Howard Stern says he will get Hulk Hogan to drop the sex-tape lawsuit against his long-time friend Bubba The Love Sponge. Speaking to Mr Sponge on his SiriusXM show on Wednesday (October 17, 2012), Stern said, "I'm getting you out of this lawsuit."
Stern's sidekick Robin Quivers joked, "He also is going to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict," though Bubba seemed optimistic, saying, "That would be awesome." Former wrestler Hulk Hogan is suing his former friend after a sex-tape of himself with Bubba's ex-wife Heather Clem emerged on gossip site Gawker last week. Stern vowed, "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." Hogan's lawyer however, remained steadfast in his desire to take the case to court, telling the New York 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."
Before Stern takes on the case himself, he wanted further details of the tape, asking Bubba "Were the tapes made at your house?" to which his pal replied, "I don't know... I would be able to tell you more if I have seen these tapes." Don't worry Bubba, let your Uncle Howard sort the whole damn thing out.
