Howard said he had a great birthday party on Saturday night. Jimmy said he was in town on Saturday but Howard didn't know so he didn't get invited.
Howard said Artie brought a bunch of girls with him to the party and one of them was annoying him while he was drinking. Howard said she would say ''What are you doing Howard, what would your mother say?'' as he was drinking. Stuttering John said she did the same thing to him.
After taking a break Howard spent some time talking to Jimmy Kimmel about how hated he is by the NFL commentators on FOX. Jimmy said that he gets phone calls from Executive Producers of the show telling him to lay off some of the other guys on the show because they really get upset about some of the stuff he says. While they were discussing that they got on the subject of the Howie Long and Teri Hatcher Radio Shack commercials and how strange they are. Howard said he could talk about those commercials for hours. They only spent a few minutes on them though. The guys were trying to figure out what the relationship is supposed to be in the commercials. One dopey listener called in and said that the two of them are married in real life but everyone in the studio told the guy he was retarded.
Howard eventually got back to his birthday party discussion. He said Gary ''pussied out'' and didn't show up. Gary said all week he said he wasn't going because he had other things to do.
Before the party on Saturday Howard went to the eye doctor and he was told he needs bi-focals now. Someone suggested that Howard get laser eye surgery instead but he's afraid of doing that. Jimmy Kimmel said he had it done and it's great. Howard said his eye doctor even said he wouldn't get the surgery done because it's still new technology.
Howard said he went out to dinner with a couple of his buddies and then went to this club Cream and drank all night. Stuttering John said comedian Dave Chappelle got thrown out of the club for something but he wouldn't say exactly what it was.
Howard said he ended up paying for the bar tab just like he thought he would. He said the total tab was $2500.
Jimmy Kimmel said that he was hanging out with some of his buddies Saturday night spying on a naked woman in another apartment building near his buddy's apartment. Jimmy said that Carson Daly from MTV was there hanging out checking the naked woman too.
Howard said he saw a great movie over the weekend. He got a screening copy of this movie ''In the Bedroom'' which stars Sissy Spacek and Marissa Tomei. He said it doesn't sound like it would be good but it was great. He said he didn't even want to give away any of the movie because it would ruin it for people if he did. Robin didn't want to hear anything about it because she wants to see it herself.
Ethan told Howard that he thought he could win the game by just being a nice guy the whole time. It worked. After talking to Ethan about the game he got into his personal life and asked him when he got laid for the first time. Ethan said he was 14. All of the guys sounded surprised by that revelation.
Howard got back to ''Survivor'' and how farmer Tom called Ethan a ''Jew Boy'' at one point in the game when they had a food challenge. Ethan said Tom had never even seen a Jewish person before so that was his first meeting with one.
Howard was saying how there weren't really any hot chicks on this season. He said a lot of the guys were good looking but the women weren't. Ethan said he never really thought about hooking up with any of the women while they were there. He said you never really think about that because everyone is dirty and tired all the time.
Howard asked Ethan if the women are already all over him since he won. Ethan said he's got a girlfriend right now so none of that is going on. Howard took some phone calls for Ethan before wrapping up the interview. There weren't really any decent questions for him though. Howard found out that Ethan was thinking of using his winnings to start an inner-city soccer league. Howard told him that the problem with inner-city kids is that they play sports all the time and they don't go to class. He said they don't need another sport to play. Howard wrapped up the interview and congratulated Ethan on his win. He also said that Ethan will be in the ''Survivor Reunion Special'' this Thursday on CBS. As Ethan was leaving Howard asked him where he was going next. He said he's going to be on ''Live with Regis and Kelli'' tomorrow so Howard told him to ask Regis about what happened with ''Who Wants to be a Millionaire'' because it might be canceled by ABC soon. Ethan also said he'll be on ''Late Show with David Letterman'' tonight.
