    Simply put; he owns or possesses power over the people he's friends with. Go through the list: Everybody at the show works for him, and they are all "friends". His personal trainer is his "bro", his wife is bought and paid for. Feel free to add others.

    This came out of re-listening to the "bro" argument where he says he's "bros" with Dr. Lew Weinstein and his trainer. The latter of whom he owns. You can't be friends with your employee, you're the boss.

    You'd be surprised how many friends you get once you're the boss. Your shit suddenly doesn't stink. Most people are cloying phonies.

    Howard does have a few friends who do not work for him. Jimmy Kimmel, Matt Lauer (sp?), and some other folks never mentions on the show since he wants to remain friends with them. But yes, employees are not friends.

    Famous "friends" don't count. They are acquaintances. Friends are people you're close to. Howard's wedding was an embarrassment. Nothing but famous people and employees.

    One of the funniest examples of Howard's lack of friends was when Ralph was labeled his best friend. They don't sound like best friends. Ralph can't just pop in. Ralph has to follow strict rules when visiting. That Howard called him a "dear friend" speaks volumes.

    These social "hang outs" between celebrities are infrequent at best and remind me of "play dates' mothers send their kids to.

    They're for networking, status seeking, and ego boosting purposes only. Each sucks some status off the other. Matt Lauer gains some alleged hipness, Howard gains inroads into the straight world his wife craves, Jimmy probably actually enjoys it because he can bust Howard's balls.

    Jimmy is just a fan of Howard from way back, like most people. Hes more of a famous fan than a friend, as are all the other famous people that like Howard.
