Sometimes a Trashy Divorce story is just a gateway to something much more delightfully awful! This week, Stacie has the trashy marriage and divorce (and on and on) of actress and model Pamela Anderson and Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee. But also: there’s a heist, some yak fur, a sex tape, and biker gangs terrorizing the porn industry! Seriously, this one goes places.

Then, Alicia has the four loves and losses of Lisa Marie Presley. ...

This week, we get up close and personal with Henry VIII’s sister, and deep dive into a very trashy listener request! Alicia has the three marriages of Margaret Tudor: daughter of Henry VII, one-time Queen of Scotland, legitimate Catholic divorcee, and mother of Scotland’s James V. Margaret’s story scandalized Christendom, at least until her brother lost his freaking mind.

Speaking of dudes losing their minds, Stacie has the very no...

This week, we’re putting a philandering British Prime Minister and a scion of Hollywood royalty under the Trashy Divorces microscope. Stacie has all the deets on Boris Johnson, a man who won’t say how many children he’s fathered, but has certainly mastered the art of failing upwards. Then, Alicia takes us back to the Golden Age of Hollywood for the first marriage and divorce of diva and screen legend Joan Crawford, to Douglas Fairb...

This week, we’re taking a look at a couple of American originals. Tennis legend Billie Jean King married her best friend Larry when they were a couple of lovestruck kids bonding over a tennis net. Alicia has the decidedly not trashy story of how Billie Jean came to terms with her sexuality, and how Larry supported her every step of the way. Though divorced, the pair remain permanent friends.

Come to the Cabaret!” This week, we have the stories of two people inhabiting a role: Luann de Lesseps, the Countess of Real Housewives of New York, and legendary actor and all around dapper fella Cary Grant. Stacie has the trashy Housewives tale of a young American who married into, and then divorced out of, European nobility, while Alicia spills some tea about...

It’s listener request time! This week, Stacie covers filmmaker James Cameron, who spent much of his adult life engaging in something like serial monogamy and abusing the heck out of his subordinates. When he wasn’t making actors pee in wetsuits, he was marrying and divorcing in quick succession, most notably to Terminator actress Linda Hamilton. Then, Alicia puts some realism into the man, the myth, the legend, John Lennon. Turns o...

This week, we take a look at two pretty singular individuals who might have been better off staying single. First up, Alicia has the shockingly trashy story of American architectural master Frank Lloyd Wright. This one really has everything: tons of dirtbag behavior, horrific true crime, and another one of those “great men” whose personal lives are garbage.

In a similar vein, Stacie remembers the 2009 cheating scandal that temporar...

Welcome to the end of Season 5 and another host’s choice edition of Trashy Divorces!

It’s all Judy Garland, all the time! This week, Stacie kicks us off with the mysterious and incredibly brief marriage between actress Renee Zellweger (who just won Best Actress for Judy) and country star Kenny Chesney. They tied the knot after knowing each other just five months, and when Renee filed to annul the marriage for “fraud” four months later, the media turned an ugly eye to Kenny.

You can’t talk Sinatra without eventually talking about some Kennedy trash, so in week four of Ocean's Eleven: 12 Degrees of Frank Sinatra, Alicia brings us the first ever Kennedy divorce. Patricia Kennedy Lawford, sister to JFK, RFK, and Ted, married Hollywood heartthrob Peter Lawford and probably expected he'd settle down. He did not, and after years of putting up with his addictions and affairs, she divorced him in 1966.
