Howard got Mike Walker of The National Enquirer on the line, as he does every Thursday, to play "The Gossip Game," in which Mike reads four gossip items – three (allegedly) true, and one false – and the crew has to guess which is the fake. Mike then read this week's stories:
1. Nicole Richie loves how her pregnancy has given her bigger boobs.
2. Madonna and Angelina Jolie cried to each other over the phone about their adoption controversies.
3. Vince Vaughn went over to quiet a party next door to his home and ended up joining in.
4. Jennifer Aniston stormed off after overhearing a crew member on the set of her new movie discussing Angelina Jolie's sexy performance in Beowulf.
Howard and Fred thought the Jennifer Aniston story was too convoluted, Robin thought that Madonna and Angelina could never be friends, and Artie theorized that since the Nicole Richie story wasn't "gossip-related" to the others, it was the fake. Mike then revealed that Artie's theory was correct.
