[00:03:16] Trey Gerrald: We've been getting some questions always about what is, what is the point of Patriot? All of that. What is so hopefully that
[00:03:23] Chelsey Donn: Hopefully that answers it. Yeah. I mean, I, do you guys ever have that feeling when you just find a new TV show or I, I just started watching this reality show, which is kind of embarrassing. It's called my claim to fame. I've been watching it on Hulu. It's hosted by Kevin Jonas and then the other one, the one that's not. I think it's Kevin and, and then the Frankie, the one that's not in the group. Are you there? Are you alive?
[00:03:53] Trey Gerrald: I, I've never heard of, never heard of these Jonas people.
[00:03:57] Chelsey Donn: What? The Jonas brothers?
[00:03:59] Trey Gerrald: Nick Jonas. Right? Joe Jonas.
[00:04:02] Chelsey Donn: and Kevin, isn't it. Kevin
[00:04:04] Trey Gerrald: Kevin,
[00:04:05] Chelsey Donn: let's look up these Jonah
[00:04:06] Trey Gerrald: the Jonas brothers,
[00:04:08] Chelsey Donn: It's Kevin, isn't it.
[00:04:11] Trey Gerrald: Yeah, you're right. I've literally never heard Kevin Jonas , but I recognize his face.
[00:04:17] Chelsey Donn: anyway, here's the deal. So I, I start watching the show. It's called your claim to fame, and it's all these people that are related to celebrities. They give you like little hints here and there about who they are. And then at the end of the week, you have to say, like, I think that Trey is related to. I Donn know carrot top, cuz you look so much like him and, and and then if you're right, then that person has to go home and if you're wrong, then you have to go home.
[00:04:47] Chelsey Donn: Now I think what I've explained is that the show is very dumb and I only watched it because I was sick. So I've been watching it because now I'm hooked and that's what happens when you get sucked into these reality shows, you're like, I'll give it a chance. And then the next thing you know, you're like fangirling over these like second cousins of Diana Ross.
[00:05:05] Chelsey Donn: And so, so
[00:05:07] Trey Gerrald: that was spoiler.
[00:05:08] Chelsey Donn: spoiler. That was just, I made that up because I didn't wanna spoil, but the point is, yeah, like, so I'm now I'm into it, you know? And so I go to Hulu. And I happened to catch it, like on the day that it came out and then I had to wait a whole week and I felt like every day I was like refreshing that Hulu page to see like, is there a new episode?
[00:05:27] Chelsey Donn: Is there a new episode? So I don't wanna be so pretentious as to think that people have that experience with our show. However, I do love that feeling of being like, I have to wait another week for a show. Oh, there's this like extra thing that I can see that can sort of get me through to the next week.
[00:05:46] Chelsey Donn: And if you're a true fan of the show, that's what I think Patreon is. It's like, I like listening to these reviews while I go on my walk and I wanna go on two walks this week. Well, like hop on Patreon, and then there you go. We're, we're gonna join you for two walks instead of one, you know, it's exciting.
[00:06:04] Trey Gerrald: That's the connection piece. I was like, why is she talking about your claim to fame and Kevin Jonas?
[00:06:09] Chelsey Donn: the long, it was the long way around. But I think that, like, I'm just saying, like, I understand that feeling, you know?
[00:06:17] Trey Gerrald: of course. Well, we all do now. Cause we're so used to binging that we like the thought of having to wait, you know, six days for your favorite
[00:06:24] Trey Gerrald: stuff is torture. Wait, okay, wait. So Chelsey and I are recording right now and it, this is not a normal recording day. It was spur the moment we're both doing it.
[00:06:33] Trey Gerrald: And the fact that Chelsey is here is actually no joking, pretty remarkable.
[00:06:39] Chelsey Donn: Yeah.
[00:06:39] Trey Gerrald: Okay. This is like very intense and serious. So I want you to walk us through what happened.
[00:06:46] Chelsey Donn: Okay. So I've been pretty fortunate. I did get the flu at the beginning of the year, but I've not gotten hit with COVID this entire time. Thank you. But unfortunately the day before I was supposed to fly home for a trip back east and to do a photo shoot with Trey for all of you guys that I was really excited about, I got COVID and I did get quite sick throughout that process.
[00:07:11] Chelsey Donn: Even though I have two boosters, but you know, I have some immunocompromised stuff and I took plod, which is the, the medication you could take. And I was feeling much better. And then I was put on steroid. And long story short, my like heart had a real reaction to the steroids. It was beating very fast. It was probably one of the scariest things I've ever experienced in my life.
[00:07:35] Chelsey Donn: I was sitting completely calm, watching a Netflix special on like Netflix and chilling, ready to leave, to fly out the next day. And I had this horrible episode that left me in the hospital for like almost 14 hours. And now I have to wear this heart monitor attached to my like body. It's like two to three weeks and it's just a saga and it's scary.
[00:08:00] Chelsey Donn: And it just reminds us that life is so precious. And I'm so lucky. That's really what, what it all comes down to is that I was very scared and it ended up just being a reaction likely to the medication. And I didn't have any blood clots and I'm very, very fortunate. And, and the entire time that I was there.
[00:08:17] Chelsey Donn: You're so lucky. You're so lucky. You're so lucky, but because this is a show about complaining. I just
