Count down the week’s top buzzmakers with Showbiz Tonight host, AJ Hammer.

No 3. – Shawty Lo – Rapper fights back after Oxygen pulls the plug on his controversial show All My Babies’ Mamas. In an exclusive interview with Showbiz Tonight, Shawty Lo says the only reason his show got pulled was because of the name. It couldn’t possibly be because the show was about a rapper who fathered 11 children with 10 different women.

No. 2. – John Mayer – The 35-year-old singer returned to the stage in Bozeman, Mont. at a benefit show after an almost two-year hiatus and for the first time since having vocal surgery. In 2011, a growth near Mayer’s vocal cords was discovered and subsequently removed. But, it grew back in 2012 and forced Mayer to take a longer than expected break from music.

No. 1 – Betty White – TV icon, Betty White, celebrated her 91st birthday on Thursday, but don’t dare call her old. The Golden Girls star joked, “I may be a senior, but so what? I’m still hot.” It’s true, White is as hot as ever and continues to shine on the TV Land hit, Hot in Cleveland.

Tune in to Showbiz Tonight Mon. – Thurs. at 11pm ET/PT on HLN. And be sure to check back every week for AJ Hammer’s countdown of the Top 5 buzzmakers right here on Celebuzz.
