Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian isn't number one on Forbes' recent list of the highest paid actresses on television, but she's pretty darn close.

The E! reality star made a whopping $18 million over the last 12 months. She earned that big chunk of change from filming her series "Keeping Up With The Karashians" as well as from her perfume and the clothing line she shares with her sisters.

And the Kardashians seem to be taking over the world. Her younger sis Khloe came in at the number five spot on Forbes' list with $11 million in total earnings.

For reality stars who have no discernable talent, they make...

Childish Gambino, AKA Donald Glover, released a new mix tape entitled Royalty. But he isn't the only NBC comedy star rapping on the album - Tina Fey cameos on a track titled Real Estate!

The last track is mostly about investing in real estate once Glover gets "that white people money." Another amusing line: "I got houses in the mountains, man Will Smith live down the street."

However, the "best" was saved for last, when unlikely rapper Tina Fey takes the mic. "Yeah we in here, we in this thing / Gambino is forever, royalty is forever / We ballin' so we f--kin' up the hardwood, homie / Thi...

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...
