Summary of story from AAJ News, October 7, 2011

Oprah Winfrey has topped Forbes magazine’s annual Hollywood’s Highest-Earning Women list, just two months after Lady Gaga replaced the TV icon as the top of the publication’s 100 Most Powerful Women.

With an estimated $290 million haul from May 2010 to May 2011, Oprah has earned almost $200 million more than Lady Gaga, who comes in a distant second.

Also making the top 10: Bethenny Frankel, Gisele Bundchen, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Beyonce, and author Danielle Steel.

The 57-year-old media mogul quit her successful chat show earlier this year to focus on running her own network.
