Sofia Vergara's got cash to spend. 

Forbes just named the Colombian-born bombshell television's highest-paid actress for a staggering fifth year in a row. Vergara's hefty salary calculates in at $43 million, almost double the amount second place finisher Kaley Cuocoearned at a cool $24.5 mill. 

So how did the 44-year-old successfully increase her profits by $16.5 million over the past year? Surprisingly enough, all dollar signs point not to her starring role on ABC sitcom Modern Family, but instead the various endorsement and licensing deals she's signed on for.

Essentially nothing's off limits for Sofia when it comes to lending her internationally recognized face and namesake to products like furniture, Quaker Oats, dandruff shampoo Head and Shoulders, nurse scrubs and even thyroid medication. Hey, you go girl. 

Following the Big Bang Theory starlet is Mindy Kalingwith $15 million as well as Mariska Hargitay and Ellen Pompeo both earning $14.5 million. 

Rounding out the super-exclusive club of the small screen's wealthiest women is Kerry Washington($13.5 million), Stana Katic($12 million), Priyanka Chopra($11 million), Julianna Margulies($10.5 million) and Julie Bowen($10 million). 

Way to work towards closing the wage gap, ladies.
