While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Like an annual early holiday present, Rihanna's lined up another new album for November, complete with a topless photo serving as the album cover. "Unapologetic" will drop November 19. [MTV]
  • After Justin Bieber's computer and camera were stolen, there was brief furor over a potential naked pic, but the hardworking Internet has since debunked the theory that this headless naked guy with a bird tattoo is Justin Bieber. The hope for a possible sex tape still springs eternal, though. [Gawker]
  • We're unclear if the reason NBC's planned reboot of "The Munsters" will now air as a Halloween special is because it's too good to scrap or because it's scary bad. [THR]
  • "Party of Five" is paging Patrick Dempsey's Derek Sheperd - Neve Campbell's been cast as the doc's sister for a multi-episode arc. [TVLine]
  • Katie Holmes is trying very hard to pretend like she's just another average New Yorker by riding the subway, and she is failing. [E!]
  • Remember Demi Moore? No? Here's a convenient tidbit to jog your memory: She's supposedly not pleased that her estranged husband Ashton Kutcher (yep, they're still legally married) is rumored to be getting serious with Mila Kunis. [Us Weekly]
