“Modern Family” actress Sofia Vergara topped the Forbes highest paid TV actresses list. She became the highest-earning woman in U.S. television, taking in $19 million for the past 12 months.
The Colombian-born Vergara took the No. 1 spot thanks to her Emmy Award-winning role on the ABC sitcom, a clothing line, endorsement deals and her partnership role in Latin World Entertainment, an entertainment company that Forbes said “was poised to become a new media powerhouse.”
According to Forbes Vergara surpasses Kim Kardashian, who came in second, earning an estimated $18 million from her reality TV series.
