This morning I read about how Simon Cowell is the worlds 3rd richest TV star. A little over 10 years ago, America had no idea who this white t-shirt wearing Brit was. In 2010, Simon made 45 million dollars (worldwide). He was beaten by Jerry Seinfeld (60 million) and, of course, Oprah. The daytime queen made 260 million (that's a quarter of a billion in one year!).

It made me think, where does Oprah stack up next to Hollywood celebritys and music icons. WE can find out thanks to FORBES.COM
