Wendy Williams dissed Howard Stern for his “Hollywood insider” status on Wednesday, a label the SiriusXM radio host didn’t take too kindly to and called her a “f–king bug-eyed c–t” in return.
The back-and-forth started when Williams brought up Stern’s upcoming book, “Howard Stern Comes Again” — his first new title in over 20 years — on “The Wendy Williams Show.”
“Howard is so Hollywood right now,” Williams said on her show yesterday. “And Howard, I love you. but since you’ve gone Hollywood, everything you say is so predictable. Every story is gonna be about, you know ‘Oh, I love this one and then we went on their yacht.'”
“He’s a Hollywood insider now, which sucks because you started like me, being of the people,” she continued. “But at some point, you sat behind that microphone for too long.”
“It hurts,” Williams said while also telling viewers they should buy Stern’s book.

Later that day, a caller notified Stern of the remarks during “The Howard Stern Show,” with the host saying, “Lemme hear this and I’m gonna say some s–t I’m gonna regret. I know it,” adding he’s got a “very thin skin.”
He then played the audio of Williams’ remarks, replying with this when he got to the “Hollywood insider” part: “What a c–t. What a f–king bug-eyed c–t. F–k you. You heard me. F–k off, c–t.”
Representatives for SiriusXM did not immediately respond to multiple requests for comment on Stern’s remarks, which you can listen to hear.
“The last time I had her in here she was giving me some god damn attitude with this Hollywood crap,” he continued. “Yeah, I’m a real Hollywood insider you should see the wild life I’m living. You got those big fake tits and I’m Hollywood, huh? Shut the fuck up.”
“‘Ah, he kisses everyone’s-‘ I’m not kissing your ass now, c–t face. What the f–k’s wrong with her? Broad doesn’t have an original thought in her god damn head. Busy being Howard Stern?… You mean because I’ve had success I’m Hollywood? What cause’ I know Jimmy Kimmel? That’s real Hollywood. Who am I hanging out with? She doesn’t know even who I’m hanging out with. She doesn’t know what I do with my life. She doesn’t know who I hang with.”
“Worry about your husband, not me. F–k off! I’m sick of her and her bulls–t show.”
He also calls her a “cow” and a “broad-faced bitch” and asks if she has a “d–k” and whether or not she was “born a woman or a man.”
“You know what, I’ve been very gracious to her, you know?” Stern said. “When she was going around calling herself ‘queen of all media.’ That was very original. I can’t tell you how original that was, ‘the queen of all media.'”
“She just ruined my day,” he added. “That’s why I put out a book, so she could knock me. Jealous bitch. You’ll never be me, Wendy. You’ll never be me. You can pretend to be me, you can pretend to be like me — but you’re not. You’re never gonna be me. You don’t have my wit and you don’t have my talent. That’s it, that’s the end of the story.”
Stern also said he’d “f–k RuPaul before [he’d] f–k her.”
Later Wednesday, Williams wrote the following on Twitter: “Showed love to Howard Stern this morning about his new book. Gonna buy it. Had his wife on my show several times. Being told that he’s being nasty to me on his show. It’s all good, Howie. I still admire you old man! The truth is the truth.”
