Anyone remember Benjy's old girlfriend Elisa Jordana? That was back in the mid-2000's I think. Someone on a Howard message board dropped the news that she recently got engaged to..... ANDY DICK!

I didn't use to think that she hung around with Benjy to get on the show - I thought that Benjy was smitten with her and she just went along cause she was too nice to tell Meatball Eyes to bug off, and like HIS attention. Now with this Andy news, I wonder where this chicks head is at. What woman would want to get hitched the train wreck that is Andy.

by Anonymousreply 10April 12, 2021 11:47 PM

I think part of the issue is COVID and everyone being remote. When they were all working in the same offices, probably cramped in together the fights were inevitable and of course show drama made good radio. All of that is gone now, and the little bit there is comes off as staged. I know Howard thinks he’s never going back to SiriusXM offices again, but it’s a huge mistake. He needs that for the show to work.

For Trump. He’ll be on soon.

by Anonymousreply 18April 13, 2021 10:35 PM

This Trump on Howard troll is a complete nutcase. Let's put aside bashing the insane theory that Trump will soon "call into the show" and that Howard would support it, even though it's beyond ridiculous. Just for the sake of argument, assume this could happen.

So according to this wack job, Sirius is willing to pay almost half a billion dollars for this? How would that possibly make sense ( this is a rhetorical question, although I do expect some sort of inane answer).

The reason SiriusXM signed and continues to pay Howard and his team huge bucks is because he is extremely successful and has millions of daily listeners on his channels. He's a one of a kind, extremely talented and brilliant broadcaster, and the show remains great even with the studio closed for Covid. Despite the numerous haters and online trolls, many of whom populate this thread, the great majority of listeners love Howard and the show and consider it a blessing that it is still on the air. This will never be properly reflected in this thread or online comments because there is a very active online minority of haters and former listeners who feel betrayed by or disbelieve Howard's growth and evolution. They are so obsessed with their perspective that they can't accept that most people don't agree with them and actually love the show, and they also hate that Howard really doesn't care what they think. Thus they invent insane theories to support their delusions, i.e. Trump is the reason Howard was signed.

The proof however is in the pudding, which is listeners, and this and only this is why Howard gets and will continue to the big bucks and mega star treatment from SiriusXM as long as he's willing to remain on the air.

Yesterday’s conversation about circumcision was interesting. Chris Wilding and Fred Norris are uncut. Howard and Ronnie being Jewish are cut. Surprisingly Howard who considers circumcision barbaric, when the question that around was “Would you have your baby son circumcised?”, Howard said that he would. Usual horror stories of a adult circumcision being needed because of other health problems an uncut man might experience. Chris Wilding is cute and slightly slutty which is sexy. Memet is a mess and probably a closet queen but still hot Steve Nowicki is very handsome, well hung and gets a lot of action. With girls unfortunately

Why would anyone hate someone whose agent negotiated the sweetest showbiz deal going? He and his staff are off almost half the year and he only works 3 days per week and now it’s down to 3, 3.5 hour shows. He used to do 5 days per week and be on sometimes 6 hours straight.

by Anonymousreply 41April 25, 2021 7:12 PM

Sirius XM sent an offer so cheap it was virtual beggary, so I had the service turned back on in one of my cars. I listen only on longer trips, and rarely. This present day Stern is a real toady and his interviews are embarrassingly fawning. He reminds me of the SNL skit the Chris Farley Show, when Farley would put his hands between his legs, roll forward and giggle nervously in the presence of celebrities.

Poor old Robin Quivers hangs on, really sad and fawning, falsely jovial. Her laugh sounds neurobehavioral, like a tick or nervous reaction. She has tried acting, writing, even an embarrassingly amateurish vegan YouTube series. Her projects always seem to be delivered so painfully, like babies with clamp marks on their heads. Her big talk show was stillborn.

I wonder if Howard’s deal is somehow less money than the amount “leaked” to media outlets. It doesn’t make sense financially. If it is even a fraction of the number implied in the NY Post, it’s still too much. He’s kind of an inert presence, rambling about his painting and cats, hot (almost) model wife and his obsessive diet, journaling, things like that. He’s ok, but not ever actually funny like Larry David.

I do admire his compassion for animals, though. But his impersonations of his elderly parents are beneath even his own dignity. He is so fortunate for their longevity, but still mimics them and grouses about them like a kid but with progeria. Even Margaret Cho stopped that Schtick long ago.

Back in school I used to enjoy listening to his KROC show for Fred Norris’ quick and clever sound effects (he’d play the theme from the Exorcist when Barbara Walters interviewed Ricky Martin, and a progressively loud “pastoral” instrumental over Robin’s news reporting, things like these). I think they’re all phoning it in, literally during this pandemic.

by Anonymousreply 42April 25, 2021 9:26 PM

I love R42 for saying all of the things I've been thinking about the show for a long time, especially Robin. Her autopilot laugh is more sad than engaging. She lost the OFF button for that years ago, and since she doesn't have to do the news anymore, her only function is to bolster Howard's ego with phony chuckles and kissing up.

