I'm not sure she cares where the money comes from. She's a business woman who happened to
start out as an entertainer.

It's like you being an awesome programmer who builds a business up and ends up spending more time in meetings, running around the country side, dealing with people, and growing an awesome enterprise that challenges you and rewards you with a cool billion. Sure, you were a developer, and you still do that, but you'd have to accept that you're a business man now. Your code got you started, your business acumen got you where you are.

Personally: I'd be happy if I made that sort of money sweeping streets.
cheers
