Candace Bushnell Net Worth: Candace Bushnell is an American author and producer who has a net worth of $40 million dollars. Born in Glastonbury, Connecticut, in 1958, Candace Bushnell studied at Rice University in Texas and at New York University. She sold her first children's story to a publisher when she was 19 years old. Bushnell continued to pursue her writing career and landed a job penning a humor column for the "New York Observer" in the early '90s. The column, "Sex and the City", was based on Bushnell's dating and social life. Within a few years, the columns were turned into an anthology and inspired the HBO TV series "Sex and the City" starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon. Bushnell has since written "4 Blondes", "Trading Up", "Lipstick Jungle", "One Fifth Avenue", "The Carrie Diaries", and "Summer and the City". Her novel, "Lipstick Jungle", was also adapted for a TV show that starred Brooke Shields. In 2005, she judged the reality show "Wickedly Perfect" and, two years later, began hosting her own talk show on Sirius Satellite Radio called "Sex, Success and Sensibility". Bushnell's eighth book, "Killing Monica", is due out in early 2015. She married to New York City Ballet dancer Charles Askegard in 2002, though they are now divorced.
