I know, this is REALLY late to be posting about, but I've been thinking about this for a while and have been wanting to share and get opinions from ppl who are also former fans. First of all, Stern is DEFINITELY friends with Richard Johnston. If you search his name and Stern's and images, they even seem to socialize personally. So, pg 6 did NOT print anything without Stern giving the greenlight. So, why did they print that story on Marci Turk being responsible for Stern's PC transformation? So, what happened? Basically, his neurotic, Ames catalog model wife (who literally makes up stories about fashion shoots in Europe, despite no pictures of such campaigns existing)-- who has been getting more and more neuritic as her biological clock ticks away and is now just about past any chance of child bearing-- can't stop going on the internet, where the first result that comes up for her name on google is a parody "Beth Fan Page" that rips into her and probably makes her literally cry. Thus Stern, seeking to take some of the rage from his REAL fans away from his whore wife, dumps this little piece of info to pg 6. in the hope of getting the "blame" for his "transformation" moved to this Marci Turk woman from his neurotic catalog wife. Basically, he was trying to take some of the fan hatred away from her as the "Yoko" of the show and put it onto Turk, who he pays. And THEN, Stern can always deny having leaked the story, blame it on a "disgruntled employee" as he did, and since Turk has no "twitter" or "instagram," it made sense for Stern, who probably found his wife crying over the internet. All that stuff about her "not listening to the show" is also BULLSHIT. Typical, passive-aggressive Stern move. However, I DO NOT think that the NyPost Emily Stern interview was sanctioned by Stern. I think the Post realizes that Stern no longer has any power left, is about to be totally off the airwaves, and thus it's safe to interview his daughter and print interviews where she rips him. What's he going to do, tel his 50,000 listeners (about 5,000 of whom are in NYC) to boycott the paper? Gunkey's career is OVER. and I LOVE IT. All his hypocrisy catching up to him, FINALLY!!! And NO ONE deserves it more, hypocrite howie!
