ANDERSON: Hi, there. I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood with big news breaking today - is there a Palin peace pact? The family feud that seemed to have no end in sight may finally be over.

SHOWBIZ TONIGHT got the startling news today that Sarah Palin`s teenage daughter may have finally made up with the father of her baby, the fame- seeking, "Playgirl" posing Levi Johnston.

But if Levi has made up with Bristol, does that also mean his very nasty and very public feud with Bristol`s mom, Sarah, is over? Or would that be way too much to hope for? SHOWBIZ TONIGHT bringing you today`s late- breaking developments in the possible Palin peace pact.


(voice-over): Previously on "Wasilla 99654" -

LEVI JOHNSTON, BRISTOL PALIN`S EX-BOYFRIEND: We ended up not seeing eye- to-eye with each other anymore.

ANDERSON: The adorable teen couple breaks up amid the pressure of raising their baby.

JOHNSTON: Things got tough.

ANDERSON: The dashing young father begins a bitter war against a powerful matriarch.

FMR. GOV. SARAH PALIN (R-AK): He doesn`t have anything on me.

JOHNSTON: I really don`t care anymore. Now, it`s my turn.

ANDERSON: And the young ingenue response to the drama by going celibate.

BRISTOL PALIN, SARAH PALIN`S DAUGHTER: I just think it`s a goal to have and I think other young women should have that goal.

ANDERSON: Yes, you never know what`s going to happen on "Wasilla 99654." But SHOWBIZ TONIGHT can tell you, in today`s episode of the long-running Palin family soap opera, there`s a shocking new development. Sarah Palin`s 19-year-old daughter, Bristol, and 20-year-old Levi Johnston, the father of Bristol`s year-old baby boy, Tripp, have ended their feud and perhaps more.

LINDSAY POWERS, "US WEEKLY MAGAZINE": Sources are telling "" that Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are back on.

ANDERSON: Lindsay Powers of "Us Magazine" tells SHOWBIZ TONIGHT her sources say Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are back together.

POWERS: Sources tell us they`re spending a lot more time together than you would even know. And in fact, Levi even stays overnight in the condo that Bristol bought for herself in Anchorage, Alaska.

ANDERSON: When Bristol and Levi broke up last year, shortly after their baby was born, the Palins and the Johnstons waged a family feud worthy of a soap opera. They took turns insulting each other on morning talk shows.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: So they`re lying?


S. PALIN: It will be nice to see in - I guess, even in legal proceedings a desire to be a part of the baby`s life. That`s a good sign.

ANDERSON: So what, reportedly, brought them back together?

POWERS: Now that Bristol lives on her own in Anchorage and her mom, Sarah, isn`t as involved in her day-to-day life, she`s become much closer to Levi again.

ANDERSON: In fact, just this past March, Levi himself told SHOWBIZ TONIGHT about his warming relationship with Bristol.

JOHNSTON: We`re building that friendship again - you know, getting comfortable with each other. So things are getting better.

ANDERSON: And Bristol agrees. Today, she told "Good Morning America," quote, "Levi and I are turning a new page here as co-parents to this wonderful boy and putting aside the past because doing so is in Tripp`s best interest.

POWERS: It`s a drastic difference.

ANDERSON: But while Bristol and Levi are raising their kid together, are they together again? Levi`s manager insists the answer is no. He tells "E! News," "They`re raising their child together. Levi is spending more time with his son, but he`s definitely not spending the night."

POWERS: Levi`s manager may sound like he`s downplaying the way that their relationship is going. But he has reason to do so.

ANDERSON: "Us Magazine`s" Lindsay Powers tells SHOWBIZ TONIGHT Levi has a good reason to keep a possible new romance on the down low. Levi is shopping around a reality show where he hangs out with his buddies while trolling for girls.

In other words, this show would be less like "Wasilla 99654" and more like "The Wasilla Shore."

And "Us Magazine`s" Lindsay Powers tells SHOWBIZ TONIGHT Levi can`t be the next "The Situation" if he`s romancing the mother of his child.

POWERS: It`s not really in Levi`s best financial interest to have a girlfriend right now.

ANDERSON: But whether they`re an item again or not, it`s hard not to see the Bristol-Levi truce as anything but good news, even for Sarah Palin.

POWERS: Sarah is a big proponent of family values. So for her daughter and Levi to be able to work things out would work very well for her politically.

