Sal claimed he talked about Howard at great length with his assistant, Laura, while they were at Ronnie’s block party. In the clip, Howard told Sal he didn’t want him speaking to Laura about him, and also insisted he needed “mental help.” Howard added he didn’t blame Sal entirely for the incident, adding he didn’t like that Laura divulged information about him the way she supposedly did. When the clip was done, Jon noted he “loved how blatantly oblivious” Sal was when it came to Howard, and Gary told Sal there were certain topics Howard didn’t want to discuss on the air. However, Sal responded all he wanted to do was talk about someone he “admired,” so he didn’t see how being “inquisitive” about Howard’s past was problematic. Sal next said “the wages” of being Howard Stern was not having any secrets, which caused everyone in the studio to laugh.
