    Howard Stern is a liar

    Howard Stern lies about everything.

    Howard Stern has never told the truth.

    If Howard had been invited to speak, his name would have been in the program.

    After the Ed Bradley fiasco, no way Howard was going to sit in the back at a celebrity's funeral once again.

    i'm not sure what happened.....if howard was part of the service his name would have been on the program. i'm thinking something along the lines of fuckwald reaching out to melissa's "people" and begging to be invited to speak. but this happened at the last minute, melissa was too drained to say no to such an icon.
    so what does howard do? turn it into a cringeworthy speech all about howard. what do you think people will remember from the service? unfortunately, it will be howard's grotesque comments about joan's "dry pussy".....a 12yr old would be more mature than howard.
    he's shameless.

    Fuck Howard. He was not part of Joan's inner circle.

    From the second Joan died, we all knew Howard was going to try and make it about himself and use it as an opportunity to get his name in the press. I'm not sure what the chronology of events was here but there was definitely manipulation. The man went to the lengths of creating that farcical story about calling Robin Williams to attach his name to that death, anything is possible.

    I'll make this easy. I know which one is NOT the truth. The one that he claims is.

    I think Coward was waiting for the eulogy invite...

    and waiting...
    and waiting...
    and waiting....

    And when it never came, 1.5 days before the funeral he broke down and called Melissa to ask about the when and wheres, and what the schedule was. And Melissa mentioned there might be an opportunity for anyone to come up and speak a few words near the end of the service.

    This then became Howard's Eulogy of Joan, in his honor.

    Howard must have been furious when he learned he wasn't to be part of the service, much like when Beth was not included in the Kimmel wedding party, there he ruined their first dance, here he made a old woman's funeral service about her dry privates. Howard is truly sick.

    Howard asked to have his name left off the program because he didn't want it to be all about him. If people knew he was going to be there, it would just distract from the funeral.

    That first dance thing was truly cringe worthy . After this "eulogy" I kind of get why Howard never wants to leave the house.
