Britney Spears Is Going To Extend Her Vegas Residency

There’s no denying that money talks! 

Britney Spears just extended her concert-residency in Las Vegas – because the money is just too good to walk away.

Yesterday, she extended her deal for three more years – at $40-million-dollars a year!

Britney began her Vegas residency back in 2013. She is now committed to perform through 2019.  She says that Vegas is like a “second home” to her and her residency has been a “fabulous experience.”



Johnny Depp Is "Forbes'" Most Overpaid Actor for the Second Straight Year

2.  Will Smith, returns $5 for each $1 paid; 

3.  Channing Tatum, returns $6 for each $1 paid; 

4.  Will Ferrell, returns $6.50 for each $1 paid;

A "Jeopardy" Contestant Passed Away Before Her Episode Aired   

Next Wednesday's episode of "Jeopardy" will feature Cindy Stowell, a 41-year-old contestant from Austin, Texas.

But sadly, she won't be around to see it, because she passed away on Monday.  Cindy was suffering from Stage Four cancer when she filmed the episode back in August, and she knew that she only had about six months to live.

Alex Trebek was aware that she was sick, and he says that appearing on "Jeopardy" was a lifelong dream of hers.  Quote, "We're glad she was able to do it.  All of us offer our condolences and best wishes to her family and friends."

This is the first time "Jeopardy" is airing a new episode where one of the contestants has died since the taping.
