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. Charlize Theron stayed at a green resort that provides leaves instead of toilet paper.
  2. Sylvester Stallone spent only $3,000 on holiday gifts because he lost a fortune to Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme.
  3. Kim Kardashian's diva behavior made for several scenes at a luxury hotel.
  4. "Dancing with Stars" co-stars Karina and Maxine joined a couple of fans' table after learning some restaurant was fully booked.

Howard didn't think Stallone invested like Palm Beach's elite. Robin and Artie thought the Kim Kardashian item was too long and involved. Fred picked the Charlize Theron story. Mike then announced that he'd fooled everyone for the third week in a row - the "Dancing with the Stars" item was the fake.