ANDERSON: Or would it? Because, as the Palins and Johnstons have shown, you never know what`s going to happen on "Wasilla 99654."


ANDERSON: The bombshell news today that Levi and Bristol have actually found some common ground and are now working together to raise their little boy raises a whole boatload of questions today about Sarah Palin`s relationship with Levi. And that brings us to today`s "SHOWBIZ Flashpoint," "Do you think the Sarah Palin-Levi Johnston feud is over?"

Right now, in New York, is Cooper Lawrence, who is a syndicated radio host and author of "The Cult of Celebrity." Also in New York, Carolina Bermudez who is the senior editor for "In Touch Weekly" and co-host of radio`s "Elvis Duran and the Morning Show."

Ladies, I`ve got to say, I think Bristol and Levi`s reunion is fantastic. But I`ve got to wonder if there`s a thaw in the cold Alaskan war between Sarah and Levi. So to the "SHOWBIZ Flashpoint," Carolina, do you think the Sarah Palin-Levi Johnston feud is over? Or do you think it will be a cold day in Alaska before that ever happens?

CAROLINA BERMUDEZ, SENIOR EDITOR, "IN TOUCH WEEKLY": Yes. I don`t know about that. I mean, they were slinging some pretty mean insults against each other a while back. But I think that one thing you have to understand is that Sarah probably wants this to work out.

She wants her grandson to have a father in his life. And I think that there`s so many kids that don`t have that influence. So it would be in her best interest to kind of turn the other cheek and maybe keep a side eye on Levi to make sure that he`s still treating her daughter right. But I don`t know if it`s completely over just yet.

ANDERSON: Yes. And Sarah has said she was sad that the relationships had deteriorated and that she felt he was going down the wrong path. So Cooper, after all the trash talking they did, you know, especially that Levi did about Sarah, do you think that the Sarah-Levi feud is over? Do you think this could ever be over?

COOPER LAWRENCE, SYNDICATED RADIO HOST: I think it has to be over for the sake of this child. And I think that`s why they`re trying to get back together, which I`m sure we`ll get into because I have a whole theory about this, by the way.

But you know, how will Sarah Palin react? It depends what Bristol does because Bristol may be doing this to elicit some response out of her mother, right? Because this is the guy that`s like her arch enemy. So who knows?

I mean, I hope that Sarah is a bigger person and decides this is the best interest for the grandchild. But it gets dirty. Like Carolina was saying, they like to sling mud, those kids.

ANDERSON: I know. Especially when it`s a family matter. Sometimes it can get extremely ugly. But hopefully, Sarah`s also letting bygones be bygones and they can be adults about it.

But of course, the news today sparked a firestorm of interest in how deep Bristol and Levi`s relationship really is, because - listen to this, Carolina. He`s expected to be doing a reality show featuring him and his buddies possibly chasing around hot girls.

BERMUDEZ: Yes. I think that`s a little bit of a conflict of interest here. I mean, I think the well has run dry for poor Levi. You know, after the "Playgirl" shots, there really weren`t many opportunities for him.

But I think if that`s the reason why he`s holding back, that shouldn`t be it. I mean, they should not be spending the night together unless they`re ready to be in another committed relationship, especially with Bristol being an abstinence advocate.

So it`s probably better off that they kind of just focus on the co- parenting instead of having relations again. But who knows? His representative said they`re not spending the night together. I don`t know if we`re ever going to get a clear answer on this one.

ANDERSON: Yes. And she characterized the relationship as co-parenting, that they`re doing it all for the sake of the child.

OK. We`ve got to move now from a reunion to a possible divorce bombshell. SHOWBIZ TONIGHT learned brand-new details today about Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller`s potential divorce deal.

Late today, we learned that Charlie and Brooke are currently living apart. They have not filed for divorce, but newly revealed documents drawn up some time ago surfaced today showing how they`ve split everything up if they ever did divorce.

Cooper, it seems strange to me that they drew up documents like this. It`s not a pre-nup. I don`t know what to call it.

LAWRENCE: I call it him protecting his millions and millions and millions of dollars. I mean, it`s smart that they did this because clearly - I mean, there`s a lawsuit going on here. There`s abuse allegations.

This isn`t just a couple that decided, you know what, this relationship just isn`t working. This is a couple that really - they have drug problems together. They have alcohol problems together. There was abuse. They have kids.

