    I think she was hideously unlikeable and the network execs said no way. But some feel she was the one that Wiggy blocked from getting work. Your thoughts?

    They were terrible. Wiggy didn't have to life a finger to "block" them.

    Robin on her best day was never more than Howard's sidekick/foil/token. She can barely read the news and her opinions are shallow elitist new age claptrap.

    This.

    Howard would have actively sabotaged Stuttering John's negotiations with Jay Leno had Howard known about it. But I seriously doubt he even batted an eye when he learned of Robin's talk show attempt.

    Totally agree. Robin has no confidence as a performer/host/broadcaster, and that comes through every time she's separated from Howard. She overcompensates by laughing hysterically at everything -- even at her own points when she's trying to be serious but has lost her nerve -- and immediately reveals her real strength is as a human laugh track.

    I think the idea that the Wig blocked her from leaving is really compelling!!!

    I always found it odd that he seemed so dependent on her.

    I wouldn't put it past him.

    (Robin would have failed on her own, anyway, imo; but to block someone from doing what they want is tres shitty!!!)

    Interesting that it is such common knowledge amongst the staff that the Wig fukt with someone's career like this.

    Maybe her fatness and cancer were caused by bitterness and feeling stuck.

    When I still listened to the show, Wig asked her one morning if she was bored with the show, she said no, and he said he felt like she was.

    That assumes she would leave and not do both shows.

    I agree she's completely talentless, but I think it wouldn't be unbelievable if some clueless cable network offered her a job that required her to be absent from the show and mr. co-dependent scuttled it just to keep her there.

    They were a failure, Howard blocked them AND she probably just gave up on the drive to put one together.

    I've said before that I think and have thought for a while that she desperately wants to be seen as some kind of Oprah-type woman (hense the "deep" tweets and the crap she posts on her website). Even though her current job has brought her a certain level of fame and money, she will always be known as Howard Stern's sidekick and nothing more, she knows it and I think it secretly bugs the shit outta her. I also think even though she is a 34, she knows deep down inside she doesn't have the intellect, intelligence, celebrity status, business sense, fame, adoration, etc......that Oprah has and never will and that's why her attempts at breaking out on her own have failed.

    Howie had nothing to do with it. It failed on its own.

    Can you imagine how crazy she would have been if she thought Howie sabotaged the show.

    Yeah.

    (I really think Robin had delusions of mainstream success, too, though. I think she would have jumped ship. Why else would the Wig have blocked it, if he did?)

    The only "sabotage" I can see Howard doing is guilting her, Rae style, into turning something down.

    (Cue megaphone effect) "Robin, we've been through so much, together, how can you leave me now..."
