11:03 pm
cycle of domestic violence. >> she feels like she owes it to her fans to finally speak out and break her silence. >> hovistic details after chris brown left her battered and bruised last february. there was more shock soon after when we all learned this super famous couple was actually back together again. >> they reunited and she received a lot of flack about that. >> even though brown's image was destroyed after the attack, rihanna started to suffer as well when she went back to him. >> people worried she going back to her attacker would send a signal to other women that this is okay. this is something that you should put up with. >> there are a lot of women who experienced what i did. but not in the public. >> rihanna tells diane sawyer the ordeal she went through was a million times worse because it was so public and she was embarrassed. >> why be ashamed?
11:04 pm
>> because that -- i didn't want people to think that's the kind of person -- that i fell in love with that person. that's embarrassing. that's embarrassing that that's the type of person that i fell in love prosecute. so far in love. so unconditional that i went back. >> but rihanna tells diane sawyer why she ended things with brown once and for all. >> when i realized that my selfish decision for love could result into some young girl getting killed, i couldn't be held responsible for telling them go back. chris -- even if chris never hit me again, who is to say that their boyfriend won't?
11:05 pm
who is to say they won't kill these girls. >> going back to chris brown is not an option to rihanna. as part of his sentence, brown has been ordered not to have any contact with rihanna for five years. now, rihanna's career is back on track. she has collaborated with jay-z and her new album releases this month. with her new tv interview on abc and her new cover story in "glamour" magazine, it's clear speaking out to her is another big priority to rihanna. >> this happened to me and it can happen to anybody. >> one thing that's really important to rihanna now is being a spokesman for other women.
11:06 pm
that's part of coming out and breaking her silence and showing the world what happened to her. >> now that rihanna is breaking her silence, will women embrois her as a role model. >> now, carlos diaz, a correspondent for "extra." >> this was a powerful interview with ron ark, how do you think she did? >> i think she did amazing. i've interviewed her several times. when people were calling for her to speak out for domestic violence, i said she's a kid. even who though she's confident on stage, when you talk to her she's very much like a kid. she came in on her own in this interview, even correcting diane sawyer when it takes how many times they go back after domestic abuse, rihanna says actually it's more like eight or nine than seven. she came across amazingly strong and confident. >> you're right. she is only 21 years old. we have to keep that in mind. tameka, what's your take? >> you know, i was very impressed with rihanna. everyone wanted her to speak out nine months ago when it happened, however, she wasn't ready. i don't think chris is ready to.
11:07 pm
but she's taken time, listened to supporters, jay-z and beyonce, people in her inner circle and she's handling it brilliantly. chris brown might want to take a note out of her page. each time he comes out it seems to early to sort of conceptualize what he wants to say on this matter. >> maybe he should look at this and say this is what i should do, give it a little more time. be genuine about how i feel, too. i have to tell you when i was watching her interview this morning with diane sawyer on good morning america, i was startled about her confession about why she left chris brown for good. watch what she said. >> when i realized that my selfish decision for love could
11:08 pm
result into some young girl getting killed, i couldn't be held responsible for telling them go back, even if chris never hit me again, who is to say their boyfriend won't. >> there has been so much speculation about why it did take rihanna so long to open up about the night she was attacked. when you hear rihanna now, carlos, it seems to me she really struggled with how her actions would affect other women in abusive relationships. it seems to me she was almost tormented by it. >> in honesty, people here and a lot of different places saying, oh, she's having a new album coming out, that's why she's speaking out. but like tanik, a said she considered her role. if she had thrown that out
11:09 pm
flippantly, matter of factually she didn't want anyone hurt as a result of what happened with her and chris brown, but when you see her say that, you can almost see the emotions, going through each of the emotions as each word comes out of her mouth. >> she's given this serious, serious thought. she always made a surprising revelation on good morning america. she said she felt ashamed by what happened. watch what she told diane sawyer. >> i didn't want people to think that's the kind of person -- that i fell in love with that person. that's embarrassing. that's embarrassing that that's the type of person that i fell in love with. so far in love. so unconditional that i went back. >> tanika. quickly, are you surprised she was embarrassed? she was the victim here. >> no, i'm not surprised. she said also in the interview if the only piece of her life that was left private and now exposed to the world, overnight she became britney spears, i'm very proud of her. i've been interviewing her since
11:10 pm
she was a young girl who didn't know how to do an interview to now sounding so eloquent, so conscious about what she was saying. i think she did a smashing job. >> tanika, carlos, good to see you. >> tyra banks has a brand-new controversy over her weight. you remember how she told everyone to kiss her fat ass because women should accept their bodies. now she's showing off her dramatic new weight loss. if tyra showing off a little hypocrisy here? also, could it be try? is mariah pregnant? a brand-new interview with mariah. also this. >> somebody is drunk down strahanton road. >> she should know. >> okay. are you behind them? >> no, i am them. >> you am them.
