Who makes more than an uber-celebrity who earns millions per movie, album, or TV season? Two uber-celebrities who just happen to be married. Forbes is always giving us a behind-the-scenes peek at famous finances—don’t tell us you weren’t surprised by the top-earning dead celebrities—and their latest list shows the famous couples who made the most from June 2008 to June 2009. Topping the list—actually, clobbering the list (they made almost twice what the #2 couple grossed)—are Jay-Z and Beyonce. Together, they banked $122 million smackeroos. Interestingly, Beyonce is the one who brought home the most bacon—she earned $87 million to his $35 million. Also notable: While this is a massive amount of money, it’s actually much less than these two made last year, when they pulled in $162 million cumulatively.
So which other couples gave them a run (or halfhearted jog) for their money? It’s not who you think. Keep reading »

Over the weekend, Josh Duhamel and Fergie renewed their wedding vows — only one year after they’d originally tied the knot. But don’t pop the bubbly just yet. Although Duhamel set up the surprise ceremony, the enduring gesture comes only months after a stripper alleged that she and Duhamel had an affair, a claim both Fergie and Duhamel have denied. Will the renewals be enough to heal their marriage? Experts tell PopEater that the next year will determine the strength of their relationship.
After a Hollywood couple ties the knot, hurls the bouquet and sets off for years (or weeks) of wedded bliss, some decide to relive those wedding day butterflies and renew their vows. But how soon is too soon? Read more … Keep reading »
Taking the whole tights-as-pants trend one step further, Blake Lively wore these thigh-high, faux-leather Stella McCartney boots as tights to the You Know You Want It book party Monday night. That’s right — she wore boots as her bottoms. I wonder how long it takes to get those on and off … [via NYMag.com] Keep reading »
Happy Hump Day! Let’s speculate about another wild rumor, shall we? This one via BuzzFoto:
If this is true, it’s just plain crazy. We hear that this ‘married couple’ is involved in more of a business arrangement than a romance. It’s not that unusual, since people have been using marriage for many things throughout history. We just think it’s sad there are actual transactions involved here – the monetary kind, trust us, not the sexual kind. One of the partners is paying the other a hefty stipend as an incentive to stay hitched. The receiving partner needs the money because of a drug habit and gambling issues and the other is inclined to give it to fight off rumors of sexuality/bad past/unattractiveness. Both in the relationship are celebrities, both have been up against speculation, and both are all about the PR to keep the ball rolling on their different needs being fulfilled by the marriage. Not Katie and Tom.

Despite what Us Weekly says, Jessica Simpson and aging rocker Billy Corgan seem to be hanging out still. This photo — plus one more, after the jump — were posted on Twitter and show the pop singer staring rather adoringly at her baldy beau. This makes about as much sense to me as ice in a glass of wine, i.e., NO sense whatsoever. [Star Magazine] Keep reading »
Jennifer Love Hewitt
went on “Lopez Tonight” to promote her book, The Day I Shot Cupid: Hello, My Name Is Jennifer Love Hewitt and I’m a Love-aholic
, and revealed that there’s a chapter about “vagazzling” your nether regions. Apparently Love had her lady flower covered in Swarovski crystals after she split up with someone so it looked “like a little disco ball down there.”
“I was feeling awful, I had been through a horrible breakup, and I was like, ‘Ugh, this is just awful, and I need something to make myself feel better,’ and it was the one thing I had never tried before after a breakup.”
Heal a broken heart by decorating your crotch? Whatever takes your mind off what’s-his-name, I suppose. [Lopez Tonight via E! Online] Keep reading »
In an effort to drive unemployed people totally insane, The Daily Beast has compiled a list of how much celebrities get paid to Tweet. We already told you that Kim Kardashian makes at least $10,000 every time she tweets about a company. And let me refresh your memory: You were majorly bummed out about it. After the jump, prepare to calculate how many 140-character sentences you’d need to compile to buy a house, if only you were famous. Keep reading »
