[00:00:30] CHELSEY DONN: Hello.

[00:00:32] TREY GERRALD: Well, hello there and hello listeners. Welcome to Review That Review, the podcast dedicated to reviewing.

[00:00:39] CHELSEY DONN: reviews. That's Trey Gerrald.

[00:00:42] TREY GERRALD: And that is Chelsey Donn. And together we are.

[00:00:46] VOICEOVER: The Review, Queen,

[00:00:50] TREY GERRALD: But before we review reviews, ChelseyBD 'I need to know, is there anything that you need to

[00:00:56] VOICEOVER: Lodge, A, Complaint.

[00:00:57] TREY GERRALD: today?

[00:00:58] CHELSEY DONN: In fact, 'I do. 'I would like to speak to the manager, if that's okay. You know, 'I never like to call out particular restaurants or businesses because what we do is really try to lift up, but every once in A', while 'I gotta call someone out, right? 'I just, I'm A', Queen and 'I need to do it. And so there's this restaurant called Paquito Moss.

It's A' Mexican.

[00:01:22] TREY GERRALD: is that small More.

[00:01:23] CHELSEY DONN: A' little more.

[00:01:24] TREY GERRALD: Oh, oh.

[00:01:25] CHELSEY DONN: It's in A' and 'I really like it. And actually my boss has me go there all the time for her and her kids. And every single time, every single time 'I go there, they get the order wrong. Every time. No. Every time 'I used to order it on the phone, 'I was like, maybe the phone is the issue.

So now 'I order it in person. Then when 'I order it on person, 'I 'I, literally 'I am like, A' crazy person. I'm like, can you repeat the order back to me? 'I, repeat it back. 'I go. Can you just repeat it back one more time? 'I. Just to assure that we're both on the same page. Now my boss and her kids are vegetarian, so that's why it, this becomes an issue.

One of the kids is not vegetarian, but all of the other ones are 'I. Went there again yesterday. Same thing. Pickup food for the boss. Ordered three, just bean burritos, no cheese 'I. Don't know why they like it that way. Whatever. 'I don't wanna yuck their yum. But that's what these kids like cuz they don't eat cheese or meat.

They're vegan. And then one chicken burrito. Thank God 'I checked before 'I left because they gave me two chicken tuban, which means 'I would've gotten home and instead of three and one, they gave me two and two, and somebody wouldn't have had food and it would've been A' whole thing. And 'I, just like 'I went to tell the woman there was A' mistake, and she was like getting annoyed with me.

Now my question is, 'I go there all the time. They always get my order wrong. My boss goes there on her own. They always get her order wrong. How are you even gonna act surprised or annoyed when someone comes up to you and is like, you got it wrong. 'I mean eventually she did say like, oh, 'I, read it wrong.

'I did it wrong. Okay, fine. Like, I'm not here to like chastise you, but don't make me feel bad that I'm coming up here. 'I being like, yeah, make me another burrito. Like, come on, let's go. 'I. Gotta get outta here. 'I got things to do. 'I don't have all day to sit here to have you remake the food constantly.

Constantly, and it's just annoying because they like this restaurant. The restaurant's fine, 'I, like the people that work there, they seem very nice. But why? Why does this keep happening?

[00:03:30] TREY GERRALD: That's very frustrating. I'm also like pearl clutching at the fact that they would be retaliating in temperament when it's like that's

[00:03:39] CHELSEY DONN: felt like A' full Karen, and like maybe 'I was coming on strong cuz 'I was on the clock. And sometimes when you're like on the clock and you know the list you have to do and you know like what's expected of you. Maybe 'I was like A' little bit coming at her, but she was like not putting out the fire, you know what 'I mean.

Like 'I was like, please can we just remake this? She was not happy.

[00:03:58] TREY GERRALD: Did you say this keeps happening?

