A.J. HAMMER, HOST: Tonight on the SHOWBIZ Countdown, we`ve got today`s "Top Shockers."

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MILEY CYRUS, MUSICIAN: That`s what you`re looking for. You`re wanting to make history. Me and Robin the whole time said, "You know we`re about to make history right now."

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Miley Cyrus confronts her critics, breaking her silence for the very first time about her racy VMA performance.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BRUCE JENNER, OLYMPIC MEDALIST: It`s not for everybody to see.

This is not good.

I remember Kris saying, "We erased the tape on this." Well, she didn`t.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Is there really a Bruce and Kris Jenner sex tape? Today "True Confessions" revealed, but what`s No. 1?

SHOWBIZ TONIGHT starts right now.

Hello and thank you for watching. I`m A.J. Hammer.

Tonight in the SHOWBIZ Countdown, we are counting down today`s top five shockers. Let`s get right to it, kicking it off at No. 5, a brand-new batch of Miley shockers. Of course, about her outrageous VMA twerk fest.

Well, today we heard her speak out for the very first time about the outrage, and guess what? She`s not apologizing. Well, maybe she should to this guy, Steve Chmelar. Now, more than 40 years ago, this is the guy that invented the "We`re No. 1" foam finger, just like the one that Miley rubbed between her legs at the VMAs. And Steve is understandably not happy. He`s with us tonight from Iowa.

Steve, stay right where you are. I`ve got to talk to you about this. We will in just a moment.

But first let`s hear what Miley is saying in her very first ever interview about Twerk-gate. This was revealed today. It`s Miley talking to MTV three days after the Video Music Awards.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CYRUS: I don`t pay attention to the negative, because I -- I`ve seen this play out so many times. How many times have we seen this play out in pop music? You know now. You know what`s happened. Madonna has done it; Britney has done it. Every VMA performance, anyone that performs, you know. Anyone that performs, that`s what you`re looking for. You`re wanting to make history.

Me and Robin the whole time said, "You know we`re about to make history right now." You`re thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. Like, I didn`t even think about it, because that`s just me.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: That`s just her. There you go.

Kelli is in from CelebTV.com, with me tonight from Chicago. Yes, I guess that kind of settles that, Kelli. Miley could care less what everyone thinks, and I`d like to say I`m surprised by her reaction, but I`m not at all. I had a feeling that was exactly how she felt about it all.

KELLI, CELEBTV.COM: Yes, but I also think she definitely planned that. She knew exactly what she was doing, and she kind of has a point. People were talking about the VMAs again because of Miley and Robin`s crazy performance.

HAMMER: Exactly right. And she knew exactly that it was going to be a moment, and as she put it there, a history-making moment that everybody would be talking about.

David Begnaud is in Hollywood tonight. He`s the host of "Newsbreaker" on OraTV. David, Miley unapologetic. I don`t think that surprised me one bit.

DAVID BEGNAUD, HOST, ORATV`S "NEWSBREAKER": Look, I love it. It`s brilliant. OK? The girl is a businesswoman. She planned this. She knew what was going to happen. Well done.

But Miley, it was pathetic, honey. This not Britney and Madonna. Get real. Your stint was pathetic, so I wouldn`t be bragging about it. Plan carried out, executed beautifully. It was pitiful.

COOPER: Pitiful, taking her back to the top of the charts. It`s all working out, I think.

I don`t know about the big picture, but today Miley did face another critic of her twerking. It happened to be the boy band One Direction. So they just gave a new interview to Moviefone, which is out today, and in this interview Harry Stiles and his fellow One Direction members threw some shade at Miley. They said here that her twerking at the VMAs was inappropriate. Kind of like you, David.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

HARRY STILES, ONE DIRECTION: I think it was inappropriate.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Just different age groups.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Okay, fair enough there, but here`s the thing. Just a week ago, SHOWBIZ TONIGHT spoke with them, One Direction, we talked to them about Miley`s VMA antics and they went another direction. They praised Miley`s performance.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I thought she was very reserved, actually.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I don`t get what everybody is talking about.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It was a good performance.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Oh, a good performance. Kelli, I`m calling a flip-flop on One Direction here.

ZINK: Yes, that`s the P.R. team stepping in and saying, "Guys, you -- you`re still trying to appeal to those younger Hannah Montana fans, so ditch the Miley stuff. And in a few years, you can get onstage with Miley Cyrus. But for now, you love the Hannah Montana.

COOPER: Good call. P.R.`s definitely doing their job.

Well, Miley seems to be giving everybody the finger on this and now the tables are turned, as we move on to our No. 4 "Top Shocker" in countdown.

