JoJo Siwa is in a great headspace thanks to her time on Dancing With the Stars! The 18-year-old Internet sensation embraced her spooky side on Monday's show, dressing up as Pennywise, the creepy clown from It, for Horror Night. Her jazz performance earned her and pro partner Jenna Johnson a perfect score for the second week in a row. 

"It's hard getting that because then we do put ourselves in the position of like, 'Oh, well, we want to maintain that,'" Johnson told ET's Lauren Zima after the show. "But we have the same mentality going into each week. We are just going to do the best that we can. We are going to outdo ourselves."

Siwa was especially excited to embrace her scary side for this week's performance. 

"I feel like we got to do Sandy and Frenchie, we were pretty. We got to do Argentine tango, we were pretty. I feel like we get one chance to not be hot, to not be pretty, to not be beautiful," Siwa explained. "We are, like, terrifying and scary."

ET confirmed that Siwa recently went through a breakup with her girlfriend of less than a year, Kylie Prew. And though she didn't comment on the split, she did talk about how the show has helped her mental state during this time. 

"We can thank this one for making me feel better about myself," Siwa said of Johnson. "This show, for me, has put me in a really happy place and makes me feel like myself. I think that is something I am really, really appreciative of. It's so real, and it is what it is." 

Siwa has also tightly bonded with Johnson, even becoming an honorary member of Johnson's family. 

"I have not only gained the best experience while being here and gained so much happiness while being here, but also my best friend while being here and my sister," Siwa said of Johnson. "When her sisters called me yesterday an honorary sister, I was like, 'Oh, I travelled to the family.' I really am a sister. I really appreciate this."  

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 a.m. ET on ABC.

Olivia Munn is very much looking forward to being a mom. ET's Matt Cohen spoke to the pregnant 41-year-old actress about her new film, Violet, and she talked about getting ready to welcome her first child with her boyfriend, John Mulaney.

Munn plays the title character in the film, who must fight her inner fears. Her inner voice, which expresses all her fears and self-doubts, is narrated by Justin Theroux, and Luke Bracey plays her childhood friend, Red. Munn told ET that Justine Bateman, who makes her directorial debut with the critically acclaimed film, is definitely one of her favorite directors she's ever worked with.

"There's an expression in sports like a player’s coach, and she's definitely an actor's director," Munn explains. "She came in with a strong vision which you really need for this film, and especially for me, there was so much heavy stuff to go through and I really needed her support through it. There was times when my mind was just bogged down with so many emotions and feelings and I had to say to her, 'I don't know how to do this scene anymore and I feel like I have it then don't,' and then Justine being such an amazing actress herself, was able to just step aside and be away from where everyone's about to start filming and we would, you know, go do it all over again. So, she was everything I needed and more for that."

Their close working relationship has also spilled into their personal lives. When asked what she's most looking forward to about motherhood, Munn told ET that she and Bateman, who has two children, have talked about it.

"Justine and I had a long conversation about this the other day, honestly, I'm just excited about meeting whoever it is, and bringing a little person into this world," she says. 

Over the weekend, Munn and Mulaney's names were trending on social media after rumors that the two have split. However, ET has learned that that reports of a split are not true.

Meanwhile, Munn said she could definitely relate to her character in the film, and acknowledged some of her own struggles when it comes to self-doubts.

"I think we've all dealt with it but it's really difficult when anything from the outside world starts to get into your subconscious and you start to make all these fear-based decisions," she says. "And like Violet, you know, you present well, you appear well, but it's tearing you up inside and in the process of pretending that things don't bother you, you make these decisions to try to combat those things that aren't true to who you are."

"You know, for me, I try to play things off or be sarcastic or laugh it off or just keep going forward or not try to fall into those traps too much," she continues. "I’ve thought to myself, 'If I could just look like this, if I could just have this makeup artist, if I could just wear this outfit, if I could just get this designer then maybe, maybe I’ll then fit in,' and I think that that was something really powerful in the script that I felt in my own life."

Bateman also spoke to ET about the film's incredible cast, specifically, Theroux giving life to Violet's self-destructive inner voice.

"And he's great at that, he's a great actor, great writer," Bateman says of Theroux. "And I just wanted the voice to be as different from Olivia's as possible because for me, when I was making a lot of fear-based decisions years ago, what really helped me is trying to think about these fear-based, or these critical thoughts, these negative thoughts, as if somebody else was saying them to me. And then I could see them objectively and go, 'Oh, well, that's not true,' you know? But if I just continued to treat them as if they're my own thoughts -- which they are -- then I continue to give them validity."

"So, I wanted to give that to the viewer, you know?" she continues. "Try to think of these thoughts as if somebody, as if Justin Theroux's saying them to you, then maybe you won't believe them, you know maybe you'll look at it objectively."

