Howard welcomed Paula Gloria, the host of public TV's "Farther Down the Rabbit Hole," to discuss the constant prank calls she suffered at the hands of Sal and Richard. Howard asked Paula if she was a hippie, but Paula denied it, saying she picked up her favorite phrase, "Yantra and Mantra begets Tantra," from her sister. Howard tried to ask how Paula got started in public TV, which somehow led her to go off on a tangent about her personal wealth. After Paula explained that she was independently wealthy from buying cell phone licenses and selling them back to phone companies, she laughed that also lost it all in other similarly high-risk investments. Paula then took a quick turn into her crazy 9/11 "truth" theories, saying we "went to war over a cartoon." Howard asked if Paula thought the Holocaust was also a "cartoon," but Paula avoided the question.
Howard noted that Paula was pretty fit for her age and asked when she last had sex, so Paula claimed she had "transmuted" her sex drive before she went to India 8 years ago. Paula did admit that she used to repeat mantras during sex pre-transmutation and didn't like shave: "I'm my own person now...I like to go places where I don't have to wear any swimming suits...I'm a huge believer in sunlight therapy. I like it when sunlight hits the genitals."
Richard came in to introduce himself to Paula: "Hi, I'm Rusty." Paula said she was honored to meet Richard (and Sal), and told them that they've intimidated a lot of public TV producers into refusing to take live callers on their shows anymore. Howard wondered if Paula ever got angry, and Paula admitted that she does: "Hugely angry. We have to take park breaks and go into Gramercy Park and scream there." Howard then plugged Paula's special, which will air tonight at 7pm ET on Howard101.
