Brian Austin Green is telling the behind-the-scenes stories of his new “Old·ish” podcast.
In an exclusive interview with Page Six, the newly engaged “Beverly Hills, 90210” actor admits he didn’t get ex Megan Fox before filming the no-holds-barred drama about co-parenting or with permission of Vanessa Marcil.
“No, no. I extend my hand [Megan] After that,” explained Green, who co-hosts the iHeartRadio podcast with fiancée Shanna Burgess and longtime friend Randy Spelling.
“I texted her and said, ‘Hey, just to let you know, I discussed our co-parenting on the podcast. I’m sorry if you didn’t mean that.”
Green, 50, reiterated to Page Six that he tries to keep the podcast conversation positive to help others who may be going through similar situations.
“We’re not trying to shame people. The three of us work together to take as much responsibility for our lives as possible,” he explains, noting that they don’t plan “too far ahead” when choosing the topics the podcast explores.
“So we’re not just sitting here trying to point fingers and talk about our individual stories. We’re trying to make our stories the collective story.”
Throughout the Sept. 19 episode, Green discussed his personal experiences with blended families and co-parenting in the public eye. He and Fox share children Noah, 10, Bodhi, 9, Journey, 7, and Kassius, 21, and Marcil and Zane, 1, and Burgess.
“We get along great together,” he said of Foxx, marveling at how “incredibly lucky” they are to have a friendly relationship.
“We communicate well when we need to, we’re open to things and we don’t take things personally. It’s my goal for the kids to live in the healthiest environment possible, I think That’s her goal too.”
Burgess chimed in: “We’re lucky because we have a great relationship. I think the biggest thing is we’ve made it a priority so that we can interact and have a good time.”
Greene also said his experience co-parenting with Foxx was significantly different than his experience co-parenting with Marcil, who claimed that Cassius, while recovering from vertigo, She raised him on her own after Si “cut him out of his life.”
“Our relationship with Vanessa has hit a roadblock at almost every turn,” he explained, denying Marcille’s assault accusations.
“It would be huge if Vanessa decided, ‘Hey, I’m going to make sure that your son can still come to your house and see you while you’re going through this.'” That would be incredible. The change. But that’s not how things work, and that’s not how things happen. “
Green dated Marcille, 54, from 1999 to 2003. He married Fox, 37, in 2010, but the pair split in 2020. The “Jennifer’s Body” star has since dated rocker Machine Gun Kelly, while Green has been dating Burgess. Since 2020.
The actor revealed earlier this week that he secretly proposed to the former Dancing With the Stars pro during a surprise 50th birthday celebration in July.
“He proposed to me,” Burgess shared on their podcast’s “Breaking News.” “We’ve been engaged for a minute. We’ve been engaged for two months.”
At the same time, he also had to consider the pros and cons of committing to such an honest podcast, given the Spelling family’s fame. The life coach told Page Six that he’s had a great time talking to his mom, Candy Spelling, and sister, Tori Spelling, so far.
“I don’t think there’s any concern. My sister and my mom both know me. They know my integrity and where I’m coming from. The purpose of what I’m doing, what we’re doing is to help people collectively talk about these things,” he shared road.
“As [Sharna and Brian] Say, it’s not just about sharing these details to call people out and make headlines. So, yeah, I think everyone is on board and excited about this adventure. “
However, Randy realizes that stories about his inner circle may come up organically, but told us it’s important for listeners to understand both sides.

“We’ll mention people and it will come up because these are the actors in our films, so to speak, in our field. But there’s always another side. So even if we say something and it’s our experience, Be open to letting the other person have different experiences,” he urges.
“I think it’s really important today when everything is so polarizing, that you might hear one thing and then people get angry and upset because they’re like, ‘Oh, well, This is the truth.'” That’s the truth about that person, that’s Their experience. “
As for whether Fox, MGK, Candy or Tori will appear in “Old·ish” soon?
“I think we’ll definitely consider having guests at some point. I think we naturally will,” Burgess joked.
“We’re just getting started, and we’ve certainly talked about having guests. We were talking about some of the people in our circle the other day, like, ‘Who are we going to invite?’ “It has to make sense for the topic we’re talking about, right? Not just because it’s someone people might recognize.”
Burgess added that she certainly had “a lot of people” in mind who had “been through a lot” of their lives.
“There’s a lot there that they could share if they wanted to,” she said. “So there is no doubt that in the future they will be guests. But as of now, we have not locked people in.”
The podcast host told Page Six that the upcoming episode will tackle addiction, with Randy telling a personal story that many people, including Greene and Burgess, didn’t know until now.
“We were both discovering this for the first time and held space for each other,” Randy joked. “It was a little emotional.”
