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. Jennifer Aniston demanded her own stylist on the set of "30 Rock."
2. Daniel Baldwin is off the wagon and in crazy amounts of debt due to his coke habit.
3. Blake Lively got sick after drinking from a mountain stream.
4. Sally Field discovered that her noisy neighbors were partying naked. Howard said didn't want the Daniel Baldwin story to be true, Robin thought the Sally Field story's copy was too pun-happy, and both Artie and Fred thought the Blake Lively story was just an excuse to talk about one of the hot new "Gossip Girl" stars. Mike then announced (after first thinking no one had picked the third story) that Artie and Fred were right.
