Tyra Banks Named Highest-Earning Primetime Woman

Tyra Banks is something fierce!

The model-turned-talk show-host-turned-television mogul has been named prime time's top earning woman in a new poll by Forbes.

America's Next Top Model mama bear reportedly earned $23 million between June 2007 and June 2008. That includes earnings from ANTM, her daytime talk show, and a new multi-year gig as producer of the upcoming CW reality show "Stylista," based in the magazine world.

Last year, Grey's Anatomy's Katherine Heigl had the top spot for the primetime ladies, but she's fallen to No. 3 (even though she's still the top earning actress). So, who's second to Tyra?

Fellow model Heidi Klum!  Her Project Runway success had her bringing in $14 million.

Who said models are just a bunch of pretty faces?

1. Tyra Banks, $23 million
