[00:00:39] CHELSEY DONN: Hello,

[00:00:40] TREY GERRALD: Oh, hey, Chelsey, and hello, listeners. Welcome, once again, to Review That Review. We are the podcast that is dedicated to reviewing. That's Chelsey Donn,

[00:00:55] CHELSEY DONN: and that's Trey Gerald.

[00:00:56] TREY GERRALD: and together we are,

[00:00:58] VOICEOVER: The Review Queens,

[00:01:02] TREY GERRALD: Chelsey, I can tell from the energy coming at me, I think you really need the stage, just to simply,

[00:01:09] VOICEOVER: Larger Complaint,

[00:01:11] CHELSEY DONN: you're

[00:01:11] TREY GERRALD: what's going on?

[00:01:12] CHELSEY DONN: right. Try one second.

[00:01:17] TREY GERRALD: Is this your complaint? Hair in your mouth.

[00:01:21] CHELSEY DONN: mean, I hate,

[00:01:23] TREY GERRALD: good. I was like, if that's a bit, I'm going to lose my mind.

[00:01:26] CHELSEY DONN: it's a bit, so yeah, that moment when you know that there is a hair in your mouth, You can feel the hair in your mouth, but you cannot find it to get it out.

[00:01:43] TREY GERRALD: I don't know. It would kill

[00:01:44] CHELSEY DONN: Oh my god, this happened to me, like, earlier this week and I immediately went and wrote it down because I was like, oh my god, that is so annoying.

It feels like I'm choking and then I'm like, have I lost my mind? Like, is there not a hair in my mouth? I'm like, if I don't have a mirror nearby, I'm pulling out my phone and taking pictures, trying to see it on the phone, like trying to do everything I can to get this phantom. Or real, I think it's real, hair out of my mouth, but it's so infuriating, and I know I'm a girl and I have longer hair, so I don't know, Trey, if you have this experience on the regular, but do you relate?

[00:02:27] TREY GERRALD: It does happen, yes, I have, there have been moments where I'm like, Oh, oh god, I have a, oh, there's like a hair or something in my mouth. Then you have to touch your tongue or like try to pick in your teeth or like you're trying to locate it and then you, especially if you're like in public with people, it feels even more terrible because it's like, I'm not crazy, I'm not weird, I just, I'm trying to, hold on,

[00:02:47] CHELSEY DONN: sorry, I'm so sorry, I'm just like, grabbing my tongue,

[00:02:50] TREY GERRALD: I'm sorry that that happened to you. Yes, I can absolutely validate that experience. It is very frustrating because it's your being, it's your body, you're feeling violated, you like can't fix it immediately, it's like very weird. That is definitely complaint

[00:03:02] CHELSEY DONN: thank you, I mean, it's not often that I find a new one that I'm like, yes, that, but, This was that for me. So thanks for adding it to the ledger.

[00:03:10] TREY GERRALD: Like a vault. Well, I hope it doesn't happen to you ever

[00:03:13] CHELSEY DONN: Thank you, I hope so too! And now that I've complained to gotten that hair out of the way, Thank God, I feel so relieved. Should we jump into an online review?

[00:03:24] TREY GERRALD: I think we should. Let's do it.

[00:03:25] CHELSEY DONN: Woo, let's do it.

[00:03:29] VOICEOVER: Review That Review,

[00:03:32] CHELSEY DONN: As you know, we are your trusty Review Queens. We bring in reviews from the internet that we feel need to be inspected.

[00:03:39] 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. It's a very regal process that we call,

[00:03:49] VOICEOVER: Assess That Kvetch,

[00:03:51] CHELSEY DONN: And Trey, it is your turn this week. What have you brought in for us? I can't wait.

[00:03:56] TREY GERRALD: Okay, get ready. I have a brand new source.

[00:04:00] CHELSEY DONN: Ooh, new source alert, new source alert.

[00:04:03] TREY GERRALD: Now, I don't know what this is, but I recognize it as an app.

[00:04:08] CHELSEY DONN: Okay.

[00:04:09] TREY GERRALD: like a Shein or it's like a copy of Amazon. Chelsey, do you know what Teemu is? T E M

[00:04:16] CHELSEY DONN: course I know about Timu.

[00:04:19] TREY GERRALD: Oh, I don't. So what is Teemu?

