In 2011 it looked like the actress’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top.

People With Money’s factors
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The American actress-producer has an estimated net worth of $245 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Barr Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Salt Lake City Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbarr - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Roseanne) and a fashion line called “Roseanne Barr Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Roseanne fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
