-by Mike Finkelstein

Hollywood people earn a lot of money, and sometimes, it’s fun to look at just how they got it all…

Now that 2010 is officially behind us, Vanity Fair has released their annual breakdown of the top 40 Hollywood earners of 2010.  (Think of it as like a tax form, except a lot more entertaining.) It’s pretty awesome, although I’ll admit, I got really thrown off by one person in the top ten…

The list focuses on creative people–actors, directors and producers–specifically in film, and details where exactly the money came from, including fees, wages, bonuses, and old revenues.

Take a look at the top ten below, and click here for the rest of the list.

Chrissy Teigen’s ‘World Famous T***y Biscuit’s’ Receive Some Hilarious Reactions

Published

on

Hey, her biscuits are down there man.

Does your mouth ever water when you watch cooking shows like Barefoot Contessa or 30 Minute Meals? Well if you saw the dough-rolling-hack Chrissy Teigen posted over the weekend, you might be drooling for a whole different reason.

The supermodel mom is not only known for her beauty and her humor, she is a great chef too. Her website CravingsByChrissyTeigen features dozens of fun recipes that all look delicious. Well one recipe you won’t find on her website (although I really hope she puts it in her next cookbook) is her “World Famous Titty Biscuits.” On Twitter, Teigen shared a video where she is rolling out biscuit dough with a wine bottle and let’s just say the blouse she is wearing highlights her biscuits perfectly. Biscuits which have recently been reduced by the way. Teigen took to social media in June to share the news that she would be removing her breast implants to improve her quality of life.

Leave it to Twitter to come up with some priceless reactions to the video of course. Some haters chimed in but we can only assume it’s out of jealousy as they just wish their biscuits were as fluffy as Teigen’s. The rest of the comments were pure comedy. Take a look at some of the funniest.

Kelly Ripa Shared A Sexy Picture Of Marc Consuelos And Warns More Male Nudity To Come!

Published

July’s heat ain’t got nothing on Mr. Consuelos.

Ok let’s be honest when someone shares a thirsty photo of their new man on social media it’s cause for an immediate eye roll…unless of course you’re Kelly Ripa showing off your hunky husband of over twenty years in which case that eye roll turns into tongue wag.

On Wednesday, the Emmy award winning talk show host took to Instagram to show off a photo of her incredibly buff husband Marc Consuelos. The 49-year old actor has bulked up for a two reasons; 1. He plays an ex-fighter on Kingdom which is now available for streaming on Netflix and 2. I needed a new wallpaper on my phone. In any event, the impeccable physique is obviously stunning as is the affection this couple shares after their nearly 25 years of marriage. In her caption Ripa wrote:

“KINGDOM is out on @netflix today! Warning: this show is brilliantly written, beautifully acted and jam packed with male nudity 🔥🔥🔥 you’ve been warned.”

Now that’s a heat advisory I can get behind. Check out the hunky photo below and tune into Kingdom on Netflix!

Celebrate The Last Day Of Pride Month With Megan Hilty’s Beautiful Rendition Of ‘The Rainbow Connection’

Published

on

🎶For all the lovers, the dreamers and LBGT.🎶

With only a few hours left to celebrate the magic of Pride month, the LBGTQ+ heavens opened up and sent down one more gift. Megan Hilty.

The Smash star gave a special Pride performance of the appropriately-themed classic “The Rainbow Connection” for ABC’s LA! Pride and of course she crushed it. The song was first sung by Kermit the Frog in the 1979 film The Muppet Movie and shares a message of hope and inspiration which obviously resonates strongly with the LBGTQ+ community. The only way Hilty’s rendition would be better is if she was covered in Muppet fur honestly.

The Broadway belter captioned the post with a sweet sentiment which read “Happy #pride🌈 kids! It doesn’t end today. Be proud of who you are every day of the year, and find your rainbow connection. 💕✨” And she’s right, every day should be filled with Pride!

Check out the moving performance below and Happy Pride y’all!
