Howard Stern Not A Fan Of Precious Star Gabourey Sidibe

| Filed under: Film FlickersHoward Stern

Howard Stern showed no mercy for Gabourey Sidibe from Precious on his Sirius XM Radio show, ripping on the actress along with sidekick Robin Quivers.

Hate on Gabby all you want, but girlfriend is an Oscar nominee and she's just having a good time!

What do U think about Howard and Robin's comments?

    Re: Christie420 – here yah go honey…. CDC actually tracks this shit… shortens the life span does cause death at an early age … and PS: Chronic homelessness kills more individuals then chronic obesity

    Life expectancy of a moderately obese person could be shortened by 2 to 5 years.

    White men between 20 and 30 years old with a body mass index > 45 could shorten their life expectancy by 13 years.

    White women in the same category could lose up to 8 years of life.

    Young African American men with a body mass index > 45 could lose up to 20 years of life; African American women, up to 5.

    I love the people who try to defend this girl. She only got the nomination because the Academy was afraid that if they didn't, they would get shit about being "weightist". The girl is EXTREMELY unhealthy. No one is saying she should become like those disgusting Hills girls or anything…but when you outweigh a VW…time to do something about it. I agree with Howard.



  3. 303

    its the truth shes a beast



  4. 304

    Like he's one to talk. If you died his hair white and turned him over you could use him as a mop.



  5. 305

    People who listen to and agree with Howard Stern are just as low as he is. And that's pretty damned low. What a filthy, disgusting person. Robin is getting just about as bad. Making a living from hurting others is just plain wrong in my book.

    Re: redsonja1313 – You have no idea what youre talking about and it sucks that you've spewed your ignorance all over the comments section. The girl has already been picked up for a series on Showtime alongside Laura Linney and since when are all roles written for gorgeous people. You must work in McDonalds cause you have no idea what you're talking about. Fucking armchair critic!



  7. 307

    HOWARD IS ABSOLUTLEY CORRECT! I guarantee that you will see her in a Tyler Perry movie next and maybe some dumb T.V show & that's it!! If she wants work in Hollywood then, she must loose that damm weight! & Oprah knows that!, even Monique & Queen Latifah have lost some weight!



  8. 308

    Also, noticed how she wasn't included on that recent cover shoot for Vanity Fair. That wasn't a mistake!



  9. 309

    howard stern may have a point saying that she may have difficulties getting more roles but saying stuff like fat black chick is disgusting and racist. it is an issue when someone is overweight yes its bad for them to be obese but to insult them is disgusting and not helpful.



  10. 310

    Who cares what they say. So tasteless. Yes lots of people probably feel the same way they do but to say things like this on the air, yuck. They are only famous for talking shit on the radio. AT least shes showing her face theirs are hidden in the airways, as they should be ugly mofos.



  11. 311

    Give it up on this one. The only way she would have won was if she had eaten all of the other nominees. She sure looked like she had.



  12. 312

    In many ways he speaks the ugly truth - sad but true. Besides the cosmetic side of obesity, she is very unhealthy. Of course Oprah loves anyone fatter than her. If someone said to Oprah in the morning " give me 90 per cent of your money and I will make you stick thin with the capacity to eat what you like and stay stick thin forever" then Oprah would bite their hand off



  13. 313

    However, Howard has a face like a blind cobbler's thumb and while Gabourey can lose the weight he is stuck with his arse er I mean face or even farse



  14. 314

    Degenerate Stern is irrelevant as are his listeners. The bottom feeders of humanity.



  15. 315

    I really hope she gets some good roles. I wish her well. You know what will be amazing to become a real cinderella? loose some weigth, get healthy, get some manners and glamour, so she becomes a real sample of success in all ways possible.



  16. 316

    He does come off like an asshole, but sadly I kind of see what he means. Not about her having a one time career. Maybe, but she could land other roles, so who knows? But I really hope she loses weight just for health's sake. She is so young, so there is still time but that can't be good on your heart.



  17. 317

    howard stern is such an asshole. he better not become the next judge on american idol because that show will go DOWNHILL completely. ugly-ass.



