On this solo episode of Straight Up With Stassi, it’s Stassi’s therapy sesh. And she has a message for you, dear podcast listeners and Khaleesis:
“I wanna say something, and this chick might hear this, she might not. I was taking my dogs out a couple of days ago, and I had no makeup on, my hair was in a bun, my extensions showing like I was Britney Spears circa 2004 with Kevin Federline eating Cheetos and shit. I was about to go spray tan, so I didn’t even have moisturizer on. All of the sudden I see this girl walk by on the sidewalk, and she’s walking a bunch of dogs. Not just a few, these can’t all possibly be her dogs. She has headphones in, and all of the sudden she takes out her headphones and she’s like, ‘Oh my God, I’m listening to your podcast right now.’
It was such a cool moment.
I’ve met a lot of you guys and it’s happened a couple of times where people are like, ‘Holy shit, I’m listening to your podcast right now.’ Those moments, I never forget them. I never forget them, because it really just makes me feel so lucky to have a community of like-minded people. I feel like having this podcast — I’ve done it now for two and a half years — you’re my friends and family because I share all of my ups and downs. I feel vulnerable, I feel exposed, and sometimes I get freaked out about things I say. In the beginning, I used to ask to have things edited out the first couple of months. And then I finally realized, ‘No, if I’m going to do this, I need to be who I am.’ If I make a mistake or I say something that I actually regret, I need to keep it out there and I’ll correct myself with the next episode. I wish I could explain what it feels like to meet podcast listeners. It’s the coolest feeling in the entire world.”
