Part of the proceeds went to benefit Blige’s charity, The Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now, Inc. (FFAWN).

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Listol calls it quits

Quite a debate erupted this morning in the "Showbiz Tonight" meeting over the latest chapter in the ongoing Bristol Palin – Levi Johnston saga. Just when we thought those two lovebirds would reunite and turn into Hollywood’s next power couple – drama prevailed!

Palin called People Magazine sobbing that Johnston may have gotten another girl pregnant and participated in a music video that made fun of her family. The wedding is off!

Johnston has gone back to the role of enemy No. 1 in the Palin family. But the debate rages on – is this whole bizarre romance just a big publicity stunt? We’re debating it today on "Showbiz Tonight!"

'The Colony' lights up with purified pig fat

“The Colony’s” second episode of the new season opened two hours after last week's attack, and the colonists decided that they need to step up their security.

On their fourth day in the encampment, the participants woke up exhausted, scarred and feeling dirty. They began building window blockades and defense screens to deter attackers, but the power tools they’d found earlier were running low on juice, meaning they didn’t have the proper equipment, or electricity, to heighten security.

After a lot of whining about the loss of battery power in the tools they’re lucky to even have, the colonists decided they needed to make a generator.

Gisele Bundchen: I'm not here to judge

Judging by Marquee reader reaction, it seems supermodel Gisele Bundchen might have made a boob of herself when she told Harper's Bazaar U.K. that breast-feeding should be mandatory for all new moms.

"There should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months," she said. "Are you going to give chemical food to your child, when they are so little?"

Well, yes, according to an overwhelming number of Marquee readers.

Jennifer Lopez has no regrets

Jennifer Lopez has lived through everything from dress scandals to the reviews for “Gigli,” but she doesn’t regret a minute of it.

Of course, as she told Glamour magazine in their September issue, she’s had some "ups and downs" like everyone else, including "super highs and some really low lows.” But she added, “I’ve been so blessed that I could never say, ‘I wish this didn’t happen.’ It’s part of who I am. There’s nothing in my life that’s so ‘ugh.’"

Of course, there are some memories that may make her cringe, “but not where I’m worried about [Max and Emme] finding out,” she said. “I’ll tell them myself. No secrets from them.”

'SYTYCD's' Legacy, tWitch hit the big screen

Stephen "tWitch" Boss is one of the most popular dancers in the history of Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance," so, naturally, the producers of “Step Up 3-D” are giving him the chance to tackle his first speaking role.

At the same time, “SYTYCD” breakout star Jonathan "Legacy" Perez was also working on “Step Up 3-D,” collaborating with the choreographers to develop what would become the first 3-D dance movie ever, opening in theaters Friday.

"We worked on the process of how to cater to 3-D cameras," he said. "If you spin a certain way the camera loses the 3-D effect as opposed to going towards the camera or going away at an angle. The subtle movements are what make the movie intense, like when you're dodging legs in the audience while wearing the glasses."
