A.J. HAMMER, HOST: Hello. I`m A.J. Hammer in New York. Tonight, Travolta`s new war. A second man steps forward accusing John Travolta of sexual battery as Travolta`s team starts to fight for John`s innocence and his reputation.
Also, tonight the return of the Jonas Brothers. Joe Jonas gets real with SHOWBIZ. Is he about to blow up as a reality TV star? Are the Jonas Brothers ready to record a new album now? Joe Jonas is right here for a headline-making SHOWBIZ newsmaker interview.
Jwoww`s brand-new shore secrets. Jwoww tells all to SHOWBIZ TONIGHT about The Situation`s life after rehab. And is it torture living with a pregnant Snooki in the no-party zone? SHOWBIZ TONIGHT is one-on-one with Jwoww.
SHOWBIZ TONIGHT starts right now.
Hello. I`m A.J. Hammer with Travolta`s new war. John Travolta is at the center of a huge fire storm tonight accused of sexual battery by two massage therapists.
Travolta`s reps say the outrageous lawsuit is completely fabricated and they are ready to do whatever it takes to squash it.
Well, tonight, for the very first time, we`re hearing from the lawyer for the men accusing Travolta of being a sexual predator. Why are they coming forward now? And how do they see this fight against one of America`s most beloved actors?
JOHN TRAVOLTA, ACTOR: I`m kind of tired. I can use a foot a massage myself.
SAMUEL JACKSON, ACTOR: You`d better back off.
HAMMER: Massages are probably the last thing "Pulp Fiction" John Travolta wants to hear about right now. Today, Travolta finds himself fighting, not one, but two anonymous masseurs who are suing him.
They are accusing Travolta of committing assault and sexual battery against them during few separate massage sessions.
ALEXIS TERESZCUK, "RADAR ONLINE": This is becoming such a huge headache for John Travolta.
HAMMER: One anonymous masseur listed in court papers as John Doe No. 1 was the first to file a lawsuit against John Travolta.
Now, a second anonymous masseur called John Doe No. 2 has joined in with his own allegations against Travolta. The masseurs have the same attorney who is saying there may be more.
TERESZCUK: The attorney says that he has been contacted by people from all over the country.
HAMMER: But Travolta is not taking this lying down. He`s denying both accusations and he`s promising an all-out war.
TERESZCUK: Not only John, but his pit bull attorney, Marty Singer, has said that both John Does and the attorney are going to regret filing these lawsuits.
HAMMER: Today, SHOWBIZ TONIGHT obtained the explosive lawsuit that includes new shocking claims from both accusers. This is about all we can show of it.
TERESZCUK: These lawsuits are really raunchy. They have very specific graphic details.
HAMMER: Radar Online`s Alexis Tereszcuk tells SHOWBIZ TONIGHT each masseur described separate incidents where they say they were hired to give Travolta a massage. But they claimed, in both instances, Travolta wanted something more.
TERESZCUK: Both men are saying that Travolta tried to touch them in their private areas and that he tried to get them to touch him in his private areas.
HAMMER: John Travolta`s attorney tells SHOWBIZ TONIGHT both accusers are lying. He says, quote, "This second anonymous claim is just as absurd and ridiculous as the first one. Our client will be fully vindicated in court on both of these absurd and fictional claims."
TERESZCUK: John Travolta`s attorney is accusing these people of straight- up lying.
HAMMER: Travolta`s attorney says his client wasn`t even in Los Angeles on January 16th, the date and location of the day of the first alleged incident.
In fact, today, TMZ reports it has witnesses, a receipt and a photo that place John Travolta at Mr. Chow Restaurant, all the way in New York City on that date.
TERESZCUK: The two sides are definitely going to battle over the location of the alleged incident.
HAMMER: Two alleged rubdowns that are turning into fierce legal smack- downs.
No question this is getting fierce. On the one hand you have one of Hollywood`s most beloved actors. On the other, two unknown men leveling such disturbing and really serious charges.
And tonight, for the very first time, we`re hearing from the attorney for those men. I want to bring in SHOWBIZ TONIGHT`s Kareen Wynter who just today interviewed Okorie Okorocha, who is the attorney representing these two men who are accusing John Travolta of sexual battery.
Now, Kareen, you just spoke with the accuser`s attorney. He really gave you such incredibly detailed accounts of both the alleged incidents that he says involve Travolta and these male massage therapists.
KAREEN WYNTER, SHOWBIZ TONIGHT CORRESPONDENT: A.J., he did sure spell it out for me. In fact, he claims that, in two incidents, Travolta turned a massage appointed into an unwanted sexual advance. Watch.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
OKORIE OKOROCHA, ATTORNEY: My client tells him, well, I guess, get on the massage table, put the sheet over him. The guy`s kicking it off with his legs.
Travolta keeps taking it off. My client keeps putting the sheet back on. Travolta keeps taking it off saying it`s sticky, it`s uncomfortable.
You know, my client doesn`t know what to do. He has a high level of responsibility in terms of his job there, and he`s trying to, you know, remain professional. But Travolta goes into - well, he likes a lot of glute work and his glutes done, meaning his buttocks.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
WYNTER: Now, in this interview with Mr. Okorocha, boy did he go into so many details regarding things that are in the lawsuit.
