Hey, you'd be smiling like that, too, if you earned an estimated $165 million from May 2011 to May 2012 and had a net worth in the ballpark of $2.5 billion. Forbes announced its annual Hollywood's Highest-Paid Women list and, once again, Oprah Winfrey has come out on top. And while it's no big surprise that "America's only African-American billionaire" is still earning the big bucks, it's impressive that the 58-year-old media mogul stayed atop over this particular year.
After ending her wildly successful syndicated show on ABC, Winfrey struggled to stay relevant as her OWN network floundered in the ratings. The magazine reports that Winfrey, who had to put the ax to The Rosie Show earlier this year, "has yet to take a salary at OWN, so her sources of revenue are now the shows she produces through her Harpo production company (like Dr. Phil and Rachael Ray), her satellite radio station and her magazine." Still, even that has been a struggle for the current Forbes 400 cover girl: back in April it was estimated by Publishers Information Bureau that O magazine was down 24.1 percent in ad pages from 2011.
Forbes predicts that if her business ventures continue to perform like this, Winfrey (who also topped their Highest-Paid Celebrity list for the fourth year in a row) won't come in at No. 1 next year. (If only she earned income from this gif!)
So which lady could take the reins come 2013? Believe it or not, Britney Spears. Yes, the X Factor judge may just be the ultimate comeback kid, as she ranked second on the list of Hollywood's Highest-Paid Women, earning an estimated $58 million thanks to touring, her fragrance line, and strong album sales. Still, Spears, and everyone else, would have some major catching up to do, as Winfrey still outperformed her financially by $107 million. Trailing Winfrey and Spears is singer Taylor Swift, who can set her face to perpetual stun, as she is the youngest woman on the list and brought in roughly $57 million from May 2011 to 2012 — enough to put her at No. 3. Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres came in at No. 4 with around $53 million, while pop star Rihanna tied her by earning the same amount thanks to her radio dominance over the past year. Rounding out the rest of the top 10 are Lady Gaga ($52 million), Jennifer Lopez ($52 million), Gisele Bundchen ($45 million), Katy Perry ($45 million), and Judge Judy Sheindlin ($45 million). Surprisingly and noticeably absent from the list: Kristen Stewart (who made Forbes' list of the Highest-paid Actresses in Hollywood back in June) Beyoncé, Adele, Miley Cyrus, and those ubiquitous Kardashians.

All right Gleeks, we need to talk. Let’s reminisce together for a moment.
Remember way back when in season two when we got our first glimpse of the Dalton Academy Warblers? We saw a sea of navy blue and crimson suits swaying back and forth while Darren Criss, adorable smile and all, sang a beautiful musically-stripped down version of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream.” Every girl and their gay best friend flooded the Internet with their “ooh’s” and “ahh’s” of admiration for this thing called a cappella and we’ll admit we too were thrilled by its resurgence as the new cool trend.
Although a cappella, is far from being considered “new,” there is something awe-inspiring about music that requires no instruments or synthesizers, only the sounds that can be naturally created through our mouths. So imagine our genuine squeals of excitement when we learned that there is a new movie out that has linked the unique skills of a cappella singing with a group of highly relatable (and not to mention attractive) new characters.
Pitch Perfect combines the underdog essence of Glee, the high stakes spirit of Bring It On, the snarky yet quotable-ness of Mean Girls and the 80’s-loving nostalgia that Easy A was built upon. Basically the musical geniuses who created Pitch Perfect have grabbed bits and pieces from our favorite DVD-worthy movies and remixed them into a refreshingly harmonious new flick.
From the hilarious audition scene, the new staple in practically every teen movie, to Torrance Shipmans’s cheer-tastic inspired "aca"-isms, (i.e. Aca-cuse me? Hands in aca-bitches! Aca-awkward…) Pitch Perfect creates a flawless big-screen option for the millions of Glee lovers out there. This movie not only acknowledges our guilty pleasures, it encourages them! Case in point: When the Bellas, aka the musical heroines of the film, sing Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” you can't help but smile. We can thank the summer of 2009 for bringing forth the song that is so bad it almost hurts, yet every one knows it’s nearly impossible not to belt out those oh-so catchy lyrics when we’re driving alone in our cars.
