Jay Z And Beyonce Top Our List Of The Highest-Earning Celebrity Couples

I turn to see a spitfire of a woman named Rose, dressed in neon green and pink running gear, grinning at me and pointing at the leader of the joggers. Go ahead, go up there, she says. Ill take your picture with him! Food- and TV-related cruise options The object of our attention is a chef, Richard Blais, who wouldnt be drawing such notice except for the fact that he won Season 8 of the Bravo TV show Top Chef, of which this entire ship is something of a spinoff. Yes, this is Top Chef: The Cruise. I decline Roses offer, but shes not having it. No! Go! Thats what youre here for! I demur again. She insists again. Look, no one back home will believe you if you dont have a picture! Fearing that her pushing might get physical, I tell her that Im on this cruise as a journalist, that Ive met Blais a few times and that Im more interested in hearing why shes here than in acting on any fanboy tendencies of my own. Finally, she relents. But Roses vehemence makes it clear how intensely she feels about Blais and the show. And its reactions like hers that explain why Top Chef: The Cruise drew a sold-out crowd for its voyage from Miami to Cozumel and back in the spring. Rose and her fellow fans jumped at the chance to get up close and personal with some of their favorite reality-show stars or at least as up close and personal as you can get when 2,000 people are trying to do the same thing.

Priyanka Chopra is India’s most dangerous celebrity: McAfee

What we did is we leased a celebrity sex tape with Farrah Abraham and we took a five minute clip and put it onto one of the three sites.And as a result of that, they had 12 million views of that five-minute clip within the first 10 days.We surrounded that clip with links back to Vivid.com, and then those people came to Vivid.com to watch the movie, which equated to $500,000 in sales. But Hirsch would not go so far as to say Vivid relies on celebrity sex tape income to stay afloat. The one thing about celebrity sex tapes is they dont fall into any sort of schedule. Sometimes its two or three in a row and then not any for a year.So it depends if were able to find some or not, he said. This year weve been lucky with Farrah and Sydney.Ultimately they are not a huge part of our business, but its what helps to drive our brand, and gets the name out there, and drives traffic to all of the Vivid properties. He does, however, acknowledge pursuing young women in the news.Absolutely.Yes, yes, yes.Were very proactive, Hirsch said. If we see something in the news we try to contact them or make them some sort of public offer. Our sources say this pursuit is a huge change in how the industry works. Where companies like Vivid once waited for a homemade sex tape to be leaked to them a la Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lees tape in1995 nowadays, the company prefersto make them happen themselves. Sydney Leathers, New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiners former sexting partner, was lured by the money and fame that a celebrity sex tape brings.In an early interview with FOX411, she said she had rejected an offer to make a sex tape with Vivid. But less than a week later, the 23-year-old did indeed shoot a porno with a porn pro for Vivid, for a large, undisclosed sum of money. According to Leathers, her change of heart happened because: Everyone already thought I did it, so why not? Jasmine Waltz is a model and actress whohas appeared in the films “Demon” and “Poker Run.” Waltz made a private sex tape with her ex-boyfriend, and told a tale of how Vivid not only wanted her to sign off on her personal tape, but make another one under the companys direction. It was something that was made already (with her ex-boyfriend). I definitely sort of had forgotten that it had been made.After some things have happened in my life, I was approached by Vivid where they wanted to do a deal where they pick a porn star, or whoever I pick, and they would film the whole thing, she said. I turned that down, and then it must have been like seven or eight months later that Exquisite Films had gotten an email from whoever had gotten the tape (with the ex boyfriend).(They said) we cant do this without your consent, well pay you X-amount of dollars, and theyll edit it.I didnt think there was [anything] too raunchy about it.I didnt want a porn company filming something under their control. Waltz also explained that her tape did not make a big splash because she signed with Exquisite instead of Vivid.Because Vivid and TMZ have such a strong bond together, it was thrown under the rug.I just know the two owners are very tight. Waltz said.

Venkatasubrahmanyam Krishnapur, VP of Engineering- Consumer and Mobile, Business Group, McAfee India Centre, said: “In India, where celebrities are given the status of demi gods, cybercriminals often use their names to lure people to sites that actually host malicious software designed to compromise personal details and disrupt devices.

The 10 Most Cringe-Worthy Celebrity Award Show Wipeouts


Jay Zs recent Watch the Throne album went platinum and launched a world tour that brought in $1.4 million per night in America. Knowles, who took a short break when her daughter Blue Ivy was born in January last year, was back with a vengeance this year with her Mrs. Carter world tour, which grossed an average $2 million per night. Then there are their other interests. Jay Z is a part owner of the new Barclays Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where the Brooklyn Nets play. He sold his stake in the team and now has to dump his share in the arena, too, because hes started his own sports agency: Roc Nation Sports, which represents star athletes like Kevin Durant and Victor Cruz. Knowles has a fragrance collection and a clothing line called House of Deron. Blue Ivy could soon join the family business. Shes already been on one of her Dads songs and her parents have petitioned to trademark her name for the right to use it on anything from baby clothes to toys. Bey and Jay earned $15 million more than the No. 2 couple on our list: Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen . Like Jay Z and Knowles, Brady and Bundchen have used their fame to build bigger businesses around themselves. We estimate the couple earned a combined $80 million between June 2012 and June 2013. The highest-paid model in the world, Bundchen out-earned her football star husband by $4 million. In addition to her modelling money, Bundchen earns big off of her line of flip-flops from Brazilian footwear company Grendene.


Mark Wahlberg & Jimmy Butler When you hear that Mark Wahlberg is in a bromance with an athlete, you figure it has to be someone from Boston. Wahlberg, after all, is a proud Beantown product, on par with the Matt Damons and Ben Afflecks of the world. But instead, Wahlberg and Jimmy Butler of the Chicago Bulls are BFFs. How did this happen? Wahlberg was in Chicago shooting Transformers 4 when he encountered Butler at the Bulls’ practice facility. The two, naturally, engaged in a friendly game of one-on-one, which Butler chronicled on Twitter . A bromance was bornone so strong that it made Wahlberg question his own fandom . Ladies’ Division: Serena Williams & Kim Kardashian Source: Instagram Yes, I knowI was shocked, too, that Kim Kardashian has friends. Especially friends who command as much respect as Serena Williams. Hollywood’s most embarrassing resident and the biggest female star in the tennis world had a girls’ night out in January. Despite the fact that Serena probably should have been embarrassed, she instead provided evidence of her friendship with Kardashian by posting pictures on Instagram . Apparently, though, this friendship is serving Williams well: She kicked off her year with dinner with Kim, and ever since, she’s been virtually unstoppable on the court. Maybe this friendship really isn’t so bad. Ladies’ Division: Serena Williams & Kelly Rowland Source: ConcreteLoop.com …Or maybe Serena Williams just enjoys having famous friends.
