#CrapOnCelebrities: A celeb death, a celeb death anniversary and Bill O’Rielly is getting PAID man!!

Today is the one-year anniversary of PRINCE's death.  And I don't want to say anything good came of it, but whoever's collecting his royalties sure made some bank. In the year since his death, Prince has sold 7.7 million albums and songs.  Most of that happened in the MONTH after his death. In all of 2016, Prince sold 2.23 million albums.  That's more than ANY OTHER ARTIST.  Even ADELE couldn't match him.  She sold 2.21 million.  His best-selling albums were "The Very Best of Prince", "Purple Rain", and "1999"

 

CUBA GOODING SR. was found dead in a parked car in the L.A. area yesterday.  He was 72. Cuba is the father of actor CUBA GOODING JR., but he was a big deal himself back in the '70s.  He was the lead singer of the group THE MAIN INGREDIENT, and they had hits with "Everybody Plays the Fool". There's no cause of death yet.  There were no signs of foul play.  He was found slumped over the wheel . . . and with empty alcohol bottles and drug paraphernalia in the car. So, there's some talk that it might have been an overdose.  Surveillance video shows his car pulling up to the area around 3:30 in the morning.  A witness saw him sitting in the car at 10:00 A.M. wiping his brow. And it was around 1:00 P.M. that the police were called to the scene.  They tried to revive him, but unfortunately, it was too late.

 

BILL O'REILLY isn't leaving Fox News empty-handed.  Sources say he's getting a $25 million payday.  That's the equivalent of one year of the big, four-year deal he signed with Fox just last month. Sources also say that 21st Century Fox KNEW when the deal was being negotiated that the "New York Times" had that article in the works that revealed all the sexual harassment settlements that were paid to his accusers. And apparently, they left themselves some "outs" that allowed them to get away with only giving him a year's worth of salary, instead of the whole amount. 

 

April the Giraffe's live viewing party is coming to an end at 3:30 central time today. Final numbers for the 2 month long Internet sensation will be staggering. The Animal Adventure Park in NY says it's already had nearly 273 MILLION viewers since it started on February 10.

Total minutes spent watching is 8 BILLION minutes worldwide. 1.2 million people were watching when she finally did squeeze out her calf last weekend. Her channel is the second most live-viewed ever. Only League of Legends eSports channel has more. The big winner here is obviously Toys 'R' Us -- which came on as a sponsor, pre-birth.

 

Richard Simmons just came home from the hospital ... with a little help from the LAPD. Simmons checked himself in on Monday for gastrointestinal issues. He returned home Thursday afternoon ... but there was a problem. Simmons longtime housekeeper called the LAPD and said she was followed by paparazzi, and ended up driving into the garage and hiding because she believed they might be on her property.

Cops arrived and found Richard and the housekeeper inside the garage in his Range Rover. They formed something of a human shield -- and Richard threw a blanket over his head -- and went inside the house.

We're told he's in good spirits, was laughing and seems fine health-wise.

 

Amy Schumer was jogging in Chicago last week, and she stopped in at a mattress store to use the restroom.  Because the employee let her use it and didn't hassle her, Amy bought her a $2,000 mattress.  The woman's name is Sagine Lazarre, and she didn't know it was Amy until after Amy was gone

According to her upcoming memoir The Secrets Of My Life, Caitlyn Jenner underwent gender reassignment surgery in January and can now "live authentically for the first time in my life." To celebrate the success of her procedure, the former I Am Cait star is taking a tip from stepdaughter Kim Kardashian's book and will do a NAKED PHOTOSHOOT!

Back in the early 1990s, Mel Gibson was in talks to direct and star in Braveheart. But when Paramount, which was partnering with 20th Century Fox to produce the project, came to the table with just $15 million for its share of the budget—not even enough to shoot the battle scenes—the famously volatile Gibson went ballistic, throwing a glass ashtray through a wall. Gibson confirmed the outburst to The Hollywood Reporter, admitting it “was all posturing bulls**t.” But it was effective posturing, as Paramount quickly upped their offer.

 "Time" magazine has released its annual list of the 100 Most Influential People.  The celebrities who made the cut this year include Ed Sheeran, Emma Stone, Alicia Keys, Ryan Reynolds, James Corden . . .LeBron James, Tom Brady,John Legend, Demi Lovato, Simone Biles, Leslie Jones, Donald Glover, Samantha Bee,Chance the Rapper, Jordan Peele, Colin Kaepernick, Conor McGregor, Gretchen Carlson, and Viola Davis.

Our first female Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor is the oldest and sexiest at 87.

 

Gwyneth Paltrow is hosting her lifestyle brand’s first health event. The actress and Goop.com founder announced that the inaugural “In goop Health” wellness summit on June 10th will feature appearances by Cameron DiazNicole Richie and Lena Dunham. The daylong event in Los Angeles will include panel discussions, fitness and meditation sessions, organic beauty offerings and a pop-up shop. Tickets range from $500 to $1,500 and are on sale now.

 

The "X-Files" revival will NOT be a one-off.  Fox has picked up another 10 episodes.  Production will begin this summer . . . and it'll basically be a continuation of last year's six-episode 10th season. This is the 11th season . . . and Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are onboard again . . . but there aren't any other details, like a possible premiere date. 

 

"Seinfeld" fans will recognize the name 'Vandelay Industries.'  It's the bogus company George claimed he was interviewing with so that he could continue to collect unemployment benefits. Well, New York's Attorney General recently conducted an investigation called 'Operation Vandelay Industries,' which went after a fake architect.  It led to multiple indictments for fraud, which were announced yesterday. The "Seinfeld" connection was strong.  The fraud architect was named Paul Newman.  Yes, like Newman on the show.  And there were also times where George pretended to be an architect. 

 

This week's CD Releases include new music from Sheryl Crow, Brad Paisley, Incubus, Ray Davies, and Barry Manilow
