You probably know her better as Meredith Grey, but actress Ellen Pompeo has been named the highest paid actress in television. TheÂ Grey’s Anatomy star has inked a new two year deal, which includes more than $550, 000/episode, plus producing creds on the show, as well. Ellen is now raking in a cool $20 mil/year, and recently sat down to address the money she’s earning. Get it, girl! It’s not a sun flare. It’s not a fire ball, at all! In fact, it was METEOR that was spotted over Michigan last night.
