Perez Hilton was scheduled to make an appearance on the Wendy Williams show. Hilton made a precursory social media blast that he and Wendy would be (in his words) “getting into the nitty gritty of all the celeb durt” , calling Chris Brown out specifically.
Well, that didn’t go off too well with Chris Brown and the Twitter Battle ring bells sounded as, one after another, Brown and Hilton took hits and threw punch.

Federal Reserve to begin distribution of new $100 bill today:
The Federal Reserve will begin distributing the new $100 bill today. The new bill has hologram strips and images, along with larger, and sometimes raised, print. These and other updates to the bill have been made to reduce counterfeiting attempts. Most people use bills no higher than the $20 bill, as it is the highest (and sometimes only) denomination distributed through the automatic teller machine (ATM). The frequency of individuals using the actual teller has decreased dramatically. Some banks even charge their consumers when they utilize live-teller service. When the teller asks you how you would like to receive your money, do you request $100 bills? Are you eager to get your hands on the new $100 bill?