11:11 pm
that's unbelievable. you heard right. a woman calls 911 on a drunk driver. she am them. it's showbiz caught on tape. showbiz this weekend on hln.
11:12 pm
11:13 pm
11:14 pm
all right. did you see this? a forklift accident at a booze warehouse in moscow. watch this. the driver lost control of the forklift and, bam, slammed under all that booze. vodka and cognac, $150,000. please, don't worry, the driver was okay. >> he was very lucky. welcome back to "showbiz tonight." i'm brooke anderson in hollywood with a.j. hammer in new york. help me, i'm drunk.
11:15 pm
this is unbelievable. a woman called police to report a drunk driver, herself. it's not the first time something like this has happened. here is cnn's jean moos for "showbiz tonight." >> reporter: mary stray did not stray from doing the right thing, turning in a drunk driver. >> 911. >> somebody's really drunk. >> she should know. >> okay. are you behind them? >> caller: no, i am them. >> you am them? >> yes, i am them. >> okay. you want to call and report you're driving drunk? >> yes. >> the wisconsin woman later called police she had had seven or eight brandy and cokes. >> are you still driving right now? >> yes. >> do you want to stop driving before you get into an accident? >> yes, i will stop. >> she did with a blood alcohol level twice the limit. this isn't the first time someone driving drunk called
11:16 pm
911. it happened just last year in washington state. >> 9/11. >> i just don't 'n' if i'm safe to be driving. >> why wouldn't you be safe? >> i'm pretty drunk. >> in fact, he felt so bad he spoke to a kcq reporter without revealing his identity. >> killing someone else isn't something i want to do. i started feeling bad for being on the road. >> remember the michigan police officer who called 911 who confiscating pot from suspects. >> i think we're dying. >> how much did you have? >> i don't know. we made brownies and i think we're dead. i really d'oh. >> he didn't die but resigned. for those that prefer to recline. >> i don't usually drink and drive. >> his motorized recliner you up for bid on ebay, complete with radio, cup holder, the famous recliner anderson crashed into a
11:17 pm
parked car last year while driving drunk. other people have motorized their recliners. but lacking the cache of infamy, they don't get the price. the minnesota police are auctioning it off. tmz records lazy boy insists they drop the name from the auction. when it comes to drunken driving it's not us versus them. >> you am them? >> yes. i am them. >> here is an idea, but call me crazy. if you're drunk, don't call the police, just don't drive. that was cnn's jean moos for "showbiz tonight." tonight the mother of the
11:18 pm
baby who narrowly escaped death being run over a train. who can forget this. in melbourne, australia, the mother goes into a panic as the stroller carrying her six-month-old son rolls off the platform and into an oncoming train. the mother almost jumped in front of the train herself. amazingly the baby survived without a scratch. on the "today" show, matt lauer asked the mom about that unimaginable moment when the stroller rolled onto the track purchase there was a moment i thought i should jump. there was a second i thought i should have a look at him, have a look, how is he. that time, i just -- i was blank. i was complete shock. >> obviously emotional just talking about it. the baby is doing fine. truly a miraculous and such a happy ending to that story, brooke.
11:19 pm
>> certainly is. showbiz on call phone lines going nuts over the idea jon and kate gosselin might get together. >> i for one don't see this happening. i think it's gotten too ugly between the two of them. >> our callers agree with you. here is a call. she definitely thinks it's time for jon to move on. >> i wanted to say jon gosselin may be acting like an idiot, but he was treated like dog poop for so long on the show by kate. i watched her just degrade him and give him the most condescending looks and talking to him down in front of the children, i hope he goes for someone better. >> we heard from carden in oklahoma who says they should say sorry. >> of course they should forgive each other, the only option left. doesn't mean they should couple their marriage again. two different personalities. it's like stake and ketchup up, kate is the steak here. >> showbiz online phone lines up 24-7. give us a ring, 1-888-sbt-buzz.
11:20 pm
>> so jon gosselin certainly has engaged in some eye raising behavior since his split with kate. he's definitely not the only famous guy who has had some issues. tonight we've got a showbiz special report you do not want to miss. hollywood's most toxic bachelors. also breaking mariah baby news. are mariah and her husband expecting a little bundle of joy? larry king got right to the point? >> right now? let me take a swig of scotch and let you know. >> i'm thinking that's not scotch. could it be true? is mariah having a baby. while jessica is furious with mel rose place for firing ashley. could she have gotten canned because she's a bad actress?

