Howard Stern did not hold back as he discussed Wendy Williams’ recent comments about him on his SiriusXM radio show Wednesday.
Williams spoke about Stern’s upcoming book “Howard Stern Comes Again” on her show recently, with her calling the host “so Hollywood.”
Not taking the comments lying down, Stern hit back: “Jealous b***h. 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.”
His comments come after Williams 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. But at some point, you sat behind the microphone for too long and now you are the people. It hurts.”
Stern then said, according to People: “What evidence do you have that I’m Hollywood, honey? 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. 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!”
Stern went on: “Here’s my weekend: I go home, I write stuff for this show, I wrote stuff for my book, and then I stare at the wall waiting for the next show.
“I work my ass off on this show, day in and day out, to make sure that it’s good. 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.”
