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 the fake. Mike then read this week's stories:
1. Jake Gyllenhaal cried after Reese Witherspoon told him she wouldn't be bringing her children with her when she visits the set of his latest movie.
2. Katy Perry got kicked out of cab for singing along to her own song.
3. Tori Spelling left the new "90210" because Jennie Garth and Shannon Doherty are being paid more.
4. Cher recently rode a shuttle bus for the first time and enjoyed it.
Howard, Robin and Artie couldn't believe that Cher would ever ride a shuttle bus. George and Fred thought the Katy Perry item was the fake. Mike then announced that George's week was a success – he and Fred were correct.
