From Hollywood Boulevard, it’s The WOW Report for Radio Andy on SiriusXM! That’s right WOWers, World of Wonder Co-Founder Fenton Bailey, Executive VP of Development Tom Campbell, and WOW Report Editor James St. James have collaborated with reality TV guru and friend of WOW, Andy Cohen, on a weekly Top Ten Countdown of the things from the past week that make us go…WOW!
It’s a pop-culture obsessed hour complete with colorful diatribes, opposing opinions, and a dissection-like discussion that will make your drive home from work more fabulous!
We air TODAY at 4PM EST on SiriusXM, and again at 4PM PST (7PM EST). You can also catch it on the SiriusXM app!
Let’s get started…
10) CW’s Dynasty Reboot Makes Us Slap Happy
The trailer for the rebooted Dynasty has it ALL! Some things my have changed – the show is now set in Atlanta and Sammy Jo is a male to name a couple – but one thing remains the same…THE DRAMA! We’ll be tuning in this fall when it premieres on the CW on Thursdays after Riverdale.
9) American Gods on Starz Goes Full Frontal
James St. James has been watching American Gods on Starz, and he’s obsessed. Can you blame him? There are hot guys, an awesome cast (Kristen Chenoweth, Gillian Anderson, Crispin Glover), and there’s even penis! Watch American Gods Sunday nights at 9PM on Starz or on the Starz App.
8) Are K-Pop Sensations BTS Bigger Than the Beatles?
Many of us here in the USA had never heard of BTS before Sunday night’s Billboard Awards, but they won the social media vote BIG TIME with 300 MILLION votes! So even though we haven’t heard of them here in America, that doesn’t mean the rest of the world isn’t already K-Poppin’ to their hits!
7) Can We Forgive Billy Bush?
We haven’t heard much from Billy Bush since the fallout from Trump’s “P*ssy Grabbing” tape got him fired from his gig at The Today Show, but he’s finally breaking his silence. Read what he had to say to the Hollywood Reporter, and then listen in to the show to see what we think about it.
6) We All Scream for Alien: Covenant
We discuss the latest film in the Alien franchise, its gorgeous design elements, and weirdly homoerotic robots (played by Michael Fassbender). Alien: Covenant is in theaters now.
5) Get Me Roger Stone is the Sinister Forrest Gump
We discuss the Netflix documentary Get Me Roger Stone about the evil man who has wanted to see Donald Trump as President of the United States since the 1980s.
4) Million Dollar Listing New York Adds a New Hunk!
3) Is Lou Reed’s “Walk on the Wild Side” Transphobic?
That’s what the University of Guelph in Canada thinks. They even apologized to their students for playing the song because it was “hurtful to our friends in the trans community.” We discuss how we thought Lou Reed meant it as a celebration of his friends, and how WOWlebrity Holly Woodlawn, who’s mentioned in the lyrics, absolutely loved the song.
2) Netflix’s Casting Jon Benet Provides a Different POV
The documentary Casting Jon Benet is about the famous case of the young slain beauty queen Jon Benet Ramsey, but instead of trying to solve the case, the film makers filmed actors auditioning for the roles of the Ramsey family and key players from the trial. Watch it on Netflix.
1) Monica Lewinsky and the Culture of Humiliation
Longtime wowlebrity and anti-cyberbullying advocate Monica Lewinsky wrote movingly of her experiences with FOX news in the wake of former former Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes death, remembering him as the man who built a media empire on the back of her affair with former President Bill Clinton. She also noted, quite correctly, that our whole “culture of humiliation” – of cyberbullying and chyrons, trolls and tweets – was forged on FOX news in 1998, during her very public takedown. It’s your must-read of the week.
Listen in at 4:00PM EST and again at 4:00 PST (7 PM EST) on SiriusXM! Or listen whenever you want on the SiriusXM App!