We, of course, were all transfixed in some way or another as Miley got very down and dirty during her VMA performance with a foam finger. That is not sitting well with guy who invented the foam finger. He says Miley is degrading his creation.

Foam finger creator Steve Chmelar with us tonight, exclusively today from Iowa. And Steve, may I first say, part of my job is interviewing some of the biggest stars on the planet each and every day. I`m talking to the guy who invented the foam finger, and I think that`s pretty damn cool.

STEVE CHMELAR, INVENTED FOAM FINGER: It`s great. I enjoy to have an opportunity to talk with you.

HAMMER: Well, thank you for your efforts and for bringing the foam finger into our lives. You invented this thing back in 1971. You were a teenager at the time. It was for waving around at sporting events.

So I must know, as the guy who put this thing on the planet, what went tough your mind when you saw Miley doing with it on a national stage?

CHMELAR: As I`ve stated, I thought it was degrading. Of course, a foam finger doesn`t have feelings, so it doesn`t know that, but just the whole concept was taken downhill a bit.

And for, you know, for people that use it, you know, in the next ball games that come up and it`s out there in the stands, they`re probably going to be using it in a different way and they are thinking about it certainly in a different way.

HAMMER: So Steve, but I hear you calling it degrading. I have to imagine when you saw this video, you were kind of shocked, weren`t you?

CHMELAR: Well, I didn`t see it live. A relative out of New York had sent me a note on Facebook, so I looked at that, and I was surprised. It just - - I thought the whole performance just seemed to lack any, in my mind, any entertainment value, so I was disappointed.

HAMMER: Are you afraid of the fact that now, in some ways, perhaps your foam finger, this great invention that I actually do believe has feelings, but do you believe it will now forever be associated with whatever the heck Miley was doing with it?

CHMELAR: No, I don`t think it`s going to be tainted like that long-term. It`s been around for 40 years-plus, and this incident is not going to -- it`s not going to change history like she says it has. It`s -- this thing is going to be around, used n ball games, and it will be used for motivation in cheering like it always has.

HAMMER: Yes, I love that you have a positive outlook about it.

I would say this. I know that you`d never really made money from the foam finger, and every time Miley waved it, there wasn`t money going in your pocket. I think that is a crying shame, in addition to what she did with the foam finger.

But Steve, I want to thank you for what you brought to the planet again, and please, my friend, hold your foam finger high and carry on.

CHMELAR: I would be glad to. Thank you.

HAMMER: OK. Got to the bottom of that.

Well, there are some brand-new words in a big celebrity marriage crisis tonight that takes us to No. 3 on our "Top Shockers" countdown. Khloe Kardashian Odom publicly sharing for the first time her pain over reports that her marriage to Lamar Odom is being strained by his reported drug use. Not to mention, his arrest over Labor Day weekend that was on suspicion of driving under the influence.

So look at what she just tweeted: "As much as I wish I were made of steel, I`m not." And then she adds, "I`m pretty damn close to it, though."

OK, Kelli Zink, I`m reading this and thinking, "she is putting on a pretty brave face, but what is going on with her and her family situation right now?" It`s got to be killing her. It is a tough situation.

KELLI ZINK, REALITY TV STAR: One hundred percent, and it`s hard to make light of it, especially since it`s such extreme substance abuse, allegedly, from what we`re hearing.

But we also have to remember when you`re a Kardashian and you put your life on camera 24/7, then you have to be able to receive the critics and all the comments from people when something negative happens in your life, too.

COOPER: Yes, it`s a tough position to put yourself into when you put yourself out there like that.

On Sunday night`s episode of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," we were all watching and saw Khloe apparently feeling good about her marriage when this was shot. Let`s watch.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

KHLOE KARDASHIAN: I did a photo shoot for Lamar recently. I just feel like you could still be really sexy and be tasteful, and it`s kind of liberating.

I`m feeling a little good about myself. I`m feeling a little good about my man.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: OK. So she was in a pretty good place then, but of course, that was taped well before all this happened. David, what do you think is going to happen here? Are Khloe and Lamar going to tough this thing out?

BEGNAUD: I think it`s going to be up to Lamar to figure out if he can get himself under control.

Look, here`s the bottom line. What I like about what she said is we all know people with substance abuse issues, and we all have relationship problems. I like somebody who comes out, is vulnerable, and says, "Look, I`m not made of steel, but I`m pretty darn close."

I think this actually makes her approachable. I hope the best for her, and I think he`s got a serious reckoning coming. I hope he doesn`t hurt himself or somebody else first.

