What a Creep Season 11, Episode 2: Eddie Mannix

This episode was inspired by the 2016 Cohen Brothers movie Hail Cesar which stars George Clooney, Scarlett Johansen, Tilda Swinton, and Josh Brolin playing a very fictionalized version of longtime MGM enforcer—Eddie Mannix. The film presents him as a lovable rogue and family man who has the tough job of keeping his stars in check. He was known as “the Fixer” and in reality, there was little to love about the man.

Mannix was a ruthless thug who would beat up anyone who caused him a problem and made some folks disappear altogether. He had plenty of enablers including Richard Strickling (MGM Publicity Director) and Louis B. Mayer (President of MGM and past Creep.)

Today, we are sticking to Mannix’s assholery with some of the creepiest moments in Hollywood legend.

Trigger warning: Domestic Violence, sexual assault, and murder

What a Creep Season 10, Episode 9: The Gardner Museum Heist

In this episode, we are talking about our first “Mystery Creep” as it is about one of the biggest art heists of all time and features the city of Boston, the world of stealing art as a form of currency with law enforcement and gangsters.

In the 30+ years since the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum was vandalized with 13 works stolen (some ripped right out of their frame), there have been no arrests and the artwork has never been recovered.

So, the questions are? Who did it and why? Where is the artwork and what condition is it in?

Trigger warnings: Descriptions of violence and Margo’s weak attempts at a Boston and Irish accent.

What a Creep Season 10, Episode 7: Billy McFarland

On April 28, 2017, a tweet blew up the Internet from Trevor DeHaas, @trev4president with a picture of a very sad bread and cheese meal saying “Here’s the dinner they fed us tonight. Literally slices of bread, cheese, and salad with no dressing #fyrefraud #fyrefestival #dumpsterfyre

This was day one of the Fyre Festival fraud perpetrated by 25-year old Fyre Media CEO & Founder Billy McFarland. Hundreds of people were stranded, millions of dollars were borrowed and never paid back. Here is the story of one of the biggest (and youngest) frauds we have covered on this show.

What a Creep Season 10, Episode 5: Larry Nassar

Larry Nassar is one of the biggest creeps we have ever covered—which is really saying something. There have been a few times in the last 20 years where the media has talked about sexual abuse against young athletes—specifically in gymnastics which has competitors who begin the sport in their elementary school years.

Most people first learned of Dr. Larry Nassar in 2016 when he was publicly charged for possessing child pornography & tampering with evidence.  (Those are the formal charges.)

But the sport has several times in the past several decades was made aware of the problem of trainers, advisors, and doctors sexually assaulting participants as young as 6 years old. To say nothing was done would be an understatement.

Why did Larry Nassar finally come to justice? And who else was punished because of cruelty, abuse, and/or just turning a blind eye? That is our story today.

Trigger warnings: Sexual assault, grooming by predators, gaslighting, eating disorders, suicide, and physical assault.

What a Creep Update: Piers Morgan & Sharon Osbourne

Our special replay episode features Britain’s Piers Morgan who was a subject in our first season. From phone-hacking scandals and fat-shaming to racism and sexism, TV host Piers Morgan is a professional troll, who got his creepy career started working for Rupert Murdoch at News Of The World yet still somehow found a way to sink even lower.

Due to his leaving his cushy job Good Morning Britain and calling Meghan Markle a liar–we needed to revisit this Creep!

Now Sharon Osbourne is in a full PR nightmare due to her argument with fellow The Talk co-host Sheryl Underwood over Piers’s actions. Turns out Sharon has some accusations from former co-hosts like Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete who both say she used racial slurs off stage from the talk show.

This is put together with a little help from our friends at:

And then we will finish this episode with Margo announcing “Who’s NOT a Creep” this week.
