This wasn't Garber's first time discussing Andreesen, but it is the first time the public took notice. In an April 2012 interview with Canadian magazine Forever Young Information
, Garber said his relationship with Andreesen was one of his proudest achievements.
"My companion Rainer Andreesen and I have been together almost 13 years in Greenwich Village. We both love New York," Garber said.

, which airs Mondays at 10/9c on NBC.
