BRADY BUNCH'S ALICE, ANN B. DAVIS, IS DEAD AT 88

Ann B. Davis, who played Alice on “The Brady Bunch,” has died at the age of 88.

OPRAH WINFREY: $2 BILLION WAS “MY LIMIT” FOR THE L.A. CLIPPERS

Oprah Winfrey shares the excitement she had over possibly buying the L.A. Clippers, and the disappointment she experienced after she lost out to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, who’s paying $2 billion for the team. Oprah was part of a group that wanted to buy the Clippers after Donald Sterling was forced to sell the team because of his taped racist remarks. Ultimately, though, the $2 billion price was even too high for the media mogul. Winfrey says her advisors felt the asking price wouldn’t be a smart business move for her. “We went over that number, and then we went over that number again, and by the time we got to the final number [it was no longer] a good business decision. But for me? I was doing it. You know, my lawyers were like, ‘Do you even like basketball?’ I said, Yes, I LOVE basketball! And this is gonna be so much fun!’…I thought it would be entertaining,” said Winfrey. She added, “$2 billion — OK, now that’s my limit!”

STEVEN TYLER TRIES TO SLIDE NOTE UNDER MILEY CYRUS' HOTEL DOOR

Steven Tyler tried to leave a note under Miley Cyrus’ hotel room door in Finland on Saturday. The Aerosmith rocker posted a video on Facebook (called “Room Service In Helsinki”) in which he’s seen approaching a door while saying, in an Elmer Fudd voice, “I think Miley Cyrus is here. But shh! She’s very, very sleepy.” But Tyler can’t manage to slide the paper under the door or through the side. “I can’t seem to get it in her door. Maybe I ought to bang on it,” he says. Ultimately, Tyler sticks his message in the keycard slot. Cyrus retweeted the video, but it’s not clear if she and Tyler ever met up.
