“Howard is so Hollywood right now,” Williams said on her show yesterday. “And Howard, I love you. but since you’ve gone Hollywood, everything you say is so predictable. Every story is gonna be about, you know ‘Oh, I love this one and then we went on their yacht.'” Later that day, Stern addressed Williams remarks on “The Howard Stern Show,” calling her a “jealous bitch,” perET Canada: “Jealous bitch. You are nobody to me. 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 don’t have my wit and you don’t have my talent. You couldn’t have that career. You’re a fly.”
Representatives for SiriusXM did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for confirmation on Stern’s comments about Williams.
“What evidence do you have that I’m Hollywood, honey?” Stern said, according toPeople. “I grew up a scumbag and I’m still treated like a scumbag. … What because I found success now I’m ‘Hollywood?’ What cause I know Jimmy Kimmel? Who am I hanging out with? She doesn’t know who I’m hanging out with. She doesn’t know what I do in this world. She doesn’t know who I’m f–ing with.” Stern then accused Williams of hypocrisy.
“All she talks on that show is about Hollywood,” Stern said. “That’s as Hollywood as you get. If anyone in Hollywood called her to hang out, she’d [be there] in two seconds. All of that is a projection!”
“I work my ass off on this show, day in and day out, to make sure that it’s good,” he continued. “Just shut up. Keep your opinion to yourself about me. I have struggled my entire life through thick and thin to actually get out there and do something that actually means something to people. That’s such an insult to me.” “What has she said that’s controversial? When has she put herself on the line?” Stern then asked. “What has she done actually? I don’t even know. You’re not the ‘Queen of All Media.’ You haven’t earned that title. You haven’t done anything.”
“You haven’t had the career I’ve had,” he said. “I had radio stations firing me, I had the government on my ass. I never backed down from a fight in my life. Such an edgy broadcaster. When did you ever go to war with anyone? When did you fight with the FCC? When did you have the religious right coming up your ass and people throwing you off radio stations and not knowing if you can continue your career? Have you lived my life?”
“Broad doesn’t have an original thought in her goddamn head,” Stern said. “She’s busy being Howard Stern.”
