Simon Cowell joined us, and in true Simon form, boasted "The X Factor" will knock off all the other singing/dancing TV shows -- including "American Idol" -- because it has "NO RULES."

Plus, Dax joins Michaele Salahi in the "groupie slut" category, why Twitter is killing rap music ... and Mel Gibson was just minding his own business, eating a "sweet pastry," when all of a sudden...

The entire "story" is BS. These two and Journey etc.. are working together to pull a reality show out of this. It's all BS and who cares if it's real anyway. A reality is worth lots to these people and they know they have to strike while the iron is hot. The only thing these two have done that's even remotely intersting is getting into the White House. How did they do that? Michele or whatever her name is is not attractive enough to convince any security dude to let her in. Even a hottie coudln't do that. Journey is struggling to enjoy their renewed 15 minutes only because of The Sopranos final ep. So yeah, the whole band is in on this scam. The husband can't act well enough to look convincing. The are both fame whores but I can't blame them if it results in getting a reality show which is what they are after. I bet they have contacting Ryan Seacrest and or Mark Burnett already. Journey sure needs the publicity because they can only tour for so long and most never cared about their music back in the 70's as it is so..
