    Ben and Ray are on up there in years, and it wouldn't surprise me if they both made their way to Sheol before the end of this contract. Now don't get me wrong, they seem like sweet folks, and I really don't wish them an early demise--but I honestly think that when one or both of them go, that Howard and/or Don will try to milk it for publicity.

    Here's what I think will happen--Howard will quit broadcasting on Sirius and Don Buchwald won't just put out a short note about the passing of his parents, but will hype it by putting out one or more press releases about how integral they were to Howard's career, and how other celebrities like David Letterman emulated the way Howard used his parents on air, etc. It also wouldn't surprise me at all if they didn't do a "Best of" Ben & Ray Stern to fill more airtime on Sirius.

    I can also envision the behind the scene calls to TMZ and other outlets regarding the funeral so that we're treated with pictures of Howard and Beth all done up for the funeral. Beth, of course, will look amaaaazing in some type of inappropriate black dress.

    I hope Beth doesn't break her ankle the day of their funeral.

    Beth will twist her ankle prior to the funeral and neither she or Howard will attend

    Howard will be making it into a Pay Per View special for $499.95 Or just order HTV now for only $995.95 and get the behind the scenes footage from the funeral home

    Hopefully Rae and Ben will have Alison sitting in the front rows with the family at their funerals as a final "fuck you" to Beth...its going to be rough going for Horseface though, she'll have to pretend that she actually cares that Howards parents are dead.

    Howard's not above exploiting anyone for publicity or (more importantly) money.

    i think you're all wrong! howard will be devastated....he's never had to deal with anything like this and is very fortunate to have both parents. by 58 most people have lost at least one......

    beth will somehow benefit (i don't know how...but she'll manage to).

    I hope like hell Mary Bababooey has an ingrown toenail that day which preempts the funeral.
