Fantasia Puts North Carolina Home on the Market

RCA(LOS ANGELES) -- Fantasia is selling her North Carolina mansion.  It's the same giant house that the American Idol winner nearly lost to foreclosure in 2009, according to TMZ.

The five-bedroom, 38,768-square-foot mansion in Charlotte is on the market for $800,000, according to TMZ.  The website reports that's nearly $500,000 less than what Fantasia paid for the place in 2007.

There's no word on whether Fantasia's received any offers yet for the property.

Peyton Manning Leaves Big Tip, Server Fired for Posting Photo

Andy Lyons/Getty Image(RALEIGH, N.C.) -- A receipt from Manning’s March 2 dinner in Raleigh, N.C., at the Angus Barn, a restaurant the owner says is frequented by celebrities, went viral after his server posted a picture of it on the Internet.

The bill for $739.58 included an 18-percent gratuity, but Manning added an additional $200—making the tip about 50 percent of the total.

The server, identified only as “Jon” by the receipt, was immediately fired by restaurant owner Van Eure for posting the photo, the owner said.

Eure told the Triangle Business Journal that she was livid when she learned about the picture.

“This goes against every policy we have,” Eure said. “It’s just horrible.

She said the restaurant has a strict policy that their private dining experiences stay private, and the server violated that privacy.