I mean, it`s like a whole big melting pot of all the worst possible scenarios. So I`m glad they at least had the frame of mind to sit down and write something up that makes sense.

BERMUDEZ: I`m just glad that Charlie -

ANDERSON: It`s almost like they know the marriage is doomed. Go ahead, very quickly.

BERMUDEZ: No. I`m just glad that Charlie is protecting his watch collection because that`s included in this document. You know what I mean? It just really tells you where their priorities are here. So this couple - gosh.

LAWRENCE: That is very important to him.

ANDERSON: And it definitely doesn`t protect his cars. They all get driven off the cliff over on Mulholland Drive. All right. We`re going to leave it there for now. Cooper Lawrence, Carolina Bermudez, thanks, ladies.

We`ve got brand-new Miley Cyrus photo anger today. I`m really disturbed by this. Big-time celebrity blogger Perez Hilton is accused of posting a sexually revealing photo of Miley, but Perez denies it. He`s being slammed today, though. And Miley herself is striking back.

Hey, I know my exclusive interview with Eminem, where he revealed to me his brush with death, was shocking. But I never imagined the worldwide reaction we would get. More of my exclusive headline-making interview with Eminem today.


EMINEM: I overdosed. Got out the hospital. Relapsed a short time after that. Basically scared the (EXPLETIVE DELETED) out of myself.


ANDERSON: And what`s this? Kate Gosselin, the next bachelorette? I don`t know if I can see her in the hot tub. So SHOWBIZ TONIGHT truth squad, we`ll check this one out. This is on SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN news and views.

And now, the "SHOWBIZ News Ticker" - more stories from the SHOWBIZ TONIGHT newsroom making news today.

TEXT: Jennifer Garner warns paparazzi she`ll sue if they don`t stay away from her kids. Katy Perry tells SHOWBIZ TONIGHT about her video for "California Gurls."


KATY PERRY, SINGER: When you hear "California Girls," you think automatically it`s going to be a music video of, like, girls that aren`t wearing much in a beach setting. No, not going there.





EMINEM: Certainly, probably a couple hours away from death. Not to make this too tense of a moment, but yes. I overdosed and almost died.


ANDERSON: Eminem`s explosive revelation to me in our exclusive one-on-one interview. Wait until you hear what else Em told me about getting his life back on track after a drug overdose and hitting rock bottom.

Welcome back to SHOWBIZ TONIGHT. I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood. I got to tell you, SHOWBIZ TONIGHT`s exclusive one on one interview with Eminem went viral today. The headlines were all over the Internet today.

Eminem shocked us all after he revealed to me and the world his brush with death after a drug overdose. He made these blockbuster revelations right before his performance at Activision`s E-3 kickoff event.

Em`s new track, "Won`t Back Down" is on the new videogame called "Call of Duty Black Ops." And when we spoke, I asked Eminem how he was able to not only turn his life around, but avoid the temptations of fame.


EMINEM: I went through a really rough period after I came home from rehab. And I lost my best friend. And kind of the brains were off. It was kind of just like, you know, screw it. This is, like, you know.

And from there, I really went downhill. That`s when I overdosed. Got out the hospital. Relapsed a short time after that. Basically, scared the (EXPLETIVE DELETED) out of myself and went to some people and was like, "Yes, I`ve got a problem. I need help. I can`t beat this on my own." Because the whole time, I think I was thinking that I could, but I couldn`t.

ANDERSON: Do you have to constantly stay on guard each and every day after experiencing something like that so you don`t relapse again?

EMINEM: Well, definitely you got to - you know, you got to work the program because the program works. You`ve got to work the steps. You`ve got to - you know, you have to stay in touch with other recovering people.

You have to surround yourself with the right people, the right crowd, the right friends. You know what I mean? But as long as I do that, which I`m doing right now, I`ll be fine.


ANDERSON: How should people who are exposed to the trappings of fame and everything that comes along with it avoid the pitfalls?

EMINEM: That`s a tough question. I don`t know how you avoid it. I mean, you know, I could say the cliche things. You know, make sure that you stay on the right path. You make the right decisions in life, you know.

I mean, fame is a funny thing, man, especially, you know, actors, musicians, you know, rappers, rock singers. Like, it`s kind of a lifestyle, you know. And it`s definitely - it`s easy to get caught up in it.

You go to bars. You go to clubs. You know, everyone`s doing a certain thing. You know, it`s tough, man. It`s tough. You get things handed to you for free a lot of times.

