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 guess the fake.
Mike then read this week's stories:
- Paula Abdul accidentally flushed her cellphone down a toilet.
- Barbara Walters avoids speaking in public so she's not recognized.
- Marky Mark is selling his home with an unusual perk: access to neighbor Jon Voigt's property.
- Hilary Duff dropped an "L" from her name for luck.
Howard and Artie thought the Barbara Walters item sounded crazy. Robin and Fred doubted that Marky Mark could really sell access to someone else's property. Mike then announced that no one was right - Hilary Duff has always only had one "L" in her name.
