Lena said she was understanding of Howard's initial comments about her, since she's a long-time listener of his. "I'm a big fan of your particular brand of free speech," she said. Her only issue was with charges that she's overweight.

"I'm not super thin, but I'm thin for, like, Detroit," Lena joked. She told Howard that his overture was unnecessary and that she'll always be a fan. "I appreciate it and I appreciate your effort to rectify [this], but whether you'd done that or not, I'd have remained a [Howard Stern] enthusiast."
