In the real world, with cars and houses and time, there lived two bohemian housewives, with deep midwestern roots. Then one day, they were airlifted and dropped in the middle of Crown Heights, Brooklyn and Cookeville, Tennessee. These are their stories of friendship, magic and dismantling the patriarchy from an underground bunker slumber party. Please note: RHB does not sell out. We never edit. We always have fun. Friendship first.
