    Hypocrite Howie thinks that $500 is too paltry a contribution to Whorsey's NSAL vanity clusterfuck for some well-heeled "marks"? How much was he earning in '98 when he promised to contribute $20 to the successful guesser's favorite charity - including Ivan Reitman, David Duchovney, Matt Lauer and GreenDay's??? Yeah, that's $20 to the "winner," not to any celebs' willing to play along and ostracize Rosie!

    He's always been a miserable douche when it comes to his money and people, but when you had The Jokeman finger-cotting the funny into his mouth, that aspect of Howie got lost in the shuffle trumped by humor and satire.

    It always bothered me that the Jellybean bit just went away. I wanted to know the answer and the fact that they bailed on the bit made it seem like it never existed. But it WAS fun and funny to see Rosie's head in the background.
