Eva Longoria - Eva Longoria And Tina Fey Top Earners List With $13 Million

Eva Longoria and Tina Fey topped Forbes' 'Highest Paid TV Actresses List' this year, earning $13 million each between May 2010 and May 2011. Longoria, the star of Desperate Housewives, and Fey, best known for her role on '30 Rock', dominated the list earning $3 million more than third place Marcia Cross.
The ten women earned a combined total of $94 million, with the top three earning a combined $33 million. Fey's $13 million derives primarily from '30 Rock', on which she is also head writer and producer but the comedienne also released her first book 'Bossypants' in April which sold 150,000 copies in its first month. Longoria's earnings were boosted by her endorsement deals with L'Oreal and LG. Several of the women on the list star opposite Eva on Abc's Desperate Housewives, which wraps up its eighth and final season this year. Her co-star Marcia Cross earned $10 million, while Felicity Huffman and Terry Hatcher tied for fifth place with $9 million salaries. Elsewhere, 'Law and Order: Svu' star Mariska Hargitay and Csi actress Marg Helgenberger also earned $10 million each. Other actresses to make the list include Courteney Cox, who now stars in Abc's popular sitcom 'Cougar Town' and Julianna Marguiles, who scooped an Emmy Award this year for her turn in 'The Good Wife'.
Longoria recently completed filming the upcoming action-comedy 'The Baytown Disco', while Fey is working on the sixth season of 30 Rock, set to air in early 2012.
