“30 Rock” star Tracy Morgan has been on an apology tour since his homophobic rant at his Nashville concert on June 3rd.
Today he went back to Nashville to officially apologize alongside a spokesperson from GLAAD and Kevin Rogers, the man who attended that concert and broke the news about Tracy’s comments.
Tonight, we have an exclusive "Showbiz Tonight" newsmaker interview where we ask Kevin Rogers if he thinks Tracy’s apology today was enough. What do you think? Post below.
We're also going to be talking about the race to replace Regis Philbin! In a new report, three people have been named as frontrunners to replace Regis on “Live with Regis and Kelly": Kelly Ripa’s husband Mark Consuelos, Ryan Seacrest and Andy Cohen.
I really like Mark for the job. He’s always terrific when he fills in, you certainly can’t beat the chemistry between Mark and his wife and he just happens to be a nice guy. I’d love to see him get the gig.
Who do you think is the best choice to take Regis’ place? Let me know below and call me at "Showbiz on Call" –888-SBT-BUZZ.
Also, "Showbiz Tonight’s" Jill Simonian has a revealing "Showbiz" newsmaker interview with Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks about their new film “Larry Crowne.” One of the questions Jill is asking Julia and Tom: Would they still be actors if they had to do it all over again?