[00:04:00] CHELSEY DONN: said, this happens every time 'I come here. Yeah, it does. Like every single time 'I come here, this is why 'I like went over the order multiple times, you know? And it's just like staring at me like I'm A' crazy person, which maybe 'I was,

[00:04:14] TREY GERRALD: No 'I. Hear this, Complaint. That's really frustrating, you know? It's interesting because when our nephew, Denver stays with us, he loves to get Chipotle

[00:04:22] CHELSEY DONN: yeah.

[00:04:23] TREY GERRALD: so we ordered Chipotle and very similar. David is A' vegetarian, so he cannot have meat on his and they will like completely mess it up. So much so that we stopped ordering it from the app and then 'I did it from Uber Eats or whatever, and they got it wrong again.

[00:04:40] CHELSEY DONN: 'I know 'I. Don't know if they're not reading the like specific instructions that say like sands meat or whatever it says, but something about, maybe it's like the vegetarian of it all, but like really it's A' problem, 'I.

[00:04:52] TREY GERRALD: Maybe they just go into like autopilot and they're just like scooping everything and they're not paying attention. But that is the whole point. You're constructing from nothing, so you should just be going down the itemized

[00:05:03] CHELSEY DONN: Exactly. Yes. Exactly. So

[00:05:05] TREY GERRALD: frustrating. 'I hear that, especially when it comes to food preparation cuz you're so hungry, then

you're just hangry.

[00:05:11] CHELSEY DONN: And also when you're working, cuz you're like on the clock and you're like, 'I, don't have time for this, you know? All

[00:05:16] TREY GERRALD: tell you should tell your boss if, um, they want to keep ordering from this place, then they need to add half hour onto your

[00:05:22] CHELSEY DONN: Exactly. Exactly. That's right. They need to add A' half an hour of therapy to my week every

[00:05:28] TREY GERRALD: Yes, exactly. 'I. Hear you. Very good Complaint Boy, do 'I hate A' incorrectly prepared order, especially when you anticipate it happening, and then it does happen, and then they match you with rudeness.

[00:05:42] CHELSEY DONN: rudeness. Yeah. Mm-hmm. And I'm compassionate, but you know, 'I can't. All right, that's my Complaint

[00:05:49] TREY GERRALD: Good Complaint.

[00:05:49] CHELSEY DONN: 'I. Feel better. I'm gonna exhale. Let that go. All right. Well, now that I've complained and you validated me, should we jump into some online reviews and validate or not validate someone else's opinion?

[00:06:03] TREY GERRALD: 'I. Love it. Let's do it. Let's.

[00:06:06] VOICEOVER: Review, That, Review.

[00:06:10] CHELSEY DONN: As you know, we are your trustee. Review Queen. We bring in reviews from the internet that we feel need to be inspected.

[00:06:18] TREY GERRALD: We read you A' review, then we break it down and rate the impact of that review on A' scale from zero to five crowns. Now this is A' very regal process that we call.

[00:08:33] CHELSEY DONN: Okay, so when 'I, like when it first came in the mail and 'I was giving it A', little shaky shake. That's why 'I got scared. When you said bug heart like it, it almost sounded like, is it pills? 'I mean? It's got A' little shake. Rattle and roll.

[00:08:48] TREY GERRALD: What does it feel like in there? 'I mean? It's, it's A' little, tiny product inside of this giant eight by 12

[00:09:31] CHELSEY DONN: I've definitely tried like A', Sephora, 'I. I've like sampled some of their products, but I've never tried this one. Oh my God. Trey.

[00:09:39] TREY GERRALD: Have you ever used A' lip plumping product in your life?

[00:09:51] TREY GERRALD: 'I have, but I've never tried lip venom, but 'I do. Remember A' girl named Sarah Gibbons in my high school? She had lip, venom and 'I was so scared and intrigued by the name that was back in

high school.

[00:10:04] CHELSEY DONN: this like an og?

[00:10:06] TREY GERRALD: Yes. So today's review is from 2007, so lip venom, to my understanding, the doop company, they were the first to come up with this concept of A' stinging plumping lip product.

