Oprah has Execs Trained Like Dogs

February 24, 2011

Howard continued to fume about his photo being stripped from the Sirius XM ad in O magazine, laughing at Sirius XM execs for ever investing in her channel, as it doesn’t drive subscriptions–not that they care: “I tell you [Oprah’s] got them trained like dogs.”

Howard marveled at the $50 million Oprah collects in exchange for almost no personal commitment.

Howard also had a problem with the kid gloves he’s seeing on the new season of ‘American Idol,’ saying he still liked Steven Tyler as a judge (and liked looking at Jennifer Lopez) but, “I found myself missing Simon’s input…there’s sort of this nice thing happening where everyone’s nice to everyone.”