For those of you that are still holding an aca-grudge and are worried that this movie is trying to steal Glee’s thunder, by all means please read on. This movie is not Glee. However, it does celebrate all the quirky and fun characteristics that have made the FOX show a mega-hit over the past three years. Pitch Perfect contains an entire season’s worth of the excitement surrounding sectionals, regionals and nationals, but neatly jam-packs the drama into 112 minutes. The soundtrack features a perfect blend of top 40 hits with a few well-placed gems from the 80’s and 90’s sprinkled throughout. In addition, the film showcases 7 brilliant mashups, a musical feat that all Glee fans can appreciate and enjoy.
Gleeks will come to the theaters for the concept but they’ll stay and smile because of the characters. But not to worry, there are no McKinley copy-cats in this cinematic adventure. We can assure you that you won’t be sitting in the theater thinking to yourself, “Oh there’s Kurt…I guess she’s the “New Rachel”… And seriously that girl is acting just like Brittany!” Instead you will find a healthy blend of grounded yet charismatic college students who have banded together in hopes of being the best. Yes, that does sound a little Glee-esque, but the characters are much more complicated then that.
The movie centers on Beca (Anna Kendrick) an edgy, and slightly snarky aspiring deejay who would much rather be scrumming it in Los Angeles than getting a free-ride to the college where her dad teaches. After being forced to partake in an extracurricular activity, Becca decides that joining the Barden Bellas, an all-girl a cappella group, is the lesser of many evils.
The Bellas feature a typical ragtag group of gals who, after a rough start, come together to be sensational. Gleeks, think The Troubletones but with a college twist. (Oh yeah, it’s that good!) Every one of the Bellas has their little something that makes her special. Chloe (Brittany Snow) is the keeper of the peace, Stacie (Alexis Napp) is the sex-crazed E! enthusiast, Lilly (Hana Mae Lee) is the soft-spoken psycho, Cynthia Rose (Ester Dean) is the girl who likes girls, and leading the pack is the tyrannical Aubrey (Anna Camp) who should really take the phrase “say it, don’t spray it” more seriously. Oh and who could forget Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson)? The self-proclaimed best singer in Tasmania who enjoys mermaid dancing, bikini carwashes and stealing the spotlight.
Leading the Bella’s cross-campus rivals, The Treblemakers, is Bumper (Adam Devine) a highly sarcastic, self-obsessed, burrito thrower and Jesse (Sklar Astin) the swoon-worthy new addition to the group who is down to earth and oozes loveable yet dorky charm. Oh and in case you were ever wondering what happened to Superbad’s McLovin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) in his college years, this movie has the hilarious answer. When the two groups go head-to-head multiple times through-out the film, many Lima lovers will wish the New Directions would have more interaction with their rivals because the result is side-clutching, can’t catch your breath laughter. All in all, Pitch Perfect is a wonderful celebration of music and is pure movie-going pleasure. Curious viewers can consider this new insta-classic to be in the same key as Glee, but keep in mind Pitch Perfect is strumming on a completely separate, yet equally delightful chord.
Pitch Perfect opens in select theaters Friday, September 28 and everywhere else October 5.

Against all odds, Two and a Half Men has returned for a 10th season, with Emmy-winner Jon Cryer, Ashton Kutcher, and the occasional appearance by "the half' Angus T. Jones delivering gross out humor that's solidified the sitcom as one of the safest raunchy shows in modern TV history.
What's in store for this season? If the Season 10 premiere is any indication, more of the same (and yet, in true Two and a Half Men, the completely unexpected). Here are the jokes that blew my mind in tonight's first episode, "I Changed My Mind About the Milk":
"Now he's a fuzzball catching the clap from a whore in Tijuana"
In the last episode of Season 9, Jake voluntarily shipped himself off to the military. Now his role on the show has been reduced to a Skype phone call and jokes about killing terrorists. Thankfully, Berta picks up his slack with an off-color crack about how he'll inevitably contract a venereal disease while randomly sleeping with women wherever he's stationed. If you were unaware, that's what members of the military do in their spare time.
