Gabrielle Ruiz:

Hey, Pallavi Did you know almost 75% of Americans are dehydrated. That means three out of four WAFF listeners aren't getting the gallon of water a day they need to reap the benefits of being fully hydrated.

Pallavi Sastry:

Wow, Gabrielle good thing 100% of WAFF hosts have the hydrojug

Gabrielle Ruiz:

Slay

Pallavi Sastry:

The hydrojug is a durable reusable bottle that holds a half a gallon of water. No need to keep filling up that tiny bottle every hour.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

And they come in fun colors with fashionable neoprene accessory sleeves that will keep your water cool and turning heads all day slay.

Pallavi Sastry:

I ditched my purse for a hydrojug ages ago. Each sleeve comes with a matching shoulder strap and two pockets which can hold your phone, keys, chapstick or anything else you need.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

My favorite reason to switch to the hydrojug is one person switching to a reusable water bottle like the hydrojug saves approximately 217 plastic water bottles from going to a landfill. The search for the best reusable bottle is over. By choosing the hydrojug you are making a difference.

Pallavi Sastry:

So true. I love the difference the hydrojug has made in my health and wellness. It's easy to keep track of my water consumption with the built in measurement scale. I'm drinking a gallon a day now I have more energy my skin looks soy slay and I am even eating better.

Now back to WAFF

Pallavi Sastry:

No really What are friends for friends are for reminding us that we're no good to each other if we don't take care of ourselves. And Gabrielle yesterday, I want to I want to I remember we were working on notes for the week because we have a live show coming up coming up as well. And you asked at like 330 ish. So round now we had already had like a long day of working and you were like, you want to keep going or or do you want to do it in the morning and I said, I'm really tired. I think I'm going to stop. And I honestly like that's really hard for me to do because you and I are both Workaholics. We're New Yorkholics And I want to thank you for creating a safe environment where I can admit that,

Gabrielle Ruiz:

Oh, I'm so glad you can feel like you can i think i thought yesterday was my day when you said do you want to work on these notes? And I was like I'm tired. Can we do it tomorrow we're like, maybe it was the day before. So I mean, mano a mano, we were friending and friending each other because listen, we talk about platonic love a lot on this show. And it's just as because it's just as important that romantic love is not the only thing that should be discussed when it comes to taking care of not only your circle, whether it be the big circle, the smaller the inner, the private circle, but also for yourself. And that to me is something that I'm so excited to bring on our guest friend who when we reached out to him, we were like, what do you want to talk about and it was all about being your own best friend and I was like, Pallavi, have we not talked about that yet? On what are friends for?

Pallavi Sastry:

I mean, we sort of like allude to self love, but like we don't really talk about how to embody that and I'm really excited to talk about that because i think you know, I'll just let him get to it. So I'm going to do then I'm gonna do the intro Okay, so we have we have Actor Host gamer and shine bright like a Frankie. Frankie Grande

Frankie Grande:

keep smiling, keep. You can always count on me to show that's what friends are for. I mean, you had to do it right. Like I had to do Am I the first guest to sing that song? Absolutely not good. No. Okay, I was gonna say I was gonna say, but the best I'm gonna say that I was the

Gabrielle Ruiz:

You're the best. It's the vibrato moment that really got me

Frankie Grande:

That's it. You gotta have that big, wide open vibrato for like, you know, just to kick things off, you know?

Pallavi Sastry:

To the mask.

Frankie Grande:

Hi, I'm so happy to be here. Thank you guys for having me. I'm so so happy to be with you.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

we reached out to you via email. I mean, we're what an April now we're recording this in April. This coming out in June which we're so excited about that you are leading out our month for pride month for our podcast and And I remember talking to Pallavi about this like maybe it feels like years ago we were like Frankie, I know you we love Courtney Reed Of course, like, let's have you on the show for me and I was just like it just finally happened. And I'm literally days from my maternity leave. And listen, I was like, make it happened before I leave. Yeah, cuz I want to talk to

Frankie Grande:

Congratulations

Gabrielle Ruiz:

Yes,

Frankie Grande:

that's amazing. I feel like COVID time, like, no one knows what that was or means or is, you know, like, it's like, oh, yeah, I just I just saw. So I just had a rehearsal for a live show that I was doing. And I got together with people that I haven't seen in over a year and four months. And it as soon as we got back together, it was like no time had passed. Like, it was like that magical thing when you were like, oh, like, it's, I feel like I saw you yesterday. I know. Because that COVID time, it's so specific, that it's just very easily deleted from your memory banks, because it was so repetitive.

