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 of which are (allegedly) true, one is definitely false – and the crew has to guess which is the fake. Mike then read this week's stories:
1. Jennifer Aniston wants John Mayer to father her child.
2. A bird shat on Eva Longoria's hair, so she dyed her hair blonde.
3. Simon Cowell is refusing to return wedding presents that were accidentally sent to him – and not, as intended, "American Idol" executive producer Simon Fuller.
4. Denzel Washington gave the table he'd reserved at a fancy restaurant to Heidi Klum and Seal.
Howard thought the Simon Cowell story was too ridiculous, but Robin, Artie and Fred all thought the Aniston/Mayer item was too convoluted. Mike then reported that no one was right this week: the Eva Longoria item is the fake.
