BIG BANG THEORY: Cast to Get Big Money

The stars of The Big Bang Theory are now making Friends money!

After a long contract dispute, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco have finally agreed to new three-year contracts worth $1 million an episode. That's the same amount the stars of Friends were making in their heyday. It's a big raise -- the trio had been earning "only" $300,000 an episode.

That leaves only Simon Helberg (Howard) and Kunal Nayyar (Raj) -- who are currently making $125K and $75K per episode, respectively -- without contracts. Co-stars MelissaRauch and Mayim Bialik had already signed.

The contract dispute has already postponed production on the upcoming season, which was supposed to begin last week. In March, CBS renewed The Big Bang Theory for three more seasons.

RICHARD GERE: Buy My Hamptons Mansion, Please

Richard Gere is having a hard time unloading his Hamptons estate. 

The star has slashed the asking price by $8.5 million in a desperate bid to sell the six-acre property. That followed a $9 million cut made in April. Gere was originally asking $65 million, but now will take a mere $47.5 million.

Still, that's almost seven times the $6.9 million the actor paid for the place in 2006.

The waterfront spread has a gym, basketball courts, an outdoor fireplace pavilion and a 60-foot heated pool.

In her post, Washington wrote, "#OTR. Can. Not. Wait."

JACKIE, TONY AND DONNIE

The morning show on KPEK-FM in Albuquerque NM. We're just three friends that sit around and talk about stuff. We happen to have microphones in front of our faces. We call our listeners "The Six" because that's usually how many people are listening. Jackie and Tony are married (yes...to each other), and Donnie is practically their 4th son. Jackie is a graduate of La Cueva High School, while Donnie was raised in the metropolis of Moriarty New Mexico. Tony moved here in 1997, and has been proud to call Albuquerque "home" ever since.
