Whether you know him from the WWF, Howard Stern, or Twitter, chances are you’ve got a special place in your heart for the Iron Sheik. He was one of the greatest wrestlers who ever lived and a star with a tragic fall from grace.
This new documentary covers it all, starting with a look at his glorious past stretching from Olympic glory to 80′s super-stardom and following him through his tragic fallow years all the way to his current internet infamy.
The TM technique involves the use of a sound or mantra and is practiced for 15–20 minutes twice per day. It is taught by certified teachers through a standard course of instruction, which costs a fee that varies by country.
According to the Transcendental Meditation movement, it is a method for relaxation, stress reduction and self-development. The technique has been described as both religious and as non-religious by sociologists, scholars, and a New Jersey court case.
Hulk Hogan has endured plenty of physical trauma in his many years as a professional wrestler, but it was the dishonesty of Bubba The Love Sponge who allegedly leaked a tape of Hogan having sex with his wife that hurt the most.
“It was a tough situation. It’s probably the hardest I’ve ever been kicked, bar none,” Hogan said of the sex tape leak. “But at the end of the day it’s all about choices.”
Despite the situation, Hulk refrained from speaking ill of Bubba at all, explaining that he’d prefer to live in the present and accept the situation as playing a larger role in his destiny.
“It is what it is,” he said. “At the end of the day, the pros are handling it, and no matter what it is, I understand people. And for whatever reason, I forgive him. I forgive myself for the choices we’ve made. I can’t hate, brother. That’s not my deal. Can’t do it.”
David Letterman announced Thursday he plans to retire next year. Howard Stern is just one of the names industry spectators are floating around as a possible replacement for David Letterman.
At least for now though, the longtime radio personality says of the idea, “My plate is full.”
Stern addressed the late-night TV talk show host’s retirement announcement while arriving in New York on Friday for “America’s Got Talent” auditions. Stern is one of the judges on the show.
The 60-year-old stressed Letterman’s impact on late-night TV, saying he’s sad to see Letterman leave. Stern said he enjoyed his appearances on the “Late Show with David Letterman.”
“I’ve been doing the show for years and years and I’ve had so many funny, great times with him that, you know, it’ll be weird not to have him there.”
Stern also said there are few people in show biz whose opinion matters to him, and Letterman is one.
One of Stern’s fellow “America’s Got Talent” judges, Heidi Klum, supports the idea of Stern taking over for Letterman, saying he’d be perfect.
“Howard is very special, you know? He gets right to the chase. He’s not scared of anything, and I like that about him. He gets things out of people. Sometimes people don’t even want to like say certain things, and he gets it out of them.”
Today CNN’s Anderson Cooper appeared on Howard Stern, who will soon be returning to America’s Got Talent. Cooper opened up about his own brother’s suicide, growing up rich and Megyn Kelly’s Fox News.
Howard started the interview off with a bang, when he asked Cooper why ratings at CNN were so low, and why Fox News continues to dominate the ratings:
“I do think in cable news, the networks that have strong opinions-so whether you are a conservative network like Fox or a liberal network like MSNC-when there’s not a huge news story going on, they’re entertaining and that’s what people tune into.”
“It seems CNN has done well when there is some big news happening and people are tuning in to see what is going on. It’s a difficult place to be in when there isn’t a major news story going on.”
Gossip Extra Exclusive: Radio star Howard Stern is spending between $8 million and $10 million on the renovation of his ocean-front mansion he just bought in Palm Beach for $52 million!
And the purpose for some of the construction work is to satisfy Stern’s model wife: She wanted a larger closet!
She’s going to get one that’s about 1,000 square feet! And for that to happen, a source who saw the blueprints tells me, workers will have to move the grand staircase to a different part of the 18,000-square-foot house.
“They’re changing the master suite, which is on the first floor,” the source said. “The suite includes his and her bathroom and his and her dressing areas.
“Beth wanted a bigger closet in her dressing area. There was no room for it downstairs, so they’re building a new staircase in the master suite that goes to a second-floor closet. The closet alone is supposed to be at least 1,000 square feet.”
The closet will set the satellite radio host back $500,000!
To accommodate the change, major work will have to be done on the first floor. And while they’re at it, the Sterns are building a brand new kitchen and roof.
Stern’s agent has not returned calls for comment.
Comedian Bill Maher hosted a ‘Real Time’ show on HBO on Friday that’s one for the big book. He spoke of the story of Noah’s Ark and called the biblical God a ‘psychotic mass murderer’ who also ‘drowns babies.’
Maher explains that he dislikes the story of Noah’s Ark because of it’s ‘implausibility’ and its ‘immorality’.
The controversial late night comedian points out that the story is about a man who at 900 years old decides to take two animals of every kind in the world, who conveniently happen to live within 5 miles of each other and load them onto a giant ship to save them from God as he destroys the world so that it may start anew.
