The Gossip Game With Nicole Bass. 9/17/99. 7:05am
Nicole Bass came in to talk about her sexual harassment lawsuit this morning but first Howard had her play the Mike Walker gossip game. 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, Nicole and Jackie all picked number 2 as the false story. Howard picked number 1 and Fred picked number 3. The actual false story was number two.
- Christina Applegate is going to become a minister of some wacky church.
- Ed Begley Jr. Has purchased a heard of sheep to ''naturally'' mow his lawn.
- Janet Jackson has spent a lot of money ''baby-proofing'' her home for her new pet dog Fluffy.
- When Richard Dreyfus asked a waiter to remove the meat from his lobster the waiter asked if he'd like him to feed him also. Dreyfus complained but the waiter wasn't fired. He didn't receive a tip though.
After the game Howard spent some time talking to Nicole about her $120 Million lawsuit against the WWF(World Wrestling Federation). Nicole explained how an employee of the WWF grabbed her breasts while she was on an airline flight. Howard was amazed that anyone would dare touch a 6'2'' tall, 225 pound woman like that. Nicole said she slugged the guy but didn't knock him out or anything like that. She said the guy threatened her so she kept her mouth shut about it while she was still working for the WWF. She said she had to watch her back the whole time she was wrestling because she was afraid this guy would do something to her. She also said that she had a problem with being hit with a real guitar when it was supposed to be a gimmick guitar. There's a lot more in her lawsuit but she wasn't bringing it all up today. Howard also discussed the sitcom he was thinking about earlier in the morning. Nicole seemed like she'd be into it.
