Description

CRIMINALITY is a podcast for those of us who love reality TV, true crime, and want to hear all the juicy stories where the two genres intersect. Every other Friday, hosts, Melissa (one half of Moms and Murder podcast) and Rebekah (host of DIE-ALOGUE podcast), will share the true story of a reality personality who faced more than just champagne problems. You won’t find murder stories here, but fear not, there are crimes a plenty - fraud, arrests, mugshots, scandals, and more.CRIMINALITY: Because loving reality isn’t a crime!

There is not just one thing about Mary Cosby, there’s many things. Alleged cult leader, wife and step-granddaughter, and total enigma. From her iconic burn: “You smell like hospital,” to the demeaning way she treated her castmates: “little GIRL,” Mary consistently had us scratching our heads.  But in today’s episode Rebekah will attempt to provide some much needed context as to how she ended up accused of running a cult and the answers, including an alleged suspicious death, might surprise you.

Where Are They Now? Part 2
5194
Welcome to our second update episode! Melissa and Rebekah take turns sharing news, gossip, and hot takes from episodes 31- 47. Some are legit newsworthy while others are firmly in the “no news is good news” camp. And despite none of the episodes being about a Kardashian, Kim manages to show up in many of the updates - we are considering a new tagline for the podcast: Six Degrees of Kim Kardashian. So if you’ve been wondering what teen mom Kail is up to (maybe another pregnancy), or what Lisa Rinna’s biggest regret is (Yolanda), then don’t miss today’s episode.  Rebekah shared three clues for next episode’s story: ATLANTA, NASHVILLE, SAVANNAH ANNOUNCEMENT!

3499
Cold as ice or cool as a cucumber? Melissa is taking us from the ice rink to the boxing ring as we revisit one of the biggest news stories of the 20th century.  Tonya Harding’s name is known to most of us, but the handful of guys around her who actually perpetrated a crime have long been forgotten. That’s why Tonya had to do the redemption reality tour we’ve come to expect when celebrities have a fall from grace. Did Tonya deserve the wrath she got? Was Nancy as perfect as she was portrayed? Are they both a little crazy for attempting to fly on ice with blades on their boots? Lace up and get ready for a gold medal worthy story of olympic proportions!

Viva la Rants: Real Girlfriends in Paris Recap!
3707
Due to life circumstances and natural disasters, Rebekah and Melissa are shaking it up this week with a recap episode 6 of the new Bravo show, Real Girlfriends in Paris. Melissa is skeptical of these young women and their perfect faces, and she isn’t charmed by the croissants they wear or eat. Rebekah, on the other hand, finds the girls' and their lives fascinating and dare we say, winsome? But both agree there could be a touch more darkness in the city of Lights — but they will keep watching if only for the cheese, frítes, and to see if any of the girls ever get a zit or even just mild bloating.  It’s back to regular programming NEXT WEEK, when Melissa will share an all new episode. As a reminder, she gave us the following 3 clues:  COOKING, SKATING, BOXING Follow us on Instagram @criminalityshow + TikTok @criminalitypodcastTikTok You can say hi and tell us what you’re watching: criminalityshow@gmail.com Enjoy the show?

Jillian Michaels: The Biggest Lawsuits
3610
Rebekah played one game of pickleball and felt fit enough to tackle the tiny tornado that is Jillian Michaels. Best known for her unforgiving training style on the hit show, The Biggest Loser, Jillian championed eating well and working out as the road to health and fitness. So it was confusing when she launched a robust line of diet pills — it was also a class action lawsuit, because research showed the pills were potentially lethal.  Add in a home invasion, a Bravo feud, and a YouTube take down, and you’ve got one high-impact episode on your hands!

Jon and Kate + H8
4471
Jon and Kate Gosselin have 99 problems but 8 of them are not their adorable kids. TLC show “Jon and Kate Plus 8” started out as a great way to support their family, but soon turned into a contemptuous struggle, a nasty divorce, complicated custody agreements, and allegations of cheating and stealing. Who is worse, Jon or Kate? It’s hard to say and probably depends on what year it is, but Jon’s Ed Hardy and DJ-ing years certainly don’t help his case. Listen now as Melissa focuses on the Jon half of this equation, to help make up your mind, then be sure to let us know what you think!

