Well, as I admitted, I never listened to his show on radio and didnt even know he had an HBO show.  My girls used to tell me that, but I never believed them.

Re: Anderson Cooper and Howard Stern Interview on CNN

I've  been a fan since his earliest days.  I listened to him on my commute to work every day.  I knew there was exceptional intelligence there along with his wild and crazy antics.

 

I missed the first half of that show last night and I'm going to hunt for it on demand.

Dont miss the first half, it was the better part and not all the commercials.  Yes, absolutely you wouldn’t get the real gist of the interview if you don’t see the first part.

Not crazy about either man, but interesting to know what drives people.

Though I find a lot of what he says objectionable it was never a question in my mind that he was intelligent. Most tormented souls are. I wish him well on his path to healing and don’t forget to buy his book!😉

I'm watching it now on YouTube.  Definitely an excellent conversation.

@LilacTree @VaBelle35 @ID2 @GenXmuse @Chicagosuburbangirl  I saw and heard the interview.  I am a fan of Howard, but I do not really think he has changed.  He used interview as a scheme to promote his book.  And Anderson spoke of his book as well.  Both are taken with themselves.

I felt exactly the same way you did.


I never liked Howard Stern, but this interview really showed a different side of him.

 

I enjoyed watching it.

When Private Parts (the movie) came out, he told everyone his radio personality was a character he was playing and the movie was his true self.

 

He keeps you guessing and it keeps you interested.
