Referencing Nick Cannon's appearance on the June 30 Wrap Up Show, Howard clarified his position on the "America's Got Talent" host.
"He seems to think I hate him and I don't," Howard said. "I watch his show every week."
Howard explained he means no offense to Nick when he jokes about Nick's wife, Mariah Carey. "How could I not goof on his wife? For a while, she was doing some really wacky shit," he said.
Howard wondered if Nick was tiring of Mariah's antics as well since it seems he'd rather be working than be home with her. "You don't take that many jobs if you're happy," Howard said with a laugh. As such, Howard extended his support to Nick: "He seems like a lovely guy."
