At least two people on the “Showbiz Tonight” staff watched the finale of “The Bachelorette” – me and our co-host, Brooke Anderson.
Executive Producer Dave Levine cited statistics that only one of the four previous “Bachelorette” stars is still with her man, and that's Trista Rehn. We’re going to do the story today, and we want to know your thoughts: Is “The Bachelorette” becoming a big joke?
Especially when you add in “The Bachelor” statistics, which show that about 16 out of 19 couples didn’t make it! On the conference call, Brooke piped in saying, “Though the odds are against all ‘Bachelor’ couples, I still love the show!” Do you think Ali and Roberto have a chance at love?
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen had everyone in our meeting rolling their eyes this morning with her motherhood philosophy. She declared to Harper’s Bazaar, “There should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.”
A worldwide law? This is the same woman who previously said that giving birth “Wasn’t painful, not even a little bit…The second day, I was walking, I was washing dishes, I was making pancakes in the kitchen.” Bundchen's latest comments made "Showbiz" Producer Mara Wilcox, who is also a mother, say, “She needs to stop talking in my opinion.” Do you agree, or should Bundchen be drafting international legislation on breastfeeding?
And we would be remiss if we didn’t talk about the sentencing (or lack thereof) of Charlie Sheen! Sheen just pleaded guilty to assault after being accused of holding a knife to his wife’s throat in December.
We all thought that should warrant some jail time, but we thought wrong. The whole staff was furious that the “Two And A Half Men” star was only given a sentence of 30 days in rehab which he’s apparently already served.
All this happened on the same day Lindsay Lohan was released from serving 13 days in jail for violating her probation, which made us wonder: How is it possible for Sheen, who is guilty of assaulting his wife, to not receive a jail sentence while a troubled Lohan was thrown behind bars for violating probation? What do you guys think: In the case of Charlie Sheen vs. Lindsay Lohan, who got off easier? Make sure you vote in our "Showbiz" poll.
In more Lindsay Lohan news – she’s on the cover of September’s Maxim magazine! We’ll show you what she said in her shocking pre-jail interview 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 11 p.m. ET/PT!
