In this week’s episode, we got right into it with a no-holds-barred discussion about Marie Kondo and her buzzy new Netflix show, “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.” The series follows the Japanese organizing guru as she imparts her wisdom to families who desperately need help decluttering their homes. This includes teaching them her KonMari method of tidying, which helps you winnow down the stuff in your home and keep only the items that “spark joy” for you. Some people think Kondo’s process is nonsense; others swear by the KonMari method. Natalie and Rachel share their honest feelings about the first two episodes of “Tidying Up,” and how they feel about Kondo’s methods—inspiring, or ridiculous?
We also investigate why no one wants to buy Elvis Presley‘s honeymoon hideaway in Palm Springs, CA. The sprawling midcentury modern home that the King once shared with his bride, Priscilla Presley, has been on the market for years. You’d think people would be begging to grab a piece of history for themselves. At first glance, the house’s celeb pedigree, iconic architecture, and ideal location are a no-brainer for a wealthy buyer looking for a vacation home in the desert. But upon further inspection, we think we know why no one wants to buy it.
We close out our first episode of 2019 with our first celebrity real estate winner and loser of the year. Who made a slam-dunk deal and who threw a total air ball? Listen in to find out.
