- Howard's Trip To Los Angeles. 8/9/99. 6:05am
Howard took off last Friday so he could fly out to California for some meetings. This morning he told Robin and the rest of the crew about some of the stuff he did out there. Thursday after the show he flew out and went to a meeting which lasted until midnight L.A. Time which is 3am NY time so Howard was up for just about 24 hours. The next day he sat pool side at the Four Seasons hotel with Ralph. They decided to go swimming and at one point Ralph scooped Howard up in his arms and carried him around like a woman. Howard said it was really gay. Howard also went out to a club called Ago and met Daisy Fuentes. He didn't invite her to sit with him though. Ralph told Howard they didn't need her at the table anyway because she's too fat. Howard didn't think she was fat but said she could use some breast implants. Howard also complained about the way Ralph ordered his meal. Ralph just complained about the whole thing and made Howard look like an ass. Howard told Robin that he also saw John McEnroe at the airport on the way out to California. John was flying out to L.A. also and told Howard he'd talk to him on the flight. Howard didn't see him on the plane and when he asked the flight attendant she told him he was sitting in the back of the plane. So Howard didn't get to talk to McEnroe. He said that some annoying Chinese woman sat next to him and annoyed the crap out of him during the flight. Howard went to a club called Bar Fly and said that every woman that walked in was better looking than the one before. He saw Ian Ziering from ''Beverly Hills 90210'' with his hot Playboy model wife. Howard was invited to go to some pajama party at the Playboy mansion but decided not to go. His agent told him he's better off not being seen there. Howard also hung out with music mogul Rick Rubin while he was out there. He got to go to his house and said it was really nice and huge.
- Director Of ''The Sixth Sense'' Calls In. 8/9/99. 7:25am
M. Night Shyamalan, director/writer of ''The Sixth Sense'', called in to talk to Howard this morning. Howard mentioned that he enjoyed the movie when he got a screening of it last week and Night wanted to tell Howard he's a fan of his. Howard also mentioned that ''The Sixth Sense'' opened number one this weekend pulling in $25,800,000. Very good for the first weekend. Night said he met Robin one time at the premiere of his movie ''Wide Awake'' but Robin didn't remember that. Howard spoke to Night for a few minutes about how much money he's making off of this movie. Night said that since it's his first big movie he's not making that much. He said he sold the script for $3 million. The budget was only $20 million. Howard and Robin were surprised how low that number was and Night said that didn't include Bruce Willis' fee. Night said Willis did pretty well. Night and his wife are Indian so Howard wanted to know what that red dot means on the women's forehead's. Night said he thinks it's just decorative. He said his wife doesn't always wear one but she does once in a while. Howard told Night to write something good for him to do. Night said he was thinking but didn't know what he could write. Howard keeps talking about how he wants to do another movie but he doesn't have a good script. Night lives down in Philadelphia and said he's staying there. He films all of his movies there.
- Shannon Briggs Shows Up. 8/9/99. 7:50am
Boxer Shannon Briggs showed up this morning. Last week Shannon said that if he didn't win his fight against Francois Botha this past weekend he'd get naked and wear a dunce cap. The fight was called a draw so he didn't really lose the fight but Robin said he took a hell of a beating. She was sitting ringside so she would know. Shannon came in and Howard told him he should have been able to beat a fat white guy. Howard told him he should be naked since he didn't win but he wasn't taking his clothes off. Shannon's girlfriend Alana was also there with him so Howard had her come in. He found Alana very attractive. He said he was very distracted by her beautiful breasts. Shannon and Alana have two children together but they're not married yet. Shannon's manager Mark also came in when Alana came in. Mark keeps telling Howard how they're trying to get a fight with Mike Tyson on December 11. It turns out they haven't signed a deal yet but they're promoting it like they have. Howard told Shannon that if he does fight Tyson and he wins that he'll kiss his ass right there on the show. He even said he'd do it in Macy's window. Shannon's manager kept telling Howard that he can definitely beat Tyson. But Robin pointed out that he lost the fight before this one and that guy took a pounding from Tyson. One listener called in and said that the newspapers are reporting that technically he lost the fight. A former sportscaster from Fox 5 in New York called in and said that he believes that Shannon could win. He said that Tyson hasn't been training since he got out of jail so there is a chance for Briggs. You can keep up on what Shannon is up to at www.shannonbriggs.com or www.shannonbriggs.net.
