After months of fantasizing about her, Howard welcomed Kelly Monaco onto the show. Howard commented that he couldn't believe Kelly, 29, had been with her current boyfriend since she was 15, and that he is the only guy with whom she has ever had sex. Howard figured that because Kelly had been in Playboy that she had a wild side, but she claimed she didn't fit that stereotype. She added that when they first started seeing each other, her boyfriend had cheated on her. However, Kelly said she has remained faithful to him during their entire relationship. She also stressed that this was early in their 14 year relationship and that he has been faithful to her for a long time.
Robin wondered what made her boyfriend so special that Kelly would devote her life to him. She responded that he isn't rich and he isn't super hot, but he is her backbone and best friend. Kelly also revealed that he is Puerto Rican, which didn't sit too well with her family members when they found out. Further, her boyfriend acts as her manager, although she said she doesn't actually pay him a weekly paycheck. She noted, though, that everything that she has belongs to him, and vice versa. In addition to not having multiple sex partners, Kelly told Howard that she doesn't drink or do drugs. She admitted that she went through a phase of experimentation when she was 11, but that she knew from the outset that kind of life wasn't for her.
She Has the Moves
Kelly had mega-success as a participant in ABC's "Dancing with the Stars," which aired during the summer. She recalled that when she was offered the role she accepted with some hesitation because the premise sounded pretty lame. However, the show was such a smash that she is now getting offers for other projects that she is convinced wouldn't have surfaced had she not been involved. Howard mentioned that he loved the way the writers on "General Hospital," a soap opera in which Kelly also stars, worked her dancing into a show last month. Kelly commented that she begged them not to include it, but they did anyway. John O'Hurley, an actor best known for his role as J. Peterman on "Seinfeld" and who also was on "Dancing with the Stars," recently challenged Kelly to a "dance off," which she accepted. Howard asked her how much money she received for the dance off, although she didn't really answer, her silence when asked if it was a million dollars was enough. The program will air September 20 on ABC.
The Hair Down There
Howard mentioned to Kelly that yesterday he was looking at naked pictures of her, and that he didn't like the amount of hair she had on her nether regions. Kelly explained that when she took those pictures she was young and inexperienced in front of the camera.
She added that she now trims below the belt.
Returning the Favor of His Pleasure
Richard told Kelly that while Sal was sleeping on his futon, he went into the bathroom and pleasured himself to her "Maxim" pictures.
As if that wasn't a big enough compliment, Richard added that he never masturbates to such tame material. To express his gratitude to Kelly for providing him with hours of self-pleasure, Richard pulled down his pants to show her his private parts. Because Richard completely shaves his pubic hair, Kelly commented that he looked like he was 3 years old. When Kelly told him that such a practice was really gay, Richard claimed that he didn't think women liked hair down there.
Howard pointed out that although that notion may be true to an extent, women still like to know they're with men. Kelly, who commented several times how disturbing it was seeing Richard naked, agreed with Howard. While Richard was naked, Howard remarked that it used to be Benjy who always jumped at the chance to get naked but that Richard seems to have taken over that role on the show.
To prove he was up for the challenge, Benjy jumped up and dropped his pants. This brought protests from Artie who was having enough trouble with Benjy's breakfast this morning, which consisted of a can of burrito filling, to have to deal with his nudity.
Howard had Kelly's dance partner from the show, Alec, come in. Alec swore that even though Kelly is hot, he never got aroused during their dancing scenes. He explained that he has been dancing since he was 5, so he knows how to handle himself in such situations. Alec told Howard that he was born in Russia, and that ballroom dancing is extremely popular there. Howard asked him if guys ever hit on him when he was younger, but Alec said they didn't. Kelly informed Howard that Alec's girlfriend is hotter than she is, but since Kelly is not into girls at all, they have never done anything sexual.
