‘Gossip With Celebitchy’ Podcast #11: Elizabeth Holmes’ voice, Kate’s controversial fashion


elizabethholmesfooter
We tried something new this week! We talked about three stories we deliberately didn’t cover! We start off with Operation Varsity Blues and how Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are covering US Magazine. Felicity and her husband of 22 years, William H. Macy, are having marital problems due to the scandal. As for whether Olivia Jade is sympathetic, our verdict is that she is not but that she probably wasn’t able to push back against her parents. We talk about Elizabeth Holmes the Theranos scammer’s deep voice and how it’s probably an affectation and code switching. (This was one of the stories we didn’t mention this week, we covered other aspects of that and decided to skip it. I did do some cosplay of her though.) We call it a bit sexist to focus on her voice and appearance when so many men do the same thing. Chandra is also watching Billions on Showtime and she talked about how great it is. (There aren’t any spoilers!) You can listen below! This episode is not safe around kids, just FYI.

We cover the teaser trailer for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and say it looks like a campy fun film set in 70s Hollywood, but also like it’s using the Manson family murders and Bruce Lee to add interest. We talk about the royals and the controversy over the fashion brands which Kate and Meghan are wearing, particularly Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana. Kaiser/Chandra didn’t cover that story because she thinks that the royal stylists should get the brunt of the criticism, not the duchesses. Finally we cover Lena Dunham’s cringey essay for Vogue, which we definitely didn’t cover. It’s a long self-indulgent mess in which she requests some kind of unspecified light S&M from a sketchy guy. I asked Kaiser/Chandra to talk about that because I knew it would be funny and also because I wanted to share the pain of having to read it.

Our user question is about the type of people we think Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will end up dating (we get a bit racy in that part). We have three comments of the week this week! I noticed people giving support to a recent widow in the Gwyneth Paltrow post and my funny comment is about the originator of the shag haircut. Chandra’s favorite comment was about Ben Affleck being the odd man out in Triple Frontier.

I’m not embedding it but Lena posted the perfect photo for her essay. She knows her brand I’ll give her that.

    I listened to “The Dropout” podcast this weekend and OMFG her voice is annoying! Now I understand what people mean. I remember her childhood friend was even surprised by her voice.

    • Esmom says:

      I listened to it, too, and ordered Bad Blood, even though I had been trying to wait until my book group discusses it in August. She is a delusional piece of work and a truly sh%^^y person.

      I then spent too much time on IG watching videos of people imitating her. Hilarious.

      • ifeoma says:

        The book is meant to be way better than the documentaries and podcasts. I’ve ordered it too and am really looking forward to reading it.

  2. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Billions is definitely awesome. However, I had to try a second time regarding pilot viewership as directly following the first scene, I quicky exited lol. But once I really started, I couldn’t stop.

  3. Doodle says:

    I’m listening to this and I heard A recording of Holmes’ voice from her freshman year on I think it was The Dropout’s 20/20 companion tv special. It was totally different – high pitched, sounded nothing like her low voice at all. One of her college profs also said her voice was nothing like it was during class either. It was definitely a put on.

    • Celebitchy says:

      Oh ok! I only had listened to the podcast and seen the HBO special and so I mention that there wasn’t much evidence about her voice. It’s also possible that they didn’t focus on that as much.

    I’ve fallen down the rabbiit hole and watched waaay too many you tube clips on Elizabeth Holmes
    Her colleagues noted that when she was tipsy or excited she’d sometimes lapse into her real voice.
    OT that Lena Dunham essay is insane! Doesn’t she have anyone in her life willing to tell her straight up to punch the brakes on her moronic naval gazing?

  5. Victoria says:

    I think you guys need to put a disclaimer prior to listening because I’m eating my breakfast and want to vomit during the Lena Dunham bit

  6. Danielle says:

    I’ve read Celebitchy for so long but this is the first podcast I’ve listened to. It made me fall in love with you guys all over again.

    Was looking up the Big Sean dick pic secret “Celebitchy business” or was it “Celeb-Itchy business”?
