Julie Goldman and Brandy Howard from Bravo’s "The People’s Couch" step Behind The Rope. Julie and Brandy actually have a podcast of their own, Dumb Gay Politics. It brings their own brand of humor to the political world for political beginners who don’t know too much. They talk about political figures as if they were Real Housewives. Sounds perfect to us. After bonding over being fellow Podcast Hosts, we get into how Julie and Brandy met, on a Rosie O’Donnell Gay Cruise. Well thats not too stereotypical, is it? Cheyenne Jackson makes a guest appearance. Unfortunately, the next Rosie cruise they took together didn’t end well. Brandy ended up getting kicked off the ship for reasons which we cannot put into writing (listen in!). Julie, Brandy and David bond over their love of Big Brother and all things Julie Chen. We also discuss their comedic background, which involves Julie’s guest appearance on Happy Endings! Of course, the conversation quickly turns to all things Housewives. Julie and Brandy met The Real Housewives of Miami’s Lea Black as a result of being on The People’s Couch. This meeting resulted in a friendship, a friendship which includes going to her parties when she is in town at her LA House. One of those parties was attended by Flipping Out’s Jeff Lewis, Gage Edward, and Jenni Pulos. Another Lea Black party they attended was also attended by RHOC’s Kelly Dodd. Yes they heard a lot of “off the record” talk from the Flipping Out stars, as well as from Lea Black and Kelly Dodd. Oh really, do tell? They do. Julie and Brandi discuss how they got cast on “The People’s Couch”, what the interview process was like, and how they reacted once they realized the network for the People’s Couch was actually Bravo. Hint, F’ing excited. Finally, we discuss their People’s Couch cast mate, Miss Destiny Rose from Shahs of Sunset and their everyday obsession with Reza and MJ.
