A war of words has broken out between two media figures, with Howard Stern unleashing a stream of expletives aimed at talk show host Wendy Williams.
Stern erupted after a caller to his SiriusXM radio show mentioned that Williams had brought him up on her daytime show. TheWrap reports that Stern noted he has “very thin skin” and said, “Lemme hear this and I’m gonna say some s–t I’m gonna regret. I know it.”
Stern later played audio of Williams’ comments, and went off after she referred to him as a “Hollywood insider.” TheWrap quotes Stern saying: “What a c–t. What a f–king bug-eyed c–t. F–k you. You heard me. F–k off, c–t.”
In the segment that set him off, Williams discussed Stern’s upcoming book, “Howard Stern Comes Again.” She was mostly supportive, including encouraging viewers to buy the book. But she also said: “Howard is so Hollywood right now … and Howard, I love you, but since you’ve gone Hollywood, everything that you say is so predictable. Every story is going to be about, oh, I love this one, and then we went on their yacht. And he’s a Hollywood insider now, which sucks.”
TheWrap notes that Stern’s response included calling Williams a “cow” and a “broad-faced bitch.” He’s also quoted saying: “She just ruined my day. That’s why I put out a book, so she could knock me. Jealous bitch. You’ll never be me, Wendy. You’ll never be me. You can pretend to be me, you can pretend to be like me — but you’re not. You’re never gonna be me. You don’t have my wit and you don’t have my talent. That’s it, that’s the end of the story.”
