He even has a new piece after ten years, titled “Her Love is Killin’ Me.” The success will surely amass a considerable amount of money for the group that may add up to their investment money.
Huey Lewis and the News recently announced their return after they managed to strike a deal with BMG to record a new album after 2001’s Plan B. He managed to have survived a hearing problem and, nowadays, still deals with the effect and consequences of his hearing loss.

Philip Michael Thomas – Retired Actor
Philip Michael Thomas made a name for himself back in the 1980s when he did the TV series Miami Vice, playing Detective Ricardo Tubbs’ role. With his success in acting, Thomas tried to venture into the music scene and made investments to succeed. Thomas’ last project was voicing Lance Vance’s characters in the videogame GTA: Vice City Stories. Usually, when these things happen to artists, they experience significant anxiety and insecurities. They tend to let themselves go and trap by bad habits.
There is a pain in career loss like no other, but not all celebrities are the same. For Thomas, his career was enough to invest in a brighter future, although he was a bit different from what he is original. We’re pretty sure he never gave up on his career, and now, he is still standing strong and fighting, proving to us all that how far you’ve come isn’t what matters; what matters is that you made the most out of your time that’s left.
Linda Gray – Still Acting

Aside from that, the 79-year-old star also played other notable roles, like in the movies Oscar and Wally’s Will. Despite her age, Gray remains active in the industry. She had a role in the recent film Grand Daddy Day Care and Intuitions.
However, Dallas remains her most successful show, for which Gray won four different awards, including a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress.

She is part of the Worlds TV series War and appeared in the movies Downtown Abbey and A Name Without a Place.
The 59-year-old brunette beauty was also a theatrical musical actress and a model. Back in the days, before she became famous worldwide and took over Hollywood, she did a lot of acting gigs in the U.K. She may not have a long list of movies, TV shows, and albums under her name, but her investments in great acting still paid off! She is living proof that practice makes perfect.

It is no wonder that Schneider has a $200-million net worth today, thanks to his hard work and good money management.
At 60 years old, Schneider spends most of his free time doing Facebook, Twitter, and Live Instagram feeds. We have to admit that the actor does not look his age at all! Who could be in their 60s and look that fabulous? His gorgeous face and excellent overall physique probably got him to many projects nowadays still. It seems like Schneider had a good investment when he decided to take on the career of acting and focus on it even in his more advanced years.
Erika Eleniak – Still Acting
Erika Eleniak joined Baywatch to play the role of Shauni McClain, which helped her rose to fame. Her film debut was playing a small part in the 1980s hit Steven Spielberg movie E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. Since then, Eleniak remains active in the industry and continuously acts. She was last seen in the 2018 movie Cor Values and set to appear in two films, which will probably come up in 2020. With these projects, her earnings will continue to increase her bank account’s contents, which may help her get a good credit score.
Baywatch is an iconic show that cast all icons even today because some shows are just fortunate like that. With Eleniak’s perfect combination of blue eyes and blonde hair, there is no doubt that she is not at all far off now from what she looked like before. She made it clear that she invested her time in a healthier lifestyle while still acquiring acting skills.

His fame continued until the 1990s and even led to the 1995 show Batman Forever. There’s the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but if there were Actors Hall of Fame, Kilmer’s name would undoubtedly be on that list. His journey was not comfortable, but he survived with his family and friends’ help and support.
He made a lot of investment into restoring his health. Insurance companies might have tried to offer Kilmer health insurance now that he should take care of his well being. Anyhow, Kilmer is back in front of the camera for the sequel of Tom Cruise’s iconic movie, Top Gun, titled Top Gun: Maverick. Aside from that, he has several movies coming up. It looks like he hasn’t lost his touch in the film after all, and after all those years, he still got it!
Rebecca de Mornay – Part of an Upcoming Movie
Rebecca de Mornay received her breakthrough role in the 1983 movie Risky Business, where she played Lana’s role, opposite Tom Cruise. Mornay played an exciting and risky role. She was invited as a paid guest at a young man’s place and later turned out to have taken advantage of him, and then ended up wanting to be with him for good. She portrayed the part well, almost like she wasn’t acting, and that’s when the world knew that she is such a good actress. Nobody could’ve done that part better than her.
Since then, Mornay has been active in the entertainment world. She appeared in the films The Hand that Rocks the Cradle, Wedding Crashers, and more. Sadly, the 60-year-old star suffered from alcohol abuse and even faced disorderly conduct and DUI charges. Thanks to her lawyers, she only had to pay her fine. Despite that, Mornay landed a part in the recently axed Jessica Jones on Netflix. She also has a movie that will probably come out next year.
Anthony Edwards – TV and Theater Actor
Anthony Edwards might be best known as Dr. Mark Green on the first eight seasons of ER. ER was one of the most successful TV shows of all time and is probably also one of the first few medical TV shows, making it even more enjoyable. And with faces like George Clooney and Edwards as lead actors, there was no argument why the show became such a huge success. The hit TV series managed to give him a Golden Globe award and six Screen Actors Guild Awards. He is a nominee for Primetime Emmy Awards for four consecutive years.
He appeared in the 1984 movie Revenge of the Nerds, where he played Gilbert’s lovable character. It was followed by a sequel movie and a role in Top Gun with Tom Cruise.

