November 2, 2008
"THE GAME'S' 'DELECTABALE BASKET OF TREATS' EPISODE. (10/31/2008)… Actors Robin Givens, Duane Martin, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Penny Marshall and former NBA players Rick Fox, Jalen Rose and Chris Paul (who currently plays for the New Orleans Hornets) all guest-star as themselves today's (October 31, 2008) all new episode (aptly titled Delectable Basket of Treats) of The Game. In last week's episode, we saw Malik (Hosea Chanchez)take the reins in hopes of helping Robin save face after the media learns of their marriage and deem it as a publicity stunt. In this week's episode, hoping to get more publicity for their celebrity marriage, Robin and Malik plan a belated wedding reception, but his mother, Tasha (Wendy Raquel Robinson) decides to boycott the party since she believes their marriage is a sham and won't support it. At the reception, Derwin (Pooch Hall) and Melanie (Tia Mowry) must face the reality of their complicated relationship after many people mistakenly congratulate Melanie on her pregnancy. Meanwhile, Rick reluctantly introduces Tasha to his overly protective mother (guest star Penny Marshall), causing fireworks to ensue between the two headstrong women. Brittany Daniel ('Kelly Pitts') and Coby Bell ('Jason Pitts') also star.
