I went to Howards website and this is what I found about today's show:

Howard brought up that he heard someone on Martha Stewart’s SIRIUS channel was badmouthing him for the way he supposedly caused Rachel Hunter to cancel her appearances. To get to the bottom of what was happening, Howard asked Gary to walk to Martha’s studio with a wireless mic so he could talk to the people who made the comments in question. However, Gary reported that when he got to Martha’s studio, he found that the people Howard wanted to speak to were no longer there.

I don't know if this is what bishopdog was referring to. I don't remember the girls mentioning Howard at all the last few days.

Default Howard Stern & Alexis Stewart

Thanks for the info, Sdrums

I don't think Howard dislikes Alexis. I think he just thinks she is bitchy. But that doesn't mean anything with him. If she is bitchy and honest, he's probably into it. If she is snotty though, I don't know. This is what was said originally about her, on one of Howard's rehearsal broadcasts (from Salon.com):

Howard: The other day on the air I said it was kind of hot that Martha Stewart's daughter was kind of "cunty." And, by the way, I don't consider that a curse word.

Robin [Quivers, Stern sidekick]: What?!

Howard: Every gay hairdresser in America says cunty.

Robin: Well, not everybody goes to gay hairdressers and hears that.

Howard: Oh, where would you go not to get a gay hairdresser? ... No, cunty means like, you know, bitchy, and in kind of a hot way. Like you walk down the hall and you run into Martha Stewart's daughter and she just shoots you a look like she doesn't know who you are ...

Robin: She looks through you!

Howard: She looks right through you. I saw her in a restaurant and she just kind of stares at you, and like gives you attitude. You would think she's the one who made all the money!

Artie [Lange, a show regular]: You know her nickname in high school was Cunty Stewart.

Robin: Everybody should just call her that. Cunty.

Apparently, an employee at Sirius (who wants to remain anonymous) sent Howard an email saying that Alexis was waiting for the elevator and saw Bubba the Love Sponge and then turned to her friend (Jennifer?) and said that those guys were disgusting, etc. So whoever overheard it, sent Howard an email about it.

He brought her up again later in his show and said something how she doesn't deserve her own radio show, etc.

At one point, Howard was attempting to tune into her show while on the air but didn't realize that her show didn't start until noon.

I missed Whatever today (usually I catch the replay at 11) so I don't know if they mentioned it on the show.

Listening to Howard today on the West Coast feed and 2 minutes into the show he mentions Alexis and how he got another email saying she was bad-mouthing Howard and his staff during her radio show.

So Howard can badmouth anyone, degrate woman, make fun of people on his show, but if someone makes a negative comment about him, he starts crying about it? That seems messed up to me. If you give it, you need to be able to take it.

Can someone explain to me the appeal of Howard Stern? People say he is a pioneer in the radio business, but because of what? I think the man is a pig, he has no regard for anyone, he constantly insults people including his staff. He makes people, especially woman, perform crude acts, all for a laugh. I am surprised he hasn't had his daughters come in so he can have them spanked by the robotic spanker. I think it is ridiculous that he is getting paid $500,000,000 to sit on his ass for 4 hours a day and talk into a microphone. I hope he at least gives some of his money to charity.

If you like him, more power to you, but can you explain to me what makes him so popular?

Sorry for the rant...

I can totally understand why a lot of people might be offended by Stern. I've listened to him off and on for about 12 years now and will admit that the guy can be funny. His biggest appeal for me would have to be how he calls celebrities out for their stupid, selfish behavior. For instance - yesterday when Rachel Hunter was supposed to come in for an interview and then abruptly decided she didn't want to. So Howard went on a long rant about her. When Lindsay Lohan was supposedly sick a few weeks ago and canceled her tv appearance on Regis and Kelly at the last minute (leaving them without a headline
guest), Regis and Kelly just sat there acting dumb, even though you could tell they were ticked off. Every other celebrity interviewer is either too awe-struck or too paralyzed by fear of the celebrity PR-machine to call them out.

I've thought a lot about the entire demeaning to women thing (esp. since I'm a woman) and have come to the conclusion that it still takes two to tango. Why do people point the finger at Howard when a girl comes in and takes her shirt off? I also point the finger at the woman who has decided to do that. Women have to take responsibility for their actions. As long as there are women out there who want to be exploited - there will be someone out there who lets them do it.