4171
Are you ready for a whale of a tale? You might know him as Dorit’s husband, but Rebekah would like to introduce you to Paul Kemsley, International Man of tax evasion and gambling debts. Oh, he also loves soccer! PK went from a teenaged suit salesman to one of London’s top tycoons, now he is a house husband whom Rebekah and Melissa can’t agree on.

Scott Stapp: No Good CREED Goes Unpunished
3518
Melissa invites us — with arms wide open — to join her in Florida – the birthplace of the Grammy Award Winning rock band, CREED. Frontman Scott Stapp isn’t typical reality TV material, but trust, he made appearances on VHI’s Couples Therapy. Like any rock and roll band worth their salt, CREED excelled on stage (except for that one time the audience sued them), but they were falling apart behind the scenes. Stapp’s past trauma and current mental health struggles interfered with every facet of his life and point us back to a common thesis question here on CRIMINALITY: Is redemption even possible when it comes to douchebags?

TLC: Ain't 2 Proud 2 Declare Bankruptcy
3963
In today’s episode, Rebekah dives deep into the waterfalls of the #1 girl group in the world: TLC! But it wasn’t all Grammys and hit singles for this trio. Despite their global success, T-Boz, Left Eye, and Chili found themselves completely broke due to the greed of an industry that steals from new artists. Add to this a few reality shows, health issues, arson, and an unexpected tragedy, and you get one heartbreakingly crazy, sexy, cool, episode.  For the next episode, Melissa shared 3 clues:  TI, JAGGER, FSU!

Mama June: Honey BOO HOO

Who knew that a story that begins with an entertaining and adorable toddler — with a tiara, of course, would end up so dang dark? Melissa shares the family drama of Mama June, the mostly terrible men in her life, and her four daughters who deserved so much better. You likely know “Honey Boo Boo,” but you’ll know Mama June — in all her sizes and stages — inside and out by the end of the show. And let’s just say, to know her is not to love her.

We Stan a Cheater Brand: RHONY, SUMMER HOUSE, RHONJ
4446
When it comes to Bravo-lebrities, brands are essential and must be protected at all costs. But as today’s story shows, that cost can be more than most Bravo-lebrities can afford! Sometimes a well intentioned reality star can get carried away with an idea before realizing it was actually somebody else’s. OR WAS IT?  We’re talking CHEATER BRANDS in today’s episode and Rebekah shares not one, but three cases of Bravo stars getting into lawsuits over their precious brand babies. From RHONY to RHONJ, with a fun Summer House interlude, you will be given the facts of these alleged cheater brands. She asks Melissa to make rulings on each case and we want to hear from you too!

Wondery Presents: The Execution of Bonny Lee Bakley
376
On May 4, 2001, Bonny Lee Bakley was found fatally shot in a car on a dark North Hollywood street. The prime suspect was her husband, famed actor Robert Blake. But Bonny, a longtime con artist, had plenty of enemies. She left behind a trail of men she’d scammed, and she had a volatile relationship with Christian Brando, the troubled son of movie star Marlon Brando. Not since the O.J. Simpson case had the eyes of the nation been so fixated on a homicide. The search for Bonny’s killer took detectives on an eleven-month odyssey across the country and through Hollywood's underbelly of hustlers, drug addicts, and would-be hitmen. It would be the most expensive murder investigation in LAPD history to date. This is the story of Robert and Bonny’s toxic relationship, her shocking murder, and his chaotic trial. Did actor Robert Blake kill his wife? Or was the murder someone else's vendetta?From Wondery, and the team behind the hit series Hollywood & Crime (The Dating Game Killer, The Wonderland Murders, Death of Starlet) comes a six-part series about love, obsession and fame gone wrong.

