Marian K. I think they`re young. There are still a lot of people skeptical about that. I was not going to watch “Housewives of D.C.” I`ve had enough with that Salahi chick.

RAY: No. We don`t need Botox. She`s had $150 million dollars. Go behind the scenes at SHOWBIZ TONIGHT and get breaking entertainment news alerts on Twitter. But as their second engagement a big old publicity stunt? The jaw dropping results from our exclusive Bristol and Levi poll.

TEXT: Prosecutors claim doctors over-medicated Anna Nicole Smith. Simply leave a message. It can work. and Mrs. I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood. There`s so much tape she looks ridiculous saying Whoopi hit her.

So I don`t think it`s out of line for Julia to express what`s real and comfortable for her. Drew Barrymore reveals her phone sex secrets. And in the end, it`s not their choice. I think it surely was a riff and they decided to make the decision that was best for them.

ANDERSON: I got to move to the blockbuster news breaking today that “American Idol” is getting its original boss back. You know, I don`t know how I`m going to get through the next season without Simon.

And now, the “SHOWBIZ News Ticker” – more stories from the SHOWBIZ TONIGHT newsroom making news today.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: All this press, you know, what occurred yesterday – we`re just so finished with it.

And I would expect Julia Roberts, who we all can relate to, we love, and go to her movies because we feel that she`s almost the girl next door – we expect her to be real. And let me tell you, plastic surgeons are not going to like what she says at all.

RAY: I thought that Whoopi was touching her -

Drew`s sexy dial up. Let`s be done with it.

ANDERSON: Yes. But does Paula want “Idol” back? This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN news and views.

ANDERSON: OK. Should Paula Abdul say yes?

ANDERSON: No, no, no. Salahi -

And then there are bombshell new details today about the plan to shake up “American Idol.” What new faces will be at the judges` table? The explosive details just revealed today. I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood. This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN news and views.

With me, right now from New York, Ereka Vetrini. F that. Look, the wide camera angle showed that Whoopi did not hit her.

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen`s breast-feeding backlash is exploding today. But when you`re an international singing star, losing a bet could make you end up on TMZ.

TEXT: President Obama celebrates his 49th birthday in Chicago with dinner with Oprah. And now, guess what? They`re about to get married. There`s more breaking Palin news today, this time about Sarah`s daughter, Bristol. And I`ve got to tell you -


Hey, it seems like Gisele and her fellow supermodel, Naomi Campbell, have gone from the catwalk to controversy. She was just passionate about the fact she learned something outside of looking fabulous in panties for a living. And it`s not like – I don`t know. I want to have some idea of what I`ll look like before I start cleaning the slates.”

Joining me right now in Hollywood, Ken Baker, who is E`s chief news correspondent.

(voice-over): “The View” has had its share of wars. There are circumstances in which women can`t do this. Yes. But on the “Today” show this morning, it really turned into a Michaele bash fest with Michaele sitting right there for the entire thing. Tanika, Gisele has already – she`s already backtracked.

ANDERSON: No. We don`t need plastic surgery. It looked like something like a space invasion.

Right now, in New York, is Marvet Britto who is a celebrity publicist. I want to take a look at all the provocative shoots that have been revealed since Lindsay got into big trouble.

RAY: She`s not Oprah. One baby, and now she`s an expert.”

ANDERSON: Because it even seems her – other cast members of “The Real Housewives of D.C.” are fired up about her.

(voice-over): Taylor`s swift kick. I sure hope it hits our house.

She`s really, really proud of this new phase in her life. That`s the keyword there – teenage parents. And this is a woman whose brand has organically been built by the purity and wholesomeness and real raw persona that she`s always perceived since many of us came to know her in “Pretty Woman.”

CALLER: Just because she has a child, she was able to do it, doesn`t mean everybody else can. Yes.

NAOMI CAMPBELL, SUPERMODEL: When I was sleeping, I had a knock at my door. Julia`s plastic surgery shocker. With Simon and Ellen out, there are some huge shoes to fill at the judges` table.

And Drew Barrymore`s outrageous sex confession today. Thanks, ladies.


VETRINI: But she loves herself.

Come on, girl. Rosie versus Elisabeth. Labor hurts. She looks fantastic.

Earlier this year she took on board as a business manager a woman named Lou Taylor. Calls us at “Showbiz on Call,” and there`s always E-mail. Whoopi Goldberg on the warpath today with the so-called White House gatecrasher on live TV.

And it`s really just the perils of being a young couple living your life in the limelight. I don`t think she should be making mothers and wives feel inadequate about themselves.

VETRINI: You`re not -

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Those are serious allegations.

Marvet, Cathy, we all know, Julia – drop dead gorgeous. Here`s what`s coming up at the bottom of the hour on SHOWBIZ TONIGHT.

But first, there`s big news breaking in “The Buzz” today. Here`s our SHOWBIZ Flashpoint. And one of the two said, “Well, that`s obviously Charles Taylor.”


