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. Katherine Hiegl paid a fisherman to throw a yellowfin tuna back in the water.
2. Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey are considering a new Sonny-and-Cher-style post-divorce television show.
3. Leonardo DiCaprio paid a fellow gas station customer's bill.
4. Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow are investing in technology that can turn dirty diapers into diesel fuel.
Howard thought the Madonna story was ridiculous, and everyone else picked the Katherine Hiegl story as the fake. Mike then announced that Howard was right.
