'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint': Is Anthony Weiner Hollywood-bound?

Congressman Anthony Weiner has finally resigned from office after his Twitter sexting scandal. And today, I can tell you he’s starting to receive Hollywood offers. So we have to ask, should Weiner go to Hollywood?

It’s certainly fun to ponder the idea of Anthony Weiner going Hollywood, and it’s easy to see how writers or shows might want to capitalize on his story since people are so aware of him right now. But I think what he really needs to do is disappear and work on his life. Although, if Weiner does decide to go Hollywood, he will fit right in with the narcissistic crowd.

We’ve also got a big debate tonight over Lady Gaga new video, “Edge of Glory.” Some people think it’s brilliant, some think it’s a total bore.

Also, we have VH1’s “Mob Wives” stars Renee Graziano and Karen Gravano in a Showbiz Newsmaker interview. We’re asking them what they would do with Anthony Weiner if he was their husband! As stars of their own reality show, we also get their take on the reported new “Jersey Shore” cast salary demands!

We're talking to comedian Ross Matthews (he used to be “Ross the Intern” on “The Tonight Show") about what he thinks Weiner should do next, and what he thinks about Tracy Morgan’s apology tour.

See you exclusively tonight at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN!

    @Jen..lol ! I think you are a little boy pretending to be a girl. Fernace you have to wait in line for me. I already have my girls that I like on here and would like to woo them if ever I get tired of my girl. Peace, beautiful vixen, sunshine girl, maybe nancy and i was thinking jen but i think jen is a player. She just said that she is going and show her red bottoms tonight and show the boys. Peace is back so I don't have to send out a search party. I thought someone kidnapped my little pony Peace. Beautiful Vixen I seen her floating around on the Snooki pickle blog. Too bad she wasn't frisky on that blog. I like frisky, i then want to jump on her and bite her toes. Sunshine girl, I have to wait out her love connection with b lo me (speaking of..where is he? was he kidnapped too?). I can't move in on his girl, he might kick my azz. Nancy..umm i think she is a tease and a pole dancer. I might squeeze you in fernace, after all, I am h -ung and can handle all you women

      Saw that story earlier, probably the craziest thing i've ever seen in the news, which is saying something. These people have the bomb and they're worried about some guys soul in this mangy dog. Best part was they were going to have the neighborhood kids stone it.

    Now that everyone has had their 15 minutes of fame it is time for them both to crawl back under the rock. Apparently neither one bothered to think about "the wife." Apparently, Weiner had more important things to do than helping to run the government of the United States http://bit.ly/m66Suy

    Weiner is butt-ugly, so unless it's a comedy spot on Saturday Night Live, I don't think so.
