S14E3: I’m The Only One | Melissa Etheridge, Julie Cypher, and Lou Diamond Phillips & Diana Mitford, Lady Mosley

This week, Stacie has a ‘good divorce,’ one where everyone seems to have accepted the situation and stayed friendly and supportive of each other. Unfortunately for actor Lou Diamond Phillips, who by all accounts was very gracious through it all, his first divorce continues to be described in the press as “when his wife, Julie Cypher, left him for Melissa Etheridge.” Then, Alicia dips into one of the 20th century’s most fascinating sets of siblings, the Mitford Sisters. Diana Mitford married well, but restlessness led her to an affair with British Fascist leader Oswald Mosley, as well as a long-running flirtation with fascism itself.