You know, it`s very easy to fall into it. I mean, I could say, stay away from that. But you know, I guess you have to experience it, like there`s some people who can go do that. There`s some people who can`t, you know. And I was one of those people who couldn`t. And I had a tough time trying to understand why I couldn`t.


ANDERSON: How has parenthood changed you as a person?

EMINEM: Well, parenthood makes you grow up. It makes you get old quicker. Your kids make you old, you know. If I didn`t have kids, I probably wouldn`t be this old. No, I mean, that`s -

ANDERSON: They keep you young, too, though, don`t they?

EMINEM: Yes, they definitely do. And you know, it`s just - that`s the foundation. That`s where everything is rooted, you know, just being a dad.


ANDERSON: Eminem`s new album, "Recovery," hits stores on Monday.

All right. Moving on, brand-new Miley Cyrus photo outrage today. A sexually-revealing photo of Miley allegedly posted by Perez Hilton, one of the biggest celebrity bloggers around. But he denies it.

But people are furious. Remember, Miley just 17. And so today, Miley is striking back.

Oh, this reality star battle getting super nasty today. Bethenny versus Omarosa. Omarosa calling Bethenny a twit today and claims Bethenny`s husband wears dresses.

How embarrassing is this? The most outrageous best faints ever caught on tape.


JEANNE MOOS, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): When Marie Osmond was on "Dancing with the Stars," she fainted.


ANDERSON: This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN news and views. And now, the "SHOWBIZ News Ticker" - more stories from the SHOWBIZ TONIGHT newsroom making news today.

ANDERSON: Did you see this? It`s the "Precious" star, Gabourey Sidibe`s mom bringing down the house on "America`s Got Talent." Her incredible rendition of Etta James` "At Last" got her a standing ovation. Will this be Gabby`s mom`s big break?

This is one of my favorite stories today. Gabby`s mom, Alice Tan Ridley, is an underground singer, literally. She performs in the New York City subways. Gabby`s mom says she loves her unusual venue because she gets to make so many different people smile.

I think Alice is going to be the one to watch. She brought down the house on "America`s Got Talent." Check out more of Alice Tan Ridley`s outstanding rendition of one of my all-time favorite songs, "At Last."


ANDERSON: Gabby`s first movie role got her an Oscar nomination. So I hope her mom`s big TV debut is going to get her a record deal. It has to. This is one talented family, right?

OK. I just took a look at the SHOWBIZ TONIGHT Facebook wall. There`s a raging debate going on right now. Should Gary Coleman`s ex-wife, Shannon Price, get control of his estate?

Marquita G. thinks all of Coleman`s money should be donated, "Everything should be given to charity. The ex is still the ex and he sued his parents, so why would he want either of them to have anything?"

Ellie C. is upset, "What a disgrace. Everybody seems to be sucking this dead man dry. Greed is the driving force in all this mess. God rest his soul. He`s finally at peace and can`t see all the greed and evilness happening in his name."

ANDERSON: Plus, breaking today from the "SHOWBIZ News Ticker," Angelina Jolie`s new lifesaving message. And is Coldplay coming to "Glee?"

ANNOUNCER: TV`s most provocative entertainment news show continues right now.


ANDERSON: We welcome you back to SHOWBIZ TONIGHT. It is 30 minutes past the hour. I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood with big news breaking today - Miley photo fury.

Brand-new outrage today against celebrity blogger Perez Hilton after he allegedly posted a sexually-revealing photo of Miley Cyrus apparently not wearing any underwear.

Now, critics are slamming Perez, accusing him of exposing the under-aged star. He denies doing anything wrong. But wait. There`s more. Miley is striking back today. And let me tell you, she isn`t happy. So does Perez deserve to be slammed over this?

Right now in New York is Ben Widdicombe who is a celebrity journalist. Also, right now, in New York, is Carolina Bermudez who is a senior editor with "In Touch Weekly" and co-host of radio`s "Elvis Duran and the Morning Show."

Ben, Carolina, we`re going to get to Miley`s response, her fired up response in just a moment. But first, brand-new reports today say Miley was actually wearing underwear in the photo Perez posted.

Perez denies that he did anything wrong. But I`ve got to say, underwear or no underwear, Miley is just 17 years old. I say posting any suggestive photo is kind of crossing a line. Ben, does Perez deserve to get slammed here?