And the incidents that were filed back two incidents from January 16th as well as the 28th. I asked Marty Singer, Travolta`s attorney, to respond to this. And he had a mouthful to say.
First of all, unlike Mr. Okorocha`s claims that John Travolta was in Los Angeles at this time, well, Singer said, "We can prove it. That`s absolutely ridiculous."
In fact, he is going to be providing plane tickets that show John Travolta apparently left Los Angeles on the 15th, flew to New York for a job, a movie that he got there on the 15th for pre-production of a film.
That on the 16th, he actually had a wardrobe fitting that he`s going to providing a set photo as well and that he even dined at a New York night spot, a New York restaurant, on the 15th.
So he says he has proof that places John Travolta on the east coast. He also responded to claims that Mr. Okorocha said that there are so many more people just waiting to come forward and we`re just vetting them right now.
Well, Singer said that`s also baloney. He said, "You know how many people contacted me each day wanting to sue this person, wanting to sue that person. Anyone can do it," and that he`s not at all concerned.
And finally, A.J., he was also - Marty Singer, Travolta`s attorney - adamant about the fact that he claims that no lawsuits have ever been filed against Travolta, any of that have even been settled nevertheless as Mr. Okorocha contends. So it`s getting quite messy here.
HAMMER: Yes. And it surprises me that the attorney, Mr. Okorocha, would know about any lawsuits filed against John Travolta.
Let me bring in Sunny Hostin, legal contributor for "In Session" on Tru TV. What about that? Because this guy is saying that this has been a pattern of behavior with John Travolta. How would he know that?
SUNNY HOSTIN, LEGAL CONTRIBUTOR, "IN SESSION": Yes, that doesn`t ring true to me, only because if there were indeed settlements, those are typically confidential, especially in any case involving sexual allegations.
And so that seems to be a bit strange. And we know that lawsuits are sort of public record. And given the fact that John Travolta, as you mentioned, is this beloved actor in Hollywood, so well known, any time a lawsuit like that would have hit the clerk`s office at the courthouse, we would all be talking about it.
HAMMER: Sure. And that`s probably what happened here and why we`re talking about it now. Kareen, the accusers` attorney also told you that he wants to get Travolta on the stand to answer to these claims, didn`t he?
WYNTER: He did, A.J. In fact, he says that when that happens, he will have witnesses. Watch what he said.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
OKOROCHA: Travolta will have to get on the stand and answer my questions as to where he was. And I will parade the 100 or so witnesses that we`ve located so far.
WYNTER (on camera): More people are coming forward?
(END VIDEO CLIP)
HAMMER: Yes. Sunny, obviously this is a high-profile case. And now, the word is all over television. Couldn`t that, in fact, bring more and more people out to make claims, true or not?
HOSTIN: Well, it could, certainly. I mean, there are those people, those gold-diggers that are going to come out there and perhaps make allegations that aren`t true.
But I have to tell you, A.J., sometimes, when you`re talking about victims, true victims, of sexual assault there is strength in numbers.
And in my experience, having prosecuted a lot of sex crime cases, when you have one accuser come forward, other victims do feel more comfortable and confident coming forward, so that kind of cuts both ways for John Travolta.
HAMMER: All right. Well, I do want to make clear that all of these are just allegations at this point. And the lawsuits are filed by unnamed accusers.
SHOWBIZ TONIGHT did reach out to Travolta`s attorney, Marty Singer, about these accusations. I want to read to you exactly what he told us about this.
He said, "The second anonymous claim is just as absurd and ridiculous as the first one. The attorney who filed the lawsuit on behalf of the second anonymous client who does not want to disclose his name although he is required to do so was notified that his first client`s claims were totally false and fabricated, since our client was not in L.A. when anonymous Doe No. 1 claims he interacted with John Travolta."
Well, there you have it. I guess we`re going to have to continue to watch this play out. Kareen Wynter, Sunny Hostin, thank you both.
HAMMER: Moving on now to judging Stern. Tonight, Howard Stern responding to the explosive claim by a parents` group that he`s going to sleaze up "America`s Got Talent."
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
HOWARD STERN, RADIO HOST: I was very aware that "AGT" already exists, and I`m not there to disrupt a show people already love.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
HAMMER: Is the newest "America`s Got Talent" judge way too racy for the family show? Or is he just what it needs?
HAMMER: And the return of the Jonas. Joe Jonas is a pop star and actor. And now, he`s taking on reality TV in a brand-new dating show.
Joe Jonas is blowing up. He`s right here with me tonight in an amazing headline-making SHOWBIZ newsmaker interview. This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
CHRISTINA AGUILERA, "THE VOICE" JUDGE: If that`s how you have to get points - if that`s how you have to get points -
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I just want to say I love you, Christina.
(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
(END VIDEO CLIP)
HAMMER: Well, with a diss and a jab, the battle of "The Voice" judges rages on. That`s Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera going head to head in the judges` seats for NBC`s hit singing competition. But did their spicy feud actually sour America`s votes?
