AARON SPELLING, the man who gave us The Mod Squad, The Rookies, Charlie’s Angels and more died last year, leaving wife Candy “The Manor,” their 46,500-square-foot, 123-room, $47 million abode, and an estate worth around $600 million. While staying at the Bellagio, Mrs. Spelling hit the $100 slots (always wondered who played those machines) and won a $100,000 jackpot. She was reportedly up as much as $325,000 and ended up going home with more than $200,000 ... that’s just about enough to pay her electricity bill for a month.

DID YOU know that the average age for a graduate with a bachelor’s degree at UNLV is 27! They’re not holding students back at the four-year university ... seems that many college students quit school for the lure of easy money only to have a quarter-life crisis and go back to school at age 25.
