Howard also pointed out that President Bush takes off way more time than he does and nobody cares. He's always at Camp David and at his ranch in Texas but no one says anything about that. Howard and the guys went on to talk about Bush and the country's economy for a short time. Howard said the economy is doing fine but the stock market is crashing because people have lost confidence because all of these politicians are involved in companies that are going under because of their accounting practices.
Howard talked about how his stocks are all in the toilet. He also said that the company he works for is really weird because the head of the company, Sumner Redstone, was badmouthing one of the other guys, Mel Karmazin. Howard went on to talk about Bob Pittman being fired by AOL Time Warner during their vacation too. Howard said he'd love to work with Pittman and he seems to think that AOL is nuts for letting him go. He went on to give his opinions on what he thinks AOL is doing, or has done, wrong.
Howard spent a little more time talking about how President Bush is a jinx for everything he touches. He said that every company he's ever been in charge of has gone bankrupt and now the stock market is jinxed by him. Stuttering John had asked when the stock market will rebound so that's when Howard brought up the jinx thing.
Howard said that his buddy Richie Notar got engaged during their vacation. He joked that the girl is like 13 years old because she's pretty young. Howard said he was the last one to find out about the engagement for some reason. Richie told him that he was afraid to tell him about the engagement because he knows what Howard thinks of marriage. Howard said he doesn't care about other people's marriages, just his own.
Howard spent some time talking about how he was out to lunch during vacation and some guy came up to him and wanted to talk to him. Howard didn't recognize him but it turned out to be Chaunce Hayden(ChaunceHayden.com). Howard ended up inviting him to eat with him which was a bad idea. Chaunce sent Gary a not about the ten things he noticed about Howard. Here are some of those things he noticed...
Howard said he ran across Steven Spielberg while he was out in the Hamptons during vacation. He said he walked right past the guy and didn't say a word. He said he just kept his arm around his girlfriend and kept a big smile on his face as he walked past.
Howard saw Matt Lauer out in the Hamptons too but the guy ignored him. Howard said he was always nice to Matt when he was a landscaper before he became a big shot. He said he got kind of steamed about it so his girlfriend told him to go say hello to Matt instead. Howard said he had a really dumb conversation with him. Matt wondered what Howard was doing in the Hamptons because it's so crowded out there. He figured it wasn't his ''scene'' but Howard didn't understand what he was talking about. He said he just told Matt he was doing the same thing as him out there and that was about it for that conversation.
Howard said he hung out with Billy Joel out in the Hamptons. He had dinner with him and had a good time. Billy told Howard he should have a piano in the house he was staying at. He would have played something for him if he had one.
Howard promoted tonight's E! show and said that it has been named one of the worst TV shows on TV. He said it comes in 29th place. He said he was in a supermarket with his girlfriend during vacation and she told him not to look at the cover of TV Guide because he was on the cover. Luckily it was a good picture of him. Howard went on to talk about how bad TV Guide is and picked them apart for putting out a guide that's free in every newspaper already. They apparently said that Howard's E! show isn't ''original.'' Howard pointed out that shows are always ripping off what he does. Gary came in and told a story about how Jay Leno has ripped off what Stuttering John used to do with his interviews... using Arsenio Hall of all people.
Howard and the guys spent a short time talking about some of the movies that are out. Howard said he loved ''Road to Perdition'' but Robin hated it. Robin also hated the new Adam Sandler movie ''Mr. Deeds'' and said she'd rather have someone pour acid in her eyes than watch that crap.
Howard talked about how Tiger Woods blew it at the British Open during vacation. Artie usually bets against Tiger and usually loses a lot of money doing that. Someone talked him into betting on Tiger this time so, once again, he lost big bucks. He said he's down about $17,000 because of Tiger. Artie said that he spoke to Norm Macdonald recently and Norm told him he can't change his bet. He should have stuck to betting against Tiger.
High Pitch Erik called in to welcome Howard back from vacation. He said he's going to be selling cell phones in his spare time and he was pushing Cingular wireless. He said they're number 2 right behind Verizon so they're the ones to go with. Howard said he already has AT&T and he likes his service so he won't be changing. Someone asked Erik why someone would change from number one Verizon to number two Cingular. Erik said that he hates Verizon but didn't say why. Artie asked if it was ''Bad-Pitch Erik'' on the phone instead of High Pitch. They goofed on him a little bit and moved on to some other stuff before taking a break.
Howard moved on to talk about something that Robin saw during vacation. She said some home and garden network did a special where they visited Rick Dees' mansion. Robin said it was really disturbing because he lives in this historical mansion where troops marched through the house during the Civil War. He's apparently converted a barn to a bowling alley or something like that. Howard and Robin goofed on how bad Rick Dees looks with the baby face he has that's looking really old now.
Howard brought up the story about Sharon Osbourne and how she's now fighting colon cancer. Robin hadn't heard the story while they were on vacation so this was news to her. Howard said he read that they had to sedate Ozzy when he found out because he loves Sharon so much. Howard said that the two of them are really nice people and this is sad news. Howard said that it sounded like they cleared out all of the cancer at first but another story just came out that says the cancer has spread so she will be battling the cancer again. Howard said that he thinks this may have something to do with her getting her stomach stapled so she could lose weight. Howard said that she should have that ring removed from her stomach and get some food in there. This stuff is supposed to show up during the new season of ''The Osbournes'' on MTV. Sharon is apparently willing to let them cover this stuff.
Howard said that contestants actually have to pay to get into these pageants. Alison said it costs $950 to get in. Howard went on to ask her a bunch of questions about the pageant and what some of her views are. He asked her what she thinks about pre-marital sex. She said that she thinks that people should wait until they're married and in love before having sex. She admitted that she believes that's the right thing but she may not follow that.
Howard also asked her if she's completely shaved. She said she is so that led to a discussion about shaving pubic hair. Stuttering John said that he actually asked his wife to grow more hair when he first met her.
John also told a story about staying at Howard's house out in the Hamptons and hearing Howard having sex with Beth in the room above his. He said the whole bed was shaking and he could hear moaning from Beth. John said he got aroused hearing it and had to have sex with his wife. John said it went on for quite a while too. John's description of the noise he heard was pretty funny too. He said it was like ''boom, boom, boom, boom, boom'' really fast for like 10 seconds at a time. Howard joked that it was just his nose hitting the wall.
Artie told a story about banging his girlfriend recently and how the cross necklace he wears got stuck in his chest hair while he was having sex with his girlfriend and she started laughing. He didn't know what she was laughing at so it was kind of disturbing to him.
John couldn't get over how long Howard was able to hold out with Beth so he actually brought it up after hearing it. John also said that Beth showed him her calendar (BethO.com) pictures which turned him on even more. He said he put those together with her moaning and it really got him going.
Dominic Barbara called in so Howard ended up talking about how weird he is. He was at Howard's pool and refused to get into a bathing suit. He thought that was really weird but then he was telling Beth that the bathing suit she was wearing wasn't right for her. He thought that was pretty strange too.
Howard said that someone stole a bunch of boxes of condoms that he had in his bathroom at the house. He asked John if he did it but John says he saw them but didn't take them. Howard figures it was someone like Ralph. Howard had to take another break before getting to this big story about how Dominic almost killed him while they were out on his boat.
Howard finally got to the Dominic story and said that Dominic was calling him all the time to hang out with him while they were out in the Hamptons. He wanted to take Howard on his boat to go up to the Mohegan Sun Indian casino. Howard said he told Dominic he didn't want to go sit inside some building like that while he was on vacation. This was back around the fourth of July so Howard told Dominic he wanted to see fireworks. Howard said it was Dominic, his wife, their friend Ross and his girl and Howard and Beth who all got on this 37 foot boat. He said it has one bedroom that can't fit more than one short person.
Howard explained how Dominic said there's no way they could get lost because he's got a GPS unit in the boat now. Meanwhile, Howard says that Dominic almost hit two boats in the middle of the afternoon.
Everyone was supposed to go to a restaurant before the fireworks but Dominic only had one car and too many people to take. Howard said he demanded that they all just squeeze into the car. He said Dominic almost took Beth's leg off when he started to back out of the space before her door was closed.
Later Howard said Dominic's wife told him that there are no fireworks in the area and that Howard shouldn't get into the boat with Dominic at night. Howard didn't have a way to get back home though.
Dominic ended up disappearing during dinner for some reason. His wife was unable to find him but found out that he may have gotten sick and threw up or something. About 45 minutes later Dominic showed up wearing different pants. Howard figures he must have crapped his pants or something like that but Dominic wouldn't tell them what happened.
Then Howard said they told Dominic they weren't going to get on the boat so Dominic freaked out and yelled at his wife Leslie that it was her fault. Howard and everyone else got on the boat but Leslie passed and drove him in their car. They all got on the boat and it was pitch black out. The GPS unit wasn't working so everyone started to freak out. Dominic didn't have a clue what he was doing and it took them 2 hours to get back to where they wanted to go. It should have taken 10 minutes according to Howard. Howard said Ross was telling Dominic to turn the wheel the opposite direction because the GPS unit showed that they were heading for land. Howard said that he'll never get on a boat with Dominic again. Dominic and Leslie were on the phone so Howard spent a short time talking to them. Dominic said that he got the boat back to the dock in 20 minutes after dropping Howard and the rest of the people off. Leslie told Howard that every time they go out in that boat they have to call the Coast Guard to help them out. Ross also called in and talked about some of the dopey things Dominic was doing out there. Howard warned everyone to avoid getting on that boat with Dominic. He also made sure to say that Dominic is a good lawyer because Dominic complained that when Howard tells these stories people don't think he's a good lawyer.
Howard took a call after hearing Brian's story. The caller asked Howard who the under card fight will be at the Nicole Bass vs. Joey Buttafuoco fight will be. Howard said it may be Gary and Ralph but they're not sure yet. He said he still has to discuss that with Tom Chiusano. Howard said he'd take Ralph in that fight. Gary came in and said that he thinks Ralph will go down after just one punch to the head though. They all spent a short time discussing that and then John came in and had something to say about his fight with Cabbie. He said that after the fight his trainer told him that Cabbie was wearing sparring headgear while he was wearing amateur boxer headgear in the fight. The sparring headgear is about twice as thick as the headgear John was wearing in the fight. John's not sure if Cabbie knew that when he went in or if it was just an oversight. Howard seems to think Cabbie probably did know that it was the thicker head gear.
After taking a commercial break Howard quickly mentioned that Elegant Elliott Offen has decided to challenge High Pitch Erik to a fight. That may happen if and when this Nicole Bass vs. Joey Buttafuoco fight happens. Artie said he'd pay $100,000 to see that fight. Howard said he'll talk more about that tomorrow... but High Pitch Erik called in and said he's willing to take Elliott on. He says he's been training already so he's ready to beat that freak. Howard told him he'd call him tomorrow and get both of them on the phone.
Artie said this was a good way to talk to Gary in private about his breath... on national radio. Howard said he talks to his psychiatrist about the way he does this stuff. He has no problem humiliating someone on the air.
Howard's theory is that it's Gary's caps that cause the stink. Robin said she thinks it's all psychological on Howard's part. Maybe he just thinks he smells something when Gary is around.
Howard took some phone calls after the first break of the morning. A listener asked Howard about his girlfriend and if he thinks she was attracted to him because of his fame. Howard said that's probably part of it but over time it becomes more than that. He said he was attracted to her because of her looks but it's also become more than that. The caller also got Howard talking about his many weeks of vacation. Howard pointed out that he doesn't take as many weeks off as someone like Oprah who has 23 weeks off a year. In a couple of years she's supposed to get 32 weeks a year and then for her final season she gets 37 weeks of vacation!
Howard ended up talking about the economy problems this country is having and how he thinks it all revolves around President Bush. He had a couple of guys who wanted to argue with him on the phone. He put one guy on and said he had tape from August 5, 1997 that would scare him. In the tape Howard talks to a guy about terrorism and how people like the guy on the phone are the problem and how we should keep Arabs out of the country because we can't tell which ones are evil and which ones aren't. In one section of the tape he talks about how he likes Arabs but we have a problem with some of them and they should be sent out of the country. Howard said if the government had done what he suggested, the World Trade Center buildings would still be standing.
Howard went on to say that the reason the stock market is crashing is because people have lost confidence in President Bush. He said nothing has really changed in the economy and there's no reason for the market to be going down. The guy on the phone argued with Howard about it being Bush's fault but Howard ended up moving on to other stuff.
Howard had tape that they played during Best Of where Gary did a game where Howard picked his favorite women and ended up picking Rebecca Romijn-Stamos and said that he'd love to have her running around naked in his apartment... and that happened 3 years after he said it. Howard then played a bunch of phony tapes that he had made up where he predicted a bunch of dopey stuff like Joey and Rachel getting together on ''Friends'' and the whole Presidential Election mess with Gore and Bush. He also ''predicted'' that Jackie the Joke Man would blow a good thing and quit. Gary came in with tape from 1980 when Howard was working on WWWW and did a music judging thing with some guy from a record company. This tape was real and Howard couldn't stand to hear himself and his bad delivery so he stopped the tape half way through. He was trying to point out that he did an ''American Idol'' type of show 22 years before they put it on TV. That led to a discussion about ''American Idol'' and how bad Paula Abdul is on the show. The guys goofed on her abuse of the English language and how bad she looked on the first couple of shows.
