Aron Bender catches up with Tessa Barrera -- one of his favorite people ever, even though she's an Astros fan. Born and raised in Texas, she's worked in radio and television news for many years but before that played in the Lingerie Football League, was a participant in Stone Cold Steve Austin's Broken Skull Challenge, and auditioned to become a WWE Diva. We worked together at KFI in Los Angeles, then Tessa moved on to join 94.5 The Buzz and The Rod Ryan Show, the #1 morning show in Houston.