Pallavi Sastry:

Right. And I have to say the last live show that I went to I think was December of 2019. I don't think I went to any live shows at the top of the year because you know, pilot season gets crazy. But December 2019. I actually saw you get on stage with Courtney at Broadway princess party in LA.

Frankie Grande:

That was such a good night. I loved that. She's so wonderful. And I got to sing with her. Yes. She was Moana.

Pallavi Sastry:

It was great. It was a great show. And I brought my parents to that show because they'd never seen Broadway princess party. And yeah, but that is that is my memory of live shows right now is the last time I saw that you were on stage.

Frankie Grande:

I love that. And I was performing right up until the pandemic hit. So hopefully there's other people that had that experience. And then maybe they'll come see me as soon as the world opens up again, which is sounding like it's coming up. So that's very exciting. Really.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

Yes, it's all about the vaccinations and all about getting together with your friends. I mean, it is everyone is just ready to do that park date or that inside date where you're like having rose and around a table.

Frankie Grande:

Yeah. Oh my god. are hugging.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

Hugging, touching you. We're talking about having friends come over right now. Like literally after this podcast, like you're having like a major Uber like, Twilight Zone right now

Frankie Grande:

Yeah. Oh, I had a crisis literally open my phone. Cuz I was gonna some of my friends were like, Oh, I can't my Lyft is taking too long. I was like, Don't worry, I'll send you an Uber over my phone stared at it. And I was like, Where's Uber and I clicked it. And then they were like, sign in. And I was like, sign in. Like, I have a password and like a thing. And of course it wasn't saved. So I'm like putting in every password I've ever made up in my entire life. Eventually, I figured it out. And then it was like, those buttons have changed and prices are through the roof. And I couldn't remember how to do it. And I was like, wow, this is unreal. Because I was obsessed with that app

Gabrielle Ruiz:

like it was every day. I mean even

Frankie Grande:

life was Uber

Gabrielle Ruiz:

as well as like you could compare the listings of like prices from different car comp, like Uber and Lyft I feel like you would compare and then talk about it and then it was just so like right hand like it was just your right hand moment and I still am like I don't know if I'm ready I don't know if I'm ready.

Frankie Grande:

I know cuz I that was the big thing I was like I was like I was picking up all my friends from everywhere right like I was like you're not getting a car with an Uber you know like even when we were we were doing like in early COVID when we were doing like you know get to peace with negative PCR tests and then come on over and we can have a socially distance like Kiki outside like even back then I was like you're not getting an Uber for like now I mean we're double vaccinated honey so just getting that getting that car I'll see you when you get here I'll see you when you get here. I don't gotta go pick up nobody no more. I know shelf and nomo. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Hey, you heard it here first guy.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

So just to catch everyone before we pressed record was Amen. Time said Frankie discovered it on what What are friends for just so we know,

Frankie Grande:

oh my god, my new hashtag.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

I mean, I go to my husband works at a church. I can't believe I don't even think about that.

Frankie Grande:

I just got overtaken by the Spirit and it just came out. It was so excited.

Singing:

Instafriends or Reality, yeah

Pallavi Sastry:

The post that we chose is from January 24.

Frankie Grande:

my birthday!

Pallavi Sastry:

your birthday! Yeah. And there was a cake with your face on it in front of you with your cute little dog. Yeah. What we wanted to have you on to talk about well, when you said you wanted to talk about being your own best friend and self love. We wanted to know like in you Your journey of personal growth, which you're very open about, you know, and who Frankie Grande is today, like, how much of that would you attribute to your friendships?

