Oprah earns four times more than other TV stars

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - When it comes to what pays on U.S. television, talk doesn't come cheap -- nor apparently does a loud mouth.

Financial magazine Forbes on Thursday published a list of the highest-paid TV celebrities, with daytime talk show host Oprah Winfrey leading the way by earning an $260 million between June 2006 and June 2007. Nobody else came close.

Second in the list was Jerry Seinfeld earning $60 million.

Winfrey was joined at the top of the list by another talk show host, David Letterman, who landed at No. 4 by raking in $40 million in the same period from his "Late Night with David Letterman."

Simon Cowell, the arrogant and harshly critical judge on top-rated talent show "American Idol" earned $45 million to land at No. 3, and Donald Trump, whose boisterous exclamation "You're Fired" from reality show "The Apprentice" became part of the pop culture lexicon, was No. 5 with $32 million.

The list shows that in the media arena, it pays to own and produce either all or part of your shows, like Oprah.

That notion becomes abundantly clear in the No. 2 slot, where Jerry Seinfeld sits with $60 million earned mostly from reruns of his co-owned 1990's sitcom "Seinfeld."

Despite the fact that prime-time TV shows win awards and critical acclaim, Forbes Senior Editor Lea Goldman noted that daytime TV and news is where stars rake in the dough.

"Daytime personalities dominate our list of TV's top earners, with most competition among morning and afternoon talk show hosts," said Goldman.

Barbara Walters, another star who owns and co-produces her daytime show "The View," landed at No. 18 with $12 million.

The remaining top 20 is as follows;

6. Jay Leno, $32 million

7. Dr. Phil McGraw, $30 million

8. "Judge" Judy Sheindlin, $30 million

9. George Lopez, $26 million

10. Kiefer Sutherland, $22 million

11. Regis Philbin, $21 million

12. Tyra Banks, $18 million

13. Rachael Ray, $16 million,

14. Katie Couric, $15 million

15. Ellen DeGeneres, $15 million

16. Ryan Seacrest, $14 million

17. Matt Lauer, $13 million

18, Barbara Walters, $12 million

19. Diane Sawyer, $12 million

20. Meredith Vieira, $10 millon

Britney to face hit-and-run charge

LOS ANGELES - Britney Spears legal woes mounted Friday as prosecutors charged her with misdemeanor counts of hit and run and driving without a valid license after she allegedly smashed her car into another in a parking lot in August.

If convicted, the singer could face up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine for each count, said Nick Velasquez, spokesman for the city attorney’s office.

Messages left with Spears’ attorneys were not immediately returned.

Actress Salma Hayek Gives Birth to Baby Girl

Salma Hayek gave birth to a baby girl, Valentina Paloma Pinault, on September 21. "Mother and child are doing well," said publicist Carl Ross in a statement. No further details are released.

It is the first child for the 41-year-old actress, who is engaged to French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault.

Hayek, who has appeared in more than thirty films, is currently enjoying success as an executive producer of the hit U.S. TV series Ugly Betty. She is also chief executive of Ventanazul, a production company she formed with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Inc.

Pinault, 45, is the chief executive officer for luxury goods company PPR SA, which owns such high end labels as Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, and Puma. He has two children from a previous marriage which ended in divorce in 2004.

Alicia Silverstone Naked all for Veggie Ad

Alicia Silverstone would rather go naked than eat meat.

The Clueless star will appear nude in a TV ad campaign advocating vegetarianism, the Associated Press reports.

In the 30-second spots for The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Silverstone, 30, is seen emerging naked from a swimming pool while espousing the positive points of eschewing meat.

Silverstone admitted she hasn't been a health freak for long. "I wasn't always a vegetarian, but I've always loved animals," she said in a statement. "Physically, the effect has been amazing."

Last spring the star told InStyle Home that "steak and doughnuts" were among her staples before she cleaned up her eating habits and went vegan.

"I don't get sick very often and when I do it's for a short period," she told the magazine.

The new ads were set to hit Houston airwaves more than twenty times Wednesday, and PETA claims they chose Houston for the debut because it so often ranks high on lists of cities with the worst eating habits. The Texas city was the sixth-fattest in the nation this year, according to Men's Fitness magazine.

Robin Roberts Ready for Chemo

OJ Simpson has been questioned

O.J. Simpson has been questioned by investigators as a possible suspect in a break-in at a hotel room in a Las Vegas casino, police said Friday.

Sgt. John Loretto of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said there was an allegation of a theft, “involving Simpson as a suspect,” according to CNN. “It is an alleged theft, and he is an alleged suspect.”

Simpson told the Associated Press he took memorabilia that belonged to him from a casino hotel, but didn’t break into the room.

Police spokesman Jose Montoya tells the AP that the break-in was reported late Thursday night at the Palace Station casino and that it involved sports collectibles. No other information was available.

