Since the late 1980s, actress Katey Sagal has been an almost constant presence on the small screen thanks to her roles in a variety of television shows.
Some of her most famous roles include Peg Bundy in “Married … with Children,” Leela in “Futurama,” Cate Hennessy in “8 Simple Rules,” Gemma Teller Morrow in “Sons of Anarchy,” and most recently, Louise Goldufski in “The Conners.”
Thanks to her many famous acting roles, as well as her music career, Katey Sagal has become a very wealthy woman. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the 67-year-old television star has an estimated net worth of $30 million.
She shares some of this wealth with her husband, Kurt Sutter. The two married in 2004. He is a writer and a producer known for his work on “The Shield” and “Sons of Anarchy.”
Sagal and Sutter bought a home together the year after they married. This residence was located in Los Angeles in the Hollywood Hills. They purchased this home for $3.7 million. Five years later, in 2010, they put the home up for sale with a price tag of $4.75 million. They did not receive that amount, however. Instead, the home sold for $3.8 million. The purchaser of the home was Rickey Minor. He is known for his role as a musician for “American Idol.”
Having sold this home, Katey Sagal and Kurt Sutter then spent $3.7 million for a new home. This residence was on 1.5 acres and was located in a gated community in Bel Air. The previous owner of this home was Marc Cherry. He is best known as the creator of the television series “Desperate Housewives.”
