The tea is piping hot!
Tamara Tattles is spilling some excellent tea about the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast!
According to the gossip outlet, the RHOSLC cast only makes $6k an episode.
“Mary [Cosby] and the rest of the cast signed a five-year deal limiting their increases until it ends. They made $2k per episode for season one. Then, they all got “thank you bonuses” in the form of a renegotiated salary of $6,500 per episode for season 2 as opposed to a 10% increase. They will receive increases for season three based on their contributions to the series. Expect Jen Shah and Meredith [Marks] to reach the $9-10k range and the others to get just 10%. The newbie will probably only get 10% also in order to keep production costs down,” the insider claims.
This means that Mary walked away from $18k when she decided to skip the season 2 reunion. However, the insider notes that it may have been worthwhile for her to do so based on the current scandal Mary is facing.
“She did not show, and her attorney told Shed Media that she wants to receive her final paychecks ASAP, seemingly signaling the end to her participation on the series. People at both the network and production company (level) believe she is upset about a bad edit. So they are going to wire her $6,000 per episode to her and leave her be. Quote from exec: “Bye, Mary!”
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
