James Brolin: Paps are 'like rats'

Note to celebs: James Brolin doesn’t need to see your underpants.

The actor and husband of Barbra Streisand spoke to Parade.com about how celebrity has changed since he entered the industry.

“I think we've got so much communication today, we've seen the underbelly of everything,” he said. “We've seen everybody's underpants.”

No charges for 'Urkel' in alleged domestic violence dispute

Jaleel White, the actor likely best known for portraying the nerdy Steve Urkel on ABC's "Family Matters," has cleared his name.

After reports surfaced last week that White had been involved in a domestic dispute with the mother of his child, the L.A. City Attorney’s Office has told CNN that while police did take a report, there wasn't enough for the City Attorney's Office to "take a look."

As a result, the City Attorney's Office doesn't anticipate taking any action.

Old Spice guy and Alyssa Milano get flirty on Twitter

If you haven’t figured it out yet, one of the best way to get a shirtless video response from Isaiah Mustafa – who, for better or worse, is now known as the “Old Spice guy” – is to address him on Twitter.

And he’s not just paying attention to the regular folk who can’t get close to him now that he’s Emmy-nominated and all – Mustafa has also gotten into a flirty back-and-forth with actress Alyssa Milano.

After Milano tweeted, “GENIUS. Shirtless Old Spice guy replies on Twitter w/ hilarious personalized videos,” noting that her husband is aware that she has a crush on Mustafa – and has taken to wearing Old Spice deodorant – the actor responded wearing his now trademark towel in the bathroom we now all know and love.

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Has the alleged Gibson audio been altered?

When the "Showbiz Tonight" staff meeting ended this morning and we returned to our desks, nearly everyone apprehensively put on headphones to get another explosive earful of audio that purportedly captures Mel Gibson in a tirade. On the new tapes out today, the alleged voice of Gibson claims the actor/director's ex, Oksana Grigorieva, wiped out his bank account!

The ranting voice on the tapes blamed the woman for getting him into so much financial trouble that he had to sell his box seats for the Lakers. The man’s voice complained, “I don’t have any [expletive] money!” and “you know what kind of trouble I’m in.” The man accuses the woman of “gouging” him, claiming he spent $5 million on her.

The tapes keep on coming and the rage they exhibit continues to be disturbing, but the question for us on  “Showbiz Tonight” is whether or not the tapes have been tampered with.

So, what should we start calling these two?

Levi Johnston’s sister, Mercede, has taken to her blog to let us know her thoughts on Levi's surprise engagement to his baby’s mother, Bristol.

Upon waking up yesterday, Mercede writes that she was greeted with “a beautiful picture of Levi, Bristol, and Tripp on the cover of Us Weekly.” But, she adds, “Not exactly the image I wanted to come face to face with when I first opened my eyes.

This post arrived on the heels of yet even more details surrounding the engagement, which revealed that Levi proposed with rose petals in the shape of a heart on Bristol's bed. (Swoon?)

‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ episode earns record ratings

You would think another table was flipped.

Many, many people tuned in to Monday night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” pulling in record ratings for the network that launched the five-city reality franchise.

This episode featured a showdown (once again) between Teresa and Danielle. Danielle was called a [expletive], Teresa's home was said to be in foreclosure, a chase ensued, heels were broken and then, lo and behold, Danielle’s hair was pulled (but, strangely, not by Teresa - Ashley jumped in and did it for her.)
