The Oscars. That’s how Jimmy Kimmel is treating Howard Stern’s Birthday Bash.

Gary Dell’Abate, the executive producer of The Howard Stern Show, met with Kimmel last week to discuss planning for the bash, which takes place Friday, Jan. 31, 2014, at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City,

“We went over plans for the birthday show. He’s very excited, everything is coming along great,” Gary told Howard 100 News reporter Lisa G. “I told him who I had booked, and I told him how I saw it running, and I asked him what he needed to be comfortable for what’s going on.

“He suggested a lot of things. He really was just like, ‘Maybe we can get this guy, maybe we can get that guy, let me call that guy.’ So a lot of good stuff,” Gary added. “We’re extremely lucky to have him. He really knows his s—, and it’s gonna be great.”

Things aren’t coming along as well for Mariann from Brooklyn. Mariann told Howard 100 News that she’s put on weight, and has some work to do to get the look she wants for the big show.

“I have a big fat stomach and I gotta get into a nice dress,” Mariann said. “Ten pounds. I gotta lose 10 points. I gotta start walking again, and today I go back to kickboxing. I got to. What am I gonna look like, a schlub there? Oh boy, am I disappointed in myself.”
