Hooknose Mike called in and asked Fran if she still had money from “The Nanny,” which she said she did because she owned part of the program. Hooknose also told Fran he’d like to see her in Playboy, but she told him she wouldn’t do that because she might want to pursue a political career as a congresswoman or senator in the future. Upon hearing this, Howard held an impromptu press conference with Fran, asking what she thought about capital punishment. Fran replied she used to support it, but ever since she starred in a play called “Exonerated,” which, she explained, was about a man on death row who had been wrongfully convicted, she changed her stance.
