    Leno walked off stage when Howard was on his show and had two lesbians kiss . If I remember correctly they had a the camera pulled back too so you couldn't really see them kissing. Howard had a fit and has hated him ever since .

    It's the only feud that Howard will keep up since Jay has no interest in fighting back .

    Is it even considered a feud when all it is, is the one-sided ramblings of a delusional lunatic that no one else cares about especially Leno.

    Didn't Howard already hate Leno by then or was it just a minor annoyance. I've been a listener since '92 but my memory sucks .

    Howard is butt-hurt about Jay Leno hiring John Melendez.

    Which would be bizarre if we were talking about anyone other than Howard. See, for years Howard admonished John to be looking for other work. For years, Howard paid John a poor salary. For years, Howard ripped on John's job-performance and told him he'd never find work in entertainment anywhere else.

    Then John found work for THE Tonight Show (say what you want, it was the marquee of late night shows) and did it for good money and didn't receive on-air abuse from Jay.

    Most bosses would be happy for their employee to take the advice to look for other work and get another job for better money. "Good for him. He'd hit his ceiling here and it was time for him to move on. I'm glad he recognized it. I wish him all the success."

    Most bosses would say that, especially after they told a particular employee to look for something better.

    But not Howard. My theory is that John leaving the show made Howard look like a cheap asshole. The whole thing about "stealing" ideas (man on the street was not Howard's original idea, nor most the bits from the 80's which came from National Lampoons) and being uptight about strippers on the show (fact is, Carson would have been pissed as hell if Stern ever tried to hijack his show like Stern did to Leno) is all a cover for Howard's fragile ego.

    Howard is a vomit. Always has been. Always will be.

    It was the Stuttering John thing like the poster above said. Anything else is farcical.

    It was a minor annoyance up to and including SJ....I noticed Hamptons losing it over Leno after Sandra Bernhardt came on and told Hamptons that Leno has a HUGE KAWK.....Am I the only one that noticed?

    jay treated john like a slave...he paid him the paltry sum of 500,000+ for approx 1 hr a day of work. he even treated him as an equal. how awful.........
    it's all so bizarre....there isn't a boss alive who asks another boss if he can buy his slave. that was settled after the civil war.

    howard is an angry, bitter old woman.

    I don't think he needs to, I'm pretty sure he gets all the screeners because he's Hollywood friendly. and damn it people like him.
