    Howard and Beth are way too media-savvy, of course this isn't real.

    But it's gonna keep us entertained for the next 4 or 5 days.

    Howie, we speak your name!

    We were entertaining ourselves with that pic for days.
    He just finally had to acknowledge it.

    Nope. You'll never hear another word of this spoken. KOAN may have a tough time getting on air especially after boy Gary stamped him a wife beater

    The fact that it happened on the last day of the week before a long break (okay 4 or 5 days) leaves me suspicious.

    Why does something big happen on the last day of the work week?

    Well if this was set up then it was horribly done. Bababooey killed the whole thing, Beth didn't say shit other than the guy was hot, and the callers at the end ruined everything good that KOAB did. King was cool but the rest of it fell flat in the end.

    I believe the KOAGT was pretty pissed about the picture almost as much as the Pittsburgh Princess was having to justify it.

    Seemed to me Howard was spontaneously up for pretending to be upset to create some content, but Beff took it too seriously and left Howard in a spot he didn't appreciate.

    Beth came off too poorly for her to have been in on a bit

    I wish I was smart enough to call everything that happens on the show fake.

    Not sure about that.

    Beth would not have came off so horribly if it was a bit.

    I think Howard knew KOAB would bring up the picture, expecting some lighthearted banter and joking with his wife (while getting the point across that he didn't appreciate the pictures like any married man would)

    Beth however, came like she was quilty of somehting, and abrutly hung up the phone, while KOAB badgered her more than Howard expected

    Worse of all, she said the other guy was extremely good looking

    I think this was supposed to be a short good natured chat advertising the show, but the situation spun out of control, leaving us with a suspisions, distraught Beth, and Howard in a poor mental state

    Also if it was totally staged, Gary would not have been so butt hurt and acted out the way he did

    There is no way Beth could be good at anythign let alone acting. She was genuinely upset which is good for all!

    Did Howard have a part of his back jaw surgically removed, part of his face is gone.

    This scenario sounds right to me. Howard has staffers/interns following this forum as well as social media and he had to have seen the picture before KOAB mentioned it today.

    However, he is a lazy bastard so he didn't plan out a scripted bit that bimba could follow and Beth's reaction was probably not expected. Liz Brown is probably working on a summary of this epic event for the examiner - even if it wasn't totally legit, at least the segment was more entertaining than the usual AGT/NBC infomercial that the show has become of late.

    Okay, this seems like the best explanation. It was funny that Howard would actually agree with King.
