    It's been said in other threads that the only reason Mike Walker used to be on the show was some deal Howard had worked out with The Enquirer to keep himself out of there. Well Mike Walker hasn't been on in years, and Howard still stays out of The Enquirer and every other tabloid (to the best of my knowledge). There are obviously things that would make good tabloid material such as his wig, his odd marriage, possible bi/homosexuality, the BFF scam, etc. and yet nothing ever makes it in. Does it all boil down to the fact that he isn't interesting enough or so few people would care that it wouldn't even sell magazines?

    I guess none of the rags care about him or there is fuckery afoot with Buckwald.

    I knew something fishy was going on when TMZ reported Artie's suicide attempt as "hospitalized for a personal matter"

    Howard is pretty vanilla these days and not exactly relevant to main stream America like he once was in his syndicated FM days.
    Satellite killed the media star.

    Howard keeps Howard out of the tabloids by being boring and irrelevant....................but please keep mind that he IS the greatest celebrity interviewer of all time, right?

    I'm trying to think of what a National Enquirer front page story w/Howard would be about.....

    His once-hardcore fan base has vanished, and he's not all that interesting now. The guy gave me a lot of laughs and I'll always remember the glory days of the show fondly, but Howard's irrelevant in 2016. Who cares?

    Seinfeld could barely contain his boredom with Howard on CICGC. Painful TV.
