This week, we’ve got two of the most beloved performers to have graced us in decades. Alicia’s got the intense story of Whitney Houston, an incredible talent whose path was in many ways set by the agendas of those around her. Her 14-year-long marriage to Bobby Brown was ultimately catastrophic, and her untimely death was tragic beyond words.
In the second half, Stacie leads the first meeting of the Sandra Bullock Fan Club of Trashy Divorces. Sandra’s five-year-long marriage to West Coast Chopper Jesse James blew up spectacularly when his numerous infidelities hit the tabloid press just days after Sandra won her first Oscar.
