Oprah winfrey and lady gaga are the highest paid women in Entertainment


      The former queen of daytime talk tops our list of Hollywood’s Highest-Earning Women with $290 million in earnings between May 2010 and May 2011. Winfrey is worth $2.7 billion, by our estimation, ranking her 139th on our list of the 400 richest people in America.
  
     Lady Gaga was a distant second with $90 million in gross earnings, followed by Frankel with $55 million. Frankel, who launched her own diet and lifestyle brand, sold her Skinnygirl Margarita cocktail mix for an estimated $100 million and has been expanding her brand, which will soon include food, supplements and a possible talk show.
Four women, model Gisele Bundchen, a singer Taylor Swift, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and Judge Judy Sheindlin, each earned $45 million last year and tied for fourth place.
