Cast Of Hot In Cleveland: How Much Are They Worth Now?
Hot in Cleveland was TV Land’s first original scripted series, and it’s safe to say the show was a huge success! The popular sitcom ended after a generous six season run, but still remains relevant with weekly re-runs and a well remembered cast. The show hilariously tackled the taboo topics around single women over the age of 40 as they struggle through relationships and careers, with the support of a tight knit group of girlfriends. Recorded in front of a live studio audience, the show produced a lot of laughs for viewers over the years and gained a huge fan following, but where are the popular cast members today?