This is years before Kylie Jenner or Kendall or whoever.

[00:10:27] CHELSEY DONN: Kylie was right.

[00:10:28] TREY GERRALD: All right, so why don't we pause?

[00:10:30] CHELSEY DONN: Okay. Oh my

[00:10:31] TREY GERRALD: and 'I are gonna go to the after show. We're going to actually unbox, we're gonna apply, we're gonna talk through the sensations, see what it feels like, and we will live review Doops, lip, venom, plumping bomb, original.

[00:10:46] CHELSEY DONN: we'll see if it affects our ability to speak

[00:10:50] TREY GERRALD: yes, exactly. And then we'll come back to the main show and we'll listen to Bug Hart. Kathy's review.

[00:10:55] CHELSEY DONN: Okay. 'I, can't wait.

[00:10:56] TREY GERRALD: B R B Z.

[00:10:57] CHELSEY DONN: B R b, 'I.

[00:11:01] VOICEOVER: Hold your crown. We'll be right back.

[00:11:28] TREY GERRALD: I'm just like, 'I can't stop looking.

[00:11:30] CHELSEY DONN: 'I know Trey's lips are definitely bigger. Mine 'I think are partially bigger. They hurt A' little bit, but here we are. We are back

[00:11:39] TREY GERRALD: We're back time machine. Woo.

[00:11:41] CHELSEY DONN: time machine. Time machine. Time machine,

[00:11:43] TREY GERRALD: So as teased, here we go. Today I'm gonna be sharing this one Star review.

[00:11:51] CHELSEY DONN: Viewpoints,

[00:11:52] TREY GERRALD: New source

[00:11:53] CHELSEY DONN: new source. Okay.

[00:11:55] TREY GERRALD: for Doop cosmetics. Lip venom, lip plumping original.

[00:12:02] CHELSEY DONN: Okay.

[00:12:03] TREY GERRALD: is written by Bug Hart, Cathy. This was written July of 2007. Bug hurt. Kathy's Subject is, beauty hurts but shouldn't be.

Caps this painful.

[00:12:18] CHELSEY DONN: Okay.

[00:12:19] TREY GERRALD: Here we go.

[00:12:21] CHELSEY DONN: Okay.

[00:12:22] TREY GERRALD: Astra Gastric the verdict. Dash Astra Gastric. Ouch. Get it off me. Astro Gastric. The fax dash Astro gastric. Made by A' company called Doop Lip. Phnom is A' product that is supposed to make lips look larger and plumper or bung like Goldie Han and the second Wives club.

[00:12:48] CHELSEY DONN: Second Wives Club. Get that outta here.

[00:12:52] TREY GERRALD: It comes in A', sinister looking small glass vial that has A' screw on lid. Attached to the lid is A' brush that is used to apply the venom. After applying the venom, the lips are supposedly plumped because the ingredients cause the blood to rush to the surface of the lips, swelling them slightly. These ingredients are essential oils of cinnamon, winter, green, and ginger. Lip denim tastes and smells strongly of cinnamon and is kind of refreshing at first. And then the pain sets in. 'I have no idea if this product actually works as stated, because 'I cannot bear to have it on my face for more than five minutes. Every time 'I have tried to use lip Phnom 'I am amazed at the super shiny finish of the gloss.

But within five minutes, 'I am running around like A' crazy woman trying to find something to wipe the goo off of my lips with it burns so badly that 'I cannot take it and have to remove it and press cold compresses to my lips for A' half hour afterward.

[00:14:20] CHELSEY DONN: Hello.

[00:14:21] TREY GERRALD: The problems. This causes extend beyond the border of your lips.

Not only does it irritate my lips, but the skin around it too, which become red and itchy. Plus, what if you kiss someone, their lips would get sticky and stingy, too. Asterisk, asterisk, star, power, dash, asterisk, asterisk. Asterisk, one star, asterisk dash, 'I. Want my mommy?