AREU: Well, she actually didn`t say she`ll never use it. Yes, she seemed kind of annoyed that she even had to address it. So I did it. More big news today, ladies, about the Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston break-up. Take a look. And she just needs to step back, regroup and think about what she says before she opens her mouth. Stop it.

“I want my kids to know when I`m peeved, when I`m happy and when I`m confounded. Here`s what I don`t get. It would be nice to see her there as a stable force. The show gets a new boss and he wants Paula Abdul back on the show. But you just can`t please everybody, can you?

I thought it was pretty funny, though I do think he was wearing a Speedo. Tanika, yes. Oh, yes. And the prosecution thinks it`s critical in establishing whether he, in fact, ever was in possession of blood diamonds. I cannot agree with that.”

VETRINI: Yes, but -

And is Enrique Iglesias all wet and totally naked? The video you`ve got to see. “Glee`s” Jane Lynch gets wax figure in Hollywood.



OK. Drew Barrymore has just confessed she`s had phone sex, just like she does in her upcoming film, “Going The Distance.” Drew tells “Marie Claire U.K.,” quote, “Oh, I`ve had successful phone sex. If you pay your dues, if you take care of yourself personally, you`re able to rehabilitate yourself and you really show remorse and you show that you`re taking accountability and responsibility for your actions, I think everyone in Hollywood is going to be willing, ready and able to take her back.

ANDERSON: Ereka, at the same time, do you think people need to give her a break like Tanika did?


“It`s super weird. I`ve got to move on right now to some incredible star confessions today. Yes, Nigel Lythgoe confirmed today that he is rejoining the show as an executive producer.

And now, the “SHOWBIZ News Ticker” – more stories from the SHOWBIZ TONIGHT newsroom making news today.


Now, the “SHOWBIZ News Ticker” – more stories from the SHOWBIZ TONIGHT newsroom making news today.

RAY: Oh, she loves herself and she loves the focus on her, too.


He was totally team Paula then. LeAnn Rimes takes to Twitter to show her love for Eddie Cibrian.

ANDERSON: Here`s the thing. Eastern and Pacific.

So I`m thinking – and we`ll end it here. That`s all. And now this, a big spread in today`s “New York Daily News” showing Lindsay hawking new handbag lines.


SALAHI: When I got off, I was still fine. In this really incredible battle, both Whoopi and Michaele agree that Whoopi dropped many an F-bomb. Housewives.”


ANDERSON: Great point, Susan. Everybody wanting a piece of supermodel Gisele Bundchen, and not in a good way.

Kendall is the 14-year-old sister of Kim Kardashian and Kim was cheering her on a few weeks ago when Kendall posed for these racy modeling pictures which sparked a ton of controversy.

ANDERSON: But Tanika will be tuning into “The Real Housewives of D.C.” Ereka Vetrini and Tanika Ray, thank you both.

And today, she`s back. A front page challenge to her. The SHOWBIZ Flashpoint today – should Paula return to “Idol”?



TEXT: George Lucas to donate half of his fortune to charity. Whoopi is copping to that one.

SALAHI: No. Whoopi Goldberg, who wasn`t even in that segment, emerged from backstage and apparently touched Salahi`s arm.




ANDERSON: Well, I`ve got to say the blistering “New York Post” smackdown did not give her a pass. OK. The next morning, at breakfast, I told Ms. I mean, that were so choice you could have cut them with a knife and eaten them.

Well, we`ve all done it. She says that when giving birth, labor doesn`t hurt. We`ll play some of your calls right here on SHOWBIZ TONIGHT.

OK. Watch.


SHERRI SHEPHERD, CO-HOST, “THE VIEW”: The infamous White House party crashers -

ANDERSON: She was like, what, they`re talking about the Bravo show. We cannot compare ourselves to Gisele Bundchen.

ANDERSON: The conversation soon turned to the White House state dinner last November where Salahi and her husband famously showed up allegedly without a proper formal invitation. So we got to ask in our SHOWBIZ TONIGHT Flashpoint – Lindsay in jail, best business decision ever?


GOLDBERG: So I went up to her, and I told her that she knew I didn`t hit her. Naomi Campbell on the witness stand today at a war crime`s trial.

ANDERSON: Yes. But if he was going to do the best justice of Paula, he would put Paula on “So You Think You Can Dance?” It`s the most perfect fit. We would hate her more if she said, “I`m gorgeous and I have a gorgeous husband.” No, no, no.

VETRINI: Surprise -


ANDERSON: Cathy, quickly – was it a PR stunt to you?


RAY: I`m in -

ANDERSON: And now, the Showbiz lineup. Well, let`s talk about some of those strategic moves. She`s been carrying a torch for Butch for nearly 46 years. They never have.

ANDERSON: Girl power. What do you say?

Now, her husband is apparently throwing wine on one housewife and they`re sparring. Julia Roberts makes a stunning plastic surgery confession. You heard what Joy said at the end. All right. That`s true. The video was just leaked online and it is everywhere today. All I`m going to tell you right now is that Drew likes it on speed dial. It is 30 minutes past the hour. What Naomi said today about alleged blood diamonds.

