VIDEO: From Boxer Muhammad Ali to Rocker Robert Palmer, Robin Quivers Recalls the Many Celebrities Who Propositioned Her Over the Years
“It turns out almost every guest we had on the show wanted to [get with] Robin,” Howard laughsOctober 27, 2023
Might as well face it, they’re addicted to Ms. Ophelia.
After John Stamos stopped by the Stern Show earlier this week, Howard couldn’t help but reminisce about the time the actor had hit on his ineffably intoxicating co-host, Robin Quivers. As Robin reminded listeners, Stamos wasn’t the only Hollywood star who’d made at pass at her, either. At one time or another, she’d also been propositioned by everyone from Oscar winner Will Smith and comedy legend Sam Kinison to musicians Clarence Clemons and “Bad Case of Loving You” singer Robert Palmer.
“He came and visited me in my little cubicle at K-Rock and said, ‘Who are you?’” Robin recalled of Palmer. “And I’m like, ‘What’s this guy doing in my room?’ I didn’t know how to deal with it.”
Howard reminded Robin she could’ve been with a smattering of famous athletes, too, including NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman, baseball legend Lenny Dykstra, and boxing icons “Smokin’ Joe” Frazier and even “the Greatest” himself, Muhammad Ali.
“You know Joe came to my book signing in Philly … He was very serious,” she said of Frazier. “And when I met Muhammad Ali … we took a picture together and wound up all wrapped up around each other,” she continued, “The photographer dropped her camera and said, ‘Are you two finished?’ And I said, ‘You have to forgive us because we’re falling in love.’ And Muhammad whispered in my ear: ‘You don’t know how right you are.’”
“Wow, imagine if you had banged Muhammad Ali,” Howard said. “Oy vey, that would’ve been amazing.”
“I was never going to bang Muhammad Ali,” she laughed.
Nevertheless, Howard was astounded. “You go back in time, and it turns out almost every guest we had on the show wanted to [get with] Robin,” he laughed.
