A.J. HAMMER, HOST: Tonight, the SHOWBIZ Countdown, explosive SHOWBIZ Showdowns. Did President Obama really pick sides in the Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj clash? Is Honey Boo-Boo`s mom at war with "South Park"? Which famous fracas will be our No. 1 on the SHOWBIZ Showdown Countdown?

Hello and thank you for watching. I`m A.J. Hammer with two big SHOWBIZ Countdowns tonight, including the countdown of the top five SHOWBIZ Buzz Makers. And in the running to be named No. 1, Brad Pitt.

Critics everywhere today calling Brad`s commercial for Chanel No. 5, the absolute pits. And wait until you see the viral parodies are already spreading everywhere.

And there`s also the hysterical, brand-new parody of Taylor swifts smash hit, "We Are Never, Ever, Ever Getting Back Together." This thing is called "We Were Never, Ever Actually Together." It`s our SHOWBIZ Countdown of today`s top five Buzz Makers, coming up.

But we begin with our first countdown, today`s top three SHOWBIZ Showdowns. We`re kicking it off with No. 3.

Now, just before President Obama debated Mitt Romney. Tonight, he reignited the debate over the showdown between "American Idol" judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.

He gave a brand-new interview that was just revealed with Michael Yo on Yahoo!`s "The Yo show." And the president was asked about the recent expletive-filled Nicki Minaj tirade at an "Idol" audition. And there he is, Michael Yo, joining me tonight from Hollywood.

Michael, first let`s listen together to what President Obama just told you after you actually asked him the question.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MICHAEL YO, HOST, YAHOO`S "THE YO SHOW": Can you repair the relationship with Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj on "American Idol"? That`s what people want to know.

BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: You know what? I think that they are going to be able to sort it out, I`m confident. And I`m all about bringing people together for the same cause. So, you know, I think both outstanding artists are going to be able to make sure that, you know, they`re moving forward and not going backwards.

YO: Now, which one is your favorite out of the two, Mariah Carey or Nicki Minaj?

OBAMA: Mariah, she`s actually done some events for us. I`ve gotten to know her. And she`s a wonderful lady. So Nicki don`t know, but I`ve got her on my iPod.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Look at you, man, on the phone with Barack Obama. I just can`t believe that.

YO: I know. It`s crazy.

HAMMER: And you asked him about Nicki and Mariah right at the top of your interview. So I need to know: were you shocked that he not only responded at such length, but that he actually knew what happened with Nicki and Mariah?

YO: Oh, absolutely. I was shocked when I asked the question, you know, because I went into the interview. I wanted to make it fun but also ask some serious questions. So I started with Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, and he nailed it. But in his past interviews, when I did some research, he actually likes that show. So I had a feeling, if he was watching it, if he reads, he would know about it. But yes, it shocked me that he`d go into detail about it.

HAMMER: And as a result of you bringing it up, Candy Crowley as the moderator of tonight`s debate didn`t have to bring it up, and she was able to actually cross that question off of her list for the president and Mitt Romney.

But the press kind of seemed to be, well, being a diplomat, being political, avoiding taking sides in the whole Nicki/Mariah showdown. But I`ve got to tell you, I was listening in between the words, and it kind of seemed to me that he was more on team Mariah. What`s your take?

YO: Absolutely. He`s met Mariah. He knows Nick. Nicki Minaj I know came out and said some negative things about him in the press. So I think he was being politically correct and saying he had Nicki Minaj on his iPod. But I wasn`t going to ask the follow up, and it popped into my mind: "What song do you have on your iPod?" But I was thinking, you know what? He probably just said that to be P.C. So I didn`t want to go pushing that far.

HAMMER: That was probably pretty smart. The Secret Service or the IRS might be knocking on your door, Michael.

But I need to know. I realize you`re a fairly influential person in Hollywood, but please tell me. I mean, I don`t think you have the man on your speed dial. How the heck did you get President Obama to agree to be on your show on Yahoo! And were you shocked that he said yes?

YO: Well, yes, I was absolutely shocked he said yes. And actually, I do a radio show in Miami as well, Live 100, called "The Yo show." And it`s a swing state. So he called into the show in the afternoon after he did his speech in Miami. So that`s how it all came together.

HAMMER: And it`s an influential radio station, WHYI, Fort Lauderdale, Miami. I know it well.

YO: Look at you.

HAMMER: Yes, yes, yes. They`re serving south Florida. And you`re now serving the nation with important information from President Obama on Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.

Now, Michael, I also would love to hear what President Obama thinks about Honey Boo-Boo. But I`m guessing he wouldn`t go there. But we will.

