Howard on Wednesday played a clip from the Wrap Up Show of the staff trying to figure out his friendship with Ralph Cirella and decided to settle the debate. “I’ve never really hung out with Ralph all that much … I see Ralph socially once—possibly twice—a month,” he revealed. “There was a time when I was single and there was this posse when we would go out and Ralph was a part of that. I still consider Ralph the guy I like to hang out with most, but I don’t really hang out with him a lot.”

He also added that the relationship’s shift was mostly Ralph’s fault. “I started inviting Ralph to stay and every time there was a problem,” Howard explained. “You need a team of people to entertain Ralph … there’s a lot of neediness.”
