Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Tori Spelling's weighty issue

There is a whole slew of big celebrity stories today that "Showbiz Tonight" is investigating.

First up, is TLC's Kate Gosselin shopping around for her own dating show? "Showbiz Tonight" is getting to the bottom of this new report and whether or not there is any truth to it, but I gotta ask, would a dating show featuring Kate be such a bad idea?

"Showbiz Tonight" will also be premiering a bombshell investigative report: Is Gaga the next Queen of Pop or just a provocative knock off of Madonna? They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but can you build a whole career on that premise?

For those who don't know, celebrities don't take kindly to being judged about their weight. "Showbiz Tonight" is all over this topic today with a new interview from Tori Spelling. Tori said she’s skinny because she’s had health issues and that it’s just as “hurtful” to be called “under-weight” as it is to be called “over-weight."

But she's not the only one speaking up: Jewel said her feelings were so hurt when she was called “the chubby Renee Zellweger” that she ended up bingeing on an entire cake!

Oprah, on the other hand, is having her cake and sharing it with her staff at "O" magazine! She just gifted each of her staff members with an iPad and $10,000 greens to celebrate the magazine’s 10th anniversary! I joked with our "Showbiz Tonight’s" Sr. Executive Producer Dave Levine in the morning meeting today when I said to him, “Dave, she stole your idea!” He chuckled, but sadly that was it. I felt like I was in that episode from "Seinfeld" – “No Soup for You!”

    I don't know what the big deal is with Tori's weight, I was a huge fan of 90210 and even back then she was super thin, just leave her alone already. She seems to be a good person, she has a beautiful family, who cares if she is thin, if she was any heavier, the press would be calling her fat!
