Tina Fey and Eva Longoria Named Highest-Paid TV Actresses

If you take the funniest woman on television and the sexiest woman on television, what do you get (besides an inferiority complex)? Tina Fey and Eva Longoria, of course! And all their hard work and charms are paying off…big time! Both actresses have earned top honors in Forbes magazine’s list of the small screen’s highest-paid actresses. The TV dynamos each earned $13 million between May 2010 and May 2011, and while they get the majority of their incomes from their highly successful shows (you may have heard of them: 30 Rock and Desperate Housewives), they also collect syndication profits as well. Basically, they’re like the Donald Trump of television.

Longoria’s Housewives co-stars were also high up in the rankings. Marcia Cross ranked third on the list, raking in $10 million, while Felicity Huffman and Teri Hatcher landed in tie for fifth place with $9 million in earnings. Wow, this show pays good money, although these ladies don’t seem that desperate to me. For the full list of Forbes‘ Highest-Paid TV actresses, click here.
