The Gospel of Baba Booey
June 25th, 2019 under Howard Stern. [ Comments: none ]

Many decades ago, Gary Dell’Abate introduced the phrase Baba Booey on the Howard Stern Show. Since then, that phrase has made many newspeople’s lives hell. When a prankster calls into a news show, tells their fake story and then yells Baba Booey. That is when they everyone knows that they were punked.

As hellish as it has been for some, the New York City Gospel Choir found a way to make it heavenly. They took the melody from Oh, Happy Day and changed it to Baba Booey.

A song I would love to hear at many so-called churches, who say they preach the gospel of Jesus but spend the service preaching hate. Every time the clergyman (because you know those “places of worship” will not have a woman leading the sermon) preaches a falsity, the choir should break out into this version of the song. Hopefully, when the finally learn their lesson, then they can start singing the original song again. Who else thinks that is a divine idea?

When it comes to the Gospel of Baba Booey, am I the only person who cannot stop singing the hymn?


The shocking answer Robin Givens gave about sex with Howard Stern
June 10th, 2019 under Andy Cohen, Howard Stern, Robin Givens. [ Comments: 1 ]

Robin Givens was on Watch What Happens Live yesterday and Andy Cohen wanted to know if it is true that Howard Stern has a small penis. The Shock Jock has been very vocal about that, but is he lying to his listeners?

Since Givens dated him 20 years ago, she would know. What was her answer when she was asked about that? She said fondly, “Howard Stern was a magnificent lover!” Then she added that it was, “Unbelievable.”

Who would have thought? You would think, because of his on-air persona, he would be a selfish lover. Turns out he is far from it. I guess you cannot believe everything you hear on the radio.

Cohen kept pressing her about Stern’s microphone and all she would say, “It was all really good.” Proving it really is all about the motion of the ocean. At least for the DJ!


David Alan Grier thought no one would watch Seinfeld and Ace Ventura
January 28th, 2019 under David Alan Grier, Howard Stern. [ Comments: none ]

Many actors have turned down roles they have regretted. Others have auditioned for parts for things they never thought would see the light of day and they became huge hits. David Alan Grier has experienced both.

Back when he was working on In Living Color, Jim Carrey asked him to co-star in his little movie called Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and he turned it down. A short time later, he went to the premiere and watch the comedy next to his friend. Afterward, DAG thought no one is going to see this because it was just too crazy. Even Chris Rock agreed with him. As we know, both of them were way off.

That was not the only time he was way off. Grier told Howard Stern today, that he also auditioned for Seinfeld. During the tryout, he “thought this show is going to suck.” Thus, he did not care if he got the role of George Costanza that eventually went to Jason Alexander.

Once again he was wrong. One role he was right not to say no to was The Carmichael Show. One of the greatest shows ever to grace our televisions.

Imagine how different Grier’s career would have been if he did not turn down or laugh off all of these roles. Considering none of the stars of those projects did Dancing with the Stars, I think we have our answer.

BTW I wonder how he felt when he auditioned for his current show The Cool Kids. Which I like even though it had a really bad pilot.


Hugh Jackman was a crappy kids’ party clown
November 14th, 2018 under Howard Stern, Hugh Jackman. [ Comments: none ]

Before Hugh Jackman was P.T. Barnum in The Greatest Showman, he was just one of the clowns at the circus. Well, not a circus, but at children’s parties. When Howard Stern heard that, he wanted to know if the actor was any good at it.

Jackman was honest and said he was good at until the kids hit three years old. After that he was awful. In fact, he did a party for eight years olds and he was left with egg on his face. Literally, because the tykes threw eggs at him. Not only that, but they also kicked him when he was down. Again literally. Did he mind? Nope because the little ones were having fun.

When he was done with that party, he was done being a clown. He admits, he is a crappy one.

Hey Hollywood, are you listening? You need to make a movie about a down on his luck clown who works the party circuit. Think Bad Santa but with a clown.


David Letterman knew what Joaquin Phoenix was doing ahead of time
August 17th, 2017 under David Letterman, Howard Stern, Joaquin Phoenix. [ Comments: none ]

One of the most memorable interviews ever to happen on late night television was when Joaquin Phoenix went on The Late Show as his rap star alter ego and gave David Letterman his most awkward sit downs. Yesterday, when the TV host was on Howard Stern’s radio show the Shock Jock wanted to know if he knew that was going to happen. Letterman told him, “I knew what he was doing ahead of time.” Did he enjoy it? He said, “I did enjoy it because it was like getting your work in on the heavy bag. It was easy. It was batting practice.” And with that that whole moment was ruined.

But it does not stop there, Letterman also admitted that he knew Jerry Lawler was going to punch Andy Kaufman during that shocking confrontation. He revealed that the late brilliant comic always let him know what he was going to do on the show beforehand.

Just like wrestling, late night TV is fake and my bubble has been busted. I am so sad.

But what makes me happy is listening to the full interview where Letterman held nothing back about his life in late night television like how crazy the publicists are and so much more.
