Behind the Scenes of 'Showbiz Tonight': Is Mariah really pregnant?

A big debate at the morning meeting today: There’s a new tape out of the disturbing 911 call made after Gary Coleman’s deadly accident, and we debated whether or not to put it on the show tonight. But it raises new questions about the “Diff’rent Strokes” star’s death, so…we're going with it.

Over to some happier news we are looking into: We’re making calls right now to check into whether or not Mariah Carey is pregnant. Why, you ask? Because Mimi’s hubby, Nick Cannon, isn’t denying reports that she’s expecting!

We’re also buzzing about this maybe-sorta mini-“Friends” reunion. There's lots of stuff out there today about Jennifer Aniston joining Courteney Cox in “Scream 4.” Monica! Rachel! Together again! “How you doin’?”

And it’s definitely not every day that we get fired up about “Twilight.” But when Kristen Stewart (“Bella Swan”) compares being hounded by paparazzi to being raped (in the July 2010 issue of British Elle), we’ve just got to say, “Girl, shut your face!”

There’s nothing that bugs us more than FAMOUS people complaining about being FAMOUS. You don’t want cameras in your face? Go be an accountant. But when you throw the word “rape” around, you’ve definitely gone WAY too far. We’re going to check in with Kristen’s people – I’m thinking she’ll say something like, “I really didn’t mean it like that.”

What do you think about any of these stories? Post here and send us your Showbiz iReport videos. We’ll try to work some of your comments into the show…

Watch Showbiz Tonight live at 5pm on HLN today. And remember, we’re still TV’s most provocative entertainment news show seven days a week at 11pm ET/PT!

    If it true about Mariah and Nick, much congrats. But truthfully speaking, I will only confirm it being true until I hear it from her mouth!

    I heard on the radio yesterday that whether the baby is a boy or girl she will name the child "Mariah"–just like George Foreman naming all his sons" George"– I wish her well–happy news

    On Mariah : That's actually a good thing, she's not getting any younger, so she really needs to have a child now so that she can build a strong and long relationship with her child.

    On Kristen: Nobody wants to be followed all the time, maybe all she wants is to act and not the whole being followed by paparazzi all the time. Maybe she's saying that she wants to be known as an actress but she's afraid of the word "FAME" because it connotes being under a microscope ALL THE TIME.
