The Richest Victoria’s Secret Angels Of All Time

Ladies and gentlemen, we are fast approaching that time of the year.  No I am not talking about Christmas silly, I am speaking about the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show!  I know we all watched previously to check out the musical acts of Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Usher, Kanye West and Maroon 5.  This year features Rihanna, The Weekend and Selena Gomez!  (ED. NOTE: Like we really watch for the musical acts, well maybe some of us do.)  However, there is also a fashion show, if you want to call it that.  LOL.  We know most of their names now we can know how which ones are the richest….
