Episode 63: Shut It Down! (with Donia Duchess)

June 19, 2018

TLC has a new show called "I Want THAT Wedding," and Brooke and Pam were able to sit down with the bride from the first episode, Donia Dutchess!

Donia, who's also a host and producer, chats with the gals about her engagement, upcoming wedding plans and what it was like to go through some of her bridal experience on television! Besides weddings, they also end up talking about fake British accents, unprompted psychic readings, and having the hots for soccer players.

They also dive into listeners' confessionals! Topics include: a bride who's never been to a wedding and is now nervous about planning her own, a bridesmaid who's about to go rogue, and a debate about if it's okay to be petty when giving a wedding gift.

If you like crystal balls or passive agressive gifting, this episode is for you!
