Howard Stern on Jimmy Kimmel Live

“I was born in Bay Ridge. I grew up in Mill Basin. Tonight, I have returned to save my people from the storm,” Kimmel kicked off his monologue. “Thank you for ignoring the local authorities to be here tonight for our first show…Mayor Bloomberg will be here shortly to have you arrested.”

There were no working stoplights anywhere in New York City on Tuesday, but Ronnie the Limo Driver managed to navigate the watery thruways and deliver Howard Stern safely to Jimmy Kimmel’s set in Brooklyn. Howard played the full clip of his “JKL” appearance on Wednesday morning’s Stern Show, and then launched into about Kimmel’s entire family showing up to hang out in his dressing room while he was trying to prepare for the show.

Hulk Hogan settles lawsuit against BTLS

After settling the sex tape lawsuit with Hulk Hogan, Bubba Clem offers a formal apology:

“After further investigation, I am now convinced that Hulk Hogan was unaware of the presence of the recording device in my bedroom. I am convinced that he had no knowledge that he was being taped. Additionally, I am certain that he had no role in the release of the video. It is my belief that Terry is not involved, and has not ever been involved, in trying to release the video, or exploit it, or otherwise gain from the video’s release in any way.

Regrettably, when Hulk filed the lawsuit against me, I instinctively went on the offensive. The things that I said about him and his children were not true. I was wrong and I am deeply sorry for my reaction, and for the additional pain it cause Hulk and his children on top of the pain that they were already feeling from having learned that Terry was taped without his knowledge, and the public release of the video.

I am committed to helping Hulk and his attorneys find whoever is responsible for the release of the tape and holding them accountable to the fullest extent of the law.

Sincerely, Bubba Clem”

Jay Thomas calls Romney/Ryan White Idiots

Howard 101 host Jay Thomas on Current TV:

He’s a gosh-darn guy. He doesn’t drink. The other guy’s a big Catholic. I mean, I can’t believe we’re talking the 21st century and these two white idiots are running for something. I just think it looks like 1955.

These are the most un-modern people I’ve ever seen. They’re medieval, almost. They don’t believe in abortion. They like gay people, but they don’t want them to get together. It’s really odd. I just believe that Barack Obama looks like the future of the United States, I’ve always said.

I just don’t know that the people that he really can help are going to get out in the number to vote, and I’m really worried, and I feel right now that Mitt Romney has a really good chance of winning the election.

You want to almost shake people to go, look, all of the people that the Republican guys say they hate, the ones that need, you know, entitlements or whatever, I’m afraid you’re not going to get out and vote and you’re going to get your ass kicked by these two idiot white guys.

CNN: Mel Karmazin out is Howard Stern next?

Sirius XM is looking for a new CEO. Will they have to soon start searching for a new King of All Media shock jock as well?

The departure of Mel Karmazin from Sirius is a bit of a surprise, but not a huge shock. By all accounts, Karmazin was not meshing well with Liberty Media chairman John Malone. Liberty Media (LMCA) helped rescue Sirius XM at the height of the financial panic in 2009 with an investment that some think saved Sirius XM from bankruptcy. But Malone has been seeking approval from the Federal Communications Commission to gain control of Sirius.

Karmazin isn’t the only one who’s unhappy though. Howard Stern, the biggest star for the satellite radio company, has a contract that runs out in 2015. And he’s been voicing displeasure lately about his life at Sirius. Stern said on Monday’s show that he was “miserable” and “would be happier if he quit work.” Stern was also quoted as saying that he might look to leave his contract early.

“I’m miserable,” said Stern. “I just want to tear someone’s head off…I think I’d be happier if I quit work. I think my agent said to me even though I have a five year deal here, that after the third year I could actually leave….I think I want to leave…I have to do this year and then I could get the fuck out of here…I want out.”

Now of course, this may just be a case of Stern using the airwaves to try and push for better terms in a new contract. Stern has used this negotiating ploy many times before and wound up signing a new 5-year deal with Sirius XM in 2010.

“There is an issue with Howard. But there’s always an issue with Howard,” said John Tinker, an analyst with Maxim Group.

A spokesman for Sirius XM declined comment. Still, investors may need to be a little concerned that Stern could be, uhh, serious about leaving Sirius this time around. Karamzin famously hired Stern for Infinity Radio, now owned by CBS (CBS) in the mid-1980s after Stern was fired by NBC. The two have been inseparable since, with Karmazin agreeing to join Sirius XM shortly after Stern did in 2004.

