The Howard Stern Show Vacation Death Curse has struck close to home. Wesley Warren Jr., better known as "the man with the 132 pound scrotum" died late Friday at the age of 49.
Warren became a reality TV celebrity after appearing on the Howard Stern Show back in September 2011 to talk about his very real struggle with large scrotal edema. Warren told the HSS audience that he suffered a scrotal injury in 2008 and that the area began to swell at the rate of three pounds per month. Warren stated that the organ weighed in at 132 pounds, but the Sirius XM studio showed it to weigh an astonishing 146 pounds.
In 2012, Warren turned down an offer from the Dr. Oz show to pay for the surgery which was estimated to cost $1 million. Warren didn't want to give Dr. Oz exclusive interview rights to his story. Warren later appeared on his own short-lived TLC show in 2013 "The Man With the 132 Pound Scrotum."
