Harvey Weinstein, Hollywood’s casting couch and Howard Stern

Who will be the next Harvey Weinstein? Who will be the next to fall in the entertainment industry? Could it be Howard Stern? British newspapers seem to think so. The Independent, Metro UK, The Sun, and Mirror have all published articles accusing Howard Stern of creepily degrading “Baby Spice” Emma Bunton in a 2005 interview.

The 2005 interview has Spice Girl Emma Bunton fending off “deeply inappropriate suggestive remarks” including what age she was when she first got her period.

“You’ve got a hot little body. I can see you girl-on-girl action, I can see you with two guys. I could see you doing a lot of things,” said Stern.

“My dad won’t be happy that you’re talking to me about this,” Bunton replies to which Stern comments: “He loves it.”

Howard proceeds to comment on her outfit, saying “I feel like you didn’t wear a bra just for me today? I feel like you’re not wearing panties today.”

“It’s turning me on a little bit,” Stern adds. Bunton replies: “Really? Good. That’s nice for you.”

Howard did not simply leave it there: “I bet when you were young you started in with boys, right? You were very developed. What age did you develop? 14? When did you get your period? How old were you?”

As longtime listeners of The Howard Stern Show, we have come to know Howard obviously has a fascination with prepubescent girls. He has continually brought up his love of babysitter porn and abhorrence of women with pubic hair. However, it’s still difficult to believe that the British media is so disturbed by this interview while ignoring mass rapes in the UK by Pakistani gangs on a daily basis.

Are they really looking to find the next Harvey Weinstein or is this a ploy for web traffic? At least these accusations have inspired right-minded people to shine a light on sexual abuse against women in Hollywood, which is apparently rampant.

Hear Howard Stern ask Harvey Weinstein About Using his Power for Sexual Favors

Appearing on The Howard Stern Show in 2014, Harvey Weinstein attempted to paint a picture of himself as a well-read, dedicated father who stayed away from any of the stereotypical Hollywood funny business.

“Why not stay single? I gotta figure every starlet in Hollywood wanted to at least blow you, you know what I’m saying?” asked Stern. “Did you ever get to experience, I’m gonna say, the mogul aspect? I mean, Do a little coke, hang out with, I don’t know, Julia Roberts give you a hand job, something? You never got any of that?”

“Howard, as you know only too well, it doesn’t work that way,” Weinstein replied. “I’ll tell you who it works that way for: it works that way for the actors.”

“Come on, every girl knows that if she’s a competent actress, she could get on your good side, you could make her a star over-fucking-night,” Stern insisted to Weinstein in the 2014 interview. “Don’t tell me it doesn’t work that way.”

Weinstein gave the answer we would all expect: “Howard, the movies are too expensive, the risks are too great,” he said. “It doesn’t happen that way anymore.”

Stern then asked: “You can’t walk into the room, pull your pants off, say, ‘Okay, honey’?” An amazing question at the time given the multiple allegations of Weinstein having done just that.

Donald Trump to Howard Stern: “You have no idea how tough I’d be” on North Korea

“This is the final question,” Howard Stern said toward the end of a 2006 interview in which Trump appeared. “Are you ready? You are the president of the United States. What do we do about North Korea?”

“I would be so tough, you have no idea,” Trump replied. “You have no idea how tough I’d be.”

“Embargoes?” Stern asked.

“Well, I think I’d go beyond embargoes,” Trump said. “I would be so tough, but I wouldn’t send [Bush’s Secretary of State] Condoleezza Rice in to negotiate.”

Stern asked why, to which Trump replied, “I don’t think she’s tough enough. I mean, I don’t think she’s a tough person.”

When Stern asked if Rice was a “lightweight,” Trump said he thought she was “not tough enough to do a good job.”

Eleven years later and now POTUS Trump is dealing with North Korea head on. Yesterday President Trump tweeted accusing his predecessors of failing to deal with North Korea’s nuclear program but stated he would not be doing the same.

“Being nice to Rocket Man hasn’t worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I won’t fail,” he said on Twitter.

Trump also tweeted suggesting that his presumably “tough enough” Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, was wasting his time dealing with Kim Jong Un.

“I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man,” he said. “Save your energy Rex, we’ll do what has to be done!”

Artie Lange writes SHOCKING forward to Jackie’s new book “The Joke Man: Bow to Stern”

THE JOKE MAN: BOW TO STERN is a memoir on Jackie’s life. From trying to make it as a New York stand-up comic to working on the biggest radio show of all time, The Howard Stern Show, “The Joke Man” shares his personal stories. Jackie doesn’t hold back in his new book, revealing why he left the show and his falling out with Stern and the staff.

Radar Online obtained an early copy of the book which is set to be released October 24, 2017. Radar reports that Artie Lange “snubs the King of All Media” in the forward to the book. Lange, apparently he went on to highlight that Howard Stern was NOT the best part of The Stern Show, rather, it was Martling.

“I found out later my influence wasn’t Howard. It was Howard a lot, but was the sensibility Jackie brought to the show,” Lange wrote in the Forward for Martling’s upcoming book, “The Joke Man: Bow to Stern”. He added, “that’s been my style, with much thanks to him.”