Welcome back to SHOWBIZ TONIGHT. Well, more on that big judges feud at "The Voice" in just a moment. But first, judging Stern. The great Howard Stern is certainly no stranger to big battles himself.
And in just a couple of days, he is making his big reality competition show debut as the newest judge for NBC`s "America`s Got Talent." Now, other than a few clips here and there, we haven`t seen Howard in his new role yet.
Still, a TV watch dog group, the Parents Television Council, is already calling for an all-out boycott of the show and its sponsors until the notorious shock-jock is given the boot. Like that will happen.
Let me bring in Kim Serafin who is the senior editor for "In Touch Weekly" magazine. All right, Kim. The PTC has reached out to sponsors of "AGT" - "America`s Got Talent" with a warning asking if Stern`s "decades-long penchant for profanity, his affinity for degrading and sexualizing women, and his proclivity for vulgar and explicit dialogue" really reflects the show`s values, saying Stern shouldn`t be given a shot at this because he let us know who he is and what he`s about with his years on the radio.
Look, I think they are being so absolutely, ridiculously narrow minded about who Howard Stern really is. But Kim, do you agree with the PTC`s claim that he is bad for "AGT"?
KIM SERAFIN, SENIOR EDITOR, "IN TOUCH WEEKLY": WAS - what a surprise. You know, you expect this from the Parents Television Council. They`ve gone after shows and people far less offensive than Howard Stern.
And Howard Stern is a perfect person for the show. He understands how to give his opinion, how to judge. He also understands the media. He knows what the right medium is to make lewd comments and sexual comments about women. And he does that on his radio show. He does that for his fans.
He also understands what "America`s Got Talent" is and he understands that is not the place to make those kind of comments. So you have to give him some credit.
He is in this business. He makes millions of dollars because he understands the media. He understands when to turn it on and when to turn it off. So look, it`s great publicity for everyone.
HAMMER: And I think he is looking forward to people getting this side of him because, quite frankly, you know, there are a lot of people who don`t know what he`s all about because they don`t hear him every day.
They have one opinion of him based on what they`ve heard about him. Howard is saying he`s not going for the shock-jock role that he`s known for on this show. That`s his other gig.
I want you to listen to what he told us at the "America`s Got Talent" New York auditions. Roll that.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
HOWARD STERN, "AMERICA`S GOT TALENT" JUDGE: I was very aware that "AGT" already exists. And I`m not there to disrupt a show that people already love. I`m only there to try to head some sort of guidance to the contestants and be a rational judge. I don`t want to get in the way of that process, but it`s been a learning process.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
HAMMER: So he says he wants to make the most of this. And I know people who don`t listen to him regularly and do have that antiquated view of him will see Howard in a whole new light.
But Kim, at the end of the day, what do you think`s going to happen? Is he going to pull it off?
SERAFIN: I think he will because I think he understands it. And just as he was saying, he`s coming into an entity that already exists. This is not his creation.
He understands this has a fan base and he understands he has to kind of rein things in and do something different than he does on his radio show and appeal to a different audience.
So I think he`s going to be able to do that. This guy has been able to conquer so many different mediums so I`m not worried about him at all. And I think he`ll gain a new fan base from it.
HAMMER: I agree 100 percent and I think he`s going to be great at it. And I think, as I said, people will have an entirely new view of him if they don`t know what he`s all about.
Got to ask about the other judges that are really stirring things up. They`re over at "The Voice" on NBC. Let me show you the one big clash with Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera, and this is just one of them.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
AGUILERA: Your beautiful wife and your daughter and family are here tonight. And I just thought, you know, the lyrical connotation was a little derogatory towards women, but you know, all in all, it was good fun.
ADAM LEVINE, "THE VOICE" JUDGE: You know, the - ain`t one is life getting at you, things bringing you down. You know, we`re not referring to women. We`re referring to everything.
AGUILERA: They`re saying you`re having girl problems, so it is a girl.
LEVINE: Yes, it`s called a metaphor.
(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
(END VIDEO CLIP)
HAMMER: All right. Well, the show just crowned their new winner last night. But there are actually people out there today who are saying that the judges` tiff distracted from the win.
It may have even lost their team some votes because neither Christina`s nor Adam`s team won. Kim, do you think the feud has actually been bad for the show?
SERAFIN: I don`t think it`s been bad for the show at all, because I think even if you weren`t watching the show, you heard about Tony Lucca. You heard about Mouseketeer past between Christina Aguilera and Tony Lucca and the problems between Adam and Christina.
And I think people might even have wondered was this something that was maybe accentuated for the show and put on a little bit more because it was great TV. It was really fun to watch. And I don`t think it affected the voting.
SERAFIN: I mean, Jermaine was great and I think he certainly deserved to win.
HAMMER: Definitely he deserved to win. All right. Kim Serafin, thanks as always.
Moving now to Jwoww unplugged. What is life like with Snooki now that she has traded in the fist-pump for the baby bump? Well, Snooki`s BFF and roommate, Jwoww, right here tonight. She`s going to tell us how Mama Snooks is doing in the pregnancy no-party zone.
Plus, Sandra`s new life. SHOWBIZ TONIGHT reveals the incredible brand-new details about Sandra Bullock`s life with her son, Louis. What is single mother hood really like for Sandra? This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN.
