Michelle Williams Plays The Gossip Game. 6/4/99. 7:35am
Actress Michelle Williams from ''Dawson's Creek'' came in to play the Mike Walker Gossip Game this morning. She was also there to plug the play she's appearing in, ''Killer Joe.'' She appears in the play naked for about 3 minutes. You can catch the play at the Soho Playhouse in New York City until the end of June. Howard spent a few minutes talking to 18 year old Michelle about the play then they moved on to the gossip game. Robin said she saw the play before Michelle was in it and said she loved it. Howard said he wants to see it just to see Michelle naked. Howard is a fan of Michelle's since she's on one of his favorite shows, ''Dawson's Creek.'' Howard got the game out of the way so he could interview her for a little while longer.
Each week Mike Walker calls in with 4 gossip stories. 3 of the stories are from his National Enquirer gossip column, one of them is false. Everyone tries to pick out the false story. Here are this weeks four stories:
Michelle picked number 2 as the false story. Robin and Jackie both picked number 3 and Howard picked number 4. The actual false story was number one. No winners again this week.
- Prince Albert of Monoco has been wearing hats every day to cover up his scabbing head after getting hair transplants.
- Nicolas Cage recently said that he enjoys scraping off lottery tickets. Not because he wants the money, just because he likes the feel of the coin scraping off the film on the cards.
- Noah Wiley showed his fiance how dedicated he is to her by tossing his little black address book on his bar-b-q grill.
- Jenna Elfman is taking speed reading classes so she can scan her many movie scripts more quickly. Ricky Martin is also getting scripts but he's having them put on audio cassette so he can read them by listening to them.
After the game Howard went on to ask Michelle about working on ''Dawson's Creek'' and about how she emancipated herself from her parents at age 15! Michelle finished high school by taking an independent study course at 15. She didn't like her parents and she wanted to act so she was emancipated from them. She said that her father was kind of strange. He was a commodities trader but then he'd disappear for 3 months at a time. She found out that he was over in Saudi Arabia searching for Noah's Ark for 3 months at a time. She said she lost her virginity at 14. Howard asked her if she's banging any of the guys on the TV show and she said that she doesn't mix business with pleasure. She doesn't have a boyfriend at this time either. Howard also found out that she's staying with a gay male couple in New York City while she's working on the ''Killer Joe'' play. She said that all of them sleep in the same bed but nothing happens since the guys are gay. She said they sit around and girl talk all the time. They even tell her what to wear each morning. Michelle also told Howard how she grew her pubic hair for her part in ''Killer Joe.'' She said it doesn't look like Larry from the Three Stooges but it's not shaved down either.
