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 the fake.
1. Denzel Washington tipped a Saks 5th Avenue salesman by getting him an agent.
2. Britney Spears almost got kicked out of the Four Seasons Hotel for smoking in their restaurant.
3. Jessica Alba's boyfriend is already buying baby-safe houseplants.
4. Producers of Jon Cusack's new film didn't tell Marisa Tomei that her cameo had been cut from the movie until she was on her way to the premiere.
Howard, Robin, and Fred couldn't believe that Marisa Tomei wouldn't know that her cameo had been cut. Artie and Greg Fitzsimmons thought there was no way Jessica Alba's boyfriend was so considerate. Mike then announced that Artie (and Greg) was correct for the second week in a row.
