Though she rose to fame as a writer, Heather McDonald is probably best known to the masses for her role on The Chelsea Handler Show. That was, of course, until 2015 when she started her own podcast. Titled Heather McDonald’s Juicy Scoop, the show, as its name would suggest, tackles a number of topics that are of high interest for its provocative and controversial nature. McDonald is currently doing a string of dates, including three of which are in Irvine, on her current tour. What makes this different is that she’s doing her podcast in front of a live audience. For fans, that means that the old adage of expecting the unexpected holds true, especially when that’s dependent on the news of the day. So sit back, buckle up and take a bit of the Juicy Scoop of whatever info McDonald will have to offer.