Gossip Girl`s Chace Crawford tells SHOWBIZ TONIGHT about what it`s like being a new uncle.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
CHACE CRAWFORD, ACTOR: I mean, one day your sister`s huge. The next, there`s a new human being. So I mean, they`re just changing so rapidly, too.
It is life-changing being around that and seeing her kind of be a mother. I know she sort of jumped decades in maturity above me now even though she`s my younger sister.
So yes, you know, the diaper changing and the feeding. Luckily, I don`t have to breast-feed. But it`s - you know, that`s not really in the uncle contract, is it? So having a good time with him. I`m like, what does he do now? He just sleeps.
HAMMER: Tonight inside the fascinating life of one of our own HLN stars, "MORNING EXPRESS`" Robin Meade. Everybody knows in addition to being a morning TV anchor, Robin is a country music singer.
Well, tonight, GAC Network just featured Robin on their popular show, "Day Jobs," which follows country singers back to the jobs they did before they became celebs.
And yes, they had Robin go back to her old college job. She was a factory worker in her home of Ohio. Can you believe this? Robin`s mom, who is still working at that factory, was Robin`s floor manager back then. Watch.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
ROBIN MEADE, ANCHOR, "MORNING EXPRESS": I`m going to work at my mom`s factory. That`s where she works. It`s not exactly the place where I worked, but I did do a lot of factory work.
The funny thing is, as a news anchor, I have to be so balanced in presenting stories to make sure I get both sides.
I`ll tell you what, I had the perfect upbringing for my job because my dad was in unions working on the factory floor. My mom was always in management, and I could see both sides of the story.
Whatever that thing was, we die cut the thing and put it in the thing. I don`t know what the language is.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: More, more, more. You can be a little faster. Pick up the pace. We ought to make a career out of grinding.
MEADE: OK. OK. My mom is all about that her technique is the best, and it probably is. But maybe there are other techniques.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Maybe if you stand in front like this and you`re going over. Just because she`s an adult, my telling Robin what to do has not stopped.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
HAMMER: Perfect. Robin is with me tonight. Robin, I have got to ask, what was it like working with your mom?
MEADE: Well, you know, I was a little nervous going back to work with my mom for a number of reasons. For one, she used to be a plant manager. So she still has that manager blood.
So even though, you know, we were going to do this for a TV show, she, I knew, was going to boss me around and really put me to the test.
The woman can work circles around me, seriously, even in her 60s. And I knew she wasn`t going to hold back if I was doing something wrong.
The other point of pressure that I felt was, oh, my gosh. I don`t want to ruin the actual output at this factory.
You know, when you`re working in manufacturing, you`ve got to keep up and I didn`t want to be the reason that any line went down or, you know, the product didn`t get to the customer.
I didn`t want to mess up. But I love going back to visit and to just to show how important manufacturing was to me growing up because that`s what put food on the table for me.
HAMMER: Great job. Nice to see you. Make sure you watch Robin Meade on HLN`s "MORNING EXPRESS" weekdays starting at 6:00 a.m.
Time now for the SHOWBIZ lineup - here`s what`s coming up at the bottom of the hour on SHOWBIZ TONIGHT.

ANNOUNCER: TV`s most provocative entertainment news show continues right now.
HAMMER: Welcome back to SHOWBIZ TONIGHT. Thank you for watching. I`m A.J. Hammer. Tonight, Jwoww unplugged. Now, you`ve watched her party for five going on six seasons with the "Jersey Shore" gang.
But tonight she`s opening up about what could be a massive transformation of the world`s most famous partiers. Now, here`s what I want to know. What`s it really like to live with a pregnant Snooki?
Joining me now for a SHOWBIZ newsmaker interview, Jenni "Jwoww" Farley who came straight here from a GNC in-store signing for natural body supplement, Ab Cuts, Sleek and Lean by Revolution.
It`s great to have you here. Have a seat. Be comfortable. Ignore the cameras just like you`re on "The Jersey Shore."
JENNI "JWOWW" FARLEY, REALITY TV STAR, "THE JERSEY SHORE": Just like the shore.
HAMMER: Just like the shore. Hey, you look so fantastic.
FARLEY: Thank you.
HAMMER: I want to find out how you got so fit. We`ll do that in a second. But first, there`s some pretty big news breaking on a national scale today about our president - President Obama coming out in favor of same sex marriage.
HAMMER: How do you feel about that?
FARLEY: I`m excited. I really am. I`m all about it. So the more the merrier. I just want everyone on the same playing field. You know what I mean?
HAMMER: Do all of your "Jersey Shore" costars feel the same way? Because you could easily get the impression that a couple of them might be a little closed-minded to that stuff. So tell us, are they?
FARLEY: I know me and the girls are 100 percent for it.
HAMMER: What about the guys?
FARLEY: They did the "Village," on the gay cover, the one issue for gays.
HAMMER: Yes. Not everybody knows that, so I think that would surprise people.
HAMMER: Well, it`s nice to hear that you have support and our president is doing the right thing.
HAMMER: A lot of people are saying today. All right. Let`s talk about some other big news, not quite as big as our president. But of course, Snooki getting pregnant did really surprise everyone.
