May 30, 2017  |  

You don’t really think of celebrities also being chefs and owning restaurants, but that’s another way they build their wealth. Let’s take some cues from these celebrities that know how to dominate in entertainment and food.

Snoop Dogg

This West Coast rapper is insanely popular worldwide. It’s not just his songs, but also his exuberant and funny personality that will definitely have you laughing. Why wouldn’t he be a great host of a TV show? You can find Snoop on Vh1’s “Martha Stewart & Snoop Dogg’s Potluck Dinner Party” where they cook for their celebrity friends.

Serena Williams

Mom-to-be Serena is not only one of the biggest tennis stars in the world, but she is also a business woman. She invests in athletics, fashion and is even a franchise owner of Jamba Juice. Jamba Juice is known for their fruit smoothies and healthy pudding cups.

Patti Labelle

Famous singer Patti Labelle can cook her butt off. We’re sure you remember the popular Patti’s Sweet Potato Pie a couple of Thanksgivings ago. They were sold out EVERYWHERE and memes swarmed the internet about how good her pies were. Since then, she has expanded to banana pudding and other items sold exclusively at Wal-Mart.

Laila Ali

Knock-out boxing beauty Laila Ali, daughter of Muhammad Ali, is a beast in the ring and a beast in the kitchen. Making her famous recipes like Oven Fried Chicken, she can be seen whipping up delicious meals on The Cooking Channel, FYI TV, The Steve Harvey Show and more.

Magic Johnson

Retired basketball player Magic Johnson knows a thing or two about investments and being successful after his basketball career. In addition to having ownership in multiple sports teams, add Starbucks, Burger Kings, and TGIFridays to the list. Magic Johnson Enterprises is valued at around $1 billion dollars.
