25 Rich Guys With Even Richer Wives

Money Magazine 25 Rich Guys With Even Richer Wives By SERGEI KLEBNIKOV July 11, 2017 Rich guys are a dime a dozen these days—according to Forbes, 87 of the 100 richest Americans are male. But in some instances, they rank a distant second behind their spouses. Using calculations from Celebritynetworth.com, MONEY selected well-known celebrity couples in which the wives out-earn their husbands. The site uses a variety of sources to come up with a celebrity’s total value of assets held, including film or TV salaries, business investments, sponsorships, real estate deals, as well as any liabilities that can be found, before taking out a final estimate for taxes. “Women as an entertainment force or getting involved in business is becoming less rare, and this trend will continue,” says Brian Warner, founder and CEO of Celebritynetworth.com. “As more stories come out, they spawn hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs and actresses who are earning way more.” Take a look below at the breakdown of rich guys… who have even richer wives.  

Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady

Ron Galella—WireImage/Getty Images Year Married: 2009 Gisele Bündchen Net Worth: $360 Million Tom Brady Net Worth: $180 Million Brazilian supermodel and former Victoria’s Secret Angel Gisele Bündchen has walked catwalks and graced magazine covers across the globe over the span of her modeling career. Her non-apparel advertising campaigns include Nivea, Volkswagons do Brazil, and Apple Inc., among others. Also a successful businesswoman, she has launched her own line of designer sandals and also owns the Brazilian hotel Palladium Executive. Her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, has netted total cash earnings of almost $200 million, and his current annual salary is approximately $20.5 million. He recently signed a $41 million contract extension with the Patriots last season, which included a $28 million signing bonus. Much of his wealth is thanks to a wide variety of endorsement deals with brands such as Under Armour, Tag Heuer, UGG, and most recently signed this year: Aston Martin.  

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Jamie McCarthy—Getty Images/Yeezy Season 4 Year Married: 2014 Kim Kardashian Net Worth: $175 Million Kanye West Net Worth: $160 Million After rising to prominence on the reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim has seen her fame skyrocket over the last decade. As one of the most famous celebrities on the planet today and a media mogul, much of her wealth derives from her reality television salary, profits from mobile phone games, and expanding retail empire, not to mention various endorsements and appearance fees. Earning $45.5 million before taxes in the last year alone, Kim’s income was bolstered by her Kimoji app – which she has expanded into a line of Kim-based merchandise, Instagram sponsorships, a lipstick collection with Kylie Cosmetics, and a new kids clothing line launched with husband Kanye West. Her massively popular Kim Kardashian: Hollywood cellphone game with Glu Mobile also continues to make big bucks, and has generated nearly $200 million in revenue since June 2014. Kim recently announced the launch of her own makeup line, KKW Beauty. With well over 32 million albums sold and 21 Grammy awards to his name, Kanye West is one of the most influential names in the music industry. His most recent release last year, The Life of Pablo, became his eighth consecutive album to go platinum, and the first ever streaming-only record to do so. West is also a seasoned businessman – prior to joining forces with Adidas, Kanye created a successful line of Nike Air Yeezy sneakers. He has since designed his own fashion collection: Yeezy, which debuted at New York Fashion Week in 2015 and his success as a fashion designer has earned him a new deal with Adidas in 2016, worth substantially more than the original endorsement signed for $10 million.

Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth

But it’s likely her production company Pacific Standard that has made her the most money — since 2012, it has produced hits such as Gone Girl (2014), Wild, Hot Pursuit (2015), and currently, HBO’s Big Little Lies. Witherspoon is married to Jim Toth, co-head of motion picture talent at Creative Artists Agency (CAA) in Los Angeles. Toth has built up his wealth by representing some of the leading actors and actresses in Hollywood like Matthew McConaughey, Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson.

