Howard Stern Comes After Wendy Williams & Her Husband
The King of all media is coming after the Queen of all media — our girl, Wendy Williams.
Howard Stern spoke about Wendy on his SiriusXM radio show this week, slamming the host after she criticized his softer tone in his new book, Howard Stern Comes Again.
“Jealous bitch. … You are nobody to me,” he said aggressively. “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.”
Ouch. Really Howard?
The whole thing started when Wendy discussed Howard’s book on The Wendy Williams Show, where she said: “Howard is so Hollywood right now. And Howard, I love you, but since you’ve gone Hollywood, everything you say is so predictable. Every story is going to be about, ‘Oh, I love this one, and then we went on their yacht.’ He’s a Hollywood insider, which sucks.”
“You started like me, being of the people,” she continued, “but at some point, you sat behind the microphone for too long and now you are the people.”
When Howard heard what she said, he was clearly pissed. The shock jock fired back, saying it was Wendy who had “gone Hollywood.”
“What evidence do you have that I’m Hollywood, honey?” he said on the radio. “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–king with.”
“All she talks on that show is about Hollywood,” he added later. “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!”
Of course, he took it to a whole other level by making digs at her two-month show absence and her husband’s rumored infidelity and alleged abusive nature.
“What have I done to this woman? Nothing. I’ve been gracious to her,” Howard said. “Worry about your husband, not me. … F–k you and your dumb show and your mystery illness. She disappears for two months, nobody knows why, and now she’s questioning me? Thanks, honey. … I never fainted on my show either.”
“I’m not somebody you want to f–k with, honey. I don’t want to hear your bulls–t. And you’re not a nice person. Nobody likes you, that’s why you can’t go Hollywood,” he continued, claiming, “People do not like her. [The staff] was doing a dance over at The Wendy Williams Show when she was out. She’s a big pain in the ass. I hate to break the news to you, honey. Good thing you hurried back.”
Wendy returned to her show on March 4.
