I did a male version of this list a week or two ago, and now it’s time for the females! Which actresses are the highest paid on the small screen right now? This list, compiled via Forbes, aims to find out.
This takes into account total earnings from the year, so it can include current payment for shows, rerun syndication payment, advertising revenue or outside income (such as restaurant ownership or money generated from a fashion line). So if you’re confused about who is where, that might explain it.
It is sad though, that overall this list has lower numbers on it than the male one. Hollywood needs to cut that crap out. You’ll also notice that there’s a few reality stars on this list. The truth is that payment for reality TV “stars” is going up. Especially for the ones who have created an empire around their “brand”.
