Anyone who has been to a taping of the game show in Hollywood knows, the pressure is on after being announced as a contestant, but even so this product has an elusive price that has some people guessing far beyond what it could cost.
How did they think an iPhone costs? One contestant said $7,500. Which, in her defense, might be accurate if she didn't have the correct data plan and she ran over on data.The interesting thing about this situation is most people don't know what an iPhone costs because it is so far out of their budget that they don't even try to purchase a phone for personal use. iPhones cater to a certain crowd and it appears those folks aren't really part of the show.
An even bigger shocker is how much an iPhone with data, text and unlimited calling costs. According to Time Magazine, it is $1,969 a year. WOW! http://time.com/3652003/price-is-right-iphone-6-cost/
Oddly, this might be a new low for Ted Nugent and all his ranting lately. He has said some pretty insensitive things about the President as well, however the Commander-in-Chief let it roll off his back (critics obviously come with the job.) Yet Nugent's views get his concert in Idaho cancelled. The Native American tribe obviously has zero tolerance for his ranting and he isn't welcome.
The moral of this story? Ted Nugent hilariously has been put in his place by the least likely entity. Everyone was wishing President Obama would say something after Nugent's remarks before, but instead folks in Idaho offered up the courage to tell Ted to keep his tour bus rolling as his attitude isn't welcome in their town.
Funniest moment? OMG! The North Korean dictator riding the pig. Or maybe the trash can over the head and then shoved into the pool. Or the kung fu moment when a butt kicking is given? The whole thing as it is funny.
Kim Jong-un has asked China to take down the video as it "compromises Kim's dignity and authority." Which is impossible as he really has no dignity to start with. Everyone is aware of his stand on the lack of human rights so listening to him complain about how it makes him uncomfortable to be in this video is falling on deaf ears.
Take a look at this video. #viralvideo #northkorea #humanrights

While some are complimenting the music, the most interesting element to this new single is how Kanye West has once again stretched the public's desire to hear music. His decision to add Paul McCartney has music lovers debating what artists, who wouldn't typically play together, should do collaborations. It's an idea long overdue as music should see no boundaries, but lately some of the artists have been extremely compartmentalized! Def Jam records has announced the single is available on iTunes now: http://smarturl.it/only1
According to http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2014/12/31/was-heart-tugging-viral-video-of-generous-homeless-man-all-a-hoax/ CBS, the YouTube star, Josh Paler Lin has made out big too. It is "estimated that Lin made $52,000." That is so far -- more money in his pocket every time the video is seen too. Nothing wrong with making a buck with videos, but off a homeless prank - NOT COOL.
Selfless people offered food, shelter and kindness to the homeless all over Los Angeles and Orange County this holiday and not ONE of those people had their cameras rolling to make thousands of dollars in views. Offering a helping hand should ALWAYS be an act of kindness.
This type of behavior isn't acceptable anywhere else, but for some reason it's totally cool to point and carry on if a star has had an issue in the past. It's bogus and Cameron definitely shut it down.
Anyone looking to reflect on a real friendship should check out how Cameron Diaz responded to the jab against Drew Barrymore. Her decision to bail on the interview is applauded and it is too bad that she didn't just hang up on the Kyle & Jackie O show completely. This whole line of questioning (and slamming) by the DJ's should have never been part of the interview in the first place.

I live in the heart of Los Angeles close enough to see the skyscrapers and Hollywood sign when I open my door yet near the beach a quick drive to Disneyland.
As a published author and celebrity columnist I work in Los Angeles on various projects. My favorite has to be my celebrity column. It is delightful to share positive entertainment news with others.
If I am not at the computer, check the beach, Disneyland or maybe I am out having dinner as living in LA has provided me with amazing opportunities.
