Since then she has continued to host television shows, where UK audiences tune in to see what clever line the Queen of Mean has up her sleeve. Currently she’s the host of a quiz show called Test The Nation.

Arlene Golonka – Worth $5 Million

When thinking of the carefree blonde, both eccentric in her wild and energetic personality while carrying a magnetism that attracts everyone, Arlene Golanka fits that image.

Although her career began in the late ’60s it continued on for 30 years before Golanka retired to teach aspiring young actors instead.