Celebrities Hair the Call of Charity

April 2, 2008 by Tim Saunders When most people think of Ken Paves, they think of big hair. The “hairstylist of the stars”, dubbed by the world’s media as the “hottest hairdresser in Hollywood”, is the man responsible for taming the locks of celebrities such as Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria, and many more of the most beautiful people on the planet. But now the stylist with the golden scissors has moved from big hair to big give with a new online auction he has organized through the Kompolt Online Auction Agency. Inspired by the good deeds being achieved by the hit series “Oprah’s Big Give”, Paves has teamed up with a host of his celebrity friends to launch what could be the hottest auction this year, with all proceeds going to the EB Medical Research Foundation. So if it is once-in-a-lifetime celebrity items and experiences you want, hold on to your toupées and read on. The auction, which can be accessed through eBay, runs until April 7, and features items from stars such as Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Sharon Stone, Marcia Cross, Bette Midler, and the Eagles. There are signed posters from Jessica Simpson, Eva Longoria, Carmen Electra, and John Travolta, and enough autographed photographs to cover the inside of even the biggest make-up trailer, including snaps from Courteney Cox, Jewel, and Christina Aguilera. And if it is clothes you are after, why not bid on a T-shirt signed by David Arquette, Ashlee Simpson, or Pete Wentz, a soccer jersey autographed by David Beckham, or slip into Victoria Beckham‘s jeans. If that is not enough to send shivers of anticipation through any star-hungry bidder, there is also the opportunity to snap up concert tickets – including meet-and-greets – to shows by Duran Duran and Céline Dion, as well as the chance to hang out with Ashlee Simpson and to visit the set of Scrubs with Donald Faison. There is even the opportunity to take a trip to Ken Paves’ salon with Eva Longoria. Paves, who is also a spokesperson for Operation Smile, has chosen the EB Medical Research Foundation to recieve 100% of the proceeds from the auction. The EBMRF is dedicated to increasing awareness of Epidermolysis Bullosa, a condition that affects the skin and can cause painful wounds, similar to burns, to form over up to 75% of a child’s body. Courteney Cox and David Arquette recently pledged to raise $1 million for the foundation. More information about the disease, as well as the opportunity to purchase a special necklace designed by Cox and Arquette, can be found at www.ebkids.org.

Bette Is Woman, Hear Her Roar!

Hear Them Roar BY ANGELA GAIMARI | TUESDAY, APRIL 13, 2010 3:09 PM ET Good Housekeeping celebrates 125 years of womankind. Despite what the name suggests, 125-year-old Good Housekeeping magazine does not keep its readers under house arrest, armed only with bucket and mop. A testament to that: last night’s gathering of dynamic women celebrating the magazine and the female role models who’ve shaped our world. From emcee Brooke Shields and The Price of Beauty host Jessica Simpson, Dr. Ruth and nonagenarian former Cosmo editrix Helen Gurley Brown and the three M’s — Martha Stewart, Miss Piggy and That Girl, Marlo Thomas — women from all spheres of influence came together for a star-studded evening. Also in attendance at the “Shine On” performance at New York’s City Center theater were Bette Midler, Candice Bergen, Hilary Duff, and Kristen Bell. Ticket sales benefited the National Women’s History Museum: the first permanent exhibit highlighting the women who changed the world, breaking ground in the next five years near the National Mall in Washington, D.C. What’s on the magazine’s pages has certainly changed over the years to suit the way women live now. In other words, today’s Good Housekeeping woman is not spending her days polishing the silver. “Today, our reader is basically a woman who has too much to do,” said Good Housekeeping Editor-in-Chief Rosemary Ellis. “She loves her home but she’s not a slave to it. In fact, now the magazine opens with a section called Good (Enough) Housekeeping. It’s not about, ‘Is your bathroom spotless? Is your furniture dusted?’ Who cares? The point is, you want to have a home that’s a sanctuary and we help you figure out the quick and easy ways to do that so you can enjoy the rest of your life.” And let’s not forget that the magazine served as a sounding board for female writers ranging from Betty Friedan (whose Feminine Mystique began as a 1955 article published in the mag) to attendee Nora Ephron, who acknowledged first-wave feminist Susan B. Anthony. “She changed the world,” said Ephron. “Because of her, we can vote, we have custody rights to our children, which we did not have, we can own property, and — my personal favorite — we can get a divorce.” Also in praise of Anthony was Meryl Streep, who read a classic speech from the suffragette, but not before acknowledging the pains her subject went through to fight for civil liberty, back in the days when women were to be seen and not heard. “It’s hard to speak in public. It really is,” said the gorgeously emotive Streep, sheepishly. “And it was excruciating for Susan B. Anthony. She was a person who had one eye that went like this [crosses eyes], and she was tall and rawboned and what they called, charitably, a ‘handsome’ woman. She was not a woman who was going to get a husband real quick, and she didn’t.” But the end-result of her labors brought us all to the theater we were sitting at Monday night — to a place where the groundwork is laid to foster change in every arena from politics to art to celebrity. The night ended with a little number by Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin (“Respect”, naturally). “In ten years of doing Murphy Brown, there’s one moment that stands out way above all others,” recalled Candice Bergen. “It was by far the most electrifying and that would be when I shared a piano bench with Aretha Franklin and screeched along with her to ‘Natural Woman.’ Nothing else came close in either thrill nor terror.” Reblog this post [with Zemanta]
