Hollywood Hookups and Breakups with Cooper Lawrence and Bravo TV host Vikki Ziegler launches on BlogTalkRadio

September 2nd is the launch date for Hollywood Hookups and Breakups, a new podcast by radio and TV personality Cooper Lawrence and Vikki Ziegler of Bravo TV’s hit show Untying the Knot, which enters its second season in November.

BlogTalkRadio General Manager Andy Toh expressed his enthusiasm about the new show “We love to offer listeners dynamic and knowledgeable personalities like Cooper Lawrence and Vikki Ziegler. Who better than a psychologist and a divorce attorney to give advice on the ups and downs of marriage and other relationships?”

Cooper Lawrence said “The on air chemistry I feel with Vikki is contagious. It’s smart talk which will also make you laugh and be able to identify with our personalities. We are women supporting other women and keeping it real, and BlogTalkRadio shares our philosophy, so it’s a perfect fit all around.”

Vikki Ziegler added “As an expert in the divorce field, I think it’s time for someone to step up to the plate and teach people what goes wrong in marriages so we can all try to stay in healthy happy ones…And who doesn’t like to talk about a celebrity hookup or breakup?!”

Cooper and Vikki are prepping for an exclusive interview with Alyssa Milano this fall. She’ll be dishing on celebrity hookups and breakups like the recent split between Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green.

Other episodes will focus on topics like the dysfunctional Kardashian family.

 

Fans can subscribe to the weekly download of Hollywood Hookups and Breakups on BlogTalkRadio each Wednesday.
