Oprah Tops List of Hollywood's Highest Paid Women

Discovery Communications, Inc.(LOS ANGELES) -- In case you need reminding, Oprah Winfrey is a very rich woman.

She's so rich, in fact, that she tops a new Forbes magazine list of "Hollywood’s Highest-Paid Women." She earned an estimated 165 million dollars between May 2011 and May 2012.

Oprah ended her talk show over a year ago, but she remains involved in the TV business with her cable network, OWN, and her production company, Harpo, which is responsible for Dr. Phil McGraw, Rachael Ray and Dr. Oz's talk shows.

Britney Spears ranks second on the list, with 58 million dollars earned. That total does not include her reported 15-million-dollar salary for The X Factor, since she signed her deal towards the end of the timetable set by Forbes for its list.

Here is Forbes' list of "Hollywood’s Highest-Paid Women":

1. Oprah Winfrey, $165 million.
2. Britney Spears, $58 million.
3. Taylor Swift, $57 million.
4. Ellen DeGeneres, $53 million.
5. Rihanna, $53 million.
6. Lady Gaga, $52 million.
7. Jennifer Lopez, $52 million.
8. Gisele Bundchen, $45 million.
9. Katy Perry, $45 million.
10. Judge Judy Sheindlin, $45 million.
