Can someone remind me why it was "hilarious" to have Consuelos officiate the wedding?

    "we just thought it would be really hilarious to have Mark Consuelos marry us"

    "you know, wouldn't it be just really funny to show up, and have Mark Consuelos do the ceremony?"


    why, exactly, is that funny and hilarious? And was this bit written by the same comedic genius that finds 20 min Kennedy impressions and talking about "dooty" and "underpants" hilarious?

    And is it more or less hilarious than how "hilarious" it was to name their dog "Bianca Romain Stamos"? They just thought it would be "really funny" to name her that, if I recall.

    I guess Howard really doesn't need Jackie or Billy to be funny. (He is, after all, the "funniest man in show business," at least according to the desperate-for-daddy-to-love-him Artie Lange.)

    Yeah, I have no idea what that was about. I didn't even know who he was. Still don't, in fact.


    Sounds more like a Beth "joke" actually.

    I sort of doubt it would have been as "funny" if he wasn't married to famous celebrity (and Howard hard-on giver) Kelly Ripa

    I've long held that Howard Stern--on his own--isn't funny, in-touch, or very entertaining. Jackie put the funny in Howard's mouth. After Jackie left, Howard switched to more contests and staff fights. Then when Artie joined, he took up the heavy lifting of being witty, allowing Stern to perform his "ringmaster" duties (hence Howard presented as a "ringmaster" on HTV).

    Left to his own devices, Howard seems to find the following entertaining:
    1) clapping incessantly
    2) dinosaur "classic-rock" (e.g. CS&N)
    3) poorly produced song parodies with obvious lyrics
    4) incessant reality TV or faggy TV talk (e.g. Smallville)
    5) rigged contests with fake, porn contestants
    6) wannabe wackpackers with fake/stupid issues (e.g. Medicated Pete, ANE, DTPL)
    7) never ending parodies of his parents/Ted Kennedy done through a megaphone
    8) phone calls from Maryann & Bobo

    What was that entire stunt about? The had an official marriage on their beach in August then this stunt in Oct. Now anytime Howie sees a wedding dress that is traditional he mocks for having too much fabric like poor Richards wife wore.
    Hope his daughter's dress like strippers or he won't be happy.

    Don't forget how angry and irritated Howchie was to hear that Richard's wedding was officiated by the owner of a Chinese Restaurant that Richard and Christy frequented, regularly.

    Howchie yelled about how stupid they were, that they should have hired a real Rabbi or Priest, instead of someone who got their Ordination over the Internet.

    Ah, Howchie? What about your wedding? Didn't Mark Consuelos get his cert through the Internet, as well? Why was that "funny," when you barely know Mark, but when Richard does it with a man he's seen a couple of times a week for years, you call it "moronic" ?

    I get the feeling Howchie doesn't even remember Le Cirque.

    It's hilarious because it was Beth's and Howard's idea

    On the other hand it was horrible, insulting, and a joke when Richard asked George to marry him

    Didn't he recently mention that Consuelos and Ripa don't hang with them any more. Just like Chevy Chase giving the toast, the "celebs" were there as props not friends while the people that actually helped Howard achieve his success were at the back tables waiting to go to Burger King because Howard didn't feel that any accomodation should be made for those that don't like or eat fish.

    Howchie's staff were required to attend, and didn't get paid to be there.

    Chevy Chase is still being paid back with "Stern studio tours including on air time with Howchie & on TWUS" tickets, which are auctioned off for Chevy's charity a couple of times a year, despite the fact that Howchie has said several times, on the air, that "We don't allow tours of the studio anymore." It seems what Howchie really means is, "We don't give away free tours anymore, you have to pay for them." (I wonder how many such "tours" the contract with Chevy included?)

    As far as Consuelos and Ripa go, I think Howchie finally realized they weren't doing him any good (no Marbles), so he cut them off until they start paying for plugs.

    Howard likes to make fun of short hispanic dudes. Consuelos was comedy relief for howard.

    The joke is on Howard. Mark is a tasty piece of man meat. Standing next to Howard, it had to go through Beth's mind what a troll Howard is. Then she closed her eyes, thought of the Hamptons, and said I Do.

    If Richard had any balls, he would've answered with, "Not as stupid as having your wedding cake shaped like your fucking dog!"

    It's not even amusing. He just has no concept of what is funny. He probably mentioned to someone sucking his ass that it would be funny and the suckass pulled away from his asshole and said it was hilarious.

    Yeah that was it, it was simply Howard star fucking. Get as many celebrities in that shit as possible.
    Saying it was hilarious was just an excuse to the fans. Having Ripa there would've probably brought more stars which was the goal.

    Ah, I just got it. Consuela is Kelly's "Beth".

    People can suck up to Consuela to appease Kelly in the same way people bear down and suck up to Beffy to appease Howard.

    (Except of course that Consuela has some actual achievements, is a parent, is likeable....)
