AfterPartyPod: Carrie White

Author Carrie White has lived many lives. The first female hairdresser to the stars, White tended to the tresses of everyone from Ann Margaret and Elvis to Sharon Tate and Elizabeth Taylor. And she did it all on rollerskates (it was the 70s, people). But her high-flying life—which included three husbands and five children—was masking a crippling drug addiction which eventually left her curled up in the fetal position outside her dealer's door. Now sober for multiple decades, White built her hairdressing business back up and published a best-selling memoir, Upper Cut, about the entire thing. Here she talks to AfterPartyChat's Anna David about bottoming out, coming back, and how getting sober but continuing to smoke is like switching seats on the Titanic.

AfterPartyPod: Jennifer Gimenez

Actress and reality star Jennifer Gimenez first worked as a teenage model before acting alongside Johnny Depp in Blow and Cameron Diaz in The Sweetest Thing. But many first came to know her when she was the house manager on Sober House—a job she got after she went from being one of Dr. Drew's nightmare clients to one of his miracles. Here she and AfterPartyChat's Anna David talk about the drug dealer they used to share, how they first got sober together back in the early 2000s and whether or not Gimenez would use her real name if she was a drug dealer.
