More Mindless Stories on ‘howard stern’
I’m almost certain that when someone speaks the words “Gabourey Sidibe” Oprah’s ears stick up and her tail begins to wag like a dogs would when it hears that high pitched whistle. However furthermore nevertheless and thou, that hasn’t stopped Howard Stern and Robin Quivers from poking a little fun at Precious herself and how no one will acknowledge the idea that it’s going to be tough casting her in future movies and, well, that’s me putting it nicely. Although, Howard and Robin to seem to think she’s a “done deal” for being cast as the football player in “The Blind Side 2.”
I miss listening to them. Even though it’s always wrong they do make me laugh. I guess enough time has passed. Let the Gabourey Sidibe backlash begin.
So basically anyone can just be a judge on American Idol now? Those with music experience need not apply. It’s being rumored that Howard Stern is the front runner by Idol producers who want him to replace Simon Cowell when he leaves at the end of this season. A source is saying that producers approached Stern after he spoke repeatedly about his unhappiness with being on Sirius/XM radio. They believe that Stern will provide a lot of conflict with the other judges and contestants and make some good television and that they’re one of the only media outlets that can offer him something financially attractive enough that Sirius/XM can. Currently it’s reported that Sirius/XM is paying Stern $50 million a year. Yup, that sounds like Idol money to me.
While I’m sure this is just a rumor and possibly a contract negotiating tactic by Stern at best, how awesome would it be if he were the new judge? Just think what it would be like if while Carrie Underwood were singing, “I Go Out Walking, After Midnight” Stern was throwing bologna at her ass. Brilliant, right?
When Artie and Howard were talking about depression and past bouts with depression, Howard stated that he had a gun in his mouth twice before. The others in the studio were a bit shocked, clearly, and Howard just stated that he has some dark days in the past and then he quickly moved on. Since even I can’t make a funny joke about that, let’s move on to some other Howard Stern Show news…
Artie Lange, Howard’s sidekick, informed listeners that he is quitting the show and will be leaving this coming January. Uh, wouldn’t a two-week notice suffice? Artie has been working a bit on the TV show “Rescue Me” and “Entourage” and has just felt a little burnt out. Have you called Jenny yet?
Howard Stern: “I thought there was a point you wanted me.”
Martha: “I did…but then I met you.”
On her brief courtship with Sir Anthony Hopkins:
Howard: “Men are afraid of you.”
Martha: “I know, that’s the whole problem.”
Howard: “Sir Anthony Hopkins…you dated.”
Martha: “Oh, I loved him, but he was…scary. I was going to invite him up to Maine, I have this beautiful home in Maine…but then I revisited because I saw that movie again, [Silence of the Lambs]. I couldn’t get past the Hannibal thing with him. I couldn’t get past it – do you want someone eating your brain while you are sitting in your beautiful dining room in Maine?”
Howard: “What you bring up is true because I had Linda Blair when she was very young on my show, it was after The Exorcist and she was kind of coming on to me, and I was like ‘That’s the chick who’s possessed.’”
Martha: “I would have probably had a very nice relationship with Anthony Hopkins but I couldn’t get past the Lecter thing.”
Howard: “Who came on to you?”
Martha: “Some girls that looked like boys.”
Howard: “What would they say to you?”
Martha: “They would ask me for lunch, a lunch date. They also wanted to learn. I’d have lunch with them. There were girls with mustaches and there were girls with beards. First they’d ask about business. They all had business plans. Everybody in prison has a business plan.”
