Over the years, the name Shonda Rhimes has become synonymous with great television shows. The TV writer and producer is responsible for hit ABC dramas like How to Get Away with Murder, Scandal, Grey's Anatomy, and Private Practice.
Now according to the Hollywood Reporter, Rhimes is the "highest-paid showrunner in television."
Last year, Rhimes announced she would be ending her 15-year partnership with ABC and signing a multiyear deal with Netflix, as previously reported by the Inquisitr. The streaming giant soon announced the first eight projects being developed as a result of its new partnership with Rhimes.
It was later reported that Netflix would be paying Rhimes $150 million, but during Elle magazine's 25th annual Women in Hollywood celebration, Rhimes revealed this wasn't the case. While delivering her speech, the creative powerhouse said she allowed her salary to be reported incorrectly. According to Rhimes, women simply don't brag enough, instead they hide their accomplishments while men brag even when they don't deserve to. "The other day I came to this conclusion that men brag and women hide. Even when they don't deserve to brag, men brag — Trump, Kavanaugh — and when men do deserve to brag, they are good at it. They do it so well."