[00:04:21] CHELSEY DONN: I mean, I just get so many Timu ads like every single day, like it's out of control the amount of Timu ads that I get. But. I think of it as, I think it's like just coming directly from the distributor products that are cheaper than regular products that you're going to buy at a store, but it's also like One of those things where am I gonna get something that's actually valuable or is it gonna be like a dollar store item that's gonna fall apart.

A lot of their stuff looks really good and really practical. You want to order up and like am I gonna get it and it's gonna be not made very well, I guess is like my my thinking on it.

[00:05:02] TREY GERRALD: Right, well, I, it is a website, it's also an app, and the app, T E M U, has a tiny little icon of a dress, a tiny little rocking horse icon, a little, tiny little stiletto, and then like a tiny little purse, and when you're on the website, you can select your language, so it's obviously international, but yes, it's sort of like an Amazon.

So, today, I'm actually, yeah, I would imagine. So, today, I am going to share with you, um, no complaints, I'm going to share with you a five star review,

[00:05:33] CHELSEY DONN: Oh, interesting. Okay.

[00:05:35] TREY GERRALD: and I am unable to tell you the username, because it has been blacked out,

[00:05:41] CHELSEY DONN: Oh, okay.

[00:05:42] TREY GERRALD: But, we will be able to name them based on the review. So, for the purposes of going in chronological order, I'm just going to tell you, we're going to read someone's five star review for three pieces, multi color, polyester bedding set.

One piece, asterisk, duvet cover, plus two pieces, asterisk, pillowcase, without pillow core.

[00:06:13] CHELSEY DONN: Okay, this is worse than Supercala,

[00:06:15] TREY GERRALD: You know, they can't be a direct copy of Amazon, they have to do their own

[00:06:18] CHELSEY DONN: that deserves a Supercala,

[00:06:24] TREY GERRALD: Yeah, so, also it's um, I don't understand pounds, but this is 34 comma 39 pounds. The color is red wine. And I'll tell you, this product actually has 20, 595 reviews, with an average score of 4. 9.

[00:06:47] CHELSEY DONN: for just this product, what the hell, that's crazy,

[00:06:52] TREY GERRALD: know. Um, when you translate it to dollars, it's 38.

[00:06:57] CHELSEY DONN: I was just doing that,

[00:11:45] TREY GERRALD: gg, oh, oh, I don't know, or Peggy,

[00:11:49] CHELSEY DONN: Peggy, Mum Mum, Pop Pop, Gigi. Okay. Okay. Okay. All right. All right. That, I'm, first of all, I'm crying. Like actual real tears. Like, wow. Second of all, I feel like I just went on a journey of something. I don't know what it was because I didn't understand a lot of the sentences.

Obviously, we had a big problem with that. But I went on such a journey because Peggy, Let's just say, let's call this reviewer Peggy, because I believe it is. Peggy, at first it was like, Oh, she thought that she was writing a letter to her granddaughter when she was writing a review.

[00:12:31] TREY GERRALD: Like the gift card,

[00:12:32] CHELSEY DONN: like a gift card, like she thought like she was like, just write it.

Are you sending it to me so I can see it?

[00:12:36] TREY GERRALD: just so you can see, I, uh,

[00:12:42] CHELSEY DONN: which was like hilarious, like just like so funny. Um, and at first I was like, oh, this is really sweet, like a grandmother that's buying A duvet, like a whole bedding set for their grand, a devouet for their, for their granddaughter.

But then, we get into the motherfucker section,

[00:13:03] TREY GERRALD: I know, I

[00:13:08] CHELSEY DONN: on a, I was on like Space Mountain or something when it was like, we're like, we're on up, up, up, up, up, up, turn, turn, like what, what happened like with the motherfucker section, okay, and then.

Did it say in the beginning, it was like, reach for the stars, girl, I know that you're gonna shine, love this, like,

[00:13:29] TREY GERRALD: Please, for the love of God, come down and get your motherfuckin shit out of my motherfuckin house.

[00:13:33] CHELSEY DONN: like, what, like, what do we, what, what happened? Like, did we, like? It was just it it was very strange change it almost made me think like does grandma have this on speak to speech or

[00:13:46] TREY GERRALD: That's what I thought, Chelsey, yes, that's what I thought, that's why I picked this, yes.

[00:13:51] CHELSEY DONN: Okay, and and like she was like having this like writing this letter to her granddaughter, but then she was also like Get your fucking shit out of here, don't you, I'm doing something and you're Shit has been here, forget it's the vote, okay? It's my birthday on Thursday, and I hope that you and Steve and, and Linda and Gary and whoever are gonna be there and just give me a second, I'm writing a review here!

