    Very strange for sure. There are several things regarding the Robin mystery that I can't figure out. Hopefully we will get some answers soon. One thought that comes to mind is that the secrecy is all part of the Stern/Buchwald plan to draw maximum attention to Robin. Use the illness to garner curiosity from the fans in an attempt to increase book sales. Marbles come first, always.

    Well this week they can avoid it!
    and I think they will be off the week she is due to rise from the ashes.
    "W..www....we have not had time to talk about it (caller who got thru screeners) we've been off! But I have been WORKING on AGT!!!"

    Stern will start promoting a "grand return of robin quivers" and start telling us some bullshit stories manufactured to sell books. Stern will have as much of an impact as he does on movies these days.

    The complete silence and apparent ban on talking about Robin was really obvious earlier this week. One of the shows Shuli is on (I think it was Jay Thomas on Friday) did a story about people who love coffee enemas. Normally he can't keep his mouth shut so I was expecting him to crowbar in a lame joke about Robin but he didn't mention her or even say a word about it. Very strange.

    Robin will not make any personal appearances. If she does any promotion it will be a remote from her apartment. She will not talk about her illness. Howard would be furious if she scooped the radio show.

    The Vegucation of Robin - Book Publicity Schedule:

    March 26th - Today Show or Dateline (NBC)
    March 27th - Entertainment Tonight (CBS)

    April 2nd - In-person appearance @ Enoch Pratt Library (Baltimore, MD)


    The April 2nd appearance is especially interesting because it's "in-person" on a Tuesday when the Stern Show should normally be live on the air. How could she justify traveling to Baltimore if she's supposedly not well enough to be in the studio?

    I don't buy the house arrest theory but I'm starting to wonder if Robin is not allowed in the Sirius building for some reason. I just can't imagine what it could be.

    The bitch just doesn't want to get her ass into the studio anymore. She's not sick, IMO. She'll probably just make her book appearances, Howard will discuss them but nothing else about her not being at work will ever be mentioned. They got away with the silence for this long and they'll simply continue it.

    she might have just thrown one of her tantrums, and said she can't deal with so-and-so or such-and-such anymore. they've always had the ISDN lines at their houses, and i doubt howard would ever put his foot down about anything in his current state. he probably just let her do it from her house rather than fight her or lose her completely. it may be something as simple as her inner uppity lazy Reggie surfacing.

    Here's a crazy theory.

    Suppose she's been dieting all these months just to make a grand re-appearance to promote her book?

    Unlikely, but that makes as much sense as all the other theories.

    Do you really think Howard wants a disembodied voice for his HTV show. He hasn't signed off on this. He's dealing with it but that doesn't mean he's happy about it.

    I don't think that's a crazy theory at all. I think its a very likely scenario.

    Robin: Howard, I have to quit. I hate Sal. I hate Richard. I hate the poor people in the city. I hate the interns. I hate people looking at me. I hate people breathing near me - poor people, no less. I hate people that eat meat. I hate white people in general. I just can't do this anymore.

    Howard: Listen. Lest anyone think I want you to quit - I don't. Listen. Just work from home. Listen, people won't care.

    It's just bizarre that someone who hasn't been healthy enough since May to go to work for 12 hours a week is putting out a book like this. We all know she wasn't able to stick to the diet, went back to being a fat pig, and the only "life saving" was done by Western medicine when her tumor was removed. Can't wait to hear the bullshit story she comes up with to explain all the contradictions.
