Cursed

EPISODE 16: You can Curse Anything, Especially Dolls

This is more of a medium-sode but whatever, right? There are a lot of cursed things out there, people. 

Dolls are creepy AF. Apparently so are giant diamonds. Kelly will take all the cursed diamonds off your hands (but none of your haunted dolls! Send those to Sarah).

EPISODE 15: The Curse of Bathsheba Ruggles

Has Kelly been cursed by her murderous ancestor, Bathsheba? And if so did her over the top witch ceremony lift the curse for her and all the Ruggles women? For once we both agree – definitely real! Also, we spill the tea on epigenetics!
