Is Robin Quivers leaving 'Howard Stern Show'?
Shock jock Howard Stern's sidekick Robin Quivers may not be on his Sirius-XM satellite radio show for much longer.
In an exclusive interview with Radar Online, Quivers said that she may soon leave to do her own thing. "I love to do radio and television and I've always wanted my own television show, so I've been putting out feelers for those kinds of things," she told the website.
And she apparently already has a goal in mind: to potentially replace Oprah as the queen of daytime TV. (The final episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" airs May 25.) "Let's hope," she replied when asked if she was angling to replace Winfrey.
"It will be like a talk show, but with subjects that I'd be interested in," Quivers told Radar of her television plans. "I think I have some interesting things to say and I don't think anybody out there is saying them."
Stern signed a new five-year deal in December with Sirius-XM, but had said that the rest of the cast would be negotiating their own contracts. Not long after, Quivers announced her own deal on the show: "I have decided ... after a long and very wonderful association with this show for almost 30 years ... that it's time ... It is my decision to go out ... after this next five years!" It's not known whether she has a clause in her deal that allows her to leave before the five years is up.
Quivers and Stern, who are both active on Twitter, have not commented on her revelation to Radar.
Do you think "The Howard Stern Show" will be as good without her? Can she be the next talk-show queen?
Robin Quivers says her breasts grew back after reduction surgery
Howard Stern Show co-host Robin Quivers says her breasts have grown back to their original size despite her breast reduction surgery.
Quivers suffered from gigantomastia, an abnormal overgrowth of breast tissue since puberty. On Monday morning's Howard Stern Show, she reminisced that a stripper once commented that one of Quivers' breasts was larger than her head.
Quivers revealed that she had hoped her breast reduction in 1990 would bring her down to a C-cup, but stated that the doctor performing the surgery chickened out in the operating room. "I couldn't do that," he told Quivers. "You're a D."
In 2009, Robin Quivers went bra shopping at the famous 'Town Shoppe' in Manhattan where she was measured as a Double G cup--as big as ever.
Is Howard Stern responsible for Gabourey Sidibe's success?
"Did they grow back to actual size?" asked an impressed Stern Monday. "How do they do that? How do your breasts grow back?"
Quivers shrugged and stated that bosom that has been the subject of hundreds of Howard Stern Show song parodies simply have "a mind of there own". "Maybe they would be bigger now if I hadn't had them reduced," she said.
"It's a miracle!" proclaimed Stern. "You're like a starfish! You know, if you cut off a starfish's leg it grows back?"
Quivers comforted herself with this consolation: "Well, they're not as big as a stripper's head anymore."
The most common causes of breast tissue regrowth after reduction surgery are pregnancy and weight gain. Quivers' weight has fluctuated over the past decade, but she lost 90 pounds thanks to exercise and her infamous "green drink" fasts designed by "Dr. Ronnie". Quivers is currently in training to run the New York City Marathon on Sunday November 7th.
