The Canadian actress has an estimated net worth of $215 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 Wong Burger” chain) in Ottawa, a Football Team (the “Scarborough Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderwong - Canada), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Ellen) and a fashion line called “Ellen Wong Seduction”.
