Howard Stern Gets It

Howard Stern's smut filled radio show has made him a millionaire, many times over. The thing that makes Stern's show a decent listen, for me, is his abundance of plain old common sense.

Last week, his sidekick, Robin Quivers, was reading an item about "Heroes" star Hayden Panettiere complaining about being photographed. That set off a Stern rant, centering on how bad "Heroes" is and how the show is destined for cancellation. Stern added that when "Heroes" is gone, and Panettiere is yesterday's news, she'll be begging to be photographed. Panettiere is too young to appreciate how cruel and difficult show business can be. She's a little, shallow brat-- at least according to Howard.

The bottom line is that stardom does have its drawbacks, but it's better to be photographed, than not photographed. Be happy and thankful someone is interested in you.
