    Howard claimed today that he has never and would never fuck with someone's career and claims he couldn't see how anyone could do something like that. I figured I would list the people he has actually tried to fuck over their careers with:

    • Opie and Anthony - Those two have a long and documented amount of incidences he fucked with them and their show because he was either scared of them or pissed off about them. When they were both working for the same company at both Infinity and Sirius, he would have edicts of what they could and couldn't say on the air.
    • Jake Bronstein - Bronstein went on Attack of the Show to promote FHM (Beth was on the cover) and said that dating Howard was a great career move for Beth. Bronstein was fired from FHM a day later.
    • The crew of AGT in LA - Howard had to have AGT on the East Coast. So that means a lot of the crew in LA were let go because it would cost to much to fly them to NY/NJ and feed and shelter them for three months. There were probably dozens of crew members who lost their job so the show could accommodate Howard.
    • Soupy Sales - Soupy used his piano on his show a lot. Supposedly, Howard had the piano wires cut on his piano. He just pestered Soupy endlessly to try to get him to quit too. Since Imus put a gag order on Howard about speaking about Imus (which Howard did the same thing to O&A), he took his aggressions out on Soupy.
    • Bon Jovi - Howard was pissed off that Bon Jovi that when they started to get big that they wouldn't do his show. He wanted to prove to them that he made them and tried to get his audience to turn against them, give them crap,and boycott their shows and albums.
    • Bob Levy - Howard has Bob Levy banned from the Sirius building. Levy promoted himself a lot on O&A. He lost a lot of opportunities to get his name out there because he can only call into the show and it isn't as good.
    Who else?

    With the exception of the AGT crew in LA I'd say the rest of those people did a pretty good job of fucking themselves.

    Howard has never fucked anyone over. It is his management team that has allegedly created problems for some in the entertainment field. As we all know, Howard has no control over anyone on his management team, he is a victim.

    O&A maybe, what did the other people do to fuck themselves? Especially at the time Howard was fucking with them?

    That's the fake story, Robin.

    Even in his wildest, most savage pre-evolved days, Howard didn't have the nerve to destroy property. His guys wrapped certain piano hammers in paper towels so that it made no sound when Howard struck the key, then Howard the bad boy claimed to have clipped the wires for being disrespected by finding food left in the studio. Thirty years later, he still isn't totally upfront about it being an act.

    The kids will get theirs. They know all about the midnight Ralph visits when they grew up living with Gunky. Or the REAL reason Richard Simmons always visited. If he wants that shit off the tabloids he knows he'll have to leave them a generous portion of marbles when he croaks.

    He used to threaten Kathie Lee Gifford with buying all her tickets up to one of her Broadway shows and just have him, Robin, Jackie, and Fred in the audience.

    I heard Opie and Anthony's rants and they sounded truthful.
