Hangover Weatherman

Getting wild and crazy can boost the career of an actor or comedian like Bradley Cooper or Zach Galifianakis, but apparently not a weatherman like John Bolaris.

The Philadelphia weatherman for a Fox affiliate has been fired after Playboy published a first-hand account he gave describing a wild weekend in Miami where he was drugged by the Russian mob.

We hope this isn't a sign that Nelly's "ex-manager" was telling the truth!

American Express is currently suing rapper Nelly for never paying a $20,403.64 credit card bill! Ouchie!

Apparently, AMEX filed the lawsuit against the rapper in Missouri back in October…but they're STILL saying that he hasn't paid up!

Nelly is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 9. Let's hope he's able to work everything out at that time!

home improvement star sues big wangs partners

Poor Zachery Ty Bryan can't get a break!

In order to score some extra income, the former Home Improvement star took a crack at the business world by investing in Hollywood sports bar Big Wangs - and he feels he got totally screwed!

Bryan is suing Big Wangs partners Peter Brill and Joe Barker because he claims they used profits from the restaurant to open other competing restaurants, AND to purchase cars, vacations, and a house in the Hollywood Hills.

Bryan also says that the two partners used an American Express card for all the purchases, and used an earned 750,000 Membership Rewards points for themselves.

Sounds shady. Good luck, Brad Taylor Zach!

Credit Cards Are Out, Smartphones Are In!

Filed under: Etc.

Discover and Barclays Bank are teaming up with AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile in a "super-secret alliance," which will give their customers access to a new technology that will allow them to buy stuff off of their iPhone, BlackBerry, and other smartphones.

Consumers will be able to "wave and pay," without needing to swipe their credit card.

With Discover currently the fourth biggest credit card company, behind Visa, MasterCard, and American Express, the company is hoping to take "dead aim" at their competitors by offering the new technology.

In fact, shares for Visa and MasterCard have already dropped since the news was leaked.

According to insiders, "this is a game changer."

Watch the clip (above) and see how this new "contactless" swipe works. Pretty neat!
