"Forbes" put out a list of 'America's Richest SELF-MADE Women,' 

....which immediately makes me think of OPRAH.  She was born into poverty in rural Mississippi to a teenage single mother, and raised by her grandmother.  She was raped at nine . . . got pregnant and lost a child at 14 . . . and since her family needed money, she started working at a radio station part-time while she was in high school.  Now, she's worth $3.1 billion.

I  WOULD NOT think of KYLIE JENNER, who basically started her career on third base thanks to her appearances on her family's reality shows, beginning when she was 10.  And yet, Kylie is on the list too . . . because "Forbes" wanted to sell some magazines.They put Kylie on the cover . . . and since she's worth $900 MILLION, they boast that she could become the youngest 'self-made' billionaire in history, beating Mark Zuckerberg, who did it at 23.  Kylie turns 21 next month.

Not everyone on the rich list is a household name, so here are the highlights:

#6:  Oprah, $3.1 billion

#27:  Kylie Jenner, $900 million

#36:  Madonna, $590 million

#46:  Celine Dion, $430 million

#48:  Judge Judy, $400 million.  And Barbra Streisand, also at $400 million.

#53.  Beyoncé, $355 million

#54.  Kim Kardashian, $350 million

#60.  Taylor Swift, $320 million

To be fair, Kylie did take her platform and capitalize on it . . . she now runs a cosmetics company worth $800 million, and she owns 100% of it. BUT...HARDLY SELF MADE.  Anyone that starts with a celebrity family and reality TV show can not be counted as "self made". Please, thats like saying the QUEEN OF ENGLAND is the UK's richest "self made" Royal.
