Trisha Storms Out Again
On December 10th, 2020, episode 13 of Frenemies was uploaded, titled, “Trisha Quits the Podcast & Storms Out – Frenemies #13.” Partway through the episode, Trisha mentions Ethan’s wife Hila’s family in a negative way, resulting in Ethan telling his producer to cut that part of the conversation from the episode, as Hila allegedly previously requested off-camera that her family not be mentioned in the show. This causes Trisha to have a breakdown, cursing out Hila and storming off the show after Ethan suggests she leave, claiming to quit. The incident was isolated and uploaded to the H3 Podcast Highlights channel on December 11th, 2020 (shown below).
The incident prompted demands for Trisha to apologize to Ethan and Hila from fans of the show. On December 11th, Trisha uploaded a video responding to the situation on her channel, in which she apologizes for certain things but doubles down on others (shown below). The video garnered over 700,000 views in a month, and holds a negative like to dislike ratio of 15,000 likes to 20,000 dislikes as of January 13th, 2021.
Trisha uploaded two more videos responding to the argument, one on the 11th (shown below, left) and one on the 12th (shown below, right) still refusing to fully apologize.
On December 11th, Ethan and Hila responded to Trisha’s first video live on the H3 Podcast. On December 12th and 13th, two clips of them responding were uploaded to the H3 Podcast Highlights channel (shown below, left and right). In the videos they question the authenticity of Trisha’s apology and express sadness about the situation, and admit they’re not sure if Frenemies will go on.
On December 16th, the 14th episode of Frenemies was uploaded, again featuring Dr. Drew as a sort of counselor to Ethan and Trisha (shown below). In the episode Trisha and Ethan manage to make up and further discuss how to keep the show going considering Trisha’s BPD, as well as take personality tests, revealing Trisha to have highly narcissistic tendencies. The episode gained over 1.9 million views in under a month.
