Poor Kourtney Kardashian. You think she has to borrow money from her sisters?

Eva Longoria -- $15 million

Bethany Frankel -- $12 million

Khloe Kardashian Odom -- $11 million

Tina Fey -- $11 million

Mariska Hargitay -- $10 million

Zooey Deschanel -- $9 million

Felicity Huffman -- $9 million

Ellen Pompeo -- $9 million

Kate Walsh -- $8 million

Teri Hatcher -- $8 million

Marcia Cross -- $8 million
