braunwyn holds nothing back in sharing the status of her sobriety, new relationship with girlfriend Victoria and everything else she has going on since leaving the show. Of course, we also break down just why the public did not believe her truth, the masses cried “fake” storylines, what really went on behind the scenes with Production and filming and how and why she thinks Bravo could have handled it all much differently. Finally we chat cast mates such as Vicki, Tamra, Shannon & Heather Dubrow, the breakup of her friendship with Noella and much more. All this as we conclude our epic two part chat with the one and only Miss Braunwyn Windham Burke.  @braunwynwindhamburke @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: RELIEFBAND - www.reliefband.com (20% off Plus Free Shipping.

    Earlier in the week we sat down and chatted with Gary Janetti. Today we re-share this chat with the one and only Brad Goreski. Brad Goreski steps Behind The Rope. Brad Goreski is a Celebrity Stylist who we know and love from some of TV's finest such as Fashion Police, The Rachel Zoe Project and It's a Brad Brad World. However, at one time in his life, a skin condition known as Rosacea forced him to shy away from the camera, if you can believe that. Along with Dermatologist, Doctor Shereene Idriss, Brad is here to explain what Rosacea is and what can be done about it. Thank you Brad and Dr. Idriss for bringing awareness to this chronic skin condition, for offering encouragement, and for bringing a face and name to this ever growing issue which can be treated. Of course, while we have Brad's attention, we had to discuss his time on Fashion Police, what it was like and would he ever consider a reboot. Of course, we also dive deep into RHOBH, Lisa Rinna and Real Housewives. We also discuss the new E Network Fashion / Beauty show he has in the works with the one and only NeNe Leakes. Brad also dishes on which Awards Show, he has done them all, is his favorite. He explains what the current state of Fashion is and how he thinks it will be forever changed. Finally, we catch up with Brad on all that he and husband Gary Janetti have been up to over the past few months and what else is next up for the power couple.

    Janice Dickinson steps Behind The Rope. Let me repeat that. Janice Dickinson. Icon. Living Legend in the Flesh. The World's First Supermodel. The Simon Cowell of America's Next Top Model. Reality TV veteran from before reality TV was reality TV a la Oxygen's “The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency”. In true Janice fashion, she - DOES - NOT - HOLD - BACK! Of course, we begin with a chat about Janice's early career where we talk about her then Supermodel colleagues Cindy Crawford, Elle Macpherson, Linda Evangelista, Kate Moss and last, but certainly not least, Tyra Banks and the many men in her life for a moment, a moment plus, or what could have been a moment, Mick Jagger, Sylvester Stallone, Simon Le Bon. Speaking of Tyra Banks, Janice was front and center for the first many cycles of the juggernaut hit “America's Next Top Model” as the most outspoken judge. Notoriously anti-plus size model, Janice has never shied away from controversy or speaking her mind. Janice opens up about how she clashed with Tyra, discusses Tyra's notoriously bad on set behavior and is kind enough, we asked, ok begged, to reveal secrets from behind the scenes of filming. As often happens here Behind The Rope, all roads lead to Housewives or, in this case, Housewives offspring and Kardashians. Janice shares her opinions on the current modeling industry and models like Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Delilah Belle Hamlin, Bella Hadid, Amelia Gray Hamlin, Hailey Baldwin and Kaia Gerber - how do they compare to the Icons of yesteryear and have they earned, or instead bought, their way in with money and / or a famous last name. We also address the current “influencer”, for lack of a better word, culture and how anyone with abs and a great pair of t*ts can be insta-famous. While we had Janice, and lucky we are to have been graced by the presence of royalty, we had to ask about her current relationship with Tyra and if she feels differently all these years later. We also pay homage to all, and we mean all, those other Reality TV shows she has been a part of: Botched!, Celebrity Big Brother, I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!, Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew and The Surreal Life.  @janicedickinson @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: ALLBIRDS - www.allbirds.com (Get Running Today with the Tree Flyer or Any Other Allbirds Products) RADIX REMEDIES - www.radixremedies.com (15% off Plus Free Shipping On Orders Over $35.

Literally, they serve food and drinks (thank you Joey) to their guests each week while they unpack never before heard tidbits from some of the entertainment business finest including, but not limited to, our BFFs from across the river Margaret Josephs and Dolores Catania and, well, yours truly (yup Behind The Velvet Rope appeared last week! - feel free to check it out). Thanks boys for all, especially for delivering Icon in the Flesh Miss Janice Dickinson Behind The Rope.

