(Newser) – Oprah Winfrey has been out of the top spot on Forbes' annual list of the 100 most powerful celebrities for two years now (she lost out to Jennifer Lopez last year and Lady Gaga the year before), but she's back at No. 1 this year. She's not the top earner on the list—she made $77 million between June 2012 and June 2013, $88 million less than last year—but she claimed the top spot for the fifth time ever thanks to her massive fame. "But what about her struggling network?" you say. Well, it could actually turn a profit this year, thanks in part to her big-name interviews. Click through for the top 10 or see Forbes for the full list.
