Howard had an interesting question for Fred this morning: who are his 5 favorite staff members?
Fred gladly answered. Here's his list:
#1 - Howard Stern (smart move Fred)
#2 - Robin Quivers
(After Robin, Fred says there's a STEEP drop off)
#3 - Gary Dell'abate
#4 - Jon Hein
#5 - Ronnie Mund
The fireworks started when Howard asked where Benjy would place on the list of staffers, and Fred said Benjy is so low that he'd actually have to hire more staffers to put Benjy on the list.
When pressed as to why he had such hard feelings about Benjy he revealed that Benjy was a dick to a friend of his (later revealed to be Robin Quivers) when he called her a bitch last week.
Benjy flipped his bald lid and started squealing, demanding that Fred explain what he meant and calling him a "f*cking asshole."
Fred just ignored him.
Later Benjy explains that his explosive outbursts are due to the fact that he doesn't get the freedom to talk that everyone else in the studio gets, so he gets frustrated to the point of explosion.