Shout out to queen Dolly! She is truly an icon.
Kelly LeBrock – Returning to the Big Screen
Kelly LeBrock surprised everyone when she appeared in the 1984 movie The Woman in Red with Gene Wilder. She has continuously appeared in TV series and films since then. However, amidst her fame, LeBrock suffered from substance abuse and drug addiction. LeBrock might be okay now to some degree. After her last appearance in the 2015 movie Hidden Chambers, she will return as Donna in a new film, Charlie Boy, out in December.
Returning to the film is not always an easy task for any celebrity – famous or not so famous. Actors and artists often become so nervous with their comebacks than they were on their first projects ever, probably because during their early years in show business, people weren’t expecting too much from them. With comebacks, it’s a bit different; aside from all the questions behind their hiatus, there is also the pressure and the previews whether or not they still have what it takes to be a star.
Pia Zadora – Singer
Pia Zadora received national attention when she did the 1982 movie Butterfly, for which she earned a Golden Globe Award as New Star of the Year. However, the highly-criticized film also gave her a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress and the Worst New Star. Aside from being an actress, Zadora also has a golden voice. She released her albums back in the day. With her extraordinary talents, she managed to amass a $25-million net worth, which may also result from her excellent money management skills.
She went through a tough time dealing with the loss of her billionaire husband. During her earlier days, Zadora was also in the theaters and musicals. She had albums, and she received much feedback through her acting. With all of her many talents, we can’t deny that one of Zadora’s most remarkable investments in life is taking care of the way she looks, and this is one of the brighter factors why she got the attention she deserved.

His John Wick movies were also big hits in the theater. At 55 years old, Reeves is still active in the industry. He is always busy doing an array of films. Keanu even has seven movies coming up.

Ruck was fortunate to get a comeback Netflix role in the chick flick Sierra Burgess is a Loser. Ruck is aging like fine wine, especially when he puts up a beard. Even though his role was the lead’s father, there is no doubt that Ruck is stealing the viewers’ attention to every scene.

Grace Jones caught everyone’s interest when she joined the modeling world in the 1960s. At the time, she was only a teenager. After gracing the cover of high-profile magazines like Elle and Vogue, she landed a career in Hollywood.

Her music also makes her stand out from all the rest. She is merely different and unique in so many ways. Jones’ take on reggae, pop, disco, and contemporary music is spot on genius, and without a doubt, she is an excellent investment in her life as a music legend.
CHUCK NORRIS – ACTING
To younger generations, Chuck Norris is the man behind a hundred memes. He’s the man that can make anyone hightail away during a fight. But to many who’ve enjoyed his heyday and his iconic projects, Chuck Norris is the actor and martial artist who made An Eye for an Eye, A Force of One, and Missing in Action iconic. Nowadays, despite repetitive hoaxes saying that he has died, the fact remains that Chuck Norris is still alive and kicking.
From Jackie Chan to Ariel Winter, most stars have already read the story of their death, long before it can even happen. Some tend to laugh about it, while some find it more seriously since they take it as a warning that people haven’t heard of them anymore. He recently appeared in Hawaii Five-0 and has several projects lined up for 2021. What most people don’t know is that, in real life, Norris was air police.

Jim seemed to have had a shift in his career, though. Even though he still pursues his passion in the entertainment industry, this time, he went a little bit on the political route. In fact, his social media platforms and video channels are filled with political cartoons. Recently, the actor said he plans to stop now that the United States has a new president. During his comeback in the years 2018 to the present, he is still acting in films and will be having a few new books published.
BILL COSBY – REFORM
At the age of 83 years old, Bill Cosby spent six decades of his career in the spotlight and has become one of the biggest names in Hollywood. This stand-up comedian, actor, and author also had good investments way back in the past, though some of his businesses didn’t stand the test of time.
Cosby is a father of five children; two of them have sadly passed away. The remaining three claimed that Cosby is a great father and an even better human being in spite of his ongoing controversies. Due to a series of unfortunate events, Cosby had to change his direction in life and has switched from being a celebrity to now living a low-key life. The former NFL superstar remains to be the center of several discussions, but despite all the Hollywood drama, one thing is for sure – he sure gave us his best performances both as an entertainer and athlete.
BILLY DEE WILLIAMS – STILL ACTING
We all loved him in the Star Wars franchise. Billy Dee Williams is a great actor, voice actor, singer, and artist.