After all of the guys said their stuff Howard had Jessica make a choice. Jessica made a very surprising choice when she picked 35 year old Pete. Jessica said it was his attitude that made her decision. She said he just didn't care about anything so she picked him. Go figure! Howard ended the segment shortly after she made her decision. He said we'll find out about their date in the near future.
After taking a break Howard came back and said that he tried to get Artie to hook up with Jessica. He told him to give her his number and tell her not to call him until after the weekend because he'll be off shooting a movie this week. Artie didn't want to do it so Gary did it for him. Gary said he gave her the number, told her not to call until after the weekend because he's shooting an Ivan Reitman movie. Gary said she actually thanked him for the number after that.
Howard talked about how Oprah Winfrey's TV show ratings have dropped lately and he's happy about that.
Jimmy Kimmel spent a couple of minutes talking about his penis operation. Last week he had to have his urethra enlarged because it had closed up on it's own. He said he went to the doctor one day and while the doctor was holding it in his hand he says ''Wow! I've never seen one that small.'' He wasn't referring to his penis, just the urethra. Jimmy said they had to cut it open and stitch it up with about 4 stitches. He said before this operation they performed another one where they shoved a ''metal chopstick'' in there and then put a larger one in to try and enlarge it. You could hear all of the guys in the studio cringing while Jimmy was describing the operations.
Howard was annoyed first thing this morning after he found out that Larry King just signed a deal with CNN that will pay him about $14 million a year. Howard said that Larry gets lower ratings than he does on cable and he doesn't understand why he gets paid so much. Howard and the guys spent a few minutes talking about Larry and goofing on him.
Jimmy Kimmel also brought up Bill Cosby whose ass Larry has kissed on his show. Jimmy said he knows that the people of Las Vegas don't like Bill, they despise him. The guys then spent a few minutes goofing on Cosby.
Howard and Robin wondered how Jimmy got away from his ''The Man Show'' co-star Adam Carolla this week. Jimmy said that Adam is shooting an episode of ''Son of the Beach'' this week out in L.A. Howard said that Adam is going to be in the first 1 hour episode of ''Son of the Beach'' which just started shooting it's new season.
Robin brought up last night's ''Fear Factor'' which was great according to Howard. He said the contestants must be idiots because of the things they get into. One woman was thrown off a bull and slammed into the ground so hard she could barely breath after it. Then the contestants had to eat cow brains and one woman kept vomiting it up and re-swallowing it. Howard said he can't wait for the episode where the contestants have to walk down a fashion runway while they're nude.
Howard was back on the subject of Larry King and ended up talking about his buddy Dominic Barbara who wants to get married out in Las Vegas when Howard is doing his show out there. He also wants Howard to be his best man in the wedding. Howard said he used to think Dominic did some strange things but now he thinks he's insane.
Howard got an e-mail from someone who said Jimmy was on Home and Garden TV redesigning his kitchen. Jimmy told Howard that it was his wife's idea and he wanted nothing to do with it but at the last minute the TV show demanded that he appear. He said he kept quiet through most of the show but he made some jokes that were cut out in the final edit. Howard doesn't get that whole thing where people show their homes on TV. Robin's apartment was once shown in Architectural Digest which still surprises Howard to this day.
Howard announced that anyone who has a really sad life story can go to GoldenPalace.com and enter to win the chance to go to Las Vegas to appear on the show to place the $100,000 bet and possibly win that much money.
Nancy is a big fan of this song parody Howard plays on the show once in a while called ''Strangers on my Flight'' so Howard played it for her today. She asked Howard who sings it but he wouldn't say. He just said it's someone who does song parodies for them.
Howard spoke to Dana about her husband's accident and whether or not Chris would let Howard bang her. Dana told Howard that she listens to his show every day and she's a fan. She said they don't have E! out where they live so she doesn't watch the TV show.
