    Robin's Apartment In Architectural Digest. 11/10/98. 6:10am
    Howard spent a little while talking about how fancy Robin's apartment is. He knows this because it's featured in Architectural Digest. She has a bunch of antique chairs and crap and furniture with names that I've never heard of before. I don't know what issue this article is in but it might be worth looking for. Later in the show Jackie put on his Robin voice and read parts of the article. Robin really has a lot of stuff in her duplex apartment. She has fancy couches, chairs and tons of horse related stuff. Howard said they'll have to do the reading tomorrow morning since there's so much to read.
    Ralph called in and said Robin's place is nice but you can't sit on anything. Robin said she sits on everything. She said that Ralph is just afraid. Ralph said that Robin told him not to sit on some things. Robin said she never told him not to. Ralph said she has museum quality stuff in there. He said you don't want to touch anything.

    Howard said he may have to read this article on the air. Robin said that's trouble. Howard asked Robin about some of the furniture she has and how much it cost. Robin said there were some antiques there. Howard read about more of Robin's stuff and talked about how much of a fortune she must have spent in there. Howard said that's some apartment she has. Ralph said you're afraid to eat because you're afraid of dropping something on the carpet. Robin said that's ridiculous and he had eaten there.

    Also known as a fainting couch ... never heard \ saw one before! I've heard of Chaise Lounge but apparently that's different.

    Here's an interesting tidbit:
    Speculation about the need for fainting couches[edit]
    • Corsets: One theory for the predominance of fainting couches is that women were actually fainting because their corsets were too tight, restricting blood flow. However, pictures from the 1860s show women horseback riding, playing tennis, and engaging in other vigorous activities in corsets without hindrance.[1]
    • Female hysteria: The second most common theory for the predominance of fainting couches is home treatment of female hysteria through manual pelvic massage by home visiting doctors and midwives.[2] As a "disease" that needed constant, recurring (usually weekly) in-home treatment with a procedure that through manual massage could sometimes take hours, creating specialized furniture for maximum comfort during the extended procedure seems likely, as does the later creation of fainting rooms for privacy during the intimate massage procedure.

    Citation for the article (can't find any full-text of it, but haven't looked too hard)

    Collins, Nancy. "Off the air with Robin Quivers: the radio personality's private refuge from a raucous public life." Architectural Digest Dec. 1998: 240.

    Now, all that furniture had to be reinforced because of Robin's weight.
