The company is going to be coughing up $25 million to hand over to him in the next two weeks, as that’s what they owe him for his work. But check this out. Considering Charlie did just under 200 episodes for the show, the syndication profits to be given to him over the nest 7-10 years add up to $100 MILLION. Which means we’re going to hear him laughing all the way to the bank for the next decade.
Back on the road these days with his recently reunited band Bush, dad-of-two Gavin Rossdale knows first hand how hard it is to juggle career and kids. So how do he and his wife Gwen Stefani make time for their work, their boys Kingston, 5, and Zuma, 3, and each other? “We muddle our way through it,” he tells US magazine in a new interview. Here are a few of the highlights:
On balancing work and family: “I just accept that those are the sacrifices you make and it’s inevitable that anyone who has kids makes sacrifices… And my kids get the benefit of me working at home at the studio… Nothing’s perfect and everything has its price. But I think that I will want to instill the value in them of applying yourself and the value of sacrifice, and what it takes.”
On who the boys take after: “You want them to take after you when they do things well. When they do anything bad you wanna blame the other genes, but really they’re so phenomenally their own people. That’s almost the most incredible part of it, that you can see elements of both of us in both of them… I’m happy to say they’re got really good, funny characters and they’re polite.”
On how he and Gwen juggle their busy schedules: “We muddle our way through it. It’s just about the communication and also just the space. The one thing that’s always been so good for us is to understand each other’s timetables and commitments and responsibilities. She’s in a huge, high-powered, creative set-up with her band and she’s making a great record, and I can confirm it’s great. But that takes time and effort, and no one wants to leave their kids for work.. Too much in this world is, people assume that things come naturally, when I think it’s an essential life lesson to learn that it takes trying, try again, try again, it takes reworking it, it takes a lot of effort, it’s not just a life of dilettante.”
Birthday girl Heidi Montag‘s drastic transformation may be nine months old, but on the 25th anniversary of her birth we could think of no more appropriate way to celebrate the constantly evolving starlet’s special day than to reminisce over her appearance old and new.
From the Colorado native’s fresh-faced days on The Hills to obtaining some big ol’ hills of her own, Heidi’s transformation to life-sized doll is nearly complete. Montag claims to regret some of the work she’s had done, but we have a feeling this spotlight addict’s makeover is hardly finito. Here are 25 photos dating back to 2006 documenting Heidi’s journey from Plain Jane to Playboy covergirl. [Photos: Getty Images]
It would appear that Scarlett Johansson is one of the sexiest phone hacking victims we’ve seen in a while. Pictures that the star apparently took of herself in the buff are making the rounds on the web this morning. It could very well be the work of the notorious hacking ring who claim to have jacked “delicate” pix of over fifty different Hollywood actresses back in March. In addition to Scar-Jo, the motley crew of nudie thieves say that have shots of Miley Cyrus, Ali Larter, and Vanessa Hudgens (deja vu!). Although they look pretty real, we’re not totally sold on these naughty pix being authentic. What do you think?
