While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • So...there may or may not be nude photos of Scarlett Johansson online right now, reportedly stolen from her cell phone. If you haven't been ogling those rumored snapshots already, all we can say is search the Web safely, kids...[TMZ]
  • Speaking of photos, here are non-illicit ones of Johnny Depp in full "Dark Shadows" costume. Check 'em out at the link!  [Celebuzz]
  • We know there's been some buzz that the debut ratings for Anderson Cooper's new talk show "Anderson" have been less than stellar, but it's not for lack of trying: This show is a publicity machine. The latest clip shows Coop commenting that his own wax figure looks like a jerk. We think he always looks extra adorable. [E!]
  • Forget flowers, candy or PDA-filled vacations - the real way to show love is to ink your paramour's name to your inner wrist, as Selena Gomez did with Justin Bieber's name. (Don't worry, it doesn't look permanent...more like magic marker.) [Daily Mail]
  • Just in time for the holiday season, Hugh Jackman is headed back to the Great White Way. This time he'll have a one man show called "Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway" that will feature a selection of his favorite musical numbers. It'll run November 10 through January 1. [NYTimes]

Taylor Armstrong speaks about abuse on 'Entertainment Tonight'

In an exclusive interview for "Entertainment Tonight," Nancy O'Dell sat down with “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Taylor Armstrong at her Bel Air home to discuss the brutal photos currently being circulated by the show.

Taylor, 40, tells "ET" that her black eye was caused by her late husband, Russell Armstrong, according to the show's website. Armstrong committed suicide last month.

"ET" cites a unnamed source close to Taylor who says that the reality star underwent Lasik eye surgery on July 5. The source claims that days later, Russell hit her in the face so hard that her corneal flap was dislocated.

No purity ring for this Jonas in new video

It looks like Joe Jonas is growing up.

The middle Jonas Brother has a sexy new video for “Just in Love,” and his famous purity ring is nowhere to be seen as he takes a bath and rolls around in bed with French model Angele.

“I think people are going to be very shocked,” Joe, 22, told MTV of the video, which shows the two getting generally frisky on the streets of Paris.

The more things change on 'Parenthood'

The more things change on 'Parenthood'

What a difference six months makes.

When we last saw the Braverman clan, Adam had just lost his job and found out he and Kristina would be gaining another child. Amber was reeling over not getting into Berkeley, the only school she applied to. Crosby bought a house, hoping to get back together with Jasmine after doing everything he possibly could to mess up that relationship; Julia and Joel decided to try to adopt; and Sarah was making some progress getting a play written and produced.

At the beginning of "Parenthood's" third season, it's another crazy morning for the Bravermans. Kristina is obviously pregnant and apparently no longer a stay-at-home mom. She's the one dressed in office-wear, while Adam is in his robe making breakfast for the kids. Adam needs a job. Or a therapist.

Amy Winehouse duet with Tony Bennett releases today

On what would have been the 28th birthday of Amy Winehouse, her duet with Tony Bennett is being released to commemorate the late singer.

Proceeds from the track, titled "Body and Soul," will go to support the Amy Winehouse Foundation. In the clip below, Amy's father Mitch describes the foundation to CNN, saying "the mission statement is very much to help children who are suffering from economic disadvantage, who are ill, who are suffering with drug abuse; children and young adults who need help desperately."

Bennett and Winehouse recorded the single in March, just months before she died in late July. "Our singing, it just blended perfectly. It couldn't have been better," Winehouse says of their collaboration in a video posted on the foundation's site.
