Bethenny Frankel Dishes Being A Top-Earning Celebrity Mom!

September 10, 2011 09:27 AM by Kristin Watson

Celebrity moms: they’re just like the rest of us — except for the fact that they earn mega-cash. Just ask Bethenny Frankel who Forbes named top-earning celebrity mom for raking in $55 million (a number she won’t confirm) from May 2010-May 2011. She talked to Access Hollywood on Friday about the numbers-game and you’d be surprised by what she said. Read on for the details…

Forbes knows money and they crowned Bravo star, Bethenny Frankel, the top-earning celebrity mom over mommies like Angelina Jolie and supermodel Gisel Bundchen.

So, what does the former Real Housewives of New York City star and Skinny Dipping author think of the honor?

She told Access Hollywood on Sept. 9,”There are a lot of numbers being tossed out there. To be perfectly honest, I’m not that great at math and I don’t really look at my bank account that much.”

Come on, she’s fabulously dressed and isn’t a schmuck when it comes to her business — she knows what she’s worth.”Forbes usually gets things at least close to right. I mean, they are Forbes,” she joked.

Gisele Bundchen and Judge Judy Sheindlin took Forbes’ second spot on the list with $45 million and author Danielle Steel landed in fourth with $35 million. Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker tied with $30 million each.

Really, Angelina Jolie came in fifth place? “Look, she’s sleeping with Brad Pitt,” Bethenny kidded, “you know what I mean? She wins!”

It was just revealed the mommy with with lots of money has just signed on to pen the fictional book, Skinny Dipping. Does she really need anymore cash?

    Seriously, an ugly pug like this think Angelina should be so fortunate that she has Brad instead of cash! Angie has more than Brad, a beautiful face that is out of this world, fame – globally known for her acting and humanitarian work and cutest kids, nobody knows this woman outside USA. She is so full of herself claiming that she doesn’t know her bank balance!

    Oh! What a wonderful comment Marilyn! I agree with you 100%. Not only is she an ugly pug, but she is an arrogant, rude, obnoxious, classless hag. I cannot stand her. There is never any graciousness, humility or warmth to this greedy mongrel.

    I loved Bethanny on Real Housewives of NY but on her own show, she has become a tad annoying, it is all about herself and there isn’t enough of a story line and she tries to create too much drama. But she deserves her success, having worked hard for it, and not marrying rich husbands and pretending to do business (read – Jill Zarin and her husband’s fabric store).

    That’s awesome; she’s incredible. Jill Zarin and her flying monkey rob shuter must be eating themselves alive with jillousy!