That takes us to No. 2 tonight on our countdown of the brand-new "SHOWBIZ Showdown," Honey Boo-Boo versus "South Park."

Honey Boo-Boo`s mom, June, she isn`t laughing at a recent "South Park" episode that viciously spoofed her and her 7-year-old daughter. "South Park" really ripped apart their hit TLC reality show, "Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo." So Momma June just struck back on "TMZ Live," calling what "South Park" did trashy. Let`s watch.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JUNE THOMPSON, REALITY TV STAR: "South Park," me being a big person, I didn`t take offense -- you know, it just didn`t portray that show is, you know, not a show that I would want to be on to begin with. And the preview looks like it would be OK. But just the way they portrayed the show, it was just -- it was kind of trashy.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Well, we definitely know how Momma June feels. I want to bring in one of TV`s most beloved moms right now, actress Maria Canals-Barrera, the star of Disney`s "The Wizards of Waverly Place," of course. And Maria is all set to host the Mommas Latinas Awards tomorrow night on CafeMom.com.

Great having you here, Maria.

MARIA CANALS-BARRERA, ACTRESS: Thank you.

HAMMER: Honey Boo-Boo`s mom, who starred in a show that -- well, let`s be honest, it shows people passing gas, saying things like "You`d better redneck-ognize." Is this a case of -- I don`t know -- the pot calling the kettle trashy?

CANALS-BARRERA: A.J., I`m at a loss for words. I don`t understand it. Everybody has, you know, the freedom to express what they think. And she does. And so did "South Park," I guess.

I saw it. I saw the spoof. And it was kind of funny. Did you think it was funny?

HAMMER: I actually -- you know what? Before I render my opinion, let`s roll it out so we can see what momma June was so upset about. Charles, can you show the "South Park" clip?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: My name is Honey Boo-Boo, and I`m a beauty queen, bitches. I`m fat as a whale, and I don`t give two (EXPLETIVE DELETED), girl.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Her favorite foods are `sgetti and butter. And she likes drinking Red Bull and Mountain Dew.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I`m only 6, and I`ve already had three heart attacks, girlfriend.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Come on. Come on now, Boo-Boo. Now get up and wave to them judges.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: OK. There`s nothing funny about a little child having a heart attack.

CANALS-BARRERA: Wait a minute. I didn`t see that part.

HAMMER: Yes, but that`s -- listen, I`m a "South Park" fan. I`m sitting here laughing, but Michael Yo, some people are upset. Particularly Mama. Do you think that "South Park" went over the line?

YO: Look, I think it`s a compliment when "South Park" actually puts you and does a big skit on the show about you. That means you`re pop culture. That means you`ve made it, I guess.

Now, I mean, they put their lives out there. Here`s the thing: when you do reality TV like the Kardashians or any other family, you put your life out there. So yes, people are going to make fun of you, especially when you live like that and you portray yourself like that. And calling the "South Park" bit trashy is kind of, like you know, it`s kind of weird saying that.

HAMMER: Yes.

CANALS-BARRERA: It`s all -- it`s all really kind of -- all of it is really kind of sad.

HAMMER: It is kind of sad. And what I always point out about Honey Boo- Boo, because they`re easy targets, let`s face it. I mean, "South Park" didn`t have to reach too deep in order to put on this parody. But at the same time, if you really start to look at the show, you see a certain level of compassion and heart that really surprises a lot of people.

So anybody who`s just thinking it`s a big train wreck, I actually encourage you to see that there is a little more to it.

But this takes us to our big reveal of the No. 1 on our SHOWBIZ Countdown of SHOWBIZ Showdowns. Hulk Hogan versus radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge over that sex tape.

Now, Hulk just filed a massive lawsuit against Bubba and Bubba`s now ex- wife, Heather Clem, claiming that they secretly recorded Hulk having sex with Heather. The sex video ended up on a Doctor.com (ph). Hulk is suing them for $100 million.

Bubba and Hulk used to be best friends, I mean, super close. Judging from what Hulk`s lawyer just said, I`m thinking the friendship is probably over. Let`s watch.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The allegations in that lawsuit state that approximately six years ago the Clems secretly videotaped Mr. Hogan having private, consensual intimate relationships in a private bedroom. Mr. Hogan had no knowledge that he was being videotaped. He did not consent to the taping because he didn`t know about it. And he would never have permitted it.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Now, Bubba is telling a different story on his radio show today. He said that Hulk was aware that the tape was made.

I have to tell you something, Maria, it`s hard for me to believe. When Hulk was with me on my show last week, he seemed devastated. Does it even seem plausible to you that he would allow a tape of him to be made, having sex.