- Actress Joley Fisher Comes In. 8/9/99. 8:55am
Actress Joley Fisher came in to play 2 Truths and a Lie with Howard this morning. Howard said that Joley lives near him out on Long Island and he met her somewhere. She requested that she come on the show so Howard invited her on. Joley was on the TV series ''Ellen'' and is now appearing in the movie ''Inspector Gadget'' with Matthew Broderick. She'll also be appearing in a touring company of ''Cabaret'' starting September 8. Howard started out talking to Joley about her parents Connie Stevens and Eddie Fisher. Howard said he always found Connie attractive when he was younger. He didn't think much of Eddie Fisher though. Joley said she doesn't have a problem with her father. Howard also met Joley's husband Chris. Howard brought him in the studio for about a minute and said he looked like he was 50 years old. Joley said he's only in his late 30's though. Howard then played the 2 Truths and a Lie game where he reads 3 stories that Joley gave them. 2 of them are true and one is false. Here are her stories:
Howard and Robin knew that the story about Carrie was true because it was on an E! True Hollywood Story recently. Joley told them that it was the story about losing her virginity to Nic Cage that was false. She knew him but didn't lose her virginity to him. She went to Beverly Hills High School with him. After the game Howard spoke to Joley about working with Ellen Degeneres on the ''Ellen'' TV show. He asked her about the lesbian kiss they had on the show and Joley said it was written in the script that she had to tongue kiss Ellen. Howard then asked if she'd ever seen Ellen nude. Joley said she did see her topless once accidentally but never totally nude. She also said that they saw each other in bra and panties quite a bit. Howard figures Ellen was hitting on Joley because she was the cutest one on the show. Joley said she had a lesbian experience when she was a little girl but she didn't get into details. Howard then moved on to Joley's wedding after Gary told him that the wedding cost close to $600,000. Joley said that just wasn't true. Then he said she had 3 hair style changes during the wedding. That part was true. Howard said she must be high maintenance and figures that's why her husband's hair is gray. Howard had some notes on the guests who were at her wedding. Flip Wilson, Pauly Shore, John Tesh, Bernie Koppel and Alan Thicke were just a few that Howard mentioned. She grew up with Flip Wilson's daughters so they were bridesmaids in the wedding. Before Joley left she told Howard that she'll be taking over for Teri Hatcher in Cabaret starting September 8. She starts rehearsing tomorrow. Somehow Howard started singing a song from Cabaret.. very scary.
- Joley's breasts were fully developed D-cups at the age of 11.
- Joley lost her virginity to Nicolas Cage.
- Joley didn't know that Carrie Fisher was her half sister until Star Wars came out.
- Howard's Gay Side. 8/9/99. 9:45am
Howard has been talking about how he likes one of the Back Street Boys' songs. He's played it a couple of times in the past couple of weeks and he admits the song is gay but he enjoys it. He says once in a while he likes a gay song and doesn't think there's anything wrong with that. He played the song ''I Want It That Way'' today and KC came in to tell him that he really is gay. Howard pointed out that KC is the one who has a problem getting it up for women, not him. KC says that's a physical problem he has.. He's not gay. Then Howard was talking about the Back Street Boy who always has to show off his tattoos in the video's. He said even if all of the other guys are wearing suits this guy will be wearing a t-shirt showing off his tatt's. He said the guy's pencil thin moustache is kind of strange also. A little later in the show the mother of that guy, AJ, called in to complain about the way Howard was talking about him. She was a good sport and spoke to Howard for a few minutes. She said that her son just likes to be different than the other guys in the band. Then KC came in and asked the woman ''So what age did you know your son was gay?'' Howard told him to get out of the studio. ''He's not gay..'' Howard said to KC. The mother also said he's not gay. The mother runs the fan club for the band. Howard asked her some questions and found out she's got big breasts and weighs in at 130 pounds. She was the publicist for her son until recently but she said she quit.

- Leave Chevy Chase Alone. 8/10/99. 6:45am
As some of you may know, Howard and Chevy Chase were at war a couple of years ago after Chevy bad mouthed him on the Larry King show. Eventually they made up on air and decided not to fight anymore. Well Chevy recently called Gary to complain that the fans aren't leaving him alone even though the war is over. He asked Gary to ask Howard to remind everyone that the war is over and to please lay off especially when he's with his kids. Apparently a few people have said things to him when he's been in public with his young kids and it's upset them. Howard said he understands what Chevy is saying but also said this proves a point... Don't screw with Howard! His fans are very loyal and will go after people who bad mouth him with a vengeance.
- Gary Garver Celebrity Interviews. 8/10/99. 7:05am
Los Angeles board operator Gary Garver went out to some Star Trek convention to interview some celebrities.. or almost celebrities as the case may be. He interviewed Lee Merriwether, Richard Herd.. and please excuse the misspellings.. Erin Gray and Walter Koenig. Lee Merriwether stuck through a few easy questions but when he started asking sexual questions she found out he was from the Stern show and left. Richard Herd didn't last through more than 2 or 3 questions. Gary asked him who he liked better, his mother or father and that freaked him out. Erin Gray didn't last through many questions either. Walter Koenig hung in for a few questions but Gary said some of his answers were so long that he had to cut them down. Gary asked Koenig a question about anal sex and that upset him a little bit but he still stuck around. Gary brought up Howard's name and Koenig said he found Howard to be an interesting guy and thinks the show is funny 75% of the time.
