When Craig Ferguson wanted to take his "Late Late Show" on the road, (so the story goes, anyway) CBS told him he could only bring one other person with him, and it couldn't be shot on a set.
So Ferguson made lemons out of lemonade and went to Paris, France, with his all-time favorite guest, "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" actress Kristen Bell, as well as robotic sidekick "Geoff Peterson."
The result of the trip overseas has been airing all this week. So far, we've seen Ferguson and Bell tour the Eiffel Tower, eat with French action star Jean Reno, and walk the streets of Paris with comedian Eddie Izzard.
Today's news you might've missed:
Day two of the NBC Universal press tour showcased talent from USA, Oxygen, MSNBC and Bravo, including Oxygen’s “The Glee Project.”
The network’s reality show, a singing competition that was created to hold auditions for Fox’s “Glee,” brought the humor of the day. A journalist mentioned that she interviewed activist and humanitarian Gloria Steinem last week, and that Steinem told her she really likes “The Glee Project.”
The journalist then asked the young participants of the Oxygen show if they were aware of Steinem, and when no one said yes, the entire audience broke into laughter! At least they can sing right?
It looks like “Entourage’s” Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon) can’t catch break in real life either.
According to several reports, an MTV reality star is threatening to sue the team behind the hit HBO show, claiming they stole the nickname “Johnny Bananas” (the name of Drama’s cartoon show) from him without asking.
Former “Real World” roomie Johnny Devenanzio says he’s been using the name Johnny Bananas on various MTV programs and even has the moniker copyrighted.
TMZ reports that Devenanzio (or Bananas, if you're so inclined) hired an attorney who wrote to the shows’ producers, “If you do not cease and desist…you leave us little option but to seek judicial intervention.” FULL POST
Supermodel Linda Evangelista wants a staggering amount in child support from Salma Hayek’s billionaire husband, and alleges that he has yet to provide support.
According to reports, Evangelista needs the mega-amounts of cash to cover things like security and drivers ($175,000 a year), and $80,000 for a full-time nanny – so she can maintain her model image, hitting the gym and making her beauty appointments!
I’m not sure how Evangelista arrived at the $46,000 per month figure, but the guy’s extraordinarily wealthy and if he has in fact been a deadbeat dad, I don’t see anything wrong in her going for it. Remember, if you don’t ask, you don’t get and it’s just the starting point in what will inevitably be a major negotiation.
What do you think? Has Linda gone too far? Or does she – and her son – deserve every penny? Post below – and watch "Showbiz Tonight" today, exclusively at 11 p.m. ET/PT for more on this heated debate.
In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of September 11, executive producer Steven Spielberg, DreamWorks Television, Discovery Channel and Science Channel will present a special television event.
"Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero" focuses on the effort to build the new, 104-story One World Trade Center.
According to a press release, the project "celebrates the grit, the drive and the audacious imagination of a wide array of builders, planners and dreamers bonded in grief but united in purpose." FULL POST
