'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Should LiLo dance 'With the Stars'?

Hey, it’s Brooke! So Lindsay’s trying to rehab her life, but what if she rehabbed her career by going on one of the most popular shows on TV?!

Hey, "Dancing With the Stars" made Kate Gosselin a huge star and made Bristol Palin a household name! I’m thinking this could be a great move for Lindsay but I’m not sure she’d ever do it. What do you think? Tell me by posting your comments here.

Speaking of Kate Gosselin, she’s revealing brand new details about reports that two of her kids got kicked out of school. Plus: Are she and her ex-husband, Jon, still at war?

Nicki Minaj reacts to Regis Philbin getting grabby

Regis Philbin took a hands-on approach to interviewing hip-hop sensation Nicki Minaj on Monday's edition of "LIVE! With Regis and Kelly."

Following her performance of "Right Thru Me," the flamboyant rapper/singer joined Philbin and his co-host Kelly Ripa for a chat. That's when 79-year-old Philbin got a little gropey.

"I love the way you dress. This looks like you've got a little strap around you there," he said of Minaj's frock, running his hand across the front hem before patting the 25-year-old on the bottom.

What should we call Taylor Swift and Jake G.?

What? Don't act like this moment wasn't coming.

From the minute word spread that the two were reportedly getting cozy - at least twice over coffee - the names have been tumbling out. Now that photos of the wide-awake pair are being spotted - Us Weekly's dropped a few into this week's issue - we think it's time to officially give them a name.

Plus, nothing says "we're a couple! Reportedly!" like a nickname. Let us know what you think we should be calling this duo, and if you have more suggestions, leave 'em in the comments.

'Glee' takes it back to its first love

Maybe it was just me, but I feel like “Glee” was digging deep on Tuesday night.

The episode was all about things being slightly off, and the glee club trying to get back to where they once were - sort of like trying to rediscover the glee in “Glee.” (I’ve felt like that a bit this season. There have been some episodes that I loved, loved, loved, while others not so much.)

It seemed like the “Glee” kids were also feeling a little disjointed - no one could stand Rachel, and I have to agree. That chick has become super annoying.

Natalie Portman trained like a pro for 'Black Swan'

Ask any dancer – and now, Natalie Portman, who portrays one in the ballet thriller “Black Swan” - and they'll tell you: Getting in shape to perform those graceful moves isn’t easy.

Page Six Magazine reveals that Portman trained rigorously for a year with former City Ballet dancer Mary Helen Bowers to get in shape for the role. The process was intensive even for the slender actress, who danced ballet as a child.

“We worked five days a week doing ballet classes and exercises for toning to change her body,” Bowers said.

“About six months before filming began, we started with five hours a day, six days a week training, minimum,” Bowers added. “The idea was that, for her to play the part of a professional ballerina, she was going to have to train like one. They typically dance 10 to 12 hours a day, five days a week, so we tried to get her as close to that as possible.”

Margaret Cho: Bristol was forced to do 'Dancing'

Margaret Cho has nothing against Bristol Palin. Really.

That said, the 41-year-old comedian recently dished about her "Dancing With the Stars" rival, claiming Bristol's mother, Sarah Palin, forced her to do the show so the public would forget Bristol's notoriety as a teen mom and the former governor of Alaska would gain fans if she runs for president in 2012.

"I heard from someone who really should know (really should seriously know the dirt really really) that the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it," Cho wrote on her blog on November 29.