Who Wants to Marry a (Maybe) Multi-Millionaire (with a record)?
3520
When it comes to reality romance shows, The Bachelor, and its Executive Producer, Mike Fliess, are probably the pinnacle in terms of popularity and recognition. Well, that is very much not the show Melissa tells us about today. The show at the center of today’s story was a one-hit wonder, though most would say it was a total miss.  “Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?” debuted in the year 2000,  and the bachelor they selected had an alarming rap sheet that slid by preliminary background checks, an exaggerated IMDB profile, and was maybe very probably, NOT a multi-millionaire.

INTRODUCING: Persona: The French Deception
309
Introducing the true crime podcast Persona: The French Deception— the story of Gilbert Chikli, one of the greatest con artists of all time. What does it feel like to pick up the phone and scam someone out of $50 million? Host and award-winning journalist, Evan Ratliff, investigates how Chikli successfully duped some of the world’s most powerful people into handing over their fortunes. He explores how Chikli evaded the law for years and became a Robin Hood-like hero. More than just a tale of criminal genius, this is a show about the moment we’re living in right now — the golden age of scammers — and the power of seduction. But what happens when the fantasy we’ve been lured into finally crumbles away? For all that and more, follow “Persona: The French Deception” wherever you get your podcasts.

Ashton Kutcher: Two and a Half Lawsuits
3251
Before there was MTV’s Punk’d, there was MTV’s Harassment. Never heard of it? This problematic show got canceled before it aired and for good reason! Rebekah and Melissa often recount stories that include reality shows we loved, we hated, we totally missed , or completely forgot about. But today’s story is unique: Rebekah centers on well-known star Ashton Kutcher, and not one but TWO reality shows he created that never saw the light of day, but did manage to get sucked into lawsuits.  Melissa shared three clues for the next episode: Marriage, Money, Mike (Fleiss) Follow us on social media!

All KAIL The Queen of Teen Mom
3992
Melissa takes us on a journey into the phenomenon that is TEEN MOM. While precisely nobody involved in her story is still a teen, there is still plenty of mama drama, and Melissa guides us through the best and worst of it — including the epic battle between Kail and Brianna which included expensive lawsuits, extravagant gag gifts, and copious amounts of coverage on the ladies’ Instagram Stories! Where did all of that stem from? An alleged haircut that turned into criminal charges and legal accusations.  Rebekah shared three clues for the next episode: 70’s, Shark, Ghost!

YOLANDA: No Good Hadid Goes Unpunished
3826
We are back in Beverly Hills once again! This time Rebekah shares the mysteries, marriages and medical records of Yolanda Hadid. Her life goes in many directions from lemon picking to horseback riding, but there is ONE direction we don’t think she saw coming. From her first husband, Mohammed’s monstrous, not to mention illegal, real estate property in Belaire, to her marriage with David Foster - which we can’t help but feel was always out of tune, to her journey with Lyme disease, and finally, her road to recovery which led to a dramatic altercation with daughter Gigi’s boyfriend, Zayne Malik.  Melissa shared three clues for the next episode: DELAWARE, MTV, JAVI!

Wondery Presents: Blood Ties Season 3 – “Strange Days"
354
Our family members are not always who we think. When Eleonore Richland exposed her father’s dark legacy, she vowed to clean up the family business – and hired her half-brother, Santino Reyes, to help her do it. But old habits die hard. In the shocking new third season, Eleonore reckons with what her father always taught her growing up: medicine is a bloody business. From Wondery, the makers of “The Shrink Next Door” and “Dr. Death,” Blood Ties stars Gillian Jacobs (Community, Love), Christian Navarro (13 Reasons Why), and Peter Stormare.

Apollo Nida's In a Pickle
2840
Melissa is coming in HOT - Hotlanta, that is. It’s her debut Housewives episode, and it is just peachy. From Phaedra's impressive career to her “murky” pregnancy timeline, Melissa explores Phaedra’s success on and off the set of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. But today’s story centers on her previous husband and the father of a real-life angel, Apollo Nida. While happily married and raising young kids, Apollo relied on Phaedra’s legal expertise when he asked her to bail him out of jail. But as he went on to scam and defraud people in shady business practices (a la Jen Shah - allegedly), Phaedra refused to continue helping him out, leaving Apollo in a pickle that was not nearly as fun as the one in her pregnancy photoshoot.

