Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has earned an estimated $12 million from TV and a book deal since leaving office, ABC News reports.
The figure is a "conservative estimate," and based on public records and news accounts, the article says. She’s earning about $250,000 per episode for her reality show on TLC (there are eight installments) and reportedly received $7 million for her first book deal.
Still, it’s unclear how much she’s earning from her Fox News contract or a second book deal, the article adds. On top of that, Palin pulls in about $100,000 in speaking fees per event.
