Portnoy recently talked about on The Dave Portnoy show about how it’s tough to find content. Well now he’s deciding to take a shot on Castellani.
Also on the Dave Portnoy show, Portnoy mentioned how it’s not likely that Alex Cooper will be back with Barstool. Saying that she has grown into her own superstardom where the money is out of reach for Barstool.
Obviously news that Portnoy doesn’t like as he constantly promotes Call Her Daddy on podcasts, talking about how well that Alex does. But that might be coming to an end. Portnoy did add that even if they don’t get a deal done that it probably won’t be the last time that they work with Cooper. So who knows what the future is with that.