Where Are they Now? 30 Episodes Update!
6593
Thirty episodes and one year later - it was the perfect time for Melissa and Rebekah to host a “Where are they now?” episode? Until it wasn’t. (insert Dateline narration here) The ladies went episode by episode and updated one another on the latest news for each story. They revealed everything from show cancellations nobody saw coming (Farewell, Flip or Flop) to Hollywood connections, with an emphasis on the CON. (Looking at you, Rand!) Some episodes didn’t have anything new to discuss, but Rebekah and Melissa still managed to talk for nearly two hours. The next day Melissa and Rebekah woke up to FIVE, count them FIVE updates, but it was too late. The recording was done. You will just have to take their word for it — and watch their social media where they will undoubtedly lament their bad timing publicly.

PATRICIA + WHITNEY: Southern Harm
3724
Call your butler and ask them for a drink, because Rebekah is taking us down south today — right into Patricia Altschult’s stately home, where Whitney can be heard jamming on his gee-tar in the other wing. Try as she may, Rebekah was unable to find one charming thing about this show, but she did uncover a lesser-known legal feud between the show’s matriarch and her once friend, now nemesis, Cooper Ray. Rebekah vows not to discuss the more toxic storylines of the show, but don’t worry, Thomas and Kathryn’s mess seep right into this one because it’s practically unavoidable. Listen now, shower later! There are no clues for the next episode, because Melissa and Rbeekha are working on a special “Where Are They Now” episode!

FOFTY Shades of Rand
3817
Vanderpump Rules gave us LALA, but Melissa is giving us RAND. Randell Emmet, that is. Rand went from a young, ambitious film student to rolling with a star-studded entourage in Hollywood. He eventually had enough clout to win over Lala, but was less lucky in business than he was in love. He was known to use investors' money to pay off debts which got him in more than one lawsuit, and one very public feud with a man who refused to be short-changed. We are forever indebted to Fifty Cent for all that came after. Whatever you do, listen to this episode now, because on Monday it might be too late… Rebekah shared three clues for the next episode: Palmetto, Friends, + Michael! We are on YouTube!

Tarek + Christina: FLIP FLOP or FLIM FLAM?
5337
Rebekah leads us into new territory today; a real estate territory! But first, Melissa and Rebekah have to talk all things LOVE IS BLIND Season 2 - and they do. If you want to avoid spoilers, skip ahead to around 22:30. Back to real estate. Tarek and Christina are stars of the hit HGTV show, Flip or Flop, which Rebekah feels is about as fun as watching paint dry, which is also sometimes the show’s storyline. However, she’s telling their story because some of the more compelling plot points in their lives happened when the cameras weren’t rolling. From a “gun incident” that perplexed everyone, to a capital S “Scam” that the Feds had to shut down, these two haven't always enjoyed such great curb appeal. Rebekah and Melissa pause to connect the dots between Tarek and Christina's past and present romantic partners which might leave you seeing double.

Shanna Moakler Rocks + Rolls
3660
Forget meeting the Barkers, it’s time to meet. Ms. Shanna Moekler, an accomplished performer and professional in her own right. From her early success in state and national pageants, to her time on TV + Film sets with the likes of Billy Idol, Mario Lopez, and Drew Barrymore, Shanna captivated those around her with her high energy, likable personality and of course, her undeniable beauty. She’s been romantically linked to Dennis Quaid, Oscar De La Hoya and Travis Barker, and while she has mostly stayed out of trouble, there was of course, some star-studded legal drama along the way. (Looking at you, Paris Hilton!) And because all our stories eventually lead back to a Kardashian, there’s some Travis Barker involvement to round out this rock star love story that went south.

