Stars gone wild without makeup. Jessica Simpson, Kim Kardashian, even Kathie Lee Gifford. SHOWBIZ TONIGHT reveals the secrets inside the no- makeup zone.

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


ANDERSON: Hi, there. I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood with big news breaking today - the big showbiz smack downs. It`s the vicious war of words between Jennifer Aniston and Bill O`Reilly.

And today, SHOWBIZ TONIGHT can tell you that it is getting ugly. It all started when Jen said, "Men, who needs them to be good moms?" Well, Bill O`Reilly went ballistic, saying Jen was destroying American society with her comments. So today, Jen`s back with a no-holds-barred smack down.

But, wait, there`s more smack down today. Bill O`Reilly`s explosive new Rosie O`Donnell smack down. Is Bill O`Reilly really calling Rosie`s new show on the Oprah Network a flop before it even airs?

Right now in New York, Cooper Lawrence. She is a syndicated radio show host and author of "The Cult of Celebrity." And in Hollywood is Carlos Diaz. He is a syndicated radio host.

OK. Carlos, Cooper, this firestorm started when Jennifer Aniston said women don`t have to settle with a man to have that child.

That`s when Bill O`Reilly really went on a wild rant against Jen, essentially saying that she`s sending the wrong message to young girls and that she is downplaying the importance of fathers which he feels is destructive to our society.

Well, today, Jen fired back telling, "Of course the ideal scenario for parenting is obviously two parents of a mature age. And, of course, many women dream of finding Prince Charming with fatherly instincts. But for those who have not yet found their Bill O`Reilly, I`m just glad science has provided a few other options."

Carlos, this is one of the nastiest smack downs and one of the funniest comebacks -


ANDERSON: I`ve seen in a long while. So who`s the winner here of this smack down?

DIAZ: They`re both right. I mean, you know, Jennifer Aniston`s right. I grew up in basically a single-parent household and I turned out OK. I mean, a lot of people turned out OK, you know.

They`re both right. Bill O`Reilly - what he said you need a man - it`s better to have two parents. It is. But Jennifer Aniston wins, and I`ll tell you why. Because she`s funny. That was a funny response. And stars need to look at this and say, "Oh, I get it." Instead of getting mean, be entertaining as an entertainer and you win. And Jennifer Aniston wins in this situation.

ANDERSON: I thought it was a brilliant way to approach it.

DIAZ: It`s brilliant. It`s hilarious. It`s great.

ANDERSON: Yes, absolutely. Cooper, what do you think? Should Jen have even gone there to begin with, with this counterattack? Or should she just have ignored the whole thing? What`s your take?

COOPER LAWRENCE, SYNDICATED RADIO HOST AND AUTHOR: It was so kind the way she gave him the finger, right? That`s her way of doing it. I love it.


LAWRENCE: No. I think - it seems like - this is the new Hollywood now. It`s all about the Twitter fight and the fighting through the media. And it`s all about celebrities, you know, getting on each other.

And usually Jennifer Aniston doesn`t partake in this sort of thing. So clearly, this is something she feels strongly about. And she`s not going to let Bill O`Reilly dictate how her fans should be. And it`s a strong statement he made, that she`s a degradation to society? I mean, come on, that`s a lot to put on her. So -

DIAZ: She`s also promoting a movie, though.

LAWRENCE: Exactly. That`s my next point. That`s my next point. Exactly.


ANDERSON: Stand up for that and her career. (UNINTELLIGIBLE) at the same time.

DIAZ: She`s like, I`m standing up for the cause and "The Switch" opens in theaters later this month. Thank you.


ANDERSON: OK. I`ve got to move to Bill O`Reilly`s smack down of, not Jennifer Aniston, but Rosie O`Donnell.

Bill slams Rosie in his blog today saying that her new show on Oprah`s new network is going to be a big old flop, "I simply do not believe she can entertain the folks at the level required to have them tune in every day. Rosie is angry. Rosie is damaged goods, a person who has alienated millions of Americans."

Yes, Rosie is a lightning rod for so many people, I agree, and Bill O`Reilly obviously not a fan. But Carlos, do you think - I mean, do you think this is going to be a flop already before it`s even on the air?

DIAZ: It`s really tough to tell because there are two Rosie O`Donnells. You`ve interviewed her. I`ve interviewed her. When she`s on and when she`s being gracious and she`s full of charm, there`s no one like her. She`s amazing.

When she is full of venom, there is no one meaner than she is. So she`s got to ask herself, "Which Rosie do I want to be in this new show?" I`m hoping she`s nice Rosie on TV. Save the venom for the radio. And I`m hoping Oprah gives her the same advice.

ANDERSON: Yes, because her talk show, when she did have a solo talk show, was so fun and lighthearted and so successful.

DIAZ: She was the queen of nice.

ANDERSON: She was the queen of nice.

DIAZ: Yes.

ANDERSON: She was not polarizing, so hopefully, she can get back to that. Hope she hasn`t gone too far to the other extreme.

DIAZ: Yes.

