Howard announced he went to the gym yesterday, and Robin said she did the same thing, primarily because she's begun training for the New York Marathon in November. After Robin noted she couldn't yet run outside due to the cold weather, Howard reported recently seeing a picture of Bubba the Love Sponge in a fitness magazine, showcasing how much weight he'd lost over the last few years.
Howard said Bubba sent him "a nice picture" from his wedding of him and Beth kissing. Howard added that, although Beth loved the shot, he wasn't sure how he felt about it because of how good she looked in the photograph compared to what he thought he looked like.
This led Howard to acknowledge he informed Beth last night that Sal had been using jokes about her in his standup act, and that she replied by wishing Sal would "leave her alone."
Following clips from yesterday's "Wrap Up Show," of Sal apologizing for assuring Beth to her face that he'd stopped using the jokes only to continue using them, Howard pointed out he thought Sal was "desperate," and again noted he'd decided not to verbally attack his wife in retaliation.
In another "Wrap Up Show" segment, Gary insisted to a caller that he wouldn't have a problem if his (theoretical) daughter dated a black man, and added that, for reasons he couldn't reveal, knew Howard wouldn't have an issue if one of his daughters did the same thing.
Howard also said that, when he approached Gary to ask how he became such an expert on his life, Gary responded he came to that conclusion because Howard once dated a black woman.