HAMMER: I think - yes. It took everybody by surprise. And of course, you guys had already put the deal together to do your "Jersey Shore" spinoff.
FARLEY: Yes, like a year prior.
HAMMER: Which is amazing. Then you find out that she`s pregnant. How did she break the news to you? Because that has to have been a difficult conversation for her.
FARLEY: You kind of see it on the trailer. And she kind of - I don`t know - makes a joke out of it, because I`m like, what are you talking about? She like, you have to have sex to do that. And I was just completely shocked.
And I was like, "I know. We all know you love to do that, but how does this happen?" I feel like it`s - I don`t know. I look at her like a little sister. I was just like - my jaw dropped.
HAMMER: But did you get very nervous - oh, my god. What`s going to happen to our show?
FARLEY: Yes, yes. Oh, I screamed. I screamed, like, what am I going to do? Not only is she pregnant; she`s engaged.
FARLEY: So I`m going in with, like, this huge, you know, one-sided mindset, like we`re going to go out. We`re going to party. We`re going to have a great time.
HAMMER: You know it can`t happen.
FARLEY: And it`s like - shut right off. It was like I hit a brick wall. But I`m excited for her.
HAMMER: Yes. And that seems to be the consensus among the shore gang. In fact, we just spoke with your buddy, Vinny. And he told us, yes, he was stunned, but he`s already seeing changes since Snooki -
FARLEY: What did he say?
HAMMER: Shall we watch what he said?
HAMMER: Vinny -
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
VINNY GUADAGNINO, REALITY TV STAR, "THE JERSEY SHORE": I heard the news.
NICOLE "SNOOKI" POLIZZI, REALITY TV STAR, "THE JERSEY SHORE": I`m pregnant.
WYNTER: You were shocked when you heard she was pregnant?
GUADAGNINO: Yes, of course. How could you not be? Any time a young person that loves to party every night gets pregnant, you`d think that. You know, you think, oh, my god. Will she stop drinking?
But the second she found out, she stopped drinking. And you know, like I said, she is like a hardy person. I think of the relatives in my family, like, these strong Italian women. You know what I mean? They can party. They can drink. But they also like can take care of their families.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
HAMMER: OK. Obviously, being a changed person because you`re pregnant is a good thing. But I`m thinking, whoa. Snooki pregnant and, you know, not drinking.
HAMMER: It almost doesn`t make sense to most people who know you guys just from "Jersey Shore." So how did that affect your plans for what the show`s going to be?
FARLEY: I think our plans are always going in. I feel like -
HAMMER: Always her being pregnant? No?
FARLEY: No, always not drinking.
HAMMER: No, it wasn`t all about the party? There`s a different side?
FARLEY: That`s "Jersey Shore."
FARLEY: And you can see us do that all the time on the "Jersey Shore." We wanted to show what you miss on the "Jersey Shore," like me and her together just us being stupid and funny and like running around and eating like fried pickles and ice cream and making fools of ourselves.
But because there`s eight of us on that show, it`s hard to see those moments.
FARLEY: So "Jersey City" is supposed to be those moments.
HAMMER: We`re looking forward to that.
HAMMER: And I mentioned she`s eating a whole lot of those pickles these days.
HAMMER: Oh, really?
She got away from the pickles with the pregnancy.
FARLEY: She likes fruit and veggies.
HAMMER: She did just speak out in a brand-new interview with "V" magazine, talking about how she thinks she`s going to be a great mother and it`s going to change her.
Let me read to you what she said, "I can`t wait to meet my kid. Everyone will be surprised to see a different side of me. I`m loving, caring, sensitive, protective, and very maternal no matter what people might think."
That actually doesn`t surprise me. But what`s the biggest change you`ve seen in Snooki since becoming pregnant?
FARLEY: Multiples, like I can honestly say that I`m just proud of her. Coming from like a concerned older sister, I want to protect her and make sure she`s doing OK. But she`s doing OK on her own.
FARLEY: Like I`m looking at her and she gets up every morning. She eats fruits and vegetables. She won`t even have green tea with me. She wants water and juice.
And she`s just so concerned for the well-being of her child that`s not even here yet. But I just know it`s going to be smooth-sailing for her. She`s so excited.
HAMMER: Well, you watch our show. You know the great debate that was going on when it was first announced that she was pregnant, was will she be a good mom? Will she stop partying? And it`s nice to hear, it sounds like that is her singular focus right now.
FARLEY: Yes, above all.
HAMMER: And I have to ask you because you`re spending all this time with her. You`re going to doctor`s office visits with her. You`re obviously present for her constant mood swings and all the cravings that come along.
FARLEY: I have a chastity belt now.
HAMMER: Well - OK. So in other words, no interest in becoming pregnant anytime soon for you?
HAMMER: It showed you the dark side.
FARLEY: It did.
FARLEY: It did.
HAMMER: In what way?
FARLEY: I really do want them, but Nicole did a 180. She went from Snooki to Nicole in a sense. And she had to mature and do all these crazy things to prepare herself for motherhood. But I`m kind of like selfish right now that I`m not ready to give up yet.
