Judge Judy who cracks the whip on her show during the week has become the World's Highest-Paid TV Host according to Entertainment Weekly!
This comes from a list from Forbes. Apparently before taxes last year, Judge Judy earned $147 million! WOW!
"Shiendlin majorly ramped up her earnings by selling the rights to the Judge Judy library (consisting of 5,200 episodes) to CBS for $100 million. That sale more than tripled her annual earnings, according to Forbes. She normally rakes in $47 million from her duties as Judge Judy host and a producer of Hot Bench."
Who is behind her on that list?
2. Ellen Degeneres
3. Dr Phil
4. Ryan Seacrest
5. Steve Harvey
Kind of interesting huh?! The things I'd do with that money!
