"Going on Howard Stern was embarrassing," writes Kennedy in her new memoir, The Kennedy Chronicles: The Golden Age of MTV Through Rose-Colored Glasses. It was "like a verbal speculum that opened me up to a brand of vulnerability that I had never encountered and it was one of the best experiences of my professional life."
Comedian Scott Adsit, best known as "Pete" on 30 Rock, read an excerpt from Kennedy's memoir at a book party hosted by the Reason Foundation at the Museum of Sex in New York City on July 31, 2013. Adsit picked a selection from the book in which Stern—"the King"—invites Kennedy on his show and then convinces her to open up about her virginity by flashing her a "grandma grin" and staring at her with his "safe blue eyes."
