Episode 42: Rent-a-neck!

Click MeIt’s the last podcast before the Oscars! Ever wonder how actresses choose one obscene diamond necklace over another obscene diamond necklace before hitting a red carpet? Here’s a hint: Which jeweler is willing to pay the actress the most?

It’s the dirty, increasingly open secret of Oscar season: The red carpet fashion pay-for-placement game. Top designers shell out six to seven figure sums just so that an A-list actress will wear their earrings or bracelets, or even their gowns. True. In this special Oscar-packed episode, I dish all the details—including which top actress reportedly charges $1 million to wear a single bracelet.

Also this week!
  • Baby Vegas is back!
  • As promised, we bring in not Answer Dad, but Answer MOM, to rate the hotness of the men of Downton Abbey
  • I explain how any fatty—meaning any Hollywood actress over a size 2—ever manages to find a dress for the Oscars
  • I throw down in a particularly gruesome Cage Match. And there’s a twist: Baby Vegas’s little sister, Baby Baby Vegas, must choose a winner. 
Got a question about how Hollywood really works? Ask me in the feedback module to the right.

  2. I am catching up belatedly with these episodes, but Answer Bitch and Answer Mom, how could you not mention Thomas? He's the hottest. Also evil and gay.