Howard moved on to talk about this album ''The Very Best of Chicago'' that Rhino records sent to him. He said when you listen to it you see how they had some cool songs when they first started out but it went all wrong. Howard played a few clips from the album to point out how good some of the songs were. Then he got to disc 2 and wondered what happened to the band. He played some clips from their later stuff and everything goes wrong. ''You're the Inspiration'' was one example of how bad they got. Howard and the guys listened to a few others and talked about how gay the songs got in the later years when Pete Cetera joined the band. Gary said if you play the albums in order the songs go from best to worst.
Howard played an audio clip from a reality show that Mark is pitching to some networks where Mark and his gay lover are taking a bath together drinking some nasty looking fluid. Howard and the crew listened to the clip and laughed as the two of them rubbed each other and bathed in a milk bath. As they were playing it Artie went into his redneck/hillbilly impression and said that he can picture them going nuts when they hear that tape.
Howard got Mark on the phone and he started calling Artie fat and making fun of him since Artie was goofing on him.
Howard moved on to talk about ''Son of the Beach'' and Mark's appearance in it. Mark plays Gaybraham Lincoln in the episode. Howard said he steals the show but you wouldn't know it by Mark's description of the part.
Howard gave a plug for some box set that he has available at AKAMarkHarris.com. He said that those imbecile's at FX hired Mark and now he has to do plugs for him.
Howard said that Ru Paul also appears in tonight's episode but he appears as a man. Howard wrapped up the call after a couple of minutes and Artie, in his hillbilly voice, said ''Bye faggot!'' and Mark responded with ''Goodbye moron!''
After Mark's call Howard spent some time talking about the roommate of this guy Zacarias Moussaoui who is allegedly linked to the September 11th terrorists has been arrested. He went on to talk about how much it sucks to have bad roommates. He and Artie did their best Arab impressions and goofed on the roommate thing for a few minutes. Howard took a call from a guy who said the worst is when your roommate turns out to be a serial killer. He started to tell his story but it was so boring that Howard ended up hanging up on him and got back to his stuff.
Howard also talked about this story he read about these snake head fish that someone released into a pond down in Maryland. He told the story about how the fish can actually live out of the water for 3 days and Robin thought he read it in some phony news article or something. Howard said it was in the New York Times though.
Howard said he got a press package for a new John Tesh album so he spent some time talking about that. He played a few clips from the album. Tesh now has some singing in his songs and some of the music sounded like it belonged with the Mark Harris reality show audio clip he played earlier. He played them together and they actually fit.
Howard moved on from the John Tesh stuff and took some phone calls. One caller said that he had to change the station when he heard the John Tesh stuff... even though Howard only played about 5 seconds worth. Howard didn't believe him and hung up on him.
Howard played another one of Grodin's segments and was annoyed by it within 3 seconds. He asked if there is anyone doing quality control over there at ''60 Minutes 2'' because Grodin's thought's are so boring. In the second clip Grodin talks about the possibility of a National ID card. The clip just gave Howard and Artie even more reason to goof on Chuck. Even Robin started doing an impression of him. Howard couldn't stand to listen to the whole clip so he bailed out of it and took some phone calls.
One caller got Howard on the subject of the plane crash that happened while they were on vacation. Howard talked about that and how the pilot of the Russian plane didn't trust the computer in his plane and listened to an inexperienced air traffic controller. Howard then said that we have to start trusting computers or else it will be the downfall of man... or something like that. He said that there are too many horror stories about computers or machines going bad in the movies and TV that scare people.
Howard said that he wants to get one of the snake head fish he was talking about earlier and feed it a hamburger. That led to a discussion about diets. Howard said that researchers have discovered that it's okay for people to eat fatty foods. They say that it's the carbohydrates that are making everyone in this country fat. He said that other countries have high fat diets and they're not all overweight. It's all the breads and crap that we eat in this country that make so many of us fat. He said we all end up paying for it because these fat people are having health problems. He jokingly suggested shipping them all out of the country.
Howard spent a few minutes talking about some other news stories that he wanted to talk about. One story was about a Pakistani girl who was sentenced to a gang rape after someone in her family did something wrong. Howard and Robin talked about how ridiculous a sentence like that is and spent a little while discussing it.
Howard said he read some interesting stuff in a Maxim magazine article. He said that they give some interesting suggestions about every day stuff. Here are a couple of them:
Howard came back and did the Top 5 Songs list that he hasn't done in two and a half weeks. He got stuck on Avril Lavigne or what her name is and talked about how hot she is. Howard said he wants Gary to book her on the show. He also talked about Eminem's hit song for a couple of minutes. Howard said if he were a record company guy he'd never know that the song would be a hit. Robin said she thought his first hit song was going to be his one hit but she was very wrong.
Howard took a couple more phone calls to kill some time before moving on to Robin's news. He got sidetracked for a while when a caller asked Howard if he heard the rumor that Pam Anderson has broken up with Kid Rock and is now dating Jim Carrey. Howard said he predicted that break up. That led to the guys discussing Pam and whether or not they do her now that she has Hepatitis C. Gary said he wouldn't do her because there are too many other hot chicks who aren't famous and don't have Hep-C. Howard moved on to Carmen Electra and said that she has the hottest body for a woman but he seems to think that she may have had some cosmetic surgery on her face. He said she still looks hot but he thinks she's had some work done and wants her to come in so he can ask her about it.
Stuttering John came in after Gary talked about some story about Benjy that Howard didn't care about. John said he heard that Robin bought her cleaning lady a car. Robin said she didn't buy her a car, she just helped her out with some money for a car. She said the woman has been working for her for 10 years and she just helped her with a little money so she could buy a Honda. John wondered why she didn't just lend her one of her own cars. Robin said one of her cars is stick shift and the other one she drives to work herself. The guys asked Robin if she's also paying for her insurance. Robin said the cleaning woman is paying for that herself. Howard didn't think it was all that strange for Robin to do something that nice for someone who has worked for her for 10 years. Neither did Gary. Gary tried to remember something that John has thrown money away on to show how nutty he is. He finally came up with the fact that he spent like $3000 to have the band Zebra play at his big summer picnic party a few weeks ago. John said he loves the band and it wasn't that crazy to him.
Howard went on to say that he knows more about his father's family than his father knows about his own. Howard recited some of the names of Ben's sisters and stuff like that. He knew all of his Aunt's names and the fact that Estelle was the youngest in the family.
Howard asked Ben how old his grandchildren are and he got Emily's wrong. He said she was 18 but she just turned 19 in May. Howard told his Dad to pick up the phone once in a while and get to know his grandchildren.
Stuttering John came in and said that he experienced Howard's father yelling at his mother when he called. He said he asked Ben to turn the radio down and he asked Mrs. Stern to turn it off but she didn't know how so he yelled at her. John seemed to find that pretty funny.
