Howard Stern has had quite a few B-plus and A-List guests these past few weeks. Ben Stiller and Jimmy Kimmel turned up on the Howard Stern show this morning. The most cringe worthy moment came when Stern jocularly kidded Stiller about the fact that his wife, Christine Taylor, once had a relationship with the openly gay Neil Patrick Harris. One of the most brutal moments in radio, this. But Stiller, a true pro, brushed off the on-air taunt clearly calculated to rasp.
Jimmy Kimmel, who was on earlier in the program, discussed the weekend he spent at Stern's cavernous, 16,000 sq.foot Hampton's home. That, and surviving after breaking up in March with Sarah Silverman. From HowardStern/RunDown:
"Jimmy Kimmell stopped by to hang out and discuss the weekend he and his cousin Sal spent at Howard's house in the Hamptons. Howard said he had problems sleeping when Jimmy stayed over because he didn't want Jimmy to wake up in the night and not have any way to entertain himself: 'I was up a 5am walking around.' Jimmy laughed at Howard's regimented lifestyle: 'Everything is very well-scheduled.'
Howard asked Jimmy to repeat the fuzzy story behind his break-up with Sarah Silverman, so Jimmy confessed he couldn't remember what he'd said over the weekend .. Robin asked if Sarah broke up with Jimmy both times, and Jimmy clarified: 'I broke up with her the first time. She broke up with me the second time.' Howard wondered if they were always more 'in like' with each other instead of 'in love,' but Jimmy shrugged: 'I guess so, yeah. She decided that.' Howard asked if Jimmy would have Sarah on his show now, but Jimmy didn’t think so: 'Not right now. Eventually, maybe' ..
"Artie said he was still bitter about Jimmy's toast at Howard's wedding: '[That pissed me off. I didn't know anyone else funny was going to speak...and then Jimmy gets up and kills and I have to follow Jimmy.' Jimmy laughed that he was more upset with Chevy Chase's toast: 'Why is everyone pretending that was a nice speech? He doesn't really listen to the show. He just thinks, 'This is Howard Stern's wedding. I should say 'cock' and 'penis' as much as possible.'"
That was, of course, the same wedding where Sarah Silverman smoked weed.
