    Howard Stern Swears Stated Plans To Leave ‘America’s Got Talent’ Aren’t Negotiation Tactic –– Vows, ‘I Don’t Operate That Way!’
    AGT.jpg

    Howard Stern stressed that this season will be his last on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, and that his recent statements saying just that are not any type of negotiation ploy.

    The Private Parts star said on his Sirius radio show Monday that he was again addressing his status on the summer show in response to reports that were skeptical of his actual departure, thinking it was a way “to get money.

    “They were saying it’s a play on my part, a negotiation,” the Butt Bongo Fiesta star said. “They think that that’s my M.O. — like even my negotiation with Sirius, [reporters say,] ‘That’s what Howard does, he makes theater out of it blah blah blah …'”

    But the Miss America author said he was not flexible in his decision to depart the show after four seasons on the panel of judges.

    “That’s it, there’s no negotiating, I’m done with it, I’ve had enough,” the King of All Media told his listeners. “I assure you, I’m not waiting for some payday or something — I don’t operate that way.

    “I assure you, I’m not negotiating for more money — they paid me plenty of money to do that show, plenty — it was very, very generous of them. I actually think I got paid what I was worth.”

    Stern said he “thought long and hard about” the decision, and was swayed by the fact that he’s maintained “a very long exhausting schedule” after reducing his radio schedule five years ago “so [he] could have some free time.

    How do you negotiate with a show that doesn't want you back?

    Still working that 20 year old movie bullshit. "Private Parts Star", as if people know what the hell that even is! Who does his PR? They are awful. Must be Ralph or Ronnie.

    Seriously the guy's PR people are the best in the biz. Prevent the TV show from ever saying they never asked him back by claiming he opted out of returning. Money well spent.

    I love when they bring up the King of Phony Media's prior output. They jocked him as the "Miss America author" like it's supposed to mean something that he put out a homophobic bird cage liner 20 years ago.

    I don't think was negotiation. The AGT folks don't want to do the whole show in NY and Stern won't go to CA.

    He was one of the top 10 paid entertainers this year. He doesn't need the money - unless he gets divorced.

    "Star of Butt Bongo Fiesta"????? That's a reference his AGT audience is sure to understand.

    I wouldn't be surprised if both howies are gone next season.
    They need a younger 3rd judge to bring in a younger demo

    I can't stop laughing at how dated and irrelevant this puff piece is. "the star of Butt Bongo Fiesta."
    Yeah, he starred in a soft core porno VHS tape in 1992. Holy shit! the star of Butt Bongo Fiesta!

    And the wackos cone out.....pretty sure he's not doing it. It's not because they don't want him back or they would have booted him long ago. I don't think they cared either way. This way they can go back to LA
