What would you do if you won the lottery? New house? New car? Quit your job? One thing that most of us say we WOULDN’T do is – tell others, even our own family, according to a new poll. A survey of over 1,100 people, commissioned by Play Pennsylvania, looked at people’s lottery playing habits and how they would react to hitting the jackpot. 83% said they would keep their winnings a secret to avoid the outstretched hands of their friends and family. On the other hand, 88% said they’d donate the money, giving a slice to charity or relatives in need. And interestingly, 2% said they’d walk away from their significant other if they were a big winner!


Britney Spears and Sam Asghari are officially Mr. and Mrs. — but it didn’t happen before some very serious legal legwork, to make sure her millions are protected down the road. TMZ reports that sources close to the newly married couple say they have an ironclad prenup in place where Asghari doesn’t get a dollar from the fortune Spears has made up to this point. Word is that lawyers were called shortly after the couple got engaged to start figuring things out. Britney’s worth a reported $60 million, with potential for serious earnings in the future. You might recall that at one point, Asghari joked that HE was the one who wanted the prenup — to protect his jeep and shoe collection.

Doctor Who” has found its latest villain. Neil Patrick Harris, the star of “How I Met Your Mother”, is joining the BBC sci-fi series.

Showrunner Russell T Davies called his character the “greatest enemy the Doctor has ever faced”. Harris, who is set to headline Darren Star’s Netflix comedy series “Uncoupled”, joins new Doctor Ncuti Gatwa and Heartstopper breakout Yasmin Finney, who will play ‘Rose’, as well as returning stars David Tennant and Catherine Tate.
