Who’s The Highest Paid Real Housewife?

June 04, 2012 12:00 PM by Shayla Perry

From Atlanta to Orange County, it sure does pay to be a “Real Housewife”! And after all of the table flipping, wig snatching, and drama, some of them are “very rich, b—h!” But which of Bravo‘s leading ladies is bringing home the most bank?

According to a report from RadarOnline, Bravo’s investing quite a bit in the Housewives franchise…and with good reason, as the shows consistently bring in millions of viewers each week.

So who are they paying the most?

Vicki Gunvalson brings home the biggest check from Bravo on The Real Housewives of Orange County, earning $450,000 per season, followed by Tamra Barney, who makes $350,000 a season. Gretchen Rossi gets $300,000, with Alexis Bellino making $200,000, and newcomer Heather Dubrow at the bottom of the pay scale with $30,000 (kind of embarrassing!).

Over at The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa Vanderpump is at the top with $250,000 a season, followed by Adrienne Maloof and Kyle Richards‘ $200,000, and Taylor Armstrong at $175,000.

Surprisingly, Brandi Glanville makes more than original cast member Kim Richards, bringing in $125,000 per season to Kim’s $100,000, which is the same amount that newbie Yolanda Hadid is reportedly being paid. (Still not good for Heather Dubrow!)

BUT, out of all the shows — from The Real Housewives of New Jersey, to The Real Housewives of New York City (and the Miami one that we’re still trying to forget) — no one is being paid more than The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s NeNe Leakes, who earns a whopping $750,000 per season. Bam!

    Love the housewives shows. Who are my favorites and should get paid the most?

    Beverly Hills – Kyle Richards and Camille are the most interesting. I’m so bored with Lisa and Adrienne, Yawn!

    Atlanta – NeNe and Kim are entertaining. Phedra is strange. Sheree is BORING. Kandi is nasty, YUCK!

    Orange County – Vicki is psycho and needs to go! Why is she paid so much? I’m getting tired of Alexis too, but she is still interesting because of her co-dependent relationship with her husband. I love Tamara and Gretchen. Heather stirred things up which I liked.

    New York – Bring back Jill! Carole looks like she could be interesting with her background. She is smart and well connected too. I’m getting tired of Ramona, her manic personality and her husband.

    New Jersey – None of the women are that interesting, but almost all of the men on that show are interesting. They outshine their wives! I also like how it is very family oriented.
