One of Forbes annuals list is the valuation of the top earning black celebrities. O dot has the number one spot because between June 2006 and June 2007, Winfrey, 54, pocketed $260 million. That astonishing salary–it works out to some $712,000 a day–crowns her not just the nation’s top-earning African-American, but also the highest-paid entertainer in Tinseltown, black or white. Check out the top ten list right herre…

1. Oprah Winfrey $260 million
2. Tiger Woods $100 million
3. Jay-Z $83 million
4. 50 Cent $33 million
5. Kobe Bryant $33 million
6. Shaquille O’Neal $32 million
7. Michael Jordan $31 million
8. Will Smith $31 million
9. Beyonce $27 million
10. LeBron James $27 million

I don’t know if I necessarily can believe this list allt he way, because Magic Johnson should be somewhere in here. Plus, didn’t fiddy make like $100 off of that vitamin water deal. I think that came after the cut off date, so next year will probably look very different. One thing that will remain the same though, Oprah at number 1

Okay so Oprah is a long way from roughing up Harpo and smokin’ that crack. It has been announced that she and the Discovery Channel will be teaming up to create her own cable channel that will be called OWN, taken from the Oprah Winfrey Network. Yeop, you read that correctly she now has her own channel. It seems like the next logical step though; she has dominated the talk show game ever since she made it rain on Phil Donohue. Okay, maybe he was just tired of doing the show, but whatever, she has been on top for about a decade. She is the first African American female billionaire, with a magazine named after her. She has spawned the careers and single handedly made best selling authors, celebrity chef’s, and talk show host out of nobodies, and she started an academy for girls in Africa funded with $40m out of her own pocket. Let’s see if she can help Obama become the first black president. If she can, um…she is a beast for reals
