Say what you will, but the ladies of Hollywood are bringing in big bucks – at least, if Forbes is to be believed. The magazine reports that the 20 top paid TV actresses and reality stars of 2013 earned a total of $183 million dollars.

And who is the queen bee of all those top earners, you ask? Sofia Vergara, of course. The “Modern Family” star tops the list for the third year in a row with a whopping $37 million dollars. That beat her previous total by $7 million bucks. In addition to the $325-thousand bucks per episode she makes for her ABC sitcom, she’s also brings in the bucks with endorsement deals from Diet Pepsi, CoverGirl, Head & Shoulders, and AT&T.


Here’s a look at some of the other rich chicks in Hollywood:


  • Mariska Hargitay ($13 million)
  • Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting ($11 million)
  • Julianna Margulies ($10 million)
  • Ellen Pompeo ($10 million)