Ronnie hosts Rick’s Cabaret 7th Anniversary

Formerly known as Scores, now famous for its beautiful showgirls and gourmet steakhousey, Rick’s Cabaret had a number of events commemorating its 7th anniversary in New York.

Howard Stern Show’s Sal Governale and Ronnie Mund were special guest hosts at one of the parties.

“I love all the Rick’s clubs, and Rick’s Cabaret New York is really amazing. The party was awesome,” said Ronnie the Limo Driver. “Rick’s Cabaret has so many incredibly hot girls,” said Sal the Stockbroker. “It’s like Disneyland for adult men.”

Hulk Hogan rejects Howard Stern’s invitation

Hulk Hogan doesn’t want or need Howard Stern to act as peacemaker in his ongoing sex-tape litigation with former best friend Bubba the Love Sponge Clem.

Hogans lawyer declined an invitation from Stern to have the wrestling star and Bubba together on his popular SiriusXM radio show so Stern could talk Hogan into dropping his invasion-of-privacy lawsuit against the Tampa shock jock and his ex-wife Heather Clem.

“Absolutely not. It’s not going to happen,” Hogan’s lawyer David Houston said. “I appreciate Howard Stern’s offer. I know it has entertainment value, but this isn’t entertainment. We’re dealing with some drastic consequences in my client’s life.”

Houston added that a settlement with the Clems might be possible in the future, but that Bubba and his legal team failed to provide satisfactory answers about the tape’s origins and security leading up to their legal filing Monday.

“We appreciate Howard Sterns’ recommendation and insight, and certainly resolution is never anything to be avoided if a settlement is possible. However, under the current situation, we have a client who has been damaged, and as such, we have to pursue our legal remedies until we arrive at a point where we truly understand the actions of all players,” Houston said.

“Once that happens, the idea of resolution is never off the table,” he said.

Heather Clem caught on tape with multiple men?

Hulk Hogan isn’t the only guy who was caught on tape with Bubba the Love Sponge’s former wife … TMZ has learned there are multiple tapes … with multiple men … in the same exact bed.

TMZ has seen three additional sex tapes featuring Heather Clem with other men — shot while she was married to Bubba — and in one of the tapes, she even walks up to the camera to double-check that it’s recording.

In the footage, she tells her mystery partner — neither Bubba nor Hulk — “Is this thing recording? Okay, not that I don’t trust you but I will get in trouble if it doesn’t.”

The insinuation — Heather and Bubba had some kind of agreement in which Heather was allowed to screw other men … as long as she recorded it.

As for the other two new tapes — they were both shot in the exact same style as the Hulk tape … in Bubba’s bedroom with an overhead surveillance-type camera. It’s unclear if the two men in those tapes knew if they were being recorded.

But as we previously reported, both Bubba AND Heather were aware of the surveillance camera set-up in the bedroom — and were captured on tape joking about selling the Hogan footage for big money.

TMZ reached out to Heather and Bubba for comment — no word back.

Howard Stern: Hogan drop the lawsuit against Bubba the Love Sponge

Howard Stern wants the lawsuit against Bubba the Love Sponge dropped, saying that Hulk Hogan knew a sex tape was being made with Heather Clem.

“I’m getting you out of this lawsuit,” Stern told Bubba Clem on his SiriusXM show Wednesday.

“I will get Hogan and Bubba together. I think what Bubba is saying is making a lot of sense. I think if Hogan could hear it and I can translate a little bit and calm everyone down, I think we could see through this …I think I can get Hulk Hogan to take you out of this lawsuit.”

However, Hogan and his legal team disagrees. One of Hogan’s lawyers, David Houston told the Daily News:

“This is not the Bubba Show, it’s litigation. Thanks to Bubba for making our case against him better. We look forward to seeing him in court. At that time it will not be a runaway rant. His time is coming.”

Hogan and Bubba the Love Sponge have been battling it out ever since it was revealed that he not only knew about the sex tape with Heather Clem, but he had also taped himself saying it would be worth big bucks. Since they are no longer friends, Bubba has been calling Hogan a “hypocritical fraud” on the radio. He insists he is innocent, although the voice on the videotape proves otherwise.