11:42 pm
11:43 pm
11:44 pm
women whose names you know, women whose names you don't. women who have been picked on. women whose husbands put them down. women at work or those in school, i have one thing to say to you, kiss my fat ass. >> you remember that, when tyra banks slammed the tabloids for difficultiesing her weight in 2007. tyra send a message to women everywhere to celebrate their clothes. is tyra being a hypocrite after dropping a whopping 30 pounds.
11:45 pm
i'm a.j. hammer with brooke anderson in new york. tonight, tyra's brand-new weight shocker. tyra banks is revealing all about how she dropped the pounds. hold on just a second. is she talking out of both sides of her mouth? we've got a debate. showbiz learned kirstie alley is taking her weight loss bagts to reality tv. i've got to ask, after exposing her weight loss before is she setting herself up for failure. jessica's tirade on "melrose place." she called the show crap after her sister was fired. right now midwin charles, an attorney, with midwin charles & associates in new york, let's start out with tyra's weight revelations. showbiz learned on tyra's show wednesday she's going to reveal her secrets to dropping a whopping 30 pounds. i want to show you what tyra has to say about how she felt
11:46 pm
pressured by media attention to do this. >> i felt exposed. i wasn't trying to proclaim to the world i got fit and healthy and in shape because i felt kind of conflicted, especially after the kiss my fat ass thing -- it's still fat, by the way. >> i don't know about fat. but right there you have tyra admitting people might see her as talking out of both sides of her mouth. midwin, is she? >> i don't. i think her question was women need to feel comfortable with the skin they are in. if she didn't and needed to lose 30 pounds, so be it. i don't think it's a big deal. >> we covered the tyra banks controversy two years ago or the weight controversy where she was being called out for her weight. she sent a great message. people back then were saying way to go, tyra. tyra says she still embraces her curves yet she lost all this weight. do you think, brooke, she can have it both ways or do you think a lot-of- people will call her a hypocrite? >> i think people will call her a hypocrite, no matter what she does, a.j., but i don't think
11:47 pm
she's sending mixed message personally. she says it's not about being skinny. look at her. she's not he mastiated now. she's still curvy. she looks great. it's sending a message about good health. we all need to strive to be as fit and as strong as possible. that's good for long-term health, bodies and minds. when i say that tyra is sending a great message, i really don't think i'm alone here. rachel, are you with me on this one? >> i'm with you, midwin. she never signed up to be the poster child for plus sized women. when she said kiss my you know what a few years ago she was standing up for women of all shapes and sizes that don't want to be judged. she's a great inspiration everywhere. >> let us move to another breaking story. a & e says kirstie alley is planning on doing a reality show, her journey with weight loss. she parodied her weight on "fat
11:48 pm
actest." lost weight for jenny craig. put on a bikini to go on oprah, that gained 80 pounds back. i've been among those rooting for kirstie all along. midwin, it does seem to me kirstie is setting herself up for failure and she said it was a miserable experience before. >> it was a miserable experience. i applaud kirstie for doing this. it's so difficult to share your inner battles with the world. remember, oprah did this, too, lost it, gained it, came back, ran the marathon, put weight on. it's just what people go through. if she wants to share that with people, i think that's a really good thing. >> we all want kirstie to be her healthiest. what do you think, is doing it on television the way to go for it? >> she might be setting herself up for failure but i can't wait to watch. now a & e, intervention,
11:49 pm
hoarders, mind freak, the bounty hunter. >> somehow it will be funny with kirstie alley. another story. jessica simpson blasting "melrose place" for firing her sister ashley, writing her out of the show. take a look at what jessica tweeted. cw catching up on mp. who writes this crap. isd bad scripts to work with. this, thank god my sister is amazing and you got some press. i know jessica is doing the big sister thing protecting ashley. but midwin, the buzz is elsewhere that ashley was fired because she's a terrible actress. i'm not saying that but i've seen that buzz. do you think midwin is making herself look a little silly by coming out like this? >> i think so, too. i wonder what else jessica has going on with her career or lack thereof, subject to debate and
11:50 pm
argument. but it's entirely possible that her sister was just not the best actress for "melrose place" and why she was fired. she needs to tweet about >> has sisterly love on the outside and maybe feeling differently inside. i don't know. you said it not me. thanks, guys. tonight, big mariah carey baby news from cnn's "larry king live." if you can say one thing about larry, he gets right to the point. >> larry: are you with child? >> right now? i'm going to have a swig of my scotch and let you know. >> larry: take a swig and i'll wait. >> i don't think that's really scotch in that mug but could it be true? is mariah carey having a baby? this is "showbiz tonight" this weekend on hln. @@@@@@@@@ they said it would never last.
