Hobnobbing with the Clooneys, Kimmels and Jennifer Aniston

When he was feeling better, Howard joined Jimmy Kimmel and his fiancee, Molly, in Mexico, and spirits were high. The gang toasted both the new year and Jimmy's new 11:30pm timeslot on ABC, which starts next week.

Howard said he and Beth stayed at a resort, but Jimmy (and George Clooney) crashed at Jennifer Aniston's place. "I hobnobbed with everybody. We had a nice time."