Howard told a story about his mother not wanting to get an answering machine. Howard said he calls his mother a lot but she's not around all the time and she complains that he doesn't call enough. Howard said that's not true but he can't leave a message because she doesn't have an answering machine. She told him that there's no room for one in their house. Howard told her that they build them right into the phone these days so there shouldn't be a problem with room. He said he tried to get her to understand that she didn't need all that much room but it was tough to convince her.
Howard spent a few more minutes goofing around with his father on the phone before ending the call and taking yet another break.
Since Ralph is the one who has been dressing Howard for years now they ended up talking about him and how people seem to find him obnoxious and annoying. Everyone had stories to share about the stuff he does to piss people off. Howard had many complaints of his own about Ralph not doing much to help out around his apartment.
Howard took a couple of phone calls after talking about Ralph. One guy asked if Jackie will ever be on the show again. Howard said he thinks that Jackie really doesn't want to come back because they actually asked him to do a bit but he turned it down.
Another caller brought up last night's ''Son of the Beach'' which was really funny. Robin saw it and said it was great and talked about some of the great scenes they had in the show. Artie said that if Abraham Lincoln saw Mark Harris dressed as Gaybraham Lincoln, he'd probably ask to be shot again. The guys also talked about Ru Paul being on the show as a man. They said that he still sounded like Ru Paul the transvestite though.
Robin brought up the Rudy Giuliani divorce settlement that was just recently announced. Somehow he has been forced to pay Donna Hanover almost $7 million a year or something ridiculous like that. Howard said he really hates lawyers because of stuff like that. He went off on that for a few minutes. Even Robin was blown away when Howard said that Giuliani not only has to pay his ex-wife the $7 million but also the legal fees for the divorce. Howard went into his usual discussion about marriage and how guys don't realize what they're getting into when they get married. He says that marriage is signing a contract and when a marriage is over they have to pay. Attorney Dominic Barbara called in and told Howard that the $7 million is post-tax income so it's much more that $7 million that Rudy will be paying. That led to even more discussions about divorces and how insane the legal system is.
Howard quickly announced the fact that they're going to be playing The Weakest Dink in a couple of weeks and you can enter for the chance to be one of the contestants at Dink.iWon.com.
Howard spent a couple of minutes talking about Perfect 10 magazine and how publisher Norm Zadeh seems to just print up a bunch of copies for his friends. Howard doesn't seem to think that there's much of distribution for some reason.
Howard ended up on the subject of the stock market again today. He said he hates to say it but he thinks that the terrorists have won. Their actions have led to the country not having confidence in the President and that's why the market has gone down so much.
Howard got back to Perfect 10 and mentioned that he saw the article about Amber Smith who was in ''Private Parts.'' In the interview she talks about how she would love to date Howard if he ever breaks up with his girlfriend. Howard said that was very nice to read. He also congratulated Norm for getting out another issue of the magazine.
Howard took a few more phone calls and one woman, Roberta, said she wanted to be his girlfriend Beth's hand maiden. Howard figured she wanted money to do something like that but she said she didn't. Roberta told Howard that she just wanted to meet Howard and that was her way of getting in. The woman said she gets a monthly check from her ex-husband so she doesn't need any money. Howard invited her down to talk about it with him sometime in the near future. The woman ended up hanging up before they could set anything up though.
Howard promoted tonight's E! show which features Catherine Bell. He talked about that for a short time and then said that E! has come to him and suggested that they do a special thing on Thursdays where they'd put same day coverage on that night. Howard said that's a good idea but it's put a lot of pressure on him.
Howard killed some time talking about a bunch of news stories. He talked about the Pope and how the guy can barely move on his own anymore. Howard said it's like watching a new ''Weekend at Bernie's'' movie. He said he was watching him making a speech and the announcers weren't even sure what language the guy was speaking. Howard also said that he pitched an idea to Les Moonves over at CBS for a new reality TV show where people would pick the next pope. He went through some of the ideas he had for that before moving on to some other quick subjects.
Howard has suggested that the basketball season go all year round since so many players end up getting in trouble in the off-season. He mentioned the latest player who allegedly threatened an ex-girlfriend on the phone recently and got arrested for it.
Since he was talking about Beth Howard mentioned an article that appeared in the paper while he was on vacation. Neal Travis reported that Howard and Beth were seen at a jewelry shop and it was assumed that they were shopping for engagement rings or something. He said some other reporter picked up that story and claimed that Howard is getting married. Howard said that's not true and he'll never get married again.
Another caller claimed that he saw Carmen Electra making out with John Leguizamo at a Columbian restaurant. Howard could barely understand the guy after that statement so he ended up goofing on him and had to hang up. He said he hadn't heard an accent like that since Speedy Gonzalez. Howard said that the guy was probably lying because Leguizamo has a wife and 2 kids and Carmen is engaged to be married.
Howard played a clip of Pam Anderson talking about breaking up with Kid Rock when she was on Larry King recently. Howard predicted the break up shortly after Pam revealed that she had Hepatitis C. Robin had pulled a couple of other clips of Pam talking about the Hep-C. She says that she has to go through chemotherapy which she'll probably start later this year. She said she's going to take a year off from her career to go through that nightmare. In another clip she talks about how she still thinks she got the Hep-C from Tommy Lee by sharing a tattoo needle. In the final clip she apologizes to her kids for everything that's gone on.
Howard said it was Beth's birthday so he figured he'd ask her what she wanted. She said she wanted to get a bracelet or some piece of jewelry. Howard called some friends and asked where to go. This Mayfair place was recommended so they went down as they were closing up one night. They looked at what they had but Beth didn't like anything she saw so they left. That was it. They ended up going to another shop and found a nice ring, that was anything but a wedding ring, and bought it.
Howard thought he had the owner of Mayfair on the phone but when the guy said Howard was there looking for a nose ring but they couldn't find a wheelbarrow big enough for him, Howard knew it wasn't the guy. It was Sal the Stockbroker.
Mariann said goodbye after that. Whenever she talks now, Fred plays a crow cawing sound effect because she sounds so much like one. Artie started that not too long ago when he started making the caw sound effect when she called in one time.
Gary came in and said he saw pictures of all of the women that went on the trip and Radzinski may have had the smallest boobs of the bunch. He only saw them in their bikinis but Howard demanded to see the pictures himself. He checked them out and wondered what the hell went on during that vacation. She was topless in some of the pictures but had her hands over her breasts.
