Hi, it’s Jillian Barberie and this is my podcast Ask Jillian. You might know me from Good Day LA or FOX NFL on Sunday, but I’m pretty sure it was Sharknado 4 where I was eaten alive! For years I was the one asking the questions on TV shows, radio interviews and Red Carpets but I’ve realized at this point in my life I’m the one that needs a lot of questions answered. I mean these last few years have been a doozy, at times I haven’t had a clue which way to go except simply forward. So I want to start on a journey with all of you. This is about having open and deep discussions with old friends and new ones about their lives, getting or even giving advice and having some laughs together. There will be celebs, experts in various fields and other very interesting characters from my life, we’re going to cover it all! I’ve never been known for playing it safe and I’m not starting now, no subject is off limits! Career. Marriage. Divorce.
Single Mom. Kids. Boyfriends (yeah I’ve got stories of some famous men). Adoption. Molestation. Finding my birth family. Makeup. Fashion. Design. Sex. Friendships. Cancer. My Truth! So let’s get started. Ask Jillian!

    Ruby & Rocco say the darndest things!

    Ruby & Rocco say the darndest things!

    Ruby and Rocco are my amazing children! Ruby is my beautiful, kind, fun loving, tik tok watching, makeup loving daughter. Rocco is my future gaming champ, nerf warrior, lego architect, super sweet, high energy son. They are my loves, both of them are so smart, funny and if I do say so very cute. They have my whole heart.
    In this episode of Ask Jillian, we talk about everything going on in their lives. What they think about school and how it's changed with quarantine. What they're afraid of, which is surprisingly different from my extremely justified fear of bears and great white sharks! How they feel about parenting styles and my mommy discipline, or lack thereof. As well as the tough events we’ve been through like the divorce and cancer which was scarier for them than I thought.
    What Ruby and Rocco shared definitely surprised me a couple of times but their strength didn’t. They’re my angels!

    Let’s talk about Binge Watching SPOILER ALERTS!!!!

    Let’s talk about Binge Watching SPOILER ALERTS!!!!

    In this episode of Ask Jillian we talk about binge watching. It's one of my favorite things to blast through an entire series! And one of my least favorite is when it stops saying NEXT EPISODE! It's such a different experience than how watching TV used to be but now it's so tough when I have to wait for a new episode or season. I love getting recommendations for shows I haven't seen so I can dive in to something new. Usually I'm fitting it into the schedule when the kids aren't around, and staying up way too late, though sometimes they catch me and get tired of hearing the same theme song over and over. It's a fun conversation with Liz about our favorite shows and some times we might have binge watched a little too much!

    DaveO knows everybody!

    DaveO knows everybody!

    Dave “DaveO” Osokow is an entrepreneur, talent connector, podcaster, host, frequent wedding officiant and diehard Philly sports fan. Fly, Eagles, Fly! He is a total Hollywood insider and is one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet!
    In this episode of Ask Jillian, we talk about how he met Liz pulling together a last minute shoot the day before Thanksgiving (to her annoyance) while she was trying to get ready for 30 people at her house for dinner the next day! DaveO tells us how he got his start in Los Angeles working at night clubs and made friends with everyone. Liz and I are pretty sure there was a time we might have crossed paths with DaveO on a crazy night out at Forty Deuce in Hollywood, where I made out with Jenna Jameson after an award show! DaveO is a passionate fan of all Philly sports and when the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl it got pretty emotional, he was right on the sidelines crying! We all discuss relationships, how difficult dating apps can be and what we have learned from them, which is not much.
    DaveO is one of the most genuine and fun people in Hollywood, he’s always willing to make it work with a great attitude!

    Let's talk about Summer Vacations

    Let's talk about Summer Vacations

    In this episode of Ask Jillian we talk about summer vacations with the family. Every summer was spent at my parents' cabin on a beautiful lake near Perry Sound in Ontario, Canada. It was fantastic for us growing up and I loved being able to bring my own kids there to make new memories. Though one not so great memory of the cabin is when I wandered off as a toddler for hours! It definitely scared everyone almost as much as when a bear knocked on the door! On the lake we would go boating on the SS Muriel (I crashed it once), fishing, water skiing and swimming. They were the best times! When I was a kid my parents took us on road trips. I would protest if it involved a location were a recent murder had happened, to everyone’s dismay I knew all about them at an early age. I never thought I was a cruise person but Disney changed my mind, bon voyage! The Disney Dream Ship cruises with my kids to the Bahamas and Vancouver were truly magical! Liz also talks about her family Summer trips and her unique camp experiences.
    So many great trips and such incredible memories! Can’t wait to take adventures again!