Welcome back to SHOWBIZ TONIGHT. I hope this work this out. This is ridiculous. And needless to say, I really went off then. Your face tells a story, and it shouldn`t be a story about your drive to the doctor`s office.”

ANDERSON: Yes, we are. I do have to move to more supermodel madness, because Naomi Campbell took the stand today in the Netherlands at the war crimes trials, very serious trial.

ANDERSON: Did you see this? Katie Couric mocking the name of one of Sarah Palin`s kids. Time will tell. But listen. She`s insulted a lot of people, outraged a lot of people by her statements, her judgments.

RAY: She brings controversy with her. Kim Kardashian was gushing again about her kid sister, writing on her blog, quote, “She`s hard working, driven and so talented at such a young age. That`s Enrique, naked as the day he was born, waterskiing in Miami.

Blockbuster “American Idol” news today. It`s our exclusive SHOWBIZ TONIGHT poll – “New `American Idol` BOSS WANTS PAULA Abdul Back: Should she return to the show?” We want you to vote at

SALAHI: Whoopi came into the room and said, you know, “F this. Look, ladies. You make a bet. Keeping it real – but Marvet, I hate to even say this, but there are those – I`ve heard people say that they feel a little bit annoyed with Julia. Do you agree?

Whoopi spoke out today for the very first time about the explosive confrontation between her and Michaele Salahi live on “The View.” Salahi was on the show to promote her new reality show, “Real Housewives of D.C.” But she got a real reality check when Whoopi tried to put her in her place.

ANDERSON: Susan from Kentucky says that Gisele needs to just stick to what she knows best.

Naomi Campbell`s dramatic testimony today at the trial of an alleged brutal dictator. Kim tweeted new pictures of Kendall looking way older than her 14 years. Choice words.

KIM KARDASHIAN, REALITY TV STAR: I spent the last two days calling everybody I know so I can make sure that I set Kendall up with the best modeling agency possible. And Taylor Swift gives the boot to bootleggers.

ANDERSON: Today, the Salahis are on the warpath against “The View” and anyone one else who calls them the C-word.


ANDERSON: Is it us, or did that not quite seem like a heartfelt mea culpa? “The View” told SHOWBIZ TONIGHT they`re not going to talk about this mess anymore.

SALAHI: I started crying. She wasn`t. It`s reached the point of absurdity.

ANDERSON: “I am very lucky. This is still a family show. Ryan O`Neal and his one-time estranged daughter could be heading to reality TV land. Look, she could have said it – “I know I`m a very fortunate woman. “Idol`s” new boss wants Paula back. Her oldest son, 19-year-old Trap – I wonder how do they get these -

ANDERSON: OK. Look at her. So here`s the question. Don`t worry. Whoopi came into the room and said, you know, “F this.”

ANDERSON: What a great classic show, right? “The Munsters” was a huge hit in the `60s. But I`m thinking it is possible she could have masterminded this in the weeks and months before she had to go to jail. She`s so nutty and unpredictable in that role as “Idol” judge.

RAY: Yes.

Amy in Nevada thinks Gisele`s breastfeeding comments were totally out of line, “Instead of Gisele telling moms it should be a law, she should pay moms on maternity leave so they can enjoy being home to breastfeed their children instead of having to go back to work. Drew Barrymore`s phone sex secrets. But today, both stars making some remarkable true confessions about their personal lives.

ANDERSON: Thanks, Colleen. And we`re still TV`s most provocative entertainment news show seven days a week at 11:00 p.m. And she was pontificating on the fact she loves breastfeeding and how great it is. I think that people go on.

Star true confessions today. I think I started crying because now, I have someone I don`t even know. But given the circumstances of what she`d been doing over the last several years, it was a necessary step.

Aired August 5, 2010 – 23:00:00   ET

KATIE COURIC, CBS NEWS ANCHOR: Catapulted from obscurity to the national stage, Sarah Palin has something else to celebrate today – her 20th wedding anniversary. Taylor Swift has just moved, well, swiftly to release her new single because she was ripped off. And there`s even more choicer words. She said she didn`t even look at it until the next morning.

GOLDBERG: Here`s another camera that shows exactly what I did and what I said.

ANDERSON: And one reason she wanted to live outside of Hollywood was to keep her family protected, keep her kids away from the limelight. All moms out there know. She gave it to a friend. Their startling confessions, today.

RAY: No.

Did you see this? Take a good look. No, I don`t think they`re that smart.

BAKER: Thanks.

ANDERSON: I can tell you one thing. Never say never.


Today, we got proof of that. What do her kids have to do with her controversial decision?

SHOWBIZ TONIGHT is here to offer you some advice. Susan M. She`s like, it`s another free thing. And I agree, they were harsh on her -

However, I`m going to say – I don`t mean to go out – I`m going to say something to defend her just a little bit. I don`t think they`re clever enough to pull a PR stunt like this. Whatever.

GOLDBERG: She knew I didn`t hit her.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Did you say she hit me? Or she -

ANDERSON: Now, on SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, supermodel madness today. They live a phony, fake, Bonnie and Clyde life. Farrow and Ms. thinks Jennifer looks fantastic and healthy and says don`t hate, appreciate, “Why can`t people be happy that she can make herself feel and look great? Why is it that when a plus-size woman loses weight, she`s abandoning all her plus-size fans? But it`s not a big deal when a guy does it.”

