Sofia Vergara has been named the highest-paid actress on TV for a second straight year.
The Modern Family star earned a whopping $30 million from June, 2012 to June, 2013, according to Forbes magazine, thanks to her TV appearances and endorsement deals.
Her fortune more than doubles second placed Kaley Cuoco and Mariska Hargitay, who both scored $11 million thanks largely to their roles in The Big Bang Theory and Law & Order: SVU, respectively.
Tina Fey, former reality TV star Bethenny Frankel, the Kardashian sisters, Melissa McCarthy and Ellen Pompeo all tied for fourth place on the new rich list with $10 million.
A table read for Modern Family had to be canceled after Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Ty Burrell filed suit against TV studio bosses in a dispute over their contracts.
The show’s adult stars claim their current longterm deals with executives at 20th Century Fox TV are in violation of California labor laws, which state personal service contracts can last no longer than seven years.
They are asking a judge to declare their prior agreements null and void, allowing them to renegotiate fresh contracts with increased salaries.
The main castmembers, who are said to have made $60,000 each per episode for season three, reportedly rejected TV producers’ recent offer of $150,000 each per episode and they are seeking a considerable increase in pay. They are also asking for more freedom to take on non-Modern Family work, an option which is said to be seriously limited in their current contracts.
A planned table read for the first taping of the upcoming fourth season had to be canceled on July 24th as a result of the legal wrangle. The lawsuits were filed in Los Angeles.
The show’s other adult star, Ed O’Neill, is believed to be in a different salary level than his co-stars, reportedly banking more than $100,000-per-episode. However he is also reportedly unhappy with the studio’s latest offer and Entertainment Weeklyreports he will also join the suit.
Actress Sofia Vergara has joined the cast of the hit comedyFamily Guy.
The Modern Family star, who was recently crowned the highest-paid actress on television by editors at Forbesmagazine, is adding to her resume by signing up to guest star as lead character Peter Griffin’s fantasy love interest.
Vergara’s episode will air during the upcoming 11th season, which is set to premiere on September 30 and feature a number of guest appearances by Johnny Depp, Ryan Reynolds and Twilight star Kellan Lutz.
Vergara is quickly becoming one of the most highly-sought after stars on TV – she will also voice the role of Tia Sofia during a hip-hop-themed episode of animated program The Cleveland Show this fall, according to EW.com.
