Kim Kardashian no more highest paid TV actress

Forbes comes out with a list of best paid actresses on television; Sofia Vergara tops the list

Forbes rolled out list of highest-earning actresses on television. 

While most of the actresses don't surprise on the full list of 20, there are a significant amount of reality TV stars who did make the cut.
Sofia Vergara topped the list with her many film roles and television prowess on the award-sweeping "Modern Family."
The list filled with Kardashians, "Desperate Housewives," and a three-way tie for eighth place.

"The Modern Family" star wasn't only starring on the small screen for the past year. Vergara had roles in "The Three Stooges," "New Year's Eve," "Happy Feet Two," and "The Smurfs."
She also launched a KMart clothing line, had her face plastered over NYC and on television in Diet Pepsi campaigns (she also worked with Cover Girl, Burger King, State Farm, and Comcast).

Kim Kardashian: $18 million

The past twelve months have made Vergara the reigning queen of prime time television, out-earning even uber-lucrative reality star Kim Kardashian, who comes in at second place.

Kim Kardashian just missed out on the top spot of Forbes' list. 

It's been a busy year with Kim between a four-hour fairytale wedding on E!, which led to a quicky, much-publicized divorce (63 magazines and counting).

Like Khloe, she signed the $30 million deal for three more seasons of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," worked on clothing line "Kardashian Kollection," and opened boutique DASH. The reality star also launched a signature perfume.
Her new relationship with Kanye West gets its fair share of press as well.

Eva Longoria (BANG)

Eva Longoria: $15 million

If one housewife tops the list, there must be another. Longoria tops the list with an estimated $375,000 per episode.
Life after "Desperate Housewives" sees Longoria in Pepsi and L'Oreal Paris ads, producing NBC's Ready For Love." The actress has also worked on a new pilot picked up by Lifetime, "Devious Maids."

Bethenny Frankel: $12 million

'The Bravo' reality star is doing all right.

Frankel expanded on her successful Skinnygirl Cocktail line, wrote a novel, "Skinnydipping," and is testing the waters on Fox-affiliated daytime talk show, "Bethenny."

Khloe Kardashian Odom

It's no surprise to see one of the Kardashians to make the top ten list.

Khloe has a lot going on between "Khloe & Lamar," signing a $30 million deal for three more seasons of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," the Kardashian Kollection Sears clothing line, family boutique, DASH, and the Kardashian Khaos store in Las Vegas' Mirage.
Khloe also hosted a local radio show while living in Houston.
