    C'mon, you haters who think Beth is after Howard's money, she shops at Filene's and doesn't spend a lot of money on clothes.

    The actual quote from Howard was: "My wife buys $27 dresses from Filene's, not $600 dresses"

    Sadly, this audio is now lost since the great Todd Packer compilations have been scrubbed from YouTube. If anyone has access to older shows, it's from the first hour of the 12/14/2011 show.

    This single clip proves that:
    The original Wrap Up show produced great content for the main show
    Howard is too stupid or arrogant or scared to acknowledge the above
    Howard is a liar, or a sucker, or Beth changed, or all of the above
    Marks Friggin is a great tool for holding the Wig accountable

    From Mark's Friggin:
    Howard said what they were talking about was the dress that Sal's wife had purchased for like $600. Howard said even his wife doesn't do that. Howard said his wife goes out and gets dresses that are on sale at places like Filenes. Howard said that Sal has to sit his wife down and tell her not to spend money like that. He said she should spend $100 or maybe $70.

    I started a thread about it years ago but we still need to be reminded once in a while.

    Awesome. Now she can hang her $27 dresses in her $10 million closet.

    Sure she does. I saw her at the Marshalls at the Gateway Mall in Brooklyn last week buying a $3 sweater.

    Howard must think listeners are stupid. Why even say that shit. I suppose Beth also gets her shoes and bags from TJ Maxx.

    This thread dovetails nicely with Howard's admission to KOAB this week that Beef only shops for her shoes at Louboutins for Less. :giggle:


    "Yeah, uh, by the way, King, Beth (who supposedly never listens to the show) heard you talking about her shoes yesterday (yeah, sure she did) and wanted you to know that she didn't pay anything close to $1800 for that ($1800) pair of shoes."


    In truth she probably pays a lot more - as she first has to hire a team of boatwrights to actually construct the shoes to spec in size 15 and then she has to purchase the rights to the appropriate labeling from whichever designer she's copying at the moment.

    Nevertheless, it's cute watching Marci Turk desperately scrambling to protect Wiggy's "man of the people" branding image - as if we're all still living in 1991.

    Why try to have her appear to be a bargain shopper at this point? Wtf he's an old super rich guy, they can afford it. It would be funnier if he just admitted it.

    Indeed.

    Well they have to be able to compete with all the discount shoe sites online that sell Choo and Louboutin and are perpetually stocked with a full range of this year's newest designs for thousands off retail. :rolleyes:

    For the same reason he feigns not to to know or remember who somebody is if he feels they are beneath him. There's a great clip of Riley going back and forth with a caller, and Riley keeps referencing "Dominick". Wig and crew pretend to have absolutely no idea who he could possibly be referring to. It was so over the top with, "Dominick? Who's Dominick?" As if Wig has so many Dominicks in his life. Wig is so famous and busy that he can't possibly be expected to remember a guy that was a huge part of his show and his personal life for many years.

    It would be hilarious if Howard really thought he fell in love with a bargain shopper who respected his money, only to find out what he ended up with. :snicker:

    A $27 dress going in to a 10 million dollar closet.... yes, she's very frugal.

    A couple girls I dated all they did was go on those websites where you can buy those shoes. But Beth is a computer illiterate she didn't even know how to write and save a word document on MS Word.

    Beth has come a long way from having to take the bus to go to Jersey to do modeling gigs.

    $27 - the price of a burger and fries in Midtown Manhattan.

    Are we talking a rum and coke at a regular manhattan bar or scores? A rum and coke at scores is $40.

    I think it's pretty universally understood by anyone not named Wiggy or Turk that those sites are fine for top named brands if you're content with purchasing a style that's a season or two old and your shoe size is between 5 and 6 1/2.

    Beef falls into neither category.

    Got a $20 voucher form a Manhattan hotel that I was staying at once. I go to the bar and drink two well drinks thinking, that'll be about 20 bucks. I close out and the bartender asks for $20 more.
    I don't know how you guys afford to live there.
