Although Megyn Price is no Hollywood madam, the script for the one-woman show she's developing has L.A.'s leading men sweating harder than they have since Heidi Fleiss's little black book made big headlines. In the autobiographical project about her wild and crazy days as a bachelorette, the sexy, scene-stealing mom on Fox's Grounded for Life tells all about her famous exes... well, almost.
"I'm naming no names," the actress tells TV Guide Online. "They will all be named different, fictional names like Stinky Guy, Homeless Guy, Liar Guy and Hairy Guy. I can't name names because I could be sued!"
Price says a close call on Late Night with Conan O'Brien — when one former beau nearly exposed their fling on-air — led her to take the no-kiss-and-dish approach. "I don't think that's fair, because we all go through different phases, and different people behave differently," she says. "When I was 18, I'm sure I behaved very poorly. And when I was 23, I'm sure that I behaved very poorly. But at 30, I feel like I've kind of figured out a little bit more. Those people all went through their own phases, too."
Describing her stage act as "the progress between being very, very single, and then dating, and then being married to the right person," Price says it will not paint her in the most flattering of lights. "It's horrible to say, but I used people," confesses the Seattle native, who hopes to debut the show in Los Angeles in December. "I learned about myself from using other people on dates — and that's the ugliest thing I could ever say about myself."
Now, happily married to her childhood sweetheart — "Steady Eddie," as she refers to him — Price says she's happy to put her single days behind her. "Dating is stupid. Dating is crazy. Dating is nuts... it's horrible," she sighs. "I finally, ultimately came back to the person I had the big high school crush on, so you kind of need to go forward to go backward and then go backward to go forward. And until you find the right person, I think the whole thing is about figuring out who you are."
