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!