"I have a vibrator named Michael Bolton!"
After failing to woo his longtime girlfriend Zoey with a production of a proposal (fireworks! guitar! Michael Bolton!), Walden is dismissed with a tearful "no." When he returns home with Michael Bolton (played by actual Michael Bolton) everyone is both sympathetic for the lonesome billionaire and in awe of Michael Bolton. Alan's mother Evelyn, always the subtle one, drops the above line directly to the "When a Man Loves a Woman" singer. Even Bolton looks uncomfortable.
"Peeing with morning wood, that's complicated."
In a rash decision, Walden and Alan head to Zooey's house to confront Walden's dismissive ex to find out why he rejected her. It seems there's another man involved — at some point off-season, Zooey reconnected with another man from her past. "It's complicated," she says. This sends drunken Walden into a rage of genitalia-related metaphors. Per usual.
"You'd be having sex more like a woman would."
Distraught from the complete destruction of his relationship (that we spent nearly half of last season following!), Walden and Alan turn to their Two and a Half Men go to activity: appletini drinking. Drunkenly waxing on his romantic future, Walden bluntly suggests that maybe he should forsake women. Maybe he and Alan should just "go gay." Alan agrees, and the two imagine what the future could hold for their homosexual partership. Steaks on the grill, football (or Project Runway if the game isn't on), hyphenated last names — the perfect life. Then the idea of sex comes up. Alan imagines they'd both get to do it "like guys do," but Walden corrects him with the above line. None of it really makes sense, but hey, the guys are drunk.

Over the next few months, we’ll see new series soar, old series sour, and so much Jersey Shore madness, we’ll want to shower. Let’s face it: The Fall TV season is intimidating. With dozens of new and returning shows hitting our small screens, we know we have some big choices to make. So, to help you determine what to watch, we’re digging deep into the most notable series premiering this season. Where did each show leave off? Where is it headed? And who should you watch it with? Next up is Fox's returning comedy New Girl.
Series: New Girl
Premiere date: Tuesday, September 25 at 8 PM, with an encore episode at 9 PM
Number of seasons on air: This will be its second.
Cast: The human light-up yo-yo Zooey Deschanel leads a cast of newbies: Safety Not Guaranteed's Jake Johnson, Veronica Mars recurring player Max Greenfield, former Space for Living host Hannah Simone... and Lamorne Morris as Winston.
Synopsis: Following a breakup with her unfaithful, dimwitted boyfriend, glimmering beam of all things joyous Jess Day, an impassioned elementary school teacher, moves in with three complete strangers seeking a fourth roommate: spider-in-a-drainpipe Nick Miller, swashbuckling, exfoliation enthusiast Schmidt, and whatever Winston is (technically, she moved in with Nick, Schmidt, and their old roommate Coach, but we're not supposed to bring that up). In short, three well-meaning, listless jerks welcome a beacon of glee into their home: a good deal of self-contained humor and endearing character development are the result. Additionally, love stories are entertained between Jess and Nick and between Schmidt and Jess' lifelong best friend, the affectionately embittered Cece.
Where we left off: Following an ill-conceived plan to reunite and move in with his ex-girlfriend, Nick realizes that he's happier living in physical and emotional squalor with Jess, Schmidt, and Winston, and calls off the relationship once and for all. Additionally, Schmidt and Cece call it quits as well following a fight (and a reference to White Fang) but feelings are bound to linger. Other than that, business as usual. Hijinks, shenanigans, tomfoolery, etc.
You'll like it if: You're a psych major, interested in the social experiment of four marginally insane, highly incompatible young adults sharing a questionably hospitable living quarters, affecting one another's already feeble psychological states of being. Or you're a zoologist, intrigued by the introduction of a new species into a long established but notably self-destructive habitat. Or maybe you just think fast-paced character-based humor is funny.
You won't like it if: You're not a fan of Zooey Deschanel. The series is basically a showcase for the adorkability motif, and she plays it up to 11. It's not for everyone.
Breakout star: The mononymous Schmidt has spawned more quotable one-liners than the rest of the cast combined.
Weak link: Does it even need to be said? When are they going to figure out what to do with Winston?!
