S1E2: My Own Worst Enemy | Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen & Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner
Welcome back! This week, Alicia explores the weird life (and marital) history of actor Charlie Sheen, and gives particular props to his ex-wife Denise Richards, who we’re pretty sure is a saint. Then, Stacie explains how Anthony Weiner’s penis broke American politics, world history, and of course, his marriage to the fabulous Huma Abedin.
Stuff we reference:
Double’s The Captain of Her Heart (US Version) featured a very young, very punky Denise Richards in her pre-Sheen days.
Here’s the first part of the 2011 television interview that freaked everyone out and spawned a billion memes.
When we roll over to the Anthony Weiner story, Stacie mentions this lovely Jon Stewart interview from better days in his career. And here is Nate Silver, of FiveThirtyEight fame, arguing that the Comey letter – and therefore Anthony Weiner’s penis – probably gave Trump the White House in 2016. As for how it all ended, well, this New York Post cover sums it up.
