A.J. Benza is a writer, podcaster, actor, author, family man and incredible TV host. His show on E! Mysteries and Scandals was a great take on Hollywood’s darker side. Now he continues telling those crazy stories on his podcast Fame Is A Bitch.
In this episode of Ask Jillian we discuss how we met on my show The Test and how we’ve always got along great because we both love stories about old Hollywood and Howard Stern! A.J. has been on Howard’s show a ton and even guest hosted, though he’s also got himself into a fair bit of trouble. We talk about his battles with Stuttering John and the feud with Donald Trump that got him kicked off the show.
He tells us about growing up in New York, his time in the club scene, his rise as a gossip columnist and a crazy story about Mariah Carey’s wedding to Tommy Mottola.
A.J. and I have seen a lot in Hollywood and had a lot to talk about and there were quite a few surprises even for me!
