Director Olivia Wilde famously has a "no-a--hole" policy when it comes to working with other celebs. Glennon Doyle, host of the popular We Can Do Hard Things podcast, enforced one of her own recently, and it has set off a guessing game about which guest she booted from her show, writes Kady Ruth Ashcraft at Jezebel. As Doyle, wife Abby Wambach, and sister Amanda Doyle explain in the podcast and in this teaser video, a female guest was being prepped by a producer before appearing on the show when her husband began raising his voice at a podcast team member.

When this got relayed to podcasting trio, they told the guest the interview was off, and the guest reportedly scoffed at the decision and suggested they were being too sensitive. On the show, the hosts "passionately discuss the importance of boundaries and make it known that mistreatment of their employees is a line they do not let people cross," writes Ashcraft, who adds that show fans have since become a little obsessed with trying to figure out who the offending guest was. Reddit threads are now devoted to the cause, with Glennon Doyle shooting down some common guesses such as Gwen Stefani/Blake Shelton, Mila Kunis/Ashton Kutcher, and Kristen Bell/Dax Shepard.