Violet his theaters Oct. 29 and will be available at home on demand on Nov. 9.

The Jonas Brothers are gearing up to get roasted. The trio are set to star in a new comedy variety special for Netflix, Jonas Brothers Family Roast.

The streaming platform announced the upcoming one-hour comedy special on Monday, with Saturday Night Live's Kenan Thompson set to host.

Netflix teased that the comedy event will be "a one of a kind comedy special of epic proportions that celebrates the universal truth that no one can get under your skin quite like your own family."

Jonas Brothers Family Roast will see the musical siblings -- Kevin, Nick and Joe -- participating in sketches, songs and special games, before getting roasted (as advertised in the name) by some big-name comics.

Alongside Thompson, the series will also feature special appearances from Pete Davidson, Niall Horan, Gabriel Iglesias, John Legend, Lilly Singh, Jack Whitehall and more.

The Jonas Brothers came together to share the news in an announcement video posted on Monday.

Tom Hanks is heading into the post-apocalyptic future in his new sci-fi drama, Finch. As a lone scientist in a desolate world, Hanks' titular character has very few options when it comes to comrades.

In this exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette, the two-time Oscar winner opens up about his character, and the timeliness of the sci-fi tale's message.

"Finch is the last man on Earth maybe. There’s hints of other people out there but as far as his part of metropolitan St. Louis, he’s the only guy left," Hanks shares. "But he has the greatest companion in the world, he has a dog."

Hanks -- who famously starred with a volleyball sidekick in 2000's Cast Away -- is clearly no stranger to surviving with unusual friends by his side. In this case, he's joined on his futuristic adventure by his dog, Goodyear, and a robot of his own design.

"Finch is an engineer and he has built the robot to help take care of Goodyear. His name is Jeff," Hanks says. "When word of this massive storm comes on, we gotta pile into the family RV and take off to the promised land out west."

Hanks says he feels it's vital for survival to be with others whom you care for -- whether it's another person or if it's a robot and a dog who depend on you.

"It is not human to be alone because in company we find companionship, we find love," Hanks says. "The bond between Finch and Goodyear is one that is based on deep affection and constant understanding. Who doesn’t love a good dog? Even Jeff loves a good dog."

Ultimately, the thing that sets Finch apart from other post-apocalyptic survival dramas is it's message of love and inspiration.

"The beautiful thing about the film is that it’s optimistic, hopeful and it’s just delightful," Hanks shares.

Finch premieres Friday, Nov. 5 on AppleTV+.

Chef Rachel Hargrove came back to Below Deck with unfinished business: confronting Bosun (now First Officer) Eddie Lucas over comments he made on season 8 of the Bravo hit.

"Well, let's just put it this way: He is very lucky that I was in a tiny town in Italy," Rachel tells ET over video chat, reacting to remarks Eddie made about her last season, quotes she didn't hear until the episodes aired while she was in lockdown in Europe. Eddie didn't hold back last season, criticizing Rachel for being unprofessional (she quit the yacht for a night) and taking issue with her drunken antics on crew days off (for which she says she's never apologizing). 

Now, the two are back as the only returning castmates (save for Captain Lee Rosbach) on season 9 -- with Eddie admitting to be scared to work with "bats**t crazy" Rachel again in the premiere episode. 

"You know, what's really funny is, if bats**t crazy is good at their job and is a ride or die b***h, I'm cool with that one," Rachel cracks. "Like, I am my personality. It's never going to change, it doesn't matter."

"I'm not argumentative when it comes to things like that," she admits. "That's his belief. That's his personal views. We all have perceptions of other people and can be vindictive and bulls**t, but I'm totally cool with it. That's his -- at that moment in time -- that's his perception and that's how he felt."

Rachel is quick to point out what she finds to be hypocrisy on Eddie's part, referencing his own "bad behavior" from season 3, when he hooked up with stewardess Rocky Dakota in the crew laundry, while he had a girlfriend back home. "Trying to, like, gaslight and overlap the fact that he f**ked somebody in a laundry room with cameras all around him and then denied it in front of the cameras, too?" she notes. 

Things are tense for the two at the start of season 9, but Rachel says it was important for her to clear the air with her co-star.

"Unfortunately it took a lot of asking to sit down and do it," Rachel teases. "It was one of those moments where was I just like, we really do need to like hash this out because it is affecting me. All of this is now coming to light just before we did the season. We need to discuss this. And how do you feel? Because I don't want to go through this season and all of a sudden, like, watch it and in retrospect, you're talking trash again. Or about anyone and gaslighting anyone, because I think it's unfair."

"Some people agree with my personality, some people don't," she adds. "I believe that you nip things in the bud very quickly, when it's appropriate time, but at the same time, too, have the respect for the other individual. Don't talk s**t behind their back, say it to their face, because they need to know because that's the only way they will actually get through it. And maybe it will change and maybe my approach with that individual will change."

