Oprah Winfrey is highest paid female Hollywood celeb

Oprah Winfrey No surprise here. Oprah Winfrey has been named Hollywood's highest-paid female star - again. The TV star earned an estimated $165 million between May 2011 and May 2012 thanks to her now-defunct Oprah Winfrey Show, OWN TV network, satellite radio station, production company Harpo and O magazine, figures compiled by Forbes magazine for their Richest Women in Entertainment list. Oprah's fortune is a staggering $107 million more than the second-placed star on the list, newest X Factor judge Britney Spears, who generated $58 million in the time period, $1 million more than Taylor Swift, who was named in third place. Rihanna and Ellen DeGeneres tied for fourth place, each bringing in $53 million, with Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez tying just below them with earnings of $52 million. Rounding out the list are supermodel Gisele Bundchen, Katy Perry and Judge Judy Sheindlin, who all raked in $45 million.