Like, that, that, that's what I thought was the energy that was coming off of Peggy for me, and I'm just so Confused. Obviously, this is not a review. Obviously, there is just so much spelling and grammar, but boy, am I glad that you brought this in, Trey.

[00:14:40] TREY GERRALD: So this is what, okay, so as far as value, new, useful information, I don't know what has to do with the polyester bedding set, but the narrative I'm getting here is, I, I agree. I also think that the grandmother was buying this for the granddaughter and sort of went into like, you better read for the stars, girl, do you deserve much more?

You're going to love this one. Like, it seems like they thought it was like the gift card. And then they're like. Then it's that like weird mother grandmother manipulation bullshit where it's like

[00:15:11] CHELSEY DONN: Oh my, but let's make this about me.

[00:15:13] TREY GERRALD: it's my birthday is Thursday and you know what birthday gift I want as I want all five of you kids and the fourth one I guess died so we don't include number four I want you to all come together be in the same room we'll say our Hail Marys you know and

[00:15:26] CHELSEY DONN: like religious agenda. There was this like weird religious agenda in the middle of it too. And then from the same person that's saying motherfucker. It's like so confusing. Like I

[00:15:35] TREY GERRALD: very

[00:15:36] CHELSEY DONN: I have, I'm just really feel like I'm on a roller coaster.

[00:15:39] TREY GERRALD: yeah it's so bizarre and do you think that Peggy is mom mom? They can't be pop maybe oh cuz the grandma's buying for the grandfather too. That's very

[00:15:47] CHELSEY DONN: So I'm trying to like be like, okay, if this is like the speak to speech thing, or grandma just had a moment of like, I don't know what in the middle of writing this card, like, do we think that it would probably just read like, reach for the stars, you know, how special you are, like, I know you're gonna shine.

I hope you love this. I love you all so much. And then the sign off? Or do you think that this was like, intentional?

[00:16:12] TREY GERRALD: I think that you could have a wicked sense of humor and be like But still get your shit out my house like that could be funny and don't forget my birthday's on Thursday And my wish is to have everyone in the family come anyway. I hope that happens soon I love you Peggy like that could be a funny card, but why all

[00:16:29] CHELSEY DONN: like who would think that they could write this much in a card usually we're like spaced out at 20 characters You know

[00:16:35] TREY GERRALD: Well, maybe Peggy was surprised they weren't being cut off.

[00:16:39] CHELSEY DONN: maybe now that I'm looking at it It doesn't look as long as it felt when you were reading it might maybe

[00:16:45] TREY GERRALD: Well, because I did every space and comma and period. Like, what's up with all of the spaces in

[00:16:51] CHELSEY DONN: space, comma, space, space, comma, comma, comma, at

[00:16:55] TREY GERRALD: because whenever I do text to speech, it doesn't do punctuation, and that becomes frustrating for me. But this is overloaded with

[00:17:01] CHELSEY DONN: No, when you actually that's not true. It's someone that

[00:17:04] TREY GERRALD: Oh, really?

[00:17:05] CHELSEY DONN: when you're doing speech attacks. I'm always like, can't wait to record, exclamation point, see you at three, exclamation point,

[00:17:14] TREY GERRALD: Oh, you're saying them though,

[00:17:17] CHELSEY DONN: right?

[00:17:18] TREY GERRALD: but do you think Peggy is saying comma, comma, comma?

[00:17:22] CHELSEY DONN: If the speech, you're right. No,

[00:17:25] TREY GERRALD: Where do you think Peggy is

[00:17:26] CHELSEY DONN: unless she's saying, comma, comma, comma, comma. You know what I mean? Get it, come on Kelly, get your shit. Wait, what were you asking?

[00:17:36] TREY GERRALD: where do you think Peggy is from?

[00:17:38] CHELSEY DONN: Oh my god. I don't know. I, like, I want to say maybe, like, someplace religious. I was, first I was thinking Staten Island. That's just because of my, like, what's happening in my brain. But I think, like, South, like, Southern religious, Tennessee,

[00:17:56] TREY GERRALD: know, my mom's name is Peggy.

[00:17:59] CHELSEY DONN: Your mom didn't write this though.

[00:18:01] TREY GERRALD: No, she doesn't say cusses like

[00:18:04] CHELSEY DONN: Hayden, a Leo and a Luca.

