In typical Shonda Rhimes fashion, Olivia Pope is one of the biggest baddest female bosses on television right now. The star of ABC’s political drama series, Scandal, tells the story of an illicit affair between Olivia Pope and the president of the United States and all the inner workings of her crisis management team as they take on high profile cases dealing with matters surrounding the White House. To make things even more interesting the co-executive producer of the show is George W. Bush’s former administration press aide, Judy Smith. It’s been four years since Scandal first premiered, now into season 6 we’ve decided to take a look back at how far the cast has come and see how much they are worth now:
10. Portia de Rossi
Estimated Net Worth: $20 million. Portia de Rossi, born as Amanda Lee Rogers is an Australian model and actress married to comedian and talk show host Ellen Degenres. Portia has a ton of acting credits to her name, her biggest roles have been on Arrested Development, Ally McBeal, Better Off Ted, Nip/Tuck and her current role as Elizabeth North on Scandal. She was also a part of the main cast on the early series Too Something and Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher — both only lasted for 22 episodes. She’s appeared in a bunch of television movies, the most notable was America’s Prince: The John F. Kennedy Jr. Story and done a few films, but nothing major. Her biggest was Cursed in 2005. Today her estimated net worth of $20 million comes from her leading roles on television, and she’s probably worth even more as she and Ellen DeGeneres register as a powerful A-list couple!
