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. When Sean Penn shocked his ex-wife, Robin Wright Penn, by requesting a divorce, she promptly threw her wedding ring at his head.
2. Hugh Grant tipped a NYC bathroom attendant with a $100 bill.
3. Martin Sheen ordered Charlie Sheen's new wife to make peace with Denise Richards so both sets of children can have a relationship.
4. Joy Behar tried to get her new husband to wear a dead man's old suits.
Howard and Fred went with the Sean Penn story. Robin and Artie picked the Joy Behar story. Mike then announced that Robin and Artie were right - the item was a recycled from an incident in his personal life.
