It’s A Free ‘N’ Easy Edition of ‘The Mix’

With Memorial Day just around the corner, The Daily Mix is getting a jump on the laid-back vibe that invariably drifts in with the warm weather.

That means our celebrity guests are feeling freer and easier this week, in turn revealing fascinating snippets from their lives and careers.

You’ll learn, for instance:

“As entertaining as it was, I’m glad that it did serve some purpose for our community as well,” Jasmine (above) tells us of “A Different World.”

“As entertaining as it was, I’m glad that it served some purpose for our community as well,” Jasmine (above) tells us of “A Different World.”

—Why original GEICO cavemen John Lehr feels free enough to recount a true story that begins, “So I find myself out in L.A. in this moil’s office in his bathroom with my pants around my ankles.”

—Why Jasmine Guy is feeling freer and easier than ever about being typecast as Whitley Gilbert in A Different World.

—Why rock legend Rick Derringer takes a free ‘n’ easy approach to the lyrics to his signature song, Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo, and instead of signing the line “Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo,” sings “Read the Word and live by it too.”

—Why one BlogTalkRadio caller thinks VH1 funnyman Hal Sparks is so free and easy with his virtue that, vis-à-vis co-stars Wynona Judd and Tobey Maguire, she dares ask, “Did you hit that?”

—Why Ricki Lake believes the freer method of home childbirth is much easier on the mother in the long run.

—Why Miss America chief Sam Haskell tells us his pageant would take a far freer and easier approach to Carrie Prejean’s comments on gay nups than Donald Trump’s Miss USA pageant did.

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