The Mike Walker Gossip Game: August 10, 2009

As he does every Thursday, Howard got Mike Walker from The National Enquirer on the line to play 'The Gossip Game,' in which Mike reads four gossip items – three (allegedly) true, one false – and the crew has to pick out the fake.

This week's stories:

1. Charlize Theron owns an ungodly amount of shoes.

2. Howie Mandel refused to buy his wife a pair of $1200 pair of shoes.

3. A crazed female fan approached – and then kissed – Susan Boyle on the street.

4. Ashley Simpson Wentz believes Pete Wentz married her because she shares a birthday with his bulldog.

Robin picked the Charlize Theron story and Fred and Howard couldn't believe Howie Mandel was so cheap after hearing about the house he built for himself behind his house. Mean while, Benjy thought the fake story was that Howard would let him play the game in Artie's absence (Howard agreed and wouldn't let him give another answer). Mike then said the phony item was about Ashley Simpson.
