Trump receives backlash for 'stutterer' comment

It seems Donald Trump failed to see the humor in some of the jokes made about him at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday.

While he may have taken President Obama’s one-liners with stride, the tides turned when “SNL’s” Seth Meyers took the stage.

“Donald Trump has been saying that he’ll run for president as a Republican,” said Meyers, “which is surprising, since I just assumed he was running as a joke.” And that was only the beginning.

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Would a bin Laden movie be a blockbuster?

The death of Osama bin Laden is a triumph, but would the story about how the U.S. Navy SEALs carried out their brave mission make a great movie – perhaps even a blockbuster? Some people are saying that it wouldn’t, because we already know the ending.

I don’t think knowing how all this plays out would automatically turn the concept into a bad movie. The process of hunting down and killing OBL is so compelling. I think if done well, a movie about this could be a huge hit! So today, we are casting the “Osama bin Laden” movie. Who should play the Navy SEALs who brought Osama down?

The contenders: Jeremy Renner, Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg. Want to find out who I pick? You’ve got to watch "Showbiz Tonight" at 11 p.m. ET on HLN tonight to find out! But tell me here – who do you like? Are we missing any candidates? Post below.

Celebs weigh in on Osama bin Laden at Met Gala

It was a night of fashion at the Met's Costume Institute Gala Monday night in New York City, but a few stars took a moment to share their thoughts about the death of Osama bin Laden.

"I think it's fantastic," model Naomi Campbell told CNN. "President Obama has done an amazing job by keeping it quiet and coming out and saying this to us now."

"I'm very, very proud and I have huge respect for President Obama," she added. "I hope that this will make other people stop speaking badly about him... he doesn't have to prove anything to anyone anymore."

Ryan Seacrest developing music show for NBC

Move over, "American Idol" - Ryan Seacrest is branching out with a new music show for a rival network.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Seacrest is currently developing a music-themed series for NBC. While details are vague and it remains to be seen what role he'll play on the show, it is known that the project is not a traditional competition program.

“It doesn’t make a lot of sense to host a show competing with Idol,” Seacrest, whose current $15 million contract forbids him from appearing on another network until 2012, told the Hollywood Reporter in March.

“I think it’s possible [to be the face of another show in the future], but at this point I certainly have not even gone down that road because 'Idol' is in a great place, so I think we’re just enjoying that and we want to focus on that.”

‘Chuck’: What happens in 'Vecas'…

If last night is any indication of what we can expect as “Chuck” powers toward its season finale (it better just be a SEASON finale), then we’re in for an awesome ride.

It’s been a little while since we last saw the gang, so let's catch-up a bit: Chuck and Sarah’s wedding is approaching; Ellie is trying to figure out her dad’s research on the mysterious Agent X; Vivian Volkoff is intent on finding and killing Agent X; Ellie is lying to Chuck about what she’s doing; and Chuck is still lying to Ellie about not being a spy.

On last night's episode, Chuck and Sarah are getting ready to take off for their bachelor/bachelorette parties. Chuck and his friends are all looking forward to a weekend of debauchery in Las Vegas, courtesy of Devin, who is apparently the Vegas expert.

Miley Cyrus covers 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'

Miley Cyrus isn't done digging through the crates quite yet. Following her duet with Bret Michaels for her “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” cover, the former "Hannah Montana" star has tackled Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”

Cyrus, 18, performed the track during a concert in Ecuador last Friday. “I have a lot of fans come up and tell me that I inspire them and make them want to follow their dreams, and so for this tour I want to be able to do the music that inspired me and made me want to be here on this stage tonight,” she told the hyped audience.

“It’s hard being on the road because you miss your family back home,” she continued, “and this song is something I always sing with my little brother…so this song is also for him.”

And with that, the opening chords to the iconic track began and Cyrus launched into her rendition. Check the performance in the video below if you dare.