FARLEY: I still want to go have a drink. I still, you know, want my dogs to be my children and take care of them and pamper them. And it`s crazy being a mom.
FARLEY: So I want to be selfish for at least a couple more years.
HAMMER: OK. It`s Snooki 2.0. We`re still on Jwoww 1.0.
HAMMER: OK. That`s fair enough. I did want to ask you about another member of the gang, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, because, obviously, a lot of us were very concerned -
HAMMER: When we heard the news. And we were, quite frankly, shocked to learn that he had gone in for treatment a few months ago for exhaustion and a prescription pill issue. How`s he doing? What can you tell us.
FARLEY: Amazing. Amazing. I haven`t seen him because we were filming when he went in, but I have talked to him. And everyone that I talk to about him says he`s so happy.
He`s so enlightened in a sense. He`s like fresh. He`s fresh. It`s like Mike back to being his old self, like just fresh.
HAMMER: That`s great to hear. And you look terrific.
FARLEY: Thank you.
HAMMER: You look fresh yourself. And I know you`ve gotten really in shape by making some changes in your life. How can people do what you`re doing? What`s the best advice you could give women these days who want to get fit as quickly as they can?
FARLEY: My thing is being healthy overall, like on Christmas, I quit smoking and I quit soda and Red Bull. And then I got a trainer and I just started taking better supplements.
And the supplements that I started, which I`ve really always been on is Ab Cuts. But they made Sleek and Lean. And because of that, I just feel like better because it has fish oils and it has Vitamin E, natural supplements that go in the body, natural metabolism boosters. It`s so great.
HAMMER: And you look like you`re feeling good.
HAMMER: It`s great to have you here. Thanks, Jwoww.
FARLEY: Thank you.
HAMMER: Please come back and see us. And you can check out Snooki and Jwoww premiering this June on MTV with their new show. I can`t wait for that.
Well, it`s not just Jwoww. Joe Jonas is here tonight. One mention of that name today on our Twitter page, I`ve got to tell you, it was madness. Madness.
So many questions coming in. Everybody wants to know, is Joe really looking for love on reality TV? What does he think about his brother Kevin taking the plunge? Joe is breaking big news for us tonight in our SHOWBIZ newsmaker interview.
So was Jennifer Lopez an onset diva? Well, she was if you listen to Chris Rock.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
CHRIS ROCK, ACTOR: When you`re on a set with J. Lo, it`s all about J. Lo. It all revolves around the J. Lo-ness.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
HAMMER: We are on the carpet with Chris Rock and he is talking smack about J. Lo. This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN.
Right now, Roshon Fegan and Melissa Gilbert tell SHOWBIZ TONIGHT about getting eliminated from "Dancing with the Stars."
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
ROSHON FEGAN, FORMER "DANCING WITH THE STARS" CONTESTANT: It`s good to really like have so much to take away from this competition. You know, we`ve made great friends. We just got so many opportunities for me as an entertainer, opened up a million doors just being part of this project.
MELISSA GILBERT, FORMER "DANCING WITH THE STARS" CONTESTANT: I cannot believe what my body did. I cannot believe the shape my body`s in. And I did it, you know, coming out of a horrendous injury.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
HAMMER: That, of course, is Joe Jonas singing his hit song "Just in Love." I`ve got to tell you. It`s off his solo album, "Fast Life."
I`ve got to tell you, SHOWBIZ TONIGHT was feeling the love from all of the Joe Jonas fans around the world when they heard he was going to be joining me right here on the show tonight.
Return of the Jonas. Is there anything that Joe Jonas can`t do? Launching a successful career alongside his brothers. Check. Launching his own solo music career. Check. Engaging his 3.5 million Twitter followers to plug Pepsi`s brand-new "Live for Now" global campaign. Check and check.
Get this - Joe Jonas is also now looking for love on a brand-new dating show called "The Choice." What is that about? Well, you`re about to find out.
Joe Jonas joining me now in New York. Come on over here, man. Now, first thing`s first. We have to shake hands.
JOE JONAS, SINGER: OK.
HAMMER: And the reason for that is because somebody said if you shake Joe`s hand - have a seat. And then I get to shake your hand, I`m going to give you $50.
JONAS: Oh, wow.
HAMMER: No, I`m just kidding.
HAMMER: That`s the reaction you get.
JONAS: Do I get any money off of that?
HAMMER: Of course.
HAMMER: At least $5 for that. But I have to tell you, it is amazing to me, the phenomenon of you and your brothers. And when we put it on our Twitter page today, it was almost unprecedented, the response that we got.
So many people responding, re-tweeting. And they have a lot of questions for you. We`re going to get to that in a moment.
But first, I`m fascinated by the fact that you`re doing this dating show, "The Choice." I mean, that is tremendous to me. Some of the celebrities you`re there with - Tyson Beckford, my good buddy, Dean Cain - I didn`t even know Dean was doing that.
JONAS: I know. It`s pretty crazy.
HAMMER: I`m going to have to talk to him about that. Carmen Electra among the women who are doing it. And basically, you guys are interviewing non- famous people to take on a date. We`re looking at you on set right now.
JONAS: I haven`t seen this footage yet.
