Mariah vs. Nicki

The Mariah Carey-Nicki Minaj feud turned into full scale war after their blowout on the "American Idol" set. We posted the video everyone's talking about -- now we'll tell you what the 'Idol' divas themselves are saying about it. And, will this help or hurt the show?

Also ... Chris Brown and Rihanna are leaving little doubt they're banging again -- so, question is ... should we feel sorry for RiRi if CB strikes again?

Plus, our heated debate with Richard Belzer! He joined us to explain why he threw up a Hitler salute (again) on live TV. Let's just say, Belz and Harv didn't see eye-to-eye on this. Chung chung!

(0:00) It's one of the craziest videos we've ever seen -- Nicki Minaj going crazy on Mariah Carey duing an "American Idol" taping ... and we'll tell you what set the whole thing off.
(10:30) Breaking news -- Ashton Kutcher just got Punk'd ... with a new, ridiculous trick called "swatting." And it's not funny.
(12:00) Chris Brown and Rihanna hung out at a club ... then at her hotel. The question: Would you feel sorry for her if he beat her up again?
(16:10) Justin Bieber's ridiculous car got towed -- while he was performing at the Staples Center. So who was the dummy that parked it in a 15 minute spot?
(18:00) Richard Belzer joins the show -- you gotta see him and Harvey go toe-to-toe over Richard's Nazi salute.
(27:10) Playboy model/real housewife Joanna Krupa is NOT a prostitute ... and she's ready to sue to prove it.
(29:00) AJ McLean loves ass.
(30:30) Chris Cornell's maid says she got screwed over wages.
(32:00) Winona Ryder is back!!! And hotter than ever.
(33:20) Matt Barnes called a cop a p**sy and a fa**ot ... so which one is more offensive?
(37:10) Jason Russell -- the guy behind the Kony video -- is finally opening up about his naked meltdown. You buying what he's selling?

Wasn't planned? Come on. They let it go on, they recorded it, and then sent a copy to the press.

How come the lighting is so dark today on the show, is it so we can't tell Harvey is wearing the same pair of pants he has for the past week? LOL

Harvey is being WAY too obvious that there is something in it for him with promoting American Idol. And if someone buys it, they are as dumb as Harvey thinks his audience is.

Could be scripted but it doesn't seem too likely on this one, Nicki used curse words and implied threats of beheading etc
Don't think Simon or producers or network would risk it with that kind of script, it goes beyond drama into harsh and inappropriate, which works on some TV shows to pull in viewers, but American Idol is clean-image programming.
Seems like a real attack.

Wino Ryder is still relevant? What did she do, rip off another clothing store?

I just can't take her voice anymore. How do her family and friends handle her "I know everything Black and you don't?"
