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 pick the fake.
This week's stories:
1. Tina Fey threatened to fire Alec Baldwin from "30 Rock" after he began telling the show's guest directors that he "didn't take direction."
2. Jamie Foxx traded a homeless woman a $100 bill for some change for a parking meter.
3. Mickey Rourke wanted to be on "Dancing with the Stars" but balked when they sent over some "fruity wardrobe requirements."
4. Jenny McCarthy now thinks she's a big enough star to stop interviews she feels are unfavorable.
Howard went with the Mickey Rourke item, Robin with Jenny McCarthy and Fred picked Jamie Foxx. Mike then reported that Fred was right yet again.
