Law law land: celebrities spend big bucks to fight off frivolous lawsuits

Being a celebrity is hard work. After a long day of playing make believe and/or sportsball with your millionaire buddies, you just want to go home and relax in your floating mansion castle.

Who’s a worse driver: a celebrity on a motorcycle, or a half-blind cat with narcolepsy? The answer might surprise you

Celebrity gossip is like a drug addiction.
