Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Listol calls it quits

Quite a debate erupted this morning in the "Showbiz Tonight" meeting over the latest chapter in the ongoing Bristol Palin – Levi Johnston saga. Just when we thought those two lovebirds would reunite and turn into Hollywood’s next power couple – drama prevailed!

Palin called People Magazine sobbing that Johnston may have gotten another girl pregnant and participated in a music video that made fun of her family. The wedding is off!

Johnston has gone back to the role of enemy No. 1 in the Palin family. But the debate rages on – is this whole bizarre romance just a big publicity stunt? We’re debating it today on "Showbiz Tonight!"

Behind the scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Mel Gibson vs. James Bond?

The staff of "Showbiz Tonight" surely did not see this one coming: Mel Gibson vs. James Bond?! has released another angry voice recording, allegedly of Mel Gibson jealously berating his ex-girlfriend Oksana Girgorieva about her last lover, former "James Bond" star Timothy Dalton.  She and Dalton had a son together, Alexander, who is now 12.

It seems to be a big point of contention because, on the newest tape, a man who sounds like Gibson screams about Dalton, saying, “Did you get my last message about me being a bad father, and Tim being a great dad now?” Listen to the full tape on "Showbiz Tonight!"

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Is Mel Gibson the only one to blame?

It's been a rough few days for Mel Gibson, but as we debated today in the "Showbiz Tonight" meeting, is he really the only one to blame in his messy, explosive split from ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva? How much should we be blaming Grigorieva in this mess?

Gibson has been slapped with a criminal investigation for alleged domestic violence, suddenly dropped by his talent agency and is now under serious scrutiny. To make matters worse, is releasing more tapes today allegedly featuring the actor and director in another violent and racist rant against his ex-girlfriend.

It could very well be curtains for Gibson's career, but it seems this whole case isn't so cut and dry. "Showbiz Tonight" producer Sid Lipsey said this morning that he doesn't believe Grigorieva is blameless in this drama. Could she be held partially accountable for the fall of Mel Gibson? Did she break the law? Tonight, we're getting the best experts in the biz to duke it out!

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Mel Gibson's bitter custody battle

Today in the morning meeting, the "Showbiz Tonight" staff was fascinated by a brand new report that says Lindsay Lohan stands to make a million dollars on her tell-all when she gets out of jail!

Our producers were divided on this - while it sounds crazy that someone would fork over a million dollars to Lohan, she does still need to make money and provide for herself. What do you think?

Mel Gibson is in the hot seat big time today because he's involved in a bitter custody battle and domestic violence investigation with his ex-girlfriend, Russian singer Oksana Grigorieva.

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Remembering two icons

It's a big day today on "Showbiz Tonight," starting with the breaking developments in the Michael Jackson case.

The late icon's father Joe Jackson unexpectedly filed a wrongful death lawsuit in federal court today against Dr. Conrad Murray, the man charged with involuntary manslaughter in the Jackson death case.

The lawsuit raised a lot of provocative questions today in the morning meeting. "Showbiz Tonight" producer Sandra Lee didn’t mince words when she said, “I find Joe Jackson’s timing interesting – why file the unlawful death lawsuit on his anniversary?” We’re tackling that and so much more.

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Will Lindsay go nude?

The "Showbiz Tonight" team was at it again this morning in our morning meeting. So many explosive new entertainment stories today, and so little time! Here are some of the hot new topics:

Lindsay Lohan is reportedly planning to pose nude *with* her alcohol monitoring anklet on in order to hock her new line of purses. Really Lindsay? What’s up with this latest bout of celebrities getting down and dirty just to get a little attention? "Showbiz Tonight" will have a lineup of top experts to break it down for us.

And if you haven’t already seen Miley’s eyebrow-raising outfit at a Canadian awards show, suffice it to say that it's pretty outrageous. She wore a black netted outfit reminiscent of Cher circa the 1986 Oscars, but the thing is, Miley is only 17-years-old.