HAMMER: Yes. We`re all going to continue to pull for both of them.

And now we are down to our final two on today`s Top Shockers countdown. Let`s just say they have to do with a Google love shocker and "50 Shades of Grey" shocker. That`s a pretty crazy mix. Don`t go anywhere.

And as if that weren`t enough, we`re also revealing stunning, "True Confessions" you`ve got to hear tonight.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JENNER: This is not good.

I remember Kris saying, "Oh, we erased the tape on this." No, she didn`t.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Is there really a Bruce and Kris Jenner sex tape? Yes, that`s right, Kim Kardashian`s mom right at the center of a sex tape confession. What is the real story with this?

Also, Mike Tyson`s troubling new confessions. Tyson pulling no punches, revealing he`s battling alcoholism.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MIKE TYSON, FORMER HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION: I just started chugging them, wing, wing, wing.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Why does he say he doesn`t think he`ll survive this fight? It is a brutally emotional "True Confession" you definitely don`t want to miss.

This is SBT, SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, on HLN.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HAMMER: So tonight on the SHOWBIZ Countdown, we`re counting down today`s top 5 shockers. We are down to the top two, a Silicon Valley soap opera.

Now, the tech sector is not really known for its steamy sex scandals, but it is in the middle of a big one today. This is after reports that the cofounder of Google and his wife are splitting up and leaving behind a big old Google love triangle.

Let me break this down for you. Pay close attention. Google co-founder Sergey Brin, who`s worth an estimated $23 billion, is reportedly splitting from his wife of six years, Ann Wojcicki. Well, at the same time, there are reports that Brin was dating a high-level Google executive, named Amanda Rosenberg. Making this even more interesting, Rosenberg was also reported to have been in a relationship with another Google executive, Hugo Barra. And just as all this broke, Barra just happened to announce he was leaving the company. What`s going on at Google?

Out to David Begnaud in Hollywood, the host of "Newsbreaker" on OraTV.

BEGNAUD: Wow.

HAMMER: Yes. I mean, my head is about to explode just reading all of that to you.

BEGNAUD: Jeez. Good job, A.J.

HAMMER: Here`s the thing, Google doesn`t specifically ban interoffice relationships.

BEGNAUD: Right.

HAMMER: But of course, they`re not exactly encouraged. However, this looks really bad. Who`s minding the store?

BEGNAUD: Well, look, I love a little bit of Google gossip. Here`s the thing: if you`re going to pick the guys to sleep with at Google or do something with, you might not want to pick, like, two of the biggest honchos, namely the guy who started it and is worth $20 billion.

For the lady, though, who apparently is the victim in all of this, can you imagine what that settlement is going to be if it leads to divorce?

I think people are actually having a lot of fun, because Google is so private and so quiet about things. This is not something that you can contain. The rumors about this one and the details that leaking out are quite salacious. And it`s getting a lot of clicks online.

HAMMER: Yes. And people are starting to throw around the world Google as a euphemism: "You`re going to Google that person or this person."

BEGNAUD: Right.

HAMMER: See, I`m just talking about finding out about them.

Back out to CelebTV`s Kelli Zink in Chicago -- Kelli. And talk about a big settlement. David makes a good point. The guy is worth 26 billion. Holy moly.

ZINK: Yes. But he also said that you shouldn`t be messing around with those head guys at Google. Why wouldn`t you? Because then why wouldn`t you want to go for the top if you`re going to do that?

And listen, I think in this day and age, we work so much as Americans, especially out in the Silicon Valley. Those people are working all day and all night. The interoffice romance thing, maybe it`s not going to be so taboo anymore. Although you should never sleep with someone`s husband or wife. I do not agree with that.

HAMMER: But who hasn`t Googled a co-worker? I mean, to find out more about your co-workers?

Speaking of a spicy love affair, a fictional one. No. 1 on our "SHOWBIZ Countdown" of "SHOWBIZ Shockers" tonight, well, finally, the word is out. We now know who`s playing the super-sexual couple in the movie adaptation in the steamy novel "50 Shades of Grey."

Christian Grey being played by Charlie Hunnam. Now, you may know him from the FX show "Sons of Anarchy." We have Dakota Johnson who`s starring as Anastasia Steele. You may not know her specifically, but she is the daughter of actors Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith.

So David, a lot of people are shocked that they went with unknowns for this part. I actually think it was a really important thing to do. Good choices for you?

BEGNAUD: Yes, perhaps. Listen, A.J., I`ve got to be honest with you: The first thing I said when I heard who had been picked, I said, "Wait, who?" And then I said, I doubt I`ll even see the movie. I might be the only guy watching SHOWBIZ TONIGHT who`s not going to watch the movie, anyway.