Radzinski went on to tell a story about getting a massage while she was over there. She said they stayed in the nicest hotel there was in Istanbul. She said that the other girls got massages from this good looking masseuse and she was last in line. She said she went in nude wearing a towel. The guy puts a sheet over her ass as she laid face down on the massage table. She described how he eventually started rubbing his aroused penis in her hand as she laid there getting rubbed down. She said she didn't stop him because she was actually thinking that she might want to have sex with the guy. She said she wasn't sure she wanted to do anything. He eventually moved to her other side and continued to rub himself on the other hand. He eventually had her sit up and massaged her breasts and stomach. She sat through that too but when the guy leaned over and moaned in her ear, she took off. She said she had to go and ran upstairs to her room. The other girls said the guy didn't try anything with them. They also told Radzinski that she had been down there for two hours! She now realizes that she was molested by this guy.
Howard wanted to know if they could reenact the massage for the E! show. Artie volunteered for the part of the molesting masseuse. Howard and Artie were doing their Arab guy impressions for a short time goofing around with what the guy must have done when Robin ran out of the room.
Howard took a couple of phone calls about the story. One guy said that the story was good but he had a boner sitting in his truck. He said he may have to pleasure himself because of it. Another caller said he used to massage women and when they'd fall asleep he'd have sex with them. That led to a discussion about how some guys are able to get laid by these masseuses. Howard said he's gotten massages but none of the women ever offer to do anything to him. He told a story about how one masseuse may have wanted to do something to him but he wasn't interested at the time because he'd just had sex with Beth about 12 times. The masseuse apparently wanted Howard to be on the table nude and roll over on his back but he refused. He thinks that she may have wanted to do something to him. He said Beth went to the same woman later on and the woman ended up rubbing her inner thighs and got too close to her private parts. Robin Q figures that she must have been bi-sexual.
Howard had to take a break and he announced that Gilbert Gottfried was coming up next. Artie was thrilled and surprised to hear that he was coming in. He said he loves Gilbert and he didn't know he was coming in.
Howard said when Gilbert walked in he wanted to say he was looking well but he couldn't. Instead he said ''You're looking... Gilbert.'' Howard said that with the hair cut he has now he looks like a Tibetan Monk.
Howard plugged Gilbert's appearances and then read a negative article about one of his shows. The reviewer said that Gilbert was flopping with his Bela Lugosi doing the ''Who's on First'' bit so he did some homosexual humor and won the audience back.
Howard spent some time talking to Gilbert about some of the voices he does for commercials and stuff. They spent a while talking about these Afflak commercials he does where he's the voice of a duck that says only one thing... ''AFFLAK.'' Gilbert said they have him record the voices for hours and hours just to get their money's worth out of him. He said he didn't think the commercials would work but he was wrong. They became huge hits with people for some reason.
Howard told a story about running into Gilbert while he was out at a restaurant. He had just finished when he came out and saw Gilbert nearby. He recommended the restaurant but even Gilbert's girlfriend knew that he was too cheap to go to such a nice place. Gilbert was heading to a bar in the hotel where the restaurant was to meet some friends so he didn't go to the restaurant.
Howard and Artie were having a lot of fun with Gilbert making ''fag jokes'' and goofing on ''Hollywood Squares'' for a while. Gilbert said that when Whoopi leaves the show Henry Winkler is taking over as producer. He claims that they're going to have a bunch of big name stars on the show. Gilbert said he's not sure if he's going to be on the show as often as he was. Howard, Gilbert and Artie had a lot of fun with that too. They were imagining what the show would be like with Oscar winners from 50 years ago. They also mentioned some almost-celebrities who will probably be on the show like Scott Baio and Donny Most.
Howard took a call from a guy who said that Gilbert is the best guest Howard has. The caller asked for Gilbert to do some of his Dracula Gottfried character but Gilbert just laughed. Howard asked Gilbert if he saw the Pope making his speech the other day which led to Gilbert doing his Dracula voice as the Pope. They played with that for a short time. Howard also said that Gilbert is going to be on the August 6th episode of ''Son of the Beach'' playing Dracula Gottfried in ''Ham Stroker's Suck My Blood.''
Howard told Gilbert about the TV show pitch he made for the ''Pick the Pope'' idea he has. He said they'd have people audition for the Pope's position in front of people like Paula Abdul like people are doing on ''American Idol.''
Howard took a break and came back to do Robin's news segment. Gilbert stuck around to make jokes about the stories she covered as he usually does. Howard started off the news playing one of The Onion Radio News bits. The Onion is a phony news paper and they put out these funny clips of fake stories. Today's was about how old people took on a gang and lost. They reported that all of the old people were killed when they took on the gang.
Howard also took a call from the owner of the jewelry store he talked about earlier where he and his girlfriend visited. The owner said he wasn't there at the time and his son and daughter took care of him. He said that he only told one person about Howard coming into his store so he's not guilty of telling the newspaper he was in there. Howard said he'll get to the bottom of it eventually.
Howard goofed on the Hollywood Squares thing for a couple more minutes and talked about Jerry Lewis' blowing up like a balloon. Howard asked Gilbert if he knew anything about that since he's a comedian too. Gilbert has no idea what's going on with that head but he said he's worried about Louie Anderson's head. He ended up doing an impression of Louie on ''Family Feud'' that was hilarious. He had Artie in stitches. They finally got to the news around 10:15.
Howard said that Gary came in before the show and asked him if he wanted to ''be controversial like he was back in the old days.'' Gary said that's not exactly what he said though. He said he asked if Howard wanted to ''stir it up'' a little with something on the show today. He said he'd explain it to him off the air because it was dumb and boring to talk about on the air.
Howard and Fred continued to goof on Gary about his statement even after he moved on taking phone calls. One guy saw the E! show last night and said that Catherine Bell had a hair lip. Howard said other than that she was hot. He said she was kind of big too though.
Another caller brought up last night's ''America Idol'' which Howard hadn't seen yet. He and Robin spent some time discussing the show and how bad Paula Abdul is on it. She tries to defend the awful singers on the show and Howard seems to hate that. He played a clip of her defending one person's horrible performance. Howard also talked about the fat guy on the show who just repeats the performer's names 3 times and gives his opinion.
Howard said he didn't want to start watching NBC's new show ''Meet the Parents'' but he got sucked into it. He said it's another winner. He said they have 3 guys who want to date a girl and they compete against the others to win a date with this girl. The winner gets to take the girl to Hawaii for a week and bang her according to Howard. Howard said the father of this girl was a gym teacher but they lived in a beautiful house. Howard said Beth thinks that they must have set the guy up in a nice house for the show or something.
A listener called in and asked Howard if he watches MTV's ''Sorority Life.'' Howard said he saw it but doesn't like it because it's boring. Gary said girls who are that consumed with the ''sorority life'' are a little disturbing anyway.