Quotes to pick up: The pronunciations of chut-a-ney, calling someone "turtle-faced," and habitual "derps," courtesy of Zooey.
Practices to adopt: Top of the list — True American, the overly complicated, high-stakes, no victims drinking game invented by Jess and her roommates (rules have been devised!). But a close second is the Douchebag Jar, a worthy tool for penalizing your close friends for using phrases like, "Has anybody seen my driving moccasins?"
Reasons to watch this season: Same as last, with a few fun story arcs promised: Schmidt will have to compete with nice guy Nelson Franklin for Cece's heart, and fans will get to meet a formidable thespian pair as Mr. and Mrs. Day.
Educational benefits of watching: You'll learn how to fix a sink with a baseball bat and a faulty wire with a cardboard cone, and you might pick up a few handy hair-care tips from Schmidt. (Please don't use them).
Oh, the places you'll go: New Girl is set in the culturally riveting city of Los Angeles... unfortunately, you wouldn't really know that. Aside from the occasional trip to Nick's bar, the gang barely left their apartment last season. This is fine, because it offers the psychologically claustrophobic feeling that a show like New Girl thrives off.
How it rates among its peers: Not as biting or innovative as Girls, but funnier and more heartwarming than 2 Broke Girls. Definitely the most upbeat of the lot, and ranks high with the laugh-out-loud comedy.
Water cooler standings: Sure, nothing much happens on New Girl. It's like Three's Company with the genders reversed and one extra dude; or Friends minus Monica and Rachel. The show isn't about forwarding plot excitingly, it's about keeping us in love with and entertained by the starring players. And it does. As such, not a show to miss if you want to be up on the Schmidt quotes.

Move over Charlie and Lindsay, there's a new media frenzy darling on-screen odd couple in town. And it's on Sheen's old stomping grounds, no less. Miley Cyrus is guest starring on Two and a Half Men, thus causing the unfathomably popular mainstream entertainment space-time continuum to collapse on itself, and now there's photographic evidence of it.
Miley (and her haircut) will reportedly play a character named Missi (with an 'i', because of course!), a daughter of Ashton Kutcher's friend, who drops in for a visit. Judging from the pictures of the pop star's cameo (which also features one of her sitting in bed with Kutcher, so really take that Charlie and Lindsay!) Kutcher's Walden seems surprised to see her at the door, and Angus T. Jones' Jake just looks plain smitten. Lucky for him, since Missi is being touted as a potential love interest for Jake.
Oh yeah, and there's Miley Cyrus in a bikini with Ashton Kutcher putting suntan lotion on her back while she glances back seductively. Nope, nothing unnerving to see here.
Check out the photos below:
Pretty cool or not so much? You can decide when Miley Cyrus begins her two episode stint on Two and a Half Men on Thursday, October 17 at 8 PM ET on CBS.

Television's biggest day is finally here — all of your favorite stars have braved a brutal Los Angeles heat wave for a shot at Emmy gold. Hollywood.com did too, and we're armed and ready to bring you all of the latest scoop from the winners backstage. Will we be hamming it up with Jon Hamm, or breaking bad with returning champ Bryan Cranston? Will Mad Men take the top drama prize again, or can a newbie like Homeland or Downton Abbey pull an upset? Only the Academy knows for sure, but be sure to check back here for frequent updates — live from the winners backstage! To be continued...
Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series Eric Stonestreet:
On who he is excited to see tonight: "All of the cast of Modern Family. They are my family, and we are each others' family. We know this isn't going to last forever, and will be the old show in a couple of years, or next year even. I was pulling for Jesse or Ed tonight, and I know Julie was pulling for Sofia."
On mood on set after beating co-stars Ed O'Neill and Jesse Tyler Ferguson: "It's going to be pretty violent, for sure. I'm sure Ed is going to do is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu on me, and Jesse is just going to cock his hip or something. No, we love each other, and there is no competition at all between us."
On his pre-Emmy ritual: "The Emmys are on a Sunday, so there's football on. I watched football in the morning and saw my Kansas City Chiefs beat the New Orleans Saints."
Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series Julie Bowen:
On co-star Sofia Vergara's lack of Emmy wins: "She doesn't get the credit she deserves as an actress... there's only a few of us who understand that what she does isn't just play herself. I owe her a lot.... [but] she has a lovely, lovely life. I think rewards come in all different ways. She's getting rewards in other areas in her life, but she deserves one of these as well.
On what she's learned from her on-screen character, Claire: "Claire is a great mom, and she's taught me to be ballsy, and that you don't have to be your kids' best friend. That you don't have to look at every crayon drawing and frame it. Claire has given me that confidence."
On where she'll keep her Emmy: "Out of reach of my son Oliver, who broke the last one."
On the importance of comedy in today's world: "I love that both Ann Romney and Michelle Obama said that Modern Family is their favorite show… laughing is the only thing that matters."
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series Jon Cryer:
On being surprised to win: "I am as shocked as you people. That's all I'm going to say. That's why my speech sucked...Who did I think was going to win? I thought Jim Parsons was going to win again. Big Bang is at the top of its game right now, and he has unfortunately not gotten any worse, so I thought this was going to go to him. I apologize for this speech.
On transitioning to lead actor: "When Charlie [Sheen] and I were doing the show together, the show really rested on Charlie. The show was structured around his character. It felt silly to be in [the lead actor] category… they've restructured [the show] and it's been more of a partnership, and it's been a blast."
On his chemistry with Ashton Kutcher: "With Charlie, [the chemistry] was automatic, you never had to think about it. With Ashton, we're always working on it, and coming up with new stuff. We rehearse a little more. It's a blast."
On Miley Cyrus' hair: "I know her haircut is very controversial, but I love it. I lay on the side of I think she looks fantastic."
Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series Julia Louis-Dreyfus:
On her plans for tonight: "How will I be celebrating? I'm going to have a glass of wine. My husband and I brought our 15-year-old son to the show tonight, so it's very exciting that he's here. He'll go to the Governor's Ball with us, then he'll go home because he has school tomorrow. Then his dad and I are going to live it up a little."
Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program Tom Bergeron:
On the toughest part of hosting live: "I would have to be making things up… the truth of the matter is, [hosting Dancing With The Stars] is the most relaxed part of my day. I love live television. They've created an incredible playground for me… I am never more comfortable than when I'm onstage live on that show."
On the all-star he is most looking forward to seeing again: "If I answer that question, I piss off twelve people. I'm looking forward to all of them equally."
Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series Aaron Paul:
On whether he thinks fans would be upset if Breaking Bad had a happy ending: "Yeah. I think so. I don't think that's what our fans want. It's not going to be a fairytale ending. I hope Jesse survives. I think he deserves to survive. But we'll see."
On his reaction to winning for a second time: "In my speech, I was out of my head. I truly was not expecting this whatsoever, so I didn't prepare anything. I was shaking and trying not to sob."
On what he said to co-star and co-nominee Giancarlo Esposito: "I cried in his arms, and said, 'It doesn't make sense to me that I was on that stage and you were not.' I didn't know what to say to him. What he did with Gustavo Fring is impeccable."
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series Damian Lewis:
On the public's reaction to his character: "I still get jokes going through airport security: 'Have you got a vest on?'"
On his competition, Bryan Cranston: "I've been getting to know Bryan in the circus that is pre-awards merry-go-round, and what just a sweet, lovely, funny man. I love him already. I was quite convinced that he'd be walking up tonight again... I've been catching up on Breaking Bad, mostly out of politeness. I feel like I should see what my competitors are doing."
On the state of America today: "I think there is a particular polarization in your political landscape at the moment... but hey, that's the same in my country, too. I think 9/11 changed the world, and when people have not been at their best, they've behaved badly. And I mean us. I mean the west. We're doing the best we can after an atrocity that changed the world 11 years ago."
Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series Claire Danes:
On President Obama being a fan of the show: "No pressure, you know? It's way cool that he is a fan. I think it speaks to the relevancy of the show. It's hugely validating. I don't have to write the thing, I just have to play it somewhat convincingly… it means so much to us. We're stupefied by the fact that he's tuning in consistently."
