S8E11: Ring of Fire | Vivian Liberto, Johnny Cash, and June Carter & Paula Yates, Bob Geldof, and Michael Hutchence

If two is company, this week we’re taking a look at some very trashy crowds. It’s love triangle week! First up, Alicia introduces us to the first wife of country legend Johnny Cash. He courted Vivian Liberto in thousands of pages of letters while deployed to West Germany, but after a dozen years together, it was June Carter who won his heart for good. Then, Stacie recalls the shockingly public and profoundly tragic love triangle of TV presenter Paula Yates, who left musician and organizer Bob Geldof for doomed rock star Michael Hutchence, and ultimately lost her own life along the way.
