  • First Look: Biel Flashes Her Ring

    (Splash News)
    Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are now husband and wife, but for the moment, you'll just have to settle for this photo of Biel flashing her ring post-nuptials in Fasano, Italy.

    People magazine is withholding the exclusively obtained wedding photos until Wednesday.

    Timberlake, 31, told the magazine that their wedding last week was "magical," while Biel, 30, called it a "fantasy."

    The couple tied the knot Friday in front of family and close friends, including Jimmy Fallon, Timbaland and Biel's "7th Heaven" costar Beverley Mitchell, at the Borgo Egnazia resort in the southern Italian city of Fasano.

    The next day, Timberlake was spotted out and about in Fasano wearing a simple gold wedding band. The couple was also snapped Sunday at the airport wearing hats and casual attire.

    Though Timberlake and Biel were incredibly tight-lipped about the wedding (according to People, even their guests didn't know the ceremony was happening in Italy until the last minute), photos

  • 'Home Invasion' Call at Ashton Kutcher Home

    The home invasion call police received regarding Ashton Kutcher’s Hollywood Hills home this morning was a hoax, and is instead considered another case of “swatting,” police told ABC News.

    “Swatting” happens when a fake distress call is made and an emergency response team is dispatched to the scene. The name is derived from SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics), a type of emergency response team. Such calls are considered criminal.

    In August, Miley Cyrus was believed to be the victim of a “swatting” prank. Authorities were called to her home following the report of a disturbance but found no sign of trouble.

    In response to’s request for comment, Kutcher’s rep referred to his Twitter feed, where he posted a picture from the set of “Two and a Half Men,” along with, “Safe an sound at two and a half men. Don’t miss tomorrow night 8:30.”

    Earlier, a spokesman for the LAPD told, “We did receive a call of a home invasion robbery and three people have been

  • Chris Brown Fails Drug Test, Faces Probation Hearing

    Chris Brown tested positive for marijuana use and faces a hearing to determine whether he violated his probation for the 2009 assault on then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna.

    The R&B singer was in court Monday for the first time in a year. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg was weighing the impact of his positive drug test and sorting through his community service and travel records to determine whether he has been complying with his five-year probation, according to The Associated Press.

    Before he appeared in court, Rihanna sent him a tweet: "I'm praying for you and wishing u the best today!"

    Brown responded with, "Thank u so much."

    Because Brown provided the judge with a medicinal marijuana prescription from California, Schnegg said the positive test result during a random drug screening in his hometown, Richmond, Va., where he had been ordered to complete his community service, may not have a major impact on his probation, AP reported.

    But, she

  • Lindsay Lohan Treated for Asthma at NYC Emergency Room

    Lindsay Lohan was rushed to a New York City emergency room Sunday night following an asthma attack.

    "Lindsay was treated and released, and is doing fine," her rep Steve Honig told in an email, adding that she was treated for asthma.

    Last week, she was charged with a hit-and-run for allegedly striking 34-year-old restaurant cook Jose Rodriguez with her Porsche, according to WABC-TV.

    Lohan's publicist called the furor over the actress' hit-and-run "much ado about nothing."

    "While some of the facts are still being gathered, it appears that this is much ado about nothing," Lohan's publicist said in an email to ABC News. "We are confident this matter will be cleared up in the coming weeks, and the claims being made against Lindsay will be proven untrue."

  • Denzel Washington on Whitney Houston's Legacy

    (ABC News)Denzel Washington says his friend and former co-star Whitney Houston battled a “monster drug that got a hold of her” and her death should be a lesson to us all.

    The Oscar-winning actor told the October issue of GQ magazine, "Whitney was such a sweet, sweet girl and really just a humble girl."

    Referring to her cocaine addiction, the 57-year-old actor said, "Maybe she thought she could have one. And then the next thing you know, her body was betraying her. She didn't know that her body was aging quickly."

    "She couldn't take it. Your body can only take so much," Washington added.

    The Grammy-award winning singer was found dead at 48 on Feb. 11 in the bathtub of her Beverly Hills Hotel room with drug paraphernalia nearby. The Los Angeles coroner found that she was "acutely intoxicated from cocaine" at the time of her death and was a "repeated cocaine user."

    Washington, who co-starred with Houston in the 1996 film "The Preacher's Wife," said the singer's death was

  • Julie Chen Goes Makeup-Free

    (Getty Images/CBS)The women of "The Talk" bared it all for the season premiere today.

    Hosts Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler went makeup-free Monday, clad only in towels and robes.

    The idea was to be in keeping with the show's philosophy.

    "We kind of tell it like it is," Chen told People, a few days before the premiere. "We decided the ultimate way to be real and authentic would be to go on without our fake hair, fake eyelashes, five pounds of TV makeup."

    Chen had her fears though. "I had a lot of trepidation when we decided to do this," she told the magazine. "We know there are people who are going to say, 'Oh, my God, no wonder they wear so much makeup.'"

    "Luckily, what makes our show work is that the women who sit at that table are comfortable enough in their own skin that we'll all take that risk," she added.

    They also invited a guest on the CBS show who has no fear stripping away the artifice: Jamie Lee Curtis joined the hosts

  • LeAnn Rimes Seeks Treatment for Anxiety

    (Jerod Harris/Getty Images)Country singer LeAnn Rimes has checked into a treatment center, seeking emotional help.

    "LeAnn has voluntarily entered a 30-day in-patient treatment facility to cope with anxiety and stress," her rep, Marcel Pariseau, told People exclusively. "While there will be speculation regarding her treatment, she is simply there to learn and develop coping mechanisms. While privacy isn't expected, it's certainly appreciated."

    Pariseau did not respond immediately to a request for comment from ABC News.

    The singer's rep told People that Rimes was not seeking treatment for an eating disorder or substance abuse. In the past, Rimes, who is often photographed in a bikini, has combated claims that she was anorexic.

    The "Blue" singer checked into the facility Wednesday, the day after her 30th birthday, and spoke candidly with People about seeking treatment.

    "This is just a time for me to emotionally check out for a second and take care of myself and come back in 30 days

  • Tracy Anderson Ups Ante For Losing Baby Weight

    Celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson has raised the bar for the celebrity "momshell" in the race to lose weight after giving birth.

    (David Livingston/Getty Images)Anderson, who has famously whipped Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow into shape, revealed to DuJour magazine that she has lost nearly all her baby weight just six weeks after giving birth to her daughter Penelope in May.

    "A lot of women use pregnancy as an excuse to let their bodies go, and that's the worst thing," Anderson told the magazine for its September issue.

    "I've seen so many women who come to me right after [having children] with disaster bodies that have gone through hell, or they come to me years later and say, 'Oh, my body is like this because I had three kids.'"

    The former dancer said she put on a healthy 30 pounds during pregnancy by avoiding overeating and working out during her pregnancy.