CANALS-BARRERA: Well, first of all, I`m thoroughly confused with how this all even happened. It sounds like a big "Saturday Night Live" skit, even the little -- even the name Bubba the Love Sponge.

HAMMER: Yes. Yes, there`s that. Look, it`s difficult to know what the truth is, but the facts remain to be seen as they play out in court. We`ll see where this goes.

Michael Yo, host of "The Yo Show," thank you so much.

Maria, thank you as well.

CANALS-BARRERA: Thank you.

HAMMER: We look forward to seeing you at the Mommas Latinas Awards.

All right. As we move on, berating Brad Pitt, is this really going on? Yes, with merciless and hilarious parodies of Brad`s mystifying Chanel ad, which have gone worldwide.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BRAD PITT, ACTOR: My luck, my fate, my fortune.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You don`t know what you`ve feeling, because you don`t know what Brad Pitt is talking about. But it`s OK because it`s Brad Pitt.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: You`ve seen Brad`s ad, and now SHOWBIZ TONIGHT has all the -- all the backlash.

And from mocking Brad to mocking Dad. The incredibly adorable video that`s gone viral. It`s become one of the biggest Buzz Makers of the day. But which will top our next not-to-be-missed SHOWBIZ Countdown, Biggest Buzz Makers? This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HAMMER: Dynamic duo, two of the funniest ladies in Hollywood to make history as the first female hosts of the Golden Globes. There also reports Khloe Kardashian is officially on board for "The X Factor."

And Paula Abdul`s dancing future. You`ve got to hear what she just told us. That tops "The Buzz" today.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

HAMMER: SHOWBIZ on location with Paula Abdul. SHOWBIZ TONIGHT was right there, "Dancing with the Stars" with Paula last night, where she joined the panel as a guest judge.

TOM BERGERON, HOST, ABC`S "DANCING WITH THE STARS": A very special guest who knows a lot about dancing and judging big TV competition shows, Paula Abdul.

HAMMER: The former "American Idol" judge revealed to us she wouldn`t rule out being back on "Dancing with the Stars."

PAULA ABDUL, SINGER/CHOREOGRAPHER: I would definitely consider coming back. It`s just -- it`s a beautiful show, and I`ve always been a fan.

HAMMER: Give it up for the golden girls of comedy. It`s official: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be hosting the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association just announced the news with praises from the association`s president: "The unparalleled comedic timing of Tina and Amy will surely have viewers wanting to tune in to see them in action."

The "Saturday Night Live" alums follow comedian Ricky Gervais, who hosted the Globes from 2010 to 2012. The 2013 Golden Globes will air January 13.

Khloe and Mario`s new "X Factor." Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez are the brand-new co-hosts of "The X Factor." According to TMZ.com, Khloe and Mario have signed on the dotted line and are expected to debut on the singing competition show in November. The duo will be joining the star- studded judging panel of Britney Spears, L.A. Reid, Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell.

(END VIDEOTAPE)

HAMMER: No wonder Americans can`t find jobs during the recession. The Kardashians have them all. But is Khloe`s new gig going to be a big hit or a massive miss?

Jenn Hobby, entertainment reporter and co-host of "The Burt Show," joining me now from Atlanta.

So Jenn, we know the Kardashians, they`re like catnip for the millions of people that just can`t get enough of them. But Khloe might be out of her element here. Do you think this is going to be a huge hit or a miss for Khloe and for the show?

JENN HOBBY, ENTERTAINMENT REPORTER: I think it`s actually a great fit. And I can`t wait to see what she`ll do with it.

Khloe to me is one of my favorites and one of the most likable of the Kardashians. She`s down to earth. She`s really funny. And I think she`s going to bring some warmth to that show, "The X Factor." They really need it, you know.

The first season they had some trouble with the host connecting with the contestants and having that warmth. And I think she can really bring that to the show. Sort of a down-to-earth, relatability with these contestants. Trying something new. She`s trying something new. I think it could be a really great hit.

HAMMER: It will be interesting to see, because obviously, they have tested her and they know she can actually pull off the job. As you and I know, that`s not always so easy to do.

But I was also thinking about the fact that, I mean, look at the star power here. You have Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, Khloe Kardashian, you know, along with Simon, of course. Do you think it could possibly overpower the show with so much star power?

HOBBY: They need all the help they can get, to be honest, A.J. The ratings haven`t been where they`ve wanted them to be. Even with the investment of the money in Britney Spears, I think there was a big tune-in factor for the first show. But ratings have tapered off since then. And they`ve got a lot of competition with "American Idol," with "The Voice," with all these singing competitions competing for viewers. They need to bring it. As much star power as they can get is what they need.

