The American author-television host 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 Ingraham Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Glastonbury Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderingraham - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Laura) and a fashion line called “Laura Ingraham Seduction”.