But if you`re going to pick two people for something that so many people were waiting for, why not pick two unknowns? Maybe there`s no expectations and so they can only go up from here. Why not?

HAMMER: Here`s the thing. And I`ve wondered this. As long as we`ve known there`s this movie coming out, who wants to sit there in an audience full of strangers with all of the things going on onscreen that we know take place in this book? It seems very creepy to me. I`m just putting that out there. And I`ll leave it at that.

David, Kelli, thank you both so much.

And you need to brace yourself, because we have yet another explosive countdown. It`s coming your way. It is today`s top five "True Confessions."

The mother of the Kardashians at the center of -- wait for it -- a sex tape confession. Yes. Did Kris Jenner star in her own sexy home video, kind of like her daughter? The stunning story still ahead.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CARRIE OTIS, MODEL: It was risky for me, and not every model took the routes and went to the extremes that I went to.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: This is so fascinating. We have "True Confessions" of a supermodel. So Carrie Otis blows the lid off the seemingly glamorous life of modeling, revealing a really dark side. What extremes did she take to look perfect? Well, Carrie is right here. She will be sharing her supermodel secrets. What`s the top secret confession today?

This is SBT, SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, on HLN.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JENNIFER LOPEZ, RETURNING "AMERICAN IDOL" JUDGE: Honestly, I just -- I`m doing it because I want to. You know, I just -- I love it and I`ve had such a good time with it, and I -- you know, I love working with everybody over there.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: A big "SHOWBIZ Hot Flash" breaking today. Jennifer Lopez telling "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest on his radio show why she`s coming back to work with him on "Idol."

Yes, just when we thought that she was out, they pull her back in. Jennifer Lopez officially returning to "American Idol." She says money has nothing to do with it, although she did reportedly make around 12 million bucks last time around.

Listen to what she told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show this morning.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

LOPEZ: When things are meant to be, they kind of just find a way back into your life, and I just feel like, you know, this is something I just want to do. It`s not that I, you know, have to do it. I know everybody likes to make a big deal about money and stuff like that, but for me it`s not about that stuff. I don`t have to do it for those reasons. I do it because I love it.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Yes, that`s fair enough. I`m sure she does love it. I`m sure the millions don`t hurt, either.

Back out to David Begnaud in Hollywood, the host of "Newsbreaker" on OraTV.

So I don`t know, David, I do think that she enjoyed the experience. I don`t think for a moment that she doesn`t love doing "American Idol." But what do you think: Is she doing it for love or for all the money she`s inevitably getting, or maybe both?

BEGNAUD: Look, the girl is not going to miss a meal, and she`s not going to be not be able to not buy a new outfit. But come on. How do you go on a radio show and say that to millions of people: No, it`s not about the money. Fine, well, then I propose we don`t pay her. Just don`t pay her. She doesn`t need the money. Just go ahead and let her sit.

I mean, the bottom line is she`s good to look at, she`s good to listen to, and most of the time, at least for a few minutes every night, she says some constructive things. She`s harmless.

I`m more excited about Harry Connick, Jr., my boy from Louisiana. I think he`ll actually bring some real coaching for the kids, and I think it will be good.

HAMMER: Yes. Let`s talk about this new panel, because it`s going to be a new year for "American Idol." They really have needed to shake things up in a big way. We`ll see what happens.

Of course, the whole Mariah Carey/Nicki Minaj deal was just a disaster.

BEGNAUD: Yes.

HAMMER: But here`s what the show confirmed today. That Randy Jackson is returning. He`s not going to be a judge. He`ll be a mentor on the show.

Keith Urban is the only surviving judge from last season, and yes, as David said, we learned today that Harry Connick Jr., he`ll be judging for the first time. And I`m with you: I think that Harry is a great choice, David. I think he`s terrific. He`s a funny guy. He`s a very smart guy, and obviously, he knows everything that anyone would hope somebody judging you about music would know about music.

The thing is, and I want to see "Idol" succeed, but I don`t know if anything can bring it back to its original grandeur at this point.

BEGNAUD: Maybe not, however, I think it was smart to keep Randy. Randy works on that show. He was getting a little tired as a judge. But you bring him back as a mentor, I think it`s going to work.

I think Jennifer`s going to do well. I think Connick will be great, and Keith Urban offends no one. It will be good. Let`s see what happens.

HAMMER: I`m looking forward to it.

Our next "SHOWBIZ Hot Flash" tonight, Joan Rivers threatening to sue Lindsay Lohan`s father Michael after he accused her of being addicted to Botox and plastic surgery.

