Longoria, Fey, Dominate Rich List With $13 Million


Eva Longoria and Tina Fey dominate this year's female rich list, with Forbes estimating they each earned $13 million between May 2010 and May 2011. The actresses finished joint 1st in the 'Highest Paid TV Actresses List'.
Longoria's fortune is partly attributed to her salary for 'Desperate Housewives', but also from her numerous endorsement deals which include LG and L'Oreal. Fey earns several million as the head writer, producer and star of the award winning sitcom '30 Rock', however, she also released her first book in April, which sold 150,000 copies in its first month. Desperate Housewives, which wraps up its eighth and final season this year, dominated the list with several of its stars making the top ten. Marcia Cross, who plays the neurotic Bree Van de Kamp, finished in third place with estimated earnings of $10 million. Felicity Huffman and Terry Hatcher tied for fifth place with $9 million salaries. Other actresses to make the list include Courteney Cox, who now stars in Abc's popular sitcom 'Cougar Town' and EMMY AWARD winner Julianna Marguiles, best known for her turn in 'The Good Wife'.
Longoria filed for divorce from her husband, Tony Parker, in November 2010. The actress, who requested her maiden name be restored, also sought spousal support. The couple had signed a prenuptial agreement before their wedding in 2007.