Howard told Dana that she thinks that the doctors who saved Christopher are ''ghouls.'' Jimmy Kimmel joked that she should kill Chris herself. Yesterday Howard was discussing an article that he read about how most guys will leave their wives if they get cancer. He asked Dana if she thinks Chris would have left her if she was the one who had a life threatening disease. Dana said she hopes he wouldn't. She told Howard she's happy to have Chris around but she told him it was up to him if he wanted to stick around. She said she took care of him for the first year or so after his accident but she wasn't able to keep doing that so they have a staff of people to take care of him now.
Howard asked Dana if they killed the horse that threw Chris off. Dana said the horse is still alive and well and it actually got them a million bucks. Dana said a woman donated $1 million to them because they kept the horse alive.
Howard asked if it would be the lowest thing to try and seduce her. He asked Dana if Chris told her it was okay, would she have sex with him. She said if Chris wanted that she'd do it. She doesn't think that's what he wants though. She claims that they still have sex. She said that Chris can still get an erection at ''odd times'' but they can still get it on. At one point Jimmy just blurted out ''So what do you hop on top?''
Howard spent a few minutes talking to Dana about the upcoming hockey game and some of the celebrities that will be playing. They include people like Matthew Modine, Susan Sarandon, Chris Jericho, Rick Moranis, Stephen Baldwin and of course Gary Dell'Abate. Last year Dana sang the National Anthem and Gary ran into her later in the evening. He asked her what she does for the charity foundation that they were playing for... He had no clue that it was Christopher Reeve's wife so he sort of made a fool out of himself. She'll be singing again this year.
After Dana left Howard and Jimmy talked about how hot she was. Jimmy said he thinks she came in looking for sex because of what she was wearing. They said she's an amazing woman. A paralyzed phone caller agreed. He told Howard he met her and she was really nice. The caller said that he can still get it up himself but he doesn't feel anything so he can't complete the act.
Howard had the latest issue of ''Playboy'' which features Michelle Pfeiffer's sister Deedee nude. He said he can't figure out why he needs to see her naked. He wondered out loud if it's because she's Michelle's sister and she looks sort of like her or what. Jimmy said it's probably because it's as close as you can get to seeing Michelle nude and that's why there's a fascination with it.
A phone caller asked Howard how many chicks he dated from the time he got separated from his wife until he met his girlfriend. Howard estimated that it was around 12 women. Robin and the other guys wanted to know how many of those Howard had sex with. Howard said it was probably 10 that he had intercourse with and maybe 2 that he just got oral from. Robin wanted exact numbers so she told him to go through them all in his head but he wouldn't do it.
Howard had tape of OJ Simpson talking about how he has respect for the terrorists and how Osama wouldn't be able to get a fair trial in the United States. He played the OJ tape and goofed on him for a few minutes. He also spoke about rapper Tupac and Eminem. At one point he said he can relate to Eminem's song ''Stan'' which is about a guy who wants to kill his wife. Jimmy thought that was really funny. In one of the tapes OJ does a promo for a radio station where he says ''Hi, this is OJ Simpson and I strongly encourage you to keep listening to this radio station because it rocks.'' Howard said that's going to be a new promo for his show.
Howard also had tape of Mariah Carey doing MTV's ''Cribs'' show. He played a bunch of clips from that show and pointed out how wacky she is. At one point in the show she says she has Marilyn Monroe's piano but she can't show it to the viewing audience for some reason. Howard said ''who knew Marilyn Monroe played piano?'' Howard also said he saw one part where she was showing her laundry room. She opened up her dryer and pulled her dog out of it! Howard played one clip that he found disturbing where she goes into her ''Butterfly room'' and looks at her ''fan books'' which help her get through times when she's not feeling very happy. Howard said the special ''Cribs'' drove him nuts.
Bobo the Extreme Fan called in and asked Howard if he watched ABC's new TV show ''The Chair'' last night. Howard did see it and said he found it pretty compelling. Even the host, John McEnroe, was good according to Howard. Bobo helped describe the show along with Howard but he didn't want to hear the whole show described all over again.
