The Real Pod: Basking in a summer of celebrity scandals

The Real Pod assembles to dissect the last few weeks in New Zealand pop culture and real life, with special thanks to Nando’s.

We’re back for 2019! Well, Jane and Alex are. Join us for a sprawling chat about this summer in celebrity news, sightings and scandals. Sam and Tayler’s MAFS journey has come to an end, press release and all. Mike Puru had a chicken burger nightmare, the Fiji Water girl is a sham and we’ve seen so many celebs over the holidays that we hardly know what to do with ourselves.

Beyond that, we look at some personal failures. Jane flubbed her wedding invites, Alex has been crying while Kondo-ing and Tina’s phone died when she met Cardi B at Piha. There’s also a small amount of reality TV news, including an extremely exciting Celebrity Treasure Island rumour and the mad return of The Bachelor US.
