I’m about to toss a turd into your Saturday punch bowl.
Idol producers are reportedly “eager to hire” Howard Stern to take over as resident asshole when Simon Cowell leaves American Idol after this season.
Stern’s $100 million a year contract with Sirius expires next January. As hard as it is to believe he gets paid that much to talk shit on satellite radio, it’s even harder to believe that taking the Idol post would be a step down in the salary brackets; Cowell only got paid $50 million a year.
All of this information is coming via an “inside source” who spoke to the New York Post— so take it with a grain of salt– but it doesn’t sound quite so far-fetched, does it?
Say it ain’t so!
