(CBS) - A white diamond the size of a small egg has sold for more than $30 million at a Hong Kong auction.

the "flawless" oval diamond weighs 118 carats. It was found in southern Africa two years ago.

While the final price set a new record for a white diamond, it came in below the low end of Sotheby's estimated price.  



(CBS) - The fictional TV news anchor Ron Burgundy is now hawking Chrysler cars.

Actor Will Farrell plays the part of the anchorman, talking up the new Dodge Durango SUV.