Rachel says viewers will have to wait a beat to see that sit-down, and hints it didn't exactly go perfectly. 

"I've been in yachting so long, I know how to fake it," she offers. "Professionally, I can always put things aside because at the end of the day, I want to make Captain Lee happy. I love him. I respect him. I love my job, actually, even though I say 'f**k this' multiple times. Ignore that."

At this point, Rachel says she and Eddie are co-workers, never friends. "That's the beauty of life, and that's the beauty of being an adult," she says. "Are we going to be BFFs? Are you still on all my social media handles? Maybe."

Eddie beef aside, Rachel is more than excited for viewers to experience season 9 of Below Deck.

"I feel like I'm back, better than ever," she proclaims. "It was a good do-over. ... Now, this go around, I actually get to enjoy it and I'm very happy to be in it, and psychologically there -- really stoked, privy to everything, not focused on things that are going on the outside of me."

Last season, Rachel was preoccupied with tension between herself and her then-boyfriend. The two have since split, with Rachel admitting her doing the show strained their relationship. 

"All my friends are excited because they're like, 'Hey, s**t's not hitting the fan,'" she says of her return to TV. "I'm like, 'No, but it is... in a very good way.'"

From the sound of it, Rachel bonded with her season 9 crew more than the season 8 bunch. She professes her love for new chief stewardess Heather Chase -- she says the newbie is "better" than franchise fan-favorite Kate Chastain! "There's no throwing jabs," she says. "It's legit. She's actually passionate and in love with her job."

Rachel's also a fan of stew Fraser Olender, as well as deckhands Rayna Lindsay and Jake Foulger. "Jakey Poo! He's so funny. I think that -- I'm sorry, but I'm so glad he's on this season, 'cause it's not going to be me [causing problems] this whole time!" Rachel jokes. 

Then there's Captain Sean Meagher, who fills in for Lee, whose arrival is delayed for at least one charter. In the premiere, Sean instills the fear of the sea gods in his crew, informing them that he's not one to correct behavior. Instead, he'll just fire team members who aren't up to his standards.

"I didn't get to sit through that, but the way he came off with me was, he was actually really funny," Rachel says of the temporary captain. "I love bantering with him. I love bantering with Lee, but they're two polar opposites. It's like comparing apples to oranges. They're not the same. My captain is Captain Lee, who's like the old, salty dog. And he's funny. And he's just very dry and quick-witted. And Sean is effervescent and peppy and a go-getter, but in a way where you're like, 'Jesus Christ, get this thing a Xanax.'"

Below Deck air Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.

Created by Shonda Rhimes, Inventing Anna is the upcoming true-crime drama about Anna Sorokin, who, while pretending to be a German heiress named Anna Delvey, conned friends and New York elites out of thousands of dollars with the hope of launching a SoHo House-type lavish art club in various hot spots around the country. The series stars Julia Garner -- and ahead of its 2022 debut, Netflix shared the first official look at the Emmy-winning actress as the grifter at the height of her scheming and then behind bars after her plan fell apart.  

Inspired by the New York magazine article, “How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People,” by Jessica Pressler, whose previous work for the magazine served as the basis for the acclaimed Jennifer Lopez film Hustlers, Inventing Anna follows a journalist named Vivian (Anna Chlumsky) investigating the Instagram-famous con woman to determine if she truly is playing people or just living out the new American dream. Over the course of their time together, the two develop a dark and funny love-hate bond as Anna awaits trial while Vivian tries to figure out the truth behind Anna Sorokin.

In addition to Garner and Chlumsky, the star-studded series also includes Katie Lowes as Rachel, a follower of Delvey’s seemingly inspired by former Vanity Fair employee Rachel Williams, who was stuck with a $60,000 bill for a lavish trip to Marrakesh, Morocco; Laverne Cox as Kacy Duke, a celebrity fitness trainer hired by Sorokin; The Bold Type actress Alexis Floyd as a hotel employee named Neff; and Succession breakout Arian Moayed as Todd, Sorokin’s defense lawyer.  

Rounding out the cast is Anders Holm as Vivian’s husband, Jack; Anna Deavere Smith as aging magazine employee Maud; Shondaland regular Jeff Perry as Lou, another aging magazine employee; Terry Kinney as a war correspondent named Barry; and Jennifer Esposito as Talia Mallay, an owner of a lavish lifestyle brand.  

“Being in Shondaland has been a dream come true,” Cox previously told ET about working with Rhimes. “I’m such a huge fan of [Shonda’s] work, everything she’s about, everything she stands for.” While she couldn’t spoil anything about the series, she adds that filming all around New York City has “been glorious so far. Shonda Rhimes is everything.” 


Inventing Anna will debut on Netflix in 2022.