A caller told Howard he saw Mary McCormack (Howard's movie wife) on Craig Kilborn's show last night talking about how she puts Howard on TiVo so she can watch him when she wants to. That led to Howard talking about how great Mary's natural breasts were. He was soon talking about his mother's breasts and how he once saw them when she walked out into the hall naked when he was a kid. Howard said they were huge. Artie said his mother's breasts were big too and he got an eyeful one time when she wiped tears from her eyes with her t-shirt. He said he ran to his room after seeing that.
Howard ended up talking about something completely different a minute later. He talked about a Veterinarian researcher who was going to do some AIDS testing by using 6 cats because they have a similar type of AIDS as humans do. When PETA found out they started hassling the guy and he eventually gave up on the research. Howard said if he had AIDS he'd be pissed that these PETA people are stopping research on something that needs animals to be used in the testing process.
During a commercial break Howard was talking about wheat beer. When he came back he spent a little time talking about that. He said it's like these people who smoke clove cigarettes. There's plenty of good, commercial beers out there but some people have to try these other wacky things. Howard eventually asked Gary to get him some of this wheat beer so he can try it himself.
Stuttering John came in to talk about the new ''Austin Powers: Goldmember'' movie premiere. He went to see it and said there weren't really any celebrities at the premiere. Seth Green was the only one there according to John. He said the movie was really good though. Howard was hoping that it would be bad for some reason.
John mentioned that Britney Spears has a cameo in the movie and she looks really hot. Howard ended up talking about Britney's restaurant which is called Nyla. He's heard that the place is just mediocre but a lot of hot chicks hang out there.
Howard had John get back to the Austin Powers thing. John said he thinks this one will be huge and will probably break all kinds of records.
Geraldo came in a few minutes later and spent a few minutes talking about his age and the fight he had with Frank Stallone many years ago on Howard's show. Howard pointed out how they invented the celebrity boxing thing way back then and how FOX has taken the idea and run with it.
Howard spent some time talking to Geraldo about being half Jewish and how that worked out. He also spent some time talking about the Jews and the Palestinians with Geraldo. Geraldo seems to think that those two groups fighting will go on long after we're all gone.
Howard wanted to move on to talk to Geraldo about all of his marriages. Geraldo talked about how he's staying involved with his kids even after his last divorce but they didn't spend much time on that.
Howard said Geraldo was there to promote some show called ''The Pulse'' that's on Thursday nights on FOX TV at 9pm.
Geraldo and Howard spent a bit of time discussing the marriage thing and Howard wanted to know why Geraldo would do it again. Howard said that Geraldo will eventually cheat on his newest woman eventually because that's what he's always done. Geraldo said he's not so sure about that anymore now that he's 59 years old. He seems to think that he's done and this will be the last woman for him.
At one point near the end of the interview Geraldo was telling Howard how he thinks that when women marry young their youth is worth something and they should be paid for it. Therefore they should get money if a divorce ever happens. Robin and Howard sounded pretty surprised to hear that.
Geraldo also told Howard about a segment he did for ''The Pulse'' featuring this rapper, Lurch, who cannibalized his girlfriend after taking PCP. Geraldo said they found this guy with part of his girlfriend's lung still hanging from his mouth after he chewed through her chest. He said the guy is going to now plead innocent because of insanity.
Chaunce Hayden (ChaunceHayden.com) called in and told Howard a story about Geraldo coming on to his girlfriend one time. Chaunce said he was doing Geraldo's gossip TV show years ago and while he was on the panel Geraldo sat down next to his girlfriend and put his hand on her knee. He claims that Geraldo then moved his hand up farther as the interview went on. Geraldo said he doesn't recall doing that though. Howard wrapped up the interview a short time after that.
Howard wondered if they were ''stirring it up'' like Gary thought they would. Howard kept goofing on him about that whole thing during this segment. Gary said they'll probably get a Cease and Desist within 2 hours because they're playing this unauthorized stuff. Howard said ''Oooh, I'm scared'' and continued to play bits and pieces of it. Howard said he just doesn't get it. He doesn't get the whole Bruce Springsteen thing at all.
Vinnie Favale from CBS called in and said it really is a big deal to have this album to play. He said there are only like 4 full albums out there so Howard really is ''stirring it up.'' Howard said that's all hype and there are more than 4 out there. Vinnie says that even David Letterman doesn't have a copy of the album and Bruce is appearing on the show next week. Vinnie said he was excited to hear this new stuff on the air.
Dave Jockers from Howard's Cleveland affiliate called in and said he's not stirring anything up. He said his station has the album... but they haven't played any of it. A couple of other callers didn't think it was that big of a deal either. One guy said Howard could have been playing ''Hungry Heart'' and no one would know the difference.
Howard said he'd rather listen to Mystikal the rapper. He went on to play a little more of the Bruce album and goofed on Gary for liking the music. While one slow track was playing he pretended to be Gary loading his kids into the car seat in the Honda while listening to Bruce. Artie is a fan of Bruce's too so he ended up recreating some of the raps that Bruce does before singing some of his songs. He knew them word for word which was kind of disturbing.
Howard continued to goof on Gary about ''stirring things up'' and the fact that he listens to Bruce. Gary told Howard that the album is coming out next Tuesday. Howard, pretending to be an outlaw DJ, was saying that he welcomes the cease and desist and he'd just rip it up if he gets one.
Howard moved on to other things after playing the CD. He brought up a few news stories and spent some time on that. He mentioned that the creator of ''American Idol'' wants to recreate The Monkees group. Howard also brought up Lance Bass from N'Sync and how he's going to go into space. He talked about how weird that whole thing is and what a waste it is.
The Michael Jackson story was up next. Howard spent a little time talking about Jackson alleging that Tommy Mottola is a racist and devilish. Howard joked that no one is scared of Jackson, including Tommy Mottola, when he makes statements like that.
Howard said there's some web site out there that claims to have video of OJ Simpson having an orgy with two women and while he's with them he talks about how he used to be Howard Stern's boss. Howard said OJ goes around telling people that but he was never his ''boss.'' He just sat on the board of Infinity Broadcasting for a while.
Howard brought up this HBO special that Robin Williams did. Howard saw it and was bothered by the fact that Williams drank tons of water during the show. He was amazed by the amount of water he drank during this one hour and 45 minute special. He and the other guys goofed on Williams and the way he acted during the special. They tried to figure out where all the water went and how he didn't have to pee during the show. Howard suggested that they just put a water trough on the stage for him to drink out of.
Stuttering John said he's thinking about calling ''7 On Your Side'' about his health coverage through the station too. He said that he has a lot of problems getting stuff paid for when he's got doctor bills and stuff. Gary was also complaining about it. He said that everyone in his area of Connecticut has dropped out of that health plan because they're so bad.
Tom Chiusano came in and said that he wasn't around when all of this went down. He said that everything had been handled by the time he came back from vacation. Howard said Tom probably had to do damage control with the higher-ups in the company.