Tori Spelling: 9021 OH-NO
4102
Welcome to the 25th episode of CRIMINALITY - because loving reality (TV) isn’t a crime! Melissa shares the “stori” of a woman who has TV in her blood. Tori Spelling grew up in a life of luxury due to the successful shows her Dad, Aaron Spelling, created. But she went on to have a “Rags to Riches in Reverse” kind of story. From a measly inheritance to back taxes, and a couple pricey lawsuits, Tori Spelling was “inn” over her head financially. Today’s episode has a lot of nostalgic tv memories and a video clip you will never unsee! For the next episode, Rebekah shared 3 clues:  TV ROYALTY, CULT, YUGOSLAVIA! We are on YouTube!

What happens in this episode, STAYS in the episode. Nah, go ahead and tell everyone, actually. Once you hear some of the details that Rebekah shares about the Pawn Stars guys (which include about two too many Rick’s), you won’t be able to keep it to yourself. Melissa was surprised to learn just HOW successful a show Pawn Stars is, and shocked at where the police found some of the most incriminating evidence at Chum Lee’s house.  Melissa shared 3 clues to the next episode: COLORADO, FAKE, FAMILY!

This week, Melissa has a “love story” for us! She delves deep into the history of “Married at First Sight’ including the difficulties new couple Taylor and Brandon had ultimately leading to mutual restraining orders! She also shocks Rebekah with cringe-worthy audio from the wedding of Jamie and Doug, who are one of about a dozen MAFS “success stories.” Together they ponder the motives, meaning, and occasional misdemeanors at the heart of this iconic show.  Rebekah shared 3 clues to the next episode: VEGAS, GOLD, GUNS!

Tareq + Michaele Salahi: Don't Start Believin' (Anything They Say)
5069
Rebekah leads us to the United States capitol city, Washington DC, where we reminisce about the only Housewives franchise to have just one season. More importantly, she shares one possible reason: The Salahis. Gate Crashers. DC Grifters. State Dinner Scammers. Call them what you want, this couple dominated the news cycle for a brief moment in 2009/2010, but Rebekah will reveal how their journey didn’t end after their hearing before the Secret Service Committee did.  Melissa shared 3 clues to the next episode: SURPRISE, DR.

David Spade: Just (Don't) Shoot Me
3900
Melissa takes us somewhere she always wants to go: behind the scenes of SNL. We meet Joe Dirt aka David Spade (or Dana Carvey if you’re Rebekah), to learn about his wild upbringing  (guns and deserts), incredible career, and harrowing run-in with a violent assistant that we think more people should know about. And if you want to know theREALITY of it, David Spade is one of the new hosts adding some much needed life into “Bachelor in Paradise.” For TV sharing time, Rebekah gave a lukewarm mention to a new show on Acorn TV, “Finding Alice,” and says she is unsure if it will get better or if she will continue. Stay tuned. Melissa is comfort re-watching VEEP because life is hard and it’s sometimes good to go with what you know. Rebekah shared 3 clues to the next episode: JOURNEY, PAY PER VIEW, OASIS.

Rachel Uchitel Spills the TEE
4321
In today’s episode, Rebekah paints a more accurate picture of Rachel Uchitel - love her or hate her, there’s a lot to her story that the tabloids missed. Yes, she is the one who was in an extramarital relationship with golf legend, Tiger Woods, but she’s also the one who tragically lost her father to drugs, lost her fiance to the World Trade Center attacks, and who can’t seem to repair her tarnished image. From Celebrity Rehab to a little-known RHONY + RHOBH connection, this story is hardly PAR for the COURSE.  Melissa and Rebekah double up on what they’re watching once again, and then Melissa really unleashes her feelings on a show you should definitely absolutely not watch under any circumstances. What show could inspire such a word of warning? Melissa shared 3 clues to the next episode: SNL, ASSISTANT, and MULLET! Color us excited! We are on YouTube!

Sean Stewart: Son of Follywood
3757
Melissa leads us down the Hollywood walk of fame in this episode, except the story’s leading man isn’t as famous as his rock legend father, and that’s kind of the problem. Sean Stewart, son of Rod, has a serious anger management problem that landed him in rehab and more than a few physical altercations. In typical rich kid fashion, he evaded jail and instead launched bogus businesses and starred in D list reality shows. It really seems like some guys have all the luck.   Rebekah gave Melissa the following clues for her next story: golf, NYC, and NDA. Any guesses?   Also, you can now WATCH our episodes on YouTube!