- Sal The Stockbroker Drops In. 8/10/99. 7:40am
Sal The Stockbroker made a phony phone call to Bernhard Goetz. Bernie has been looking for a lost squirrel of his and Sal took the info and gave him a call. Howard played the tape and it was pretty funny. The description of the squirrel said that it has one big tooth or something like that so Sal took that and made some references to Gary with it. He had Bernie on the phone for a few minutes and had Bernie convinced that he had a squirrel matching his description. Sal then made so many Gary and horsetooth jackass references that Bernie had to hang up on him. After Howard played the call Sal announced that he's in a new band called Colon Cancer and he's opening for Ace Frehley in October. He had a CD with him but it somehow got lost when he came in to the studio. We didn't have the pleasure of hearing his music. Howard decided to play more Gary Garver interviews while Sal tried to find his CD... He never did find it. Gary Garver went to a Magic Johnson celebrity golf tournament and interviewed Magic and Charles Oakley. The Magic interview was pretty boring. Magic answered his questions in a dull monotone with nothing much to say. Charles Oakley was a better interview. He knew Gary was from the Stern show. Oakley played along with all of the questions right through ''How many dates do you have with a woman before introducing anal sex?'' Oakley said he doesn't do that. He also said he doesn't masturbate when Gary asked him about that. Oakley also said he wouldn't do a homosexual act for one million dollars.. He said he wouldn't do it for $100 million. After Howard played those tapes he got back to Sal. He still hadn't found the CD so Gary called him a loser and Sal goofed on Gary's teeth for a couple more minutes.
- Intern Beauty Pageant. 8/10/99. 8:15am
It's the end of another semester for the interns at the Stern show so it's time for another beauty pageant. This semester there are 5 women competing in the pageant. The judges include Howard's buddy Ralph, OJ Mask and Wood Yi. OJ Mask is Howard's friend Neil and Wood Yi is Steve the engineer. This pageant was run a little different than some in the past. Each contestant was judged on beauty, talent and personality but instead of individual scores they were given one overall score from each judge.

- Howard Goes Home Sick. 8/11/99. 6:05am
Howard came in first thing this morning but his voice was in bad shape. He was barely able to speak and when he did it was in a deep monotone. He blames the loss of his voice on his trip out to Los Angeles last week. He stayed up almost 24 hours last Thursday and thinks that's what caused the loss of his voice. He had a sore throat yesterday but didn't complain about it too much. He stuck around for about 45 minutes but since his voice wasn't getting any better he decided to take the rest of the morning off. He was looking forward to doing the show because they had some interesting guests lined up. They had the 16 year old kid who had sex with his teacher coming in and some guy who wants breast implants was also scheduled. Howard took a couple of phone calls while he was making his decision and a couple of them called him a pussy for not staying. King of all Blacks called in and told Howard he should go home. King said that he's on the same schedule as Howard and could sympathize with him. Eventually Howard broke the bad news that he was calling it a day and said he may take tomorrow off if his voice isn't better.

- Howard's Appearance On Larry King Live. 8/13/99.
Howard was a guest on CNN's Larry King Live TV show last night at 9pm. He was doing a favor for his favorite doctor, Dr. John Sarno. Howard has praised Sarno in the past for helping cure his chronic back pain. Sarno was the main guest on Larry King Live along with Howard, Defense Attorney Robert Shapiro, Rosie O'Donnell Producer Janette Barber and surgeon Patrick O'Leary. Howard called in from his home in Long Island to kiss Sarno's ass a little bit. Janette Barber also praised Sarno for helping her cure her chronic ankle pain. Both she and Howard were really behind Sarno's beliefs and made him seem like some kind of god. Robert Shaprio described how he's had to adjust his life to avoid getting back pain and Howard really pushed for Shaprio to read Sarno's book. He told Shapiro that he shouldn't have to adjust the way he picks up luggage and that's it's probably all in his mind. No one on the show was there to disagree with Sarno so there weren't any good arguments during the hour long show. Howard was still getting over his lost voice from earlier in the week but managed to hang in there for the full hour. He told Larry that he'd do anything for Dr. Sarno. Sarno's latest book, ''The Mindbody Prescription : Healing the Body, Healing the Pain'', will be number 2 on the New York Times Bestseller list next week. Howard said it's great reading for anyone suffering from back pain. Sarno also wrote ''Healing Back Pain : The Mind-Body Connection'' back in 1991. This is the book that got Howard on his way to a cure for his back pain.