Frankie Grande:

I mean, I would say I would give it an enormous amount of credit. You know, I think that you know, immediately when you say you when you say that about growth and self love, you know, I, what I, you know, I identify as an addict, so, like an addict and an alcoholic. And so I'm four years sober. I will be four years sober this month, if this is airing in June, so June 16, is my four years. Yeah, really exciting stuff. And, you know, I just think about like, the, how I got to where I was, and, you know, obviously, there was an enormous amount of self work that I had to do, but could not have come anywhere near the stability that it took in order to do that work on myself, if it was not for the team of friends that surrounded me. And were there as soon as I said, Hey, I need help. There was an army of people and my family included and family is just for me, families and friends are kind of synonymous because my best friends I consider my family and my family, I've always considered my best friends. So when I, you know, asked for help, it was like, shoot, like everyone was there. And, you know, it took me a long time like to get on my own two feet so that I could start doing getting back to the Frankie's his own best friends. Like getting back to this self work that now I get to do very every morning when I wake up like and very nonchalantly you know, I get to work on myself a little bit every single day because I've had this amazing crew of people that got me to this stable place where I could take a look at myself again and not be scared of it and not be afraid of what I was gonna see when I you know, peel the layers of the onion. And now I can honestly say that like I'm back to that Frankie that had ended that's the thing. It's it was returning to the Frankie that got lost, you know that I was always the type of person that loved myself so thoroughly from the inside out in every fiber of my being. So when I stopped being that person, that's when I knew there was a problem like that was it I was like, I don't like myself anymore. In fact, I'd like to test parts of myself like that is not me, that's not who I am. And that's what those were when the red flags started going off I'm like wow. And in order for me to do what I do which is Shine bright like a Frankie when people throw shade shine brighter, you know, as long as in order for me to make other people smile, laugh and think of themselves as the most special, perfect, beautiful being on the planet. I have to have to believe that about myself. And when that when that breakdown happened, I couldn't inspire others anymore. And then I had to rework all that and finally get back to that place where like no, I'm obsessed with myself, you know, I'm saying like, I love myself so much. And it's so great. I love it and I'm back to able to love everyone else in my life to the fullest as well because I do feel like I am perfect and whole again.

Pallavi Sastry:

Well, I mean, I mean correct me if I'm wrong I think it's pretty universal that like it The first step is to admit that you you need help and like that you just to get to that sometimes it's kind of it feels like kind of chicken an egg right? It's like somebody has to tell you like what's going on with you. It's like what's going on with you tell like if you need help, please and you're like no they're and you know, depending on what it is like you might you might deny that you need it at first but then just to get to that place that like oh, people aren't my people aren't like they don't know who I am either. So then then you like have to dig deeper to be like oh, I don't know who I am. It's like so many of the layers like it tastes so much work just to even admit it. Right.

Frankie Grande:

Wait was I supposed to tell you the reality of the birthday picture?

Gabrielle Ruiz:

Tell us the reality of that photo of you and your face cake

Frankie Grande:

um my the me and my face cake you know I think it it does you know it does read exactly the way it was which was a very like simple stripped down birthday for me you know it wasn't at some rooftop restaurant it wasn't you know at Disney it wasn't like you know, renting out Dave and Busters or some other place I'm a big Yun said gamer so you know, it's my my birthday parties often resemble eight year olds birthday parties and that's perfectly fine. Yeah, it's great. Fantastic. was like just a higher quality of food. Because like there will be no like, you know, like

Pallavi Sastry:

Crme brle and you know, skee ball.

Frankie Grande:

Yeah, exactly. Exactly. Perfect. Nailed it. That's exactly that. I've heard that. But it felt right size you know, and that was the thing which I think all the holidays you know, we had just done Thanksgiving, Christmas and my birthday. And I just remember being like, this just feels right size. Which is, is it really took away a lot of the bells and whistles which I think could have distracted me in the past from the meaning of the holidays, and the meaning of my birthday. And I got to really look at like the six people that were closest to me in the world and that I had been quarantining with for the past, you know, six, oh, my God, nine months. And I got to be like, you know, like, this is what it's about, like, this is what it's about this is how these are the people that are going to continue to get old with me. And these are the people that have been around for a long time. And it just felt really right sized and very beautiful. So I know a lot of people were getting a little depressed on their birthdays in quarantine. I didn't have that experience. I was very much like, this is awesome. I also did a zoom, you know, zoom birthday thing, which was really nice to see people from all over the world that wouldn't have made it to my birthday party.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

I agree.

