    What do these people have in common?

    They all publicly admitted that they were ill and none of them pulled the disappearing act that Robin has pulled. Valerie Harper has been very open about it and Robin Roberts appeared on TV bald as an egg.

    Seriously, what is the big deal? If Robin is ill, and we know she got a bad diagnosis in May of 2012, who is she helping by hiding it? Wouldn't she be doing the public a better service to be open about her illness and show the world how she's fighting it? Certainly that act of bravery would get her some measure of respect around here. Instead she pulls this disappearing act and Howard wants us just to ignore it. Bizarre.

    Steve Jobs died before Apple could introduce their next great innovation.

    At the onset of her health problems she was babbling away until Wiggy probably convinced her to STFU and turn the drama into a couple of million dollar paydays.

    She probably feels like and idiot because she masked her symptoms with foolish remedies. Coffee enemas to stimulate pooping, shaman, iowaska stuff, and that's only the tip of the iceberg. I work in the OR, there HAD to be symptoms she ignored, you all of a sudden one day can't tinkle. But hey, that's her choice. This wasn't a job for Dr. Ronny.

    Now shw has probably changed her book to include her ordeal. After all her whole book was based on how healthy her food changes made her.

    The difference:
    Robin was caught with a fake "charity".
    Just look at the timeline. She and Brendan started a charity. They had a fallout.
    15 foundation didn't pay tax and lent money with 30% interest. The micro loan scandal was reported by Langford before it quickly was squashed by Robin/Howard.
    May 2012 Robin reports her illness. She leaves the show to have 12 hour (bullshit*) surgery.

    Just 2 weeks later she sold one of her house with over 50% loss. Over 2 million! Since the house was sold so short after her "illness", it had nothing to do with her illness, but something else.

    The 15 foundation goes dark after the fallout.
    In early 2013 its incorporated by Robin (since its not a charity, even if its claimed to be a charity)

    After a couple of month och incorporation it was closed.

    Robin had a parole hearing in Mars/April. Thats why she thought she could promote her book. But she failed it.

    BTW. Remember that Robin wrote the book before her illness. The original release date was in autumn 2011. Just before her IRS problem.

    "but if its IRS problem/house arrest there would be legal papers online"
    No. It was settled out of court directly with IRS = no paper trail + Robin Quivers is not her legal name.

    *the 12 hour surgery is bullshit. A proceeding that she allegedly had takes 4-6 hours at most.

    Legally I have to write:
    everything is alleged.
