Former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel hasn’t slowed down one bit since leaving the show. In fact, her post-RHONY activities have landed her on Forbes’ list of TV’s highest-paid actresses!

Thanks to her book Skinnydipping, her reality show Bethenny Ever After – which reportedly earns about one million viewers a week – and her new talk show Bethenny, Bethenny’s made an estimated $12 million in the past year. Oh, and let’s not forget her SkinnyGirl empire!

Bethenny, of course, qualifies as a TV actress thanks to her past work on Hollywood Hills 90028 and other TV films, but she’s also a graduate of the National Gourmet Culinary Institute. One thing’s for sure, she makes entrepreneurship look great!
