FORBES NAMES OPRAH WINFREY RICHEST SELF-MADE WOMAN IN CALIFORNIA

It’s no secret Oprah Winfrey has a net worth of over $3 billion dollars, placing her #569 on Forbes’ List of the World’s Billionaires. Although she isn’t #1 on this list, Oprah takes the cake as the richest self- made woman in California with a net worth of $3.2 billion dollars.

Oprah has made the Forbes list numerous times on a variety of lists, including one of “The World’s Most Powerful People” in 2010, “The World’s Highest Paid Celebrities” in 2014, and the “Forbes 400 List” in 2015. Oprah has proven a success in every task she attempts; she made a killing in October 2015 when she purchased a 10 percent share of Weight Watchers, which placed her on the board of directors.

Even after Oprah took a $125 million dollar loss in 2011 after the final airing of The Oprah Winfrey Show, she still manages to come out on top, as her OWN Network began raking in the big bucks in 2013. The network’s success is attributed to the collaboration between OWN and Tyler Perry, who produces the hit shows The Haves and The Have Nots and Love Thy Neighbor, which boosted ratings. According to The Bloomberg Report, each show garnered 1.3 million viewers.
