'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Paula and Simon, together again

Former “American Idol” judge Simon Cowell has made it official! He and Paula Abdul are reuniting. Simon just hired his fellow ex-“Idol” judge for his Fox show, “X Factor.”

The show, no doubt, would have been poised for success without her, but hiring Paula really steps it up. And I think it’s great for her. I know Paula really wanted to make it on her own (her CBS show “Live To Dance” tanked), but America loves her in this role and the chemistry with Simon, strange as it can be, is lightning in a bottle.

So what do you think? Are you glad Simon and Paula are back together? Post below.

Chaz Bono: I don't doubt I was born this way

Editor's Note: Piers Morgan talks with Chaz Bono about his transformation and what it was like growing up with superstar parents on “Piers Morgan Tonight” at 9 ET Thursday night on CNN.

Last year, Chaz Bono was legally granted a name and gender change, and now the 42-year-old is opening up on what he calls the "slow process" toward living his true identity and revealing it to the world.

Knowing that as the child of Cher and the late Sonny Bono he didn’t exactly have a ton of privacy, Chaz opted to be upfront about his transition from female to male, he told Oprah Winfrey on her show Monday. He chronicles his change in the book “Transition: The Story of How I Became a Man” and in a documentary set to premiere on OWN Tuesday night.

“When I was really little it was clear to me that I felt like a boy. In puberty, I felt like my body was betraying me,” Chaz told Winfrey. “I went from a straight up-and-down little kid to a very curvaceous woman.”
