    Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman sat down with Anthony Scaramucci and his wife, Deidre Scaramucci, to open up about his experience with being nearly arrested for driving a “stolen” car. Turns out, the situation was more embarrassing than anything else.

    The Scaramuccis recorded their RADIO.COM Original podcast, “Mooch and the Mrs.,” live from New York City’s Hunt & Fish Club in Times Square on Tuesday. When Cashman took the stage, Deidre couldn’t resist asking him about the details of his near-arrest.

    Cashman begins by explaining what happened. Back in August, he went outside in the morning to take a cruise in his convertible Jeep, only to find that the car had been stolen. The car was soon recovered without damages.

    Upon retrieving the car and driving back to his home, Cashman quickly learned that the vehicle had not yet been taken off of the “stolen” list. He was pulled over, held at gunpoint, and asked to raise his hands above his head.

    As terrifying as the situation sounds, Cashman remembers one overwhelming emotion: embarrassment. “I wasn’t scared, I was embarrassed,” he explains. Patrons of a nearby Starbucks saw the whole thing.

    The Yankees GM could only imagine what they must have been thinking. He continues, “They’re thinking, ‘What am I, Pablo Escobar?’”

    Still, Cashman lauds the NYPD for their fast acting, despite having mistaken Cashman for a thief. “I give a huge applause to them,” he says of the incident.

    Cashman’s got one confession regarding the whole ordeal. “I just didn’t want the body cam footage coming out,” he explains.

    Several guests appeared on the live taping of RADIO.COM original podcast, “Mooch and the Mrs.” on Tuesday night including “Real Housewives of New Jersey” alum Jacqueline Laurita.

    During their conversation, Laurita talked about her RADIO.COM original podcast “The LookOver Ladies.”

    The podcast features just about any topics that are on a woman’s mind.

    Jacqueline Laurita, the host and former housewife of seven seasons, joins her girlfriends Jill Ashley and Melissa Polo as they talk about their hectic and exciting lives. “It’s our platform to let loose and talk about things that women love to talk about,” she said.

    “We all have backgrounds in beauty, health, wellness, fashion,” Laurita said. “We touch on all that but then we always go off on tangents and just start talking [about] random, inappropriate things,” she continued.

    But the “Real Housewives” star has never been shy when it comes to her personal life. She recently shared that her son, Nicholas, has autism.

    “My life is very autism focused. I have a son with autism. I help families that are affected by autism all the time.,” Laurita said.

    She uses her real-life experiences to help other families who have children with autism. Laurita said she coaches them to live healthy lives every day.

    In terms of her podcast, she sees it as an opportunity to escape the craziness of day-to-day life. “This is my kind of release to let go of all that and just be a girl,” she said.

    “The LookOver Ladies” can be found on the RADIO.COM app and everywhere podcasts are available.

    “It’s really about the conversations while we are traveling,” she said. “It could be your family discussions, you know, around the table, and what comes up,” Wakile continued.

    “I learned a long time ago when you learn how to cook, and you’re good at it, you always have friends,” Wakile said.

    Wakile also opened up on her daughter’s health. Her daughter had to undergo two brain surgeries to remove a benign tumor.

    “We were shocked,” Wakile said. “Totally shocked, and 10 years later, fast forward -she’s in nursing school. She decided to go in that career path because she wanted to give back,” she continued.

    Wakile said her daughter is feeling great and has two semesters left in nursing school.

    Wakile joined ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ during the show’s third season in 2011, and later wrote a national bestselling cookbook called, “Indulge: Delicious Little Desserts That Keep Life Real Sweet.” She also launched a line of desserts, called, Indulge with Kathy Wakile, created the Indulge cannoli kit, and opened Pizza Love, an Italian restaurant in New Jersey.

  • Exclusive: Anthony Scaramucci: My Wife ‘Would Have A Lot of Fun’ Starring on ‘Real Housewives’

    Anthony Scaramucci is all about his wife possibly starring on “The Real Housewives of New York City.”

    “I’m totally fine with it. Whatever you want to do. I think you’d have a lot of fun,” the former White House Director of Communications told his wife Deidre during the latest episode of their RADIO.COM podcast, “Mooch and the Mrs.” 

    “I just hope that my Trump affiliation, to be totally candid — because I know a lot of people in Hollywood dislike the Orange Man — I hope the Cheetos stains on my hands are not on your hands,” he quipped.

    Addressing news that broke earlier on Page Six that she was reportedly in talks to join the cast, Deidre, who co-hosts the show with Anthony, said, “I can’t really get into too much detail, but I would love to do the show, if they really wanted me to do the show. We’ll let you guys know. Stay tuned...I love reality TV…I think it would be fun!”

    Deidre said, “Somebody told me I’m not interesting. The only reason they want me is that I’m married to you. There’s probably 80 percent truth to that. The person told me, there’s so many attractive, smart, funny women in New York.”

    Anthony said, “But you have something different. You have a translucency to your personality. You’re totally comfortable and you don’t try to hide sh*t. I think that’s really impressive. It’s a perverse sign of wacko major security,” he said.

    Deidre also told RADIO.COM separately about some of the racier comments about her possibly joining the show, saying that one online commenter wrote, “No one watches Bravo TV to be reminded of Trump rubbish outcast looking like Kim Zolciak circa 2009. No Andy [Cohen], don’t do it.”

    Speaking of Zolciak, who was formerly on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” she said, “Everyone always says, especially when I go to the airport, and I go through TSA, they always tell me that I look like Kim Zolciak.”

    Anthony said, “That’s a compliment to Kim Zolciak. Shout-out to Kim. If you look like my wife, you’re definitely hot stuff.”

  • Maria Menounos Opens Up on Brain Surgery: Sylvester Stallone Helped Me Get Through It

    By Jacquie Cadorette, Radio.com

    Maria Menounos has been through quite a roller coaster of trauma, between being diagnosed with brain cancer and undergoing surgery, and coping with her mother’s own brain cancer diagnosis and treatments. In an exclusive interview with “Mooch and the Mrs., Menounos opens up about how her friend, Sylvester Stallone, helped her to cope.

    “Going into surgery, I was playing ‘Rocky’ music as my theme song,” the former “E! News” host told Anthony Scaramucci and his wife, Deidre, for their RADIO.COM podcast. “Rocky’s quote gets me through so much: ‘It ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward,'” Menounous revealed she would say to herself through her struggles.

    “He’s a dear friend, and then when I came out of surgery, I was quoting ‘Rocky,’” Menounos said of her 2017 procedure.

    Menounos said that a quote Scaramucci once told her about fear — “Everything you want is on the other side of fear” — also stuck with her through her 2017 procedure.

    On top of coping with her own diagnoses, had her mother’s illness to think about, too. After various treatment methods left her mom weakened and ill, Menounos got her involved in alternative therapies. The therapies had their side effects, though, and when Menounos went under the knife to get her own brain tumor taken care of, her mother admitted some time later that she really didn’t remember it much.

    “Between the cognitive deficits, the radiation, inflammation, she doesn’t remember anything,” she said. However, that’s really not such a bad thing. “To me, that was another silver lining because she didn’t have to feel that. To someone who has cancer, the last thing they need is stress,” she said.

    Despite the gravity of her struggles, Menounos has been able to gain a new sense of hope and understanding. “My life had to change, and it has, drastically. Anybody else would be kind of freaking out … and I’m really loving the moments of uncomfortableness,” she said. “I feel like if I’m gonna go to the next dimension, this is kind of that place where I’m really working on [the] next level.”
