It’s a Bittersweet Edition of ‘The Mix’

And what exactly do we mean by “bittersweet”?

As much pleasure as it would give us to tell you, we can’t.

Because, well, we’re not ex- actly sure ourselves.

But by the time the show rolls around, we promise we’ll have it (as the British say) sussed.

Until then, what we can tell you is, tonight’s show answers such all-important questions as:

—Why America’s favorite mom, Florence Henderson, is more than willing to “do raunchy stuff.”

—Which iconic edifice Tucker Carlson thinks should be re- named “The Staples House.”

—How Tonight show announc- er  John Melendez (above) got to look like Howie Mandel and Dr. Phil.

—What former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey was doing at a Hannah Montana concert (or so he says).

—Why Glam God winner Indashio, not wanting to name-drop, re- fuses to talk about the celeb- rities he has styled – though moments later tells us he has styled Lil’ Kim, Kim Kardashian, Tyra Banks, Kathy Lee Gifford and other lovely ladies.

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

Backstage Security to Jim McGreevey: No Hannah Montana for You!

Did former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey try to bribe his way backstage at a Hannah Montana concert?

Yes, says WZAP Radio host Zachary Sang, who happened upon the disgraced pol at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., last year – and whose tale is recounted in the New York Post‘s Page Six gossip column today.

“I was at a Hannah Montana concert and he was trying to bribe the security guard to let him get [backstage],” the 15-year-old student at Wayne Valley High School in nearby Wayne, N.J. – tells Dr. Blogstein’s Radio Happy Hour host Dr. Blogstein on this week’s edition of the show.

“They wouldn’t let him in, though – they didn’t,” continues Zach. “I carry my tape recorder with me everywhere I go where I think people are going to be around.  So when he was done talking to the security guard by the door, I kind of inched my way in, put my record- er in his face and started asking him questions.

“I asked him why he was at a Hannah Montana concert and he just said that his daughter was there somewhere. But I didn’t see his daughter around anywhere,” adds Zach, an aspiring journalist who documented the interview on tape and later wrote about it in his school newspaper.

Jim, whose 2006 memoir, The Confession, chronicles the rise and falls of his political career, resigned from office in 2004 after admitting he had “engaged in an adult consensual affair with another man.”
