'New Girl' now single
Zooey Deschanel ("New Girl") has filed for divorce from husband Ben Gibbard, of Death Cab for Cutie.
The pair married two years ago.
Zooey filed for divorce in L.A. on Dec. 27 - Happy New Year! - citing - ta da! - irreconcilable differences.
Her publicist said the split was "amicable."
Don't worry about Zooey needing a little alimony. Records obtained by TMZ.com say that she makes an average of $95,000 a month and has expenses of only $22,550 a month. None of her three credit cards has a balance.
She has more than $1.5 million in banked cash and an additional $1,645,000 in stocks, bonds, etc.
Going into even further detail, TMZ says that the She & Him chanteuse spends $1,000 per month on groceries and house stuff; $500 eating out; $1,700 on utilities, phones, Internet and laundry; and $2,000 for clothes.
She also donates $1,500 a month to charity.
Tattle now knows far more about Zooey's finances than we do about our own.
* Drew Barrymore and her art-
consultant boyfriend, Will Kopelman, are engaged.
The couple started dating last February, and he reportedly proposed to her in Sun Valley, Idaho.
This will be Drew's third trip down the aisle.
* Concert revenue was up last
year, but ticket sales were down due to higher prices, a weak economy and sucky concerts.
Trade magazine Pollstar said yesterday that global revenue for the 50 top acts last year hit $3.07 billion, up nearly 4 percent from $2.96 billion in 2010. U2 was No. 1.
The average ticket price rose $10.42, or nearly 14 percent, to $86.53. The number of tickets sold fell 9 percent to 35.5 million.
Live Nation Entertainment Inc. continued to be the world's biggest concert promoter, selling 22 million tickets, down from 25.1 million a year ago. AEG was second with 12.2 million tickets, down from 12.5 million a year ago.
* You know how TV networks
give sports tickets to their stars so the networks can show them enjoying the game in a not-so-subtle bit of synergistic self-promotion?
Well, TMZ.com says that NBC gave Knicks tickets to three new "Celebrity Apprentice" contestants but that they placed former Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza and "Real Housewives" star Teresa Giudice in courtside seats and foul-mouthed comedian Lisa Lampanelli in the back.
Lisa: "I said, REALLY?? Well, guess what NBC . . . you owe me a big f------ apology.
"You think anyone is watching that 'Celebrity Apprentice' for anybody except me and a couple other people who really keep the ball rolling?
"I'll expect my gift basket with your apology and some good Knicks tickets tomorrow . . . ."
* Melanie Amauro got a $5
million recording contract by winning "The X Factor," but she still sees herself as a nurse someday.
Good. Because the music business is almost as bad as the newspaper business - but people are always going to get sick.
