Ralph came by the studio today with Howard's costume for his iNDEMAND show opener he's taping tomorrow. He's just back from staying with Sam Simon in California for a month and he'll be going to Germany (again, with Sam) on Saturday. Howard thought that Ralph was turning in Kato Kalin.
Howard wondered if Sam ever had the talk with Ralph asking him to leave because he was there for a month. Ralph said he didn't and defended himself by saying he was a very good houseguest. Ralph said he paid for his own food and gassed up the cars (a Bentley or a Mercedes) when he would use them, but otherwise Sam paid for everything. Howard joked that Sam stole his girlfriend away from him. Ralph said that Sam has the perfect set up, and Artie agreed. Sam's house is 2 blocks from the beach, it's about 75 degrees everyday, he lives in the mountains so there's a little bit of a breeze, and he's got a big screening room. Ralph said he was like a cat holding on for dear life; they had to drag him out of there. Gary reported that a mutual friend saw Ralph and Sam going to the gym together and said it was disturbing how similarly they were dressed. Everybody defended Sam by saying he was a great guy and was very generous.
