Wendy Williams and Howard Stern end feud as she admits her heart was 'broken' after his scathing rant

Looks like Wendy Williams and Howard Stern have patched things up.

Their public spat began in March, when 54-year-old Williams commented on her daytime talk show, The Wendy Williams Show, that 65-year-old Stern had gone "so Hollywood" when discussing his new book, Howard Stern Comes Again.

"Howard is so Hollywood right now," Williams said on air. "And Howard, I love you. but since you’ve gone Hollywood, everything you say is so predictable. Every story is gonna be about, you know 'Oh, I love this one and then we went on their yacht.'”

"He’s a Hollywood insider now, which sucks because you started like me, being of the people," she continued. "But at some point, you sat behind that microphone for too long, and now you are the people. It hurts.”

Not surprisingly, Stern took offense to the comments and went on a profanity-laced tirade against Williams on his radio show, The Howard Stern Show.

“Worry about your husband, not me," he said, calling her a "jealous b**ch." "F*ck off! I’m sick of her and her bulls**t show."

He also took personal jabs at her appearance and health issues.

"F*ck you and your dumb show and your mystery illness," he said. "She disappears for two months, nobody knows why, and now she’s questioning me? Thanks, honey.... I never fainted on my show either."

"You’ll never be me, Wendy," he continued. "You’ll never be me. You can pretend to be me, you can pretend to be like me -- but you’re not. You’re never gonna be me. You don’t have my wit and you don’t have my talent. That’s it, that’s the end of the story.”

But in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Stern said he regrets the comments -- so much that he's removed the rant from future airings of the episode.

"That was me at my worst," Stern says, reflecting on the heated tirade. "I thought she was saying that I was a piece of sh** and I sucked. But as [I hear it] now, I don't see it as an offense at all. If 'Hollywood' means that I've evolved in some way and the show has changed, then, yeah, she hit the nail on the head."

Williams later addressed Stern's conciliatory comments on The Wendy Williams Show, and admitted his insults deeply affected her because of how much she admired him.

"By the way, Howard, I read the article with you on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter, and I saw that you mentioned me and that you apologized," she said. "Howard, you know what, if you never apologized to me ever in your life, you would still be one of the most influential people in shaping my career -- you and Oprah, that's it."

"And the idea that you apologized -- he went on the air and ripped me a new one for no damn reason, because I knew I was right -- then in this article in Hollywood Reporter, it was a thick article, he goes on to say that he loves me and that I might’ve seen something in him that maybe he didn’t see. And that he’s kind of embarrassed for ripping me on the air, so he’s pulled that from the archives. You’ll never hear that on repeat. I love him! And my heart was so broken when he was fighting with me because I wasn’t fighting with him!"

Williams, of course, has been going through plenty of her own personal drama this year. In April, she filed for divorce from her estranged husband, Kevin Hunter, after nearly 22 years of marriage. A source close to Williams told ET that Hunter's alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson, recently giving birth to a baby was the last straw.
