    "I havent related to the common man for 17 years now”

    Howard said in his reply to "Matt's" question the other day. It struck me right away and even now I dont know what he means.
    What happened in 1998? What is he talking about?
    Was it because he now had some success with his books and the movie and felt more like a celebrity? He met 'it' somewhere around this time didnt he?
    That comment is very interesting...any ideas?

    I remember him having a hissy fit back in the WNBC days, when he found out Imus had a limo driver and he didn't. Even back then he wanted to be above everyone else, not one of his common man listeners.

    The specificity of that number is odd..

    Perhaps that's when he started doing that horse. I imagine only uncommon men fuck farm animals.

    That wasnt announced until October 1999. Why would he not relate to the common man anymore in 1998? Half the people that get married get divorced. I guess that might be it, but it sounded really odd to me. Like suddenly he felt better than the common man...You could be right though...

    Even she has to be thoroughly embarrassed by that.

    Of course it is.

    I was going to post that but, you already had.

    He divorced his wife and kids and became a big shot with the Trophy Wife.

    I personally don't understand doing that but, I'm not a big shot.

    It's just an arbitrary idea of "quite a long time".

    Wiggy is so dysfunctional. He has no friends and the upper echelon showbiz types he so desperately wants to accept him no doubt laugh at him behind his scrawny back. He thinks Beth and her trashy outfits are hot, when in reality she and they are ridiculous and embarrassing. The two of them are desperate social wannabes without a shred of self-awareness or class.

    The Private Parts movie came out in 1997. That's 18 years. He probably counted wrong cause his fingers only allow him to count to ten.

    I remember awhile ago listening to what I believe was somebody from the back office saying ,"Howard hasn't been a man of the people since he signed his first lucrative contract".
