Phoenix radio host has cameo in Netflix documentary Ashley Madison

Not the kind of news you want to hear: Hey, did you know you’re on that new show, “Ashley Madison: Sex, Lies & Scandal” on Netflix?

But that’s exactly the question Beth McDonald, co-host of KEZ 99.9’s popular morning show, “Beth and Friends,” heard when her sister in Indiana called recently.

“It was a surprise to me,” McDonald told The Arizona Republic. No doubt. Because who would want to know that they are part of a docuseries about a relationship site for married people who want to cheat on their partners?

It’s nothing to worry about. Andrew Babinski, who was recently named co-host of “Beth and Friends,” got down to business on a recent show. “Were you sleeping and dating married guys?” he asked.

Mmm no. “I was talking about it in the studio,” McDonald said.

Why did Beth McDonald appear in an Ashley Madison documentary?

In fact, he points listeners to Episode 2, at the 14:30 mark, where McDonald is standing in the studio talking about the 2015 leak that exposed the information of more than 30 million Ashley Madison users.

“I’m waiting for the fun to start with this,” McDonald says in the clip. “Whose name will be on it?”

And that is. “My 5.8 seconds of fame.”

Although it may turn out to be something more than that. McDonald said he was having a drink at Tarbell’s and the bartender asked him if he knew he was on the show. Later he also asked a friend.

How much did Beth McDonald get paid to be on a Netflix show?

“I don’t know how they got the video,” McDonald said. “I have no idea.” He wasn’t paid for her appearance.
