Forbes has released their annual list of the highest paid TV actresses and 'Wives' of every ilk are still top dogs.
The Good Wife star and recent Emmy winner Julianna Margulies cracked the top 10 thanks to her $6 million year (expect that number to rise drastically on 2011's list), while all four of ABC's Desperate Housewives ranked in the top ten.
Eva Longoria's $13 million 2010 haul put her atop Marcia Cross ($10 mill), Teri Hatcher and Felicity Huffman, who each brought in around $9 mill apiece according to the money mag.
Tying with Eva for the number one spot is 30 Rock's Tina Fey, who brought in $13 million in 2010 thanks to her show and book, Bossypants. The list is rounded out with lots of familiar faces -- CSI's Marg Helgenberger ($10 mill), Law & Order: SVU's Mariska Hargitay ($10 mill) and Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo ($7 mill) all made repeat appearances.
But with many of these shows coming to an end, or the ladies approaching the end of their tenures, expect plenty of fresh entries next year to join newbie Courteney Cox, who earned $7 million thanks to Cougar Town.
