'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: First look at 'Jersey Shore' season 4

Although Italy might not have been excited about the “Jersey Shore” cast filming there, a clip of the cast shooting in Florence is surely giving hardcore fans something to fist pump about.

MTV just released a trailer for the new season, which debuts on August 4. Avid watchers will see the cast take part in their usual antics that we all know and love - despite the language barrier - like clubbing, hooking up and a whole lot of fighting.

The trailer gives us a glimpse of the news we heard about while the gang was taping. Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi gets put in “Italian jail” (as Michael "The Situation” Sorrentino calls it) after she hits a police car and sends two cops to the hospital. We also saw the aftermath of the fistfight between The Situation and Ronnie - someone leaves the house on a stretcher - as well as the build-up to the brawl.

Are you excited to watch the new season of “Jersey Shore” as the cast takes on Italy? Let us know what you think below and be sure to watch today's "Showbiz Tonight," exclusively at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN.

'The Dark Tower' project gets scrapped

"The Dark Tower" can't seem to catch a break.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Universal has pulled the plug on the planned Ron Howard-directed project which would have been a TV series and three-movie adaptation of the Stephen King fantasy Western.

As the story notes, it's the second time the high profile deal has been scrapped, as JJ Abrams and his production company also made an attempt to bring it to the screen.

THR reports that the Howard-helmed deal fell apart because the studio "had a July 15 deadline to commit to the movies or not. All the creatives have been told that the studio couldn't make the financials work."

J. Lo video star: I had nothing to do with breakup

Now that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have announced they're ending their seven-year marriage, everyone's retracing the couple's recent moves to look for clues.

There are some who think the split was foreshadowed on Lopez's latest album "Love?," and not just because of that question mark.

People magazine notes that the record's "Starting Over" refers to the singer's love interest as a "dog" and a "player," with other lyrics that reference "dreams falling apart at the seams." Lopez didn't actually write that song, though, but she did co-write another one: "One Love."

Tanya Williams told the New York Post she has shot three episodes so far.

"I signed on to participate in the show to elevate the negative perception . . . that [it] is purposely filled with flighty, overly emotional and senselessly dramatic women," she told the Post via e-mail. "Yes, my life is chaotic, dramatic and surreal, but I am also a businesswoman."
