Former love of Mallory’s life, Orlando Bloom is now betrothed to Katy Perry. Those two crazy kids have decided to the take the slow road to marriage by having a long engagement. We discuss whether this is just Hottie Bloom’s ploy to wait for Mallory to run into him at a “Con” and steal his heart or if he and Katy are just doing a super healthy thing by taking their time.

Moral to the Story: Getting married to fix an issue in a relationship won’t work.

Episode 6.2: Mallory, The Bachelorette Cynic

In the exciting second part of this thrilling episode, Mallory continues to watch the contesticles get out of cars and drink, and dunk basketballs, and critique each other’s clothes in the name of “love”.

Moral to the Story: Be honest because telling people in advance you have warrants, are a homophobe, a racist, a virgin, or, a persistent gentleman will surely still get you on a romance reality competition show.

Episode 2, Part 1: Thieves in the House of Love

In this week’s episode, Mallory & Tamu are joined by their first special guest, Sarah Penn, for a look at what is in the Tarot cards for them in relation to love.

Sarah is an amazingly talented woman and gifted tarot card reader who lovingly donated a Saturday to give the ladies a reading, and also hit them with profound, optimistic, and meaningful insights related to love. For example, “The rightness of being in someone’s space is love.”

Mallory is on deck (get it?!) first and her cups runneth over. Which means she had a lot of cups in her spread (that is a good thing). She shares her wisdom from her recent travels that marriage could now be an option for her because has come to understand that it truly is a partnership.

At the end of the reading, it was clear that the universe knew its audience and provided the most specific reading to the most literal person in the world, Mallory.

Sarah pretty much confirmed the theme of Bad at Love Podcast, “Love is not going to look like what we think it should.”

Moral of the Story: The picket fence is not going to happen. It is possible to be connected in other ways.

Other Fun Topics Discussed:

  • Valentine’s Day
  • Everyone has baggage, but it is your own, not anyone else’s
  • It is important to stay in your power
