It was a star-studded red carpet event for Vegas fight night that hosted the pride of Wales versus the American Undertaker.
Appearing in the carpet were Whitney Houston, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Simon Cowell among many stars.
Whitney Houston told Extra she wasn’t a boxing fan, but attended the event to see rumored boyfriend singer Ray J perform. Houston admitted, “I'm here to hear Ray J sing.”
When asked if she was embracing her comeback, Houston responded, “I’ve been back… [Her new album is] something really great. I think you'll like it.”
Extra also caught up with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger who broke Terminator 4 news and Simon Cowell and Andrew Lloyd Webber who revealed American Idol secrets.
As for whether or not Gov. Schwarzenegger will star in Terminator 4, he responded, “No…I've never had a dialogue with anyone about it…[But] if they shoot the movie in California, I would, yes.”
Penacoli also chatted with this week’s American Idol mentor, Andrew Lloyd Webber, who revealed to Simon Cowell which contestant he thinks will surprise him. After Webber whispered the secret in his ear, Cowell exclaimed to “Extra,” “Brooke!...Well, we'll have to see if Mr. Lloyd Webber knows what he's talking about!”
