Bethenny Frankel Tops List of Highest Paid Celebrity Moms

The Skinnygirl wins again.

Forbes may have listed reality TV darling Bethenny Frankel as the the top-earning celebrity mother for her haul of $55 million from May 2010 – May 2011, but if you ask the entrepreneur and mom to 1-year-old daughter, Bryn, there’s another mama on the list who’s a lot better off.

When asked by Access Hollywood‘s Shaun Robinson how she managed to outrank actress Angelina Jolie, Bethenny answered, “Look, she’s sleeping with Brad Pitt…she wins.”

Sorry Jason!

Which of your other fave celebrity moms made the list?

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen and Judge Judy Sheindlin tied for second, followed by bestselling author Danielle Steel, Angelina Jolie, Sarah Jessica Parker, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Lopez, author Janet Evanovich, and Pink.

    Sorry for the ignorance, but as a non-american person, what does she do to earn so much money?

    @ Mia…Bethenny Frankel is a dysfunctional mess of a woman who makes her money by being a con artist. She cons very young impressionable young woman into buying her useless, crappy products that she herself has not created. Her skill is being an aggressive, manipulative, rude, crass, outspoken big-mouth who has an opinion on everything She pretends she is so into her fans and their welfare when all she cares about is how much money she could rake in on their backs; which in fact she is doing quite well.

    Her arrogance, ungrateful nature, lack of humility, graciousness and phony smile, enhances the cold, calculating, greedy individual she comes across as, at least to me.

    Her books are clearly written by ghostwriters. She won’t be writing any fiction books; her ghostwriter will be writing them and just like everything else she will take credit for their work. I wouldn’t mind so much about other people doing the work for her, but her personality is so grating and obnoxious that it’s hard for me to root for someone like that. As you can see, I’m not partial to her….

    Well said, girlfriend!

    Thanks for the explanation!
    It’s ridiculous the amount of money someone like that makes while people doing real work and important things earns so little…

      She created an alcoholic beverage called “Skinny Girl Margarita” and sold it to a company for $55 million. That’s how she made the top of the list. It comes in that bottle she is holding in the picture.

    @Mia NOT TRUE. she’s obnoxious and raunchy, yes. But her products ARE good ideas. You cant deny that. These rude people are just jealous. Why is it so hard to just be happy for someone’s success these days?

      I’m not jealous of her or her money. Trust me.

    I barely knew who she was but bought a bottle of her skinnygirl margarita. Truly awful stuff! Tasted like chemicals. I ended up pouring the contents down the drain. Don’t waste your money.

    I think Bethenny is hysterical.

    I take offense to her being called a “celebrity.” Lame!

    It’s amazing to me the amount of venom a person can spew at someone they don’t even know. Who cares? That’s an awful lot of angry words to write if you’re not projecting some kind of issues onto her, jealousy or whathaveyou. Forget taking it as a personal insult that the product didn’t live up to your expectations and just don’t ever buy it again. Live and let live.