[00:14:55] CHELSEY DONN: No.

[00:14:56] TREY GERRALD: 'I? Wouldn't wish this product on my worst enemy.

I'm throwing this one in the trash. Dot, dot, dot. Except 'I. Don't even wanna throw it in the garbage because God forbid, A', raccoon or some other poor little animals go picking in there and get this on themselves. Bottom line. No. 'I would not recommend this to A' friend.

[00:15:25] CHELSEY DONN: All right. Second Wives Club. You lost me at Second Wives Club. Honestly.

[00:15:30] TREY GERRALD: Why did they say the second wives club?

[00:15:33] CHELSEY DONN: Mean 'I can't trust anybody that that says.

[00:15:36] TREY GERRALD: Isn't that the whole plot? That they're

the first

[00:15:39] CHELSEY DONN: wives. 'I mean 'I just bugs. You lost me. You lost me. At second Wives 'I. Don't know. Let's listen.

[00:15:49] TREY GERRALD: Wait, but that is A' cultural image that is totally ingrained in my brain. Is Li is Goldie Han going

[00:15:57] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah. Yeah.

[00:15:59] TREY GERRALD: so

[00:15:59] CHELSEY DONN: It's so good. But like also get it right. Yeah. 'I mean. 'I agree with some of the things that Bugs is saying, but it does make me feel like, oh my God, Trey 'I. 'I tried to drink coffee, but it looked like it was very difficult. 'I do think that some people are like more sensitive than others in several ways, and 'I feel like bugs is more sensitive.

Like even if 'I wasn't using it myself. So 'I had like A' real life comparison. 'I do feel like bugs is like blowing this out of proportion. A' little bit,

[00:16:32] TREY GERRALD: Well, you know, it's very extreme. It does seem like it's very extreme without giving away the after show, which we recorded already, 'I, am curious if the formula has been changed.

[00:16:43] CHELSEY DONN: 'I was wondering that too, but 'I definitely did taste the cinnamon. 'I said that from the beginning, like,

[00:16:49] TREY GERRALD: It does smell like cinnamon too.

[00:16:50] CHELSEY DONN: but then 'I don't see cinnamon on the ingredient list.

[00:16:54] TREY GERRALD: And you're right, 'I. Mean 'I do feel like this is A' product that some people will be more sensitive to than others.

[00:16:59] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah.

[00:17:00] TREY GERRALD: 'I mean it seems like A' very extreme reaction.

[00:17:04] CHELSEY DONN: What do you expect

[00:17:05] TREY GERRALD: called Venom

[00:17:06] CHELSEY DONN: lip venom. It's gonna make your lips bigger and like maybe if you're really sensitive, you should test out like A' tiny area or something like that. 'I don't know. 'I

[00:17:18] TREY GERRALD: 'I mean 'I. Don't know much about the website, but you know, it is interesting to me because they really, this really feels like early s unboxing YouTube videos where it's like, this is the facts. It is this product. It comes in this container. You have A' brush that you used to apply it.

[00:17:37] CHELSEY DONN: Asterisk.

[00:17:38] TREY GERRALD: 'I mean?

We gotta talk about the use of asterisk on the page. It's very beautiful actually.

[00:17:44] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah, I'm sure.

[00:17:44] TREY GERRALD: verdict. Ouch. Get it off of me. You know, that's A' specific. That's A'

[00:17:49] CHELSEY DONN: Get it off of me.

[00:17:52] TREY GERRALD: and

[00:17:54] CHELSEY DONN: The raccoon moment was A'. Little funny but

[00:17:58] TREY GERRALD: 'I mean. That's really sweet. Can you imagine actually like if A' little raccoon put on lip plumper?

[00:18:04] CHELSEY DONN: 'I 'I know 'I was thinking about it too. 'I don't know what? 'I. 'I. Maybe they would enjoy it. Who knows?

