Forbes Lists Richest, Self-Made Women

Beyoncé is not number one.

0601_forbes-cover-self-made-women-06-21-2016-gate_976x447Forbes has unveiled its second annual America’s Richest Self-Made Women list, with Diane Hendricks—the co-founder of roofing supply company ABC Supply—taking the top spot.

Hendricks is reportedly worth $4.9 billion. That will come as no surprise to anyone who has had their roof replaced.

Oprah Winfrey was the runner-up on Forbes’ list, with a net worth of $3.1 billion. Judy Faulkner ($2.4 billion), Doris Fisher ($2.4 billion) and Johnelle Hunt ($2.3 billion) round out the top five.

Beyoncé, for those wondering, came in at the 57th spot. The singer using fake marital strife to sell records is worth about $265 million.
