    I also recall that a few weeks ago, an article came out saying that Tea actually fell asleep during a romp in a sauna.
    According to what I heard 1: He was addicted to online porn 2. Tea passed out in the hot tub or sauna.

    This mad me laugh because I can't stand Nicole Kidman.

    Entertainment - Nicole Kidman tops Hollywood overpaid list

    Nicole Kidman tops Hollywood overpaid list

    CANBERRA — Nicole Kidman was named the most overpaid celebrity in Hollywood in the second annual list of least bankable stars by U.S. magazine Forbes, taking the top slot from fellow Australian Russell Crowe.

    Kidman's films were estimated to only earn $1 for every dollar the Oscar-winning actress was paid compared with $8 a year ago.

    "The Invasion," a remake of the 1956 classic "Invasion of the Body Snatchers," even lost $2.68 for every dollar earned by Kidman who was reportedly paid $17 million for her role.

    "Despite winning an Oscar for her performance in 2002's "The Hours," Kidman has become the most overpaid celebrity in Hollywood," said Forbes, adding that her upcoming movie "Australia" could give her a boost.

    Second in the list came Jennifer Garner, whose movies including "The Kingdom" and "Catch and Release" have underperformed at the box office. Her movies were calculated to earn $3.60 for every $1 she was paid.

    Kidman's ex-husband, Tom Cruise, came third in the list with a $4 return for every dollar he was paid, mostly because of the failure of last year's movie "Lions for Lambs." For every dollar the star earned the film returned only $1.88.

    Forbes said the ranking was compiled by looking at a star's past three movies and dividing their total earnings by the films' gross income to get the actor's payback figure.

    Making up the top 10 of overpaid Hollywood celebrities were Cameron Diaz, Jim Carrey, Nicolas Cage, Drew Barrymore, Will Ferrell and Cate Blanchett.

    The actor whose bankability improved most over the past year was Crowe, who was ranked the most overpaid celebrity last year when Kidman was in second place.

    Last year, Forbes estimated the movie "Cinderella Man" earned $5 for every dollar that Crowe was paid.

    But this year, he was the 18th best earner on a previously issued list of which actors were worth their paychecks, with a return of $6.88 for every dollar he earned.

    This bump was attributed to last year's movie "American Gangster" with Denzel Washington, for which Crowe returned a healthy $10.80 for every dollar he was paid.

    I don't mind Nicole Kidman or even Jennifer Gardner but I don't think they are worth so much money at the box office. Tom Cruise isn't worth any amount of money.

    Diappointing news if you were looking forward to seeing Heather Mills on the next Celebrity Apprentice
    Mills fired from ‘Apprentice’ before it starts - Access Hollywood - MSNBC.com

    Access Hollywood
    updated 3:53 p.m. ET, Wed., Sept. 10, 2008
    It appears Heather Mills has been fired before she ever set foot in Donald Trumps boardroom.

    Plans for the former model-turned-activist to join the cast of NBCs Celebrity Apprentice went awry according to Britains The Sun after the ex-Mrs. Paul McCartney reportedly insisted she be guaranteed a place in the finals of the reality show.

    The network was originally very keen on getting her involved, an NBC source reportedly told the newspaper. They thought it would be a clever move, attracting lots of publicity for the show But her demands were ludicrous and it soon became clear that getting her involved would be a headache.
