Add that to the bank account!

Oprah Winfrey is about to leave Chicago behind, along with her Harpo Studios lot.

There were lots of bids for the 3.5 acre Near West Side space, but Sterling Bay Co. beat them all with their $32 million offer.

Oprah’s show was moved there in 1990, but now she’s almost entirely based elsewhere, so she’s selling her $7.75 million Water Tower Place condo too!

A Harpo spokeswoman laid it all out, saying

Man Smuggles 40,000 Illegal Piranhas Into New York! YES, 40,000!!!

Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!Scary!Fish

A man smuggled 40,000 piranhas into New York and sold them for a buck a piece!

How…is…this…even…possible??

A man is facing fines to the tune of $70,000 after illegally smuggling 40,000 piranhas into New York!

A 66-year-old man, a tropical fish salesman by trade, brought 39,548 piranhas in from Hong Kong between 2011 and 2012 by having his supplier declare the fish to be silver tetras.

The man has plead guilty to the charges and will probably have to

Monty Python Adds 4 More Performance Dates After Tickets For Live Show Sell Out In 43.5 Seconds!

If this outfit is on the costume rack for Monty Python's live show, then we'd love to get tickets…if we can even get tickets, that is!

Just like John Cleese's dead parrot, the tickets for Monty Python's reunion stage show on July 1st at London's O2 performing venue ceased to be almost right after they went up for grabs.

In fact, 14,500 tickets for the One Down, Five to Go show became sold out in 43.5 seconds this morning.

But have no fear, that's merely a flesh wound, because four more performance dates were added!

Congrats to John, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones for bringing about this reunion!

It'll be nice to have the Knights of the Round Table back, even if some of the seats are going for $2,600 on some resale websites! It's probably less expensive to get an actual seat at Camelot's table.

Time for us to hold a Spanish Inquisition on how to get tickets at an affordable price!

Harry Styles' Dirty Burberry Shirt Brings In Almost $5,000 For Charity!!

harry styles burberry shirt attitude gif

Harwowza!!

We can’t decide if the highest bidder of this auction is luckiest or the most generous One Direction fan ever — but then again, maybe he’s both!

As we reported last month, musical 1D hottie Harry Styles put up his sexy, unwashed, animal print Burberry shirt on Hardlyeverwornit.com to help raise money for charity. UNICEF, specifically.

The shirt started getting bids in mid-November, and a few weeks later the item sold for a whopping 3,002 British pounds! That’s equivalent to 4,835.55 U.S. dollah dollah bills!! DAYUMN!

So who was the fortunate winner? A wealthy businessman in Texas, apparently!!

Maybe he’ll take our earlier suggestion and try to clone Hazza with any remaining genetic material left on the garment. Or maybe he'll wear it every day for the rest of his life. Or maybe it's meant to be the Best Gift Ever.

So many possibilities!!

Pour it up for Rihanna!

As of last week, RiRi officially surpassed the 10 million album mark in America alone, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Cheers to last week, we'll drink to that!

Rihanna sold 5,000 albums in the week ending on November 10th, upping her grand total to 10,001,000! Uh, we're pretty sure that's binary for "huge life achievement!"

Take a bow, RiRi! You deserve it!

With one double platinum album, six platinums, and one gold, it's clear that you've shone bright like a diamond in this music industry! Congrats!
