Alyssa Milano's Net Worth In 2024 and If She Really Needs a Fundraiser for Her Son's Baseball Team

Alyssa Milano at the 2024 Golden Globes

Alyssa Milano's net worth in 2024 may not be as high as it was in her Charmed heyday, but it's probably significantly higher than most Americans' entire lifetime of earnings. Still, that hasn't stopped her from sharing a GoFundMe for $10,000 for her son's baseball team's trip to Cooperstown, New York, for the Little League World Series, sending social media into a tizzy of criticism for the arguably tone-deaf move.

She's since responded to the backlash, saying, "I’m getting media inquiries about whether I have financially contributed to my son’s baseball team. I’ve paid for uniforms for the entire team and coaches, thrown bday parties and sponsor any kid who can’t afford monthly dues. The kids also do fundraising themselves—car washes, movie nights, and many other fun things! Thank you to all who have contributed to the gofundme! You’ve made things easier for these boys and their families."

With Milano's fundraising attempt in the news, here's what to know about Alyssa Milano's net worth in 2024, how she made it and how she lost some of it.

How did Alyssa Milano become famous?

Born Dec. 19, 1972, Milano was born and raised in Brooklyn's Bensonhurst neighborhood, the daughter of connected parents: Her father worked in film as a music editor and her mother was a fashion designer and talent manager.

When Milano was 7 years old, her babysitter took her to an audition for a traveling production of Annie without telling Milano's parents—and Milano nailed it, becoming one out of four girls to get the role out of an audition pool of 1,500.

After the Annie tour wrapped, Milano worked in theater in off-Broadway projects, then made her screen debut in 1984 in the film Old Enough. The same year, she starred in the role of Samantha on Who's the Boss, which premiered that September and made her a household name.

What is Alyssa Milano's net worth in 2024?

Alyssa Milano's net worth in 2024 is estimated to be in the $10 million range, per Celebrity Net Worth.

Her husband, David Bugliari, had an estimated net worth of $5 million. Bugliari was a partner at Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and is now part of Range Media Partners as a talent agent. He counts Bradley Cooper, Vince Vaughn, Shailene Woodley, Casey Affleck, Halle Berry and, yes, Milano, among his clients, so it's unlikely they're hurting for cash unless they're spending like they have Elon Musk-level funds.

That said, Milano did have some financial issues in the past.

In 2017, Milano and Bugliari sued her former business managers Hellie, Hoffer and Company, LLP (HHC) for $10 million, alleging "negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud and theft," according to documents obtained by Variety. In the lawsuit, Milano and Bugliari claimed that HHC made eight mortgage payments late over a 13-month period, PEOPLE reported, and missed credit card and tax payments, leaving the couple "millions of dollars in debt." They also alleged that HHC forged Milano's signature on a $150,000 wire transfer. HHC denied any wrongdoing, telling Variety that Milano and Bugliari's finances were "like the Johnny Depp situation," insinuating that the couple were grossly overspending relative to their income levels.

In June 2019, PEOPLE reported that HHC settled with Milano and Bugliari for an undisclosed but satisfactory sum.

How much does Alyssa Milano make?

Milano has worked steadily in TV and film since she was a child. After reaching adulthood, she worked not just as an actress, but also a producer and executive producer on several projects. Her income varies based on the film and TV show and their respective budgets, but she's had starring roles in several series since Who's the Boss ended, including:

  • Melrose Place

How much did Alyssa Milano get paid for Charmed?

Milano reportedly made $90,000 per episode of Charmed on the low end, while her former co-star Rose McGowan previously claimed that Milano made as much as $250,000 per week on the series and behaved in an "appalling" manner toward the crew and her castmates.

Milano's dynamic with co-stars Holly Marie Combs and Shannen Doherty has come under a microscope following Doherty's release of her own podcast, Let's Be Clear. Doherty and Combs alleged that Milano got Doherty fired from Charmed. Milano didn't comment on the allegations directly, but did note that she is "gentle and forgiving."
