Oprah Makes 385 Million A Year

Some things are too massive for me to comprehend, like space or Prince Fielder. So when I heard this, I couldn’t really wrap my head around it:

Usmagazine reports Oprah Winfrey earns a whopping $385 million a year.

If Oprah deserves that much money, that would mean she’s roughly 7500 times more valuable than me. Hmm, yeah, that pretty much makes sense. Okay, but fine, maybe Oprah is worth that much, but the article also says this:

Kyra Sedgwick takes home $275,000 per episode of TNT’s The Closer, making her top- earning actress on a cable network drama.

First of all, I’m pretty sure The Closer isn’t even a real show, just a promo TNT runs to give you a breather between back to back airings of The Shawshank Redemption. The only way that paycheck is justified is if they’re giving her 50 dollars per promo. I think even Tyler Perry is like “Jesus, enough with these f&*kin’ Closer promos.”

If you can’t comprehend what you can buy with 385 million dollars, maybe this will help you out:
