Battle Of The Super-Rich:  Bill Gates vs. Jeff Bezos

Microsoft founder Bill Gates is hanging onto his title of the world’s richest man by the skin of his teeth.

 Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos (Beh-zos) is now worth about $84.6 billion (after adding $1.8 billion to his pile of dough last week when he bought Whole Foods.)

That puts Bezos a mere $5 billion behind Gates – and counting.


Beyoncé And Jay Z Welcome The Twins

It looks like Beyoncé and Jay Z have welcomed their twins into the world. Neither of them has made an official announcement about the birth, but “People” magazine confirmed the news -- and Beyoncé’s dad announced the birth on Twitter.

TMZ reports that Beyoncé gave birth to a boy and a girl last week and that all three are still at a Los Angeles hospital because of a "minor issue," but should be released soon.


Bill Cosby Got a Mistrial, but Prosecutors Will Try Him Again 

The judge in the BILL COSBY case declared a mistrial on Saturday, because the jury couldn't reach a verdict after 52 hours of deliberation. 

But he added, quote, "I remind everyone that this is not vindication or victory."  Cosby is STILL charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault, over a 2004 encounter with Andrea Constand.  And prosecutors say they WILL retry him.  There's no word when, and Cosby is free on bail until then.

Bill didn't issue a statement, but his wife CAMILLE did, and she went OFF.  She called the district attorney "exploitively ambitious," the judge arrogant, Constand's attorneys unethical, and the media "blatantly vicious."
