Britney Spears Wasn’t Worth The $18 Million She Wanted For X Factor

Britney Spears 18 Million X Factor

But Britney Spears is priceless!

Apparently not to X Factor executives, as it is rumored she was DENIED a raise for a second season — and that was the push she needed to walk away from the show!

While Brit Brit has said she's leaving the X Factor gang because she wants to get back to performing, it seems she might be stretching the truth.

The little lady apparently requested a $3 million raise to return to the show — but what Britney wants, Britney doesn’t always get.

TLC Made Honey Boo Boo Holla With Massive Raise After Second Episode

Filed under: Business BlitzReality TV

If you're going to become a reality star, TLC may be one of the best employers around!

The Learning Channel appreciated Honey Boo Boo Child and the rest of her family appearing on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo so much, that they got a MAJOR raise after just the second episode.

America's new favorite fam was originally earning between $5,000-$7,000 an episode, but after the good people at TLC knew they had a monster hit on their hands, the Thompsons got a bump to between $15,000-$20,000 per ep!

Will that be enough to end Momma June's extreme couponing? Old habits die hard, so probably not.

Plus, she doesn't want the money and fame to change her family. While they are accepting some financial assistance from TLC, she turned down a free house!

That's not all. Agents are

How To Raise Gifted Children

Someone once said that intelligence is 49 percent genetic and 51 percent stimulation.

So if you're a parent that means there's a large chunk of prodding and needling for you to encourage your child with that might just nudge him/her closer to the level of a genius.

How, you ask?

Child Stars Of Modern Family Want A Raise Too!

Filed under: TV NewsBusiness BlitzSofia Vergara

The adult cast of Modern Family got the pay raise they wanted after salary negotiations with 20th Century Fox Television ended last Friday, but now the youngsters want their fair share as well!

13-year-old's Rico Rodriguez and Nolan Gould will be demanding a raise alongside their 14-year-old co-star, Ariel Winter.

They won't get the big bucks that Sofia Vergara, Ty Burrell and company negotiated ($175,000 per episode), but they should be getting a significant raise since they share equal screen time.

21-year-old Sarah Hyland is already making more than her younger co-stars and will also be getting a raise while 5-year-old Aubrey Anderson-Emmons will continue to earn the least of the group.

Whatever deal these kids end up getting, we hope it's good. The show wouldn't be what it is without them, so they totally deserve the money!

Modern Family Cast Shows Up For Table Read

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersBusiness Blitz

It's official!

The Modern Family cast has put their differences with the studio that employs them aside and showed up for the rescheduled table read on Thursday morning.

After skipping the inital table read and filing a lawsuit against 20th Century Fox TV on Tuesday, the cast decided that they are incredibly grateful for the show and have proven it by continuing to work during salary negotiations.

Since the show is so successful, we understand why the cast wants more money. Hopefully their commitment to continuing the hard work that goes into each and every episode will convince execs to give them each a reasonable raise.
