Tina Fey and Eva Longoria: Forbes’ Highest Paid TV Actresses


Everyone loves women with money, it is just does a great deal to boost women empowerment – and Forbes’ magazine does a super duper job at keeping tabs on who these women are.

Forbes recently came out with its annual list of TV’s highest paid actresses and Tina Fey and Eva Longoria are the front-runners for this year.

The ‘30 Rock’ actress had a spectacular year because aside from being a lead character on the show, she was also the producer and head writer of her NBC series. Fey also released her debut book, ‘Bossypants’, which reportedly sold 150,000 copies in its first month alone.

Longoria, on the other hand, continues to lord it over ABC’s ‘Desperate Housewives’. She also added to her earnings via endorsement deals with L’Oreal and LG.

Also on the list are Longoria’s co-star Marcia Cross, ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ lead Mariska Hargitay, and ‘CSI’ veteran Marg Helgenberger. All of these earned $10 million from May 2010 to May 2011.

Desperate Housewives’ Teri Hatcher and Felicity Huffman come in next, each raking in $9 million a year.

‘Cougar Town’ star Courteney Cox and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’s Ellen Pompeo each made $7 million. And, ‘The Good Wife’ star and recent Emmy winner Julianna Margulies rounds out the top 10, earning $6 million.
