Alan Thicke died in December 2016 and you’d think seventeen months might be enough time for loved ones to fight over the deceased’s money and move on with their lives, but his widow Tanya Callau is still fighting over money with his sons Robin and Brennan Thicke.
Claire Foy, the main crown-wearer in Netflix’s titular The Crown, has finally given her thoughts on the biggest scandal to come out of the show. Sorry Princess Margaret and your implied-nude birthday portrait, you’ve officially been bumped to the runner-up spot.
It’s been just over a year since Courtney Stodden announced she was officially done with her creepy husband Doug Hutchison. But before she starts dating another man who remembers tuning into the pilot episode of Cheers and the taste of New Coke, she’s got to get divorced first. That is, if either of them can even afford it.
People says that Jodie Sweetin has been ordered to pay her ex-husband $2,800 a month in child support. No, not the one who went to jail (that’s her ex-fiancé) or the husband she married at 20. We’re talking about the one with the old-timey name that she split from after a year of marriage, Morty Coyle.
Jodie and Morty, which sounds like a TGIF sitcom that never was, were married for a year between 2012 and 2013. They share a 7-year-old daughter Beatrix (she also shares a 9-year-old daughter Zoie with her ex-husband Cody Herpin). Last Friday, documents were filed showing that Jodie will pay Morty $2,800 a month until Beatrix graduates high school or becomes emancipated.
Jodie and Morty have been fighting over money since their divorce was finalized in August 2016. In October, Morty claimed Jodie was bringing in $700,000 a year and demanded more money than the $1,864 he was getting for Beatrix every month. Last month, Jodie filed an income report stating that her gross income for 2016 was $437,349, and that she makes closer to $43,000 a month from her Fuller House wages, and self-employment.
She also claimed that her monthly expenses are $15,262, with about $28,352 left over.
I’m still a little shook that Jodie Sweetin only makes a little over $40,000 a month. Based on the fact that reruns of Full House refuse to die, I always assumed she made at least $1.7 million a month from residual checks. But even more shocking is that she isn’t bringing in the big money from repeat airings of the second season of Pants-Off, Dance-Off. You mean to tell me PODO doesn’t air nightly on some cable access channel in a country like Poland? How rude!
The House of Mouse is cranking up Take That today and crooning out “Rule The World” because it can apparently buy and sell us all. Its deal to buy a healthy chunk of 21st Century Fox means Mickey And Minnie will be EVERYWHERE!
CNBC says Disney is reaching a deal to acquire Fox’s television production and studio assets. While I’m sure Minnie Mouse and Donald Duck could do a better job than any of those hyenas on Fox News, the deal will apparently leave the news and sports assets still under Rupert Murdoch’s control. Whew! How else would he pay for Jerry Hall’s highlights?! Comcast is also in talks to buy off the Fox assets, but apparently the Disney negotiations are way further along. Thank God. Comcast can barely work my Internet, so how in HAIL are they going to run something else?
The deal would basically give Disney channels like National Geographic Channel, as well as regional sports networks, movie studios and stakes in Hulu and Sky. The value of those assets is estimated to be north of $60 billion. What’s left for Rupert? The Fox broadcast network, Fox Sports, and the news and business news divisions. I’m a little shocked he’d want to hold onto Sean Hannity like that, but Disney was apparently only offering one of those giant turkey legs from Disney World in exchange for him. Allegedly.
