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.
This week's stories:
- Jennifer Aniston has turned down a $4 million offer from Playboy.
- Dustin Hoffman was super nice to a waiter who accidentally spilled food on him.
- Britney Spears had a closed LA boutique opened so she could buy a pair of panties, as she seemed to have forgotten to put some on that day.
- Kate Winslet writes romance novels in her spare time.
Howard and Robin thought the Britney Spears item was a recycled story, Artie didn't believe that Mike knew (as he claimed) Dustin Hoffman and Fred picked the Kate Winslet item "for the block." Mike then announced that Fred had broken the show's three week-long losing streak - the Kate Winslet item was recycled from a story about Jackee.
