Whispering Angel rosé is synonymous with the chic Hamptons crowd that nearly drank it into a shortage, but for a certain, non-Hamptons frequenting sect of the population, its status comes courtesy of Danielle Schneider and Casey Wilson—comedians, writers, actresses and hosts of the popular podcast Bitch Sesh: A Real Housewives Breakdown.
Every week on Bitch Sesh, Schneider (co-creator and co-star of Hulu’s hilarious reality-TV parody series Hotwives) and Wilson (Schneider’s Hotwives co-star, as well as Tig Notaro’s girlfriend on the Amazon breakout hit One Mississippi) dissect what’s going on in the drama-filled world of Bravo reality TV, with a special focus on the Real Housewives. And if the Real Housewives are involved you better believe that wine is as well. After the pair did a taste test of Whispering Angel on the podcast, their followers took to Facebook and Twitter, posting photos of rosé bottles waiting to be enjoyed across the country—in grocery stores, on back decks, in refrigerators. FWx talked to Whispering Angel’s most popular unofficial brand ambassadors about how they created a rosé craze and what they’ll be drinking this fall. And for Bitch Sesh superfans, we bring good news. Says Schneider: “Casey and I are trying to take Bitch Sesh on tour and get it out to the people. It’s important work that must be seen live.”
How did you come up with the idea for Bitch Sesh? Your podcast might be the best thing to happen to me this year.