ANDERSON: OK. I do want to hear from you at home. It is our exclusive SHOWBIZ TONIGHT poll - "Rosie`s New Show on Oprah`s Network: Do you think it will be a hit or a miss?" Vote at E- mail us at

OK. Rosie`s new smack down isn`t the only smack down today. Lindsay Lohan`s mother, Dina, goes face-to-face with Matt Lauer on the "Today" show. And I`ve got to tell you, in Dina`s very first interview since Lindsay was thrown in jail, she is staunchly defending her daughter.

She sat down with Matt Lauer and Dina made it perfectly clear that she is happy the judge who sentenced Lindsay to jail and rehab has removed herself from Lohan`s case. Watch.


D. LOHAN: She went overboard and played serious hardball with Lindsay.

MATT LAUER, CO-HOST, THE "TODAY" SHOW: So you don`t think she deserved time in jail?

D. LOHAN: You know, not for this particular offense. She violated - actually didn`t violate but did violated - she was supposed to be - you know, she was in for just missing a couple of classes that she made up, and she was working at the time. So the judge went overboard and put her in serious lockdown.


ANDERSON: OK. Carlos, instead of blaming the judge, the California court system, the tabloids, the paparazzi, everybody but themselves -

DIAZ: Right.

ANDERSON: Shouldn`t Dina be saying, "Listen - yes. Lindsay made some mistakes. She messed up and she`s working on it. She`s moving on"?

DIAZ: How does it hurt Dina Lohan to be humble in this situation?


DIAZ: If she comes on the show and says, "You know what? I love my daughter with all my heart and she did some things wrong. She`s paid for what she did wrong and she`s getting better now. And when she gets out of rehab, she`s going to be a new person. And a year from now, we`re going to be applauding her for the changes she`s made." Why do you have to keep blaming other people? She`s not getting the message. Dina Lohan -

LAWRENCE: She keeps blaming other people because the alternative is blaming herself.

LAWRENCE: She`s the one that`s at fault.

DIAZ: Exactly.

LAWRENCE: She`s never once said, "I`m a terrible parent, I`m so sorry I`ve done wrong." It`s the media. It`s the judge. It`s the paparazzi. It`s the people around Lindsay.

DIAZ: It`s the propaganda.

LAWRENCE: It`s never Lindsay. It`s never her. And here`s another thing that really strikes me. You know, when Britney Spears fell apart, her parents didn`t go on tour.

You know, Michael Lohan was on CBS this morning. She`s on the "Today" show. Why are they even talking? Why don`t they just shut up? I don`t understand why they`re even telling us anything about their daughter. That`s all personal stuff they should - it just sort of says exactly how she`s being parented.

ANDERSON: Absolutely. And not once did she say that they are taking responsibility for what Lindsay has done, which is break the law -

DIAZ: Yes.

ANDERSON: Over and over again. And as we speak, Lindsay is serving her 90-day court-ordered time in rehab. She`s only been there for 12 days. But it turns out that she might get out early. Dina Lohan said her daughter will be leaving rehab soon. One person who thinks early exit is a really bad idea is, speaking of her father, Cooper, Lindsay`s father, Michael Lohan. Check out what he said this morning on "The Early Show."


MICHAEL LOHAN, FATHER OF LINDSAY LOHAN: That might be a mistake. But -

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Why would it be a mistake?

M. LOHAN: Because she needs the therapy. She needs to go through this - this period of reinventing herself and getting off the prescription drugs. It`s not that easy.


ANDERSON: OK. Carlos, he`s convinced she`s got a problem. So do you agree -

DIAZ: Yes.

ANDERSON: That it might be a mistake for her to get out of rehab?

DIAZ: Why have a 90-day program if you`re not going to honor it? I mean, it`s not like good behavior. And here`s the thing. Lindsay Lohan is an actress. She acts for a living so she will let you know what you want to know.

And actors are always talking about, what`s my motivation? Lindsay`s motivation? You act real good, you get out. You get free. That`s the motivation right there, you know.

And that`s the thing. She is acting in this situation. She needs to stay in for 90 days. I`m not being bitter. I`m not coming down on Lindsay. It`s for her own good. Get the rehab that you need.

ANDERSON: Yes. And not once did Dina admit that she has a problem at all. And she doesn`t even count the rehab she`s been in that are court ordered. She only counts the only rehab she`s been in at the time in 2007 she sent her.

Cooper, you know, can you even believe that Dina is blaming the tabloids, is blaming the courts, is blaming everybody for Lindsay`s tarnished image? It`s a bitter approach here.

LAWRENCE: I can believe it because the result is how much drugs and alcohol Lindsay`s doing. And like Carlos was saying, that`s not how rehab works. You don`t get out for good behavior. There`s a reason why it`s a 90-day program.

And by the way, most programs now, most good programs, they have a relapse system built into it because they know 90 days isn`t even enough.


LAWRENCE: So forget about 12 days. I mean, this is just one more of a series of rehabs that she`s going to have to be in.

ANDERSON: Yes. And Matt Lauer said why hasn`t she had success? And she said, "How do you define success in rehab?" He was like, "Avoid going back to rehab." All right. We`ll leave it there for now. Cooper Lawrence and Carlos Diaz, thank you so much.

