Tina Fey and Eva Longoria Are The Highest Paid Women in Television

Last week, Forbes listed their highest paid men in all of entertainment.  Today, we have a list of the highest paid TV actresses, and not surprisingly, the women who tops that list are Ms. “30 Rock” herself and a Desperate Housewife!

According to MSNBC, Tina Fey and Eva Longoria tied for the number one spot, earning both $13 Million between May 2010 and May 2011.

In addition to starring on the hit NBC show “30 Rock”, Fey is also the producer and head writer. As for Longoria, besides the final season of “Desperate Housewives” underway, she has lucrative endorsement deals with L’Oreal and LG.

Amusingly enough, all three of Longoria’s “Desperate Housewives” costars are right behind her.  Marcia Cross ranks third with $10 million and Felicity Huffman and Terry Hatcher tie for fifth with $9 million each.

But don’t worry…the entire list isn’t monopolized by Housewives.  “Law and Order: SVU” star Mariska Hargitay and “CSI” star Marg Helgenberger both tied for third with an estimated $10 million.
