TV personality Georgia Hardstark is one half of the dynamic duo known as Alie and Georgia but she’s a fascinating woman all on her own. People came to find out about her after she and Alie Ward made a video of them concocting a joke cocktail called a McNuggetini and the video went viral; next they were being profiled in The New York Times and starring in the Food Network’s Drinks with Alie and Georgia. The Cooking Channel’s Classy Ladies with Alie & Georgia and Tripping Out with Alie & Georgia followed, as well as their highly addictive Slumber Party with Alie and Georgia podcast.
But it hasn’t been all pretty dresses and TV appearances for Georgia: a troubled teen, she got into meth, was sent to rehab and wised up quickly (she’s not an addict, was just a wild kid). She’s also struggled with eating disorders, esteem issues and all the other things that come along, all too often, with just being a woman—er, a person—in society today. Here, we talk about wild youths, finding stability and what happens when best friends fight, among many other topics. [Note: In this podcast, we discuss the fact that Hardstark was doing hard drugs and was able to stop without getting sober; this isn’t to say that AfterParty recommends this path for people who are using these sorts of drugs; addiction is self-diagnosed and many who use harder drugs aren’t doing so recreationally. OKAY LECTURE OVER, NOW ENJOY THE DELIGHTFUL MISS HARDSTARK.]
