The Stars of "The Big Bang Theory" Are Now Insanely Rich
The three main cast members of "The Big Bang Theory" have ended their hold-out . . . after agreeing to new deals that'll make them INSANELY RICH.
JIM PARSONS, JOHNNY GALECKI and KALEY CUOCO signed three-year contracts, which will pay them $1 million per episode EACH. That triples their previous salaries, which were in the $325,000 to $350,000 range.
Seasons eight through 10 are expected to include a total of 72 episodes, which means they'll rake in $72 million over the next three years. But that's not all.
They're also getting a cut of the show's profits, which could make their new deals worth anywhere from $90 to $100 million apiece.
It's hard to imagine a show can stay afloat while cutting paychecks like these, but Deadline.com says that with all the advertising and syndication, it's still expected to generate $1 BILLION in profits.
SIMON HELBERG and KUNAL NAYYAR are the only two cast members who still don't have a deal. But that's expected to happen any minute now, and the cast is scheduled for a table read tomorrow.

Gwyneth Paltrow Pays $5,240 for a Procedure That Feels Like Having Your Face Smacked with an Electrified Rubber Band
Would you pay $5,240 to have someone smack your face with an electrified rubber band? You would if you were GWYNETH PALTROW.
Gwyneth tells "Hello!" magazine that she's never had plastic surgery, but she keeps her skin looking great with a painful facial procedure called Thermage laser treatment, which is also known as FACE-IRONING.
She explains, quote, "It's non-invasive but it's quite painful, like having your face smacked with a rubber band that has an electric shock in it. But it works." She says it boosts collagen levels in the skin's lower layers, creating a tightening effect to the top layer.
It seems like someone should pay YOU to let them do that, but Gwyneth actually opens up HER checkbook for this. A half-face treatment costs around $3,900, while a full-face of electrified rubber band-smacking will run you a hefty $5,240.