Frankie Grande:

And that was right before it like I have my friends from London. They're my friends from New York and my friend so I was like, Wow, that's really cool. So it felt right sized in that moment. That was the reality.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

I love that right size you're coming in with all the gifts and the memes and the quotes Frankie. I had that talk I had that experience with my baby showers like we had ours mid March I'm due may 1, and I decided to have five mini showers from regions of like New York friends, la friends Pennsylvania family Texas family and my London friends were able to come when they would never have been able to and I you know, I it was a lot of a lot of organization and some different kind of energy to like really because you know, you're you're putting all this energy on a camera, but he was absolutely lovely. I was able to share our nursery which you don't usually do at a shower it's more about like going to someone's house or going to a rooftop and having like you know rosae Yeah, we all know and yeah, and like just opening up the gifts for an hour or something and like we just didn't do that and it was delightful to change it up to re Connect be forced upon to reconnect what you were forced upon like, because you were restricted so that we like that kind of invention always comes it always happens

Frankie Grande:

we didn't have an option there was no option you know, there was no like I've chose I we chose to have this small gathering It was like No, this is what it is this is what we're doing and and so you find the beauty within it you know and you find the meaning behind it at least that was my experience you know, I just remember like Thanksgiving and Christmas and just looking around the table and being like wow, we were so distracted by the party you know like we've already have 60 people over our house for Christmas almost every year so it's like to see this that get pared down to drastic like fraction of what it usually is was and you know if people could take it depressing what we didn't we just took it as like wow this is can really focus on the fact that this holiday is about family being together eating together talking about our year and like you know and we still decorated we did the whole thing we did the presents under the tree we you know, we made it as as traditional as we could and it was beautiful. It was beautiful.

Pallavi Sastry:

I love it

Frankie Grande:

I hope we keep that I hope we keep that lb remember it next year when when everyone's vaccinated and when we're so excited that we can have 60 people again because we will be and we're gonna be ecstatic again, it's gonna be the roaring 20s and I hope I hope I'm gonna have saved here and I'm gonna hold myself to it that I remember what 2020 was like yeah, and so that I can hold on to that magic that we found you know in quarantine? Yes, family.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

No, really, Pallavi? I love diving deep into platonic love with you it has really gotten me through this pandemic.

Pallavi Sastry:

Same here Gabrielle and you know, we are happily working so hard to produce this sleigh content for all of our listeners.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

Yeah, that's why I'm so glad we joined Patreon

Pallavi Sastry:

Hey, Patreon and Patreon is the opportunity for our listeners to get exclusive perks from us all while supporting our podcast dreams.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

What kind of perks Pallavi?

Pallavi Sastry:

Let me tell you about them perks. Okay, our Patreon page has tiers to choose from so you can pick the WAFF perks that speak to you, for example, just for joining as a waff friend, patrons automatically get access to the vodcast. Gabrielle tell them what a vodcast is.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

It's the video version of our podcast where you can see us and our guests friends interviewed on camera and wait for it. It's only $2 a month.

Pallavi Sastry:

Yes, it gets better. We are also offering the option to join us for a monthly watch live show and q&a.

Pallavi Sastry:

Gabrielle Ruiz:

Slay, Slay, Slay, You know, I think what we're most proud of is that 10% of all proceeds from our Patreon page, go to charity. So not only are we focusing on great content for you You, we also get the opportunity to give back.

Pallavi Sastry:

So you're saying that all you got to do to get these perks is [email protected]/waffpodcast that's w a F F podcast. And that directly helps us keep making the show.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

That's exactly what I'm saying.

Pallavi Sastry:

Because that's what friends are for. Now back to WAFF. Yeah, I mean, we can always remind myself that hindsight is 2020.

Frankie Grande:

What a terrible year to be remembered in hindsight. But it's weird because we we talked about what sobriety and listen if I don't remember where I was, and I'm going to slip right back to that dark, dark place again. So hindsight is one of the most important tools for me to stay sober every single day. Yeah, so I'm a big fan of hindsight, big.

Pallavi Sastry:

for sure. I think we all had a dose of that, though, in 2010. I mean, and so many of the ways, like, one of the things, one of the conversations that's really like, feel this podcast for us, is, is what allyship even means, you know what I mean? And, you know, we've all redefined that in so many different ways. And it's really like, it's, it's kept us hungry to like, do better. And I think that's, that's always a good thing. That's always a good thing is to like take away walk away from some sort of difficult or uncomfortable situation putting quotes around myself, but like, you know, it's it's the lesson and the the motivation to do better. So I think a great example of that, sir.