HAMMER: There you go. It`s just a couple of photos. And you guys actually spin around on a chair.
JONAS: Yes, same with "The Choice" like "The Voice." and the concept is about - like you said, you have these girls have about 15 seconds - or the guys for the girls have about 15 seconds to kind of introduce themselves.
Sometimes, it can be wacky. Sometimes it can be kind of serious.
JONAS: And it was a lot of fun. I had a good time.
HAMMER: Yes. But here`s the thing that I don`t understand. You`re a guy. And look, you know this to be true that women throw themselves at you wherever you go.
There was certainly no shortage of choices out there. And now, you`re going on a dating show. Did you do it as a goof? Is it serious? I mean, what was your thought about this?
JONAS: I kind of was having fun with it. You know, I`m single and I thought it would be fun to go on a show like this and see who was out there, you know.
I mean, they had some really sweet girls. We had a lot of fun. And I think everybody should tune in because it`s a pretty funny show, too.
HAMMER: I can imagine, especially with some of the people you have on there.
JONAS: Oh, it was so funny.
HAMMER: Did the experience surprise you versus what you thought it was going to be?
JONAS: Yes, you know, it really did. I mean, the people that you get to meet are the people that are competing. Some are just complete comedy. And then, others - you know what? I was like, these girls are pretty sweet.
And I could actually see myself going on a date with these girls. And it`s like to know - it`s like everybody assumes - you know, celebrities are supposed to date other celebrities.
But I think it`s kind of one of those things where a lot of people just want to date a normal person, you know, a small town girl so I think it was a little fun.
HAMMER: Yes. I mean, what is that for you? Would you prefer to be with somebody who`s not in the biz, not a pro, as we say?
JONAS: I think both can work, you know. It depends, as long as they understand schedules. But I feel like somebody that`s kind of just a normal girl, it`s kind of nice. It`s nice.
HAMMER: Something very appealing about that.
JONAS: Yes, very appealing.
HAMMER: Yes. She`s got to work with your schedule, of course, so I guess my final question to you about this is, did you meet somebody special?
JONAS: Well, we have yet to go on the date, so we`ll see. I mean, I did meet somebody, but we`ll - yes.
HAMMER: Interesting. You hold open the possibility that this could lead to love, romance, marriage, house full of kids?
JONAS: Yes. I mean, the guy that I spoke to on the phone, the producer of the show, was like, "So what are you looking for? Are you looking for like a good one night stand or just have a good time?"
I was like, I think I`m just looking for somebody to have a good time with. I don`t know.
HAMMER: All right. Well, we`ll see what happens. I`m here to find out now.
JONAS: It`s funny.
HAMMER: I want to see what happens to Dean, by the way.
JONAS: Oh, yes.
HAMMER: Dean Cain, he`s got experience, you know. That`s a whole different thing. And this is not the first time a Jonas has been involved in reality TV.
Of course, we see your brother Kevin and his wife, Danielle - they`re getting ready to star in their own reality show.
And from what I understand, this is going to follow their lives around and that we are going to see you and your other brother, Nick, also appearing on the show.
Was there any part of you - and I have interviewed probably every reality TV star who has had a good experience and a bad experience - any part of you that`s a little concerned about putting yourself out there on a reality TV show?
JONAS: Well, you know, because it`s focused mostly on Kevin and Danielle, you know, obviously, a lot of people say there`s the reality show curse sometimes for like newlyweds.
And I think the exciting part for them is they`ve had a couple years already being able to have their marriage and be able to get to know each other deeply.
And I feel like it`s kind of exciting for this new chapter where they can, you know, follow a small town New Jersey couple and dealing with the crazy busy life of Kevin and then the in-laws and me and side of, obviously, me and my brothers.
HAMMER: But you`ll be in there and we`ll see some real sides of you that I`m guessing we haven`t seen before.
JONAS: Yes, definitely. I mean, we`re going to be creating music together on camera, which will be kind of different. But it`s going to be pretty cool.
HAMMER: And we already know their marriage lasted longer than 72 days.
HAMMER: So the reality show is not going to tear them apart. So Nick`s run on Broadway in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" is going to be coming to an end very soon.
HAMMER: And I know that he tweeted that you guys will be very happy to get him back into the studio so you can all be together working on this music. So everybody has been asking me all day and sending me notes.
HAMMER: When is your next album going to come out with the Jonas Brothers?
JONAS: Well, first of all, Nick - I`m so happy for him. He`s put his heart and soul into that show. Me and Kevin, we couldn`t be happier for him right now.
And you know, he`s grown so much in the show that getting into the studio now is exciting for me and Kevin because all the different experiences we`ve had for the last two years of doing our solo projects and movie projects and Kevin doing this TV show has really inspired us to create different sounds. And I know the fans are impatient patiently waiting.
HAMMER: Yes. Give me a date.
JONAS: A date? Maybe at the end of the year, hopefully?
HAMMER: OK. Good to know. Maybe the end of the year. Let me ask you one of the Twitter questions that we got in today.
HAMMER: I have to ask you this one. "I love Joe," writes Adette(ph) - that`s the real name, "What are you most excited about now that you`re writing with Kevin and Nick again?"