[00:18:06] TREY GERRALD: We don't know, not a, not a

[00:18:07] CHELSEY DONN: Leo and Luca are kids

[00:18:10] TREY GERRALD: I think they're twins.

[00:18:11] CHELSEY DONN: and they're twins? They could be twins. I just feel like when you're going to give me a list and then you give me an ampersand like that, I feel like those are children

[00:18:19] TREY GERRALD: For sure.

[00:18:20] CHELSEY DONN: Angelica or

[00:18:21] TREY GERRALD: Leo and Luca, right? I think they're definitely twins.

[00:18:24] CHELSEY DONN: Right? Angelica, Hayden, Leo, and Luca,

[00:18:27] TREY GERRALD: I mean, this is the strangest thing I've come across, scouring the internet for reviews for the show, so I had to bring it in, but yes, it's not really a review

[00:18:35] CHELSEY DONN: it's not a review of the product in any way, but it's fascinating.

[00:18:40] TREY GERRALD: Also, I've never used,

[00:18:42] CHELSEY DONN: of humanity.

[00:18:43] TREY GERRALD: a fascinating study of humanity, I have never used Timu, but don't you usually write the gift card as you're finalizing the purchase? Like,

[00:18:51] CHELSEY DONN: The only thing that I could think of logically, like, if we are to believe grandma just thought that they were writing this in a letter and it's a little cockadoo, but grandma's a little cockadoo. I don't know if that's a real word, but maybe they paid for it. And then after they paid for it, because especially if there's this many reviews for the product, a box automatically appeared on the screen that was like, feedback message.

Or something like that. And grandma somehow interpreted feedback message to mean, I mean, clearly they don't, they redefine words all the time in their own writing. So maybe they just thought that that meant like, oh, I'm going to give feedback to my granddaughter. About why she's getting this gift, you know, and also the behavior of other people in this family.

I don't know.

[00:19:40] TREY GERRALD: It's also interesting that fuck is not abbreviated or substituted,

[00:19:45] CHELSEY DONN: Oh, yeah. Let me look at it. Like, is it just spelled out right?

[00:19:48] TREY GERRALD: yeah, in caps,

[00:19:50] CHELSEY DONN: Mother. Oh, yeah, all caps, which also begs the belief that

[00:19:54] TREY GERRALD: they were screaming

[00:19:55] CHELSEY DONN: well, Or that they weren't, that they wrote this because they included, like you said, like all these things and the caps and the what, and also just weird because it's like, if you're like, oh, grandma got locked on the caps lock again, right?

But it's mother fuff inf, fucking fuff, mother fucking if, shit is cap, is all caps. Then you have the comma, comma, out of my not capitalized comma, comma. Then capitalize motherfucking how, which is how's missing the S,

[00:20:31] TREY GERRALD: And they never say the G in fucking. The first one's an F and then they just don't have it at all.

[00:20:36] CHELSEY DONN: right, exactly, which is fine, you can say fucking, that's not a big deal, but like, it just, it was really like, whiplash for me, this whole motherfucking moment,

[00:20:45] TREY GERRALD: Yeah. I mean, I don't know how to go through the roster. Is it truthful, shady? It's definitely shady. I mean, it has nothing to do with the product. Common, fluke, typical? I think grandma's won everyone in the same room. That's probably common. I

[00:20:57] CHELSEY DONN: and also like, yeah, I mean, it's just funny also that this is a five star review, so technically it's not hurting overall,

[00:21:06] TREY GERRALD: know!

[00:21:06] CHELSEY DONN: Like, honestly, it would have been worse if grandma, like, accidentally wrote a one star review when it was this, then I think we would be, like, even more angry, like, wow, like, way to waste the space and also, like, drag down the overall review when clearly you don't know what a review is.

[00:21:20] TREY GERRALD: But my favorite part of the review is, My birth dat is this Thursdayt.

[00:21:27] CHELSEY DONN: My

[00:21:28] TREY GERRALD: And then they say,

[00:21:29] CHELSEY DONN: is this Thursday. Oh my God. Yes. That was so funny. And then they start, right. The best birthday I could have to have.

[00:21:37] TREY GERRALD: guess, it makes perfect

[00:21:39] CHELSEY DONN: Like it's not a hope to have. Oh my God. There were so many moments when you were reading this that I was just like, what, what was the

[00:21:46] TREY GERRALD: half peg.

