Veteran comedian/screenwriter Carol Leifer stopped by to promote her new book, "When You Lie about Your Age, the Terrorists Win," and Howard told her: "You're like one of the most successful people in show business but nobody knows about it."
Howard then asked why she "all of a sudden became a lesbian," so Carol explained she'd been with tons of guys (including Jerry Seinfeld and Paul Reiser) before meeting the love of her life: "I found true love with my partner...when I turned 40, I really wanted to have an affair with a woman. It became like an obsession."
Carol told the crew she'd previously been with a woman during a threesome with a former boyfriend: "It was totally not awkward - and the Quaaludes helped...there was a lot of sucking and f'ing going on." The encounter did not, however, help her realize she was gay: "I had very good sex and relationships with guys after that point." Then one day she met her current partner and had a mutual friend set up a golf date: "I said, 'Look, what would it hurt if we just made out?'"
No Hollywood Lesbian Cabal
Carol said her partner had been "full lesbian since college," attracted a lot of attention when they go out and was very sexually aggressive: "She's as doggy as any guy I've been with." The pair have been together for 13 years and are now raising an adopted son. Howard asked if there was a "little club" of famous gay women, and Carol laughed it off, explaining that she'd worked with and befriended Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi - but was unaware of any sinister lesbian cabal in Hollywood.
