Joker is making news today, and thankfully it’s not for the reason people were nervous about leading up to the premiere last Friday. Reports from the weekend’s box office are in, and it looks like the only negative press Warner Bros. has to deal with is whatever yikes-worthy shit comes out of Todd Phillips or Joaquin Phoenix’s mouths. Because Joker broke a bunch of records and made a ton of money.
Because there are people out there who still think the Kardashian’s faces are natural, there are people out there who think Kim Kardashian got her body by pouring it into a blend of Spandex and Lycra. Kim launched a line of shapewear called
Kimono SKIMS. After some rebranding and tag trouble (the solution of which still hasn’t technically been addressed yet), SKIMS went on sale yesterday. The exact same day Rihanna debuted her new underwear and Apple launched the iPhone 11. Wow, what a coincidence. Well, even with Rihanna’s underwear show and a shiny new phone, Kim still managed to draw in enough interest in her girdles to make $2 million in sales within minutes.
The Hollywood Reporter claims to know what everyone on BH90210 are getting paid. The good news for poor little rich girl turned poor girl Tori Spelling is that she’s one of them. Shhh – don’t tell her numerous creditors.
When the news broke yesterday that legendary socialite, heiress, and denim designer Gloria Vanderbilt had died at the age of 95, I’m sure most people might have said something like, “Poor Anderson Cooper, my thoughts are with him at this time.” And I’m sure there was a much smaller percentage of people whose thoughts turn to tackiness during such times, and wondered just how much cash Anderson was set to inherit. But gold diggers with their eyes set on The Silver Fox better get used to the idea of going after Anderson’s money and Anderson’s money alone, because there are no designer denim dollars in his future.
Rihanna may currently be focusing all her energy on being a makeup mogul and a luxury clothing designer, but first and foremost, Rihanna is a singer. “If that’s so, then WHERE’S THE NEW MUSIC????” screams her fans every second of every day. But Rihanna is still technically a singer-slash-everything else she does, which would be why she recently found herself being crowned the richest woman in music by Forbes. And when they say rich, they aren’t kidding. These are some “Celine Dion, who?” numbers.
Almost one year ago, as Today interns were packing up Matt Lauer’s things into a box while security deactivated his ID card, the NBC executed were trying to figure out how many zeros would go on his going-away check. Matt still had a year and a half on his $20 million a year contract, and he wanted all of it. He reportedly didn’t get anything. Megyn Kelly too has gotten the ol’ heave-ho from Today, and according to Deadline, NBC doesn’t want to pay up.