[00:21:47] CHELSEY DONN: of the sentence? Like come to next son next to like, what does that mean?

[00:21:53] TREY GERRALD: Maybe we need to post this, a

[00:21:55] CHELSEY DONN: I think we might need to you guys, because this is so.

[00:21:59] TREY GERRALD: have to see it.

[00:22:00] CHELSEY DONN: yeah, you have to, this is a visual review. There's just so many things happening within it. Peggy, you fascinate me,

[00:22:08] TREY GERRALD: fascinated, Peg.

[00:22:09] CHELSEY DONN: and I hope that your granddaughter got her fucking shit out of your fucking house.

[00:22:14] TREY GERRALD: Fuckin how? Should we crown it?

[00:22:16] CHELSEY DONN: Should we crown this? I think it's time.

Let's do it.

[00:22:19] TREY GERRALD: I think so. All right, so Chelsey and I each have our own set of zero to five crown cards. In an effort to be fair and not influence one another, we will simultaneously reveal our rating. I think I know.

[00:22:39] CHELSEY DONN: Okay, I don't know if you do now, okay, interesting, I go for one and a half crowns, Trey went for a half crown, just pure entertainment, like, I really had a good laugh listening to you read that review, and like, I had to throw a bone just because, again, so locked into the typical review that this was like, Such a delight to hear you listen to, and they mentioned the Duvois, whatever it was, once, at least they mentioned the product, I don't

[00:23:08] TREY GERRALD: That's true,

[00:23:15] CHELSEY DONN: uh, for personal family matters, uh, that being said, hilarious review, it's five stars, we're not hurting anybody, so, one and a half crowns for me, you went with a half crown, why?

[00:23:28] TREY GERRALD: Just cause it's so funny. I mean, it's absurd. We can't really apply any, any of our crowning

[00:23:34] CHELSEY DONN: right, we couldn't, we couldn't really go through the bullet points on this one.

[00:23:37] TREY GERRALD: but boy was it fun,

[00:23:38] CHELSEY DONN: That was fun. Wow, Trey, that was amazing. I'm, I'm verklempt in a good way.

[00:23:44] TREY GERRALD: I'm verklempt, I don't think I'm gonna purchase that polyester bedding set though,

[00:23:48] CHELSEY DONN: I don't think so, no.

[00:23:49] TREY GERRALD: no, but I do want to know, Chelsey, we have reached the most regal portion of our show, who are you inducting today, for? Mm

[00:24:03] CHELSEY DONN: was talking about all these Timu ads that I receive all the time on social media. And another ad that I receive all the time is for these shoes, I don't know if you guys have heard of them, called Kizik's, K I Z I

[00:24:20] TREY GERRALD: Oh, yeah, I have, actually.

[00:24:22] CHELSEY DONN: I've just seen like review after review after review of this product and every time I saw the video I was like, this product looks amazing.

And I finally was like, you know what? I think I need this. And I bit the bullet, and I bought the shoes, and you guys, I am obsessed. With these shoes, I'm probably going to buy another pair. I can't imagine my life without it. So what's so cool. I just want to tell you guys a little bit about this company, just because they're really, I don't know, saving lives here, saving my back, the easiest shoes you'll ever put on, no tying, no heel necessary and no hands necessary.

And what's crazy about that is like. There are shoes, like I ended up buying a pair of sneakers, that are tied, so it's not like they're like those dorky looking shoes that are like no tie, like no, there are shoes that are tied, but you just tie it before you even put your foot into the shoe, and then you're in, that's it.

It's revolutionary. It's like making the grounds. I want to say Nike actually just bought like a licensing deal from them. So good things are happening for Kizzik, but if you like me have been receiving a ton of these ads, I will say did not disappoint. I feel like I've already sold pairs just from like them being on my feet, just going to a client's house and like taking them off and putting them back in with such ease.

I just can't remember my life before these shoes, and I'm probably gonna buy another pair to be completely honest, so Kizzik, you are my Royal Highness, I love you, you're a queen, you're changing the world for the better, thank you, thank you, thank you,

[00:25:59] TREY GERRALD: I love that. I have seen ads for them and I actually like went to the like shop page and looked at them because I am someone that never likes to tie my shoes, they're always tied and I just slip my feet in. So, I

[00:26:08] CHELSEY DONN: right, Trey, you need these, like, you actually do, like, you don't even know, it's one of those things that you don't even know you need it until you get it, and then you're like, what was I doing with my life before this?

