Top 20 Richest Women in Entertainment

Superficial / January 19, 2007

Forbes has compiled a confusing list of the Top 20 Richest Women in Entertainment. To put together the list they ruled out “non-working celebs who essentially live off royalties (Barbra Streisand, for example), and we also excluded ‘old Hollywood” types like Elizabeth Taylor.'” So basically it’s the 20 richest women in entertainment that you’d be familiar with, and not your mom. Here’s their list in order from richest to poorest:

1. Oprah Winfrey
2. J.K. Rowling
3. Martha Stewart
4. Madonna
5. Celine Dion
6. Mariah Carey
7. Janet Jackson
8. Julia Roberts
9. Jennifer Lopez
10. Jennifer Aniston
11. The Olsen Twins
12. Britney Spears
13. Judge Judy
14. Sandra Bullock
15. Cameron Diaz
16. Gisele Bundchen
17. Ellen DeGeneres
18. Nicole Kidman
19. Christina Aguilera
20. Renee Zellweger

There’s a lot of names on there I just don’t understand. Why is Jennifer Aniston number 10? And how did Renee Zellweger make the list? This is supposed to be the Top 20 Richest Women in Entertainment, not Most Likely To Be Confused for a Homeless Person.
