And, it's not just her Emmy wins and the incredibly popular sitcom that give her such a fat wallet, endorsement deals (like the one she has with Pepsi) help her bottom line - a lot. All tolled, Forbes magazine estimates that the 41 year-old actress pulls in a staggering $19.3 million a year.

Even more upsetting than that? The fact that Kim Kardashian is a close second with $18.6. EGADS people. What are we thinking?

Rounding out the top 10 are:

Eva Longoria ($15 million)

Bethenny Frankel ($12 million)

Khloe Kardashian Odom ($11 million)

Tina Fey ($11 million)

Mariska Hargitay ($10 million)

Zooey Deschanel ($9 million)

Felicity Huffman ($9 million)
