‘Dave’ Actor Taylor Misiak Dishes About Bravo’s ‘Real Housewives’ and Other Reality TV Stars on Her Podcast
Most people know Taylor Misiak as Dave “Lil Dicky” Burd’s on-screen girlfriend in the FX series Dave. But the actor is also the host of a hilarious reality TV podcast. Find out what Misiak’s podcast Table Flipping is all about and where you can stream episodes.
‘Dave’ FX cast features Taylor Misiak
Misiak’s friendship with Burd goes back to her appearance in the music video for his song “Pillow Talking.” When Burd’s FX series Dave premiered, many viewers recognized Misiak as his on-screen girlfriend Ally.
In Dave’s first season, Ally and Dave Burd experience intimacy issues as Dave struggles with his mangled manhood. But being the gentle and loving school teacher she is, Ally accepts Dave for all of his flaws — well, almost all of them.
By the end of season 1, Ally and Dave hit a roadblock in their relationship. Ultimately, they break up because Dave can’t prioritize his relationship with Ally over fame.
Sadly, Misiak’s role in the FX series is rooted in truth. As Genius.com reported, Burd and his ex broke up because he wanted to relocate to California for his music career — she didn’t want to uproot her life to move with him.
Shortly after his 2015 album Professional Rapper came out, Burd talked about the breakup in a Reddit AMA. “I knew that I had to pursue my dreams before anything,” Burd explains.
Going for music wasn’t something that I regret and it wasn’t something that I debated really. Me and Molly aren’t going to get married at this point, but even if it was my absolute soul mate, I don’t think I would’ve been able to put her in front of me accomplishing my dreams.
Reality TV stars are the focus of the ‘Table Flipping’ podcast
From Sister Wives to the many Real Housewives franchises, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and even MTV reality shows like Laguna Beach, Misiak and her co-host Alyssa Litman cover it all on the Table Flipping podcast.
As the podcast describes, “the messy women of reality television have made us feel seen!” Table Flipping is about unpacking the way these women come across on television. Each week, Misiak and Litman celebrate the reality TV characters fans know and love, their fashion choices, and their iconic blowups.
Special guests often join Misiak and Litman to provide listeners with a deeper dive into their favorite reality shows. Along the way, personal stories and fantasies about behaving as freely as the women of reality TV come up, too.
