Celebrities make more money than we simpletons do -- that isn't entirely new. But learning exactly how much they're worth? Now, that's sometimes hard to believe.
Take Julia Louis-Dreyfus, for example. She's a gifted comedian, no doubt, who managed to break "The 'Seinfeld' Curse," but did you know she's worth a whopping $3 billion, thanks largely to family money?

Brandon Morgan wanted to get up early to chase tornadoes. But Morgan, 22, overslept, and by the time he rolled out of bed on Monday, the first in a series of deadly storms was already descending on Moore, his hometown. Morgan, whose hobby is chasing storms, first spotted the twister near the 7-Eleven gas station. He reported the sighting and then ran into the station to urge the four people inside to take cover. Minutes later, all four were killed.
Morgan, meanwhile, had raced away in his car, not realizing just how big the tornado was — a category 4, out of 5, on the Enhanced Fujita (EF) scale. The storm seemed to follow him as he sped across town on Interstate 35. When the storm dissipated, he called his brother, who lives nearby, and the two headed to their grandfather’s house, not far from the 7-Eleven. Along the way they pulled two women out of the ruins of a Dollar General, and tried to get to a home that was on fire. “You hear screams, you go help,” says Morgan, who works in security and is a National Guardsman. “The military taught me that.”
We all know he's Pope Francis, but is he also an exorcist?
Pope Francis appears to have performed an exorcism on a wheelchair-bound young man who believers in the practice claim was possessed by evil.
According to TV2000, a Catholic television channel, the act was carried out in St Peter's Square after Mass on Sunday.
Smiling broadly, the Pope initially shook the man's hand, but the South American pontiff's expression changed dramatically after a priest from the Legionaries of Christ, a conservative order, leaned in close and spoke a few words to him.
The relationship began when she was a minor, but now she is being charged for sexual crimes. Should she be?
(CBS) SEBASTIAN, Fla. - A Florida state attorney says the charges against Kaitlyn Hunt, an 18-year-old high school student who engaged in a same-sex relationship with a 15-year-old classmate, will not be dropped, despite petitions from the public, CBS affiliate WTSP reports.
Hunt has been expelled from Sebastian River High School in Sebastian, Fla. and is charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious battery of a child 12 to 16 years of age as a result of the relationship.
The case began in February after the younger girl's parents notified authorities when Hunt turned 18. Since then, the story has garnered national attention for what some say is a gay rights issue.
