Sofia Vergara Edged Out Kim As Highest Earning Actress In US TV
“Modern Family” actress Sofia Vergara edged out Kim Kardashian as the highest-earning woman in U.S. television, taking in $19 million for the past 12 months on a list released by Forbes.com on Wednesday.
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.”
The 40-year-old actress beat out Kim Kardashian, who came in second, earning an estimated $18 million from her reality TV series, Forbes said.
