Katie, Alex and Janine are back together for THE RE-RU-NION YOU’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR (we assume).  Here it is, our very own Shequal: the West Coast goes pants to pants for part two of this week’s dueling episodes.  The founding Mothaaaas of The Shade of It All wax nostalgic about this week’s AS2 episode, investigate basement flooding insurance, pop multiple garbage bubbles and defend their tickle-things.  How much scandalous overlap will there be between the episodes? Listen with your eyes readers, and find out! (music: www.bensound.com)

Due to an excited lack of communication, the East Coast Shade Table and the West Coast Shade Table recorded All Star ramp-up episodes SIMULTANEOUSLY WITHOUT THE OTHER KNOWING IT!  But you win in the long run Readers as we present the West Coast episode only days after the East Coast one dropped.  Now you can get twice as excited about All Stars Twice.  Will there be overlap?  Will there be wildly contrasting viewpoints?  Will Alex, Caitlin, Kelly and special guest TODD MASTERSON wear caftans in spin class and reveal the ALASKA 5000 SCANDAL 2016?  Listen to find out!

This week is a BIG and complicated episode for a big and complicated season.  The good news: KATYA IS MISS CONGENIALITY!  I mean, like it wasn’t gonna happen.  But with all the weird surprises of the season, it was still a reason for panic.  AND as long as we are on surprises, Alex has two for us this episode.  First, and worst: Dad is going out for cigarettes and never coming back.  That’s right, it’s with great sadness we announce that Alex is moving to LA and (for now) leaving the Shade Table.  Boo and double boo.  The second surprise comes in the form of a long overdue confession…but I won’t ruin this one.  Let’s just say Dad hasn’t been serving the realness for a long time.  Happy Season, Readers!  And in the immortal words of Katya, “OH MY GOD YOU FUCKING BITCH!” (music: http://www.bensound.com)