All right. Moving on today, Hollywood gone wild. Heidi Montag`s plastic surgery gone wild. After 10 plastic surgeries, her plastic surgeon actually called her a hero.



DR. FRANK RYAN, HEIDI MONTAG`S PLASTIC SURGEON: This is what goes on. So I think Heidi actually, by being honest, is kind of - you know, kind of being brave to tell you the truth.


ANDERSON: Really? A hero? We are asking this guy the tough questions. Why was it OK for Heidi to have all those nips and tucks?

Then there are stars without makeup. Jessica, Kim, even Kathie Lee. Why did they decide to go all makeup-free?

And "Hollywood Gone Wild" over babies - the obsession with stars` babies. But is it getting too dangerous? 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: Kelsey Grammer confirms his girlfriend is pregnant with his fifth child. Justin Bieber donates proceeds from Nashville concert to flood relief.




UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Why are you so sad, honey?



CODY: Because I love Justin Bieber.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I can`t hear you.

CODY: Because I love Justin Bieber.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You`re crying because you love Justin Bieber?

CODY: Yes, that`s why I ran into my room.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You went in your room and cried because you love him?

CODY: Yes.


ANDERSON: This little girl has got a bad case of Bieber fever. Check out three-year-old Cody. Her mom videotaped Cody totally going wild over her favorite singer, Justin Bieber. This video all over YouTube and I`m happy to tell you, the story does have a really happy ending.

Welcome back to this special edition of SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, "Hollywood Gone Wild." I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood with A.J. Hammer in New York.

A.J., Justin Bieber makes a lot of people go wild.

A.J. HAMMER, HLN HOST: Yes. People have got the Bieber fever. And Brooke, I guess the folks over at Jimmy Kimmel saw Cody on YouTube because they booked her and her family on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

Now, the family thought they were going on the show to talk about how Cody`s crying has made her a big Internet star. But they got a huge surprise. There was no crying when Cody met her idol in person.


JUSTIN BIEBER, SINGER: I saw you on the video. You got a lot of views.

CODY: Did you see I cried about you?

BIEBER: I did see it. You cried a lot. Why were you so upset?

CODY: I don`t know. Because I didn`t get to see you all day?


HAMMER: All I can say is Cody is definitely one less lonely girl now.

ANDERSON: Yes. A.J., Hollywood goes wild over star baby photos. It is an all-out feeding frenzy. These days, taking their kids to school, going to the park on play dates or just picking something up at the grocery store can be a frightening experience for famous parents like Jennifer Lopez, Tobey Maguire, Jessica Alba and Jennifer Garner.

Right now, SHOWBIZ TONIGHT takes you inside of the celebrity baby obsession.


(voice-over): Bump watches. Madness about motherhood. The intense spotlight on all things celebrity baby begins with those very first photos and continues for some with a childhood spent dodging the cameras.

The pictures appear on countless blogs and magazines, analyzing what they`re wearing, who they look like and detailing their latest play dates like that of Gwen Stefani`s son, Kingston, and Tobey Maguire`s daughter, Ruby.

For the kids of some stars like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner`s four-year-old daughter, Violet, something as simple as a preschool pickup can even involve a police escort.

Many star parents like Jennifer Lopez plead for privacy. Lopez, whose twins, Max and Emmy, are two, slams the paparazzi for actions she says are intrusive like being chased by cars.

JENNIFER LOPEZ, SINGER AND ACTRESS: That`s dangerous, you know, when cars are chasing you and the baby`s in the car. You know, the minute you become a mom, you become ultra-overprotective.

ANDERSON: Ken Baker, who`s the executive news editor for "E," tells SHOWBIZ TONIGHT that paparazzi aggression can cross the line.

KEN BAKER, EXECUTIVE NEWS DIRECTOR, "E!": When you see the paparazzi cross that line and get in their faces, block their cars, block them from opening up their doors, that`s when it gets out of hand.

ANDERSON: But there are no laws in the United States protecting star kids, unlike in parts of Europe where it`s against the law to show the faces of celeb children without their parents` permission.

FRANK GRIFFIN, CO-OWNER, BAUER-GRIFFIN PHOTO AGENCY: I know they can somewhat sometimes look or sound like being wolves. But the reality is there`s a demand for those pictures.

ANDERSON: Frank Griffin is co-owner of the paparazzi agency Bauer- Griffin. He says their policy is generally not to chase the kids of stars and understands the concerns of celebrities, but argues they are better off accepting the inevitable public interest.

(on camera): What are your thoughts about the kids who unwittingly become celebrities themselves? Suri Cruise for one?

GRIFFIN: I think it`s probably the best they`re dealing with them. They`re going to be in the limelight. And I think it`s better to have the children become comfortable with that. They`re a lot safer.

ANDERSON (voice-over): Many stars even negotiate deals with major magazines to introduce their family to the world, hoping to defuse the intensity of the paparazzi.

"E`s" Ken Baker tells SHOWBIZ TONIGHT the laser focus on little ones comes with the territory. And when you`re a star, it`s impossible to have it both ways.