HAMMER: And I`m sure they would like to see Kim Kardashian sitting out in that audience while her sister is up on stage.

HOBBY: Sure.

HAMMER: All right, Jenn. Thanks so much.

Moving on now, Swift spoof. If you listened to all of Taylor Swift`s song, you`d think she`s the unluckiest girl in the world when it comes to love, right? Or is she?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE (singing): We just met. You ain`t my wife. But oh, that`s why I`m telling you, I`m telling you. We were never, ever, ever actually together.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: You have to see this. It`s a sensational Taylor Swift spoof. I guarantee, you will not be able to get this out buzz worthy tune out of your head.

And Honey Boo-Boo`s mom kicking butt and taking names in Hollywood. Momma June is getting big buzz tonight for what she just said about cashing in on her daughter`s reality TV fame. But will Boo-Boo beat Taylor in tonight`s SHOWBIZ Countdown of the Biggest Buzz Makers?

Time now for the "SHOWBIZ Buzz List." Here`s what the SHOWBIZ TONIGHT staff is buzzing all about this week.

"American Horror Story" returns to FX. It`s time for season two.

We can`t get Kelly Clarkson`s new song, "Catch My Breath," out of our heads.

Is it a tablet? Is it a laptop? Well, the Sony Duo 11 Ultrabook claims to be both. The keyboard slides away when you don`t need it.

We can`t tear ourselves away from Lili. It is the addictive game that juts got souped up for the iPhone 5 with some amazing new graphics.

And we can`t wait to pop this into our DVD player. "Madagascar 3: Europe`s Most Wanted" is out now on DVD and Blue Ray.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BEN STILLER, ACTOR: I said perfect. That`s where we`ll find the penguins.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: What?

(END VIDEO CLIP)

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HAMMER: Brandy`s ultimate Whitney tribute. Brandy Norwood has let it be known that, you know, without White House there would be no Brandy. She idolized Whitney. Whitney`s sudden death earlier this year was a crushing blow.

Well, now Brandy is using her love of music to heal that pain. And she`s revealing all in an emotional new SHOWBIZ Newsmaker interview. SHOWBIZ TONIGHT`s Nischelle Turner is joining me now from Hollywood.

Nischelle, Brandy really hadn`t revealed all that much about her enduring connection with Whitney until now.

NISCHELLE TURNER, CORRESPONDENT: Yes. You know, A.J., and A.J., that connection actually kind of sends chills down my spine.

Now, Brandy`s new album is called "2-11." That`s her birthday, February 11, actually, as well as mine. But that was also the day that Whitney was found dead in her hotel room.

Now Brandy tells SHOWBIZ TONIGHT that for her, that parallel actually isn`t spooky, it`s quite the opposite. She thinks it`s heaven-sent.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BRANDY NORWOOD, SINGER: Two-11 represents for me evolving and purpose. And then to lose my idol, who introduced purpose to me, you know, and dream to me on that day, it`s just -- it solidifies our bond and what I need to do to go forward.

I will never get over Whitney passing. Like I don`t -- I don`t understand. I just don`t understand. It just -- I don`t get it. But I get it. You know what I mean?

And I just have to do what I promised her. And I have to follow the words that she gave me right before she died, which is another strange thing, that we talked right before, you know, she passed on. And it`s like, this -- this time to move forward in music and everything in my life, you know, I`m in a great place. And I just feel like she`s with me.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

TURNER: Now, A.J., you know, you heard Brandy say there that she not only wants to make good music to honor Whitney, but she talked about being in a good place. And I know when she was recording this album still, she told me that she feels like this is so personal, because No. 1, she`s got a new love in her life. She`s happy, and she does feel like she`s in a really good place. So she really likes the music that she`s making with this album here.

HAMMER: It is astonishing to me, though, still, remembering, seeing the video of Brandy and Whitney speaking on February 11, the day that Whitney died, now knowing...

TURNER: Yes.

HAMMER: ... because we didn`t know or it didn`t really occur to people at the time, that was Brandy`s birthday, which will obviously never be the same for her.

TURNER: Yes. No. And you know, she was going to perform that night at Clive Davis`s party, Brandy was, her and Monica. And go on stage. So when all of this happened, yes, it was her birthday. She thought she would be celebrating. She thought she`d be spending it with Whitney. And then this happened.

HAMMER: Well, it`s good to hear she seems to be in a positive place with it all. Nischelle, thank you so much.

