'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Is Charlie Sheen winning or losing?

There’s no doubt about it – Charlie Sheen is one determined guy.

Since his hit CBS show “Two and a Half Men” has been canceled for the remainder of the season, Charlie’s gone low-budget. He’s doing “Sheen’s Korner” using a webcam. I’ve got to say though, Charlie’s TV production skills are pretty bad, and the reviews for "Korner" haven't been much better.

Aside from the initial questions about why Charlie didn’t spell corner with a "c" – and really, what does the "k" add? – here's what I want to know: Is this really the best idea for Charlie? I think “Sheen’s Korner” is a complete mess.

'Bachelor's' Ashley H.: Miscommunication to blame

For a few weeks, it seemed like Ashley Hebert would be one of the last two contestants fighting for Brad Womack's heart on "The Bachelor."  But last week, all seemed to go wrong between the two of them and by the end, the 26-year-old dental student was sent packing.

"There was a lot of miscommunication between Brad and I," Ashley explained. "I went into the show not really expecting to feel as strong as I did, and I think I kept my guard up."

Viewers saw Ashley's "fantasy date" with Brad devolve into both sides getting frustrated with each other over where to take their relationship.   Ashley admits that things went downhill once they reached the "fantasy suite."

"Ok, so chow Argentina. At airport.. So many delays," Lauper, whose terminal tunes included her 1983 classic "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," tweeted March 4. "Wound up being announced, wound up sing[ing] two songs for airport. A first for me. Crazy day."

Director: 'Transformers 2' was 'crap'

Moviegoers weren't the only ones disappointed with the 2009 "Transformers" sequel. Even the director admits the movie was a dud.

“We made some mistakes,” Michael Bay tells Empire magazine of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." “The real fault with ['Transformers 2'] is that it ran into a mystical world. When I look back at it, that was crap."

Bay adds that the robot plot may have been a bit rusty because it was a rush job.

Hello? Is it Lionel Richie you're looking for?

If you've been looking for Lionel Richie ever since the release of his 1984 hit "Hello," you're not alone.

New Yorkers have been stuck on the star lately thanks to a series of personal-ad-style signs that are popping up all over Brooklyn.

The signs feature a retro black-and-white photo of Richie along with the header "Hello?" and the caption "Is it me you're looking for?" At the bottom of the page are several tear-off strips, but instead of contact telephone numbers, each strip includes a lyric to "Hello."
