Episode 10: 'Til We Get By, I'm On Your Side

May 15, 2019

The gang’s all here and we’re thankful... MJ and Dani host their first live taping. The laughs, tears and love are all on high! MJ is at least 3 glasses in by the start of the episode and it doesn’t take long for Dani to catch up! MJ asks Dani to join her as she Rings It In and they reveal the truths they’ve learned about each other during the first season. The facts prove that their friendship is strong enough to stand the test of cancer and the launch of a podcast. Dani dedicates The Heart To Say It to a very special friend and it leads to a season finale that ends in promises of better friendships and unconditional love.
