Jonah Hill has discussed his use of a homophobic slur with Howard Stern, describing it as "heartbreaking." But will it damage the actor's reputation?
Uh oh, Jonah Hill’s really put his foot in it. Lately he’s been riding high off his superb performance in The Wolf of Wall Street and is widely considered to be an “all round nice guy.” This perception of him is even parodied in the film This is the End, in which the actors all play exaggerated versions of themselves.

The 60 year-old radio personality feels the future host of the 'Late Show' may regret changing career paths: "I wonder if he'll be happy in that slot."
So far the decision to have Stephen Colbert as the new host of the 'Late-Show' has been met with praise, even from the likes of other talk-show stars such as Conan O'Brien.
But not everyone in show-business is happy with the 49 year-old funnyman leaving Comedy Central's 'The Colbert Report' to replace David Letterman, who will retire in 2015.
The notorious radio personality, Howard Stern, recently expressed his view on Colbert's future job, stating that he could be making a mistake.

Molner, sitting in the crowd, immediately called out "Yes!" and attracted Stern's attention. Stern questioned the banker a number of times on "What's it like to make love to America's sweetheart?" Molner attempted to avoid the question by claiming the two would only comsumate their relationship on their wedding night. However, Stern did not let the matter drop and finally Molner admitted "Making love to America's sweetheart is amazing!"

The Briton and the shock-jock were placed at joint top in Forbes' annual countdown of the 'Highest-Paid TV Personalities'
What do Simon Cowell and Howard Stern both have in common? They're both dirty, stinking rich; that's what and according to the latest figures, they're both about $95 million richer than they were this time last year. According to Forbes' annual countdown of the 'Highest-Paid TV Personalities,' Cowell and Stern are joint top of this year's list, earning $5 million short of $100,000,000 in the space of the last twelve months.
Cowell has made million through his countless business ventures

Dismal ratings all round this week.
The reality singing competition landscape is changing and Heidi Klum’s appointment to the America’s Got Talent judging panel is probably the starkest proof. But with televised talent contests floundering left and right, what made the successful model and entrepreneur decide to branch out of fashion? Apparently, Ms Klum wants to share her experience and the business strategies that got her to where she is now. Even her occasional nuggets of wisdom during AGM’s premiere last Tuesday however, couldn’t help the show keep its head above the water.
America’s Got Talent saw some of its lowest ratings for a season opener this week - down 16% among Adults 18-49 from last year’s Season 7 premiere on May 14, 2012. according to Deadline. Still, it did see a mild increase in viewership from last season’s opening numbers – and we do mean very mild, with just 6% up to 11.102 million watching. Obviously, something is a miss. It should be pointed out that, however low the ratings were, America’s Got Talent was still the most watched program of the night. However, even with the addition of Klum and Mel B to the judging panel – which this year also includes vets Howard Stern and Howie Mandel – AGM is struggling to make up for lost ratings.
AGM’s competitor, The Voice, also took a beating this week. The 8 PM show slipped 6% from its live original at 9 PM last week to hit a Tuesday results show low. NBC still managed to take the night in terms of ratings, but it’s obviously an uphill battle at this point. And with the original reality talent competition – American Idol – having just capped off its worst ratings season yet – it’s becoming increasingly clear that the talent shows are fighting a lost war at this point. With or without the drastic lineup changes, the future is looking bleak.

Howard Stern claims Jimmy Fallon's salary is "about a tenth" of his own.
Howard Stern has reacted explosively to rumors he is set to take over from Jimmy Fallon in the late night slot on NBC. A New York Post report claimed that network executives are "grooming" the shock jock for the 12.3am time slot, should Fallon take over The Tonight Show from Jay Leno, whose contract is up in 2014.
However, Stern - the highest paid entertainer in radio - said on his show, "First of all, what an insult. Like, all the years of my career. I'm like, the biggest guy in radio. I've done film. I've done television. I mean, they act like I'm some kind of f--king beginner or something. Maybe if I'm really nice to NBC they'll let me take over Carson Daly's show at like 2 o'clock in the morning," Stern sarcastically quipped.
The comments appear to suggest there's absolutely no chance Stern will be replacing Fallon, though it was considered a surprise when he agreed to be a judge on America's Got Talent. Furthermore, the Post quoted his wife Beth as saying, "He is one of the best interviewers out there," when quizzed on the possibility of her husband taking the job.

