- Pop Chaser -But What Do I Want For Christmas? Just For 'RHONY' To Get Better
I'd get in trouble by Luann's music producer for riffing on his lyrics, but it is the truth, you guys! I've long said that RHONY is my ride or die Housewives franchise, but things are looking very... bleak. After spending too many episodes in Salem, Tuesday's episode subjected us to listening to the Housewives sing Luann's new Christmas song and watching Ramona lust after a group of 30-something year old men at her birthday party. Mom, can you come pick me up?!
On today's Pop Chaser, someone made the bold decision to give me full control over the episode and host it all by myself. I feel like Jason Derulo in "Ridin' Solo," you guys. It is chaotic, it is fun, and I only recorded myself singing that one godforsaken line from Luann's Christmas song 15 times before using my better judgement and cutting it from the episode. My future self will thank me for this.
In addition to Lu's venture into the holiday music genre, I talk about The Bachelorette's Men Tell All special, Adam Driver's new fragrance commercial (smells like horse), and which actor Twilight author Stephanie Meyer envisioned as Edward Cullen while writing the books. I also get political and rank the Twilight movies, since they're all on Netflix now and we're all thinking about it.
(For inquiring minds, the answer is Twilight, Breaking Dawn Part 2, New Moon, Breaking Dawn Part 1, and then Eclipse. Don't even know what happened in that last one, but I have a theory that third movies in a franchise suffer... yes, including Prisoner of Azkaban.)