Other than films and TV shows, Billy has a different way of expressing his love for art. He loves to paint and has, in fact, sold some of his work. The man is also an author and a writer. So far, he already has more than two books published. To add to this ever-growing list of personal ventures, the actor entered the world of the internet and video games. On another note, Billy reprised his role as Lando Calrissian in a video on Funny or Die. From this, we can guess that what he’s most interested in these days is working back with the films that have brought him joy and fame.
PAT SAJAK – STILL A GAME SHOW HOST
Since 1975, Pat Sajak has been irreplaceable as the hit game show Wheel of Fortune. He has received a ton of nominations, recognitions, awards, and accolades for his hosting abilities and contributions to the entertainment industry. The game show host also has a few wise investments in real estate and productions.
Just recently, Pat, only human, made a mistake of emphasizing a certain contestant’s speech capabilities. He has been called out, warned, bashed, and mocked for his doing. Even though the TV host already apologized for his actions, the people and the production demanded more. We can only hope for the best for the host and for anyone who was affected by this undesired event. This is just perhaps just another speed bump to his career, and Pat will bounce back in no time. We also hope for the recovery of any contestants who were involved in the misfortune.

Jaleel White is an actor, comedian, writer, and producer— but his long line of accolades and achievements do not end there! He has a few investments in productions, as well. His career started in 1989, and what a beginning it truly was. Jaleel’s character in the hit TV show Family Matters was so beloved by the viewers that instead of him being just in for a couple of episodes, he became a regular. We are guessing that’s how big of an impact the star made on the screens then.
Even now, when people often wonder how come they don’t hear about Jaleel anymore, he is still investing his time in entertainment underneath it all. The actor may just be on hiatus or possibly an early retirement in acting, but that doesn’t mean he has given up on entertaining people completely. As it turns out, he shifted his priorities to other forms of media and focused on his new podcast. From time to time, Jaleel still reminisces about his time on the hit show, of course. At the end of the day, however, we all must move forward.

Credits to his being risk-averse, even when he is a bit introverted, the filmmaker loves to take on places and events where there is a story to be told.

From the looks of the products’ designs and the model being Halle herself, women around the world would be so hyped to purchase her collection.
The actress is also a good mom, but she is not afraid to speak her truth when it comes to her past. From what we can gather, she is quite frank and knows what she wants. Halle never stopped acting, and just recently, she entered yet another world of entertainment.

Celine Dion is a diva both in real life and in her career. She is one of the most successful and popular artists of all time. Celine started off her career young, and as a kin to the legendary Barbara Streisand, Celine maneuvered her way into the world of fame, credits to her killer singing talent. We guess it really runs in the family.
Celine has sold millions of records worldwide; she brought to us some of the most romantic and the most inspirational songs of all time. The singer also has a voice that is identifiable within just two notes. In spite of all these recognitions, we believe Celine deserves more praise for being a strong woman. When her husband passed away, she struggled. The crooner might have had a few mistakes, but she got back up on her feet. Fans were worried about her weight loss, but Celine confirmed that she is healthy and that her weight now is intentional – she really wanted to be a size zero.

She is also at the forefront of the news.
On CBC, Reid hosted at the American crisis town hall with a lot of professional doctors and fellow big-time public speakers like herself. As a woman involved in politics, it is expected for her to be caught in the middle of some intrigues regarding journalism and politics. Still, she powers through— and that’s what we love most about her.
RAQUEL WELCH – STILL ACTING
Credits to the blockbuster film, Fantastic Voyage, Raquel Welch gained worldwide recognition ever since then. She was one of the most beautiful women during the ’60s and ’70s.

While we all know by now that the star had a face that could launch a thousand ships, she also had a voice that could rival it. Her singing career was mostly in a successful one-woman nightclub musical act in Las Vegas.
Now, at the age of 80 years old, Welch still looks so youthful and radiant. The actress does not age at all; it is almost unbelievable! We would embrace her daily skincare routine if she would ever be generous enough to share her tips. In 2017, the star acted in How to Be a Latin Lover, but years prior, she has appeared on many TV shows. It looks like her Hollywood journey is far from over, then!
MARIE OSMOND – RECORDING ARTIST
Marie Osmond is the sister of Donny Osmond. Together, they named themselves Donny & Marie, a singing band that thrived from 1976 to 1979.

In fact, the siblings have brought to life some of the most memorable songs of all time, some were revivals, but their renditions were great!
She is a member of the show business family “The Osmonds,” so it is natural for her to be in the spotlight. Just recently, Marie shocked a ton of people when she left The Talk all of a sudden.
