Andrew WK stopped by this episode of Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend to discuss life as a musician, motivational speaker and port-o-potty fan. Along the way he and Alison shared way too much and Alison is already wondering if she shouldn't have dialed it back. In short: don't eat while listening to this episode. Andrew WK also discussed his fashion choices, battles with depression, thoughts on relationships, love of babies and hopes and dreams for the future.

Jeff Dye, comedian and host of MTV's Strangers with Money stopped by this episode of Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend to talk about his perfect teeth and chiseled jaw line as well as his tousled hair and lanky physique. Actually, that's not true, and he thinks he's only good looking "for a comedian," but please. Anyway, we discussed his turbulent upbringing in the Seattle area, a health scare, religion, Ashton Kutcher, relationships, self-sabotage, dogs and flirting. We also shared our google search histories and then Alison told an embarrassing story while Gary shook his head at her and quietly judged her. Plus we tried to peel back some layers of the onion that is Gary and what did we find? More layers! The man is a riddle wrapped in stoicism wrapped in hair gel. Also Alfred Schulz stopped by to offer more Things You Never Hear People Say (with more dairy) and we did a round of Just Me Or Everyone (click here to see the JMOEs we put on the screen) and HGFY.
