What functions does Ralph serve in howards life? I saw the pictures of them hanging out at Burning Man together and it got me thinking has howard developed a legitimate liking of Ralph? Are they genuine friends or is howard so psychotic he feels like if he leaves ralph out of anything, that ralph is one step closer to signing a book deal? The condom hit Ralph took for howard had to go public in order for howard to try and clear his name with alison but I wonder how much other shit he's done for howard to save his ass that we don't know. I honestly cant see any genuine reasons why howard would like ralph. Everyone hates him everywhere. He hangs out with only A list stars and they probably tell howard to not bring ralph to any of their parties, I just saw his teeth up close for the first time the other day in a video and I'll go out on a limb and say they put Gary's teeth to shame. There's literally no reason for this loser to be kept around. There's a million better stylists in hollywood and I bet thats just a cover for ralph so he doesn't have to put unemployed on his taxes. But the issue I'm wondering about is howard can obviously pay him off and tell him to go fuck himself, but he still keeps him around to this day. I get it no one cares about ralph but having only been listening since late 90s I wonder if theres more to this than whats been revealed on air. Lay out some conspiracies. They're gay lovers right?
