    Prince Harry reminds me of the song by Miley. He just "Can't be Tamed." lol In the south he would be described as buck wild. I will say that I thought he might have bit more of a build than those photos reveal.

    Lisa Vanderpump was shown the photos and remarked, "That's not a royal penis." lol I don't know if any of the released photos actually show the full monty, but I have only seen the redacted ones.

    They pay for pics, same as if professional paparazzi took 'em. Helluva easy way to make money if you hang out with the right crowd, though I imagine you wouldn't be welcome for long if you were known to be the one leaking video.

    I realize TMZ pays for the pics, but I'm curious as to how TMZ makes money on it. Do they sell the photos to others? They have paid ads on their website, but it's difficult to believe that they could make enough money to pay all their overhead, TMZ staff, etc. on those little ads.

    Any Bachelorette fans here? The threads are closed now since the season ended, but it's reported that Emily was cheating on her pick, Jef and he threw her and her daughter out of the house in the middle of the night. They denied it, but now Jef's brother is confirming the story. I have a link, but I can't post it here.

    They have a daily half-hour television show - that must make them some money.

    It it's true, I'm not at all surprised. She's a vapid, useless famewhore, all of which is true even if the cheating allegation isn't.

    TMZ gets its money like all websites...advertising.

    The Emily story makes me shamefully happy. I do not like her, here or there I do not like her anywhere.

    TMZ's show is syndicated which, as I understand, means that networks pay it for the right to air the show. Plus the web advertising as others mentioned. They probably also charge other companies for the rights to show the pictures they purchase. Chelsea on Chelsea Lately last night was saying that her show couldn't show the Harry pictures because TMZ
    wouldn't let the E network air them (she said TMZ didn't like E).

    Bachelorette was the main story in the new US magazine that came out today. I don't watch the show and so I didn't read the article but I believe it was about the story you are referring to above.