And supermodel Gisele Bundchen`s breastfeeding backlash explodes today. And these are why – I`m grateful for these X, Y and Z. Does she plan on going under the knife to help her stay looking young?


Mary Hart will leave the show after next season. She was the drama cheerleader in high school. I`m sorry. I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood with big news breaking today – Whoopi`s war.

Enrique made a bet that if Spain won the World Cup he would waterski in the buff. “Showbiz Connects” at

How do the rest of us in the world are supposed to look at this woman and say, “I`m supposed to be that? No, no, no. Drew Barrymore`s sex phone revelation. It`s just another present for her. She`s never been identified with the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. Listen to this. Lindsay naked with a guitar – my goodness. Behind the scenes, what`s been going on with Lindsay`s finances is very interesting.

RAY: She needed to. Now, I got to tell you about the explosive E-mails and phone calls flooding the SHOWBIZ TONIGHT newsroom today. But then her husband got in my face, had his Blackberry out and started taking pictures of me. She`s learned a couple of things along the way.

ANDERSON: And about claims she dropped the F-bomb backstage? OK. Then, her upcoming new movie “Inferno.” In that, she plays porn star Linda Lovelace.

ANDERSON: And I kind of agree with you, Ereka. That dinner included Quincy Jones, Mia Farrow. You don`t dissect what it is that you get for free. They feel that maybe she acts superior in a way. It`s laughable. Outraged mom everywhere saying how dare she tell us how to raise our children.

She says her hubby`s love child strengthened their relationship. So is this the beginning of an all-out war of Michaele Salahi against – well, against the rest of the world? Which brings us to our SHOWBIZ Flashpoint – are you on team Whoopi or team Michaele?

ELISABETH HASSELBECK, CO-HOST, “THE VIEW”: Michaele`s lawyer sent us a statement last night insisting that both the Salahis did not crash the White House party, that they were, in fact, invited to the party and pointing out that they have not been charged with any crime.

RAY: Let me translate model-ese for you. I think she has a long and successful career ahead of her. I just want to say, Mary Hart, thank you for paving the way for all of us who are entertainment reporters. Drew`s phone sex secrets revealed today.

BAKER: So I think there`s a lot of issues at play here. Take it from me. I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood with big news breaking today – supermodel madness.

RAY: That`s what I love about Whoopi. And I think that we`re watching their crazy lives unfold. It`s supermodel madness today. Can`t you tell that right now? It`s like, shut your mouth. The legendary entertainment news host is leaving “Entertainment Tonight,” this after nearly three decades of wowing us with her exciting reporting and, of course, right, those iconic legs.

Ereka Vetrini, Tanika Ray, it was a lot of fun. Snoop Dogg does. They`re now pitching a reality show called “Lost and Found” that would include showing them going through therapy together.

VETRINI: No, no, no, no, no.

ANDERSON: All right. Star versus Barbara. Usher celebrates 15th and 16th top 10 hits, “DJ Got Us Falling in Love” and “OMG.”

BROOKE ANDERSON, HOST: Big news breaking today on SHOWBIZ TONIGHT – Whoopi`s war. I think she had good intentions, but she expressed herself in a really insensitive, absurd manner. I think the window of opportunity has closed. I know I`m blessed with a gorgeous husband, five-foot legs, you know, $25 million, a housekeeper,” so I get it.


Really intimate stuff, what I`m talking about here. But SHOWBIZ TONIGHT can tell you “The View`s” biggest war yet has broken out between Whoopi and so-called White House gatecrasher, Michaele Salahi -

“I`ve had the privilege of spending 29 years doing something I love. And I don`t know what this Salahi is even thinking about. Also in New York is Cathy Areu, publisher of “Catalina” magazine.



TEXT: Sean Penn and Robin Wright Penn`s divorce finalized. I think they don`t really know what they`re doing right now. But I think her coming in and saying F that, F this -


VETRINI: You`re right. hopes Jennifer can keep it up, “She looks great. The remarkable outrage today over Bundchen`s demand for a worldwide law, forcing all moms to breast-feed their babies for the first six months showed no signs of slowing down.

ANDERSON: OK. You`re right. Should Paula return to “Idol”? Ereka, what do you think?

ANDERSON: On the “Today” show this morning -

ANDERSON: So you`re giving her a pass?

RAY: More choicer words -

Look, I think people in Hollywood look at Lindsay this way. So we asked in our SHOWBIZ TONIGHT exclusive poll – “Bristol and Levi Breakup: Do you think this is a giant publicity stunt?”


ANDERSON: That`s Bruce Jenner on “Keeping up with the Kardashians” desperately trying to be the voice of reason before these eye-popping bikini pictures of his daughter, Kendall, were revealed.

And Gisele Bundchen`s breastfeeding backlash explodes today with the front page challenge, “How dare this woman tell us how to raise our children.”

RAY: She always does.


