Twenty years later, Maury Povich‘s talk show is still leaving viewers’ jaws on the floor.

PEOPLE Now recently caught up with the legendary TV host, who opened up about the last Maury guest that truly shocked him: A woman pregnant with twins from two different fathers, which has happened not once but twice on his show.

“The first time it happened, I just didn’t believe it,” said Povich, 78. “I looked at my staff on set and I said: ‘That’s impossible — did I read something wrong?’ ”

Well, not quite: The phenomenon can happen when two eggs from the same mother get fertilized by two different fathers within the same ovulation period.

“Doctors say it’s a million-to-one shot,” said Povich. “It twice on my show.”

Of course, we had to ask Povich a question that’s surely crossed most fans’ minds: Are all of the guests and their crazy stories real?

“Of course,” he insisted. “This is not Springer. Jerry and I have known each other a long time and I love his honesty: He says his show is wrestling. My show is not wrestling.”

“My show is for real, and these people, we check them out,” he continued. “I operate like a news room. We have seven production teams and they look at these stories, they check them out back in their hometowns, they talk to their friends, they talk to their family members. This is real stuff.”

So if that’s the case, why do people choose to air their dirty laundry on TV?

“I wonder about that,” he said. “People say: ‘Why would they do that?!’ And basically, I think, they find that there’s a safe place on the show. I offer them that, and they unburden themselves.”

“They think that maybe after the show, if there’s a lot of the baggage before the show, maybe if it can all come out, they can start again,” he added.

And last but not least, Povich revealed the number one things fans have to say to him when they come across him on the street.

“It’s very simple,” he said. “If they recognize me, they go: ‘Hey, Maury. I’m not the father.’ ”

Fergie will finally release her sophomore album next week: Did her split from Josh Duhamel fuel any of the new music?

In December, the singer opened up to PEOPLE about her “autobiographical” forthcoming record.

“I just wanted to … peel back the layers and show my vulnerable side,” she added of the visual album, Double Dutchess, due Sept. 22. “There’s so much vulnerability on my album.”

Indeed, she said the LP — her first since 2006’s The Dutchess — was an outlet through which she could “emotionally explode.”

“There’s one called ‘Love Is Pain’ that’s extremely emotional,” Fergie said of the track that will close the set. “And I have another one called ‘Save It Til Morning’ … a few subjects. They just came from my journals.”

On Thursday, Fergie, 42, and Duhamel, 44, revealed they have separated after eight years of marriage and 13 years together.

“With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year,” the couple — who share a 4-year-old son, Axl — said in a joint statement exclusively to PEOPLE. “To give our family the best opportunity to adjust, we wanted to keep this a private matter before sharing it with the public. We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family.”

In 2009, the pair’s marriage was rocked by scandal just 9 months after their wedding, when an Atlanta exotic dancer alleged she had an affair with Duhamel. The actor’s rep vehemently denied the allegations at the time.
