Howie Mandel's Weird Anti-Germ Habits on 'Marriage Ref' (VIDEO)

Howie Mandel's Anti-Germ Habits on 'Marriage Ref'Being the germaphobe that he is, Howie Mandel got unnerved when Bette Midler touched him during their appearance on 'The Marriage Ref' (Thu., 10PM ET on NBC). But that was only the beginning of myriad disturbing insights into the lifestyle he and his wife maintain under his anti-germ regime.

"When do you throw out your socks?" asked host Tom Papa. Mandel replied, "I'll be honest with you, I'll wear them [only] once or twice."

He continued, "I wash my money ... I put all the money in the pockets, and then [my wife] puts the pants into the laundry, and then she gives me the money that's been laundered."

Who knew the term "money laundering" could actually be taken literally?

I thought the way Bette Midler acted was extrememly disrepectful. Howie Mandel wasn't acting rude toward her or making snide comments, and he's come out to say one of his fears is people touching him (germs). Regardless of whether you think it's legitimate or not, his feelings as a person should be respected. I'm a Bette Midler fan but I thought she acted insensitive. And I feel Howie Mandel is a good guy who should have been shown more respect.

A legitimate illness? Give me a break. Oh I forgot, everything nowadys is considered an illness. If your son doesn't focus in school, its called ADD so shove some Ritilin down his throat. If your kid is shy or socially awkward, its now called autism so lets give him Adderall. I'm feeling depressed today, I must have a disease so give me some Prozac. Oh and lets not forget about Tiger Woods. He's not a sleazebag, he is a sexaholic. What a joke. It's pathetic that people like you buy into this nonsense and medicate yourself and your kids. You are in essence a legal drug dealer and you should be ashamed to give your kids these mind numbing drugs just because its easier for you as a parent. The pharmeceutical companies have you right where they want you.

Ooo...let's make fun of a legitimate illness. That's always good for a laugh. Who's our next target - Marc Summers and his OCD?
