Lil Wayne on life behind bars

A still-locked up Lil Wayne recently called in to Funkmaster Flex's radio show, and talked about his plans for future music and life behind bars – which, apparently, includes making a lot of phone calls.

In addition to trying to call his kids on a daily basis – “and you know I got a lot of kids to call,” Wayne joked – he keeps in touch with people from his Young Money crew.

“I actually call [Drake] three or four times a week, but he only picks up for me once a week,” Wayne admitted. And when it comes to Nicki Minaj, he joked, “That being my future wife, we talk every night.”

Nick Cannon sings the praises of Mariah's wifely skills

Apparently Mariah Carey keeps it hot for Nick Cannon…in the kitchen.

During a celebrity guest blogging stint over at GlobalGrind.com, the actor/rapper/DJ says that his songbird wifey always makes breakfast for him.

“People can't imagine Mariah cooking but no matter what time of day it is when I come home she always has food prepared for me, usually steak and eggs or steak and baked potatoes,” he writes. “I’m a carnivore so I’m always eating steak. She’s amazing.”

Cannon also sings the praises of marital partnership, saying that marriage “allows me to focus more.”

And his wife is cute to boot, Cannon writes. “She is the most beautiful person in the world, inside and out. Someone like her is truly just an angel.”

All together now: Awwwwwwwww!

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Could Abdul come back to 'Idol'?

Happy Thursday everyone! The “Showbiz Tonight” staff was on fire this morning about the drama going down between Whoopi Goldberg and Michaele Salahi.

The star of “The Real Housewives of D.C.” was invited on with the rest of the cast members as guests of “The View” on Wednesday. Things got pretty heated up when the talk turned to the White House State Dinner that Salahi and her husband were accused of crashing. Apparently Goldberg was backstage and came out to tap Salahi on the shoulder so she would get back to talking about the White House, and a whole brouhaha ensued after the show was over!

But, I gotta tell you, another brouhaha broke out in the “Showbiz Tonight” staff meeting this morning! Here’s the question: Was Goldberg and the rest of the ladies of “The View” wrong for pressing Salahi? “Showbiz Tonight” Producer Kristyn Martin thinks that Salahi could very well be the next Heidi Montag! You do not want to miss this debate on our show later today.

Eminem opens up on Brittany Murphy's death

In the 15th anniversary issue of Vibe magazine, Eminem admits that he's still haunted by the death of his "8 Mile" co-star - and former flame - Brittany Murphy.

"It was crazy...It's crazy because at one point we were very close and she was a really good person," the rapper says of Murphy, who died December 20 at age 32 from pneumonia compounded by anemia and prescription and over-the-counter drugs.

"It's crazy when you see things, not just with her but just all these things that are happening in Hollywood with people in music, with people in acting," he said. "Famous people are overdosing at alarming rates and that almost sounded like a commercial. Wow."

Whoopi Goldberg had choice words for Salahis

It looks like one woman’s "light touch" is enough to make another woman cry, and that seems to be what happened on "The View" Wednesday.

Things got heated on ABC's daytime show – although, at this point, that may go without saying – when Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd sat down with the “Real Housewives of Washington D.C.” to chat about the new season.

As the conversation veered towards a disagreement between Michaele Salahi and another “Housewife,” Goldberg exited backstage, touched Salahi on what appears to be her back from the video (judge for yourself by watching the clip here), and, according to Goldberg's recap of the events Thursday, said, “can you get back the White House please?”