“Way back, if you asked any of my buddies who we’d like to hang out with, it always would have been Jackie,” Lange revealed. “In my stand-up and talk show appearances and even the sketches I wrote on Howard Stern, the biggest influence was probably Jackie Martling. Because of what he brought to Stern, the political incorrectness, the subtle stuff he used to do in the background. That’s what all my premises were. He was truly dangerous.”

Hillary Clinton says “IT’S OVER” for Possible 2020 Presidential Run

Hillary Clinton announced that she will not be running for public office again. “As an active politician, it’s over,” Clinton said in an interview with CBS.

“I couldn’t get the job done, and I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life.”

Clinton who was Howard Stern’s preferred presidential choice said she was “gobsmacked” or utterly astonished by her loss to Donald Trump. “I went, into a frenzy of closet cleaning, and long walks in the woods, playing with my dogs, and, as I write—yoga, alternate nostril breathing, which I highly recommend, trying to calm myself down. And you know, my share of Chardonnay. It was a very hard transition. I really struggled,” she said. “I couldn’t feel, I couldn’t think. I was just gob-smacked, wiped out.”

Trying to find reasons for her loss, Clinton described her failing as a “perfect storm” of white people, misogyny, and Russians fighting against her. Although she does admit to her own mistakes, she also has plenty of blame for other people, including former FBI director James Comey and Senator Bernie Sanders.

After losing the election to Donald Trump she had a decision to make. Would she be attending the inauguration? Defeated candidates do not automatically attend Presidential inaugurations but Hillary Clinton was also a former first lady.

“But I’m a former first lady, and former presidents and first ladies show up,” she said. “And so there I was, on the platform, you know, feeling like an out-of-body experience. And then his speech, which was a cry from the white nationalist gut.”

“He was quite successful in referencing a nostalgia that would give hope, comfort, settle grievances, for millions of people who were upset about gains that were made by others.”

“Millions of white people,” Clinton said.

And then the Russians. “The forces that were at work in 2016 were unlike anything that I’ve ever seen or read about. It was a perfect storm,” Clinton said.

Artie Lange: “Pete Holmes Is The Best Comedy Partner I’ve Ever Had”

Filming for HBO’s “Crashing” season 2 is currently underway and comedian Pete Holmes has confirmed Artie Lange will continue to be a regular on the show.

“I play a very naïve character based on myself, I would say when I was 28,” said Holmes. “Then I meet Artie and I’m a guy who wants to get into comedy and Artie’s a guy who’s obviously in comedy and warns me about it, like the ghost of Christmas future. But then we kind of rub off on each other.”

In an interview, Pete talked about the “crashing” aspect of the show, which is supposed to be a reference to couch surfing. Holmes admitted that the concept of the show is not something that would last forever and stated that the show may only go on for two more seasons.

Crashing episode 6 is titled “Artie” which will deal with Artie’s personal problems including the drug issue. Lange admitted that things got a bit emotional in this “Crashing” season 2 episode.

Artie who is best known for being the abrasive unfiltered former comedian of The Howard Stern Show went on to say how much comedy has enlightened him to some liberal ideas.

“The town I grew up in north Jersey is eight miles from this progressive, unbelievable place, New York City. But it has the most closed-minded people about gays, racial stuff. And I’m proud that I became more enlightened than my friends by going into show business. You do meet a lot of interesting people that are more enlightened than you are in the world.”

“Most people who don’t take the leap into a creative world never even try to answer those questions,” Lange says, referring to the spiritual queries about faith and existence that often come up on Crashing. “They just let that all build up and they become my uncle Tony. And I’m trying not to do that.”

Artie & Anthony Show: New Podcast with Artie Lange and Anthony Cumia!

RadarOnline has published an article revealing that former Howard Stern Show co-host Artie Lange is joining The Anthony Cumia Show, sort of.

Artie Lange, who is now 50, is leaving his own “Artie Quitter Podcast” to team up with broadcaster Anthony Cumia, former host of “The Opie & Anthony Show.” Together the two will form the Artie & Anthony Show, a new podcast and live broadcast set to debut September 4th, 2017 on Compound Media.

The Artie & Anthony Show will run Monday through Thursday from 4-6PM EST live from New York City.

“Artie was basically offered too much money to walk away from,” reported RadarOnline. “And it was Anthony’s idea to place Artie’s name first. They’ve been friends for a while.”

Artie, who enjoyed a successful two-year run with his Artie Quitter Podcast called the possibility of working with Ant “really interesting.” “I’d be going from working with Judd Apatow and HBO, who could not be more liberal, to Cumia, who is a total outlaw conservative!”

Artie Lange: They called me a mama’s boy because I didn’t want to do coke in the 7th grade

Artie, who is turning 50 this year, opened up to a group of about 100 people at the Caroline’s On Broadway venue, where he recalled his drug-fueled medical crisis in July for the first time on stage.

“So this is exactly what my doctor said, with my Italian mother next to me. Alright, I’ll tell you, your son has an abscess right here next to his heart and it formed a reservoir. In the reservoir is a bunch of heroin and cocaine that formed a sludge. A sludge of heroin and cocaine. If you don’t get it out soon, he will be dead within a week.”