As we move on tonight, keeping up with Honey Boo-Boo? Yes, it looks like the pageant queen`s mom is pulling a page out of the Kardashian momma-ger handbook. She`s keeping things all in the family. But will it work?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JIMMY KIMMEL, LATE NIGHT TALK SHOW HOST: Well, I would like to be your agent. And I would like to negotiate this stuff for you.

THOMPSON: No, I am the agent, the manager and all.

KIMMEL: Oh, all of that?

THOMPSON: Yes.

KIMMEL: That is why you`re now making millions of dollars.

THOMPSON: But I know.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Or is she? Momma June getting big buzz tonight for what she just said about cashing in on her daughter`s reality TV fame.

Plus, Brad`s backlash. The merciless and hilarious parodies of Brad Pitt`s mystifying Chanel ad. They`ve got worldwide.

This story will top the SHOWBIZ Countdown, the "Biggest Buzzmakers"?

This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PITT: Look, my fate, my fortune.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You don`t know what you`re meant to be feeling, because you don`t know what Brad Pitt is talking about. But it`s OK, because it`s Brad Pitt.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: The SHOWBIZ Countdown, Biggest Buzz Makers. You knew it was coming.

Brad Pitt`s brooding Chanel commercial gets slammed and made fun of worldwide just a day after it was released. The intensity, the weird lighting, the facial hair. Pitt`s new ad gets roasted. Will are these the adorable sneezing babies blow everyone away? These two can`t seem to get ahold of themselves.

The SHOWBIZ Countdown of our top five biggest Buzz Makers is on as SHOWBIZ TONIGHT continues right now.

(MUSIC PLAYING)

HAMMER: Welcome back to SHOWBIZ TONIGHT. Thanks for watching.

We are counting down today`s Top Five Biggest Buzz Makers. Let`s get right to it as we kicked it off with number five and the hilarious brand new parodies today of Brad Pitt`s new Chanel No. 5 ad. Brad was paid $7 million bucks for his superstar acting skills. But tonight, some are calling it his epic fail. Take a look at some of the headlines that were out there today.

The "St. Louis Post Dispatch" says it was just goofy. Hollywood.com calls it embarrassingly awful and "Ad Week", well they put it as total nonsense. And along with a disastrous backlash from the ad, come the spot-on parodies that you just have to see. Now, watch with me as we are going to show you bits of Brad`s ad and the big takeoffs on his line.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PITT: It`s not a journey. Every journey ends but we go on. The world turns and we turn with it. Plans disappear. Dreams take over.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: If Brad Pitt can stand in a corner and just say stuff.

PITT: My luck, my fate, my fortune.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: And you don`t know what you`re meant to be feeling because you don`t know what Brad Pitt is talking about.

PITT: Chanel No. 5, inevitable.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It`s inevitable. Someone needs to fix this light.

PITT: It`s crackerfuls. Never crumble.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

(LAUGHTER)

HAMMER: You know, I still sit here dumbfounded when I watch this thing. What have you done, Brad?

With me from Atlanta, entertainment reporter, Jenn Hobby, co-host of the great radio show, "The Bert Show." And tonight, in New York, actress Maria Canals-Barrera, she is best known as the lovable mom on Disney`s "The Wizards of Waverly Place." Maria, all set to host the Mommas Latinas Awards -- that happens tomorrow night on cafemom.com. Be sure to check that out.

So guys, I don`t think what`s going on with Jolie-Pitts here. First, you remember we had Angelina`s awkward leg at the Golden Globes this year that made headlines. Now we have Brad`s awkward Chanel as grabbing big headlines.

Jenn, I want to start with you. We are talking about, of course, of the superstars of super stardom here. I love Brad Pitt, but shouldn`t we be talking up their next big blockbusters and not - and their ridiculous missteps? Do they need a new PR team or something?

HOBBY: They might. I think it`s so confusing because we don`t know if Brad Pitt is playing a character or himself. And you know, these two often get criticized publicly for taking themselves a little bit too seriously. And I don`t think this is going to do anything to combat that. Because it seems like he`s taking himself so seriously. We`re going, OK, we`re talking about a cologne here. What are you even saying?

HAMMER: Well, it`s inevitable. What does that mean? Maria, help me. Make me understand this. Give me insight.

CANALS-BARRERA: Well, it is just so bizarre. Because at first, it seems like it`s some kind of soliloquy from Hamlet. And then, all of a sudden, he is talking about a perfume, and it`s like -- it doesn`t make any sense. It`s so bizarre. Is he pondering the meaning of life and then, all of a sudden and buy Chanel perfume. It`s just like water and oil. It`s very strange. I thought it was a parody when I first saw it. I thought it was parody. Now, there`s parody of a seeming parody. So?

