Howard noted that Mike Walker from the National Enquirer was on the line, as he is every Thursday, to play "The Gossip Game," in which he reads four gossip items – three of which are (allegedly) true, and one false – and the crew has to guess which is the fake. Mike then read this week's stories:
1. Eric Dane wrecked his motorcycle when he tried to avoid a coyote.
2. Petra Nemcova triple kiss-greeting is slowing down the production of her reality show.
3. Woody Harrellson yelled at Luke and Owen Wilson when he lost a croquet match.
4. Fergie threw away the signed tennis ball Maria Sharapova gave her boyfriend, Josh Duhamel.Howard and Artie picked item 3 as the fake. Robin picked 4. Fred went with 1, because he thought he had heard a similar story about another person recently. Mike then revealed that Fred suspicions were right; the first item was indeed a recycled item about "House's" Hugh Laurie.
