Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Will Lindsay go nude?

The "Showbiz Tonight" team was at it again this morning in our morning meeting. So many explosive new entertainment stories today, and so little time! Here are some of the hot new topics:

Lindsay Lohan is reportedly planning to pose nude *with* her alcohol monitoring anklet on in order to hock her new line of purses. Really Lindsay? What’s up with this latest bout of celebrities getting down and dirty just to get a little attention? "Showbiz Tonight" will have a lineup of top experts to break it down for us.

And if you haven’t already seen Miley’s eyebrow-raising outfit at a Canadian awards show, suffice it to say that it's pretty outrageous. She wore a black netted outfit reminiscent of Cher circa the 1986 Oscars, but the thing is, Miley is only 17-years-old.

Even more disturbing, some people seem to be cashing in on her behavior. Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton has posted another racy photo on his website of Cyrus mid-step in a dance move with her skimpy costume revealing much more than she intended.

Is Perez totally out of line for posting this? Is he breaking the law by posting exploitative photos of a minor? "Showbiz Tonight" producer Jenny D’Attoma was totally disgusted by Perez saying this morning, “He needs to be charged with something.” What do you think?

It’s also raising some big questions today about the 17-year-old's path to stardom: Is she following in the footsteps of Britney Spears? As "Showbiz Tonight" producer Sandra Lee pointed out this morning, “Britney went from the Mickey Mouse club to international sex symbol the minute she exposed her midriff.” It was a no-holds-barred, throwdown meeting with a room divided over the big burning question today: Does Miley Cyrus have to sex up her image to be successful?

But the teen sensation isn’t the only star behaving badly today. Jerry Seinfeld came out swinging against Lady Gaga because of her foul play at a Mets game. Which makes the other big question of the day, "is Lady Gaga tarnishing a stellar brand with her latest bouts of acting out at baseball games?"

Also on the lineup for tonight: Helen Mirren - also known as 65 and fab - posed topless for New York Magazine. As "Showbiz Tonight" Sr. Broadcast Producer Aileen Martinez Carper put it, “have you ever seen her in a bathing suit? She looks better than most 20-year-olds.”

Plus, new revelations today about Gary Coleman’s reported secret pre-death restraining order against his ex-wife. Many of us on the "Showbiz Tonight" team found the report very disturbing.

What do you think about any of these stories? Post here and send us your Showbiz iReport videos. We’ll try to work some of your comments into the show…

Watch Showbiz Tonight live at 5pm today. And remember, we’re still TV’s most provocative entertainment news show seven days a week at 11pm ET/PT!

    The girl has a smoking body when she's not skinny as a rail. I would think she's going to get naked for the Linda Lovelace flick and if it's true to story she'll spend a lot of time going down as well. Is that rude? Sorry, but her parents lack of care, love and understanding is the really rude part of this story, you know, except for the free Carvel Ice Cream, I think they should have given her mommy that. I hate to bum out all the haters, but I've seen her work on set and the girl can act.

    Ugh there was some guy on Olbermann last night weighing in on the Lady Gaga thing, saying it's inappropriate and what not for her to show up with no pants on, and then 2 minutes later saying "Though, the Yankees were probably like "woohoo" because they've lost a few games in a row. Go out there and work those glorious breasts of yours, gaga" What a pig. Seriously.

    ewww. I'm twice her age and she looks older than I do. She needs to concentrate on getting her health, youth and values back. Pretty pathetic excuse for a human being when the mere mention of your name illicits expressions of scorn and derision from the world.

    Anyone want to talk about Gary Coleman? I'd pay for those nude pictures, at least he is of legal age.

  6. Yeah I Said it

    She looks like a young :"Chyna" the female wrestler. She is going to age poorly, better get her $$ now while she can.

    what it comes down to is that lindsay needs to pull a robert downey jr. she needs to take a year or two to pull her life together without attempting to be in the spotlight at all. then she needs to take some small tv spots or indie movie roles, and then maybe – juuuuust maybe – she can get her film career back. she really had promise as a comic actress. but if she's not willing to commit to doing what it takes like rdj was, it isn't going to happen.

  9. Hammer Time for Lindsay

    It is all that she has left (posing nude, that is). No one wants to cast her in a movie. No directors want to work with her, and this is just another desperate attempt to remain in the spotlight. So sad. When I saw her in Mean Girls six years ago, I thought she had talent and lots of potential. Unfortunately, she has thrown it all away.

      However, who would want to?

    Who enables her? We do, we buy their things, whomever is behind it all – is not amoral compass, its all about numbers in money, pictures, songs, etc. They are brilliant – one picture means hundreds of dollars for them including those who are bashed for it ie. Perez, again we enable and pay their bills – me doing thins is part of it. Why coplain? You do a 9-5 they do a 24/7, they just get paid more, bittersweet?

    Might have been nice to see her a while back before she started ridin' the crunk-n-drunk wagon on a daily basis. Don't really care to see Lindsay now. As far as Miley is concerned, too young and not that pretty either.