HAMMER: Maybe, we are just -- I don`t want to speak for you guys. Maybe I`m just not all that bright, and maybe it is so artsy and so deep, it`s beyond my ability to understand.

CANALS-BARRERA: No, you`re very bright. You are very bright. It`s strange.

HAMMER: My mom appreciates you`re saying that.

Jenn, I need to know this because, again, I`m a huge Brad Pitt fan. He`s a good guy. And women still swoon over him and love him. And when you see Brad in this crazy ad, does it at all take away from that leading man status for you?

HOBBY: No, not at all. It`s just a momentary lapse of judgment on whatever script they handed him, I think. But no, he is absolutely still at the top of his game, super hot. Definitely has that sex appeal. I don`t know maybe, I will go out and get Chanel.

HAMMER: It is inevitable.

All right. From smelling to sneezing, number four in our SHOWBZI Countdown of today`s Biggest Buzz Makers, a hot viral video of adorable twin babies that seem to get a big old thrill from sneezing. Go ahead. Break out the oohs and aahs as we watch this together.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

(SNEEZING)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Bless you.

(SNEEZING)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Bless you baby.

(SNEEZING)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Oh, bless you.

(SNEEZING)

(LAUGHTER)

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: It`s spectacular, right? Who knew sneezing could be so much fun. That is twin brothers, Falcon and Phoenix, who were just 12 months old when that video was shot. Very adorable.

Moving on now to number three on the SHOWBIZ Countdown of today`s Biggest Buzz Makers, let`s go from babies to Boo-Boo, Honey Boo-Boo. Momma June and Honey Boo-Boo from TLC`s hit reality show, "Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo", just appeared as guests on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." This was their late night debut.

Jimmy asked the question so many people really want an answered: when will the Boo-Boo family take note of their new-found reality TV fame and finally cash in Kardashian style? Let`s watch.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

KIMMEL: Do you watch the Kardashians ever?

THOMPSON: No.

KIMMEL: You don`t ever watch them. Because they`re making millions of dollars and your show is just about as popular as there`s is.

THOMPSON: Yes.

KIMMEL: Are you guys making millions of dollars too?

THOMPSON: No, we just started out. So, you don`t make millions when you first start out.

KIMMEL: Well, I would like to be your agent. I would like to negotiate this stuff for you.

THOMPSON: No, I am the agent, the manager and all.

KIMMEL: All of that?

THOMPSON: Yes.

KIMMEL: That`s why you`re not making millions of dollars.

THOMPSON: Well, I mean, but I know what`s best for my kids because I love to be around my kids. It`s all about my kids as I watches to put money in the trust fund.

KIMMEL: You are very loving with your kid.

THOMPSON: Yes, I mean, trust funds because this journey may last six months or may last a year. But, I don`t want ten years down the road, Alona or any of the kids to be, oh my God, I have nothing to show for it.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: You know, I`m watching Boo-Boo there. She has a lot of seemed bored out of her skull.

Jenn, do you agree with Jimmy that Boo-Boo and her family should accept tall help that they`re being offered so they can go Hollywood all the way?

HOBBY: You know, I actually really respect June for trying to stay in charge of her family and trying to keep some control over this. You know, I loved what she had to say about putting the money in a trust fund because you don`t know where this is going. They understand that their lifestyle has a lot of people laughing. But who knows if it will last. And I really respected her for being a protective momma bear and looking out for her family and doing a right thing with money so far. I was really impressed.

HAMMER: Maria, what about you? Mama June said she will be the only one calling the shots for her family. They have said no to new homes, no to the agents, no to the frills of Hollywood. And I`m with Jenn there. You kind have to admire June for not giving into the pressures of the fame. Do you think she will be able to stick to her guns though? Because you know, they are just blowing up in becoming huge in terms of their fame. You know, how long can you avoid that pressure?

CANALS-BARRERA: Oh, God. They are incredibly popular. I mean, I kept hearing about it. And finally I saw some of it and I couldn`t believe it. So, I agree with you. I think it`s good that she takes it slow because it`s already crazy enough as it is.

HAMMER: But there`s a part of me, Jenn, and you and I have followed this stuff for years, there`s a part of me that wants them and hopefully they have this but it doesn`t appear so, wants them to have some kind of a good adviser, a Hollywood-type of adviser in their corner to help them steer clear of a lot of nonsense throughout.

