We are joined by one of Mara's ex co workers Anastasia Vitale. Anastasia is a young, sexy woman that is rough around the edges and is tired of little wimpy men in her life like Andrew. She tells us her story of a tough break up from a guy she met at a rave. Then she married an Irish co worker to help him stay in the country and for some reason that didn't work out either. It was a doozie of a story.

This week we have a great guest and comedian Sam Tripoli. Sam is a son of divorced parents. He talks about how you don't see things for the way they really are until later in life and how that can be a good thing. Long car rides with the family and seeing his mother not speak or look at his father for hours was a clue that maybe things weren't going that well. We also get into gold diggers and discuss the positives and negatives.

Incredible episode with Christina Galston. Such a raw, honest episode. Christina parents had a nasty divorce that left her dad battling addiction, her mom being a drama queen and Christina losing some teeth. She hilariously talks about how her family dynamics fell apart and how you can be Jewish but still be hood to the core. 
You can find her on Instagram at Freakinjewrican.
