Description

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!

Ep. 20 Daniella Clarke is a true ride or die chick!
01:48:12

Daniella Clarke is a fashion designer, TV and podcast host, Rock ‘n’ Roll wife, amazing Mom and my ride or die girlfriend.
In this episode of Ask Jillian we discuss our 20yr+ friendship, how it started over a pair of jeans, the iconic Frankie B.’s that Daniella named after her daughter.
I believed in Daniella’s talent the minute I met her. Her sense of style was so original and sexy! I have always supported women entrepreneurs, Daniella’s passion was contagious and I became a fan and friend.
Daniella tells the story of how she met her husband Rock ‘n’ Roll musician Gilby Clarke on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame and once they met she never went home.
Their marriage is inspirational, they have been together for 30+yrs and are still totally into each other … what is their secret?!?
We also talk about her touring with her husband and Guns N’ Roses, being in their legendary November Rain video, hosting with Sharon Osbourne on Rock of Love: Charm School. Also how her very cool daughter Frankie is following in her Dad's footsteps as a badass rock chick, styled by her Mom, with her band Frankie and the Studs.
We’ve always been there for each other personally and professionally, she’s my sister from another mister!

Ep. 19 Let's talk about traveling Highs and Lows
00:47:31

In this episode of Ask Jillian we talk about traveling. My wilder days on girls trips, the crazy night Liz, Lisa and I had in Vegas for a charity event. How we got to see Stevie Nicks perform and barely made the flight home. We didn’t understand “wheels up” means they’ll leave without you! My NY trips for Howard Stern, partying with Robin and Ralph until the wee hours. Another time I was preggo and no one knew, but Howard and crew kept trying to get me to ride the sybian! That would never happen, pregnant or not! I couldn't party on that trip but my girlfriends did without me. How traveling with some friends is more fun than with others, I’m not uptight and when I'm on vacation I don’t want everything scheduled. Also how traveling with kids has its challenges. Nathan Fillion once saved me when Rocco was kinda out of control on a flight. Got to love a fellow Canadian!

Scott “Movie” Mantz is a Film Critic, Host, Emmy-Nominated Producer, Trekker and a La La Lander 4 Life!
In this episode of Ask Jillian we discuss our love of movies, some of our all time favorites and how we became film fanatics.

Scott’s obsession with Star Trek began his critic career through a convention and meeting Will Shatner, he is a huge fan!
Scott championed the movie La La Land, and shares the story of how he passionately promoted it to help build its audience. He watched first hand its ride to the Oscars and the historical mix up of the Best Picture announcement. Scott’s behind the scenes stories are great. His reviews are fun, fair, educational, enthusiastic and insightful. He is truly the movie man!

Ep. 17 Let's talk about single parenting
00:40:19

In this episode of Ask Jillian we talk about being a single parent, its challenges and rewards.
My kids were 4 and half and not yet 3 when I got divorced, it’s been 7yrs since then of non-stop doing it myself. Being a single parent can look so many ways, its demands never end even if you have support or help. Liz also shares the story of her mother being a widow with 7 kids, you can have no choice. During the toughest times battling my breast cancer, my kids were my biggest cheerleaders but being Mom didn’t stop. I had to keep going. Ruby and Rocco are and will always be my reason to carry on!

Ep. 16 Housewives of True Crime talk serial killers - I’m a true fan!
00:57:15

Tabitha and Gretchen are the fantastic podcasters from Housewives of True Crime and they talk with me about serial killers in this episode. I’m a true fan of theirs!
They share my obsession with true crime and serial killers, though Liz does not - she is a scaredy cat! We talk about the Ken and Barbie killers, real life monsters who committed horrible crimes in my hometown in Canada when I was growing up. I’ve followed the story ever since because justice wasn’t served in my opinion. Tabitha and Gretchen did great research and we did a deep dive into all the details, including how one of the killers is walking free today! We also talk about other cases, serial killers and how true crime podcasts are (pun intended) killing it!

Ep. 15 Loren Ruch was the BEST prom date I ever had!
01:20:05

Loren Ruch is an extraordinary producer for HGTV, fantastic host and most importantly one of my best friends! In this episode we talk about how we met in our early days at FOX Good Day LA, we had some incredible times! The stories of traveling together on our trips to Vegas first as Pamela Anderson's guest then to see Celine Dion, and how I reluctantly became a huge fan! Loren took me as his date to his High School Reunion that we turned into our own personal prom. Loren reminded me of a crazy drunk speech I gave at his wedding which I don’t recall at all but I do remember the hot braless dress I wore! Loren has worked on some fantastic HGTV projects, most recently the iconic Brady Bunch House in “A Very Brady Renovation” which was amazing! Also Liz, Loren and I reminisce about our karaoke history, it’s mostly embarrassing!

Ep. 13 Let's talk about depression
00:57:31

In this episode of Ask Jillian, Liz and I talk about depression and anxiety, how it has affected our lives in different ways. I have felt hard hit by it these last few years due to divorce, grief and cancer. But being a single parent, I so often have to put on a brave face, get up and keep going. Since my cancer diagnosis, in moments of loneliness and despair, it has been my online social media family that has lifted me up sharing your amazing stories and inspired me to have hope that it will get better. I know I am not alone, depression and anxiety affects millions of us. It is often not diagnosed, misdiagnosed or there is a shame associated with it that keeps someone from seeking help. Dealing with mental health should be considered brave. It takes incredible strength to admit you need help. I am not afraid or ashamed to talk about my depression anymore and ask for help. It's my only way out, to talk about it and take it head (that’s a pun) on!

Michael McDonald is an actor, director, writer, producer, stand-up comic and he’s hilarious! He was one of the stars of the comedy show MADtv. Who could forget the genius of Stuart Larkin and so many other classic characters he created? MADtv is where we met when I was in a sketch called Prehistoric Glamazon Huntress: A.D., I think it was typecasting but I nailed it anyway! We discuss his start in Hollywood at The Groundlings, being Melissa McCarthy’s teacher, his roots in horror films with Roger Corman and scene-stealing abilities in Spy and Ghostbusters. Michael was the perfect guest with stories about Kathy Griffin, comedy and crime. He even surprises me with a Mary Kay Letourneau connection.

00:43:10

Liz and I recap our Kate del Castillo and Jessica Maldonado episode because honestly I barely remember it due to Kate’s delicious Honor tequila.

01:12:32

Kate del Castillo is an actress, telenovela royalty from her iconic role in La Reina del Sur and Netflix's Ingobernable and a human rights activist. Kate is currently starring In Bad Boys 3 and she is truly badass herself! Jessica Maldonado is Kate’s ride-or-die friend. She was a correspondent for El Gordo y La Flaca and is Kate’s producing and podcast partner. Kate and I met years ago at the Celebrity Toyota Grand Prix and became fast friends … I did a racing pun! We have been through a lot together over the years with the El Chapo scandal, my divorce and fun parties at her house with amazing Mariachi’s. BUT I’m not sure how clear any of that is in this podcast because Kate brought her Honor Tequila and we all had some. It got a bit off track … another racing pun! I don’t think we ever finished one story! So maybe pour yourself a shot of Honor Tequila while listening because it's a wild one!
