Howard played a few clips from Robin's press tour yesterday and marveled at her media savvy.
Fred agreed: "She's so eloquent." In one clip, Robin explained the show's take on 'Precious' star Gabourey Sidibe with a brilliant analogy: everyone had problems with award shows enabling a tipsy Mariah Carey, but no one thought twice about enabling Gabourey's eating problem: "Food addiction is the addiction that is acceptable."
In other clips, Howard listened to Robin hold court on a startling variety of other topics, even commenting intelligently--based only on information in the question she'd been asked--on Pittsburgh Steeler quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's sex scandal: "Boy, you pulled that one out...you're an expert. You could be on one of these shows, I'm telling you."
Robin offered no comment.