Mary chats real estate a la The Oppenheim Group, her new promo to boss of the O Group office and all the Season Five drama. Speaking of Season Five drama, we chat Christine - has she finally gone too far, Chrishell - we still have not accepted her breakup with Jason, Chelsea - newbie alert, Heather - wedding alert, Emma - top producer alert and much much more! Finally, we deep dive into the O Group's first ever Reunion - what needs to be resolved, what will probably remain unresolved, who needs to be let go, and of course, the absence of one Christine Quinn and all the social media controversy surrounding that. Whew, and we are only getting started! @themaryfitzgerald @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: DORMEO - www.dormeo.com/VELVET (15% Off Your First Purchase) LEMONADA MEDIA “BEING Trans” - (Out Now Wherever You Get Your Podcasts) MERCH Available at - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/behind-the-velvet-rope?ref_id=13198 Learn more about your ad choices.

    Matt James steps Behind The Rope. The bachelor is in the house. Forget all you have read, heard or think you know about Matt James because he is here to set the record straight. On the heels of his new book, “First Impressions”, Matt is here to mention it all. Matt talks about the highs and low of his Bachelor experience, the pressure the world placed on him as “the first Black Bachelor”, and how he dealt with that pressure while staying true to himself, and his heart, in his much publicized journey for love. Of course, we all know how that worked out. Matt chats the full trajectory of his relationship with Rachael, what she thought of him writing this book and where they are today. Of course, we also chat Matt's BFF, or as we like to call him, his boyfriend, Tyler Cameron, his DWTS appearance which led to a friendship with the one and only Miss Kenya Moore - RHOA Shout Out - and everything in between.  @mattjames919 @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: DORMEO - www.dormeo.com/VELVET (15% Off Your First Purchase) LEMONADA MEDIA “BEING Trans” - (Out Now Wherever You Get Your Podcasts) MERCH Available at - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/behind-the-velvet-rope?ref_id=13198 Learn more about your ad choices.

    Margaret Josephs steps back Behind The Rope. What a #RHONJ season! Marge is here to break down all that we have seen over the past epic season - Jackie's brave struggles with eating, Jennifer's aftermath of Bill's affair, throw in some Dolo and Mel and of course, the central falling out between her and Tre regarding one Mr. Luis Ruelas. Of course, on the heels of tomorrow night's premiere of the three part RHONJ reunion, Margaret talks about what we really can expect, Andy Cohen's frustration, House Husband walk offs, and how all of the cast's relationships will never ever be the same again. Raw and unfiltered, Margaret Josephs like you have never heard her before. Hey, it pays to be a friend of a Housewife and not some blogger looking for clout (thanks for the WWHL shout out Marge!) Finally, looking ahead to next season, we discuss where does this fractured cast, specifically her relationship with Tre, go from here and how can filming begin a “rumored” few weeks from now. @therealmargaretjosephs @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef BONUS & AD FREE EPISODES Available at - www.patreon.com/behindthevelvetrope BROUGHT TO YOU BY: DORMEO - www.dormeo.com/VELVET (15% Off Your First Purchase) LEMONADA MEDIA “BEING Trans” - (Out Now Wherever You Get Your Podcasts) MERCH Available at - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/behind-the-velvet-rope?ref_id=13198 Learn more about your ad choices.

    What a #RHONJ season! We have a finale people and a reunion trailer like no other. No fear, your new fav Miss Kim D. is here to break it all down. F bombs and all, Kim don't hold back when it comes to how she really feels about Luis referencing his 50,000 square foot love bubble nest he shares with Tre - it is 17,000 square feet to be exact, his private jet and the fact that Tre can apparently quit the show and never work again. Kim shares her recent texts from Dolo, what we can expect from next week's reunion with house husband walk outs, b*tch boy references, Bill Aydin's chance to speak, speak, speak, no love loss between The Marge - thank you for The WWHL Shout Out - and Tre and one seemingly epic breakdown from Daddy Cohen himself. All this and we are only getting started. You know you wanna listen!! @kimdposche @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef https://www.patreon.com/posts/65743160/edit Learn more about your ad choices.
