robin quivers has been battling cancer

Radio personality Robin Quivers revealed this morning on The Howard Stern Show that she has been battling uterine cancer for the past twelve months.

Quivers, 61, is shock jock Howard Stern's co-host on Sirius XM.  He has said on more than one occasion, "I'd quit radio if I ever lost her as a partner."

Howard told his audience a year ago when Quivers first left the show to seek treatment, "Doing a show without Robin is like cutting off my left arm.  Or my right arm.  Or maybe both.  She is my backbone, you understand."

"When I lose courage, Robin always has the courage.  She is always the brave one.  Always the brave one with me.  I can go to her, and I can always rely on her."

For the past year Robin has been doing her radio gig from home when she has been feeling well enough, after undergoing the removal of cancerous endometrial (uterine) tissue from several internal organs including her bladder, followed by a course of chemotherapy.

Stern had his doubts that his working partner would ever return to the studio.  He admitted this morning, "I gotta be honest, I thought she was a goner."

Robin reported this morning that her doctors believe that the year-long treatment worked and she is cancer free.  Stern said afterward that he still gets chills hearing her tell her story.

howard stern weighs in on david arquette

Howard Stern weighed in Wednesday night at an 'America's Got Talent' event about an on-air radio admission by David Arquette that he has fallen off the wagon after two years of sobriety.

The 41-year-old actor entered rehab in October 2011 in order to save his marriage with actress Courteney Cox.  They remain friends and business partners but she eventually filed for divorce and it was finalized in May 2013.  Their daughter Coco is 9.

Radio shock jock Stern acknowledged, "My feedback is that I love David Arquette.  He's a fantastic guy.  If you'd ever get to interview him or know him, he is the salt of the earth.  One of my favorite people in the world."

"And I trust that David is grownup and knows what he needs to do and that's what he conveyed to me.  Right now, whatever he's going through, I'm always there for him."

Monday Arquette phoned in to Stern's Sirius XM radio show and admitted, "I'm a drinker, so yes, I drink a lot."  When Howard asked him about pot, he replied, "Yeah, I smoke a little weed."

His reason for falling off the wagon?  David explained, "I've been sober for two years and four months.  I was feeling like I wasn't being that true to myself, like what I enjoy and this and that."

Arquette told his friend, "I'm afraid to be honest with you and with the world because people are so cruel to each other."

The lead photo was taken last night while David was partying at Hollywood hot spot Hooray Henry's with friends in a private booth.

highest paid tv personalities

Move over Oprah, because you have been relegated to fourth place on the 2013 Highest-Paid TV Personalities list released by Forbes.

In a tie for top spot are British entertainment mogul Simon Cowell and radio shock jock Howard Stern.  Each man earned a reported $95 million between June 2012 and June 2013.

Cowell began his domination in the reality competition business with 'American Idol' in 2002.  He also owns large stakes in the 'Got Talent' worldwide franchise and 'X Factor.'  In addition, the Brit is a talent scout who takes full credit for the careers of Leona Lewis and One Direction.

Fun Fact:  We recently learned that Simon had been engaged in a four-year affair with the wife of his friend next door.  Lauren Silverman is pregnant with Cowell's baby and her hubby Andrew Silverman has named the former 'Idol' judge a party in the couple's divorce action.

Stern left regular radio in 2006 after signing a mega deal at Sirius Satellite Radio.  In addition, he is judging 'America's Got Talent.'  He has been happily married to Beth Ostrosky Stern since 2008.

Glenn Beck landed at #3 with 90 million and Oprah came in at #4 with $77 million in earnings.

howard stern confirms hell be back

Radio shock jock Howard Stern told his listeners on Sirius XM this morning that he will return for a second season on the NBC reality talent show 'America's Got Talent.'

The outspoken judge pulled in $15 million last season and has negotiated a new contract that will have him back on the panel when the show airs as a summer series.

Sharon Osbourne has made it clear that she will not be returning to the show and comedian Howie Mandel is apparently still on the fence.

Stern isn't concerned about who ends up sitting beside him when the cameras roll.  In fact he suggested, "If I was the only judge, I think the show would be terrific.  You don't need the other judges, but all right, I gotta learn to play with others."

NBC's Paul Telegdy issued this statement, "Howard Stern's towering presence and opinions on last season's show as a new judge made a dramatic impact and added a sharper edge to the fascinating developments on state."

"We know that Howard believes in America's Got Talent -- which remains America's top-rated summer series -- and that dedication comes across in a genuine way to our viewers who share his passion about our amazing talent competition."

howard stern

Newly-minted America's Got Talent judge Howard Stern is struggling with his new duties leading to speculation that the shock jock is way out of his element.

Monday night Stern admitted that he made a mistake when he assumed he could handle the new job.  The revelation came after he got too harsh with seven-year-old Philadelphia rapper Mir Money.

Stern was not impressed with the little kid's act and hit his X buzzer button, causing the boy to sob.  The crowd booed and Howard vowed to do better.  He said, "I'll fix everything."

Stern hugged Mir Money, "I'm so sorry... You're a terrific young man. You are so brave. This job is too rough for me. I don't really want to do it anymore... I don't want to make you cry. I've met many great rappers and none of them are quite as great as you."

