Forbes recently released their list of the 100 richest self-made American women.
These 100 hard-working women are executives, singers, actresses, athletes, entertainers, entrepreneurs, and more. Altogether, they’re worth a collective $90 billion. While they live all over America, 45 of them in California alone.
Familiar Faces New to the List
This year Rihanna and Kris Jenner join the elite list.
Rihanna is listed at number 33 and worth $600 million. Not only is she the richest female musician, but she also owns the Fenty Beauty cosmetics line and the Savage x Fenty lingerie line (Fenty is Rihanna’s last name). Not bad for being only 32-years-old!
Kris Jenner just made the list, coming in at number 92, with her net worth of $190 million. The “momager” takes 10% of what the Kardashian-Jenner family earns, including from her daughters’ deals with cosmetic company Coty. Jenner also makes her own income by producing and participating in KUWTK.
The Queen of the List
The wealthiest, self-made woman in America — for three years running — is Diane Hendricks. Now her job isn’t glamorous — Hendricks and her husband founded ABC Supply, one of the largest U.S. wholesale distributors of roofing, siding, and windows. But hey, she can enjoy her wealth without being bothered by paparazzi and tabloids!
