    I read one of his books. Something about home remedies. Just when he was going to offer up a nugget of info in the book, he'd advertise a lecture or website subscription that you had to pay for in order to get all of the information.

    He's do the infomercials to sell the books and use the book to sell other supplies and subscriptions. I only went as far as the book, which I didn't buy, so I don't know what the next level of add-ons are.

    Even the Blob wouldn't sink so low...

    No, because the book also falls into the humor category. Nobody in their right mind should think that Robin is equipped to talk about weight loss looking at even the "skinny Robin" picture on the cover.

    Seems like there's gotta be some "buyer beware" shit that must be heeded by the reasonable purchaser.

    Afterall, it's an obese gunt telling them how to eat healthy, not some kind of expert who demonstrates the efficacy of their product.

    I love how Howard ripped on Dr Phil for writing and talking about losing weight. Now the elephant's in the room.

    A long time show sponsor, I was listening to an old tape last week where he was in selling Mega Memory. Can't remember who he dated though, someone like Sandy Korn... but I don't think that's it.

    So, this aledged fraud was a show sponser? :facepalm: It shouldn't surprise me as the level of quality sponser for Wiggy's show have always been very, very low and questionable.
