In a 45-minute, expletive-laced rant on his SiriusXM radio show Monday night, Howard Stern railed against embattled CBS chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves, accusing the powerful executive of trying to ruin his life. "Les tried to ruin my life," Stern said, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The veteran radio host referred to a $500 million lawsuit that was filed against him by CBS in 2006.
