    I was wondering why no one in the mainstream media calls out any of the shit that the Wig does. I have two thoughts:
    1) No one gives a shit
    2) That fucker is litigious as all get out. It's obvious that he has sued everyone he has ever worked for. But I have heard him ask/say in a few interviews that if someone said something derogatory why don't they sue?

    Look at all the money he has spent on cleaning up the webs of the photoshopped pics of his wife and the embarassing photos and antics of his kids. Dollars-to-donuts the moment anyone starts to say something he probably swarms in with an army of lawyers. Who wants to deal with that? I bet he spends a good portion of his income on retainer fees.

    Allegedly.

    Just a thought.

    Pre 2006 he had a bully pulpit. You didn't dare say anything bad about Howard because he would rip you a new asshole for 2 months, and it would get a lot of media attention. Now? No one gives a shit about him. Which is why there hasn't been any "expose" about Robin's tumor.

    Agree, but much lower level celebutards have been in the media than Robin.

    He can't sue people for giving their opinion of him. He bad mouths people all the time on his show.

    Well, that's another issue entirely. We - as a culture - have become obsessed with morons: Courtney Stodden, the Kardashians, Jersey Shore assholes. For better or worse, celebretards are culturally relevant in many cases. Robin and Howard are no longer relevant.

    Would you subject yourself to four rants per week from a lunatic with several lunatic fanbois?

    If you were a comedian or talk show host, and took a rip at Howard, no one would care. Your looking to stay relevant yourself. It would be like making a George Bush Senior joke now. He's off the radar completely.

    Example 1: Danny Devito and Weird Al Yankovic have more twitter followers.

    Example 2: 2012 AGT ratings.

    his desperation to be relevant is sad/funny back to sad again. AGT was a leap - can't wait to see the next thing he does. I really hope he gets a reality show - the stupid shit he and his do is hilarious. I think the "musical" is the next thing. He probably thought to himself - hey the guys from Southpark did it, Kathie Lee did it, I can do it.

    Who did he say 'im not saying anything bad, but i wouldnt leave small children around him'?


    Jay doesnt think he is worth engaging, so i think Scott Baio is the highest 'celeb' to bash Wiggy :dontknow:

    Now THAT is a thought...a reality show. You know that Beth would eat that shit up. How much you wanna bet they already pitched the idea and it was met with disinterest?

    I sure as fuck would. Howard has lost his mojo. His rants make him sound like he is senial or retarded,take your pick. I would definetly take him on in a war of words/wit. Shit the only guy on his staff that can't make a point against him is Depace.

    It is strange because the show is not as good as it once was but no one but us says anything. Even some "celebrities" who were criticizing the show in the past year or so got quiet really fast. I think Howard has someone contact people and ask them to be quiet. I listened to the Master Tape show this morning and it was so nice to listen to a show that made me laugh and that I didn't want to turn off. Howard's show has been bad since 2010.

    #1 pretty much sums it up. We seem to be the only people that still give a shit about this crap show.

    No one cares and Howard is one of the most carefully managed celebs around....fuckwald has long tentacles and if even the slightest criticism occurs it's ignored by Howard and the person is notified of the error of his ways by don.


    Primarily though....no one gives a shit!