That said - whenever the bits on Howard get to be a bit much, I just turn the channel.

I agree with you 100% that if he is allowed to bad-mouth people, then he should have to take it as well. Even though I like Howard, I get a kick out of hearing someone like Alexis stand up to him. I hear some resentment in Howard's voice when he refers to Alexis and I can't necessarily blame him. He's spent years and years building a career in radio and here is someone who was just handed a talk show based on her mother's celebrity status. I like Alexis a lot but I can totally understand where Howard is coming from. Sort of like if you had toiled at a company for more than 20 years and had to advance on your own merits and then all of a sudden the boss's daughter swoops in takes the corner office.

Today's recap:
Today they talked a lot about connecting with your spouse or significant other. Again it was stressed that all that Alexis wants out of relationships (currently with Petey) is sex. She said all they do together is eat dinner and have sex, once they went grocery shopping together, but that got weird. She also mentioned that when she was married her and her husband lived in different place during the week and they only saw eachother on weekends. She said this worked for her and she seems happy in her relationship with Petey. Jennifer said that her and her husband connect by running errands together, like going to the mall and they like being with eachother and like being goofy.
The second hour was about sluts, the definition of a slut, what makes a woman a slut and why aren't men refered to as sluts. They took a lot of calls and got many different opinions.
It was a good show overall.

Welcome, december!

I agree with bishopdog on a lot of points about Howard. I think he is basically a really solid guy, but he is insecure (he says so himself) and very sensitive. He says exactly what he is thinking at any given time and despises hypocrisy. In a weird way, Alexis and Howard are very similar. However, I agree that Howard probably has an issue with how he worked his ass off to get there and Alexis got a free pass courtesy of mom. But that's not her fault and she's not claiming to be better than him, she is just saying he is disgusting, which, of course, he is. And I don't think Howard would disagree that his antics are disgusting a lot of the time. His potty humor is lame, but I like his honesty and I love when he calls celebrities out on their bullshit.

I also think that in the back of their Alexis and Howard's minds they are thinking that they shouldd milk this "feud" for all it is worth.

Petey is just for sex? Does he know this? Alexis sounds like she is probably a lonely soul.

When Alexis and Jennifer were talking about connecting to their significant others and it was made clear that Alexis doesn't really connect with any of her many significant others, was anybody else waiting for a caller to ask "Alexis, are you SURE you're straight?" Or was it just me? Even if you're not dating "the one" shouldn't there be some sort of connection -- other than sex. Maybe I'm beating a dead horse.

I hope I don't get in trouble, I read somewhere in the rules something about not making comments about sexual orientation--but I think they meant obscene comments. For being Sirius, they sure do have alot of rules.

Interesting point aloof2boot, I didn't think about that. She seems to connect very well with Jennifer, she can tell her anything. She doesn't talk a lot about her other friends male or female. Maybe she finds it easier to connect emotionally with woman, and physically with men. I think Jennifer mentioned yesterday Alexis' best friend is Kevin Sharkey-a gay man. Not to get too deep, but I think some of Alexis connecting with men "problems" stem from her broken relationship with her father. She brought him up last week and she got very emotional-almost crying, about something bad her father had written about her on one of her college entrance exams. She obviously has very negative feelings towards him. If daughters don't have good relationships with their fathers, it usually effects their relationships with other men.

On the Petey topic, Alexis says that Petey's radio was stolen, and that he doens't listen to the show. Jennifer also said that she doesn't think that Petey knows what is said on the show. I don't know how he could not know. Maybe he just ignores it.

Interesting about her father, so she finally shared more. We've been wondering what the problem is between the two of them.

I missed the show were Alexis talked about her father. Do they have any type of relationship at all or is he cut off from her?

Her mother doesn't have the greatest track record with men, either. I mean, she obviously did not have a great relationship with Alexis' father and who does she date now? The occasional rich dude, if anyone. I don't know what the deal is with Alexis and her dad, but it really doesn't sound like there was anything warm and fuzzy about growing up in the Stewart household. Who can blame Alexis for not wanting to reach out? It could be that she is dating men, when she maybe should be dating women, but she said she tried that, right? But she wasn't into it? I don't really know what she said about that. It could just be that intimacy in general makes her intensely uncomfortable and it's easier for her to do without it.
