    Ok, so I tuned into Request Week on the show and one of the segments requested was the time Howard gave Robin a car. Clearly this is a fake request because the segment has nothing to offer other than Howard going on and on about how wonderful he was giving Robin a car.

    So the segment starts by Howard announcing he bought Robin a car. He keeps on going on how great he was for doing it and describing the events of buying her the car and giving it to her as if he was the center of the story and Robin was an after thought.

    He said he thought about getting her a silver Mercedes because he knows she liked silver cars, but got the black one because he liked it better. Of course Robin overcompensated in saying Howard made the right choice because she already has silver cars and Mr. X liked the black color better.

    Everyone on the air went on and on about how the car Howard bought was far better than any other car you could have got and how Howard bought the perfect car.

    I missed the segment back in 2006. I admit I was a Stern Sheep back then and probably would have thought Howard was awesome for doing it then. But now it is clear that Howard bought this car to look like a bigshot.

    Thanks for your call







    In hindsight it wasnt always about Allison ... it was always about Howard.

    Wasn't Howard's stock bonus worth over $200 million when he got her the car and it was all over the papers?

    That car was a "Hey Robin I feel guilty about making so much and you didn't, so here is a car"

    Movie companies do the same thing when there is a huge hit and the main actor was paid very little.

    Just one of many generous acts in his lifetime of giving.

    I wonder if behind the scenes Robin was pissed that Howard was getting hundreds of millions for his contract and her five year deal was $50-60 million total. Howard says she is a partner, but she made about 8-10% that he did.

    Robin could have gone the Oprah route if she wanted but I don't think she tested well in front of audiences.

    Heard that too. Pretty sickening how much he gloated. Especially since it's like the one generous thing he's done in his whole life pretty sure. And it barely made a dent in his massive wealth. He had to keep telling everyone it was the best, fully loaded, most awesome car that everyone wants :rolleyes:

    Howard does the same thing with the Christmas party.

    Howard always lets the audience know it was expensive and he paid for it.

    The stock was part of the 100mil a yr for 5 yr contract so he lost a bit of $.
    He did get the merger bonus of 30 or so mil.

    I doubt she'd made anywhere near that.

    As Howard told Jason and Will when he was scolding them because they were discussing obscure members of The Tapes Team on Back Office Radio..."Most people don't even know who Robin is. They think she's Robin Givens." LOL!

    I think humanity should be pissed that Robin makes 10 mil a year for "working" 12 hours a week
