Judge Judy
Reality TV star Judge Judy has filed her very first lawsuit against an attorney in Connecticut who used her image to promote his personal injury firm.

The TV judge, real name Judith Sheindlin, filed suit in federal court against Hartford attorney John Haymond on Wednesday (12Mar14), alleging he used her name and likeness in unauthorised advertisements and commercials, suggesting she had endorsed him and his firm.

Simon Cowell
Forbes magazine just released its list of the highest paid TV personalities, and Howard Stern and Simon Cowell tied for the top spot.

"The X Factor" judge and radio host each made $95 million between June, 2012, and June, 2013. Ironically (or maybe not really), Stern is a judge on Cowell's popular series "America's Got Talent." They are definitely sharing the wealth.

Cowell has been making headlines recently for having a fling with a married woman, who wound up getting pregnant. Oh, and she happens to be the estranged wife of his friend Andrew Silverman. Oops!

Judge Judy Sheindlin is headed for the other side of the bench soon -- she's been hit with a half-a-million dollar lawsuit from the estranged wife of her courtroom TV show's producer.

Patric Jones is suing Sheindlin for $514,421 -- and 14 cents -- the value of a set of Christofle china and flatware that her husband, Randy Douthit, sold Sheindlin for just $50,000 without her consent. Jones has demanded that the judge either return the items or pay what they're worth.

Douthit and Jones are in the midst of a nasty divorce battle, and Jones claims her soon-to-be ex sold their shared property ...

$16 Million Contract Puts Britney Spears On TV's Top Paid List - Behind Judge Judy

Britney Spears
Britney Spears is reportedly set to rake in $16 million as a judge on The X Factor, but the incredible amount isn't nearly enough to put her on top of TV's best paid list.

Assuming The X Factor has the same amount of episodes this season (26), Spears would pocket a bit over $615,000 an episode. That makes her the second highest paid per episode in primetime currently - Ashton Kutcher makes $700,000 an episode for Two and a Half Men. She is also far behind predecessor Charlie Sheen's whopping $1.2 million an episode. It would put her ahead of William Petersen's previous salary on CSI ($600,...