BAKER: Celebrities will bring their children out on the red carpets, "Look at us. We`re one big happy family." It incites interest and curiosity. And it might inspire paparazzi to come up to them and say, "Well, we saw them on the red carpet. They`re a cute family. I want to get them in real life now."

So once you open that up and turn on that faucet, you, as a celebrity, can`t decide when to turn it off.

ANDERSON: So why the insatiable appetite for all things celebrity including their bambinos?

BAKER: I`m a big believer that people are interested in celebrities because they`re really looking to see themselves or maybe a more famous, more beautiful, more rich version of themselves.

ANDERSON: A number of stars like Matt Damon have been able to successfully shield their youngsters to some extent.

MATT DAMON, ACTOR: The attention paid to celebrities` kids, I think, is a little misplaced and problematic, to tell you the truth. And I think we have just been very lucky.

ANDERSON: Lucky for now, but the public hunger for more images of cute famous kids shows no signs of letting up, hitting the stars and their children in a never-ending game of cat-and-mouse with the paparazzi.


HAMMER: All right. So what`s that saying, the only sure things in life are death and taxes, right? Well, in Hollywood, I think you can add plastic surgery to that list. Because now, I can tell you, there`s an all- out revolt against stars that get too many nips and tucks.

Heidi Montag, I`m talking to you. The Kardashians. Those wild and crazy "Jersey Shore" kids. From nobodies to somebodies, cashing in big time. The wild secrets of how much reality stars make.

Also this -


ANDERSON: His most prized photo is of Jackie Onassis, taken in 1971.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That`s my Mona Lisa. She has the Mona Lisa smile.


HAMMER: He`s been sued by Jackie O., punched by Marlon Brando. A revealing look at the original paparazzo. This is a special edition of SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, "Hollywood Gone Wild," on HLN News and Views.



UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The raptor having some fun with the cheerleaders. Whoa! Devoured!


HAMMER: The NBA`s Toronto Raptors mascot gone wild. I think he must have missed a feeding time, so he gobbled up a cheerleader. The raptor has been munching on cheerleaders at basketball games for a while now and the fans just eat it right up.

Welcome back to this special edition of SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, "Hollywood Gone Wild." I`m A.J. Hammer with Brooke Anderson in Hollywood.

ANDERSON: And now, the original paparazzo. He calls himself a photo journalist, specializing in celebrities. But Ron Galella is also known as the original paparazzo. Over his nearly 50 years in the biz, Galella has taken great risks to get that perfect shot.

He was even famously punched in the face by Marlon Brando, sued twice by Jackie Kennedy. I got the chance to speak with Ron Galella and he had some unbelievable stuff to say about today`s paparazzi gone wild and his career.


RON GALELLA, THE ORIGINAL PAPARAZZO: This was taken at the Kennedy benefit in New York. Mick Jagger was one of my favorite subjects.

ANDERSON (voice over): Ron Galella may be the ultimate paparazzo. Back in the day, he snapped every major celebrity.

GALELLA: This was Brigitte Bardot in her Saint Tropez house in France. I waited in the water next door. Steve McQueen, Nicole Warren, great expression, surprise.

ANDERSON: He pioneered the candid shot, captured when stars were least expecting it.

GALELLA: You have to hide to get the off-guard picture. By asking permission, you`re going to get the posed picture, which I don`t want. I don`t want the posed picture. Posed pictures are a dime a dozen. You get only smiles.

Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton had a yacht, the Kalizma. I photographed them with a 300 millimeter lens from a window. They never spotted me. Never.

ANDERSON: Galella is the subject of the new documentary, "Smash His Camera," which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. He`s taken over one million pictures. Gallery MAR in Park City, Utah put some of them on display.

(on camera): Look at these Michael Jackson photos.

GALELLA: That was so cool. At least, they helped him dry him and Janet.

ANDERSON: So this is one of your favorites. Wind-blown jacket.

(voice over): His most prized photo is of Jackie Onassis taken in 1971. He spotted her on a New York City street, then followed in a cab. When the driver blew his horn Jackie turned.

GALELLA: That`s my Mona Lisa, because she had that Mona Lisa smile.

ANDERSON: Galella`s celebrity encounters sometimes ended badly. He accused Marlon Brando of socking him in the jaw.

GALELLA: He knocked off my teeth.

ANDERSON: The next time he saw Brando, Galella came prepared.

GALELLA: With a helmet.

ANDERSON: At the age of 79, Galella still works occasionally colliding with a new breed of paparazzi. He says they play by different rules.

GALELLA: They think - they go too far. Nowadays, it`s all gang banging. They`re out for money.

ANDERSON: Galella says when it came to shooting celebrities, he followed another creed.

GALELLA: Shoot fast, get the surprised expression. If they say, "No more," I say yes and I leave.


ANDERSON: And Ron Galella`s life as a paparazzo is the subject of a documentary called "Smash His Camera".

HAMMER: And now, the SHOWBIZ lineup - here`s what`s coming up at the bottom of the hour on SHOWBIZ TONIGHT.