“Then my mother burst into tears. That’s what he said, he said the word sludge. That’s an example of living badly. I don’t want to hear that at 50 years old.”

Artie said he lives with constant regret that he began a sordid life of drugs and excess at such a young age.

“I’m 50. It’s been a rough 50 years. if I could do it all over again, I’d tell that kid, no,” he admitted. “I’d tell my middle school self, no I don’t want to do coke in the steam room. They used to call me a mama’s boy because I didn’t want to do coke on a Tuesday morning, 9 o’clock in the 7th grade.”

Howard Stern: Kid Rock Has A Good Chance Of Winning In Michigan Senate Race

Earlier this month, rock star Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, announced his bid for the US Senate seat in his home state of Michigan. The position is currently occupied by three-term Democrat Debbie Stabenow.

Kid Rock insists this is not a publicity stunt, noting his years of political activism in the Republican Party. Rock has been encouraged to run by emerging as the favorite in a new poll.

“I believe if you work your butt off and pay taxes, you should be able to easily understand and navigate the laws, tax codes, health care and anything else the government puts in place that affects us all,” said Rock.

Popular online political magazine “Politico” is urging their readers to take him seriously. Running the headline “Senator Kid Rock.”

So if you’re still not taking Kid Rock seriously, here’s why you should: His path to the U.S. Senate is far easier than Trump’s was to the White House.

“Presuming Kid Rock doesn’t get caught in bed with a little boy, or beat up a woman between now and August 2018, he’s going to win the nomination if he gets in,” says Dennis Lennox, a Republican political consultant in Michigan. “I think there’s no question about that. I think he’s the prohibitive favorite if he gets in.”

Howard Stern also likes Kid Rock’s chances.

“People laugh when they say Senator Kid Rock but he’d have a good chance of winning in Michigan. They have a very popular senator there that he’d be running against. She gets high marks. Kid Rock has been instrumental in so many charities. He actually is a pretty serious, high minded guy and a good guy,” said Stern.

It is not that uncommon for an entertainer to reach high office. Prior to winning the presidency in 1980, Ronald Reagan, a former Hollywood actor, became Governor of California in 1967 with no past political experience.

In 1998, actor and professional wrestler Jesse Ventura was elected as Governor of Minnesota. In 2003, former bodybuilder and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger was elected as Governor of California.

In the Senate, former comedian and Saturday Night Live writer Al Franken has represented Minnesota since 2009, whom Howard Stern has supported throughout.

Netflix Documentary: Hulk Hogan, Howard Stern, Donald Trump and Freedom of the Press

Netflix Documentary, NOBODY SPEAK: Trials of the Free Press was just recently released.

In 2015, Hulk Hogan sued the news website Gawker for posting a sex tape featuring him in bed with Heather Clem, then wife of his best friend, Bubba the Love Sponge. The jury awarded Hogan $140 million in damages which forced Gawker to shut down. Last year, Gawker settled with Hulk aka Terry Bollea for $31 million.

Despite the ridiculous elements of the trial — seeing Hulk Hogan on the witness stand, dressed in all black, including his trademark bandana — it turned out to be a tremendously important First Amendment case. The trial was quintessentially American in its mix of absurdity and massive implications.

Details of the Gawker case read like something out of a Saturday Night Live sketch. Hogan reportedly knew he was being filmed, and he later joked about the tape to Howard Stern. Hogan bragged about his sexual performance to Stern but insisted that was a part of the character Hulk Hogan, not the real Terry Bollea, who was personally traumatized by the leak. Hulk was accused of being racist after the audio version of the sex tape came out – which very well may have negatively impacted his life and future employment opportunities.

During the trail, Michael Sullivan, Gawker’s lawyer played an audio clip in which Hogan is discussing the size of his penis while appearing as a guest on The Howard Stern Show.

Sullivan asked if there’s any doubt as to whether Hogan is referring to the length of his manhood.

“Well, it’s not mine, because mine isn’t that size, but we were discussing the length of Hulk Hogan’s.”

An exasperated and dumbfounded Sullivan only responded with one word. “Seriously?”

“No, seriously, I do not have a 10-inch penis. No, I do not. Seriously. Believe that. Seriously,” Hogan responded.

The Hogan trial eventually bankrupted Gawker and its co-founder Nick Denton. So how could the Hulkster, who wasn’t exactly at his peak financially while all this was going down, possibly afford his expensive legal counsel?

Well, it turns out his legal expenses were bankrolled by tech mogul (PayPal founder), billionaire and Trump supporter Peter Thiel, who was outed by Gawker as being gay. Did Thiel use Hogan as revenge against Gawker? The new documentary Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press, currently streaming on Netflix, uses the Gawker lawsuit as its theoretical jumping-off point. It explores how the case is symptomatic of a much larger issue facing journalism. The documentary does cover Donald Trump in a negative light, portraying him as a threat to the status quo of journalism. Lambasting him for repeatedly taking about “fake news” during his rise to the presidency.
