Professional semi-endearing obnoxious person Howard Stern has backtracked (not apologized, he clarifies) from ragging on professional semi-endearing obnoxious person Lena Dunham. After Girls co-star Jemima Kirke tipped Dunham off that Stern had called her "a little fat chick who sort of looks like Jonah Hill and keeps taking her clothes off," she called into his show yesterday to discuss their beefs and they discovered they're really not that different, after all. "I don't even know where to begin with all of this," he said. "The reason I felt so awful was because when Perez Hilton wrote his article, he told half the story... I started to compare you to Woody Allen... the whole thing came together for me."
She told him that she'd remain his fan regardless of how he felt, to which he responded: "I realize: not only am I addicted, but I totally get you. I'm in love with you and your character." Dunham: "I'm not that fat. I don't mean to take major issue with you about this. I'm not super-thin, but I'm thin for, like, Detroit."
"You're not obese or anything," he allowed.

Highlights (mostly lowlights) from Jessica Simpson's appearance on Leno, who says that her second pregnancy WAS planned. By the Lord. ("It's just God's plan for my life.")
"The last time I kind of ate everything in sight. I guess I didn't realize you could gain that much weight that quickly … (I gained) a lot more than probably doctors recommend."
"I think [Weight Watchers] were as shocked [at the second pregnancy] as I was. But they were really supportive."
On the delayed wedding to fiancee Eric Johnson: "He keeps knocking me up! I'll just keep my legs crossed, I guess, this time." Hurk. WHEN is the last time she sang? Like, is she not basically a Kardashian at this point? [NYDN]
