Perez Hilton says he’s being blackballed by “The Howard Stern Show” and has no idea why.
The gossip maven, 42, says he was a regular guest on the show and even devotes an entire chapter in his new book, “TMI: My Life in Scandal,” to a NSFW segment involving one of Stern’s staffers.
“I tried to get booked on the show to promote [the book] and they turned me down,” Hilton — whose real name is Mario Armando Lavandeira, Jr. — told Page Six.
The blogger claims his team contacted the show “well in advance” of the book’s publication date but “they said they were all booked and they had no availability.”
In the past Hilton has certainly been game for the radio host’s shenanigans.
In 2017 he says that he participated in a segment called “Prostate Karaoke,” which involved a doctor performing a prostate exam while Hilton crooned a Christmas tune. He even had a bawdy, NC-17-rated encounter during another visit with Stern staff writer Benjy Bronk, that he details in the new book.
But says things changed in 2018 and every time he’s attempted to appear on the show, the same excuse of being booked up is carted out.
“It’s a bummer because I’ve been such great content for the show. I have an entire f–king chapter on Howard and they won’t have me on the f–king show to promote it,” the single dad of three exclaimed. “I don’t even know if word has gotten back to Howard that I’m trying to promote the show. I’m truly so saddened. It really hurts, it sucks.”
“I don’t understand what happened,” he continued. “But not knowing why and given the same excuse, ‘we’re all booked,’ which is obviously complete f–king bulls–t, it hurts.”
“The Howard Stern Show” did not reply for comment.
