Sofia Vergara Is Highest-Paid TV Actress

Share |

Forbes magazine says that Sofia Vergara is the highest paid woman on television. The Colombian bombshell made $ 19 million over the past 12 months! Yep, definitely her clothing line at K-Mart, endorsement deals, and her role in super popular sitcom Modern Family brought her multi-million salary. But she is not doing it alone – for the past 16 years, Sofia and her business partner, Luis Balaguer, have built a Miami licensing, marketing, production and new-media powerhouse labelled Latin World Entertainment.

Sofia Vergara has been named the highest-paid actress on TV!

Forbes reports that the 2011 firm revenue alone was at $27 million. The clients include Disney and Paramount! Also the duo’s YouTube channel, called NuevOn, that sold out inventory to Procter & Gamble through 2013 is pretty beneficial. Vergara said to Forbes:

The truth is out that we’re in this country and we’re taking over.To see people paying ­attention to the cultural changes that Luis and I have seen coming for a long time is fantastic.”

Moreover, Vergara is the face of Diet Pepsi – and that’s pretty good for her financial state! The director of marketing for Diet Pepsi, told Forbes:

Because they have the relationship with a tremendous amount of talent within the Latin space, they’ve become a comprehensive partner that allows us to achieve a scale in the Hispanic market.”

Kmart also paid Vergara a $ 7 million advance for her clothing line, which tells a lot about Kmart’s interest to reach the Hispanic market.

Sofia is sure enjoying her success, as she flew with her family and friends, including her Modern Family co-stars, to celebrate her 40th birthday to Mexico.

But don’t be fooled by her immense success – Vergara had humble beginnings and worked her way up to get to where she is. In 1995, Vergara traveled from Colombia to host Univision’s Fuera de Serie, and from then on began her long career in the States. Vergara says:

In the 1990s there was a lot of Hispanic talent working for Univision but ­nobody to represent us.”

Plus, Vergara had a hard time finding a manager, so she paid an intern to help her out while she searched for a representative. But, in 1996, Vergara met veteran talent-manager Balaguer and their long-term business partnership began. Vergara told Forbes with a big smile.

I can’t think of anyone on U.S. television with such a thick accent since Ricky Ricardo.”
