She's a fake and it's so transparent and Howard is a sucker for buying into this woman.
I can see Howard talking to Beth after the Katie Lee and Billy Joel break up........
"Wow, Beth that's so sad. I guess it just didn't work out. Did they just grow apart? She was so in love with him and who he was. Is she OK? Hopefully she'll make it through this and move on to another love. Wow...shocking. Here's some money, go out to dinner with her, it's on me"
HOW THE HELL CAN A PERSON USE ANIMALS TO FORWARD THEIR CHILDISH AMBITION TO BE A SOCIALITE CELEBRITY AND THROW LAVISH PARTIES??????