  18. 318

    Oh dear.. hollywood gets on someone elses nuts every year.. remember roberto benigni ? the slumdog kids? come on mannnn



  19. 319

    Drop dead Howard!



  20. 320

    Re: VeganVal – Noone wants to pay $14 to see people that look like wal mart customers, sorry



  21. 321

    It's more a criticism of the movie industry in general than of Sidibe herself, & I'm sorry but not surprised that you're too dense to realize this.

    Introductory film classes will give you all kinds of statistics about the under-representation of minorities on screen. This isn't exactly new news! So don't act all offended on this one chick's behalf for something that's been going on for years.

  22. F18 says – reply to this


    322

    He is absolutely right. That's what a lot of us were thinking. She is gross and unhealthy, and full of stretch marks…..

    I certainly don't wanna see another movie like that. It was great, but one is enough :)



  23. 323

    It is true. While I was watching the Oscars, I thought to myself, "What the fuck is Oprah thinking?"



  24. 324

    he's a douche and really has no room to really talk about someone being talented he talks on the radio for godsake… omg so difficuly. The thing is she knows she's not the smallest person i doubt she needs it to be shoved in her face.



  25. 325

    even tho she might've had a brilliant performance in precious (idk, i didn't see it) it will be hard for her to get more roles other than similar ones if she doesn't lose weight. and honestly, she should. she's very big for her height and it's not healthy. i'm not saying it's right to make fun of her or call her a planet, but especially in hollywood it's going to be difficult for a young woman like herself to get leading roles as often as other actresses who are in shape. there will be some leniency, bc in all honesty, hollywood accepts overweight black woman more than overweight white women, but it will still be hard for her. i'm also not saying she has to get down to a size 2, just a normal weight for her height.



  26. 326

    Fucking awsome!



  27. 327

    I love how she corrects him when he pronounced her name wrong, but then later in the interview she goes oh "whatever Sidibe," then proceeds to correct him AGAIN. Gabourey deserved the nomination, what Oprah said was true. She came out of no where and was fantastic in her role. She's happy with the way she is, BUT yes it's extremely unhealthy. She'll find other roles, she was already cast on some show on showtime. And there will be more, because Oprah said so. Haha. But seriously, I'm sure there will be more out there for her.



  28. 328

    Howard does tell, what others are afraid to say …Of all the interviews, why did not one ask her how many calories she consumes in a day….we were all wondering..This was a opportunity to address the eating habits of America…It reminded me of the story "The Emporer's New Clothes"…Oprah was joyful standing next to Gabby, cause it made her look thin….I must say I did not see the Movie…I go to the movies to feel good and escapism…not to be depressed…so therefore….if I find myself in a manic happy mood…I just may watch it..



  29. 329

    THAT'S SO FUCKED UP ! IT'S TRUE BUT SO FUCKED UP ! I ALMOST FELT BAD LAUGHING ! almost…. lol ….



  30. 330

    this is awful and all of you people agreeing with Stern should be ashamed of yourselves. I have seen many interviews with Gabourey and she is a delightful person. No one deserves to be spoken about so harshly. Yes she is obese but does that mean she should have stayed home? She deserved to be there just as much as anyone else! Geez. Maybe her roles will be limited but that's what's wrong with Hollywood. Even if she lost 100 lbs her roles would still be limited because she's a black woman and even moreso because she's a darker black woman. To sit there and ridicule and laugh at this young woman is very childish and disrespectul. And to all of the people saying that she's very unhealthy. How do you know? Yes, being overweight could lead to health problems but no one here is her doctor. Most of the U.S is overweight unfortunately, so clearly its not just about wanting to lose the weight. A lot of you commenting need to lose weight. Why haven't you? Being even 10% overweight increases your chances of health issues. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones!



  31. 331

    This would have never happened if she were Jewish,LOL!
    Look in the mirror, Howard. Your wife only married you for money.
    You don't like it when people criticize your looks, so don't be a hypocrite.



