You know, this does bring up an observation (not necessarily a criticism) of the "evolution" of the Stern show. Remember in the 90's, when it was all about strippers coming in, and then slowly Howard brought in the porn stars? At first he always qualified it by saying that he was interested in their story, and didn't necessarily condone everything that the porn industry did and felt bad for a lot of these porn stars because they had psychological issues. Then slowly, I don't know exactly when, that qualification stopped and the show embraced porn in a different way.
Personally, i always have felt there is a line between nude modeling and strippers and porn; I don't think you have anything psychologically wrong to do Playboy, but there's something darker about the porn world. This girl is a perfect example, she's so desperate for attention she'll slit her throat, going even beyond sleeping with people on camera for money. I just wonder what changed, was it Howard's divorce that caused him to no longer have the moral qualms, or did he just stop caring? I'm not sure, just thinking out loud.
Also, the LAST thing Artie needs is to hook up with a stripper/porn star. I love the Baby Gorilla too much to ever want to see him like that (at least Artie had the sense to stab himself somewhere you can cover up with a shirt).
