    Ok, so Howard is auctioning off another visit to his studio. It is weird though. He has had eight bids so far (4 from the same person who bidded against himself in three bids in a row driving the price from $7500 to $11500) and has driven up the price to $24k in a few days yet Robin auctioned off the same prize a month or two ago and the bids were well under $10k for a week or two. Clear evidence that Howard is manipulating the bids to drive up the price on his auctions to make him look more relevant than he really is.

    It seems this is the case whenever Howard auctions off a studio visit than whenever Robin or Gary do.

    That might be Beth driving up the bid as a pay back for Howard helping her auction out. She's just not smart enough to realize she's bidding against herself, allegedly.

    Interesting bid history - why would someone bid $23K on June 17 when there was already a $24K bid on June 12?

    The CEO of Charitybuzz used to be on the 15 Foundation Board - despite "charity" in its company name, Charitybuzz is a for profit company that keeps 20% of the auction proceeds as a fee.

    https://www.charitybuzz.com/faqs

    "There are no upfront fees to partner with Charitybuzz. At the end of each auction, Charitybuzz keeps 20 percent of the net raised to cover its comprehensive services and website upkeep. Charitybuzz provides its partners with full auction management, including: brainstorming and strategy, collection of auction lots, writing copy and securing images, graphic design, marketing and promotions, shipping and reconciliation, as well as access to our community of socially conscious bidders."

    He totally manipulates and pays off those "bids". All an effort to make Beth seem desirable and sought after.

    I thought that is why he threw away his credibility to go from a cutting edge and edgy shock jock to a kitten loving pansy.

    If I was rich, I might do it just so I could fuck with him on the air. What is going to do? Throw someone out who spent tens of thousands of dollars for charity?

    Interesting the proceeds go to director David Lynch's TM Foundation -

    And Wiggy's also got an eBay auction to support Bianca's Furry Friends.