BEN WIDDICOMBE, CELEBRITY JOURNALIST: I don`t think Perez did anything particularly wrong and I`m not impartial. I`m a longstanding friend of Perez. But you know, there`s still a question about whether she was or wasn`t wearing panties. He erred on the side of caution. He took the photo down. So he is responding to, you know, the public outrage about the situation.

ANDERSON: But even the mere suggestion that she wasn`t, is that not crossing the line? Is that not irreverent? Is that not something to be - go ahead.

WIDDICOMBE: That`s a borderline issue because Miley is so young. But she`s 17 years old. She`s a pop star. She`s putting herself out there. I think that unfortunately, she exposes herself to this kind of analysis.

BERMUDEZ: Oh, Ben, that is not right. I`m so sorry. I have to disagree with you. I`ve known Perez for a long time as well.

ANDERSON: Go ahead.

BERMUDEZ: But I have to tell you, this is just poor judgment. And I think we have to look at something - a bigger issue here and that`s intent. His intent was to embarrass Miley. She`s a 17-year-old girl.

It doesn`t matter what she does professionally. She`s still underage. And unfortunately, I think that Perez may have let one slip past the goalie here. And he did take down the original post so that may seem - I think he`s recognizing that he may have done something wrong.

ANDERSON: Perez is saying that he was just trying to show that Miley was exiting a car in an unladylike manner. But Carolina is not buying that explanation.


ANDERSON: And you know, some like Ben are actually putting some of the responsibility for this photo controversy on Miley because she has been trying to shed her Hannah Montana image with a more provocative approach.

And today, Miley responded to the photo flap and to people who say that she`s too sexed up, that she`s too provocative. Listen to what she just told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show.


RYAN SEACREST, RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: Do you care when people criticize how provocative everything is?

MILEY CYRUS, SINGER: Well, the record isn`t provocative. So if you like -

SEACREST: Well, I don`t know. I saw some pictures of you somewhere on stage.

CYRUS: (UNINTELLIGIBLE). That`s not my record. That`s, like, some idiot being an idiot. That`s not me. You know what I`m saying? So like, my record, if you`re buying that, you`re not buying whatever somebody with no life - isn`t it funny that things like that are so negative have to come out right before my record?

It`s like no one can just let a positive happen. So all I do is focus on the positive and that I hope the record does well.


ANDERSON: So Ben, after hearing that, does Miley deserve some of the blame or not? Quickly.

WIDDICOMBE: I think, yes. I think whether you`re 17 or 70, if you`re accepting millions of dollars by being a pop star, then you invite that scrutiny into your life.

ANDERSON: Well, sometimes she looks and acts like she`s 30 years old. But we do have to remember she`s just a child, just 17.


ANDERSON: All right. I`ve got to move now to some other big star scandals - Tori Spelling reveals the skinny secrets behind her shocking weight loss. Plus, is Snooki hooking up with a new kid on the block? It`s all in "The Buzz" today.


(voice-over): The skinny on Tori. Tori Spelling is now revealing why she got so skinny, denying she`s anorexic. In her book, "Uncharted Territory," the reality star blames her weight loss on getting the swine flu, migraines and nerve problems.

On the "Today" show, Spelling said she`s really been hurt by all the speculation.

TORI SPELLING, ACTRESS AND REALITY TV STAR: It hurts to call people overweight. But when you call someone underweight, it`s just as horrible. You know, it really knocks down your self-confidence.

ANDERSON: Snooki`s new kid on the block. It`s just been revealed the "Jersey Shore" star has been going back and forth on Twitter with New Kid on the Block, Jordan Knight. The not-so-new kid told the Snookster that he`s hers. Snooki tweetingly joked, "So I`m in the cab and see a headline of us dating. LOL! The things Twitter does. You know I got all the love for you, J-Rock."

And a dating denial from Cameron Diaz. For the very first time, Cameron is denying reports she`s dating Kate Hudson`s former boyfriend, Yankee superstar Alex Rodriguez, saying no, no, no.

In a brand-new interview with "Playboy" Cameron says she wants to focus on herself right now. She also reveals she has an open mind about her sexuality, saying, "We put these restraints and definitions on people, but it`s hard to define. If I`m going to be with a woman sexually, it doesn`t mean I`m a lesbian."


Cameron Diaz makes some pretty shocking confessions today and shooting down the rampant reports that she`s dating Yankees star, Alex Rodriguez. Carolina, you buying what she`s selling?

