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, one false - and the crew has pick the fake. Mike then read this week's stories:
1. Jerry Seinfeld had a brain scan to prove he was just as in love with his wife as they day they met, but his wife refused to return the favor.
2. Rosie O'Donnell refused to take ABC executives' input on her recent attempt to re-launch her daytime talk show.
3. Michael Jackson is shopping for $30 million homes in LA - despite being broke.
4. Paula Abdul removed a shrine to her suicidal stalker from her front lawn.
Howard couldn't believe that Michael Jackson had enough money to shop for eight-figure homes. Robin thought the Paula Abdul item was fishy. Both Artie and Fred agreed that Seinfeld was too germaphobic to use an MRI machine or unnecessarily enter a health facility. Mike then announced that Fred and Artie were right yet again.
