I made some chipotle Mac n' Chese as my potluck contribution to my New Year's Eve Party. Macaroni, whole milk, a stick of butter, a few chipotle peppers and four cups of cheese. Total, $8.76. So, I guess I was paid -$8.76 to attend my New Year's Eve Party.
On the other hand, If your name was Paris Hilton you got paid over a million bucks to be flown to Australia and be a judge for the Bikini Babe contest at the Bondi Icebergs Club. If you were the genius behind Popozao, and affectionately go by K-Fed, you probably made around $20,000.
Planning a big shindig? Throw a million bucks at her, and Paris will be one of your honored guests. And no, it doesn't have to be in the form of one dollar bills that you stuff in her undies.
Alternatively, for that same million or so bucks, you could snag Jessica Simpson, Alex Rodriguez or Aerosmith. Too steep for you? In the $100k-$500k range your guests can rub elbows Desperate Housewives stars Eva Longoria or Teri Hatcher (not a package deal). Still not in your budget? Mario Lopez will drink your punch for less than fifty grand. Dancing not included. Under $25k gets you Porn Star, Tera Patrick. Dancing still not included. Potsie from Happy Days will make an appearance for less than five grand!
But in the deal of the century, shell out $500-$1,000 and you can have Deal or No Deal models at your party! You think Ursula charges extra?
