'Showbiz Tonight': Could Paula's new show take down 'Idol?'

'Showbiz Tonight': Could Paula's new show take down 'Idol?'

A ferocious debate broke out today about whether or not Denise Richards should be thanking her ex Charlie Sheen for helping her promote her new TV gig on Spike TV.

While Denise did not talk about what happened on that night in Sheen's hotel suite, she did march on with all those interviews. Is this theory mean spirited? You will have to check out our debate later on in the show.

Today we are hearing that Paula Abdul’s new dance show, “Live to Dance,” may go head-to-head with “American Idol.” A lot of people are still furious that Paula is off “Idol.” And remember, “Idol’s” ratings were down about 10 percent last season. (Do you even remember who won? It was Lee DeWyze… you are probably scratching your head saying, “Lee DeWho?”)

So do you think Paula’s show could take down the big beast that is “American Idol?" Which show would you rather watch? Paula’s new show, or “Idol?"

“Shape” magazine reportedly issued a big fat apology to their readers after they featured LeAnne Rimes on their cover.

Calling it “a terrible mistake”, the magazine's editor-in-chief said she was sorry they featured the so-called homewrecker on their cover. Rimes - who has admitted to cheating on ex-husband Dean Sheremet with then-married "CSI" hunk Eddie Cibrian - opened up in the magazine about how her workouts saved her.

"Showbiz Tonight" is guessing LeAnne Rimes can’t be too happy. So is Shape's apology a big slap in the face to LeAnne?! You'll have to tune in to hear our fired up debate.

Shape editor says apology for LeAnn Rimes cover taken out of context

Shape magazine readers were fit to be tied when country singer LeAnn Rimes appeared on the October cover, and while the magazine's editor-in-chief did send an apology to some readers who wrote in about the cover story, she says her words have been taken out of context.

The issue, which showed 28-year-old Rimes posing in a red bikini, included an interview in which she admitted cheating on ex-husband Dean Sheremet with current beau Eddie Cibrian.

"My relationship with Dean was great, but ultimately it wasn't a fulfilling marriage for either of us," she said. "I understand why people are disappointed in me, especially since I grew up as America's sweetheart."
