    So Howard was brought to tears today about Bianca. It is understandable that someone would get emotional about a lost pet that they had for a decade, but has Howard ever shown any emotions when talking about his kids? I wasn't a listener when his first two daughters were born, but I was when Ashley was and I can't remember him being choked up about her birth. Are Howard and Beth truly unable to feel emotions for people and only for animals?

    To be fair, Howard spent WAY more time with 6iahca than he ever did with his kids.

    Only when he found out how much his child support was.

    a bit here and there. Wiggy was sort of emotional a few years ago on Halloween remembering taking his kids trick or treating. he could also have been sad because they were missing out on some free shit. :dontknow:

    Howard is getting tons of mileage out of this story - no doubt will sell the sound bytes of his crying today - look at MSN, any search pages and it is filled with the story of HOWARD STERN AGT JUDGE dog dies...Howard and Beth are giant phonys and needed some drama. Most people deal with this their whole lives and take their dog to a vet. We don't PRESS RELEASE it and in the meantime plug our stupid TV shows.

    He's admitted as much. He said he let Allison raise the kids while he "worked" on his radio show.

    I actually do remember him getting emotional re. his daughters: first, when one of them (Emily?) made a rare in-studio appearance when she was about 10 or 11, and sang--very well, I might add--the song "I Gotta Crow", from the musical Peter Pan. The second time was on Howard's last terrestrial show, where he made a speech and thanked his daughters, adding "I know it's not easy growing up being 'Howard Stern's daughters'".

    to be fair, howard was disconnected from people before he made it big. it isn't like money or fame made him more disconnected :dontknow:

    thank goodness his daughters are healthy, fairly well-adjusted young women. i have no doubt that sometimes he gets emotional....as much as we love our cats and dogs, our children are first and foremost the loves of our lives. i would do anything for my child.

    I'll give Howard a pass for getting choked up over Bianca. There are few things sadder in life than losing a pet (dogs and cats in particular). I can't really think of anything involving his kids that would cause him such sadness.

    The dog was created by a professional breeder and trained by a professional trainer.

    Once Howard started paying child support he started seeing his children a lot more then he did when he lived with him. In Howard's mind if he's paying for them then he's damn well gonna get something out of it. :c

    His being sad over the dog is understandable. Hell he was more upset over losing Java then he was Alison in the divorce, from what I've read here Java is still alive as well. I wonder if Howard has an overwhelming desire to go visit her now? I'm pretty sure I'd want to go hug and "talk" to my old dog that I lost due to my own actions if I were in his position of feeling so badly about Bianca.

    When's the last time he's actually talked to Emily or Deborah? Last check they live on opposite ends of the earth.

    He does keep in touch with sweet Ashley, he has to remind her to watch what she puts in her Facebook page.

    This morning in his speech he said "Beth & I don't have any kids, so Bianca is our child. Well, I have kids from my first marriage but this is Beth & I's child"
    It was like he slipped & forgot about his daughters for a second.

    Well,, I've been a FAN For 25yrs....listen EVERY SINGLE DAY...(USED to have the show on 24/7 in my home office but NO MORE...it sucks so bad)
    anyway....I remember Howard choking up many times on air...
    especially when he announced his divorce....very emotional...
    When he talks about his aging Parents...VERY Emotional...(imagine when they pass away) :eek:
    it's like WE KNOW THEM TOO!!

    Robin has broken down ON AIR..
    and of course LisaG!
    Not sure about Fred....(he's a Martian and they never cry) ;)

    I was crying this morning listening to Howard...VERY EMOTIONAL..
    We all loved Bianca too! It's like we KNEW HER!!
    So of course I cried!

    and as I posted her MANY TIMES...I'm going thru the exact same thing with my beloved BEAUTIFUL Dog..Ben (Benjy)...he's going to be 16 July31st!
    I cry just thinking about losing my "baby"....like Howard said..."she's our baby"..well,,,Ben IS MY Baby Boy!
    He's so loved and such an amazing Dog!
    I know he lived a LONG HAPPY LIFE ..so did Bianca!
    I'm prepared for THAT DAY TOO!
    So I cried today for Bianca......and for my BenjyBoy! Ben.jpg

    Peace & Love

    Ashley's birth was a private happy occasion for the Stern family.
    Though, Howard was able to get a few good bits out of it. (Bobo at the hospital I believe? and that dumb ass gift Nancy and Jackie bought
