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, one false - and the crew has pick the fake. Mike then read this week's stories:
1. Candy Spelling can't even remember her granddaughter's name.
2. Jerry Seinfeld threw up and collapsed after a rigorous workout with Madonna.
3. "American Idol" producers refused Ryan Seacrest's request for a helicopter to shuttle him from his E! shoots to the show's set.
4. Scarlett Johansson refuses to buy a house with a swimming pool because she almost drowned in a bathtub as a toddler.
Howard couldn't believe that Ryan Seacrest had the balls to request a helicopter. Robin thought the Seinfeld story was fishy. Artie and Fred thought the Scarlett Johansson story was false, because she's been in pools in her movies - and the item seemed too similar to a well-known rumor about Scarlett's mentor, Woody Allen. Mike then announced that Artie and Fred were totally right.
