It’s the event of the year! Chelsea Clinton is getting married and the “Showbiz Tonight” staff could not stop talking about it this morning.
We’re all in agreement that it’s great she’s getting hitched, but $15,000 on portable toilets? Half a million on flowers? By some estimates, the wedding could end up costing almost $3 million! She might be American royalty, but is this wedding getting over-the-top outrageous?
But here's another question that continues to linger in our minds: who will take over for Simon Cowell on “American Idol”? Today, we’re getting a lot of big hints!
A new report said Justin Timberlake and Elton John are in talks with show producers. But, the “Showbiz Tonight” staff is doubtful either of these superstars will strike a deal with “Idol,” especially since another report says Nigel Lythgoe is returning as Executive Producer of the show.
Our Executive Producer, Dave Levine, theorized that if Lythgoe is returning to “Idol” he could get rid of all the judges and start from scratch! What do you think? Let us know in our “Showbiz” poll: “American Idol”: Should they replace all the judges?
There is also incredible buzz today about Hulk Hogan’s ex-wife getting engaged to her 21-year-old boy toy! That paired with the news that Hulk Hogan is launching a career as an infomercial pitchman makes for an outrageous Tuesday on “Showbiz Tonight,” live at 5 p.m. ET on HLN.
And remember, we're still TV's most provocative entertainment news show seven days a week at 11p.m. ET/PT!
