    It comes down to jealousy. He climbed to the top of the mountain. You all loved him as he was making the climb, when he was relatable to you as a miserable married man with no social life. He was one of us. Now we are more aware of his millions, his awesome apartment, his insane Hampton house, his model wife, his famous friends. He is no longer the Howard that would have bashed the Howard of today. I, for one, am happy for the new Howard. He seems happy. He doesn't work long hours because he doesn't have to.

    what well known or even semi well known brand has the "model" wife ever modeled for? what fashion publication has ever hired her for anything?

    there are lots of models in shampoo commercials, cover girl, revlon commercials. i don't know most of their names but they are models. they've been hired by those companies to sell product.

    beth zero, or barfo as i like to call her, is not a model.

    also, we were well aware that HS was a multi millionaire way back when the show was the greatest show on earth and it didn't affect opinions about him or the show.

    I think the OP is 100% wrong.

    I think it's more along the lines of:
    "Follow me to eh eh eh for the Revolution! Yeah, go out and purchase overpriced shoddy hardware and pay a subscription, and the show will be better than ever!"
    And then he got married to The One Who Didn't Want to Be Famous, and the show started its' immediate downhill run. And anything that might offend Beffy's Hamptons friends was immediately off limits.
    Rosie is great.
    Tyra is great.
    Never had a problem with Cathy Lee.
    Fucking hypocrite is what he is.

    Now Howard IS the joke.

    I don't care how rich he is. I just care about how funny he is. Be as rich as you want. Just be funny.

    Not even one iota of this applies to me. My ire is for the fraud he committed in getting me, personally, to spend a good deal of money on different radios and subscriptions for his move to Sirius.

    We were told of a full schedule, an OCCASIONAL Friday off (and even that was only said after his move to Sirius), non-commercial radio and three stations of original programming.

    I was also under the impression that this was a guy that made it to where you describe, but did so appreciating that his fans put him there. After Sirius, we were called wolves, repeatedly told to cancel if we said something about the lack of programming, and listened to this man go so far as to brag that he pisses on us at will.

    Despite the lack of effort, lack work days and excessive vacation time, he stole the lil radio time he was putting out for almost two years to push the merger through. He passed it as selfless promotion for a medium he believed in. Again, as we now know, this was fraud as he got a 25 million dollar payday for that merger.

    When some of us....and by us I mean me, came to terms with ALL of the above, the perfect storm hit and my radios needed to be replaced. For me personally, that was a total of four within a short time and it came right before he signed his second contract. On the day of the announcement, I purchased new equipment. I thought at least I KNEW what I was doing this time and would have no legitimate reason to complain.

    It was at the time of the second contract, that he blatantly admitted that the Sirius Job was semi-retirement. The show was further cut back to three days.....even MORE vacation time.....and AGAIN, he unethically, imo, steals what lil time he DOES bother to give us with AGT promotion. Why doesn't he go on AGT and do NOTHING, no judging whatsoever.....and just use his time talking about his radio show. Would it not be the same fraud?

    Also.....it has been reported by Sirius that much of his 100 mill annual salary was to cover budget for his show. Clearly, Sirius's lawyers were inept as it must not have been spelled out legally for Howard to pocket all the marbles.

    So....all of the ridicule about other things, wig, teeth, Beth, etc....would probably be passed by on my account if none of the above occurred.

    The thing that killed it for me was when he became a politically correct a-hole. Anyone how's not into, abortion, gay marriage etc (you know all the shit he used to make fun of) is a "Nazi". You can count down during any story of Robins where he's gonna call someone a Nazi, like clock work.

    He taught us to hate hypocritical, phony celebrities. He built his army up to see through the Hollywood bull.
    A few examples
    1) He used to play those tapes of Nicole Kidman filming a movie "oh, evan macgregor is sooooo wonderful to work with."
    2) He said that Carson was a sell out for taking so much vacation & not working a full week, "the fans get used to seeing/hearing you 5 days a week - you can't let them down"
    3) Making fun of Imus & his wife
    4) Making fun of Tom Cruise for suing everyone

    Now he has become EXACTLY what he taught us to hate. So that's why we hate him.
    He created his own little monsters.

    We hate him for shitting on his fans and being a hypocrite. Not because he is successful.

    I would be the first one who would be happy for him if he didn't turn into Imus and continue to lie to his fans about how he has packed it in and sold out.

    The one thing I can't stand about his success is how he flaunts his celebrity, Hamptons lifestyle to his fans. He talks endlessly about his "beautiful wife", $5k toilets, vacationing on the Hamptons with B list celebrities, Jimmy Kimmel parties where B list celebrities kiss his ass, his rough 12 hour work week, etc. He made it to the top of the mountain as an outsider who was one of us and now that he has made it, he is an elitist fuck.