Hollywood gone wild on plastic surgery. But now, there`s a Hollywood plastic surgery backlash. How too many nips and tucks can hurt their careers.

Jessica, Kim, even Kathie Lee - stars gone wild without makeup.

And falling for fashion. Literally. I know it shouldn`t be funny, but it is. You`ve got to see these unbelievable slips, trips and falls on the catwalk. You`re watching a special edition of SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, "Hollywood Gone Wild," on HLN news and views.



FRANK: I think the wrong message is when people lie about plastic surgery, which is rampant in Hollywood. So I frankly think that Heidi is brave. She`s a hero for talking about this.


HAMMER: Now, on this special edition of SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, "Hollywood Gone Wild." A Heidi plastic surgery shocker. He called her a hero. Heidi Montag`s controversial plastic surgeon faces our tough questions.

Reality TV star riches. Why reality stars like Snooki and The Situation get paid big bucks for not doing a whole lot.

Celebrity goes bare. Stars are revealing makeup-less faces, why are so many taking it all off.

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


HAMMER: Welcome back to SHOWBIZ TONIGHT. It`s 30 minutes past the hour. I`m A.J. Hammer broadcasting tonight and every night from New York City.

ANDERSON: And I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood. This is a special edition of SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, "Hollywood Gone Wild." Right now, a SHOWBIZ special report, plastic pressure. What SHOWBIZ TONIGHT is about to reveal may shock you. But I say it`s about time.

For years, stars have tried to stop the hands of time by getting a few nips and tucks to look young so that they could keep getting jobs. But SHOWBIZ TONIGHT can now reveal that all that plastic is starting to backfire on them.

Are you listening, Heidi Montag? If not, you should be. Here`s SHOWBIZ TONIGHT`s Kareen Wynter.


UNIDENTIFIED ACTOR: Tell me what you don`t like about yourself.

KAREEN WYNTER, CNN ENTERTAINMENT CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): In Hollywood, it seems everybody is getting a nip here, a tuck there. Could it be for actresses too much of a good thing may actually be a turnoff when it comes to landing that perfect role?

JOHN PAPSIDERA, CASTING DIRECTOR: I think, you know, the Barbie- ization of people has certainly happened.

WYNTER: And it`s changed the casting game, says Emmy award-winning casting director, John Papsidera. He is shocked at the amount of plastic that has now plastered this industry. It has made his job tough.

PAPSIDERA: I feel like it`s fine in moderation. But I think the reality is that when plastic surgery or something artificial enters into that, it changes the way your eyebrow moves. It changes the way your lips move.

Those are the things that you`re looking to capture. And when it gets affected, it`s a bad - you know, side product.

WYNTER: Made even worse when you see young starlets like reality show vixen, Heidi Montag, getting tons of press for being plastic surgery`s new poster child. Montag recently made headlines for her whopping 10-procedure full-body makeover.

(on camera): What about actors who made their career on their plastic surgery, for example, Pamela Anderson?

PAPSIDERA: Pam started in this business in a career where she was running up and down the beach in a bathing suit, you know. So sure, it helped Pam. But it was a different time and it was a different era.

WYNTER (on camera): Papsidera says in this new age of technology with high def and those healthy doses of celebrity Web sites, it is no wonder many stars are so desperate to stay a cut above the rest.

PAPSIDERA: Never before in society have we had such access to pictures of celebrities. Everybody is on the Internet circling, you know, body parts.

WYNTER (voice-over): And coming in with unrealistic checklists, says plastic surgeon to the stars, Dr. Linda Lee, who had her own reality TV show, "Dr. 90210."

DR. LINDA LEE, PLASTIC SURGEON: We absolutely have to draw a line. We are the gatekeepers.

WYNTER: Dr. Linda Lee says that means cutting them off.

LEE: I feel sorry for the actresses that go too far, because you can tell. And somebody needs to give a reality check saying, "Hey, you know what? It`s not real anymore." And in order to be really marketable, you need to be a real person.

WYNTER: So here`s the real deal from a top casting director.

PAPSIDERA: It certainly is frustrating when you`re looking for that needle in a haystack person and there`s some impediment like plastic surgery that ends up, you know, losing them the role.

WYNTER: And the lesson from that loss? Less may be more.


HAMMER: Yes. Well, one person who certainly may be in Hollywood having a little trouble getting a role because she overdid it, that would be Heidi Montag. Heidi Montag did the unthinkable. She had 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day.

Right after her surgeries, Heidi told "People" magazine that she went to such extreme measures to change her appearance because she wanted to become quote, "the best me."

Well after her surgeries, Heidi received a lot of backlash and a lot of people wonder why someone would go to such extremes. When I spoke with Heidi`s plastic surgeon, Dr. Frank Ryan, he defended Heidi and he gave us his perspective on what seemed to me like a wild choice.


HAMMER: All right. Well, let me rundown some of the specifics here, a couple of procedures you performed on Heidi. She had breast implants, a nose job revision, Botox injections, liposuction, a mini-brow lift, chin reduction. And in her interview with ABC, Heidi talked specifically about the liposuction. Let`s take a look at that.


