    Ok, robin has been broadcasting via isdn from home since may. Like so many things in the Howard stern universe (In which there supposedly exists an entire news staff devoted to reporting nothing but Howard related items -- which this is -- and supposedly under specific directive that nothing -- not even Howard's wedding -- is off the table), the official story is that there is no story.

    Here's what we know this far:

    1. Robin hasnt been in the office since mid-may
    2. Robin broadcasts from an isdn line from home
    3. Robin sounds ok (no hoarseness, coughing etc)
    4. Shortly before her absence she briefly mentioned that surgery was required to remove a mass about the size of a grapefruit

    This board has speculated everything from cancer to lap band surgery to jail.

    Thoughts?

    I personally think that the mass was removed and the biopsy came back malignant and that robin is undergoing radiation / chemotherapy. This extended absence helps schedule treatment more convieniently and will keep her off camera and not looking frail .

    In the old days, Howard would've put a cardboard cutout of robin in the chair. Now, he just ignores things.

    Can someone find a video of Howard explaining te h100 news organization and telling us that nothing is off limits? That's about as classic as the 5-day schedule clip.

    Also

    5. Robin is writing a diet book
    6. Robin is overweight

    Would be something if her book launch was accompanied by a huge weight loss.

    I speculate that Robin is bat shit crazy, and that either Whitey or western medicine will be held to blame.

    There's something definitely going on and it's probably not good. I'm one of the people speculating that she had some sort of stomach stapling or lap band procedure but now I'm not so sure about this. I did not listen to the show today...did she talk about what she did over the break? Usually she travels somewhere and we get a recap of it. I'm beginning to think she does have a very serious problem but it would be nice if the Stern Show could address it instead of being so secretive...so much for transparency.

    Say what you want about Robin, she has some work ethic if she is really sick and is still participating in the show, even if it is via ISDN line. Personally I think she is really sick. She has shunned Western medicine for a long time, and as a result I think she has some advanced form of cancer and is going through chemo or radiation. Maybe she is waiting for a prognosis before she says anything to the fans.

    Oh I don't think anyone has ever questioned her work ethics, just the work she does while there :c

    Her big black glass dildo shattered in her several months ago causing cuts and leaving shards behind. That was the reason for the piss bag and surgery.

    could still just be that she got a hysterectomy. my understanding is it can take 2 months to recover from that surgery.

    hysterectomies are becoming more and more prevalent for women her age to stymie, cure or prevent further medical problems.

    Is it really a work ethic when you have nothing else going on in your life?:jj:

    I would never wish anyone to be sick, but she will never be my favorite person. I would LOVE for it to be a stomach stapling situation. That would be the world series of guilt free mocking.

    Then why not just come out say something about it? Hell, she's talked about everything from using vegetables to achieve orgasm to shitting in her pants in front of her hotel once...what would be the big deal? I think Howard put the kabosh on this.

    My mother had one two years ago and she was out of the hospital in about 3 or 4 days and back to work in our office in a week or two. I know everyone's different but I wonder what it could be that's keeping her at home for so long.