HOBBY: Sure, A.J. I think you`re right. And you know, maybe a really bright attorney who could look out for them, help them sign those contracts and make sure they know all of the language that can be in there so they`re not signing their life away to the different networks that want to pick up this show or maybe the different production companies that want to get a piece of what they`re doing.

CANALS-BARRERA: Or maybe Dr. Phil could be part of the team?

HAMMER: Yes. I`m sure he`s waiting to step in. I`m sure there are talks in progress already.

Listen. If Honey Boo-Boo didn`t make it to number two, too, who did? If you thought Brad Pitt spoofs were funny, well, wait until you check out a brilliant new spoof of Taylor Swift.

(VIDEO CLIP PLAYING)

HAMMER: All right, is this hysterical spoof of the Taylor Swift song? The biggest Buzz Maker of the day or could a pack of elephants on a highway take the top spot tonight? Did I just say that, elephants on a highway? You have to see the incredible video as we reveal number two and number one next in the SHOWBIZ Countdown.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HAMMER: Welcome back.

Tonight, SHOWBIZ is counting down today`s Top Five Biggest Buzz Makers. Here is what we have so far.

Number five, the smell of disaster. Brad Pitt`s bizarre new ad for Chanel No. 5 is being spoofed all over the Internet, one day after its premiere. That is no good.

At number four, the two adorable viral video of baby twins sneezing. I love this thing. First their parents do it and the two baby boys go into a copycat sneezing fit. It`s so cute.

Number three, here comes Honey Boo-Boo. Honey Boo-Boo and her mom make their late night TV debut on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." And Momma June proves she may be the fears` mom manager inside or outside of the Hollywood.

That brings us to number two on the SHOWBIZ Countdown of today`s Biggest Buzz Makers, brand new video of four elephants getting loose and pounding down a highway in Mississippi. This happened after their circus truck runs off the road.

Now, it happened after the truck, bring them to a circus in Louisiana, wrecked on this major interstate highway. The elephants are fine. Don`t worry about them. They were lucky it happened on the remote stretch of road in Mississippi, I would say. But don`t worry about the driver either. He is OK as well.

Those elephants did go on a mini-rampage down the highway before the rescue workers managed to round they were able to round them up and get them back on to another truck. And get this, this elephant right here, can you this one? It was so riled up after getting a taste of freedom. It took several hours and a team of emergency responders to get him off the road.

You know, when a pachyderm gets freedom, that`s a good thing. You can`t go wrong with elephants on the loose.

But that brings us to number one. It`s our big reveal at the top of your Top Five Buzz Maker countdown tonight. It`s a must-see spoof of Taylor Swift smash breakup hit, "We are Never, Ever Getting Back Together". This one happens to be called, "We Were Never, Ever Actually Together" and it features Michael Yo, he`s the host of "The Yo Show" on Yahoo!

Michael is with us tonight from Hollywood. Oh, Michael, what have you done now? Hey, you made it to number one. Let`s watch why, together. Roll it out, Charles.

(VIDEO CLIP PLAYING)

HAMMER: All right, Michael Yo. Hey, you didn`t know the auto tune there. I`m pretty impressed. I must say, Michael, one of the most creative spoofs I have ever, ever, ever seen. I need to know how you came up with this.

YO: You know, first of all, I`m one of the worst singers ever. I apologize. But how we came up with the spoof is, we heard the song and this song is actually not a attack on Taylor Swift which a lot of people think. It`s about a couple that first meets and always one person guy or girl likes the other person more. And then, they are like oh, we`re dating. And they like, oh, no, we just met. So we were like this is a great song to spoof that off of. And that`s how we came up with this whole concept. So, yes, it`s taken off. And we were really excited about it.

HAMMER: Well, congratulations, man. It`s a lot of fun. I love seeing a friend doing something good that`s going viral.

YO: Yes.

HAMMER: Michael Yo, always good to see you, every, every time.

All right, as we move on. You remember Jon Gosselin`s ex, Hailey Glassman. The dad from "Jon and Kate Plus Eight", and Hailey dated after he has exposed of split from Kate Gosselin. So whatever happened to Hailey? She is going to tell you herself. Hailey is right here to talk Jon, Kate and about how she is stepping out into her own spotlight. That is coming up next in an interview.

This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HAMMER: So, do you ever heard the expression, "My life is a Lifetime movie"? Well, one very infamous woman is starring in a new show called just that on the Lifetime network. It debuts tomorrow night on Lifetime.

Hailey Glassman became famous for being known as the other woman in the whole Jon and Kate plus Eight marriage meltdown. Now, back then, Hailey was practically crucified for supposed role in the famous family falling apart. Well, as we know, there are always two sides to every story.

