    Howard Stern wants to take your photo for a “wild†cause.

    The say-anything satellite radio host is auctioning off his budding picture-taking skills to a fan willing to cough up at least $20,000 for a private one-hour photo shoot, Examiner.com reports. While the going rate is steep, Stern is hiking up the price to benefit one of his favorite charities, the Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center, a nonprofit dedicated to rehabilitating wild animals.

    The winning bidder will get a consultation and quality hang out time with Stern, according to the center's site.
    “The America’s Got Talent†judge told the news outlet that he hopes someone with "deep pockets" will step up to support the organization.

    But those "deep-pocketed" bidders won’t have to worry about Stern delivering on his end of the deal.
    Back in June, Stern blasted “Entourage†actor Adrian Grenier on air after he backed out of hosting a charity gala just hours before the event.

    "A lot of celebrities agree to do something for a charity…And at the last minute they cancel, leaving the charity stranded," Stern said on his radio show. "I do lose respect for people when they do this. They always have a great excuse"

    Yeah, kinda like the year Howard and Beth crapped out on NSAL's DogCatemy awards because Beth had a botox mishap. Great excuse. :rolleyes:

    Pffffffft! For $20 G's one could hire Annie Leibovtz and still have change left over for a European cruise and lunch at Nobu's.

    Who would drop that kind of change on an amateur hack like Wiggy?

    Yes he did!

    Belzer told him off the air why, and if I recall correctly, wiggy thought it was a halfway acceptable excuse. Wonder what it was. :bigthink:

    Wouldn't be the first thread in the Wiggy Forum.

    I love how he used to give peopoe like Kathy Lee shit about this kind of charity stuff. Said they should just give money quietly if they really cared, and not make it about them. Bet he has the "winner" on the show and makes a big deal about it.

    jerk off :mad:
