It’s an A- to Z-List Edition of ‘The Mix’!

Well, sort of.

What we really mean (now that we – ha-ha – have your attention) is this: While more than a few of the guests in tonight’s lineup are firmly planted on the A-list, at least one is way over on the other side of the spectrum.

But guess what? We’re not going to tell you which celeb we’re brand- ing bottom-of-the-barrel; to find out, you’ve have to tune in. And when you do, you’ll also learn the answers such all-important questions as:

—Where Alfred Hitchcock first happened upon Tippi Hedren, and why he thought the then-fashion model – who had zero film roles to her credit – would be perfect for the lead in The Birds.

—Why no one would be crazy enough to give The Naked Cowboy a wedgie.

“Watch out! I’m gonna be the next Halle Berry,” Jessica tells us.

“Watch out! I’m gonna be the next Halle Berry,” Jessica tells us.

—How Chuck Norris failed mis- erably at age 34 – only to begin his upward ascent toward superstar- dom just a few weeks later.

—What makes Jessica Rich (left) – a.k.a. Rabbit from VH1’s The Real Chance of Love – think she’s “all that.”

—Why Amy “The Long Island Lolita” Fisher plugs her new triple-X website – then moments later proclaims, “I’m not a porn star!”

—Which song Sundays Sauce Pot host Marty “The Paisan” asks Franco Corso to sing live on the air – only to have the Latin heartthrob refuse.

—Why tough-guy Chazz Palminteri absolutely adores indy filmmakers.

So don’t miss The Mix, hosted by everyone’s favorite pod jockey, Shaun Daily, tonight – and every Monday – at 9 p.m. ET.

Chuck Norris: America’s on the Road to Ruin!

Walker, Texas Ranger is mad as hell at the state of our economy.

The good news is, he’s got a plan to set it straight.

In an interview today with BEST Business Radio – a new show focusing on entrepreneurship for small businesses – Chuck Norris tells host Doug Huggins that the U.S. is on the verge of becoming a Third-World nation.

“Anything I start, I will finish,” Chuck tells us.

“Anything I start, I WILL finish,” Chuck tells us.

“Our dollar had dropped 46 percent in the past 10 years. Eventually we’ll be like Mexico – where it’ll take a billion dollars to buy a loaf of bread.”

The action hero, who recently penned Black Belt Patriotism: How to Reawaken America, is also up in arms about Uncle Sam’s coddling of our mismanaged financial industry.

“[Insurance giant] AIG is a prime example. We give them billions of dollars, and the first thing they do is go spend $440,000 on a retreat! I was totally against this bailout,” he says.

“We give out $700 billion.  But the thing is, they’re not going to do much with it,” he continues.  “They’re going to be greedy and keep it and use it for their own selfish purposes.”

Moments later, however, the action hero steps up with an action plan.

“The only way to get back on the road to recovery is for the U.S. to go strictly to a consumptive tax,” he says. “So if you can afford to buy something, you buy it.  If you can’t afford to buy something, you wait until you have the money to buy it.”blackbelt-patriotism1

Chuck also discusses how he got a hard lesson in entre- preneurship years ago when he sold his martial-arts academy to a company that promised to grow the chain from three to 1,000 schools – only to see it  go bust two year later.

But that loss, at 34 years old, forced him to return to giving private classes, which led Steve McQueen to his door – who in turn prompted Chuck to take up acting.

And the rest, as they say, is (cinematic) history.
