- Walk us through a typical day in your shoes.
I wake up fairly early for a showbiz person, around 9 a.m. After breakfast, I research current theories and trends in relationships, as well as brain science for “Defending the Caveman” to keep it updated and current. After lunch, I work out. I’ve been losing weight and trying to get healthy. I do homework with my son, Griffin. Sadly, I can’t help my daughter McKenna with homework. She’s in high school and is studying math I can’t even comprehend. Showtime is at 8:40 p.m. nightly. I make couples laugh their asses off and fall in love all over again. Once I get home, I put in another hour or so writing whatever strikes my fancy. Around 1 a.m.—again, early for a showbiz person—it’s bedtime. And repeat.
- Have you ever purchased any As Seen on TV items?
I love As Seen on TV miracle products! Life-changing products I never even knew I needed? Count me in! I have a microwave cookset which I use daily. Let’s talk about the Snuggie. Someone, somewhere had the idea of wearing a bathrobe backward, and selling that idea to the world. What’s not to love about that? It’s undeniable proof that everyone is just one crazy idea away from being filthy stinkin’ rich.
- If you could destroy a grade-school photo of yourself, what year would it be and why?
It’s my senior picture from high school. It’s not the one I chose. (I’m looking at you, Munster High School yearbook staff!) This picture makes me look like I just got away with bluffing a busted flush. Hate this one.
- While grocery shopping, what is your stick-in-the-cart-when-no-one-is-looking item?
I try really hard to grocery shop the healthy way. I try to shop only the outside wall, where all the fresh food is located. I then come to the bakery and their frosted sugar cookies that I manage to resist—most of the time.
- If we were to look through your device, what is on your hit list or playlist or favorite app?
The new Cheap Trick album “Bang Zoom Crazy Hello.” The Knack’s first two albums, an incredibly underrated band. Karen Carpenter is my all-time favorite voice. Those minor key loves songs make me cry. Yeah, I said it. App-wise, Words With Friends.
- Do you ever play “tourist” in Vegas? If so, what is your favorite thing to do?
I can often be found shooting pinball at the Pinball Hall of Fame. There’s something far more appealing about a physical game over a video game. I’ve loved pinball since I was a kid, and still do.
- What do you do to unwind and relax?
I play golf with our showroom staff, Troy, Kyle and Nick. I hike and climb in Red Rock, especially with my kids. I also watch a lot of documentaries on Netflix.
- Does anyone ever mistake you for someone else?
When I was younger, I would get mistaken for John Ritter or Beau Bridges.
