Show Notes for Thursday, June 08, 2023


Dear John,

My husband and I are expecting a child. I want to have a gender reveal party, but he does not want to do that. He thinks the fad is pretty lame. My sister did a great party for her two daughters. I think it would be nice to do one as well. I think he mainly disliked the way they did there party. They did a white cake that had pink inside... so you cut the cake, almost like a wedding. I thought it was nice, but I'd like to come up with some ideas that he might like. Any fun ideas? Have you ever been to a gender reveal party? What is the best idea? Should we just skip the party?

Party or No Party?

SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Do you work on commission? Or is a large part of your pay based on quotas or bonuses? Uh-oh. Performance-based pay is not good for your health, a new study says. University of Aberdeen (Scotland) Business School researchers found that that workers receiving performance-related pay are more susceptible to chronic stress, heart disease, high blood pressure, and mental health issues. These conditions could, in turn, lead to coping mechanisms such substance use and addiction. The study’s authors wrote: “Given these findings, it’s crucial for companies to consider the potential impact on their employees and establish policies that support their well-being.”

A word of warning for you in case you’re one of those people who tend to leave wet towels on the floor and sometimes “forget” to grab a new toilet paper roll: One in 5 adults has ended a relationship over their partner’s bad bathroom habits. A survey of 2,000 British couples found that 70% are currently in the midst of “bathroom war” with their significant other. Men said the biggest issue was how much hair their partner left in the shower drain without cleaning it. Women were most turned off by the mess and smells a boyfriend left behind in the toilet.


Lisa Rinna is talking about her “Real Housewives” exit. In a new interview with ES Magazine, the former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star explained that she left the show last year because her life had become too “volatile”, and she and her family were even receiving death threats. Rinna said the “didn’t want to live like that”, saying: “The way the fanbase reacts to the show now is not how it was when I first started.” Being on the show for 8 seasons had also begun to seriously impact her family. Rinna said in addition to the death threats, she was seeing “Some of the most horrible things I’ve ever seen in print in my life, and it’s a reality show! It’s a stupid show!” She added that she’s not “sure how much longer that can exist in the zeitgeist, to be honest with you.”

These may be the waning days of the scripted cable blockbuster show, but nonetheless, the most-watched entertainment show of the just-completed 2022-2023 TV season was “Yellowstone”, according to just-released figures reported by Variety. In its list of America’s most-watched shows of the 2022-2023 season, NBC’s “NFL Monday Night Football” came in at #1, averaging just over 18 million viewers. Paramount’s Yellowstone was second, averaging about 11½ million, followed in the top-5, in order, by ESPN’s “Monday Night Football”, “NCIS” and “FBI”. Just in case you’re wondering, “American Idol” ranked #23, with an average of 6.7 million viewers.

Kourtney Kardashian is throwing more fuel on the sibling rivalry drama – by allegedly trying to get her own show — all about her! The mom of 3 wants her real life with husband Travis Barker, showcased on a reality show spinoff of “The Kardashians”. And Radar Online says the 44-year-old knows how to make it work. She is supposedly planning to capitalize on trying to have a baby with Barker. The publication claims: “She’s desperate to have a baby, but she’s also hugely cash-hungry and willing to use it to make money.”

Apple unveiled its new mixed reality headset on Monday at the 2023 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference. CEO Tim Cook said the device, which blends virtual reality and augmented reality, is “the first product you look through, not at.” The technology allows users to overlay virtual images on live video of the real world, and could be used to replace computers, televisions and gaming systems. Apple Vision Pro, the company’s biggest and riskiest new hardware launch in years, will cost US$3,499. The company says that once a user puts on the device, they can see apps directly projected in front of them. The device responds to a users’ voice, hands and eyes “as if your mind if guiding the experience.” And interestingly, the mixed reality headset will display the eyes of its users on the outside of the headset, a departure from how other headsets look and function. Apple says that is to allow users to feel like “you’re never isolated from the people around you, you can see them and they can see you.” It’ll be available early next year. LINK:
