Forbes magazine has crowned Sofia Vergara as television’s top earning actress for 2013. She bagged $19 million for her role as the vivacious Colombian born Gloria Pritchett of ABC’s Modern Family. Sofia leads the pack by no small margin, the number two spot shared by The Big Bang Theory‘s Kaley Cuoco and Mariska Hargity of Law and Order are at a mere $11 million each. The crowded number three spot composed of Grey’s Anatomy’s Ellen Pompeo, The Kardasians, Tina Fey of 30 Rock, host Bethenny Frankel and Melissa McCarthy of Mike and Molly each have $10 million paychecks.
Vergara’s business savvy does not end with her acting contract though. Due to her massive appeal in both the English and Spanish speaking population, she has landed her fair share of endorsements. Diet Pepsi, Burger King and Covergirl are just some of the major companies that have signed her on as a spokesperson. In addition, she also has a thriving Kmart-based clothing and home goods line. All in all including the earnings for her media marketing conglomerate Latin World entertainment, her earnings totaled $30 million last year.
