I think Julia $$$$ is mostly inherited.
Shocked to Ryan Seacrest worth so much. Incredible.
Little Keanu is big time too. A silly actor and big $$$$. Only in America.
If they haven't stolen it, don't bother me OP!
Dolly earned her $$... all 450 million of them.
I don't see how they could possibly get these numbers. More surprising, assuming these numbers were accurate, is the number of successful people not on the list.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus' father was a billionaire. Grandfathers were multi-millionaires, in the days when that was rare. Major generational family wealth.
Plus she made her own multi millions from Seinfeld and other successful television syndication deals. (She doesn't share in Seinfeld syndication money, but does share in DVD and other media sales.) The show has made multiple billions since going off the air.
I thought that awful, xenophobic J.K. Rowling woman was worth much, MUCH more. But only $1 billion? REALLY?
At some point, hadn't she amassed more money than the queen of England and/or was listed as the world's wealthiest, or one of the world's wealthiest women? If so, what happened?
Still, a billion dollars. Man, must be so nice.
Keanu Reeves made my jaw drop. Pretty good for a guy who can't act. Has he made a movie in a decade?
I once read that he doesn't have a home- just lives in posh hotels.
The HP list is of wealthy celebrities, but it's not *the* 24 richest celebrities, it's 24 *of the* richest celebrities.
For example, Seinfeld is worth $800M, just like Larry David, according to the source site (celebritynetworth.com), but he's not listed here where JL-D and LD are.
I was hoping Jerry's net worth was gobbled up by Jessica's appetite for expensive shit, but he's still got some money to spend.
For as dumb as Keanu is, he was extremely smart when it came to the Matrix films. When he accepted the role, no one knew if it was going to be a hit or not. Instead of taking a salary, he took a cut of the Gross profits.
Surely this is the biggest dig yet at our fabulous Janbot!!! Why is not Janet Jackson at the top of this list? She's made billions from the record she had out 30 years ago that was popular and she eats like a bird, so she hardly spends any of her money!
Seinfeld needs every dime he can get his hands on. Have you seen his "house" in the Hamptons? It's bigger than a hotel. Or a castle. Just Google it. It probably costs about $10 million a year to maintain. It's like a Buckingham Palace type arrangement where there must be apartments and servants' quarters. I bet you could live there and he'd never know it.
[quote]I thought that awful, xenophobic J.K. Rowling woman was worth much, MUCH more.
Well this is news to me. How is she xenophobic?
Ummm...that site is a joke.
I didn't know J L-D was an heiress. But now that I think about it, it does sound like a super entitled name. She somehow managed to still be a very likable person.
I thought those Olsen twins were supposed to be billionaires.
Celebrity Net worth is bullshit. They exaggerate a lot of celebrities, and underestimate others.
The Olsens are worth over a billion. Yes. They've had licensing arrangements since they were 3 yrs old. Mary Kate & Ashley had their faces plastered on lunchboxes 25yrs ago. Their fashion lines are booming and have been for years.
Jessica Simpson is worth $700 million for her fashion line, too. We know Beyoncé & Jay Z are billionaires. Gwyneth & Chris are worth hundreds of millions too. Kanye is loaded. At least until his baby momma crucifies him for at least half of what he's got. That's what she wants.
[quote]Kanye is loaded. At least until his baby momma crucifies him for at least half of what he's got. That's what she wants.
Are you joking? As if the contract she signed with him isn't very specific about the amount she'll get and for how long? Come on now.
Seinfeld's great grandkids will live off his syndication deal.
It seems like a strange set-up that Julia L-D, Jason Alexander, and the other one don't get Seinfeld syndication money.
@20, I thought the same thing. I guess since Jerry and David were the creators, that's how it worked out. They were not even going to get a cut of the dvd sales. That's crazy.
Kim Kardardashian didn't sign any agreements with Kanye. Their thinking was "when" they get married they'd do all that legal stuff so Kim would be "protected." But Kim pulled a fast one with this unplanned pregnancy.
She's been all mopey and mostly hanging around LA for a reason. She has no intention of living in France or leaving the Kardashian TV show or their clothing lines, & other business interests.
We'll hear a lot of moaning from her about how close she is to her family, and how Kanye was too demanding, but she is going to find a reason to dump him, and take his money as soon as that kid is born. That baby is her ticket. She is a greedy bitch.
You're kidding, right? You don't realize that their entire relationship is a contract? Seriously?
[quote]At some point, hadn't she amassed more money than the queen of England and/or was listed as the world's wealthiest, or one of the world's wealthiest women? If so, what happened?
I read that her wealth fell below one billion $ because of all the millions that she gives to charity. Hey, but keep hating...
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
