Well, Wendy Williams didn’t waste any time getting back into controversy after returning to her show earlier this month. In fact, her most recent segment encouraged a response from the topic of conversation himself, radio show host veteran, Howard Stern.
The new feud began with comments Williams made about Stern while discussing his new book ‘Howard Stern Comes Again’ during her “Hot Topics” portion of ‘The Wendy Williams Show.’
Williams claimed Stern lost his edge, stating “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 gonna be about, ‘Oh, I love this one and then we went on their yacht.’ He’s a Hollywood insider now, which sucks because you started like me, being of the people. But at some point, you sat behind that microphone for too long and now you are the people… It hurts.”
Howard didn’t like her banter about him and proceeded to drag Wendy on his SiriusXM radio show, using every curse word imaginable- even calling her a “jealous b*tch.” According to #People, Stern said, “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.”
He continued, “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.”
Stern then warned Williams to “just shut up,” adding, “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.”
Stern wasn’t finished, however. He spent a good portion of his show bashing Williams, saying, “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!” He went on to say, “Broad doesn’t have an original thought in her goddamn head. She’s busy being Howard Stern.”
Then the real shade and frustration came out! Stern said, What have I done to this woman? Nothing. I’ve been gracious to her. Worry about your husband, not me. … F*ck 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.” He continued, “I’m not somebody you want to f*ck with, honey. I don’t want to hear your bullsh*t. And you’re not a nice person. Nobody likes you, that’s why you can’t go Hollywood. 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.”
