What happens when you put four intelligent, clever, funny, opinionated and sassy ladies on a couch together to talk about whatever is happening in the world that day? Who freaking knows. We certainly don’t. That’s because when it comes to fab foursome Melissa Grelo, Cynthia Loyst, Lainey Lui and Traci Melchor, anything can happen on any given day of The Social.
Over the course of two seasons the ladies have proven that everything is on the table when it comes to discussions on the show. So naturally, there have been a few select episodes that have left us in stitches, and others where our jaws have mopped the floor. From nose-picking and tampons to touchdowns and snuggles, they’ve pretty much covered it all.
Now, after a brief summer hiatus, we can’t wait to see what these gals have in store for us when the show returns to CTV for a third season on August 31st. Until then, let’s revisit some of the most shocking moments to date, shall we?
1. The Tampon Discussion
There has been a lot of scary information about tampons out there lately. But when’s the last time you had a discussion about brands, leakage and the like with your girlfriends? Been a while, has it? No worries, The Social ladies have you covered, here.
2. Jess snuggles up
If it was your teenage dream to meet heartthrob Josh Hartnett, you’ll appreciate this video most. While the Penny Dreadful star was in Toronto promoting the second season of the show this past spring, he stopped by The Social where Jess got her snuggle on…
3. The delivery room
There has been a lot of chatter about pregnancy on the show — especially given Melissa’s openness about what a hard time she and her husband had getting pregnant in the first place. There has also been a lot of talk about baby delivery. But one topic that hadn’t been broached is whether kids (yep, kids — not husbands) should be allowed in the delivery room. Until now.
Ever dealt with a gambling addiction? Turns out you’re not alone. In this clip, Lainey reveals her surprise gambling addiction from the past in a pretty frank way if we do say so ourselves.
5. The Boob Tube
These ladies seem uber confident about their own bodies, do they not? So you can imagine our surprise when Melissa revealed that she had a breast augmentation procedure done in the past.
6. Nose picking
Who picks their nose? No, really — when no one is looking. Sometimes you just have to do a little digging, according to one member of the show…
7. Finding your inner Bey
Everyone looks good with a wind machine, right? Especially Beyonce. If you’ve ever wondered what Lainey could do with such a contraption, this clip will definitely ease your mind.
8. We see London, we see France…
We don’t see all of the hosts underpants. Probably because it’s not always kosher to wear them?
9. Six points for Jess
Celebratory touchdowns in the NFL are a thing of the past (sorry Jerry Maguire). Until now, when Jess invoked her inner athlete with none other than Luke Wilson.
10. The real deal
Remember that epic How to Get Away with Murder scene, in which Viola Davis removes her eyelashes and wig? Traci and Cynthia prove here that Viola has nothing on them…
11. A surprise revelation
Cancer is a terrible part of all our lives — whether we get the disease or know someone who has. Here, one of the co-hosts shares her own experience with cancer in the frankest way possible. Bravo to that.
