Mike Walker's Gossip Game

Howard got Mike Walker from 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. Mike then read this week's stories:

1. Tina Fey's purse was stolen when she left her seat to accept her Emmy onstage.

2. Patrick Dempsey uses a $350 face cream.

3. Jeremy Piven became upset when he wasn't allowed to smoke a cigar indoors.

4. Lisa Rinna's boobs sweat so much during the Emmy red carpet pre-show that her dress became streaked with fake tanning cream.

Howard, Robin and Artie thought the Jeremy Piven item was too over-the-top, even for the him. Fred thought the Lisa Rinna item was malicious. Mike then announced that no one was right – and Patrick Dempsey is no fairy.
