Former Secretary of State and first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton is out with a new Apple TV+ show called “Gutsy” in which she travels the country to bring attention to so-called “gutsy” women.
A trailer of the show dropped Wednesday on YouTube, where it currently boasts only a couple hundred likes despite having tens of thousands of views. The dislikes are not displayed. In addition, the comments section has been disabled.
Watch the trailer below:
While there are plenty of interesting tidbits in the trailer, what’s piqued everybody’s attention is remarks made in it by Clinton concerning her marriage to former President Bill Clinton. As everybody knows by now, her husband cheated on her while in office. Literally.
“In November 1995, [Bill] Clinton began an affair with Monica Lewinsky, a 21-year-old unpaid intern. Over the course of a year and a half, the president and Lewinsky had nearly a dozen sexual encounters in the White House,” according to the History network.
“In April 1996, Lewinsky was transferred to the Pentagon. That summer, she first confided in Pentagon co-worker Linda Tripp about her sexual relationship with the president. In 1997, with the relationship over, Tripp began secretly to record conversations with Lewinsky, in which Lewinsky gave Tripp details about the affair.”
All this eventually culminated in Clinton’s husband being impeached by the U.S. House on Dec. 19th, 1998. Her husband has also faced numerous sexual harassment/assault allegations from a myriad of women, including Paula Jones and Juanita Broaddrick.
In the trailer, one of the women Clinton profiles, Rev. Whittney Ijanaten, is seen speaking with her about her marriage.
“You have a marriage that has been on public display since the beginning. You said the gutsiest thing you ever did was stay in your marriage,” Ijanaten says as Clinton nods in approval.
Clinton then replies, “That doesn’t mean that’s right for everybody.”
The trailer then cuts away to another scene.
Because the trailer cuts away, it’s not clear what Clinton says next.
However, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ijanaten offered a few more details about her conversation with the former first lady.
“It was really nice to be human with someone who has just been, like, supernatural,” she told the outlet.
“It wasn’t Rev. Whittney to Secretary Clinton, it was woman to woman — I want to know how was it that you were able to stay? I was very grateful for the connection, for what they saw in me and how our conversation, once it got together, could be some magic,” she added.
The trailer also shows Clinton speaking with the likes of explicit rapper Megan Thee Stallion, pro-criminal socialite Kim Kardashian, primatologist Jane Goodall, and actresses Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson.
The show “Gutsy” was originally announced by Apple in 2020.
“Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea Clinton are getting into business with Apple. The duo are set to host and executive produce a docuseries called ‘Gutsy Women,’ which has been handed a straight-to-series order at Apple TV Plus,” Variety magazine reported at the time.
“Inspired by their book ‘The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience,’ the series will spotlight a diverse cast of trailblazing women. It will see the Clintons set out on a quest to answer the question: what exactly does it take to be a Gutsy Woman?”
Interestingly, Clinton is now facing a bit of backlash from her own doting fans over her choice to profile certain women like Kardashian, who catapulted to fame 15 years ago thanks to a sex tape, and Stallion, who sings extremely filthy rap lyrics.

I’ll watch all the episodes except the Kardashian one. Not at all interested in her or what she has to say but the other women should be interesting.

Gross. What a disservice to the rest of the panel to include kim kardashiaan. I make it a point to avoid anything featuring a kardashian. Hard pass.

Please don’t put Kim Kardashian on a pedestal 😳 just flat out ask her for her money, but to make her an example for all the little girls out there I find it be highly irresponsible in this day and age. #dobetter

These people should NOT have their names mentioned in the same sentence as
Jane Goodall and Gloria Steinem
Jane Goodall has given her entire life to the protection of wildlife and educating others!
Gloria Steinem is a treasure & hero to women!

Based on her own fans’ complaints, it seems “Gutsy” is slated to perform just as poorly as the book it was named after.
“The Book of Gutsy Women” sold under 30,000 copies in its first week, according to Publishers Weekly. Conversely, former President Donald Trump’s “Our Journey Together” coffee table book sold 70,000 in its first week.
“In just the first day, the coffee table-style book of 300 photos and handwritten captions describing his four impactful years in office made $1 million, and Barnes and Noble has declared it one of their bestsellers,” the Washington Examiner reported in December.
