Sofia Vergara Named TV's Highest Earning Woman
Sofia Vergara is having a great year -- not only is she a shoo-in for a second consecutive Emmy nomination on Thursday, but she reportedly celebrated her 40th birthday by getting engaged to longtime boyfriend Nick Loeb and was just named The Highest Earning Woman on Television by Forbes Magazine!
According to the money mag, the Modern Family star raked in $19 million in 2011 and $12 million of that came from endorsement deals alone. Forbes cites her cross-cultural appeal as the driving factor behind her success, saying that she's the biggest crossover star Latin America has seen in years. And with that demographic responsible for over $1 trillion in profits last year alone, it's clear this market is demanding your attention.
"The truth is out that we're in this country and we're taking over," Sofia told Forbes. "To see people paying attention to the cultural changes ... is fantastic."
