'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Which side of the Grammer split are you on?

The war of words is on! Camille and Kelsey Grammer are dropping dramatic details about their bitter divorce battle. Kelsey just revealed he is ready to remarry while Camille has dropped some stunning, bombshell new revelations to me about life with Kelsey.

A ton of people have a lot to say about Camille Grammer, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star. People see the homes, the fights with Kyle and have concluded that Camille is not so nice. Well I’m here to tell you I think Camille is just the opposite, and I think she got blindsided by Kelsey! So whose side are you on: Kelsey’s or Camille’s? Post your thoughts here!

Oh I have one more Camille nugget for you! During my sit down interview with Camille, she took off one of her hoop earrings. Camille left the earring on the set! I told the "Showbiz Tonight" staff and they said: eBay! Just kidding, Camille. Your earring is in the mail!

W magazine names the year's best performances

Awards season is ready to launch – the Golden Globes will air this Sunday – and in W magazine’s February issue, on newsstands January 25, some of the most talked about performances are highlighted.

We’re willing to bet you can guess the stars included in the round-up off the top of your head: Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis in “Black Swan”; Nicole Kidman in “Rabbit Hole”; Colin Firth in “The King’s Speech”; and all three of “The Social Network’s” stars, Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake and Andrew Garfield, to name a few.

See the entire "Best Performances" portfolio at W

The portfolio, W says, is an attempt to recognize actors whose performances stood head and shoulders above the rest, to “acknowledge and salute the work, to acknowledge and thank the actors for telling the truth—even when the truth was fiction.”

Above you’ll see a few of the famous faces that offered what W considers to be the top performances of the past year, along with statements on their own relationship to and understanding of great cinema. For more, visit WMagazine.com.

Jane Lynch: World's not ready for gay actors as romantic leads

There could be another reason Coach Sue planned to marry herself on an earlier episode of "Glee" this season: Openly gay actress Jane Lynch believes the world just isn't ready to see homosexual actors playing a romantic lead.

Most of the world is straight, Lynch tells After Elton, and "what studios want is for people to project their hopes and their dreams for romance onto these people. And I think that’s what stops them from casting gay people… It’s everybody looking at the bottom line."

While actor Rupert Everett claims his career tanked after he came out, 50-year-old Lynch, who wed psychologist Lara Embry last Memorial Day, believes she hasn't lost work because of her sexuality.

"I’ve never been turned down for a role because I’m gay," she says. "I’m a character actor, and that’s probably why. I don’t find Hollywood, in my own experience, to be homophobic. Have I ever been turned down? I don’t know because you never know when you don’t get something or why you didn’t get it. But I do think the straight folks will continue to play the straight roles."

Round 2 on 'Jersey Shore'

Is it just me, or was round two not nearly as entertaining as JWoww and Sammi’s Miami altercation?

Dear “Jersey Shore”: The fighting is getting old. I speak for viewers everywhere when I say, please stick to mixing drinks and fist pumping. But I digress...

Despite a few shining moments, like when she decided to climb into her suitcase or randomly hide behind a bush at the club, Snooki didn’t reach her full potential this week. Could it be that her new sidekick is holding her back? And on that note…

Paris Hilton to get real in new Oxygen series

As her aunts Kim and Kyle Richards wrap up season one of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," Paris Hilton is divulging details about her Oxygen network docu-series,"The World According to Paris."

"'On 'The Simple Life,' I was playing a character I kind of invented," the heiress tells the Hollywood Reporter of the 2003-2007 show in which she and pal Nicole Richie left their mansions behind and roughed it with everyday folk.

"I think people assume that's really how I am in real life," she says. "But when I'm with my friends and my family is when I feel most comfortable and myself. In the show, it really shows the real Paris."
