Suffice it to say the "Showbiz Tonight" staff is in a state of shock today!
Dina Lohan revealed explosive new details to “Today” host Matt Lauer about daughter Lindsay’s time in jail and in rehab, the role she plays in Lindsay’s life and the new book and movie she’s working on.
The overwhelming consensus is basically "poor Lindsay." As the elder Lohan rather unsuccessfully tried to refute the facts about Lindsay’s long list of troubles with drugs and the law, what emerged is a strong sense of denial on her part.
On today’s show we will examine Lohan's eye-opening interview. Plus, we will have the latest on the reports that Lindsay is leaving her court-mandated 90-day stint in rehab early.
As "things Jennifer Aniston said" week continues, we've learned that the actress has responded to Bill O’Reilly slamming her single motherhood comment. Not that we’re keeping score or anything, but we think Jennifer Aniston is pulling ahead in this he said, she said showdown.
Aniston is also quite clever - we love how she linked O’Reilly to Prince Charming… clearly she's learned a thing or two from starring in all those romantic comedies.
And as if sparring with Jennifer Aniston wasn’t enough, Bill O’Reilly just launched another fight - this time with Oprah Winfrey and Rosie O'Donnell over O'Donnell's new show on Winfrey's OWN network. We’re asking in our "Showbiz" poll if O'Donnell's new show is destined to be a hit… or could it flop big time?
The debate was so spirited during the morning meeting, we decided to take this hot topic to our Facebook wall and let the "Showbiz Tonight" fans weigh in.
The "Showbiz Tonight" morning meeting was also really sweet today, thanks to our esteemed, rock ‘em, sock ‘em interns Laura, Kimmie, and Amanda! Thanks for the Munchkins, guys!
Watch "Showbiz Tonight" live at 5 p.m. today. And remember, we’re still TV’s most provocative entertainment news show seven days a week at 11 p.m. ET/PT!