Now, he claims he was firing back at Joan because she made fun of Lindsay. Joan says if Michael does it again, she will sue. And I`m shocked by that, David, because quite frankly, she`s always so self-effacing about how much surgery she`s had. I can`t believe she would actually threaten legal action. What?

BEGNAUD: Look, I don`t think Joan`s going to sue. There`s no way in heck Joan -- how can you make fun of everybody like she does and then threaten to sue somebody? I don`t think that`s the case.

I love this little cat fight that`s going on. Because yes, she could be nicer, and he could maybe be a better father. Everyone could make their arguments. But come on, Joan Rivers suing because somebody`s saying something mean? Please. Never going to happen.

HAMMER: And Michael Lohan, you know he is loving the fact that Joan Rivers is now talking about him, and he`s in the news, being talked about in the same sentence as her.

BEGNAUD: Right, all this attention. And we`re talking about it. He loves it

HAMMER: He loves every single moment.

All right. David Begnaud, thank you as always, my friend.

We move now onto something that I found quite disturbing. It is Mike Tyson`s troubling "True Confessions."

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

TYSON: I just started chugging them. Wing, wing, wing.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Mike Tyson`s secrets revealed. What is going on with the world- champion boxer? He`s pulling no punches. He says this is a fight he may not survive. And he will tell all about his battle with alcoholism.

Also, "Michael`s Marriage Secrets." Michael Douglas is setting the record straight on his separation from his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones. Is their marriage really in crisis?

What is today`s top "True Confession"?

This is SBT, SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, on HLN.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JENNER: This is not good.

I remember Kris saying, "We erased the tape" and this and that. No, she didn`t.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Right now, the "SHOWBIZ Countdown," today`s top five "True Confessions," including the Kardashian sex tape. No, not that one. Kris and Bruce Jenner`s. The shocking new revelation that Mama Kardashian may have a sex tape, too.

Plus, Mike Tyson`s stunning "True Confession" that he`s still in an epic battle to stay clean.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

TYSON: I just started chugging them. Wing, wing, wing, wing.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Iron Mike`s biggest, most crucial fight ever isn`t over yet. Will Tyson`s super raw true confession top the SHOWBIZ countdown tonight?

SHOWBIZ TONIGHT continues right now.

(MUSIC)

HAMMER: Welcome back to SHOWBIZ TONIGHT. Thank you for watching. I`m A.J. Hammer. Tonight on the SHOWBIZ countdown, we`re counting down today`s top five true confessions. We kick things off with another Kardashian family sex tape. No, no, not Kim, her parents. Her mother and her stepfather, Kris and Bruce Jenner. Bruce got tricked into confessing that he and Kris made a sex tape. It happened on the latest episode of "Keeping up with the Kardashians." His kids were playing a little joke on him. Here`s what happened.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I had my friends do a sound bite of their voices.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Oh, my God.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It`s unreal, Bruce. 1000 percent think that`s him.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: No, it is not funny. Not for everybody to see.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This is not good.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I remember Kris saying, oh, we erased the tape on this. What if she didn`t?

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: What if she didn`t erase the tape? I don`t even want to know where that thing is. I am taking this out to another reality show star, Tamar Braxton, who kicks off the second season of her excellent show, with her husband, "Tamar and Vince." It`s going to happen on Thursday on WE TV. Tamar also has a new album, that dropped today called "Love and War." Congratulations on that. Always good to see you, Tamar.

TAMAR BRAXTON: Always good to see you, too.

HAMMER: This is freaking me out a little bit because I don`t want to think about the possibility of this tape existing, but it happened, this confession, because of the prank that Scott and Kourtney really pulled off. As you kind of see here, they even simulated Kris and Bruce in the bedroom, but Bruce was so convinced it was him, because he and Kris actually made a sex tape. I am thinking Bruce is, and certainly should be afraid that yes maybe Kris did not erase it. Imagine if that thing got out.

BRAXTON: I`m just like, ew. Shame but no shame. Like I`m not totally surprised, you know, that they have a sex tape. I`m just a little disgusted that the kids know about it, you know? Like, some things kids should never, ever know, and you should definitely never admit to it.

HAMMER: Yes. It`s unclear to me when this would have been done. I want to think it was perhaps a long, long time ago, perhaps when they first started dating or something, but actually now I`m thinking too much about it. Bad thoughts.

BRAXTON: It doesn`t even matter, it`s all disgusting at the end of the day.

HAMMER: What was wild to see on the show when they did the reveal to Bruce showing that it was a prank, it was actually even more uncomfortable to watch than what we just saw. Let`s look at that.