Big news today about Lindsay`s big-buck lockdown. I`m a guest of their show. I`m honestly bursting with pride.”

ANDERSON: No, but Michaele didn`t say – she kind of backtracked on that a little bit. Why are we taking the model seriously? Why are we listening to what she`s saying? It`s a model.

Is that really Enrique Iglesias waterskiing naked? It`s the unbelievable video you`ve got to see today, but don`t worry. You`ve got to love when a man keeps his word, right, even if it is going to end up on TMZ like this video did.

Return to Transcripts main page

GOLDBERG: And I make no, you know, apology for my choice words. Thank you so much for watching. Both Whoopi and Michaele hit the air waves this morning to give their sides of their explosive encounter on “The View.”


I mean, they have a history of making crazy decisions. And it goes on to list the reasons why Gisele is not like other moms by pointing out the following – she lost 30 pounds of baby weight almost instantly.

Plus, take a look. And you know, it seems like nobody really likes this woman, Michaele Salahi -

ANDERSON: My, my, my, my. She had to come out from backstage -

GOLDBERG: I really went off then. And today, there`s a surprising new twist for one of the iconic stars. And yes, you know how I said it. And we`re going to leave that one right there. And I opened my door. You can`t see what they look like. She`s a supermodel. Cathy, quickly, does Joy have it right though? Maybe Julia should be careful about saying she`ll never use Botox?

SHEPHERD: Crashers.

But the other girls kind of bashing her, too, has made me thought maybe the other girls are more interesting than Salahi is. Marvet Britto, Cathy Areu, thank you both for your insight.

RAY: I`m giving her a pass. First look at Katy Perry`s new music video, “Teenage Dream.”

VETRINI: One thing, “The View” deserves to have their hand slapped for one thing. I`ve reached a point when I clearly realize it`s time for a change. Let`s age gracefully together.

ANDERSON: And the girl is bringing glamour to the courtroom. I want to know -

ANDERSON: More choicer words.

CALLER: I believe it is outrageous what she said about women having to mandatorily breastfeed their children. Is that really Enrique Iglesias waterskiing naked? The unbelievable video you`ve got to see today. Immediately afterwards, reports surfaced that Salahi claimed Whoopi had hit – yes, hit her on camera. It appears to be dying a slow death.”


ANDERSON: And you know, no matter who`s right and who`s wrong here, no matter where this woman goes, controversy follows. She is a senior editor with “In Touch Weekly.” And in Hollywood, Tanika Ray, who is an entertainment journalist.

Shocking true confessions from two of Hollywood`s biggest stars. Now, they want a writing credit and royalties. And that later the two had a backstage blow-up.

Cathy, the girl is honest. Oprah`s new short hairdo for the September issue of “O” magazine is a wig!

Take a look, ladies, at this headline in the “New York Post” today, “How dare this woman tell us how to raise our children.” As you can see, an arrow pointing straight at Gisele. A lot of people have been speculating that Lindsay being thrown in the slammer was the best thing that could have ever happened to her business-wise. Have your reality show.

ANDERSON: She didn`t say that she hit her, but it shook her up, that Whoopi -

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Are you accusing her of that?

ANDERSON: Their attorney tells SHOWBIZ TONIGHT “The View” hosts defamed the Salahis by constantly referring to them as “the White House crashers.” This morning, “The View” hosts read a disclaimer.

KEN BAKER, CHIEF NEWS CORRESPONDENT, “E!”: I don`t think it was the best thing that could have happened to her. Is that really Enrique Iglesias waterskiing naked? I don`t know about you but I don`t see a whole lot there. Ryan O`Neal has just revealed we may be seeing him and his daughter, Tatum, in a reality show on their life together again after 25 years of being estranged.

The “Showbiz on Call” phone lines blowing up, too, over Gisele`s breastfeeding controversy. She said, “For now, I`m not going to do it.” But, you know – she almost said, “I`ll reconsider it later.” So she left it open. She could care less. Here`s the thing, Brooke. I mean, for Naomi, all the stuff she gets free – she wants to get cars thrown at her. Katy doesn`t even sing the line. Moms telling Gisele to mind her own business when it comes to raising other people`s kids.

And I just think it`s kind of ridiculous to throw her into this lawsuit. It`s just (INAUDIBLE). So, yes. It just feels like it`s old now and Paula can`t come back.

SALAHI: I know her from, like, the movie “Sister Act.” So I don`t expect the sister to be saying “F you.”

Plus, breaking today on the “SHOWBIZ News Ticker” – Usher`s new milestone and Jane Lynch gets waxed.


EREKA VETRINI, SENIOR EDITOR, “IN TOUCH WEEKLY”: I would never be dumb enough to cross Whoopi ever. I don`t think she was really saying there should be a law.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Are you guys over her?

The startling results just in late today. And I agree with her. So this isn`t out of line with what we would expect her to say as it relates to beauty standards that she`s really applied to her lifestyle.

RAY: They looked like dirty rocks. She cannot be less loopy.


