Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend

Is it rude to not tie your garbage bag before tossing it in the can? This was the genesis of a disagreement in the House of Greg so we moved said conflict to the show. We also did an epic Easter-themed Snack Chat with goodies Jenna and Al brought back from Utah, discussed buffets and Souplantation, discussed the word "plantation" and talked about Alison and Greg's upcoming TV shoot. Plus drug and injection chat in The Biological Clock, Dustin's wedding, Star Wars and Game of Thrones. And we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone and talked about an adoptable dog named Elmo.

Do I give the kind of hugs that could best be described as non-committal and tentative? I think of myself as a distributor of warm snuggly hugs however the feedback I've received of late would suggest otherwise. We delved into this gritty topic along with a discussion of a sex dream involving Jimmy Pardo, my recent consecutive social engagements, a backhanded insult which isn't a thing but it was, Phil Rosenthal's food and travel show, Jenna's tour de force as a cat from the South, St. Patrick's Day, Al getting a tweet from LL Cool J and so much more. We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone and talked about an adoptable dog named Leonna.

Comedian and author Greg Behrendt stopped by Dining Room Studios to talk about all sorts of things including the complicated effect being a consultant on Sex and The City had on his life and career and the way he spun out when fans of the book and cultural phenomenon he co-authored, He's Just Not That Into You, began showing up in droves at his comedy shows. Women wanted to hear him do a "TED talk about relationships" but he was there to do standup. We also discussed his decision to host  a daytime talk show, getting diagnosed with cancer while on tour in Australia, fatherhood, drug addiction and the impact it's had on his marriage, Janeane Garafalo, Oprah, music, sobriety, podcasts, upcoming projects and so much more.
