Earlier this week, former America’s Got Talent judge Howard Stern dissed AGT producer and judge Simon Cowell.
After Simon suggested that he had helped rescue judge Mel B from her marriage to Stephen Belafonte, Howard called Simon a liar on his Siriusxm satellite radio show. Mel filed for divorce from Belafonte last month, and has claimed he abused her over the course of their 10 year marriage.
Here are a few of Howard’s choice comments via The Sun newspaper:
“He jumped in and fought off her husband? I bet, a real man.
“He should jump off a cliff, f****** maniac, that guy is such a f****** douche bag.
“He’s no knight in shining armour unless you’re a hot chick and you’re in a marriage that I guess you want to get out of, and then he might jump in.
“He stepped in? He’s such a p****, he’s such a liar.
“What am I, an idiot? I can guarantee he didn’t save her but he’ll craft it that way. Just go and fix your floppy man t***.”
Howard then criticized Simon for starting a relationship with Lauren Silverman when she was married to his friend Andrew Silverman.
“He’s a regular knight in f****** shining armour.
“He’s the greatest, like when he jumped into steal that guys wife. He’s definitely up for his fellow man.
“He’s a regular moral compass. If Columbus had to rely on that compass, he would have never found America.
“He jumped in? B*******. He jumped in? That f****** douche bag.
“He didn’t jump in on anything, he’s just an opportunist.”
Well then. Maybe Howard is still angry after learning from the Sony hack that Simon wanted NBC to fire Howard from AGT so he could take his seat on the judges panel. As it turned out, Howard left the show after the 2015 summer season and Simon took his place in 2016.
In the meantime, Simon is back with fellow judges Mel B, Howie Mandel and Heidi Klum, along with new host Tyra Banks when AGT 2017 premieres on May 30. Check out the show’s new key art.
