Hughes got very heated with his side kick Anthony Cumia over the article by Chaunce Hayden and eventually walked off the show. To hear the fight, just click on the link at end of story.

'THE STEPPIN OUT MAGAZINE STORY'

BY: CHAUNCE HAYDEN


Gregg “Opie” Hughes of the Opie and Anthony 92.3K-Rock radio show (the lowest rated morning show in New York City) is furious at me for publishing a story about an alleged sex tape starring his fiance Lindsey and MTV’s favorite “Jackass” Bam Margera. There’s only one problem, dopey Opie never bothered to pickup a copy of Steppin’ Out to see what we reported or even if the story had ever been published. Um, it hadn’t. Last week Page Six of the New York Post published an item that yours truly was planning on writing a story on the alleged sex tape in an upcoming issue. Page Six was correct. However, what Opie and Bam failed to do was return my request for a comment regarding the sex tape rumor. So the Steppin’Out story was killed. Despite our efforts to get the facts, Opie chose to humiliate his fiance by using the item as a ratings grabber and turning a small mention in Page Six into two days of on-air fireworks. Opie even went so far as to lie about the time he called me on the phone several hours after I interviewed both him and his partner Anthony Cumia for Penthouse magazine and ask if I would change one of their answers. The question was, “Who invented ‘Whip them out Wednesdays (WOW)”? Anthony answered, “We both did.” Later that day Opie called my office and cried how sick he was of Anthony always saying, “We invented WOW.” He asked that I change the answer to read, “I invented WOW years before Anthony and I met.” Which I gladly did. Last week Opie denied the call ever took place. Really? All one need do is read the interview in the January 2001 issue of Penthouse for confirmation. But getting back to the subject at hand...the alleged sex tape.Two weeks ago I was contacted by a former O&A staff member who informed me that there was a sex tape involving Opie’s fiance and Bam Margera and that the tape (allegedly now owned by another former staff member of the O&A Show) was going to be sold on the Internet in the coming weeks. I was told that Lindsey and Bam were allegedly “doing the nasty” on the video tape and that it was made prior to Opie meeting Lindsey. Since the Page Six item came out, all parties involved have denied the video tape exists. I also believe that there is no sex video since nobody has come forward to present the evidence to the media. Now the question has to be asked, “Why do so many ex-staffers hate Opie so much that they feel the need to embarrass him any chance they get?” Well, judging from the lies Opie so easily tells over his airwaves, from this reporter’s perspective it’s easy to see why.For more on this story, you can hear me interviewed on Internet radio at www.robontradio.com. The Opie and Anthony Show is now officially the lowest rated morning radio show in New York City with a 1.7 rating behind WWFS.

Wow... wouldn't you be upset if someone was spreading lies about you in one of the biggest news papers in the US..I don't blame Opie for being upset at all... I think that as a journalist it was Chaunce's job to get all the facts before passing it on to page six... it was also Page six's job to get all the fact before printing.. they did make a retraction and but not before hurting a lot of people... bad job Chaunce..

So let me get this straight there Chaunce...You told some lies about people, and they called you on it, and they're the assholes?

Cindy Opie Sheehan is a no talent hack board op that should thank Anthony every day for his own career. He is not intelligent or interesting, even though he tries to claim he plays a character on air. The show is only entertaining when Patrice or Bill subs for Bloated Gollum, if Cindy shuts up long enough.

And it turns out Chaunce was flat out lying. Bam said no event ever took place. Mr.Hughes was right for being furious about this unwarranted attack on his wife who wants no part of being in the spotlight.
