Won't you join us and be our neighbor?

Hi and hey there, Neighbors! Welcome to another episode where Margo gives it up about her top-secret hair straightening technique in Queens; LBJ and Hannah Gatsby; and Erin reads the 10 Stages of Genocide. That seems on par, right? But to save the day, it's a quick breakdown of Real Housewives of NYC & James Corden and Sir Paul McCartney's Carpool Karaoke.

Hello there, Neighbors! Welcome to our first lil mini-episode. Recent travels plans have limited our time but we didn't want to limit our time with you, so here's a little mini-dose of your favorite Neighbors to tide you over. In this episode, our non-Julliard-trained neighbors do dramatic readings of some fave celeb offerings from Suzanne Somers poetry, and a recent bio of H'wood legend, Ava Gardner. Until next time, have a good week, everybody!

Hey there, Neighbors! Get ready for a rec-heavy episodes, with recs for TV, podcasts, old & new, books, reality TV, social media, comedy, you name it. Margo recommends a podcast entitled "Behind the Bastards," -guess what that's about? And Erin goes old-school, with two vintage This American Life episodes, as well as a new book-related show. Real Housewives of NYC still delivers like Domino's (Fave moment this week, when Luann said, "Lay low, DICK!" talking about her tom-cattin' Ex-, Tom.) Both Neighbors love Michelle Wolff's new Netflix show, The Break, and Marg has a couple of great people to follow on Instagram. And of course, they have to weigh in on the whole Roseanne controversy, even tho they called it many months ago. So many things to do--thank goodness it's (almost) summer!

It's freezing here in Brooklyn, folks! Cozy up with your favorite neighbors as we break down the week's events. First and foremost, "stable genius?" We can't. Real Housewives of Bev Hills is doing it for us this season. Even Dorit doesn't bother us too much. Rinna continues to be thirsty, but so far this season, we're IN! Margo has a great new podcast rec, and Erin loved "The Queen at 90" on Netflix, and Mark Rylance's latest Broadway play. Margo tries to talk us into watching "Black Fist" on Netflix only to realize she means "Black Mirror." We're probably gonna pass on that one, altho "Black Fist" I would totes see. Stay warm, neighbors!
