Ellen DeGeneres – Real Estate
Ellen DeGeneres is one the biggest names in daytime TV; however, few people know she is also a substantial retail tycoon as well. With her wife Portia de Rossi, she has bought and renovated at least 12 homes since she has become a famous TV star.
Her most successful sale was flipping one mansion for $40 million, which ultimately netted her a sweet $15 million profit. Ellen herself is quoted saying, “I’ve never bought to sell. I always say: ‘This is it. I’m never moving.’ People laugh at me now.”
