Former cast members[edit]

Kristin Chirico[edit]

Chirico graduated from the Richmond, The American International University in London and Northwestern University. In the popular Ladylike video, "We Took A DNA Test," Kristin underwent a genealogical DNA test, provided by the company 23andMe, and learned she was predominantly of white (79.5%) and Indigenous American (13.9%) ancestry, something she'd been previously unaware of as her mother was adopted.[3] Chirico is married to Brian Hubble and the two both identify as members of the LGBT community, with Chirico identifying as bisexual and Hubble as non-binary.[5] In December 2020, she, along with former Ladylike cast member Jen Ruggirello, released a video on on their collaborative YouTube channel, The Kitchen & Jorn Show, titled "Why We Left BuzzFeed," in which Chirico detailed an 18-month struggle with suicidal ideation, which she attributed to psychological manipulation tactics employed by upper management at BuzzFeed.[6][7]

Devin Lytle[edit]

Lytle revealed in a March 2020 video on her YouTube Channel, titled "let's talk about buzzfeed," she revealed that she'd left the company on November 21, 2019, after five years, to accept a job offer with NBC digital labs.[8] She confirmed in the video that she and her Ladylike cast members are still friends. During her time at BuzzFeed, Lytle openly discussed being a sexual assault survivor and having an eating disorder.
