Move Over Oprah, Simon Cowell Wants Your Job
Already jealous of people such as Simon Cowell and Oprah Winfrey with their millions of dollars, we just got a bit more envious. Poor Oprah better watch her back because it looks as though Cowell is chasing her coat tail in taking over the highest paid playa position on TV.
Last year alone, Oprah made $275 Mil and if Simon's newest deal goes through, he'll be taking that much and then some.
The New York Post says that Simon is in talks with British billionaire Sir Philip Green to start a new production company that will create TV shows in the UK and the US. On top of that, Simon's contract with American Idol is up for re-negotiation and you know he's going to milk those hos dry. A source said that Simon's new contract with Idol will "make him the best-paid star of TV." (source)
And if any of us think Oprah is going to sit on her big a$$ and let this happen, we're mistaken. That hair poof alone will open a can of whoop a$$ on Cowell. All she needs to do is squeeze into some spandex and that alone will send the Brit over the edge.
