Oprah Winfrey – Est. $3.5 billion

Oprah Winfrey has gone back to TV since she decided to return from OWN, which put her back to the Celebrity 100, which records earnings of people who have been on TV over the last year. Winfrey became successful almost overnight with the release of The Oprah Winfrey Show in the year 1984. The show became an unprecedented success as it dealt with varied subject matters. Winfrey has been recognized as the first TV talk show pioneer.

Besides founding the company, she also established a profitable production firm known as Harpo Productions and the TV network known as The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). In 2015, Winfrey became a member of the board of directors of Weight Watchers, for which she received compensation of $43.5 million. Her net is around $3.5 billion, and we fully expect this number to go up given all her investments.