HEIDI MONTAG, REALITY TV STAR: I had my legs on liposuction on the inside and outside. But it wasn`t really to take out the fat. It was more just to contour the legs.

And then I had my back scooped out a little bit to help give a curvier look and then a little bit on the sides, too.



HAMMER: OK. Dr. Ryan, you know, this was clearly not an unattractive, overweight young woman. Did you perhaps advise her to go to the gym or try Pilates or adjust her diet or any number of other options before resorting to surgery?

RYAN: This is why I`m doing these interviews. Yes, she already does that. No one is apparently aware of that. She does yoga. She eats well. I`ve known her for several years. She does all that already.

And frankly, that`s another myth that you just propagated, that liposuction is for obese people. It`s not for obese people. It`s for people who are in good shape that already work out, just like Heidi.

HAMMER: So what you`re saying is she was doing all of these things, not achieving the results she wanted. You advised her that that perhaps is the first best way to do it. But in the end, she ended up having the procedures with you because she just wasn`t getting where she wanted to be.

FRANK: Yes. More or less. I mean, we`re at the last rung in the ladder, I say to people. You do your working out. Do your - you know, good nutrition, et cetera, et cetera. If there are a few localized areas that can`t be removed with these other methods, that`s where liposuction comes into play.

HAMMER: You did 10 procedures on Heidi. Did you turn her down on any more procedures?

RYAN: That was about it. I mean, you see, a lot of those procedures - about five of them could have been in the office - you know, Botox, fat grafting, the ears, the brow lift - all those could have been done under local anesthesia in the office, so it could have been just a handful of procedures.

It just makes more sense for the patient to do them together assuming it is safe, which it is, for a young, healthy 23-year-old.

HAMMER: Well, Dr. Ryan, you gave that interview to "Radar Online" and you said you consider yourself and Heidi heroes in all of this. Let`s take a look at that.


RYAN: I think the wrong message is when people lie about plastic surgery which is rampant in Hollywood. I mean, you know, there is another reality star, older than Heidi, that gets routinely Botox injections in her cheeks and lips and has her breast and liposuction, buttock augmentation, get cellulite treatments and god knows what else.

That`s sort of the way it is, you know. So I frankly think Heidi is brave. She is a hero for talking about this. And frankly, a little bit, I am, too, because I knew this would sort of happen.


HAMMER: All right. Dr. Ryan, I hear what you`re saying, but can you understand why when people hear you use the word "hero" in this context, they kind of think it`s nuts, and it`s a strong word.

RYAN: It`s a strong word, I agree. And listen to it again. You`re right, it is a strong word. But I mean, I guess how you - maybe "brave" is a better word. I mean, really, all of this stuff we`re talking about right now, frankly, I would rather be at my office right now just doing surgery.

So it has opened up a whole can of worms. And I think it`s partly just because Heidi was honest whereas other people are not. That`s all there is to it.

HAMMER: Do you think she needs to be getting psychological counseling?

RYAN: No. Heidi does not need psychological counseling. I mean, obviously, a lot of this, as I mentioned, was a very well-thought out, calculated career move. And look what`s it`s done. Many, many, many, many people are talking about Heidi on a daily basis now.

HAMMER: Well, I do appreciate you taking the time. I think we have a lot of people who are disagreeing. But you know, we will all respect each other`s opinions, I guess. Dr. Frank Ryan, we appreciate you being here tonight. Thanks.


ANDERSON: Stars cashing in on reality TV. Snooki, The Situation, Kate Gosselin. The wild and shocking secrets behind their reality TV riches.

Stars without makeup. Why do so many Hollywood celebrities dare to go bare?

Also this -


JEANNE MOOS, CNN CORRESPONDENT: If there`s one thing that can bring a model to her knees, it`s falling to her knees.


ANDERSON: Oh, admit it. You sometimes laugh when you see models fall on the runway. Kind of hurts though. I`m showing you the wildest wipeouts on the catwalk. This is a special edition of SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, "Hollywood Gone Wild," on HLN news and views.



POLIZZI: Who hits a girl like that?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You`re bleeding all over.


HAMMER: That was just seconds after Snooki from MTV`s "Jersey Shore" got punched in the face at a bar. Probably not a good experience for her. But trust us, Snooki is having the last laugh.

Welcome back to the special edition of SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, "Hollywood Gone Wild." I`m A.J. Hammer in New York with Brooke Anderson in Hollywood.

And now, reality stars like Snooki are cashing in big-time from their fame, Brooke.

ANDERSON: Right now, a SHOWBIZ TONIGHT special report that will make your head spin. Why do reality show stars like Snooki get paid such big bucks for doing - well, doing kind of nothing? Here`s SHOWBIZ TONIGHT`s Kareen Wynter.


KAREEN WYNTER, CNN ENTERTAINMENT CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," "The Girls Next Door," "The Hills" and now, "Jersey Shore" - all hit reality TV shows that turned nobodies into rich somebodies.

