A [Sustained laughter] I have no idea. I don’t think they’d book me. It’s going to be something when he signs off for real this time.


Q Would you rather not have Howard Stern ask such personal questions?

A I don’t care. I’ll talk to Howard Stern about anything. I listen to him every day. I love him. When you go on his show, you kind of have to be an open book.


Q In your book “Man Up,” you said you learned how to swear like a trucker. String together a few for me. I want to judge how convincing you sound, because I don’t believe you talk like that.

A I do talk like that. I’ve earned the right to talk like that. I learned from my father how to swear RIGHT and how to string it together for optimum effect/affect. I use it like karate. I bring it out when it’s needed.


Q What makes you swear like a trucker?

A A good joke.


Q ‘Hello, Ross’ is what fans say to you, but what do you say when you meet Diana Ross?

A Oh my God, I would love to meet Diana Ross. I’d say, ‘Hello, Miss Ross if you’re nasty.’ It’s a Janet Jackson [reference].


Interviews are edited. C.J. can be contacted at and seen on Fox 9’s “Buzz.”
