The Columbian-born beauty has also branched out into fashion and production to boost her income. Not only does she have a Kmart clothing deal but she also has endorsements with top brands including Pepsi.

Other women who made the top ten included Eva Longoria and Felicity Huffman from Desperate Housewives which ended earlier this year.