DEANNA PAPPAS, REALITY TV STAR, "THE BACHELORETTE": Right after the "Bachelorette," a lot of people reached out to me. And you know, I had a lot of fun. I did a lot of corresponding for "Extra." I`ve done some stuff for "The Insider." I hosted my own show for a year on Lifetime. And of course, I want more.

WYNTER: You remember Deanna Pappas, right? She was a contestant on "The Bachelor" and was "The Bachelorette." It`s been years since she did both shows but the cash is still rolling in.

PAPPAS: I do tons of public appearances. I mean, I was just in Anaheim this week and they did, like a Comic Con down in Anaheim. Sometimes you do interviews and you get paid.

WYNTER (on camera): Some reality TV stars like Deanna Pappas have turned their 15 minutes of fame into a financial empire with lucrative deals that have made them mini-moguls.

LACEY ROSE, WRITER, "FORBES" MAGAZINE: Gracing a red carpet before an event can earn you tens of thousands of dollars. A clothing line can net you hundreds of thousands. And a perfume could earn you millions of dollars in some cases.

WYNTER (voice-over): "Forbes" magazine writer, Lacey Rose has covered reality TV stars and their fortunes. She says not all reality stars are created equal. Only some have mastered the media and the art of selling themselves.

ROSE: I think right now, the "Jersey Shore" kids are really hot. I think you`ll see more from Lauren Conrad. I think you saw her sort of create this momentum behind her brand with "The Hills."

I think we`ll continue to see her do things with that. I think - you know, love her or hate her, I think it`s not the end of Heidi Montag. We`ll see a lot more from her.

WYNTER: And this is the man who`s helped many of your favorite reality TV stars make cuckoo bucks, Marc Marcuse. He runs the management company that represents reality TV stars who are looking to turn their fame into long-term success. Marcuse is currently working with Snooki of MTV`s juggernaut show, "Jersey Shore."

MARC MARCUSE, REEL MANAGEMENT: Snooki is out of control in more ways than one right now. She`s booking very, very high-priced gigs and doing quite well. You know, so we`re really happy that she`s breaking the mold on reality TV and sort of bringing a new kind of level to the whole thing.

WYNTER: And if Snooki can become an in-demand star overnight, then American dream is alive and well, at least for those who are willing to be on a reality show.


ANDERSON: Again, that was SHOWBIZ TONIGHT`s Kareen Wynter. And A.J., there is no shortage of examples of celebrities going wild in reality television.

HAMMER: Yes. You`re not kidding, Brooke. But these days, it seems some stars don`t need a reality TV show to take a walk on the wild side. We`ve witnessed an all-out invasion of stars without makeup. Talk about taking it all off.

SHOWBIZ TONIGHT was just overwhelmed by stars who insisted on showing us what they look like without any extras on their faces or their eyes or their lips.

Seeing the stars without all the icing is wild especially in Hollywood when, you know, perfection is the name of the game. Let me tell you, an absolute stars-without-makeup frenzy broke out and now you get to see them for yourself.


HAMMER (voice-over): No powder, no mascara, no makeup. Kim Kardashian, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb joined the growing list of gorgeous celebrities daring to go bare.

GWEN FLAMBERG, BEAUTY DIRECTOR, "US WEEKLY": Going bare will lower that expectation of what we`ve come to believe perfection is. In Hollywood, the standard of perfection is completely manufactured.

HAMMER: But that trend is changing big time. It`s time for plastic surgery princess, Heidi Montag and her boobs to move over and make room for a new tribe of strong, natural, fiercely beautiful women who aren`t afraid to show their true selves.

GIFFORD: Here I am, bare and unafraid.

HAMMER: On NBC`s "Today" show this morning, co-host, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb revealed their makeup-free selves to the world live for the very first time.

GIFFORD: Here it is. This is us.

HODA KOTB, CO-HOST, "TODAY" SHOW: Tight shot, please.

HAMMER: Kathie Lee says she got the idea after Rosie O`Donnell made the provocative claim that Kathie Lee had gone too far with having work done. Kathie Lee wanted to prove Rosie wrong and invited her in on the makeup free action. Well, Rosie accepted and threw in a little bed head for good measure.

GIFFORD: She thought I had gone too far.

ROSIE O`DONNELL, TV PERSONALITY: I don`t believe I said that. Did I say that?

KOTB: Oh, yes, you did.

GIFFORD: Yes, yes, yes.

O`DONNELL: It wasn`t like I didn`t recognize you. I just thought you looked different.

GIFFORD: Thank you. I love you, Rosie. I love you. Thank you.

O`DONNELL: Honey, I wasn`t -

HAMMER: Well, thanks to Kathie Lee and Hoda, all of the ladies of "Today" went bare for the very first time.

MEREDITH VIEIRA, CO-HOST, THE "TODAY" SHOW: This is my face. Like it or not.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: This is the real me.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Scaring little children at home right now.

FLAMBERG: Older women like Kathie Lee and Hoda taking off their makeup on the "Today" show, that`s to inspire people that older, you know, is not necessarily less glamorous.

HAMMER: No matter what age, stars are taking a stand against manufactured Hollywood. Check out this brand new photo of Kim Kardashian in "Life and Style Weekly." Totally au natural. What a shock for renowned glam queen.