Howard said he also tried to give ''Who Wants to be a Millionaire'' another chance but when he tuned in on Monday night it was another horrible ''Celebrity'' version of the show. Howard said it was funny to see one of the stupid celebrities not able to answer a $500 question but the celebrity thing gets old quick.
Howard had tape of actor Robert Redford talking about how he used to rob stores in Beverly Hills when he was a kid. Howard doesn't seem to believe him and said he must be lying.
Yesterday Howard read that Larry King signed a contract with CNN where he'd be making $14 million a year. Today Howard read that it's more like $6.5 million which is better news but still too much for Larry.
Howard got to try some phone sex with a woman who called in. She told Howard she's a phone sex operator and she wanted to try it out with Howard. After he freaked out that she was calling in on a cell phone he gave it a try. Corrine, the phone sex woman, tried it out but Howard was doing all of the talking and she wasn't doing the job. Benjy ended up taking over and he did a better job as a woman than Corrine did. Benjy said he used to work for a chat line back in the late '80's and that's where he used to hear women doing the phone sex thing. That's where he picked up the technique.
Suge also spoke about a bunch of other rappers and how about 95% of them are gay and don't know it. He claimed that Dr. Dre claimed to be bi-sexual in a meeting he had with him one time. Howard said that we don't know if that's true or not though.
Suge spent a little time telling Howard about his time in prison. He said there are some things that you just don't talk about as far as fights and stuff like that. Howard moved on to talk to Suge about the time he hung Vanilla Ice out a window by his ankles. Howard wondered what inspired him to do something like that. Suge didn't really give an answer though. He got back to his prison stay and told Howard about how he was able to cook his own meals because he had enough money to buy his own stuff. He was also able to lose weight and clear his mind while he was there.
Howard wondered what Suge had against Snoop because he seems like such a nice guy. Suge told Howard that he was a nice kid and his record company reinvented him. He also disrespected Suge and that's why he doesn't get along with him now. Howard also asked Suge about who killed Tupac. Suge wasn't talking though. He told Howard that he'd be considered a snitch if he knew who killed him and told someone about it. So he's keeping his mouth shut.
Suge has a new record company called The Row and he says he won't be beating up people like he may have done in the past as the head of Death Row Records. He plugged a bunch of the groups he has under the new label and said they have a web site at TheRow.com.
Suge spent a short time talking about how J-Lo made P. Diddy look like a bitch when she dumped him and went off with a dancer. Suge said that would never happen to him because he knows how to please a woman in every way. He also told Howard he's seen this J-Lo sex tape. He said that compared to J-Lo's sex tape the Pamela Anderson/Tommy Lee tape is rated PG. Howard tried to find out if Suge has ever banged a famous chick but Suge wouldn't talk. Suge told Howard he respects women and wouldn't talk about it on the radio.
Howard took a few phone calls for Suge and wrapped up the interview a short time later.
Gary also came in to talk about a bunch of the other things that they'll be doing out in Vegas. They're having all kinds of contests and bets so it's going to be a full week of entertainment. They were planning to have a Hollywood Squares-type game out there but Gary said it wasn't looking good because they'd need to build a set and there wasn't any money to do that. Howard sounded a little upset about that and said that Tom (Chiusano) should use the Jackie money to pay for it.
Howard took some phone calls to kill some time after talking to Gary about the Las Vegas trip. Someone got Howard talking about how this one photographer is always following him around getting pictures of him with his girlfriend. He talked about how annoying it was and that prompted another caller to defend the photographers. The caller, Dan, kept bringing up old pictures he'd seen of Howard from years ago. Howard eventually got upset when he was talking about old pictures of his family. He eventually yelled at the caller saying that he knew who he was and he knew that he was just trying to upset him. He ended up hanging up on Dan and said he did what he was trying to do because he was upset by that time.
Howard mentioned that WWF wrestler Booker T would be on the show later today. He replayed the interview that Stuttering John did with him recently where he asked a bunch of general knowledge questions. Booker T didn't know a lot of the answers and he ended up talking about how he's not a fan of Howard's because he degrades women. After playing it Howard said that you could see the interview today should be interesting.
Howard spent a little time talking to Vinnie about other TV shows and networks. Vinnie, always the company man, was bad mouthing shows like ''Fear Factor'' and ''The Chair'' which are on other networks.
Howard said he's thinking of cutting his hair shorter again. He said he's not going to pull a ''Felicity'' and cut it all off but he might have Toni (his hair stylist) cut it a little shorter than it is now.
Howard also talked about how he recently realized just how many people he has working on the show now. He remembered the days when he worked in Detroit and didn't have anyone working with him and now he's got a bunch.
Howard said a bunch of people he knows are going to be out in Las Vegas for the week of shows he's doing out there. He doesn't understand how people can just pick up and leave at any time like that. He mentioned his buddy Dominic Barbara and how he's talking about bringing his girlfriend but Howard's girlfriend isn't going so it's become a problem for some reason. Dominic has apparently invited himself on the plane out to Vegas. Dominic ended up calling in to talk about these things. Everyone ended up in the conversation talking about Dominic and his strange behavior toward the show.
Howard came back from a break and said that Vinnie Favale was telling stories about Stuttering John. The two of them were both in the studio and went at each other for about 15 minutes telling stories about each other. Vinnie said that John always insults him and John said the same thing about Vinnie. The argued until Booker T came in.
Howard was afraid that Booker was going to come in and beat the crap out of him because of what John did so they ended up keeping him in Robin's booth. Robin came out and sat on the couch so Booker would be locked in the booth alone. Howard spoke to Booker for a few minutes about what John did and how he felt about it. Booker said that he had a migraine headache that night and John's questions were irritating him. Howard thought that when he was on ''The Weakest Link'' they insulted him too but Booker didn't feel that way. Howard told him that Vince McMahon should be trying to protect Booker T's image so they shouldn't have had him go on that show. Booker said he got paid to do that show and he didn't mind it.
Stuttering John ended up asking Booker ''How many sides are on a pentagon?'' a couple of times and Gary was ready to kill John himself. He told him before the interview that he wasn't to ask any questions but he did it anyway. He ended up apologizing to Booker T for asking the question.
Howard asked Booker if he wanted to come out of the booth to talk to him. Booker said he was comfortable in there so he stayed there. Booker moved on to talk about being in jail and what that was like. He said he's writing a book about his life but he doesn't have a release date at this time. He said he's just letting his career go where it's going right now.
Howard also asked Booker about who he's dating. Booker said he's dating a newcomer to the WWF by the name of Charmell Sullivan or something like that. Howard asked him if he'd ever date someone like Chyna who looks like a man to him. Booker said he'd date someone like that but his girlfriend is very feminine.
Howard asked Booker about some of the lawsuits he's got against him too. He's got one case against him for using the term ''spin-a-roonie.'' He mentioned the law suits he's got when Stuttering John interviewed him.
Booker says he'll retire from wrestling in 2 years so he can move on be a motivational speaker for kids. He's not planning on making wrestling a lifetime career.
After talking to Booker T for a little while Howard said he's never going to get into an argument with him again. Stuttering John said that he'd fight Booker T if he had to. Howard said he'd just curl up in a ball because he knows he'd get his ass beaten. John said that if Booker T punched him, he'd punch him right back. Booker told Howard that if John punched him he'd just keep beating his ass. He said he'd stop if the guy cried though.
Howard wrapped things up and took one phone call. The caller said his kid wanted to talk to Booker T but his wife had to take the kid to school. The guy said that Booker T really is all about the kids and he signs a lot of autographs wherever he goes. Howard then promoted the upcoming WWF Royal Rumble that's on Pay-Per-View this Sunday night. Booker T predicts that he'll win the whole Rumble thing Sunday night.
