Forbes just released its list of highest paid women in entertainment and two Jews have cracked the top 10 — Bethenny Frankel of Real Housewives fame and Judge Judy Sheindlin.

Frankel isn’t raking in the big bucks due to her Bravo paycheck. She comes in at number four on the list because of her Skinny Girl brand of drinks.

Judge Judy made $45 million from her television program, which used to regularly beat Oprah (predictably the top placeholder) in the ratings before the Queen of Daytime retired from her gig. With Oprah gone, Judge Judy will be undoubtedly be the new queen of daytime TV.
