'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Would MJ have approved of 'Oprah' interview?

Oprah Winfrey just sat down with Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, for a big exclusive interview that is airing today. But that's not even the biggest headline!

Michael’s three kids also sat down with Oprah and revealed brand new details about their father, who fiercely protected his kids’ identities. Of course the first thing that came to mind was if Michael would have approved or not.

I tend to doubt it. We never got to see much of them at all until after he died, so I can only presume that he would have continued to shield them from the public, for better or worse.

A trashy 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" may have moved to a new night, but they are still the site of the same tomfoolery.

Sunday night’s episode was titled the “Trashed Collection,” but honestly it could have been titled “More Delusions.”

First there was Kim’s disappointment with the new track Kandi worked up for her, “The Ring Didn't Mean a Thing.” Now I’m not sure, but I think Kim was more upset with the fact that Kandi is working with Sheree’s hair stylist Lawrence who, for the record, can actually sing.

Will Hugh Jackman host the Oscars again?

Don't expect to see Hugh Jackman giving a repeat performance as host of the Oscars. The actor, who earned both raves and good ratings for his Academy Awards gig two years ago, has turned down an offer to do another turn in 2011, according to Deadline.com.

The site is reporting that the 42-year-old star is skipping the prestigious February 27 ceremony because he will be busy filming the superhero sequel "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." The movie, which will be directed by Darren Aronofsky, is set to begin shooting in late February or early March.

"[Aronofsky’s] going to make it fantastic," Jackman told New York magazine's Vulture. "There’s going to be some meat on the bones. There will be something to think about as you leave the theater, for sure.”

Billy Ray Cyrus to host TLC's 'Homecoming'

Despite being in the midst of a divorce, Billy Ray Cyrus hasn't forgotten the importance of family. The 49-year-old singer is making that clear as host of TLC's upcoming "Homecoming," a reality series that will chronicle the surprise reunions of members of the military with their loved ones.

"'Homecoming' extends TLC’s focus on authentic and relatable life experiences," says Eileen O'Neill, president and general manager of TLC. "We look forward to honoring our service men and women, and celebrating in the unmatched moment when they are reunited with their families."

TLC has ordered three hour-long episodes of the heartwarming series, which was inspired by online and local-news segments in which soldiers surprise their friends and family back home.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the premiere date for "Homecoming" has not yet been set.

Harrison Ford still open to another 'Indiana Jones'

Over the summer, we reported that 2008's "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" may not be the end of the franchise's story, and Harrison Ford told CNN that he'd be on board to don that famous hat once again.

While chatting before the premiere of his new movie, "Morning Glory," Ford said, "I’d be happy to do another one if we could all agree on it and it was something that I thought was going to work."

One reason why it took nearly 20 years to make a fourth movie is because it's all a matter of the right script and timing, and Ford added that early plans for a fifth are still in the works.
