Chezza To Become Highest Paid Woman On UK TV If She Says Yes To X Factor Again

cheryl-cole-to-become-highest-paid-woman-uk-tv.jpg

She's worth every cent!

Cheryl Cole has been offered double her salary if she agrees to return to UK's X Factor.

With speculation that Simon Cowell will focus his energy on the US version and will most likely not return to the UK series, producers are hoping to lure Chezza into staying on their show.

If she does agree to come back, the pay raise would make her the highest paid woman on UK television.

A source says:

"Cheryl is being tempted with a bigger salary and if she takes it then it won't look like she's failed in the US. ITV are in turmoil about the UK version as everything is still up in the air.

They know by keeping Cheryl half of their problems will be solved. She's still the biggest advertising draw. But, of course, if she does get the US job she'll take it like a shot."

Although with names like Fergie and Nicki Minaj being thrown around to judge the US version, it's still very much in the air whether or not Cheryl will be asked to be a member of the judging panel.

We say, give her a chance! We want Chezza's American debut to happen ASAP!

Media Moguls' Salaries Going Up Once Again…

Filed under: Media MinuteDisneyBusiness Blitz

media moguls recent stats

Curious to hear which media moguls made mad money in the past couple of years?

Here are some recent yearly total compensation stats from the highest paid moguls in the entertainment industry:

-Disney's Bob Iger earned $28 million total in 2010

-Viacom's Philippe Dauman earned $84.5 million total in 2010

-CBS' Les Moonves earned $43.2 million in 2009

-News Corp's Rupert Murdoch earned $22.7 million in 2010

Certainly, there are some moguls who have taken paycuts for the sake of their companies, but the big guys here seem to be doing quite well for themselves…especially Philippe!

$84.5 million?!?!?!? It's good to be the President/CEO of Viacom!

What do U think of these salaries? Do U think these media moguls are getting paid what they deserve?

Puppeteer Tops Highest Paid Comedians List

jeffdunhamwenn.jpg

Really?? REALLY???

Making $22.5 million last year, puppeteer Jeff Dunham is the number one top-earning comedian for 2009-2010, according to Forbes.

Even though his Comedy Central series tanked last year, Dunham makes a majority of his money from touring, DVD and puppet sales.

Puppet sales?? Do people really purchase replicas of his puppets??

What makes this list even worse is that Dane Cook comes in number two with an estimated $21 million for his Isolated Incident Global Thermo Comedy Tour.

America's Got Talent season two winner, puppeteer Terry Fator, otherwise known as the "human jukebox," is the third highest paid comedian, earning $20 million a year during his five-year residency at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas.

Chelsea Handler and George Lopez round out the top five.

So where are funny men Jerry Seinfeld and Conan O'Brien??

According a source, top-earning comedians have to count stand-up as their primary income. Unlike the others on the list, Seinfeld and O'Brien make a majority of their money from TV.

Live Nation Comedy President Geof Wills says, "To stay on top in this economy, you've got to work a lot harder. The ones who get hurt are the comedians who don't realize that they have to adapt the environment they're currently in."

Sooo, with two puppeteers in the top 3, we're guessing that America really loves puppets??

Hmm, inneresting.

Who's Making The Biggest Bucks On T.V.???

12ap100507138376.jpg

You know, we're in a recession. Folks just got to cut back.

Unless you're Charlie Sheen, in which case you can wipe your ass with money and still be able to pay the cable bill.

A list of the highest earning players on T.V. was released today and as you can imagine, most of these people make more in an hour of television than some people do in a year!

For instance, did you know that Mr. Sheen makes $1.25 million per episode of Two and A Half Men? Doesn't that make you just want to cut him on Christmas morning?

Did you know that Kate Gosselin makes $250,000 per episode of Kate Plus Eight. You can argue that sextuplets can't feed themselves, but in this case, we think your wrong. If she is making that kind of bank, imagine what the kids are getting?

Did you know that if you add together what Ellen DeGeneres, Jay Leno, David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel and Judge Judy make in a year that still isn't half of what Oprah Winfrey takes home?

How much exactly does she make? Brace yourself - $315 million a year!

That is INSANITY!

There are tons more actors who make tons more money, but we think we'll spare you the rest. You probably feel poor enough!

Even More Jordan In All Of Our Lives!

wenn5499549jb.jpg

We hope no one's sick of Miz Jordan Katie Price, because gurlfriend ain't going away for a very long time!

The reality famewhore has signed a multi-million dollar, two year deal with LivingTV, which will showcase her in a variety of shows once her contract with ITV2 expires, and will officially make her one of the UK's highest paid television personalities!

Pricey Media managing directors Mark Wagman and Jane Robinson say:

"Viewers continue to be fascinated by Katie Price, and we are delighted that this new deal offers the perfect springboard to evolve her television career as well as grow and develop our media business in partnership with VMtv who have given Pricey Media the creative freedom and scope to develop some really exciting new projects for their channels."

We don't know what's worse - a confirmed expansion of Jordan's already smothering presence in the limelight, or a world where someone like her is the highest paid person in ANY field, let alone the fact that its television.

Truly HOrrific. Thoughts??