  32. 332

    PS. I do hope Howard Stern is a judge on AI…cause if he is…the ratings will go through the roof, and I would watch it for the first time…just saying

    Re: tonybotz – HEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEEH HAR DEEE HAR HAR YOU'RE JUST A SIDE-SPLITER AREN'T YE? Oh it's YOU…the unenlightened jackfucklick! Someone needs to beat your ass down!!!! I'd love nothing better then to watch you get your fucking ass kicked by a fat black girl! I'm sure it could happen because you know you're a spineless ninny! xoxoxo



  35. 335

    Howard Stern and his idiot sidekick and the most ignorrant people…how dare they judge someone by their appearance. Their true ignorance makes them ugly!!!! They are a fucking joke.
    I have never commented on here before but feel I need to now as I was so upset over the stupidity. I can't believe what an enormous, inconsiderate asshole Howard Stern is. Who really cares about her appearance she had an amazing performance in this movie, something that he would never be able to do in his life. She is beautiful and talented. She was nominated for an Oscar….when was or will Howard Stern be nominated in his life other then ASSHOLE OF THE YEAR !

  38. 338

    Re: WIBonnie – You haven't listened to his show, so kindly go fuck off with the rest of your ultra-sensitive fat ugly broads that are on here bashing howard for saying something most of us sane and rational people agree with, and leave reality to us.



  39. 339

    well, if this isn't the pot calling the kettle black.



  40. 340

    lmfao!!! loved it



  41. 341

    Can someone tell me, how is he wrong?? He only said what everyone is thinking so shut it! Truth hurts!



  42. 342

    howard stern can SUCK IT!! he's a fucking ugly douche bag who should be put away because he's so ugly.. Gabourey was amazing in precious! at least she was nominated for an oscar… what the fuck have you done in your career, expect for making fun of other people?? its fucking disgusting! and that other lady that was talking was a fucking bitch too!!!!!



  43. 343

    I hope this girl gets some help. At that weight she is messing with her life. I don't know her so I won't judge her as a person…but I do hope she gets some help with her weight. This has nothing to do with being thin…just being healthy.



  44. 344

    Miracles do happen.



  45. 345

    Re: La Garse – and you do care what Rican31 thinks cuz you commented and then racially insulted him! you're a dick no matter how you look at it Perez, throw this bitch off .

    Re: LusciousLiz – Is that your stripper name?? ;)



  47. 347

    Freedom of Speech protects our words, but at what point do we take personal responsibility for the effect our words have on others. I'm really disappointed in Robin and her choice of words… come on, Robin! Really?!!



  48. 348

    Robin, as a Black woman, you know what we must endure. Seriously, you're an embarrassment. Maybe you never learned this code, but a Black woman must always encourage, support, and uplift another Black woman who is making moves to be at her best. Your thoughts on her longevity in the industry are fair, but the way you shared them really crossed the line. You were worse than Howard. You're an embarrassment.



  49. 349

    Re: JustJen2010 – Well said!



  50. 350

    That was just incredibly, irresponsibly rude to say about someone they really don't know shit about! They are real losers. It's not their business to assume that she will never work again in film - they don't fucking know that for sure! For old people to say that about a young woman like that is just wrong and sets a disasterous example for people who may look different than others. Prescious was a very moving and powerful film - the most powerful one I say out of all the other's nominated. Fuck them.



  51. 351

    We all know Howard is a douche. That's how he makes his money. *ahem* right, Perez?

    It's funny though, he is ugly as sin and his chicklet cohost was overweight and one time and his other cohost is quite obese (not nearly as Gabby, but stil quite obese) and a freakin alcoholic. They have no room to talk.



  52. 352

    Re: Bungle22
    "All he was saying was it will be tough for her to find roles. He's right. She better enjoy herself now, it won't last."
    -
    -
    It was the way he was saying it - cruel, rude, ignorant.
    P.S. She already has a role on a new Showtime series.



