Plus they explain why Kyle NEEDS to be questioned heavily at the reunion for her behavior all season long throwing Sutton under the bus.

    Deepti, Haley and Larkyn have not fully investigated Mary and do not support what sounds like her potential cult-like involvement so THAT aside....oh my god they cannot get enough of the MARY scenes! She is so comically enterTAINing. They also discuss theories of Lisa's  involvement in caterer-gate. And Larkyn gives the listeners some great inside SLC gossip about some of the tangential people on the show!

    Thank you to all the listeners!!! Pop Culture Prisoner has reached the 100 episode mark! CHEERS!!!!!Deepti and Haley celebrate the 100th episode with tangents on...Indian people? Yes it's true. Don't worry, they get to RHOBH soon enough. Learn a little history of Deepti's family at the beginning of episode 100 lol. And also about Haley's supposed other Indian friends. This is the penultimate episode of a pretty enticing season of RHOBH. Deepti and Haley express their absolute exasperation at Erika's personality shifts, WOW it was absolutely bananas.

    Deepti, Haley and Larkyn currently cannot get enough of Mary and really try to understand what on EARTH is going on with her and Robert, Jr. They end up being more sympathetic than they realized they would be with Meredith's "side of the story" in the fight with Jen, even though both of them are just pretty hard to take right now! Finally, be prepared for some pop culture tangents as they (sort of) semi-relate to this episode!

They discuss a heartbreaking "vulnerable" moment that actually read more like a cult meeting when Garcelle  shares what it's like to be in her skin in life so often.  And per usual, they discuss Erika's latest moments on the show. Haley also has a hysterical side anecdote about watching the show "Dear White People" - enjoy!

    Deepti, Haley and Larkyn are here to guide you through  exactly why they're very into this season but actually aren't rooting hard for anyone?? Haley and Larkyn reveal that they still kind of like Heather but Deepti cannot get over "reunion-Heather" at all. But they do all agree that Mary is A FORCE on screen currently! A crazy force with a crazy house. Also, listen in for their analysis of Whitney and her astonishment at how you have to ... work? ... when you have a business.

They throw their arms in the air and perhaps screech a bit at the INSANITY that is Erika's absurd handling of her affairs these days. The LIES at this point are, as evidenced in an absolutely amazing dinner scene with PK/Dorit/Mauricio/Kyle, HILARIOUS. Deepti also gets Haley to try to figure out if Harry Hamlin being with Rinna makes her ANY more decent of a person? They also intensely analyze the entire psyche and actions of Garcelle and Crystal. Tune in for all the hot deets!

    Deepti is back with her trusty co-hosts Haley and Larkyn to discuss the season premiere of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City! They had to really refresh their memories on the various changing alliances on the show. But some things are for certain, Jen Shah is still nuts and Mary still scares us all with that cult of hers (but damn her comedic timing still cracks us up). These thoughts and many more on the rest of the caste inside this PCP episode!

    Deepti and Dina are incensed on behalf of Dorit that everyone keeps dragging her! Drag ERIKA not DORIT! Well this episode of RHOBH confused Deepti and Dina yet again and they explain exactly where the disconnects are in the women's motivations and actions this season. WHY is Kyle insisting that Sutton is weak?? She has laid everything she feels about Erika out on the table. It's wildly confusing. Listen in for all the hot takes.

    RHONY discussion begins around 46 min 50 sec mark.Yet another Beverly Hills episode for Deepti and Dina to trash Erika's pathetic hypocrisy. They analyze how poorly Erika is playing the cameras in this episode at Kathy's dinner party. And try to figure out what TF is going on with Kyle. And with this whole episode really - it was a very confusing episode where things almost seemed out of order because people were jumping all over the place in their thoughts about Erika. Deepti and Dina also try to  understand Crystal as a person with all her food emphasis. Finally RHONY has ended. Deepti and Dina give their final thoughts on the most lackluster season of what has used to be  the greatest franchise ever.
