LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Bethenny Frankel has beat out Angelina Jolie and supermodel Gisele Bundchen as the top-earning celebrity mom, according to Forbes magazine.
The reality star and “Skinny Girl” reportedly took in $55 million in earnings over the May 2010 - May 2011 period, a number she wouldn’t quite confirm when she spoke to Access Hollywood on Friday.
“There are a lot of numbers being tossed out there,” Bethenny told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson. “To be perfectly honest, I’m not that great at math and I don’t really look at my bank account that much.”
Maybe she doesn’t check it “that much,” but the Bravo star does know what she has and hinted the magazine wasn’t far off.
“Forbes usually gets things at least close to right. I mean, they are Forbes,” she said.
Gisele and Judge Judy Sheindlin tied for second on Forbes’ list with $45 million, author Danielle Steel took fourth with $35 million and tied in fifth place were Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker with $30 million each.
Bethenny may have topped Angelina, but she thinks the lithe brunette has a few other perks that make up for not making the top spot.
“Look, she’s sleeping with Brad Pitt,” Bethenny laughed. “You know what I mean? She wins!”