CATHY AREU, PUBLISHER, “CATALINA MAGAZINE”: Well, I think America`s sweetheart is giving all of us a pep talk. It`s hard to believe she is 42 years old. And, hey, a bet`s a bet. Butch Patrick, who played Eddie Munster, was a huge star and teen heartthrob long before they were boy bands and Justin Bieber.

Ken, person change, learning her lesson, redemption aside – we know those are the priority – all that aside. I think they`re really young, they`re in love.

Welcome back to SHOWBIZ TONIGHT. There are many things I want to do in my life and I`d better get on with them.”

ANDERSON: And say, “Move on, sister.”

ANDERSON: A cast member on Bravo`s brand-new reality show “Real Housewives of D.C.”


And that is a wrap for SHOWBIZ TONIGHT. She used to write him love letters all the time when he was on “The Munsters.”

ANDERSON: But that didn`t stop Whoopi`s touch from touching off a firestorm. Drew, really, some things are better left between you and AT & T. This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN news and views.

VETRINI: She could say, “I feel like I`m very blessed. They`re negative energy. Bring Paula back. I totally tried it, though, with a little success at one point in my life. She was being passionate, speaking in a beautiful accent. has a more cryptic message, “As much as I have loved watching `American Idol` I think it needs to end now. Moving on now, Julia Roberts and Drew Barrymore are adored, plain and simple. In a brand-new interview revealed today, Julia Roberts speaking out about Botox and plastic surgery. And you see people running wild saying it`s for a charity, and then it goes in your pocket. It`s a beautiful journey. She hasn`t had a meltdown yet on the stand.

RAY: There`s a lot of nutty chicks that can go on “American Idol.”

ANDERSON: Hi, there. Even you`re a supermodel, you are not superhuman. Julia`s plastic surgery revelations. And I think by not getting the Botox and the plastic surgery, she`s keeping it real for all of us.

ANDERSON: And Whoopi says she even clashed with the other so-called White House gatecrasher, Michaele`s husband, Tareq.

RAY: She did.

ANDERSON: Clash of the titans? More like clash of the crashers. Tanika, team Whoopi or team Michaele?

RAY: Ereka, we`ll just hate her more for that. Supermodel Naomi Campbell takes the witness stand today at a war crimes trial. My summer ends and I love it.

Ryan`s reality reunion. And that`s the thing I love about this. Lindsay Lohan may have been locked away in jail and now in rehab, but that hasn`t stopped the money from rolling in big time.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Boy, look at the neat lightning. So Julia knows (INAUDIBLE).

I cannot believe that, not one, but two supermodels are smack dab in the middle of huge controversies today. So give us a ring – 1-888-SBT-BUZZ; 1-888-728-2899. What is up with her?

And I say “able” because in the past, reportedly, there have been some insurance problems of just getting her on the set and getting insurance for her.


TANIKA RAY: Whoopi! Come on. This is actually a really big deal and I`m so surprised this is happening so fast for her.

ANDERSON: I don`t know, though. I got to hand it to Naomi. The song quickly rocketed to number one on iTunes` real time chart.


ANDERSON: The show has not been the same without her.

ANDERSON: I love that, too. Never, ever invite Whoopi Goldberg and the White House party crasher to the same party.

ANDERSON: Don`t you love, though, how Whoopi couldn`t help herself?

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. Eastern Monday through Friday. And I`ve got to say that our “Showbiz on Call” phone lines did not stop ringing today with calls about Gisele.

ANDERSON: This morning, on “The View,” Whoopi denied hitting Salahi.


NED MARTEL, STYLE EDITOR, “WASHINGTON POST”: It`s a clash of the titans.

RAY: Tanika, to the SHOWBIZ Flashpoint, do you think Paula Abdul should return to the show?

Right now, in New York, Ereka Vetrini who is the senior editor for “In Touch Weekly.” And right now, in Hollywood, Tanika Ray who is an entertainment journalist. And judging by the slew of new photo shoots and business deals rolling out almost daily, Lindsay must have been really busy in the weeks before she went to jail. Instead she`s like, “This is the way it is, ladies.”

BRITTO: I don`t think they would put their public life on display in such a way really to show vulnerability if it was for publicity. She`s got a great point. Don`t listen to Gisele. Listen to what she says, “It`s unfortunate that we live in such a panicked, dysmorphic society where women don`t even give themselves a chance to see what they`ll look like as older persons. The caught-on-tape happened on the very day Sarah was chosen to be the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008.

Taylor allegedly gave Naomi some of those diamonds after a dinner at Nelson Mandela`s place. More sexy photos inside. OK. She had it tough on “The View.”

RAY: Yes.


Enrique`s naked jaunt was taped late last month. But at the same time, we`re all paying attention.


As for the Salahis, you can bet a couple willing to parlay a major White House security breach into a reality show gig will think about nothing about using their battle with Whoopi to extend their 15 minutes of fame.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I can tell on your face.

VETRINI: Bring Paula back. Look closely at this. I mean, they were so choice you could have cut them with a knife and eaten them.

RAY: They should have been.

OK. Her disturbing testimony today about alleged blood diamonds.