BRAXTON: OK.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Everybody have a seat.

OK. Oh, my God.

(CROSSTALK)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Actually, mom likes the leg up.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Too much information? Too much information? Kelli Zink is the host of CelebTV.com joining me now. Kelli, I wonder if Bruce just threw a little cold water on all those wild reports that he and Kris are having marital problems.

KELLI ZINK, CELEBTV.COM: You know what? You know what I say about the sex tape? Wave that right in. I would love to see that on the VHS or wherever they filmed it.

BRAXTON: Ew.

ZINK: If they`re happily in love, if they have a good sex life. I mean, I don`t want to study it or anything, but I kind of want to see mom versus daughter? Who knows.

BRAXTON: I don`t think they need to (inaudible) family business, the sex tape. No, thank you.

HAMMER: No, no, no. Let`s clear the air, let`s move on, Purell all around, and talk about a marriage that could be in trouble. This is number 4 on our true confessions countdown. Michael Douglas` stunning confession about his marriage to Catherine Zeta-Jones. Last week this news broke, it really shocked us all, that they were living apart after 13 years of marriage. But Douglas just talked about it publicly for the very first time when he was overseas promoting his role as Liberace in the movie "Behind the Candelabra." Here`s what he`s saying. "I have a crisis at home? No, I think the press has a crisis. We are fine. My wife and I are -- are fine. We take a temporary separation, but the press, it gives you stuff to talk about."

Now, we don`t know exactly what`s going on here, Tamar, but if they have a separation, that to me says crisis. Maybe it`s just not our business, but what is happening?

BRAXTON: You know what, this is exactly what my album "Love and War," is about. We all talk about and have had feelings of being in love and the great side of love, but sometimes love can feel like war. It`s always about the constant struggle of how to figure out your marriage. And if it`s cool for them to take, you know, a separation, little breaks here and there, to work out their marriage, then I say kudos to them, because it is not easy. I wish somebody would have pulled me aside before I got married.

HAMMER: You and Vince seem to be doing just fine.

BRAXTON: Yeah, now.

HAMMER: Yes, now. We saw some issues. But look, whatever is happening with them, I guess it`s their world. But this is a stunning confession. I must get to this tonight. This really shocked me. It`s coming from boxer legend Mike Tyson. It`s number 3 in our countdown today of our top 5 true confessions. Mike gave a brand new interview to the "Today Show," Matt Lauer gave the interview, and Mike told him that he`s been drinking again.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

TYSON: I haven`t drank for four and a half years, and I took a drink. I mean, I just started chugging them. Whing, whing, whing.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Really a stunning admission from Tyson there. Kelli, I got to tell you, I was really shocked to hear him say that this was going on, when you look at how good things have been going in his life the past couple of years, at least from our vantage point.

ZINK: You know what, though, I think it`s good that he`s coming out with it. It`s obviously a public cry for help. He`s saying I want to fix this, I need help. I am going on a huge national platform and asking for it. So hopefully he`ll get what he needs to go vegan and be super healthy and clean again.

HAMMER: I really hope he is getting whatever help he needs. He revealed to Matt the reasons why he fell off the wagon after being sober for nearly five years. Let`s watch.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

TYSON: I don`t know, too much stuff coming at me. I`m doing my auto- documentary (ph). Everything started creeping up on me, hitting me, boom. I started going through my old neighborhood and I started dealing with old wounds that opened up, and it was just overwhelming.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: This is sad to me in particular because just a few months ago, it was back in April when I spoke with Mike Tyson, I actually spent a lot of time with him. And one of the things he said to me at the end of our interview, I asked him, are you in the best place you`ve been in a long time? And he said yes. And Tamar, we`re hearing this now. It`s stunning to me.

BRAXTON: Yes, I just remember his interview with Oprah a few years ago, and I just remember how heart-wrenching it was just to see him cry and cry out for help. I just hope that he -- I don`t know about him being a vegan. Sometimes you need a little piece of meat every now and then, but the alcohol and the drugs, I sure hope he gets that under control.

HAMMER: I mentioned this interview I did with him. He also talked about being addicted to the dark side, but the fact that he also saw the light. I want to roll out a little of my interview with Mike from this past April.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

TYSON: It`s all an inside challenge. If you`re not happy from within, if it`s not working from in here, it`s not going to work.

HAMMER: How long did it take you in life to gain that perspective? Because that is something that everybody should understand.

