"Men Brag and Women Hide"

Shonda. Rhimes. The purveyor of excellence.

At this point in time Ms. Rhimes is not playin with her name, her worth or her coin. Respect all of the above.

In a speech she delivered at the 25th annual Women in Hollywood event on Tuesday she let the world know "I am the highest-paid show runner in television." Rhimes has the receipts to support her declaration.

Her production company Shondaland has moved over to Netflix after Rhimes signed a multi year deal with the huge media streaming company in 2017. There are reports that the Netflix deal banked her a base salary of a couple million.

Ms. Rhimes has not disclosed the particular amount of her deal. However she stated that “When I made a deal with Netflix, I let them interview my salary wrong in the press, and then I did as few interviews as possible and I put my head down and worked. In other words, I hid. I’m getting this award for inspiring other women; how can I inspire anyone if I’m hiding?” She also said “The other day I came to this conclusion that men brag and women hide,"

Rhimes makes it clear this year she isn't hiding at all.
