forbes unveils 2020 list of 100 richest self made women in the us

Forbes has released its annual list of the richest self-made women in the United States, with Rihanna, Kris Jenner and Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe Herd making the cut for the first time.

This year’s list includes 20 new spots, highlighting 100 of the wealthiest business owners, entertainers and company executives whose combined fortunes amount to $90billion. Their wealth was calculated by using stock prices on September 11. 

Many of the 2020 contenders have reclaimed their positions or have moved up on the list, while others have dropped in the ranks such as Kylie Jenner, who has lost her billionaire status.

Rihanna and Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe Herd are among this year's rising entrepreneurs. The 32-year-old singer is ranked 33, with a$ 600million fortune

The 23-year-old is listed as number 29, with a net worth of $700million, falling behind her sister Kim Kardashian, who took the number 24 spot, with $780million. 

It comes after Jenner drew criticism when she was crowned Forbes youngest ‘self-made’ billionaire in 2019 after her Kylie Cosmetics line was estimated to be worth $900million.

Critics argued Jenner wasn’t deserving of the title because she came from a wealthy family and was therefore not self-made. 

Forbes later revoked her billionaire title after documents showed her business was smaller than the family claimed. 

Among this year’s newbies and ‘newsmakers’, as branded by the magazine, is number 33, Rihanna, who has acquired a $600million net worth thanks to her cosmetic and lingerie line, Fenty.

Not too far behind is number 39, Whitney Wolfe Herd, the founder of dating app Bumble, who boasts a $575million net worth.

Jackson Warne surprised audiences when he admitted he’d only tried ’10 different foods’ in his entire life.

And after recently tasting watermelon, the 21-year-old son of cricketing legend Shane Warne has now given beer a taste for the first time.

On Tuesday, the SAS Australia star shared a video on Instagram, revealing to his followers: ‘I’ve actually never had a beer either. Who would have thought?’

‘And there’s no beer better to taste than Corona, because obviously [with] everything going on, and Dan’s (Victorian Premier Dan Andrews) also said, “Get on the beers,” he added.

After taking his first swig, he appeared to grimace, before saying: ‘That actually tastes pretty good. Hang on.’ 

As he took another sip, Jackson appeared confused by the new flavour sensation as it settled on his untrained palette. 

After a pause, he looked in the camera and said, ‘I don’t know, wait.’

Jackson is living with older sister Brooke Warne, 22, who is encouraging him to eat new things.

Taking two large bites of the summer fruit, Jackson didn’t appear too pleased with the taste as he shook his head and said ‘mmm’.

Sounding unimpressed, Jackson said it ‘tastes like water’, before giving the fruit a rating of four out of 10.

Convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby, 43, had to explain that it was tomato soup, and it was ‘good’ to eat. 

While filming SAS Australia in August, Jackson had the opportunity to eat a variety of foods he’d never tried before, including sushi, pineapple, rockmelon, mandarins and even steak. 

In an interview with news.com.au, he explained that his limited diet consists of: ‘Eggs, bacon, toast, cereal, burgers, nachos, chips, apples… that’s about it.’

The model went on to reveal his typical day on a plate starts with ‘eggs, bacon and an oat shake’ for breakfast, and he would eat ‘burgers, protein shakes, pasta or lasagna’ for lunch and dinner.

‘I don’t consider myself a celebrity at all, I think my dad is obviously a celebrity. The Warne last name is a celebrity, but I don’t think I’m famous or anything like that.’

He went on to say that while he hasn’t had much ‘life experience’, he signed up for SAS Australia to test himself, both physically and mentally.

melbourne storm coach craig bellamy breaks his silence on the nrl grand final blow up

Melbourne Storm coach Craig Bellamy has opened up about his viral meltdown. 

Bellamy was filmed swearing and attacking a chair in the coaching box during the NRL Grand Final at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium on Saturday night.  

His outburst was prompted by fears his team could lose to the Penrith Panthers in the final minutes of the game. 

Two of Melbourne’s best players had been sent off the field, and then Nathan Cleary crossed the line.

Bellamy said the stress simply became too much for him. 

‘Things started falling apart and I lost it. I haven’t seen it on TV but everyone’s telling me about it,’ he told the Daily Telegraph

‘I look like a bit of a d***head taking it out on the chair.’   

His meltdown was caught in all its glory and broadcast on national television.

The viral video wasn’t the first time Bellamy has been seen losing his head over an NRL match.

The Melbourne Storm coach reveals he suffers so much stress from the job he gets his blood pressure tested twice a year.

His outbursts have become well known in the sporting community.  

‘I’ve done it a few times and the TV cameras get me every time,’ Bellamy said.

‘It’s frustration, it’s pressure and it’s emotion. There’s no hiding from it.’

Bellamy said while he doesn’t like to get so worked up it is his way of letting off steam during tense moments.

The veteran coach will spent the next two days on the Sunshine Coast before heading up to the Gold Coast to see his daughter Rachel. 

He is hoping to have a few weeks of holidays and relaxation before making a decision on his coaching future.

Bellamy is being head-hunted by the Brisbane Broncos who are desperate to secure the sporting legend for the next season.

He has led the Melbourne Storm to victory through four premierships.

Bellamy says he will ‘certainly’ coach the Storm next year.

His side defeated the Penrith Panthers 26-20 on Saturday night.

They held onto the six-point lead despite playing with just 11 men for the final minutes after halfback Jahrome Hughes and utility Brandon Smith were sent to the sin bin. 

Penrith fought hard to erase a massive 22-0 deficit at half time, scoring twice in the last few minutes, but the Storm hung on to win 26-20.

In the nail-biting final minutes as the Panthers tried to claw their way back, with Nathan Cleary crossing the line, Bellamy blew up and walked to the back of the box yelling ‘f**k’.

‘They got to 10 points, I thought we could have got run down,’ Bellamy said after the game ended.

‘At the end of the day, they hung in there and, you know, it was a big relief when we got the ball back there. So it was great.’

After the Grand Final Bellamy made another stunning admission.

He said he didn’t believe the team was as talented as previous premiership-winning sides he’d coached – but had risen to the occasion.

‘Rugby league in Melbourne ain’t that big, you know. So that’s what we try and do. Like I say, they’re a really special bunch of guys. With all due respect, I don’t think they’re an overly talented team,’ he said.

The coach credited the senior members of the side as the driving force behind his its success.

‘I think the biggest thing – like, all of our leaders, our older blokes, our really good player, really care about the club and really care about the club and really care about their teammates. It’s not just about playing good footy,’ he said.

‘It’s about being grateful for what we’ve got, but also being aware that we’re representing not just ourselves, we’re representing something a little bit bigger.’
