Mysteries and Scandals (also known as Mysteries & Scandals) is an American television program hosted by A.J. Benza.[1] The series was originally broadcast on the E! network from March 1998 until February 2001.


The series detailed the lives of various celebrities, both well known and somewhat obscure. Most celebrities that were featured endured hardships or died untimely deaths. The series interviewed various celebrities who knew the subject along with still photographs accompanied by narrations, and dramatic reenactments.

The show was highly stylized and presented each episode in a noir fashion with backdrops set in various Hollywood locations and narrated in a deadpan fashion by Benza. His memorable catchphrase "Fame, ain't it a bitch," would later became the title of Benza's autobiography.[2]

The series aired for three seasons. Episodes were repeated on E! for a period of time after the series' initial run.
