Sandra Bullock is Hollywood's top-earning actress

She may not have hit the jackpot in her love life, but Sandra Bullock’s finances this past year have been pretty golden.

According to Forbes ranking of Hollywood’s highest-paid actresses, Bullock is number one, having hauled in $56 million between June 2009 and June 2010.

Despite reducing her fee to play the lead in the film “The Blind Side,” her share of the profits paid off handsomely as the movie earned $310 million at the box office – a healthy return on an estimated budget of about $30 million.

'Simpsons' will see stars next season

The show may be entering into its 22nd season, but the “Simpsons” of Springfield are still getting major visitors.

“Simpsons” executive producer Al Jean already talked about “Mad Men’s” Jon Hamm signing on as a guest voice on the primetime cartoon, but that’s just the beginning.

Fox announced at the Television Critics Association Press Tour that celebs like Halle Berry, Kristen Wigg, Martha Stewart, Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Rudd are among those lending their voices to future episodes. You can expect to hear from “Glee” stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Amber Riley as well.

Ricky Gervais will also return to the series, in an episode featuring Homer and Bart heading out to Los Angeles for the Academy Awards. Although the witty Brit co-wrote – as well as made a guest appearance – on an episode of “The Simpsons” back in 2006, he’ll simply star in the upcoming episode as himself.

'Glee' creator 'gobsmacked' by McCartney mixtape

With the heaps of accolades critics and fans mound upon Fox’s “Glee,” it’s no wonder that even the icons are angling for cameos.

At the TCA press tour Monday, “Glee” co-creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy admitted that the show’s star status has led to him getting mail from the likes of music greats like Paul McCartney.

“I got a mixtape from Paul McCartney a couple weeks ago,” Murphy said. “It was amazing. I thought I was being punked."

Who did Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky choose?

Last night's season finale of "The Bachelorette" saw a twist that really wasn't, a much-hyped interview that didn't happen and, most importantly, Ali Fedotowsky making a life-altering decision.

Rather than have both landscaper Chris Lambton and insurance agent Roberto Martinez go through the whole process of choosing a ring, putting on itchy suits and using shoehorns for the first time in their lives, Ali opted to give one suitor the boot the day before the proposal. That suitor was Chris, who found out about Ali's decision as he prepared to escort her on their final date.

Chris was disappointed with Ali's decision, but appreciated the fact that she didn't want to put him through the whole proposal ceremony. Chris later told Chris Harrison on the "After the Final Rose" special that he would go through the journey again to find the girl of his dreams. Do we have the next "Bachelor" on deck here?
