If you’d asked me to guess which couple in the celebr-i-verse made the most money last year, I would have said Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. And I would have been very wrong. According to Forbes‘ list of The World’s Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples, the true owners of the title are Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen. While Tom reeled in an insane $31 million last year—thanks to a $72 million four-year contract extension—Gisele topped him, bringing home $45 million worth of bacon. Together, they earned a whopping $76 million last year. The only celebrity pair that came close was Beyoncé and Jay-Z, who made $72 million between 2010 to 2011. Brad and Angelina came in third, but with a lot less loot—they cumulatively collected $50 million. David and Victoria Beckham ranked fourth with $45 million. And Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart—who aren’t even officially a couple, right?—rounded out the top five with a combined $40 million. Dang, “Twilight” sure did those two well. Now, I recommend not looking at your bank account balance for the next 30 minutes, so as not to fly into a blind rage. [Forbes] Keep reading »
“Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact.”
—Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith refute the report that circulated yesterday that they were splitting up after 13 years of marriage. So will this be one of those cases where the rumor goes away, never to be heard from again, or will this be a Nick Lachey/Jessica Simpson case where six months later they say initial reports were actually true? We shall have to wait and see. But I am betting $5 on Will and Jada making it work. [People]

Hilary Duff is pregnant—which is awesome. [My inner-Cathy disagrees! -- Editor] However, her pregnancy might have cost her a plum role in an indie flick. Hilary had been set to play bankrobber Bonnie Parker in “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde,” a re-imagining of the classic outlaw tale. This would have been a big deal, considering that the role was played by heavy-hitter Faye Dunaway in 1967. However, the makers of the new version say they are recasting, suspiciously close to when Hilary announced that she is preggers. A source with the film said, “Hilary won’t be available until next June. If we could wait we would.” Ouch. [Jezebel]
