Emboldened by the staff's enthusiasm for Ralph-exposure (and prompted to do so by Richard), Howard decided to comment further on the now-infamous (and still yet unspecified) faux pas at his New Year's Eve party: "It's very simple. I didn't want a make a joke of it...I knew he was going to be alone so I invited him out to my house...sometimes Ralph can come out and be embarrassing."
Howard said Ralph later claimed to have blacked out, but "I was serving the alcohol. He didn't drink anymore than I did."
Howard still refused to be specific, but explained: "He gets very physical. He starts saying very insulting things to several of the guests."
Howard refused to be specific, as the things were very hurtful: "You know Rob [Zombie] and you know Jimmy [Kimmel]."
Richard speculated that Ralph had disparaged Rob's films, so Howard nodded ("Ok...[but] Rob's a great guy and lets things roll off his back.") and concluded: "He's not coming to my house anymore. I'm done with the invites."