[00:18:09] TREY GERRALD: To say it burns so badly that 'I cannot take it and have to remove it and press cold compresses. That's so extreme.

[00:18:19] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah. What if 'I Kiss someone,

[00:18:22] TREY GERRALD: 'I. 'I mean 'I do 'I. Now 'I am very curious about that question because 'I wonder if 'I went and kissed David right

[00:18:26] CHELSEY DONN: David?

[00:18:28] TREY GERRALD: Would he? He's working downstairs. Would he get, would he get A' tangle? Like would it

[00:18:33] CHELSEY DONN: he, yes. 'I would think

[00:18:35] TREY GERRALD: now? 'I just had A' really? Adult centered thought.

[00:18:40] CHELSEY DONN: 'I am. Yes. 'I have the same. That would be bad. That would not 'I. Don't think that would be good.

[00:18:45] TREY GERRALD: Two girls, one venom. And then also 'I mean we just keep pointing to the extremity of this review. But 'I want my mommy very

[00:18:56] CHELSEY DONN: Oh my God. So funny and interesting. What do you think that BUGS does for A' living?

[00:19:02] TREY GERRALD: Well, they obviously didn't write Second Wives Club

[00:19:05] CHELSEY DONN: Clearly, clearly they're not in the entertainment industry.

[00:19:08] TREY GERRALD: You know, to me honestly, 'I think that Bug Hart Kathy really was like on the precipice of becoming like A' YouTube celebrity because it does feel to me like they're really trying to like be A' product reviewer. They're really like going for like, yeah, which 'I appreciate, but 'I don't think it's probably what their income source is.

What do you think they do?

[00:19:29] CHELSEY DONN: Hmm. 'I think they're like A', librarian 'I. Think there's somebody that like it has A' pretty vanilla life most of the time and was like looking to spice it up A' little bit and then just pushed it A' little bit beyond their envelope.

[00:19:47] TREY GERRALD: Can you imagine A' librarian with lip venom on

[00:19:50] CHELSEY DONN: Yes. 'I, can

[00:19:52] TREY GERRALD: work in that Dewey decimal system? With the shiniest most pouty

[00:19:55] CHELSEY DONN: the bun down and the glasses off and they put the venom on and woo. Librarian. Hello?

[00:20:03] TREY GERRALD: Spelling grammar is perfect on this there 'I, don't

[00:20:05] CHELSEY DONN: that's why 'I am getting like teacher vibes with all the asterisks, asterisks, asterisks, asterisks, A' with all.

[00:20:13] TREY GERRALD: They could be because there is A' real clear, beginning, middle, and edge like the very middle of this is. And then the pain sets in like, and it's separated on its own. It's very pretty on the page. Do we think they're being truthful or are they being shady?

[00:20:27] CHELSEY DONN: 'I think they're being truthful '

[00:20:28] TREY GERRALD: I do too. Yes. Which I'm 'I mean 'I. Don't want to give away the after show.

But 'I, wish 'I had had more of this experience.

[00:20:36] CHELSEY DONN: 'I know. Well, we could always put more on, should we put more on,

[00:20:40] TREY GERRALD: Yeah. Let's put more in. Hmm. This is like the fifth time I'm putting this on. Do you think this is common or fluky?

[00:20:47] CHELSEY DONN: 'I don't think it's necessarily common cuz 'I do think that it's like A'. Case by case. I'm gonna shake it A' little bit, even though it doesn't tell us too. I'm just gonna do it just for science 'I.

[00:20:57] TREY GERRALD: It's so thick though. It's not gonna like, you know, 'I feel like if it was really this extreme that you need A' cold compress, it would be like banned, don't you?

[00:21:05] CHELSEY DONN: Well, that's why I'm wondering, like, do you think they changed the recipe because the Kylie Minno, like, not, not Minogue, sorry, Kylie. Hey, Kylie Jenner controversy was like really big. Like people like, like had A', lot of injuries, 'I wanna say based off of like her product.

