Who is going to have to pay through the nose to stay in the closet? Sometimes a gay actor will marry a member of the opposite sex in the hopes that it will boost their hetero credibility and expand the range of roles offered to them. The trouble with this strategy is that if the relationship doesn’t last, the ex has a tremendous amount of leverage over the actor. Such is the case of this network TV star whose fake marriage is over. The star’s attorney is trying to get their client to settle quickly and quietly to prevent the ex from spilling secrets. However, the star is now weighing the hefty cost of paying off the ex versus outing themselves.
Which professional athlete from a major city is playing Scrooge this holiday season? He makes millions every year from his sport, and millions more in product endorsements because of his superstar status. He certainly makes sure that he and loved ones live the good life. When it comes to giving to others, though, he is certainly less than generous. Instead of cash bonuses for his staff, he gave them an assortment of products that he received for free from the companies he endorses. And his total contributions to charities this year? Less than he makes in 15 minutes. Bah, humbug.
Which celebrity fired her stylist after a screaming match? She was furious that all her money had failed to land her a place on even a second-tier Best Dressed List. She called the stylist and let loose a string of obscenities. The stylist then made a comment about how the clothes would have looked better if the client hadn’t gained a few pounds. The client then fired her on the spot.
Which under-30 celebrity with a squeaky-clean reputation is hiding some dark secrets? A former boyfriend is threatening to expose some unsavory details about her past, including a juvenile criminal act, short-term drug use, and some very personal photos that were taken from her laptop computer.

Which politician will likely take their entire family down with them as a scandal unfolds? Once investigators start following the money trail, expect a whole closetful of drugs and alcohol and dirty money skeletons to come tumbling out in a disgraceful and ruinous heap. BTW, the politician is not a Governor.
Which celebrity’s love life is taking a very surprising twist? This famous actor dated at least one other celebrity before settling down with his beautiful wife. He comes across as a nice family guy, but the truth is that he is deeply unhappy about being tied down, and has indulged in various forms of negative behavior over the years, including multiple affairs. If he does divorce, he will gain his freedom, but his wife will certainly walk with the kids and a huge chunk of his money. The real shocker here is that an actress with whom our actor had an affair may not be the only one in the picture. The wife recently discovered that her husband has also been trading racy text messages with another celebrity. A very closeted male celebrity.
Which young actor is finding it hard to stay out of trouble? This celebrity is young, handsome, and parties too much. So far there’s been an incident with his car, an insurance fraud investigation, and an accusation of destruction of property at one of the hotels at which he has stayed. Most of these incidents have not made the headlines. California criminal defense lawyers must be lining up outside his door anticipating the lucrative stream of income this troublemaker will provide over the next few years. bg
This barely serviceable singer from a barely serviceable group does have B+ name recognition while the group itself has probably A+ name recognition. Anyway, our singer has been throwing quite a few tantrums lately including walking off stage well before the set is over. Mostly these are because of her drug habit. Coke and meth are her drugs of choice. The bigger problem is that our singer is convinced that her significant other who is many times richer will take care of her if she gets kicked out of the group. Maybe, but some of the other girls he has been cheating with may not agree with her viewpoint. cd
This A list comedian with A+ name recognition apparently can’t be bothered with parking meters or valets or parking garages. Instead he seems to get some kind of perverse thrill of accumulating as many parking tickets as he can. He always pays his tickets, but just hates looking around for a parking spot or finding change for meters. Thus he parks his car where he wants for as long as he wants. Total amount of money spent on parking tickets last year? About $40,000. That total includes his auto being towed on average of about once a month when he parked in a fire zone. It also averages out to about one parking ticket per day for an entire year.
NY Daily News – Which publicity-loving socialite has a set of parents-in-law who can’t keep up with their bills? The Upper East Side couple keep moving from apartment to apartment to avoid paying their obligations, including more than $30,000 in medical bills. One posh Park Avenue doctor has even hired a private investigator to track down the pair’s current residence to get them to pay up. Their daughter-in-law still thinks they’re flush with cash and, even though she doesn’t have any income of her own, continues to spend, spend, spend.
B-list film actor. He has tried his hand at television and was on one hit, but everything else has been pretty much a loser. Well, our actor lives on a street with some people who enjoy having parties at their house. Our actor decided to earn some extra money for himself so about two years ago he started valet parking cars for his neighbors when they have a party. He apparently got a thrill with the looks on the faces of people when they saw who was parking their car. He can’t make it to every party, and so has actually started a company that valets for people having parties. But, whenever he can he still loves doing it.
Which celebrity wife is leaving her celebrity husband because he can’t support her over-the-top lifestyle anymore? Her husband was a high flyer who provided her with multiple homes, cars, jewelry, international travel, and financial support for her own enterprise. Now that he’s having money problems, she is looking to bail. He is begging her to stick out this tough period with him, but she has already told friends that she has her eye on a replacement. bg
This B- list R&B singer just had her second abortion that her A list producer/singer boyfriend made her get. He says he doesn’t want anymore kids and that if she wants to be with him then she needs to stay childless. I don’t know if she is on birth control or not. I just know the details of what happened. She did get a nice $200,000 piece of bling after the first abortion. No word on what she got after this most recent one. cd
This female best selling author got into some serious debt because she is addicted to gambling. With casinos hounding her for payment, she turned to a “friend” to help her out. The friend gladly paid off the entire debt to the casinos, but in return got our author to sign over any and all future rights from her books. This author has always been reluctant to have her books appear as films because of some bad previous experiences, but now, she really has no choice because she gave up all the rights. I would predict a flood of made for television type fare over the next few years all based on her books. Oh, and she is still gambling. cd
EOnline – MT is a TV titan whose return to the boob tube was so explosive he can’t keep up with all the money his network’s throwing at him to stay put this time. Too bad all that cash can’t buy some sex education. MT’s former bedmates tell us the dude can’t even put on his prophylactics correctly. When you’re that rich, guess you really can’t do anything by yourself.
This recently divorced B list actor on a hit network show lost most of his money in his divorce, bought real estate he could barely afford, spending every night out and not saving a penny. When the writer’s strike came along, all of the furniture he had been leasing was taken from him. He was living in a 5,000 square foot home with a television and a chair. When his castmates heard about his plight and that his house was going to be foreclosed they took up a collection and raised enough to pay his mortgage for the next year. Instead of paying off his debt, he has been spending all their kindness money on hotels and travel to Las Vegas, just thinking that his next financial payday is right around the corner.
