    The way Robin is exploiting her 'fight with cancer'to sell books makes it almost look like the whole thing is a lie..


    How many cancer survivors do you know of that gain weight and so happen to have a fucking book on deck to sell the second they announce to the world

    that they beat cancer?


    After all this is the same cunt that uncle tom her way to millions on zero talent...



    just saying :coffee:

    I hope not. That would mean she didn't suffer.

    At this point nothing would surprise me about the Howard Stern Show.

    I don't think she made up the cancer BUT I do think she probably embellished the story a little bit to sell the book.

    You are so right about the weight.... That's the first thing I noticed when I saw her pic. How in the hell do you gain weight while fighting cancer.

    My mom died of cancer, trust me there was no gunt!!!

    No. She is exaggerating her cancer scare to make herself seem heroic and unique. Book sales are an unintended benefit

    That fact that she's involving the cancer in it at all is shameful. The book was written before her cancer when she was claiming that her vegan diet had made her so healthy. They lost that marketing angle when she got sick so they came up with a new one. Now, Robin was miraculously "cured" of her cancer by this looney diet. Using cancer as a marketing tool, something only a Stern show member could do with a straight face.

    she's severely mentally ill, insecure, self-absorbed, and full of shit so I wouldn't be shocked in the slightest if she completely made the cancer thing up.

    she was naturally going bald and rapidly gaining weight when she disappeared. me thinks she probably went in for some plastic surgery and it didn't go as planned.

    Spot on. My Marketing class in High School could have seen the writing on the walls of this one. The shitty part is nobody will challenge her. If you challenge somebody with Cancer you are an asshole. Yet this book was clearly written before her Cancer when her ego was heightened with this Vegan mantra.

    The fact is simple but sad. She is an obese 61-year old black woman, never married, without kids, with ego issues, that can't relate to people, that is a hypocrite, drinks tons of wine but thinks soda is poison, gets her news from Yahoo and Google, thinks she is above everyone, is a 34, tries bullshit hobbies that she quits, never has an assistant that doesn't want to leave, not to mention she never knows their name, never says sorry, lives in a bubble, thinks young money hungry artist boytoys are actually into her, talks shit about the staff, talks about Howard in the media as "our show," has to shit on everyone that works for 1/100th of her salary, creates fake charities for her ego, and is now milking this Cancer scare for every...literal...penny it is worth.

    Remember the Robin on air is a character. So I wouldn't be suprised that this is all storyline and scripted.

    This is the one I've seen. Had a boss who got the Big C, forget what kind, but you really worried when he was skinny. When he started packing the weight back on (he was a big guy; not obese but big), you knew he was getting better.

    And then there's Quivers. This is a woman who can be an obese fucker on a vegan diet. She had 17 months to get through the shit. I bet she lost some weight in there somewhere, but remember she was obese going into the cancer.

    Shit, I bet it was a good 10 inches of belly fat the surgeons had to cut through to get to the Quiver-Tumor.
