Howard Stern MansionAnd the purpose for some of the construction work is to satisfy Stern’s model wife: She wanted a larger closet!

She’s going to get one that’s about 1,000 square feet! And for that to happen, a source who saw the blueprints tells me, workers will have to move the grand staircase to a different part of the 18,000-square-foot house.

“They’re changing the master suite, which is on the first floor,” the source said. “The suite includes his and her bathroom and his and her dressing areas.

“Beth wanted a bigger closet in her dressing area. There was no room for it downstairs, so they’re building a new staircase in the master suite that goes to a second-floor closet. The closet alone is supposed to be at least 1,000 square feet.”

The closet will set the satellite radio host back $500,000!

To accommodate the change, major work will have to be done on the first floor. And while they’re at it, the Sterns are building a brand new kitchen and roof.

Stern’s agent has not returned calls for comment.

Hulk Hogan calling in the FBI over Sex Tape

It’s proving to be quite the soap opera, and now the latest in the Hulk Hogan sex tape saga is that the video was reportedly leaked by ‘an unhappy ex-employee of his best friend Bubba the Love Sponge.’

Despite the reporting by Howard 100 News Reporter Jon Lieberman who claimed there would be no criminal charges from the sex tape leak, Hogan plans to contact the FBI over the tape.

With rumors that Shock Jock Bubba the Love Sponge may have leaked the tape, Hogan is determined to get to the bottom of who sent it to Gawker.

A source told TMZ that Hogan had tried to report the crime to local police in Florida but because of the statute of limitations and the nature of the offence, officers could not help him.

Hogan’s lawyer added the wrestler will meet agents on Monday.

Meanwhile source told Radar: ‘Even though Bubba knew how much the Hulk sex tape would be worth, he didn’t stab his friend in the back and he’s not the one who released it.

‘It’s a former employee of Bubba’s who was outraged when he left Sirius to go back to terrestrial radio. He wanted payback.’

The source added: ‘Bubba didn’t secure the tape properly and showed it to a bunch of people. And that’s why they’re all in this mess now.’
