  1. "The Parkers" Salary & Royalties

Countess Vaughn, an actress and all around funny woman, has a net worth of $1.5 million. Although not a real countess, as her name would suggest, she is originally from Idabel, Oklahoma. She started her career in entertainment singing for Star Search in 1988 when she was nine years old. She subsequently won the overall junior championship. This got her some attention in the TV world and was soon out auditioning in Los Angeles. She started to get parts in several tv shows, where she was frequently cast to sing.

Her most notable roll, even to date, was being on the "Moesha" show on UPN (the BET of the 90's). Although she never really struck gold in an acting roll since, she has managed to stay alive in front of the camera. And, like any marginally successful actor from the 90's.. she went on "Celebrity" fit club! But it turns out she was about as successful at losing weight, as she was reinvigorating her acting career. She was the ONLY person ever to gain weight on the show (she gained 4 pounds). She stated that this was because she was "simply trying to lose weight at the wrong time"… translation: I hid Cheetos and cookies under my bed at night. But she is still trying at the acting game, staring in such renowned hits, as "Thugaboo: Sneaker Madness" and the smash hit followup, "Thugaboo: A Miracle on D-Roc's Street."

"The Parkers" Salary & Royalties

In the final season of "The Parkers," Mo'Nique and Countess Vaughn earned $55,000 per episode. There were 22 episodes. That worked out to $1.21 million for that season.

In April 2023, Mo'Nique sued Paramount and CBS over allegedly unpaid royalties for her UPN sitcom "The Parkers." In her lawsuit, she claimed the companies "artificially depressed [the show's] profitability to retain millions that would otherwise be contractually due" to Mo'Nique and the show's writers. The Parkers produced 111 episodes between 1999 and 2004. By producing over 100 episodes, the series qualified for syndication. Mo'Nique has claimed that the show generated $800 million dollars in syndication deals between 2004 and 2009. It generated millions more over the next decade + and even more millions when it was sold to Netflix in 2020. She has estimated that The Parkers has generated $2 billion in revenue since going off the air. Mo has claimed that none of these profits have gone to her or her co-star Countess Vaughn. Mo has further claimed that the show cost a total of $60 million to produce during its entire run.