BERMUDEZ: Absolutely. There`s no relationship there. Where I`m from, we call that a booty call. So I believe Cameron 100 percent. And if it`s working from her, God love her, you know.

ANDERSON: Hey, Ben, quickly - do you think Cameron is putting to rest all those reports that maybe she`s feuding with A-Rod`s ex, Kate Hudson?

WIDDICOMBE: I hope not. I want there to be a feud with Kate Hudson because I firmly believe that celebrities exist for our amusement. And I think those two girls should fill a kiddy pool with Jello and settle it once and for all.

ANDERSON: Oh, Ben, always loving a good cat fight. Ben Widdicombe, Carolina Bermudez, thanks, guys.

Hey, did you see Cameron Diaz do this? Cameron getting behind the wheel of a sports car, chasing down Tom Cruise. Cameron and Tom hit the streets of Seville, Spain today to perform a stunt from their new movie "Knight and Day."

They did it live on "Good Morning America." Now, in the movie, Tom plays a spy. And Cameron`s character gets swept up in his hijinks. Nine cameras were used to capture Tom and Cameron`s daredevil driving. And we know a lot of coordination is required to pull off a stunt like this.

But honestly, I`ve seen crazier driving out here on the 405. Cameron says she loved performing her own stunts in "Knight and Day." Take a look.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Thank you, Cameron. Thank you, Cameron.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That was fun. I really liked it.

DIAZ: Now, you know why we do it ourselves, right?



ANDERSON: Tom and Cameron pretty much did all their own stunts in the movie. "Knight and Day" hits theaters June 23rd. The action scenes in the movie will be a lot more riveting, trust me.

OK. So much for au naturale. Sensational new reports today that Jessica Simpson may be looking to get plastic surgery. The SHOWBIZ truth squad is going to set the record straight today.

How much do I love my job today? I had to read the new issue of "People" magazine. Poor me. It`s all about the most amazing bodies in Hollywood. You`ll be surprised with who made the cut. Tough job, I know. I`m happy to do it.

And looking at all those hot bodies is making me feel a little hot under the collar. But I`m not going to faint. Today, I`ve got the best faints ever, though, caught on tape.


MOOS: When Marie Osmond was on "Dancing with the Stars," she fainted.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The first words out of her mouth when she saw us all leaning over her were, "Oh, crap."


ANDERSON: This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN news and views. And now, the "SHOWBIZ News Ticker" - more stories from the SHOWBIZ TONIGHT newsroom making news today.

TEXT: Miley Cyrus giving live concert on June 21st to celebrate new album. Angelina Jolie releases special video message to mark World Refugee Day.


ANGELINA JOLIE, ACTRESS AND HUMANITARIAN: On this day, World Refugee Day, please remember the millions of people around the world forced from their homes whose only hope of return is to not be forgotten.


ANDERSON: Welcome back to SHOWBIZ TONIGHT. I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood with big news breaking today about stars stripping down to their skivvies.

They`re all in "People" magazine which today released its choices for the 50 Most Amazing Bodies in Hollywood, including everyone from Zac Efron to Cameron Diaz and even The Situation. Yes.

SHOWBIZ TONIGHT obtained today an advanced copy of "People`s" "Most Amazing Star Bodies" issue, hitting newsstands on Friday.

Right now, in New York is Alexis Chiu. She is a senior writer for "People" magazine.

Alexis, I`ve got to kick it off with Jennifer Love Hewitt because I love that she made the cut.


ANDERSON: I also cheered her on, Alexis, when she really fought back after being slammed for her weight after those unflattering bikini pictures surfaced a few years ago. But that just made her want to wear bikinis even more. What did she tell you about that?

CHIU: Jennifer Love Hewitt - what a body she has. She`s so honest and she talked a lot about the 2007 pictures that you`re referring to. She talks about how much it hurt. She was devastated, actually. And it really made her not only change her body but her mindset.

So she got in shape. She got so healthy on the inside and she worked her butt off literally. And look at her now. She`s now, you know, just bought a string bikini for the first time since she was 16. She told me she plans to rock it with pride this year. So she`s come a long way.

ANDERSON: Yes. Good for her. Rock those string bikinis. And I really admire how honest she was. She said, "You know what? I`m still a work in progress."

