Episode 85 and Wendi and Dfernando do some catching up. Wendi shares she had COVID (get your boosters, kids!), revisiting the original Australian comedy series KATH & KIM, and thinking about some new segments to add to the podcast:

First one is: GORGEOUS LIVING - ways that you can live gorgeously.
Second one is: QUEEN ENERGY - when you stand in your power, ladies.

And Wendi and Dfernando discuss her new haircut she did herself, thanks to Jayne Matthews (@jayne_edosalon). Wendi used the Bangs & Layers Bundle to create her new haircut/hairstyle. Visit Jayne Matthews' website for full details and DIY Classes, etc.

Also, there's some updates on past guests: Hayley Orrantia's appearance on FOX TV's THE MASK SINGER and the star-studded production of the Cyndi Lauper Broadway musical KINKY BOOTS at the Hollywood Bowl; and a limited engagement of A STAR IS BORED author Byron Lane's acclaimed play TILDA SWINTON ANSWERS AN AD ON CRAIG'S LIST, starring Tom Lenk as Tilda Swinton.

On THE RIPE REPORT, Dfernando shares 2 of his favorite NYC-based RIPES: CRIOLLAS Baked Empanadas, authentic Argentinean empanadas available at the Turnstyle Underground Market (located underground at the 59th Street/Columbus Circle subway station!), and the old elevated rail line park THE HIGH LINE. Wendi shares a new discovery: the Showtime TV series I LOVE THAT FOR YOU, created and starring former SNL cast member Vanessa Bayer, Molly Shannon, Jenifer Lewis and Matt Rogers, and which takes place in the world of a major home shopping network. Also, take a listen to Matt Rogers' and SNL's Bowen Yang's podcast LAS CULTURISTAS.
