Wendy Williams & Howard Stern Feud Over, Talk Show Host Admits She Was ‘Heartbroken’ Over Situation
The Wendy Williams vs Howard Stern war has officially ended! Howard was recently profiled in the latest issue of “The Hollywood Reporter” on his fiery rant about the recently divorced daytime diva. While mentioning his latest memoir, Wendy said Howard had “gone Hollywood.” She said:
“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 going to be about, ‘Oh, I love this one, and then we went on their yacht.’ He’s a Hollywood insider, which sucks.”
“Jealous b****. You’ll never be me. You can pretend to be me, but you’ll never be me. You don’t have my wit, and you don’t have my talent. That’s it. That’s the end of the story.”
Offended, Wendy Williams took to Twitter about Howard Stern’s clap-back:
Howard is now retracting his statements, saying he regrets his comments. He’s even removed the episode from his re-run syndication.
“That was me at my worst. I thought she was saying that I was a piece of shit and I sucked. But as [I hear it] now, I don’t see it as an offense at all. If ‘Hollywood’ means that I’ve evolved in some way and the show has changed, then yeah, she hit the nail on the head.”
In the latest episode of “The Wendy Williams Show,” she admitted that she was “heartbroken” by Howard Stern’s rant. She said:
“By the way, Howard, I read the article with you on the cover and I saw that you mentioned me and that you apologized. Howard, you know what, if you never apologized to me ever in your life, you would still be one of the most influential people in shaping my career. You and Oprah, that’s it.”
“The idea that you apologized, — he went on the air and ripped me a new one for no damn reason, because I knew I was right — then in this article, it was a thick article, he goes on to say that he loves me and that I might’ve seen something in him that maybe he didn’t see, or something like that. And, [he says] that he’s kind of embarrassed for ripping me on the air, so he’s pulled that from the archives. You’ll never hear that on repeat…I love him! And, my heart was so broken when he was fighting with me because I wasn’t fighting with him!”