Howard Stern to replace Jimmy Fallon in the chat show merry-go-round?
Is it a foot-in-mouth, if Howard Stern does it?
Maybe not, since it is pretty much the shock jock’s job to offend people, but the rare occasion has come when Howard Stern himself has apologized, NY Daily News reports. Well, sort of. After Stern called Girls creator Lena Dunham a “little fat chick” in one of his radio rants, he later had this to add: “I felt bad because I really do love the show Girls," he said on air Monday (January 14). "I admire the girl who writes it. It makes me feel bad, and I think she is getting the impression that I somehow think she's just a talentless little fat chick.” Wonder how people got that idea.
To her credit, Dunham’s response to Stern’s trolling was quite gracious: "I think Howard Stern's really earned the right to freedom of speech," she told the Daily News' [email protected] column at the "Girls" second-season premiere event. After her success at the Golden Globes, Dunham can certainly afford to be noble, and it’s made Stern alter his words as well: "Good for her. It's hard for little fat chicks to get anything going." What, did anyone actually expect Howard Stern to be nice?
Howard Stern, to his credit, has really tried to make things better after insulting Girls creator, Lena Dunham. Unfortunately, and to his discredit, the things he said were pretty awful, and almost impossible to come back from.
Stern called Dunham "a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill" and that watching the her multi-award winning (most recently Golden Globe winning) show Girls, "feels like a rape" adding "I don't want to see that." Now, that's nasty stuff whatever the context, but he's picked up his shovel named contrition and started digging for light. "I felt bad because I really do love the show 'Girls,' and enjoy it, and I admire the girl who writes it," Stern said of Dunham on Monday. "It makes me feel bad, and I think she is getting the impression that I somehow think she's just a talentless little fat chick."
We can't really speak for Dunham, she does that for herself in her interviews, and via Girls which, again, has wowed critics and fans alike, winning loads of awards on the way. We can, however, suggest to Stern, that if he doesn't want people to get the impression he thinks they're talentless little fat chicks, then he shouldn't call them little fat chicks. It's easy. Really easy stuff. Dunham, clearly unperturbed by his comments, told Letterman, "It put me in the best mood! I just want to be like, my gravestone says, 'She was a little fat chick and she got it going.'"
Howard Stern has used his shock-jock tactics so many times on his radio show that, surely, we should all have long since ceased to be getting shocked by him. However, he was at it once again recently, dissing the recent Golden Globe-winning HBO show Girls, and calling its star Lena Dunham a “fat little girl”.
'It's a little fat girl who kinda looks like Jonah Hill and she keeps taking her clothes off and it kind of feels like rape. She seems - it's like - I don't want to see that,' Stern said, according to the Daily Mail. “I learned that this little fat chick writes the show and directs the show and that makes sense to me because she's such a camera hog that the other characters barely are on” he continued, boringly. “My opinion, if I was a producer on that, I'd say, 'Honey, you're a little too close to the project. You need to allow the other characters to breathe a little and let us get invested in them,' he added whilst the world checked their watch. “Good for her. It's hard for little fat chicks to get anything going.”
Dunham took it very well indeed, telling David Letterman “I did find out that Howard Stern really hates [Girls]. I'm a Howard Stern fan, and really think he has earned the right to free speech and he should just go for it.” Continuing, she added 'But he did say something that is so funny that I wanna get it on my gravestone: 'Congrats to her (Dunham). It's so hard for little fat chicks to get anything going these days'. I want my gravestone to say, 'she was a little fat chick and she got it going'.” The actress has had plenty of support on Twitter in light of the comments, whilst celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson told Us Weekly “He’s, like, literally desensitized himself so much over the years. That guy doesn’t know what’s sexy. What is sexy is the way that Lena exposes herself, exposes her soul, wears her heart on her sleeves and is so freaking confident — that’s sexy.”
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.
While filming 'The Dukes of Hazzard', Johnny Knoxville and Jessica Simpson may have had a romantic interaction, according to a lie-detector test Knoxville took.
Johnny Knoxville has been accused of engaging in a relationship with Jessica Simpson, when the 'Jackass' star took a live lie-detector test while on-air for a radio interview on 3rd August 2005. Despite both the Simpson and Knoxville being married to other people, it has been rumoured for a long time that they had a relationship during filming for 'The Dukes of Hazzard'.
Knoxville was amazed by his arrival on Howard Stern's radio interview, when he was asked to take a lie detector test, with questions suddenly including whether or not he had sex with Simpson, before being asked if they had ever kissed, and finally if he had ever thought about her while he was "pleasuring himself".
