    He really is just a resentful creep, isn't he? He a 30 year success in his career with a billion dollars and a wife he crows about as gorgeous and a big t.v. deal. Sure, I think the show stinks but 10 million people watch.

    So why the fuck is he always saying the word resent? The words "resent" and "jealous" come out of his mouth like "and" and "the." What is the deal here? Boy, those 20 years of 3 day a week therapy paid off, huh?

    Old age. Wrestling with one's mortality. Crankiness. And having to come home to a Moose every day...

    Howard likes to hear when people aren't doing as well as him. I.E. " How much money did you make last year? "

    It's a whole thing, Robin....

    Wrestling with mortality is a big one. He'd probably like to do a lot of the things he resents (travel for one) but is afraid of the world outside NYC so he resents those that don't have his hangups.

    This. He CLEARLY isn't capable of getting self-esteem from traditional or conventional success ( hundreds of millions of dollars, mansions, "perfect marriage", kids, professional success ). Wiggy NEEDS ppl to envy him to feel good.

    He has to project his negativity on every guest. He'll ask a question and when they answer, then he proceeds to say "Don't you think that's because you're secretly unhappy, or gay or hate your parents." or which ever of his issues he's currently obsessing on. He does it to almost every guest.

    If Howard really does to go regular therapy, it seems like it's only succeeded in lining his therapist's pockets.

    He's still a miserable guy who's jealous of others - doesn't seem to have many outside interests and even though he's rich, he's surrounded by old money and hedge fund douches in the Hamptons who have even more marbles. He also makes more dough than a lot of other celebs, but he's still got a face made for radio, can't get big time shows or movies and needs Kimmel's help to get a chance to hang out with A listers.

    This might be closest to the truth.

    He's a bitter, unhappy fuck who wants everyone else to be as bitter and unhappy.

    Why? He's fucked in the head.

    Who really knows, and at this point, who really cares? :dontknow:

    It's just fun to watch such a miserable, selfish prick be miserable. :)

    I think therapy has actually made him worse.

    This. He does this to every guest, I agree, but one specific example that really stood out to me was Kathy Griffin. Of course he egged her on to talk about how miserable her childhood was -- and it was, according to her, lots of bullying -- but when she said she's OKAY about it, has gotten past it and is happy now, Wiggy wasn't having it. He swung BACK around to it no less than 3 more times, even suggesting she might or SHOULD " hate " her parents, because it's probably their fault she got bullied. Wiggy: " You must be soooooo angry and resentful!" KG: " No, not really. I'm in a good place now." Wiggy: " But seriously, you must really hate those ppl who bullied you and love shoving your success in their faces!" KG: " Um, err well, I never really see those ppl." - or something like that. That was the gist. Wiggy is one miserable mofo.

    Methinks his therapist makes less progress on Howard's issues in a year than Howard does projecting onto one interviewee...
