Knowing the success of his "Madea" franchise alone, it's not too surprising that Tyler Perry tops Forbes’ “Entertainment’s Highest-Paid Men” list this year. According to Forbes, Perry pulled in $130 million in 12 months, beginning in May 2010.
TV shows “Meet the Browns” and “House of Payne” are huge moneymakers, as are Perry’s wildly popular movies. The actor/producer/director/screenwriter will star in the upcoming film adaptation of James Patterson’s Alex Cross detective novels.
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer earned his spot at No. 2 with some help from the fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie, which raked in $1 billion globally. This pushed Bruckheimer’s yearly haul to $113 million.

Before she hit the headlines as Tiger Woods’ alleged main mistress, Rachel Uchitel was seen in the news because of a 9/11 photo. The snapshot depicted her grieving over her fiancé, investment banker James Andrew O’Grady, who died in the terrorist attacks.
With the 10th anniversary of the tragedy looming, Page Six Magazine interviewed Uchitel, and the resulting story produced some alleged stunning statements.
The former “Celebrity Rehab” star is claiming her quotes were taken out of context, reports TMZ, and she says she’s considering suing the magazine.

Director/actor Kevin Smith tells CNN he’s eternally grateful to golf star Tiger Woods for deflecting media attention away from him when he was “too fat to fly.”
Last year, the “Red State” director was kicked off a Southwest Air flight because he wasn’t able to comfortably fit in his seat. Smith had originally purchased two tickets for the Oakland-to-Burbank trip, but when he was bumped to an earlier flight, only one seat was available. After being seated, he was asked to leave.
In a statement, Southwest explained that Smith’s removal was for the "safety and comfort of all customers."

The Internet is undeniably making the world smaller.
And while this is a great thing for friends trying to stay in touch years after moving away from each other, there’s a certain sect of people who must suffer while the rest of us thrive.
I’m talking, of course, about American celebrities who years ago starred in bizarre, unintentionally hilarious commercials in Japan (why Japan is the main purveyor of this advertising insanity, I have no idea), only to have the Internet unearth them for the whole planet to see.

After keeping a relatively low public profile, golf pro Tiger Woods is getting back into the game with his first talk show appearance since his marriage fell apart amidst claims he had multiple mistresses.
On March 16, Woods will be a guest on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," and the two will even play a round of miniature golf, according to the Hollywood Reporter. "We're going to do it," Fallon confirmed at the PaleyFest festival on Friday.
The men previously hit the links together when they played a round of Wii's "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10" in 2009 and Fallon beat Woods at his own game.
