Was he culpable?
Slow day at your house?
Wacky chicks ... go figure
He did let some shitty callers through
the kid needed a job, howard was short of cash, and job opportunities...
Howard invented suicide.
I remember listening to this at the time. I do think that she was not mentally well or prepared for the onslaught of nasty (typical) Stern callers. I believe it got to her. Is he responsible? No, not really. He can't know what's in the head of a random guest at any moment. But if he's gonna play psychoanalyst with people on his show, maybe he should have an actual one in the green room for aftercare when he emotionally decimates his fragile guests. I do believe her death haunts him. Notice the show is NEVER replayed.
She was going to do it eventually, anyway. However, the callers he let through to rag on her pushed the timetable to an earlier date.
If I recall, Dana Plato was responsible for Dana Plato's death.
A lot of people on the show bit the bullet.
That would be impossible. It would open them up to endless lawsuits.
And remember, back in the day, part of the fun that was Howard was, the unpredictability of the callers. On regular shows, disagreeable/insulting callers were NEVER let on air.
Kind of like The Howard Stern Show, now.
We all seem to be forgetting that Howard built his reputation and empire by exploiting damaged people. That a great many of them would meet early deaths is no surprise.
She was definitely not prepared. She thought she was resurrecting her career by going on the show
What goes around comes around. Thats why he will never be a happy camper even with all his wealth.
Its not really the callers but he goes into this, pretend I'm you're analyst mode, when he interviews people. And fine. that's great. And nasty callers are great. I love them too. Until you get someone who is not a normal person.
the callers are screened, and on many occassions, they are on howard's payroll...what you people fail to relize, howard is a satanist...
What I don't really remember is , what was said when they heard about her suicide?
