Howard started off the show playing a clip of Jillian Barbarie telling one of her co-hosts that Robin was dating a 25-year-old guy. Robin denied the story: "I did not tell her I was dating a 25 year-old, I said I had dated a 25-year-old...there might've been a lot of noise in the restaurant and she messed things up."
Robin explained that she stopped dating the guy in question before the holidays: "I said it would be a nice thing to go out and have a 25-year-old on my arm." Howard doubted Robin's claim, saying he remembered her saying she wanted to bed a young guy, and Robin scoffed, telling Gary to pull the old discussion from the archives. [Later, the clips exonerated her.]
Howard then tried a different tack, asking what issues split them up, but Robin would only cite one - her boytoy was upset by the negative statements Gregg Karmel made about him on HowardTV.
