Is Tyra Banks on her way to be the next Oprah? The former supermodel certainly knows how to make bank, topping Forbes’ list of top-earning primetime women with at an estimated $30 million in income for just one year.
Like Oprah, Miss Banks is a tireless worker. Between her hosting duties on America’s Next Top Model and her daytime talk show, she still managed to fit in cameos on other TV shows and producer duties for shows like ABC’s True Beauty.
Other primetime women cracking the top ten are Katherine Heigl at number 2 with a reported $18 million in income and number 5, Mariska Hargitay who, after 10 years on Law and Order, nets 8.5 million a year. (Forbes)
