Ricky was criticized for some of the jokes he made about the celebrities attending the Golden Globes last year. Everyone thought he wouldn't be invited back, but Ricky proved them wrong.
"I don't know what I did wrong, really. What did I say that was untrue? I made a joke suggesting that Charlie Sheen might like a night out," Ricky explained to Matt on Today. "I said that Robert Downey Jr. spent some time in clinics. And he did. I'm not judging him by that; it's a joke."
