The Highest Paid Television Actress for 2013 Is ...
Which Television Actress Brings Home the Fattest Paycheck?
If you had to bet a dollar on which of all the lovelies staring at your from your tv set earns the most money in a year, who would you put it on? Perhaps Julianna Margulies whohas been a television staple for nearly 20 years? Or, what about Shirley MacLaine? She had to have pulled in a big pile of loot for her "Downtown Abbey" stiint last year, right? Maybe. But neither one of those actresses, nor the hundreds of others who live in tv-land pulled in as much moola as a certain Colombian bombshell ....
Yup. For the second year running, "Modern Family's" sexy Gloria Pritchett, Sofia Vergara, is the highest-earning television actress.
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)
Ellen Pompeo ($9 million)
Wow. All that loot just for getting to be on television. Must be nice. Must. Be. Nice.
