Ellen DeGeneres Bounced Back...

Ellen may have taken a lashing when she first "came out", but she's more influential, and richer than before.  More importantly, I bet she has peace of mind too....

Talk show host, American Idol judge and all-around celebrity personality, Ellen DeGeneres lands between Steven Spielberg and David Letterman at number 23 on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 list.  “The Celebrity 100 is a measure of power based on money and fame,” Forbes explains on its website.

Forbes uses entertainment-related earnings and media visibility as measures of fame for its Celebrity 100 list. Media visibility includes exposure in print, television, radio, the Internet, specifically Facebook and Twitter.  DeGeneres, who is the third most followed user on Twitter with a total of 4,794,873 followers (behind Britney Spears and Ashton Kutcher), just launched her own record label eleveneleven, became a judge on American Idol and continues to host the Ellen Degeneres Show.

  1. Wow! I had no idea that Ellen was involved in so many other ventures besides her talkshow. I love Ellen, she has such an infectious personality. I think that her character outweighs her sexuality so that even close-minded people look past it.