Later in the show the guy who won the TiVo called in and spoke to Howard about what happened for a couple of minutes. He said he got the runaround from a couple of people he thinks were interns. Greg Fitzsimmons was in by then and said he gets the run around when he calls Howard's show too. The interns ask him all kinds of questions when he calls to talk to Gary. He sounded pretty annoyed by that. Howard said he's going to call this guy to help him get some stuff he wants done around his show. He said he was promised that his studio would be expanded when he signed his new contract and that hasn't happened yet. Howard said they're going to be calling ''7 On Your Side'' like every day.
Howard played a couple of funny ''The Onion Radio News'' bits before Robin got to her stuff. One of the clips was about how RC Cola was celebrating its 10th product sale in it's 68 year history. Howard and Greg spent a couple of minutes talking about how cheap and bad the commercials were for RC Cola years ago. Greg said that Bill Cosby was actually the guy who used to do the commercials for RC Cola.
Howard wondered if Greg ever does commercials to make extra money. Greg said that he did a commercial for Rogaine and made about $30,000 doing that. Howard said that his girlfriend did one for Sam Adams Light and made some good money. Howard was kind of upset that she had her ass squeezed in the commercial though. He said he went to the set and there were a bunch of good looking guys appearing in it and hanging out with Beth. Greg said he's got a friend that has made over half a million bucks just doing Holiday Inn commercials and he hates doing them.
Howard did the top 5 songs and ended up talking about how hot Avril Lavigne is again. He saw some pictures of her and in one of them she didn't look so good in it. That led to them talking about how she wears these hip hugger jeans and a thong underneath. John saw her on some show where her microphone box was dragging her jeans down because they were so low. He said she had to keep pulling them back up and you could see her thong.
As Howard was getting ready to do the news Greg interrupted him and said that he wanted to tell a story about a recent massage he had. He said he went to this legitimate massage place to get a massage because he threw his back out. He had to get naked and all he had on was a towel. He was laying on his back and the female masseuse was massaging him from his feet up. As she got closer to his groin he felt some ''pressure'' there... He popped a rod while she was massaging him. He said he tried not to think about it but it went up and created a tent out of his towel. He said he'd never cheat on his wife so he just hoped that the woman would move from that area. She kept massaging his hips and stomach area under the towel. He's still not sure if she would have finished him off or not. He said he told a friend of his about this and he got the number. Greg said his friend is going to check it out and see if the masseuse would do anything or not.
Howard ended up talking about his massages too and how no one ever offers to do anything to him. A woman called in who says she's a masseuse and she'd never do anything like that. She said she never even looks to see how big a guy is when she's massaging them. Howard said he wishes these women knew what guys wanted. He said he'd like for the masseuse to finish him off before the massage so he could relax and enjoy the massage without having sexual thoughts.
Howard said another masseuse called in who claims that she does give happy endings. It turned out to be Wendy the Retard who will say anything you ask her to say. The other masseuse hung up as soon as Wendy got on though. Howard played with that for a minute and asked Wendy if she ever gave a happy ending to Greg Fitzsimmons. She said she had and she gives them to other guys too. She mentioned a couple of names but who knows if she was telling the truth or not. Howard spoke to her for a couple of minutes and then got off the phone and took a break. After the break Greg stuck around to comment on Robin's news.
Howard came back and talked about Mike Myers and how lucky he is with the Austin Powers movies. He also talked about how ''weird looking'' he thinks Myers is. Howard seems to think that Myers would be looking for work like Dana Carvey is if he hadn't had such freaky luck with the Austin Powers thing. Howard was also wondering why Myers hasn't thrown Carvey a bone with a part in one of the Austin Powers movies. He was also pointing out how mellow and boring Myers interviews are. He was also bad mouthing Beyoncé Knowles saying that the four word she won't be hearing next year at the Academy Awards is ''And the winner is...'' He said it's already over for her. He went on for a few minutes about those two before moving on.
Howard talked about President Bush and how he's going on a month long vacation to his ranch in Texas for almost a month. Howard said that Roy Rogers was a cowboy and he didn't spend that much time on his ranch. He said that you'd think if you were doing such a bad job at being President, you'd want to spend more time at the White House. Howard wondered if Bush has Indians running around his ranch so he can play ''Cowboys and Indians.'' Howard and Artie goofed on him about that for a few minutes. Artie also pointed out that Osama bin Laden never goes on vacation, he's hating us all the time.
Howard brought up AOL/Time Warner and how they've gone down the tubes lately. He had a list of what some of the big wigs at the company have lost lately. Ted Turner was up near $10 billion in losses. Howard had some suggestions for what they should have done to make the company more diversified. He then went on to pat himself on the back for the stuff he did for Infinity radio after starting with them. He also wondered why there isn't more ''synergy'' at his company and why he's not getting more offers from some of the other divisions in the company.
Howard moved on and said he was heading out to dinner last night when he walked past Peter's Restaurant and heard someone saying ''Hey now!'' to him. It turned out to be John Stamos and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos. Howard and his girlfriend Beth hung out with them for a short time until some guy came over and told him that he had to change shirts to be in the restaurant. Howard said he was wearing a nice, neat sleeveless shirt and the guy wanted him to wear something nicer. Howard said meanwhile the women in the place were wearing belly shirts. Howard thought it was kind of bizarre but didn't argue with him because it's his restaurant so he left. He said he went over to Citrus and sat right down no problem. Howard said he was kind of bummed because he wanted to talk to John and Rebecca. Howard was wearing something similar this morning and Artie said there was nothing wrong with it. Robin sounded like she was surprised to hear that Howard was talking to John and Rebecca again. He'd stopped for a short time after John said something about him in an interview a couple of months back.
Howard took some phone calls and one woman called in to talk about how some overweight people really can't lose weight because they have thyroid problems. It turned out she was talking about herself and said that she ballooned up from 119 pounds to 160 and was told she has a thyroid problem. Howard told her that isn't true, she just eats too much. She claims that she only eats one meal a day so Howard told her to try ''no meals a day'' and see what happens. He said if they sent her over to Africa where they ''eat rocks'' she'd have no problem losing weight.
A caller told Howard that the episode of the E! show that was supposed to air last night, Jessica the Stripper Orgasm record, didn't air. Howard had the E! people look into it but they didn't come up with an answer very quick so Howard spent some time talking about AOL. (We later found out the show did air but it's a two parter) He said that they have an offer for 1000 free hours on their service but you have to use it in a 45 day period. Howard said there's only 1080 hours in a 45 day period so you'd have to be on almost all the time to get the free 1000. Howard took a couple more phone calls to kill some more time. One nutty woman was rambling about Howard disappointing her by talking about fat people the way he does. Howard figures she's fat herself. She says that she's very good looking and looks like Marilyn Monroe. Howard said she probably looks like Marilyn looks now. The woman kept saying that Howard is a mean person but she wouldn't get off the phone. She was making comments that made her sound like a little child so Howard goofed on her about that which just pissed her off even more. He eventually hung up on her.