Vinnie Favale brought Howard a signed FHM from ''The Young and the Restless'' actress Sharon Case who is a fan of Howard's. He said the magazine is a keeper.
Vinnie Favale created a tribute to the Mariah Carey messages he downloads from her web site. He inserted clips in the Bruce Springsteen ''Jerry Maguire'' song. Howard played some of that and then played some new Mariah Carey messages that Vinnie brought in.
Howard spent a little while talking about the upcoming Las Vegas trip. He said that porn star Holly Landers will be marrying a listener. He heard that Holly asked Gary if it's going to be a ''real wedding.'' Of course it will be a real wedding. Holly said that she wanted some bridesmaids there so Gary told her that would be fine because he figured she'd bring some of her friends with her. Then he heard that she called up the Moonlight Bunny Ranch (whorehouse) and ordered up some women to be bridesmaids.
Howard will also be picking a new Miss Howard Stern out in Vegas. Gary said the details for entering that contest are on HowardStern.com. There will be a lot of other contests going on there too. Listeners will be able to win the chance to tickle model Amber Smith and date some other hot women.
Howard said Vinnie is on this Morpheus (MusicCity.com) thing that they've been talking about this week and he downloads porn. He had a video clip that he showed to Howard and he was way into seeing the guy in the thing and the anal shots too. Vinnie also thinks that the women in it are amateurs but Howard says there's no way they're amateur women. He said they've got to be porn actors. The guys pointed out the big phony implants that the women had and the big penis the guy had. Howard said there was way too much wiener in the video. He said they shouldn't show that much in porn movies.
Howard spent a little time talking to Dom about his career and working on TV shows before getting to Robin's news. Howard also plugged tonight's E! show which is the small penis contest from earlier this week.
Howard said his girlfriend was chafing after having to change bathing suits for some modeling gig she had so he used this stuff called Aquifer on her. He said his mother found this stuff and he uses it on his elbows in the winter. Apparently it's pretty good stuff.
Howard spent a little time talking to Artie about the women he's been dating lately. Howard said one woman he was dating was really annoying. She's the one who said ''What would your mother think?'' while he was drinking at his birthday party.
Howard brought up the death of ''Eight is Enough'' star Lani O'Grady which he read about in some article. He read some of the article which talked brought up her addictions and other problems she had.
Howard said he watched ''Friends'' last night and Chandler (Matthew Perry) is really disturbing looking to him. He said he's fat and he's got a double chin. Artie and Howard talked about how you'd think they'd stay in shape getting paid close to a million bucks an episode. Howard said Joey (Matt LeBlanc) has also gained a lot of weight. He said it's still a good show though. Howard and Artie also talked about how hot Jennifer Aniston is. Artie has seen her in person and Howard saw her on an airplane one time and they both said she's pretty hot.
Vinnie Favale called in and ended up telling Howard what he does for his job as Vice President of CBS Programming, East Coast. It sounds like he's basically a promotions guy for ''Late Show with David Letterman.'' He gets to hang out at while they shoot the show and he said he throws in ideas for the show sometimes.
All of the guys were talking about the football playoffs and which teams they think will win. They also talked about betting on games which led to Artie telling some stories about betting on games and even betting on a golf game one time.
Stuttering John's stand-up comedy came up again. Howard said he heard that John is embarrassingly bad but Artie said he was actually pretty good. Howard said he'd go to see the show just to see how bad it really is. KC also does some stand-up comedy but his material is about pedophiles and weird crap like that. He tried telling some jokes on the show but the delay button kept getting hit on him. He said some people really hate him after he does his material. He also yells at the audience when they don't listen to him. He said he did his act for some old people one time and they just looked down as he did his material. He said he yelled at them because they weren't looking at him. Dominic Barbara and Doug Goodstein both called in and talked about how disturbing his stuff is.