I did listen for years, back in school. But it’s tough to listen to this older, wizened Stern fawning over other, more famous and interesting people. He’s become strangely uninteresting himself, basically a run of the mill old neurotic guy. But he seems to get a pass for a lot of pretty racist and misogynist humor, and some really scatalogical content. He might be reclusive because it’s possible that people blurt “hey fart man!” when they see him out and about. I listened yesterday, for the first time in a long while. He was chastising his wife about properly masking and socially distancing, eating too much sugar and being “pre-pre diabetic”.

And poor old Robin was crowing remotely, agreeing passionately as she has forever. I think he discreetly tried to help Artie Lang, but he also was a passive agent in some deeply humiliating content related to gender, race, sex, ableism. He tried to adapt (“retard” became slow person, “midget” to actor, etc), but his canon, comedically, is a shitty one. Grownups understand that. At least he’s not a mean guy, like Jerry Lewis kicking rabbits on a film set, or anything like that. But the economics of Sirius radio, if they are in fact paying a million dollars per day for his simpering and kvetching, makes absolutely no sense. It’s just shitty and sad.

R61, as long as you maintain social distancing, you’re pretty safe if walking outside in suburban or less trafficked areas. I bring my mask but keep it below my chin (I’ve been vaccinated a few months). If I approach someone I pull up my mask well before I get near them. If I’m in an enclosed space like a supermarket, of course I keep my mask on. That said, in more urban areas, if there’s a lot of traffic where you’re walking, masks should be on.

That's what any sane person has been doing for a year. The only reason there was a mask mandate outdoors in my country was to prevent people from coming up with the "I forgot to bring my mask" while entering businesses and then throwing a tantrum at being turned away, and it was explained exactly like that.

Anyway, Howard will never leave his bunker because he lives in fear and doesn't want to be around people anymore. He has said as much on his show, that the quarantine was a great relief. He's using the pandemic as an excuse for his social phobia.

It was funny. Now he's just angry not matter what the subject his, he doesn't let people talk and is just impossible to listen to. And I'm not sure what Howard finds funny about a guy in his seventies talking about sex. It's just bad.

On the other hand, Ronnie is the only one left playing along so Howard is down to him. Everybody else has either moved on or they don't care.

It was painful to listen to Howard whine to his wife about eating cereal and candy. You know he's very jealous and wants to shame her because he likes the skeleton look for himself and for years he's said he loves thin women. He doesn't want to get too firm with her because he knows he needs her around to take care of his old ass. He calls her "honey" in this voice that is half whine and half plead, trying to appeal to her in a non-confrontational way, when he really wants to demand she throw away her candy stash. It was cringe listening to him describe how he wheedled her into getting a blood test and was happy that he could throw the "pre pre-diabetic" thing in her face.

I'm happy that Beth didn't automatically give in to his baby behavior and that the doctor took her side.

But after listening to her stand up for herself yesterday, I think she knows that she's in the best position ever. He clearly stated that he cannot live alone, so he will have to go with the flow and keep the peace with her. She knows Howard is too afraid to start over with a new woman at his age, plus his hypochondria has him locked in with someone he knows he's safe with -- Beth has all the power now. She can take in all the stray cats she wants and Howard will fold..

Blind item CDAN : There is an actress/comedienne/radio host who used to also write books. She hasn't done so in a very long time. It has been a couple of decades. About five or six years ago, she was thinking of new ways to bring in income and decided she would write another book. In that book, she was going to recount some stories about this permanent A+ list DJ who is no longer on his A game. The stories would have included the definitive account of whether his first date with someone special to him, was in fact, the date bailing on her paying client to have a chance with the DJ. It also would have told some other tales that have all been speculation in the past. She was dissuaded by not only the people of the DJ but also a late night talk show host. You know who won't be dissuaded though? That someone special to him who already has a manuscript ready to go whenever the split happens.

Sandra Bernhard / Jimmy Kimmel / Howard Stern / Beth Stern

Oh but of COURSE beth was a fucking escort. And of COURSE she has a book ready for the divorce. Howard will look like such a fucking joke, deservedly so. It also explains why Sandra has been persona non grata on the show since her allusion on the air about Beth being a gold digger/paid wife or whatever it was that she said. She knows exactly what's going on. Also explains why Howard is such a lapdog for Jimmy Kimmel.

I thought that listening to Ronnie's sex life was nauseating, but they had George Takei on last week and Howard spent about 45 minutes questioning the 84 year old celeb about what he does with his husband Brad. I've heard George plenty of times in the past and know Howard would bring up his sex life for a bit, but it's not fun any more.

I think Howard is so interested in Ronnie and George because he wants to get confirmation/reassurance for himself that even old(er) guys still get horny and bang. Howard is really getting up there now and hearing old man boner stories give him some comfort that he can still give it to his wife.

The show is on two week vacation as of 5/24 and they advertised that they will have something called "The Stern Show A to Z". It sounds interesting - each letter will highlight something associated with the show. For example: E stands for Eric Norris, as in when Fred changed his name and they'll play clips from back in the day when this was addressed on the air.

This is stuff I'd rather hear than the garbage they've been putting our in the last 2-3 years.

According to Trump it does.

Look, I have my complaints about the show these days - I think COVID has destroyed it - well Howard's paranoia about COVID. I think Trump is a non-factor when it comes to this show. The Trump derangement from some is off the charts. Trump is a giant baby who holds grudges and is pissed they didn't support his run period, end of story. He would never come back and - in his rapidly deteriorating mind - and give Howard a yuuge ratings boost and grace the show with his presence.

There is no news because that means Robin would actually have to do some work/research and compile stories. It was being done by staff/interns when they were in the studio. It is nothing but laziness that has caused the news to come to an end.

The fact that Howard openly didn’t support him in either 2016 or 2020 is a deal breaker. I’m sure Howard would love to have him on, and yes, there would be huge ratings, but there is no way in hell Dump would ever go back on his show after Howard supported both Hillary and Joe.

Trump is gone, even if there's still plenty of Trump-related news. Plus, they could always pick and choose their news. Robin reported news that was in every major newspaper, but also Hollywood stuff, and just random bullshit. Like she should have reported on the 21 year old living in a 72 square foot apartment and her and Howard would just riff on that. The comments were what made it funny and they could comment about anything. I guess Trump was unavoidable during his presidency, but they could fashion a news report without trump, or even politics for that matter, if they really wanted to.

I just checked Marksfriggin to see if todays show was worth downloading and saw the notice about "longer summer vacation", then I came here to ask. I see others are way ahead of me. I didn't listen so I only know what you guys tell me. So, what's the deal? Two months off? Howard is such a workaholic it seems weird for him to do something like this, and how can Sirius allow him this and think the subscribers will put up with paying for more reruns?

I started wondering what' behind this extended break -- my first thought was "is someone getting some secret cosmetic procedure done and needs time off to heal?". You always hear how some celeb disappears for a while and comes back looking "refreshed", so that's why my mind went there. Then so many other possibilities popped in: Is Beth pregnant? Is Robin sick again? Is Howard moving from NY? Is Howard building a new studio in his house for the future? Are his parents sick? Is Howard sick?

Unfortunately Stern has become who he has traditionally despised. The last time I drove my vehicle that has Sirius radio service, I cringed through a really awful bit of Howard singing to Robin about Covid and how he “saved her life” by convincing her to cancel a getaway to Napa Valley. The idea was ok, but listening to his singing and the thin, cheesy humorous elements reminded me of a really spoiled teenager performing for doting parents at a summer camp talent show. Way too long and tedious. Stern seemed lost in his own corny, odd sense of humor, and disconnected from his listener. He’s like Soupy Sales or Don Imus, but worse. Poor old Robin managed to croak a few fake laughs, and stoic Fred managed to fluff the bit by playing Robin’s singing, butchering the musical scale, mercifully over Stern’s nonsense. Howard’s humor, supposedly the spine of the show, is as funny as a cry for help. Even Benjy has the upper hand on Stern and Quivers because their interactions with him are so prescriptive and stale. They query him about his experience on a dating app, and struggle to offer pithy, clever put-downs. Funny, sort of, 15 years ago. Maybe it’s good for Stern to stay quiet for a while. Paint, comb his cats, kvetch about his diet and appearance, needle his oddly vacant model (adjacent) wife about her diet and lifestyle. Ideally he will give some of the freakishly overblown (overstated?) wealth to nonprofits. It’s possible that he isn’t actually paid or worth what is implied about him. His rumored salary might be spin, bloated and overstated to fluff his stature.

by Anonymousreply 208June 30, 2021 3:43 PM

I caught a clip of Stern trying goad George Takei into a really sad and disturbingly homophobic song parody, and I was glad Takei didn’t participate.

Earlier, I heard Stern interview Drew Barrymore in his new style, fawning and submissive. He seems so grateful for even c-list guests. It’s all a bit sad. Barrymore’s odd new-age chatter sounded like an old Valley Girl, and Stern’s banter with her had a really creepy artificiality to it.

Similarly, Adam Sandler’s interaction with Stern, reminiscing about past conflicts, sounded like he was visiting a lonely old neighbor, trying to make peace with a curmudgeonly old crow, for throwing a rock through a window years ago.

