PRINCE PAID $500,000 FOR 15-MINUTE MEETING WITH KRISTEN STEWART
What does a Middle Eastern Prince do when he has a wad of cash and some spare time? He splurges $500,000 on a 15-minute meet and greet with Twilight star Kristen Stewart. An unidentified Prince paid more than $33,333 a minute to mingle with the star in December last year. That’s roughly $555 a second.

The movie executive says when he took the offer to Stewart, her immediate response was “How much?” The 23-year-old actor met the Prince, and his team of bodyguards, at Madison Square Garden.

BRIDE-TO-BE CAMPAIGNS FOR JON BON JOVI TO WALK HER DOWN THE AISLE
Over the past couple of years, plenty of fans have launched online campaigns to have their favorite celebrity escort them to their prom, or their military ball, or to a similar event. But one woman in Australia wants something truly unique from her favorite singer, Jon Bon Jovi: She wants him to walk her down the aisle at her wedding next month. The bride, Branka Delic, is due to marry her boyfriend Gonzalo "Gonzo" Cladera on October 12 in the same Las Vegas wedding chapel where Jon married his wife, Dorothea. It just so happens that Bon Jovi is playing with his band in Las Vegas that same night. The rockers will take the stage at 8 p.m., but Delic's wedding is at 2 p.m., so Branka figures that Jon could make it if he really wanted to. In addition to tweeting the singer with her request, and setting up a Facebook page, Branka has created a website called BonJoviWalkMeDowntheAisle.com to plead her case.

TV Guide has released its list of the 60 Greatest Catchphrases. These indelible and infinitely quotable words spoken by our favorite TV characters and personalities are forever etched in our brains.
Ed McMahon hailed the arrival of Johnny Carson from behind the Tonight Show curtain for 30 years and it never got old. Just ask Jack Nicholson.
A forehead-smacking Homer Simpson popularized it, other residents of Springfield have said it at one time or another and the Oxford English Dictionary even deemed it worthy of an entry.
3. "Yada, yada, yada."
The ultimate show about nothing gave us more than its fair share of catchphrases, but this Seinfeld signature uttered by Elaine to gloss over a bad date and favored by George's felonious girlfriend is still really something.
4. "How you doin'?"
We can't imagine how many times Joey Tribbiani's best pick-up line was tried out by Friends fans during the show's heyday, but it's safe to say no one said it better than Matt LeBlanc.
5. "What'choo talkin' 'bout, Willis?"
Gary Coleman's unforgettable delivery of Arnold Jackson's trademark line on Diff'rent Strokes made it the go-to phrase when you just had to tell a pal he was speaking nonsense.
6. "The tribe has spoken."
Reality TV has spawned countless elimination catchphrases, but Jeff Probst's final words to the ousted Survivor competitors are the perfect blend of camp and cool.
7. "And that's the way it is."
Long before the advent of cable news, revered newsman Walter Cronkite closed his nightly broadcast with these iconic words. And we understood we'd just seen and heard everything we needed to know.
8. "Who are you wearing?"
When Joan Rivers first took to the Golden Globes red carpet to ask stars about their designers, the E! host spawned an infotainment genre and turned celebrities into walking billboards.
9. "Come on down!"
The Price Is Right contestants have been rushing the stage for more than 40 years upon hearing this command, most famously uttered by Johnny Olson.
10. "It's gonna be legen — wait for it — dary."
