Sofia Vergara Tops The List Of The Best Paid Actresses On Television  February 25, 2015 – 12:01 am

FORBES cover girl Sofia Vergara is on top of the world. The Colombian actress just turned 40 and celebrated with a lavish week-long getaway in Mexico where it’s rumored she became engaged to longtime beau Nick Loeb.

Professionally speaking, her ABC hit, Modern Family, is averaging 12 million viewers in its third season, a slew of endorsement and licensing deals keep paychecks fat and LatinWE, the media company she cofounded in 1996, just had a top-earning year with $27 million in revenues. We estimate Vergara’s earnings between May 2011 and May 2012 at $19 million, making her the top earning actress on U.S. television.

Not bad for a farmer’s daughter from Barranquilla, Colombia.

In Vergara, television has found the cross-over star it’s been waiting for since Desi Arnaz left the airwaves. Her appeal with Hispanics is unrivaled; she has a positive Q Score more than twice that of the average celebrity. And with the ABC smash hit Modern Family, Vergara’s won over American audiences without alienating her Latina roots. For advertisers, the combination is electric. In the past year the actress has signed endorsement deals in English and Spanish that amount to a whopping $12 million. Kmart has gotten behind her clothing line with an advance that will total $7 million by the end of 2012.

The past twelve months have made Vergara the reigning queen of prime time television, out-earning even uber-lucrative reality star Kim Kardashian, who comes in at second place on our list by a scant $1 million. Kardashian, whose family just re-upped their contract with E! for $30 million, kept busy in 2012 with Keeping Up With The Kardashians and keeping up appearances in the wake of her quickie divorce. We estimate Kim earned $18 million between May 2011 and May 2012.

The two actresses have both been tabloid staples over the past twelve months; Kim’s publicly flaunted for her whirlwind romance with rapper Kanye West and Sofia’s personal life made equally big news. But while Kim’s made an art form of toying with the press, for Vergara the experience has become something of a nuisance. Her on-again-off-again boyfriend was accused of some serious philandering in June and the actress found herself a target for paparazzi in New York City. “I might kill one of them, ” she told me conspiratorially on a weekday afternoon perched on the penthouse terrace of the Trump Soho hotel while swarms of photographers crowded the sidewalk below.

But while their conceptions of privacy might be polar opposites, in terms of business strategy Kardashian and Vergara have a lot in common. Both have price-conscious clothing lines at national retailers—Kardashian at SEARS and Vergara at Kmart—although according to sources Vergara got the better deal. Her $7 million advance speaks volumes of Kmart’s interest in the booming Hispanic market.

Both brag major endorsement deals—Kim’s lent her name to diet, beauty and lifestyle brands while Sofia’s face appears in ad campaigns for Diet Pepsi, Burger King and Covergirl. And both actresses are prolific users of social media: Kim’s Twitter feed boasts 15 million followers while Vergara’s 3 million are supplemented by a popular YouTube channel that gives her fans unique insight into her life. A recent behind-the-scenes video of her 40th birthday celebration included footage aboard the Air Mexico flight that flew over 100 guests to Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

The fashion mannequins of America are becoming more voluptuous, their makers swelling their bottoms and chests to keep pace with changing attitudes to female beauty – and the realities of the average American body.
The mannequins, which have been given names such as Goddess and Sex, have become bestsellers in stores such as New York's chic Saks on Fifth Avenue to Chicago's traditionally plainer Marshall Fields.
The name Jennifer Lopez, the Latina singer and actress who famously took out a special insurance policy on her bottom, is invoked in discussions on the mannequins