Host Nick Cannon carried the young boy offstage as Howard told the audience, "I'm not cut out for this, man. I'm not cut out for it. I'm shaking, man. I'm shaking... I can't do it. Radio is for me. I made a mistake. This is not for me."

The debacle is likely just the first of many and undoubtedly has NBC execs smiling broadly.  That is precisely why they hired a shock jock.  So far, so good.

chelsea handler and joan rivers

E! network stars Joan Rivers and Chelsea Handler are involved in a war of words and Howard Stern has been only to happy to keep the fire fueled.

Joan and daughter Melissa Rivers were recent guests on Howard's Sirius XM radio show.  The outspoken 78-year-old comedian took the opportunity to vent about Handler.

Rivers dished about CH's previous relationship with E! President Ted Harbert, "Number one, the girl made it on her back f**king the president, we all know that. Number two, she's fine, she's ordinary. She's not a genius."

She elaborated, "She's an ordinary girl that was f**king somebody high up in the industry and they gave her a break and she's doing okay."

Not long ago Stern hosted Handler, who came on the show to promote her new NBC sitcom Are You There, Chelsea? -- great planning Stern!

Getting right to it, Howard asked the popular comic what she thinks of the older comedian, "Joan Rivers? What the f**k do I care about Joan Rivers? I don't think about her ever."

How did this all start?  Joan claims it began at a network event where she tried to say hello to Handler and was given the cold shoulder.

According to Chelsea, "Joan Rivers gets up and she's like, 'I'd like to thank Chelsea Handler for giving me a career in comedy (mock laughing), and congratulations on your stage Chelsea because I don't even have a dressing room.' And I'm like, 'f**k off!'"

Joan managed to get in the last word, at least for now, "Who the f**k do you think you are?  Whatever she is, she's a drunk. I don't wish her good luck, I don't wish her bad luck.  I don't think she's particularly funny. But don't you come after me, you wh*re!"

Check out both nasty exchanges below:  Tell us what you think ... real deal or a publicity stunt?

howard stern americas got talent

Radio shock jock Howard Stern has signed on to replace Piers Morgan on America's Got Talent.  His larger-than-life personality will definitely bring a whole new dynamic to the broadcast.

When rumors first surfaced that Stern was at the top of NBC's list, the Parents Television Council thought he was to "raunchy' for prime-time.

Stern will hit the road in February for the audition phase of the competition but then it will be back to New York City for the live shows.  NBC and AGT have decided to change their production venue so that Stern is able to continue with his popular Sirius XM radio show.  Now that's some clout!

Morgan announced last month that he would be leaving the reality talent contest in order to concentrate on his CNN gig.

Will the barb-tongued Stern be a good fit alongside veteran judges Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne?  Feels like a genius move to us.  Your thoughts?

howard stern on jimmy fallon

Radio shock jock Howard Stern appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Thursday night and told show host Jimmy Fallon: "You know I hate doing talk shows.  In fact, this will be my last appearance anywhere ever because I've had it."

The audience gave Stern a collective groan and he turned on them too: "What do you care?"

Clearly in one of his moods, he sniped: "It's a lot of pressure to come out here.  What, I've got to prove myself to you? I mean come on, really."

Calling Jimmy's current job "cushy", he offer the host a bit of advice, "If they tell you they want to give you The Tonight Show, smack them in the head."

He claims that when Conan O'Brien was on The Tonight Show "nobody cared about the ratings."  He went on to suggest that all of that has changed: "You go on that show, suddenly they have high expectations.  Suddenly it's pressure.  What do you need that for?"

We're guessing Howard really hasn't sworn off late night television.  He was just doing what he does best...going for a little shock and awe.

Watch Stern with Jimmy below:

howard stern has the scoop on regis philbin firing

Howard Stern gives Letterman the scoop on Regis ...

Radio shock jock Howard Stern was a guest on Late Show with David Letterman February 3, 2011.  After fully trashing bandman Paul Shaffer, he dished about his neighbor "poor old Regis" and the fact that ABC fired him.

He told David Letterman: "Listen, I don't want the same thing happening to you that happened to Regis.  He got fired, he went in and asked for more money, and they gave poor old Regis the boot.  Regis should go on, and take a new show, and compete in that same time period and win.  Kick some ass!"

Regis Philbin, who will turn 80 in August, has managed to turn back the ravages of time thanks to the wonders of plastic surgery.  He and his wife Joy are both fans of various cosmetic procedures as evidences by our before and after photos.

Maurice Brighthaupt, a Miami firefighter and paramedic who worked as a bodyguard for Anna Nicole Smith, alleges that  Howard K. Stern supplied copious amounts of drugs to Anna in the months before she died of a drug overdose in 2007.

According to Brighthaupt's testimony in the Anna Nicole drug case, Stern and Anna's psychiatrist, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, feed Anna's addictions by providing her with an endless supply of pills. He also claims Anna would take up to 20 pills at a time, including Valium.

Brighthaupt claims Anna's drug use escalated after her son Daniel overdosed and died in September of 2006.

Stern, Dr. Eroshevich and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor all pled not guilty to conspiring to oversupply Anna with powerful opiates and sedatives.
