Brooke ShieldsBrooke Shields is in talks to join The View.

The 47-year-old Blue Lagoon actress has reportedly been approached by ABC to join the US morning chat show's panel after current host Joy Behar recently announced she is leaving the popular series after 16 seasons and amid rumors Elizabeth Hasselbeck's contract has not been renewed.

According to gossip website showbiz411.com, Barbara Walters, who is at the helm of the series, thinks that Brooke would be a great addition and is eager for her to take over one of the vacant spots.

The brunette beauty, who previously acted as a guest host, is said to be in final negotiations to join the show next season alongside Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd, and Barbara.

Dr. Phil and Dina Lohan

Dina Lohan has been slammed as "phony and inauthentic." The mother of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan gave a shambolic interview to Dr. Phil McGraw on his Dr. Phil show where she was blasted for appearing intoxicated and made rude gestures when she didn't like certain questions and the TV personality was unimpressed.

"What you have done is distinguished yourself in the negative, you have come on here and been phony and inauthentic. You spent more time talking about cameras, are we rolling... that's my business... we're not here about my business, we're here about your life," he told her.

Sharon Osbourne

Sharon Osbourne broke down in tears on The Talk yesterday morning. The showbiz matriarch couldn't keep her emotions in check when she spoke to thank fans for their messages of support following the news that her 26-year-old son Jack has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

"He's great - he's doing really, really good and I want to thank everyone for all their texts and goodwill and love they send to us. Thank you to everyone for all their good wishes. It's been amazing - but for Jack because I really believe that vibes of prayer help. And what I'm doing right now is not helping because I'm just feeling sorry for myself, and that is no good. So we just have to think positively and get on with this show that we love," she said in between sobs.

Alec Baldwin as Jack DonaghyAlec Baldwin has hinted he is leaving 30 Rock.

The 54-year-old actor - who plays television executive Jack Donaghy in the NBC comedy - has hit out at the network after The Today Show sent a news crew to his house following the arrest of a French-Canadian woman on charges of stalking him and said he was leaving the network "just in time."

"Outside my apt today, along side the other stalkers from the tabloid press, a crew that identified themselves as being with the Today Show. The television crew camped outside my apt said they were with the Today Show. #howthemightyhavefallen. I haven't appeared on the Today Show in many years. But did they have to camp outside my apt? A story about stalking sure brings out the stalkers in the media. But, the Today Show? No one from NBC contacted me until the Today Show arrived at my apt. I think I'm leaving NBC just in time (sic)," he wrote on his Twitter.

January Jones as Betty DraperJanuary Jones feels her Mad Men character is "harshly" judged.

The actress plays the feisty Betty Draper in the hit show and she says the fans' reaction to her actions as been unfair because Betty's husband Don Draper spent most of their marriage having affairs,

"She's judged so harshly. I remember, at the end of season two, she had that random affair in a bar, and the reaction was, 'How could she she have an affair? How could she do that to Don?' I was like, 'Do you watch the show?' I mean the guy has been sleeping with so many other women, talking to Betty's therapist behind her back and all these things... Betty finally gets hers in a bar, and it's like, 'What?'" January said, speaking of Betty's fling with another man.

Betty has also faced criticism for her mothering skills - especially when she slapped her daughter - and January admits the audience is now becoming scared of Betty as the 1960s drama goes on: "I used to have more people come up to me in series one and two, and they were a bit more sympathetic to Betty. I guess when she was more internal with her feelings, you pitied her more. Lately, though, the fans are scared of Betty a bit more - most people are just shielding me from their children."
