Showbiz expert, Oprah Winfrey is back to number one on Forbes’ 100 most powerful celebrities in the world. She earned $77 million between June 2012 to June 2013 but Forbes said she is not the highest earner on the list. But that her money mixed with strong fame scores metrics like press mentions and social networking power pushed her to the top.
