Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Chelsea Clinton's getting hitched

It’s the event of the year! Chelsea Clinton is getting married and the “Showbiz Tonight” staff could not stop talking about it this morning.

We’re all in agreement that it’s great she’s getting hitched, but $15,000 on portable toilets? Half a million on flowers? By some estimates, the wedding could end up costing almost $3 million! She might be American royalty, but is this wedding getting over-the-top outrageous?

But here's another question that continues to linger in our minds: who will take over for Simon Cowell on “American Idol”? Today, we’re getting a lot of big hints!

A new report said Justin Timberlake and Elton John are in talks with show producers. But, the “Showbiz Tonight” staff is doubtful either of these superstars will strike a deal with “Idol,” especially since another report says Nigel Lythgoe is returning as Executive Producer of the show.

Our Executive Producer, Dave Levine, theorized that if Lythgoe is returning to “Idol” he could get rid of all the judges and start from scratch! What do you think? Let us know in our “Showbiz” poll: “American Idol”: Should they replace all the judges?

There is also incredible buzz today about Hulk Hogan’s ex-wife getting engaged to her 21-year-old boy toy! That paired with the news that Hulk Hogan is launching a career as an infomercial pitchman makes for an outrageous Tuesday on “Showbiz Tonight,” live at 5 p.m. ET on HLN.

And remember, we're still TV's most provocative entertainment news show seven days a week at 11p.m. ET/PT!

    Why do so called people that are in public don't mind being in front of thousands of people during a campaign but if they are getting married try to hide and look stupid while doing it! Why do people try to hide during the most important day of their life...Why announce they are getting married if they don't want people to know when, where or the details....just keep that to themselves....I think they mostly do this for the attention.....

    No offense intended, as I love the Clintons, but she needs to spend some of that wedding budget on whitening her teeth. White teeth make everyone look so much better and hers are very, very yellow.

    These wedding costs are estimates from people who are not even involved in the wedding. Can you not tell the difference?
