    On yesterday's show a caller asked Jay what he knew about Howard's Sirius deal. Jay is usually pretty careful about how he couches everything related to Howard. He said something to the effect of, Let me put it this way. There's something about show business people that when you put money in front of them they keep taking and taking it. (so the guy on the phone said something like, Well he has 900 million in the bank, when is it enough??) Jay says, it's never enough, it's not about what's in the bank. If someone is willing to pay you in this business for what you do there is something about show biz people that thats what they do.

    Well anyway, sounded to me, that according to Jay, Howard is coming back.

    I just dont see him leaving in a whimper considering all the fan fair when he first arrived. He's signing for at least another year and we will be subjected to interviews of celebs that are now his friends ( remember he was just crazy or angry or never really had a feud with these people) and other guests that will just kiss his ass and say how great he is. Watch out for that Oprah or Leno interview.....

    Typo. He meant "RESIGNING" and not "RE-SIGNING."

    Wiggy needs SiriusXM more than SiriusXM needs Wiggy. This is more about Wiggy's narcissism than marbles. He needs a platform to spout his selfish views on everyone. He's not going to get that anywhere else. I say SiriusXM signs him to a 10 million a year contract for the next 3 years.

    I think he's coming back. His ego owns his soul.

    You're reading into it. All Jay was really saying in a delicate way is that jewball Stern can't leave money on the table.

    You cannot sue the company you work for and get a new contract. It is over after you sue.

    I don't think Jay knows shit. Howard never liked to announce vacations. You think he's gonna tell Jay Thomas contract info? :jj:

    Even Karmazin mentioned that Howard loves money too much to leave, but I think this time, it's not Howie's decision. Sirius realizes there is no value in Howard.

    He has enough money to last 10 lifetimes. It's about the power. If he leaves, he's a nobody with 40 cats. If he stays his wife is happy cuz her name stays in the press and he gets someone to change his diaper.

    You know that will be Consuela's job and not Beefus', right?

    If she won't have sex with him, she sure isn't touching his poop.

    What else is he going to do? Sit around with that airhead all day? If he gets offered a deal, he's going to take it.

    Where else was Howard going to go? I am sure WhaleRock isn't going to fund him and his staff before they get subscriptions.

    I never had any doubt Howard would be back. Now we have to see who on the staff comes back and what Howard's new schedule will be. I am in the minority, but I think Sirius may have forced Howard to work more per year.

    Keep in mind Jay has the same manager as Howard and face it, these guys love to gossip.

    no I don't think he has intimate conversations with Jay. But I think Jay works at the some company. I don't think secrets are kept in a vault there.