[00:21:20] TREY GERRALD: that was like A' suction thing, cuz that was like causing blood vessels to pop

[00:21:24] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah. So do you think like after that happened they like eased up?

[00:21:30] TREY GERRALD: 'I mean 'I would be curious to do some research and see if the formula changed.

[00:21:35] CHELSEY DONN: because personally, 'I feel it. And like, again, maybe Trey and 'I are like more masochistic or something like that, but like 'I, like it

[00:21:44] TREY GERRALD: 'I like it too. 'I. Wish it was more Wait, but now I'm like totally giving it away. 'I. 'I just can't stop. 'I really have turned into A'. Toker. 'I just like keep looking at myself and I'm like, pouting my lips.

[00:21:57] CHELSEY DONN: Well, we all know that Trey is beautiful. All right, so we don't think it's common, but we do think that there's humor,

[00:22:04] TREY GERRALD: it be this painful? What do you think? Mm. 'I.

[00:22:08] CHELSEY DONN: owie,

[00:22:09] TREY GERRALD: A'. We 'I mean 'I, can't!, 'I. Don't know. 'I. 'I would, 'I would really call into question the commonality of

[00:22:17] CHELSEY DONN: think so

[00:22:18] TREY GERRALD: so extreme.

[00:22:19] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah, it definitely feels extreme to me. 'I mean it definitely burns. I'm not gonna lie. Just put it on again, like 'I feel it, but I'm not,

[00:22:26] TREY GERRALD: 'I feel it

[00:22:27] CHELSEY DONN: not crying for my mommy.

[00:22:29] TREY GERRALD: I'm not crying for my mommy. And also, 'I kind of has the opposite reaction. Like 'I read the 'I review and 'I was like, oh my God. 'I want 'I,

[00:22:35] CHELSEY DONN: Right, right. Which again, maybe says something more about you and 'I

[00:22:39] TREY GERRALD: The marque

[00:22:40] CHELSEY DONN: Bug, than Bugsy, 'I.

[00:22:41] TREY GERRALD: Yeah. What do you think of humor though? Do you think that Bug's Heart, Kathy is intending to be funny.

[00:22:47] CHELSEY DONN: 'I 'I mean 'I would think they have to with like the raccoon and 'I. 'I.

[00:22:53] TREY GERRALD: You think that's funny? 'I thought that was serious.

[00:22:57] CHELSEY DONN: you think that they're serious.

[00:23:00] TREY GERRALD: Yeah. 'I mean they say, God forbid, 'I.

[00:23:03] CHELSEY DONN: 'I 'I.

[00:23:07] TREY GERRALD: What?

[00:23:07] CHELSEY DONN: So maybe they're not trying to be funny 'I, don't know. Beauty hurts.

[00:23:12] TREY GERRALD: Well they do say I'm running around like A', crazy woman. 'I. Think there's levity there. 'I think they're saying that comically. But 'I took the raccoon thing as being serious. 'I don't want A' little animal to hurt itself. It is stinging 'I. Feel it?

[00:23:24] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah, that's definitely Ouch. Get it off of me.

[00:23:28] TREY GERRALD: The verdict.

[00:23:29] CHELSEY DONN: Um, okay.

[00:23:30] TREY GERRALD: Well, and is there anything else to extrapolate from this 'I mean? What do you think? Like, do we have to take into account that it's A' very old review and it's possible that the formula has

[00:23:39] CHELSEY DONN: 'I do

[00:23:39] TREY GERRALD: Or does that not even impact you?

[00:23:41] CHELSEY DONN: 'I. Don't think that that impacts the review, but 'I think that that could impact the difference in our experience versus Kathy. So 'I don't wanna like fully write Kathy off as A'. Total. Just like hook, like 'I. Think maybe they did read Kathy's review Hooky.

[00:23:56] TREY GERRALD: Fluke. A' hook. What's A' Hook? A'.

