Another Howard Stern 'Wack Pack' Member Dies: Nicole Bass

The last year or so has definitely not been good for the Howard Stern 'Wack Pack'. Just weeks ago, Joey Boots passed away. And this week, Nicole Bass died.

According to the New York Daily News, Bass was 52 and had been sick for a while. Her girlfriend wrote a message about the passing:

The past few days I, Kristen Marrone, have been posting to my girlfriends pages to try and keep her very personal life private. Rumors have been spreading around the internet about her health. A few days ago we didn't know all of what was going on so I have been trying to keep it quiet until we had answers. Nicole values her privacy and I Respect that. Before anyone tries to take the story and twist it up and make it ugly I want to put it out there in a Respectful way.

Bass's death was not reported to the news because Marrone says she would not have wanted that. Marrone further wrote about Bass:

Nicole was an amazing woman. Strong not only on the outside but inside as well. Beautiful soul and kind heart. Many people knew Nicole but few ever got close enough to know the REAL woman that she was. I got to be one of the lucky few. Not only was she my soul mate and my girlfriend but she was my best friend, my teacher and my business partner. I learned many valuable things from her and created many beautiful memories in the time we had together.

It's likely that this week on The Howard Stern Show, Howard Stern and his crew will discuss Bass' death.

The Howard Stern Show 'Wack Pack Death Pool'

In January, The Howard Stern Show did a segment on their 'Wack Pack Death Pool'. After Bass' untimely death, this will likely get more publicity.

In a moment of clarity, Sal decided not to participate -- he felt bad about joining in and removed his bet.

Howard and Robin at the time took shots at him, but Sal remained resolute. Benjy also did not like the 'Death Pool'.

At the end, Howard Stern admitted that the pool was bad -- but he said that he was hoping that the pool would encourage Wack Packers to change their unhealthy ways.

We will see if Howard and the crew discuss this on Monday.

We wish our best to Nicole Bass' family and friends in this difficult time.
