Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara has topped Forbes' latest list, one centering on the highest-paid actresses on TV.
People reports that this is her second year in a row winning after earning $30 million because of a pay increase for Modern Family. She also earned steady income through Diet Pepsi and Covergirl endorsements, as well as selling her own line of clothing through K-Mart.
No one else on the list comes close to her amount. Kaley Cuoco from The Big Bang Theory and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Mariska Hargitay tied for second place after earning $11 million apiece.
Several wonderful actresses were tied for fourth place after making $10 million. Comedian Tina Fey, Melissa McCarthy, Bethenny Frankel and even the Kardashian sisters.
Though Forbes might being a little generous putting them on an actress list.
According to Forbes, Vergara sure knows how to license her name, more than keeping up with the Kardashian sisters. SEARS Brands, K-Mart's parent company, has been more than happy with licensing Vergara, as they court the Hispanic demographic for their brands. Definitely happy enough that the actress got paid a $7 million advance.
