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 to guess which is the fake. Mike then read this week's stories:
1. Shia Lebeouf caused a ruckus at the National Air & Space Museum for smoking in the boys room.
2. Don King was kicked off a flight to Africa for fighting with his travel companions.
3. Nicole Kidman slathers herself in peanut oil to prevent having post-pregnancy stretch marks.
4. Mickey Rourke pre-chews his chihuahua's food before spitting it into the dog's mouth.
Howard, Robin and Fred all thought the Don King story was the fake. Mike told them they were all wrong – the Nicole Kidman story is the red herring.
