O.J. Simpson Threatened Howard Stern

Artie Lange plays the loveable sidekick on the Howard Stern Sirius radio show. Have you ever wondered what goes on when they go to commercial? Do they pull pranks on each other? Yes, they do. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Lange paints a colorful picture of the behind-the-scenes antics on the show when asked who his favorite sports guest was:

”For me, it’s Lawrence Taylor. I’ve been here for three of L.T.’s visits. He’s always great. The weirdest and most interesting thing happened the first time L.T. came in. The interview went great. He’s always a funny, honest interview. So during a commercial he got on the cell phone and tells Howard: ‘Hey, my friend wants to talk to you.’ He hands the phone to Howard and doesn’t tell him who it is. It took Howard a few moments to realize it was O.J. Simpson.

”L.T. had called him on the golf course and I heard O.J. talking a mile a minute. He was yelling at Howard, saying ‘I’m coming for you next, Howard. You’re f—ing with me. I’m coming for you next.’ Almost goofing on him. That’s what I heard, though Howard never told me what he said. L.T. saw Howard squirming and was laughing.”

Perhaps this is the reason Stern has taken a noticeably softer position on O.J. — as opposed to the last O.J. mess — lately.
