No one knows the exact details, but he was a shut in who spent most of his time in the basement, ignoring his wife and kids. I suppose it's not going too far out on a limb to say his wife stepped out on him, considering she was remarried shortly after the divorce (2001). He has always said he never cheated, he's never said she didn't.
I have heard him refer to this basement and a fishtank. what was this all about? I mean did he ever say what he was doing in the basement?
It's funny how a younger Hot blonde can get you out of the house. He also socializes a lot more too. Lets also not forget that he drinks on Thursdays and weekends. That used to be a big no no for Howard. Do you guys think he just didn't want to be seen with Allison? I think he loves being seen with Beth(Who wouldn't). I also wonder what Allison thinks of Howard going out and doing things with Beth that he would never do with her.
Why should she care? She married someone with more money than Howard.
He would get home, eat, and retire to the basement. He had a home theater and his gigantic salt water fish tank down there. He'd stay down there and watch TV, claiming he was doing "show research." He never wanted to go out or socialize, so (according to him) Alison had to rely on tennis lessons at the club, and yapping with her "Long Island yenta" friends for social interaction.
who'd she marry?
Everyone says she married David Simon, originally from Indiana, CEO of the Simon Property Group. But that is incorrect, an urban myth. She really married someone named David Scott Simon, from Long Island. Probably a regular guy, who is spending Stern's millions.
Sorry to ruin another one of DLM's running jokes. Then again, he never was one for accuracy.
