Do You Believe These Real Housewives Salaries?!?!


As fans of the Real Housewives  were always nosey and want to know not only how much the housewives are worth but how much they actually make from appearing on the various Housewives franchises.

Rumors are always swirling with speculations about how much the housewives make and who really earns the most money.  RealityTea has a breakdown of the Housewives reported salaries.

According to new reports Bravo was pretty desperate to re-charge the RHONY cast and they were willing to open their wallets to make it happen. Bravo went after former supermodels, celebrity chefs in hopes they would join the cast but instead they had to settle for Bethenny Frankel. Bravo is rumored to have agreed to pay Bethenny $1 million + bonuses depending on the success of season 7.

So how do the other Housewives salaries compare to Bethenny’s?

RHOA start NeNe Leakes reportedly is making $1.5 million for season 7 but has hinted that she actually makes more.  While RHONJ Teresa Giudice is the highest paid Housewife on that franchise and made $700,000 for season 6. Jacqueline Laurita claims she was paid $750,000 to return for a few episodes but no ones believing that. While reports say that Melissa Gorga earns anywhere from $250,000 – $600,000 a season.

In Beverly Hills, most of the ladies earn anywhere from $450,000-$500,000 a season but Lisa Vanderpump and Eileen Davidson lead the pack in salaries. Eileen Davidson earns $750,000 for season 5 and Lisa Vanderpump  reportedly negotiated a big reaise after season 4 plus she gets an additional salary from her Vanderpump Rules spinoff.

Andy’s favorite Housewife Vicki Gunvalson is the highest paid lady on RHOC earning an estimated $500,000 this season. Although there are other reports saying she’s commanding $750,000 for putting her relationship with Brook Ayers back in the hot seat.

Miami housewives make the least of any of the Housewives franchises.  Adriana de Moura and Joanan Krupa made just $75,000 for season 3. while the other housewives of Miami only made $50,000.

Do you think any of these salaries are real? Do you think these Housewives derserve their salaries ? Should they make more or less? Let’s Discuss!

  • If these salaries are correct then it makes a lot more sense why these ladies go to the lengths they do to stay on these shows. I can’t imagine embarrassing myself to the extent that they do for 100-250K a year (as has previously been reported) But One million+ ?….hmmmmm…..

    • There’s no way they make the kind of money that’s being discussed. It’s CABLE TV for starters. Also, these are attention-hungry people. They would roll in the mud for $1.50

  • The salaries actually seem plausible to me, especially with the popularity of some of the housewives. I think the ball park for Nene and Bethany are probably pretty close….they both think they’re far superior, and I actually see them demanding that. The difference is Nene actually seems to promote Bravo and the franchise, while Bethany seemed almost to try and hide the fact.

    Okay one thing though, is Vicki Gunvalson really considered Andy’s favorite, doesn’t seem like it.

  • I feel its pointless to speculate at this time unless they all come forward with legitimate proof of their salaries but, I could see Eileen getting paid much more then the veteran cast considering she is an actual celebrity.

  • I could understand why Nene would make more than other Atlanta housewives, but I’m not really buying that she makes more than any other housewife across the board… that doesn’t make sense to me!

      • Yes, Atlanta has the most viewers, which brings in the most advertising dollars, which brings in more revenue to pay the ladies. Nene Leak’s big personality is the reason for this! Bloop!!!

  • Idont believe any of it. But none of the wives put this out there why accused Jacqueline lol … the hate is real .

    • That’s the only one I don’t believe, Nay. Jacqueline is not worth 700k for only two episodes! I could see if that was Camille Grammar or even Jill Zarin.

  • Im not surprised by any of the numbers, that includes Eileen’s well. Whoever her agent is doing a bang up job.