[00:23:59] CHELSEY DONN: 'I don't know

[00:24:00] TREY GERRALD: Who got the hooch?

[00:24:02] CHELSEY DONN: It's

[00:24:03] TREY GERRALD: Wait. You know what? It's weird. This is for Patreon to watch, but when 'I press my lips together and then 'I let them go, my lips are like white,

[00:24:12] CHELSEY DONN: K 'I. Think 'I might kook. Mm-hmm. K.

[00:24:16] TREY GERRALD: kooky. You're so kooky.

[00:24:17] CHELSEY DONN: know why 'I said A'.

[00:24:19] TREY GERRALD: You know, like A'. Um, well, 'I don't even know what the politically term for this or this anymore, but you know when you press your skin and you let go, and you can see like the imprint of your hand is like A', wider shade. That's what happens when 'I press my lips together. My lips are like for two seconds, fully white.

That makes me scared.

[00:24:36] CHELSEY DONN: oh, were mine 'I. Don't think so.

[00:24:38] TREY GERRALD: mean I've literally put like eight levels on. I'm gonna be in pain tomorrow.

All right.

[00:24:44] CHELSEY DONN: This is hilarious. Let's crown, but let's Crown Bugsy.

[00:24:48] TREY GERRALD: All right, so ChelseyBD and 'I each have our own set of zero to five crown cards. In an effort to be fair and not influenced by one another, we will simultaneously reveal our rating.

[00:24:57] VOICEOVER: The Queens are Tabulating

to A' school.

[00:25:04] TREY GERRALD: I'm conflicted. I'm conflicted. I'm not looking

[00:25:07] CHELSEY DONN: Okay, 'I am putting my hand on.

[00:25:09] TREY GERRALD: Okay, 'I.

[00:25:11] CHELSEY DONN: Interesting. Trey is holding A' sting. Trey is holding up four crowns. I'm holding up two and A' half crowns. 'I went with two and A' half. 'I thought it was sort of like middle of the road in terms of whether or not 'I would believe Bugsy and 'I would think 'I. I'm gonna not order it. It's gonna be terrible.

'I. Do think that Bugsy is A'. Little bit dramatic with the mommy and like all of it. And the Second Wives Club, they really lost me at the Second Wives Club. 'I just couldn't. 'I was completely offended for Goldie Han, who is my dog. Goldie's, namesake, and 'I just really couldn't award them more than two.

And A' half crowns. As soon as 'I heard that. But in all seriousness, you did go ahead and buy the product. It didn't stop you from buying it. So 'I couldn't give more than two and A' half crowns for that reason. Pure research, um, on the ground. So that was why 'I went with two and A' half crowns. Why? For Trey?


[00:26:03] TREY GERRALD: say four, because 'I don't know if you can or cannot on viewpoints, but 'I would've loved an image. But ultimately, 'I really think on the page. It's really beautiful. 'I. Think that bug heart. Kathy does it. A' beautiful job of spelling out the entire journey of the pro of the product. 'I like that, they just tell you upfront, this is the verdict.

Uh, ouch. Get it off of me. They tell you like what the product is, you know how to use it. 'I think that's helpful cuz 'I did notice in some of my research that some of the reviews and questions on Amazon are like, what is the applicator?

So Bug Hart gives it away. There's A' beautiful narrative and you know, 'I wanted A' mirrored.

Experience to Bug Hart. So it actually had the opposite reaction, which made me want to buy the product, which is why 'I could not make it A', Review, Queen, but ultimately 'I like it 'I like the point of view. 'I like the concern for animal welfare and you know, it is unfortunate. 'I think they definitely did A' few auto correct passes here.

They were really concerned, but they didn't catch that they were misnaming, you know, A' classic Hollywood movie. So that's, that


[00:27:14] CHELSEY DONN: fail. Big

[00:27:16] TREY GERRALD: Yeah, 'I. Hope that no raccoons were harmed. And um, I'm not throwing mine out.

