Today in the "Showbiz Tonight" morning meeting, it was all about Paris Hilton.
The reality TV star/heiress has been banned from two Las Vegas properties as a result of her felony cocaine arrest, and now she's speaking out.
“These rumors going around are so ridiculous, untrue and cruel," Hilton tweeted. "I'm not going to even pay attention to them, because I know the truth."

Happy Monday! Everyone on the "Showbiz Tonight" staff is just exhausted after Sunday night's Emmys. What a show!
We all think Jimmy Fallon was a hit as the host, and we loved the fact that so many first-timers took home an award. That’s the good news from the weekend, but there's also some bad news, and it involves Paris Hilton. Apparently she was arrested on suspicion of cocaine possession in Las Vegas on Friday night.
She was riding in her boyfriend’s car on the Vegas strip when a policeman noticed what he suspected to be marijuana smoke coming from the car she was in. Then the officer reportedly found what appeared to be a controlled substance on Hilton, and tests showed that it was cocaine. So can Paris go to jail? "Showbiz Tonight’s" legal team is working on the case!

Bright and early this morning, "Showbiz Tonight" staffers were already debating Jennifer Aniston's latest new remarks that women don’t need a man to have a baby.
"Women are realizing it more and more, knowing that they don't have to settle with a man just to have that child," Aniston said.
She also said that being 41 and single shouldn't stop her from having a baby. "[W]hat is amazing is that we do have so many options these days, as opposed to our parents' days when you can't have children because you have waited too long," the actress said. So do you agree with Aniston that women don't need men to have a baby? We're going to debate this hot topic on "Showbiz Tonight" later today!

Happy Thursday everyone! The “Showbiz Tonight” staff was on fire this morning about the drama going down between Whoopi Goldberg and Michaele Salahi.
The star of “The Real Housewives of D.C.” was invited on with the rest of the cast members as guests of “The View” on Wednesday. Things got pretty heated up when the talk turned to the White House State Dinner that Salahi and her husband were accused of crashing. Apparently Goldberg was backstage and came out to tap Salahi on the shoulder so she would get back to talking about the White House, and a whole brouhaha ensued after the show was over!
But, I gotta tell you, another brouhaha broke out in the “Showbiz Tonight” staff meeting this morning! Here’s the question: Was Goldberg and the rest of the ladies of “The View” wrong for pressing Salahi? “Showbiz Tonight” Producer Kristyn Martin thinks that Salahi could very well be the next Heidi Montag! You do not want to miss this debate on our show later today.

It looks like Mel Gibson’s mess just became a whole lot messier.
The LA County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed to "Showbiz Tonight" that they are investigating the mother of Mel’s baby daughter, Oksana Grigorieva. The reports today say Grigorieva may have been trying to extort Mel for money and there may be some text messages that prove that theory.
Of course, everyone has a theory about what’s going on with those two and all the leaked tapes in which you hear Grigorieva and a man that sounds like Gibson. But I have to tell you, our loyal "Showbiz Tonight" viewers who voted on our question of the day about whether or not those tapes will backfire on Grigorieva surprised us this morning! A whopping 73 percent say they think the tapes will indeed backfire on Gibson's ex.
