    Someone was asking about this awhile back and I just came across it....

    ...TOO MUCH INFORMATION...

    Sunday, May 29, 2005
    STORY: Say what?!?
    Sorry, about the long wait again, but LA left me kinda shook. And not just
    because I tried a new hairstyle…

    Or witnessed Hal Spark's disturbingly long tongue…

    Or met-up with my first real girlfriend, Kalle Dedolph, after eight years of
    radio silence…

    No sir, it was none of those things that left me rattled. In fact, the truth of
    what happened is far stranger than all three of those put together. You see, in
    addition to wanting to take my place on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the other
    reason why I'd gone out west was to be a an expert panelist for a show on G4TV
    called "Video Vixens."

    Anyway, I flew in Monday night, but before I'd even gotten to my hotel, the
    network called. It seems they've got a live show called "Attack of the Show" and
    tomorrow's guest, pro wrestler Chris Jericho, backed out at the last minute.
    They wanted me to take his place. They said I could even promote my blog if I
    wanted, but I thought it made more sense to plug FHM (the magazine I work for)
    instead.

    That night, I hung out with some friends, stole my star (see last post) and did
    my best to get some sleep. The next day, 4PM LA time, 7PM NYC, I walked on the
    set. They handed me the questions and I took my seat. Check out what happened
    next for yourself

    OK, were you watching closely? If you had, you would've noticed that I forgot to
    mention that the very lovely and very talented Beth O' was also a very
    successful model prior to her meeting Howard Stern. Anyone looking for proof of
    her skills need look no further than her show "Casino Cinema" on SpikeTV or her
    monthly column in FHM. Also, I think I might have just said no one would've
    known about her without the big man. I was nervous. Not good.

    That said, it went, er, well eneugh. Besides, what does it matter, no one
    watches G4, right? Wrong.

    The next morning I got a text message from my friend Ari back east. "Howard
    Stern must really hate you," it read. "What?" "I think he's talking about you on
    the air… he hasn't mentioned you by name, but I'm pretty sure it's you he's
    talking about."

    OH SHIT. I didn't actually hear what he said, and I still can't bring myself to
    listen to it, but I encourage you to.

    It was at this point that I put my first call in to Beth Ostrosky, a close
    personal friend of mine. She didn't answer, so I left a message: "Beth, I don't
    know if you saw G4 last night, but I'm going to save my apology—just tune in
    tonight, same time, same everything, I'm going to send you a message. I want you
    to know though, FHM isn't putting me up to this. This is something I WANT to do.
    I feel terrible."

    Next I called G4 who agreed to give me any and all the airtime I wanted. They
    even offered to set-up a podium for me to deliver my speech from.

    It wasn't until 10AM west coast time, 1PM NYC, that Scott Gramling, FHM's
    Editor-in-Chief, a man I've worked with for almost 6 years, called. He sounded
    strange. My mind was swimming, but the one thing I took away from our brief
    conversation was that I was not to, under any circumstances, go back on "Attack
    of the Show". He promised to call me again before the day was done.

    Then, at approximately 12PM west coast (3PM NYC) I tried to log into my FHM
    email. It wouldn't let me in.

    Even before I got the call I realized I'd been fired from a magazine I helped
    launch. I was barely old enough to drink when I first met Scott. I was the third
    employee behind him and our then Editor-in-Chief Ed Needham. Together, we'd put
    57 issues on newsstands (even counting my time at Men's Fitness, I've written
    for ever issue but three), plus several more in the can. And now it was done.

    Two hours later Scott left a message on my voice-mail asking that I call him.
    When I did, he told me it was over. I didn't argue. He said he had to "send a
    message that they don't take this kind of thing lightly." Then he told me how
    hard this was for him… he'd fought for me… and said goodbye.

    Later I left a final message for Beth. I told her I'd been fired, but I'd
    brought it on myself. I could separate the business from the personal, and
    personally, the thing that made me saddest was that I'd personally offended her.
    I hoped one day she'd forgive me.

    The next day, while taping the show I'd come out to do in the first place, I
    watched as my description changed several times in the teleprompter. Not wanting
    to be called "Jake from Road Rules" it went from "Jake Bronstein, Editor at
    Large of one of the fastest growing mens' magazines" to "writer and
    photographer" before finally landing on the suitably vague "Wild Man."

    Then I got a call from Beth. Sweet Beth. Kind Beth. Understanding Beth. She said
    she would've called sooner, but she was horrified when she heard I'd been fired.
    She said she wouldn't stand for it and that her and Howard would get my job
    back. But most importantly, she said she forgave me. I told her not to worry
    about it. I had done this. I was just happy she understood I'd meant no harm.

    But all of that got me thinking, if Beth hadn't called for my firing, who had?
    Who had Scott fought so hard against? And, with magazines taking almost three
    months to get to newsstands, why couldn't he hold them off for even a day? Who
    cares? Look at how tired and haggard I am. The time off will do me good. Oh
    here, take a card… they'll be collector's items soon.

    Actually, let me sign that for you.

    Really, don't worry about me. I'll be fine.

    Just give me a day or two to get my head back on straight and we'll be back to
    our regularly scheduled programming before you know it… Thanks for listening.
    You guys rock.

    I take "very successful model" very lightly.

    This is from the NY Post after his firing:

    HOWARD Stern really must be "The King of All Media." Just hours after he complained on-air about FHM editor-at-large Jake Bronstein's assertion that three-time FHM cover girl Beth Ostrosky is only famous because she dates Stern, Bronstein was fired. While he may have merely stated the obvious, Bronstein's mistake was uttering his appraisal of Ostrosky during an interview on cable channel G4TV's "Attack of the Show" last week. After noting that Ostrosky's covers outsell those of Halle Berry, Bronstein said, "Nobody knew who Beth Ostrosky was before she became Howard Stern's girlfriend . . . It was a good move on her part."

    That's what I thought too - seems like Howard and Beth should have been more ticked with the guy who was asking Jake the questions.

    Nah, they just didn't have a means to get him fired from G4 while it was pretty obvious Stern and O were in bed with FHM and thus had the power to fuck Jake up for his honesty.

    I don't believe you! Howard said he would never interfere with someone's right to earn a living.
    - Billy was asked to sign an indemnification waiver at KROC. Howard didn't interfere.
    - Stuttering John left to do Leno. Howard didn't interfere.
    - Jackie wanted a raise. Howard didn't interfere.
    - Artie said he wasn't on drugs. Howard didn't interfere.
    - Beth doesn't want to be famous. Howard didn't interfere.
