Reality star, entrepreneur, and Kim Kardashian's BFF, Jonathan Cheban, recently hosted The Pool After Dark and cleared the air about his career as well as his love life.
NJ.COM: Welcome, Actor and PR Guru Jonathan Cheban, to Atlantic City.
CHEBAN: Thank you very much. No more PR, I stopped the PR, so now I’m just Reality Star/Entrepreneur. I just have too many businesses and projects going on so I can’t do the PR stuff any more.
No problem, can you talk to us about the different projects you have going on?
CHEBAN: Just a lot of different restaurants, and I have this company called Glam Screen which is a phone accessory company that is all around the world now, in New Zeland and Australia and that is getting huge. I’m about to start a burger franchise and a lot of food stuff, I’m a big foodie. Plus, I have a jewelry line. I just have so many businesses going on now.
Speaking of being a foodie, have you had any good food while you were here in Atlantic City?
Cheban: I did. I am actually so crazy that I just got in from Florida and I ran to this place called White House. Everybody keeps writing me, so I went to White House and I had a cheesesteak and a classic sub already because I’m crazy like that. And there are so many restaurants at Harrah’s, so I’m sure later on tonight or tomorrow I’ll be eating here like a pig because I love to eat.
That's cool! So what are you expectations at The Pool tonight?
CHEBAN: Well I just saw The Pool After Dark, and first of all it’s insane. And from my room I saw this dome, it’s like a space ship, this thing is huge. I’m almost intimidated going in there, I feel like I’m going into a game show. It looks huge, I don’t know what’s going on in there, all I know is that I better not get thrown into the pool, otherwise someone is going to get their ass beat.
Let’s talk about you. I know you are dating someone now, but you were also recently featured on Millionaire Matchmaker, what was that experience like?
CHEBAN: I mean it was awkward because I am friends with Patty and she asked me to go on it, and we were on it, and it was just weird because I don’t randomly talk to people, it’s just not my thing. I was kind of put in a position where I had to interview these girls that I don’t know, so I was my usual obnoxious self and it was fun. I mean whatever, the girl was kind of cute, but she’s a vegan and that doesn’t work for me.
Point taken. Can you tell your fans, about one of your most prized possessions?
CHEBAN: I love my jewelry, my watch. This is from Jacob the Jeweler, Jacob Arabo, it's black diamond Cuban link, so I love jewelry. I have a very cool car, a Fisker which is awesome. It’s the same car that Justin Bieber has, so I’ve been driving that around town. I’m a little materialistic, but that’s me.