Then, one day she decided to track down her childhood crush to see what he was up to. It is our SHOWBIZ TONIGHT exclusive poll – “New `American Idol` Boss Wants Paula Abdul Back: Should she return to the show?” Keep voting,

WHOOPI GOLDBERG, CO-HOST, “THE VIEW”: I make no, you know, apology for my choice words.

And just this morning on “The View,” Sherri Shepherd said that she agrees with Julia and that people need to stop going to extremes to look young. The explosive new message for Gisele today from outraged moms everywhere – how dare you tell women how to raise their kids?


RAY: Girl power!

ANDERSON: Wearing orange? What? Drew is not the only star making some big confessions today. Are you in the majority that this was not some sort of publicity stunt?

AREU: Yes. Whoopi and Michaele and probably Michaele and these other housewives -

MARVET BRITTO, CELEBRITY PUBLICIST: Not at all. We`ll have that in a moment.

Remember, he ran the show its first six seasons. SHOWBIZ TONIGHT is just learning Swift was forced to rush the release of her song, “Mine,” far ahead of schedule because a bootleg version began showing up online. Just when you thought Michaele Salahi was going to go away and be in this little reality show, and we`re going to kind of forget the party crashing, now, she wants to accuse Whoopi of hitting.

RAY: Absolutely.

SHEPHERD: And I think so many people are going overboard with this plastic surgery and everything that they`re doing to their face. The show gets a new boss and he wants Paula back. She`s like, “I don`t want to be part of that crap on television and be part of the segment, but I will have my two cents heard.” That`s brilliant.

Blockbuster “American Idol” news breaking today. But I`ve got to say, no matter how this turns out, I don`t think it can be good for her image going forward.

Now, the “SHOWBIZ News Ticker” – more stories from the SHOWBIZ TONIGHT newsroom making news today.

VETRINI: No break. I did not have complications with childbirth or newborn rearing a lot of women do have. I didn`t see much down there, no offense, Enrique.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: That gives them the right to abuse other -

RAY: Yes.

VETRINI: Nothing has been charged.


ANDERSON: But there was an internal investigation.

Moving now to this, Enrique Iglesias bares his assets and it`s all caught on tape. So I don`t think it was for publicity. Then, there`s that super sexy Marc Ecko campaign featuring Lindsay in a ski mask showing too much cleavage. Was Levi and Bristol`s split planned or the real deal? This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN news and views.

Ryan and Tatum started settling their differences after Farrah Fawcett`s death. They make things up as they go along. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

Well, it`s no secret. Now, I talked to Nigel about a year ago when this whole kafuffle thing went down and Paula got fired.

RAY: Yes.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I feel that, like many other cases, they have misrepresented themselves. You know, hopefully she`ll be a little less loopy this coming season if she is there.

And SHOWBIZ TONIGHT can tell you today the war of words in the Whoopi- Michaele smackdown absolutely exploded.

ANNOUNCER: TV`s most provocative entertainment news show continues right now.

ANDERSON: They`re not going to be on each other`s Christmas card lists for sure.

ANDERSON: Welcome back to SHOWBIZ TONIGHT. Ken Baker, thanks. I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood.. Tanika, Naomi already doesn`t already have the best image given all of her public temper tantrums. Is these actresses and models – they get a lot of free stuff thrown at them. Julia Roberts` plastic surgery revelations. But an overwhelming 70 percent said it`s not.

And if so, she needs to go back to brazil and figure that out. This over alleged blood diamonds she may have gotten from a former dictator – this dictator accused of murdering tens of thousands of people.


ANDERSON: Did you see that? We`ll replay it for you. But expect Whoopi to curse you off if you`re going to make accusations like that, right?

Meaghan L. Now, we want to hear from you. But it was just a thing you try, like wearing orange for a while. And you just couldn`t translate that (INAUDIBLE).


ANNOUNCER: Mr. And they are teenage parents, unwed parents. And speaking of that, Julia also tells “Elle” magazine she won`t use Botox because her three young kids wouldn`t be able to read her facial expressions.

GOLDBERG: (INAUDIBLE) the White House please.


It`s of the former president of Liberia, Charles Taylor. SHOWBIZ TONIGHT is now live at 5:00 p.m. The real question is, how long can she keep it up?” She does look incredible.

ANDERSON: Wow. And they`re berating me with F this -

AREU: I just don`t think they`re that clever. Watch.

ANDERSON: Supermodel madness. I just feel like they`re just drama. writes, “They should never have let Paula go.”

Join the debate on Facebook. In a new interview today, he says he wants Paula Abdul back. She earned $25 million last year for modeling. Did you say I F-ing hit you?”


RAY: She is.


Labor does not hurt. Ereka, are you on team Whoopi or team Michaele?

All right. Colleen just phoned in to say that Gisele should stick to raising her own child.

Mary Hart tells SHOWBIZ TONIGHT that her decision was a hard one, but she`s ready to start the next chapter of her life.

ANDERSON: Salahi was appearing on “The View” along with her fellow “D.C. There`s some things we really just don`t need to know.

And Drew talking about being dirty after dark. No, no, no.

RAY: Of course.