Frankie Grande:

Thank you. I love it. I mean, I could do all I could, I should have been on that podcast, because I've got so many things to say about ally ship. I can't even tell you,

Gabrielle Ruiz:

you are Frankie but you're doing it. Anyway, every way that you do and from your social media to your personal stories. I mean, you are definitely an advocate like that shines definitely bright. We admire we admire you mucho

Pallavi Sastry:

First question, Frankie. Do you have none, one or multiple best friends?

Frankie Grande:

Multiple?

Pallavi Sastry:

Yeah, we'll come back to that as well. Because we have a gem for you. I think you'll love.

Frankie Grande:

Okay,

Pallavi Sastry:

so second question. How do you keep in touch

Frankie Grande:

mostly text messages, constantly texting with my friends. Now it's been zooming a lot actually. Like I actually make zoom dates with my friends that I would ordinarily just text with. It's actually been kind of really nice, like my high school friends that I ignored. And they'd be like, hey, you're good. Good. Great. Fine. Like now it's like let's have a zoom date on every Wednesday. And it's like cool. So yeah, it's been nice to be able to see people's faces but mostly mostly texts. Yeah.

Pallavi Sastry:

And in one word, or I'll take a hyphenate what kind of friend are you? So an example of that might be you're a problem solver. You're blunt. You're a listener?

Frankie Grande:

Yeah, I am the the ones person once described me and I always say this like is that I am the center of the spoke in the center of of a wheel. Like because I bring together people from all different walks of life. And maybe once I make them my friends then everyone becomes friends with each other. So like I'm like the unifier I guess. Like I bring people together from all different walks of life. And then all of a sudden there's they're starting to hang out with each other and this and the other thing, but like I'm like, I'm the that spoke in the center of the wheel that all the other spokes come off of

Pallavi Sastry:

love it. Yeah, love that. You're also a best friend ho. I'm a Best Friend ho. That's a nice way of saying it. The other thing because we had we had a guest earlier this season, which we love, is that when you have multiple best friends is like she's like I'm a best friend ho. I love everybody. Everybody's my best friend. Correct. collection of best friends. Okay, cool. So, next question is What would you like to do better as a friend?

Frankie Grande:

One thing that I have started to do better and COVID is that as soon as I think about somebody, I reach out to them. Because I think there's something about like just the way COVID made you reevaluate like life and like the like your own mortality and the friend your friends like so if I think about somebody, whether it's a family member or a friend like I immediately reached out to them instead of being like, Huh, I should call them at some point down the road. I immediately like send a text Hey, how are you doing? So but I think I can be better about that. And that's the thing I think I can be better about like actually reaching out often I wait to be reached out to but I can do better at being the richer outer.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

I love that.

Pallavi Sastry:

I think we can all do that.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

I think we can all do that for sure. And finally our iconic question that you have already sung for us. Frankie, What are friends for?

Frankie Grande:

Oh, you want me to sing it?

Gabrielle Ruiz:

your answer. I mean, just go for it

Frankie Grande:

What are friends for friends are there to I mean, they completely they complete me and like my god was Jer Mcguire my Tom Cruise? Friends are there to tell you the truth. Friends are there to let you know when there are things about your in your life that you can improve or do differently. Friends are there to hold your hand friends are there to give you advice. And friends are there to love and accept your love unconditionally. That's how I think my friends know. But I think the truth is a big one. Like, I don't want friends that aren't gonna tell me the truth, then and then our friends. So tell me the truth. Tell me the truth.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

Amen.

Pallavi Sastry:

I also want to validate you on that though, because you provide an environment for them where they can be honest with you. And that's a

Frankie Grande:

You said that earlier today about creating a safe environment for someone to be able to express the way that they feel you know, you're talking about like being exhausted and not feeling like you need to push yourself any further because you have that kind of safe space. And yes, please everyone in your life, like encourage your friends to be like, I don't I can't come over tonight, actually, because I am exhausted. And I had this kind of week and I know we had plans but like can we please reschedule because X, Y and Z because you have to put yourself first in almost every single situation like you if you don't put yourself first then you're not going to be able to be a good friend then you're gonna have a shitty hangout you're gonna like XYZ whatever it is. So, you know put the oxygen mask on yourself first before you put on your best friend.

Gabrielle Ruiz:

Amen times 10 Amen times 10

Pallavi Sastry:

That's so awesome. All Patreon subscribers are gonna see that gem

Gabrielle Ruiz:
