'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.

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Plea deals, sex tapes and Snooki

Happy Tuesday! There's so much to discuss, so let’s just do this:

The big news today is about Charlie Sheen – apparently that plea deal involving Sheen working with a theater group by day and sleeping in a jail cell at night fell through. (Hmm...we wonder why? Maybe because it wasn't such a bright idea in the first place?)

So now Sheen and his legal team must return to court in July, but what does that mean for his show, “Two and A Half Men”? Will they delay shooting the new season to accommodate Charlie? "Showbiz Tonight" will be hunting down the answers to that hot topic!
