/ 01:15 PM September 15, 2016

Colombian-American bombshell Sofia Vergara tops Forbes list of highest-paid TV actresses for the fifth year in a row, earning $43 million.

According to Forbes, Vergara’s earnings rose 66 percent over last year, and this increase was not because of her famous role as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on the TV show “Modern Family.” Her income mostly came from her big-time commercial and licensing deals, including a furniture brand, an anti-dandruff shampoo product, a coffee bar, and a soft-drink brand.

Trailing Vergara, 44, was Kaley Cuoco, who made $24.5 million in the same period. Her earnings are from her role as Penny at the CBS-produced sitcom “The Big Bang Theory.”

Cuoco was followed by “Grey’s Anatomy” actress Ellen Pompeo and “Law and Order: SVU” actress Mariska Hargitay who tied for 4th place, earning $14.5 million.
