'Showbiz Tonight': Could Paula's new show take down 'Idol?'

A ferocious debate broke out today about whether or not Denise Richards should be thanking her ex Charlie Sheen for helping her promote her new TV gig on Spike TV.

While Denise did not talk about what happened on that night in Sheen's hotel suite, she did march on with all those interviews. Is this theory mean spirited? You will have to check out our debate later on in the show.

Today we are hearing that Paula Abdul’s new dance show, “Live to Dance,” may go head-to-head with “American Idol.” A lot of people are still furious that Paula is off “Idol.” And remember, “Idol’s” ratings were down about 10 percent last season. (Do you even remember who won? It was Lee DeWyze… you are probably scratching your head saying, “Lee DeWho?”)

So do you think Paula’s show could take down the big beast that is “American Idol?" Which show would you rather watch? Paula’s new show, or “Idol?"

“Shape” magazine reportedly issued a big fat apology to their readers after they featured LeAnne Rimes on their cover.

Calling it “a terrible mistake”, the magazine's editor-in-chief said she was sorry they featured the so-called homewrecker on their cover. Rimes - who has admitted to cheating on ex-husband Dean Sheremet with then-married "CSI" hunk Eddie Cibrian - opened up in the magazine about how her workouts saved her.

"Showbiz Tonight" is guessing LeAnne Rimes can’t be too happy. So is Shape's apology a big slap in the face to LeAnne?! You'll have to tune in to hear our fired up debate.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog. An excellent read. I'll certainly be back.

    If you check your facts a little more, you would see that the editor of Shape did email approx 40 people out of 6 million readers who complained. One of the 40 leaked the email to the media who then blew it out of all proportion (really, lol?) The editor then issued a further explanation about the leak and stated that she did not regret the choice. If you read the article in Shape, you will see that LeAnn gave a candid interview and expressed that she was sorry that her actions had hurt others in the process. The point of the whole article is that fitness and exercise have great benefits for not only the body but also for relieving stress and frustration. I wish journalists would take the time to do their research before rushing to shout the news!

    Adam Albert is a genius singer. Great voice and character! Now I have a big problem believing that American Idol will survive without Simon. With Jennifer Lopez? Come on how interesting could be to watch the show just to see what she is wearing? We predict a weak future for American Idol!

    Adam Lambert broke AI during season 8. Oh, I suppose Randy Jackson helped, as he was the FIRST judge during Adam's audition to recognize the GREATNESS that is Adam F(^&%#@ Lambert.

      I would love to see Paula do better. She just keeps on keeping on. Everybody seems to watch for her to mess up. She can be having a bad day and it is said she is medicated.
