Forbes just released its annual list of highest paid actors, and Philly boy Bradley Cooper makes an impressive show at No. 3. Forbes estimates he made a cool $43 million last year:
Have you ever wondered what the ladies on Real Housewives of [Fill in the Location] are making? With Nene Leakes running around talking about how rich she is, it’s bound to be a hefty sum—well at least for some of them.
Radar Online has the scoop on what the cast of Real Housewives of New Jersey are pulling in, and Teresa Giudice is by far the top earner, raking in a whopping $700,000 for the current season. Unfortunately, it seems like that’s going out just as quick as it’s coming in. According to Radar, “Most of that money is going to pay for Joe and Teresa’s legal fees. There will also be expected fines assessed to the couple when they are finally sentenced in September, and Teresa has been told that could be up to $250,000.”
After last week’s announcement that the ever-opinionated Rosie O’Donnell will be returning to daytime television’s The View, there’s been heavy speculation about who will join her and Whoopi Goldberg on the roundtable. Joy Behar, one of the former co-hosts, suggested on an interview with Don Lemon of CNN that the show is “going for fireworks rather than camaraderie.” And, boy, if any of the rumors are true, there will be explosions!
We rounded up some of the most talked-about co-host rumors, plus added in a few picks of our own. In short, it’s everything you need to know about who’ll sit next to Whoopi and Rosie (and what kind of shit-talking will start from day one of the new season.)
Zach Braff is best known as the affable Dr. Dorian on the long-running TV comedy Scrubs, but the actor/writer/director has also made his own films, beginning with 2004′s Garden State. Making the press rounds in support of his newest effort, the grammatically questionable Wish I Was Here, the 39-year-old South Orange native has clearly grown in the decade between film releases: The film concerns a winsome father of two whose acting career and marriage are floundering as he finds out that his father, played by Mandy Patinkin, is dying of cancer.
We caught up with him on the phone from a Chicago hotel relatively early in the morning.
Last week, Britney Spears admirers all but hit the proverbial fan when an un-autotuned version of her single “Alien” leaked on the internet. WARNING: it’s bad. Really, really bad:
Philly’s Bradley Cooper is among 20 new stars to hit Forbes‘ annual Celebrity 100 list. The list ranks the world’s most “powerful stars in the worlds of movies, TV, books, music and sports based on their estimated earnings and metrics that track fame, including social media power and impact.” While the proper list isn’t due out until Monday, Forbes offers a peek at what our Oscar-nominated golden boy pulled in this year:
Two films with local ties are on their way to earning top spots at the weekend box office: Philly comedian Kevin Hart’s Think Like a Man Too, and Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys, which follows the rise of Franki Valli and the Four Seasons, and stars Villanova grad Vincent Piazza. More from Variety:
We don’t often have reason to feature Deputy Mayor Rich Negrin around here. This week’s Comic Con convention just changed that:
