(see what I did there?)  This is a hot topic (not at the mall --- though we wish, amiright?) and Casey is bringing exclusive tea!!It may have been a minute since their last episode what with responsibilities and living, but The Boys are picking right up where they left off discussing a bit of the short break and pondering what reimagined friend's gatherings might look like without food involved or centered around.  Trash Talk topics this week include the "return" of the not real Kitara Rivanche, a suburb of Calgary is seeking to ban a small controversial club, and Reindeer Tea!Y'all, The Boys are firing on all cylinders this week and you don't wanna miss all the tea and discussion surrounding Baby Reindeer!  So pour yourself a nice full pour of your favorite springtime port vintage, be sure your diaper is fresh, and pull up a chair at the table with your GBFFs because it's time to paint!=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-Let The Boys of Painted Trash know your thoughts on this week's topics and episode!

Then there's a lawsuit filed by an AirBNB guest after the host demanded to be paid per the rental agreement; when the guest refused to pay, the guest went ahead and spilled all his tea.  Other festive topics include an update on the Impeachment (scam) against President Biden, the real tea on what happened with Kelly Rowland's Today Show "appearance," and a Cameo "performer" is upset after being paid for content and people are seeing it. And you knew we would be talking about it -- the Alabama Supreme Court decision about the rights of embryos. The fallout is still evolving on this, but it's safe to say this one's a wreck.  Of course, Mark & Casey are giving you rec- (or wreck)- ommendations this week.This one's full of hilarity, discourse, some piping hot tea, and plenty of faggotry!  So pour yourself some fabulous, festive port vintage, get your diaper together, and pull up a seat next to your GBFs.  It's time to paint!-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-Let The Boys of Painted Trash know your thoughts on this week's topics and episode!