JONAS: Most excited about? I think being able to tell these stories of the last two years, personal stories, maybe questions that fans have wanted to know and be able to tell them in our music.
HAMMER: Well, it`s great to have you here.
JONAS: Thanks for having me here.
HAMMER: Best of luck being on reality TV. Man, I never saw that coming. Joe Jonas, we appreciate him being here. And of course, his new work with Pepsi`s new "Live for Now" global campaign is on and you should check that out as well.
As we move on tonight, it`s J. Lo`s world, by the way, just in case you didn`t know. We`re just happy to live in it. That`s true if you believe Chris Rock.
Chris and Jennifer Lopez are part of the all-star cast in "What to Expect When You`re Expecting." Jennifer playing a woman who is literally willing to go to the ends of the earth to become a mom.
In real life, the mom of two has long battled an image of being a diva. The question is, are those rumors true? Well, Chris had a little fun with J. Lo`s diva status on the red carpet at a screening for their new movie. Watch this.
ROCK: When you`re on a set with J. Lo, it`s all about J. Lo. It all revolves around the J. Lo-ness. She`s almost at the set.
She` three feet away. She`s about to enter the set. She`s sitting down. She`s sipping water. She`s got - you know, J. Lo. That`s how she rolls.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
HAMMER: I can`t even imagine those two for a moment. "What to Expect When You`re Expecting" in theaters May 18th.
Well, tonight, Sandra Bullock is loving life with Louis two years after she kicked Jesse James to the curb because of that cheating scandal. Exclusive details about the pint-sized love of Sandra`s life.
You don`t want to miss the most adorable pictures of mom and her little man. This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN.
HAMMER: Tonight, Sandra`s new life. Sandra Bullock seems to be reveling in single motherhood. "People" magazine just got some details from inside Sandra`s world with her main man, her son, Louis.
Hard to believe it was two years ago that Sandra was on the cover of "People" introducing us to him. And just weeks after that, her then- husband Jesse James had a bimbo eruption of epic proportions.
Well, that was then, and this is now. And someone who has the scoop of Sandra`s past, present and future, Charlotte Triggs. She`s a staff writer for "People" magazine.
So the adoption process for Louis, it was underway before Sandra and Jesse`s marriage imploded. Sandra decided to go it alone.
And if you look at the pictures in this week`s "People," I don`t think I`ve ever seen Sandra happier. What is life like with her son, Louis?
CHARLOTTE TRIGGS, STAFF WRITER, "PEOPLE" MAGAZINE: Well, you know, sources close to Sandra say that she never anticipated being a single mom, but she loves her son. She loves being a mom and she`s really thrown herself into that. And all of her energy, all of her focus is spent on her son in making him happy.
HAMMER: It`s amazing to me that she had that there for her, sort of to rescue her in a way after things got so ugly with Jesse.
TRIGGS: Right. Well, it`s amazing. It was really a great thing to happen in her life. She had wanted to be a mom for a long time. She was a great stepmom to his kids. And you know, she has thrown herself into being a mom. This is her life`s purpose now, friends tell us.
HAMMER: And I find it very interesting that she is very good friends now with another famous newly-single mom, Heidi Klum. Tell me about that.
TRIGGS: Well, Sandra and Heidi have been friends for about a year. And originally, Sandra was actually going to Heidi, asking for her advice on, you know, mothering and raising kids and all of that.
And then, since Heidi`s own split, she`s actually been asking Sandra her advice on just getting back out there. And you know, they`ve really been leaning on each other for support.
HAMMER: Is there a whole Hollywood single wives club - single mothers club rather that`s going on?
TRIGGS: It sounds like they should have one. I mean, they`re certainly going on play dates and going out for cocktails on Saturday nights together and enjoying that.
HAMMER: And I know and I hear you saying that Louis is her singular focus and she said that she`s trying to give him this non-Hollywood kind of a life.
But that aside, I mean, please tell me that we`re going to see Sandra back on the big screen sometime in the near future. I hate the idea that she would put her acting career completely on hold for a long time to come.
TRIGGS: Right. Well, Sandra is still working. She just wrapped a movie. And she`s going to be on the big screen again later this year.
You know, her son is her first focus, but she brings him with her everywhere she goes. And it`s like, you know, she`s not stopping working and she`s definitely going to be out there again.
HAMMER: And you have to imagine, though, she`s going to - if she has not already started dating at some point. What do we know about that? Because that`s going to be tricky especially when she already has this main man in her life, her son.
TRIGGS: Right. Well, we do know that Sandra has taken her time getting back out on the dating scene. And for her, it`s really important to make her son her primary focus. She`s not going to introduce anyone to Louis until she knows that it`s serious.
HAMMER: Yes. I would imagine you kind of want to hang back on that.
HAMMER: Don`t want to introduce him to some guy who is not going to be around for that long.
HAMMER: Charlotte Triggs, thank you so much. I really appreciate you being here.
TRIGGS: Thank you.
HAMMER: And make sure you pick up this issue of "People" magazine when it hits newsstands on Friday. And that is it for SHOWBIZ TONIGHT. Thank you for watching. I`m A.J. Hammer.