Now, Hailey Glassman is seeking the spotlight to share her side of what really happened between her and Jon.

Hailey is joining me right now in New York for the SHOWBIZ News Maker interview. It is nice to meet you. We have a lot of ground to cover here. I want you to first start by taking us back to that time when you first met Jon. Jon was the husband of course of Kate Gosselin at the time. And Kate was a patient of your father`s a plastic surgeon who did Kate`s tummy tucks. Did you have any idea the first time you met Jon, with Jon and Kate that you guys would be hooking up?

HAILEY GLASSMAN, STAR, "MY LIFE IS A LIFETIME MOVIE": I mean, that`s an understatement. No. I was jaded from the whole thing. I had no idea. You have to remember, I met him at 17 years old. I was in -- I remember being a senior in high school and my dad threatening me saying I`ll take your car away if you don`t come meet the Gosselin`s for dinner with us. So in my mind, I thought hey, I`m going to go because I want to go tanning and take the car tanning, which obviously I still enjoy tanning now. But, ten years later --.

HAMMER: So you couldn`t have possibly imagined what was to come from just meeting Jon, hooking up with Jon. And then of course, look, the tabloids had an absolute field day with you when you revealed that you and Jon were dating soon after he and Kate had filed for divorce. You were immediately cast as the home wrecker in that whole situation. I have to imagine it was not easy living through all of that at the time.

GLASSMAN: I mean, for me to sit here A.J. and tell you, oh, it was fine. It was easy. No, I`m not going to sit here and tell you that. It was the hardest thing --

HAMMER: Was it a devastating time of your life?

GLASSMAN: Devastating -- I don`t even have words.

HAMMER: Well, in the upside of having done this show for Lifetime is you do get to tell your side of the story and get it all out there. And I imagine, that has been redeeming for you in a big way.

GLASSMAN: You know, it was. I felt, you know, over three years later, I was ready to tell my side because it was a hard time in my life. And something like that isn`t easy to talk about. And I refuse to tell my side. If were to tell it speaking upon from anger or hurt. I wanted to tell it from a selfless standpoint.

HAMMER: So, this is really the right venue for that?

GLASSMAN: Yes. And Lifetime is not a tabloid. It is a very nice network. And I felt if I`m going to do it with any network, it`s going to be with Lifetime because they promote woman self empowerment.

HAMMER: Well, I think it will be terrific for people to see and get that side of the story.

Hailey, great to have you here. Thank you so much.

GLASSMAN: Thank you.

HAMMER: Appreciate it.

My life as a lifetime movie debuts tomorrow night on Lifetime. Hailey is not the only fascinating story told on, "My Lifetime as a Lifetime Movie." Former Manhattan madam Kristin Davis became famous to supplying escorts to one time governor, Elliott Spitzer of New York. Now, she is telling her story.

And in my SHOWBIZ News Maker interview with Kristin, she tells me why for her becoming a madam, it wasn`t a big deal.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

KRISTIN DAVIS, FORMER MANHATTAN MADAM: You know, sex and finance, they`re all sort of interrelated, traders portfolio managers use services. And when I started as a trading assistant that was one of the first task was to book a Vegas trip that included girls. So, it was not something I was unfamiliar with.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Kristin Davis, revealing her side of the Spitzer story. And much more in my exclusive SHOWBIZ News Maker interview that`s tomorrow on SHOWBIZ TONIGHT.

And tonight, what would you do, maybe you`ve been there, walk into a workout when a bunch of construction guys start harassing you.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Hey, listen, I can tell my wife to cancel dinner and you and I can have dinner if you want.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You are disgusting.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: What would you do? Would you step in and give those construction workers a piece of your mind. We are going to show you what happens next.

This is SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It`s the morning rush in Hoboken, New Jersey. The joggers are out and what would you do actress is dressed for the gym. What better way to start the day than hearing a compliment.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What kind of workout are you doing today?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Are you talking to me?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes. Yes.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Love is in the air.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I sense it. I smell it. If you need us, we`ll be over here.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: But, that smile can quickly turn when man doesn`t know when to stop.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Hey listen, I can tell my wife to cancel dinner and you and I can have dinner, if you want.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You`re disgusting.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Our construction workers aren`t letting up and this woman gives our actress some sisterly advice.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You should stop talking to them. Just ignore them and they shut up.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: All right. So, the woman in the construction workers are just actors, but would you step in if you saw this going down? What would you do? We`re going to be asking that question starting this Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. Eastern when "WHAT WOULD YOU DO?" comes to HLN.