I want to move to this, Alexis, because another amazing body is Mike "The Situation" from the "Jersey Shore." I`m not surprised he made your list because his six-back abs alone make him qualified.

And in "People" - take a look at this picture. He`s posing with some of Miami`s finest grandpas. Alexis, what was The Situation with that?

CHIU: That situation was sort of amazing. I could look at that picture all day. He obviously wasn`t shy about showing off his abs. Happy to do it. Giddy as a clam. And the guys in that picture were all bussed over, actually, from their retirement home.

Honestly, a lot of them didn`t know a lot about The Situation, but were more than happy to pull their shirts up and join him.

ANDERSON: Yes. And since when is The Situation ever shy about taking his shirt off? OK. Another amazing body - reality star Kendra Wilkinson who, I`ve got to say, is getting just as much attention these days for her sex tape as for her show. Alexis, why did Kendra make the cut?

CHIU: Kendra made the cut because she had a baby a few months ago. And she looks great now, but she was really honest. That`s what we were supposed to be going for, people who are very relatable.

And while she was maybe not as relatable before she was a "Playboy" bunny - she never had to work at it, she says. Now, she`s admitting she has to exercise. She actually has to diet for the first time in her life.


CHIU: So we found that sort of refreshing.

ANDERSON: It`s not easy. Yes, definitely relatable for a lot of us. Alexis Chiu, thanks so much for sharing this issue with us. And you guys at home can get your hands on all of these hotties when "People" magazine goes on sale everywhere Friday.

Now, talking about all those hot bods, making me a little bit lightheaded. It`s OK. It`s not going to pass out. I promise. But I will share with you some of the best faints ever. Check out this SHOWBIZ caught on tape. Here`s CNN`s Jeanne Moos for SHOWBIZ TONIGHT.


MOOS (voice-over): At least, Gen. Petraeus was sitting down when he collapsed. John McCain was in mid-sentence -

SEN. JOHN MCCAIN (R-AZ): The best way to -

MOOS: Looking straight at the general with surprise written all over his face. You can even hear him mutter -

MCCAIN: Oh, my god.

MOOS: As aides rushed to the general`s side and photographers rushed to get the shot. Gen. Petraeus was led away under his own power. Five minutes later, he returned to a round of applause saying it was just a case of dehydration.


MOOS: Remember when the first President Bush ended up sick under the table at a Japanese state dinner? He was still joking about it years later.

GEORGE H.W. BUSH, FORMER UNITED STATES PRESIDENT: The ugliest part was my dear friend from Las Vegas, Sig Rogich, was giving me mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

MOOS: When Marie Osmond was on "Dancing with the Stars," she fainted. And after they went to commercial -

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The first words out of her mouth when she saw us all leaning over her were, "Oh, crap."

MOOS: When Bill Daley was nominated for Commerce Secretary by Bill Clinton, his faint was captured from two different camera angles. Look who helped catch him - CNN`s Wolf Blitzer. At least when regular folks collapse -

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: As a result - as a result -


MOOS: There aren`t cameras on you as there were on then Attorney General Michael Mukasey. And if you`re the prime minister of Italy, it`s primetime all the time especially when you`re not in your prime. Sometimes the cameras aimed at the bigwig catch a fainter in the background.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE CHILD: I fainted in front of the governor. Oh, no.

MOOS: There she goes.

BILL CLINTON, FORMER UNITED STATES PRESIDENT: The health system that everybody agrees were there.

MOOS: And being a guest on "Glenn Beck Show" can leave you lightheaded.



BECK: OK. Are you OK? You want to hang on?

BUCKNER: I`m passing out.

BECK: OK. You want to sit down? OK. Alright. Oh, oh, oh. You OK? OK. Somebody help him, please.

MOOS (on camera): But imagine having a fainting spell while you`re trying to spell this (Text: Alopecoid) It means "fox-like."


MOOS: Seconds later, this 13-year-old finalist was up and spelling.


MOOS: A word not for the faint of heart.




ANDERSON: Oh, (UNINTELLIGIBLE). Just kidding. That was CNN`s Jeanne Moos for SHOWBIZ TONIGHT.

Hey, big Kate Gosselin news today. Is she getting another TV show? Will she be the next bachelorette? Hey, SHOWBIZ truth squad, will you accept this rose and go out there and set the record straight on this? This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN news and views.

And now, the "SHOWBIZ News Ticker" - more stories from the SHOWBIZ TONIGHT newsroom making news today.