[00:26:19] TREY GERRALD: well, thankfully we have

[00:26:20] CHELSEY DONN: Like you want to be out, exactly, you want to be out the door and at the gym in like 0.

2 seconds without having that extra moment of being like, I gotta put my shoes on. No, like that is done. It's out.

[00:26:31] TREY GERRALD: Oh my god. Alright, well, I think you've sold me.

[00:26:34] CHELSEY DONN: Obsessed. Okay, yay.

[00:26:36] TREY GERRALD: Well, we did it, Queen. That is another round on the R Q, A R Q, Ferris Wheel of Gitchell. Shit out my motherfuckin howl. If

[00:26:47] CHELSEY DONN: I'm a motherfucking hoe. Thank you for joining us today. If you like this crazy Meshuggah num review, please tell a friend.

[00:26:57] TREY GERRALD: not like this Crazy Michigan Review, please tell it to me. That was a mess,

[00:27:26] TREY GERRALD: We both loved Brooklyn, the musical, but we also have deep love for Tiffany Pollard, who is infamously New York from Flavor of

[00:27:33] CHELSEY DONN: Yes,

[00:27:34] TREY GERRALD: and I just rewatched all of season one of Flavor of Love, and my god is she a star.

[00:27:42] CHELSEY DONN: Total Star Queen.

[00:27:45] TREY GERRALD: I'm really racking my brain. I wonder why that was set.

[00:27:47] CHELSEY DONN: I wonder why that was

[00:27:49] TREY GERRALD: I really just, I really am feeling pulled to pay 4.

99 a month to get

[00:27:54] CHELSEY DONN: Just to find out why. Why, what does it all mean?

[00:27:57] TREY GERRALD: And it's just so easy through Apple Podcasts. It's a one push button and then I can just double click to confirm. It's so fast and easy that as I'm doing it, I can still remember

[00:28:07] CHELSEY DONN: to ignore the haters, because you're a queen,

[00:28:10] TREY GERRALD: it. Gender non specific queen.

[00:28:12] CHELSEY DONN: obviously,

[00:28:17] CHELSEY DONN: do, do, do.

[00:28:42] TREY GERRALD: I'm glad you enjoyed that because I literally almost did not do that review like four times.

[00:28:48] CHELSEY DONN: Oh my god, I hope our listeners found it as funny as I did, because I just, I just went through a whole journey with that review, so thanks for bringing it in, that was fun.

[00:28:55] TREY GERRALD: What was your pet name for your grandparents?

[00:28:58] CHELSEY DONN: Mom, uh, Mama and Pop Pop and

[00:29:00] TREY GERRALD: you kidding?

[00:29:01] CHELSEY DONN: No, I'm not. Isn't that crazy? But mine was Mama and Pop Pop,

[00:29:07] TREY GERRALD: oh, we were Meemaw and Dada and then,

[00:29:11] CHELSEY DONN: Oh, Meemaw.

[00:29:12] TREY GERRALD: and then Dada and Bubbles because her name was Elizabeth and the first grandchild couldn't say Elizabeth came out Bubbles so we just had to

[00:29:19] CHELSEY DONN: I don't know. I don't really understand that when the grandparents are just like, I'm called this ridiculous thing because That's the way it came out. No.

[00:29:26] TREY GERRALD: Well, you know what's funny is, my mom used to say, cause my mom is crazy, Peggy, Before

[00:29:31] CHELSEY DONN: Shout out to Peggy.

[00:29:33] TREY GERRALD: shout out Peggy, deuces, She would always say that when we had grandkids, which neither of us ever planned to have grandkids, She would be referred to as Grandmama Gerald.

[00:29:43] CHELSEY DONN: My mom says the same thing. That's so weird. So my mom is Grandy. Her real name is Randi, but she's, she's Grandi, but she used to have this thing before my sister had kids that she said she was at a place and she overheard someone saying Grandmama, and she wanted to be called that in public.

[00:30:03] TREY GERRALD: Yeah, that's weird. But don't they call her Grandy?

[00:30:06] CHELSEY DONN: They do call her Grandi, but like, there was a time when she was like, Oh my God, I want to be called Grandmama because it just seemed so like, I don't know, grand. Grandmama has entered the room.

[00:30:20] TREY GERRALD: Alright, Queens, we love you, we'll see you on Friday.

[00:30:23] CHELSEY DONN: Bye.
