<p><span></span>Radio shock jock <strong>Howard Stern</strong> is rumored to be a front-runner to replace American Idol judge <strong>Simon Cowell</strong>. And Howard's wife, <strong>Beth Stern</strong>, tells <em>Life & Style</em> she thinks it's a "brilliant idea."</p>
"I get the benefit of sitting next to him when he watches American Idol every week," she tells Life & Style. "And he is so hysterical. He's brutally honest. He actually roots for the contestants. He'll say if he thinks they don't have talent, but he's a cheerleader for them too."
Beth tells Life & Style she doesn't know if Howard — who told his listeners he'd do it "for $100 million" — is really going to try to nab the judge's chair, which will open up next season. But, Beth adds, "I think he is having fun with the idea!"