TEXT: Sandra Bullock dominates Teen Choice Awards nominations - she gets three! "Glee" creator says Coldplay agrees to let its songs be performed on the show.


ANDERSON: Great song. And now, HLN`s salute to dads. Father`s day coming up. And we`ve been asking stars what their fathers mean to them. SHOWBIZ TONIGHT caught up with R & B singer Ciara at the "Karate Kid 2" premiere. And Ciara told us she absolutely loves her father and she loves being a daddy`s girl even more.


CIARA, R & B SINGER: Hey, daddy. It`s your daughter here, Ciara. And I want you to know I love you and you are amazing and you`ve been the best to me over the years.

My first love. You know, I always say, like, with your dad, it`s the first man that you love, you know what I mean? So my daddy - I`m a daddy`s girl, and I love you. Have a good Father`s Day. Hello!


ANDERSON: Aww, so sweet. Happy Father`s Day a little bit early to all the dads out there. This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN news and views.


ANDERSON: SHOWBIZ truth squad on the case today. We are going to set the record straight right now on two big sensational new stories about Kate Gosselin and Jessica Simpson.

First up, is jess plastic surgery shopping? Yes, Jess was spotted visiting a medical facility. Yes, the medical facility has plastic surgery doctors in it. So does two plus two equal a nip here, a tuck here?

Well, Jess headed to Twitter to put all this plastic surgery talk to rest. She tweeted, "True, went to the doctor yesterday. False, plastic surgery." So that`s a big fat no on plastic surgery for Simpson.

Also on the SHOWBIZ truth squad to-do list today - is Kate Gosselin about to become the new bachelorette? A Kate rep just contacted SHOWBIZ TONIGHT and told us that it`s not happening. Can you imagine she were, though? Wow! That would be a show. Kate steaming it up with suitors in the hot tub.

All right. This Omarosa-Bethenny Frankel reality feud getting nastier today. Omarosa calls Bethenny a twit, even says her husband wears dresses. Bethenny, who is on "Real Housewives of New York City," started this whole ugly showdown dissing on Omarosa who got her 15 minutes of fame on "The Apprentice." Bethenny pretty much said Omarosa didn`t have a career.

Well, Omarosa hit back hard claiming Bethenny`s husband is gay and alleging Bethenny got a tummy tuck after giving birth. Bethenny has said she lost about 30 pounds naturally.

Well, I can tell you today that Omarosa not backing down. Listen to her go off on our HLN friend Joy Behar`s show.


JOY BEHAR, HOST, "THE JOY BEHAR SHOW": Do you think it was a little bit overkill to say that her husband is gay? Do you know -

OMAROSA MANIGAULT-STALLWORTH, REALITY TV STAR, "THE APPRENTICE": Well, if you saw him in the dress that I saw him in, then you might think he`s gay.

BEHAR: You`re kidding now, right? You`re kidding, right?

STALLWORTH: Bethenny is enough man for him, so if that`s his appetite -

BEHAR: But isn`t it overkill to say she had a tummy tuck and that she lied about losing weight and then her husband is gay?

STALLWORTH: Well, let me ask, Joy. What pregnant woman you know loses 45 pounds in two weeks?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It was 29 in a month.

STALLWORTH: And you had her on this show questioning how much weight she lost.

BEHAR: I did.


ANDERSON: Ladies, ladies, please. Can`t we all just get along? By the way, we reached out to Bethenny Frankel`s rep for a comment on all of this, but we didn`t hear back by show time.

On Tuesday, we asked you to vote in our SHOWBIZ TONIGHT exclusive poll. I just received those final numbers. One with of the White House gatecrashers, Michaele Salahi, has been given a spot on "Real Housewives of D.C."

So we asked, "White House Gatecrashers: Is giving them a rewarding bad behavior?" Ninety-three percent say yes, it is. Only seven percent say no.

Check out some of the E-mails. Noreen from Wisconsin says, she`ll watch, "The Salahis are not being rewarded. If people don`t like it, don`t watch the show. I am."

But Maureen from West Virginia disgusted, "I will not be watching. They should be in jail. I hope their show fails."

That`s a wrap for SHOWBIZ TONIGHT. I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood. SHOWBIZ TONIGHT is now live at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Monday through Friday. And we are still TV`s most provocative entertainment news show seven days a week - that`s at 11:00 p.m. Eastern and Pacific. Take care.
