Arianna Huffington Net Worth 2020 – Arianna Huffington is an author, philanthropist, television personality and owner of the independently liberal online news magazine, ‘The Huffington Post’. Originally from Greece, she moved to England when she was 16 and graduated from Cambridge University with an MA in Economics.
She was born to a journalist and management consultant Konstantinos and his wife Elli Stasinopoulos. Though she was close to her father, it was the relationship she shared with her mother that shaped her life.
Even during her formative years, she exhibited leadership skills for which she is still well-known. At 16 years of age, she moved to the United Kingdom to pursue her studies and enrolled in Girton College, Cambridge. During her college days, she joined the college debating society, Cambridge Union where she became the first foreign and third female president.
In 1972, she graduated with a master’s degree in Economics. After her graduation, she worked as a columnist, critic, and a television host. She also appeared in an edition of ‘Face the music’ along with Bernard Levin and began writing books taking editorial help from him.
In 1973, she wrote ‘The Female Woman’ which emerged as one of her career’s bestsellers. The book was a sensation and it questioned many early strains of the feminist movement. It brought her considerable amount of fame and success.
In 1978, she came out with her second book, ‘After reason’ which showed failure of Western society to satisfy the basic spiritual needs of man due to emergence of materialism.
The book didn’t receive the expected response from public, so she began working for the British editions of ‘Vogue’, ‘Cosmopolitan’, and newspapers such as ‘Daily mail’ and ‘The Spectator’.
In 1980, she moved to New York due to some personal issues. The following year saw the release of her biographical book, ‘Maria Callas – The Woman Behind the Legend’. The book sold extremely well and made her a big hit in the city and this recognition introduced her to the city’s social elite.
In 1994, she was accused of stealing themes of an unpublished four-volume PhD thesis of Lydia Gasman and using it in her biography of Pablo Picasso in 1988.
Gasman did not file any suit though. Columnist Maureen Orth also claimed that Arianna Huffington borrowed heavily for her 1993 book, ‘The Gods of Greece’.
In 1994, she gained national prominence during the unsuccessful senate bid by her then husband Michael Huffington.
She became famous as a reliable supporter of conservative and became one of the most influential speakers of the Republican Party.
In 1996, she teamed up with a liberal comedian Al Franken as conservative half of the ‘Strange Bedfellows’ during Comedy Central’s coverage of the U.S. Presidential elections of that year.
In 1998, she started doing a weekly radio show in Los Angeles called ‘Left, Right and Center’ that matched her, a ‘right-winger’, against the self-proclaimed centrist, Matt Miller and a leftist journalist, Robert Scheer.
In 2000, she opposed the NATO intervention during the Yugoslav wars and initiated the ‘Shadow Conventions’ which appeared at the Republican National Convention in Philadelphia and the Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles at Patriotic Hall.
In 2003, she ran as an independent candidate against Arnold Schwarzenegger in California’s recall elections but dropped out after a terrible campaign which made her position sink during polls where she eventually finished fifth, capturing 0.55% of the votes.
In 2004, she spoke for the College Democrats of America Convention which was held along with the 2004 Democratic National Convention.
In the following year, she became the panel speaker at the California Democratic Party State Convention which was held in Los Angeles. She is a regular panelist on the weekend radio program ‘Both side now with Huffington and Matalin’ hosted by Mark Green.
In November 2008, she joined the cast of an animated series, ‘The Cleveland Show’ where she lend her voice to the wife of ‘Tim, the bear’ also named Arianna. She made few appearances on shows such as ‘Roseanne’, ‘The L Word’, ‘How I Met Your Mother’, ‘Help Me Help You’, and the film ‘EdTV’.