FLAMBERG: Over the years, Kim has been wearing more and more makeup and it`s really surprising but also super exciting to see her shed out of that makeup and become more real, and more of a real beauty inspiration to girls.

HAMMER: Kim tells "Life and Style," she did it because "I`m happy with myself and this is who I am. As much as it`s fun to glam up, the most important thing is to be comfortable in your own skin with or without makeup."

Kim`s no makeup coming out comes just weeks after Jessica Simpson became the real no makeup trendsetter when she shocked everyone by daring to bare it all on the cover of "Marie Claire."

"Us Weekly`s" beauty and lifestyle director, Gwen Flamberg tells SHOWBIZ TONIGHT Jessica has been criticized for her looks over the last few years and this cover proved her critics wrong.

FLAMBERG: I think that Jessica Simpson really wants to be real. She wants to show women that you don`t have to go under the knife, that you can be proud of exactly who you are.

HAMMER: Jessica tells "Marie Claire," "I don`t have anything to prove anymore. What other people think of me is not my business."

But, whether Jessica and Kim and Kathie Lee and Hoda realize it, they are starting a powerful trend for women everywhere.

FLAMBERG: Once you do it, you really get a ton of strength and ton of power that you don`t need makeup to feel beautiful. And that`s the message. Glamour is something that comes from inside.


HAMMER: Well, I don`t know about you, Brooke, but I thought these famous women just looked great with or without makeup.

ANDERSON: I completely agree, A.J. And you know, maybe some models should take note. You know, they strut their stuff on the runway, but sometimes, even supermodels have trouble walking that runway.


MOOS: If there`s one thing that can bring a model to her knees, it`s falling to her knees.


ANDERSON: You have got to see some of the wildest wipeouts on the catwalk ever. This is a special edition of SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, "Hollywood Gone Wild," on HLN news and views.



GAIL LEIBOWITZ, REALITY TV STAR, "SUNSET DAZE": My biggest fantasy is getting the Academy Award. Making a speech and - I want to thank my mother and father, you know, and my son for doing my hair.


HAMMER: This sassy sexy senior says, hey, bring on the cameras. Forget those 4:00 p.m. early bird dinners and bingo games. So can you picture your grandparents hooking up, getting tattoos?

It`s the "Golden Girls" meets "Jersey Shore." The wild reality shore called "Sunset Daze." It is a whole lot of fun.

Well, top models go bottoms up. Who knew walking on the runway could be so wild, Brooke?

ANDERSON: Yes. Think about it, A.J. The lights, cameras and those sky-high stilettos. It sometimes makes for a dangerous mix, resulting in fashion road kill.

Here is Jeanne Moos for SHOWBIZ TONIGHT.


JEANNE MOOS, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice over): If there`s one thing that can bring a model to her knees, it`s falling to her knees. How New York kicked off fashion week -

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Not once, but twice.

MOOS: Less than five second after Agnes Dina arose to applause in the "Fashion for Haiti Relief" show, down she went again. A perfect excuse to recall our favorite falls, to recall our favorite sprawls.

From catching a heel in the pants to falling through the runway, apparently unaware the center was only paper, someone ran to her rescue. No one helped at the time the great Naomi Campbell went down.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Get a photo! Let`s get a photo!

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Idiots. What is wrong with people?

MOOS: Naomi made her fall into an insurance commercial.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Because Naomi Campbell is smart.

MOOS: Jay Alexander teaches models how to walk and how not to. Carmen Electra demonstrated how not to, and the lady running to her rescue followed in her footfalls.

Most of the time, you can blame the high heels. What we have here is a potential shoe emergency. A beaded spat come undone could undo a model here at the Pamella Roland show. But the shoes here are tame compared to the late Alexander McQueen`s.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Did you see the shoes for his show last year?

MOOS: Armadillo shoes, they were dubbed.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: There were a couple of girls who wouldn`t do the show because it`s just so dangerous.

MOOS: After falling twice in seven-inch heels at the show for Haiti relief, what a relief. Take those heels off. We`ve seen Miss USAs fall twice in recent years.


MOOS: We`ve seen models conk their heads. We`ve seen a martial arts performer make a hole in the runway, then watched the model who followed his act fall in. But there`s one classic -

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: My mom`s watching.


MOOS: Leaves even the models chortling. Maybe it`s the Washington, D.C., anchors -

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Never quite recovered after that. There she goes again.

MOOS: Preserved forever on YouTube, replaying and laughing.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You try walking in those shoes.


MOOS: Laughing and replaying. Fashion can stagger more than just the imagination.


ANDERSON: That was CNN`s Jeanne Moos for SHOWBIZ TONIGHT. And A.J., I`m surprised there aren`t more runway spills. I mean, these women really managed to pull off a fierce walk despite wearing some serious high heels.

HAMMER: Yes, they do. And I`ve got to tell you, I feel a little guilty because it is fun to watch and chuckle when they do take a little spill. Well, that is it for this special edition of SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, "Hollywood Gone Wild." I`m A.J. Hammer in New York.

ANDERSON: And I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood. Take care.
