Bethenny Frankel: Forbes’ Highest Paid Mom
Reality star Bethenny Frankel edges out A-list Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie and even supermodel Gisele Bundchen as the top-earning celebrity mom, according to Forbes magazine.
“Skinny Girl” Frankel reportedly took in $55 million in earnings over the period of May 2010 – May 2011. But, she would not quite confirm the figure, saying, “There are a lot of numbers being tossed out there. To be perfectly honest, I’m not that great at math and I don’t really look at my bank account that much.”
Although Bethenny did hint the magazine wasn’t far off.
“Forbes usually gets things at least close to right. I mean, they are Forbes,” she said.
According to Forbes’ list, Gisele and Judge Judy Sheindlin tied for second reportedly pocketing $45 million, while author Danielle Steel took fourth spot with $35 million. Tied in fifth place were Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker with $30 million each.
She may have taken the top but Bethenny considers Angelina to be the top winner. “Look, she’s sleeping with Brad Pitt,” Bethenny laughed. “You know what I mean? She wins!”Get free updates directly to your e-mail from Showbiz Renegade. Just enter your e-mail below and confirm your subscription by clicking the link that will be sent to your e-mail.