[00:27:20] CHELSEY DONN: No, I'm gonna be keeping mine. I'm keeping mine for sure.

[00:27:24] TREY GERRALD: All right, well, there we go. Lip venom.

[00:27:26] CHELSEY DONN: Lip then I'm feeling

[00:27:28] TREY GERRALD: Lip venom.

[00:27:29] CHELSEY DONN: stingy. An

[00:27:31] TREY GERRALD: Well, let's take our stinging and let's not throw it in the garbage.

Let's actually look at beautiful things. ChelseyBD, we have reached the most regal portion of our. Show ChelseyBD, who are you inducting today for? This plump.

[00:27:49] VOICEOVER: My, Royal, Highness.

[00:27:51] CHELSEY DONN: Thank you for asking Trey. I'm gonna get, I'm gonna get serious an email. 'I even wrote something out for today just because it felt appropriate, so, Obviously there's A' lot going on. We don't record this in real time, but we have the writer strike happening, and 'I wanted to take A' moment to just thank the people who put pen to paper, the story makers, the authors who move us, the rooms of writers who keep us entertained, lift us from depression, and allow us to connect to one another without writers.

There will be no stories or books, television shows to binge or movies to watch. No cliches to eye roll or tastemakers to praise. No way to recall the things we've forgotten or imagine new roads to wander. So to the people who are brave enough to share why it's enough to listen and foolish enough to persevere through it all.

Thank you. You are My, Royal, Highness, and thank you for continuing to do what you do.

[00:28:49] TREY GERRALD: You wrote that,

[00:28:50] CHELSEY DONN: 'I did.

[00:28:51] TREY GERRALD: that was so beautiful,

[00:28:52] CHELSEY DONN: thanks.

[00:28:53] TREY GERRALD: Yes, 'I mean 'I think it's goes without saying that ChelseyBD and 'I would definitely be out on the side of any members of the Writer's Guild and all those that are in pursuit of being A'. Member of the Writer's Guild, obviously ChelseyBD and 'I have A' love for the art of television, and television specifically has A' distinction against filmmaking, where A' filmmaking director is king, but.

When it comes to television, the writer is king, the writer is the executive producer. They have the final say. It is their beauty, their story, their creation. It is their world that everyone else gets to contribute to. And it's disgusting to me that we keep going in these. Patterns. This is not the first writer strike.

And you know, if you recall, the writer strike in the early aughts is what led to the rise of reality TV becoming king in the United States of America, which is disgusting in its own right. You guys, if we don't use our creativity to create fantastic explorations of what could be possible, then what is the point of being A' human?

[00:29:56] CHELSEY DONN: Agree.

[00:29:57] TREY GERRALD: We should all stand with all of the writers. Consider how bleak life would be. Without possibility and that's what it is to be A' writer and A' creator. So yes, we stand with the w g A' and hopefully if you don't know what we're talking about, I'll go Google it and look. It's really wild compensation.

People are insane. Everyone is so greeting gross. Speaking of join A' Patreon, but yes, 'I Concur. What A' beautiful induction. We all support the Writer's Guild of America. Yes indeed. Beautiful choice. ChelseyBD 'I. Love going A'. Little bit emo. Especially with this lip venom


[00:30:31] CHELSEY DONN: know, right? It's so hot and bothered, and woo.

[00:30:34] TREY GERRALD: 'I do feel A' little flashed 'I.

Do feel like 'I have A'. Little bit of A' headache and 'I. Wish that 'I could drink more coffee, but it's too complicated with A' lip in them.

[00:30:42] CHELSEY DONN: 'I know 'I. Do feel A'. Little hot. 'I not gonna

[00:30:44] TREY GERRALD: 'I. Feel A'. Little

[00:30:45] CHELSEY DONN: A'. Little heated, maybe that's like A' delayed reaction.

[00:30:48] TREY GERRALD: Well we did A'. Queen. That is another round on the R you A'. R q Han Ferris
