Wendy Williams & Howard Stern Make Amends After Months-Long Feud
First Charlemagne The God, now Howard Stern. After filing for divorce it seems that Wendy Williams has found her way back into the arms of a few formerly estranged friends.
In March Williams and radio host Howard Stern were enthralled in a nasty exchange after Williams labeled Stern “Hollywood,” citing that his notoriety had watered down his shock jock appeal.
Stern hit back at Wendy hard, calling her a “jealous b—,” all in the midst of Williams’ recent bout with addiction, along with rumors of a reported affair between her ex Kevin Hunter and his alleged mistress Sharina Hudson.
But as the cover star for the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, Stern opens up about the heated back and forth and expressed remorse over their disagreement.
“That was me at my worst. I thought she was saying that I was a piece of s–t and I sucked. But as [I hear it] now, I don’t see it as an offense at all,” he said. “If ‘Hollywood’ means that I’ve evolved in some way and the show has changed, then yeah, she hit the nail on the head.”
On Monday, Williams said she was relieved to end the feud with her former mentor on the most recent episode of her hit talk show.
“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,” she continued.
“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!”