“When they talked to him, Simpson made the comment that he believed the memorabilia was his,” Montoya said. “We’re getting conflicting stories from the two sides.”

After being questioned, Simpson was released, but is still believed to be in Las Vegas, according to Montoya, who said: “We don’t believe he’s going anywhere.”

Investigators in the casino case are scheduled to deliver a report to prosecutors on Friday, Montoya said. Later, the district attorney’s office will decide whether to pursue charges.

Simpson’s attorney, Yale L. Galanter, did not immediately return calls for comment. A spokeswoman for the Palace Station casino also did not immediately return a call for comment.

Simpson, a former NFL star and actor, was acquitted of the 1994 murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman. Later, a jury held him liable for the killings in a wrongful death lawsuit. He has recently penned a controversial fictional book, which hits bookstores Friday, called If I Did It.

Hayden Panettiere shops for lingerie in Beverly Hills

16 September 2007 (Sawf News) - Hayden, Hayden, Hayden. Looks like the girl who plays a cheerleader on the show Heroes could use a little help from wardrobe to pick out some threads. The outdated plastic red shades, the yellow tee shirt and the black flip flops don’t read Hollywood diva as much as it does colorblind girl working at the local Seven-Eleven. While the makeup suits her face, it’s really the last thing people would notice walking down the streets in Beverly Hills. Which incidentally is one of the world’s shopping meccas. Not exactly a good place to dress down.

Coco Chanel once said “I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing her self up a little- if only out of politeness.” Neither do we. Either she got locked out of her walk-in closet, or she’s just come off a bad relationship. Here’s praying the Roberto Cavalli-donning girl is in there somewhere and saves her (and us) from further fashion nightmares. While she’s out buying underwear, a few actual outfits wouldn’t hurt either.

'I'm not adopting four blonde babies,' says Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton at 2007 MTV Video Music Awards

Washington, Sep 16 (ANI): Socialite Paris Hilton has denied reports that she is to adopt four blonde babies.

In a recent interview, the hotel heiress revealed that at the moment, kids were not on her priority list.

"Someone just said that I'm adopting four blonde babies. That's retarded. No, I'm not," People quoted her, as saying.

When asked if she'd like to adopt, Paris said, "Maybe, but I want to have my own children."

Hilton also said that she's stepping up her acting by working with acting coach Ivana Chubbuck for her upcoming movie Repo! The Genetic Opera.

"This is my first time that I've actually taken it seriously. Before, I was just doing it for fun, not really paying attention - not even studying my lines. But this time, I'm serious about it," she said.

"I really tried hard to get this role. I rehearsed. I was the best at the audition. I got this part because I deserved it, and I'm going to make sure I do the best job ever," she added. (ANI)

Angelina Jolie's forever Brad

Angelina Jolie insists she and Brad Pitt will "grow old together".

The Oscar-winning beauty says Brad is the only man that has ever truly understood her, and she loves him more and more each day.

Dismissing rumours the couple's romance has problems, Angelina said: "These rumours don't affect you if you don't pay attention to them. Brad is the first man to understand me and give the impression we are a team. Honesty and trust are fundamental. He shares my point of view.

"The most important thing is being able to grow old together."

Angelina - who met Brad on the set of 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' in 2004 while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston - admits there were problems at first.

She added in an interview with France's Gala magazine: "I recognise there were times when he wanted me to open up, but it is sometimes difficult to do that to the person who shares your nights."

Despite the initial difficulties, Angelina - who has been married twice - says Brad is the ideal man, because he loves being a father.

Angelina gushed: "He is the best father one could wish for. I was resigned to being a single mother, and then he came into my life. I didn't expect him to invest so much time in the role of head of the family.

"He is one of those fathers who knows how to make up bottles of milk, knows how to potty train and all the rest. He is the ideal lover."

The couple have three adopted children, Maddox, six, Pax, three, Zahara, two, as well as 16-month-old daughter Shiloh.

Kate Moss's topless holiday

Kate Moss has been spotted frolicking topless on a yacht in the South of France.

The supermodel is enjoying an all-girl getaway with her actress friend Davinia Taylor on the Cote d'Azur, and had no inhibitions about showing off her assets.

A source said: "Kate spent much of her time in white bikini bottoms which unfastened at the sides. She later changed into a black and yellow bikini."

Kate, 33, left her new boyfriend - 34-year-old The Kills rocker Jamie Hince - back in London where he is working on new material.

The supermodel dived off the yacht for a topless dip, rode on an inflatable rubber-ring and sunbathed in the baking temperatures.

In the evening, she and Davinia went ashore for a meal at top seafood restaurant, Le Sloop.

Kate's ex-boyfriend, drug addict rocker Pete Doherty, spent the weekend in rehab at Wiltshire's Clouds House Clinic.