On why Homeland is so popular: "It's not preachy. I don't think it's a particularly political show. I think it's a psychological thriller… it doesn't take a very biased position, but it does speak to our feelings about anxiety and unrest right now. We're in a new era where the enemy is not so clear."
Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie Julianne Moore:
On why she chose to star as Sarah Palin in Game Change: "This is an examination of how we pick our leaders. That to me is what was so compelling about this film."
On who she forgot to thank: "I wanted to give a shout out to Tina Fey and Katie Couric. Certainly in my research, when I saw how influential they were [on the 2008 election], it was really quite impressive."
Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Minseries or a Movie Jessica Lange:
On season two of American Horror Story: "It's a more complex story [this year]. Ryan [Murphy] likes to create these things around themes. Last year it was infidelity, this year it's around faith and madness. I think the themes are bigger this year, which allows for all of us to go further. My character goes from A to Z in this one."
On working with Ryan Murphy: "It's very exciting. I never know exactly where he's going with his characters, or with the story. It's always surprising. 99 percent of the time, it's very rewarding. He's got an amazing imagination, and that translates to the writing. It gives me a lot to do. It's a great collaboration."
Outstanding Comedy Series Modern Family:
Steve Levitan, on his speech getting cut off: "I tend to be long-winded, so I think I got what I deserved."
Eric Stonestreet, on living in the moment: "We know that it will eventually not be this way, and you will hate us all."
Sofia Vergara, on her Emmy experience: "Even though Julie keeps winning all of my awards, I am still very happy and I will still keep coming."
Outstanding Drama Series Homeland:
Claire Danes, on ending Mad Men's reign: "Well, we didn't make our show just to undermine them. We're delighted and thrilled, and I think a little startled by this. I don't think anybody was expecting to be recognized this way right off the bat. But it feels pretty nice!"
Mandy Pantinkin, on working with Claire Danes: "It's like a magic trick, watching her. Not just her, the whole company."
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie Kevin Costner:
On his best real-life moment: "I was raised in a very conservative way, and the day I told my parents I was going to act was a really momentous thing, because my father turned around and said, 'What? How are you going to do that? How are you going to make a living?'... I grew up in a very blue collar background, and I'd gone to college, and in his mind I was throwing it all away. I know a lot of younger people rebel a lot earlier in life… I was never that. There was a moment where I knew exactly who I wanted to be… that was a huge moment in my life, when I declared who I was."
On what's next for him: "I have been writing a lot of things. In the last five years I haven't worked very much. I had three babies with my wife. All that time I had been writing, and looking to direct. Writing some television also, because that's the way the stories were working out. My children, I'm not certain that they know I'm an actor. My five year old and my three year old think that I'm in construction, because of the building of the homes that we're doing right now. Hollywood works off perception, so I know what success means to people who deal with perception. I believe in the writing, and writing has propped my career up. My whole career. I'm a writer-oriented actor. When I find good writing, I don't care in what medium it sits. I love the community. I'm a real romantic about Hollywood, but I've always also been a bit outside of it. I play to go into heavy work mode. I'd like to direct more features, there's a television show I've been developing..."

Emmy Idle Threats: Give 'Game of Thrones' Emmy Gold or I'll Give (?) a Crown of Gold
September 23, 2012 5:15am EST
Model and singer Gaston married the blonde actress in a private ceremony in Atlanta, Georgia.
Showing off a series of wedding snaps on Twitter.com of the pair posing in front the wedding car, Ordway tweeted, ""It's official!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!"
Gaston dated the Hannah Montana star in 2009 for nine months. She is now engaged to actor Liam Hemsworth.
September 17, 2012 7:15am EST
The former Hannah Montana star was partying with her fiance Liam Hemsworth at Beacher's Madhouse at the Roosevelt Hotel on 9 September (12) when she got caught up in an altercation with a stranger.
The man later filed a report with police, alleging he was assaulted during the dispute, and cops confirmed they were investigating his claim.
A representative for Cyrus insisted the allegation was "completely false and erroneous", and now editors at TMZ.com report surveillance footage from inside the venue confirm Cyrus is in the clear.
A report on the website suggests police have been handed the film and the probe is ongoing but it is "almost certain" Cyrus will not face any charges.
