The Gossip Game With Guest Leslie West. 10/8/99. 9:00am
Rock guitarist and old friend of the show Leslie West came in to plug a bunch of stuff and to play the Mike Walker Gossip Game this morning. Howard got right to the gossip game because Mike had been waiting on the phone for quite a while. 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. Here are this week's stories:
Robin and Fred both picked number 3 as the false story. Gary picked number 4. Howard, Jackie and Leslie all picked number 1 as the false story. The actual false story was number 1. Robin's winning streak was finally broken.
- To avoid being beat up while in jail Robert Downey Jr. Has been giving acting classes to the other inmates.
- Whoopi Goldberg found co-star Brenden Frasier's ass so nice that she started grabbing it. Brenden wasn't too thrilled with it and Whoopi asked her people to find out if he was gay. She soon found out that he's not gay, he's just not interested in her.
- Heather Locklear and husband Ritchie Sambora have separate bedrooms in their New York apartment. Ritchie is such a slob that he has to keep his mess away from Heather. She's never set foot in his room.
- Andrew Dice Clay Silverstein fell asleep while filming a scene with stars Matt Dillon and Liv Tyler where he plays dead. He started snoring while they were doing their lines.
After the game Howard spent some time talking to Leslie about his weight loss and all of the other things going on in his life. Each time he comes in Howard talks to him about his erections or lack there of. Leslie has to inject or take drugs to get an erection due to health problems. He said that he's sometimes able to get an erection on his own now. He has a new girlfriend to help him get there. She came in to talk to Howard for a little while. Leslie told Howard how he and Ronnie hooked up a long time ago and just got back together recently. He met her when she was only 16 and he was 28. Howard said she's still pretty hot looking. Howard played a clip of Leslie's new song off his album ''As Phat As It Gets'' which just came out recently. Leslie also plugged a web site called HitTheBeach.com and his restaurant Sala which is located at 344 Bowery in New York City. Leslie will be appearing at Tower Records at Broadway and 4th in New York City tonight at 5pm. He'll be performing and signing autographs.