  53. 353

    It's so typical of people who believe they're celebrities themselves I mean if you asked Howard Stern if he felt like he was a celebrity he would say "yes" i'm sure but he isn't he isn't I mean how many celebrities are even what a celebrity should be. He is such a disgrace to people everywhere. I hope that he just does things like that for his radio show let me repeat radio show… just for ratings because no human being should ever feel comfortable with treating someone that way, and if they do there is no hope for them ever. I'm glad she made a fool of them by finding herself a new role so quickly. Thanks Perez for shedding light on this I hope Howard Stern reads it and realizes how many people read your blog (way more then people who listen to his radio show)

    354

    THIS MAN IS TRULY PATHETIC. NOTHING NEW… GABZ NEED TO DO HER AND DONT LISTEN TO THIS BITTER OLD PRICK.



  55. 355

    sometimes the truth is kinda mean, but its still the truth. When they showed her on camera, we were all wondering whether she was sitting on two seats. And I think Howard was being real. Just because Oprah had a similar struggle to Gabourey, doesn't mean all of America did. That's why Oprah's ratings are down. She's not really connecting with people anymore. It's more about her now and how she sees the world. Howard is right that Oprah is lying to her or using Gabourey to make a point. But Hollywood is not about that and Oprah of all people knows that.



  56. 356

    I don't really care what Howard says, that's his persona. But I mean Robin trying to rag on fat black chicks?! Did she forget she was a fat black chick? And old?! Gimme a break Robin you ugly fat hypocrite. Don't hate just cuz some fat black chick HAS talent and you don't.

  57. lolli says – reply to this


    357

    PEOPLE ARE JUST CRUEL, HES A GROWN MAN FOR GOD'S SAKE, ITS JUST SAD, BUT HES NO BRAD PITT, SO WHO THE FUCK IS HE TO TALK?



  58. 358

    howard stern is an asshole. everyone here comments on his issue with fat people, but what about his issue with blacks?



  59. 359

    Howard Stern is the meanest guy in the media and that Robin, who is perfect in white ass licking, is no better. I am European guy, but I am fascinated with Mo'Nique and Gabourney after I saw "Precious". While watching the Oscars I was only interested in what those 2 had to say. Mo'Nique is the greatest. Gaborney, don't take any notice of this Howard, who thinks he is God's gift to Earth. Howard - the most "handsome" guy on Earth - ha, ha, ha. He is an ugly dog.



  60. 360

    I know Howard Stern is a shit head but Robin is just ridiculous because SHES AN ENORMOUS BLACK CHICK!!!!! I JUST DON'T GET IT I KNOW WE HAVE TO ALL DO THINGS SO WE DON'T LOSE OUR JOB BUT ROBIN STOP GAGGING ON HOWARD'S DICK



  61. 361

    Wow Howard Stern is ……… well there are no words for him.

    She may have health issues but then so does most of America when it comes to weight.
    Gaby can do anything, it all comes down to attitude.

    Howie I think your parents must have been so mean to you cause you hate everyone else, you need a hate intervention!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  62. 362

    Doesn't sound like he's doing anything other than telling it how he sees it. Actually, his honesty shows a lot more compassion than those who choose not to see reality, such as it is in Hollywood.



  63. 363

    Since shes gotten cast for a show I guess Howard is wrong! His comments are mean and untrue.



  64. 364

    Anyone can look the part, but it takes skills to play the part. She did great in the movie precious. I also read the book push and she really captured the spirit of the character. Great job Gabourey!



  65. 365

    It's sad but true and that is the reality of show business! I hope and pray this girl has high self esteem and a loving and supportive family because until she loses weight this industry is going to eat her alive. I'm so happy that she got another role!



  66. 366

    I think that she's beautiful! Who cares if she's over-weight! If she's happy with herself, that's all that matters!



  67. 367

    You have got 2 be fucking kidding me….
    F*ckers! I can't F*cking believe some1 can actually f*cking say something like this!! NO they are not JUST f*cking saying she won't get another part!! they are talking sh*t about this girl!! & actually if u think about it they are talking sh*t about other girls who are chubby they are basically humilliating and putting them down!! This is f*cking horrible!! they are 2 of the most disgusting ppl ever!! & who gives a F*ck if this "is" the only movie she will be in… they could have jst said THAT but noooo they had 2 talk all this sh*t… f*cking A**holes!!



  68. 368

    Sad but true..As much as I would like to see overweight unattractive people in show business..Hell Im sure there are tons of people that can act better than all of those Oscar winning actors but they arn't given the light of day to even try.

    Gabourey Sidibe just went from being an Oscar nominated actress to doing a cable TV show..That is one massive downgrade. She won't last long.



  69. 369

    That was really mean to be honest….but she should lose weight for her health.



  70. 370

    I have a hard time believing that people are this utterly stupid. Maybe I'm wrong.



  71. 371

    I am a Howard fan but I agree that this was harsh. The show makes you wince sometimes but I think that is what keeps me listening. "You never know what will come out of their mouths next." This clip Perez added left out when they discussed her next role as the killer whale at Sea World. Yep, it's mean but I laughed.



  72. 372

    He also mentioned she could play the Stay-Puffed Marshmallow Man in the new Ghostbuster's movie. Now THAT is way wrong!



  73. 373

    Re: CVictoria – no it's my birth name



  74. 374

    It's really a riot how many people have commented on this post. Howard is funny and quite often cruel; that's his gig. The movie *Precious* was worth the ticket price, not best picture, but pretty darn good. Mo'nique's portrayal of the mother was fabulous, she deserved her Oscar. Gabby was good in her role, but pretty much because of what she looks like. The chick will have a REALLY hard time staying employed as an actress in Hollywood. Truth is: she's the fattest person ever nominated by the Academy. Not many roles for the morbidly obese.



  75. 375

    HOLY SHIT LIKE 400 COMMENTS! DAMN I got allot to catch up on!!



  76. 376

    Yes she is a pretty girl! And talented!
    But she is obese!! VERY obese!
    I'd imagine it is painful for her to even move!
    Like I just look at her and feel concerned!
    How long can you live when you weigh that much?!
    Why doesn't someone help her? :(



  77. 377

    Howard and Robin are both very sad people. They will both pay dearly. GOD DON"T LIKE UGLY….what they said was just plain ugly on all fronts.



  78. 378

    The irony of it is those are the same comments and attitudes expressed when Oprah Winfrey started out. Robin Quivers is a disgrace. She's fat and black her self.



  79. 379

    Re: londoncalling04 – why are some of you so quick t pull out that race card? Serisously how long is that going to be a sympathetic crutch? Earth to brain dead do gooder, I am in my 20's, I am an american citizen and I had NOTHING to do with what happened to blacks hundreds of years ago. Why cant he call her a "fat black chick"? thats what she is. it would be ok if it was fat whicte chick but so help us all he called her black. what a fucking joke, SHE IS BLACK, AND FAT



  80. 380

    This isn't funny. It's disgusting. Leave her alone ass holes.



  81. 381

    I don't listen to Howard Stern. His gutter is too narrow.



  82. 382

    rude assholes!
    and robin?? r u serious? maybe if u would climb outta howard's flat saggy ass that u are stuck so far up; u would notice u are a nobody!! u should just STFU!!



  83. 383

    He should talk–there's a reason why he's spent his whole life behind the mic.



  84. 384

    Re: MrGrey – yes and normally he is allot more VICIOUS! When I first heard about it, I thought he was going to be so much worse! But he was actually TAME so I don't think he was trying to be VULGAR like he NORMALLY is which was nice of him, in a way! And it's sad but true, AMERICA WILL NOT ACCEPT HER UNLESS IT IS FOR THE SAME TYPE OF ROLE! YES IT IS SAD, YES IT SHOULD CHANGE! SADLY IT HASN'T CHANGED YET! :(



  85. 385

    He is rude!! but he is being himself he is always rude! its not right what he said but thats the price of fame. Overweight people get picked apart just as much as thin people in Hollywood. It sux and it shouldnt be that way but I guess thats how it is. I just hope she is strong enougn to deal with it and not let these people bring her down!



  86. 386

    Was Howard Stern a bit harsh… uh yea, but that doesn't take away from the fact that the man does have a point. He's just saying what other people are too polite to say. I mean, I honestly do not think that she will have another successful movie, unless the plot line is similar to that of Precious.



  87. 387

    Re: truefact – I LOVE HOW SANDY WON BECAUSE SHE IS SKINNY AND WHITE! NO SANDY IS A GOOD HARD WORKING EXCEPTIONAL ACTRESS THAT IS WHY SHE WON! YOU CLOSE MINDED RACIST ASSHOLES I AM SO TIRED OF HEARING THAT SHIT AND THEN YOU SAME PEOPLE SAYING THIS WILL BE THE FIRST TO CRY THAT RACISM ISN'T DEAD!! WELL DUH YOU PEOPLE FUCKING BRING IT BACK EVERY TIME YOU OPEN YOUR HATEFUL MOUTHS I CANT STAND IT!!!! IF YOU WANT CHANGE YOU HAVE TO CHANGE TOO! WHY IS THAT SO HARD FOR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND!!



  88. 388

    Oh man, I forgot how funny howard stern is.



  89. 389

    Howard Stern is a low down, bum lookin, piece of shit who is miserable with his own self so he has to publicly bash people in order to feel superior. Gabourey Sidibe may be obese but she is beautiful…beauty is not just about outer appearances and that is all hollywood is concerned with today. Her personality is beautiful which makes her a beautiful person. Her smile is beautiful. And Howard talks about how she will never be able to find another role…yes she will. Look at Mo'Nique, she is a big woman and she has a VERY successful career, look at Queen Latifah and Kathy Bates who are all bigger women and they all have very successful careers. They might not be as big as Gabourey but she can change that if she chooses to, but if she is happy with herself then I still think she will be successful. I hope to be an actress and singer one day and I am a big girl but it's people like Howard Stern who is making me think twice about it.



  90. 390

    And he only got that job couz no one had to see his ugly face and big horrendus nose

    Re: CVictoria – HAHA SHE KNOWS AND ADORES SNOOKI, SO SHE CLAIMS!!!!!!!!!!!! ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!



  92. 392

    This girl is freaking ENORMOUS! Someone needed to say it, it's gross. The girl has stretch marks on her shoulders! WTF?



  93. 393

    Re: shittin_condoms – Dude I heard that RACE card ALL NIGHT after SANDY won over GABBY on MY FB PAGE! I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY ARE PULLING THAT FUCKING CARD! THEN THEY WONDER WHY RACISM STILL EXIST!!!!!!!!! Retarded.



  94. 394

    Re: shittin_condoms – O yeah and one more thing! TELL ME ABOUT IT! MY FAMILY CAME AFTER THE SLAVE HISTORY! SO THEY CAN KISS MY ASS PULLING THAT SHIT ON ME! EVEN IF MY FAMILY WAS IN THE STATES WE WOULD HAVE NEVER EVER OWNED SLAVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM SO SICK OF BEING LABELED IN THAT CATEGORY IT MAKES ME SICK!! THEY ARE THE ONES WHO WON'T LET RACISM DIE! AND ITS TERRIBLE, SAD AND SHALLOW!!!!!!



  95. 395

    That is really inapproriate. Yeah she is a huge girl but no need to go on about it. Just really mean. Diss her on her acting abilities if necessary but not her weight.



  96. 396

    you know what sucks? that the story in precious is also about the girl being fat and being ridiculed by others. this is sad. these people are horrible. discrimination is not OK.



  97. 397

    Howard Stern, do you actually think she doesnt know she is this large? You talk about her as if she has no clue about her size. You think she chooses to be like this? What person in their right minds choose to be like this? There are many different reasons for peopel being overweight. I am sure loosing weight is NOT one of the easiest things to do. Maybe she never had the means to join a gym. Health food often costs much more than junk food. We all know this !!

    At least she uses what she has and makse the best of it. From being a nobody to an Oscar nominee. On the other hand we all know you are only good for one thing, and that is being rude to other people and say nasty things about people. We also know this is the ONLY reason you have a radio show. Without your rudeness YOU are the NOBODY !!

    Well Done Gabourey Sidibe. You are an inspiration for many young overweight people. I wish you only luck and success on your journey ahead.

    they should relax… and back the fuck off..



  99. 399

    They are right, she is obease and needs help.



  100. 400

    Howard is correct. Everyone is thinking it but only he has the balls to say it. Sad But True
