Tara Lipinski’s Net Worth, Wiki and Bio

Tara Lipinski was born on 10 June 1982, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA which means that she is 37 years old and her zodiac sign is Gemini. Lipinski, whose nationality is American, is best known as an actress, and in that field she has worked on projects such as “Are You Afraid of the Dark” and “Superstore”. She is also a former competitive figure skater. Being successful in both fields, Tara gained recognition among audiences, which also poses some questions regarding her early life and relationship status, and we’ll talk about that in the article.

Net Worth

So just how rich is Tara Lipinski as of mid-2019? According to authoritative sources, this actress and figure skater has a net worth of over $4 million, with her wealth being accumulated from her career in the previously mentioned fields. However, Lipinski hasn’t spoken about her assets, such as vehicles and houses, but she is seemingly able to take care of herself and her family financially.

Relationship Status

Despite being a public figure, Tara prefers keeping some things behind closed doors, which also includes details from her personal life. However, we know that she has been married to Todd Kapostasy, a TV producer, since 24 June 2017.

The couple met when Tara presented Todd with his Sports Emmy Award, and their relationship blossomed from that moment on. Following their engagement, Todd took to social media and wrote that he has never been more happy in his entire life, adding that Tara is “the most beautiful, passionate, talented, and loyal person I’ve ever met, and I’m the luckiest guy on the planet right now”. The couple seems to be living a joyful and prosperous life together, which is all that matters. They have no children as of today, but who knows what the future holds for them.

Husband Todd Kapostasy

Tara’s husband Todd is best known as a TV producer, who has worked on projects such as “Davey Lives On: A Beyond the Wheel Film”, “The Pine Tar Incident: Making of Tar Wars”, “The Pine Tar Incident” and “Gifts of My Kin”.

Ethnicity and Background

Speaking about Lipinski’s ethnicity, she is Caucasian and has blonde hair and brown eyes, which suits her complexion. Judging from the photos available on the internet, Tara has a fit figure and takes good care of her appearance, indicating that she still puts time and effort into her looks.

Tara, born in a family of Polish ancestry, made her debut in ice skating in 1988, aged six. Two years afterwards, she had her first big competition and finished second in the Eastern Regional Championship. In the next year, she won the primary girls freestyle. As of 1999, she and her family relocated to Sugar Land, Texas, but she moved back to Delaware to continue training, then moved to Detroit where she trained with Richard Callaghan. Speaking about her education, Tara was a student of the University of Delaware. She spoke about her life in her book entitled “Tara Lipinski: Triumph on Ice : an Autobiography”.

Social Media

Tara is in the entertainment field, which naturally means that she is active on social media, which she uses to promote her work as well as to communicate with her fans. Lipinski has Twitter and Instagram accounts, and is followed by 100,000 on the former and 300,000 on the latter. Some of her latest posts on Twitter include a Tweet in which she wished one of her best friends a happy birthday. Besides that, she posted a photo of herself and her dog, with the caption reading “My big boy just needs a hug sometimes. Some people may say Dublin isn’t the best trained but I say “If you’re uncomfortable around my dog, I’m happy to lock you in the other room when you come over”.


Lipinski shares photos from her private life on Instagram, allowing her followers to take a closer look at what’s going on behind the scenes. She has recently posted a photo of herself and her boyfriend, with the caption reading “Happy Birthday to my person! How did I do life without him for so many years?!”. Her fans seem to have loved the photo, as they went on to write numerous sweet comments. One person told them how adorable they are, and many others agreed.

Acting Career

Tara made her acting debut in 1999, when she joined the cast of “Touched by an Angel”, and in the following period she remained busy, appearing in “The Young and the Restless”, “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” and “7th Heaven”. After that, he mainly appeared as a guest star in series such as “Generation Jets” and “Still Standing”. Overall, she has had 16 acting gigs and we believe there is more to come for her as she’s hardworking and talented.

Figure Skating Achievements

Some of the competitions Tara participated in include Olympics in ‘98 season, 1998 Skate TV Championships, 1998 Jefferson Pilot Financial Championships, in which she finished in first place, and 2002 Ice Wars, in which she also provided a prominent performance and finished in first place as well. She is praised for her ability that includes difficult jumping passes. Speaking about her former days as a figure skater, in one interview she said that she would often get up at 3 am and would be on ice by 3.30. She was inspired and determined to be an Olympian, thus she practiced after school as well.
