In other words, he'll talk about... truly anything.

Big Brother Breakfast Club: Week 3

8/2/2021
It's a Truly Anything takeover with Kendrick in the driver seat! Donny and Amanda are on vacation this week, but Kendrick still has a healthy appetite for breakfast and for reality TV gossip, so he invites his friends Tom Hamlett (@thetomhamlett) and Nyemade Boiwu (@thatafricanbutterfly) to dish on this week of Big Brother!

They discuss Kyland's HOH reign, the art-themed Wildcard Competition, the emotional nomination ceremony, a slippery (LOL!) veto competition, and an eviction ceremony that would have Eminem shaking his head. Also, we discuss a *celebrity* (we use that term VERY loosely) appearance and a historical HOH...

Syrus Yarbrough

Donny is joined by Syrus Yarbrough of MTV's "The Challenge: All Stars" and "The Real World: Boston." He discusses what it was like to be back on The Challenge, why some people can't leave the game in the game, and why he doesn't regret anything about his elimination. He also touches on "bad edits" and how the world has changed (and stayed the same) since he was originally on the Real World. But first, this week's pop culture panel is made up of Taria S. Faison, Chelsea - the face behind...

REALITY RETROSPECTIVE - The Real World: San Francisco, Ep. 6 (w/ Myself)

5/7/2021
After cancelling his recording with this week's guest, Donny records this week's episode by himself, but talking to himself is nothing new, so he feels right at home. As always, his dislike for Puck and Rachel is on display, although a DM from a former MTV employee has him thinking deeper about one one them. Then, Pedro & Sean talking to high school seniors reminds Donny of the time he was terrified to start high school because he thought he would be drugged while sending mail. Be sure to...

REALITY RETROSPECTIVE - The Real World: San Francisco, Ep. 5 (w/ Kiki Monique of "@thetalkofshame")

4/30/2021
Bagel enthusiast and reality TV connoisseur Kiki Monique (@thetalkofshame) to discuss episode 5 of "The Real World: San Francisco," and Donny is THRILLED when they learn this is a Judd episode. However, all good must be accompanied by some bad, so the B-plot this episode proves to be a little too Puck-heavy. The two dive into the BAMMYS (what?), Pam's boyfriend of eight years resembling a certain roommate, and how we can all learn a little something from Puck this episode (although Donny...

Robert Ri'chard

4/26/2021
Call Donny "Little Caesar" from now on, because these topics are HOT and READY today, and Donny wastes no time jumping into the entertainment news from the week! Touching primarily on Caitlyn Jenner running for California Governor and Demi Lovato vs. The Big Chill, he takes a moment to praise Freeform for the premiere of "Cruel Summer" (even though he can't talk about it much because he doesn't want to spoil it). Things take a particularly chaotic turn when Donny tries to discuss the...

REALITY RETROSPECTIVE - The Real World: San Francisco, Ep. 4 (w/ Semajh of "Me I am: Cancelled")

4/23/2021
Donny is back for another reality retrospective of "The Real World: San Francisco," and to discuss this unfortunately Puck-heavy episode, he is joined by Semajh (@semajwithanh) from the "Me I Am: Cancelled!" podcast, Semajh wastes no time in shocking Donny with his favorite cast members (RACHEL?! RACHEL!?), but they can safely agree on the fact that they would not be able to stomach Puck's odor and that boxcar racing is only something that the Little Rascals should be doing. But more than...

Kalen Allen

4/12/2021
It is a PACKED HOUSE in the Truly Anything playroom this week! Kalen Allen is on the pod, fresh from his guest hosting position on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show!" He discusses how guest hosting an episode came to be (you'll be shocked by his answer! Donny was!), what it was like interviewing Kelly Rowland and Angelica Ross, the imposter syndrome he felt at the beginning of his career, and what he sees for himself in the future. He also jumps back to "the beginning" and breaks down some of the...

REALITY RETROSPECTIVE - The Real World: San Francisco, Ep. 3 (w/ Zenobia Darling)

4/9/2021
Donny is joined this week by drag superstar Zenobia Darling (@zenobia_darling) to discuss episode 3 of "The Real World: San Francisco." Being no stranger to reality TV research (she did her thesis on "Vanderpump Rules"), Zenobia comes prepared with everything you ever needed to know about Puck's time after the show. Once Donny is up to date on Puck's well being (or lack thereof), they jump into Cory's unraveling, Rachel's continuous journey of being the Devil, and Mohammed's screen time -...

Christina Anthony (and "Now and Then" with Hannah Brown)

4/5/2021
After walking 1.5 miles and braving Black Friday-like conditions at Walgreens to fetch his husband some Cadbury Creme Eggs, Donny is back and home and ready to attempt to watch the John Legend "Jesus Christ Superstar" special - until something goes wrong, that is. Something is bound to go wrong. Then, he chats with Hannah A. Brown (@hannahabrown) - the best Hannah Brown you've never heard of - about the 1995 hit "Now and Then," and they their best to answer the hard questions: in what world...

4/2/2021
This week, Donny is joined by Kendrick Tucker of "Me & You, The Housewives, and Marvel Too" (@housewivesmarvelpodcast) to discuss episode 2 of "The Real World: San Francisco." It's another 21 minutes of... practically nothing, but Donny & Kendrick somehow fill a half hour breaking it down. Before getting into the episode, they have to touch on the news story that is shocking (but also not) everyone - the Jen Shah & Stuart scam. Once they get that out of their system, they move on to other...

After taking a week off for his birthday (and because he couldn't find a celebrity guest because everyone is giving birth, Donny is BACK and ready to jump in head first. Before bringing out Taria S. Faison (@weigopodcast), he catches up on all of the programming he's watched while on hiatus: Netflix's "A Week Away," which is basically just "Camp Rock" with Jesus and without the Jonas Brothers, Caitlyn Jenner's abysmal performance on "The Masked Singer," and the Tina Turner documentary on...

3/25/2021
TGIF! Donny decided it's been a long time since Fridays meant quality programming, so he chose to bring you bonus episodes every Friday. That's right - starting today, he's releasing a "Reality Retrospective" where he'll dive into an old season of reality TV past. In honor of Paramount+ releasing (most) of the seasons of "The Real World," he's starting with season 3 of the story of seven strangers picked to live in a house... you know the rest. To break down the season premiere of "The...

"The Masked Singer" has returned, and Donny is ON STRIKE after this week's unmasking. If you're looking for a place to get your Masked Singer recaps, go somewhere else because it WON'T be happening here. After sharing his PTSD about the unmasking, Donny is joined by friend of the pod and pop culture connoisseur, Brianna Eckhardt (@brieckhardt) to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of "Save the Last Dance." They share their history with the movie which, for Donny, includes being banished to the...

3/8/2021
Between excitement and fear, Donny will never sleep again after this episode! He starts with recapping the news that took over Tik Tok: Samantha Hartsoe and her mirror. If you haven't seen her story, it's a wild one that includes a secret apartment and has garnered 18 million views on Tik Tok. Then, he and Mandy Slutsker (@mandyslutsker) of "Is This Real Life?" discuss the perfection that is "The First Wives Club." Is there a movie more iconic than this? Donny and Mandy say no. With Bette,...

Good morning, Baltimore! Welcome to the 60's... and a wild journey... as Donny crams THREE guests into one episode! First, Donny's sister Callie (@callie_rushelle) calls in to the "Truly Anything" studio from inside of a cave to discuss the two hour finale of "The Masked Dancer," but they end up talking about so much more - their weekly dance class, their favorite season of "Dancing with the Stars," not having a need to see "Dear Evan Hansen" more than once, the best Leighton Meester songs,...