3861
Join us as we charter new territory - game shows and the UK! Rebekah shares the biggest scandal in game show history that all began with a cough heard ‘round the world! From our 2021 perspective, that alone would be criminal, but was there more to it? A conspiracy to steal the grand prize? From Who Wants to Be a Millionaire to Wife Swap, and a whole lot in between, Rebekah breaks down the story allowing you to answer the ultimate question of their guilt or innocence, but sorry, you cannot phone a friend.   For the second time in CRIMINALITY history, Melissa and Rebekah are watching (and loving!) the same show! HBO Max’s (duh) White Lotus. Who else has been swept away to this doomed destination?   Melissa provides the following clues for the next episode: Adrienne, Audrina, Maggie Mae.

Ryan Lochte: Between a Lochte and a Hard Place
3906
Have you caught the Olympic fever yet? Melissa presents a medal-worthy story in keeping with the global games, and it’s full of wins, losses, and...lies! Travel back in time with us to 2016 when US Olympic swimmer, Ryan Lochte, was desperately trying to emerge from Michael Phelp’s shadow. He was close to getting gold in Rio De Janeiro but ended up being remembered for a lot more than his near victory. Ryan sets out to redeem himself the best way he knows how… reality TV appearances, of course! Grab your country’s flag and get ready to cheer “JEAH” for this story that truly has it all: games, guns, and grills!   What are we watching? Rebekah gives a very lukewarm review of Netflix’s three-part series, SOPHIE: Murder in West Cork. It’s really beautiful, though, so there’s that. Melissa doesn’t need to convince Rebekah to give her latest HBO Max ( will they just sponsor us already?) show a try; The Other Two, a comedy centered around siblings who are dealing with the youngest of the three becoming YouTube famous. Lots of good actors and cameos!   Rebekah provides the following clues for the next episode: UK, Wife Swap, and fraud! Any guesses? Follow us on social media!

Elizabeth Vargas: Orange You Grateful for the OC?
3995
It was just a matter of time until Rebekah covered a cult. But before she leads (not in a culty way) Melissa to Arizona and Missouri, she takes a minute to appreciate the splendor and entertainment mecca, Orange County, California. Rebekah then tackles the confession Elizabeth Lyn Vargas, of RHOC, made to Braunwyn last season. She didn’t give a lot of details, but Rebekah was determined to uncover everything she could - and what she found includes wild stories about Elizabeth’s grandmother, Dorothy Mae Bell, and her leadership of two fringe family cults and crimes including concealment of a dead body, and kidnapping charges. This is an episode of Criminality unlike the others.   What are we watching?

Bret Michaels: Rock of Stages
3334
Bret Michaels is the bandana-wearing star of today’s story, which Melissa leads like a rock star. Bret had more luck on the charts than he did in the courts, first after his debaucherous behavior on Rock of Love, and then when he sued the Tony Awards for their failure to keep him safe on stage after his live performance. I guess it’s true that every cowboy (and rock star) sings a sad, sad song.  Rebekah reveals the show she is watching is about kids but NSFW, and Melissa shares the show she is watching in a way that no one will ever understand. Including her. Then Rebekah shares her three clues for the next episode: FBI, MISSOURI, DIVORCE. (What?!?) Follow us on social media!

Learn how she went from a tambourine playing toddler to the daughter of a music legend, and all the good, bad and ugly that comes along with coming of age in Hollywood.

Kim Kardashian: I Love Paris in the Ring-time
3631
Rebekah sets the scene for Paris Fashion Week, 2016. She lays out the lesser known details surrounding the jewelry theft and attack in which Kim Kardahsian was a victim. Police say it was the largest heist Paris has seen in decades, so why do we know so little? Where was her bodyguard? How did these men get in? Was the nightwatchman involved? It was hard, but we did our best to Keep Up With The Kardashian’s in this French Kaper. Melissa is up next episode and offers these three clues as to what her story is about: a will, Howard Stern, and Hard Rock Live. Color me intrigued! Any guesses? Let us know on social media!
