Cody Calafiore

Temple alum Cody Calafiore took home the runner-up prize on last night's finale of the 16th season of "Big Brother." So what will the Howell, NJ native do with his cash? "I was already talking to my brother about reinvesting it," Calafiore said. "I wanted to pay off all of my student loans but unfortunately $50,000 is not even enough"

C'mon, nothing fun?

"I have to. The loans a real ball and chain every month," Calafiore said.

Former Phillie Mitch Williams is suing his former employer MLB Network for breach of contract, wrongful termination and defamation and Gawker Media, the company that owns sports news site Deadspin, for defamation, stemming from a story Deadspin reported about Williams’ behavior at his 10-year-old son’s baseball tournament. The suit was filed in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Camden County.

“We are aware that Mitch Williams has filed a law suit against MLB Network. We have not received it, but we have reviewed the reported claims in the statement issued today by his lawyer and there are inaccuracies included throughout,” a spokesman for MLB Network said. “We can confirm that Mitch Williams is no longer an MLB Network analyst. We believe that the behavior he demonstrated at the youth baseball tournament speaks for itself.” 

Gawker Media has yet to return a statement.

South Philly born and raised Amber Rose, a former Delilah's dancer, filed for divorce from Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa, according to TMZ

Rose cites irreconcilable differences and asks for full custody of their son, Sebastian. Why the split? TMZ reference rumors of infidelity, although acknowledges there's nothing about that in the divorce filings. Even worse? TMZ reports the split is quite bitter. Nick Cannon, who is going through his own marital troubles with Mariah Carey, has said he is not the cause of the break up. He recently became Rose's manager. 

Rose and Khalifa have been married for a year. Previously, Rose dated Kanye West

5. University of Iowa
6. University of California, Santa Cruz
7. University of Miami

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's" Rob McElhenney stopped by St. Joe's Prep to speak at the scholarship and donor luncheon.

Rob McElhenney, the star of FX/FXX's "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," stopped by St. Joe's Prep, his alma mater, today to speak at the school's annual scholarship and donor reception. McElhenney (class of '95) established a scholarship fund at the St. Joe's Prep last spring, along with wife Kaitlin Olsen, who plays Sweet Dee on the long-running sitcom.

"Young men, you get very few truly great opportunities in this life," I hear McElhenney said in his speech. "Now you’ve earned one. The only question is, what will you do with it?”

"It's Always Sunny" is the longest running live-action cable comedy series, and the second-longest live-action comedy series in television history (tied with "Sanford and Sons").

Actor Bill Murray sings to the crowd at a screening of the original "Ghostbusters" film during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto on Friday, Sept. 5, 2014. The Toronto Film Festival has turned its second day into a very welcome new holiday: "Bill Murray Day," where three of Murray's classics, "Stripes," ''Groundhog Day" and "Ghostbusters," were to screen ahead of the premiere of Murray's latest, the next-door-neighbor comedy "St. Vincent."

Instagram user  @_clevergirl potentially had a night to remember last night.

He posted a photo of comedy legend Bill Murray hanging out at Fishtown's El Bar (1356 N. Front St.).

No confirmation of the veracity of the photo (no answer at the bar, and waiting for a call back from photographer), but how can I resist a little Murray-in-Philly love?Murray was recently at the Toronto Film Festival where he was promoting his new movie "St. Vincent" co-starring Philadelphia's own Jaeden Lieberher, as the young Oliver. Check out the trailer:
