In this video Shuli have to play the villain. Howard can be "innocent". At the same time Howard have prepped Shuli what he should say to Cabbie.
30 minutes from Shuli "you betrayed Howard. You made a porn in his studio". Shuli is much more "angry" about the incident then Howard.
Howard loves to live life like this. Having Tim Sabean being the villain to the staff. "sorry. No budget. Sorry. No air time".
Same with Gary. He is the villain for all guests and inner circle staff.
The funniest stuff is when Howard have callers call in about stuff that Howard is angry about. When Beth is hugging some stranger, someone always have to call in angry for Howard. Howard can play innocent and "defend" Beth.
BTW in the video above: Shuli is trash talking the whole time. When Cabbie leaves, Shuli is such a coward that he hides behind 2 bodyguards.
Howard cant be honest about anything in his life. He is just a puppeteer.
