Kate Gosselin is making bank for being a mom to her eight kids on camera. The reality TV star pockets a quarter of a million dollars per episode of TLC's Kate Plus 8, according to TV Guide.
This kind of per-episode salary is up there with some TV veterans. Check out what some of your favorites make:
Hugh Laurie (House) $400,000+
Laurence Fishburne (CSI) $350,000
Patrick Dempsey (Grey's Anatomy) $250,000
Jon Hamm (Mad Men) $100,000
Anna Paquin (True Blood) $75,000
Jane Lynch (Glee) $50,000
Ashley Tisdale (Hellcats) $30,000
Matthew Morrison (Glee) $30,000
Snooki (Jersey Shore) $30,000
Crazy to think that Ms. Gosselin is making as much as Patrick Dempsey! The good doctor may need a defibrillator when he finds this out.
Are you surprised some of these stars make as much as they do?
