Alexandra Cooper has been snacking on cheddar pretzels in her bikini. The “Call Your Daddy” podcast host – followed by 1.2 million on Instagram – updated her account to wrap up the weekend with a photo-heavy batch of images flying the flag for swimwear, snacking, sunshine, and lockdown yesterday. The latter, you’ll be aware of if you listen to the popular podcast, with Alexandra delivering it from her parents’ basement. Barstool Sports’ hard-hitting blonde has been fronting media outlets over May and June over a contract feud with former co-host Sofia Franklyn – turns out Alexandra was earning way more, with Barstool boss Dave Portnoy also getting involved.

They showed Cooper, 26, in athleisurewear-come-bombshell mode and admitting that the “neighbors were watching” as she lounged about on a green lawn and under blue skies. The sex-specialist whose listeners shot up from 12,000 to 2 million was seen in a pastel orange bikini top and light gray sweatpants as she struck a series of candid poses – the platinum-blonde hair was down as Cooper caught rays, also seen enjoying a bag of cheddar cheese pretzels, and the fans spotted it.
With 138,000 likes left in an hour, it looks like the post went down a hit – and the snacks. A caption from Cooper read: “Tried to have some me photo shoot time, then realized neighbors were watching ?? TIME TO GO BACK TO NEW YORK .” As to the comments, it took under 30 minutes for the pretzels to trump the podcast host herself – “Bruh where do they sell those cheddar pretzels,” a fan wrote, quickly racking up likes. If you care, you can grab them at Safeway. More photos, a video, and Alex’s words below.
Alexandra, who recently announced “Call Her Daddy” merch dropping, has opened up on the feud with former co-host and roommate Sofia. It came amid a public contract negotiation with Barstool Sports that also saw owner Dave slam the girls for reportedly demanding $1 million each. Right now, the earnings are reported to be $75,000, plus bonuses. “I think this where Barstool and I are pretty frustrated,” Cooper said at the end of May. “Sofia did not take the deal and when it got held up and there were no more points coming from her side, we had to move forward without her. That’s all it is.”
Alexandra continued: “You know, you have a 50-50 deal in front of you in a partnership that’s not 50-50—genuinely, I’m like, ‘How do you not take that?’ Like, I literally started to feeling crazy…So, I think that’s important to emphasize and I want to make it very clear that it seemed to me in my opinion—Sofia’s 50-50 was about money. Not labor.” The 2018-launched podcast recently took a brief intro break to back Black Lives Matter – Alexandra herself said she acknowledged it would feel jarring to her listeners to be hearing political talk. She then told anyone who’s racist to unfollow her.
