  2. Interesting! :nuts:
     
  3. #10 and #12 shouldn't even be on the list, IMO, but what do I know.:shrugs:
     
  4. ^why not?
     
  5. Both are overpaid for their talent (or lack there of), IMO. But kudos to both for making the list.
     
  6. Must be nice, must be nice!
     

  7. What makes you think singers like Madonna and JLo have more talent than Britney Spears? It takes special talent to have such a fan base.
     
  8. Alrighty, then ...
     
  9. Judge Judy is worth $95 million?:shocked:
     
  10. ^^^Judge Judy signed a 4 year contract for $100 million! That's what gets her on the list.

    Maybe some are better money managers than others or have better financial advice. I'm surprised Janet Jackson is that high. Jennifer Aniston was on one of the most popular, longest-running sitcoms ever; that translates into a lot of money.
     
  11. Madonna writes her own songs. Britney and Lopez do not. That's really where the talent and money lie. :yes:
     
  12. Madonna is FAR more talented than Brit IMHO:yes:

    Irene, gotcha:yes:
     
  13. What????? No Paris???????
     
  14. britney is probably still on there for her perfumes...i've read that having a successful scent brings in tons of money, more than music, films, ect.
    brit has 3

    this might even be the case with jlo, although she also has her clothing & some recent film work

    brit has had the number one selling perfume for awhile now so she had to have made tons of her money from that

    it probably might seem strange to see her on there bc she hasen't put out a song for a few years now
     
  15. I won't knock any of them - its great to see a list like this where women are making it happen for themselves.
