So close.  Kim Kardashian was nudged out of the number-one spot on Forbes’s list of the highest paid actresses on TV by $1 million. Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara earned the top slot with her role on the hit comedy, as well as endorsement deals with CoverGirl and Diet Pepsi.

So how much moolah did the Colombian beauty make in 2012? About $19 million, according to Forbes. That means Kimmie K earned $18 million, while the number-three actress, Eva Longoria, came in at $15 million. A couple other Kardashians, as well as Eva’s Desperate Housewives co-stars, also made the list.
