Howard Stern. Him and [his wife] Beth, they reached out to me,” Harper, 51, told host Cohen, 48, and fellow guest Rachel Dratch. “Then Howard sent me a video of naked men doing yoga. Beth was like, ‘You’re gonna give him another heart attack!’ I love him.”

“When I heard that you had cardiac arrest I didn’t know that meant that you technically died,” Cohen said on Tuesday night. “I technically died,” Harper replied. “There was a piece of paper from the doctor that said, ‘Cause of death: cardiac arrest.’ That’s a wake up call!”

Earlier this month, Harper said on the Today show that he had a “6 percent survival rate” and that he didn’t take prior warning signs seriously enough.

“I fainted one time in the gym, I started having these dizzy spells and I just kind of overlooked them,” he recalled to Cohen. “[I] just adapted, which was just the dumbest [thing to do]. I kicked myself over and over again about that.”
