Man Up!, with an introduction written by Gwyneth Paltrow, and afterword from Chelsea Handler, takes readers inside Mathews’ personal journey as a super fan, revealing the most embarrassing and hilarious moments of his small town life and big city adventures, and how he managed to turn an obsession with pop culture into one on one interactions with celebrities like Paltrow, Tiffani-Amber Theissen, Madonna, and Michelle Kwan [to name a few] without ever having a single restraining order issued against him.
Ross first arrived on the scene in 2001 as a correspondent for NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and over the past 10 years he has become known for his endearing, witty, and undeniably funny personality. Mathew’s can be seen as a regular panelist and occasional guest host on E!’s late-night talk show “Chelsea Lately,” and is a fixture on E! News and E! Network’s live red carpet awards show coverage. In March 2013 Mathews will shoot his first talk show pilot, produced by Chelsea Handler’s Borderline Amazing Productions, that he will host, write, and co-produce. The show will be a celebration of all things pop culture, and will include celebrity guests, audience interaction, and field pieces.
Mathews currently lives in Los Angeles with his partner, Salvador, and their two rescue dogs, Louise and Mijo. When not working on his many projects, Mathews is a strong supporter of the Human Rights Campaign, speaking at many of their nationwide events and he received their Visibility Award in 2011.
