The Shower with Amanda Righetti
Play • 1 hr 24 min

Rachel and Melinda are joined by Amanda Righetti, who played Hailey Nichol on The OC, to discuss “The Shower,” (S1 Ep25). See how it all began for Amanda with a deal with Fox, which landed her on The OC for her first major acting role. And then, how that same deal, took her away from the show!

What was it like playing a role much older than she was? A role where she had to make out with Tate Donovan? Listen to find out! 

Melinda and Amanda skip ahead to discuss their iconic catfight scene in The Strip. They also reminisce about her role as a stripper on The L.A. and Hailey’s devious ways sending Kirsten and Sandy to a swingers party in The Countdown.

Their conversation takes a serious turn when the hosts and Amanda address Theresa’s domestic abuse storyline in The Shower, as well as the prevalence of this abuse in today’s society. On a lighter note, they discuss the concept of a best friend, and everyone’s surprise when Julie tells Kirsten she’s her Maid of Honor! And of course, the most awkward lunch ever with Seth and Summer’s dad must be discussed!

The Shower Synopsis: Reluctantly, Kirsten and Marissa must throw a bridal shower for Julie. Marissa invites a surprise guest, Aunt Cindy, as a way to spite her mom. Seth meets Summer’s father at a lunch so awkward, it’s hard to watch. Theresa enlists Sandy’s legal advice when Eddie hits her, and Ryan wants to take matters into his own hands.