Back when Howard was still relevant and beefing with other DJ's like Imus and Limbaugh, you know Howard would be ragging on them like crazy for being lazy and taking advantage of their listeners. He is fast to point out the faults of others and now he's making excuses for himself.

Why doesn’t he just retire? He’s made enough money.

by Anonymousreply 217June 30, 2021 10:51 PM

Because he’s going to interview Trump about whether or not he’s going to run again in 24. Sirius wanted that “interview”, “announcement”.

by Anonymousreply 218June 30, 2021 11:24 PM

He clearly stated that when he signed the new contract, 12 less shows were promised and an extended summer break was always planned. As an avid listener it sucks but if it kept Howard on the air for five more years Ill take it, love the show. For those who are crying that he should retire, why not just not listen/ follow the show anymore and then, for you, it will be just like he retired!

There was never a formal explanation but I assume it's because Robin no longer had access to the resources at the radio station. If she was motivated, she probably could had done a "lite news" with whatever info she could gather right off the internet at her home. She's done, I guess.

by Anonymousreply 222July 22, 2021 11:43 PM

She was using the interns to compile the stories. So without interns to do the work, Robin stopped doing the news.

by Anonymousreply 223July 22, 2021 11:47 PM

People here refuse to believe they stopped doing because pf Trump. Trump did the show 50 times. Howard and Beth are still members of Mara Lago. I think Beth recently had a pick from there on her Instagram. They both live in the Trump vicinity in Florida. She stopped doing the news because of their loyalty to Trump. Just because he didn’t vote for Donald doesn’t mean he’s not friends with Donald. Robin too.

R224 have you listened to the show in the last few years? So much Trump bashing all the time. I have a very hard time believing that had any thing to do with them stopping the news segment. In fact, I think it came up a week or two before the break and they both said they’ve spent so much time since Trump and the pandemic discussing current events that the news segment would be redundant.

by Anonymousreply 226July 22, 2021 11:59 PM

I don't miss Howard this summer, but I do listen to old fights on my commute. It used to be a great show but it was never about Howard, it was about back office idiots and cohosts arguing. Some of Howard's old rants are good, but they're always about yelling at staff. Howard cannot carry the show on his own, contrary to the truly greats who don't need anybody else to shine.

Howard's not a leader, he's a bully.

For no explicable reason, I got the feeling that when the show returns in a few weeks, Robin may not be there. She has always been one to want to travel and explore the world and she will decide that she is wasting time being second banana to a no longer relevant radio show and robotically chuckling at Howard's attempts at humor. She's no longer a 'newswoman' , is past retirement age, has reasonable health after her cancer battle, and has the resources, so it's up, up and away for her. The only thing to stop her is limits on Covid and travel bans.

Watch me completely wrong and Robin is back, all chipper, when the show returns.

by Anonymousreply 246August 20, 2021 4:02 AM

Howard has said he won't do the show without Robin.

As for Robin exploring the world...maybe just the first world. She couldn't handle visiting India - she said the airport smelled so bad she immediately booked a flight home.

It's going to be very strange when Howard returns. This is the longest he's been off the air in 40 years. Even Letterman, Carson, Leno ect. were off for several months at a time for various strikes. But Howard has never been off for longer than two, or maybe more recently three weeks.

The show really isn't the show anymore. If they're truly never returning to the studio, I almost don't see the point of them keeping on.

Last year they actually returned the week of Labor day and did two shows on the Tuesday and Wednesday after, so I'm wondering is this year they'll be doing the same. He'd normally take two weeks off in July and two in August so if he's doing twelve less shows in the new contract (as reported 100 as opposed to 112) then those 12 show would have been taken during the 4 extra summer vacay weeks and he'd be back the week of Labor day again but who knows?

Ronnie was a big reason that I started listening less - that nasty old creep and his sex talk was nauseating. If it's true that Ronnie is really, finally gone, I may listen to the show on their first day back just to see how they handle it. Will Howard get choked up that his longtime colleague is gone? Will he get maudlin because the realization that they are now all old farts sink in? Will he still be ranting about masks and the unvaccinated? Will Robin still chuckle like a robot?

There will be a lot of "catching up" stories from all of the staff and the Wack Pack, but the thought of hearing Mariann from Bklyn yelling or Jeff the Drunk whining just doesn't hit anymore. Depending on the flavor of the first show back from hiatus will determine if I even bother doing the random download just to see if any of the old spark is there.

It's a mental illness at this point. They're both vaccinated and she wants to eat a meal outside and he gives her grief about it.

I believe that Howard ain't divorcing her at this point, he's too old/scared to be alone and can't go searching for the next floozy if he's too afraid to leave his house. Even if they did split up, she can soak him for enough to board all the cats she wants. Even with a pre-nup, I gotta think she'll be okay.
