Great partnerships, like great marriages, have a way of lifting both partners to heights they couldn’t possibly achieve on their own. By smoothing out rougher edges and playing to each other’s strengths, the pairs can truly maximize their skill sets. For all his natural talent, Howard Stern is only on the top of his game when longtime sidekick Robin Quivers is by his side, and thanks to wonderful news from the doctor, it seems she’ll be there for years to come.
According to TMZ, Quivers appeared on The Howard Stern Show this morning to talk about what’s been going on in her life. For the past year, she’s been doing the show from home because doctors discovered a grapefruit sized tumor inside her pelvis. She quickly underwent an eight hour surgery to have it removed and has been getting chemotherapy ever since. Like the no-nonsense woman she is, Quivers apparently gave the cancer hell, and recently, she got the thumbs up from her doctors that every trace of the disease is gone. Obviously, there will be plenty of check-ups over the next few years to make sure it doesn’t return, but for the time being, it’s all smiles from both Robin and Howard, who apparently was by her side every step of the way.
Here’s what Stern had to say about all the medical procedures…
"Robin means more to me than anything. Seeing her go through this just fucking tore me up."
Over the years, Stern has gotten an almost uncountable number of celebrities to open up about pretty much every imaginable issue. Observers have long pointed to his non-judgmental demeanor and intelligence to explain why it happens over and over again, but in many ways, Quivers has always been his secret weapon. She’s aggressively good-natured and makes the program feel so warm. More often than not, guests feel like she’s really rooting for them and on their side, and that really adds to the comfort level too.
Pop Blend’s sincerest congratulations go out to Quivers. Here’s to hoping she enjoys the hell out of the rest of her very long life.
