    In the first 30 mins of the show today, Howard said he went to his therapist yesterday who has been helping him with his panic attacks. Robin asked him if they are related to AGT but Howard said no. She probed a bit but wouldn't elaborate. Is Howard freaking about John and Artie speaking the truth?

    God, his utter self-involvement is sooooooo fukkin boring!!!

    Can you imagine having Stern on the couch as a client?

    How soon 'til the therapist wants to crack him upside the head with their clipboard (while still cashing the checks)?

    And sure, they could be related to the fact that his world is caving in on him.

    Oh, n was Alison the therapist?

    Maybe it is about John or Artie, but I have to say I think it's about his therapy. Therapy is suppose to be used to help you through things, not something you use every day as a crutch your whole life. Everyday he's told he needs therapy and has to talk to a therapist or doctor. That's probably the reason he has problems or attacks. Stop the damn therapy every day.

    Therapy....almost every day....all year long.....for decades. Who wouldn't feel panic and that they are crazy? That's just not healthy in my opinion. :dontknow:

    The wigged fraud doesn't know from a real panic attack.

    It's just his justification for the next "look at me, mommy" moment. If people aren't paying enough attention to him (in his mind), then he needs to ramp up the symptoms of his "illness". All in a never ending quest to garner increasing levels of sympathy from the people he pays to pretend to care about him.

    His narcissism is his addiction.

    Oh hell yeah, the money Stern has spent for decades has to be insane. That therapist has to be insanely expensive. Stern only gets the best as he says.

    Yes. It's the first criticism of the show he has heard in a long time. He has surrounded himself with ass kissers that tell him every show is the best one yet.

    Real panic attacks suck and I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemies. That being said, Howturd could probably use a few.

    I don't think he could care less about Artie's and John's expose'. I think what's causing his attacks is the fact that he's probably going to be a man without a country pretty soon, for the first time in how many years? He's always moved vertically in his career and if these truly are his last days at Sirius, he's not even moving laterally, he's just not moving. Maybe what's really causing the panic attacks is that he knows this is it and he's retiring earlier than he planned or thought he would be AND he'll be home with Beth and the kittens all day, every day. Would anyone be able or willing to endure that for more than five consecutive minutes?

    Howard's been mentioning the "panic attacks" for several weeks (or longer). One time he even said his heart was pounding so bad he thought he was having a heart attack and went to the doctor. He's such a huge baby I'm sure it's nothing and he's exaggerating to get attention (as usual).

    Would anybody be shocked if there was no therapist? I think his radio character has a therapist and Wiggy reads books about therapy to be able to fill in the back story. He used to say he saw a psychiatrist, now he says therapist.

    He's having panic attacks because Sirius did not renew his contract and he realizes whalecock is not going to keep chimney manor in Kitty litter.

    Sounds like reality might have finally set in.

    - AGT was a bomb, he failed
    - He fucked things up with sirius so they most likely won't resign him
    - The truth is starting to leak out a bit
    - Howie is totally irrelevant

    He's schvitzing over the fact that he should finally come out of the closet at age 61 and whatnot.

    At least one of his daughters would be so goddamn proud.

    This. He's an obvious quack, but no dummy. I'm sure his grandkids' educations are paid for all thanks to Howie.

    And, really, how good IS his marriage? Eating the same dinner every night (carry out), whacking off... Sounds like the old Howie when things with Alison were heading south. Is Beth around?