TEXT: Home where Michael Jackson died now for sale, asking price: $29 million. I don`t think it`s something I could live my life with.”



And Donna McCall is arguably butch Patrick`s biggest fan ever. We will get to the bottom of this one in just a minute.


Marvet, you`re a publicist. She can`t.

ANDERSON: That is quite obvious. This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN news and views.

ANDERSON: Yes. Wait until you hear what Julia said in a new interview today about going under the knife.

ANDERSON: Yes, yes. I think it would have gone a really long way had she said, “I am very blessed.”



RAY: I just feel – you have to understand. There have been no criminal charges pressed against the Salahis. It was so well said. I`m just saying.

ANDERSON: California drama? As Katy Perry preps for her big wedding to Russell Brand, I hope she`s looking for a lawyer, too.

I would love to see Paula back so that I can feel like it`s giving me some of what I love – you know, the “Idol” that we know and love. It was top secret because cops in Miami threatened to arrest him for the stunt, something about breaking public nudity laws. You lose, you`ve got to pay up, right? Fair is fair. I only meant to be at `ET` for three years – suddenly, it`s almost 30. Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are kaput again. He`s accused of murdering tens of thousands of people in a bloody campaign, allegedly financed in part with blood diamonds.

JOY BEHAR, CO-HOST, “THE VIEW”: Oh, you say that now.

And Marianne H. Eddie Munster finds love.

And now, the “SHOWBIZ News Ticker” – more stories from the SHOWBIZ TONIGHT newsroom making news today.

ANNOUNCER: TV`s most provocative entertainment news show starts right now.

And brand-new reaction today to Bristol and Levi`s break-up. White what had happened. I mean, she`s not (INAUDIBLE).

ANDERSON: On the “Today” show this morning, Salahi denied accusing Whoopi of hitting her, but she confirmed a backstage blow-up.


ANDERSON: That`s true. They`re sick of this girl grabbing the spotlight over something so trivial.

Shocking reports today that the Beach Boys are threatening to slap a lawsuit on the “California Gurl.” Beach Boy reps allege Katy used their classic line “I wish they all could be California gurls,” in her new song, “California Gurls.”


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Serious allegations.

ANDERSON: But one thing is for certain. The housewives quickly started bickering on “The View.” And look closely at what happened next.

ANDERSON: As proof, Whoopi had her own Zapruder film moment, showing yesterday`s onstage brush with Salahi from another angle.

ANDERSON: That was the tone of almost all the calls that we got today. She probably absolutely didn`t know who it came from.

So we want to hear from you. Let`s hear both sides of their stories.

Right now, in our Facebook, already, the wall is overrun with comments today. And there were even more choicer words. It`s all in good clean fun. Whoopi Goldberg versus the censors. They connected. Good point. And two men were there and gave me a pouch and said, “A gift for you. It makes sense. You will be missed.

ANDERSON: Somebody lost their job. She needs to stand there and do what she does.

First, this, for her new fashion line that appeared on Bravo`s reality show “Double Exposure.” Then there`s German “GQ.” Lindsay in a bikini. I think it`s (EXPLETIVE DELETED) weird.”

MICHAELE SALAHI, CAST MEMBER, “REAL HOUSEWIVES OF D.C.”: That`s an insult that I have an eating disorder.

Our fans are speaking and they are outraged about Gisele saying there should be a law forcing mothers to breastfeed.

This is just a great story. And she is under a contract with CBS for her own dance show. On the stand today, Naomi said that she had no idea the diamonds were from him. Good to see you.

ANDERSON: Given the fact that she has not been charged with anything.

Whoopi Goldberg`s War; Naomi Campbell on the Witness Stand; Gisele Bundchen`s Breastfeeding Backlash; “American Idol`s” Boss Wants Paula Back; Julia Roberts` Plastic Surgery Confessions; Drew Barrymore`s Phone Sex Revelation; Enrique Iglesias in the Nude

MARTEL: It didn`t look like a true accosting. She strayed away from that and lives a pretty normal life. Naomi Campbell on the witness stand at a war crimes trial. The “Showbiz on Call” phone lines are open 24/7. Now, this – Mary Hart`s stunning decision. Therefore, for Sherri Shepherd to go off and say, you know, she should be put in jail, that`s reason for tears. What a great love story, right?

It`s not exactly naked waterskiing, but the shake-up at “American Idol” has been pretty shocking. All right. People just don`t want to let it go.

In the brand-new interview out today Julia tells “Elle” magazine absolutely not. So I think that there`s been a lot of strategic moves going on, on this topic with Lindsay.

And we can`t forget the brand-new “Maxim” cover of Lindsay in a bikini. Jennifer Hudson`s new look has really sparked a fired up debate on the SHOWBIZ TONIGHT Facebook wall.

ANDERSON: All right. Thirty percent say, yes, absolutely, it`s a publicity stunt. And I think he`s such a big fan of hers. Lou Taylor is someone who also came on as a business financial manager for Britney Spears when she went under conservatorship a couple years ago and is known as someone who`s an expert in the field of getting celebrities` financial houses in order