After taking a break Howard talked about how they found cocaine in The Who's John Entwistle's blood after he died of a heart attack back in June. Artie feigned surprise when he heard that.
Howard spent some more time with Evil David Letterman who did a really lame top 10 list for the reasons he's staying at CBS instead of going to ABC. Here's the list:
Howard spent some time talking about his ratings in Cleveland, New York City and L.A. He said he's been number one in Cleveland for two ratings periods now. He also just went back up to number 1 in New York City after dropping to number 2 or 3 after his divorce. He complained about how reporters thought that it was Howard's downfall after the divorce thing happened. Now he's back to number one and no one is saying word. Howard also talked about how he's not number one in Los Angeles. He said there are like 4 Spanish stations ahead of them now.
Gary brought up a bunch of tabloid stories for the guys to talk about. They talked about Vanna White, Christopher Darden, Halle Berry, Wesley Snipes and a bunch of other stories that he quickly mentioned. Howard also took a phone call from a woman who wanted some ideas for what kind of tape she should make to get on ''Survivor.'' Howard gave her a couple of ideas but she didn't like any of them. He told her to gang bang some guys from her college or walk through Harlem in black face. Something crazy like that. Howard also suggested that she nail her breasts to a board or something like that. The woman wanted no part of any of his suggestions.
Howard took a break and then brought up a story he heard about a kid who was in football camp and got hazed. The guys tea bagged him. Howard played tape of the guy's mother talking about the tea bagging and he said a mother should never even know what tea bagging is. KC came in and talked about how funny it is to do stuff like that to guys. Howard played more tape of the mother talking about the kid being attacked. It turns out he also had a banana shoved up his ass. KC let out a laugh when he heard that but no one else was laughing. Howard said he's completely heterosexual and he's never even thought about doing something like that to another guy. KC dismissed it as just being stuff that guys do. He said ''guys do gay stuff'' sometimes. Howard said it's even worse when the kid's mother gets involved. The woman ends up breaking down in tears while she's talking about the incident.
Gary was in so he told Howard a story about going to football camp. He said some of the guys he was with, the rookies, had to go somewhere and get hazed. They had to get naked and pass a 45 record by holding it in their butt cheeks. The rookies were all shell shocked when they came back according to Gary. KC came in and told Howard his college buddy Bucket Head tried to shove a whiffle ball bat up his ass when he was sleeping one time. He said stuff like that just happens. He said he got pissed at Bucket Head but if the shoe was on the other foot he would have found it funny. He also talked about this ''Oookie Cookie'' thing that guys do. At first he said he brother did this but then took it back and said he didn't. He said that guys stand around in a circle and whack off on an Oreo cookie. The last guy to go on the cookie has to eat it. KC insisted that his brother didn't do that.
Howard let Evil Dave do some more of his bad lines during the segment. Evil Dave sometimes has trouble with names and words when he's trying to get a line out so it's kind of funny. He really had trouble with Anna Kournikova's name out. KC said he worked on that joke with Evil Dave yesterday and thought they had it down. Howard told KC to remove jokes like that if they're having problems with it.
This guy called in who claims that he spoke to Howard back around Mother's day. He said he was able to get oral sex from his girlfriend's mother after working it for a while. He wanted to win a prize from Howard but Howard told him that he'd already won the oral sex so he ended up hanging up on him.
Howard spoke to Anastacia about her name and if she had any black in her. She said that she's ''Wonder Bread white'' and Anastacia is her real name.
Howard checked out her body and asked her some of her measurements and stuff like that. He also wondered if she has a boyfriend. She said she doesn't have one now and the last time she did was about a year ago. She said he doesn't deserve to be talked about so she didn't mention anything about him. Howard heard that she dated AJ from the Backstreet Boys but she said that was just a rumor. She said she met him but didn't date him. Howard and Robin tried digging to find out who she dated but she wouldn't say. She said her last boyfriend cheated on her.
Howard asked her how she takes care of herself while she's on the road. He wondered if she uses a vibrator. She said she can take care of her self just fine without the vibrator. She also told Howard she has a guy she's been seeing. Howard and Robin figured out that he's a ''booty call'' guy who she's not really in love with. She can just get laid when she wants to. She said she's just having fun with the guy.
Howard found out that Anastacia dated a black guy so he spent some time trying to get details about that. She said she dates all different races and colors. She said she's dated Italians, Jewish, German, Dutch but no Asian guys.
Howard said he doesn't know her music so he wanted to play some of her album ''Freak of Nature.'' He played some of it and said she really does sing like a black chick. Howard also read that she sang at Steven Spielberg's wedding. She said she used to be a wedding singer so, yes, she did sing at his wedding.
Howard asked Anastacia who she's friends with and found out that she's good friends with Carmen Electra. She said she's even seen Carmen nude while changing clothes. Howard spoke to her about that and Carmen dating Dennis Rodman. She didn't want to get into details about that whole thing though. Howard moved on and asked her about her own life. They talked about her father and how he left her family when she was just 3 years old. She said that she doesn't have a relationship with the guy and he just recently contacted her to try and get closer to her... now that she's famous. She said that won't be happening though.
Anastacia sang the National Anthem real quick for Howard to prove that she knows the words. Robin said she did screw up something in the song but couldn't tell her exactly what it was without hearing it over again. Howard took a couple of quick phone calls and then took a break before the gossip game.
Howard came back from break and talked about how Anastacia was discovered and how she's already sold like 4 million albums so far. She says that she didn't take any singing lessons or anything, she was just lucky enough to have this great voice thanks to her parents. Howard played another track from her album and found out she just shot a video for one of her songs.
Howard got Mike Walker on the phone so they could play The Gossip Game. Howard and Mike spent a couple of minutes talking about Anastacia before the game. Mike knew that Anastacia went to one of her proms with Malcolm Jamal Warner so they spoke about that for a short time. She also went to a prom with the son of the guy who owned the Chicago Bulls at the time. They also spoke to her about her Crones disease scar on her stomach. Howard told her that Crones disease is a psychosomatic problem and she just needed to read the book that saved him from back pain, ''Healing Back Pain : The Mind-Body Connection'' by Dr. John Sarno. He said that would have cured her. She said she was only 13 at the time.
They finally go to the game so here's how it goes... Each week Mike Walker calls in with four gossip stories. Three of the stories are from his National Enquirer gossip column. One of the stories is false. Everyone tries to pick out the false story. The stories will appear in Mike's gossip column each week after he plays with Howard. Here are this week's stories:
After the game Howard spent a short time playing a couple more clips from Anastacia's album and then wrapped up the interview.
