AMY SCHUMER IS A BIGGER DEAL THAN WE REALIZED

When we walked out of her movie “Snatched” we were ready to give up on Amy Schumer. It was all just too dumb and embarrassing for the actors involved. Too vulgar and lacking subtlety. Sometimes Amy IS really funny, but all too often she relies on imitating male comics with gross humor. But since we learned that she is the FIRST AND ONLY female comic to make the Forbes list of Highest Paid Comics (in 2016) we’re willing to make allowances and forgive her shortcomings. She’s smart and making progress for women in the boys’ club world of comedy and we need more women like her!

MOST OVERPAID ACTORS: ACCOMPLISHMENT OR CURSE?

We can’t stop thinking about Forbes list of The Most Overpaid Actors in Hollywood. Specifically the actors whose films didn’t make enough money to justify their absurd salaries. Here’s the list if you haven’t seen it:

I Johnny Depp (Topped list second year in a row!)
2 Will Smith
3 Channing Tatum
4 Will Ferrell
5 George Clooney
6 Adam Sandler (We’re surprised he isn’t first every year)
7 Mark Wahlberg
8 Leonardo DiCaprio
9 Julia Roberts
10 Bradley Cooper

Our first thought is sad – only one female is on the list, emphasizing the fact that women are grossly underpaid in Hollywood.
Our second thought was: is this an EMBARRASSMENT or an ACCOMPLISHMENT for those on the list? Are the massively overpaid actors secretly thrilled at getting those huge undeserved salaries or disappointed at their boxoffice failures? It could go either way, but we’re betting they’re proud to be on the list. One thing for sure- these actors’ agents are bragging all over the office!

KANYE WEST CAN OUTSELL THE POPE – BUT NOT DIDDY!

Kanye West uses the art of distraction nearly as well as a certain presidential candidate. He recently bragged that he was “bigger than the Pope” by pointing out that he sold more t-shirts at his Madison Square Garden performance than the Pope did. He certainly did NOT want to acknowledge Forbes new list of The Forbes Five – the highest earning hip hop artists of the year. Kanye’s rival, Diddy was number one, followed by Dre, Jay Z, 50 Cent, and Birdman. Kanye, despite outselling the Pope with his overpriced t-shirts and bragging incessantly, didn’t even make it into the TOP TEN!

THE ASTONISHING WORLD OF ROBERT DOWNEY JR

AG003708_33downeycut

Robert Downey Jr is walking proof that you CAN turn your life around. He went from hitchhiking in his pajamas in Marina Del Rey after escaping from rehab in the 90’s, to being the Highest Paid Actor in Hollywood for two years in a row according to Forbes magazine. From 1996 to 2002, Downey was arrested and rehabbed numerous times for drug offenses, and also spent a year in prison. So it’s pretty amazing that he earned 75 million dollars between June 2013, and June 2014, thanks to his Iron Man and Avengers movies. It helps that he’s an extremely likeable guy. When Jimmy Kimmel heard about the Forbes report, he remarked ”He’s come a long way – I remember when he was just the highest actor in Hollywood.

GISELE BUNDCHEN: SOMETIMES IT HURTS TO BE RICH AND FAMOUS

0reproducao77

Ah, the trials and tribulations of being a top supermodel! Forbes magazine placed Gisele Bundchen as number one earner on their prestigious Supermodel Rich List. According to Forbes calculations, she took in 42 million dollars in spite of having a baby last year. Her earnings are estimated according to photoshoots, licensing, beauty and fashion contracts, etc. Little did Gisele realize that this #1 success title would arouse the intense interest of the IRS. Yup, she’s being audited! And she’s not happy.

TWO REASONS WHY CELINE DION DIDN’T MAKE THE FORBES TOP EARNING WOMEN IN MUSIC LIST

Celine Dion brought her family backstage to visit the cast of “Beauty and the Beast” in Las Vegas where she too is currently performing at Caesar’s Palace. Her twins Eddy and Nelson are one and a half and they look more like her 11 year old son Rene and her husband every day. According to the LA Times, Celine was the top earning woman in music for the decade ending in 2010, but she didn’t make the top ten this year according to Forbes. That’s what happens when you take time off to raise babies. Don’t worry, she still has plenty of money to buy shoes…

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