TYSON: I always knew it, I always knew it, but I wanted to go the other route. I liked being on the dark side, you know, addicted to the dark side. So I`m one of those bad dark guys that has seen the light.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: And Kelli, he talked to me about depression, something he`s battled for a long time. Do you think that`s part of the reason he has lived a lie for so long?

ZINK: Absolutely, and it`s never easy to admit to anyone, even the people who are closest to you, that hey, I have a problem, and a problem I thought I had fixed. So kudos to him for coming out so publicly and trying to get the help that he needs.

HAMMER: He told me and he also said it to Matt Lauer that after he stopped fighting, he was just lost. That was his sole purpose, and that was taken away from him. So it`s almost understandable, all this he`s been going through.

We do have another stunning true confession today. This comes from supermodel Carre Otis about the dark side of modelling.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CARRE OTIS, MODEL: It was risky for me, and not every model took the routes and went to the extremes I went to.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: So will that top our SHOWBIZ countdown of the top 5 true confessions? Stay right where you are. And get ready for this true confession. The great actor, Sir Patrick Stewart`s best technique is a quadruple take.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SIR PATRICK STEWART: So we`re at the point in this class where I`m about to show you the quadruple take. It`s a rarely used device in comedy.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Fantastic. Get ready for some legendary schtick from a legendary actor. It is tonight`s must-see SHOWBIZ moment of awesomeness. This is SBT, SHOWBIZ TONIGHT on HLN.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I think you have me confused with someone else. That`s not my style, Emily.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: He looked like you, felt like you.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: How do you know what I feel like?

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: That`s former supermodel Carre Otis, who became a full-on sex symbol after making her debut in the hit film "Wild Orchid." And now she`s confessing to us some pretty scary truths about herself and the real-life world of modelling.

This brings us to No. 2 on our SHOWBIZ countdown of our day`s top 5 true confessions. It`s the confessions of a supermodel. Carre Otis` super good looks bought her to extremes while she was gracing the covers of the top magazines around the world back in the 1980s. I`m talking about "Vogue," "Elle," "Harper`s Bazaar." So many more, so many ways she really set the bar for modelling. But what the world didn`t know was that all along, Carre was living a secret life that included drug abuse, starvation, and marathon workout sessions just to stay on top.

Carre is 44 years old now, and I asked her why the life of a supermodel can look so glamorous to us on the outside while so much can be going wrong behind closed doors.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OTIS: The way a lot of these images end up looking, it`s this impossible ideal, it`s this impossible perfection, and people strive. And it`s a whole team of people creating these images that people are weighing in on. But I think we forget that it does take a whole team, from not only from the team that is using their hands on cameras, but now they`ve got this team of people who are airbrushing on a whole other level we are taking these images to. So I think that rarely are there models that are making it. I mean, it`s a very small percentage of women, of girls, that are making it in the industry to these, you know, supermodels that we see.

HAMMER: Separate from the technology that`s used, how tough was it to be perfect for the cameras? Was there a price to pay for always having to look so good?

OTIS: Yes. I mean, most of us are not naturally tiny and not naturally perky and not naturally all of these things. And so, you know, for me and my experience, I strived -- there was a bar that was very high and very risky to try to maintain a certain level of. You can`t even say it was health. It was a size, a shape, a look. And it`s impossible to maintain any of that. I mean, we all do get old. Our bodies do change. And that`s just the inevitable and the wonderful thing about life. So it was risky for me, and not every model took the routes and went to the extremes that I went to, but I had a personality that definitely was challenged and met the challenge and tried for many years to attain something that even for me was ridiculous. It was unattainable.

HAMMER: So I wonder how you felt through that time, because you`ve posed for so many magazines, thousands upon thousands of picture over the years. And of course, the key was always selling that sex appeal. Again, from the outside looking in, hey, you always looked sexy. Did you feel sexy?

OTIS: I felt so not sexy at all. I was really far from that. I felt really insecure. I felt frightened a lot of the time. I felt -- I mean, insecure would be the biggest word that I can say, and it was very odd to be perceived as that. And there became a really big disconnect in my life from my sexuality as a woman and from the role that I was playing.

HAMMER: You talk about the team that`s put together to make everybody look so beautiful, because obviously when we think of supermodels, we imagine super bodies, the super hair, the flawless skin. How much of it actually did come naturally?

OTIS: You know, I have to say that I have met some girls who totally actually do have it all. I mean, they are just -- they`re incredible specimens. And the majority of us women, models, absolutely don`t have it all. And I`ve been on photo shoots where it was a blast. It was an amazing artistic collaboration, but it does take a whole team of people for the most part.

HAMMER: So you obviously have so many young girls who look up to you, look up to the life you`ve led and they want to live that life that you`ve lived. What do you think the most important confession is that you can share with them today that may help them along their path?

OTIS: It`s a dangerous game, so I really encourage young people to be young while they can. The modelling industry and everything there can wait until they`re 18, 21, and there should be changes so the modelling industry is working with women and men of all sizes, all races, all ages.

(END VIDEOTAPE)

HAMMER: I really hope people interested in getting involved in her business are paying close attention to what she`s saying. Carre`s terrific book "Beauty Disrupted" available in stores everywhere. And that takes us to our big reveal, No. 1 on our SHOWBIZ countdown of the day`s top 5 true confessions. Tamar Braxton`s shocking confession about becoming a mother. Tamar right here in the SHOWBIZ house tonight to reveal all.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Whatever I do, I just want to be great at it, you know?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (inaudible) change some diapers.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: And you too.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I don`t mind changing diapers.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Because I`m afraid of wiping balls. Does it hurt?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I don`t know. I ain`t never had no kid before.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You know what I mean, like when you wipe the balls off.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: No, it don`t hurt.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: Tonight the confessions of Tamar Braxton. We saw her concerns about becoming a new mom on her WE TV reality show, "Tamar and Vince." She and her husband gearing up to be first-time parents. And if you think what Tamar just said there was shocking, wait until you hear the confession she said about becoming a new mom.

We`re at no. 1 on our SHOWBIZ countdown of the day`s top 5 true confessions. So Tamar just gave birth to her son Logan in July, and it`s what she revealed to the website BlackandMarriedWithKids about her new baby that really has shocked moms everywhere. Watch this.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: How did it change you? Is it true that immediately everything changes in your whole world?

BRAXTON: Immediately everything changes, but immediately you don`t fall in love. I heard that, that you do, but they lie. Someone lied. Just like you fall in love with a person, it`s just like that. They`re little people.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HAMMER: So Tamar sharing her reality there. Tamar Braxton with me tonight. We`re just days away now from the new season of her hit reality show, "Tamar and Vince," premiering Thursday on WE TV. And Tamar, first of all, let me say, good for you. You were smiling as you gave that answer there, but what you said was actually pretty raw and honest, and you said something that I think a lot of people are afraid to say. You got a lot of push-back from other moms after you confessed. Hey, it wasn`t love at first sight for you and your baby. Were you shocked by that push-back?

BRAXTON: Yes, a little bit, because I didn`t mean for that to happen. I was just being honest and telling my truth, you know? Because you hear all of these stories, like, oh, when I first met my baby, I fell so deep in love and it`s a bond that`s so unbreakable, and I didn`t feel that. It took a while for me to connect with my son. And had someone told me beforehand that this could happen, you know, I would have been prepared for it, but I was prepared to fall deeply in love and have this instant bonding connection, and I didn`t, and I was very disappointed and hurt by it.

HAMMER: I love your honesty, as I said, because I have heard a lot of my friends who are moms almost reluctantly confess the same thing. I`ve heard people say exactly the same thing. So good for you putting it out there. And I have to believe by speaking your truth like that, you probably helped a lot of women who might feel the same way but are afraid to admit it.

BRAXTON: I sure hope so, because I wish someone would have pulled me to the side or at least explained that this is something that is natural. It`s nothing wrong with you. Because really, initially, after you have a baby, you`re in shock. It`s a person you just gave birth to and you`re like, OK, now what do I do?

HAMMER: Give me a sense of what it was like, though. Did you feel unattached? Were you having a struggle connecting with your baby?

BRAXTON: I really wanted to breastfeed, and I was having trouble getting my milk to come in, and he was having trouble latching on, but what was really upsetting me was the fact that my husband and the baby had this instant bond, and I wanted it really, really bad. So, you know, I was just really confused, and I didn`t understand, and I was thinking the baby didn`t like me, am I the right mom, what do I do. But once he latched on and I produced milk, we are the best of friends, I feel like.

HAMMER: I was just going to say, so now give me the reality check, now that it`s a few months later, are you in love?

BRAXTON: Oh, yes, totally, totally. Logan is the best, hardest job of my life. It`s wonderful. It`s wonderful.

HAMMER: I absolutely can`t wait to see how this love of your life plays out on your reality show in the new season that`s firing up. It`s always great to see you, and I am happy everything worked out.

BRAXTON: Thank you so much.

HAMMER: Be sure to catch the all new season of "Tamar and Vince." It premieres this Thursday on WE TV. And pick this up. Tamar`s new CD is "Love and War," it is available in stores and online everywhere.

This may not exactly be a true confession, but I think it is an amazing revelation you cannot miss.