Fred had a rap music bed playing and Fruity went ahead and did her lame rap for Howard. She doesn't listen to the music though, she just reads her lines. Howard then did his impression again and did some raps of his own. After about 5 minutes of that he got rid of her so he could talk to Chuck Norris.
Howard talked to Chuck about Karate for a short time. Howard talked about what a pussy he was when he took Karate classes. Chuck said he still practices it. Howard said Gina is in great shape too and she just had twins 4 months ago. She said she uses that Total Gym thing that Chuck promotes in TV commercials. Howard was surprised that Chuck, who has a 39 year old kid, would want to have more kids. Chuck seems to be happy with the situation and said he's even taking care of the babies himself. He said he accidentally got a taste of Gina's breast milk one night. He said she was storing the milk in the refrigerator in water bottles after pumping it from her breasts. One night he went to the 'fridge and grabbed a bottle, gulped it down and then realized what it was. He said the milk was kind of sweet. He said he doesn't like milk so it wasn't something he'd normally drink.
Howard talked to Chuck about his rumored large penis. Gina said she was impressed with it when she saw it the first time. They also talked about how Chuck had to go through surgery to extract sperm from his balls to impregnate Gina. He said it wasn't painful and they extracted 6 viles of his stuff from the operation. Gina said she used fertility drugs and they extracted 11 eggs from her. She said out of those eleven, six of them produced embryos. Chuck said they almost had triplets but Gina wouldn't have been able to carry that many. He also said the twins were born 2 months early.
Howard spoke to the two of them about being both grandparents and new parents. Chuck had a grandchild that's 10 years old who calls Gina ''G'ma'' and finds it strange that she has a uncle who's only 4 months old.
Chuck spent a short time talking about this TV movie special ''The President's Man'' that he shot 5 months before the 9/11 tragedy. The movie is about a Bin laden-type who has a nuclear weapon brought into the United States to kill the President. Chuck has to go over to Afghanistan to kidnap the terrorist and bring him back to the States. He said in the movie the terrorist even makes a video tape where he gives codes to his followers, just like the real Bin laden.
Howard took a couple of quick phone calls and wrapped up the interview a little while after that. Stuttering John came in and asked Chuck how much money he made on the infomercials he did for that Total Gym thing. Chuck told a short story about that whole thing but didn't give details on the money he made on them.
During most of the interview Artie Lange was goofing on Tai. Howard had asked her about this ''balance bracelet'' that she promotes in an infomercial. She said it reduces minor aches and pains by taking out static electricity from your body or something ridiculous like that. Howard said she's got to know that it doesn't actually work. During the quiz Howard did Artie told Tai that if she didn't win the game they'd give all of the kids (in the charity she was donating to) those balance bracelets instead of the money. He also joked about her age. He asked her to send him a picture of herself... from 20 years ago. She seemed to take it all pretty well and only threatened to hang up once or twice.
Howard pointed out that Tai dated some brothers of famous guys. She dated Sean Penn's brother Chris so that was more material for Artie to goof on. He picked on a bunch of little things like that. Tai finally asked what Artie does on the show. He said ''You're hearing it'' as he joked about her.
Tai got in a plug for her web site TaiBabilonia.com where she sells her own clothing line and jewelry. She said she's going to make Robin a butterfly broach in her favorite color... which Robin says is green. Artie told Tai that it's spelled ''GREEN'' without an E at the end of it.
Howard got Mike Walker on the phone so they could get the game out of the way. Mike is appearing in an A&E special this Sunday called ''Gossip Tabloid Tales'' so he got a plug in for that. Howard then moved on to the game... Here's how it goes: Each week Mike Walker calls in with four gossip stories. Three of the stories are from his National Enquirer gossip column. One of the stories is false. Everyone tries to pick out the false story. The stories will appear in Mike's gossip column each week after he plays with Howard. Here are this week's stories:
