S3E8: I’m Too Sexy | Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton & Loni Anderson and Burt Reynolds

Who’s too sexy for this podcast? Not our subjects this week, widely recognized as two of the Sexiest Men Alive, and their equally jaw-dropping ex-wives. First up, Stacie has country superstars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, and seriously, if you don’t Miranda’s back story, buckle up. It’s amazing.

Then, Alicia brings us the much bleaker story of the six-year-long marriage of 70s/80s heartthrob Burt Reynolds and his wife Loni Anderson. It was the divorce without end, but also, the story of Loni Anderson surviving and thriving after an abusive relationship.

Housekeeping: As of publication, there are still some tickets left for our Atlanta show with Erica Kelley of Southern Fried True Crime on August 25. Visit Venkmans.com to get yours. We can’t wait to see you!
