Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Gibson's mess gets messier

It looks like Mel Gibson’s mess just became a whole lot messier.

The LA County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed to "Showbiz Tonight" that they are investigating the mother of Mel’s baby daughter, Oksana Grigorieva. The reports today say Grigorieva may have been trying to extort Mel for money and there may be some text messages that prove that theory.

Of course, everyone has a theory about what’s going on with those two and all the leaked tapes in which you hear Grigorieva and a man that sounds like Gibson. But I have to tell you, our loyal "Showbiz Tonight" viewers who voted on our question of the day about whether or not those tapes will backfire on Grigorieva surprised us this morning! A whopping 73 percent say they think the tapes will indeed backfire on Gibson's ex.

Dropping like flies on 'SYTYCD'

Another injury?!?!

After two stellar performances last week, Billy Bell became the latest dancer to fall victim to the season seven curse. The contemporary dancer injured his knee and wasn’t able to perform, which (as we know all too well by now) means he’ll automatically wind up in the bottom three on Thursday night’s results show.

At least Nigel Lythgoe made a point to address the issue, saying there haven’t been this many injuries in one season since the show began six years ago. He went on to say they’re looking into the problem – finally!

Pick your poison on 'Top Chef'

Is this “Top Chef” or “Survivor”? It seems to be the latter, because strategy is the most talked about ingredient in any dish from the Washington, D.C. kitchen this year.

With an episode dubbed “The Cold War,” things went from bad to worse as the chefs turned into judges and voted to put two of their own on the chopping block.

But let’s back up and start with the Quickfire, which challenged the chefs to make a dish from unconventional ingredients. And guess what was back to help: the knife block!

Brad Pitt joins 'World War Z'

Let the zombie takeover continue.

The adaptation of Max Brooks' "World War Z," a novel recounting a zombie apocalypse from the first-hand accounts of those who survived it, is moving forward, now with Brad Pitt officially attached to the vehicle, MTV reports.

Pitt’s Plan B production company wrestled the rights to the project away from Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way back in 2007, and while it was rumored that Pitt would play the lead, Brooks didn’t hear of Pitt's attachment until this year's preview night at Comic-Con.

“Quantum of Solace” director Marc Forster is still supposed to direct, and a revision of the script has been penned by "Lions for Lambs" writer/producer Matthew Michael Carnahan. The movie is aiming for a summer 2012 release.
