Uma Thurman expecting baby No. 3

Uma Thurman is getting ready to welcome another little one - a rep for the 41-year-old actress confirms that she's expecting.

This will be Thurman's third child, but her first with Swiss financier Arpad Busson, whom she's been attached to since 2007, having resumed the relationship after a breakup in 2009.

Thurman previously welcomed daughter Maya, 13, and Levon, 10, with ex-husband Ethan Hawke, according to People magazine.

People notes that actor Hawke and his wife Ryan recently welcomed a new baby of their own last August: a little girl named Indiana. The pair also have another daughter, 3-year-old Clementine Jane.

Nick Jonas croons away on 'Smash'

Monday night's "Smash" featured plenty of singing between Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty, but guest star Nick Jonas nearly stole the show with his rendition of Michael Buble's "Haven't Met You Yet."

Jonas, who's currently in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," played Lyle, a young TV star whom Derek discovered (or was it Tom? In any case, it was ironic that Julia declared her disdain for people taking credit for others' careers, and went ahead and did it anyway, on Tom's behalf).

Lyle was also at the right place at the right time for Eileen, when she needed a wealthy investor to buy one of her most prized pieces of art, to help fund the musical.

'Dancing with the Stars' reveals season 14 cast

The upcoming season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" could be the most difficult yet for the popular series.

"Dancing" once ruled the Monday night ratings roost, but with NBC starting to show muscle with "The Voice," the Tom Bergeron-hosted affair is facing pressure to step it up for its 14th season, especially after critics took umbrage with the series' lack of star power in recent seasons.

So who will be hoofing it up for season 14? This season's stars, revealed this morning on ABC's "Good Morning America," are:

While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Although the four percent increase in viewers watching the Academy Awards on Sunday doesn't sound like it deserves much fanfare, these are the Oscars we're talking about - someone, somewhere, is finishing off Brian Grazer's tequila stash in a fit of joy that 39.3 million people tuned in to watch Billy Crystal host for the ninth time. [CNN]
  • Angelina Jolie's leg not only took over the Oscars, but it's also taken over the Internet. There she is doing the double leg on The Frisky, and here she is over here in a "best leg pose" standoff with her partner Brad Pitt's ex Jennifer Aniston. [Us Weekly]
  • Did you blow off the Chris Brown/Rihanna remixes that emerged last week primarily because they wouldn't get airplay anyway? Think again. [Billboard]
  • If we were Jonah Hill, we'd team up with Brad Pitt again for a movie, too - and throwing a little James Franco into the drama certainly couldn't hurt. [Deadline]
  • Sorry, Madonna fans, but this lyrics video for Madge's single, "Girl Gone Wild," doesn't leave us with high hopes for "MDNA":

Praise pours in for Viola Davis' natural 'do

It's no surprise that Viola Davis made an impressive stroll down the red carpet at Sunday's Oscars, as we've come to expect nothing less from the acclaimed actress - but she did manage to upend a few expectations with her hairstyle.

Rather than rock a wig, Davis showed off her natural, close-cropped hair, dyed a fierce flavor of red to add a little more spark to the chic cut she displayed on the cover of the Los Angeles Times magazine.

The curly Afro was a notable difference, and the praise quickly poured in:

CNN goes inside the Oscars

We're accustomed to covering the events, but attending them as spectators is a wholly different thing.

And then, a  couple of weeks ago, a funny thing happened: Through an odd set of circumstances, we just happened to receive two unassigned tickets to the Academy Awards (not to mention the Governor's Ball!).

This turn of events didn't exempt us from pre-awards show work, but it did give us insight into the way the show runs from a different point of view:
