Today Forbes released their list of the highest paid women in primetime and I’m sure that more than one of the names will completely shock you. Tyra Banks took first place with her America’s Next Top Model hosting gig (making over $30 million in a twelve month period), and was followed by the Snow Princess herself, Katherine Heigl, whose earnings will also shock you. The complete list is here:
- Tyra Banks: $30 million
- Katherine Heigl: $18 million
- Marg Helgenberger: $9.5 million
- Eva Longoria: $9 million
- Mariska Hargitay: $8.5 million
- Julia Louis-Dreyfus: $8 million
- Maura Tierney: $8 million
- Tina Fey: $7 million
- Marcia Cross: $6.2 million
- Jennifer Love Hewitt & Ellen Pompeo (tie): $6 million
For the most part these ranking make sense, except for Tina Fey’s #8 spot, as she also writes and produces her hit show 30 Rock. Also, Jennifer Love Hewitt can still rack in 6 million a season for a TV show? Who knew? Do people still care about her? I was unaware. I’m also a bit surprised that a Seinfeld alum like JLD isn’t worth more than Heigl, who beside being a complete brat on and off the set of Grey’s, only makes crappy romantic comedies these days.
Tony Parker got a little handsy with his scantily clad wife, Eva Longoria, on board a yacht in San Tropez.
In fairness, I was one of the many people who thought these two would never last. So far, they seem to be beating the odds. I’m happy for them. I really think they’ll be together another couple of years, even.
OMG you guys did you see what I did there? With that headline? Because Eva Longoria and Tony Parker are at Cannes and they’re kissing? Jesus Christ I am so unbelievably funny.
OK really though if this headline prevents just one of you from pronouncing “Cannes” with an ‘s’ sound this week, it will all be worth it.
Eva Longoria’s hubby — who is originally from France — has purchased the second-largest stake of ASVEL, France’s most titled professional basketball team, and he will, he says, begin serving immediately as the club’s Director of Operations. Not too shabby for a 26-year-old.
“Why not, why not?” Parker answered, when asked if playing for the French club itself was in his plans. “When I’m 36, 37 years old, who knows how my NBA will go. Why not play one more farewell year in France afterwards? I’ve raised the subject with Eva, and she has nothing against living in France.”
Parker also described his intention to expand his current Tony Parker Basketball Clinic operations around ASVEL’s home base in Villeurbane, a Lyons suburb, citing another celebrity athlete as model. “I’d like to center them as a training center in Lyons, something like David Beckham’s [soccer program].”
I’m very impressed with Tony’s decisions to expand his empire at a young age and invest in something other than his athletic skill, but I’m also very amused that he thinks he’ll be married to Eva Longoria ten years from now. It seems his long-range planning is strong in some areas and weak in others.
People said they’d never last, but Tony Parker and Eva Longoria Parker were all snuggles and kisses at the New Year’s party she hosted at Beso in LA.
You gotta admit, they’re totally adorable together.
They wear Spanx!
Eva Longoria was totes busted flashing her Spanx as she got into the car after a party for her cover of Allure.
Okay, listen up ladies, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret: If you have any complaints about the shape of your legs or your stomach or your butt, and you’re not wearing Spanx, the joke’s on you. As someone with a lifelong Buddha belly, I swear by the things. It’s like getting tummy lipo for 1/100th of the price and none of the messy surgery — the only downside is you miss out on an opportunity to potentially meet a single plastic surgeon, but whatever. You can order them online here (Spanx, that is, not single plastic surgeons … if anyone finds that website, please let me know.) Highly recommended, and longtime Hollywood secret. See, girls? Even megastars don’t always have perfect curves.
A bunch of peeps were at Eva’s party, including Victoria Beckham, Hayden Panettiere, Rosario Dawson, Felicity Huffman, Lake Bell and Heidi Klum.
On Friday, Victoria Beckham took son Cruz on a little shopping trip along Rodeo.
And she brought along — gasp! — Eva Longoria?
And Eva is holding Cruz’s hand?
Ack, the betrayal!!!!
What happened to Victoria’s longtime shopping buddy, Katie Holmes? Were Posh and Becks finally scared off by the Cruise’s attempts to convert them to Scientology? Were they bitter at having been replaced by the more racially diverse Pinkett-Smiths? Has Tom Cruise finally put his foot down, forbidding Katie from leaving the house outside his presence? Ever since they got back to the States after Tom was filming in Germany, Katie has basically never been photographed without Tom. There are a handful of exceptions, but they almost all involve Katie promoting Mad Money.
What happened to this shopping friendship??
What on earth could possibly explain Posh going shopping with anyone other than Katie?
