8 C-List Celebs Who Make More Than You Think!

judge judy
There isn't enough room in Hollywood for every celebrity to be on the A-list. Some famous and formerly famous people aren't on the cover of magazines every week and that relegates their status to somewhere around the C or the D-list. But before we discount these fringe stars let's not forget they're people too, and rich ones!

Yup, the secret truth in Hollywood is that through a slew of syndication deals, good brand management, and occasionally embarrassing endorsement deals these folks have been able to turn their fame into big bucks. They may be under your radar, but that's just because they're really busy counting all their money. Click through to see how much each of these C-listers is raking in!

Click on each C-lister's image you'll find out how they got so rich>>

    Let's get a few things straight: Hewitt is on a current hit network TV show. She's not “C-List” by any stretch. And Simmons and Hagar are both rock icons. Let's not dismiss a couple of legends as being C-list simply because they aren't on “American Idol” every week. Any of THOSE singers would kill to have either Hagar or Simmons' legacy. Judge Judy? Sure. But not Hewitt and certainly not the rock stars.

    Not Kim Kardashian, ad nauseum? She and her ilk are by far lamer celebrities than Jennifer Love-Hewitt – who, by the way, is hardly a C-Lister.

      Good call!

    Judge Judy is not lame. She is an extremely intelligent woman who has made a great career for herself in one of the most popular syndicated shows ever. More power to her!

    Who are these arrogant wealthy showoffs[douches] and how do they affect my existance? Do they cater to the out of work people? help with birth control or stop STD's, Help sick people? Do they help military families? Do they set styles and show young men how to pick up there pants? Maybe they are just a bunch of rich clowns who need canned laughter.

      You need to lighten up. These people's good fortune didn't cause your bad fortune. They don't owe anybody anything.

    Judge Judy is MEAN and a sorry excuse for a judge. She invites the cases there and then berates the people and embarasses them in front of the world. What’s good about that?

    Caroline and Jo – Your list of who is “C” list is retarded. Most of these people are A list. Magic Johnson. Kathy Ireland? Re-brush up on your definitions.
